The city now faces an expense of $500 to clear away the rubbish left lyinjr in the Parkway site occupied
by "Billy" Sunday's tabernacle before excavation can begin on the new library operations. The Sunday
Campaign Committee, refusing to accept tho blnmo for .the donations of sawdust, broken chairs, hatpins,
and boards left on tho tabernacle lot, says that some of the McNichol workmen engaged on the Parkway
improvement deposited the stuff on tho vacant lot. This view was taken by an Evening Ledger photo
grapher this afternoon.

The Penrosc-McNIchol faction will have

Smith and Organization "harmony" on
the mayoralty, have not yet withdrawn,
hut are expected to do so tomorrow.
Senator Boles Penrose, who 20 years ago
started Thomas B. Smith In tho bonding
business and through whose Influence
Smith was appointed Poatmaster by
President Taft, today lauded Smith as
being fully qualltled for Mayor, It was
tho first statement Penroso has made on
the mayoralty.
The Senator annbunced that "harmony"
was "very gratifying" to him, and, of
course, predicted an overwhelming Re
publican victory In November. He did
not mention Congressman Vare, who yes
terday withdrew from the Organization
mayoralty race In favor of the Penrose
McNkhol candidate, Smith.
"I havo no doubt In my mind that the
Republican ticket will be elected by a
larger majority than the ticket received
last November," said Senator Penrose.
"I am. of course, gratified that har.
mony exists In the working organization
of the Republican party, and I believe
that the candidate for Mayor who has
been agreed upon will command the con
fidence of ovcry one and will have all
the qualifications of character and expe
rience to a peculiar degree that will tit
him to give a successful administration
ot the rlty government.
"I have known Mr. Smith very well
for over to years and am, of course,
more than usually familiar with his ad
ministration In the PostotTtce Department
at Philadelphia. He was one of the best
postmasters who ever administered the
Philadelphia Postofflce, and the qualities
which he displayed there give assurance
of an equally successful administration

this may be done about (500 must be spent
to remove the material obstacles in the
way of sawdust, dirt, hat pins, pennies,
broken chairs and various other kinds of
rubbish that Is of no use to any one, and
so has been permitted to remain on the
Joseph M. Steele, chairman oft the cam
paign committee, believes the rubbish was
put on the lot by workmen employed by
one of the McNichol contracting com
panies engaged on Parkway Jmprove
mentft. He will hold a conference with
Henry It. Edmunds, president of the
library board, within a few days.
This determination was arrived at by
Mr. Steele after he had received a com
munication from another official of the
library board, deputized by Mr. Edmunds.
The letter set forth In harrowing detail,
It is understood, the unsightly condition
of the lot, and asked that the Sunday
Campaign Committee immediately take
steps to remove the debris.
As In tho Kcegan case, however, Mr.
Steele declined responsibility for the com
mittee. He will attempt to prove this to
the satisfaction of Mr. Edmunds and
other members of the library board. Mr.
Edmunds Is authority for the statement
that unless the rubbish is removed by
the committee legal action will be

Mrs. Mohr Says She Has- Been

absolutely Innocent," said Mrs. Elizabeth
Blair Mohr today, after spending the
night with her children at home, follow

She absolutely denied all knowledge ot
the alleged conspiracy that resulted In
the killing; of her husband, Dr. C, Frank
lin Mohr, and the wounding of his house
keeper. Miss Emily Burger.
The funeral of Doctor Mohr, held today
from his residence, win arranged by Mrs.
Mohr and carried out under her direction.
It was private.
Mrs. Mohr Robbed softly throughout
tho funeral services. With her as mourn
ers were only the doctor's son by his first
wife, her daughter. Virginia, and Doctor
Mohr'a brother. Dr. Charles Mohr, of
McEwensvIlIe, Pa. Mrs. Mohr gavo per
mission for newspapermen to attend the
A large crowd gathered outside the
Mohr residence, and a battery ot cam
eras was trained on the accused widow
as she entered a carriage for tho ceme
tery. She made no attempt to shield
herself from the photographers.
"I knew nothing about the dreadful
conspiracy until the detectives told me,"
Mrs. Mohr declared. "They shot and
killed Doctor Mohr and then tried to
frame mo up. Yes, It was a frame-up,"
For cool nerve, Mrs. Mohr Is remark
able. She was tho first to reach her
husband's bedside at the Rhode Island
Hospital. Within a few hours after his
death she applied for the custody of his
property, ntnountlng to $230,000. She has
smiled nnd laughed ever since her arrest.
That tho threo negroes, George W.
Ilcalls, Henry Spellman nnd Cecil Brown,
have made detailed confessions that tho
physician's wife promised them $5000 to
kill Doctor Mohr and disllguro Miss Bur
ger apparently has not shaken the nerve
of Mrs. Mohr. After her release on bail,
she went, practically a free woman, to her
little homo and amused herself with her
children, ns though she had not a care
In the world.
Efforts already aro being mnde by the
authorities to get In touch with Doctor
Mohr's first wife, said to be In New
York. Little has been known here of
the former Mrs. Mohr since she figured
In a sensational alienation suit brought
In 1897 by Doctor Mohr against Dr. Wil
liam Stevens, of New York. v
Mrs. Mohr and tho three negroes are to
bo arraigned before Judge Hammll at
Warren, in Brlstot County, on September

bullet wound In her Jaw and shoulder,

young woman was out of danger.
Tho name of another woman, Miss Flor

tendant, has been brought Into the murdor
Miss Emily Burger, who was riding with
Doctor Mohr when ho was shot, docs not
know that her companion was killed. She
continually asks for him and about his
condition, nnd la betas' assured that
"Doctor Mbhr Is resting well."
Physicians at the Rhode Island Hospi
tal are afraid to tell her of the death of
Doctor Mohr, fearing It might shock her
too much In her present critical condi
tion. Miss Burger, lying in bed todny, told
tho story of the shooting and of hor
friendship with Doctor Mohr.
"I tried for a long time to reconcile
Doctor Mohr nnd his wife," said Miss
Burger, "but it was Impossible. Doctor
Mohr felt very bitterly toward his wife,
and when my efforts to bring them to
gether failed I did not feel that It was
wrong for mo to go out with Doctor
"On the night of tho shooting Doctor
Mohr and I started out from Stewart
street with the negro chauffeur Healls
driving tho car. Healls drove recklessly.
Doctor Mohr spoke to me about a half
dozen times concerning the rate at which;
Healls was going, but he did not order
Healls to check up.
"We were somewhat surprised and P
was a little suspicious when Healls sud
denly stopped tho car with a Jerk under
a big tree on the road. That was whtre
mo oiiuuiiiik occurrea. iieaiis stooped
over and put out the headlights. Then
he climbed out of the car and began to,
tinker with the engine.
"He remarked: 'I am having trouble
with tho gasoline,' but neither1 Doctor
Mohr or I spoke to him.
"Suddenly I heard a loud report. I
thought It was the engine backfiring. la
another moment thcro was another re
port and I Jumped to my feet. Both
sounded llko back fire from the exhaust.
I saw blood flowing from Doctor Mohr's
face. Aa I looked I felt a sharp pain
In roy shoulder, the right one, and then
another burning pain In my neck.
"I still thought there had been an ac
cldcnt to tho machine."
"The first thing I did then was to Jumi
out of the car Into the roadway. I don't
remember whether I climbed over the
door or opened It. I didn't see anybody
but Healls. As I stood In the road h-J
grabbed me by the arm, dragging me
under the tree and threw me down oru
the ground. The left side of my face
struck something and I don't remember
anything else. I didn't see any other
people except Healls and Doctor Mohr."
Rest is relative. To some
it's sleep; others think it's
serene, loafing ; but a noted
Philadelphian's idea of a
quiet time is to chase
around wild things in the
bitter cold. The "tran
quility" of this merchant-hunter-lecturer
in Alaska
furnishes the material for
''Real Rest" by Walter
Dunn. The story appear
