.437t57 1 FRIAAGS 8 90 RDAY, AUGUAT 6, 1920. ROK MAY LINK SLAYINGOF 2 Police Believe it Will Prove Campbell Also Killed Mrs. Gleason. Although vigorously maintaining his inneonce of any coanection with the attack last March on Mrs. Bessie Gleason, of Nicholson avenue north east, William Henry Campbell. the twenty-two-year-old negro who con feased to having beaten to death with a buidgeon Mrs. GertrUde garrison Mann, admitted last night that he tied his handkerchief around Mrs. Mann's throat to stop her from screaming when he attacked her. The similarity of the attack made on Mrs. Gleason by the negro who assaulted and robbed her last March has caused the police to suspect that Campbell, and not Louis Randall. an other Washington negro, who is serv e ing a .forty-five-year sgtence at the Federal prison at Atlanta. Ga., may " have been her assailant. Campbell has lied all through his exagInations by the police and only admitted being the felon who attack ed Mrs. Mann and who had robbed a number of Washington homes when confronted with stolen jewelry and other information obtained by the po lice. It is because of the fact that the negre who attacked Mrs. Gleason tied a cord about her throat, struck her with a club, and robbed her in a manner almost similar to the assault on Mrs. Mann that the police are in clined to believe Campbell, and not Randall, attacked Mrs.. Gleason. For more than an hour Campbell was questioned about the attack made on Mrs. Gleason. He was toll that if Randall was not guilty, he (Campbell) should not let an in nocent man suffer, but the negro per sists in his innocence. The piece of cord taken from Mrs. " Gleason's throat is in the hands of 'the police and they are attempting to trace it to Campbell. If anyone can be found who will state that Campbell was seen with a cord on the day Mrs. Mann was attacked, the police believe they will be able to get an admission from the negro. Lieut. L. J. Stoll and Detective George Darnall, of Tenth precinct, yesterday went to Baltimore and re covered a wrist watch stolen from irs. Mann by Campbell. The negro in his first statement to the police asserted that he had dropped the watch whila. fleeing trois thea.cene of the attack op Mt. Menn. Ydeter day, however, stated he had given the watch to Rosie Douglas, a Balti more woman, and the timepiece was taken from her last night. With the confession of Campbell that he attacked Mrs. Mann. of the recovery of the music teacher's diamond ring and wrist watch, Cap tain Thomas Judge, of Tenth pre cinct, said today the police had clinched its case against Campbell. A score of residents of northwest Washington yesterday went to the Tenth precinct police station and identified jewelry which the police recovered from Campbell's home and from his mother, Emma Dixon, and other women. "Campbell has an excellent mem ory," said Captain Judge. "He can relate with minute detail just where, when and how he robbed houses, and even recall the exact jewelry that he stole. He is a born criminal-daring and shrewd. The police have made a great catch in getting him into cus tody. He has been a terror to the residents of Washington for more than six months, looting and robbing homes and frightening people who discovered him operating in their homes. With his arrest, I believe there will be a big drop in robbery reports to the police." Realizing his predicament. Camp bell told the police today that he hopes they will get him into court and have "It over with." "I'll face the nusic now that you've caught me. I hope it will soon be over," he said.

The cost of labor in the construc tion of buildings in Washington has increased more than $200 per hour within the past six months, according to the new wage scales announced by the Building Trades Council today. This does not mean that it costs $200 more per hour to construct one building, but embraces the employ ment of building trades workers as a whole on various jobs throughout the city. The new scales of the Bilding Trades Council show an approximate yearly Increase in wages of half . million dollars. Within the past sev cral months the scales of practically all craftsmen of the council came up for readjustment, and in most in stances advances were agreed upon. $0MN 3NCRBASEB 3$ PERK CHAT. Some of these wage increases amounted to as much as 30 per cent. while the average ran from about 10 to 15 per cent. Contractors, builders and workmen reached agreements on the new wags scales witp little difficulty. There were sevetai threats of strikes, but none mnaterialised to any serious ex tent. The common laborers went on strike about three months ago anei some of them are still out. The steamfitters, who asked an Increase from 92% cents to $1.25 per hour. failed in getting their demands, and have been on strike since July 1.

The scale of the former ex pires August 16 and they are asking an advance of from 98 cents to $1.25 per hour.

No. 1, American Legion, at a meeting last night. reiterated disapproval of the attack of "The Reclassiflcationist." official publication of the joint con ference on reclassification, on the employment of army and naval officers in civilian service of the Gov ernment. Several weeks ago, the post took similar exception to such an ittack. in an answer to which "The Reclassi ficationist" declared that it was heartily in accord with the post's de mands that the Government give preference to former service men, but pointed out that it, was contrary to all Government regulations to employ officers, still retaining their rank, in civilian positions. The post, in a resolution condemn ing the attitude of the Reclassifica tionhit, declared that such an attitude "not pnly was an effort to impugn the intentions of the President in the dis charge of his duties. but was a reflec tion on the ability and conduct of of ficers and men who have been espe cially intrusted with the duties apper taining to the Bureau of War Risk and its work."
