crediting the report of hi? connection
with a Tenderloin crime till the New

made a complete confession.
An explanation at how a mar, of
Winslow's reputation could be invo'.v?d

memorandum book in his pocket. It
contained the names of about twenty
young women of the Frances Bradley
type and their telephone numbers.

to the night life which his home and
business associates did not tven sus?

Mother Told of Crime
The defectives sent to interview the
young man's parents, Theophilus Wins?
low, a prosperous jobber, of 1170 Broad?
way, and Mis. Winslow, at the family
horn? in Flizaheth, hesitated to break
the new* to them, merely saying that
their son had become involved in a
brawl with a woman. Impressed by her
supreme confidence in her son, they
left without telling her the truth. The
new? was broken to her by a later
"I have g'ven two cons to my coun?
try," the mother said. "One of my
hoys is iio'v in France and another will

give K?n?!on."
When the son was brought into the
Coroner's office by detectives and ac?
companied by his father, bronzed by
out-of-door exercise, apparently in the
best of physical condition and dressed
with scrupulous neatness, he was the
calmest person in the room. When
Coroner Healy committed him to the ,
Tombs without bail he took it as a mat?
ter of course. ? ?

Canadian Food
Director Fails to
Halt Profiteers
Hanna, Instead of Acting
Against Gamblers, Talks
of Conservation
frrei l a Special Corrrapenaertl at The Tribun?]
Toronto, July 27.?The start made by ;
W. J. Hanna in his career as Canadian |
Food Controller has not been entirely
auspicious. The appointment was hailed
with enthusiasm as indicating a deter?
mination on the part of the govern?
ment to get after the food profiteers
and do something in the way of bring?
ing soaring prices down.
Mr. Hanna, however, announces that!
the primary purpose he has to serve is ,
to conserve food, which he purposes to \
do by campaigns against waste, by in- ;
augurating meatless days and by any
other restrictions which the public will ;
impose upon itself voluntarily, there
being no hint as yet of compulsion
Other than that already enforced by
high prices.
Mr. Hanna's announcement has had
something of the effect of a wet blan?
ket on the enthusiasm of housewives.
The statement is freely made that
whatever else Mr. Hanna may accom?
plish, he will have failed if he does
not curb the profiteers. A recent re?
port on cold storage conditions has |
occasioned a bitter feeling against Sir i
Joseph Flavelle, chairman of the Im?
perial Munitions Board and head of the
largest packing establishment in Can?
The war has brought Sir Joseph im
menaS food contracts, and while his
profits may be entirely defensible the '
public does not forget how deeply it '
"?pressed by recent speeches from
Sir Joseph on the subject of war :
profits in general. So deeply was it
impress**] that for a time Sir Joseph
was discussed as the possible Joshua :
who. as Frime Minister of Canada,
might lead the people into the promised
Mr. Hanna ran into another snag
when he called his first convention of
women to impress upon them the ne
cesnity of food economy. As soon as
the meeting was opened for general
discussion the first thing the delegates
wanted to know was w-hy Canadian
women should be asked to make any
further sacrifices in the matter of food
until Canada and Britain stopped tho
leak in the bread basket involved in
the continuance of the liquor traffic.
The question was shelved when a men
ua called to the chair and ruled it
out of order, but it caused some sensa?
tion, and will without doubt be heard
again. '

By the time he had pried her mouth
i pen with his nightstick two bottles of

Nevertheless she was taken to tne

IBy Mm to Tho Trtbon?)
Chicago, July 28. A trace of the
kind of Americanism almost every one
in the Fnited State, feel? appeared in
the Chicago City Hall, yesterday, near
Mayor Thompson's office.
George Bassett, secretary" to John P.
' Garner, commissioner of Public Ser

He put a large American flag in the
i window of his office. Ba?sett's office
is the only one of the Thompson's ad?

American flag is shown. They all have
a portrait of "Bill the Big," some even

Burlington, N. J., July 28. When
an east-bound Pennsylvanit freight
crashed into a gasolene tank truck
stalled on the tracks at Wood Lane :
Crossing, Edgewater Park, to-day. the
accident was only a preliminary to fur?
ther and more serious trouble.
In the hour that followed the crash
firemen fought a river of liquid flame,
which ran along the railway and ig- ;
nited several box cars; braved two
heavy explosions and Buffered beneath
a literal flaming ?howtr.
Before the fire wa? conquered one
man had been killed, two were injured
?o ?eriomly that they will die. and

of blazing gasolene.

truck, loaded with three large gaso?
lene tanks, across the rail? when the
engine ?tailed. Before he could get
the machine started again the freight
locomotive had sma?hea into the truck,
fracturing one of th? three tanks The
volatile liquid gushed forth. In an
instant it had caught flame from the
firebox of the engine. The fire
flashed back to the truck, which was
ablaze in a second, and was also car?
ried down the line of freight earn on
a rivulet of gasolene.
A crowd of several hundred persons
gathered, and, ignoring warnings to
K?ep back, pressed close to the burning
truck. Then the two remaining tanks
of gasolene exploded with the roar of
cannon. Bits of steel hurtled through
the air, and a great sheet of flame was
flung ?kyward like a geyser, to fall in
drops upon the crowd.
Freight Station Catchet? Fire
The Edgewater Park freight station
and the home of Mrs Margaret Ward
were both ignited by the liery shower.

Men Rush To Be Saved
By Woman Lifeguard
Epidemic of Near Drowning at
Asbury P?-?rk Follows Her
. Asbury Park, N. J., July 28.- Miss
' Ruth MacN'eeley made her first official
appearance on the South End bathing
ground? here to-day, whereupon all th?>
men in sight began to drown with wo
ful cries.
Mi?? MacNeela*/, be if understood, is
the first wom?n lifeguard to be em?
ployed on the Jersey coast. She is
also pretty, and her bathing costume
is as fetching as it could be under the
bathing biue laws enforced here.
She had not been at her job more
than live minutes when the undertow
gripped a willing victim?, who was
mi', ed by Miss MacN'eeley. In the nour
; that ensued the lifeguard rescued a
half-dozen men. After they had been
saved they thowed a desire to express
their gratitude at great length.
Finally Otis Lee, manager of the
bathing grounds, app>oached his ex?
hausted employe, who had just rescued
, her sixth man.
'"Hereafter,'' he said, "just aav? the
women and children. Let the other
guard? look after the men."
"Help! Help!" another cry resounded
, over the billows.
"Drown," said Miss MacN'eeley sweet
lv to the victim of th?, undertow, and
? then sat down to rest.

England's Long Evenings
An interesting record of both "sum?

the "lighting notices" now appearing

about the longest day wa? specially
striking. It ran: "Lamp time for

Cocchi's New Story
Of Cruger Murder
Doubted by Talley
Prosecutor Thinks Slayer's Re?
lations With Police Were Mote
Than Friendly
Alfred I. Talley. Assistant District
Attorney, remained unimpressed yes
! terday after reading the latest confes
' sion of Alfred Cocchi, who killed Ruth
Cruger. The Italian has changed his
story of the killing so often and th?
manifest improbabilities in his latest
effort are so numerous, the prosecutor
declares, that he is inclined to doubt
the entire tale. Especially Mr. Talley
doubts that Cocchi, as he said, flu.-g
Ruth Cruger, still alive, through the
register aperturo in his shop floor.
"The lining of that register was
stained with what analysis shows was
human blood," he said. "Ruth Cruger
was dead when Cocchi forced her body
through that aperture. Cocchi is not
tcllmg the truth and for that reasor
we cannot accept his statements that
he had no other relations with police?
men other than mere friendly acquaint?
ance." ?aid Mr. Talley.
District Attorney Swann has decided
to send Francis X. Mancuso, one of his
assistant?, to Italy to conduct the ex?
amination of Cocchi, and, if necessary,
remain there and cooperate with the
Italian prosecution if Italy refuses to
extradite the prisoner. The District
Attorney says this is the only way in
which the real truth can be reached
through questions put to Cocchi based
on known facts and circumstances here.

but it is strongly intimated that by

I of detectives and police officials will
probably be returned.
Mr. Scull ?rill be asked to explain to
the grand jurors his inactivity in the
case in view of the evident improba?
bility of his theorv that Huth Cruger

with him in the interest of the Crugor
family, did not summon the detectives
on the case before him instead of wait
ing until after the body of Miss Cruger
had been found.
