tlronx, hai! removed for good and all the prll nf handmade, scientifically con structed Infernal machines. And yet tho maker of thn machine, which destroyed Miss Anusewltz was more skilful iind mori- Intelligent than that of the? half de ranged Hronx youth. Tho bomb of yes terday was mnrc powerful and destructive than tho bomb which shattered Qrace Taylor's body or tho bomb which was meant to hill Judge ltosalsky. Dougherty summed up ths situation In a ilosen nnxlmn words: "We've (tot to catch that devil or there'll be no peace for anybody." The story of what happened from the time the Infernal machine was offered for shipment at the express office In the How ery until tin- latest development of the ln estimation by the police o.m be told simply. It Is all that Is known except I for certain details of the murderer's ap pearance which aie police secret for tho pnscnt. At a quarter past 4 o'clock on Thursday afternoon Moe Andrews, a clerk In the branch ottlee of tlm Adams Express Com pany at the Hon cry and llroome street, was busy with the rush of early holiday shipments. I, miked llonely lit .Mun. tie whs too much occupied to scrutinize evciy man or woman who entered the olllce, but there were ret tain reasons why he looked closely at a young man who came in briskly and placed on tho counter a parcel wrapped In coarse brown paper ami Hi inly tied with heavy string. Young Andrews weighed the parcel, an nounced tho weight, which was four Hound.-, and said to the customer: "lo .oti want to pay for this hero?" The young man didn't trouble himself to peak. He nodded. "Twenty cent chaws," nald the clerk, iHiokltu the parcel and making out a re ceipt. As he niado out the receipt he ex amined, a a matter of course, the In scriptions on tho paper cover of the box, hleh was ten Inches Ions, tight Inches wide and six Inches deep. He law that It was addressed not to an Individual, but to a company. In li glide handwriting was "Tho O. K. llottllng l"n.. C2S-G30 West Thirty-eighth streit." In the upper right hand corner was written by the same hand "Surprise lnd. Co." And lu the tipper left hand cor ner wa "2311 Mattery Place." TluiUKlit n .tlunli-rrV'a Joke. Helm; up alert youth and knowing his New York Andrews inlsfd his eyebrows over ":3!i llattery Place." He knew that the addresi was fictitious, since the num liers on llattery I'laee do not run so high by any means, but he didn't consider that It was his duty to question the customer. All necessity for questioning was remoed by the addiess of the shipper. "Surprise lint. Co." In this detail appeared the forethought of the bomb maker. To nvolij the danger of questioning he put tho shippers art dress, always irqulred by expiess com panies, on the pan-el. There Is no such coin-fin a the "Surprise lnd. Co." To the police that appealed to bo a bit of In fvrnul hiimiPi, a murdeior's Joke. Hut the fictitious address aroused An drews's curiosity and be Kuo the cus tomer a looking over. He seemed, An dieus said last night, to be "something between a driver and u clerk": not n la tuning man nor yet a man of business, lie was an Italian by uppeariinco and he wine a suit of dark clothes. At tho re quest of the l-olleo Andrews kept silent on other di talis of description. The man left the olllce hurriedly ufter obtaining a icuclpt. Following the usual routine the parcel was taken to the Adams Express Com pany branch distributing ottlce at !42 Wen Forty-seventh stieit, the nearest agmcy to the addiess on the parcel. Go ing uptown It was Jolted with a wagon loud of packagts and was held all night In tlm West Forty-seventh street office. It was Milt out In the first delivery yes today miitnliiK by George L.

Tbo girl seemed to McCabe to be ill an unusually happy mood. She eaine In singing and attacked the flrst routine of tho office, opening the mall, with a song on her Hps. Ida Anusewltz was Just under nineteen. She was graduated from the Washington Irving High School, with honors, a year ago lust summer. Her placo as book keeper for the o. K.

Callanan, Jr., a aon of the proprietor, bad been the book keeper and stenographer, but ho left hla father to take a Job with the Edwin H. Low Steamship Aptney nt 1123 Broad way. Miss Anusewltz was a very effi cient employee. Mr. Callanan regarded her as a model mid ner ofllcu relations wcro ugreeablu. In many ways sh was a girl of In teresting personality. Sho was born In Russia, but bud grown up unit been edu cated In New York. Her father, Nathan Auusewiti'., has it Jewelry store at 37 Clinton street, and Is In good clrcum Btanres. Ida was tho second nf eight children who llvo at tho Anusewltz home, 163 Suffolk street. Mrs. Sarah nusewitz, the mother, has been 111. Tho news of her daughter's death was kept from her yesterday becuuso of the doctor's belief that tt would snap the thread of her life. Helped Children nf Nelvbliorbooil. Ida waa Interested lu the Educational Alliance In East Broadway. Occasionally she taught little Jewish children of the East Side Itusslan folk dances or gave them help with their school work. Sn was fond of reading good boocs and had a card In the Hester street branch of the Public Library. She went to tho opera when sho could afford it and whs pas lonately fond of music. She hud with her when sho went to work yesterday morning Iteno liazln a "The Fenltents," which sho had taken from tho library on Thursday. Whllo waiting for .Mr. McCube to step Into the office she read a few pages ami then when McCabe entered took up the task of sorting the offlco mall and .Ml. ('.(Italian's private, letters. McCabe Jested with her. She told him Bayly that she was going In the evening to tho Metropolitan Opera House to hear "Tannhaueser." und showed him two tickets that she had for herself and a girl friend. McCube leaned against one of the two breast high bookkeepers' desks and watched tho gill's busy tlngeis. Thero was a knock it t tho door while the girl worked and McCnbe looked on. An expressman entered carrying a cubical parcel wrapped lu brown paper. He handed It to McCabe, saying, ''Sign here; line marked 0." The sales manager took the parcel, acilbbled a receipt In tho driver's book, d'dn't glance at the man long enough even to eo what company ho worked for, and set tho parcel on Miss Anusenitz's desk. For half an hour It lay there unnoticed by either. Chance Meeting Sutea ( nlluiinii.

"Very likely nitroglycerin In a heavv glass bottle." said Mr. Dougherty last night. "Of course, I'm guessing, but It looks to me as If the explosion was brought about by means of a percussion enp, a connecting wire nnd n dry battery When Miss Anusewltz opened the lid of the box an electric cllrcult was clos.-d. A spark was si nt along Hue copper wire to tho percussion cap ami the nltio let go." There was no menus of determining yesterday whether or not the machine or bomb had been stuffed with metal mis siles. An autopsy to be performed to day on the body of Miss Anusewltz will settle that point very likely The ap pearance of the colling and the walls of the olllce Indicated that the bomb was loaded with bits of metal.

And we'll get him. Make no mistake about that I have eliminated posslhlo enmity on the part of anybody toward tlm girl. Common sense seems to indicate that Mr. Callanan was the In tended victim.

CHAMP CLARK CALLS ECONOMY MEETING DtMiioorntitt Lenders, Scared, Will Try tn Hold Down Aprnirlatlons. iTHKKK'S TALK OF DKFICIT Speaker in Stntement Denies Alarm, but Conference Js Set for To-dnv. Washinoton. Dec. 12. Alarmed by the prospect of reduced revenues nnd the de mand for appropriations, Democratic lenders will meet lu conference In the office of Speaker Clark to-morrow to devise ways to keep down expenditures. Kear Is expresed thnt unless the brakes are applied the appropriations of this session will far exceed the record for a single year Speaker Claik believes that he and his associates owe it to the country and tlm party to take the lead In retrenchment In order that the House which originates nppropilatlon bills, may be warned that unless the purse strings are drawn, a Tn usury deficit may soon succeed the present surplus. Speaker Clark cnllen the economy con ference that Is to he held to-morrow nt the request of leaders charged with j the lesponslblllty of framing approprla tlnn hills, Me was Informtd that the es I tlmates recently submitted to Congress I approximate KiO.OOO.OOO over the amount made nvallable for the purposes of the tlovernmerit this year. The appropria tions this year footd up to $1,088, 678, TSS, Furthermore the estimates of the Demo cratic administration submitted at the beginning of this sisslon are nearly 14,000,000 In excess of those presented In the Inst year of the preceding ltepubll enn administration.

A contrast Is thus presented that the Democratic leaders do not care to face on the stump next year The conference will give wanting to members demand ing appiopriatlnns for local Improvements, nnd If this proves Ineffectual nil ap pi nl for help to ward on" nssaulls on the national strong box that may result In a deficit will be made to President Wll- bOll. Democratic leaders were chagrined to da when they leaiind that their fesrs of u deficit had attained publicity. Speak er Clark prompptly Issued a statement In which he denied that he or any ot the leaders had doubts as to the revenue producing qualities or the Democrntlu tariff. Ill his letter addressed to the chairman of the Appropilntlons Commit teo the Speaker dwelt with emphasis on the necessity for keeping appropria tions "within reasonable limits." The estimate presented nt the begin nlng of the session covers In large part the fixed charges of the Hovernincnt. It does not take Into account 1 1 - tlu.ono.dnli river and harbor bill, $20,000,0)0 or !o for public buildings, a multitude of minor mnsures Involving the expenditure of public money nnd probablo appro priations for good roads.
