the Herdman girl she was permitted
to go.
The police now say Miss Herdman
met Manning after leaving police
headquarters, and that they went to
gether to a saloon’ at Ward and Me
chanic street. They were together
there drinking, the po’.ice say, until
4 o'clock this morning.
A reporter called at the home at
his mother. Mrs. Aaron Manning. In
Fairfield, today, and learned that
Manning and Mrs. Thomas Stagg, a
sister, had departed in an automobile
late last night and had not returned.
"My son came here in an automo
bile,” said Mrs. Manning, “and told
us my daughter, Mrs. Garrabrant.
w*th whom he lives, had been hurt
bv a trolley car. Mrs. Stagg got Into
the car with them and they drove
away. I haven’t seen either of them
or heard from them since."
Efforts to obtain entrance to the
Garrabrant home today were futiv.
and employees in Manning's gar age
said they did not know anything .
the owners' whereabouts.
Hint of Man Disguised m Woman.
The police and Chief Frederick
Weimer, of the county detectives, ad
mitted today the possibility that the
shooting was done by a man dis
guised as a woman. The inability of
Mrs. Cobb and Mrs. Riley to furnish
an adequate description of the slayer
or to say whether the crime was
committed by a man or woman is
the only evidence the police have on
which to base this theory.
Although practically the entire de
tectlve force, reinforced by the
county detectives, worked on the case
all night, they were unable to obtain
any evidence which would warrant
them making an arrest. Zink, the
brewery driver, was the only one of
perhaps a dozen persons questioned
by the authorities w’ho was being
held In headquarters thlB afternoon
Mrs. Cobb and Mrs. Riley are there,
but not under detention, the police
merely desiring them to remain to
attempt the Identification of any per
sons who may be taken to the sta
tion-house in connection with the
case.
Sister Hysterical.
Mrs. Addle Pierson, a sister of Mrs.
Manning. Insisted today that her sis
ter’s murderer Is a man.
Mrs. Pierson, who came from the
City Hospital two weeks ago after
undergoing an operation, was greatly
excited when reporters called at her
home, 42 Hunterdon street.
*Tve told all I know; I can't tell
any more." she said. Then she fled.
Later reporters came to Mrs. Pier
son’s home again. This time she said:
"A man killed my sister; it was not
a woman, as people seem to believe."
When the reporters were endeavor
ing to get Mrs. Pierson to tell on
what she based this assumption
members of her family arrived and
forbade her to say any more.
At noon today Chief of Police ILong
said:
"I am satisfied that jealousy was
the motive of this crime. The police
have learned that Mrs. Manning was
friendly with several men, and we in
tend questioning every one of them.
We also will endeavor to bring in as
many of the other women friends of
these men as wc can find. We are j
bringing in all of the intimate ac- !
quaintances of the dead woman, and !
questioning them, but so ^ar we have
obtained nothing definite enough to
act on. Through the stories these
persons will tell us we expect to
round up the guilty perse ns.”
County Detectives Aiding -
Chief Weimer said:
"The case Is, of course, primarily
one for the Newark police, but tht
county detectives udll do their best to
dear up the mystery. I shall not resi
assured that the murderer Is a
woman, for, from what I could gathei
last night from the statements of
Mrs. Cobb and Mrs. Riley, neither of
them could testify positively to that.’
The police are searching for a
Montclair man who, they say, visited
Mrs. Manning frequently of late
This man, they say, was described
by a neighbor of the murdered
woman, who, however, was unable tc
give his name.
There is also a man named “Fred,"
said to be from Philadelphia, who is
said to have called on Mrs. Manning
at various times. The police art
most anxious to find this person, par
ticularly since the murderer, when
she cam j to Mrs. Manning’s home
yesterday, asserted she wras from
Philadelphia.
Story of Crime.
It was at 5:10 p. m. yesterday that
Mrs. Riley heard the ring of the door-1
bell in their apartment. When she |
opened the door to answer the aura
muns Mrs. Riley saw the figure of a
strange woman indistinctly defined in
the semi-darkness of the hallway.
“Does Mrs. Manning live here?” the
woman asked.
“Yes,” replied Mrs. Riley; “do you
want to see her?”
“Tell Harriet that her friend from
Philadelphia wants to talk with her.”
"What name shall I give?” Mrs.
Riley asked.
“Just say a friend from Philadel
phia,” said the woman as she fol
] lowed Mrs. Riley into the apart
i ment.
There were some article of furniture
; in the hallway that leads to the din
: ing-room. Mrs. Riley, cautioning the
visitor to be careful, led her Into the
i house.
Mrs. Cobb was in the dining-room
! Gas was lighted there, but turned low
Roth Mrs. Cobb and Mrs. Riley say;
they studied the visitor carefully on j
account of the unusual manner In
which she had come to their hom\ j
but could not say whether the caller
was a man or a woman. The heavy
mourning veil she wore effectually
hid her face, tlmy say, and the loose
1% fitting raincoat shrouded the out- j
lines of her figure.
The caller sai down in the dining- j
room with Mrs. Cobb, but there was
no conversation, it is said. Mrs.
Riley meantime went to summon her
sister, who was washing her hands
in the kitchen. The elder woman
told the police that her reticence pre-1
vented her opening a conversation
with the visitor.
“O, Harriet,” Mrs. Riley called out
to Mrs Manning, “there's a visitor
waiting f )»• you in the dining-room."
Who is it?" asked Mrs. Manning.
Visitor Announced,
says slu. is a friend from
Pniladelphia.” Mrs. Riley replied;
i i hen she joined her mother and the
■ visitor in the dining-room.
Mrs. Manning hastily slipped into
i kimono and entered the dining
' ooin.
“Who is It?" she asked, addressing i
1 her caller.
i “Don’t you know me?" the other
, asked in a low tone.
“I can’t say that I do," said Mrs.
Manning, as she vainly tried to catch
the countenance of the woman
* through the veil.
i “Come into the parlor; we can talk
I better there,” said Mrs. Manning, as
] she pointed the way to the caller.
* Without a word the visitor arose,
I picked up her umbrella with her left
hand and thrust her right into the
pocket of her raincoat. Even then, the
police theory is, she was fingering: the
revolver with which Mrs. Manning
was murdered.
Mrs. Cobb and Mrs. Riley were un
! able to*verify the early reports that
: Mrs. Manning was shot as she lighted
* the gas in the parlor. Neither woman

MANNING WOMAN IN HER OWN HOME
i I
\k/ARREn STREET
could tell the police whether the gas
was lighted in the front room and
turned low, or whether It was un
lighted.
At all events, the front room sud
denly was flooded with light as Mrs
Manning asked her visitor again:
"Who are you, anyhow?”
"Oh, I’m your friend from Philadel
phia," the other repeated as she gave
a short, hysterical laugh.
Mrs. Manning’s hand was still on
the gas jet as the other woman
drew a revolver and fired. The
relatives in the dining-room
Jumped to their feet screaming as the
sharp report echoed through the little
flat. The visitor held the revolver not
more than six inches from Mrs. Man
ning’s left temple as she fired the
shot. Mrs. Manning turned as if to
face the shooter, then sank to her
knees. She crawled across the floor,
braced herself against a couch that
stood between the front windows of
the room and raised her hands in
prayer.
Coolly and deliberately the visitor
followed up her advantage. She
stepped forward, raised the revolver
a second time, took careful aim at
Mrs. Manning and sent a second bul
let Into her victim’s back. Mrs. Man
ning fell to the floor, her head grazing
the raised end of the couch.
Mrs. Riley’s two-year-old daughter, |
Evelyn, came screaming In terror
from the kitchen as the shots rang
out. The child clung to the skirts of
her mother and grandmother, who
was standing, horrified. In the door
way between the dining-room and the
parlor, Turning toward the women
and the child, the assassin again
raised the revolver. She pulled the
trigger. The two women and child
dodged back, terrified, and the bullet
passed over their heads and Im
bedded itself in the wall.
As the victim’s relatives shrank
back the murderess held the revolver,
stepped past them toward the dining
room door and backed Into the hall
way, closing the door behind. The
women heard the hurried footsteps of
the slayer In the hallway, then thuds
as the revolver and umbrella were
thrown away.
Btunued ay Tragedy.
| It was fully a half minute, Mrs.
Cobb and Mrs. Riley told the police
last night, before they could collect
their senses sufficiently to leave their
apartment, dragging little Evelyn
j with them. Then they ran through
■ the rear vara to the home of Mrs.
I Delia Murray, 221 Warren street.
j "My God, I think I'm shot. Harriet
■ has been killed,” exclaimed Mrs. Cobb
as she entered the Murray home.
A few questions sufficed to draw
from the frightened women the story
of the shooting Then Mrs Murray
sent her husband to notify the police.
Murray called up police headquar
ters from a nearby saloon. The mes
sage reacned the station house Just as
Chief of Police Long and Detectives
Keogh and Quinn were departing in
the chief's automobile. The machine
was driven to the Manning home and
arrived Just as a wagon load of re
serves from the Second precinct, who
had been summoned by a neighbor,
came. The police notified the City
Hospital but when the ambulance ar
rived the surgeon announced Mrs.
I Meaning was dead.
The police hurriedly began a search
of the neighborhood, hut absolutely no
clue to the murderer was found. No
body questioned by the officers ad
mitted seeing Mrs. Manning's slayer
enter or leave the house. A search of
the house, however, brought to light
the murderer's umbrella, the revolver,
which lay behind the door leading to
the street, and a button, believed to
have been torn from the slayer's rain
coat.
Nobody in the neighborhood ques
tioned by the police even admitted
hearing the shots. Mrs. Catherine
Boylan, who lives on the second floor,
was in the- place when Mrs. Manning
was killed. She, however, Is partially
deaf and knew nothing of the trag
edy until her daughter Nellie arrived
home from work and saw the am
bulance standing in front of the
house.
When the police were unable to ob
ta'n a clue to the murderer from
Mrs. Manning’s relatives and from
neighbors, they took Mrs. Riley and
Mrs. Cobb to police headquarters.
There the women were grilled for
three hours. The story they told the
police is substantially as given above.
They steadfastly asserted they could
not say whether the murderer was a
man or woman. Both women gave
statements to Frederick Welmer,
chief of the county detectives, who
has almost his entire staff working
with the Newark police in an effort
to clear up the mystery.
Separated from Husband.
From Mrs. Cobb and Mrs. Riley the
police learned the details of the mur
dered woman’s married life. She was
married to Charles I. Manning, now
proprietor of the Mountainside
| garage. In Pompton turnpike, Verona,
[ ten years ago, but had been separat
ed from him since September, 1910.
After separation from his wife, the
women told the police. Manning had
become intimate with Miss Grace
Dey, of Fairfield. Tncy said he had
given her a diamond ring, and also
given her a check for all the money
he had on deposit In the Hamilton
Trust Company, Paterson. At this
time, the women alleged, Manning
and the Dey girl were planning to
elope, and the money he Is alleged to
have given her was to defray her ex
penses to the West, where they were
to meet. This elopement, said the
murdered woman’s relatives, never
came to pass.
The stories tola by the women lea
the police to bring Manning and the
Dey girl to thlB city last night. They
were questioned closely In police
h. ^Jquarters, but the story of their
movements of yesterday satisfied the
police and they were released.
Mrs. Manning and Mrs. Riley came
to this city several years ago from
Pine Brook, this State. They took an I
apartment In Wilsey street. Six :
months ago Mrs. Cobb, who had been j
living In Pino Brook, Joined her !
daughters In this city. Then they
took the apartment in Warren street,
where the woman was murdered.
The Wurren street house Is of
brick, three stories in height. The
mother and daughters lived on the
first floo
Neighbors told reporters today that
since coming to Warren street Mrs.
obb and her daughters had given
the impression of being quiet, liome
loving persons, and did nothing to
bring themselves into questionable
prominence in the neighborhood.

Real Estate Man Testifies in
Branford Place Opening
Heeding.
Abe Feist, of Feist & Feist, called
as expert in the hearing of objec
tions against awards on property
needed by the city for a further open
ing of Branford place, yesterday testi
fied that the purchase of the site to
which the Newark Star was moved
had increased the value of surround
ing property at least 30 per cent. Mr.
Feist explained this assertion by
stating that former United States
Senator James Smith, Jr., had paid
$178,000 for the property In 1906 and
that the building erected was a beau
tiful one.
Edward H. Lum. another ex
pert, substantiated Mr. Feist's state
ment when he testified.
Yesterday’s hearing was the first
one on the objections rutsed by prop
erty owners on the line ef the pro
posed opening. It took place before
Supreme Court Commissioner Nicholas
W. Blndsell in the office of the city’s
law department.
Testimony' was heard on the claim
of the King estate of 207 Halsey
street, of which Mrs. Minnie E.
King is the owner. Of this property,
located at the northwest corner of
Halsey and Camfield streets, twelve
feet will be taken to cut Branford
place through and the assessment
commission awarded $19,000.
Mr. Lum claimed that from his ex
perience in twenty-three years the
award should have been $31,000. Of
this he figured $18,000 for the prop
erty taken, $8,000 for the building and
$5,000 damages for the reduction of
the revenue-producing possibilities of
the property.
The running foot wae estimated by
Mr, Lum to 1'ey worth about $2,000.
W. C. Fiedler, a real estate dealer,
who testified, put the value at $2,200
a running foot.
Charles A. Winston, a civil engi
neer and building appraiser, gave the
value of the bul'dlng as $10,00"', and
Adam Llcht, another building ^ap
praiser, testified that the eutt’ng off
of twelve feet would lessen the pos
sible revenue by $12,000.
Tht city was represented by As
sistant City Attorney Charles M.
Myers and Ralph E. Lum, of Lum.
Tamblyn & Colyer, represented the
complainants. No date was set for
the next hearing.
