Officials said anything Mr. Gerard may have said in his speech was en tirely a personal expression of opin ion, and should not be considered as reflecting the attitude of this Gov ernment.

John Colbert, brother of the slain girl, asserts that the detectives are simply taking the "easiest way" In fastening the crime on Lewis and en deavoring to clear up the case, and haa appealed to Mayor Smith. Promises Justice. Mayor Smith, in response, has- de clared that justice must be done, and the mystery solved, no matter who Is involved. More letters written by Lewis, one twelve and one 'fifteen days before the murder, show that at that time he waa contemplating suicide. - The Kyle girls, with whom .Lewis 'spent some of his last moments on earth, says Lewis hands showed no marks when ho danced with them after the murder.

EXPECT flE ON REFERENDUM IN THE SENATE Vote-to Be Taken Tomorrow on ' m Sheppard Bill and Under wood Amendment. VICE PRESIDENT IS ABSENT Unless Votes Are Changed From Previous Poll This Will Mean Tie. With the Senate. under agreement to vote on the District prohibition bill tomorrow afternoon and likewise on the Underwood referendum and other amendments to the bill, a canvass of Senators today shows that on the basis of a full membership in attend ance or paired the result on the refer endum will be a tie. When the Senate it Committee of the 'Whole, before thi. 'jolldays voted on, the referendum the referendum was defeated by a tie vote. Vice President Marshall was absent. Had he been present he would have voted for the referendum. The Vice Presi dent is out of the city and will not .be here when the vote Is taken to morrow. Some May Change Front. The calculation to the effect that a tie may be repeated tomorrow rests on the assumption that Senators will all vote aa they did before the holi days in committee of the whole. But It la. not a certainty that there will be no changes. In fact it Is quite possible -that several Senators will change vfront on the matter. Under the circumstances the utmost uncertainty prevails in the Senate to day as to the outcome of the referen dum. The bill itself will command enough votes to be passed, either with or without the referendum amendment. Stuck Depend on Attendance. One of the uncertain phases of the situation concerns the presense or absence of Senators. It Is by no means sure that all of the Senators will be either present or paired. Sen ator Gore is in a. hospital, but a jair has been arranged for him. He Is against the referendum on District prohibition. Several Senators absent today may or may not show up In time for a vote. Supporters of the referendum con sidered the plan of wiring the V.lce President to return In order to vote off a possible tie. This course was not taken, however. Discussion Likely Today. Discussion of the prohibition bill is' expected In the Senate later In the day from Senators who want to make argument and fear they will not get time to do to tomorrow. Senator Ken- yon will speaic on me reierenuum and seek to show that it is uncon stitutional. He takes the position that the District prohibition bill Is not simply a local matter, but that it would affect interstate commerce, and thta residents of the District cannot legally vote on a matter of interstate commerce. Whether the two rival mass meet ings which were held here yesterday, one for the referendum and one against it, will affect the result, can not be told. It is believed, however, that every member of the Senate had already made up his mind how lie would vote. Natlon-wido interest In voiced In the outcome of tho voting tomorrow, alike on the bill Itseir and on the referendum. Practically no doubt is entertained that the bill will be pass ed In some form, but the drys will I not look on the action as more than a partial gain ir Uie reierenuum is hitched to the bill. AUTO RUNS WILD; TWO HURT Big Truck Runs Through Crowd at Car Stop.. Two .persons nbout to board a south bound Ninth street car at New York avenue northwest shortly be fore 10 o'clock today were knocked down and hurt by an automobile truck- of the Cranford Paving Com pany, which ran through the crowd when the brakes refused to work.

He turned the truck toward tho curb. The front wheels went up on the sidewalk, and it Mopped. BUFFALO BILL DYING All Hope Relinquished for Famous Plainsman and Showman. DENVER, CoL. Jan. 8.

Sensation Follows Sensation as House Rules Committee Resumes Inquiry; ' Boston Witness Bitter. '. violent Language by examiner Chiperfield Intimates He Is Ready to Stop Talk With Physical Attack; Lansing and Tumulty Testify Sensations followed one day as the House Committee on Rules, before a throng of, spec tators that jammed the large hearing room, continued its. in vestigation of an alleged leak to peace note. ' The high lights of a thrilling day in the investigation were: Exchange of bitter language and a near-personal encoun ter between Thomas W. Lawson and Congressman .Burnett M. Chiperfield of Illinois, a Republican member of the Rules Com mittee. ' The refusal of Mr. Lawson to give the committee any names, either of those who profited by the leak or of those who may have been responsible for it. THREAT BY CHIPERFIELD. Congressman Chiperfield's threat that if Mr. Lawson went 'a bit fur- ther" he "will not be able to testify any more today." Secretary Tumulty's vehement de nial that he had any connection with the leak, and his demand that Con gressman Wood apologize for bring ing his name into tbe affair. The testimony of Secretary aLnsing giving & physical history of the note. and the development, that the Presi dent wrote the note himself and with out aid of .any White House sten ographer. ' Outstanding Events. These were but .the outstanding events at a hearing that was replete with thrills and as diverting as any ever held at the Capitol. Adding to the general interest of the proceedings waa the presence in the hearing room of Barney Baruch. the Wall Street operator, who is al leged to have shared In the bear raid. There were also present Qtto Kahn, of Kuhn, Loeb & Co., who has entered an Indignant denial that he waa the recipient of advance information about the peace note. Gripping Feature. The near encounter between Con gressman Chiperfield and Thomas W. Lawson was easily the gripping fea ture of the morning session of the committee. Mr. LavFson, claiming that he had been Insulted, informed the commlt- i tee that he wag jg to take care of hlmgeIf and Mr. chiperneld, smart- I ing under Lawson's statement, that Chiperrteld had made "a cowardly taint accusation." broadly intimated ithat he was aboat rfadjr to put Mr Lawson out of business with a smash on the Jaw. Little Information. So far as actual information was concerned, the committee obtained little. It was a day of denials and sarcastic colloquies, engineered by Mr. Laweon and Mr. Chiperneld. . Secretary insing tnrew no ngnc I upon me auegea lean, uui uiciatj iv- scribed the manner in wnicn me peace note was written ana given to tne public. Alfred H. Curtis, of New York, and F. M .Lockwood & Co., brokers, were subpoenaed as witnesses during the hearing. Furnishing Ae Names. When the committee took recess for lunch Mr. Lawson was testifying in a tranquil manner, but furnishing no names In support of his charges of a leak, and the participation by niembers of Congress in stock specu lation. As Lauaon finished hi verbal fenc ing, a hysterical woman dashed out of the crowd of men and women and put her arms about his neck, talking! rapidly to him. Bitter Controversy. . . ... , .., -L.ei nun bo j- " " "u he won't testify any more today, said Congressman Chiperfield, at the fcoin-ht of hl controversy with Law) son sodn after the financier began i t to testify. Tne men were wunin tno; feet of one another at the time and each was glaring at the other. Jerry South, sergeant at-arms for Secretary Tumulty's state ment and testimony before the Rules Committee will be found on Page 3 of this edi tion of The Times. Secretary Lansing's evi dence before the committer will be found on Page L. another in rapid succession to Wall Street on the President's the committee, moved to Lawson's side as it seemed likely there wonla be physical combat. - . "You must alt down, Mr, Lawson, shouted Chairman Henry. "1 know a four flusner every tlma I see one." shouted Mr. Lawson. a 3 ha took his seat and glared at Con gressman" Chiperfield. Aeenae4 By Cklperfleld. Chiperfield had Just accused Law son of "layine a four flush ra the tftyui-"4elisfT far-fbaoesdo and insinuations against members' of Congress and this committee."- The audience waa keyed u to a high pitch of excitement. Lawson advanced aad put his finger undsr the nose of the Illinois member as he asserted that "he didn't propose to be bulldozed by this committee or any member of It." Various members of the committee were shooting for order, sad duriar the hubbub Congressman Garrett, a. Democratic member, demanded that "thia witness be instructed to give thia committee facta and proceed In order." Aaka for Penalty. "What's the penalty; what's the penalty here for saying what I want tor yelled Lawson in the confusion. Congressman Chiperfield is a six-footer and weighs probably .236 pounds. Mr. Lawson la slightly under that height. but isn't a small man himself. The near personal difficulty between the men caused a quiet shuffling back of chairs near the committee table as news paper men and those In the audleace Instinctively scented trouble. Jerry South, another bulky Individual, remained standing by the aide of the Boston man until tbe fracas showed signs of subsiding. As he took his seat Mr. Lawson de clined to go on with his statement, say ing that he had been "insulted" and "I can be of no further use to this com mittee." Submits ts Queetiams. He promised to submit to questions, but asserted he would not proceed with a direct statement unless permitted to do so in his own way. Congressman Chiperfield had Interrupted Mr. Lawsou before he fairly began. The trouble started when Mr. Law son attempted to say something about the Senate, evidently having reference to Senator Stone, who assailed Law son on the floor of that body recentl "I said when I made these leak' charges," said Mr. Lawson, "that I expected hell to be lambasted into me by Congress. I was right. As soon as the Senate opened a leather-lunged, sewer-mouthed old blatherskite " Foater Expostulates. "Mr. Chairman, Mr. Chairman, lu must not talk of the Senate or a Sena tor in. that fashion," expostulated Con gressman Foster. Mr. Lawson wu. called to order. It was at this point that Mr Chipor field said ho Aoped the Lawson charges "would have a denouement ,far more reaching than that of 'Frenzier Finance.'" "I am sorry I ever wrote 'Frenzie'l Finance,' " interrupted Mr. Lawson. "It cost me a million or so. I am .... .. !.). ....- ..- "' ' ' " """,."
