which friends of the condemned man
have been urging him to prepare ever
since the Court of Appeals refused him

Meeker Is known to be spending his
long hours In the death house these
days writing an autobiography, which
goes Into the story of his boyhood; his
work as a lieutenant on the strong arm
squad and consequent relations with
criminals up to the time of the murder
of Rosenthal; such admissions as he
thinks It advisable to make regarding
his relations with those who admit com
plicity In tho murder and, finally, his
relations with Jack Hose.

WOMAN ASKSFOR
PLACE ON THE BENCH
Mrs. Baripfht Would Like to Sit
as Judfro of tho Chil
dren's Court.
LAWYER FOR 10 YEARS;
A woman ha asked Mayor Mltchel to
make her a. Judge In the Children's
Court. She Is Mrs. Clarice Margoles
... .i frnm s'tv
uarigm. w '""" ,a
York University In 1805 and ha a taw .
nffl at 170 Broadway. She sent her
application to ir. miwii.,
Among her recommendations was one
from County Judge Lewis L. Fawcett
ot Brooklyn.
Under the recently amended Inferior
courts law five Justices of Special Ses
sions must be designated by the Mayor
by July 1 to alt In the Children's Court.
No new appointments are Involved.
There la only one Special Sessions va
cancy, and that Is In Brooklyn. Mrs.
Baright Uvea In Manhattan, at Broad
way and 180th street
The Special Sessions Justices com
bined a few months ago in nsklng the
Board of Kstlmate nnd the Aldermen to
Increase the number of Justices by one.
Tho request has been approved by the
llstlmate Board, but the Aldermen prob
ably will take no action before July 1.
If this post should be created by July 1
the new Justice could be one of the live
to be assigned to the Children's Court
by the Mayor. There Is no other !os
slble way by which Mrs. Baright could
reach tho Children's Court bor.ch at
present. .
Mrs. Baright la 34 years old, and has
two daughters, 15 and 13 years old. She
has done social work on the Kast Hide
and has written magailne articles on re
forming bad boys. She studied law at
the suggestion of Julius M. Mayer, now
a Federal Judge. She thinks that as the
Mayor set a precedent by appointing
Miss Katharine B. Davis Commissioner
of Correction he ought to go a step
further and put a woman In the Juvenile
Court.
Hhe said last night that she had not
yet heard from the Mayor regarding her
aiiillcutlon.
"My Idea Is that a woman can help
boys now without olmnglng the laws and
the rules of Justice," Mrs. Baright said.
"The ideal aim of a Judge, In my opinion,
Is to give the defendant a ray of hope
' without Infringing the rule or law aim
I order otherwise atretcning tne siai-
UteS."
" . in.A.

and that boy may be saved from a possi
ble future abyss."

his salvation he will go to the chair
without releasing It.
Maarmslne Offers.
Mngoalncs and other publications have
come forward with attractive offers for
his written thoughts on the Rosenthal
murder and matters akin to the shoot
ing. He needs money badly, but he
has refused nil offers so tar to wrlto
for pay.
Mr. Manton said, In reply to a ques
tion yesterday, that he didn't know
whether Mrs. Becker personally would
take part In a final plen to Oov, Whit
man. Ills belief, however. Is that (the
will. Tho last plea will bo made the
latter part of this week, and Mr. Man
ton thinks that Oov. Whitman will core
sent to an examination of the case by
Lieut .-Gov. Schoeneck. The lawyer
would not tuy whether or not Becker I
h.H placed as yet any material In hit I
hands to be used In the plea.
It goes without saying that the state
ment which Becker now Is working on
Is not a "confession," no far, at least, as
an acknowledgment of complicity In or .
a guilty foreknowledge of tho murder I
Is concerned. Also, so say those close to I
Becker, even If his version of gambling
affairs In which ho was Involved Is
published, those who nre looking for
prominent mimes In the recital will be J
disappointed. Assertions made since
Beckers troubles began that he was
morn or less a free lance In his grafting
operations In the Tenderloin, that he
was not splitting his graftings with men
in high position, are borne out, say his
friends, in tho statement he Is preparing,
although it is admitted that he Is In a
position to make trouble for smaller
fry.
War Becker Didn't Testlfs-.
tn his statement now being written
Becker explains why he didn't take the
stand In his own defence at either of
his trials, tt Is said. The reason he
offers Is thit he feared that District At
torney Whitman In croiM-examinatlon
would dig Into the very matters which
Involve persons the mention of whose
names may cause Recker not to make
public his brief autobiography at all.
The statement Is said also to take up
In detail the rich graft which the pas
sage of the Sullivan law opened up to
corrupt policemen.
Becker Is said also to be going with
much detail Into arguments that prove
from his viewpoint thiU Jack Rose and
Brldgle Wbber had more urgent rea
son:) for bringing about the death of
Rosenthal than Becker had. It Is said
also that what he is now writing may
bring into the Rosenthal case revelations
concerning a certain witness at the
Becker trials who never was Indicted
for the murder but who. Becker says,
offered the strongest kind of testimony
against Becker and thereby procured
Immunity for himself.
"If was 'Mrs. Becker's Intention to go
to Sing Sing yesterday to Join In tho
conference which Mr. Manton and Jack
son Becker had with the prisoner but
she did not go. Hho will see her hus
band, however. In the death houso to
day.

of the Central Federated Union.
William J. Bryan preached at Car.
neglo Hall last night ngnlnst prepared
ness for war. His other topic was
peace at any reasonable price.
Ho was the guest of the Centrnl
Labor Union bodies, whoso memberti
preceded him In short talks, hut there
was a distinct pro-German tlavor about
tto meeting. Any references to men or
measures favoring tho Herman cause
were tempestuously applauded. Any ref
orences to men or measures unsym
pathetic to the Teutonic allies were
noisily hissed.
Mr. Bryan's nppearance here, as the
principal speaker at what was termed
a labor mass meeting, was his first
since his resignation us Secretary ot
State, and the announcement of his
purpose to work for a contalllzatlon ot
peace sentiment to be usvd us an Influ
ence upon President Wilson. Ills audi
ence last night was reasonably large,
but not large, enough to fill the great au
ditorium and galleries of Carngio Hall.
There weie many empty seats.

Mr. Bryan came out squarely for llnv

the Swedish flag, rammed tho submarine I
after It had ordered her to stop. Th

The Berlin newspapers, commenting
on this episode, say It Is a proof of
the British abuse of neutral flogs and I
that the Illegal course followed by ships j
of cummercu rompvls submarine coin-
manders to think llrst ot tneir own

of the Admiralty. It Is believed that no
reply will bo mado to the United Slates
for two weeks, until every point raised
by President Wilson has been examined,
especially In view of the hws of the U-I9.
The l'-21 was commanded by Otto
Weddlgen, who sunk the Abouklr, Cressv

his life when the T-29 went down. It

newspaper adds ;
"The Incident further shows plainly
what meaning America's demand has
that submarines should not torpedo
even enemy merchantmen without first
halting and searching them. It would
be u complete surrender of the nd

IO.vdon, June 6. There no longer re
mains nny doubt that Karl Kitchener,
Secretary for War, nnd Held Marshal
Sir John French, commander of the
British forces on the Continent, are at
daggvps drawn. Very little has been
publicly said on this situation a very
embarrassing one to the Government
nnd to the country's cause and the
newspapers have done little, more than
hint at tho disagreement.
It Is generally felt that Mr. AfxjuIth'B
recent visit to the front was mado with
a view to smoothing over questions of
diffoncp between Sir John French and
the Secretary for War What was ac
complished by that visit Is not knoin.
but no one supposes that lord Kitchener
and the British commander nre working
in treatcr harmony because of It.
To-day Iird Kitchener Is tis popular
as ever. This Is true despite the bitter
attack directed oialnst him by Uird
on the other hand, has suffered a decided
fall In public favor, In spite of the fact
that the subject of his complaints ap-

i Known to-uay tnai suine iu me i iesi-
dent's advisers have urged the appoint
ment nf Secretary of the Interior Umo
,s Secretary of Slate. One of the points
brought forward In Mr. Line's favor Is
that muiiy gf Ills suggestions were, em
bodied in the nolo iccently sent to Ger
many and that he was one of the most
Intluentlnl advisers of the President In
the German crisis.
Some Democrats hne not failed to
point out, however, that the Secretary
nf the Interior Is n Canadian by birth,
holding that this should weigh against
hl selection for the portfolio of State
In such a trying International situation

serious effort has been made to per
suade the President to appoint Mr. Ixne
has not seriously Itnpilred tho confi
dence of the f i lends of Secretary Lan
sing that he will be retained perma
