MAN MADE CRIMINAL
BY BLOW ON THE HEAD
Police of New Jersey Town Diag
nose Remarkable Case of
ROMERVILLE, N. J., May 17.—That
the blow from a baseball on the head
can change a man of the highest moral
rectitude into a daring and expert
criminal, is the view expressed by the
police in their explanation to the court
of the charges brought against William
Miller of Karitan, N. J.
According to the police diagnosis.
Miller's arrest on a charge of larceny
lias brought to light a remarkable
case of dual Identity corresponding in
many points t.> the story of "Dr. Jekyll
and Mr. Hyde."
The police vouch for the statement
that before his accident In the baseball
game, several weeks ago. Miller was a
mo l"l in the community. After that
accident, his friends say, he frequently
had periods of apparent aberration,
when he would become morose, shun
their company and disappear from
their view for several hours. When
he returned he seemed to be again
happy and was unable to recall any
thing that happened in the meantime.
During one. of these periods of aber
ration, the police say, they caught
Miller robbing a railroad ticket office,
and that at another time they charge
him with looting the cash registers in
a local department store.
Miller declares he has no recollection
of thcs<> acts, and the police are con
vim ed he Is not shamming.
"This prisoner's plight is more psy
chological than criminal," was the ex
planation of the chief of police to
Justice Kitchen. "His impulse to
steal Is brain trouble that has resulted
from an accident that he suffered on
the ball field. In his normal state he
Beems entirely removed from the
criminal acts of his other ego."
A committee of New York experts
will examine Miller before his case is
taken up again in the court.

former superior knew about the
preparation of the memorandum and
participated in a conference on the
subject. Furthermore, he said, Lawler
.had told Private Secretary Carr in his
presence that he had left a copy of the
memorandum with Mr. Ballinger.
TAINTED INTO RAGE
Under cross-examination by Mr.
Brnndeis. Lawler was reminded of
various requests for the document and
information bearing on it, which the
attorney had sent to .Secretary Ballin

ler had informed the secretary in each
instance that he had supplied all the
matter bearing on the Glavis charges

"Didn't you discuss with Mr. Carr
the obvious purpose of my requests?"
"Didn't you discuss with Carr how
you could evade my requests?"
"Didn't you know you were evad
"That statement is an Rhsolute false

his inquisitor with flashing eyes.
Mr. Brandeis instantly appealed to
the committee to reprimand the wit
"If my remark has been offensive, I
withdraw It and apologize to the com

Mr. Lawler said ho had burned the
original draft of the memorandum he
had prepared for the president.
"I was confident," he said, "that

"Yes. He came in later. He's the

This reference to the champions of

is a good one, and it is all the better,
as the west has never seen anything

this plan could be carried out the event

The comet will not be nearest to the
earth at the time of transit, but clos
est approach will occur a day or two
later. The exact instant now is under
computation. In a statement given
out tonight Director Leuschner said:
"According to photographs taken
here May 11 the tail of the comet was
£,000,000 miles in diameter at the dis
tance from the nucleus at which the
earth will cross it, but according to
information received from Lick ob
servatory the tall is diminishing rap
idly in absolute width and length, as
Is always the case. after a comet has
passed its perihelion.
"Photographs taken at Lick yester
day give the estimate that the width
of the tail through which the earth
will pass will have shrunk to 1,000,000
miles. On the basis of the latter fig
ure it will take the earth about six
hours to pass through the tail, the 1
relative velocity of the particles of the
tail and the earth being approximately
fifty miles a second. We may expect
to enter the tail at about 6 o'clock in
the afternoon and to come out of it
at about 11 o'clock at night, Pacific
time "The earth will not pass exactly
through the center of the tall, but the
deviation is so slight that it ■ will not
affect materially the duration of
transit through the tail. Theoretically
the tail will stretch over 180 degrees
of the sky, from horizon to horizon,
Just before and after transit is seen
from the earth. It probably would be
faintly discernible in the southwest
ern sky if the moon were out of the
way. The phenomena, therefore, will
pass entirely unnoticeable by the peo
ple on the American continent, and It
is doubtful whether the observers In
the orient, for whom the transit the
oretically is visible, will observe It."

lack of warm sunshine.
Over the cotton growing states them
was sufficient sunshine, hut the weath

to the Pacific coast, also, tho weather
was generally unfavorable, except over
Washington and portions of Oregon
and Idaho, where warm showers and
sunshine were beneficial. Over most

southerly portions it was too dry.

POMONA, May 17.—There will prob
ably be no official celebration of the
Fourth of July here this year. For a
time It was thought that the local
lodge of Elks would take general
charge of a monster celebration, but
that order decided that the matter
should be handled by the board of
trade or Business Men's association.
If at all. As these latter bodies have
taken no action the matter is receiving
no attention. Chino will be the only
town in this locality to observe the
day with a special celebration.
