flerard I.oulsl, the other National

able to tell ('apt. Sam Price, In charRe
of the Hronx detectives, somethlne of
the details of the affray yesterday. al
thotiKh he was not yet In condition to
tell the whole story. I.oulsl said that
the woman, I.ottle. believed to have been
th- w-lfp ,,f VorcI. fired the tlrst shot.
As t 'apt. J'rlce (rot the story of the
raid and the shooting. Hutler. the waiter
and bartender, knocked at the door, and
when VorcI opened 11 the detectives
pushed Into the room with MomNcheln,

Joseph von I'laszynsky. was dressed In
troiieis. shoes and undersh.rt The
woman was dressed except fur her waist
and skirl, which lav on clmlr near bv.
Detective Kay announced who he was
and told the man and woman to dress.
Kay passed his hand over I'laszynsky to
m.iku sure he had nn pistol.
The detectives had the supect In a
way that would haie made It dlllleult
fur him to fret a weapon without their
belli forewarned. lie slatted to dress
at tlie'r orders and then a lmt came
from behind him.
Tlu woman, to whnm not so much at
tention had been paid as to the man.
had got an autonutic pistol and fired
from behind her companion. The bullet
hit I'ay and he crumpled up on the Hour
At the ame Instant the woman passed
the Klin to Vocel. and Allen, known to I
b.s old time companions on the pol'.n1
jfui'ce for li.s courace. Jumped forward
to grab him. Vogel turned his side to
the Invading party and to the attacking
Allen and, js If he hud Ie3rr.ed the u.-e
of firearms from military training
abroad, began tiring past his shoulder,
thus making of himself the narrowest
target possible.
The first bullet tired by Vogel struck
Allen and so did the second. The de
tective fell across the bed with a bullet
In the head and a bullet In the abdomen.
Kay, fiiun the ttoor. and I.oul'i. stand
ing, had their revolvers out by this
time. Hut the automatic pistol, with
Its eleien cartridges, was still swalng
from side to side nt the left shoulder
of the hunted man. and before a bullet
finally slopped the Austrian be bad
emptied his pistol and every one of the
five men who had Invaded the room
had one or more bullets In his Isidy
Vogel und the woman were both
killed bv the Invaibrs; the Austrian's
automatic pistol used steel bullet, so
this was easily determined. The two
bodies were found on the Moor not far
apart, nnd the woman's behind her hus
band's and ntarer the window.
The Investigators have not yet de
cided who tired the shots which killed
these two. The six chambers of l.oulsl'i
revolver were emptied and the police
said that It mut have been I.oulsl who
brought down both man and woman.
Witnesses who arrived at the hotel
oon after the shooting, however, say
that they saw policemen break Kay's
aim and take out four empty shells.
There was one loaded carltldge left
in Kay's gun when he was carried out
of the hotel. The revolver fell from
Ills pocket while he was being curt led
out and this cartridge was discharged,
the bullet passing uncomfortably close
to several policemen ami others, and
Imbedding Itself In the celling of the
Afler I'las.ynsky and his Rife had
been killed Kav, I.oulsl, Hutler and
Momlscheln managed to .stumble and
crawl downstairs lo the ban 00m and
some one telephoned to I'ollce Heail
quarters. ('apt. I '.diva til S. Walling and
every policeman obtainable nt the Mor
iianla station ran to the hotel, a few
blocks away.
They found the bodies of I'laszynsky
and his wife on the flour of thn room
and found Allen lying aero., the bed,
where lie bad fallen.
The othci.H were In the barroom down
stalls. Allen, the police found, had had
no revolver, although he had taken the
Initiative after the attack on Kay by
Ihe woman, i'laszynsky and his wife
had three other weapons In the toom,
which were not used. One of these,
a revolver, was In the woman's: plush
handbag lying on a table; a second,
an automatic pistol, like the one with
which the murders were committed, be.
tween the springs and mattress; the
third, n revolver. In one ot the minks.
All weie fullv lnaU.d.
1 Coroner's Physician John P.legelman
performed an autopsy on the bodies of
' I'laszynsky and his wife yesterday
I morning. He found that the man hud
I been shot In the chest nnd that the bul
let had traversed tho lungs and heart.
There were also throe superficial wounds
on the man's body, one across the back
and two across the front.
The bullet which killed tho woman
had entered her back, tho Coroner's
physician said, and had traversed her
abdomen and chest. The bodies of the
man and woman were still at tho Kurd
ham morguo last night. Allen's body
was left nt the Lebanon Hospital.
Th police took the name of I'laszyn
sky from citizenship declaration, or first
papers, found among Vogel's effects,
'fills showed that Joseph von I'laszyn
sky had come tn America on March 15,
Ipljj, und had tiled his first papers- on
December 8, 1904, He had been a sub
ject of Austria. The police, believe that
He was a I'.ole by birth.
A lettef found on tho floor of the room
after the bodies had been removed was
addressed "Mr. Kimball" and read as

1.35 for shirts like these is not so
much an argument as a club!
l Our problem in a sale of this kind is to have you sec
the merchandise. We arc not worrying about selling
the shirts. They will sell themselves. What'thcy arc
immediately in need of is an opportunity to tell their
story. They want to break through your indifference
to a good thing. They want a fivc-minutc hcart-'to-hcart
confabulation with you, in order that they may
put their proposition squarely before you.
Q It is a quality story, punctuated with distinctivcncss
variety, and a liberal measure of economy. It is a sale
which embraces the newest and most exclusive shirtings

(rand Jury and editorial comments on

The answer asserts that the re-onsi-
bilily for the police scandal rested with
the Commissioner not only by reason of
the laws of the Stale defining his powers,
but nNo bis-ause he eu'.de himseir re
sponsible in the adoption of new method
for administering the duties of his office.
und assumed responsibility in public
utterances It is alleged thai shortly
after he assumed otlice in May, IBM,
Commissioner Waldo made radical
changes in the methods that had been
lollowed by his predecessors with respect
to the detection and suppression of dis
orderly resorts, and particularly of gamb
ling houses, by taking such work away
from the precinct captains and their nu-ii
nnd giving it to a newly created central
oftieo squad composed of detevtiven, who
worked independently of one another, and
reported directly to the Commissioner
The answer alleges that afler Mich

The answer citos Ihe presentment of!
the CiiMiul Jury last February, which
concluded "that Ihe present system of
obtaining evidence in gambling; ca'os
is totally inefficient." and cites aUo a
resolution to this effect addressed to Ihe,
Mayor. The answer goes into the cir
ciunstaiKvs of Itosniitlial's murder and
says that tho District Attorney pursued
u vigorous Investigation and soon had
proof that the killing was brought alsiut
I iy Lieut, Hecker and that tho plaintiff,
nk CotnwUsioner of Koliee, was in kssos
sion of thn irvost adequate and mwerful
facilities "to render great publio service
by aiding the District Attorney in Ihe
arduous undertaking of (Tn-li'ig out nnd
bringing to punishment the perpetrators)
of said crime, It was also tho solemn
obligation and duty of the plaintiff, at
such ollicial, to furnish such aid."
It is alleged in the answer that In
stead or doing his duty Commissioner
Waldo condoned himself so as to lend the
public generally and tlio members or the
nolico force to believe that "because o
notty official jealousy or istsciiuI vanltv
or consciousness of weakness or lueapa-'
city displayed in coping with Iho (Iifllcul
tles of IiIm oflicial task, or because or n
combination of these and oilier reasons,"
i no answer rues two anonymous letters
written to Commissioner Waldo mouths
before tho killing of Itosenthal which
declared that Hecker wim getting money

Ifecker "lo continue in bis courso of crim
inal conduct which culminated in ' tho
I murder of Rosenthal." It is idlcgod that
the Commissioner continued lo allow
Hecker to erform police berviee after
the District Attorney had convincing
proof against Hecker
