Montpeller, liny II. 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. '
