Police Try to Prove That Late Casper
Popp Killed Mrs. Slium.
NEW YORK, August 27.?The Brooklyn
police were working yesterday on the theory
that tho murder of Mrs. Lena Shum In
her apartments at 10?0 Flushing avenue,
Williamsburg, a week ago last Sunday was
committed by Casper Popp, a. stonecutter,
who committed suicide last Wednesduy by
drowning himself In Flushing bay, from
where his body was recovered on the same
Popp. who was thirty-two years old *nd
uveu wnii ins wiie at -it ;uaujei street, Williamsburg,
had been subject to eplleptlo fits.
He had been an intimate friend of Mrs.
Siium's husband before the latter's death,
eighteen months ago. Both men had worked
as stonecutters in a yard in Muspoth, and
after Shum's demise Popp brought liis tools
and afterward occasionally visited the
i widow. It was alleged that Popp -was
the person with whom Mrs. Siium was
seen talking 011 the day she was
killed, hi a park at Olendale, L. I.,
whither she had gone with several of
her woman neighbors to attend the picnic
of the Bayerischen Volksfest Verein. It
was alleged, too, that Popp answered the
description of the man seen in Mrs. Shum's
apartments on tho Sunday night she was
last seen alive.
The police learned yesterday that on the
Saturday before Mrs. Shum was killed Popp
told friends that he expected to.jne?t a
widow at a picnic the following day. Mrs.
Shum was seen talking with Mm for a
long time. Popp didn't reach his homo
until tho Monday morning following. He
was greatly excited and had been drinking.
There was a gash across his nose as If he
had been in a tight. He would not tell
where he had been, but he continued to act
strangely until soon after midnight Thursday
morning, when he ran out ol his house
clad only In iiia trousers and shirt. His
wife was unable to follow him. Nothing
was seen or heard of him again until his
body was found in Flushing bay.
Two of the women who had been in the
picnic party with Mrs. Shuni went to Popp's
house early yesterday morning with detectives
and recognized the dead man as the
person they had seen talking to Mrs. Shuni
In the picnic ground.
It was said yesterday that the police found
a vest belonging to Popi> willed had what
looked like blood stains on it. It seemed
to be the opinion of some of the deteetlveB
working on the case that if Popp killed
Mrs. Shmn he did it in a flt of temporary

For confirmation of the sensational story

and after some hesitation, due to
his aversion to getting his name In the
paper, he kindly consented to emit the following:

NEW YORK, August 27.?The firemen
who answered two alarms for a fire at 32

were ordered to take hand lines and went
down the floors that the fire fighters found
out Just what made the smoke so irritating.
Stored on tlie two burning floors were
quantities of aniiine salts, potash, lye and
other stuff used in dyeing.
Couldn't Forget the Fire.
The firemen, their eyes badly swollen and
their noses itching and burning, wandered
away and tried to forget the flre. They
couldn't. Last night five had been sent to

pools of dyed water. The dye got in contact
with their flesh and into their blood.
So powerful was the Ktuft that It ate
through the stitching of the boots and into
the feet of the men.
Fellows, an engineer with Engine 0 In
Liberty street, is in a critical state. Little
hope is held out for his recovery. Fellows
had several holes In his boots and the poison

Surgeon Reis tapped Fellows and found
that the blood In the lower part of his body
had been practically destroyed. The blood
that flowed from his veins after the tapping
was brown.
All the other firemen taken to the hospital
are suffering from this poisoning, although
none Is so badly affected as is Fellows.
John Mackenzie of Engine 6 Is suffering
from smoke narcosis and from anallne poisoning
as a result of getting the stuff on
his hands. Like Fellows he didn't begin to
feel the effects of the poisoning until along

to be nauseated about sundown last night.
He was hurried to the Hudson street Hospital.
He was poisoned by the dyestuff,
in addition to narcosis brought on by Inhaling
the fumes from the stuff.
When the others were g'-ttinx ready

Peterson and John Nichols found
they had no appetite. Instead they had
headaches and were very sick. Surgeon

They had got the poison 011 their feet and
hands and it had got into their blood.
Another fireman in the name company

put to bed there.
Tho poisoning hag caused a great stir
among the firemen. It is something now
to them. Never before have the members
of the fire department struck such a
strange happening. Chief Croker became

The old stone mason liad Just washed up,

himself by the window. The other members
of the family were chatting with one another.
Suddenly the door to the room opened
quietly. In the doorway stood a tall fellow
known as Harry Green, who boarded at 149

The shrieks of the rest of the Pellepplore
family, women and children, brought a

work to protect his prisoner.
At the Madison street police station Green
said he was the victim of a plot. Another
man, a friend of his, he said, had come to
him and told him he was wanted at the
Pelleppiore house. They went over together,
according to Green, and when he got there
and opened the door he had been set upon

the back of his head to support his story.
Green said his companion disappeared.

Capt. Bowes of tlie Madteon street station

Crowd Went to Help Police Chief An- 1
s-wer Letter.
[ PATERSON, N. J., August 27.-Chief of
Police John BImson yesterday received a
communication signed "Black Hand" and
directing liim to appear at Madison avenue
and Market street at 8 o'clock last night
and hand over $250 to an agent who would
be there. The chief went to keep the engagement,
but not to pay the money, and
found a crowd of more Uian 2,0(10 men,
women and children there. They had heard
that a threatening letter had been received
by the head of the police department and
wanted to see what would happen. The
locality specified In the letter ia about a
mile and a half from the center of the city
and a quiet residential neighborhood.
Chief Bimson was surprised to see the
throng. He regarded tho Black Hand .letter
as either a joke or the work of a crank,
but had made up his mind to see the thing
out. He remained in the neighborhood
about half an hour and rtiund it nccessmy
to steal away from the crowd.
About three weeks ago Nicholas Sportelly
and Frank Fasoll were arrested as agents
of the Black Hand Society. They had sent
a letter to an Italian barber directing him
to meet them at Madison avenue and Market
street prepared to hand over J250 In an
envelope. The police instructed the barber
to be at the place designated. Capt. Taylor
and Detective Sergeant Lord were In hiding
and the^ pounced upon a gang of five men
who approached the barber. They got three

Man Picked Up In East River Sny?

NEW" YORK. August 27.?There seems tit

Holton came from, but there Is no doubt
that he landed In the East river. He wa*
pulled out of the water about 100 feet front
the Brooklyn slip of the I''ulton ferry
shortly before noon yesterday and said that
ho had fallen from the ferryboat Fulton.
The captain of the boat says no?emphatically
no?and hints that the man must hava
taken his bath from the deck of the tugboat
Mlneola. The Mineola denies all responsibility,
however, while two longshore*
men stoutly assort that they saw Mr. llolton
falling from the Brooklyn Bridge. It
was one of the latter two who started tho

station house by rushing in and declaring:

were getting ready to arrest him for brklgo

offices of the Hamburg-American Steamship

rate-cutting war that threatens to send
down minimum cabin rates so i iw that
it may be possible to have a continuum
ocean voyage for about the same amount
that it costs to board at a good hotel in
New York. In a circular to its audits#
the French line thus calls their attention
to the rate cutting:
"Notice the rates, the sailing: dates antf,
most Important of all. the immense reduction
In first-class eastbound rates
for all future sailings from New York."
The line announces a reduction of $-<)

eastward Is $*10.
It is said the reason the French Una
lias made its heavy reductions is to counteract
t)ie alleged policy of the Cunar<l
line in selling tickets to Paris at the
sanse rates that they sell tickets to London.
The Cunard line did this to offset
the action of the White Star line In
' hanging its terminal for the best clan*
of its ships to Cherbourg. It was the
only way tho Cunard line could K?.t passengers
to the continent.
The impression of agents of .'.11 f?io

iiuil perhaps bitter rute war and that
then the financial necessities of the competing
lines will cause them to get together
and hit upon a compromise by
which all may get along. In other words,
there will'be a "readjustment ol" rates,
as it Is put In the vernacular ot lU-J
