THAT'S WHAT BARON SAYS
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal.. Jan.
25.—Henry yon Kuhlman, bach
elor German baron, diplomat and
army officer, arrived in this city
recently after a stay in the Orient
as German military attache at
Pekin. He iromptly startled the
women by announcing through
the press that all women are
"born liars.' ' But he didn't slop
there, he added insult to injury
by continuing:
"1 could think of no more
dreadful fate than to be the hus
band of an American woman."
The baron wears a monacle.
After twirling the small glass eye
covering, he added:
"Women are illogical, Inconse^
quential and untrustworthy." For
a irember of the diplomatic ser
vice, the baron is a plain speaker.
"Women," again began tne
titled one, "are lacking In that
sense of moral duty which holds
men on a high plane." After
this shot the baron settled him
self more comfortably on tne
womens' lounge on the steamer
and took a fresh start.
"The American woman may be
beautiful, but she is spoiled.
American men have made her a
goddess and she has made ridicu
lous slaves of them. In Germany
we do not treat women as su
perior beings. We make them
our equals by keeping them un
der our thumbs.
"Man," concluded the baron,
"In woman's superior, mentally
and physically. Women knows no

BESSIE M'COV.
NEW YORK, Jan. 25. —Miss
Bessie McCoy is going back to
the stage. She cannot resist the
call. When she became the wife
of Richard Harding Davis, novel
ist and war correspondent, last
July, the "Yama Yama Girl" de
clared she would never, never
care for the theater again. But
today she has changed her mind.
"I most, certainly Intend to re
turn to the stage," saW Mrs. Da
vis over the telephone from her
husband's home at Mount Klsco,
N. Y.
"I have never been able to be
lieve that a woman's work should
consist only in milking cows or
feeding chickens, and so I am go
ing back to do some real work.
I expect to work for only short
seasons and each year I shall re
turn to my husband's home to
finish my cow milking, chicken
feeding education."
Mr. Davis assured the reporter
that it was against his wishes that
Mrs Davis was returning.

This wan the basis of (lie M iller defense.
John H. Terry, » prominent Seattle, attorney and former

meeting with Taylor in I'errys rooms in .Seattle in which the
boy accomplice wild he MM constantly in fear of Detective Cap

what mi said at that linn-.
Judge Glasgow asked that tno
jury be dismissed while he in
formed the court as to his mo
tive in disclosing the conversa

Taylor.
"I wish to show that Taylor
went to Perry three weeks HO
for advice and that Perry Uked
him if he were afraid to ro on
the witness stand," said Ulnsgow.
"Taylor then told him 'Ferry,

Judge Clifford sustained l!ie

Glasgow attemi ted to cite 10

Practically the only po!nr

the testimony of several witnesses
that Taylor had told them tie h;i<l
