clad and had been in the bushes for about twelve
ttours. Effort* to establish the woman's identity
have thus far failed. An autopsy by Coroners
Physician Curtain showed that the woman was
smothered to death.
The woman's eyes -were blu* and the hair brown.
She had small teeth, except the two upper ones in
the middle of the mouth, which were large and
protruded slightly. She was five, feet two and one
half inches tall and weighed about one hundred an.]
The theory of the police i" that the body wan
brought to the spot where it was found after the
murder. It is their opinion that the murderer was
familiar with the territory, and that the crime
was committed not far" from the Telham Road.
The dead girl was evidently not a resident of
"Weft Chester, as persons living There did not recall
ever having seen here in the streets of the village.
She is believed to have h^en a domestic.
Pelham Rosd. where the girl was found. Is a
quirt spot. There are. few houses, and they are
scattered. Thick berry bushes, rank vegetation
end weeds prow in profusion. The ground from the
Bide where the body was hidden, drops down sev
eral feet and a person passing would rarely dis
cover any object screened by the bushes.
The body was found soon after 1 o'clock in the
' afternoon by Mrs. James Black, at Ho. I*B East
T6th-st.. who was visiting friends near by. Mrs.
Black mi picking- flower* alar* Pelham Road and
had stepped down from the road among: the bushes.
A* she stooped over a bush a woman's black ox

attention. Further search revealed the body fifteen
or twenty feet away.
Mrs- Black hurriedly left the place, and. meeting

and Detective Sergeant Price, of The Bronx De
tective Bureau, at once assigned several men to
• the case, and they ri^ve been working ever Fine*
•without success. Coroner O'Gorman also went
to the scene, and later to the morgue.
Both shoes bore imprints of mud. showing that
the. girl must have, been dragged into the bushes.
Beside the body was an empty dress suit case. It
bor^ no initials. The shoes bore the name of A.

C The police believe that the sir! may have worn a
ring which bore her Initials or name, and that her
assailant carried it away to prevent speedy id»ntl
* The girl had been criminally assaulted, and it is
taottgbt that, on her attempting to resist assault
by screaming and struggling, a hand was placed
over her mouth to hush her cries, and m that way
she was slowly suffocated. _
The police are working nit the theory that tn»
•body was brought to its hiding place in a wagon,
and are trying to find if any wagons passed along
the Pelham road about midnight Friday or in
the early hours of Saturday morning.
There is a, house about sixty feet away, but no
one hears, "any peculiar noises or saw strange
teams. The place where the body was found was

UPROAR AT AN OPERA.
Police Beat Harmony Into Audience
An unrehearsed scene In which the police
played prominent parts enlivened the perform

About five hundred Armenians had gathered in
Lyric Hall to see "The Bashaw's Bride." the
proceeds of the performance going to a new free
About the time that the Bashaw, his bride and
a miscellaneous assortment of brigands became
mixed up in a fierce vocal encounter, an old

In tones which made t"he bassos voice sound like
the bleating of a pet lamb. The point of his
polysyllabic address was that since the Ar
menians already had one library they had no

the advocate? of the new library broke a chair
over the old man's head. The aged one's
friends retaliated by putting his assailant out of
business. Then the discuFsion, In which chair
legs took the place of eloquence and oratory, be
came general. In two minutes the only non
combatants were the opera company, a few
babies and one or two •women.
Some one summoned the police reserves, and
Just as the physical debate was at its height
Captain Cottrell and about a score of policemen
burst Into the hail. As they entered the
frightened singers began to sing again, their
aria punctuated by the resounding thwacks of
the nightsticks on Armenian heads.
The audience fled downstairs into the street
as though an army of bloodthirsty Turks and
Kurds were on their trail. The police got orrty
one prisoner. Dikrian Collos. of No. 243 East
76th-st. After the trouble -was over the opera
company finished its performance before an
audience composed of the janitor, three women,
seven babies and one old man.
YONKERS P. O. SCANDAL.
Donning Arrested — Inspector Says
Good Word for Him.
Developments in the postoflfW srandal nt Ton
kers are coming thick and fast. Peculations of
long standing are being uncovered. Isaac. G. Down
ing, assistant postmaster, at whose home a full
sack of mail was found Friday by Inspectors
Jacobs and Meyers, was arrested yesterday and
admitted to bail by Assistant Commissioner Lind
sey in the sum of $I.o™. It now seems that Down
ing has been under suspicion for at least three
Postmaster Osterheld made an examination or
Downing'e accounts in July, and lately the report
showed that h« was over $50f> short. Thte shortage
was made good Postmaster Osterheld at once took
I away from Downing the handling of the office
I finances. After the complaints were made of mail
being lost the. inspectors spent several nights con
cealed watching the employes through a hole in the
ceiling. Downing admitted to-day that h«" had had
the letters In his possession, paying:
On*; of the inspectors tol<i me that they had been
informed that I had removed a mail sack filled with
letters from the p~>F*ofrle^ on Thursday night. I
said that that was false, but I had taken about
three hundred unaddressed or improperly ad
dressed letters that I intended fixing up and send
ing to the Dead Letter Office in Washington. The
reason I had tak'n the letters from the postoffice. I
told them, was that I had got behind in my work,
and I did not wish to inform John X. Parsons, the
new postmaster, of the fa«t. They demanded that
I turn the lot over to them, which T did. Some of
the letters were several months old. When they
saw the class of mail the bundle contained they
to.d me that if the letters contained nothing of
value they did not see that I had committed any
crime. 1 am innocent of any wrong intr-nt, and
therefore I am not worrying about the result.
Inspector Jacobs said yesterday that he thought
Downing had acted for the best: that none of the
letters found in his possession had been opened,
and that Downir.g's story that he was trying to
get his work up to date was believed by the in
spectors. Notwithstanding th»s« statements no ex
planation is offered of the shortages that have oc

Troops Retiring from Neutral
Zone— Natives Fear Outlaws.
Godzyadanl, Sept. 16.— An order by General
Linevitch putting into effect the stipulations o*
the armistice arranged by Generals Ovanovsky
and Fukushima has been published and dis
tributed in the army. The order directs the im
mediate cessation of hostilities, the retirement
of pickets from the neutral zone and the estab
lishment of a post of communication. It forbids
all other communication between the armies.
The outposts of the main positions on both sides
will move back about two-thirds of a mile and
hereafter will display white flags.
There is now one fast train daily on the rail
way. There has been a considerable advance in
the value of both native and Russian money.
The natives welcome peace, and hope t"hat the
Peking government will send a strong: man lik»
Yuan Shi Kai. Governor of Pe-Chi-Li. to Man
churia to re-establish native authority and to
prevent pillage during the evacuation of the
Russian and Japanese armies. The people fear
the outlaws, who in large numbers are armed
with Russian and Japanese rifles.

Moscow Congress Likely to Disc7iss
Moscow. Sept. 16. — M. Golvin, president of the
Moscow zerastvos, to-day visited Governor Gen
eral Durnovo with reference to the forthcoming
zemstvo congress. The governor general said
that the congress would be permitted, but that
its programme must be confined to three points:
The share of zemstvos in town elections for the
douma, organization of the electoral campaign
and participation by zemstvos in towns in the
work of assisting the famine stricken districts.
After the visit notices were sent out summon
ing the congress to meet on September 25. The
programme of the congress was outlined as dis
cussion of the functions of the Russian public
with regard to the douma; an interpretation of

Plans for Body to Prepare Legisla
tion for Assembly.
St. Petersburg, Sept. 16— Acting on sn im
perial mandate, the Solsky commission -will
begin work next week on plans for a Ministerial
Cabinet, which is to be completed before the
meeting of the National Assembly.
There "has been considerable discussion re
garding an extension of the power* of the
present committee of Ministers in order to adapt
it to the new conditions resulting from the
formation of the assembly. The Minister of
Finance, M. Kokovsoff, had drawn up a scheme
with that end in view, but most of the Ministers
took the view that a new body would be neces
sary to prepare the legislative measures to be
submitted to the assembly.
The establishment of a ministry of commerce
following the lines of that of the United States
is being considered. Many high officials favor
such a ministry, which would take over a num
ber of departments of the overburdened Minis
try of Finance and allied departments of the
-Ministries of Railroads and Interior.
The Minister of Finance has presented to Em
peror Nicholas the memorial of the oil owners.
The Emperor ordered the convening, at the end
of September, of a conference of Oil men, indus
trial representatives of Central Russia, repre
sentatives of the Volga steamship companies and
chiefs of government departments interested to
examine the situation and report to the Minister
of Finance. The Emperor also ordered the im
mediate concentration in the oil fields of a suffi
cient number of troops to guarantee order, and
the formation of a police force, recruited from
reserves, for the protection of the works.

THE GREATEST VALUES NEW YORK HAS EVER KNOWN
REMARKABLY fine condition is the prominent characteristic of the instruments included
in this sale, and only a personal inspection can give a true appreciation of this feature.
The Pianos offered came from New York's best homes, as witnessed by the fact that
they were exchanged for Pianola Pianos, instruments which cost from $500 to $1,000. Ihe
only reason prompting the exchange was a desire on the part of the owner to replace a piano he
could not play with the Pianola Piano, an instrument which anyone can play.
As a matter of fact, some of these instruments are in such fine condition, that if they were to bt
mixed with our regular display of new goods, even the closest scrutiny would not enable you to ted which
of the instruments were "used" and which were new.
However, the display is now complete — is open for inspection, and the closest examination
is urged. , „ . . . „
Easy terms of payment will be granted every customer at this sale, if desired. A mall casn payment
will secure delivery of any instrument and moderate monthly instalments will be *ccrp:ed thereafter.
