BRITISH NURSE DIED MARTYR'S DEATH Cousin Declares Referring to Miss Cavell Shot by Germans London, Oct. 21, 6:40 a: m. The circumstances connected with the execution by the German authorities at Brussels of Miss Edith Cavell, a British nurse, ocdupy constantly in creasing attention In London. The forthcoming publication of the report of Brand Whitlock, American min ister to Belgium, on his efforts in Miss Cavell's behalf is awaited with keenest interest. This report will be pub lished in tomorrow morning's news papers. Report Long One. The Mail says the report is a long one, and adds: "This account will strike a note of horror throughout the world. It will tell of the wonderful heroism of a woman who had nursed German wounded. It will tell of the greatest fight for a woman's life that was ever fought, of unavailing efforts of nobles and neutrals to combat the callous secret cunning of the Germans." The Post publishes today a letter from Miss Cavell's cousin concerning her devotion to her work as a nurse. Voluntarily Remained. "My cousin's Intense devotion to the alleviation of suffering caused her to devote her life to nursing in Brussels," the letter says. "She voluntarily re mained there to continue her work when the city was taken by the Ger mans. She would have nursed a German with as much tender care as an Englishman. "In a letter to me she said, 'We have no wounded here now. The al lies do not come here and the Ger mans are sent back to their own coun try. The few that remain are nursed by, their own countrywomen, so we are denied the- great consolation of be ing of use in our own special way.' Died Martyrs Death. ."She allowed the womanly quality of compassion to get the better of prudence and self-interest. For this she suffered untold miseries and died a martyr's death." English newspapers drew a parallel between . the , case of Miss Cavell in Belgium and that of Mrs. Louise Her bert, who was sentenced to six months' imprisonment as a spy in England. Mrs. Herbert's appeal was heard at Durham yesterday. She is a German, wife of an English curate at Darling ton. She admitted that she had sought information regarding muni tions and intended to send this infor mation to Germany. The Judge asked her yesterday: "Did you intend to send the information to Germany if you got the chance?" "Yes, I did," she replied. Corresponded With Germany. Mrs. Herbert also admitted she had corresponded with Germany through friends in Switzerland. The Judge, astonished by her frank answer, re marked: "This woman has a con science she wishes to answer truth fully and deserves credit for that. At the same time, she is dangerous." He affirmed the sentence of six months' imprisonment. Lusltania Lesser Crime "A crime that dwarfs even that of the Lusltania," was the characteriza tion of the execution of Miss Cavell, ip a discourse by Dr. Ingram, Bishop of London, at a Trafalgar Day ser vice in St. Martin's church today. "Always, up to now," said the bishop, "Chivalry has enlightened the horrors of war. But it is not so with our enemies of today, whose latest crime is the murder in cold blood of a po6r, defenseless English girl." City Items John Quinn is in New York, The case of W. J.

"The worst I ever knew Just cut throat work on both sides," was the reply. Mr. Swacker wanted to know if C. P. Clark, then president of the New Haven and named as a co-conspirator in this case, had had a conversa tion with the witness about the com petition. Claimed Reduction Unfair. Mr. Mellen said at that time the New Haven had announced a reduc tion in the running time of three pas senger trains from Boston to New York and that he went to Clark and protested that this reduction was un fair to the New York and New England- I persuaded him not to make a change in these trains," said the wit ness. "What did you do to persuade him?" "I told him all the things that were likely to happen." "What were those things?" "Well, I had In my pocket a copy of an advertisement which I said 1 was going to put in the papers that afternoon announcing that we would run a train to Allyns Point to connect by boat to New York and that the fare between Boston and New York would be $1. Clark safd 'Is .that honest. Injun?,' and I said, 'It it. " Hired by Clark. Two months after this, Mellen said, he became second vice president in charge of traffic of the New Haven. "Who employed you?" ' "Charles P. Clark." I "What duties were assigned you?" 1 "To look after the traffic," replied the witness curtly. "Did he say why he employed you?" "He said I made too much of a nuisance of myself on the New Eng land." Takes Up Housa tonic Line. Mr. Swacker then tok up with the witness the New Haven's acquisition of the Housatonic, which was one of the New York and New England con nections with New York. This was a freight connection by car floats from Wilson Point, Conn. The New Eng land also had a passenger connection by boat to the Long Island railroad, which the witness described as hav ing only a "nuisance value " When the New Haven got tho ' Housatonic, the car float connection was discontinued, he said. The Hous atonic, owned with the New York and New England, Joint interest in the New England terminal company, which operated the car float connec tion and which operated at a deficit. After the Housatonic was secured. "Th6 New Haven," said Mr. Mellen, "showed a disinclination, to come for ward with Its proportional share of the deficit." Not Sur on Foreclosure. Whether the New Haven then caus ed the foreclosure of the terminal company's property, the witness said he was not sure. It was possible, he thought, that the New Haven purchased outright tho New England's interest in the com pany before the foreclosure or that it was a Joint foreclosure. At any rate, the New Haen gt the property in the foreclosure sale. "Do you know whether J. P. Mor gan participated In the negotiations for the acquisition of the Housaton ic?" "Only in the most general way" said the witness. Clark Wanted Suit. Returning to the subject of his en trance into the New Haven, Mr. Mel len testified that Clark asked him to institute a suit against he New Eng land and that he did it through Bos ton brokers. The suit, the government alleges, -was intended to embarrass the New England. Mr- Mellen then described the New Haven's absorption of the Connecti cut river road, another of the New York and New England Connections and a connection also of the Boston and Maine. Next he told of the ac quisition in 1893 of the Old Colony railroad, which had steamship lines from Fall River and New Bedford to New York. Goldsmith Suit.
