I was now in the heart of New York
without a cent and without the power
of appealing to any of my friends for

for which I had paid $200 the year be

might pawn it until I saw the three
bails on a pawnshop at Third avenue
and Fourteenth street. I entered the
shop and "hocked” my watch for 513
With this money in my possession
I regained confidence. I had always
been able to make my own way in the
a?t In fact. I had always been a
money-maker Why not again? So I
determined to start anew in life I
would forget that I had ever been
Ralph A Clarke. In the future I
would be B. R. Benton. The name
came to me like an inspiration.
I read of my escape from The
Knolls, and I even dropped into a po
’ e station to see if a general alarm
bad been sec*- out for me. Finding
out there was a general alarm for me

en;.- wren I cros-ed over to Jersey
on the fc-rr> and took the trolley to
Trenton. At Trenton I managed ic
ue: a fre er:- rraiti, which landed me
at Perryvili-e. Md.
There a contractor was tearing
:o-ve an old railroad bridge, and I ap
, iied for work as a laborer. The boss
scanned me for a moment He told
me frankly that he didn't think I'd do.
but that, as he needed men. he'l give
mo a job. So I started to work at
once for S2.1jo a day. I found a cheap
boarding house across the r:\cr and
began my career as R. R. Senior. For
four weeks I worked at this job and
saved enough money to buy a ticket
for R:rfcmond. Va.. where I expected to
get a position at the American Loco
motive Works.
Succeeded in;.
I was successful in getting employ
men' at tee locomotive works in
Richmond, and 1 remained there until
April, 19 ". By that time I had ac
cumulated a nest egg from my sav
ings. and I began to look around for
some better way of making money.
I answered an 'ad." and got a posi
tion as a salesman with the Columbia
Shoe company, but left its employ for
a better position as a traveling sales
man for Smith & Hcmenway of Ner.
York. I sold safety razors for this
concern a!! over the middle west and
south. I gave my name as B. R. Ben
ton and my heme as Richmond.
While working for this concern I
met a man who was traveling for the
Parker Chemical company of Chicago,
and through him I got a job as sales
man for that concern. My headquar
ters were located at Richmond, and
my business brought me into contact
with prominent and influential per
sons there I made good commissions
as a salesman and constantly added to
my savings. Two years ago I deter
mmec to emc-ara in business lor my
self. With Dr. W. H. Parker, one of
the leading physicians of Richmond:
Dr. Ferguson of the state board of
health, and two others I organized the
Chemical Supply Company. I became
its secretary and general manager,
and later, upon the withdrawal of Dr.
Parker, its president.
As B. R. Benton I became acquaint
ed with Miss Nannie Proffitt of No.
314 East Cary street. Richmond two
years ago. and on March 30 of this
year we were married in Washington
by the Rev. E H. Swen of the Second
Baptist church. So determined was I
to forget that I had ever been Ralph
A Clarke of Brooklyn that I did not
even reveal my identity to my bride
until after we were married. Then
when I was induced to come to New
Vork and reveal my identity it was no
longer possible to keep my bride in
During the five years I lived in
Richmond I saw many of my old
friends, and one of them. Will Ketch
am of Brooklyn, stopped me and ask
ed if 1 was not Ralph Clarke. I met
his eyes calmly and told him he was
mistaken. Rowland J. Simes. another
oid friend, was not so easily deceived.
He saw me in the grill room of
Strumpfs Hotel in Richmond on the
7th of last January and immediately
hailed me as Clarke. I tried to throw
him off. even insisting that I had nev
er heard the name Clarke before, but
he knew me too well and I was forced
to admit my identity. We had dinner
together and spent an evening talking
over old times. Before he left me he
was pledged to keep my secret on con
dition that 1 meet him in Washington
on Jan. 30.
Returns to His Aged Mother.
When I met him at the Raleigh ho
tel on that date he pleaded with me to
release him from his pledge or se
crecy. He argued that it was unfair
to keep my family, especially my aged
mother, in ignorance of my fate. So,
principally for the sake of my mother,
I agreed to let it be known that Ralph
A. Clarke was still alive. Simes in
terested Bernard J. York, a New York
lawyer, in my case He had known
me in the old days in Brooklyn, and
when the necessary affidavits that I
was alive and sane had been prepared
he had no difficulty in having the
courts set aside the commitment and
return the $27,737 in cash which the
Hamilton Trust company was holding
in trust for me. Justice Blackmar in
the Supreme court. Brooklyn, signed
the necessary papers on April 14.
What next? I dont know. I am too
well known In Richmond as B. R. Ben
ton to discard that name, but of
course Ralph A. Clarke is my rightful
name. I haven't had time to solve the
perplexing complications which have
resulted from my strange career.

there is no doubting were recently

In replying to the statement John Red

rreclaimed his willingness to accept
the government measure as a full set
tlement of Ireland's claims and said
that with this concession of national
justice Ireland would acknowledge En

Hitherto the Nationalists have con
sented to accept whatever England
granted as a step toward final separa

the prime minister's statement of the
measure of home rule to be granted,
astonished his hearers by applauding
