Witness Found Who Saw the
Shooting Gives Police first
New York, Sept. 8. The police and
district attorney's office of Bronx conn-'
ty were still groping in comparative
darkneas today in their efforts to run
down the murderer or discover a motive
for the killing of Dwight Dilworth, well
to do attorney o'f Montclair, N. J., in
VanCortlandt Park Sunday night.
'mis was admitted at the district
attorney's office today, despite the
' fa(,t that a '
t .,.v. liS-ri,Ji
woman who is said
to have declared she witnessed the
shooting, told a story which at first
led police to predict an arrest would
soon be made. Investigation of thii
atory, in which the witness said Dil
worth was shot by a woman, left Dis
trict Attorney Martin in doubt. The in
vestigation of the girl's story continued
throughout the night and until early to
day. Woman Held the Pistol.
New York, Sept. 8. A woman shot
and killed Dwight Dilworth as he sat
in nis automoDiie in ' lovers lane" in
Van Cortlnndt Park, in the opinion
or me ponce today.
After days of fruitless search for
some clue that would establish a defi
nite motive for tho killing of Dilworth
the case took on a new air of mystery
ronay wnicn promises to lead to an ar
rest, and the unfolding of a story of
jealousy of wounded pride or the ire
of a ''woman scorned," rivalling any
or tne murder mysteries of New V ork.
The police and district 'attorney's of
fice let it be known that they expect
to maae an arrest today. And the per
son to be arrested is a woman.
All search for "masked highwaymen "
or possible blackmailers was dropped
early today when new evidence said to
have come from a new found witness
of the shooting of Dilworth wns given
District Attorney Martin of the Bronx.
Shortly before midnight last night
MisB Mary McNiff, the young woman
companion of Dilworth on his fntal
ride into' the park, was summoned to
the district attorney's office. She was
again questioned by Assistant District
Attorney Quiglcy. and detectives.
Then the attention of the authorities
was turned to the newly discovered
witnesses. These witnesses are a young
man and young wmnn who told Quig
ley they were in the park near the
scene of the shooting when Dilworth
was killed. An anonymous letter from
another woman gave the police their
first clue. Thin letter told of the wo
man having heard the witness, who was
questioned, say she witnessed the
shooting. The writer of the letter was
first found and questioned. Then the
young woman 'she named was brought
to tho Kings Bridgo station and final
ly her companion.
The young woman at first denied
knowledge of the shooting, but con
fronted by the original informant of
the authorities, she is said to have con
fessed to witnessing the killing. The
revolver from which the fatal shots
were fired, was held by a woman, she

Public Service Commission
Asks Company to Explain
Cause of Car Shortage
September 20 has beeu set by the
state public service commission as the
date when the Southern Pacific Rail
way company will be asked to explain
why it has failed to supply sufficient
cars to meet the needs of Oregon ship
pers. The hearing will be held in Portland.
, Notice of the commission's intention
to make as thorough a probe of the car
shortage as the scope of its authority
will permit was sent to all interested
parties yesterday, including President
Sproule of the Southern Pacific, who is
urged to be present nt the hearing.
The purpose of the investigation
It is intended to provide an,
opening or the making of a formtl
i.nm,,loint tn tli i i, t rnt ii t iim mprc
commission, and the issuance ot an or
der by the commission relative to the
shortage of cars for intrastate ship
ments. . There is no law limiting the scope
of the inquiry that can be made by the
commission in the matter, but the com
mission is powerless to issue an order
compelling the company to furnish cars
for interstate shipments. It can only
file formal complaint with the inter
state commerce commission. The results
of the proposed hearing will serve as a
basis for such a complaint.
.Among the complaints received of
late by the public service commission
are several from shippers who have or
dered cars for intrastate shipments. The
commission has jurisdiction in this.
. The car shortage on the Southern
Pacific north of Ashland has today
heached a total of more than 1,,'iOO cars.
So far as is known at tile office of the
public service commission, the Southern
Pacific is the only railroad ill Oregon
which is failing to keep the shippers on
its lines supplied with sufficient cars
to meet their needs. Tho Southern Pa
cific is serving its patrons in all other
states of its territory except Oregon.
. What was thought at first to be noth
ing more than a temporary inconven
ience has become a most serious prob
lem for many of the mills and manu
facturing concerns in Oregon. A num
ber of them declare that failure to
secure cars at once will force them into
the hands of a receiver. Others have
beeu compelled to close down, throwing
their men out of employment. Orders
are being cancelled daily because of the
inability to deliver.
One instance in which the 'failure to
obtain cars worked a double hardship is
that of the Lwana Box factory of Kla
math Falls, which was unable to deliver
a large order of shocks to cantaloupe
growers in California. The fruit rot
ted on the ground while the shook s
waited ou the company's platform at
Klnmath Falls for cars.
Orders for lumber products placed
with Oregon concerns have, been can
celled and tken to Washington concerns,
and the products have been left ou the
hands of the Oregon manufacturers.
The car shortage is more acute in the
Willamette valley than elsewhere. Hard
ly a shipper in the valley has been able
to obtain cars ordered from the youth
The public service commission has in
