CLAIM IT WAS ANOTHER'S BODY
Friend of Dead Belle Elmore Testifies
to Hair and Clothing Found on Dead
Woman In Cellar Crlppen Given a
Chance to Whisper to Leneve Girl.
London , Sept. 8. At the resump
tion today of the trial of Dr. llawley
H. Crlppen and Ethel Claire Leneve
for the murder of the former's wife ,
Public Prosecutor Humphreys Intro
duced evidence to establish the claim
of the crown that the parts of the
mutilated body found in the Crlppen
homo once formed a part of the per
son of Belle Elmoro , the missing wife ,
and to strengthen what has been pop
ularly regarded as the missing link In
the chain of circumstantial evidence
against the accused.
The first witness called was Mrs.
Adeline Harrison , whoso acquaintance
with Belle Elmore had extended over
a period of twelve years. Mrs. Harrison
risen was 'asked to examine Sstrnnds
of hair found when the dismembered
body was uncovered and , having done
so , she swore that she recognized the
exhibit as similar to that worn by
A torn bit of feminine un/lerwear
also discovered by the searchers in
the cellar was next introduced and the
witness declared that she had seen
Belle Elmoro clothed In undergar
ments of a like texture. Testimony
had been offered before , showing that
the lower part of the body bore a scar ,
the result of an operation. Mrs. Harrison
risen testified she had seen a similar
scar on the body of her friend.
Crippen Whispers to Leneve Girl.
The accused were seated in the dock
within whispering distance and the
doctor was given the opportunity to
speak to the girl. Miss Leneve pre
sented a woebegone appearance and
d'd ' not seem anxious to converse.
Crlppen , to whom his spectacles had
been returned for the first time since
his arrest , appeared as the Crippen of
early photographs. He spoke to the
girl anxiously and she replied In mono
In his cross-examination o Mrs.
Harrison , Arthur Newton , representing
Crippen , detracted somewhat from the
strength of the evidence and hidden
tally indicated what Is believed to be
the line of defense.
In reply to Newton's question the
witness assented to the suggestion
that the hair , the portion of a woman's
vest and the curling Iron found In the
Crlppen cellar were not only similar
to those worn or used by the missing
woman , but also "resembled then
sands of others. "
When Mrs. Harrison left the stand ,
the prosecution called the chemist
who claims that he sold hyosclne , a
deadly poison , to Crlppen. The wit
ness testified that the doctor pur
chased the drug on January 1 saying
that he required the poison for homeo
pathic use. As Is required of purchas
ers of poisons , he signed the registry
book of the store , making this Inscrip
"Munylons per Crlppen. "
Inspector Dew , who arrested the fu
gitives and brought them back from
Quebec , re-entered the witness box to
day and read a lengthy statement
signed by Crippen when the police
first asked him to make an explana
tion of his disappearance from London
after suspicion had been directed
against him. The gist of the state
ment had already been covered by
Humphreys In his opening address.
Inspector Dew also testified regard-
ing the search of Crlppen's house and
told of finding there a revolver and a
box of cartridges.

JOHN D. AVOIDS LIMELIGHT.
Oil King Shrinks from Publicity and
is More Sphinxlike.
Cleveland , Ohio. Sept. 8. John D.
Rockefeller avoids the limelight of
publicity more and more each day. If
he evaded Interviews In the past he
is like a sphinx now. Nothing will
tempt the master of Forest Hill to
step out In the open and declare him
self on any subject.
At the Euclid Avenue Baptist church
today Mr. Rockefeller confessed he
abhorred appearing in public prints.
Not publicly did he say this , but pri
vately in a corner of the church.
"Why is it tiiere is so much concern
about what I do or say ? " pleaded he
in mournful sort of key. "I do wish
H were Hot so. "
"It has been rumored that your wife
is very 111 ; Is there truth In the
story ? " he was asked.

thank you. But is it necessary to
spread It in the paper ? " returned the

A LEMON FOR UNCLE SAM.
The Two Points Won by John Bull
Were the Important Ones.
Washington , Sept. 8. A substantial
victory for Great Britain in perhaps
the two most Important points , a con
solatory triumph for the United
States In the other five points with a
prospect of another arbitration later
at the instance of the United States
government , Is the way tno decision
of The Hague tribunal In the New
Foundland fisheries case is viewed
here. The decision eliminated the
right of the United States to share in
the managing and tno enforcement of
the "reasonable regulations" govern
ing the fisheries in tno disputed terri
tory and it Is that qualification "rea-
Eonnblo" that may permit this govenv
meat to some time re-open the quos
tlon of Joint action as to regulations
The state department has not been
officially advised of the decision and 1
therefore declines to comment upon It.
The treaty of ISIS around which the
whole long fought controversy re
volves , declares the United States
right to "take , dry and euro" fish on
those coasts and to "dry and cure"
only on any unsettled bays , harbors
and creeks on the const of southern
Now Foundland and LabVador coasts.
Under the treaty Great Britain con
ceded the rights just mentioned and
the United States renounced any
claim to take , euro or dry fish within
the three-mllo limit not Included In
this specified territory.

ent chairman of the executive com
mittee. Gifford Pinchot , who Is presi
dent of the National Conservation as

would not bo a candidate.
Members of the resolutions com
mittee mot early today to prepare a
platform. T. Gilbert Pearson of North

sociation of Audubon societies , intro
duced a plank for the protection of
"The wild birds , " ho declared , "con
stitute ono of the most valuable na
tural assets of the country. " lie stat
ed that the losses to the agriculture
and forestry interests of the United
States annually amount to one billion
dollars through the ravages of In
sects , and that the percent is on the
increase. Increasing of the number
of birds , which constitute one of the
chief natural enemies of Injurious in
sects , was suggested. The audubon
society interested Colonel Roosevelt
when he was president In setting
nside sixty-one national reservations
as bird refuges and these reservations
nro today guarded by the wardens of
the nudubon society. It has also so-
.ured the enactment of laws In thirty-
seven states prohibiting the killing of
"Tho great stumbling block to se
curing bettor laws for the protection
of birds is the great Influence wielded
by certain interests in the country who
have largo sums Invested In the hand
ling of game and in the sale of feath
ers for women's hats. Wo can never
hope for the protection that the birds
rightly deserve until these great cor
porations can be controlled by statu
tory enactment , " said Mr. Pearson.
