Burns,1- Confessing to Suvc
Baksa Girl, Amazes and
Amuses Court Iloom.
HAS LEGAL KNOWLEDGE
. Admits Numerous Crimes, Con-;
fuses' Prosecutor and Mokes
James P. Burns, In Sins Sins under
the name of Regan, confessed In court
yesterday that he and not Elizabeth
Baksa murdered Mrs. Helen Hamel,
for whoso death tho girl Is being tried.
Ills native acuteness made him n
pert and fascinating witness. Ho nr
Kued with the Judge, upset tho prose
cutor by his knowledge of law, blandly
confessed to numerous crimes, Includ
ing the robbery of the home of one of
the alienists wio recently examined
him, and when prcssod too hard took
refuge In techlnal objections, In which
Judgo Itosalsky was forced to sustain
him... He time and again provoked
laughtor by hta unexpected frankness
and evident pride In his professional
Burns's reason for confessing, he
said, was pity for tho girl and a desire
to see justice dono her, although In
tho next breath ho admitted that per
haps he won't the sort of person who
would be interested In Justice as a
"Did your conce'cnce troublo you?"
.inked Assistant District Attorney Tal
loy, rigorously probing for his con
struction of a motive.
"Well," said Burns easily, "I don't
know as I havo any from what I've
Telia of Ills Hxplolt.
Ho croaked ono leg over tho other
as ho told of his many midnight ex
cursions into other people's homes and
of a career so successful that he waa
able, when ho choso, to buy an expen
sive automobile in which no could trail
W.3 other prospectlvo victims and be
come acquainted with their habits.
He smiled easily as ho told of go-
ng about with Brooklyn detectives on
tho occasion of his last conviction,
and pointing out to them houses he
had robbed. V.
"Ono of them was, I think, the home
of a minister next to Judge Elko's,"
he said romlnlscentlyi
"Why didn't, you rob Judge Dike's?"
he was asked.
"Well, I would have, but he was
in," ho said quickly, and a laugh rip
pled over tho court in which Judge
The only things Burns refused to
divulge were tho name of his partner
in tho Hamel murder, or details of
tho crime he committed in the days
when ho spent part of his time follow
ing Mrs. Hamel In his automobile. The
morning of tho murder, February 13,
ho and his partner went down to
West Twenty-third street about 11
o'clock and stood for a tims across
the street watching tho Hamel house.
Ho had :i revolver and a blackjack in
"Wa saw two men enter and my
partner went in about half past 12 or
so, or I o'clock. I stood outside ten
or flften minutes before J entered."
"How did you go in?"
"I went in through the door," he
"Did you see a girl?"
"Xo, not until wo went out."
"Did you sen anybody go out?"
"Yes, a woman."
She dashed out a door leading into
tho hall near the front of the house,
h said, and he followed her to the
street to pec If she went in tho direc
tion of tho West Twentieth street
police station. Then he went back
and saw his partner again. He had
hold of Mrs. Huniel.
Smv Her "Cnvf In," lie .
"I saw ,i struggle going on. and
then she s.igged, Fort of caved in.
as I went In tho room,"
At this point Judgo Itosalsky again
took occasion to warn him that his
testimony could bo used against him,
but Burns repeated that he appeared
voluntarily and that he fully appre
ciated what the effect of his testimony
"What did you se in the kitchen,
or do after you saw your partner and
"I tied a towel arouni her neck," he
Then Burns ran up stairs and took
what money and jewelry he could
find. He went outside, signalled to his
partner and they both left. Later they
'net in Harlem, at a place ho refused
j mention, and divided up tho money.
Ho didn't get as much as he expected,
said, because ho forgot the mat
tress in which wns J2,400.

"You know of your own knowledge
that this girl didn't kill Mrs. Hamel?"
"I do, I ought to." was the reply.
When Mr. Talley took Burna In
hand it was with tho attempt to show
that writing letters confessing to
crimes was ulniost a habit with him.
Ho admitted that in April of his year
He had written to District Attorney
Xwann that lie hod Information about
ho murder of Harry Cohen, called
Harry the Yot. a gambler whose death
nail, never been cleared up.
Hnd a Motive for I.ylnjr.
Ho -aid he had told detectives that
ho had pegged a bullet Into the Yot.
but that It was not the truth; that he
had an object in doing it
Burns had a lively little tilt with
.Jr. Talley when the prosecutor tried
to find out whero it was that Burns
had twice tried to commit su'ekl- by
his concession to Mr. Talley to "bring
it out In your ow n way."
A little later Mr. Talley took up his
lost conviction in Brooklyn, when
thero wt-ro live other IndlctmentH
aKa(nst him. Burns took a plea of
Kullty and said he was told that the
other IndlctmentH would bo quashed.
He had been convicted six times.
"You knew you could bo sent tip for
llfo a an habitual criminal?" asked
"T knew better," he tnappe'd back.
'I knew I could not."
Amazement on the part of tho prose
ulor. and Judge Un.ialsky asked him
why ho made such a posltlvo state
. "I had. only been convicted twice for
felonies," he explained. Tho law re
quires four convictions before sentence
as an habitual criminal.
"Well, ho is certainly right on the
law," commented the Judge with n
Mr. Talley attempted later to find
nut what his object was in telling Dis
trict Attorney Swann why ho said he
killed Harry th Yop over a division
of the fpolts of a burglary, but after
Hums had protested and explained
privately to Judge Itosalsky what nls
reasons were he was sustained In his
refusal to answer.
"Do you think It worse to admit
burglary than to admit murder?" he
"Why, yes, Of 'course," he replied.
"I might get twenty years for this and
then I would have It wrapped around
my neck for the others,"
"I take it that you mean .you are
familiar with the laws of commutation
and compensation?" asked Judge Ito
salsky with a smile at his precocious
"Yes," said Burns decidedly.
That waa the reason ho wouldn't
tell where he got 11,690 which he gave
his partner to buy a seven passenger
"On the ground that it would In
criminate you?" asked Judgo Rosal
sk "Yes," said Burns, chuckling.

' Put Out of Business Until
Dec. 30 at Least.
The license of the Italian Import
ing Company, 429 Washington street,
has been revoked by tho Pood Admin
istration for exceeding- the maximum
margins In canned tomatoes.
At a hearing before John Mitchell,
chairman of the Federal Food Board,
and Arthur Williams, Federal Food
Administrator for this city, it was
alleged that an examination of tho
company's books showed excess profit
of $2,717.82 between February and
September, 1018.. Mr. Cipolla, presi
dent of tho company, the record says,
conceded excess margins of ?1,S53.53.
Tho board recommended a suspension
of tho company's license for ono tVeek
with the alternative of contributing
canned goods to the amount of tho
excess marglas to tho Hod Cross.
"Cipolla offered to contribute $1,000
to tho Red Cross, which was declined,"
an official statement of the board says.
The board then recommended that the
company's license bo revoked. Ap
plication for renowal 'will bo consid

Louis F. Swift, president of Swift &

by the Federal Trade Commission that
the Ave great packers ot the country
were engaged In n combination to con

"In so far as we know," said Mr.
Swift, "and so far ns Swift & Co. Is

Sugar Itcfincr Tells of Kick
ing Corespondent Out of
SHOW GIRL'S BAH) TALE
She Declares Ilolbrook "Al
ways Acted Like n Gentlc
mnn Should" at Inn.
Charles M. Warner, head of the
Warner Sugar Refining Company and
a member of tho war time Bugar
Board, went on the witness stand be
fore Justice Scudder nnd n Jury In the
Supreme Court nt Mlnoola yostcrday
and added tho final touch of liveliness
to the evidence that 'has been pro
duced at tho trial of his son's divorce
action against Mrs. Louise G. Warner.
The elder Warner testified that
Charles Blaino Warner, his son, was
111 last June and compelled to rest in
a sanitarium. Mrs. Warner stayed at
tho Warner place at 'Kensington,
Great Nock, where tho elder Warner
always lived during the summer with
his son and daughter-in-law. The
younger Warner, he testified, occupied
his New York apartment in tho win
ters. While his son till was in the san
itarium, Mr. Warnor testified, hU
daughter-in-law telephoned and asked
him to go to dinner nt her home. He
promised ho would, but was held later
than he expected at a business con
ference in Xew Jersey. That made
it necessary for him, according to his
testimony, to call the younger Mrs.
Warner on tho telephone and tell her
he could not keep tho dinner engage
House Wan All Lit .tfp.
Circumstances were altered a UtUe
later and Mr. Warner said he did run
down to Kensington. Ho found the
house alight and his daughter-in-law
acting as hostess to a houso party of
constdernbli size. He looked around
for his son's wife, but she was "in the
shadows," ho said, and when she did
finally emerge whcio he could get a
good view of her sht was accompanied
by Harry F. Holbrook. a member of
the New York Athletic Club, who has
been named as corespondent.
"She came up to mo and Introduced
him." Mr. Warner testified. "I said,
Yes, I havo heard of him,' and
grabbed him hy tho throat, then
kicked him off tho porch nnd told him
Jhnever camo back again I wourd
"I left the houso soon after-that,"
Mr. Warner continued. "Later 1 saw
my daughter-in-law in my apartment
in Manhattan and told her I had heard
she sad spent tho day of the Bed
Crosa parade In Holbrook's apartment.
Sho denied It."
Thereafter Mr. Warner testified to
the part he had in the raid on an
apartment where Mrs. Warner. Jr.,
was found at Goshen Inn Labor Day.
He told of the apartment being broken
into and how he had found his daughter-in-law
and Holbrook there. It was
then, a, previously tes'ftfled, that Mrs.
Warner stepped up to tho father-in-law
and said. "I am sorry, daddy; don't
tell Blaine. Kiss me. daddy."
Miltior Bills Wrrc llrn-rr.
Soon af'er that. Mr. Warner testi
fied, his daughter-in-law wanted
money. While Charles Blaino Warner
was away, he said, he gave tho son's
wife $27,000. "I paid many of her
bills," he added, "and there were soma
pretty stiff ones for liquor." Under
cross-examination the elder Warner
said he objected to romeof the gowns
he had seen his daughter-in-law wear
In her home at Kensington, One in
particular, he said, was a transparent
costume, the same sho wore the night
of the raid nt Goshen Inn.
The other side of the. raid story camo
from Mrs. May Fickllng, 600 West
113th street, who insisted upon being
classed ns a showgirl and not a chorus
girl, because, she anld, she didn't dance.
She Just wore pretty clothes, cut decol
lete. Ex-Judge Isaac Oeland, Mr"
Warner's lawyer, wanted to know If
they weren't cut low, and she an
swered affirmatively. And then he
wanted to know if thoy wero cut high
"from tho bottom," and she said n.o
indeed, for she. wore a train.
Mrs. Fickllng Insisted Mrs. Warner
was In her room when tho raid was
made and that Holhrook was occupy
ing an adjoining room. "When the
door crashed," she testified, "Mrs.
Warner was standing In tho door near
tho bathroom, which divided it from
Holhrook's room." She said the ralder-i
rushed in nnd forced Mrs. Warner
Into the room with Holbrook and
closed the door behind them. She said
then tho elder Warner came Into the
room nnd Mrs. Warner told him she
was Innocent, and the father-in-law
said he knew It. but the case looked
bad. Mrs. Fickllng testified nhe never
had seen any Improper acts between
Mrs. Warner and the corespondent.
Ho always acted "like a gentleman
should," sho said.

Government In this city, ibut action

under observation in the Mattaewan
State Hospital for tho Insane. Ho'was

dictment. It was understood, however,
that In tho event of tho extradition
request Ixdng denied or It the man is
acquitted in the British courts ho Is

case finally disposed of.
