Young Son Discovers Crime — Flat
Was Robbed of Jewelry and Money.
With h>r skull crushed, Mr?. Margaret Keoler
was found dead in her home. a four-room flat, on
the second floor of No. v - East One-hundred-and
fourteenth-st.i yoptcrda>i The police say she was
murdered for robbery^ I They say they have, a
strong suspicion as to who the murderer was, and
hope to make an arrest soon. ' The murderer is
a man. they assert. The weapon used was an Iron
bolt llfte^n Inches lons, such ns Is Used in bridge
or >:i:-!rr construction. Mrs. Keoler was thirty-six
years eld.
'i he woman t.-j»i« murdered in the kitchen, and
had resisted desperately. The murderer then
drap;ed her body into the bedroom and threw it on
the bed. From the kitchen," through the parlor
■ lining room adjoining, and Into the bedroom, was
■a trail of blood. The murderer, having accom
plished Ms work, wiped the iron bludgeon on tho
kitchen tablecloth and escaped. The doors were
locked, and it is not known how ho got away..
Missing from the flat were jewelry worth $400 and
*:> " in cash. Tho Jewelry, which included diamonds,
Mr?. K>cl<*r usually wore.
The Keeler family consisted of John, the father,
employed as a d» livery man by a department store
company; the wife, and the two children. James.
twelve years oM, and Marie, nine years old. The
father cot up as usual yesterday, nnd. after break
far-;, went to work. The children bad breakfast
and were sent away to school.
The children came home at nooo. Marie rang the
bell, but got no response. She was still knocking
when "Jimmy." the brother, arrived. Together
they pounded en the doors for some time, and
finally they decided that their mother had gone
downtown shopping;. Mrs. Peter Munday, the Janl
trc-ss, pave ti em ;i hurried luncheon, and they went
back to school.
After school the children a^ain tried vainly to
get In. Finally "Jimmy" climbed up the fire
escape, telling Marie to wait.
He found his mother's body, and made frantic
efforts to arouse her. Then he ran screaming;
into the hall and down th- stairs.
"My mamma! My mamma!" he screamed. "Some
body's killed my mamma!' 1
I'uiice came at once. They drove everybody out
of thi? house except tie tenants, and then made a
minute examination of the flat
They learned that a nan had called o:i Mrs.
Keele r at least twice before, and on each occasion
had received something to pat. The fact that th<»
table was set v. : ; fu the murder v as done ut once
served to link thfl visitor of former occasions
with the crime
It was from the husband, who came home in re
sponse to an urgent message by telephone, that the
l olice learned of. the robbery. They decided that
the visitor had come prepared to rob, and "ii the
pretext of wanting something to eat had been ad
mitted, and had then killed Mrs. Keeler.
At a late hour the police were still in charge of
the Keeler flat.
The police think they have an important dew in
the bloody marks found on the tablecloth, where
the murderer evidently wiped bis hand:;. On the
cloth appears the well defined imprint of a thumb,
indicating it to be of unusual shape.
Australian Preacher, in San Fran
cisco. Sorry He Did Not Kill.
San Francisco, Nov. 28.— The Rev. Isaac Selby.
of .Australia, who recently lost a case In court
here, shot at Superior Judge Hebbard to-day
while the latter was on the bench. The bullet
came within an inch of the Judge's head and
lodged In the back of his chair. Selby was at
once removed to the city prison and charged
with an attempt to commit murder.
Selby recently was sued for divorce. He con
ducted his own defence, but was unsuccessful,
a decree against him being granted.
Judge Hebbard, who issued the decree, was
trying a case to-day when Selby arose from a
seat in the courtroom and fired at the judgf,
who rushed from the bench and erappled with
his assailant, prventing him from firing another
shot. For a time great excitement prevailed.
When quiet was restored it was learned that the
judge had not been Injured.
Before being taken to his cell Selby said: "I
shot at Judge Hebbard because that seems the
only way for a man to get justice in this coun
try. My only regret is that I seem to have
bungled matters considerably. My intention
was to kill him, but I was a trifle nervous."'
His Reply to a Courteous Xote Disr
gusts Mississippia ns.
Jackson, Miss. Nov. 28.— Governor Vardaman
to-day receiver] a telegram from President
Francis of the St. Louis Exposition stating that
President Roosevelt had visited and greatly a< -
mired the Mississippi Building while at the fair
on Saturday.
.The Governor sent a reply containing the fol
lowing parapgraph:
It is, of course, gratifvin* to the people of
Mississippi to know that they have done one
thing that the present President of the United
States approves. Doubtless the' President's ad
iiiinttion of the Mississippi Building is due to
his admiration of Jefferson Davis of whose
lust home It is a replica.
Many papers here nnd throughout the State
erely criticise Governor Verdaman for his
churlish reply to Mr. Fran.-isa courteous note.
Ten U. S. Craft Caught Near New-
Brunswick and Fined.
Baatport, Me., Nov. Ten American fishing
craft, including eight sailing: vessels and two steam
boats, have been seized by the Canadian fisheries
protective cruiser Curlew, and fined for illegal fish-
Ing In the Canadian waters of a tributary >•: Pas
samaquoddy Bay, near St. George, N. B. The fish
ing craft were seized near St. George last night,
though nu announcement of this procedure was
not made public until to-day. /
Three specific Charges were preferred against the
vessels— that they had fished on Sunday, that they
had legally caught fi.«h in their possession, and
that they had seined illegally in Canadian water.*.
For the drat two offences each boat whs hne,i $ioo,
and for the last 1200. In addition to tins all seine*
and Sab were confiscated.
It l- understood that the tine* will be aid and
that the entire matter win be disposed of without
involving any International question. The aggregate
value of the craft is about 120.000. The seizure is
the most extensive that has been made by a Cana
dian cruiser for many years.
Washington. Nov. 28.— Taking their rue from the
statements contained in the Eahtport dispatch.
State Department officials are not expecting that
the seizure of the American fishing: vessels will he
ma l« an issue between tht governments of Canada
and the United States. Bo far nothing has been
heard about the matter except the unofficial In
formation contained in the dispatch, which indi
cates an amicable disposition of the affair. In -■-<*
present instance the question of extra-territoriality
appears not to have been raised, and th« vessels
were not confiscated, which has happened in the
case of seizures heretofore made. Gather of these
features Is usually sufficient to make the settlement
of th») controversy n. matter of diplomatic negotia
tions. ____^_^^_____ '* '

Demand on Canadian Roads for
$100,000 Had Been Refused.
St. Paul, Nov. 28.— A dispatch to 'The St.
Paul Dispatch" from Winnipeg says that it has
just been disclosed there that three months ago
a band of desperadoes demanded of the Cana
dian Pacific and Canadian Northern railroads
(100,000, threatening to wreck their trains if
the money was refused. Detectives were em
ployed by dozens, but could not get a clew
to the blackmailer?. Finally an ultimatum was
delivered to the railroad officials, which they
Then began a series of attacks upon the trains.
The first of these took place on September 1,
when the train carrying Lord Minto, the late
Governor Genera; of Canada, and his party, who
were making their farewell tour of the Do
minion, was wrecked at Sintaluta by running
into an open switch, and Into a freight that
was standing on the siding waiting for it to
pass. Fi\? persons were killed outright, and
many others were Injured. <»n September 11
the Canadian Pacific Railroad's transcontinen
tal train was held up by two armed men at
Mission Junction, B. C, and booty to the value
of several thousand dollars was taken. This
was the first train holdup In the history of the
Canadian railroads.
Innumerable attempts on trains, all of which
hay( been kept secret by the railway authori
ties, have beep, made, but the watch has been
so sharp that most of these have been frustrat
ed. For weeks, when the disasters were most
frequent, every bridge on the western lines was
watched, the railroad companies fearing that
they would be blown up.
They Strip Victim and Throw Him
Into ley Ditch.
After being held up, robbed of his money and
clothes and left for dead on the frozen high
way, Andrew Taylor, a farmhand, of Sound
Bench, Conn., is now a raving maniac in the
Rye lockup as a result of his experience. When
Taylor WU found early yesterday morning he
was nearly dead, and had to be assisted to
Police Headquarters. After thawing out he
attacked a tramp w!h> was being sheltered for
the night and nearly killed him. Drs Wolf and
Bassett, who examined Taylor, pronounced him
insane, and to-da;' County Judge Platt, at
White Plains, will commit him to the Hudson
River State Hospital for the Insane, at Pough
Taylor said he was walking from Rye to
Sound Beach, and when in a lonesome section
along the New-York and Stamford Railway,
near the Port Chester powerhouse, he was held
up by three men. who knocked him down with
a club and took ?«• I** he had In his pockets and
then stripped him of a new suit and shirt he
wore. Alter kicking him in the chest and
Stomach, they cast him into a ditch which was
partly filled with Icy water. He had enough
strength left to crawl out of the ditch, or he
said he would have drowned.
Almost naked, he ran to 't>< k house of John
Reardon, at Enst Rye, where he told his story.
The Rye police were pent for, ami when they
could not get any trace of Taylor's assailants
they took Taylor, who had become uncons< loub,
to the Rye police station.

In General, It Would Eliminate
Arrests in Civil Cases.
Sheriff Erlanger yesterday outlined to a Trib
une reporter the text of the bill which he will
Introduce at the next session of the New- York
Legislature. Heretofore there has been some
doubt as -to just what bill the Sheriff Intended
to Introduce. Yesterday he said:
"The bill will be a peneral one to abolish all
laws providing for personal arrest in civil cases
or execution against the body, after Judgment.
In general, the scheme of abolition Is not intend
ed to include contempt cases or actions in the
so-called journeyman or wage earner cases. That
law is just.. It protec s domestics and journey
men who have furnished material and wages up
to $00. This journeyman law Is a recent act of
the legislature, and I think it is Just. It pre
vents an unscrupulous employer from taking an
unjust advantage."
Judge Pry or said:
'1 am always in favor of abridging the riprht
to arrest in civil action and proceedings. The
laws on this matter have been greatly abused.
In fraud casea, for instance, let them proceed
against the fraudulent one criminally and pun
ish him if guilty No man slu>uM be arrested
