BRITISH NURSE DIED
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.
"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
"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'
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."

"The worst I ever knew Just cut

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
"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
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
