AMAZING STORY OF SCANDALS AN
HIGH-LIFE LOVE IN MURDER CASE
Here Is the First Inside Story From Paris of the Now
World-Famous Murder of Gaston Calmette by
Madame Caillaux "First Lady" of
BY MARY BOYLE O'REILLY.
Paris, France, April 14. The inside
story of the Caillaux-Calmette mur
der case reveals the most amazing
private scandals, spreading well near
over the whole of French aristocratic
and political life. It is a story laden
with what Parisians call "love."
It mayeven touch the president's
palace whispered words even now
link the names of the ruler and his
beautiful wife with the "affair mys
terious." It was not alone to revenge herself
upon Gaston Calmette, editor of Fi
garo, that the fascinating Madame
Caillaux, wife of the former prpemier
of France, hurled four death-dealing
bullets into the body of the editor.
But Mme. Caillaux in her cell in St.
Lazare prison, the oldest and dirtiest
of Parisian penitentiaries, has already
decided upon revenge as her defense.
She will tell the tribunal which
hears her case that she was justified
in killing the editor because he pub
lished a portion of the "Ton Jo" let
ters, and she feared that others of
them would follow.
