$3000 Fine Remitted Negro Who Plotted Abduction of
Nurse and Dug Grave for Selected Victim May
Go to Pittsburgh
Is he coming back?
Over the telephone, in homes, stores and
en the streets of Merchantvllle, N. J., this
question was being asked today when It be
came generally known that Francis Lingo,
feared by many residents of South Jersey,
would soon be free again. Many of Mer-
chantvllle's prominent citizens were children
. and youths at the time that Lingo, who Is a
I negro, was convicted of scheming to kidnap
I Kathertne V. Berry, a young nurse attached
! to tho Howard Hospital, of this city.
But Lingo is not coming back to Mer-
, chantvllle. He is going to Pittsburgh.
When he leaves his cell he will take along
I a Bible. Since Billy Sunday conducted his
, revival campaign at Trenton Lingo has
I become a convert. His reformation, ac
I cording to his statement, Is due to teach
Ires he has received from different clergy
The New Jersey Board of Pardons yes
terday remitted the $3000 fine which was
Imposed upon Lingo In 1897, when he was
-ecnler.ced to a 20-year term. His 20-year
Gtntence with good behavior expired two
years ago.
From the time that Lingo was arrested
after he had planned to kill the young

Before his arrest on the attempted kid
napping charge he was arrested for the
Murder of a young woman. He was con
demned to die. Later he was discharged
after & new trial was granted. Later he
was arreste4 for another murder, but re

The release of Lingo has stirred up the

Bill Through Error, Says
Senator Gets Yard Back
In Items
' WASHINGTON, Juty IB. Without de
bate, tho Senate has restored tho Phila
delphia Navy Yard as ono of tho four Gov
ernment yards on, which $6,000,000 Is to bo
expended . for equipment for battleship
Senator Penrose explained that tho Phila
delphia yard was eliminated from tho
IIouso bill by a "typographical error," and
no objection was mado to Its restoration.
At tho samo tlmo Senator Pcnroso had tho
ball amended to Include Philadelphia

This was tho first appearance of Senator
Penroso In tho Senate In nearly two months.
Ho quickly ncted upon tho protests of work
men of I-caguo Island and tho Philadelphia
Chamber of Commerce nnd had both amend
ments made. This action places Philadel
phia on an equality with other ports.
Boforotho Senate reached that section
of tho bill Senator Penrose found tho rea
son for tho elimination of Philadelphia iu
a "typographical error." Ho said:
"Since returning to Washington, I have
conferred with Senator Henry Cabot Lodge,
of Massachusetts, and ho Informs mo that
there was no Intention to drop Philadel
phia. Tho newspapers took It up and mada
a good hullabaloo over It, saying that Phila
delphia had been elimInatcd"becauso I was
not here to attend meetings of the Naval
Affairs Committee when the bill was being
framed. There Is nothing to that."
Senator Edwin II. Vare, when told last
night of Senator Penrose's explanation of
the manner in which tho Philadelphia Navy
Yard was excluded from the shipbuilding
bill, declared sarcastically:
"I don't seo where the 'typographical
error" came In. That does pot correspond
with what Senator Polndexter said when
wo learned tho navy yard hero had not
been Included with the other ones. Ho
said that It was through his being on the
job that Puget Sound was included In the
list, and he said if there had been a rep
resentative of the Philadelphia Navy Yard
there at .tho time tho Senate committee
considered tho bill It , would havo been in
cluded with tho others." t

"I thought Mr. Steele was a Christian
gentleman," he nsscrted, "and would act
according to tho law when it wns simply
called to his attention. Christian gentle
men always respect the law. I have done
this thing In hundreds of other cases sent
letters to ministers calling their attention to
violations of tho law and was thanked most
heartily for tho efforts I put forth. But
Mr. Steele must run right away to the
nowspapers and get some publicity for hla
Doctor Mutchler said the Lord's Day

ness," that It simply investigated and placed
its facts before tho proper authorities,
"upon whom the responsibility for proper
action rested."
