MINEOLA. L. 1.. Jan. 13. -Furtherj
explanation to-day of Mme. Lebaudy's
reason for killing Jacques Lebaudy cn
couraged the belief that the grand jury
might return no indictment against
her. Mme. Lebaudy declared she shot
10 save her young daughter. Jacqueline,
from the insane desire of the girl's
District Atto.ney Charles R. Weeks,
prosecutor of the case, in which Marie
Augustine Lebaudy is charged with the
shooting of her millionaire husband at
their one-time beautiful country homc,'
The Lodge, at Westbury, last Saturday
night. said tlie unusual circumstances
of the case would not mean any de\ -
t;on from the usual legal procedure.
The Eontiment of thc en'ute country
side, because of the nature of the
charges againsl the eccentric father
and husband, favors an acquittal for
thc woman, who is a prisoner in her
homc and is suffering a general break
uown due to shock and a recent attack
of bronehitig.
Mrs. Lebaudy Tells
Since lhe shooting episodc occurred
Mme. Lebaudy has been too shocked
and too weak to speak. It was nol until
ic-day that her attorney, Mr. .Moore.
induccd her to tell her story. She said:
"During tbe week prior Mr. Lebaudy
threatencd several tiir.es to kill me r.nd
attempted to stab me with a hunting
knife. lie told mo I must be like
v.omen in Oriental countries, where the
mother, cn becoming unattractivc, must
permit the daughter to take her place. '
"Mr. Lebaudy threatened to kill mo
because of my indignant refusal and
intervention on behalf of-roy daughter.
1 then had chains put on thc bedroom
doors of the two rooms occupied by
roysclf and my daughter, and upon one
occn?io:i the chains preventcd Mr.
Lebaudy from obtaining entrancc.
"The state constabulary at Mineola
Were notified and promised prompt pro- I
teition. On Saturday Mr. Lebaudy
tel'-phoned to the Lodge that he was
ig out that night and used lan
'_..:< vhich warned me of his inten
tions, As soon a; he arrived, about 6
o'cli ck, he made a great noise about

PARIS. Jan. 13. The publication of
Foreign Minister Pichon's note refus?
ing recognition to tl - Bolsheviki has
attracted attention in thc Paris, press,
and throws a streng light upon the
varying attitudes of the Entente pow?
ers with regard to this vital question
of Russia and Bolshevism in Europe.
For tha moment apparentiy any like
iihood oi' differences between the pow?
ers has been allayed. The "Temps"
tttunigbt states that it has ovcry reason
to believe there will be no further dis?
cussion between the Allies upon tho
question raised by Pichon'a note.
"ln the daily informal discussions
which have taken place," the "Temps"
says, "the representatives of the gov?
ernments of the associated powers have
shown theniselv ss inciined to follow the
lines laid down by Pichon."
Agree on Solutions
As signilicant of tlie mutually con
ciliatory attitude at the conterence of
thi. icpiesentatives, the "Temps" adds
that tnis is only one instance ol a
simiiar kind.
*H is const?ntly happening," it says.
"that after having suggested different
methods thc various governments very
soo.i agree to adopt a solution pro
pos "1 by one of them."
'lhere is much curiosity here as to
how, in view oi the claborate prccau
tions taken by the Allies to sateguard
their diplomatic documents, the official
Socia :.-: journal, "Humaime, succeed
ad in obtaining a copy of Pichon's
note. ii was thc onlj newspaper to
publish it ycitsrday.
The object of thc Socialists in pub
lishing cne, note was, of course, to
embarrass tho government, as was evi
dent from thc heading printed over the
article: "The I'lanco-English Disugree

at length on tne Pichon note, and with
? ? xeeption of the Socialist journals
are absoiutely in agreement with the
?ouivv laKen :\ ti,.- foreign Minister.

The "Temps," on the whole, does not
regret tho publication.
"Af i r the abcminable revelations,"
it says, "which Scavenius (the-Danish
minister) brought. from Ru3sia, after
thc intervention of the Muscovite Bol?
sheviki in German riots and Radek's
speech outlining thc prospect of bting
