SUSPECT EIIDS LIFE
DEATH END8 8EARCH FOR RICH FRIEND OF 8LAIN MODEL OF PHILADELPHIA. SON OF BIG COAL MAGNATE Bernard W. Lewis Saw Girl Killed After Visit to Home, Police Believe Committed Suicide While Officer! ' Were Waiting to Arrest Him. Philadelphia, Jan. 6.-Bernard W. Lewis, the young Pittsburgh million aire who was being sought on a charge collateral with the murder of Maizle Colbert, the model, committed suicide on Thursday at Atlantic City. Lewis, traced to the very threshold of his suite by detectives, delayed their admittance with conversation. He shot himself with a .22-caliber rifle just as ' the doors were battered down. The bullet entered the temple and death was instantaneous. That Lewis anticipated arrest and made prepara tions to kill himself Is Indicated by the fact that the rifle was new. Although the detectives do nor. charge Lewis with the murder, they declare that his was the collar found In the beautiful model's rooms. A woman, who saw Lewis Friday night, Identified it, they assert, by a spot and the fact that It was slightly wilted In front. Lewis killed himself when about to be arrested. The warrant charged him with failing to pay a $19 taxicab bill. This he contracted by taking the Misses Mabel and Ethel Kyle of Ger mantown, Pa., from the Bellevue Strat ford to their home and then riding back to Fifteenth and Poplar streets, where the Wilton apartments are lo cated. The detectives now admit that while they sought to arrest Lewis on the failure to pay the money, they really wanted him because they be lieved he saw the murder committed. They say he was In the girl's rooms when her lover appeared and, mad dened either by alcohol or jealousy, or both, battered the girl to death while Lewis watched, hideously fascinated. While the detectives were hunting wildly for Lewis the man, evidently mad with excitement, telephoned thrice to the Kyle home. "What shall I do? What shall 1 do?" he asked the first time he tele phoned to Miss May Kyle, sister of the two public school teachers he escorted home. "I do not know" this woman this woman Grace Colbert or Roberts or whoever she was. It will ruin me. It will ruin me this revolting thing. My God, they say the police are look ing for me." "What shall I do?" The police now declare that the ar rest of the murderer of Grace Rob erts is a simple matter; that Lewis suicide but confirms their suspicions. They say that the real murderer Is within the grasp of their hands. Lewis was thirty-seven years old, a Yale graduate of 1901 and a member of the Union, Pittsburgh, Country, Oakmont and Pittsburgh Automobile clubs. He was married but had been estranged from his wife since last No vember. He was well known among the devotees of the night life. 150 PERISH ON TROOPSHIP British Transport Torpedoed by Sub marine in the Mediterranean, Says London Statement. London, Jan. 6.
