coherently. As he was being led away
to the captain's cabin, whither he was
transferred later to his own stateroom,
h<- said gratefully:
"Thank God the suspense is over, and
I am glad!*'
Crippen's arrest accomplished, Dow
hurried t<> .Miss Leneve'a stateroom,
where- he found her. still dressed as
"John Robinson, jr.," on the verge of.
nervous breakdown. Her appearance
when confronted by the detective and
t . ■. Irl that she was under arrest was pitia
ble. All control that she had fought so
hard t<» retain throughout the voyage
left her. She cried out hysterically and
became so faint that restoratives were
administered. Shut in her room and re
stored to woman's dress, she was closely
puarded as the vessel continued its IGO
milc journey up the river for fear tha f
she would take her life or collapse ut
Only Admit Identity.
Although neither Crippen nor the
typist denied their Identity, neltherad
mitted any connection with the death
of the woman.
Inspector Dews task was only to
point out tiio fugitives to the Canadian
police and after tlvir arrest bring them
back to England. Neither he nnr the
Canadians who made the arrest tried to
pr^t incriminating admissions from the
couple. Su''h efforts are contrary to
British law, and the prisoners volun
teered no information.
With the shock of arrest over, a stew
ardess changed the boy's clothing in
which the girl had travelled as Crip
pen's son for garments suitable to her
Bex. Then she collapsed again and lay
for more than an hour in her berth, her
features contorted and her body shaken
with convulsive sobs. In a separate
cabin, guarded by a detective, Crippen
sat in silence with his chin sunk on his
chest. On the deck near at hand a
group of French and Rumanian immi
grants were singing cheerful song?.
When the Inspector went aboard the
steamer to-day he felt certain that he
would find that Captain Kendall's sus
picions were correct, and his greatest
fear was that Crippen and the typist,
v.hen they saw him come aboard and
found themselves discovered on a ship
in midstream, would commit suicide.
Sim his arrive! her.- Scotland Yard had
been warning him to beware of such an
accident, and Dew himself had been
keeping the wireless hot with messages
to the captain of the Montro?e, urging
great care in guarding the two.
Army of Correspondents.
The small army of American, Canadian
and European correspondents that had
been waiting at Father Point to see the
end of one of the most exciting man
hunts in police history, arose at dawn
to-day, but Dew nnd the Canadian de
tectives were up before them. From the.
Gulf of the st. Lawrence, 160 miles
away, a fog had rolled up the river, and
it was impossible to see more than fifty
T'.ut the wireless had Mabtv-.j jt ? way

the Montrose was only thfrt; miles

her way cautiously, and it was 7:1.">
before her black rinsed funnel was vis
ible down the river. At that thru, the
fog lifted a little, but It was still dense
enough to aid admirably the purpose of
the detectives which was to get aboard
without arousing the couple they hoped
to arrest.
An accident occurred as Dew and his
Ciiuadhiii assistants wire donning their
j.iiot uniforms to board the Eureka.

knocked Denis overboard, but both re
covered their balance, fortunately, and

Details of Arrer.t.
j » : - Stuart, who stood beside th« fugi
tive OS he was iiik<'ii Into csaftody, gave
the following account :
"I Was walking on the promenade deck
about 7..'!"> o'clock this morning when
Crippen, who was in the habit of rising
at 1, '.'A* oVIoe . each morning, joined me in
in • walk". He talked 011 various subjects,
and ijeiVniwi Indifferent to the fact, of
which he was .-«w;u-. . that the pilot was
putting; oat in a boat at that time and
might be accompanied by detectives. He
remarked, however, on the number of
men aboard, saying: 'There seems to
Whrrw T>r. Crippen and his wife lived, In
that of Belle E
he- too many pilots aboard.' Then we
resumed our conversation.
"The detectives climbed awkwardly up
the rope ladder, Dew first, followed by
McCarthy, thpn Denis, and finally Fran
cois Gauvreau. the official pilot, who was
to take the liner to Quebec.
"As Dew stepped aboard Crippen and
myself were standing on the lee side of
the vessel, v little forward of the main
companion way. .T. Shaw, the purser,
waited at the top of the ladder, and
pointed out the dentist to Dew. The In
spector walked quickly up to him, and
in a moment it was all over."
Another eyewitness described the ar
rest as follows: When Dew reached the
companionway he turned on Dr. Crippen
and said:
"Are you Dr. Crippen?"
Crippen replied, "Yes," and Dr^w said:
"You're arrested on h charge of murdi r
and the mutilation of the body " f an
unknown woman-**
Detective McCarthy stepped forward
and snapped the handcuffs on the den
tist's wrists as a safeguard, even though
Crippen made no resistance. Ho ap
peared dazed, and with a brief remark
that he was glad it was all over walked
quietly to the captain's cabin.
Inspector Dew's question. "Are you
Dr. Crippen?" was purely perfunctory,
for he had recognized his man instantly.
• Crippen's face was clean shaven and
deathly pale, and tli»r<- was no resem
blance in the huddled up figure, with its
scanty hair, thin eyebrows and no mus
tache, to the photographs of the doctor
that have been appearing lately. The
only jaunty touch in his costume was a
light-colored necktie.
Detective Denis gave the most inter
esting account of How Miss Leneve was
trapped In her cabin. "As soon as Crip
pen had been taken in charge by Me
Carthy," he said, "Inspector Dew and
myself went to Cabin 6, where we were
Informed that Miss Leneve was reading
a magazine. Dew gave instructions for
a stewardess to stand ready with a glass
of brandy to he administered in case the
girl fainted; then hi entered the cabin,
followed by myself.
"Do you recognize me?" he asked of
the girl, who rose to greet him.
" 'No,* she replied bluntly, as the color
left her face.
Girl Collapses.

unknown woman.' H<^ used the sain.
words with which he had addressed
frippep, taking them from, the wording
of th>> warrant.
"The magazine fell from the girl's
hand and she sank back on the sofa and
fainted. Then the stewardess entered at
a word from Dew and forced a little of
the liquor between her lips. Breathing
heavily, she lay back on the .sofa, with
her eyes closed. She was not hand

detract from her physical winsotneneas.
It was more than four hours after she
faced the detective i that the girl was
able to sit up. Even then her condition
was pitiful, and no one saw her except
the ship surgeon and the stewardess. At
times her moans could be heard in the
passageway outside her cabin. After
satisfying themselves that there was no
weapon in her room the officers did not
return until she was instructed to pre

extraordinary interest to people of two con
The circumstances of the finding oC the
body supposed to be that of Belle E3mor<
are of recent occurrence the salient feat
ores being as follows: Dr. Crippen and his
wife, known by the stage name of Belle
Elmore, had for tlie last two years occu
pled a cosey house at No. 39 Hilldro!»
Crescent, North London. He was an
American dentist, born at Coldwater, Mich.,
educated in Indiana, pursuing medical
studios later in Michigan, California, Ohio
and New York City. He had managed a
patent medicine business In Philadelphia
and In Columbus, Ohio, and had appeared
at many other points— Detroit, Sun Diego,
Salt Lake City, St. Louis and Brooklyn.
Belle Elmore was a well known vaudeville
actress, about thirty-five years old, for
merly of Brooklyn. She was an attractive
woman and an officer of the Music Hall
Artists' Guild, of London. With the Crip
pen pair at Ililltlrop Crescent lived Miss

the battered body of a human being. It \
had been placed in quicklime and wn-» j

Many false clews were followed to a. fruit

1 >r. Crlppgn and his typist appeared to
have vanished completely. Police descrip

One circumstance of the tIU-i t proved to
be i;-.r.st important, Baaoaly, Dr. Crippen
purchased a suit of boy's clothinsr. evident
ly for the purpose of disguising hi com
panion as a boy in th"jr flight.
The first real clew came on the sailing
of the Canadian Pacific steamer Montrose
from Antwerp on July 29. Two persons of

the. steamer two hours before It sailed.
They -aye the names of the Hew John Rob
