triple murder, John Gard, who lives In
tho nelghbothood of Twenty-fourth and

the shooting. He had just completed car

The car crossed the Junction of Twenty-fourth

As It neared the crossing he saw .i

on the went side of the street, heading
southward. The engine was throbblijg,
he said, but the lights cre out. A man
was at tho wheel. He was In his tdilrt

John Gard. who has told neighbors of

located yesterday morning by Detectives
Pszanowskl and Rich and the foregoing;
Is his story.
Heard Man In llnrU Yard.
A woman living on the east side ot
Twenty-fourth street, the second house
north of Pacific, told the detectives that
she heard a man run through her hack-
yard and stumble against a fire fence
trying to get out on Twenty-fourth
street. This was about 11 o'clock.
The Incident, magnified as It passed
from mouth to mouth Is minimized today
by the police. The shooting occurred,
according to niost'of the witnesses about
10:20 o'clock. The auto Incident occurred
bout II o'clock.
t don't think the Incident Is worth
considering at all." declared Chief Dunn
If the men In the auto were the mur
derers, thev wouldn t wait around ror
forty minutes. Besides, the auto could
not have been on the spot mote than ft
few minutes, because witnesses who
passed Twenty-fourth and Pacific slteets
al the t me of the shootimt or soon
after, say they saw no auto "
Despite this. Detectives rticii and
PsKonowskl ate trying to locate the
machine and Its occupants
I no 4ilvr. rteon,
"1 have found notntug to cause me to
change my opinion about tho afflr," de
clared Chief Dunn. "In reiterating this
opinion I ilo not do so stubbornlj . on the
contrarj, I would be glad to find myself
In error If in doing so I could learn
anything about the affair that would lead
to the solution of the conundrum. Thus
far. howevei, to my mind, nothing has

lleve otherwise than that the three, men
killed each other.
"The three men were brought up In
that neighborhood, and from childhood
knew that In time of trouble a quiet
tongue la the best remedy. I'nusua
things are happening In that neighbor
hood always. At the Inquest halt
dozen witnesses were careful to announce
that thev didn't see certain tilings he
cause thev were 'tending stiicll to thel

"In my opinion, the B breeders quar
reled with Rapp. The latter shot the
brothers and they wrested the gun from

the Schroedera walked several blocks
so I am safe in presuming thev had
sufficient strength left t take the gun
away from Rapp and shoot him, Maybe
after the shooting thev all realized th
seriousness of the affair. Maybe there
was a, brief whlspeied promise to settle
the affair anions themselves and keep

perhaps, the Italian story was framed

tho tough side of life, confess they were

when they recovered '.' I don't think so.
That this la the case Is corroborated by
our experience In other mysteries in that
neighborhood. People there, in the mam,
are tinlike people of the west Farnam
district. They don't want the authorities
to mix In their affairs because they are
all hard working, people who haven I
the money to hire ovpenihe lawyers
when once they get Intj the courts, Ho
In most cases they just settle their af
fa'rs among themselves and suffer most

authorities to Interfere.
Truth StrHiim-r Tlum I'lcllon.
"Knowing this, 1 still cling to tlio
pinion that the three men quarrelled
among themselves and the shooting
aturted, strange and unusual as It tuny
sound. Truth Is stranger than fiction.
nd hero Is a typical example."
In spllo of tho general police opinion,
every bit of gossip that promises u solu
tion Is run to earth, and every clue
ending to disprove the police etory Is
worked to the finish. Thus far gossip
nd clues obtainable have only tiroven
waste of time.
Ono of the many false lends the police

ng when Mrs. U Grimm, 1215 South
Twenty-fourth stieot denied that shn
