Crime Prober Says 'Look for a

in That Direction.
Working upon clues furnished by
William I Sanies the stocklly built,
middle aged Knf-llslnnan who was
serving as Joseph Hownc lilwcU's eon
flilniii.il secretory at the time of l'l
ucirs death on the morning of June
11. detectives set out afresh yesterday
In search of the slayer of the whist
expert .mi owner of race horses.
Barnes who Is said to have known
mu' li of I'hveH's affairs with women
itml of other private details of his life
find to have kept written memoranda
of all of his employer's important
KKial engagements and sporting and
financial affairs, spent virtually the
entire day yesterday In the District
Altornr,'s office.
Present at the Conference were
nearly all of the ottlclals who have
been directing different phases of the
hunt for the slayer that to date has
pioird futile.
The assemblage included Alfred J.
Taliex . John T. Doollng, John F. Joyce
and Albert Blogg Unset. Assistant
District Attorneys; Capt. Arthur Carey
of the. Homicide Bureau of the I'olice
Department, Capt. Thomas Walsh of

At its conclusion it was said that the
talk had dealt largely with a number of
I" rsons who Barnes thought might have
possessed strong motives for killing his
former employer. Several of these per
sons made no secret of their hitter en
mity toward the turfman. It Is under
stood that certain women were men
tioned bv Barnes in this category as
well as certain of Klwell'a former ene
mies in the sporting world.
It was said that no results art expected
before to-morrow, when the District At
torney will have received reports from
some of the detectives on the results of
their work In running down cluej, and
when It Is thought several persons here
tofore not mentioned in the case will be.
brought Into the prosecutor's office for
questioning.
There Is a possibility, however, of ac-
tivltj In the District Attorney's office
this afternoon in event or some much
ought persons turning up before that
time. Some officers assigned to the case
Rill be at the prosecutor's offlco In
tenrtlncss for such developments.
Juit why this action Is taken upon
Barnes's suggestions at present and
why It was not taken at least a week
figo was not expalned. As he has been
living at Klwell'a late homo, 2U West
Seventieth street, with a large force of
iletecthes since tho occurrence of the
tragedy It seemed strange to many per
sons that this action should rot have
been taken until nine days after the
murder.
Jt was surmised, however, that certain
developments' of the last few days may
have suggested to Barnes clues ho had
jreviously failed to notice.
In going upon tho new hunt the offl-
lals made It perfectly plain that they
have not abandoned trails they pre
Mously had been following. Some mat
ters brought to their attention by Barnes
re said to be related to certain clues
heretofore discussed, while others point
in new directions.
Old Theories May Ue Wronir.
Inicstlgatlon of tlicm Is being carried
en. according to the authorities, becausi
pite all theories It Is possible that
the real motive of the murder was dif
ferent from all conjectures, and that the
t.acr will turn up where least ex
pected. Another clue on which the police are
working Is said to have been furnished
within the last forty-eight hours by Kd
wln Rhodes. Klwell'a chauffeur, and is
o tho effect that the whist expert was'

some detectives wcro inclined yester
! to suggest suicide because of their
Inability to prove any one to be the
layer. This theory is contrary to the
findings of the County Medical Exam

A big Coney Island sightseeing bus
broke away from a crowd that hal
gathered around it at Broadway and
Fortieth street early last night, and
with exhaust roaring and Its twenty
passengers screaming to the chauffeur
began n race through Thirtieth street
toward Fifth avenue. Behind It dashed
a taxlcab with a policeman on the
running board shouting to the bus
chauffeur to stop. At Fifth avenue
the sightseeing car skidded around "he
corner and swung south, gaining soed
on the decllno and dashing past scores
of other automobiles.
Past Uio Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, wltn
hundreds of men and women following j
It, the big vehicle sped to Thiriy-sec-1
ond street, where tho policeman, re-1
volvcr In hand, made a flying leap that j
took him from his perch on the taxi
cab to the running board beside the bus
chauffeur. I
"Step!" he commanded and the bus
halted with a Jerk that threw Its pas
sengers forward.
Then the policeman, Richard Schlnd
ler of the West Thirtieth street station,
led the way back to Broadway and
Fortieth street, where Mrs. Belle Martin
of 172 Bay Thirty-fourth street, Brook
lyn, was found unconscious on the side
walk. Hhe was placed in an automobile
and taken with Wiener to the police
station. On her complaint, made when
she had been attended by an ambulance
surgeon from New York Hospital,
Wiener was locked up on a charge of
felonious assault. It being alleged he
kicked her In the stomach during an
argument over the refunding of fares.
According to the story told by. Mrs.
Martin, she, with her sister, Mrs, A.
Sanders, and a friend, Mrs. S. Blaine
of 444 State street, Brooklyn, staited
for Coney Island via tho bus route, pay
ing Wiener J3 for the tiip. They ex
pected to see the bus start immediately,
she said, but Wiener persisted in cir
cling the streets in the vicinity of
Times Square looking for other passen
gers. Finally the three women became
tired of riding around that section of
the city and demanded their fares back.
Wiener returned the money, and as they
walked away, according to Mrs Martin,
called after them.
Mrs. Martin said she heard herself
called a name she resented. She turned
and slapped Wiener on the mouth. He
fell Into the gutter, and as the crowd
passing them cheered her act. he turned
back. She told the police he kicked her
and that she dropped unconscious from
pajn. Then followed the pursuit of the
bus, with Wiener at the wheel.
The police reported that Mrs. Martin
recently recovered from an operation
and that tho Injury elie suffeied as a
result of tho kick might prove serious.
She was taken to her home In a taxlrab
after her Injuries had been attended.

Montreal, June ID. The American
Federation of Lubor adjourned Its
annual convention hero to-night after
Indorsing the League of Nations with
out reservations.
The closing session of the two weeks'
convention was a stormy one. Irish
sympathizers, supported by the pro
gressive wing of the Federation, op
posed tho movement to Indorse the
league, and throughout, the debite on
the question President Samuel Gom
pers had difficulty In maintaining
order. His gavel was smashed In his
efforts to quiet the proceedings. t
.Mr. Gompers and the executive
council will leave immediately for
Washington to put Into operation the
programme framed by the convention.
The llrot move, It was said, will bo
launched against the Democratic Na
tional Convention to obtain Incorpora
tion of the Federation's programme in
the party platform. They will urge
nlso that the Federation's non-partisan
political policy, which was unani
mously approved by the convention,
be carried out.
Labor's programme ns outlined by the
convention demands the following;
Government ownership with demo
cratic operation of railroads.
Curb on profiteers and high cost of
living through cooperative storea.
Jailing of food and clothing profiteers.
Hlght to strike and abolition of com
pulsory arbitration and antl-strlkc legis
lation. Hands off In Mexico by the United
States Government.
Indorsement of the Irish Republic.
Hlght of collective bargaining.
Advances In wages wherever necessary
to maintain the American standard of
living.
Shorter work dnv If necessary to pre
vent unemployment.
The League of Nations issue nioso
shortly before idjournmenl. Its oppo
nents weio unable to gather sufficient
votes for a loll call and a number of
Itlsh sympathizers Jumped to the floor
nnd demanded that their votes be re
corded as "No" In the records.
President Gompers was compelled to
take the floor In support of the lengue
when It became apparent that the dele
gates were swinging to tho opposition.
The report of the committee on i.iter
natlopal relations, which was adopted,
.declaied that to reject the league uould
be "Indorsing the polhy of gieed, ha
tred and brutal war ns tho rule that
guides in the settlement of relations be
tween nations.
"It Is not a perfect document, and per
fection Is not claimed for It." the re
port added. "It does, however, mark
the nearest approach to perfection that
ever has been devlKd for prevention of
war. It must m.et with the unqualified
approval and support of the American
working people."
"When has tile American Federation
of Labor failed to place Itself on rccoid
for International peace?" asked Mr.
Gompers.
"I can't recall it. Shall we nuw re
verse the unlnteirupted policy which we
have supported?"
Speaking of dlsai mament, Mr. Gompers
said even If Hit- United States should
ratify the League of Nations the world
will not se dls irni.im"iit the Mist year,
or ma be for a decade,
Dan McKlllop of Seattle led the oppo

It guarantees the territorial Integrity of

Wasiunoiox, June 19. Senator
Harding, Republican nominee for
President, has given up his plan of a
short vacation at some Eastern resort
before returning to his Ohio home to
receive the formal notification of his
nomination. Instead he will remain In
Washington until Just before July 15,
tho probable date for the notification,
end then go direct to Marlon.
This change was necessitated by the
difficulties of moving such an estab
lishment as has been created here, In
cluding olllclnl and family households,
Senator Harding explained.
"Therefore," he added, "I have de
cided to abandon tho vacation :)nd will
remain hern until I go to Marlon."
Senator Harding passed some time
to-day with A. It. Johnson of Ironton,
Ohio, who was the Ohio member of the
committee of resolutions at Chlcugo
and will be the temporary chairman
of the Ohio State Convention at Co
lumbus June 'iS. 29 and 30. Their dis
cussion was for the purpose of ex
chancing ideas about campaign poli
cies in order that there might be en
tire harmony between Mr. Johnson's
speech and the candidate's speech of
acceptance.
"I suppose," suggested Alexander P.
Moore, the Pittsburg publisher, during
Mr. Harding's conference with the news
paper men. "that there la no secret of
the fact that OU 1!I uCcept the nomina
tion when it Is formally notified to your'
I think 1 shall," smiled Senator Har
ding. He added that he had plans for
conferences next week with former Sen
ator Beveridge (Ind ), l.leuL-Col. Theo
dore Roosevelt. Jr.. and others In the
liberal wing of the party.
Silent Now 011 Prohlliltloii.
Senator Harding wa tl.own an inter
view with VerRil W. Hlnsluw, chairman
of the Prohibition party's national com
mittee, saying that Mr. Hinshnw hid
sent 11 telegram to Senator Harding ask
ing I' he favored any Increase In the
lejal alcohollu content of liquors above
one-half of one per cent. Senator Har
ding's secretary said he would have no
comment or reply to make until he dis
cussed his position in hla speech of ac
ceptance. ,
Attention belni called to a statement
that Senator Hiudlng once took shares
of tock In a brewer at Marlon. It was
explained that at a time when the brow
cry was being established as a new tn
djtry In his home town he took Just
three ohares. That win In pursuance of
a policy of taking an Inlcrett in new in
dustries generally which had led to In
veslmenjs 111 manv establishments. In
the case of the brewery It did not pro
d luc very :ood beer and the Investment
was a losi.
The noui'nee this afternoon hi Id a
conference with Harry Jt. D iugherty of
Columbus, manager of his nomination
campaign, and National Committeemen
A. T. Hint of Kentucky and John W.
Weeks of JIassai hiisett". The two last
named arc members of the subcommittee
of the National Committee charged with
arranging for notlflcatlof and the pre
liminaries of the. campaign, while Mr.
Daugherty Is acting as a personal rep
resentative f Senator Harding. On
Monday the subcommittee will meet hern
f til Chairman Hays uf the Nutlor.al
Committee and Senator Harding to take
up nnal arrangement'.
There has been some suggestion of n
sort of dual management of the cam
paign, in which Mr. Daugherty. icpre
sentlnc the nominee, might cooperate
with the National Committer chiefs. It
has caused some Interest because of the
Ohio factional situation.

San Fuas-cisco, Juno 19. Certain
Democrats who circled the Hcpubllran
citnp at Chicago llko coyotes, ululat
ing predictions of an Irrepurahle O. O,
P. split, foresee a week of tribulation
for thlr own party after tho Demo
cratic 'Convention gets down to busi
ness on June 28. Tho man closest
to Woodrow Wilson expressed a fairly
general opinion when he said thl.i
evening that It looks like a deadlock
as to candidates, and row after row
over the vital planks of the platform.
Of course the convention is a week
and more away, and there remains
vivid uncertainty whether Mr. Wilson
will or Mr. Wilson won't. Many
things can happen, doubtless as Im
portant as the withdrawal (to be taken
with or without salt) of McAdoo.
View of the Sltnatlon.
Hut as the run of talk goes this
evening, as the half a dozen or so of
headmen survey the field of candi
dates, the situation, as1 they see it, Is
about this:
J McAdoo's retliement, reaffirmed this
afternoon In a telegram to his friend
Bay BakerjSls to be taken seriously, the
point of Interest now being where the
SicAJoo support will turn.
2 Attorney-General A. MltcheirPalmer
.s supposed lo have only a slim
chance for the reason, as one leader put
It, ' that poor Palmer had to do all the
dirty ivork because of the Job he was In."
Translated, this means that there Is a
feeling that Palmer's activities through
tho Department of Justice Is a handicap
too big for the party to shoulder. '
3 Senator Carter aia.n of Virginia will
be eliminated because he Is from
Virginia, the idea being that there is les-j
rensrn this year than ever before for the
Democracy to name a. man from the
sure, tire section of the solid South, all
considerations of political strategy de
manding a candidate from the Ccntial
State or the West.

New Jersey Is lightly regaided for

would bo impossible for any man so

because of his liberal stand on beer and

mately J3.250.000.00n. Fewer Govern
ment employees and smaller appropria
tions for the army and navy were cited
by Mr. Mondell as possibilities for re
ductions. Mr. Mondell estimated that for the
fWai war liecinniiiK next month Gov
ernment revenues would exceed expenses
by at least I.0ICC04,720. unless "un
usual expenditures not contemplated by
Congress" are madef This expected sur
plus, the Republican leader said, was
due to economies by Congress In the
recent session, when J4,373.r!5:..280 was
provided for the year's expenres. In de
terminlng the surplus Mr. Mondell raid
he accepted the niot conservative estl
mate of revenues made by the Treasury,
or a total of JD.i20.000.OtiO.
The unbonded war debt was placed at
J3,20.000,000 by Mr. Mondell, who said
it was a "continual menace," but when
reduced by the anticipated surplus would
bring the country "within reaching dis
tance of reductions of the burdens of
taxation."

Ciiicaoo, June 19. With his bland
est "I know nothing! what do you
know?" air Boss Charles F. Murphy of
Tammany Hull, U. S. A., potential
leader of the New York State delega
tion to the Democratic National Con
vention, descended upon Chicago to
day. With him were Gov. Alfred 10. Smith,
who holds the honor of being chair
man of the delegation: Adjutant-Gen.
Charles W. Berry, Lieut. Alfred H.
Smith, Jr., In military dress as a mem
ber of tho staff; Charles M. Winches
ter of tho J. B. Lyon Co., printers, In
Albany, and William A. Humphrey of
tho sitme city, for many years head of
(he Secret Service of the New York
Central Railroad.
Illinois IIiih Sees Murphy.
However, George K. Brennan, who
since the death of Roger Sullivan has
been acting as "boss" pro tern, of the
j Illinois Democrats, was In conference
with Mr. Murphy and the Governor be
fore the' had been at the Bluekstono
Hotel for two hours.
"1 think that the withdrawal of Will
iam G. McAdoo from the race for the
Presidential nomination means that
President Wilson wants to run for a
third term," said Mr. Brennan when he
came down stairs after an extended In
tervlcw. "Did they agree with you," Mr. Bren
nan was asked,
"Well, they said nothing to contra
dict me." was the reply. "Of course,
we have got to havo some sort of a
League of Nations nnd wtio better would
there be than President Wilson to run
un such a platform," added Mr. Brcn-
j nan with a sly wink of his eye.
It lit understood Brennan told the New
Yorkers that they could rely on tho
gieatcr pan of the Illinois delegation
for support In a fight for a "wet," or
nt least a "moist" plank in the plat
form. The Murphy VlriTpol.il.
Naturally, and ns ban been the case In
previous years, Murphy Is thinking of
the National Convention In terms of the
local New York State and city situation
and believes a wet plank will prove pop
ular. He believes a play for a plapk
sympathizing with the desire of Ireland
for Independence may win back som.i
of tho Irish-American following which
left tho Tammany wigwam In tho last
election.
When one asks who the Tammany
candidate for President may bo the
best Information is that Murphy et al.
are not tied to any one. They do not
want a ticket headed by the President
again. They do not want McAdoo. They
do not want any representative of the
present Administration.
But Vice-President Marshall or Gov.
Cox of Ohio would he acceptable.
Frankly, Mr. Murphy does not know
which one wilt be more avallablo and
his mind Is entirely open.
"Who's your favorite?" Mr. Murphy
was asked as he stepped off a train
from the Indiana health resort to-day.
"Have none." was the reply so well
known in Tammany Hall.
"New York's fuvorit?"
"Have none."
"Who'll it be?"
"Convention will decide.-
"McAdoo's withdrawal'."'
"Nothing to say."
The Governor was told of a general
sentiment here that the answer to the
McAdoo declination was that tho Presi
dent wanted to run again.
"Nobody can tell until the conven
tion meets," he snld. "It looks to me
jllke an old fashioned conteU any one's
I race "

WASiiiNcno.v. Juno 19. That Presi
dent Wilson really Is lllrtlug with tho
possibility of receiving tho Dcmocratld
Presidential nomination for a third
term at tho San Francisco Convention
Is the slowly developing opinion to
night In Washington.
That he is leaving tho door open
preparatory to stopping In at tho
proper time with n view of walking
off ns the party standard bearer to
mako hl own fight for his own League
of Nations Is tho only deduction
shrewd politicians, Democrats and Re
publicans alike, arc able to draw from
the chain of remarknblo circumstance
that havo come to pass within tho last
few days.
Tho discussion of Mr. Wilson ns a
tlilnl term possibility seemed to be
the excluslvo subject among politi
cians. The White House inalntnlncd
strict silence, hut closu friends of the
President took no steps to end the
wide speculation. This situation In
Itself, almost on tho eve of tho con
vention, has Its significance.
In well Informed circles the story
went tho rounds that the unexpected
withdrawal from tho race of William,
O. McAdoo was at tho Instance of tho
President. The story even went SJ
far as to say Mr. Wilson had Insisted
that Mr. McAdoo step out of the cod
test In order to throw Uio (hid wide
open with the prospect that ilin con
vention would get Into suli n tangle
over candidates that the ren miliiallon
of the ITesldent would be the only
possible course to follow. a
.Support for tlx Story.
In support of tins story politicians
called attention lo the lact that of the
1092 delegates It h necessary for he
winner to receive the votes of 728, or
twu-thhu... Of Ihe candidates now In
the field it is hard to flguie bow any of
them will be able to get anywhere near
this number of votes curly In the game.
A complete deadlock, running tho con
vention Into many ballots, would seem to
be a condition from which there would
be no escape, partlularly If tho domi
nating candidnte, as '.Mr. McAdoo had
been regarded, were eliminated.
Such a condition, according to Mr,'
Wilson's method of figuring, inlgu't
make It logical that his name
should be presented as a solution to the
doudlock. Whether tho convention
would nominate him, of course, Is an
entirely different matter There nr
many Democratic leaders who believe Mr,
Wilson, even If he came out In the open
as a candidate, could nut receive the
nomination.
However that may be, the outstanding
facf remains that nobody doubts that
Mr. Wilson If ho wcro nominated would
accept. Ho Is unwilling to announco
himself as an avowed candidate, but It
the convention saw fit to put him up as
the leader he would welcome the oppor
tunity of carrying to tho country what
ho regards ns a referendum for the
League of Nations 'Without eracntl.il res
ervations.
The World Interview, which had the
approval of the While House before It
saw print, left tho distinct Impression
that Mr. Wilson Is physically caoablo of
carrying on the" work of Chief Execu
tive. It Is understood that photographs
of the President are to be printed soon
to further convey the Idea of the phys
ical fltnesa which has been described.
Wllaon'a View Reported.
Thoro who regard It as a possibility
that Mr. Wilson really Is reeking re-
nnmlnatlon believe that ho Is of the
opinion that no great campaign would be
required to win on tho League of Na
tions platform. There Is no (luestinu
about Mr. Wilson's Inability to take tht
stump, but he still has his typewriter
and there still is a sting to hln writing.
Senator Brandegeo (Conn.) had Inter
esting comment to make, on the tltua-
tion. He declared that the synchroniza
tion of the Wilson Interview and the
McAdoo withdrawal could only be re
garded as parts of a plan to force the
nomination of Mr. Wilson by making
the Wilson attitude toward the League
of Nations an uncscapablo lsue In the
campaign. It was calculated, ho In
sisted, to force nil other candidates out
of the way and leave the field to tnv
President.
Senator Brandeeec insisted, and In
this he Is not without considerable Dem
neratln sutiDorl. that the Pre,cldent la
I .tAr.f I. it'llUn In ni cent He nnmlnn.
Hon it it Is offered.
"To be defeated on M. plstfoim de
mands would be a complete defeat fir
him In any case,'' sild Senator Brandc
gee. "It he can save him-elf 'rom that
defeat bv taking the nomination for
President he will be saved fron' repudia

polls, it would be no gieatcr defeat than
