Cab Driver Companion Sent
to Jail and Lily Ford
Given to Mother
PHOENIX, March 23. That Lily
Kord, the 17-year-old girl who disap
peared so mysteriously last Thursday
afternoon, had been staying with
Claude B. Daniels, a cab driver, was
discovered late Saturday night by Mar
shal Moore. Yesterday Daniel's was
turned over to the county authorities
charged with a statutory oh"ensc.
All day Saturday, after Mrs. W. M.
Kord reported her daughter's disap
pearance to tho police, tho officers con
ducted u strenuous search for the
missing girl. Along in tho evening Of
ficer Foley told the marshal that ho had
heard a rumor indicating! that Lily
Ford was in the room of Daniels above
tli.i UnPTmnn. Tnifptllpv tllPV H'Pllt to
make an investigation and just outside
Daniels' room the marshal nabbed the
cab driver's room mate, who was also
suspected of having had something to
do with Miss Ford's disappearance. An
auilllSMUU which liiv lumn jiijuu iiwiui;
regarding advice he had given Daniels
made Marshal Mooro absolutely certain
that Daniels had taken the girl.
Daniels' room mate was turned over
to Fraley, who immediately started
for the city hall with his prisoner. The
marshal then arrested Daniels whom ho
found in his room. By a peculiar coin
cidence, the olliccrs, their prisoners,
Lily Ford's uncle and tho girl herself
met at Bcrryhili's corner.
Mrs. Ford was notified and there was
a touching rcu'nion scene at tho city
jail. The marshal then started in to
question the girl, asking whether she
had been with Daniels or his room
mate. She was reluctant to answer
and her mother tiied to tell the marshal
that Lily did not have to reply. As
soon as Mrs. Fold was convinced to the
contrary, tho girl admitted that she
had been with Daniels on two different
occasions. She had been staying at tho
Central hotel, sho said.
Daniels, it seems, had tho girl's
clothes. - With "Policeman' llniry . Gas
kin he went to tho Virginia hotel and
tcok them from tho room of a friend,
where they had "been secreted.

Fires Hundred Shots From Automatic Revolver While
Holding Passengers annd Officers at Bay for
Hours Death Ends His Reign of Terror
WILMINGTON, Del., March 23. An exciting battle, In which three men
were killed and several injured, occurred on a northbound Baltimore & Ohio
train today. The fight began at Newark, Del., and ended here. Tho dead
are: Conductor Wellman of Philadelphia, Samuel Wiliams, a colored porter,
and J. H. Bethea of Dillon, S. C.
John Wiley of Wilmington was shot in the hand and leg, and Matthew
Hailey of Wilmington was shot in the leg, while others were injured by
flying bullets.
Bethea, who had been drinking heavily, quarreled with the porter and
shot him through the head, killing him instantly. Conductor Wellman re
monstrated with Bethea, and without a word he shot Wellman through the
heart. Tho murderer then stood off tho passengers until the train reached
Wilmington. When it came into the station a call for officers was sent in,
and a squad of policemen, park guards and a posse of citizens and train
men ran to tho car.
The police called upon Bethea to surrender. In answer he opened fire on
tho police and the crowd with an automatic revolver. Bethea is believed to
have had at least 100 rounds of ammunition, as he held the posse at bay
from 5:17 until 6:35. During this time many shots were fired on both sides,
all the windows of tho car being riddled.
After an hour's battle tho police asked aid from the fire department.
The firemen, barricaded behind trucks and boards, played a stream of water
upon tho windows of the car, and Bethea, half drowned, staggered to the
platform. The police once more called upon him to. surrender, but he replied
with several shots.
As Bethea fired, Captains Evans shot him in tho face. Notwithstanding
his injury ho blazed away again. Patrolman Baughman then opened fire and
struck Bethea in the right arm. The desperate man tried to fire again, but
the bolice closed in and as they took hold of him, he fell dead in the arms
of a patrolman.
All through the battle, the dead porter sat as though looking from the
