many's assumption of wrong-doing In the
Sussex case Is regarded s full and Anal,
so that the case will be closed when the
amount of Indemnity duo Injured Amer

As to principles, tho two nations arc In

It Is understood here that Berlin wilt
not answer the latest note from Secre
tary Lansing making plain that tho

of submarine warfare, without a con

in which .this country shall deal with
Great Britain. Tha acceptance of the
latest American note by Germany In si
lence will be taken here as the full acqui
escence of that government In the position
taken by the United States.
The State- Department Is disposed to
grant n reasonable tlmo for Germany's an
nounced abandonment of objectionable
"submarine methods to become effective.
In accepting the German assurances as
made in good faith, officials point out
that perhaps ten days or two-weeks may
be necessary, to get the changed ordera to
all German submarine commanders. Grant
ed that Die new ordera were Issued May
4, the date of the German note. It wou'd
therefore bo possible that not all com
manders have as yet been apprised of the
changed rules. This observation was made
las a reasonable explanation of reports
of continued submarine activity. In some
Instances against neutral vessels. But
officials made It vcry'plaln that a very fow
days more would be considered as com
pleting a reasonable time within which
Germany could establish the good faith
of her promises.

ing from the charge" made on Tuesday
night by Isaiiore Stern, member of tho
Legislature from the 2d District.
Mr. Ball, speaking for the Governor,
said that the Governo. nlmself had ex

Failure of Parisnioner to "Keep

Rector Asserts, Led to Op
position in Vestry
"My experience as Coronbr has' con
vinced me that about one-hnlf of our hos

down. They arc unfit for the demands
made upon them and for which they wcro
built. Their management Is awful. Young

tholr treatment of patients and visitors.
If about one-half of thece Institutions were
done away with it would be better for tho
city In my opinion.".
Coroner William It. Knight, Jr., made
the foregoing statement this morning In
discussing the death of Frank Horvath,
3 years old, of 1129 North Bodlne street,
who died In tho Roosevelt Hospital last
night. Tho child wan struck by an auto
mobile of tho Kerr Salt Company while
playing In the street at Germantown and
Olrard avenues. The driver, William Mc
ISlwcc, of 3238 Fltwater street, placed
tho little, fellow on the car and rushed
him to tho Roosovelt Hospital. Thence
he wan taken In the automobile to the
Medico-Chlrurglcal Hospital for X-ray
examination. Although this treatment re
vealed a fracture of the Hkull ' which
caused death" within n few hours the hos
pital authorities permitted the child's re
moval In the machine to the Roosevelt
Hospital. His death occurred at 11.30
o'clock, making the 47th fatality caused
by nutomobllcs since the beginning of tho
year. ; . - '
"HAD THEY NO AMBULANCE?"
"I will summon tho authorities "of both
these hospitals to explain their action In
this caBe," declared Coroner Ivnlght. "I
want to know why It was necessary for
the Roosevelt Hospital to send that child,
whom they know to be seriously hurt, all
the way to the Medico-Chlrurglcal Hos
pital In an automobile. Had they no am
bulance? Or didn't they have an X-ray
outfit of 'their own? I want the Medico
Chlrurglcal Hospital authorities to ex

the dangerous character of the child's In

Dr. Frank E. Boston, Interne at the

when Frank- Horvath was brought to the
Institution last night, defends the course
pursued. "The child was brou." ht In about

A shattered romance between two of
the Rev. George Chalmers Richmond's
parishioners was tho cause of his arrest
on th rhnrgo of using the malls with In
tent to defraud.
The man In the case was E. Howard
NVunier, who laid before the postal au
thorities the letters that resulted In the
arrest of the rector. The grl w'as" the sis
ter of William Hnmlfton, a lay render In"
Ht. John's Episcopal Church, the church
from which Mr. Richmond was deposed.
N'eumcr came to this city nfter his dis
charge from Sing Sing several years ago.
The rlorgyman espoused his cause. Intro
duced Ncumer to bin parishioners as a
"friend from New York," disclosing his
real Identity to but. two persons, one of
whom was Hamilton.
Mr. Richmond asked nothing from the
man, according to Information Given out
by him this morning, except adherence to
Richmond's advice, for two years, among
which ndmonltlons was one nsklng that
he keep away from girls, who had been the
cause of his being sent to prison.
Neumcr, according to the former rector,
was sent to Siifg "Sing for bigamy.-"
("Keep way from, the girls Jn my par
iah," Mr. Richmond said he warned Neu
mer. "They nre nfter a man with money
and you have none."
This was shortly after Neumer had ob
tained employment at the Pennsylvania
Hospital through tho efforts of Mr. Rich
mond. ! . .
Ncunler, however, nccordlng to' Mr.
Richmond, started a courtship with Ham
ilton's Bister, to whom the rector referred
as "a homely girl."
Although Hamilton knew of the past
career of Neumer he made no effort ,to
keep the" suitor away from his sister, ac
cording to Noumer's own testimony at
the ecclesiastical trial of Mr. Richmond.
Neumer succumhed to the wiles of an
other girl and "jilted" Hamilton's sister,
with the result that Hamilton, spurred
by family pride, called him a "convict."
This wns thobeglnnlng of the factional
lights that later turned St. John's Into a
battleground and resulted In the removal
of Mr. Richmond, The former rector
remonstrntcd'Wlth Hamilton and tho lat
ter tendered hla resignation to Bishop
Rhlnclander, Ignoring Mr. Richmond. This
precipitated a. fight In the vestry and
created. an opposition to" Mr, Richmond
within hla own congregation.
It whsvtlie fact that Neumer, a man
whom Mr. Richmond claims to have be
friended, had Joined the ranks of his
enemies., that caused Mr. Richmond to
grow bitter today, when discussing his
arrest. Had it not been for Neumer
there would havo been no split In the
vestry and yesterday's arrest would not
have come to pass, Mr. Richmond con
tended. . r
In blaming his enemies In the Episcopal
Church for causing- his arrest the. deposed
rector Intimated connivance between ad
visers of the men who caused his arrest
and members of the. "curbstone vestry"'

LUKE MEEKINS FREED;
POLICE BEGIN ALL OVER
Father of Murdered Boy De
clared Not. Guilty No
.. New Qlue Found
Luke Meeklns went free this morning,
officially cleared of suspicion In the mur
der of his son, Richard, whose body was
found more than a week ago on the farm
of Judson Self, at 70th street and Botanlo
avenue, after .a search dating from No
vember 2J last when the boy disappeared
from'hls home, 2,49 ,SqUth,'6lBt street.
With the discharge ortha elder Meek
Ins, which w'as-effe(fted''atle a brief ar
raignment before' Tiiagrstfaf a Pennock In
Central Station, the Meeklns mystory re
assumefl its perplexing Obscurity and tho
detectives' declare that all the available
clues have been exHauste'd' "without suc
Meeklns,. who -was alrrested last Satur
day at his home, 6821 Yocum street, waa
brought into the hearing room early. He
sat beside his counsel, David Rahllly, and
seemed dazed by his experience. His was
the first case called.
George Timlin., tha detective, who haa
led the Investigation since the search for
Richard Meeklns began, was the only
witness heard, He testified that Meeklns
had been identified by two farmhands as
a man they had seen hanging around the,
spot where the boy's body subsequently
was discovered. Since making the arrest,
Timlin declared, a thorough Investiga
tion of Meeklns' movements had been
made, with the result that the Detective
Bureau was convinced that he had noth
ing to do with tho death of the boy. .
Magistrate Pennock' thereupon y dis
charged Meeklns, who immediately left
the hearing room with his counsel. In
the corridor he shook hands wiUi Timlin
nnd expressed himself as "glad to get
out." He tjten departed for tho Yocum
street address, which Is the home of his
father. Thomas J. Meeklns, a locomotive
engineer on the, Baltimore .and Ohio Rail
road. Thomas Meeklns nnd other members of
the family are angered' at what they con
sider the unwarranted arrest of the dead
boy's father, and have not abandoned
their determination to Institute proceed
ings against the detectives for false ar
rest. A conference of Meeklns' relatives
will be held this week to decide whether
this step .shall be taken.
' The prosecution of the search for the
slayer will not be abandoned, Timlin as
jsertB. He declared today that the In
vestigators are now about where they
.started, In spite of their' activity In run-
ping out every available clue. Inquiry In
the nelgnoornooa ot tne AteeKins home
.will "be maintained, and every effort ex
pended In the hope that the baffling case
inajr be solved.
