Maj. McMurtey and Bacon were leaving the house after a meeting when c wom-in living near the Mor ris mansion telephoned that it was being robbed. They armed themselves and sped to the scene, ?\fter a search of the upper floors had revealed nothing, they crept down to tbe cel lar and soon heard the thieves mov ing about. At Maj. M'Murtey's call to "sur render," one of the men fired, the bullet passing through the officer's left arm. He and Bacon threw them selves to the floor and shot at the spurts of flame from the thieves' weapons. Finally their opponents' fusili-de was silenced, but not before Bacon's neck was pierced. Lights were procured and revealed a man identi fied as Anthony Fiorenzo, one of the burslars. lying dead and the other, Giovanni Norco. dying,. Bacon was taken to Greenwich Hospital, but Maj.

IN 1DDLE WEST Lowden and Wood Boom ers Hold Attention of Prairie States. MAY INVADE NEW YORK Supporters of Illinois Gov ernor Expect Real Issue With Harding. B? ? **1??T I nrrespnaadraal. C*hleago. Feb. 15. ?I'olltlcal ma neuvers In the Central West are at present 76 per cent Republican. The remaining 25 per cent belongs lo the women's section of, tbe Dem ocratic party, which apparently Is | the only live fora-e In the rival or- I Kanlxation. Attorney General A. j Mitchell I'almcr created a mild stir here while spending a few' hours in j the city, but his practical disclaim er of any design on the Demo cratic nomination dampened the enthusiasm of the faithful. Ills at titude was taken to indicate that Democratic aaplrants for White House honors will remain quiescent until President Wilson gives some indication as to his own personal relation with the future interests of the party. The preconvention campaign in the prairie States is practically con fined to the activities of the Low den and Wood boomers. Managcra of each claim everything and con cede nothing. The result of the Oklahoma State convention is con sidered by many aa showing the recession of the Wood movement, but no one can get that Impres sion In talking with Col. William C. Proctor, who is conducting the general's campaign. Col. Proctor points to gains in every direction, and he maintains that uninstrua-ted delegations, as was the case in Oklahoma, suit his committee as well as if Instructions were down in black and white for his candi dates. \\ <>..?? Faareea Issar It is a study In political science to compare the activities of the two committees. As becomes a man on horseback, the Wood manage ment is forcine the Issue on every hand. Just now It is contemplating throwing down the gage of battle to the governor of Illinois in his own State. This will be decided next week, and no one would be surprised were Wood's name to go on the primary ballot April 13. ?Jen. Wood will also Invade Sen ator Harding's preserves, although 'he will not present a slate of dele gates. He will simply permit the Ohio voters to express their pref erence, and if he should run a good second he will naturally claim the delegation in the convention should Senator Harding fail of nomination. These tactic? will be observed in other States, although an out-and out fight will be conducted in the Slate? where no favorite sons fig ure. Gossip among Republican leaders is to the effect that the Wood management will even in vado New York, seeking to obtain an instructed delegation. In Michigan no holds will be barred between the candidates, and the same will hold true in Indiana. At present Wood * partisans claim that the general is leading Ne braska, Kansas and Minnesota, not to mention North Dakota. Colorado, South Dakota and Oregon. There ia no intention just now to pick a fight with Hiram Johnson in Cali fornia unless the progressive Sena tor should invade some of Wood'? own sacred precincts. Fight Sky ot HlK.a.la. On account of the peculiar situa tion in Wisconsin all Republican candidates have so far fought shy of that 6tate. There is the usual battle on in that bailiwick between Senator i.a Follette'? followers and the stalwarts, a legacy from the early days of La Follettes career. Senator Lenroot is trying to steer clear of entangling alliances which he may or may not be able to do, aa he expects to be re-elected Sena tor, while Governor Phillips would not be adverse to becoming a Vice Presidential candidate. Wood claims to have a sure lead in Minnesota, but there again the nonpartlsan party ha? muddled the political waters. That Townley might be strong enough to dictate the Repub lican State ticket would not be sur prising. In which case there would be a merry mlx-up in the Presiden tial field.

FEDERAL SHIPS TO STAY "DRY" SAYS SHEPPARD Senator Who "Saharaized' DC. Takes Issue With Payne. SCORES SHIPPING HEAD Declares Prohibition Law Won't Hurt Maritime Business. Senator Morris fihrppard. of Texa?. moving force in the Senate for Con stitutional prohibition, said last night that be takes Issue with John Bar ton Payne, chairman of the Shipping Board, on the latter'* contention that the American government-operated merchant marine cannot compete with foreign lines because our ship? can [not sell intoxicant?. , | "I think further trial of the gov ernment ships will show that Judge Payne's contention that dry Amer ican ships cannot compete with for eign linea equipped with bars, will be found incorrect. **I believe Americans will prefer to*' travel on the ships operated by the board, where they will not encoutner the nuisance? produced by the sale of intoxicant?, and will not have to take passage with drunkards. The Shipping Board should go ahead and operate ships without bars." ? a la lead Act Aided 1 Irrisi?.. Chairman Payne recently an nounced that he believed it neces sary to dispose of the great fleet of ships now operated, and that one of the prime factors In In fluencing this decision of the Ship ping Board was the fact that un der the constitutional prohibition amendment it would be impossible tc sell liquor on government ships. He further stated that when these ships were sold, and had passed permanently into private control it would be within the dis cretion of the owners whether they would be allowed to carry bars. In this connection It is known that several ships, one of them the "Manchuria." formerly operated by the board, have made trips out of American jaorts with supplies of In? toxicants. It is noi unlikely that Congress, convinced that an inequality exists in this respect, may take action tu prevent ships of foreign registry entering American ports ? un liquor on board. It is considered probable that dry members of Congress shortly will niaive for an amendment to the Vol uti ad prohibition enforcement act. which would make it unlawful for f?.ra lun ships to enter our port? with intoxicants on board. An attempt was recently made by Interrai revenue agent? to bring Hal* i-i-ue to the fore for a decision, when government officers went on board an Italian liner arriving in New York and seised the stocks of liquor car ried. A complaint was filed by offi cers of the vessel with the Italian consul, who look the matter up with I Treasury oflielals here. It wa.? claimed by officers of the steamer that the wine on board wad in the nature of a "ration" for th?? Italian seamen, who use wine at their mess. Apparently, this claim was al lowed to stand, because the Internal Revenue Bureau subsequently ruled that the wine ?ailed by revenue agents should be returned to the cus tody of the Italian liner's officers. The ruling stipulated, however, that ships could not soil any intoxicants to Americans when they arrive in our port?, and that the intoxicants on board must only be used for the ctew, as part of their daily rationing system. m ?.????lag I ??airy Thl?

What la the ?tatua of a German prtaoner of war captured by the Americans, deliv ered to the British for safe keep ing and now named In the French extradition Hat? That is the Interesting question raised by Admiral Von Reuter, called by the Germane "the hero tot Scapa Flow," in an Interview to day. The admiral makes an appeal to America to interest itself In oce of Germany's prisoners, .Lieut. Comdr. , Ruecker, commander of submarine TT-10S. Von Reuter* ssld: ?Survived Wreck. "Ruecker and one of his mea were picked up by an American de.troyer on May 12. 1?18. They wer? the only ?urvlvors whan tf-e U-108 was rammed and sunk In the Irish Sea. Ruecker was ?plendldly treated on board the American Ide ?troyar, whicb delivered him to the British in accordane? wltb the agreement In effect between Amer ica and Great Britain at the time. 'Ruecker. who was a nerv-cu? wrack wb?u I left England, la on? of four officers and fourteen men still held by the British. His sur render is now demanded by the French on some charge of attack ing a military transport." Hold? l . ?. Rrapaan.lblr. The admiral argues that Ruecker ! is still an American prisoner, hav ing been turned over to the Brit- ' ish only for safekeeping, and that ' as America Is not participating in the demand for tbe extradition of? German nationals, he is virtually, under American protection, al- ' though in British hands legally; ! therefore he hold? that the pris?! oner should not be delivered to the French by the British, as he is a prisoner of war, not a criminal. Von Reuter wonder? what Amer- ? Ica will do about this case. Discussing the extradition of German national?, the ,*dmir*l as? ? serted that JUoyd Oeorge person-1 ?ally., and not the British govern-! i ment, was the originator and heat and soul of that demand, which he : declared to be a violation of one ? ot the fundamental and most, sacred j | principle? of sovereignty. PRESIDENTS MENTALITY IS KEEN, AVERS DR. FRANCIS X. DERCUM Philadelphia, Feb. 15?President Wilson'? mentality is keen, was the declaration today of Dr. Francis X. Deri-urn, the eminent nerve specialist and alienist, who (or six months has been treating the President, in controvertng a report in connection with Mr. Wilson's demand for Sf-cre tary of State Lansing's resignation that the President was in a highly nervous state. Dr. Dercum was reluctant to talk at all about hi* patient's condition. "Ask Dr. Crayson," said he. "He is the man to talk about the President." But when urged to say something definite regarding the Presidents condition, he added: "You force me to say that the Presidents mentality is today keen. "Should J follow my inclination and habit of not dis cussing Mr. Wilsons condition, it would immediately be concluded that his condition was nat satisfactory. That is just the impression I do not wish to create. That is all I have to say in the matter." White House Closes Episode Of Resignation by Lansing 1 AU questions put to White House officials yesterday regarding the res ignation of Secretary ?Lansing elicited noncommittal repites. ?So far as the White House Is can ceerned all discussion of the sensa tional Wilson-Lansing episode ts closed.

The belief that Mr Lansing was waiting for an opportunity to re- ' sipn in his own way Is considered by many to be supported by the t fact that he and Henry P.
