the crime.
McShea yesterday surrendered to
the authorities who released him
after two hours examination in the
office of District Attorney Woolwinc.

Council Amends Original
Grade Crossing Expert
Measure Last Night
Two Resolutions Passed Over
Mayor’s Veto by Alder -
men--Reasons Given
After amending the original res
olution which Mayor William C.
Wilson had vetoed naming Louis P.
Booz, Jr., resident engineer in tilt
grade crossing elimination matter
and delegating to iiim certain pow
ers, the aldermen last night passed
the resolution over the mayor's
veto by a vote of live to one. The
appointment of William Hallalian as
clerk in the police department was
also passed over the mayor's veto by
a like vote.
The amended resolution in the
Bcoz case does not state the salary
to he paid the engineer, although
City Attorney Leo Cloldbevger'i
opinion on the matter was to tin
effect that, it Is illegal to make sued
appointment without designating tin
[salary to be paid. Two other import
ant changes are made in tiro amend
ed resolution, however. The won
••resident" engineer is discarded ami
in its place is used "expert” engi
neer. The power originally given li
Mr. Booz to engage expert advice is
withdrawn, although a clause is
added authorizing him lo prepan
plans and specifications and such
other engineering data for the prop
-or presentation of the case."
The amended r -solution. as passed
by die aldermen with the "aye" votes
of all the JJumoivatic members and
the "nay” vote of the only Ilopub
lican present, John fcloiield, reads as
"Owing to the necessity of imme
diate and careful consideration ol
(lie nla". of elevating the grade
crossing.'* as presented by the Cen
tra, Railroad of New Jersey, be It
and it is hoieby
“resolved. That Louis 1*. Booz. Jr.,

Herman Reder Held Up in
Alley of Home at 68 State
Herman Keder, of 68 State street, i
one of the proprietors of the Ditmas
and Crescent theatres, was held up I
by two armed men last night short-,
ly before midnight and robbed of
$49u. Tho men perpetrating the j
holdup escaped immediately in an ;
automobile standing at a nearby !
corner and no trace of them lias
been discovered since.
The robbery took place near
Lewis street and Kearny avenue as
Keder was walking toward the back
of his home through an alleyway.
The men attacked their victim, hur
riedly searched him, and then ran
out of the yard, disappearing along
Lewis street in the direction of
: Kearny avenue. An automobile
seen standing near the corner all
through the evening was later found
I to be missing and it is established
that the bandits escaped by this
The occurrence was brought to
the attention of the police depart
ment when a telephone wall from
Stacey Coutts informed Sergeant
George Kozusko that shots were be
I ing fired in that vicinity and that
! a holdup' had been pulled.
! Chauffeur William Clooney was
! sent down with the atrol wagon
and he 'ound an excited knot of peo
' pie gathered at Kewis street and
! Kearny avenue, one of whom told
j him of the holdup. It was found
' that a Kuick car had been standing
'! at tlie loot of Kearny avenue since
last night and it had disappeared a
few minutes after the roidup. The
supposition is that the machine was
; left there by tho bandits as a means
of escape and that they lay in wait
for Mr. Keder as ho came home
from the theatres with the money
taken through tho box others.
Officer Clooney made tour of the
patrolmen on post and told them
to look for tho. automobile bearing
