The nineteen-year-old prisoner, a brunette, was captured Friday night at the home of George Maxwell. Brooklawn, N. J. She told the detec tive she was engaged to Maxwell, a railroad Inspector, and begged them to keep her predicament from him. Hirsch, who is in the hospital with a bullet in his stomach, is expected to recover. The girl was taken to the hospital at 1 o'clock this morning THE SUNDAY STAR, WASHINGTON, D. C., NOVEMBER 11, 1923-PART I. and was identified by the victim as the person who shot him when he re fused to submit to a holdup. Charles Bates, who the girl said was the man she really loved, was with her when Hirsch was shot. He was arrested shortly after he had left the store. The girl escaped and her arrest resulted from the piecing to gether of a letter she had written to Bales, couched in affectionate terms. When the girl was taken to the hospital she became hysterical. At the detective bureau she confronted Bates and charged him with hypno tizing her, “so I felt he owned me body and soul,” she asserted. ATLANTA STOCK YARDS DEAL IS CONFIRMED W. H.
