PRESIDENT TAFT DENIES
PARDON TO MORSE
Washington, Dec. 25. The president
yesterday declined to pardon Charles
W. Morse, a former New York banker.
The explanation cf his decision is con
tained in the following statement is
sued from the White house:
"The president today called into
consultation the surgeon general of the
army, the surgeon general of the navy,
and MaJer M. A. de Laney of the med
ical corps of the United States army,
on the report of the board of physi
cians at Atlanta as to the physical
condition of Charles W. Morse.
"After full consideration of the re
port as explained to him by them, the
president was not satisfied that imme
diate action was necessary, but direct
ed that he be kept fully advised at
frequent intervals of any changes."
Chicago, Dec. 25. Illinois has
now reached fourth place in the sale
of Red Cross Christmas set Is. The
estimated sales in the state since
Dec. 2 are 2,500,000 stamps. Last
year 1,707,373 seals were sold. As
the stamps will remain on sale un
til Jan. 1, those Interested in the
anti-tuberculosis movement figure
that 3,000,000 will be disposed of in
Illinois this year. New York leads
in stamp sales. Then comes Massa
chusetts and Wisconsin.
The sales in the state outside of
Chicago are far greater than in any
preceding year. Not only are the
seals being sold In all of the larger
cities of the state, but societies have
been organized to fight tuberculosis
and through them thousands of
stamps are being sold to raise funds
to carry on the work. The number
of agents selling etamps outside of
Chicago is 980.
SOLD ALL OVER CTO1
In Chicago the seals are sold in
624 places. Including department
stores, drug stores, hospttala and
postofflce substations. The stamps
have also been sold in booths in the
federal building, the Masonic tem
ple and express offices.
The sale waa opened in the booth
in the corridor of the federal build
ing on Dec. 2 and since that time
the daily receipts have always ' ex
ceeded $100. The total sales to date
from the federal building booth have
brought in $1,679.86. Last Tues
day was the big day, $151.47 being
HOPES FOR LARGER SALES.
"Although Illinois now ranks
fourth in the sale of I ed Cross seals
the sales should be even larger,'
said James Minnick, superintendent
of the Chicago Tuberculosis instl
tute. "Last year Illinois ranked
tenth, so a big gain this year Is ap
parent. The sales in Illinois should
be much larger, however. Illinois
should use more stamps than Wis
consin, bnt we lack the organization
in the state outside of Chicago.
"We are getting county and city
organizations, however, and next
year Illinois ought to do much bet
ter. I have been out through the
state and have organized 14 socl
eties for the study and prevention of
tuberculosis. This gives ns 25 such
societies outside of Chicago.
PAIR OF LIVES TAKEN
BY AN INSANE WOMAN
Sandwich, 111., Dec. 25. On the
morning of the day before Christ
mas, while her 6-montbs-old baby
was cooing in its cradle, Mrs. Fred
Feazel shot and killed her husband,
Fred Feazel, manager of the Corlin
sky dry goods store of this city. She
telephoned for his brother to come
to her home as soon as he could.
Then she went back into the room
where the body of her husband lay.
There she committed suicide. Ever
since the coming of her baby six
months ago, Mrs. Feazel has at
times shown signs of insanity. At
times she would have nothing to do
with the care of the child. She was
extremely Jealous of her husband and
at various times made the threat
that she would not die without him.
After eating his breakfast with his
wife Mr. Feazel rose from the table
and went into another room where
the baby was. After kissing the lit
tle one goodby he turned to go out
of the room to put on his overcoat.
As he turned and took a few steps
with his back toward his wife she
fired two shots at him. A few min
utes later she ended her own life.
Both were young people. Before she
took her own life Mrs. Feazel shot
at her baby, but missed.
