The statesmen told his storv without hesitation and with a quiet dignity which impressed the audience deeply. Vie testified in the beginning re garding his wife’s emotional insanity ind gave several instances which w »nt to prove that wnile laboring u i« lei* great excitement she was never responsible for her acts. Then lie entered i 1 detail into Hu story of the tragedy of their lives. Iis first marriage had been unhappy nit his second marriage with the wo nan who is on trial was as happy as •ould possibly be. Before divorcing ;is first wife he had written love let ters to the woman who is now hi • ife and had bared his soul to her.

WASHINGTON, July 22—An appeal was sent out today by President Wil son and Secretary of State Bryan to Carranza and Villa to bury their differ ences and unite for the sake of Mex ico’s peace. This appeal was considered to be necessary as the rumors coming from Mexico regarding the relations be tween the two leaders of the constitu tionalists arc disquieting to say the least of it. Indeed it is generally con sidered that peace will come if these two unite and agree on some fixed pol icy but on the other hand if they refuse to come to terms the most serious re sults may be looked for. The whole fate of Mexico seems to be hanging on the next words uttered by either Carranza or Villa. No informa tion has reached this city as to whether they are still negotiating or not but it is presumed that some efforts are being | made to bring them together. There is a feeling that the differences are more serious than was generally known. MURDERERS OE MADERO MUST MEET THEIR DEATH WASHINGTON, July 22 —Carranza, head of the con stitutionalists, has answered the demands of Carbajal, the acting president, by declaring that (he murderers of Ma dero must die. Carbajal formally offered the constitutionalists to let them take over the governnn i t provided an amnesty were granted to Huerta and his sympathizers but it has now been made clear by the answer of the constitutionalist head tb»t no such amnesty can be looked for. He has, however, declared himself to he willing to suspend hostili ties until some anangcmcn: can be made and there is a hope that peace will prevail long enough to let both sides conic together and try to bring about a friendly under standing. The government forces under Carbajal are still pow erful but it is doubtful if lhoy will attempt to oppose the rebels if the latter should march on the capital. ■ -— .. ■ ■ -- --- - I CONGRESSMAN LEAVES HOUSE McDermott of Illinois an nounces HIS RESIGNA TION UN ID R FIRE ■ WASHINGTON, July 21.—As the majority report of the committee in to lobbying scandal investigation as about to be read today Congress man McDermott of Illinois rose from ais seat and announced his resigna tion from the house.
