The Mystery of III OI inprnrnnce From

Batonxe, Mac 22. Tho mystery surround
ing the disappearance of J. H. Dojln of 120
West Fifth street, bore, was partly cleared up
to-day by tho llndlngof bis body in Xownrk
Bay. near Elizabeth. It had been In tho water
n very long timo. but n summons found in his
pocket proves the Identity.
Mr. Doylo disappeared on Thursday. Feb.
2.". After eating his dinner on that day ho put
u considerable sum of money Into his pocket
nnd stnrted for Now York. Slnco that tlmo
nonoofhls family has seen him. A car driver
said that Jlr. Doylo hoarded his car at tho
Eighth street depot on the day of
his dlsappearanco and rodo down Ave

through Fifth street us far as tho hor-o ears
ran boforo turning into Avcnuo A on tlmir
way to thn titatett Island ferry, lloro Mr.
Doylo nligbtol. nnd the last thn driver hiuv of
him ho was walking along Fifth streot In tho
direction of his home.
Mr. Doyle's house Is nlniost nt tbo end of
Fifth street, thn street terminating on tho
slioio of Xnwnrk Bay. It was then thought
that Mr. Doylo hud been taken sick, nnd hud
unwittingly ptissetl his homo and fallen into
tho water. Lntor the tlieorv of murder, to
which thn family had adhered from tho llrst.
was revived by thn fact that on tho
night of Ids return two men had board
ed n horse ear at the point where Jlr. Doylo
left the one on which bo i"ue and had gono lo
thoMntitn Island I'crrj. nnd thcro. upon find

and they disappeared along thoshore. Thn
Stitten Island pollno mado every effort to trace
theso men. but fuilod.
Mr. Doylo was n conspicuous flguro In city

Fnder normal conditions vestordny would
havo boon a fairly dry day in Now York, oxcept
In thn tenement districts, which wero novor
known topormlt a Sundny drought. Thorn was
some fall of moisture from tho clouds, but ont of
(ho kind that necossltntos very much drinking
to keep a iust bnlanco. It was not so cold as
to suggest tho nood of Internal warmth, antl
thotewns no heat to make tho soul yearn for
thirst destroyers. Novortholess yostorday was
a wet Sundny such n Sunday aB would havo
grloved tho soul of Dr. Parkhurst had ho beon
horo. Instead of In tho quiet New England vil
lage vvnero Amhorst Colleco Is sltuntod.
It would nrpenr thnt Dr. Pnrkhurst has
nrousod so much curiosity on tho subjectof
tho possibility of getting drinks on Sundny
that no man fcolsthat ho has dona his duty
unless ho goos In person nnd leans against
bars, and proves by the rersonal engulfing of
several drinks thut theso things exist. A man
who was deaf, dumb, and blind could not havo
failed to find out thnt drinks were to bo hnd.
Tho blinds wore all down, nnd ono had only to
stop In front of a placotohenrthounmlstnk

There weio arrests, of course.

A bartender in a white apron stood reading a

Tho closing of tho saloons in Hobokon last

nnd consequently tlio saloons in 'eehawl:en

closed, but business wits curried on In Hobo
