Favored the Defendant.
Parle, Aug. 4. The Turkish embassy
bere, acting under instructions from the
Yaldiz Kiosk, brought a suit, which was
heard today, against Ahmed Rizza, editor
of tlie Mechveret, a young Turk journal,
and his assistant, Ganem, for Insulting the
Sultan. Tlie case was chiefly noteworthy
owing to the sympathetic attitude of the
judge and pu' lie prosecutor, and the out
spoken utterances of the witnesses iu favor
of the defendants.
The puMlc prosecutor made no attempt
to conceal his distaste of the duty Imposed
upon him by his orrice, and he referred to
the accused ss "the honorable defendants.''
Be remarked that several French news
papers had quoted the Mechveret articles
and had defied him to prosecute them.
The Turkish embaisy had not applied for
the prosecution of these papers.

Adnmx Police Warned, but Failed
to Arrest the Fugitive.
The police department was all excite
ment last night over a mmor that Carr,
the ravisacr of Rosa Robinson, was in the
city and had beeu located at the house
of Mrs. M. P. McCarthy, at No. 21 Kstreet
There was a great gathering of officers
at headquarters. The major of police
was there. Inspector Pearson was there
and the entire detective force reported
Mr- Charles Doten, of Ko. 27 K street
northeast, gave the information which
led the police to follow up this clue.. Do
ten's wire was a sister to Charles Bald
win, Carr's intimate friend. The story
of Mn- Poten's illness, caused by the
police raid of the Doten residence, Is al
ready familiar to the public.
Mr. Doten went home yesterday and his
wire informed him that Carr had been in
the house all the time. He was con
cealed in a loft between the ceiling of
the fourth floor and the roof. Mrs. Doteu
said that her illness was in a large meas
ure due to the fnct that she knew Can
was In her home.
Mr. Bbten decided to tell the story to
the police He called on Major Moore
yesterday and Inspector Hollinberger de
cided to have the house searched. Precinct
Bctectlve Barnes, wlio has bungled lu this
affair several times, accompanied by Po
liceman McDonald, went to the Doten
residence about 6 o'clock yesterday
A fiir search was made, but the un
skillful sleuths failed to discover the man.
He, nevertheless, was in the house. While
they were looking for him he had crawled
over the root and down into a neighboring
house, occupied by Mr. Conley of the Gov
ernment Printing Office.
Inspector Hollinberger, however, was
convinced that Carr had been in the Doten
residence. A message was S2nt to all the
precincts to look out for him. Detectives
were dispatched to all parts of the city,
Carr all the while being In the back room
or Mr. Coulpy's houe.
About 7 o'clock Miss May Conley, ac
companied by Mrs. Conley, went to the
Tourth floor of the house. The young lady
noticed a gleam or light as she weut up
and also that the trap door leading to
the roof was open. Having occasion to
go into the upper story shortly afterward
she found that the trap dcor had been
The presence of Carr, however, was still
unknown to her. Upon going downstairs
the Carr incident was a subject or con
versation. During the rainfall, Mrs. Con
ley went upstairs to clobe the windows.
As she stepped into the room, a young man
with a bundle under his arm came from
behind the door.
'Carr,'' she streamed. Mistaking her
gestuic of alarm for an attempt to
seize him. he struck at her viciously, but.
fortunately, failed to hit her. The family
down stairs hparing the noise, strangely
enough, Immediately thought of Carr. A
moment later Carr ran down the steps and
out Into the street.
William Adams, a bookbinder In the Gov
ernment Printing Office, accompanied by
a young lady, happened to be passing the
house. Noticing that something was wrong,
he hastened to Inquire what was the matter.
Carr informed him that it was only family
trouble and went on up the street.
CaTr had gone but a short distance when
he started t run and Adams then knew
that something was the matter. Mrs.
Conley just then appeared at the door
and, although too excited to speak,
pointed to tbe fleeing man.
Adams started atter Carr, and being
eomehlng of an athlete, soon had hold of the
fuchive's collar. Garr turned and struck
Adams a crushing blow with a pair of shoes
which he had in a bundle. Adams mo
mentarily released his hold. Carr then
made off In another direction, Adams
Tbe pursuit lasted for several squares,
carr rinauy running Into an alley between
L and K streets A crowd had meanwhile
collected and, although a thorough search
of the neighborhood was made, no trace
of the fug'tive could be found.
The Ehocs which were dropped by Can
In hlsflighN werepirked up by Adams, who
had a bloody nose as another souveuir.
A policeman was scon found and the de
tectives at headquarters Informed. The
railroad tracks were closely watched, small
streets f.earched and all avenues leading
out of the city guarded, but Carr could
not be round. The .shoes were identified as
belonging to Carr and many persons who
knew the fugitive called at the Sixth
precinct Nation and inspected them.
Mrs. Conley said last night to a re
porter that she knew Carr when he was
a wall boy, but had not seen him in re
cent years. From the general appearance
of the man who struck at her in her
house, however, she Is positive tliat it
was the assailant of Rosa Robinson He
had on a coat, but no vest, and his clothes
were wrinkled and dirty, aa though he had
not had them off for some time. He was
in his stocking feet, holding his shoes In
one hand, while he had a bundle under his
Adams gave a similar description of the
man, adding that he had on a dark slouch
hat, which he pulled down over his eyes
as he ran. ne in every way answered to
the description of Carr. The police were
positive that the man was Carr, and ex
pect to have him under arrest today.
Mr. Doten denied some portions of the
story concerning his part In the case.
Hp denied that he gave Major Mcore the
information, and said that his wife did
be admitted that the house was again
searched with his permission. He denied
that Catr was in the house.
There was much excitement about the
McCarthy premises. Crowds of people
collected and not a few aided the police
men In their search. Detectives visited
the McCarthy house and made careful
Inquiry Into all the incidents connected
with the escapade.

Remarkable Suicide of Mra. Clara
Jaeger in New York.
CLAD IN HER BRIDAL ROBES
She Went to the Coroner and Ashed
Him How a Suicide Must Bo Re
ported to Him, Next Hay He He
celved a "Letter From Her An
nouncing Her Death.
New Tork, Aug. 4. Mrs. .Clara Jaeger,
wife of Prof. Felix Jaeger, an Instructor
in the New Tori: Conservatory of Music,
well known in local musical circles, com
mitted suicide tome time last night in her
apartments in the Conservatory building,
in East Eighteenth street, bj turning ou the
gas. After carefully locking the door
of her room so that her husband could not
get In when he returned home from a day's
outing at Coney Island, she drank halt a
vial of carbolic acid, turned on the gas and
sat down on a chair to await death.
Mrs. Jaeger began making preparations
for her death early yesterday afternoon.
It was evidently her Intention to make the
event as dramatic as possible, for she rirst
called on Coroner Hoeber at his homo and
notified him that she would have a case
for him the next day. Then she went
home and wrote him a long letter, review
ing all her troubles. Finally she tacked a
notice outside of her door forbidding any
body but the coroner to enter, and went
to her death attired In a whife silk even
Mrs. Jaeger was a rather good-looking
woman, forty-bix years of age. She was
attired la the height of fashion when she
called atCoioner Hoeber's home yesterday
and seemed cool and collected as she put
a fcerles of perplexing questions, to the
"1 want to know," she said, "just what
means one must take to report a suicide
to the coroner's office?"
"What is the case?" asked the coroner.
"Oh, it isn't ready, yet," said the wo
man, with a laugh.
"Well, you can report It in person, or by
letter. It's better to report it in person,
for that facilitates matters. If you have
a case of suicide to report, why, you can
reach me by telephone, either here or at
the coroner's office. I advise you, how
ever, to tell me now what you mean. If
you know of a suicide, it is your duty to
tell me of it." . ;
"Oh, I don't,'' said Mrs. Jaeger," "but"
I may be tomorrow, lou don't leave home
for down tolvu before 10 o'clock in the
"Then you'll hear from me, in all prob
ability, by the morning mail. Good-by,
and Mrs. Jaeger went away. The coro
ner concluded that the woman was de
mented. In the mall this morning Coroner TJoeber
got a letter sixteen pages long, written In
German, and telling him that the writer
would be dead when he received it. It
was Eigned "Clara, Jaeger," and contained
instructions for the coroner.
Be grabbed his hat, and in a very short
time was at the. conservatory very much
excited, and demanding to kuowwhat had
harpeued. He was enlightened by Prof.
Jaeger and Dr. S". N. Griswold, the,presl-.
dent of the conservatory, who had dis
covered what had happened some hour,
before. Pror. Jaeger, worn out by over
work, cpent Tuesday at Coney Island. He
returned home at midnight and found his
wife's room dour locked.
Die concluded that it was another one
of the little eccentricies to which ?he was
addicted and. going into another room
slept soundly until 7 o'clock. When he
nrose there was a strong smell of gas in
the room, and remembering thelockeddoor,
he ran to his wife's room. The door was
still locked, and on a piece of paper tack
ed to it was written:
"This door Is not to be opened except
by Coroner Hoeber, whom I havenotiricd."
Very much alarmed, Jaeger summoned
a doctor and two policemen. The door
Jwas broken open and the woman found
dead. The coroner refused to ;glve out
"the full contents of the letter. "
According to Dr. Griswold and Prof.
Jaeger the suicide was mentally unsound
