of "Beauty" Bpach, will take the wit

here the night of February 26, 1911.
Tbe Beach case Is -one of the strang

L. Gunter says, "that we will prove
that Beach attacked his wife with a
gold-handled diamond studded pocket
knife, which we later obtained, spotted
with blood. A perfectly clear motive
will "be shown, and New York social
circles may be somewhat startled when
the details of' the" affair are revealed."
. The motive is said to be a mysterious
"man in gray" who Is said to have been
seen running from the place where, a
few seconds before, Mrs. Beach had
utttred a piercing scream for help.
Mr. Beach and his wife have seem
ingly been the best of "chums" since
the affair; have shared the same state
room on the boats during their trip
abroad, and have never been seen to
quarrel or to appear otherwise than
happy in each other's presence.
The prosecution bases Its case on al
leged discrepancies In the statements of
Beach and his wife, and upon differ
ences In tales related by them and by
the servants and neighbors.

LONDON, February 2. Servians
and Bulgarians In equal numbers,
their thirst for war only partly sat!
ated by the past campaign, are
straining at the leash today, ready
to sack the sacred city of Adrianople
tomorrow at the word of command.
The order from the peace envoys
here to General Savoff, the Bulgar
ian commander-in-chief, will release
tomorrow an army of men willing,
even eager, to pillage and burn, loot
and destroy the sacred mosques in
that portion of the1 Turkish city
which the Young Turk3 have refused
to yield to the allies.
Must Have City.
"We must have Adrianople; If not by
word, by deed," was the statement
made by Joseph Angleoff, the Bulgarian
consul general to England, yesterday.
"When that Is accomplished, we will
be willing to return to conference."
After the first shot Is fired Monday
it will be too late for an .attempt at
negotiation. The victorious allies plan

student. The basic facts of the case are
enough to engage the Interest of the

These facts are the Ignorance and
fanaticism of Moslems." The prophet
made no provision for the defeat of his
forces by international conferences. He
did promise a short and swift journey
to the arms of the hourls of paradise
for those ol the faithful who should fall
while fighting for the green standard.
The ancient slogan was "Victory or
death." In all its primltiveness that
faith still animates the bulk of the Mos

This condition is the reliance of the

Integrity of the empire. The honor of

The cabinet understood well that the
mobs were with the Young Turks, and
that Is why thev resigned on demand.
These radical Young Turks know how
to play politics. It Is true, they had
failed In the business of governing the
country. After the revolution, which de
throned Abdul Hamld, they had every
thing their own way. but they proved
themselves unequal to the bigness of the
