Director Twining declared that he was heartily in favor of the conduc
tion of every one of the lines included in the original Taylor plan, in due
time but he insisted that the comprehensive system as outlined by his
predecessor cannot bo built at the present time unless the people arc -willing
to postpone the universal five-cent fares to all parts of the city

hewas acting only in an advisory capacity and, while he had shown in
parallel lines what the Taylor plan in full would mean and what the
recommendations would mean, he was prcpnred to leave the issue with
Councils and the people.
-The report offered the following sug
rttd Improvements In tho Tnlor pro
gram: First That tho terms on which a com
prehensive system of rapid transit lines
cm be leased to an operator bo nscei
Ulned, and that no more construction
than Is now authorized be undei taken
until It la definitely ltnown by whom the
entire system la to be operated and upon
what terms
Second Divide the comprehensive plan
of.rputes Into two parts.
(a) Tho sections forming the trunk
lines In and through the 25-mlnuto
itreet-car zone from City Hall These
lines to be considered an terminals
and trunk lines, and being for the
general benefit pf the city as a whole,
they should bo financed on city bonds.
b) All extensions nnd brnnclii-H of
mi ell linen into outlying r suburban
territory arc lo lie ronxlilfred an for
total benefit chleflv. and the cunt (
eonntrnctlon of hiiUi extenlons and

As lepal authority foi such method
of Hnanclni? these extensions Is lack

I'eck, tossed on a bed in Bellovue's

thorities struck what they believe Is the
right clue uh to tho Identity of the man
Who revealed tho most monstrous poison
ing plot In New York's criminal annals
Delving Into the history of Eugene l)
Kane the undertaker, to whom Wnite
claims he paid $100A to swear. If oica

Tho telegram which first uncovered the
far that I'eck was poisoned was signed
"K Adams " It was nent to Peck's rela
tives in Grand Rapids and urged an au
tops on I'eck s hod. None of Peek's
iclatlves ever knew a "If Adams" Kane
lias not yet, been loiated, but here Is tho
way tho District Attorney's otllce links
him up with tho case:
If Kane received 19000, as Waite sas
he did, to say arsenic was used In em
balming, lie probably suspected some
thing was vviong
He remembered the fuss and notoriety
of tho Mollneaux case where arsenic wns
nlso the murderer's poisoning ngent
He wanted to establish safe ground
for himself, eo he wired the Peck family
a warning
The Mollneuv case was so much in his
mind that he used the name of the victim
as a signature
Mis Margaret Hortou was scheduled
for another session today with District
Attorney Swann to testlfj whether or not
she ever noticed dual personality In her
admirer Discussing the question with re
porters, Waite's companion at the Plaza
denied ever noticing any double character

CLEVELAND, March 29. At least thirty were killed the rxact total
may not be known until nightfall nnd more than forty injured in the vvieck
early today of three of the Now York Central's crnck passenger tialn", one
ot them tho Twentieth Century Limited, a mile west of Amherst, O.
Twenty-five bodies had been taken
to do in tne aeons.
A alip-up on the part of n dozing tower man is to blame for the wieck,
A. S. Ingalls, general supctintendent of the New York Central, decided this
afternoon after a hasty inquiry.
Ingalls, with L. A. Robinson, general passenger agent, and Daniel Mc
Bain, superintendent of motive power, held the mechanical equipment of
tho signal system faultless.
"My hasty inquiry shows plainly that the sleepy tower man is directly
responsible for tho wreck," declared Ingalls. "The fact that the tower
man's wife gave birth to a child Sunday night and that the tower man had
since been without sleep, either on duty or sitting up with his wife, is an
added factor.
"Had tho first section been allowed to proceed on its way, the accident
would not have occurred," Ingalls reasoned. "Chances are that the tower man
was dozing; unthinkingly he set the signal, the first section stopped shoit
the rest is known now."
