Army and Navy Athletes Meet.
PHILADELPHIA. March 14 Representa
tives of the army and navv athk-tlc as
sociations met today to discuss future ath
letic contests between the two Institutions.
The arrangements for this year's foot ball
game and the question of tickets and ticket
scalping were discussed. The navy repre
sentatives presented a new set of rules,
which barred all players who had competed
for four years r.t some other institution
prior to their admission to West Point or
Annapolis. The army opposed this rule
nnd insisted that future Karnes be played
under the snme conditions as heretofore.
No decision was reached.
With 01. ly four of the league teams to
flnlfh tut the ftamn, It Is not difficult to
forecast results. The Wf sterns miet the
Gate Citys nn Tues.iny evening for throe
ga.Ties and on Thursday evening the Clark
sons and Krug Pniks plHy three games. If
the Gate Cltys lost all three of the games
and the Clarksons won thi Irs 'he two teams
would tie for second place, but it In hardly
a probability that such will lie the case.
The teams will undoubtedly linlh the sea
son in their present order. The Clarkson
loit their opportunity to step Into second
plne last week, when they lost two of
three gamer played with the Gate Cltys.
Had they taken all three of them they
would have been hard to displace, and even
a majority of the games would have put
them dei'idedly In the running. The Indi
vidual scores are still led by Emery, with
an average of lto 30-60. There are only
thirty-one on the list this week, one less
than the preceding week, bji fellows:

BUFFALO, N. Y., March 14. Judge
Murphy today opened the Inquest on Edwin
I Burdlck, who was found murdered In
his house on February 27.
'Under the law we are compelled to hold
this inquest," said Judge Murphy. "Wo
charge no one with thla crime. The pur
pose of this Investigation Is to lay this
crime, if possible, at tha door of somo one."
Dr. Howland paid he was summoned to
the Burdlck home by telephone on- the
mornlcg of February 27. Dr. W. H. Marcy
met him at the door and told him that
something hatd been going on there and
that Mr. Burdlck was dead.
"I am not sure," continued Dr. Holland,
but I think he told me that he wua not
certain whether It was murder or suicide.
He BBked me to make it out as a case of
suicide. If possible, as there had been a
good deal of gossip In the neighborhood
respecting the relations existing between
Mr. and Mrs. Burdlck.
He then examined the body and told
Dr. Marcy that It wca Impoarlble to enter
tain the suicide theory for a minute.
Blurderer Moves Body.
Mr. Coatsworth brought out the fact that
Burdtck's body bad been moved by tho mur
derer after the crime had been committed.
Tho witness saw no weapon In the room.
"What was your conclusion as to whether
Burdlck was killed In tha den?" he was
"I think he was."
"When he was killed was he lying on the
couch In the position In which you found
"Judging from the location of the wounds,
he must have been lying in some other po
sition at tho time he was struck."
A moment later he described a tuft of
hair he found on the couch. He waa of the
opinion that it was longer than Burdlck's
The doctor stated that from the condi
tion of the body ho was of thi opinion that
Burdlck waa killed about 2 o'clock. This
Is regarded as important, as It would tend
to nullify the statements made to the dis
trict attorney by Officers Me;'er and Rich
ard regarding the "lone woman."
In reply to another question, an affirma
tive answer to which would have shown
that a woman had been In the room, the
doctor gave a, negative repl;'.
Detective John W. Holralund also had a
talk with Dr. Marcy. who gave him the
Impression that he wanted the matter kept
Has Presentiment of Evil.
Mrs. Hull, mother of Mrs. Burdlck, the
next witness, said her daughter was at At
lantic City oc the nlstht of the murder.
Proceeding, she entered Into a minute
account of her doinga that night and went
on to tell of finding the body.
"I went to the den," she said, "and
opened the door a little and called 'Ed, Ed,
Ed.' I saw something on the couch. It
was dark In there I saw the Murray girl
In the hall and said: 'Maggie, I fear that
Bomethlng has happened. I do not dare
go In there, do you? What shall we do?'
"Then I said that we bad better send tor
"Why didn't you go In?"
"I wss too nervous."
"What did you think?"
"I did not know what had happened. I
thought perhaps It was Ed on the couch."
"But you h&d seen him sleeping before.
Why were you afraid to see him sleeping?"
"If he had been Bleeping my screams
would have awakened him. I was afraid
to find him dead in there. Of course I
did not know it was Ed."
"Then you did scream?"
"Yea, as loudly as I could. I did not
arouse him and I was frightened."
"You had no reason for expecting to find
htm dead In there?"
'No, except that be did not respond to
Witness Provoklaaly Calm.
At this point Mr. Coatsworth handed
her a photograph of the den with the
body of the murdered man lying on tho
couch covered as Dr. Marcy found It.
Mrs. Hull took the photograph with a
steady hand am', looked at It Intently and
"Does this photograph represent the den
as you saw It that morning?" asked Mr.
"I do not remember."
Continuing, she said she had never asked
and had never been told the details of the
tragedy. Eli. deUed having said that she
thought she knew someone who might have
She and Burdlck had never quarreled; in
deed, her son-lnlaw had always treated
her kindly and with consideration.
"Isn't it a fact that you only stayed In
that house after your daughter left on ac
count of love for the children?"
"Yes, and for Mr. Burdlck's sake."
Maggie Murray, the dead man's cook,
was called to contradlet certain unimpor
tant details In Mrs. Hull's story, and the
hearing was adjourned.
