IS SLAIN IN HOME
Chicago, III, April 14. George Dietz,
owner of a women's tailoring establish
ment, was found murdered at his home
ou Aldine avenue early today. His
head was crushed. It is believed he
was beaten to death with a hammer,
which was found in the room. A let
ter was found in the noin indicating
ri venge as the motive. He was wealthy
and lived alone with his wife, who
discovered the crime. The slayer es
caped without awakening the woman,
Pietz and his wife occupied separate
bedrooms. Questioned by the police,
Mrs. Pietz denied all knowledge of the
ciime and said the first she knew of
the murder was when she went to
awa.ke her husband.
The letter, which was unsigned, was
wri'ten on a typewriter on yellow
paper and illiterate to a degree that
led the police to suspect this feature
of the crime was planned to confuse
investigators. The letter in part said:
'I feel '.ike man that do riht. I kill

RELIEVED BY COUGHING!
While Fever Has Almost En-i
tirely Disappeared, Phy-
sicians Are Worried. ;
Rome, April 14. The pope's temper
ature decreased at 1 o'clock today to
!S degrees. The disappearance of fe
ver is interpreted as a sign there is
no more fear of pneumonia.
Professor Marchiafava, on leaving
the pope's apartment after examining
him, said: ;
"I now trust the pope's illness will
have a favorable solution, if it's pos
sible to induce the patient to take
proper care of himself."
A bulletin issued by the papa! phy
sicians early today said: 1
"His holiness passed a tranquil
night, lironrhial symptoms ar.' reas
suring. His temperature is W. lls'
general condition is good." j
His improvement is considered most
encouraging. Last night was the sev
enth since the first relapse suffered by
the pope, and gravest anxiety hdilieen
caused by his increasing weakness and
Tt now appears that excessive cough-
ing suffered last night greatly relieved
the pon'iff and enabled him to obtain j
long, restful sleep. During the night i
h'R temperature gradually decreased
until it went down to !i8.
Although the pope rested quietly;
this forenoon his physicians were !
p"mewhat concerned about his increas-;
nig weakness. The pontiff took little no- j
tice of those around him. For the j
most part he remained silent and pas- j
; si.Eir.iV- . . - - t
In the middle of the day the pope
had a short sleep, almost uninterrupt
ed by coughing.
Pr. Aniicl visited the pope twice af
ter the departure of Marchiafava this
morring. Amlci considered his condi
tion stationary. Rome, is taking the
pope's Illness with outward trariquil-
y. The widespread conviction is that
dei'th is approaching it will not come
for some days at least. Churches are
not uiiusu.ill-crowded. Ordinary tour
ists are still allowed to visit the gal
leries at the Vatican. Carriages drive
up frequently conveying cardinals, am
bio sado-s and high prelates io inquire
of the ) ope s condition and n ad the
lairs: bulletins. The physicians have
become clever In eluding would-be in-
1 terviewers. They enter sometimes
one door and sometimes another, uul
.there is an infinite number to chocs"
from. If they happen to be caught they
are utterly noncommittal.
AI.I. Bt'SIXESS GOES ON.
Inside the Vatican all is tranquil and
! business seems to be transacted as
1 usual. This is in marked contrast to
when Ijpo XIII was on his 6ick bed,
when everything was at a standstill
uuu en-Hi. mmuiiiuu rxiBueu, ri ue-
tore iiih ueaui. Anaugfraraie ior a
conclave of cardinals are being pushed
forward. It is said in Rome that if any
conclusion is to be drawn from present
quietness it must be that those around
the pope do not expect him to d!e. Per
sistent cold weather augments the dif
ficulty in treating the pope satisfac
torily. TO ESCAPE PSEVMOXIA.
At 5:40 it was stated the condition
of the pope remained stationary dur
ing the afternoon. His temperature
had not risen, which was considered
certain proof there was no trace of
pneumonia, also of the certainty of the
pope's recovery unless there are com
plications. JAPAN TO CARRY

Madrid, April 14. King Aifonso
yesterday once more narrowly escaped
being the victim of an anarchist at
tempt against his life. Three shots
were fired at the king yesterday after
noon in the streets of the capital, op
posile the Hunk of Spain, by a native
of Barcelona, Rafael Sanchez Allegro,
who was Immediately overpowered.
King Alfonso owes his escape to his
own courage, quickness and skilled
horsemanship. Accompanied by his
staff. he was riding along the Calle
(te Alcala, returning from the cere-
. j .,
mony or swearing in recruits, when a
man sprang from the sidewalk and
si i zed the bridle of the king's horse
v ith one hand, presenting a revolver
point blank with the other.

Before the assailant was able to pull
j tht trigger again a secret service man
sprang upon him. The two men fell
i to the ground locked ln each other's
arms, struggling furiously. The as-
: sassin managed to free his revolver
! arm and fired two more shots in rapid
succession, but the officer knocked hia
arm aside and the bullets flew harm
lessly through the air.
At the sound of the first shot the
king's staff forced their horses on the
sidewalk and made a ring around the
assassin, who fought fiercely ln the
grip of four policemen before he was
, overpowered and handcuffed,

He had hardly been back in the pal

i clamor arose. The two squares on
wbich the palace looks were black with i
people of all classes, desirous of show

'their admiration for his bravery. The!
king went to the balcony and acknowl-

the clergy, then the pallbearers and

of the most notable gatherings New

into the church. Admission was by
card. So great had been the demand
for tickets many hundreds could not
be accommodated. Not half of the
congregation w-ith whom Morgan wor
shipped, obtained admission.
AV.AXAXCHE OF FLOWERS.
Among nonorary pallbearers were
Iewis Cass Ledyard, Elihu Root, Rob

and Sth Low. The chancel was bank
ed with high floral offerings. But
these were only a small part of the
hundreds that poured into the Morgan
home. Most of these were left behind
and will be distributed among hospi
tals. Among the flowers were orchids and
palm leaves from Emperor William of
Germany; a gold maltese with cross
beneath crown, and palms from the
French republic; a garland of violets
and lilies of the valley from the Brit
ish ambassador, and a wreath of or
chids from the Italian government.
Four pews were reserved for partners
of the Morgan company and their
wives. Thirty-one societies, institu-i

Morgan had been identified, were rep-

Washington, D. C, April 14. Presl
dent Wilson believes the tariff bill
meets the general approval of the
country; that no healthy business will
be interrupted and that, while in most
cases, the cost of living will not be
immediately reduced, the consumer
will feel at once the benefit of a re
duction of the sugar duty. These
views were expressed by the presi
dent In an open talk to newspaper
men at the White house today. Ha
explained his main reason for desir
ing a reduction on sugar was that
the consumers deserved It.
The president declared that arrange
ments by which prices were fixed
would surely be made impossible when
a truly competitive situation was
created, and that the public would get
the benefit very promptly In the case
of sugar, as he knew competitive ele
ments were ready to contest.
Chairman Underwood of the ways
