Australian Tells of Confession

WOMAN BROUGHT FOOD
Curtis Said He Was Mixed Up in
an Embezzlement and Had to
Keep Away From the

BERKELEY, CaL, Oct 15. As a result
of a long conference tonight with "William
Ellis, of Australia, who lies in the hos
pital with a fractured skull. Inflicted, it is
alleged, by a man known as Brush, alias
Curtis, and who, it Is further alleged, is
Milton Franklin Andrews, accused of the
murder of Bessie Bouton, near Colorado
Springs, Marshal Vollmer learned that the
unknown woman, who is alleged to have
played a part In the scheme to end Ellis'
life in Berkeley, once succeeded in keep
ing Andrews hidden in Denver for two
According to Ellis, whose additional
story tonight has given the police an op
portunity to trace the movements Brush
and the woman ever since they loft Colo
rado Springs, Brush made a confession
to him October 3, when he spent the
night at the house rented by the pair in
Berkeley. Ellis said Andrews told him
while Brush and the woman were In Den

food, going about the city without fear of
On leaving Denver, the pair went direct
ly to Vancouver, from where they took
the steamer Miowera for Australia, whore
they lived until departing on the Sierra,
about eight weeks ago, for San Rranclsco.
EiIIs accompanied them, and they made
their first stop at New Zealand. From
there they wont to Honolulu, finally leav
ing the islands 20 days ago for San Fran
cisco. While In Australia Bush, Ellis said, en
tered into all manner of confidence games,
and, according to Ellis, they welched on
bets at the Kensington racetrack. This
was their chief reason for leaving Aus
tralia. In the Antipodes, Brush lived un
der the name of Clayton Hill, which he
told Ellis was his true name.
Brush told Ellis that his reason for
hiding In Denver was to escape thii police,
who wanted him in connection with the
embezzlement of J10.000 from a Denver
firm. A young man was arrested for the
theft, and Brush stated that he had se
cured the money from him in a card
It is believed by the local police -that
Brush and the woman who accompanied
him are located in San Francsco, and that
their apprehension will be a matter of but
a short time. Chief of Police Vollmer now
holds to the theory that the attempt was
made to murder Ellis by his friends, who
were In dire straits for money. Ellis said
tonight that Brush further told him that
the woman he was with is a Frenoh

"Wore Beard Like Suspect.
BOISE. Idaho, Oct. 15. A. Burch, a
well-known Spokane mining man, former
ly manager of the Bunker Hill mlnne. nr. .
rived here this evening, after a- somewhat
remarkable chain of experiences on the
way from San' FfaTiclsco.' 'Several" at
tempts were made to arrest him on the
supposition that he was the marf who,
at Berkeley, recently committed a "mur
derous assault upon an Australian horse
man and robbed him of $5000. The trou
ble was occasioned by the clerk In the
ticket office at San Francisco. He re
ported that he had sold ticket No. 2493,
from San Francisco to Boise, to a man
answering the description of the man
wanted. On this information the officers
instructed officers at various points along
the road to arrest him.
Burch, was called out of his stateroom at
Roseburg, but soon showed the officers
the description did not fit him, except
that he wore a dark Vandyke beard. As
the train neared Portland he was again
called out This time it was Sheriff 'Word,
of Multnomah County, who knew him.
Word told the Portland police not to in
terfere with Burch, but two plain-clothes
men got aboard as the tran was entering
the city and shadowed him.
On the Boise branch, the conductor
asked him if he had not had fun ovor
,nat, ycket and when he arrived in the
hotel here, a Boise officer stepped up with
the same instructions to arrest him.

9 The Keynote of the new and greater Delineator for
November is Novelty.
Q In its Fashions the new order of things is evidenced
on every page ; in its illustrations of the present and
coming Styles, Novelty of treatment lends much to the
temptations of the modes themselves. 64 pages of the
New Things from Paris, from New York, from wherever
can be gathered the season's newest and best creations.
9 Speaking in pages may not mean much to you. Abetter
way to realize the bigness of the November Delineator is
to know that it contains more pages devoted to fashions
and dress topics than any two other magazines.
S Helen Berkeley-Loyd and M. Edouard La Fontaine,
writing exclusively for this magazine, contribute papers
this-month that every woman in the land will wish to read
the real news of woman's dress; the final word of
authority on what is to be during the coming months,
which is awaited with eagerness each season by every
woman who cares for her appearance.
9 Then the color printing a feature that is practically
exclusive with The Delineator for while one or two other
publications print a few pages with an added color, this
number contains 21 pages in color in addition to the
regular full-color plates of fashions.
Q The Delineator has always given the most in quality
and in quantity for its subscription price it is now giving
more much more than ever before.
I Practically everything in this number is new excepting
its good old name. Besides the Fashions and the House
hold Departments, which have made The Delineator fa
mous; besides its Children's Magazine, which is beyond
comparison; besides its many special articles of helpful
ness and interest, one great feature deserves the atten
tion of every thinking woman and man:

J It is nearly two years now since The Delineator began
its investigation of the Pure Food Question the most
thorough searching for facts, the most careful analysis,
of products ever conducted. Supplementing the work
of the Government's experts, The Delineator has gone
much further by establishing its own board of examiners
and specialists who are investigating the different value
of food products and beverages, their chemical analysis
and correct or fictitious labeling.
?Theresults obtained by this department or laboratory
enable the housekeeper to quickly and accurately de
cide for herself what is safe and wholesome food for
daily home consumption.
9 Readers of The Delineator have been regularly sup
plied with timely and most interesting articles on the
subject. Among these is the series now running in
each issue, entitled "Safe Foods and How to Get Them,"
written by that well-known authority, Mary Hinman Abel.
In the November number the author treats of "Official
Milk Inspection." The article is well illustrated by pic
tures and diagrams. If you want to know how a billion
gallons of milk are treated annually in this country, Mrs.
Abel's article will inform you.
9 These specially prepared articles are to be a regular
feature of The. Delineator, and will contain, in partsome
of the results of the investigations now carried on by the
9 That The Delineator has become an authority on the
Food Question, all the world knows. No better evi
dence of this could be found than in the fact that it is
frequently and favorably quoted. This, then, is another
evidence were one needed of the great value of The
Delineator to the American housekeeper, not only in the
protectionof her health, but to her materialcomf ort as well.
