Brings Great Relief j,.
to London. ;
Dismayed and Disappointed Over |
Failure of Friendship to j
Yield Results.
By the Associated Press.
LONDON, October 11.?A peaceful J
solution of the near eastern tangle
has apparently been reached on the
basis of the surrender of East- | L
ern Thrace to the Turks with
proper safeguard^ for the Christian
minorities and the neutrality of the
Dardanelles. A convention putting
into effect an armistice between the
Kemalists and the Greeks was signed
by the delegates at Mudania late last i
night. The news brought great relief
here, where there was great anxiety j
lest the Turks remain recalcitrant!
despite the newly declared unity of ;
the allies. "While the fragmentary i
dispatches from the scene of the con- '
ference did not say so categorically,
it is believed that Ismet Pasha, in
signing for the Turks, did so under
orders from the Angora government,
to which the allied terms hud previously
been forwarded.
Reason for Delay I nknown. a
The ICemalists had been given until t,
5 o'clock yesterday afternoon to accept
or reject the allied proposals,
and the reason for the delay is not
The main points of the armistice
provided for evacuation of Thrace;
within fifteen days and complete j
transfer of the civil administration '
to the Turks in an additional month; ;
delimitation of new neutral zones 1
alone the Dardanelles and Bosporus j
by mixed military commissions, and j P
non-occupation of Thrace by Turkish
military forces until a peace treaty ! H
is signed. E
The change in the attitude of the I
t French delegates, who previously had |
supported the Turkish stand, is believed
to have contributed largely to j
the readiness with which the Kemal- ;
ists yielded. Before signing. Ismet > e
Pasha is said to have protested that
the terms were in contradiction of ; Q
the assurances originally Riven him j
by Gen. Charpy. He was told, how- ; jr
s ever, that the French delegate had i e.
assented to the hew demands. i f,

Ismet Pasha Yields After lengthy ' ir

The new attitude taken by France after

the results they expected. al
At the session of the conference Mon- j

satisfaction at the terms the allies of- j ir
fered. He said to Gen. Harlrgton: "But
your new armistice convention is in j
contradiction to the assurances given to ; lc
me by Gen. Charpy. The convention, j u

Basket Seen Near Spot Where Rector

By the A<snrfnted Press.
11.?Frank I*. Kirby. a Middlesex
county detective, credited with having
obtained the statement from Raymond
Schneider on which Clifford
Hayes. nineteen years old. was
charged with the murders of the Rev.
Edward Wheeler Hall, rector of the
Episcopal Church of St. John the
Evangelist, and his choir leader, Mrs.
Eleanor Reinhardt Mills, was attacked
hv a erroun of indiemant citi

hurled at him as he found refuge in a
baggage room, where policemen rescued
Hayes' attorney, Thomas F. Hagerty,
announced today he had proof
that Hayes wag at home in bed at
the hour when Schneider charges he
committed the crime.
Schneider, in a signed statement,
declared Hayes shot the pair on the
deserted Phillips farm near here
about 1:30 on the morning of September
15, thinking them Nicholas
Bahmer and his fifteen-vear-old
daughter. Pearl Bahmer. Hagerty
said Hayes told him. and that his
statement was confirmed by his entire
family, that he returned home
at 12:45 and went immediately to bed.
Had Deen With Schneider.
Hayes admitted he had been in
Buecleuch Park that night with
Schneider, hunting for Bahmer and
Pearl, the lawyer said, but denied
that he had been on the Phillips'
farm at all.
Bombarded with bricks, Kirby
escaped unhurt, by locking himself
in the baggage room at the New
Brunswick Pennsylvania station.
Later he was surrounded by armed
policemen in uniform and escorted
to police headquarters, while the
crowd which had shown its resentment
over the arrest of Hayes, dispersed.
The group included several members
of the committee which had
offered $1,000 reward for the arrest
and conviction of the sluyer of Dr.
Hall and Mrs. Mills.

of Hayes, declaring they considered '
It a "frame-up"' to quiet the indigna- i

governor, by making it appear that!
the mystery had been cleared.
Kirby retorted with equal candor ;
at first, at the same tin^e walking ;

tion in the direction o; lice head- j
quarters. Before he 1 proceeded |
far ne found himself surrounded by j
the crowd which pressed closer and j
closer to him.
He tried to keep straight ahead,
but suddenly found his way blocked
by angry anil excited men. He
looked around, decided the crowd
was thinnest behind him, turned and
ran in that direction. The crowd
ran after him with threats of tar
and feathers. The pursuit led past
a pile of brick. Many in the crowd
3topped long enough to get an arm
rul with which to hurl after the
fleeing officer.
Reaching the station platform,
fvirby espied the open door of the
baggage room, dived inside, closed
he door and bolted it, just as leaders
in the crowd reached it.
Rescued by Policemen.
For a while the crowd contented
Itself with throwing bricks against
the baggage room door. Then a
posse of patrolmen, summoned by

tCirby. The crowd vanished with the
irrival of the bluecoats.
Outstanding developments yesterJay
included the admission by Prosecutor
Beekman of Somerset county
:hat he was making no effort to de:ermine
the truth of Schneider's

nurders; the arrests of Pearl Bahner,
fifteen years old, who was with
Schneider when the two bodies wore

Bahmer, her father, held on a crimilal
charge pref</rred by the girl, and

tot solve the mystery?that, in fact,
'we've just started to work on the
Middlesex county detectives ex>octcd
to interview Mrs. Frances Hall,
widow of the slain rector, aerain to
Seek MlMtng Basket.
The authorities today turned their
attention to investigating a report
that a blood-stained basket which
was seen near the bodies of the slain
rector and his choir leader on the
lay they were discovered had disappeared.
Four persons, it was said,
saw this basket a few hundred- feet
from the bodies. The basket, which
was made of wood, was filled with
rags and papers. Some of the papers
bore large splashes of what appeared
to be blood, it was asserted.
During the excitement incident to
the discovery of the crime the basket
lisappeared. The authorities said they
2ould not account for its disappearance.
The persons who are said to
have seen the basket were unwilling
to tell the authorities about it before,
it was said, because they disliked the
idea of being drawn into the investigation.
Announcement is made that a committee
of citizens in the sixth ward,
where Clifford Hayes lived, would
hold a "Tag day" on Saturday for
the purpose of raising funds for his
legal defense.

Smith and Miller Division Is
Promising Epochal Test
Ul lUCdlS.
Democratic "Wide-Open" Principles
Contrasted With Those
of G. 0. P.
Staff Correspondent of The Star.
NEW YORK. October 11.?By all
signs, omens and portents at the outset
the struggle for the governorship
of the Empire state promises to be an
epochal campaign. It opened last
night and will continue ever increasing
fire yntll Monday night prior to
the election, which this year falls on
November 7. It is to be a contest
between two giants, one Gov. Miller,
appealing to the republican party, to
the business interests and to the
thoughtful independent voter; the
other former Gov. Alfred E. Smith,
supposedly a popular idol of tha plain
people, calling upon the democrats,
also commending himself to the business
elements, but sharply putting
class against class and arraigning
his opponent as an alleged tool of
great corporate interests in the state.
It promises to be a bitter campaign.
No mercy will be asked nor
any granted on either side. It fell
out that Gov. Miller found himself on
the defensive in the first speech of
the campaign. Addressing his audience
at Utica last night, he is quoted
as saying; "I have been accused of
being a corporation lawyer, as well
as reactionary. Well, the state of
New York is a great business corporation.
For two years that corporation
has been my sole client."
Denies Interests* Friendship.
Then he went on to deny that he
was the friend of special interests
or that he was a "reactionary." as
charged by the democrats and by Mr.
Smith in public statements. The
democratic candidate, Mr. Smith, will
begin his speechmaking tonight at
Yonkers. He is making a special
drive in the vicinity of Greater New
York, where he hopes that the voters
may be influenced by the sentiment
of the metropolis, where he unqus(Continued

Closer Co-Operation of Work
of the Americas Up at
j Porto Rican Justice Cites Opportunity
to Interpret Ideals
of United States.
Close alliance of the Red Cross work
of the Americas was discussed at the
pan-American group conference of the
American Red Cross convention today.
This was one of four separate conferences
into which the convention was
divided today, the others being on
civilian home service, public health
| nursing and home hygiene and care
of the sick.
Much can be done by the Red Cross
interpreting to the countries of Latin
America the free Institutions and social
ideals of the United States, Judge
Emi'.lo del Toro, chief justice of the
j supreme court of Porto Rico, told the
Praises Work of Society.
"As we are interested in* everything
that can bring closer international relations
between the Latin American republics
and the United States," he said,
"we feel that Porto Rico can interpret
in its own life to the republics of Latin
America the free institutions and social
ideals of the United States; and how
much can be done in this direction
through the Red Cross, that admirable
institution that conserves its peculiar
characteristics in nearly all nations of
the world, and that associates these nations
in an effective manner, without
mental reservation, without prejudice
of religion or politics, for the purpose of
alleviating human suffering.
Will Understand Idealism.
"I am sure that when the noble
women of Latin America, when the
; leaders of thought in our sister re|
publics, and when the vigorous men
and women possessed of intelligence
and idealism, come into contact with
the spirit of the American Red Crocs,
then they will understand better the
| soul of the America of the north, and
will come to know its admirable,
powerful, active idealism. They will
observe the soul of America in its
most noble sentiments, and will discover
the treasures of kindness and
of truth and of sacrifice, of which
they would otherwise have no conception.
and the result will be the
development of love and admiration.
"Our children." he continued, "exert
an admirable influence upon the
spirit of the Red Cross. The Junior
Red Cross offers a fine opportunity
to develop friendship between Latin
America and the United States.
Thousands of children who are mem5
bers of the Junior Red Cross carry on
a friendly correspondence with the
children of Europe and other countries.
Why cannot that correspondence
be carried on with the children
of the sister republics of America,
that have so many things in common?"
Plends for Action.
He pleaded for some program of action
which would unite the men,
women and children of North, Central
and South America in Red Cross
service, "being sure that in this service
we are doing more than curing
wounds and alleviating suffering."
Dr. R. J. Alfaro, minister from
Panama, told of the mutual relations
between the Panaman and American
D Pm*S.
"We have enjoyed," he said, "mutual
and efficient co-operation with
the Canal Zone chapter of the American
Red Cross and we have had an
equal opportunity to show how effectively
this humanitarian work
may promote pan-American nelghborliness.
"When the frightful earthquake of
J918 razed the beautiful city of
Guatemala, It was seen at once that
the Isthmus was the nearest place
from where relief could be brought
in haste to the sufferers. The organizations,
the Panamanian and the
American, got busy and worked hand
in hand witn me umiusi earnestness
and in the best spirit of co-operation.
Soon they were able to send a relief
expedition provided with tents,
covers. clothes, medicines. food,
everything expected to be needed in
the awful emergency, and the sister
republic received without delay the

Under th<? permit, the Capital Traction
Company, in addition to installing
trackage on the bridge and
across the reservation at Rosslyn. is
required to provide suitable concrete
loading platforms and sidewalks for
the benefit of passengers. It is also
required to provide adequate illumination
at the loop and approaches
and to bear the expense of paving

way over the bridge and such rates or
charges on freight transported as may

Public Must Pay.
J Br arrangement previously made with
the Public Utilities Commission, which
authorized the Capital Traction Company
to extend its lines across the
| bridge from M street, the company is
J authorized to collect an additional fare
1 of one-half cent from each passenger
j carried across the bridge, in order to
! meet the tax it must pay the govern!
ment for that service. It was reprej
sented by the company at the public
hearing on the subject some months ago,
that unless it was permitted to charge
the bridge fare of one-half cent, it
would not feel justified in expending the
large sum involved in making the extension
to Virginia.
Under the approved plans the
Georgetown approach of the bridge
will open into M street on a straight
line just east of 35th street and connection
with the car tracks on M
street will be made at that point. The
remainder of the block on the south
side of M street between 34th and

' line of the Chesapeake and Ohio
canal, will be made into a public
park. The Washington-Virginia railway
terminal will remain on its present
site east of the proposed loop
near Hume street and probably will
be enlarged and improved. On the
west side of the loop, near Hume
street, the Washington and Old Dominion
railway will establish a new
Old Bridge to Be I'sed.
Orders have been given for the clos[
ing of the old Aqueduct bridge to all

j exception that the Washington and Old
Dominion cars will be permitted to
cross the old bridge to its present
terminus at 36th street, Georgetown,
until its new terminal at Kosslyn is
According to Maj. Tyler, the trafflic
arrangements for the new bridge present
the best solution of the street
railway problems that was possible in
that location. They will relieve, he
said, the congestion on the District of
Columbia side of the river by the elimination
of the Washington and Old
Dominion trains from the streets and
make It possible for passengers to ride
from downtown directly to the south
end of the bridge In Virginia, where
direct connection can ue mane timer

cepting Kind on Hand.
A warning- to Washington consumers
not to quibble over the kind
of coal they will take from their
dealers this winter was issued by
the Public Utilities Commission today.
The statement emphasized the fact
that persons with hot-air heating
plants should take the so-called furnace,
or large size anthracite.
This coal, the commission says, is
now coming in at such a rate that
consumers will be allowed a two|
months' supply immediately. If you
I insist upon egg or stove coal you
J will get only a thirty-day supply and
may have to wait for that.
White Ash for I<otrobes.
For consumers who have only latrobes
in their homes, the commission
gives this warning:
"The householder who uses latrobes
may want red ash coal, but
white ash is a splendid and efficient
substitute. If your dealer cannot
furnish the former, but offers you the
latter, doo't refuse to take it. You
may hav<- difficulty in getting either
kind lafier in the winter."
The statement follows:
"A study of the information submitted
by householders to the Public
Utilities Commission regarding their
coal requirements for the coming
winter shows that in the case of
many residences having hot-air
heating systems the statement is
made that egg or stove coal is
"Residents whose houses are heat
ed by latrobes are insisting on red
ash stove coal?white ash coal will
not do.
Shortage Main Pear.
"Many apartment houses, too, are
calling for anthracite coal for use
in their hot-water heating systems.
"Consumers of coal must realise
that during the coming winter It Is
I not a question of getting the particular
kind or size of coal to which they
are accustomed, or which they prefer,
hut of getting a sufficient quantity
of any kind which will htat their
"The majority of hot-air furaacee
can be operated efficiently and economically
with so-called furnace or
broken coal, i.e., the large size anthracite
"In proportion to the demand this
| kind of coal is more plentiful in the
local mtfrket at the present time than
? the smaller domestic sizes, and under
the restrictions placed upon the delivery
of coal by the commission,
dealers are permitted to furnish their
customers at this time with a twomonth
supply of broken or furnace
coal, while only a one-month supply
of egg. stove or chestnut coal may be
Distinction Necessary.
"This distinction Is necessary because
of the greater proportion of
j houses equipped with latrobes, hot
water and steam heating systems, in
j which it is far more difficult to use
the large broken coal. Use furnaco
or broken coal in your hot-air furnace
and start the winter with a
two-month supply.
"The householder who uses latrobes
may want red ash coal, but white
ash coal is a splendid and efficient
substitute. If your dealer cannot
furnish the former, but offers the latter.
don't refuse to take it?you may
have great difficulty getting either
kind later in the winter.
"There may be a few hot-water
heating systems in hotels and apart'
ment houses, particularly in the
I smaller buildings, that cannot use
i bituminous coal to advantage. In
! the majority of cases bituminous coal
j must be used?a full supply of anI
thracite cannot be supplied, and the
I owners and managers of such build
I ings should plan accordingly. It
may be necessary to prohibit the use
of anthracite coal in such places, unless
It is demonstrated to the commission
in any particular case that
bituminous coal cannot be used.
Bituminous coal is relatively low in
price, is plentiful on the local market.
and there are no restrictions at
present on the amount that may be
