They believe tho murdorcr is Josrph Kills of Richmond, Va. Investigation of the inurdor of Schlansky fhowed that it had been coolly planned, executed with a cruel precision, and tho escape so cunningly carried out as to throw off suspicion temporarily. After murdering tho merchant tho man discarded a collar spotted with Hood, walked to a nearby store where ho purchased another and then re turning, to tho lobby of tho hotel wherein his victim lay dead, sat for an hour or more. Iato in the afternoon the slayer re turned to his room and then going t the union depot secured his suitcase from the check room and is believed to have caught an east bound train. In each town where, the man ope rated his scheme was th same. lie would register at a hotel under an assumed namo, rail on either one of the smaller clothing merchants or a second-hand dealer, explaining that he had some samples he must get out of his possession at once, asked the dealer to go to his room. Once in the man's room the procedure nearly al ways wan the same. The victim either was struck down or 0-"d i-the point of a revolver to ?T t t f ng bound and parsed. Tfs hL-lu-ables were stolen .and the robber leav ing the merchant's body to bo discov ered by hotel employes, departed. In every case that was called to the attention of the police Tuesday, it was said that the boldness with which tho robber worked, had thwarted suspi cion until his victim was found.

TRAINMEN TELL OF , FINDING SULLIVAN According to Their Testimony They lunci Little Blood ATtcr Bis Tim Was Killed. NKYV YORK, opt. 2 4.

Dist. Atty. Croehl, who conducted an inquiry into the death of "Big Tim". Reports that the congressman's doath was not accidental and that he had m t foul play at the hands of thugs who placed his body on the rails to hide the crime led to the in estigation. A policeman in the morgue identified the body Sept. 1 ?. after it had laid nearly two weeks un recognized. The trainmen were witnesses before Mr. tlroehl, who examined also the nurses who wore with the congress man during his last da.vs. The prose cutor said he would not decide until after the inquest next Monday was over to ask for a supreme court order to hae the body exhumed to deter mine the cause f death.

Miller retained an idea that he was still head of the progressive party in South Head, the resolution which was adopted at a meeting of progressive voters, includ ing representatives of each of the precincts in the city, should dispel it. The action was taken by the pro gressives who refused to "bolt" to the citizens' movement and who resented the attempt on the party of some of the party members to turn the entire party over to the "citizens." At a meeting of the city central committee at which the "bolters" claimed they were In the majority, although the regular progressives denied that, a resolution stating that the progressive party endorsed and would support the citizen's -movement was passed. When this resolution was made public the party members who refused to be betrayed organized, nominated a city ticket at the regular primary and then demanded the resignations of the city chairman and the commit teemen who refused to support the ticket. It was explained that this was. a mere act of courtesy inasmuch as under the rule of the party, the otttc ers had disqualified by deserting. The resolution which has Just been passed formally deposes the old com mittee members and Installs real progressives In their place. It fol lows: Resolved. That whereas Mr. William E. Miller, the acting city chairman of the progressive party, as well as certain precinct committeemen, are now openly supporting the citizen's ticket in the city of South Bend, and hivo refused to support, and arc not now supporting the nominees of the progressive party, and whereas it is essential to the success of the pro gressive ticket that the coming city campaign be in charge of a commit tee that is loyal to the candidates nominated by the progressive party, therefore, be it rrsolved that the fol lowing named persons are hereby elected to represent their respective precincts in the coming city campaign, to wit: First ward 1st precinct. Richard Kuehn; 2nd precinct. Ralph Kling; 3d precinct. John Valentine; 4th precinct, Ira M. Ullery; 5th precinct, Alvin I. Rogers. Second ward 1st precinct, John Kitkanski; 2nd precinct John Sta chynski; 4th precinct, Edward Gorka. Third ward 1st precinct, Roland Hildebrand; 2nd precinct, Joseph Vor ta; "d precinct. Clint.

Charles Hunsberger; 2nd prvcinct, Charles An derson; 3d precinct, J. H. Clements; 4th precinct. Arthur Hoffman; 5th precinct. John Kowatch. .Said committee are hereby author ized to organize by electing a chair man and such other officers as are necessary and to take charge of the progressive campaign in the coming city election. REPORT OF THE LOBBY PROBE ABOUT READY Question as to Further Action Airaiiist Hep. McDcrmott Kapected to be Settled Soon, WASHINGTON, Sept. 2 4. The re port of the house lobby committee probably will be submitted by Chair man Garrett during the present week. It will be a voluminous document, dealing in detail with the thousands of pages of evidence given before the committee. One part of the report that Is troubling members of the committee is that concerning Rep. McDermott of Illinois. Some of the committee men are said to hold that the varioas charges Martin M. Mulhall, former '"lobbyist" for the Nationad Associa tion of Manufacturers, and I. S. Mc Michael, one time chief page of the house, made against McDermott, were not sufficiently substantiated to warrant further action. It is expect ed, however, that the committee will at least lay before the house the fact that McDermott borrowed from a Washington association of liquor dealers during the pendency of strin gent District of Columbia liquor legis lation. If further action should be deemed necessary by the house the matter necessarily would be handled by some other committee. NAME TOO SUGGESTIVE Dr. It. II. Stinger Wants It Changed to Stonier. TRAINING SCHOOL GETS NEW QUARTERS .INDIANAPOLIS. Sept. 2 4. Dr. Raymond H. Stinger of Indianapolis, saying that his name was too sug gestive for a physician, Tuesday asked the Marion county circuit court to al low him to change "I" to an "E" and be Dr. Stenger hereafter. The doctor told the court that he has a sign in front of his oflice and often hears persons passing laugh at his name and remark that they are afraid to consult him for fear of being Htung. He said that he realized that for a person to le ttung a stinger must be used and that he did not like to be connected with the point. The court took the request under advisement. DIES FISHING.
