BIBB GIVEN UNDER STRESS OF FEAR.
Boy's False Testimony Convicts Father
Chicago, Mov. 12. Apparently
straightforward testimony from a boy
convicting his own father of murder
had a remarkable sequel during the
day in the discharge of the alleged
murderer, Jolm Wiltrax. The boy,
when taken from the influence of the
police, repudiated the testimony given
in court and stated that his accusa
tions against his father were made
under stress of fear. The reversal of
the boy's testimony was due largely to
the intervention of Peter Van Vlissin
gen, a wealthy Chicagoan, who be
came convinced that the case against
the father was groundless.
ENDS IN A DOUBLE TRAGEDY.
Husband and Wife Suicide After a
New York, Nov. 12.Because her
husband had reproved her, Mrs. Kath
erine Green is dead at her own hands
in Brooklyn, while the husband is
dangerously wounded in a hospital,
having shot himself when he saw the
result of his words with his wife.
George Green had criticised his wife
for going out walking with another
man, and without saying a word, she
shot herself through the heart. Over
come with horror, the husband picked
up the same revolver and shot himself.

intends to Continue as Chairman of
New York, Nov. 12.Thomas Tag
gait, chairman of the Democratic com
mittee, has no intention of resigning
his post, according to a statement
made during the day. Mr. Taggait
said the utmost harmony existed
among the members of the committee
and that they see no necessity for re
organization of the party. He has no
excuse to offer for the overwhelming
defeat of the Democratic national
ticket and believes this is no time to
consider either candidates or policy
for the campaign four years hence.
"I have returned to New York the
same as I left it, a Democrat," he
said. "No man, no policy nor any
platform would have stopped the cy
clone of Roosevelt. There is no'ac
counting for cyclones. Neither party
had expected it, nor did either have a
line on it.
"The utmost harmony exists among
the members of the committee and
there is no. need for reorganization.
There are no heartburnings, no recrim
inations, excepting the general regret
for the defeat of our candidate. I
have no intention of resigning. The
national headquarters will be at In
dianapolis. It's" too early yet to talk
politics and policies and presidential
possibilities of four years hen^e."

JAPAN MUST ACCEPT LESS THAN
SHE ASKED BEFOR'E HOS-
St. Petersburg, Nov. 12.Referring
to the British foreign minister's arbi
tration suggestion anent the Far East
ern war a prominent official of the for
eign office expressed the opinion to the
Associated Press that such an offer,
coming .frpm Japan, c-puld. not possibly
"Such "a controversy," he said, "can
not be arbitrated. The idea is not
worth considering. We believe the
war has reached the turn of the tide
and it must go on. The only possibil
ity of peace now, in my opinion, would
be on the basis of a proposition sub
mitted to Russia by Japan offering to
accept less than she demanded before
hostilities-opened. As it is inconceiv
able that Japan at this juncture is
prepared to offer such terms I see no
chance of ending the war."
Paris dispatches published here say
that the French government expressly
excluded the intention of intervening
when it proposed its good offices for
the settlement of the North sea dis
ESSENTIAL BASIS OF PEACE
JAPAN WILL AGREE TO EVAC-
UATE MANCHURIA IF RUS-
SIA DOES LIKEWISE.
London, Nov. 12.The dispatch of
the Associated Press from Washington
confirming the statement made in
these dispatches that Japan had indi
cated her willingness to entertain
peace suggestions from President
Roosevelt or King Edward created
much interest here. Baron Hayashi,
the Japanese minister, said:
"After the fall of Port Arthur Japan
would, I believe, be ready to treat for
peace on no higher essential basis than
that Russia should evacuate Manchu
ria, Japan also agreeing to a similar
evacuation. The two great difficulties
in the way of any suggestion of peace
are, first, the apparent opposition of
Emperor Nicholas' present advisers to
a settlement of any kind second, the
preservation of Russian prestige.
When a nation's prestige, if not gone,
Is severely impaired it is a difficult
matter, even with the best of inten
tions, to preserve it."
The Associated Press learns that
Queen Alexandra has been in constant
communication with the dowager em
press of Russia and Emperor Nicholas
himself during the last few days. This
is interpreted here as a hopeiul sign
and as possibly likely to lead, though
not in the immediate future, to the
establishment of some modus yivendi
whereby steps looking to arbitration
might be initiated without offense to
The reiteration of the American
state department's determination not
to intervene except on requests from
both of the belligerents tallies with
the official attitude of the British gov
ernment, but it is thought that beiore
long some method^ may privately be
devised whereby this diplomatic bar
rier to action will be overcome.
Baron Hayashi has no news from
Port Arthur and discredits the rumors
of its capitulation. W4&?

result of the killing of Constable Wal

When Sheriff Daniels* and John Roll
were killed by Ed Jackson the saloon
were at once closed and Governoi

The governor replied- he would hold
troops in readiness, but advised form

meet with serious resistance troops
will be sent to their relief. The Jack

Marshal Harrison B. Ash of Thurmun.1,ybdheade
is scouring the mountains near Mont
gomery. Two bloodhounds arrived
from Dayton, O., and they were placet!
on the trail. The officials in Mont
gomery fear further trouble, as senti
ment against the slayer of Daniels is
very strong. Before the murder of
Daniels the sentiment was with the
Jacksons, against Policeman Elliott.
The excitement for miles around
Montgomery is intense because of the"
trouble expected after the capture of
Jackson. Deputy sheriffs are being
sworn in from adjacent counties rap
idly and hastened to the posse to pre
vent lynching or any violence if Jack
son is taken alive and also to prevent
any attempt of Jackson's friends to
rescue the prisoner.
MYSTERIOUS TRIPLE MURDER.
Family of Wealthy Broker Killed and
Auburn, Cal., Nov. 12.A horrible
triple murder was committed at the
home of Julius Weber, a wealthy
broker and society leader.
His wife and pretty nineteen-year
old daughter Bertha and son Paul were
the victims. The former two were
found with bullet wounds in their
breasts, while the latter, cut and
slashed with a keen instrument,!
rushed into the arms ~of a rescuer, dy-1
ing a few moments later.
The father has not been seen. It is
thought his body may be in the ruins
of the house, which was set on fire,
evidently in the hope of hiding the
Neighbors discovered the fire in the
evening, ran in and found Mrs. Weber
dying on the floor. Paul was badly
burned and died a few moments after
being carried out. Bertha was found
burned beyond recognition.
Officers think it was the work of a I
madman. There were no evidences of i
