Passenger on the New York, Was in Fact Mary Johnson. SECRET AT LAST DISCLOSED Tells . Ellis Island Board That She Adopted Man's Attire to Get On In the World She Also Had a Mustache. Dressed In a dark suit and wearing a slouch hat set raklshly on a thatch of black hair showing gray about the temples, Frank Woodhull. DO years old and a native of Canada, walked up the broad entrance to the immigration station on Ellis Island yesterday morning. With him were 150 other passengers, all of whom had occupied quarters In the steerage of the American liner New Tork, which arrived here on Saturday. An hour after the procession passed Into the bulldlna Woodhull left the private room of one of the matrons In a state of agitation, shorn of the name Frank Woodhull. The passenger was in fact Mary Johnson, an English-Canadian woman, who adopted men's dress. She confessed that she had so disguised her self to have a better chance in the world and because of a mustache which nature bestowed on her. Later in the day the woman was taken before a Board of Spe cial Inquiry. Standing before the table behind which sat the five board members, the woman, still In man's ' clothes and occasionally raising a nervous hand to stroke her mustache, told the story of her life and her successful struggle for a place In the world during the fifteen years she had lived land worked as a man with men. Her story is that of an honest, hard working woman, who, in spite of discarding skirts, lived a blameless life, and the board members were so impressed that it is. not uniixeiy mat Mary Johnson win be allowed to no her way. Her Secret Disclosed. f Frank Woodhull. 60 years old. a Ca nadian; thirty years In the United States; bound for New Orleans." Is the record of Mary Johnson on the manifest of the New Tork. There was no question as to the sex of the passenger during the voyage. Her voice is soft and rather low. In addition her long life in male attire has trained her to take a man's part with unconscious ease. When being interrogated by Deputy Commissioner Joseph Murray she dug both hands into her trousers pockets just as a man might nave anne in perplexity. The discovery of her sex was made by chance. One of the Marine Hospital surgeons "on the line " was rapidly passing the New York's passengers when he came to Mary Johnson. He looked over, and deciding that she was rather slight of build for a man. asked her to step to one side. Intending to put her through a tuberculosis test. It was then that the woman, knowing that discovery was Imminent, confessed her sex. " My life," she said, has always been a struggle. I come of an Bngl!sh-Ca-nadlan family, and I have had most of my fight to make all alone. Thlrtr years ago. when I was 20, my father died and I was thrown entirely on my own re sources. I came to this country a young girl and went West to make my way. For fifteen years I struggled on. The hair on my face was a misfortune. It was often the subject of rude Jest find caused me endless embarrassment. The struggle was awful, but I had to live somehow, and so I went on. God knows that life has been hard, but of the hardness of those years I cannot speak. . Looked Like av Man. "Then came a time fifteen years ago when I got desperate. ' I had been told that 1 looked like a man. and I knew that In Canada some women have put on men's clothes to do men's work. So the thought took shape In my mind. If these women had done It why could not I, who looked like a man? I was In California at the time. I bought men's clothes and began to wear them. Then thinas changed. I had prospects. My occupation I have given here as a canvasser, but I have done many things. I have sold books, lightning rods, end - worked in stores. Never once was it susnected that I was other than Frank Woodhull. I nave lived my life and tried to live It well. Most of the time I have been In California, but now I am going to New Orleans, where there are chances of employment. " I have never attemnted to tske em citizenship papers. I knew that to do so would do ettber to reveal my sex or else become a lawbresker. I have never been the latter. I did not know that there was a law against women we ring male attire In this State or I would have sailed to another port. " My folks enme originally from England and It had long been my wish to go there and take a look about. So with a measure of success the longing grew snd I began to save up for mv holiday. I went over in the steerage two months ego and returned the same way.". The woman was assigned to a private room In the Kills Island Hosnltal. and there she awaits the word of the Board of Special Inquiry fhst may allow her to 'go out and as Frsnk Woodhull again face the world. If discharged she must go from Kills Island as a woman to meet the reoulrements of the law, but thereafter she will be free to choose her own' manner of life.

ARREST HIM AND FRIENDS After a Run of Two Miles Done- In Championship Time They Dldnt Know They Were Violating the Law. Harvey Cohn, the Olympic runner, and five companions, with the assistance of a young woman of exaggerated sensibilities, according to the boys, gave the policemen attached to the Parkvllle Station, in Ocean Parkway, in Flatbush. the run of their Jives yesterday afternoon. The young- woman, very flushed and in dignant, drove up to the police station In an automobile, and. going In before Lieut. Duffy, complained that It waa an outrage for half -clothed young men to run up and down the parkway, where many women were riding In carriages and automobiles. " I have been greatly shocked," declared the sensitive complainant, "and I think you should stop It." Lieut. Duffy managed to learn finally that the. - half -clothed " men were six1 youths who were running along the cinder paths In ther-parkway In regulation running costumes. As a complaint had been made, however, Duffy agreed to atop the runners since they were violating the Sunday": law and so he ordered every available pollcemsn on reserve duty to go out and catch the boys. Not knowing that they had been assigned to overtake Harvey Cohn, the policemen started blithely enough, big ones and little ones, thin ones and fat onea The latter dropped out before the chase had proceeded half a mile. Far ahead of them sped - the runners, and it seemed hopeless to catch them. Some of the policemen stuck to it. however. Down the Parkway went the pursuers and their quarry, the latter not yet aware that they were being chased, but hurrying none the less aa a matter of exercise. From the Parkvllle Police Station to the Park Circle Is the better part of two miles, and .It was this run which those of the policemen who stuck to it were obliged to make. Even then they might not have caught the runners had not some one shouted to the boys that they were being followed. Then Cohn and his com panions stopoed. The policemen were breathless when they came up, and they were almost ex hausted by the time they got the boys DacK to tne station house. Lieut. Durry read them the law and then told them that they were all arrested. He let them telephone" for ball, however, and pres ently eacn or tne iaas was at liberty to ro. None dared leave the station In their running costumes, however, for fear or catching cold after their enforced rest, and so they stayed In the station house until mends came with apparel for them. Cohn and his frlenda among whom were Joseph Hardmeyer of 222 East Fifth Street. Michael J. Powers of 60 Poplar Street. Ralph Biggs of 681 Tenth Street, Harold SUverberg of 622 Court Street, and Edward Shell of 25 Tompkins Avenue, were all indignant at their arrest. They were particularly angry when they found that the young woman who made the complaint nad not stopped to see the result of it. but had gone off In her automobile without even 1 carina; her name and address. AH of them said thev were members ef various athletic clubs and were running for training. But the anger of the boys waa not a circumstance to' that of thepollcemen who had had to catch them. For the rest of the day they lay about and scarcely able to move. OUTWIT STUDENT EXPEDITION. , Jamaican Syndicate Seeks a 8unken 8panlah Galleon, but In Vain. . KINGSTON, Jamaica, Oct. 4.

Divers were seat down and a number of Spanish gold coins were recovered, but nothing of any great value. The leader of the expedition was the son of Sir Henry Arthur Blake, who waa Governor of Jamaica from 1889 to 180T. The location of tha wreck, which la believed to be near Silver Cay, between Puerto Plata and Turks Island, has been visited frequently during the last few centuries, first by an expedition fitted out by the Duke of Albemarle, who was Governor of Jamaica In 1687. Even ' as late as 1902 10.000 pieces of eight were brought into Kingston Harbor by a party of divers. , In the ease of the latest expedition.' which has just returned, the tempestuous weather intenerea greatiy wun aiving operations. It is intended to refit and undertake a more systematic search at an early date. . . NEWSPAPER PRINTED BY AUTO. When Publisher's Engine Broke Down Constant Reader Came to the Rescue. Spetiat W Tkt Ntw York timts. ' BLOOMFIELD. N. J.. Oct. 4. An automobile played an Important part yesterday to the publishing of a newspaper here. The engine used to run the press In the office of The Bloomf leld Cltlsen broke down when only a few copies of the paper had been run off. Mechanics were sent for to make hasty repairs, but an Inspection of the engine showed - that at least twenty-four hours would be required to put it In order. Abram Day drove up in his automobile Just at this time. Learning of the publisher's dilemma he ran his auto to the rear of the nrintltur office, connected the macnine witn tne press oy tne netting, and thus furnished power enough to run otr the edition. -In a brief editorial the nublisher a sured his readers that he believed he was supplying them with the first newspaper ever run oil oy an automooue.
