Mrs. Ingerlck, the Wounded Woman,
Recovers Consciousness but Is
Unable to Give the Authorities
Any Clue to Perpetrators of Crime
By Associated Press.
MIDDLETOWN, N. V., Oct. B.— All
attempts of the county and local police
officers to clear up the mystery of the
murder of WIHIb and Fred Olney and
little Alice Ingerlck at the Olney farm
near here and the murderous assault
on Mrs. Ingerlck on Friday night have
so far been fruitless. It was believed
this morning that some clue to the
murder had been found, when Alanson
Graham, an old man living near the
Olncy place, was arrested on informa
tion furnished by Mrs. Ingerlck, the
only member of the Olney household
who escaped death, but who was found
terribly Injured and unconscious In the
barn. After being kept In custody all
day and closely examined, Graham to
night conclusively proved his Innocence
and was discharged from custody.
Mrs. Ingerlck was employed by him
as a housekeeper until a few weeks ago,
when she returned to Mlddletown and
soon after went to live with the Olney
brothers. This was said to have been
resented by Graham, who is reporte.l
to have made efforts to Induce her to
return to him, and this with the storlas

Daniel Davis and his wife, who live
near New Vernon, were taken to police
headquarters tonight and closely inter
rogated, and later It was announced
that there apparently was no evidence
that would justify holding them and
that, they would be honorably dis
charged. Mrs. Ingerick recovered con
sciousness for the first time since the
assault this morning, and although not
able to speak succeeded in replying to
the Interrogatories of District Attorney
Rogers by nodding and shaking her
head. What Information .was thus
elicited was not made public, but
County Detective Ward and Chief of
Police Brlnkerhoft at once hastened to
Graham's home and conducted him to
this place, where he was lodged in jail.
Graham took his arrest coolly and said
that he would have no difficulty in
establishing his innocence.
Mrs. Ingerick's husband. Martin,
from whom she was separated several
years ago, was cleared from all sus
picion of connection with the crime
when he came In today from his home
In Wurtsboro and reported to the
authorities. He was unable to throw

engaged other than to write his letter."

fault If you have not done very well,
nor If you have forgotten, for we older
ones do the same thing, but* struggle
along again and resolve to do better.
I want to suggest to you children that
you foster the spirit that prompts us
to speak a kindly word and extend the
hand heartily. Some of us have not
much education, some of us were never
graduated from colleges, but we can
raise crops just the same. Let us culti
vate the spirit of patience, let us culti
vate that crop right here In our own
city, In New York or wherever we
may be. Another crop that we can
cultivate Is charity. Still another crop
that we can raise It that of good will.
Patience, charity" and good will toward

"I feel like a sponge because I have
absorbed so many blessings during my
stay in the city, but I remind you that

Task of Getting Big Dry Dock to the

WASHINGTON, Oct. B.— Naval offi

studying the problem of towing the
big steel dry dock just accepted at
Sparrows Point, Md., from that port
to Cavlte, for which it was designed.
The bureau wrote today to the head
quarters of the Suez Canal company
in Paris asking about the restrictions
of traffic through the canal and for
figures in the way of tolls. So huge
is the structure that it may impede
traffic In the canal and may cost the
government an extravagant price in
In some ways the immense structure,
badly needed as it is in the Philippines,
is a sort of white elephant to the de

require five ships equipped with tow-

market, but must be built to order.
Unless the canal company grants a
considerable reduction from its pub
lished tolls and permits the dock to
sidetrack in the lakes of the canal
while ships pass by the expense will be
If the dock is to be towed around
the Cape of Good Hope the tow must
be started right away, and the towing
machines have yet to be built. A start
later in the season means tne encoun
