With Two Revolvers Fires at

Philadelphia, Jan. 28. — Georgs
Vincent I.imbo, a religious maniac,
who said that he wanted only to
cut oft all electrical power to release
Christ, shot up the Rapid Transit
Cojapar.y'c powerhouse at Thirteenth
jnd Mount Vernon streets yesterday
Ana killed one employe, after which
re shot and killed two policemen
and wounded half a dozen other
persons who joined in his pursuit.
After a long chase. Limbo was
finally cornered by two policemen,
killed one of them, but was shot
and knocked down by the other, and
then beaten by a crowd before be
ing taken to the Garretson Hos
Limbo was finally cornered at
Nineteenth and Olive streets by Po
liceman Frank Herron. of the Twen
tieth and Hamilton streets station,
and John Knox, the motorcycle po
The dead victims of the maniac,
who showed such method and skill
in his madness that the detectives
believe he may also be responsible
for the recent bomb explosions in
this city, are:
George R. Dingwall, a reserve po
liceman. of 243 South Fifth street.
| one of the transferred Fifth ward
policemen who two days ago testi
' tied against Mayor Smith.
John Knox, a motorcycle police
man. of 2519 South street, who cor
; nered the maniac after a chase of
several blocks.
Thomas Hallloran. a powerhouse
fireman, of 2310 Cleveland street.
Among the wounded are:
Michael Rendell. a powerhouse
fireman of 1421 Cambridge street,
with a bullet in his brain and not
! expected to recover at the Hahne
mann Hospital.
Harry Clark, of 1331 Fairmount
' avenue: shot through the cheek; in
• a serious condition at St. Joseph's
1 Hospital.
Samuel Walton, reserve police
; man. of 3655 North Sixth street; run
i down by a motorcycle in the chase;
not seriously injured: at the Hahne
mann Hospital.
William Kelly. Sixteenth and Nor
ris streets: slight shot wound in left
| leg; treated at Garretson Hospi
' tal.
James Robinson, powerhouse op
erator. of 412 North Forty-second
street: struck on head with revol
ver: treated at Garretson Hospital.
When Herron and Knox closed in
on the maniac, who held a revolver
in each hand, he pushed one against
each policeman. The weapon held
against Knox went off, and the bul
let pierced the policeman s heart.
The revolver pressed against Police
man Herron failed, and Herron fired
his own revolver into the groin of
the madman and then clubbed him
on the head, knocking him down
and disarming him before taking
him to the Garretson Hospital,
where the physicians say he is eith
er insane or shamming madness.
He refused to tell his name, but
admitted that he roomed at 919
North Eleventh street and v,-ent by
the name of "Omega of Christ.''
Former Church Service Disturber
Papers found in his room showed,
however, that the maniac went by
the name of George Vincent Limbo,
and under that name he was quick
ly identified by the city detectives as
a religious maniac who was placed
in the Philadelphia Hospital for the
Insane in 1917 after he had disturb
ed several religious meetings.
Limbo, for two years, broke in
repeatedly on church services by en
tering the church and walking down
the aisle, bearing a large crucifix,
and chanting lowly to himself. He
was repeatedly put out of churches,
but never exhibited the slightest vio
lence when led out and was there
fore regarded as a harmless fana
tic. Finally, however, he became
boisterous and hysterical when he
was ordered out of a church and
was then committed to the Phila
delphia Hospital.
In the days when he broke in on
church services, Linibo wore a
beard, which gave him a striking
resemblance to the conventional pic
ture of Christ, a fact which added
weirdness to his claim that he was
the son of Christ.
During his period of restraint at
the Phtladelphin Hospital, Umbo
mutilated himself. How he got out
of the Philadelphia Hospital is not
known by the city detectives, but
they are also endeavoring in their
investigation to learn if he is the
insane man from Philadelphia who
last week appeared in Washington,
where he attacked two women, kill
ing one, and then made his es
cape. . .
"X am a Je<v, but I have embraced
Christianity and have planned for
several years to do just one thing,
shut off all electrical power," he told
the police, who found a notebook in
his pocket with the address of all
the Rapid Transit Company's power
plants. "I never worked but lived
with my mother until she died, six
i years ago. She left me *2,000, and
! i have lived off that ever since, very
economically. 1 ate only fish and
drank coffee and water. But to-day
my money was all spent. I had noth
ing more to live on or live for, so I
started out to do this one big thing
for which I had prepared all my
l f e. , A
"I went out this morning and
bought two revolvers in West Phil
adelphia. I paid *10.50 for one
and *11.50 for the other. Then I
bought 100 cartridges in South street
and started out on my mission. I
carried mv revolvers for defense
onlv. I did not want to get caught
until I had put all the powerhouses
out of commission. I would not
have shot anybody at the first power
house if they hadn't thrown stones
at me. Then the policemen came,
and I had to *shoot to get away."
His story about buying the revol
vers and cartridges, the detectives
verified readily enough, and his
study for destruction was also veri
fied by a search of his room. It was
filled "with books, religious, scientific
and anarchistic books in English,
Italian and German.
One note in a diary kept by the
maniac refers to "three accidents in
Philadelphia," and on this point he
was questioned repeatedly by the
detectives, who think it refers to
the three bombs exploded here re
cently. But the maniac answered all
questions about the "three acci
dents" with a smile and with a, "It
doesn't matter," switched off to an
other subject.

Conferees Agree on Most
Features of Revenue Bill
Reach Agreement on Wir Excess Profits Rates; Possi
bility of Deadock and Failure of
the Bill Pass
Washington, Jan. 2S.—The on- 1
ference report on the war reveiue
bill is expected to be presented to
the Senate and House late this wiek
and the conferees hope that it fill
be adopted by both bodies i*xt
week and the bill sent to the Presi
dent at Paris for his approval.
This seemed evident last nkht
after a basis for complete agite
ment on the bill was reached by
the Senate and House conforms.
Senator Simmons, chairman of .he
Senate managers, announced tjat
virtually all important questions re
maining in dispute, including he
war excess profits rates, had bjen
agreed upon and that all possibilty
of a deadlock and failure of the (ill
had passed.
Announcement of the confereice
agreement on the war profits aid
other basic disputes was deferiid,
but it was said that it would be
made Wednesday or Thursday. w*?n
a reprint of the bill as finally agreed
to will be completed.
Eliminate Mail Amendment
The basis of agreement on he
measure was upon three bittejly
contested questions war excjss
profits taxes this year, the Senate
allowances to oil and gas interests
and the Senate amendment to Je
peal the existing zone system of s*:-
ond class mall rates. It was leaned
that in harmonizing differences in
these basic disputes, the conferis
agreed to an increase of the Senile
war excess profits rates, adopted tie
oil provision substantially as pr
vided by the Senate, and eliminatid
the second class mail amendment.
The agreement on war exoas
profits rates for 1919. it was state(,
provided for retention of the Senae
rate of 30 per cent, on corporation'
net income in excess of credits aid
not in excess of 20 per cent, of i
vested capital; for increase from if
to 65 per cent, on income in excek
of 20 per cent., and for retentid
of the 80 per cent, tax on war proi

urged by Representative Kitchil
and other of the House managers.
