S i Police Think Man Who Shot Condon at the Adel phia Was "Gentleman iThief," But Coroner's Agents Are Working on New Theory. i Coroner's Detective Frank Paul an. Bounced -this morning that clues found IJn New Tork have led him to believe the man who shot Morris a. Condon In the Adelphla Hotel Wednosday night nnd then ended his own life rather than kill another man In his dash for liberty, had other motives than burglary when he ntered tho Condon apartment. An In vestigation Is being mado In New York Along these lines. On tho other hand, City Hall detec tives announced this morning that they believed tho mnn was a "gentleman burglar" who went in ttin hnM nn1i.lv for robbery. They base their opinion upon Information found at 1C03 Race street, where It has been learned the man had a room for two weeks before tho tragedy. Detectivo Paul says ho will not be satis fled with this theory until tho New York clues have been run down. It Is bcllovcd that tho man worked ns an nsslstant electrician at tho Palace Theatre there. Ho left suddenly, saying ho had nn of fer in Buffalo, nnd tho authorities of that city are wow trying to learn whether such a man arrived In Buffalo. Mr. Paul believes the Buffalo story was n 'fako" and that tho mnn then enmofto Philadel phia. WHO WAS COPELLO? Foul snys that the Identification of tho picture of tho dead man by Mrs. John O. Cope, of the Race street address, Is Undoubtedly correct. Mrs. Cope's hus band went to headquarters nnd posi tively Identified the man ns Fritz Co pollo, who registered as a lodger at her house on November 10. Mrs,' Copo, who Is 111 In bed, when shown the picture also Identified the man. Ho registered under tho namo of Copclto, nnd the writing on tho register Is Identical with that on pieces of paper found In the man's pockets. But. as Paul points out, the mere naming of tho man as ''Copello" does not clear up tho mystery. That the man was a burglar of the common type, Paul does not believe. He learned In New York that he was well known on Broadway and was looked upon ns a. well-to-do and well-dressed man In the restaurants and theatres he frequented around Broadway and 47th treet. Nothing has been found to prove that the notes found In the man's pockets, leading to the belief that ho was a no bleman, were forged. Tho fact that ho bad an Italian name proves nothing. It Is raid, for many Austrians from tho sec tion in which Copello Is supposed to have lived have Italian names. Headquarters Detectives Emanuel and Gioneitl believe that tho BUnman had been working In hotels In Now York until tho police wore toot hot on his trail. Then he came to this city. He rover left his room until afternoon, some times not until after 3 o'clock. His clothes were of the beat material nnd he had little trouble In passing himself off as a guest at crowded hotels. From the. Information In their posses sion the police now bellovo the man had had poor luck in this city. They think ho went Into tho upper floors of tho Adelphla intent on burglnry, nnd not a hold-up; that lie waa unable to gain admittance to any of the rooms or found nothing of value, and that, becoming desperate, he resolved upon a hold-up to get money. This theory Is borne out by the fact that not a single piece of United States money was found in his clothing when Jie was Kearchcd. Tho few coins of small denominations he had were Mexlcnn. There was nothing else of value in his pockets. No money or valuables were found in his room. Mrs. Cope Is convalescing from the ef fects of a recent operation. She was un able to go to City Hall, or to the Morguo to view the body, so detectives took a pho tograph of tho dead man to her home and she positively Identified It ns that of the man who registered under tho name ofp Copello, This Is the name found on slips of foreign tracing papers in the suicide's clothing. Further Identification was made by means of the laundry marks on tho col lar worn by the suicide tho night of the shooting. Collars found In his suitcase at the Itace street room bore similar marks. Detectives took the suitcase to City Hall and carefully examined It. They then de clared their belief that Copello was a well dressed and nervy hotel burglar, made desperate by a number of failures. KNOWN IN NEW YORK AS "OEOnaE." Coroner's Detective Frank Paul has re turned frdm New York, where ho- ob tained several clues to the identity of the suicide. He found that the man was known In the restaurant Ufa about 4?th street and Broadway as "George." Nothing of hla occupation or movements in that city was known by attaches of the restaurants. Inspector Faurot, head of the New York detectives, has several men at work on the. cue today, trying to clear up the New iTork end of it. Coroner's Detective Paul and tho detectives hers feel that the Philadelphia end of the cats is settled with the Identification. Examination of the Bertlllon and linger print records at New York Is proceeding. So far It has developed nothing. Apparently Copello was a clever thief and had eluded all the efforts of the police to trap him. His picture is not In the New York rogues' gallery, De tective Paul today declared that In his opinion the man was "a Raffles." TOLp COPE HE "WAS A COUNT. "He was well known along Broadway," nald the detective. "Men who- had met him told me he was known as a good sport, generally well supplied with money, always dressed In the best of clothing end with no visible means of support." According to the story told by Cope, the lodging house proprietor, the man came to his house at 3 o'clock on the after noon of November 20 and registered as Frit Copello. He told Cope ha was an Austrian count Cope says ho spoke little English. He said he was an eleo trieian and had been out of -work for aome time. The man usually slept until 1 o'elock in the afternoon and remained out late at night. The Btaurant of the Austrian Consul at New York, that the papers found on the, body of the suicide indicating that ha waa an Austrian of noble birth and a former officer In the army ot inai coun try had bssn forged serve to complicate wither than to clear the case, in the opin ion of detectives. The Austrian Consul declared that no ofliear had been cashiered from tne army at bis nattve lu nfi Mince IMS. He declared that from the PMMrf 'ound " 0Mf ot the sutatfa ha wouM muf the naa bfc4 ( carried tho records Is puzzling to tho de tectives. Condon is stilt nt the Jefferson Hospital. Hli wife Is nt the Adelphla. So far neither has ndtled nnythlng to tlicstnte incuts mnde the day after the shooting. Tho condition of the wounded mnn Is still critical. Detectives Emmnnuel and Olunettl are Utoplng In close touch with the hospital, so that they may make an attempt lo get another stntement from him should ho be In immediate danger of death. COW HELD FOR VAGRANCY Bossy Arrested While Strolling About Crowded City Streets. A docile Holstcln was arrested last night by Policeman McKenna and tnken to the 20th nnd Berks streets station on a charge of vagrancy. Until tho owner ap pears and Identifies the cow the night shift at the station will have fresh milk with their midnight lunch.

There were protests against the action of tho committee In accepting tho resignation, but they were voted down. One member took the stand that Mrs. Thomas was of no further uso to the society, aB she had pledged herself to do no other work until sho had found re lief for tho unemployed. "Wo cannot afford to have a president who Is unwill ing to fight for the cause," tho member said. "Our fight is for suffrage."

Tho vote was EG to 32, nnd It was only after a long debate It was decided to rent tho rooms to tho League. Joseph T. Kinsley, In urging the club rent tho rooms to tho League, said: "The State Committee, as a result of the small vote polled In the city nt the last election. Is of tho thought much better results could be obtained for tho Mayoralty If the city was hotter organized." Thomas T. Nelson, Snmuol J.

"Senator Crow said ho had no candidate himself but politicians today regard his statement as a reflection of the views of Senator Penrose, and as a slap at the Vares. Sen ator Varo has said If Wilson, who has not as yet formally announced his candi dacy, is a candidate for tho position he will support him. "Tho country districts should be recog nized with the Speakership," said Sen ator Crow. "My reasons for thinking so are: Philadelphia has the Governor elect nnd Senator Penrose; Allegheny County has tho President pro tern, of tha senate, senator Kline, and had the-) apeauersmp last session In George B. 'Alter; but the most Important consider ation this time Is that the Republican ticket was elected safely by the vote of the country districts, and the ticket would have beenjust as successful with out the votes of Philadelphia and Alle gheny Counties," EDELE CD.

GRIFFITH Chairman Tourlni Information Committee Philadelphia Automobile Club. There Is probably no trip in tho neigh borhood of Philadelphia which appeals to visitors as well ns to Philadelphia motorists more than that to Valley Forge. It Is not generally known that the coun try between Philadelphia and Valley Forgo on both sides of tho Schuylkill contains landmarks of Revolutionary history second In Importance only to Valley Forge Itself. It is hard to realize while traveling over the good ronds which are to be found nil through this district that in tho early days It was a serious matter lo get from Philadelphia to Valley Forge, rho roads were scarcely what could now bo called "dirt roads," and were until for travel, except on horseback, during six months of the year. A more or less historic" routo Is that which runs through the Park and out Belmont nvenue to Montgomery ave nue. Montgomery nveium lm,i ritr,,. close to the line of the Old Oulph road, which It finally joins at the dulph. It j or 'theProm TlUn 'rolT.thW n cssnry Is to take tho right fork beyond r , :,, ...-ici. v-iuu hi iinvenorci, but this road Is not mncadamlzcd throughout. Tho Gulph. formerly known ns Gulph Mills, was the plnco whore the powder was made for the Revolutionary army, nnd the site Is marked by a stone erect ed by tho Daughters of the American Revolution. The Gulph Itself is nn ex ceedingly plcturesquo cleft In the hills, nnd In New England would be called a notch. Running through this the lino goes tho Identical old Revolutionary road past tho King of .Prussia inn nnd through tho village of Port Kennedy to Valley Forgo Park. Immediately after leaving Port Kennedy, monuments nro to be scon In every direction marking tho location of dlfforent regiments, bri gades, redoubts, etc. Vnllcy Forge Park Itself Is laid out in a series of roads, zigzagging up the hill and following tho line of the old earth works. This can be clearly seen upon tho map. The headquarters of General Washing ton Is a building of greater antiquity than nny other In the neighborhood, nnd nmong othor curiosities there Is a cov ered passage underground leading from the building to the river, nnd used in early days to obtain water from the river in case of siege by the Indians. Tho return from Valley Forge should be made back to Port Kennedy, thero crossing tho river through tho village ot Audubon, near which Is the residence of wiai inmous naturalist. The village Is ancient and quaint. Continuing through iiuuuuun one reacues mo nttlo settle ment of Jefforsonvllle, whero the old Rldgo rood or Reading pike Is Joined. This runs through the thriving town of Norrlstown directly to Philadelphia by way of Rldgo avenue. It Is to be noted that on a hill on the loft of tho rood close to City Line is a historic marker In the form of a stone pyramid commemorating a small combat. In this neighborhood, between the monu ment and Wlssiihlckon Creek, another skirmish was fought. The Ridge road passes through upper Roxborough and the road surface becomes frankly bad, being of antique cobble stones of tho most villainous kind. Considering the amount of travel over this road, nnd that It Is the shortest way Into town from the Schuylkill Valley towns. It seems to me that the least that could bo dono would be to surface this road with split granite blocks, similar to those on the hump on Broad street, or else with brick. If one wishes to avoid this stone block, a turn to the left may De maae at tne little village of Barren Hill, and the run back to town made through Chestnut Hill, where tha roads are excellent. The village of Barren Hill, by the way, boasted, up to a few years ago, a chdrch, and a very ugly church It was, probably tne largest revolutionary cnurch In this part of tho country. The furniture dated from the same period, and in It was a table which was used as an operating table In the church itself after the battle of Germantown. Unfortunately the old building burned down, and the present curious structure is taking Its place. 600 IDLE MEN PUT TO WORK Director Cooke Utilizes Funds Avail able for Highway Improvement.

Finger rings NAVAL SERYIGE HANDICAPPED BY PROMOTION RULE Need of Increased Number of Officers Above Rank of Junior Lieutenant Shown by Existing Conditions. The number of naval "dicers above tho tank of Junior lieutenant should be In creased, according to nnvnl men hete today. Under tho law of 1SDD prescribing tho numerical limit of oniccrs, naval olll cers aro frequently required to perform tho duti?s of men of higher rank because of failure of tho law to provide for tho increnso in me navy slnco 1899. Although tho officers under this law perform duties above tholr rank, their promotion Is seriously handicapped. It Is said under the present distribution of grades tho Junior lieutenants of tho class of ID15 cannot hopo to reach tho tank of lieutenant commander In less than 40 yenrs. At thnt tlmo they will bo near tho statutory retirement age of 62. "Fully two-thirds of the ofllcero on the active lists uro Junior lleiicnnnts and en signs. Tho Annapolis classes have aver aged about 175 men for tho last 10 years. During thnt tlmo promotions hnvo been made from tho rank of Junior lieutenant to lieutenant nt tho rato of 10 n year. This Is because tho law regulating tho number of higher officers prevents nn officer from being ndvanced to tho rank to which his offlclal duties entitle him," nn officer said. At the present tlmo n naval committee consisting of Rear Admltnl Victor Bluo, chief of the Bureau of Navigation; As sistant Secretary of tho Navy Roosovelt and Naval Constructor Taylor aro con sidering the advisability of Increasing tho number of higher officers. "Tho personnel of tho navy in both the enlisted men and tho commissioned officers should bo based on tho effcctlvo tonnage, of tho wnrshlps on tho navy list," ono of tho naval exports said. "The commissioned personnel Bhould bo dis tributed In tho various grades in propor tions which oxperlonco has shown to bn desirable. This would Increase tho grades above lieutenant commander slightly. Tho grades of lieutenant commander nnd lieutenant would bo greatly Increased. "It Is desirable to promote officers after thoy havo sorved a certain length of tlmo In each grado. The tlmo would be de termined by tho number of offlcers and the average age of tho officers in the grade." Under tho law there are 18 rear ad mirals, 70 captains, 112 commanders, 200 lieutenant commanders and 330 lieuten ants In the navy. Tho number of Junior lieutenants nnd ensigns Is unl' llted. Pro motions can come only from death, resig nation or the "plucking" of a superior officer. No provision Is mado for tho nat ural expansion of the navy, It Is said. This Is considered a serious handicap to the service, because an officer will almost reach the retiring age before he has ad vanced abovo the grade of Junior lieu tenant. In his annual report, mado publlo yesterday. Rear Admlrn,! Bluo said tho possibilities nro that all officers fit for service will be ensigns and Junior lleu tennnts. Tho high officers would only be officers that had recently stepped up from the rank of worn-out Junior lieutenants, and would bo almost ready to retire. Rear Admiral Blue believes that Con gress will remedy the situation, and urges that speedy action bo taken. "About 60 per cent, of the lieutenants aro now performing duties that should be performed by lieutenant commanders," ho says, "whllo only about 10 per cent, nro performing watch duty, which should be the normal duty of the grade. "The recent Mexlcnn situation created an emergency that made great demands upon the commissioned personnel.
