United States In recent months, figures!

Department of Commerce- show that
export shipments are not yet In full
The figures tend to dlsprovo state

quarters that there were heavy ship

Untied States In September and Octo
ber The authorltleti say their advices
Indicate that such shipments Increased
this month, but the figures for Novem

It is the general expectation that the
Government statistics for November,
uhlch will be made public the latter
part of next month, will show a largely
increased outward movement, made up
of munitions of war und other artickn

The trade figures for September and
October prepared by the Bureau of t-'oi-elgn

generally only slight Increases in the
thipinmi of munltluns compared with
hlpmeiita of such products In the cor

Oioker, on his honeymoon to Florida
with his Indian bride, was not very
loquacious to Itttervlewers here to-day
except on the subject of Mrs. Croker.
He brouohed the subject relative to his
bride himself. He smiled when he spoke
of her a .Mis, Croker. She had been
taking a nap und had not yet aieared.
Croker said his wife wanted to correct
the rcpi.rt that she hail appeared ns an
actress In one of the Hippodrome produc
tlonn. "This report is unttue, and Mrs. Cro';e
wlslies it corrected." said Mr. Croker.
"She has always taken an Interest In
the affairs of her people, but she has
never even thought of going upon tlu
stage as their representative."
Asked if she was a suffragette, Mr.
Croker said only in a partial degree.
"Hilt she Is a Democrat," he culitlr.utd.
"She is one of the most enthusiastic and
energetic Democrats you ever saw. Hut I

OF HKIXt! IXKOILMKi:
The possibility of a pew elu to the,
nihtery surrounding the murder last
Tuesday night of Harnett HafT, poultry1
merchant, came last nigh: with the mur- i
iler of a gamrster and reported stool
plKi-m In a saloon at I'lghtli avenue and

The moment Assistant I lt r.i-t Attorney

over to the West Thlrt.v -s. enth street
pollen station to Mew the body. Mr.
Deuel is working on the HafT ease, and
though he went us a nutter of du'y In
connection with his work In the homicide
bureau he said before leaving his home
"The name of Doyle Is fr-sh In my
mind, though I am not sure I have heard
it In connection with the HitT case. My
recollection Is that Dojl" was mixed up
ill a gang light on thu West Side last

tiiother Theory il 11 nee.l.
Another theory of Dnvle's murder Is
that the Hudson Diuteix of (Jri-eiiwich
Village killed him. Doyle was a member
of the ilval Cophcr gang, and he was
sent. need to I'lmlra a jear ago for carry
ing a gun and was leiently charged with
felonious as.mlt. lie u well known to
the police because of Ills gang Interests,
and it u.i suggested hist nlcht that he
may have been one of the I'.ophere who
escaped after a stieet shooting In Tenth
avenue in the lower Twenties last week
in which thrie b.vstanders were wounded.
Do)Ie went alone to the saloon on the
northeast corner of Klghth avenue and
Forty-first street last night, and was
told a "friend"' hail called up and told
him to be sure to wait, for ho had u Job,
Dojln waited for half an hour, drinking

Doyle was 22 years old. He lived at

pocket was an unsigned letter from a girl
who complained of his lack of affection
for her, but professed mier cndlnc love
for him. The litter ended saying, "sou j
shall never see me again." ,
Working on a well defined theory and
following certain definite clues, the police
seemed yiwterdiiy to be making piogress
toward solving the mystery of the ass.is.

near his olllce, 1"2 Thompson avenue, l.ict
Do'.ectlves were out yesterd iy in Man

and in Philadelphia searching the haunts
of gangsters for men believed to have
been concerned In the actual killing of
Raff. They have received information
about the brown automobile In which the
slayers are reported to have fled and they
were hunting not onl tho actual slavers

The police ,ue now fully convinced that
the murderers were hired gunmen who
