MURDER SUSPECTS WIFE WITHSTANDS GRILLING BY POLICE - Mrs. Lively Fails to Give Clue to Whereabouts of Miss ing Nogro DECLARES SHE IS SAFER INSIDE JAIL THAN OUT The xvito of Louis Lively, sought for the murder of scvon-yonr-old Matilda ItiKsso, of Moorestown, N. J., wns sub jected to n severe cro"s-flre of questions In her cell nt tho Mt. Holly Jail today, but detectives got little information. JShe talked freely of the movement of herself and her fugitive hu'band before tho disappearance of 'the little ltusso girl from her homo adjoining the Lively house. But the woman said nothing which betrayed the knowledge the au- thnrlMpa Holtnvn nlin 1 wltlitinMlntr In connection with the munlcr and burin 1 1 nf thn ohiM i th nwwnf u'licnuiksmie of her husband, who is a Nogro. Shn declared Klin felt better nssiireH nf safety In hor cell than if she were nt liberty, because of the public anger shown since the child's body, with throat and abdomen slashed, was dis covered in a grave of sand in the celjar of the Lively home. According to bits of statements nnd admissions, later pieced together by the detectives who grilled Mrs. Lively, the information she' has given is as fol lows: "On May 28 I took my son, Robert, to Philadelphia nnd placed him with relatives. Then I went to work nt Brldgeton, N. J., in the canneries, and woked there until June 5, whn my husband came to Brldgeton to eee me. Denies Crime Knowledge "We both then went to Swalnton. three miles from Cape May Court House, where we visited my mother. On June 7 my husband wont back to Moores town. I saw him in Moorestown June 10. "I know nothing nbout this crime. I would in no way have my house con nected with It if I could have prevented it." Llvcly's wife displays little or no nervousness. She is cnlm and con verses at will concerning everything but the crime of which her husband is sus pocterl. Cnt? omes '"ho I "llrectthe' Hills Parker, chief of the Burlington tlve the fugitive is in Pennsylvania, but he would not hint at tho approximate spot in which bo believed Lively ,(q be hiding. Prosecutor Kel&ey, of Burlington County, declared that speedy justice would be meted out to the slayer of the Russo child in the event of his capture.! Telegrams would be Immediately dis patched to the Grand Jurors. The clerk of the court has been roeal'ed from his vacation nt Sae Girt, and Justice Kallseh has been notified to be prepared for Immediate summons lo begin tho trial of the child's slayer, the minute he is captured. Promises "Jersey Justice" "Wo have yet. to capture the man and then we will show how fast New Jersev justice can be meted out," said Mr. kelsey. , "Th cWoIverton act states thnt a man guilty of murder who confesses his guilt can be sentenced to life Im prisonment only. I hope to get nround this by refusing un admission of guilt in this case. "There will be no life imnrlsonmont for r the man who committed tnis ternoief crime. We have two difficult problems, j.nP: the revolver' was In my hand to deal with. Ono Is that the man re- nmI Josephine was., falling to the side mnins uncaptured. The other is the at- waj. Ti,en t fan' tltude with which the newspapers have taken in dealing with this case, which has resulted in public feeling that Indi cates lynch law might be tried. "If lynch law Is established, it will defeat the sends of justice because you ncannot tell how far it would be car ried." From detectives it was learned tboti the fugitive was committed to the New Jersey state rrison in yeioDor, win. for larceny and entry in Cape May County. Hcwns released In 1002. In 101-1 Lively wns arrested for car rying concealed deadly weapons and was sentenced. He was released in 1015. It wus nlso said ho had served a sentence in the Eastern Penitcutiary in this city, but this could uot be con firmed. Suspects Prove Identity Three suspects were arrested yester day. One is being detained nt Norris town, hut-probably will be released. The others were arrested wore James Lovcn, who was picked up in Hunting Park, and told a plausible story, nnd Joseph Dukes, who wub cleared of sus picion toda$ in Central Police Court before Magistrate Renshaw. Dukes gave a convincing tale of his nrrlval here on a freight train from .New York. He said red spots on his shirw were pumt martin, not uioou, .mini--trato Renshaw gavo him three months In tho House of Correction on a charge of vagrancy. Neighborhood Aroused So hot Is the Indignation roused by the crime thnt the Now Jersey authori ties will rush Lively, If he Is captured, to tho Jallat Mount Hollv, In order to prevent a lynching. Countn De tective Parker sold that, while tho fiOO volunteer sleuths who are search ing tho countryside for the fugitive have made no threats, their demeanor leads him to believe that there may be trouble' If tho man Is brought to Moorestown. Even the Negroes in Jhnt town are banded together In the search and repre sentatives of the race have openly stated that his capture by any of his owu color will end in his death. Chief of Police Brudshaw, of Moores Uwn, w)io has been working night and day sinco the murder was discovered, going virtually without sleep, has taken every precaution possible against auj show of violence, however. The funeral services for tho child wero held yesterday In the Churchy of Our Lady of Good Counsel, Mooestowh. Tho church was crowded.

The Porter peace reholutlon, the House .vendon of the Knox resolution, undoubtedly will pass this afternoon ns scheduled. It differs from tho Senate resolution In hovcrnl respects, the most important of which is that It merely declnrcs a state of .peare to exist while thn Senate reso lution repeals the declaration of war. Tho House leaders profess that their version is more ugreeablc to the Ad ministration than the Senate version The Administration declares that It Is keeping its hands off. The Scnnte, jeal ous of Its prerogatives, resents the loer House's attempt to tinker with foreign relations. The prospects thus are for a long delay in conference be tween the two bodies at the end of which a formula may be found which will meet the difficulties of a complex situation. The opinion Is growing here that everybody except a few irrcconc!lnb1ct will be .well content to have the peace resolution tied up in conference until the Administration can see inoro clearly than It does today what will be the next step after peace Is formnll de clared.
