SCULPTOR SAYS COP
FLIRTED WITH WIFE
Policemnn Who "Uses" His
Eyes Accused of Hugging
A dapper young policemnn who was
4Uoted as saying that he was "not afraid
to die" was before the Police Board of
Inquiry today nccused of conduct unbe
coming an officer In paying too much ot
tcntlon to tho pretty 22.year-old wife of
Peter Albert Schroeder, a sculptor and
former ofllccr In the Germany army.
The bluccoat Is nenjamtn Schurr, of
the Front nnd Master streets station.
Schroeder testified that tho alleged flirta
tion between his wife and the policeman
had been going on for some time beforo
ho learned of It. He produced a number
of notes that he said had been written
by the woman to Schurr. ,
On ono occasion, according to Schroeder,
his wlfo nnd Schurr had nn engagement
to meet at 63d and Market Btreets.
Schroeder heard about It nnd Insisted on
going along. When he saw Schurr he
went up and demanded to know tho man's
name. Finally Schurr told him. In tho
course of tho argument that followed, ac
cording to Schroeder, Schurr said:
"All men are pigs, If a man has 20
wives, ho wants 21."
When Schroeder, after telling Schurr
what ho thought of him, was about to
lcavo with his wife, ho says Schurr
"Well, shall wo greet each othor when
wo meet upon tho street hereafter, or
shall we act as though wo wero strang
ers?" "I don't want you to talk to mo or to
my wife," said Schroeder.
"Oh, Albert," said Mrs. Schroeder, "let
the gentleman speak to us."
Schroeder, however, was adamant, ac
cording to his own story, and he and
his wife left.
Schurr's story was that ho went Into
tho Schrocders" house ono morning and
asked Mrs. Schroeder to cook his break
fast, saying ho was all alone.
"I'm all alono every day," said Mrs.
The handsome patrolman then caught
the woman in his arms and gave her
several hugs and kisses. It was testlflcd.
Counsel for Schurr brought out that
Schroeder beat his wife for receiving
Schurr's attentions. Neighbors heard her
cries for help and sent another police
man In to see what was wrong.
Schroeder refused to answer when
asked if he was not under ball In this
or some other case.
Mrs. Schroeder testified that she tried
to keep Schurr away by saying that her
husband would kilt him.
"I'm not afraid to die," he said.
Schroeder asserted that Schurr threat
ened to arrest him at ono time, but, on
being dared to carry out his threat, lost
Mrs. Schroeder, who Is about 22 years
old and attractive, ln describing her oc
cupation, said she Is a trained nurse and
a licensed chauffeur.
Tho bluccoat maintained an attltudo of
calm throughout the hearing. Ho Is
slightly below tho average build and
handsome, with flashing dark eyes that
ho "uses" considerably.

AUTO OWNERS MUST
PAY CENT MORE PER
GALLON FOR GASOLINE
This Is Second Increase in tho
Retail Price of Puel Within
Period of Two Weeks.
Charge Now Is 15 Cents
FUEL OIL RESPONSIBLE
Tho retail price of gasoline has been
Incrcnscd a cent a gallon for tho second
tlmo ln two weeks. Motorists now are
paying 15 cents a gallon. Tho increase,
according to officials of tho Texas Com
pany, ono of the price raisers, Is duo to
tho continued Jump ln tho prlco of crude
oil, from which gasoline Is refined
Virtually tho whole country will be
affected by the order, nnd Philadelphia,
with Its hosts of nutomoblllsts, will pay
heavily. Tho tno Increases, If tho esti
mated number of 30,000 automobiles within
a short riding distance of City Hall Is
correct, will mean an extra tax on car
owners of approximately U.S00.00O an
nually. The Increase In tho prlco of crude oil
Is duo partly to the fact that the output
of the big oil wells Is decreasing. It being
150.000 barrels a day less than It was a
few months ago. The Importation of oil
from Russia, whose big oil fields pro
duce the beet grade of oil, has reached
a minimum nnd will continue at this low
point until tankers can have a clear way
from tho Russian ports, cither on the
Black or Baltic Seas, to this country.
The price of crude oil has Jumped from
CO to CO cents on a barrel of VI gallons,
and tho ejemand Is growing faster than
the supply. No wells with high dally
capacities havo been struck lately. The
prlco of gasoline may be lowered again
if a prolific oil well Is struck In one of
this country's fields.

The Metal Trades' Council has had
Beveral conferences for the discussion of
a striko In event of the company refusing
their demands. They asserted today that
demands would bo made on the Ualdwln
l.ocomotlvo Works In this city as well as
on tho Tlemlngton Arms Compnny, and
that a strike would certainly be called If
the demands were refused.
Thero Is no npparent Indication of a

tq assert that any strike called now will
provo a failure. The men, they said, need
money too much to obey the mandates
of the union.
