ELLINWOOD CHARGED WITH RETAINING COLLEGE FUNDS JEROME ATTACKS HARRY THAW`S DEFENSE FROM UNEXPECTED QUARTER BOARD DECLARES $400,000 IS DUE COOPER COLLEGE Deposes President, Alleging He Has Used Fortune for Self LEFT BY MRS. LANE Could Not Will It to Insti tution Under the State Law ACCUSED MAN DENIES Declares Widow of Founder Intended Property for Him Charged wjiix .withholding more than $500,000 in cash and property said to have been intended for. the bene fit of Cooper Medical College and the Lane Hospital, Dr. C. N. Ellinwood has been deposed as president of the two institutions. The money was left Ellinwood in cash and real estate by Mrs. Lane, widow of the founder of the school and sanatorium, four years ago. the residue of her estate after she had willed one-third of her property, ihen valued at $600,000. to the twin in stitutions. The probate laws precluded a larger endowment, and it is claimed that Ellinwood was to be the medium for the transmission of the entire prop erty. This, it is claimed, he has failed to do. and at a stormy meeting of the faculty and trustees. held . Monday night, he was deposed and Dr. E. R. Taylor chosen to fill the place. Dr. Ellinwood says that his removal was inspired by Jealousy on the part of his associates and denies any under standing that th* money was left him by Mrs. Lane for the college. Dr. Henry "W. Gibbons, dean of the college, made a reluctant affirmation of. the truth of th| report last night. "Yes."* he said, -when seen at his home, 3979 Washington street, "the differences over the withholding of the fund re ceived by Dr. Ellinwood from Mrs. Lane's estate had some Influence In bringing about his removal. But rela tions had been strained for some time and the faculty had lost confidence In the doctor. The matters -were, brought to a climax when he failed to adx-ance funds for the continuance of the Lane lectures, which he had pronounced failures." Dr. "Rlxford. another' faculty man. •was equally reticent s ln discussing the case. It is believed by the faculty of the college that Dr. Lane had intended that his entire estate should go to. Cooper College and the hospital which bears his name and which stands on the block bounded by Sacramento, Clay, Webster and Buchanan "streets.;' "When -Lane' re-, tired from the aytive practice of"med icine he ; had . money in the bank and property* on. Broad way which was, un improved and consequently produced fc no income.

FUGITIVE HALTED BY BULLET PUTS END TO HIS LIFE Charles Moller Commits Sui cide When Brought to Bay by Police f BERKELEY TRAGEDY Alameda Murderer Run Down by College Town Peace Official PURSUER WINGS HIM Criminal's Own Hand Then Avenges the Slaying of Hans Jenson OAKLAND, Feb. i»._After hla left lee had been broken above tbe ankle by \u25a0 bullet from tbe revolver of Chief of Police Ausust Vollmer of Berkeley, Charles H. 31 oiler, who rras win ted for the shooting: of Hans Jennon In Ala meda last Saturday night, fired m ballet Into his brain tonight. .Hla death ended a man hunt In which the custodian-* of .Uameda County's peaer hud been en gaefd for three days. £• The tragedy took place on Slxty«flrst street, near San Pablo avenue, at 8:39 o'clock. Five shots were fired by Voll mer, three into the air and two at the fleeing man. The Berkeley Chief of Police was under the impression for.a time that it wasa bullet from his pis tol that had ended Roller's life, but an examination of the wound when Mol ler's body was taken to the Morgue dis closed that the right ear. where tha leaden slug had entered, was split in several directions and powder burned, while the hair near the ear was singed. showing that the weapon had been held close to the head. Chief Vollmer Va3 sixty feet from Moller when he fired upon him. i- ASKS FOR RENDEZVOUS Information given to the/, Alameda police by Frank Thompson of that city provided the clew that put the police on the track of Moller. *Moller had telephoned to Thompson this afternoon asking the latter to meet him this evening at a saloon at Sixty-fifth street and San. Pablo avenue. Chief of Police John Conrad of Alameda. with Detec tives • William Wahmuth and. G. H. Brown of that city and Chief of Police Vollmer. Detective Henry Jamleson and Policeman *H. Frazer of Berkeley formed the. posse that was distributed in the neighborhood of Sixty-fifth street and San Pabib- avenue to await the coming of Moller. Chief Vollmer en countered Moller walking northward on San Pablo avenue, near Sixty-flrst street. _"I want you, old man," said the Chief. '"Who are you?" asked Moller. "I am Vollmer." the Chief replied. Moller turned and ran, shouting, "Don't come near me or I'll kill you • and myself too." * As. the hunted man fled eastward on ' Sixty-first street he drew a revolver. \u25a0 Vollmer. who was in pursuit, shouted. "Stop, or I will have to shoot you." VOLLMER OPENS FIRE The Chief fired three times over the fugitive's head and then aimed low, firlng.two shots as Moller turned as if to give battle. One of. the bullets struck Moller in the left leg near. 1 the ankle and.it is presumed that he then thrust "the muzzle of his own weapon Into hts. right ear and pulled the trig ger. One shell in the cylinder of his revolver was empty. " In Moller' s pocket's were found a box of cartridges and a rambling statement, dated "today, giving a disconnected ac count of - the " shooting at his home in Alameda last Saturday night. He blamed his sister-in-law, Mrs. Peirce, for, v the trouble and claimed that the shooting of Hans Jenson was acci dental. The police believe that Moller In tended to kill Thompson, who was his landlord, and himself at the rendezvous tonight. 898H9 jTtie killing of Jenson was the sequel to an affray in the Moller home. Jenson haVing interfered to save Moller's wife from a' beating at his hands.
