Hand Thrust Through Window
and Bullet Fired Which
Caused Death
By Associated Press
Freeport, X. 1., July I.—The police
and county authorities are seeking a
motive for the murder last night of
Mrs. William Bailey, wife of William
Bailey, of Hempstead, in the office of
Dr. Edward Carman. William Bailey,
husband o l'the dead woman, is a hat
manufacturer in Brooklyn. He was
surprised to leariv that his wife had
been a patient of Dr. Carman, and
declared that so far as he knew she
had no enemies. Dr. Carman, too,
told the authorities that he knew of
no cause for the crime, or reason to
believe the shot was intended for him.
Mrs. Hailey was shot through the
heart and died instantly. According
to Dr. Carman she arrived at his of
fice, which Is In his home, at 7.3 0
o'clock. An hour later, he said, she
was preparing to leave when a window
pane was broken, a man's hand hold
ing a revolver thrust in and the shot
fired that ended her life.
Chief of Police Roland M. Damb
began an Investigation with County
Detective Phieas Seaman. They found
that the window through which Dr.
Carman said the shot had been fired
was covered by a wire screen which
was operated by binges from above
and could be opened front the inside.
Further investigation showed that the
glass broken from the window and the
putty holding the glass had fallen
both inside and outside the room.
The mystery was further increased
when Bailey, the husband of the mur
dered woman, told the police that he
did not know that his wife had gone
to the doctor's office, lie was sur
prised when told that Mrs. Bailey was
accustomed to call on the doctor ac
casionally for treatment.
Visited sick Woman
Refore going to the doctor's office
Mrs. Bailey had visited Mrs. John C.
Crabau, who is ill at her home In
Rockville Center, and on leaving her
at fi o'clock had announced that she
was going directly home.
Outside of the tragic features of the
murder, the crime caused the most In
tense excitement here on account of
the social prominence and the wealth
of Dr. Carman and his family. Mrs.
Carman is the daughter of Frank
Clapp Conklin. one of the wealthiest
residents of the south shore of Bong
Island. Mr. Conklin make his home
with his ('aughter. Mrs. Hailey, who
was 3<l yeai. old, was small with a re
markably prett., figure and was con
sidered exceptionally handsome. She
always had been a leader In the social
affairs of her neighborhood. She
leaves two children, a daughter, Ada
lade, 17 years, find a son, 12 years old.
First Visit, lie Says
IT. Carman said to-day that Mrs.
Bailey's visit to his office last night
was her first and that he had not been
acquainted with her before that time.
Two men patients who were waiting
in the physician's outer office when
Mrs. Bailey was shot said they heard
no noise until they were startled by
the report of a pistol. When they en
tered the consultation room Mrs.
Bailey was dead and they helped Dr.
Carman carry her to a couch.
So many persons had trampled the
grass outside the window of the doc
toi s office that bloodhounds brought
to the scene to-day proved useless
