Thlx notion grows out of the assault
made upon Mrs. Beach on the night of
February 2U, when she was foiled with a
fence paling and her throat slashed in
the yard of hor winter home.
It was said by the Beaches that Mrs.
Beach had lieen called out to the gate by
a negro man who said he had a note for
her; that she went to get It and that tho
negro then slashed her throat and escaped
in the darkness.
A warrant charging the crime to Mrs.

more than a week by those who havo been

against him. Upon microscopic exam
ination made by experts, first in Alkon
then in Augusta and lastly In Columbia,
human blood was found on the larger
blade. This is one of the prosecution's
main points. It is also said that a con
versation between Mr. and Mrs. Beach,
overheard by a detective hid liehind a
book ease for tho purpose, will 1k relied
upon to som extent

his wife for New York, giving it out before
their departure that they intended to

this nfternoon, however, after Solicitor

and two maids employed at the Lyons

of these are held ns witnesses. They gave
bond for their appearance at tho Juno
term of tho Court of General Sessions,
which convenes here on Juno 3.
It was through Mr. Dolan's valet
Charlie Woodbridge, whose wife is Mrs.
Beach's maid, that it was learned this
afternoon that the Beaches hail sailisl
for Diropp. Woodbridge said after his
arrest that he had received a wire from his
wife last Tuesday night to the effect that
she would sail tho next morning with Mr.
and Mrs. Beach for Kurope.
The news that a warrant had lieen issued
charging Mr. Beacli with the crime that

warrant as an outrage.

WARWICK CASTLE LEASED?
One Result of Countess's Visit In America,
It Is Said.
Marconi HVrWru Drunlrli In Tim Si .v.
l,o.Nto.v, April H. via (llaco Hay. Tho
Pall Mall Oatcllr to-day states that one
outcome of tho Countess of Warwick's
recent visit to tho United States Is the
report that Warwick Castle will be let
on a long loaso to a wealthy American.
The newspaper gives no hint as to tho
Identity of tho American.
Warwick Castle stands high above tho
IUver Avon a little tinder Km miles to the
northwest of London, Kxtensivo lawns
and gardens are enclosed within the walls.
The walls aro flanked by towers dating
back to tho fourteenth century. Tho
highest of the towers is 117 feet in height.
Tho view from the castlo along tho Avon,
with its wooded banks, is regarded as one
of the most attractive In F.ugland. Tho
castle was the sceno of a fire in JS71, but
the great hall nnd tho other apartments
which suffered were restored.
Warwick Castlo Is at present the resi
dence of the Karl and Countess of War
wick. The Countess has become widely
known for her socialistic views. She
even has mado speeches from a cart In
favor of labor candidates at elections.
For many years the castle was involved
in the wars of early F.nglatul. It was
strengthened after the Norman invasion
and much of the castlo ns it stands at
present bears n date more recent than the
buttle or Hastings. Tradition, however,
dutes tho first castle at Warwick back to
the time of Kthelfnsla, daughter of King
Alfred. Henry III. mado the castlo his
headquarters in the wars against tlio
barons, and F.dward IV. Was imprisoned ,

TO SIDETRACK ROOSEVELT
Former Speaker Wadsuorth Will Be
Made Permanent Chairman "
Roches t'Kn, April 8.-Senator Root
arrived here from New York to-night to
attend tho Republican State convention
after stopping over at Utlca for a con
ference with Vice-President jiiherman.
1 nat visit may result in significant action
in the convention to bo held here to
Tho fact is that the Vice-President
handed to Senator Root an authorized
letter, in which he emphatically urged
that the four delegates at large be In
structed for President Taft. This letter
disposes of the re(ort that the doubt a
to whether the delegates at large should
be Instructed for the President was little s
Bhort of a "holdup by the State organiza
tion to bring about the renomination of
A ice-President Sherman at Chicago. It
turns out. furthermore, that President
Taft, after frequent consultations with
the Vice-President, desires a renomina
tion for him also at Chicago.
Nor was that the only letter Senator
Root had in his inside pocket. The othsr
one was signed by President Taft. ad
dressed to Senator Root. It says the Pres
ident expressly urges tbe organization
to Instruct the four delegates at large and
their alternates for his renomination.
Should there be any pronounced oppo
sition Senator Root will submit to his
WWfllHll W LHWVHIfTeltef of President
raft, but the letter from the Vice-President
ns well, and those two letters. It is
believed, will dispel the clouds of oppo
sition. So this convention may instruct
tho delegates at large not only for the
renomination of President Taft, but also
for the renomination of Vice-President
BARNES OPPOSES INSTRtlCTtNO.
That Chairman Rirnes and his friends

During the evening William A. Smyth
head of the Tioga county delegation,
notified Mr. Barnes that the delegates
for his county would declare for in

O'Brien of Clinton mude the same an
nouncement concerning the delegates
for that county.
The representatix-es of Cavuga, Ch?

the other smaller counties made the
same announcements to Chairman Barnes.
Those particularly aotlve in missionary
work among all tho counties for instruc
tions for Taft were ex-Representative

Ho and his friends are convinoed that
Chairman Barnes will bo defeated In
his effort to prex-ent instructions for

Chairman Barnes and his friends,
on the other hand, insist that only about
15(1 delegates are straight out in their
advocacy of instructions, that ISO are
on the fenco and that the remaining
715 are open to oonviction.
Mr. Ward announced that he was
still strong for the nomination of Col.
Roosevelt and he believed that many
delegates felt as ho did but at this time
did not euro to declare themselves.
Chairman Rarnes and his friends late
at night developed considerable bitterness
over tho situation. They declared they
had had a perfect understanding with
President Taft's friends that tho Presl
dent should receive a hearty indorsement
hut that it was inadvisable to Instruct th
delegates at large for Tuft. It xvos added
