Kector and Sexton's Wife Found Slain Children Stumble Upon Bullet-Riddled Bodies | Lying Side by Side in Lonely Jersey Field Love Notes Reveal Bond of Affection Clergyman's Rich ""Wife and Church Employee Missed Mates Thursday from a 8(0f Corespondent VLW BRUNSWICK, N. J-, Sept. lfi. .-The Rev. Edward W. Hall, rector of hhe Protestant Episcopal Church of 'St. John the Evangelist, and Mrs. -James Mill?, wife of the sexton, who were fotir.d dead from bullet wound?? today, lay side by side in a field on ?he outskirts of th<? city, which long ht- been a trysting place for lovers, ?nd more recently has been the resort cf bootleggers and the scene af at least one shooting affray between members of that fraternity. Letters were found in the clergy? man's pockets which showed that Mrs. Mills was accustomed to writ? to him in en affectionate and intimate vein. George Totten, county detective, say? that any suggestion that the couple died as the result of a suicida agree? ment is absurd, no weapon having been found. Rector for Ten Years Mr- Hall had been rector of the c'nurc'i for ten years and was held in high esteem. He was about forty-eight years old, was married and had no children. His wife is wealthy by inher? itance and tho Halls were able to live in more comfortable circumstances than is the lot of many clergymen, even thopo who have prosperous churches. Th?-' Mills family consisted of James Milla, sexton of the church; his wife, who was about thirty-six years old, and their children, Charlotte, sixteen years old, anil Dan, ten. They lived in a humblo cottage on Carman Street. The friendship between the two families, one wealthy and the other poor, v.ad been a matter of remark in this city for some time and was re? garded gpnerally as an Instance of the llmplicity and honest democracy that ruled the rlerfrman's life. Wednesday the Ha'ls took the Mills family in their automobile to Lake Hopatcong, where th^? ?ickjjcked at a cottage the church mg'BWiWIhoro": Thursday evening, about 7:30, a boy from the corner drug store came to the Mills home and said there was a tele? phone call for Mrs. Mills. She went ?ut and on her return put on her blue Velvet hat and flung a scarf ov*r- her ihoulders. Husband Questioned Her At these preparations for departure ker husband looked up from his even? ing paper. "Where are you going?" he asked. "Follow me, and you'll $nd out," said Mr?. Mills with a Mona Lisa smile which her husband quite failed to iden? tify. There were many things about bis wife that James Mills, a pale, nervous little man whose attention was con? centrated painfully on tho practical th i n c: s of life, never did understand. "All right, dear," said he with the tmile he employed on such occasions and tried vainly still to endow with a aemblar.ee of understanding. He returned to his paper and his wife Vent clicking briskly down the street in her high heels. That was the last he ?aw of her. At 10 o'efock she had not returned and Mills went to bed. He ?woke about 2 o'clock in the morninfr, be told Detective Totten to-day, and, finding that h;s wife still was absent, went to the church to look for her. She was leader of the choir and he thought she might have gone to the church to practice. She had whims that were inexplicable to Mills and he would not have been surprised to find her seated at the organ in the light of the waning moon. Found Church Empty The church was empty, however, and echoed eerily to his half-whispered ??alls for his wife. Mills returned to his home, he said, and tossed restless? ly on his bed until daylight. Then he went to the church again, and while he was about his usual tasks Mrs. Hall arrived. She wanted to know if her husband was there. Mills told her he ivas not. Mrs. Hall said she had not spr?n him since the preceding eve? ning. Mills said that was funny; his wife hadn't been home since last evening, fCpnrinuf.d on prig? five) Weeks Seeks Division of War Trophies at Newark Wants Congrega to Pass Bil? to Distribute German Cannon Throughout Country r-'-i The frlbune'* Washington Bureau ; WASHINGTON.

Central Shop Parley Broken Off Line and Men Disagree at Conference Called to End Strike ; Announce It Will Not Be Resumed Road's Statement Blames Unionists Asserts They Tried to Inject Questions Not Mentioned in Agreement The New York Central Railroad of? ficials and the representatives of the striking shopmen failed to come to any agreement yesterday. At tho close of an all-day conferenco it was announced that no settlement had been reached, that negotiations for all the lines of the New York Central system had been broken off and that no further con? ferences would be held. Shortly after the breaking up of the conference an official statement was issued by the railroad, which said: "The New York Central lines were ready and willing to abide by and ful? fill the letter and spirit of the memo? randum of agreement reached at Balti? more. The representatives of the shop crafts, however, attempted to interject questions not mentioned in the text and clearly outside of the agreement, insisting " that these matters be in? cluded. To this the railroad manage? ment conld not agree." In Session Five Hours The conferees were in session for nearly five hours. They met at 10:30 in the morning, and, with the excep-. lion of a luncheon adjournment, did not brrak up until 5:45 in the afternoon. Tlie failure to agree, after the opti? mistic predictions as to the outcome mi.de as a result of the agreements ar? rived at with the Big Four brother? hoods announced yesterday, caused con? siderable disappointment in both rail? road and union circles. The chairmen of the six federated shopcrafts unions represented their organizations at the conference with the railroad officials. The conference, as were those with the Big Four broth? erhoods, was called under the Individ? ual agreement plan adopted by the policy committee at the meeting itj Chicago-. It was believed before the meeting began that it would result in a strike settlement, ns had the meetings undeT this plan with the other unions, a fueling shared in by President A. H. S/nith, of the railroad System; as indi? cated by his statements on Friday. When the conferenco adjourned for luncheon at 11:55, however, there were no signs of accord on the questions, and it was said that there would be no announcement until the end of the day. At 2:30 o'clock the union men and officials were again in conference, ad? journing at 5:45 with the announce? ment of the failure to agree. It was learned yesterday that the agreement between the trainmen and conductors and the New York Central had been signed and the copies de? livered to the parties concerned. Won't Ignore Rail Board _ There was some comment in railroad circles yesterday, on the stories in the morning papers to the effect that the various lines would "ignore" the Rail? road Labor Board and deal direct with their employees in future, following the lead of the New York Central and the Pennsylvania. The word "ignore" was too blunt, if not too strong, to fit the situation, railroad officials said. Signs of unrest in ordinarily calm labor circles, such as the railway clerks, had been an incentive to seeking the speediest possible settlement they could obtain with the employees, even though they had to pay a slight pre? mium therefor, it was pointed out. The question of eliminating time and-a-half for overtime has been pend? ing since the spring of 1921, it was ex? plained, without any action by tho board. Another matter awaiting de? cision is that of the contracts between the New York Central and the Western Union Telegraph Company as to whether or not jointcinpioyecs come under the transportation act. The board has already given hear? ings on reconsideration of the claims of the maintenance of way men. It will rehear the signalmen September 26, and the dispatchers, September 28. F.ehearings have also been granted for revision .of the rules for engineers and firemen. Nevertheless, the railroads feel that the Labor Board has not given prompt consideration to pending requests and have become impatient at- the delay. There is constant labor agitation and lailroad officials are forced to give at? tention to these matters when they would prefer to be devoting their time to railroad business. A business boom is in prospect, it was also stated, and the railroads are anxious to be ready to meet it. -,?,__-, Rescue Crew Will Reach Trapped/ Miners To-day JACKSON, Calif., Sept. 16 (By The Associated Press).?The rescuers will break through to-morrow into the Ar tronauut mine, where men have been imprisoned since August 27, according to a unanimous statement made here to-day by the government, state and mine officials. ??.on It is now predicted that about 10:30 a. m.

Reichsbaiik Closed by Mark Famine Printing Presses, Work? ing 24 Hours a Day, Un? able to Supply Money; Institutions Follow Suit Banker in London For Reparation Aid Finance Minister There Also to Seek 50 Million Gold Marks for Belgium By Joseph Shaplen By Wireless to The Tribune Copyright, 1322, New York Tribune Ino. BERLIN, Sept. 16.?For the first time in its history the Reiehsbank, former? ly the citadel of Germany's economic and financial might, closed its doors for tho day this morning on account of lack of money on hand. Tho short ago assumed a particularly acute form to-day, nearly all tho banks-, putting uj signs of "No Payments Made." Thi closing was only for one day. It was with tho greatest difficultj that foreigners were able to obtair funds for their current expenses' while even in the cafes and restaurants payments were made by checks. Manj Americans who. had planned to depor were detained by inability to get thci: checks or letters of credit cashed. Daily Output Two and Half Billion To-day's shortage was aggravated b; the Reichsbank's shipment of two bil lion marks to Upyer Silesia where i particularly dangerous situation ha arisen duo to discontent of the work era over employers' inability to mee their pay rolls. Despite the feveris activity of tho Reichsbank printin presses, which are operating on thre shifts of twenty-four hours daily, th money famine has not been ameliorate thus far. The Reichsbank's daily oui put of new paper is now 2,500,000,00 marks, yet despite this incessar stream swelling the ocean of Germa paper the money situation shows n improvement and threatens to assun: a more dangerous aspect. On the reparations question all hor is now centered on the visit of Ri dolph Havenstein, president of tt Reichsbank, to London, where he e: peets" to obtain assistance in Britis financial circles in obtaining the gua antees demanded by Belgium. It understood that Havenstein is tryir to obtain the Bank of England's co: sent to place at the disposition of tl Reichsbank a deposit of about 50,00( 000 gold marks placed there by tl Reichsbank some time ago. The Ge man financier is now supposed to 1 seeking the transfer of this to the Be gian nntional bank to help cover tl 100,000,000 gold mark guaranty d manded by Belgium. Mark Reflects Hopeful Feeling Havenstein iu expected to retu from England on Monday, and up> his report will depend Germany's fin reply to the Belgian note. Official a: financial circles here are rather o timistic, feeling: that some sort of understanding with .Belgium is pro able. This is reflected in the standi of the mark, which is holding its o> at 1,400 to tho dollar. LONDON, Sept. 16 (By The Assoi ated Press).?Official character w given to the visit of Havenstein by t arrival to-day of Dr. Fischer, the G? man Secretary of State for Finam Tho latter said he was awaiting the i suit of Havenstein's conferences. The president of the Reichsbank v ited the Treasury office to-day short after the arrival of Sir John Brt bury, the British member of the Rcf ration Commission, from Paris. Have stein later saw officials of the Bank England and other bankers, but so i no conclusion has been reached. "He Killed My Mother,' Says Slayer of Broth? ?-?? ?

The fire which has been raging for three days with unabated fury has swept the city and is ex? tending to the suburbs. Only black? ening masonry and a 'small vestige of the Turkish quarter remain. Death and indescribable misery permeate the 200,000 crazed popula? tion. Six lone American Relief workers are attempting the super? human task of ministering to the dead and dying. No other country has as yet come forward to relieve the suffering. All the patients crowded in hospi? tals, numbering not fewer than a thousand, have been burned to death. Relief Supplies Destroyed All relief supplies sent from Con? stantinople by the American Relief organizations were destroyed by the fire. Major Claflin Davis, of the American Red Cross, and H. C. Jaquith, of the Near East Relief, are bending all their efforts to evac? uate the Christians as the only means of saving them, but are han? dicapped by lack of vessels.

Mrs. Joseph R. Dilwcrth, who had just learned that the burglar who entered her house early Thursday morning had got away with $30,000 worth of gems instead of $10,000, as she had at first supposed, called the meeting and pre? sided. Mrs. fiamuel Rea, from whose home nearly ? 100,000 worth of precious stones were quietly removed before dawn to-day, sat in the front row on the mourner's bench. Only slightly less prominent were the places occupied by Mrs. Morrison Carnegie and Mrs. i C. C. Be?es, whose losses occurred j early in the week and had almost \ passed into ancient history a? the ? chronicle of Southampton robberios ! goes. The first business was the reading of a letter from O. C. Lane, the local 1 Chief of Police, who stated that despite the fact that jewels valued at over $200,000 had been stolen in the 1st week he could find no trac? of a crime wave in the town. He suggested that the quick succession of robberies was a coincidence, and pointed out that sim? ilar depredations have been going on fitfully all summer. He declared he and his staff were prepared to fall in with any plan the ladies might think advisable. Just what plan was agreed upon was kept a secret, as the volunteer burglar detectives had no intention of spoil? ing their scheme by giving it away. It is known, however, that insurance com? pany detectives summoned from New York have assured them thrt similarity of the methods used in each robbery indicate that all have been the work of one organized band. That no sign.' forcible entry have yet been discovered by any of the victims has aroused the suspicion that ihe robbers are work i in"" hand in glove with faithful serv? ants. At any rate, the ladies came out of the meeting room with a set expres? sion and declared there would be no more burglari??.

Artists' League Finds Studios Cloak for Vice More Than 70 Per Cent Are Used for Questionable Purposes, Worse Than in Paris, Says Julian Bowes Owners' Cupidity Blamed Bona Fide Renters Refused Leases, as the Vicious Ele? ment Will Pay Better An investigation into studio condi? tions, conducted by the League of New York Artists, has brought forth facts concerning their misuse which, accord? ing to Julian Bowes, secretary, imme? diately will be laid bcfgfre the District Atorney. More than 70 per cent of the studios in Manhattan, Mr. Bowes said the in vestigation showed, are being occupied by persons of questionable character. They are either dillentante or pseudo artista who are glad to pay high rent for the cloak the studio provides for licentious and free living, he said. This condition, which is said to sur? pass here to-day those prevailing in the Latin quarter of Paris, is the di? rect result of profiteering on the part of landlords nad real estate men, ac? cording to the league's findings. Real Artists Not Wanted "Real estate agents arc booming the studio idea," said Mr. Bowes," and stressing the so-called "free life" of artists to such an extent that bonafide artists are denied renewals of leases and are unable to obtain studio quar? ters. "During the investigation made by the rent committee members were fre? quently informed by agents offering studios for rent that "no questions were asked." The record of conditions was taken in various leading artist sections, in? cluding Columbus Circle, Greenwich Village and Fourteenth Street. Here in studios built primarily for., artists, not new and up-to-date apartment buildings, but places old with the tra? dition of famous men who have gone' before, the committee found that a majority of the occupants couldn't possibly be artists enough to mix a batch of paints. In the Village, particularly,- condi? tions were found even worse from the artists' standpoint. The studios there are fast giving way to bankers and brokers and persons of every profes? sion except artist. Many of these, it was found, are being turned into a one-day-a-week retreat, where the owner finds diversion in off hours for for himself and a select company of friends. Here the revels run strong and passersby throw up their hands in horror of the "wicked artists." Profession Driven to Street Studio use by non-members of the profession has been a growing hard? ship on the artist the last few years, whereas at this time, according to Mr. Bowes, many of the best men in the profession have been driven to the street. Their only recourse is to pay the landlord exaggerated increase in rent or go to a room where insufficient light spells partial failure for his work. "The American artist as a class is an upstanding figure in the commu? nity," declared Mr. Bowes, "and is absolutely guiltless of the 'free life' charge of the real estate man. The fact that a woman model can be al? lowed to pass to and from the studio of an artiat v::.?.i?put easting any great aspersion on Eta *?-? Her reputation has been seized upon greedily by the com? mercially-minded real estate man fo flaunt in the face of loose-living people. The bait has worked beautifully, and the resulting condition is one which the District Attorney will find worthy of an immediate investigation." ??' 19 of 24 Gas Stations Selling Short Measure Ohio Police Use Car With a False Tank to Trap Un* v scrupulous Dealers COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 16.?A raid by the city sealer of weights and measures on twenty-four gasoline fill? ing stations here showed nineteen of them selling at short measure, it was announced to-day with the filing of charges against seven station opera? tors.

Dempsey Gets Wallop on Jaw From Democrat New Yorker and Oliver, of Alabama, Fight on Floor of House After Bitter Verbal Clash 200 in 'Ringside' Seats East River Project Caused ; It All, but Peace Is Made After Session From The Tribune's Washington Bureau WASHINGTON, Sept. 16?Represent? ativo Stephen Wallace Dempsey, Re? publican, of Lockport, N. Y., got a stiff left to the jaw from a fellow member, Representative William B. Oliver, Dem? ocrat, of Alabama, in exchange for a few objectionable words, in an en? counter this afternoon that threw tho House into an uproar during consid? eration of the Rivers and Harbors con? ference report. The two members had engaged in a series of bitter verbal clashes pver amendments to the bill providing for the deepening of the East River. Mr. Sempsey, as chairman of the House Rivers and Harbors Committee, asked ; the House to disagreo to a Senate amendment and insist upon a provision for deepening the East River channel to forty feet for the entire distance up to Throg's Neck. Thi3 would have called for an appropriation of $71, 500,000. Representative Oliver de? manded that the House agree to tho Senate amendment which would deepen tho channel to forty feet to the Navy Yard and to only thirty-five feet from the Navy Yard to Throg's Neck, at a cost of $38,000,000. Dempsey Controlled Tima Representative Dempsey brought on the risctics through anger at Mr. Oli? ver's demand for time in which to argue his side. As the committee chairman Mr. Dempsey controlled the time. At Representative Oliver's reuest he walked over to that member's seat on the Democratic side. " ... I won't give you more than five minutes," Representative Oliver alleges Mr. Dempsey said. The palm of Oliver's left hand landed squarely on Dempsey's cheek, with, about 200 members in "ringside" seat3. A number of them and Sergeant-at Arms Joseph Rogers and Bert Ken? nedy, tlje doorkeeper of the House, rushed between the two men. Repre? sentative William B. Bowling, of Ala? bama, hurdled over a row of seats in gttting to his colleague. Democratic Floor Leader Finis J. Garrett held Representative Oliver and Mr. Dempsey walked back to the Re? publican side, his cheek burning with a large red spot. In repeating, later, Mr. Dempsey's words which caused the blow, Mr. Oliver said: "I resented that as any gentleman owuld, and I slaped his face with the open palm of my left hand." He also said that Representative Dempsey in? sinuated that he should not be inter? ested in the New York project. When order had been restored Mr. Oliver went to the chair and apologized : tb Speaker Gillette for violating the rule3 of the House, but explained that he felt he was justified. Offered to Yield Five Minutes Representative Dempsey subsequent? ly announced: "I wil yield five minutes to the gen? tleman on the other side." "I hope the gentleman will yield me ten minutes," said Mr. Oliver. "In view of what has transpired and in view of the fact that I went over there simply to try to agree with the gentleman as to time"-said Mr. Dempsey, "I do not think this is to be the proper time and place for that, but if it is desired I will make a public statement about it," returned Mr. Oliver. "I only spoke to the gentleman in the most kindly spirit," explained Mr. Dempsey. "I appreciate the gentleman's state? ment now," observed Mr. Oliver, "and had he approached me in that same spirit and manner nothing: would have occurred that would have caused the slightest misunderstanding."
