Investigation By Baltimore
Sleuths Fails To Shed New
Light On Brawl
Further investigation conducted by
Col. Charles I). Gaither, of Baltimore
city, into the gun tight that had a
tragic ending in the early morning
hours of July 1G at Belle Grove Inn. a
resort tn the upper county, failed to
shed any new light upon the affair.
Col. Gaither was asked by State’s
Attorney James M. Munroe, of this
county, to take up the investigation at
that end of the line, especially in view
of the fact that six persons who sus
tained gunshot or other wounds dur
ing the pistol brawl, were still under
treatment at Baltimore hospitals
States Attorney Munroe this morning
received Col. Gaither’s report, and im
mediately notified Sheriff Harry T.
Levely to have the coroner’ Jury, of
which Police Justice William S.
Welch 1s acting coroner, reconvened
on Monday afternoon at 4 o’clock.
Sleuths Put On Case
Acceding to the request of State’s
Attorney Munroe, Col. Gaither detail
ed Detective Lieutenant Koche and
Sergeant Smyth to visit the wounded
in hospitals. The testimony given by
them, according to the report submit
ted, was precisely along the same line
I as that of the 40 odd men and women
who were questioned by State’s Attor
ney Munroe at sessions of the Cor
oner’ Jury held last week. They all
admitted having been at the inn, de
scribed how they received bullet
wounds, or were struck by bottles,
but declared they knew absolutely
nothing of the identity of the per
sons who started the shooting.
In the absence of any evidence
tending to fix the Identity of the men
wlio precipitated the gun fight, with
the re-assembling of the coroner’s in
quest on Monday, the presumption is
that there will be nothing for that
body to do but to frame a verdict to
the effect that Michael Cadora, who
was shot and killed, came to his death
from gunshot wounds fired by one or
more persons unknown to the jury.

: Understood President And Secre
tary Weeks Have Approved
That Design For Tomb
y WASHINGTON. July 28— It is un
e derstood that President Harding and
j Secretary Weeks have given their ap
? proval to a design for a plain, white
x marble sarcophagus to mark the grave
j of the unknown soldier at Arlington
instead of the elaborately designed
, thirty-foot shaft which was first con
tern plated.
The Fine Arts Commiission. how
f ever, has not given its sanction and
_ will not do so until Thomas Hastings,
the architect of the amphitheatre at
Arlington, returns to the United
Stutes from England. There is a
strong belief that the present digni
’ lied and simple granite pase in which
the American soldier lies is sufficient
• to mark his resting place, and It may
be that neither the sarcophagus nor
the shaft will be erected. Fears are
1 expresed that additions to the tomb
will mar its dignity and break the
classic and beaut if ill outlinies of the
, ampiptheatre. The suggestion has
. teen made that a flat, bronze coat of
I arms should be laid on the great
j stone, which rests above the soldier's
r coffin and that nothing more should
. be done.
, The new design, which the Presi
, dent and the Secretary of War are
said to have approved, was made by
. Colonel G. H. Penrose of the Quar-
I termaster’s Corps, and is about five
. feet high. Its only decoration would
he the national coat of arms in
bronze. On the end of the tomb, fac

Virtually the last obstacle confront
ing the construction of a new bridge
across South river, between Tucker’s
Landing and Taylorsville, was re
moved today when the Board of Coun
ty Commissioners held u special ses

tract to the McLean Construction
Company, of Baltimore. Meanwhile,
formal sanction of the War Depart

tlie matter will be taken up inline

Munroe, by direction of the' County
As stated in The Capital a few days
ago, the award of contract under the
revised specifications was held up
subject to the approval of Nicholas H.
Green, counsellor to the Board, and
Engineer Munroe. The fact that the
revised specifications brought the
contract above the $50,000 to be rea
lized by the sale of bonds, by about
$2,500, presented an issue, but it was
finally decided that the Board o!
Commissioners have general powers
relative to the building of bridges
and wharves, and this brought about
a complete solution of the whole prob

No definite place for the Navy-Penn
State football game, scheduled for
November 4, has yet been agreed upon
by officials of the two institutions, it
was announced at the Naval Academy.
Commander Douglas L. Howard, in
charge of athletics, is away on a trip,
but officials close to the administra
tion declared that negotiations are
still pending both with Washington
and Philadelphia officials for the use
of grounds in those cities. No defi
nite decision will be reached until
Commander Howard’s return to the
Academy, which will not be for about
two weeks.
Washington is conceded to have as
good a chance as any other city to
land the Penn State-Navy game, pro
viding the Capital city can provide a
suitable playing ground for the date
on which the game is scheduled.
However, advices indicate that the
American League ball park the e id
already under contract for November
4, in which case the game will almost
certainly go to Philadelphia.
Navy officials are loath to change
j the date from the fourth to the third,
! even to permit its being played in the
Capital. They feel they will be forced
to plow through too much red tape, as
is customary in the navy, and prefer
that the game be played as scheduled
regardless of the location.

Barely Retains Crown In
Tendler “Mill”
Benny Leonard, lightweight cham
pion of the .world, was handed the
surprise of his energetic young life
last night In Jersey City when he was
fought to a standstill for twelve
rounds by I,ew Tendler. an aspirant
to the lightweight throne, who hails
from Philadelphia. While the major
ity of the newspaper decisions seemed
to favor Leonard as being the victor
of the fast and furious ring battle that
was engaged in by the two fighters
opinion was almost ununimous tha*
w hut ever advantage Leonard held
over his opponent was but u “shade.’
All of which has* brought forth th
clamorous cry today from fight fam

to the champion, and Leonard pluinl.'
showed that he was having a ban
time perfecting a defense to meet th*
Quaker’s furious onslaughts. In th*
very first round Tendler opened t
cut over Leonard’s eye and through
out the whole milling he showed n*
disposition to avoid meeting any sor
of punch the champion had in hi.
Leonurd Weathered Heavy Blow
In the eighth round, the Quakei
City lad shot across a terrific left t
the champion's jaw, which, for a fleet
ing few seconds, seemed to be label
ed “Sleepdom.” Leonard, howevei
proved his championship class b

through the round safely. In accom
