Sheriff F. H. Tracer thlH afternoon took Uuhrlol Hlunchl before Attorney-General Arohl- , halct for further Information relative to ' IiIh whereabouts the night of tin- mur- ilt-r. Later In thu afternoon Mrs. (!or- l Iruile Hunt wus taken before the suine ofllcer. The mueh-heraldecl arrest that was to occur this evening had not taken t place up to a Into hour to-night. The mutter of whether Mrs. Hunt wus at i the Parker House the night of the mur der Is established and stories" about whether Long was there seem to dis agree. More, Information relative to thu use of the automobile la developing, It Is claimed. A court reporter being used this afternoon It Is thought thut an ln uuost Is being conducted, that the testi mony which has been given In the matter will be the same when the case comes to trial. It looks now as though an arrcot will occur la the next IS hours. The otllclnls refused absolutely to com ment on the progress of the Investigation, but the continued summoning of wit nesses, taken In conjunction with the peculiar undercurrent which goes with the Investigation of a murder case, Indi cated that tho Inquiry might be coming to a swift denoement. It Is known now that an automobile figured In the case. It will he recalled that Mr. Hroadwell, husband of tho murdered woman, made the statement the day the body was found that he spent the greater part of Sunday morning, May I, seeking his wife. In tho course of his search he went to a house on South Main street, where he had had occasion to go before In search of Mrs. Hroadwell. Standing in the yard of the South Main street house was an automobile, the number of which Mr. Hroadwell took down and later In the day presented to tho ufTlclolB when the finding of Mrs. Broadwell's body started the search for the murderer. The ear In question was a Saxon which a South Main street automobile dealer had let out on trial to a posslblo purchaser, the name of whom Is known to the officials. It Is said this man Is the same person who has been identi fied as having purchnsed food at a store on South Main street Saturday evening, some of the food being meat corre sponding to the partly digested food found in Mrs. Broadwell's stomach after examination by the State Laboratory of Hygiene at liurllngton. This car Is known to have been In the southern end of the town, which is the location of the house that haB been under examination and also is known to have i been near Keith avenue, which Is near the scene of the murder. I In the meantime, the three persons who have been under restraint, Mrs. I Belle Parker and George Long of Bnrrc, I and Gabriel Blunehl of Montpeller, are still In the same position as Tuesday, while Mrs. Gertrude Hunt is held as a witness in the case. Worcester, Mass., May 14. Vermont lost I Its first game of the season here to-day against Holy Cross. Klbhee. the Vermont pitcher worked well, but received poor 1 support. Not until the seventh framo did Holy Cross do any scoring and then two two-baggers, a walk and a bad error by Burns gave the Purple three runs. In the eighth two singles and a sacrifice added another tally for Holy Cross. Vermont , scored m the second when, with one down, Palmer was safe on an error and tallied on Burns' rong triple to right cen ter. Burns, however, did not touch first base and was called out robbing himself of tho hit. Tryon grounded out. In tho fourth Vermont tallied with two out. Smith drove a liner at Gagnon, who made a pretty stop but threw wild to flrBt and Smith went to second, scoring on Palmer's hit to center. Vermont's Inability to hit Gill kept back the runs.
