An Evidence of Progressiveness.
As an evidence of Progressiveness, in practice as well as theory, The Times appears today in a bigger
and a better form. This change to a bigger page, with eight columns instead of seven, has been under con
sideration for a long time. Its advantages to the readers have been recognized and a favorable opportunity
to make the necessary big changes in equipment has been awaited.
The increased size of the paper will make it possible for The Times to better serve its public, it will inci
dentally give the advertisers of Washington better opportunity to display their business announcements and
so better serve their public. With the larger form of paper every effort will be made to put to the best use
the increased space available in enlarging and bettering the news contents and all the departments of The
Times, and from its readers the newspaper seeks co-operation In its progress.
He Writes Buffalo Police,
Telling Where to Find
Missing Boy's Body.
Boastful Murderer Mailed Card
From Washington Telling
of His Crime.
BUFFALO, N. Y., Nov. 17-A police
dragnet extending from coast to
coast was spread today by Buffalo
police In a hunt for tho murderer of
Joseph Josephs, a seven-year-old boy
whoso body was unearthed yester
day In a pit near his home in Lacka
wanna City. The Josephs boy had
been missing for a year and his body
was found by moans of postal cards
written at intervals to Buffalo pol.co
and newspapers. The last card de
scribed the spot where the body was
One of the postal cards written by
the depraved murderer of the boy,
stated ho had killed twelve other
boys. Police at first wero not In
clined to bellero this, but early this
morning Chiof Regan declared that
after a night of communication with
other cities from where postal cards
had been mailed by the murderer
that the boastful murderer probably
Is telling the truth in rogard to tho
number of crimes he has committed.
o uwh in watningion,
Postal cards received from time to'
time since the disappearance of the Jo
sephs boy were dated In lloston. New
York, Washington and Philadelphia.
The murder of tho Josephs boy, ac
cording to police, and medical authori
ties, Is the work of a most depraved
man. The child hail been outragod,
murdered and his body torn limb from
limb and bulled In a oess pool within
a few hundred yards of his home.
Offers of rewards agcregattng tl,rQO
failed to give any trace of the boy but
ili postal cards telUng of his death
appeared quite regularly at police head
quarters, at the home of his parents
and st the business house of the boy's
father, who lu a wealthy Syrian mer
chant. For a time these cards were lgnor-d
by the police, but lout Friday, when
one was received describing the exact
spot where the body was burled, police
nnd medical examiners began an Inves
tigation which resulted in tne nnoing
of the body, piece by piece. The last
part found was the head.
Calls Himself Mason.
Immediately after the body was nn
cirthed tho police appealed to tha postal
Inspectors to try and trace the writer
of tha cards.
The murderer, who. on one card,
writes he Is a thirty-second degrea Ma
son, declares that on Wednesday he
will return to Buffalo and give himself
up to the police. This. It Is thought, in
metcly a blind to forestall a search for
Besides the murder of the Josephs
boy. the murderer writes that two other
boys wero asi-uultcd by him. He gives
the places where tho assault occurred,
and In eno Instance, that of a newsboy
statlored at an outlying street car
transfer point, the police have verified
this statement.
t.lnce the lliidlng of the Josephs boVs
body, the police arc looking up records
of children's alsappearances within tho
last eighteen months and Hnd that
seven, all boys under ten years, have
dl'appe.ired and have not slnco been
heard from.

Had Been Ortnlring.
Accordlug ti the farla devu'ooed tir
tho police, Buckley had been drtnWln
nigni. Aceompamoci by his two
brothers, Joseph and Thomas ll-jekley,
atid Jumrs Self, he had mad a round
of the bar rooms early In the fvuniiirf.
At one place be had become disorderly
and had been thrown Into the street by
the proprietor. During the evurTl which
ensued his coat collar was torn and Ida
face cut. Shortly artw midnight the
party entered n Crt-eX restaurant on
King lroot, where another altercation
arose, and Buckley and tus compttnloua
were forced to leave,
Buckley then left his Wends and
started to the Braddock House. He en
tered the building from the Camsron
street side and went to a window at
the end of a hall on the fourth floor.
Here ho removed his long overcoat and,
hat and placed them on the floor, raised
the window, and stepped out on an Iron
It was from this balcony that he fell,
his body being found on the brick pave
ment directly beneath It Near the
sody was found the heel of one of his'
shoes which had been turn off, and ths
police think that his beel caught la
the Iron bars of the flr-escape, caus
ing him to lose his balance.
. W . Rimnuvn. nranrlnlnp nt lh
Braddoek House, heard Buckley enter
the building and yelled to him to stop
making so much noise. He did not
know who It was at the tlmo, and said
this morning If he had known It wsi
Buckley he would have stopped a
from entering the building. Some
months ago he ordered him nrter to
romo Into the Braddock Tlouso at
night, on account of Buckley's atten
tions to his young daughter.
Was City Guide.
Buckley first camo Into promlnene
seven years ago. when he was thirteen
years old. At that time Alexandria wai
overrun with young boys who acted as
guides to the many historic places
within tho old city. They met th
trains for lit, Vernon and offered
their cervices to Uio hundreds of tour
ists who visit Alexandria every daj
from all parts of tbe world. Buckley,
a rosy-checked youngster, with an at
tmc'lve face and mast agreeable man
ners. wa a favorlto with tho tourists
and far outdistanced his competitors In
the number of his fee
The guides became so numerous and
annoyed the visitors to such an nxtcnl
that six years ago the city council wai
compelled to pass an ordinance which
required the guides to take out a llrrniM
nnd pay a feo of $3 por annum. Bucklej
was the only boy that had sufficient
nerve to provide himself with n IIckim.
His only competitor for years was Chan
S. Taylor, a member of an o'.d Virginia
family, who piloted visitors nruund th
streets for a, number of yeans
Since Taylor's death, three venrs i.c.
Buckley has had the entire Held to h'm
self. Every day ln the vear rain oi
snow, he met the through trains oi
the Washlnrton-Vlrglnln jallum, nnd
always managed to get together a a
who wished to see the historical pi'
of old Alexandria. The first plaos tint
was always visited was the pi-nddck
House, and fro-n tha spot where HH
