EL1ELL CRIME IMD
TO OLD LOVE NOTES
Turfman Said to Have Had
lottcrs Compromising a
. "Woman Now Harried.
REFUSED TO YIELD THEM
Suspected Slayer Is Believed
to Have Succeeded at Sec
ond Attempt.
Although omclal lnvmtlBators were
unable to report progreas yesterday In
their efforts to aolve tho myatery aur
roundlns tho slaying of Joaeph Downs.
Elwell. tt was said that private detec-.
ttves working upon the case aro pro
feeding along what they bellevo to be a
"warm trail."
This has to do with Elwell's relations
with a young woman, now married and
Hying outside the jurisdiction of the
PlAtrlct Attorney of New York county.
ThcM prlvato detectives are said to have
unearthed evidence that Elwell had com
Into possession of a packet of letters
of a somowhat compromising nature be
longing to this young woman, and that
he had thorn In his house at the time of
his death.
Inquiry made at the District At
torney's office about this packet brought
neither affirmance nor denial. If It was
among the dead man's effects. It would
provide a motlvo for the slaying that
would bo In line with one of tho first
theories ndvanccd regarding the whist
expert's death, which was that tho
slayer had called with the Intention of
forcing Elwell to surrender something
or of killing him If he refused.
The detectives credit tho theory that
a man attempted to attack Elwell In
front of the New Amsterdam Theatre
about six hours before the murder and
followed him to his home In a taxlcab.
They bellevo that this man waited until
another person left ElwellV house and
then demanded that he surrender the
compromising notes. The shooting, thoy
surmise, followed tho tnrfman's refusal
to comply. ,
Aside from this there sremed yester
day to be nothing to trio Elwell murder
Investigation but forlorn hope. The
District Attorney's office and the Po
lice Department appeared utterly devoid
of promising material.
A peculiar feature of the official In
vestigation lies In tho fact that certain
details directly related to the murder
are being withheld even at this lato day.
A representative of The Sun and Nkw
York Hehald asked a representative
of the District Attorney's office yester
day for permission to look at the let
ter found In Elwell's hand when his
body was discovered. The permission
was refused.
This letter was written In Latonla
by. Elwell's trainer, Lloyd Gentry, and
It 'has been stated that It relates merely
to tho condition of two of his raw
horses. The text, for -some reason known'
only to the official Investigators, Is be
ing kept secret
Tho Federal Investigation Into tho
"bootlegging" activities of Elwell's as
sociates, on which Federal agents have
worked night and day for a couple of
weeks, resulted yesterday In the Imposi
tion of a $250 fine upon II. Hobart Por
ter, president of the American Water
Works and Electrical Company, a J30,
090,000 corporation, end an officer or
director In eighteen other concerns,
Mr,. Porter pleaded guilty before Fed
eial Judge Howe to a complaint charg
ing him with violation of the Volstead
law through the purchase of four cases
Of whiskey from Elwell's secretary and
confidential agent, William Barnes. Tho
whiskey was sciied by Federal officers
Friday In Mr. Porter's Park avenue
heme.

RAINCOAT MAN NOT
OFF TO POLAND YET
Permission Revoked, as Poles
DidttZ Know of Sentence.
When Judge H. B. Howe of the United
States District Court discovered yester
day that the Polish Trade Commission
Is unaware of the fact that Felix Oouled,
army raincoat contractor, was convicted
of defrauding the Government he with
drew tho permission he granted Gouled
the day before to go to Poland to nego
tiate tho sale of raw cotton for the
commission.
"If the Polish Trade Commission,
when it learns of your conviction." the
Judge told Gouled, "Is still willing to
have you represent it in theso negotia
tions, you may go, upon tho security of.
$25,000 additional ball."
Gouled Is at liberty on $25,000 ball
pending the decision of the Supreme
Court upon hts appeal from his cor.vlc-
4 ) An In HaUVah , O.O . . . .
,uu wiuvsK ma, unucr which ne
stands sentenced to seven years' imprls-'
finmeni anu payment or a $10,000 fine.
When ho appeared before tho court
Monday and asked permission to go
to Poland Judge Howe said that ho
might go provided he furnished $25,000
additional ball to secure hts return to
this country within three months.
Through his attorney, Oouled repre
ented that his presence in Poland was
(accessary to consummate sales of raw
cotton which would be of benefit to both
this country and to Poland. Several of
ficial' letters were produced in support
ct this contention.
MEAT UP IOC. TO 12C.
AND Will GO HIGHER
O'Malley, Blaming Packers,
Sees No Relief Until Winter.
Meat prices aro 10 to 11 cents higher
over tha retail counter an unusually
high level for the tlmo of year, Tho
dealers who made this observation
yestorday added that tha prices will
mount atlll hlghor. Edwin C. O'Malley,
Commissioner of Markets, said ho ex
pects no relief until cold weather sefs In.
Short shipping to the New York mar
ket Is largely responsible for tho high
prlco wave, Mr, O'Malley said. He ex
plained that the packers find no trouble
elsewhere In tho country, whlls they are
able to raise prices here. New York
acts as a price barometer for tho rest
of the nation.
Mr, O'Malley said that the surplus
army beef purchased by tho big pack
ers from tho Canadian and American
governments has Indirectly created tho
situation.
"This froten meat was taken by tha
packers to New Haven, Syracuse.
Rochester and other points in the near
by States," he said. "It cost them 10tt
cents and was sold as high as 18 and
20 cents, although tho price in New
York was restricted to 13 centa by tho
Government regulations.
"The successful rigging of artmciai
prices by tho packers has even surprised
themselves, and to offset It they aro
bringing Dressure on banks that ad
vanced money to farmers and ranch
men so as to have tho loans called,
thus forcing tho ranchmen to drive
their cattlo to market, which will cut
the prices on live steers. But tho con
sumer may not expect any great rcllof
until tho cold weather seta In."

'RED' SWIMS ASHORE
FROM ELLIS ISLAND
Lithuanian, Awaiting Depor
tation, Escapes From Guard?
A Lithuanian communist of tho an
archistic type who was held at Ellis Isl
and for deportation escaped Monday
night while being taken from tho big
detention room to sleeping quarters. He
Jumped from n second story window
and was seen by one of the guards
swimming toward the Jersey shore. Tho
guards could not immediately pursue
him, fearing that the fifteen other rad
icals In their care might make a break
for liberty if left unguarded. The fugi
tive had a good start before the fifteen
could be taken to their sleeping quar
ters and locked In.
The name of the Lithuanian was with
held by the Immigration officials be
cause they feared Its publication might
interfere with the chances of his cap
ture. He was arrested in Manhattan in
one of the raids conducted by Depart
ment of Justice agents last winter and
boasted of his extreme radicalism. Ho
Is aid to be the man who recently dis
played a red flag In a window. A night
watchman tore down the emblem. On
July he led a procession of radicals
around the detention quarters' waving
an Improvised flag made of red under
clothing and singing the "Internation
ale." He had the choice of being re
leased In $10,000 bond or going back to
Lithuania. He could not raise the bond.
ASK BIG DAMAGES ON
CRUDE OIL CONTRACT
Redfield & Wilson Sue Pro
ducers for $5,000,000.
The firm of Redfleld & Wilson, com
posed of former Secretary of Commerce
William C. Redfleld and Harley P. Wil
son, yesterday sued the National Petro
leum Corporation of 60 Wall Btrect in
the Supreme Court for $5,00O,000.i The

delivery of crude oil.
Tho contract was signed last January.
It contemplated delivery of at least 2,000
barrels of crude oil dally on board tho
plaintiffs' tankers at Tamplco, Mexico,
at 45 cents a barrel. The contract was
to continue In force as long as the Bar
rlgan oil Wells, near Panuco, continued
their flow, and the price waa to "vary
as the Mexican tax on oil varied.
The1 complainants allege that the de
fendant notified the plaintiffs on March
26, 1920, that tho'corporatlon would not
deliver oil under the contract, as ar
rangements had been made to sell It
elsewhere. The defendants. It Is raid,

HYLAN'S ENTOURAGE
WINS BIG PAY MISE
Democratic Aldermen Force
Throngh Tammany's Plat 20
P. 0. Increase Plan.
LA GUABDIA VOTED DOWN
Efforts to Amend Bill to Aid
low Salaried Employees
Aro Defeated.
The Democratic majority ot the Board 1
of Aldermen forced through yesterday
the Tammany 20 per cent, basis for In
creasing the pay of city employees, giv
ing the lion's share of the $5,250,000
bond Issue to the highly paid officials
surrounding Mayor Hylan and the
Borough Presidents at the expense of
clerks, street cleaners, policemen and
firemen.
The Republicans, augmented by tho
Socialists, put up an ail afternoon fight for
the low paid employees, but were unable
to gain tho slightest concession from the
Democrats, though F, H. La Ouardla,
President of the Board, took the floor In
person and offered to consider any kind
of a compromtso the majority would
extend.
Rather than endanger the bond issue
and rob- the city employees of any In
crease at all, tho Republicans capitulated
on the main question and gave tho bonds
their approval. Bruce M. Falconer, Re
publican, cast the only vote against the
bonds, on tho ground that further delay
could do no harm since the Increaso
Is not effective until August 20. .
Police Not Satisfied.
While the Democrats were lauding
the fairness of their basis and pushing
it across the Patrolmen's Benevolent
Association and tho Uniformed Fire
men's Association In session In Maen.
nerchor Hall, were denying the truth ot
Mayor Hyian'a statement that the lower
paid ranks were satisfied with the pro
posed Incrooses. The meeting was at
tended by 2,000 policemen and firemen,
who adopted unanimously a resolution
asking that the maximum salaries of
patrolmen and firemen 'be increased to
$2,500. They are now getting $1,800,
which would be raised to $2,100 under
the 20 per cent arrangement
The $5,255,900 Issue of special revenue
bonds Is designed to tako care of a 20
per cent. Increaso In pay to approxi
mately 43,000 city employees for the
last five months of this' year. The
$26,275,000 payroll which It boosts,
therefore, will1 expand Itself Into a $36,
750,000 payroll in the 1921 budget.
Elected Officials, certain , classes of
laDorers ana some employees i wno re
ceived . Increases In the last year are
not Included In tho raise.
Employees receiving' maintenance In
addition to money aro limited to a 10
per cent, increase. Thus the lowest
paid, that Is hospital employees, will
have their $220 a year salary boosted
to $242 a year. The chief of the Fire
Department will have his $10,000 a
year boosted to $12,000. His $2,000 in
crease will be more than the total salary
of the average fireman or policeman
and almost as much as such a salary
with the proposed 20 per cent, added.
Amendments Beaten,
The fight was precipitated when
August Fcrrand, Republican leader. In
troduced an amendment which would
have limited tho increases to $600 for
all employee receiving more than $3,000
a year. It was the same proposal upon
which Comptroller Charles L. Craig and
the Tammany majority of the Board of
Estimate defeated La Guardla and
Henry H. Curran, President of the Bor
ough ot Manhattan, before the matter
went to the Aldermen. Its object was
to prevent Increases of upward of $2,000
each going to officials already receiving
salaries approximating $8,000.
Under the slogan of i William T, Col
lins, Democratic leader, that "the Re
publicans dare not kilt the entire In
crease," the majority forced the Fer-

Whon all recourses to modify the 20

On the resolution authorising the Is

with Falconer casting the only opposing
vote.
Tho bond resolution now goes back to
tho Board of Estimate for npproyal and
then to tho Mayor for his signature.
Tha debato was fraught with bitter
charges and counter charges of political
favoritism and ulterior motives.
Cnrrnn' Meets Dare.
After a glowing eulogy of the Demo
cratic administration, Leader Collins de
clared that "this Isn't a matter of graft,
but of rewarding faithful city em
ployees." Then turning to the Republi
cans, ho added: "You are not going to
vote against this because you aro am
bitious. Tha President of the Board
and Mr. Curran aro seeking to have
Colin Woodward and tho other Republi
can lieutenant! after them with a politi
cal knife because vthose officials cut
them out of tho increases thoy would
get under tho 20 per cent, baBls."
Curran said ha was willing to have
tho Increaso which came to him upon
assumption of ofilco last January go
back to tho city If tha city so desired,
and La Guardla said that overy em
ployee In his department receiving more
than $3,000 a year not only was willing
to "accept tho $600 Increase limitation
but If they got moro ..would match dol
lar for dollar with any Democrat and
give the money to nny good cause.
"The question before us," said the Al
dcrmanlc President, ."is not that of re
warding highly paid officials with the
salaries which, I have no doubt, they
deserve, but it is to see that every em
ployee of tho city gets a decent living
wage. Tho $4,000 and $5,0p0 man can
worry. along for a while, but It Is the
chap supporting a family on $1,000 and
$1,400 that absolutely demands our at
tention." Collins stated that It tha $600 limita
tion were. Imposed and the resulting
surplus prorated the lower paid em
ployee would gain only fifty centa a
year each thereby.
Falconer's figures showed, however,
that each would recclvo approximately
$116 In the 1921 budget through a sav
ing of $500,000.
A particularly bitter fight arose when
Allyn sought to throw out increases of
$800 each to Wllllnm H. Kenneally,
vice-chairman of tho Board of. Alder
men, and Frank A. Cunningham, chair
man .of the finance' Committee, both
Domocrats, under t:ie charter provision
that the pay of no elective officer Bhall
be Increased dutlng the term for which
ha Is elected. .
Collins denounced the move as "the
trick of a piker." La Guardla sustained
Allyn's point, whereupon Collins np
ja!ed from tho ruling of tho .chair and
tho Tammany steam roller promptly
passed the Kenneally and Cunningham
Increases along.

Banks, Bankers and Brokers, Accountant8,Lawycr8,InBurancc
Companies, Industrial Concerns, and other large profes
sional and corporate interests have emphasized the uptown
business movement by the establishment of main, or
branch offices in the Grand Central Terminal Zone. This
district now is the very heart of the uptown business,
financial and trnnsportation'ccntrc.
This influx of new business population, added to the. already
great concentration of hotel, retail shopping, and other
interests in the Terminal zone, has created an unprece
dented demand for stores and offices in and adjacent t,o
42nd Street, Fifth, Madison, Vanderbilt, and Park Avenues
So insistent is the demand that space now is at a premium,
with bonuses being paid for leases not yet expired.
The demand for space simply cannot be met at any price, arid
several of the more prominent hotels in the 42nd Street
district recently have been acquired for conversion into
office buildings.
To meet this situation, the blocks between Madison and Park
Avenues, 46th and 47th Sts., are to be improved with one
of the largest office buildings in the world, to be known aa
the Park-Madison Building, and to be directly connected
with the Grand Central and subway stations.
The New Thirly-One Story
Park-Madison Building
will absolutely dominate the uptown business Centre. ' It
will be coloperatively owned and managed. It 'will be

A Surety Company Bond will guarantee completion of building..
An amount of space will be reserved for renting, the revenue
from which, it is estimated, will be sufficient to pay all
operating expenses and leave a surplus, thus eliminating
future rental payments by stockholders.

NEW YORK is the financial cen

Street, because of the location of the
Stock Exchange, is the financial
centre of New York. Because,
however, of the shortage of avail

of renting in the Wall Street zone,
it has become necessary to establish
a new financial district uptown.
The heart and centre of this district
is the Terminal Zone, which has
great transportation advantages.
Office space, in and near the Ter
minal Zone, at $4 to $7 per sq. ft.
is absorbed as rapidly as' produced.
With bonuses being paid for leases
not yet expired, the demand is
far greater than the supply. ,
