In his com munication to Congress Mr. Bates stated: J "I knew Booth as John D.

Booth left with mo a small tintype for his future identification. Tills picture was taken some 12 years after the nssasslnation of Lin coln, and has been Identified by Junius Brutus Booth, oldest nephew! of John Wilkes Booth, as being the1 picture f his uncle. It has also been ldt' '"FmI by the famous actor,1 the late u.;eph Jefferson, nnd many others." About a score of years ago one Christopher C. Bitter, while lying very low in a hospital at Anderson, Ind., Is alleged to have unburdened his conscience by confessing that af ter having been initiated Into tho Knights of the flolden Circle by Booth, he had been pressed (o take part in a kidnaping of President Lincoln, but that before the plan was carried out, Booth .killed the President. Accompanying the as sassin to Philadelphia, Bitter claim ed that he sailed with him for South America, where Booth became "Knos," the famous actor of Latin America. According to another story, one which has gained the most cre dence, Bootli became an Episcopal clergyman and settled in a Georgia town, where lie was visited by his brother, Edwin Booth.

"I guess it will," said the largo manufacturer. "Why, Mrs. Green, ' do you know that If you build that dam and hold back that water, my mills must be idle all summer?

After nearly four years had elapsed the great actor, Edwin Booth, persuaded President Andrew Jackson to allow the pine box to be removed to Baltimore for secret bur ial in Grcenmount Cemetery. Since the black tragedy of 'C5 there have been advanced more than i0 theories to the effect that Wilkes Booth escaped to enjoy, or, at least, experience, life for ii considerable time after his corpse was believed to'orpse, have molded in the grave. General Eckert, who was Assistant Secretary of War when Lincoln was assassinat ed and who later became President of the Western Union Telegraph Company, was once quoted as hav- ver, Albuquerque, San Francisco and Montreal the man who shot Lincoln has been "located" In re cent years. Improbable as the many theories as to his escape may seem, and after all of them have been sifted out and discarded, Wilkes Booth has nevertheless be queathed to the world a mystery that has never been solved. W,here Ho the bones of the man shot in the Garrett barn, whose body was brought to Washington nnd dissected? No one knows. It is generally believed that tho mound alleged to mark the assas sin's grave in Greenmount Cemetery, .Baltlmorp, covers no human re mains.

Such doubts and contradic tions reiterated by men closely con cerned in the search for tho assassin led to the suspicion that greed for tho $7C,000 reward offered for Booth by the Government resulted In the shooting ot another man. A few years ago Laura Ida Booth (Mrs. L. A. Howard), an actress, who has claimed to be the daughter ot Wilkes Booth, announced that her father lived until 1903, when his long-troubled conscience led him to commit suicide at Enid, Okla. A Memphis attorney, Fred L, Bated, who knew tho Enid suicide and who believes him to have been Lincoln's assassin, has published a book in support of the theory. Some years ago Mr. Bates appealed to tho Na tional House of Representatives to definitely determine the Identity ot the umbalmed corpse of the suicide, A skeptic Is a man who won't be lieve ills own conscience.
