King George of Greece was assassinated here this afternoon. King George, who had taken per sonal command of his troops during the earlier period of the war, had heen here since December, when the Turk ish fortress was occupied by the Greeks after a short siege. The queen of Greece also had been here and has paid great attention to the care of the sick and wounded.

The news of the assassination of King George of Greece came from the correspondent of the Greece semi-official news agency at Saloniki. It was filed in sffoniki at 6:35 p- m. It is believed here that a censorship has been im posed and is preventing the dispatch f BothU?he Greek embassy and the British foreign office are without of ficial news of the assassination. The last previous report regarding thTmovements of the king of Greece was received in bonoon ago when he attended a thankiving service at Saloniki, on March 8, to celebrate the fall of the fortress of Jaerown Prince Constantine is still at Janina with the Greek army. Queen Mother Alexandra, who is King George's- sister,- had not received any news of the event at a. late hour. No Official Ileport. Washington, March 18. greek legation here had received no o ffic.al word of the assassination of King George up to 3 o'clock this afternoon and the press report caused the great est surprise and shocks. Members of the legation spoke of the king as greatly beloved by his people, this sentiment having been further developed by his active part in directing the affairs of Greece through the recent critical affairs of the Bal kan conflict. . The state department was similarly without any official advices. King George was in his sixty eighth year and had ruled fifty years. He was a brother of Queen Mother Alexandra of England and a son of the late king of Denmark. He was kn inns- of the Hellenes in 1863 in succession to Otho I. A previous attempt to assassinate him was maae in 1898, but was frustrated. King George was married in October, 1867, to Princess Olga, eldest daughter of the Grand Duke Constantine of Russia, a brother of the late Emperor Alexander II, Crown Prince Constan tine. who has been in active command of the Greek troop throughout the hos tilities in the eastern part of Turkey in Europe and who was at the head of the army which recently captured the Turkish fortress of Janina with its garrison of 32,000 men, will be the suc cessor oi his father. His wife is Prin cess Sofia, a sister of the German em peror. King George was often rated as an autocratic monarch, but in spirit he was democratic and did much for the prosperity of Greece which advanced rapidly under his rule. He took great interest in the organization of the de fensive forces of the country and with the assistance of the crown prince, brought the' army to the state of efficiency which enabled it to over come the Turkish resistance at the beginning of the war. His name was mentioned after hos tilities broke out as a candidate for the presidency of a permanent federation of the Balkan states, consisting of Bul garia, Servia, oMntenegro and Greece. When King George arrived in Saloniki on November 12 with Prince Constan tine and Prince George, he was warmly greeted by the Greek metropolitan and the senior officers of his army. All the houses were decorated with the Greek flag and thousands of people assembled to cheer him. He later took part in a service of thanksgiving in the archi episcopal church. In an interview King George at that time said that after the war probably would have a frontier north of Salon iki and Monastir and he was inclined to make Saloniki a free port. Since the occupation of Saloniki by the Greeks there has been some fric tion between them and their Bulgarian allies but it was thought this would be eventually overcome during the negoti ations for the partition of Turkish ter ritory.

The methods of the government in dealing with militant suffragettes were discussed in heated fashion in the house of com mons today. One of the unionist members, Harold Smith, declared the passive submission of the authorities to hunger strikes and subterfuges had brought ridicule on the administra tion of the law. "For mob rule," he urged, "emer gency measures are necessary. The home secretary has reduced the ad ministration of the law to a farce. The natural consequence is that the mob is taking the law into its own hands. "It is a disgrace to a civilized coun try that women are allowed openly to boast that they are criminally eon spiring to break the law and that nothing can deprive them of their lib erty. The home secretary ought to proclaim unlawful the meetings of the militant suffragettes, but his only at tempt to remedy the situation thus far has been a few puerile and futile efforts at forcible feeling, barbaric in their cruelty." Mr. Smith turned upon the home secretary and dramatically demanded that he resign from the cabinet. "You are a hopeless failure, sir," he shouted; "this present serious state of affairs can be handled only by strong men." BRYAN INDISCREET Such Is Belief of Morning Post, British Newspaper. Secretary of State Congratulat ed Irish on Home Rule. London, March 18. "A blazing indis cretion" is how the Morning Post de scribes the speech of William J. Bryan, the secretary of state, at the St. Patrick's day banquet given by Irish Americans at Washington on Saturday evening. The Post reprints the portion of the speech in which Mr. Bryan con gratulated the Irish nationalists in their success of the home rule bill and re ferred to the virtual end of hereditar; rule in the British empire. The Post says that while it does not suppose that Mr. Bryan intended to give offense, he should understand that his speech is regarded with keen resent ment by many people in Great Britain and in their .pinion is a gratuitous and warrantable interference in the domes tic affairs of the united kingdom. "As in the prudence and sagacity with which the secretary of state dis charges his task depends the relations of the United States with other coun tries," continues the Post, "it behooves him to observe caution in his references to other nations." Bryan Keiterates Statements. Chicago, March 18. William J. Bryan, secretary of state, arrived . here last night, went into conference with Gov ernor Dunne, made a brief appearance at the St. Patrick's day. banquet of the Irish Fellowship club, was best man at a wedding and boarded a train for Springfield, where he will address the legislature today just before ballot ing on the senatorships is resumed. At the fellowship banquet Secretary Bryan predicted early home rule for Ireland. ; .iterating his speech at Wash ington Saturday night, which has been criticized by the British press. "Two years from now Ireland will be celebrating home rule," he said. "There is every reason to believe that the house of commons in London will pass the bill again and make it law."

HONOR CLEVELAND Distinguished Gathering at Birthplace. His Daughter, Esther, Decor ated Room With Flowers. Caldwell, N. J., March 18. The little wooden house where Grover Cleveland was born attracted a distinguished company today for its dedication as a permanent memorial to the dead president. The formal program for the day began with the transfer of a purse of $17,610 in payment for the house, purchased by the Grover Cleveland Birthplace Memorial association from trustees of the First Presbyterian church. Richard F. Cleveland, the president's son, was selected to re ceive the key and open the front door, while his sister, Esther, was chosen as the first of the official visitors to en ter the room where her father saw the light just 76 years ago, and decorate it with flowers. Her mother, now Mrs. Thomas J. Preston, was among the spectators. The Cleveland me morial is the Presbyterian manse which the president's family occupied when his father was pastor of the Caldwell Presbyterian church. For its purchase the memorial association raised $25,000, of which $5,000 was contributed by residents of this town and the rest by a number of wealthy men, many of whom came here today for the dedication. A movement is on foot to raise $25,000 more by popular subscription to provide for its care. Until this money is obtained and a caretaker installed the manse will con tinue to be occupied by the present pastor of the church.

I TELLS HIS STORY Rev. Beers on Witness Stand All Day. Tells Story of His Married Life to Jury. DENIES BLACK'S TESTIMONY Says Ohio Lawyer Witness Made False Statements. Wife Left Home Solely Because of Religious Differences. . That despite the troubles in his fam ily he loved his Catholic wife and at all times was anxious that she remain with him and live with him, was the repeated statements of the Rev. W. L. Beers, who is being tried for the murder of his wife, who spent the morning testifying in his own behalf. Beers also denied any mistreatment of his wife, and declared on several oc casions that statements made by the state's witnesses were "absolutely false" where they stated or insinuated that the minister had in any manner mistreated his wife. Telling of the incident of the visit to the office of Attorney Harry Black in Tiffin, O., Beers denied that he called the pope an anti-Christ; denied that he said the priests were masters of the nuns, and in answer to a question de clared" that such testimony from Black was "absolutely false." He made the same statements regarding portions of the testimony of other witnesses of the state wherein anything concerning his alleged ill treatment of his wife had crept in. Beers talks slowly and carefully. Many times during the morning he has interrupted his attorney to finish answering a question, and has been a stickler for trivial facts. The name of a hotel at Tiffin where he stayed several days with his wife, where they went on the day they called at Black's office, before the conversation in the office, and many other matters of minor importance the minister lays great stress upon, and insists upon be ing permitted to give full answers. Most of the time he sits on the wit ness stand smiling, a broad, genial smile, talking slowly in his heavy voice. But every now and then, when some question relating to his wife's leaving him, or to his finding her scrubbing a restaurant floor in Tif fin, and when questioned about the events leading up to her death, the preacher has Tbroken into tears, and has answered for a moment or two in a choking voice while he fought back his feelings. During the morning session there were a couple of times that the attor neys engaged in a tilt. John J. Schenck had asked Beers with refer ence to hia visit to Father John P. Kunert, at New Washington, O., if he did not go early . in the morning be cause he was afraid the neighborhood would talk. This was objected to by the state's attorneys as leading, and the court interfered to warn Schenck that by the inflection of his voice he was putting the answer in the witness' mouth. "PVe got a right to ask that ques tion, a legal right to ask it," Schenck said. "I know why this man went to the priest early in the morning, and I intend to see that it gets before this jury." "Counsel says he knows," commented Attorney Hayden, "and if the witness will not testify counsel expects to tes tify himself as to the incident." Beers Called on a Priest. Beers said he went to see Father Kunert early in the morning in the winter of 1907. "What time did you go?" asked Schenck. "It was early, while wife was get ting breakfast I think." "What was your purpose in going so early?" "I thought the community might talk." "You were afraid the neighborhood might talk about you, weren't you?" demanded Schenck. This brought out the tilt. "Did you see the priest?" "Yea." "What did you go for?" "I went to talk to him about my wife being disturbed about her re ligion." "What was said?" "I said my wife was disturbed. I asked him if he couldn't advise her so she could be satisfied." "Tell the jury what he said. "He said my wife must have the privileges of the Catholic church and that to secure them she must secure from me an agreement that my child ren might be baptized and reared in the Catholic faith. He said he could n't advise her as I wished because of the laws of the church." "Was the conversation rnendiy?" "Yes, entirely friendly." "Did he tell you that your wife told him you had abused her?" "He did not." "Did you talk about that at all?" "We did not." "That story then, as told on this wit ness stand, was absolutely false?" Says Black's Story Was False. "It was absolutely false and a fic tion." Beers then said that tour to six months later he saw Father Kunert and asked him again to exercise his in fluence to help the witness and his wife live happily in their home. He said the priest told him he wished he might be of service, but that the rules and laws of the church prevented. "Did he ever give Mrs. jjeers such advice?" Schenck asked. "He did not. In the fall of 1907 they moved from New Washington to Republic, the minister said, where he had been stationed. He said later he noticed that his wife seemed to be troubled, although she had seemed very happy while they lived at Republic at first. They talked over a separation agree ment, and decided .upon what the agreement should comprise, and went to Tiffin to see an attorney to have the agreement drawn in legal form. "Did you try to dissuade your wife from taking the step?" "Yea," "What did you say?" persisted Schenck. "I said, Wife, do you think this has to be?' " The minister's lips quivered and the tears sprang into his eyes as he spoke. "What did she say?" "She said, I don't see any other way.' " He said they talked over the agree ment they had decided upon calmly, and that there was no hard feeling. After dinner they went to the office of the attorney. "I held back because I was very re luctant to make our errand known," he said in answer to a question. "Did you want to go ahead with the agreement, or did you want to take your wife back home?" was asked. Wanted to Take Her Back Home. - The tears again sprung into the preacher's eyes and he answered with difficulty, "I wanted to take her back home." The witness said he suggested that they go to an attorney he knew, Cal vin D. Spitler, but his wife said she wanted to go to Harry Black, and they went to Black's office. He said he knew then that Black was a Catholic "What did Black say?" asked Schenck. "He said, "Why don't you give her the privilege of her church and per mit her to raise your children?" "I said I didn't feel like doing that. I called attention to bottles of water that had been around our home, call ed 'holy water' and said I couldn't believe it was any more than ordin ary water. "Mr. Black then flew into a rage and opened the folding doors and pushed me out of his office to the door of the outer room. He Bald. 'Get out of my office, I don't want you here.' I said, 'Let me get my coat and hat." He gave me my coat and hat and I walked out. My wife followed. I heard him say to her, 'He's your hus band, you'd better follow him.' " "Did you quarrel with your wife in Black's presence?" "I did not." "Did you say the pope was the anti Christ and that the priests were mas ters of the nuns?" "I did not." "Did you say anything that could be tortured into such a thing?" "I did not." "Then that part of Mr. Black's testi mony is false?" "It is absolutely false." The minister said he then went to the office of Attorney Spitler and there the agreement was drawn and signed by both. "Did you use any sort of force or coercion in securing the signature of your wife to the agreement?" Schenck asked. "I did not." "Were you even then anxious to abandon your planned separation and go back and live together?" "Yes." "Did Black advise you to go home and care for your children?" "He did not." "Did you use any profanity in Black's office?'' "I did not." He said they returned home and re mained at Republic until the following week when he" took her to Tiffin and placed her on the through train for Nebraska, where she went to visit her poeple. "I wanted her to come back home, be my wife and live with me," he said, in answer to questions. The Reconciliation at Tiffin. He says he next found her, through a letter written to him by a friend of her, scrubbing the floor of a restau rant at Tiffin on July 16, the same year. He said when he found her she fell into his arms and they wept to gether. He says he learned that his wife had told hr friend. Mrs. Brown, that she could not go back to him be cause "I've left him and disgraced him." Upon his finding her he gave up his ministry and moved to his farm, taking her with him. At the same time a suit for divorce institut ed against him had been dismissed by agreement. "Is there any truth in' statements that your wife promised to go back and live with you if you promised not to abuse her?" "There is not." "Is there any truth in the statements that your wife said at any time that somewhere, sometime, somehow it would be found that you had killed her?' "It is absolutely false." After they went to the farm, he said, two more children were born, Charles, who is now four and one-half years old, and Alice, who is now three years old. The first child was Paul, now eight years old. He gave up his ministry, he said, in the fall of 1908 and did not enter it again until he came to Kansas a year ago. He denied that he had ever made any objection to his wife attend ing her own church whenever she liked, and declared that sometimes he went with ' her to such services. Went to Catholic Church With Her. In the ispring and winter of 1912, he said, she became very nervous and nearly broken down, and they decided to make a change for the sake of her health. They finally decided upon Kan sas, and left for Kansas City March 20. 1912. At Kansas City she went to the Catholic church Sunday morning while they were there and he attend ed the Methodist conference, he said, and then, because she said, "This is my day. I am going out with you on your work and may not have another opportunity of attending church. I'd like to have you go with me tonight," he went to the Catholic church with her. At Wakarusa she became president of the Ladies' Aid society, led the Ep worth League a couple of times, led in prayer and helped him conduct the prayer meetings, he said, and entered heartily into his work. He was preach ing at Berry Creek. Linn Creek near Berryton, and at Wakarusa. Urged Her yot to Leave Home. About six weeks before she left him (Continued on Page Two.)

The Quarrel, Attack and the Deadly Sequel. "Well, Laura, if you can't go horn with me and live with me I'll do the fair thing by you, I'll support you." This was what led to the last con versation between himself and his wife, according to the testimony of the Rev. W. L. Beers on the witness stand in his own behalf this afternoon, that ended in the tragic death of his wife. "I'll have to have Alice," he says his wife answered, referring to their youngest child. "What would you do with Alice?" the minister Bald he asked. "I'd put her in Voll Morgan's home," he says she answered. "Who is Voll Morgan V Interposed Schenck. "He Is a brother-in-law." "Is he a Catholic?" "His family is." "Where does he live?" "Near Lexington." "I'll never consent to hare Alice ta ken from our home," Beers says he answered. "I'll law till every cent Is gone before I'll give her up." "Did you want both your child and your wife?" was asked. "Yes, sir." "What did your wife do then?" "She sprang over me and on me. Sh struck me In the face with her fists, several times. She struck and scratched me. She struck as fast as she eould. I was doing nothing before that. I was taken entirely by surprise. She was screaming as she sprang over roe. The thought came to me that she was getting me, getting the best of me. I used both my hands to push her off. I put one hand against her left shoulder and the other over her mouth and pushed her off. I think the fingers of the hand over her mouth slipped Into her mouth. I didn't mean that they should." Thus, answering questions, and in a broken, pathetic voice, shaken with sohs. the minister told for the first time his own story of the tragedy that ended in the death of his wife. "Did you Intentionally place your fingers in her mouth?" "I did not." "Did you push her teeth down her throat ?" "No, sir." "Did you Intend to Injure her?" "No, sir, I did not." "Did you at that time still want her to come back and live with you as your wife?" "Yes, with all mv heart." NOW A FREE MAN Wisconsin Prisoner 37 Tears Behind the Bars.
