HJ tore the public. Thev have been
Hfl grossly maligned, as the whole world
mm will sec, when the cad of this casu is

mm Major Gyles of Aiken, who took an
HJ active- part, in tho preliminary inquirv.
fl said tonight:
Mm "Tho evidence in the case is purely
Hfl circumstantial and the decision will
Hflj rest wholly with the judgo and iury.

mm uproariously when this detail is inch-

H Beaches Seem Friendly.
Bfl rfi- Beach and her husband are hore
J together tonight iu the Hotel AVileox
Hfl surrounded by the bevy of faithful
Hfl friends who have supported them
HJ throughout the ordeal. And it is to be
Hfl borne in mind also that Mr. and Mrs.

ROYAL COUPLE
WELL GUARDED
George and Mar' of England
Fear Suffrage! c-s and an In
dian Assassin.
Special Cablo to The Tribune.
LONDON. Feb. 3. Admittedly fearing
a suffragette demonstration, but, ac
cording to semi-official roports. more
afraid of an Indian assassin, King George
and Queen .Mary motored from Windsor
to Buckingham palace today. The jour
ney was marked by the most elaborate
procautlons against attack ever provided
fen- a British ruler of modern times.
It has been rumored for Home weeks
past that the attempt to assassinate the
viceroy of India. Lord Hardlnge. was
only tho forerunner of a similar attack
on the king. Consequently their majes
ties, and tho Prince of Wales as well,
have been under constant surveillance of
detectives.
Preceding tho royal automobile today
was another machine filled with detect
ives who scrutinized every Inch of the
road to guard against ground glass,
which it had been rumored the suf
fragettes would scatter along the road
way. Another car carrying six Scotland
yard detectives followed their majesties.
The king and queen came from Wind
sor for the prft-Lenten court. The first
leveo for the men will lv held tomor
row and the llrat court will he hold Fri
day night. To guard against suffragette
antics, every woman guest will have to
be Identified.
FLOOD SUFFERERS
APPEAL FOR RELIEF
MEMPHIS, Tcnn.. Feb. 3. Except for
the unexpected collapse of 200 feet of the
southern end of the crevasse at Buelah,
Miss., widening the gap to about COO feet,
the flood situation along the Mississippi
river was not materially changed today.
The widening of the Buelah gap. how
over, will cause the Inundation of a much
greater area than at first anticipated.
Tho task of caring for refugees already
Is assuming larger proportions than lo
cal resources can master.
Residents of the overflowed section in
the vicinity of Benolt adopted resolu
tions at a mass meeting today describing
tho situation as appalling and appealing
to congress for relief.

J Gust Nash Faces Problem
That Is Driving Him to
Verge of Madness.
With bis wife bedridden, stifling the
groans that suffering would force from
Dor lips, with nothing In the house for
his six children to cat, and thrco monlhu
behind In his rent. Gust Nash, a laborer,
living In tho rutir of 51 South Fifth West
streut. Is facing a problem that he con
fesses is driving him to the vergo of
mildness.
Until ten days ao Nash was earning
?1.7n per day. Then his wife had a re
currence of symptoms of appendicitis,
for which disorder she underwent an op
eration three months ago. Nash had no
choice but to slay home and nurao hor,
for $1.75 a day could not go far toward
paying for the services of a trained nurse
after it had been drawn upon for the cost
of meals for eight Then the larder, un
rcplenlshed by tho purchaser ordinarily
made possible by the dally wage, became
exhausted of food for the little ones.
The mother was too HI to oat. Hollow
eyed from sleepless nights at the bed
side of his helpmate, Nash confessed last
night that ho had oxhuusled his resources
and Ingenuity In his efforts to play at
ono time the roles of father, mothor and
nurse.
"If my wife could only be taken care
of the rest would be easy," said Nash.
"I dare not neglect her, If I had tho hearc
to do so. for the children need her more
than they need mo or anything except
food. They arc crying for that now,
and I am helpless."
As ho spoke the stricken mothor took
from under hor pillow an apple, loft a
few minutes before, and handed It to
the baby that pleaded for bread and but
ter. Nash explained that tho condition
would ho helped some if his boy, 15 years
of age. could get employment.

The board of commissioners is giveu
power in tho bill to submit proposi

repeal of ordinances previously ap
proved by the people for tho amend
ment of such ordinances. No ordinance
proposed by petition can be repealed or

voters named in the bill as requisito to
a recall petition, is 25 per cent of the
number cast for mayor at the last prG
cediug election at which a mayor was

however. The author of the bill said
last night that, tho number would be
