far Lewis' story does not tally with
his movements, checked through
other sources.
Investigatiun this morning brought
out that Conductor Dawson, of the
Washington and Old Dominion rail
way, saw Lewis alight from his car
at Jackson Station at 4:37 Thursday
afternoon, a few hours preceding the
crime. Lewis declares that he did not
leave Washington until 7 o'clock and
that he rode direct to Glendale, a few
miles above Jackson, reaching there
about 8 o'clock.
Police Magistrate Clifton Laugh
lin, of McLean, interviewed Dawson
this morning. He in also checking
up on Lewis' statement that a col
ored man named Jeff Carter, em
ploy* of the Sewer Department in
Washington, got on the car with
him in Washington at 7 o'clock.
Up to noon today Carter had not
been located.
Attorney Farr cross-examined
Lewis this morning.
"Your story and what we have
found out don't jibe," Attorney
Farr told Lewis.
"I'm sorry it don't, but that's the
truth," retorted Lewis.
The arrest of Hill was made
shortly after noon. The young col
ored boy lives within a mile of the
Hawken home and he answers
somewhat to the assailant's de

Employed at Dairy.
According to Lewis' story he is
employed at Wise Brothers dairy, at
3208 N street, and on the day of tte
crime worked until 6:45. catching the
7 o'clock car at Thirty-sixth and M
street for his home in Virginia.
Inquiry at the dairy this morning,
however, failed to show any record
sf Lewis employment there.
"If Lewis worked for us, it was
under some other -name," Mr. Wise
said this morning. The majority of
their laborers, he said, finished about
3 o'clock in the afternoon.
Lewis is regarded by Magistrate
Laughlin as "a bad character." Sev
eral years ago he was sent to the
penitentiary for slashing the throat
of a conductor on the Washington
and Old Dominion line. He has been
out of jail but a few month.
The authorities planned to go to
Glendale this morning to make the
arrest. Magistrate Laughlin. how

cotton futures." Caraway said. "One
kind is legitimate and the other in

with their fingers crossed and prices
responded accordingly. When they
crossed their fingers the purchases
were fictitious and no cotton ever

Bar Association Will Request
Divorce Probe by New
Grand Jury.
Judge Robinson Moncure, famous
"Little Reno" divorce magistrate,
today will have his bucket of white
wash taken away from hin, and the
appointment of a special grand jury
to probe the Alexandria divorce -x
pose will be asked by the special
bar association committee which
has been investigating the divorce
evil for the past eight weeks.
Two recommendations, of a maior
nature, it was learned today, will
be made in the committee's report,
which will be given out at 2 o'clock
this afternoon, at the final session
of the committee.
The first is that Judge Moncure
will be asked by the committee to
dismniss the "hand picked" grand
jury, which it is alleged would con
duct the probe in behalf of the
famous divorce judge, hearing much
evidence aa he directed, rejecti'ng
such ag he desired, and which would
have received their instructions
from the judge.
The second is that Judge Moncuare
resign in favor of a special ludge,
to be named by the governor, in
order that a regularly appointed
grand jury, might conduct a
thorough divorce probe, before
which certain witnesses, outside of
the court's jurisdiction, would vol
untarily appear and give their
Judge to Refuse.
Neither of these recommendatIons,
i. is declared, will be followed Lay
the judge who has declared that
he will conduct his own probe and
sit in judgment of his own conduct.

magistrate refuse, however, to step
aside and permit a thorough investi
gation, an argeal 1il be taken to

that of any qther country.

"The paramount reason why rec

water-& losing battle-was told
here today on the arrival of the
submarine chaser 154, which met
the tank steamship William Greene
off this port this morning and
brought to shere the half-dead form
of Robert Moore, pilot of the Ill
fated Miss Miami.
Two Jump INte Water.
The story of how the big flying
boat kept afloat for nearly forty
eight hours after being forced to de
scend on account of a broken pro.
pelier, and how the five passengers
became exhausted through exposure
and panic, two jumping into the
water to end their misery, and the
story of how two women died in his
arms. was related by the pilot.
The story was not gleaned from
Moore when he reached here. He
was in such serious condition that
he was taken to a hospital for treat
ment. The story of the fight for
life was relayed to Miami through
members of the crew of the tank
steamship, which picked up Moore
from the wreck of his plane last

The submarine chaser, In oom
mand of Captain Jones, reached
Miami at 10 a. m.. and the pilot,
then delirious, was taken to River

E. T. Belichambers, head of the
company which operated the Miss
Miami with other boats, was unable
to see Moore.
The fate at Moore's five paseng
ers-Mr. and Mrs. A st Bulte and
Mr. and Mrs. Law oe E. Smith,
of Kansas City, and J. S. Dick
son, of Memphis, was told by the
captain and member. of the crew of
the tanker. It was related to them
incoherently by Moore after he was
picked up.
The Miss Miami broke a propeller
blade soon after leaving Miami early
Wednesday. Moore told them, and
was forced down. It rode the waves
safely, however, and drifted north
ward in the gulf stream. No trouble,
he said, developed until Thursday
morning, when something struck the
keel of the boat and it began to leak.
Men and women took turns then
balling water.
Thursday night one of the women
became craned and jumped over
board. Her name was not given by
Moore. Shortly afterward one of
the men, presumably her husband.

seemed to depress the remaining two
women of the party. They gradu
