VERACITY OF TALE
ASTOLD BY SAILOR
In iil Nichols Repeats
of How He Murder
ed Dr. Helene Knabe.
PORTSMOUTH. N. H., April 2. Sit
ting on tlie Iron bench In his celt at
the Portsmouth police station today,
Beth Nichols, formerly a sailor on the
V. S. 8. Dixie, coolly told the details
of how ho and. a man named Knight,
who paid him $l,GO0 to commit the de6d,
forced an entrance Into the Indianapolis
apartment of Dr. Helene Knabe, emi
nent physician and scientist, and almost
severed tho woman's h6ad with a stag-
handled butcher knife.
"We easily forced an entrance Into
the apartment through the living room
window," said Nichols. "I had brought
with mo a stag-handled carving knife.
Its blado was about ten Inches long. I
had nerved myself to tho deed wltn
"Wo tiptoed Into tho woman's bed
room. Knight pushing mo ahead of him.
Just as we reached her bedside eho
stirred, moaned slightly, and opened her
eyes. My God! I will nevor forget those
For tho first time since Nichols, at
midnight last night called a Jailer to
him, whero ho Is held to await trial
on a charge of carrying concealed
weapons with which ho threatened the
life of a local bartender, the man shudj
flered. Quickly recovering Ills com
posure, he went on:
"If sho hadn't awakened I think I
would have reneged, but, as she turned
toward me. I lunged. And that's all."
With the exception of when ho spoke
of the woman's frightened eyes staring
at the two men who had Invaded her
bedroom, Nichols was absolutely calm.
Police Doubt Story.
While- local pollco aro Inclined to
doubt the man's story, they are plainly
puzzled over the way he has stuck
to tho details In repetitions of It. Three
to six years in jail Is tho penalty for
conviction for tho crime of which
Nichols Is charged here. Local police
paid today that If Superintendent Holtz,
of Indianapolis, wanted him they would
waive claim to Nichols.
Nichols told the story as coolly as
though he wcro detailing an ordinary
event. Ho Is about twenty-flvo years
old, flvo feet eight Inches In height,
and weighs about 1C0 pounds. Ills face,
which, like his hair, is dark, Is clean
When flatly accused by Marshal Ent
wlstle of tho local police of "putting
over a flno fake," Nichols looked him
In the. eyes and said:
"All right. Take It how you want to.
I may not look it, but I have suffered
some over this, and I couldn't keep
It on my conscience. I know I havo
Jots to live for, and fully realize that
I have a good chance to hang for It. I
also believe llrmly that the police never
would havo got the goods on me The
knife that I did tho act with I throw
Into somo river or stream over which
we passed In a cab which Knight and
I tooK when we loft tho scene.
Nichols said he first met Knight in
New York about a year ago. Ho said
ho met him again in October at tho
Washington skating rink In Indlana
ipolls, and that a few weeks before Dr
Knabe was murdered was asked to "do
the Job for $1,600 " Nichols declared he
was being pressed for some bills, and In
desperation took up tho offer. Nichols
came hero a few weoks ago to visit two

was here Ho has a brother on the

poignant recollection of tho disastrous
efacape of the royal family from over
whelmed Londor soven months before.
As reckoned by the almanac, It was
the 13th of August, moro than fifteen
months since Cosmo had sent out his
first warning to the public, when tho
Ark crossed tho meridian of 74 degrees
west. In about 41 degrees north latltudu,
and the adventuress knew that New
York was once more beneath them.
There was great emotion among both
passengers and crew, for tho majority
of them had elthor dwelt in New York

enterprises and Its people, and, vain as
must be the hope of seeing an relic of

lighter and more brilliant hue and
here, over the site of New York, the
waters were of bright, luminous sap

Cosmo declared that the change of tho
sea color was undoubtedly due to soma

densation tho water had been produced,

On tho afternoon of the second day,
n.Mr thpv niraln left the Vicinity Ot
New York, Cosmo went out on the rear
of the Ark, and, leaning over tno ran,
seemed to be watching h tently some
thing In the water a considerable dis
tance astern Suddenly he leaned over,
and, losing his balance, plunged head
long into tno sea.
A cry rose from those who had been
watching him from a distance, and a
rush wus mad by Joseph Smith for
thn rldne There he t-houted the ter-
lible news to Captain Arms The latter
knew what to do when there was a

to stop the ship and lower the boats. Two

At that moment there was a gurgling

It was Cosmo Vernal. Ho had beon
perhaps a full minute under water, nnd
ho could not speak. They hauled him
over the thwart and laid him down. As
they did so a loud cheer saluted their
ears, and they saw that tho Ark, which
under tho conduct of tho mariner whom
tho captain had left in charge, had
rounded about, wa nearlng the scene
