London, Sept. 26. George Bernard
Shaw made an address to-night at a
meeting which was held to demand the
release of Mark Wllks. tho schoolmas
ter who Is In Jail because he cannot pay
his wlfe'a Income tax. Mr. Wllks paid
his own tax, but could not afford to pay
that of his wife, for which he Is liable
under the English law. Mrs. Wllks, who
Is a suffragette, refuses to pay taxation
Mr. Shaw Indulged In much cynical
humor over this new situation. He said
he could bear the delay In enfranchising
women bo long as they only sacrificed
themselves to the cause, hut now that
they have got to sacrificing the men no
male was safe. He added:
"The women have got beyond the
present laws and are Pea ting the Gov
ernment every time. The Government
sentences them to prison for n month
and releases them In a week. Benching
supreme heights, they sentenced one
woman to five years and released her In

demned theatre hurnlng. He sold he
presumed that Miss Leigh, who has
been released from prison, where she
was confined for setting Are to tho
Theatre Itoyal at Dublin, after an In
terval of refreshment would set firo to
another theatre. At this the audience
burst Into wild cheering, thus showing
nn unmistakable approval of Incendiar
ism. Mr. Shaw apparently did not expect
such a display of bloodthlrstlness, hut
refrained from administering any re
buke, saying: "You may think that
great fun, but I get my living by the
theatre and she might set fire to a
theatre where one of my plays Is run

There was no report. Debs hod emptied

The wife told him that she had mado
up her mind to take some definite 6tep
toward ending their constant bicker
ings. She said she had gone to the Do
mestic Relations Court in the morning
and had there got a summons for her
husband, returnable in the afternoon.
Deba, a stock' man with a quick temper,
kicked back Jiis choir and refused to
even look at the summons. There was
a long wrangle. Debs said he would
not accept service,
The argument continued for two hours,
and then at 4 o'clock Debs consented to
go with his wife and little Samuel around
to the Went One Hundredth street police
station to see what could bo done.
Mrs. Debs asked thecaptaln for n police
man. She said that her husband refused
to accept service of the summons. "All
you have to do Is to touch him with it,"
said the captain. The wife leaned over
and flicked her husband's sleeve with tho

Joseph I. Batho of tho West inoth street
station while his wife went on to stand
on the stoop of her home talking to neigh

with some friends.
Debs, according to R. P, Banta, an em
ployee of a taxioah oompany, came along
and took up a position opposite his homo
In front of Publlo School 179.
Suddenly he walked straight acrors the
street toward his wife, who stood with her
book to him. Ho was tugging at a re
volver in his hip pocket. At the sight
of the weapon a woman eorcamed nnd
Mrs. Debs wheeled about. As she did
so her husband fired point blank nt her.
The bullet struck her undor the chin
on the right side of her neck. It did not

threw herself against the door. It would
not open. She then ran down the stoop,
brushing past her husband.

direction of Columbus avenue when tho
policeman fired again. In front of J84
West mist street stood twelve-year-old
Margaret (,'olllns of that address, with her
friend, fourteen-year-old May Hawks

Mrs. Dobs reeled toward tho children
ns Debs llred four times, tho first bullet
striking tho Collins girl In tho right thigh,
the second also hitting her friend in the
thigh. Tho other two made no mark.
Dobs then tried to shoot himself and
rushed into tho house.
Policeman Bathe, sprinting nround the
corner with Dotoetivo Collins at his hoolH,
ran after Debs. They found him dying

A Word From Him nt Saratoga

HE REFUSES TO BOSS
Senator Rrackett Has a
Boom With Few Votes

No Nominntion Hppnnse of Long
Sessions of IMntform
SArtATOciA, X. V., Sept. :n.-Senator
Hoot from tho day of his arrival hero
has heard reports to the effect that nt the
last moment he would open his Ivig nnd
disclose the real candidate of this con
vention. The saying has been, "If wo only
knew what Is far Imck in tho mind of Root
we could arrive nt some deflnlto under
standing of this situation.
Senator Root was nsked for an explana
tion on these comments nnd at midnight
"Not for anything In this world would
I attempt to interfero in tho rivalry be
tween Wadsworth and Hedges. They are
two notably flno young men nnd the
worthiest kind of worthy Republicans.
They have made their fight for this nom
ination and not for anything, I repeat,
would I lift a finger to prevent either
from getting tho nominntion. Their
spoars have been flung Into tho ring.
They must fight it out if neither oan
win It will then be time to discuss other
candidates. But in my judgment it will
be either Wadsworth or Hedges, or
Hedges or Wadsworth, just as you chose
to put it. Up to this time I can see no
other man in this fight."
Chairman Barnes's friends were bet
ting to-night that while Hedges would
lend on the first ballots Wadsworth would
overtake him and be nominated.
There is a new boom in town to-nlghi
It is for Senator Edgar T. Rrackett or
Saratoga Springs. The Senator ns per
manent chairman of the convention to
day made what the delegates believe to
he a cracking good speech. They de
clared It to be full of meat and that as
a campaign document If will bo effective.
The basis of the Senator's boom was this
All the afternoon Senator Rrackett has
been rxwought hy nx-Gov. Benjamin B.
Odell. Jr. and Louis P. Payn and others
to allow his name to go lefore the con
vrntion. At first Mr. Rrackett demurred,
but finally consented. Mr. Pnyn left Mr.
Brackett, saying: "He Is an ornery cuss,
but he is a good fighter and ho will ba
Immediately the Rensselaer county
delegation declared for Brackett. But
there the boom stopped. Xo other county
took Brackett up. Tho delegates for
Hedges, Wadsworth and Bonnet frowned
on the Brackett boom and declared that
the Saratoga Senator could not be put
over this convention except by the abso
lute command of Senator Root. The
Senator, who is the personal representa
tive hero of President Tnft, remarked
ttiat he was not In tho commanding busi
ness on this occasion.
Senator Brockett's friends are relying
for success on the weary delegates. They
have leon kept here a day longer than
they should have lieen, they say. It is
all right enough, they add, to have an
open convention in an effort to impress
the voters of the State thnt there is no
bossism here. But thoy feel that the
committee on platform could have com
pleted Its labors this morning so that
nominations could hnve tenn made to
day. Many of them aro suspicious that
they have heen held hero for material
purposes, Saratoga Springs having had a
Kven such a suspicion has irritated
delegates, nnd in tho socond session of
the convention this afternoon, when tho
committee on platform was not ready
to report and a motion was put to take
a recess until 8 o'clock to-night, there
was a majority in opposition. Never
theless Permanent Chairman Brackott
deolared the motion carried. William M.
Ivins nnd other members of the committee
on platform explained that tho com
mittee's work was very greatly delayed
by the open sessions yesterday. At those
sessions all sorts of planks and sugges
tions wore reoelvod which had to be
threshed out by tho sub-committee on
platform. Others attributed the adjourn
ment this afternoon to this evening to
uncertainties na t o whot her t ho convention
oould delegate ita authority to a com
mittee to nominate an Associate Judge
of the Court of Appeals.
The convention here wants to name
Supreme Court Justice Frank Hlsoook
of Syracuse as one of the candidates for
tho two vacancies on that bench, the
Democratic State convention nt Syraouse
also to nominato Justice Hiscock and at
the samo time to nominate a Democrat
to be his colleague Tho Republican con
vention could then through a committee
appointed hore All in tho name of the
Democrat nominated at Syracuse and
thus complete its Judiciary tioket. It
has been deolared by experienced lawyers
that under tho present election law a
State o-nventlon cannot tlelogoto its
powers to a committee.
It was also stated that Attorney-General
Carmody had rendered ft decision to the
effect that a State convention could not
delegate Its powors to a committee. The
Attornoy-Genoral tolophoned to-night
that he has ronderod no such decision.
With these various explanations for the
delays In the work of this convention the

Judge Rookwood, Senator Brackett 's
persona! friendjhas been the active man
in boosting it along. He Ks visited
