r BERLIN (via Sayvillc wireless), Nov. 23 (United Press). Beaten
by the Turks, a British force 170,000 strong was thrown back from
Bagdad, it was learned to-day, in a battle which, though it occurred ssv
ml weeks ago, has just been reported here in detail.
The British troops, including Gmadiati, Australian and Indian con
fingents, had made a successful march from Egypt and were within less
than ten miles of Bagdad, threatening an important railroad terminal on
iwhich the Germanic allies were depending for the operation of an offen
sive later against the Britisli in Egypt by way 01 Sue,?.
The Turks, after several severe engagements, drove the British about
thirty miles back from Bagdad, insuring the city's safety.
The Bagdad ' impaign is believed lo have been part of a gigantic
Campaign by the allies, including a Kussian march across Persia.
The allies are trying to land enough troops on the Greek coast to
menace German railroad communications through Serbia and Bulgaria
This plan i baed. nttici.il -ay, on an underestimate of the Ger
manic allies" strength. They estimate that 1 1,000,000 Germans are now
in uniform, or that about mie citizen in every seven is a soldier.

HANS SCHMIDT MUST DIE
FOR MURDER OF GIRL
("ourt of Appeals, in Unanimous
Decision, Uphold1; Conviction
of l;prmer Priest.
A'l.llANV. N. V.. Nov. 23. Tho
linlgmeut convicting Hans Schmidt,
the former New York prli-st, of tho
murder of Anna Aiimullcr, was up
held by the Court of Appeals to-day.
Jud.'pi Cardozo v.-roto tho opinion,
III which all the either Judges e-on-curii'd.
Schmidt, who was performing the
nllleeH of a priest at St. Joseph's
Church, West Ono Hundred and
Twenty-tlfth Streot, Now York, was
unrated on Sept. IS, 1913, and con
fessed to tho pollco that ho had killed
Miss Altmullor, whose dismembered
body had been found In tho North
Itlver two weeks earlier.
Tho ilrst trial resultevl In a ills,
agreement of the Jury, but a ccond
trial ended In a conviction, Peb. ,
I'.'H. Utter Schmidt repudiated his
confession and the easo was carried
to tho Court of Appeals on the ground
that the coufi'slon wns false and that
Miss AiimulK-r'.i death was thei result
.if an Illegal operation.
Judge Cnrdozo's opinion holds that
no court has power to grant a now
trial upon that gmunel. "I'or," the
opinion states, "the statute glveve
power to grant a nw trial only
whi'rn It appears that tho evidence, If
priiilurcil, might have changed the
verdict If It has been dlsi overi'd since
the trial and ir It Is not cumulative
and the failure to produeo It was not
owing to want of diligence."
Tho opinion also states that
Schmidt was not convicted upun hW
plea of guilty.
