FACES COURT AGAIN
Smiles at His Sobbing Sister.
Voice Breaks When He Tells
Coroner His Age.
Jacob, alias "Doggie," Miller, confessed
slayer of Detcctlvo James Mnncclv aid
Detective Harrv Tucker, stood In tho
dock In tho Coroner's Court today and
heard tho details of tho death of tho
second victim of his automutlc revolver
without omotlon. After ho had been
formally Identified for th second tlmo
within a montli ns tho murdorer ho
glanced about tho crowded hearing room
nnd smiled as ho caught tho eyo of his
sister, Mary Miller, who was sobbing In
her scat. The young gunman will appear
beforo tho Grind Jury next Saturday,
which will bo IiIb 20th birthday annlvcr
ary. Tho only feeling betrayed by tho young
prisoner wob exhibited when ho was
asked his age. Ho had given his namo
in a firm voice. His hands, resting on tho
dock, were ns steady ns tho wood railing
h clasped. When the second question
came ho lost control of his emotions for
an instnnt. A shudder passed through his
I won't be 20 until next Snturdnv," ho
whispered in a volco bnrely audible to
tho two reserve policeman stationed at
his side. His reply had to be repeated
by the bluecoats for tho benefit of tho
court attendants. Tho former sailor then
gave his address at 507 Morris street.
A short tlmo beforo being brought to
the Coroner's court, tho young prisoner
had also carried himself through a pre
vious ordeal without llinching. Thin was
when he was nrralgned beforo Mnglstrnto
Beaton at Central Station. While tho
detectives were Identifying him, Miller
noticed the big reserve policeman on duty
at the entranco to tho City Hall pollco
court leave his station. The bluecoat
had bem eyeing him narrowly. Miller's
gazo failed to Mlnch, although ho. knew
tho policeman was Andrew Maneely,
brother of his first victim.
Young Miller was taken to tho Coro
ner's Court after being arraigned a short
tlmo previously before Magistrate Beaton
In Central Pollco Court. Hero ho was
Identified by Detective Adam Ulrlch, who
testified that ho had nrrested tho con
Tho proceedings were short and similar
to tho previous coroner's inquest Into the
death of Detective Maneely. Francis
Trucy lobin, nn attorney who has been
ictalned by tho young gunman' sister,
attempted to show that Tucker's death
wns duo to diphtheria. Jin nlo stated
that the ante-mortem identifications of
Tucker lind been forced from tho wound
ed detective and declared that Tuckor
had pointed out Miller as the slayer after
prompting by dotectlvcs who brought
him to the detectlvo's deathbed.
Dr. Frank E. McEvoy. of tho resident
staff of tho Episcopal Hospital, declared
on the stand that diphtheria had nothing
to do with the death of the detective.
Ho said he had succumbed to a bullet
wound. Tho shot, ho said, had paralyzed
Tucker from the third vertebra down and
lodged In the spinal column. Ono lung
had been punctured, ho said, which pro
vented tho doctors from attempting to
probe for the bullet.
Coroner's Physician William Wadsworth
also testified that the post-mortem ex
amination of the dead detective's body
showed conclusively that his death had
resulted from the bullet young Miller ad
mitting sending Into his captor's body
beforo killing Maneely.
Detectives Belshaw, Oscar Brown and
Olynleczak also testified.
The detectives gave short accounts of
tho crime. Tucker and Maneely, they
said, were shot on the evening of March
23. In nn alley near Trenton avenue and
Cambria street. Belshaw and Brown also
told of their assailant's subsequent cap
turn the next morning, and of his con
fession. After tho Inquest ho was hurried under
a strong guard to detcctlvo headquarters
nnd then returned to Moynmenslng
Prison. He told the police ho was glad
the ordeal was over. According to tho
detectives, the young prisoner appears to
be of the opinion that he will escape the
electric chair on account of his youth.
Music has Its charms In a police court
as well as anywhere else. This was very
evident today during the hearings at the
Trenton avenue and Dauphin street sta
tion. There was the usual sprinkling of
drunks and wife-beaters. They were
tired and gloomy and against the world

the Magistrate as common enemies. Such

soothing strains of "Then You'll Remem

The mumblings of the prisoners ceased,
and It was evident that the air had re
vived memories of other days. At that
moment the case of Jimmy Burns was
called. Ho was arrested while drunk by
Policeman Davis, near his home at Tren
ton avenue and York street,
Jimmy's wife Maggte appeared against
him. She said he was not a bad sort
when sober. His sober days were the
only days of happiness In the Burns
home, and, according to the wife, they
were few and far between. "I wish there
wasn't a drop of rum In the world," said
the woman, "then I'd know what It was
When Magistrate Mecleary said "three
months In the House of Correction."
Jimmy didn't even hear htm. He was
listening to the music. Even when the
cell door clanged, he gripped the Iron
rails and looked through. His wife
Maggie watched him from a distance.
As if divining her very thoughts, from
the Vlctrola suddenly burst forth the old
song, "When You and I Were Young,
Maggie." Jimmy's eyes grew moist. He
put his arms through the rails of the
cell door. His wife came forward and
clasped both hands. She would have no
doubt kissed him good-by were It not
for the Iron bars between him and happi
ness. "I wh you would put him la Jail for

Philadelphia lossa an annual aggre
gate of 19,000,000 days a year through
Illness. A completo and thoroughgoing
program for health conservation would
save tho city In earning power from
$13,000,000 lo $11,000,000 annually.
Those statements In the address of Prof.
Clyde L. King, of the University of Penn
sylvania, Wharton School of Finance and
Commerce, at tho Monday Conforenco on
Legislation In the Curtis Building, today,
summarized his analysis of the city's
needs for Immediate progress toward bet
ter conditions In regard to the prevention
of disease and tho conservation of health.
The figures were quoted by Mr. King
from tho statistics of Assistant Director
Wilson, of tho city Department of Publlo
Health and Charities, who had estimated
tho Incapacity through Illness of Phlla
delphlanB at 11 days a 'year on a par
"To carry out this program," said Mr.
King, "will Involve nn Initial capital out
lay of 15.600,000, distributed among tuber
culosis hospitals and Institutions for con
tagious diseases, branch sewers and
"This In turn will nccessltato n gradual
Increase of tho health budget from $370,000
to $1,650,000. In order that wo may dis
tribute such sums as $300,000 to saving
babies; $100,000 to school nursing, $50,000
to medical Inspection of workehops, $600,-
000 to mnlntenanco of hospitals for com
munlcablo diseases; $30,000 to additional
food Inspection nnd $103,000 for housing
"A second avenue for multiplying our
assets Is through Increasing tho vitality
of tho city earners by adequate recrea
tional facilities. Otto T. Mallery, presi
dent of tho City's Board of Recreation,
says that by 1933 at the present rate of
development Philadelphia may expect to
havo at least 15 large playgrounds so
scntercd over Its broad area that every
child and most adults may enjoy sane, ac
tive nnd accessible recreation, ns a
natural part of tho school or working
life. In addition, we are to expect about
50 smaller playgrounds.
"In arrests. In police protection. In
court procedure. In Juvenile detention
homes nnd In young women nnd young
men bankrupt physically and debauched
morally, tho taxpayers of American cit
ies aro dally rendering up their tribute
for the city's negligence In providing
adequate recreational facilities. This
tribute vastly exceeds tho sums that
would bo needed to provide proper recre
"A third avenue through which the city
can develop Its assets Is through adequate
protection of Its earners through proper
sanltntlon. housing facilities, and by
adopting the essentials to a constructive
program for assuring minimum housing
"The housing problem is important to
100 per cent, of our population; to SO
per cent. It Is a menacing question, men
acing becauso It Is so closely related to
moral growth, to proximity or non-proximity
to employment and Inadequacy
family income after the rental costs
havo been paid."
