Damaging Evidence in Elm Hurst
BLOODY CLOTHES LOCATED
Henry Becker Arrested For Murder of
Fifteen-Year-Old , Girl Claims He
Was With Man Who Committed the
XEW YORK, May 23. Further dam
aging evidnce has been found against
Henry Becker, the suspect held for the
mnrder of Amelia Staffield, at Elm
hurst, L. I. WeJnsday, according to
the police today. Following the dram
atic confession of Becker before the cof
Jn of the girl in which he said he saw
the murder committed and claimed thnt
S wag done hr a man in whose com
pany he wa, but did not know, the po
lice report that they found in a Chi
lese laundry at Elmhurst, a shirt which
Becker had taken there shortly after
I the gir was murdered. The shirt bad
two large spot on it, which looked as
though they were blood stain. The
shirt was obtained by means of a laun
dry ticket that was found in Becker's
pocket. The discovery of the garment,
with iU suspicious spots, is considered
significant, in view of Becker's state
ment that bo had nothing to do with
the murder excepting that he stood by
as a witness. The police argue that the
stains, if they are blood, could not have
been made uness Becker stood closer to
the victim of the crime than he admits.
Another link in the increasing chain of
evidence is a small hamlkefthidf which
Becker had in his possession. In one
corner there is embroidered the initials
"S." The handkerchief was missed
missed on Wednesday afternoon by Mrs.
Eva Simonson shortly after the disap
pearance of Becker and his companion
who had cleansed their hands at her
pump, mere are several small spots
on the handkerchief. The detectives
believe they are blood stains. They will
be analyzed by a chemist. Mr, Simon-
son has identified the handkerchief as
that of her son. The police have se
cured a minute description of Becker's
companion, and have every confidence
that they will have him in custody
within 24 hours.

iuug scruples against capital punishment
could not be permitted or required to
serve. He aaked the counsel what they
bad to say about the matter. Borah
questioned Tourtellotte further on M
willingness to inflict the death penalty
on the members of an organization
eeking to destroy society, saying that
the state was quite willing to rest its
case on that proposition, Tourtellotte
restated his position as to anarchy but
protested that this was the erne how
ever, and satisfied the state.
Neither side would challenge nor
offer and further suggestion and there
the matter rested. Counsel for the
state said privately after adjournment
that the incident could not constitute
an error in the- case and that there
existej no means whereby either aide
could in the future plead it. It
in thought probable that when it comes
time to swear the jury, Tourtellotte will
refuse the oath and compel the court to
excuse him from serving.
Both sides found a pay srtciik of
qualification in the second section of
the special venire and besides Tourtcf
lotte two other talesmen qualified.
They are Finley McBean, whose exami
nation was in progress at adjournment
lnt night and E. F. Crow, a retired
farmer who now lends a little money
for a living. Crow was almost Imme
diately challenged by the defense but
his appearance, however, brief, lifted the
eaae -and tlie challenge forward. The
defense also challenged Juror John
Whitloek todny and the state chal
lenged Juror George Mclntyre, The
vacancy created by the sixteenth chal
lenge i still unfilled, there are fouf
challenges unexpended and there are 12
talesmen of the second special venire
left unexamined. The pay streak ran
out before the day was over and unless
there is mighty good luck with the
little squad oif unused talesmen there
will have to be another adjournment
sometime on Monday and a third special
The long strain of jury getting seems
to be showing on the nerves of those
who are doing the work. Today when
the state challenged a talesman for bias,
Attorney Richardson remarked that
the stt had tried enough to qualify
him. Ilawley took serious offense at
the remark and said that it was untrue
and aked for the protection of the
court saying that things are going to
be different ifrom now on.
Judge Wood told him to sit down,
but the order bad to be repeated before
it was obeyed.
The court continue to stiffen against
the release of talesmen on excuse light
and frivolous. Today Judge Wood took
a hand in the examination of every
talesmen and nude sure of the exist
ence of disqualification before aceeeding
