The dds ee were f% 1. enter the house drove up In a tum about, WuO wWino TEnM "f r DeteOUves ase admitted yesterday that a third set of kers had been found to the Ulwell hoem. These were on a mantel upstairs. Uiwell's keys were found in his pocket. Mrs. Larsen used hers the morning of the murder to admit her self to the house. Rhoides and "Joe.!' the an who cleaned the stoop, did not have keys. Bares, Elwell's valet and secre tary, also testifed that he did not earry a key to the house, and on sev eral ooeasions has insisted that when the person with the third set of keys was found that the mystery would. be solved. Efforts to locate these keys failed until the other day, when they were stumbled upon In one of the upper rooms. The ownership of these keys seem ed yesterday to hold the secret of the mystery. While there were many rumors thet the police and the Dis trict Attorney had been told who owned this third set of keys, the au .thorities declined to make any in formation regarding them public. . DOOLING If MYWTERIOU. The fact that Assistant District At torney Dooling was away from his office "on an Important lead" in the murder mystery lent color to the re port that the arrest was only a mat ter of hours. Mr. Dooling was asked if the man who, it is-said, in likely to be arrested for the murder had been questioned by the authorities since Friday night. Mr. Dooling's reply was as follows: "Have any of you gentlemen ever bet on a sure thing?" Out of the congeries of newspaper men not one replied in- the affirma tive. "THE MAN" OUT OF CITY. "That's too bad," said Dooling, stroking his chin thoughtfully. Then he said: "I'll give you the telephone number of the man of whom I have been- speaking. Call up his home and see what you can learn." A reporter called up the man's house and was told by a servant. that the man and his family had gone out of town for several days. The maid did not know when they would return. It was recalled that. Mr. Dooling ad said on Friday evening that the man on whom suspicion tests had been under the strictest surveillance for the past few days and that avlose watch would be maintained on him night and day until- he either rids himself: of the cl4ud that hangs over his head or he is arrested. The belief therefore prevails among those who have closely followed the investigation of the murder from the morning of June 11 that the police and representatives from the district attorney's office have incited the sus pected friend of the dead gambler to some qtiet retreat %%ere. safe from the possibility of interruption, they are hematitching mnd em6roidering ,their case. THEY CANNOT BE FOUND. Color for this- belief wad supplied when, shortly after noon, District At torney Swann and his assistants. Al (red J. Talley, Mr. Dooling, and John Joyce retired from their haunts in the Criminal Courts Building in a manner that may accurately be described as tinostentatious. Where they went and when they would return no one knew. If the earth had opened and swal lowed the four county officials they could not have more completely been obliterated from the ken of the per spiring and anxious reporters. The telephone revealed the fact that SIr. Swann and his assistants were not ;t their respective homes or clubs. They were net 'golfing. They were not visiting friends in the country. Wherever they had gone they' were still "there" when darkness began to 4rop over the city. Police heads who have been work ing on the case also mysteriously dis appeared about the sarme tiene the district attorney and, his men slid from sight. No one at police head quartere knew where Ca~ptain Cray, head of the ho de bureau. could be found. George Busby. also of the homicide squad ' and upon Whose shoulders mnuch of the "heavy work" in the case has rested, was not to be found. POLICU OFFICIALU DIUAPPEAN. ' Iven Second Deputy Copamissioner Lahey, who Is known. to be more than mildly interested In solving the mnur der mystery, had deserted his office. This left the score of news gather ers who have hien "sleeping witht" the Elwell story since its inception with a lot of new-laid rumors on their hands. Stince a rumor in a murder case is of no possible mar ketable value until it has been can died by an official investigator, the rumors were emptied ini one basket and the-basket was put in a dark, cool spot Where it will rest until the district attorney and Captain Cray or U~ebtenant Busby, or one or all three or any of their aides, return to their usual haunts.

"DON'T RU," SAYS ilPSHAW. TORWISON Georgia Congressman Asks for Third Term Statement 'From Wilson. Congressman William D. Upshaw, Democrat, of Georgia, yesterday sent aletter to President Wilson seeki-ng to draw from him an expression re .;arding the "third-term" Issue. Say lng that the S4an Francisco conven tion is about to meet, Upshaw adds tyit he "feels constrained to accept Lhe general Invitation given In your Brat Inaugural address and counsel :ith you for the common good." Upshaw's advice In that the Presl lent should not run for a third term knd says the President's declination o run before the gavel falls at the Uemnocratic Convention would have 1% wholesome and composing effect." rhe Georgia member adds: "Permit me to may that I am re nforced in this conviction by com ients that I have heard from your strong supporters In every section of he country. A third term for any Pres. dent in counted by them a dangerous endency in any republic. The feeling gpems regnant everywhere that Washington was right and wine when Is refused a third term, thereby satablishing a precedent for our re publice that has been mandatory bhrough all these years." The Georgia Congressman also an nounced that he was telegraphing William Jennings Bryan at the con -ention advising him an a fellow prohibitionist that the important Lhing about the Democratic platform 4 "not to get a dry plank In, but to keep a wet plank out." As an evan relist-member of the House and lee Lurer for the Anti-Saloon IAague, Up show thinks the drys should accept prohibition an a matter of fact and ot be insisting upon a "dry" plank now that prohibition in here. ie o canan eed o whn y an..a~t~d ....I...

Profiteering Middlemen Held Accountable. NEW YORtK. June 27.--New York city has but one week's supply pf coal on hand. A darkened cIty, with its ibcidental increase in robbery and crimes and violenv. a city with all of its industries (rippled; a gasless city, with thousands of its inhsbitant: unable to cook their food. and an ele vatorless city, with most of the build ings unable to operate their lifts. with great loss to business. are but a few of the dire calamities predicted today by a prominent official of the public service committee, unless action is taken to alleviate the fuel scarcity. One of the worst situations that has ever confranted this city has resulted from the pyramiding of the price of coal by profiteering middlemen. The railroads and the utilities corpora tions are co-operating to the best of their-ability, but they are never cer tain of having more than twenty-four hours' advance supply. "This is one instance where the mine workers are absolutely not to blame." said the official. "It's a hold up without a gun on the part of cer tain persons, who are making exorbi tant profits by selling soft coal for $16 a ton which should bring $8 or $9, or perhapsAI0 at the very most. "There are on hand 171.000 tons of bituminous coal, the sort used in pub lic utilities, when there should be 353,000 tons. This city should be re you' ii can manto toaav.. rrust Co. on LVe.
