Excerpt from The Scarlet Empire

Officer Michael Rafferty of the Broadway squad, who was having his day Off and who happened to be on the pier at the time, made a gallant and desperate effort to rescue the youth. It is regarded as remarkable that after he sank into the water his head did not reappear at the surface, and it is the theory of Offi cer Rafferty that the body must have been caught by a strong undercurrent. Inquiry at Precinct Sta tion no. 7 later disclosed that John Walker Of 407 East 38th Street is missing and there is evidence to show it was he who so successfully sought a watery grave. Walker was said by his landlady to be a rather quiet individual but with strong views as to the evils of the trusts and the hardships thrust upon the poor of this day by the money kings. It is supposed that he tired of life's struggle and sought release in death from the sufferings entailed by poverty. He had no known relatives.
