Will Search Woods NO SERIOUS DISORDER, STATE OFFICIALS SAY Commissioner of Puhlic Safety Alfred F. Foote said today that all he knew about disorders in connection with the strike was what he read in the newspapers. He said that he keeps no tabulation of reports of disorders or outbreaks and in many cases does not receive reports of such disorders until two or three days after they have happened. Herman A. MacDonald, Gov Cox’b private secretary, said that no serious disorder had been reported, so far as he knew, but that several assaults have been committed. Gov Cox and Mrs Cox started today for the Profile House, Franconia, N H, for a couple of days and, lf things go along smoothly In the railroad strike, they may remain three or four days longer. The Governor left the State House last night for Wellfleet and this Wilfred Burgoyne, aged 13, and hie brother, Harold, 12, of 36 Shore av, Salem, were taken to Lynn today to look over a suspect. Hie police, however, were utta/We to locate the particular man they wanted the boys to look at so the youngsters returned to their home and will go again to Lynn as soon as the authorities get the man they want in custody. They know his nfme and address and so forth but were just not able to locate him today. It is said that he bas been knows to assault boys before and In a general way answers the descriptions of the man seen with the murdered boy. According to the Burgoyne boys the man who was with McMahon was of medium complexion, tall, j wore a blue suit and green cap. j The police have announced that to-j morrow all the special and reserve officers of the force will be called for duty to search the woods in the vicinity in which the murder was committed.

System Federation Criticism of Gov Cox for his call to the State constabulary Is expressed by W. K. Cleary, secretary of the Boston A Maine System Federation, in this statement issued by the strikers today: ’’In a report of Gov Cox he says that no disutrbance of any kind in this Stateghad taken place, and then under cover of darkness he orders the State constabulary to protect railroad property. We consider that this Ss the limit. Here Is where the dear public pays, and the strikers, being a large part of the public.

Dr Atwood made a preliminary examination of the body yesterday before it was removed to the Salem Hospital Morgue, but preferred to reserve his decision as to the manner of the death until he shall have had an opportunity to examine the body thoroughly, to question witnesses and to study the large blood-stained rocks which surrounded the spot where the dead body lay. In the meantime, local police continued their search for the mysterious tall, foreign-looking and light-oomplextoned young man who was with thai boy when he was last seen alive on Tuesday.

July 22-The Fire Department was called out last evening and soon extinguished flames in the cab of a locomotive In the B. & A. round plaintiffs, this morning said that notices have been sent out setting next Frday as the date of a hearing for the appointment of a master in the ease. The area in complaint is bounded by _ the boulevard (to the North Shore), Ev-so; erett av, the city of Chelsea line, 2d SO j and East Elm Ste In East Everett, and that part of the city of Chelsea which adjoins Vale, Locust and the surrounding streets. It is alleged that, although the condition of this region has been brought to the attention of Chelsea and Everett officials many times during th se house on Beach ate. The blaze was of accidental origin. An effort was made to drive th* engine out of the house, but the cab and boller were too hot to allow of that. The woodwork Ut wholly destroyed. for many Italians and others In the neighborhood, have, it is alleged, in many instances, been ruined by the failure of the drainage system to operate. • After stating that Island End River has always been a natural drainage waterway for the area, and that up to a few years ago It has successfully performed Its function, the bill filed by attorney Corcoran for the plaintiffs states that “within recent years the defendant cities have undertaken to cause said natuarl waterway to be restricted at WILL NOT RUN FOR DISTRICT ATTORNEY ast four or five years, only promises of { certain points by the laying of drains due to the building of streets or other- Sec MacDonald Keeps Out of Essex Contest betterment have been forthcoming The result has been, it is stated, that individuals have been driven from their homes and places of business because the drainage system of the area has been allowed to become stopped up, that a continual stench arises from the stagnant water, that mosquitoes are so thick that it is itnposible to work in the district, and that they have become a wise, and at other points have changed ' Herman A- MacDonald, secretary to the course of the said stream, diverting; „ *    i it through drains on private property, (JOV ^'ox’ ann°unF«d today that, a1 and have otherwise controlled said wa terway and have dumped or caused to be dumped ashes and certain other refuse material in and upon said creek Continued on the Eighth Page. I port, he would not be a candidate for though he had received offers of sup** the Republican nomination for district Attorney of Essex County, but would devote himself to the renomination and reelection of Gov Cox. Woman Describes Man The man was described by Mrs Margaret Groan and her son, Walter, who live at the Toll House, Highland av, believed to be the last persons, except his companion, to see yogng McMahon alive, as being tall, foreign looking, rather yoang and of light complexion. He wore a green cap and a blue suit. He was accompanying tho McMahon boy along Highland av In the direction of Lynn last Tuesday, the day the boy disappeared. When Walter Crean called to the McMahon boy, the latter waved his hand back at his friend. Mrs Crean questioned her son as to the identity of the boy, who was walking with his hand In that of GEOUGE M. PALMER. When Mr Palmer’s body was found, there was a gash in the throat that had savored th® jugular vein. Later examination showed a pool of blood on the bridge, but there was no sign of any struggle. Today, in an interview with a representative of the Globe, Mrs Palmer said that she believes her husband did not commit suicide but met with foul play. She last saw him alive about 6:30 last night. At that time he was dressed In old clothes and was working In the garden, She left for Framingham to get a nephew and thought Mr Palmer was undoubtedly in the best of spirits. When she returned at midnight sh# learned of her husband's death. Mrs Palmer said that he was always In good health, despite the fact that he was somewhat delicate. Continued on tho Eighth Page, -JI He Was -Never Despondent According to her statements, Mr Palmer never contemplated suicide and was at no time despondent. It la her belief that he was mistaken for some one else who had enemies and that he may have been killed for vengeance wrongly placed. She said that neither she nor her husband had any enemy that they knew of. Her conclusion is that, her husband while fixing the garden, may have discovered some one robbing the house and have been killed as a rsult. Nothing has been missed from the house and change that hte dead man had in his pocket was still there when the body was found floating in the water. When asked lf any sharp instrument is missing from the home, Mrs Palmer said that all her husbands razors were accounted for and everything else with which he might have taken his life. The George Palmer, a 21-year-old son, shares the same belief as his mother and is determined that a rigid investigation be made. The Palmer home is only two house# from the point where the discovery of the body was made and Is in a wooded section. When Mr Palmer was work-ing in the garden he was very near thick shrubbery and trees, and it would have been possible for some one to spring out and kill him unawares. Chief Inspector William H. Kane said that so far as he knows no foul play was committed and that the report of Capt John Curry, who was on the case last night, did not denote that Mr Pal- mer tlieed from anyone’s hand hut own. According to the report of Medical Examiner Breed, Mr Palmar was nearly dead before the body fell Into the water. Why Did the Body Float? Many people are mystified about th* way the body floated to the surface so quickly. Several years ago, another body, found in the same place, had been underneath the water tor nine or til days. Tile body of Mr Palmer wa* heavily weighted and ordinarily would be in the water some time before it would come to the surface. Continued on the Eighth Page, ;
