WAKHTN'OTON, April l.l.-A man who
gave his name a Michael Winter was
arrested at the White House U-day
after he had twice succeeded In forc
ing hi way Into the private part of the
Executive Mansion. When searched an
ugly-looking claip-knlpe was Sound In
hi pocket. It 1 the first time 'In year
thai an unwelcome visitor ha suc
ceeded in gaining entrance to the Presi
dent' home. .
The man claimed to be a German
subject and said ne had applied un
successfully to Count Von Bernstorff,
th German Ambassador, for a letter of
Introduction to Taft. When he reached
th White Houae he rsn swiftly up the
step, dashed past the doorkeeper and
for S moment was lost In th darkness
of the hall from the frantically search
A few minute after being ejected
the man repeated the performance and
was taken Into custody.
Winter gave hi. residence as Balti
more. To officers tie protested that he
Intended no harm to Taft.
Winter said he was thirty-six years
old and unmarried. He Is a tall, mus
cular man, apparently a laborer, though
ha said he had no occupation. He was
poorly dressed. The clasp-knife had a
long blade with a patent guard to pre
vent the blade folding back on the tiand
in case It were used a s weapon.
Sergt. Williams, In charge of th police
at the White House, took the man Into
custody without any trouble, though It
required the persuasive effort of half a
dozen of flu guards to get him to leave
the White House. He finally consented
to leave the ground with the officer,
when told that they would take him to
the German Embassy. He was put Into
a patrol wagon at the rear of the Wthlte
House ground without further protesta
tions. Except for the ushSfl at the main
portico and the policemen whom they
summoned, no one at L.ie White House
was aware of the stranger's Intrusion.
He was quiet and apparently collect
ed and talked coherently to officials
about his desire to see the President
and how he had twice unsuccessfully
attempted to get the Herman Ambas
sador to give lilin a letter of Introduc
tion. He absolutely refused to aay what
he wanted to talk to the President
Hergt. Williams reported his belief
that the man was deranged. He was
taken to the Mrst Precinct atatlon and
Inter removed to the Washington
asylum for observation. lilt.- House
..fllclals were very ralUotBnt to give de.
tails concerning the matter because It
has been their experience that publica
tion of such attempts by eninks usually
inspires othera of the same calibre to
like actions. Winter was classed at
the asylum as "harmless.
At the German Embassy, attache, said
that no man answering Winters', des
cription Or giving that name hid been
there so far as It was known.

DISCOVERS WIFE HE

PARTED BY COURT
To Protect Their Children,
Sobbing Young Couple
Agree to Divorce.
CINCINNATI, April 13.-A tragedy
was broiihtit into court here yesterday
when John P. Iluch Jr.. twenty two, was
legally divorced by the woman who.
Ignorant of the fact she was hi half
sister, had married him. The couple
stood before Jud:,o Warner in the In
solvency Court and sobbed as they
heard the words which separated them
and gave the custody of their two
children to the mother
When tho couple were married In
October. 191U, neither had the slightest
suspicion of tho relationship. Their
futlier snd mother had carefully kepi the
knowledge of their parentage from them.
Perhaps there was not a more de
voted couple In the city. They lived
under the same roof that had sheltered
thorn from childhood. Young Iluch
n. -de a fall salary jh a moving picture
machine operator, and Ml habits were
exemplary. There ca:nu dissension In
the home. It Is understood, between the
mother and the young ouple. Then the
blood relationship was disclosed.
Iluch and his llStsrWtfl broke down
as their mother proved their relation
ship by documentary evidence.
To protect their children they decided
It would be necessary to follow the ad
vice of the Judge and soparate, und
they signified their willingness to do so.
Before the daed couple were brought
before Judge WatnOf the Court wus
cleared alike of attorneys and Idlers.
"I have arranged that, for the sake
of your two children, Mrs. Ituch be
charged with nogleol and action for
divorce brought on that ground by Mr.
Iluch,'' sa'd Judge Warner pityingly.
! "It seems to me that divorce Is the
I only way out of the situation."
Young Rueh'a head sank forward and
the girl btaii to weep hysterically.
"Yes, I am satisfied," said the hus
band. "I auppoae so," sobbed ths girl, "hut
we love our children. I hey must be pro

So, without further formality, husband
arid wife became onoa more sister and 1

After forty-eight hours the police force and scores of amateur seards
