Han Francisco, Oct. 4. The polled
of Han Francisco nro almost positive
that the thrcn men giving thu niiincs
of Leonard, Morris and--nryson, who
purchased BOO pounds of dynamite
from the Qlant Powdor jilant at Oak
land on September 24, are responsi
ble for the dynamite outrnges at Los
Angeles, Including the blowing up of
the Los Angeles Times.
Attorney J3arl ltogers and Detec
tive William Burns, who nre here In
vestigating this clow, learned today
that the threo men In question anch
ored ti launch at Sausallto from Sep
tember 21 to 23 and that on the night
of September 22 they gave the ves
sel a new coat of paint. On Septem
ber 23 the detectives learned, the throo
men went to an aluminum goods store
In San Francisco and purchased two
sets of name plates bearing tho name
"Peerless." Tho next day tho three
men In the launch, with thu name
"Peerless" very clear and distinct on
thu sldo or the launch, appeared nt
the Giant Powdor company's plant
und purchased fiOO pounds of dyna
mite. Ilnrns and Uogcrs arc both
convinced that on the night of Sep
tember 21 the throo men again chang
ed tlio name of tho vessel and possl
,luX.pulnted It over in .order to. throw
tliu police oft tliV scent. No launch
going under the name "Peerless" la
Known on the bay and tho niiuioritio.
nro now working on tho theory thai
the missing la'uncli Is still In this vi
cinity under another name.
Uurns and Hogers found further
confirmation of tholr theory when
residents of A'lvlso, which Ih on tho
extreme lower end of San Frunclsco
bay, reported today that they saw n
launch answering tho description of
tho inlBslug vessel enter Alvlso Slough
on tho afternoon of September 25. The
launch tied up at a wharf and three
men were seen aboard.They remained
quiet during the afternoon und early
evening but near midnight they woru
Been to unload their cargo und place
It In a. wagon or automobile observers
could not tell which.
At daybreak on "September 2C, three
men and tho launch had disappeared.
Jt Is believed that tho launch Is
beached somowhuro In tho marshes.
Thu police- theory Is that this was
tho hamuli which took on dynamite
at tho Giant Powder company's
plant on September 24, that tho cargo
unloaded ut Alvlso was dynomlto und
that tho explosive was taken by auto
Hiubllu to Los, Angules via Kan Jose.
A United Press launch today began
u search of tho marshes near Alvlso
Tor tlio missing luuneh "Peerless."
Several residents of Alvlso saw tho
mysterious launch and three men on
September 23, and all deelaro thai
tho descriptions of th0 vessel tally
with tho description of thu launch
which took tho trco men tu tho Giant
1'owder comjiany's ulunt.

The report that the count was "dy

by tho landlady who said that It was
true that ho had been thrown rrom
his horse but that beyond a "sklnncsl

"Ho Is -able to be about the hoiisi

Whero the story started that he was
fatally hurt."
Tho countess arrived today from
Chicago. Her father was responsible
Tor the story that his son-in-law had
been fatally hurt und was In a hospl
tal. This report, following on tile
heels of another story that tlio count
and countess had hud a bitter quar
rel and that tho former had lohl
his wife that hu was going to leave
her forever caused a sensation among
friends or the pair In this city
Police headquarters woro asked l

hospital was visited Willie tlio Ib'tel
llelmout where tlio family formerly
stopped and several of tho chilis were
scoured for Information. Finally It
was learned that tho count was In
the lodgings which ho occupied when
ho lirst came to this city. Alter In
laid refused to sen Interviewers, a
friend of Ills said that there had liet-n
a "slight misunderstanding" between
tlio count und his bride anil thut he
had sent word to her of the incident
hi order to get her to come to tills
city to see 1 1 ill). If this was ills ob
ject lie was successful as when the
countess arrived sho showed by her
attitude thut she was very badly wor
ried and hustled Into a waiting auto
mobile at the station and was rushed
to the apartments of her husband.
Heyuud admitting that shu had pass
ed u sleepless night sho refused to
bo Interviewed and when questioned
icgardlug tho report that shu and her
husband had separated in Chicago
said tho story was a "cruel lie."
Later In tho day one of tlio count's

but in Van Cortlaiidt park. Accord
ing to this informant, the count was
thrown clear over his horse's head
and landed heavily against u tree He
was rendered unconscious and was

lgorouvly denied ruports that Count
Mourik De Heuufort, son-in-law of

heiress bride liavo sep.iratodi there
came a ihysterlous rumor today that
the count Is dying soniewhoro in New
York, after an accident sustnlnod nt
Central park yesterday whllo riding
horseback. Tho report reached Now
York from Chicago and was told In
clrcunistantlnl detail.
Despite the apparent authenticity,
however. if the Chicago story, the
Now York pollco have found no tracn
of tho "dying" man, nor havo any
of the larger hospitals reported hi in

the count been living at Hotel nob

the Chicago reporters ho had been
making his home. The Chicago story
also said tho count was being treat

cian Is known In New York.
Op tho heels of all these denials,
Kllgnllon added to tho mystery by
refusing to tell in what hospital tho
count is a patient. Whon seen in
