were performing a manly act.
I assure you that if you shot this

You owe it to the family of tho
murdered youth as well as to the

since tho murder wo have not found the
smallest clue. Thero has not even been
a letter from a crank, Usually such a
mystery brings us several letters and tele

'Acting Captain Wood called upon every

CROSSES- IN 23 DAYS
By CARL W. ACKERMAN
BCULI.V, Aug. 21. Tho German com
merce submarine Deutschland eluded at
least eight English warships nnd a whole
fleet ot American fishing schoonerH in tho
employ of tho Allies when sho dashed out to
sea from tho Virginia capes on the night of
August 2, it wa3 learned hcio today.
Captain Koenig had no fear ot tho Allied
warship patrol when ho steamed southward
from Baltimore, but ho had not counted
on .tho American tchooncra hlied to help
trap hls vessel. Passing out of tho capes
the Deutschland encountered n great num
ber of theso schooners lying just outsldo
Chesapeake Bay. Tho schooners had dropped
their nets, ostensibly to fish. Their real
purpose, Captain Koenig said, was to mako
soundings for tho Dnutschland, alining to
algiml Allied warships if the subniarino
plunged through their nets.
Koenig telegraphed tho Ocean Company,
owners of his vessel, that the American
Government observed correct neutrality
throughout tho Doutschland's stand. Both
the British and French warships respected
American rights and mado no attempt to
approach within tho thrcc-mllo zone In
their efforts to trap tho submarine. How
many French warships wero engaged in
the patrol ho did not know.

MAYOR MAY OUST
HIS SAFETY CHIEF
TO SUIT PENROSE
Smith Persistently Rumor
ed About to Retire Director
Wilson, Vare Man
WOULD WIN OPPOSITION
A persistent rumor that Director William
H. Wilson, of tho Department ot Public
Safety, will return from his 'ncatlon ns n
private citizen became current In political
circles today. Tho rumor. It wan Bald,
could bo traced directly to tho factional
enemies of Wilson In the Republican Organl
atloti, but noutrnl political obscnern pointed
out that thero was some actual basis for
such n rcporf ns a result otvtho Grand
Jury vice Investigation.
It Is an established fact that the Pcnrose
McNIchol wing In tho Organization has been
laying plans to get Wilson's official head
nnd to supplant him with a man less In
clined to glo unswerving allegiance to tho
Vnros. Tho Grand Jury Investigation, It Is
said, gave them Just the opportunity they
had been seeking.
Testimony offered beforo the July Grand
Jury procd Ico In ovory form had flour
ished and giown under Wilson's police rule.
It became known after tho Jury made Its
formal report to Judge Itotlgers that some
membora of tho Investigating body had
favored a recommendation calling Wilson
to account for failure to clenn up tho city.
A majority, however, opposed this recom
mendation. WILSON FOES ACTIVE
Tho enemies of Wilson wero loud In
their declaration that the results of the
probe had established cither that corrup
tion had flourished with Wilson's knowl
edge nnd approval or that ho had proved
himself Incapable of tho ndmlnlstrntlon of
the affaire of the Department of Public
Safety. The frequent declaration of Mayor
Smith, that ho would clean up Philadelphia
no matter who might bo hurt politically,
was recalled In this connection.
it was also reported nt the beginning of
tho probe that tho spectacular Tenderloin
raid of July 15 bad been engineered by tho
Penrose-McNIchol leaders to embarrass the
Mayor either by proving him Insincere In
hl3 pledge. to wipe out vice or to forco him
to remove tho head of the department under
which tho corruption had been allowed to
The removal of Director Wilson, It is
said, would completely win the support of

WHEAT PRICES TO SOAR;
"BLACK RUST" IS CAUSE
May Reach Unprecedented Fig
ure; Belt of Northwest Swept
by Severe Epidemic
WASHINGTON, Aug. 21. "Black rust"
probably will be the cause of sending iWicat
prices, soaring to unprecedented heights
with the coming of the spring wheat out
put, according to the United States De
partment of Agriculture today. One offi
cial said ?2 wheat now appears probable.
One of the most severe epidemics of
"black rust" ever recorded has swept the
wheat belt of the Northwest, causing un
precedented damage, presaging a produc
tion far below normal.
Commercial reports arriving at the de
partment not only substantiate the predic
tions of the Government esperts, but, It Is
said, tend to- place the loss at a far greater
figure, with correspondingly high prices
certain for the fall and winter.
The Infected area Minnesota and the
two Dakotas produces, it is said, the great
er part of the spring crop. The reappear
ance of the Hessian fly, with the Inferior
quality of giain sown, will tend to reduce
greatly the crop In other sections of the
country, it Is said-
