Some Statements Made by Wife ol
Slain Rector Disputed by
Husband of Singer.
NEW BRUNSWICK, N. X, Nov. !.
A warrant has been prepared for
service by the authorities investi
gating the double murder of Rev.
Edward Halland Mrs. Eleanor Mills,
it was said tonight by a county
official in close touch with the in
vestigators. "The warrant has been prepared,"
the official said, "and will be signed
whenever Mr. Mott says go.' "
It was reported here tonight
that Deputy Attorney-General Mott
would return to New Brunswick to
morrow. Authorities working on the in
vestigation of the double slaying
spent the day checking up discrep
ancies said to exist between the
statement given by Mrs. Hall to the
county prosecutors and the answers
in her interview with reporters yes
terday. The point receiving the greatest
attention, detectives asserted, was
that in her statement to the officials
Mrs. Hall said she returned to her
home the morning following the
murder at 2:30 o'clock after having
sought her husband in vain at the
church. A watchman at the New Jer
sey state college for women told
the police that he saw a woman en
tering the Hall home at that hour.
In the account of her movements on
the night of the murders given to
newspaper writers she said she did
not reach her home until 3:30 o'clock.
Mills Recalls Meeting.
Looking up from work in a coal
bin in the basement of the. school
house where he is janitor, James
Mills, whose wife Eleanor was mur
dered with Rev. Mr. Hall on Septem
ber 14, today took issue with some
of the statements made yesterday by
the clergyman's widow in an inter
Mills said that he met Mrs. Hall
at the church at 8:30 o'clock on th
morning of September 15. Mrs. Hall
said yesterday that she was at the
church at 7 o clock.
"'I know it could not have been
earlier than 8:30," said Mills, ''be
cause my children had gone to
"The first thing Mrs. Hall asked
me was, was anybody sick at your
nouse last night." We then com
mented on the fact that both my
wife and her husband were missing,

" 'No,' was Mrs. Hall's reply. 'I

"At noon when Mrs. Hall came
to my house I told her I had not
heard anything and she said she had
not either. Then she went away.
She was incorrect in her statements
in saying she did not come to my
house again at 5:30 o'clock. She
stayed only a minute.
Xothlngr Wrong Suspected.
"I saw Mrs. Hall aain at 7 o'clock
in her home. I went there to ask
her if she had any news. I stayed
on the porch to talk. She did riot
seem to take it as hard is I did.
I had an idea that Dr. Hall and my
wife had been together, but I did
not think there was anything
wrong. 1 don't know why I ever
suggested an elopement."
Commenting on Mrs. Hall's state
ment that she was not vindictive
and that she did not care to see
anyone punished for the murder.
Mills said: .
"I am not vindictive, either, but
I want to see thi murderer pun
ished. I believe 't was a woman's
deed. All these theories about black
mail and robbery and things are rot.
It was Jealousy, vnd I think her
throat was cut in spite,' because of
her beautiful B'ng'tig."
"I never heard my gossip about
my wife and Dr. Hall. If I had I
would not have stood for it for a
single minute. I am man enough
not to have kept that job at the
church if I thought there was any
thing wrong between the minister
and my wife. I would have gone to
Mr. Hall and if he would not listen
I would have gone to the bishop
and to the vestry."
Mills said he hai never heard oi
his wife having trouble with any
body and said he knew of no en
emies that Dr. Hall might have
"There was plenty of gossip
among members of the choir
though," he added.

TWO BEARS GET DRUNK
Bruins "Pickled to Eyebrows" on
Moonshine Mash EnteiCamp.
TACUM4, Wash., Nov. 2. Two
full-grown bears, "pickled to the
eyebrows," entered the camp of the
i-ugei sound Light & Power com
pany at Lake Kirtley, Arthur New
berry, manager of the camp, re
ported here today.
Mr. Newberry said the bears came
into his cabin, rolled up at his feet,
and refused to budge.
"I gave one of the bears a good
punch, but he only rolled over," he
said. "I found his breath was strong
enough to floor an inveterate
drinker, and the truth flashed on
me that the bears were intoxicate."
Mr. Newberry and other men at
the camp then set out to discover
the bootlegger in the case. By following-
the trail of the bears they
came upon two barrels of mash in
an advanced state of fermentation.
The barrels were half buried in the
ground and were undoubtedly the
private booze stock of the bears.
