CLARK CASE ARREST.
Man Says He Knows Where the
Child Is Warns a Brooklyn Store
keeper to Be Careful or His Child
May Be Kidnapped.
New York, Alay 29 A man who give
hln name as R. Nugent and said he was
a book canvassor from Boston, was ar
rested at 7,30 o'clock this morning in
Sands street, Brooklyn, on the techni
cal charge ot vagrancy. The leal rea
son fcr his arrest Is the allegation of
Fred Salzel, a nwade.iler. 21" Nassau
street, that Nugent said to him, "I
know nil about the Clark Kidnapping
case."
Salzel said that Nugent came Into his
store to buy candy, Salzel's little girl
being In tho place at the time. Nugent,
hf savs, made the lemark that Salzel
had better watch his child or she would
be kidnapped.
"That was a terrible thing," observed
the newsdealer, referring to the kid
nnpping of Marlon Claik.
"Oh, I know all about It," exclaimed
Nugent, according to Salzel's story. "I
could toll where the child is, who took
her awav and why It was done, and all
the rest."
With that Nugent Is said to have left
the store hurriedly, Sal7el followed
him, called a policeman and had him
arrested. At the police station Nugent
denied having made any of the re
maiks ascilbed to him. Ho said Salzel
had had him arrested because he
thought he was not going to pty for
the candy,
Salzel, in making his statement to
Deputy Chief Mackelly, appeared so
much In earnest that the deputy ehlif
had both men arraigned before Magis
trate Kramer. After an exninlnntlon
the magistrate held Nugent In X200 ball
until his record could be Investigated
thotoughly.
The alleged book canvasser Is n msn
nbout 2" years of age, well dressed and
of an intelligent appearance In his
pockets weie found caids beating the
name of "Wllllnin V Jackson. Rng
Time Pianist." The cae will come up

HAS NO HOPE FOR THE PARIS.
President of Atlantic Line Believes
She Is a Total Loss.
I'ovematk, Cornwall, Mav 29 Fur
thei attempts to llo.a the Ameilcan
line steamship Pails have been aban
doned until the nest spilng tides.
Flesh holes have betn dlscoveied In
her foiepait. Theie Is no doubt the
Paris Is badly strained. Foi tunately.
the weather continues line and the sea
Is smooth
Baltlmoie. May 29 Bernard N Bak
er, president of the Atlantic Tinns
poit company, has leturned to Baltl
moie after a bilef stay In London on
business. He saj that It was undei
stood that the American line steam
ship New York would be put In the
Olierboing tiade In place of the wteck
ed Pails. The New York is under
going lepairs and Is to be ready to
start soon
In speaking of the causes of the
wrecks of the Pails and Mohegan,
which went ushore at almost the same
place. Mi. BTker said It wus an In
penetrable mystery and must remain
so until after the official Investigation,
hen It was hoped that something
dellnite about It would be learned
'The officers of the Pails. should be
able to assign some cause for the ac
cident, although the aie saying noth
ing now," Mr. Baku added "The
wieck might posslblv have been
biought about by a wrong manipula
tion of the big lights on the Lizard, al
though even if this were tiue," he
sild, ' It was doubtful whether It could
ever be pioved. There aie two big
fixed white lights and a ted revolving
light on this point, and If one of tin
white lights had been obllteiated and
the other one taken by the Paris for
one further out, the boat might havo
inn nil the locks, thinking ull danger
had been passed "
Mr. Baker, however, did not under
stand how the Pails could be anywhere
near Rugland, as she had started from
the French coast and had a perfectly
clear and strnlght course
The Mohegan was wrecked, Mr. Baker
explained, Just about 7 o'clock In the
evening, or dusk, when the lights weig
Just appearing: while the Pails accord
ing to the accounts, was wiecked some
time about 2 o'clock In the morning,
which In Rngland Is veiy close to day
light, and about the time tho lights
would dlsappeai That is one fact that
gives some plausibility to the misman
agement ot the lights theory, although
Mr. Baker does not say that happened.
Mr. Baker docs not believe It possible
to save the Paris, and considers her a
total loss.
"They might," he asserted. In con
clusion, "blow hoi up and save some of
hei fixings, but unless they have a
most unusual stietch of calm weather,
I don't think they can get her off tho
jocks The sea nt that point Is ter
ribly inugh, and theio is no more ex
posed point nnyvvheie,"
