While thu consumption of copper is

James Curtis Butler Andrews
Fools Summer Colon)' at

j Church Dignitaries.
l! Jntrrnatinn:il Nfws Service.
TV KW VfJK'K. Nov. L'i". It has just
been learned that he clf-ilylcd
Herian nobleman, I'rincc Stefan
Xcniaiijii'li-tJushanjich. who dur
ing I ho la.it two seasons has been the'
leader of the fashionable summer col
ony ul A tnagansel t, h. I., and who re
cently has been delivering lectures on
the Hn Means, is really James Curtis But
ler Andrews, who about, thirty years
ago created a sensation by eloping with
the beautiful Irene l'"'argo of Chicago
and who later added to the sensation
bv his spectacular doings in thi- city.
As I'rincc Stefan, Andrews held com
plete sway nt Amagansett and associ
ated with such men as the Ttcv. Lyman
Abbott and the Hcv. Dr. Howard Dul'
field. lie induced the IMghf Mew
Raphael, bishop of JJioohlyn, and other
rucso-GrceIc church dignitaries of note
to hold a pontifical mass for his dead
royal anccstors-and e embarked in an
international enterprise in which he
hoped to win fame aud fortune. Xot
until his haudsoiijc. cottage, had been
'fiold. uiinWfeiosuYc and he had van
ished from AniaganicU, leaving certain
tradesmen deeply mourning for him,
was there a breath of suspicion that he
was not all he had represented himself
to be.
Overreached Himself.
He would unquestionably have con
tinued hU princely career uninterrupt
ed had he not, in a moment of zeal, an
nounced himself as n. Balkau authority.
This attracted the attention of Michael
. Pupiu, professor of electro mechanics
at Columbia university and honorary
consul general of Scrvi'a, who saw
through the royal disguise at a glance.
It was a chance remark by Professor
Pupiu which led to the investigation
and discovery of thc identitv of tho
pseudo prince.
Andrews, a member of an old Xew
York family of distinction, was known
as a prodigy while a student in Wil
liams college. Shortlv after gradua
tion he met Ir.one Fargo, daughter of
the wcalthv Charles I'nrgo of Chicago,
and soon afterward eloped with her.
Bringing his bride to New York, An
drews established a home In Seventeenth
street and promptly achieved notoriety
by shooting a man who looked In tho
window one day. A young woman guest
at the table complained that the man was
ogling her and Andrews sent a bullet Into
him, slightly wounding him. He waa not
prosecuted.
Fortune Dissipated.
The ln:ge fortune lel'l by the father
went swiftly, and It was not many
nionlh.t before Andrews was drawing
upon an Indulgent mother and alster for
huge aiim?. These followed his own cash,
and Jt wus not long before Mrs. Andrews
sued for and obtained -ni divorce. Thc
one child born to them, Muriel, Is living
with the JpargOM In Chicago.
.Single blessedness did not appeal
strongly to Andrews, and he soon married
an attractive stenographer In his employ.
Then he started out lo recoup hla for
tune. He hud been told by his inolhor
he must choose noiwceii tne stenographer
and his family, and he chose thc young
woman. .Since Hint day his life bus been
filled with visionary schemes, the Im
personating of royalty being the latest.
Having aeoi'SR to good chiba, lie .sub
mitted scheme after scheme, to wealthy
friends and former ciassmatus with vary
ing degrees of success. He first appeared
nt Amagiuiselt lu lOOK. Under the name
of James Andrews he hired u cottage and
begun a life that was unlet. Ills house

1ND.1AXAPOLIS, .Nov. 25. The con
tention of the defense that the Me

"Before being turned over by thc

talked of blowing up the locks of thc
Panama canal and how .lames B. Me
Xainara was to return to Los Angeles
and "wipe that city off the map'-'by
a scries of explosions, and how the'
werc prevented J'rom carrying out these

Kern Takes Witness.
Senator Kern for the defense cross
examined MeManigal.
""Was the pay you received from the
MeXamnras your motive in causing so
many explosions? " asked Senator
Kern.
"No; it was not. money. Herbert S.
nockin, when he first started nic into
the dynamiting business, terrorized me,
saying if T did not do it ho "would
prevent mc from getting work. Then I
was prompted by a foolish notion that
it was for tho good of the Iron Work
ers'" union. My mind was influenced
with the idea that it would build up
tho union'
MeManigal admitted he had been -arrested
three times, twice for larceny
and once -for disorderly conduct.
"After tho Los Angeles Timos build
ing was blown up, when you and James
13. were hunting in the woods in Wis
consin, you say he admitted to you
that he deliberately killed twenty-one
persons, that ho was a printer and that
he knew he would hill some one when
he put tho bomb in the Times build
ing, and yet you continued to associ
ate with him?"
Mos, I did."'
Money a Factor.
MeManigal had said that when .). J.
MeXamara, secretary of tho union,'
planned "wholesale explosions," in
cluding the blowing tip of Los Angeles
city, he was afraid the "exceutiro
board would .cut off his allowance."
"Now. you say McNaniara, in order
to get money, proposed to steal I fiO.
000 by killing the treasurer of tho auto
mobile races at the speedway in In
dianapolis, and yet you still kept com
pany with lhc.se men who planned thc
murder? ' '
" Vos, J did."
MeManigal told in detail iiow much
ho was paid for each "job."
"AVhen you cuu&ed the explosion in
;ho Llewellyn iron plant in Los An
geles on JDcconiber 2o, 10.10, how much
did you charge for it?"
"1 got $525. which included iny ex
penses." '
Other witnesses interrupted Me

Woman on Stand.
Mrs. fciulic Maguiro testified she wis
a neighbor in Chicago of thc Mc

LEIPS TO HER DEATH
FROM 016 BUILDING
Miss Maude Van Deusen, Ne
braska School Teacher,
Ends Life in Chicago.
FEARS WHITE SLAVERS
Leaves Sia lenient Saying She
Had Little Money, and Pre
i ferred Death to Dishonor.
i
i .
CIIIGAUO, Xov. 25. Pos.se.s3ed with
the idea that she was pursued for dis
honorable purposes, Miss Maude Van
Deusen, 2o years old, leaped from thc
twentieth story of the Mcf'ormick
building and was crushed to "death on
the stone paving of an alley at the
street level. She jumped from an al
ley fire escape nearly 2;"0 feet above
the ground in viow of many pedestrians.
Jlcr body struck another fire escape
at thc first floor and bounded into the
alleyway, nearly every bone being
broken.
Miss Van" Douscn, according to pa
pers found in her poekctbook. which
she carried with her. was a school
teacher in Humboldt; Xcb. From her
papers it appeared that she had been
seeking a position hero and had boon
obessed with the idea, that she had been
in danger from white slaver?. She
wrote that she had been driven to ap
peal for protection to t'hief of Police
McWcency, to the federal department
of justice and to social settlement
workers.
"Death Before Dishonor."
She had prepared for her death by
pinning across her bosom a strip of
white linen which had been stained
crimson at either end and on vhich
she had printed in large letters:
' " Death 1 Death before dishonor."
She had. tied around her neek a copy
of the New Testament in which she
had marked passages in St. John. She
hold her handbag in her hand as she
jumped and it was picked up near her
body, in it was another marked Bible
and n typewritten statement of sev
eral thousand words which she had eu
t.itled: "Part of My 1iVs History."
"T will die clean if T have to hill
myself." was 'written nt the head of
one of the sheets.
The landlady of the house in which
Miss Van Deusen had been rooming
said the young woman had bean with
out employment for some time.
Leaves Statement.
"T am trying to writo I his without
thc least, emotion," her typewritten
statement began, "and, though tho fol
lowing statements may seem dramatic,
your reasou will assure you that they
contain only common sense.
" First. 1 have very little money and
am hoc allowed to hold a. position.
"Second, I will accept no money but
that I earn.
, "To be without money is to be ex
posed to anj- amount of insult and to
fall into thc hands of the spiritualist
white slave trade.
"If T do not get help it will be a
certainty that I cannot escape falling
into thc hands of the spiritualist white
slave trade, and that will force mc to
iclf-dcatruction."
Tho police do not understand what
Miss Van Douson meant by "spiritual
ist white shnc trade.' '
Letter to Jane AcJdams.
1 A copy of a letter in her hand bag
addressed to Miss .lane Addanm read:
"I wonder if tins note will ever
reach you at all. Good people nowa
days are protected by ' secretaries'" so
that il in hard to get lo them. Jf you

ber of harlots with respectability and
refuse to help a girl who has to be
right 1 shall not even thank you for
helping me. lint 1 shall love you if you
are good really or intend to bo as you
determine.' j
A letter apparently written by Miss

too busy to see Miss Van Deusen at

I The genial warmth put them in ,
JL t'ne right mood to lake an uu
common interest in the proceed
injrr. of the big- convention of tho Utah
Educational association, which is no v.- in
full swing.
T3y long odds yesterday's sessions ex- 1
cceded thouc of any previous convention
of thc state's tcachcru In point of at
tendance; in point of interest, the pro- ,
rrrainines werc of surpassing merit. The
close attention with which tho various
speakers were followed may bo illea-
Ira ted by the case of Dr. Claxton's ad-
drcFrf at thc after non session. Not one
of thc 5000 persons who occupied scats
in the tabernacle left the place; there j
was an entire abscnou of whimpering; at
any moment the Justly celebrated pin
which has contributed to make the t&,',
ern.iclc's fame might have been heard
to hit thc floor had anyone dropped it.
Gratifying Attitude.
This condition was in distinct contrast
to that which haa prevailed at former
meetings of the association, when, not
Infrequently, a. speaker was obliged to IH
suspend until confusion incident to mue.i
moving- about and undertone comments
abated.
Progress was made in tho convention's
work at yesterday's scsslonu. Dr. P. P
Clnxton, United States commissioner or
education, delivered two masterly ad
dresses'. The welcoming apecchea were
cordial greetings. President "Mlllu re
viewed the results of tho association's
activities during thc past year, cnndl
dates for offices were placed In nornina
lion and thc day's work concluded witii IH
a demonstration of physical culture by
.Salt t.tkc school pupils that broug.it IH
rorlh enthusiastic praise.
A hit of a surprise was sprung .it thc
forenoon session when nominations for
the presidency were made. It had boon
pretty well understood that G. N. Child. k
supervisor of grammar grades in thc Ss't '
Lake schools, was to have no oppositlo i
fo;- the office. When the numo of Di.
John A. Wldtsoc of thc Agricultural col- i
lege was presented, therefore, it cam
unexpectedly. Afterwards Dr. Wldtsoo
,?ald t hat he was ln no sense a cand;
date and that, had he been present, -h '
would not have permitted his name to
tie placed before the convention. t
Will Cast Votes Today. H
Tho balloting for officers will be con
ducted today. Thc hours of polling wl'I IJ
he from 0 to 5 o'clock. Thc announce-
ment of the result will be made at to
night's meeting In thc tabernacle-
Much lime will bo devoted today to
departmental meetings, In order that
the various hranchos may Tvork wlt'i
large attendance, there will be no general
session this afternoon. There will b jJ
a general session this morning and an
other this evening. Thc principal speak
cv at eiich of these nicetlngn "will bo
J. 71. Francis, superintendent of tho nub
He -schools at Ios Angeles. There wi't yA
also be other addresses and musical 1
numbers.
Commissioner Claxton, with yesterday
aflcrnoous lecture, completed a thre.a- ' 1
day stay In Utah. On Sunday Dr. Clox- ( ;
ton delivered two addresses. Testorday
his forenoon talk was to thc teachers a? 1
c:afti-meu and his afternoon address was
on intcruatioual pence. Thc afternoon
.session, ln fact, was n muctinfr of th
Utah branch of the International School JM
Peace league. Dr. Claxton predicted ,
thai the dlsnrmumcnt of thc nations
would soon come to par.s and that the
billions of dollars w'nleh now nro o.t-
pended for equipping iho armies and '
navies of the world would be devoted to J"
tho production of wealth of various kinds.
Dr. Claxton's remarks were rccoived with '
earnest munffcstatlouu of approval, and
at the close of his address the conven- t
lion tendered him a vole of thanks. i
Attendance Large.
The morning ucssion wue hold In the

soon shown, was entirely inadequate In '
p.ze to accommodate thc attendance, and
