Motion to Rescind

Snenal Cable Deepatch to The Srx.
Lonpon. Nov. 13. Serious dlsordir
was occasioned In the House of Com
mons to-day when Premier Asqulth'i
resolution to rescind the decision of th
House on Monday In ndoptlng a hostile
amendment to the Irish home rule bill
whi brought up for discussion. To re
store order was an utter Impossibility
and a n consequence the session wae
adjourned until to-morrow.
Before .Mr. Asqulth moved his rosolu,
tlon to rescind the amendment pro
posed by Sir Frederick Banbury, a
Unionist, and passed by the Opposition
on .Monday by a "snnp" division, lionar
Law. the Unionist leader In the House,
asked whether there was a precedent
for such a resolution. The Speaker In
reply said that he had searched tho
records and had found no precedent
for rescinding a decision of the House
reached during the passage of n bill.
However, the resolution of the paper
was In order, but without precedent.
Premier Asqulth then rose to move
his resolution. Ho admitted that the
amendment which he wanted rescinded
was of a vital and far reaching char
acter, and If allowed to stand the Gov
ernment would be unable to proceed
further with the home rule bill. The
Premier then moved the resolution,
which Is to the effect "that the de
cision of the House on the amendment
moved by Sir Frederick Banbury,
whereby It was proposed to Insert cer
tain words In the government of Ire
land (money) resolution be rescinded,
notwithstanding anything In any stand
ing order In this House."
Immediately 'Bonnr Uiw moved the
adjournment of the House and tho
motion for the adjournment was put to
r. rote nnd defeated by 327 to 218, this
indicating thnt the Liberal coalition
ws present In full force.
Tho chamber was In a continuous up
roar after the two party leaders had
hpoken nnd the Spcnker suspen'.d Sir
William Bull of the Unionist side for
yelling "traitor" at Premier Asqulth.
Blr Rufus lsaors, tho Attorncy-Gcn-
ui. attemntlnc to carry on the dlBcus-
eion. met with such disorder that his
words wre Inaudible nnd tne bpeauer
was forced to suspend the sitting for
an hour.
When the House reassembled Sir
i Rufus again attempted to speak and
was again met with abuse and shouted
down, while the Speaker vainly ap
pealed to the Opnosltlo- to allow the de
bate to proceed. In the ensuing din
Sir Edward Carson of Belfast and
"solemn covenant" fame cried out
"There will be no more business 'ever
in this House."
Tho Sneaker eventually rose and
n.ild it was aulte obvious that the Op
position was determined not to allow
discussion. "Therefore," he said, "I am
compelled to say that a state of grave
disorder has arisen, and under tho
Handing orders I must adjourn the
House until to-morrow."
As the Government Ministers left
the House the rank and file of the
Opposition swarmed across the chamber
floor, shouting tauntB and some throw
ing paper cones nnd balls at them.
The Liberals gathered around Premier
Asqulth to protect him, as they feared
xlolcnce. Fierce Imprecations were ex
changed by individual Unionists and
Liberals, tho eyes of many on both
aides blazing with passion as they
screamed at one unother. It was a
scene worthy of the Hungarian Parlta-mi-nt
Suddenly an unknown Unionist
matched from a table a small yellow
bound volume of Parliamentary pro
cedure from which the Speaker had
quoted. The Unionist hurled the
olume and It struck Winston Churchill,
tli" First Lord of the Admiralty, on the
left cheek The First Iord winced me
chanically, but Instantly faced about,
pate with anger, and his flashing' eyes
swept the. ranks of .the taunters to see
who threw tho book. He then made a
hasn dash forward as If to attack his
John William Gulland and Sir Maurice
Levy, both Government supporters, who
were nearest to Mr. Churchill, laid hold
f the Minister, nnd other Liberals
Joined them, attempting to persuade
the Kirs' Lord from going further. Mr,
Churchill yielded. He smiled, evidently
having quickly realized how the dignity
, : his position would suffer by scrap
ping like a schoolboy with an 111 man
nered assailant, and he passed out of
th lobby,
Thj evidence In connection with the
"sa it, Including the small book, was
collected by the officials of the House
omo tlmo after the Incident and tt will
be puhmitted to the Speaker, who Is not
likely to treat the offender lightly. John
Ksmonde nnd Matthew Keating, both
Irish Nationalists, who were near the
scene, say that the mat. who -threw the
book was Itonald McNeill, a member of
the Opposition. ,
They believe that he aimed at Mr.
Churchill and not at random. The First
Lord was merely stung, the book being
smaii to injure mm. ,.
Thero Is every Indication that the
torm will burst again t-awrrw,.

bllrnrlly In departing from the
nlzcd forms of procedure: therefore thev
nre. Jiistlfled In preventing tlio continu-
inco of Parliamentary huslnesa under
tho present conditions. They declnro
thnt Mr. Asquith's motion Imnerlls the
very existence of Parliament.
I ho Government Is fully ware of
tlm contention of the Opposition and
Its determination, but up to the pres
ent the Ministers nro resolved to put
Premier Asquith's motion ngnln to-mor-row
and facp the storm, tt Is probable,
however, thnt Mr. Asqulth will conf-r
with his colleagues In the forenoon to
morrow and they may decldo upon an
other course.
Tho Llber.it say 'Hint two romdlrs

diately the debate Is made Impossible,
and carry resolutions by mechanical

Rosenthal Loses Control of Cur
and It Backs Over 150
Foot Irop.
Mrs. Ruth Frlch Reld, 27 years old,
of 276 Clinton avenue, Brooklyn, was
killed last night In an automobile wreck
on Snake Hill, a continuation of High
land Boulevard, East New York. Three
young men In the machine escaped serl
ous Injury. One of them ran away and
the. other two were arrested, charged
with homicide and later one was held
for grand larocny In connection with the
disappearance of a chamois bag contain
Ing $5,000 worth of Jewelry from tne
dead woman's person.
Mrs. lteld's husband, Andrew Reld, Is
said to be a well to do wholesale con
The automobile was owned and driven
by Michael Rosenthal, a young man
who says he lives at 79 Grand strectf
Brooklyn, but refuses to say anything
more about himself. Ills companion is
James ltorkc of 1U3 Hancock street
Rosenthal had had the machine! about
two weeks. Last night he picked up
Rorke at Broadway nnd Hnlsey street
and later Mrs. Reld got Into the car
downtown In Brooklyn. There was
third man In the party whose name
the police do not know.
Tho party went out Highland Boule
vard In the direction of Cypress Hills,
When Rosenthal got to Snake Hill, the
scenesof many automobile accidents, ne
became nervous. Half way up the hill
where the road cuts a letter "8," ho
decided to turn about.
He reversed and the car backed over
the edge of the road and began a long
descent, half rolling, half falling over
the precipitous and broken slope that
fell off at that point. It was a drop of
about one hundred and fifty feet.
The wrecked car stood on Its side and
pinned under one corner was Mrs.
Held's body. Her back had been broken
against a rock. Rorke had a cut Hp
and Rosenthal was not hurt.
The first known of tho accident was
when some one, supposedly the third
man of the party, called the home of
Mrs. . Reld's parents, the Frlchs, on
West Seventh stn-et. Coney Island, nnd
told of the accident. Two sisters of
Mrs. Reld, Mrs. Susan 'Word and Miss
Mabel Frlch, and the latter's fiance
went to Hast New York In a machine.
The pollre had already heard of the
accident nnd had removed the woman's
body to the station. Mrs. Reld's sisters
asked concerning Jewelry which they
knew Mrs. Reld wore. They said she
had $6,000 worth. On the dead woman'i
fingers were two diamond, rings nnd In
her ears diamond pendants. A chamois
bag containing more Jewels could not
be found.
The police then searched the 'two
men. They say that on Rosenthal they
found a chamois bag that held 15,000
worth of diamond Jewelry. Roaentha
was then charged with grand larceny
He nnd Rorke had already been Booked
for homicide.

Gunmen to Charge Him
and Vallon With Actual
Counsel Indicates Dago
Frank Was Not Even
on Scene.
Jose's Story of Hiring Them to
Murder Gambler Is Not
The mailt points of the defence thnt
will be begun this morning on behalf
of Gyp the Blood. Whltey Lewis, Lefty
-oule and Dngo Frank, tho four ellg
gangsters now on trial before Justlcj
Golf for the actual killing of Herman
tosenthal, were outlined by Charles O.
Wahle, their chief counsel, In hi
penlng address to tho Jury last night
pon the completion of tho prosecu
tion's case against tho gunmen at 6:15
The defence, as outlined In Mr.
Wahlc's opening address, will be that
Hose, Webber, Schepps and Vallon
hnrged In front of the Metropole upon
Rosenthal, firing as they ran toward
him; that Webber and Vallon did the
actual kllllna of the gambler; that Gyp
the Blood, Whltey Lewis and Lefty
Louie had beed decoyed by Roso specifi
cally to within a few feet of tho Metro-
polo entranco while tho shooting was
going on, so that Roc, Webber, Vallon
and Schepps could ater try to fasten
the killing upon the four Zellg gang
sters; that Dago Frank was In an cle-
ated train far to the north of Forty-
third street on his way home at thy
time Rosenthal was killed, and that
tho four gangsters, not only terrified
mt comDlctely taken by surprise when
"Webber, Vallon, Rose and 8cheppa be
gan to fire at Rosenthal a few feet
away, turned anu nea 10 me suowuy
station In Times 8quarc as soon as the
shooting began.
(iaonen to Take Stand.
Mr. Wahle In hl opening address
last night atso explained In a general
way why Gyp. Lefty, Whltey and Dago
Frank disappeared for a long time after
the shooting. And to-day the gunmen,
so Mr. Wnhle said, will take the stand
In turn, with Whltey Lewis probably
the first to be called, and tell their
stories to prove the story outlined by
their counsel.
Mr. Wahle opened for the defence
after on all day session in which the
State's star witness. Jack Rose, was
In the witness chair during all of the
forenoon and the greater part of the
afternoon session. Rose's direct testi
mony against the gunmen lasted only
from 10:30 to 11:40 A." M., but Mr.
Wnhle then took the hairless gambler
In hand for a cross-examination that
lasted until 1:15 P. M., and after a re
cess then until 2:50 P. M. was con
tinued until 4:10 o'clock In the after
Rose's story that he had hired the
four defendants to kill Rosenthal re
mained unshaken.
Giovanni Stanlsh, the Austrian In
ventor, who identified Whltey Lewis
during tho Becker trial as one of the
gunmen he saw shooting at Rosenthal,
followed Rose and again Identified
Whltey positively and was Inclined to
point out Dago Frank 'also, but said
finally that he couldn t Identify the
Italian with certnlnty.
Mate'a Case Knded.
Drputy Police Commissioner George
Dougherty testified briefly after Stanlsh
had 'eft the chair, and William F. Rellly,
proprietor of the furnished room house
occupied by Dago Frank and the woman
he lived with, took the stand to estab
lish that he had seen the gunmen In his
house, and the State thereupon an
nounced that Its case against the gang
sters was complete.
Mr. Wahle, In rising to muke his open
ing address before an adjournment was
taken for the night, spoke from 6:15
o'clock until a few minutes to 7 o'clock
He pleaded with tho Jurors In his open
ing sentences for a more kindly feeling
toward his clients than probably they
had obtained from discussion and read
ing of the four gangsters.
Bad, bat .ot Marderera."
"They're bad. without a doubt, each
of them," cried Mr. Wahle, pointing to
his clients, who throughout the day had
recovered more than their usual gaycty
but now for the moment were silent and
solemnly attentive. "They are wicked,
without a doubt, each of them; but not
one of them Is of the kind that traffics
In murder,"
Hero tho gunmen's counsel briefly
went Into the respective lives of the
four defendants and dwelt upon their
youth, the good homo and school train
Ing some or them, especially LeTty
Louie, had had, and the confidential
positions held at times by Lefty and
Dago Frank. Later Gyp had become "a
cheat, a pool shark and was convicted
of stealing," said their defender. Whltey
"has a record" and Dago Frank has a
prison term against. him In his past, Mr,
Wahle admitted.
And the lawyer was about to pro
ceed then that It could be proved that
desplto these black marks they were not
the kind who could be hired for murder
when Justice a off Interrupted.
"All ot this Is improper," said the
Justice a bit Impatiently. "These things
cannot be proved here. These defend
ant are on trial for the crime of murder

Despite reports that Austria and Scr

that a general European war will be
averted, there arc persistent reports
that Russia is mobilizing in the
Kieff, Warsaw and Vilna districts.
A traveller from Kiel'f to-day says
that extensive military preparations
arc in progress there. Government
officials profess to be hopeful of a
peaceful solution of the Balkan prob
lem. Odessa reports that a despatch
from Kishineff, eighty-five miles from
the Black Sea port, states that active
mobilization is proceeding on both
sides of the Russo-Rumanian fron
tier. A similar despatch has been
received in Odessa from Kieff in
regard to the Russo-Austrian fron
tier. A despatch from Geneva says that
all the Austrian officers belonging
to the army reserve living in Switzer
land have received word from the
Austrian War Department to report
at Vienna on Monday. A special train
for transport is in readiness.
England has also caoled to the

Battles to Save Children Though
Wounded Policemen
End Fight.
In spite of his mother's heroic efforts
to save him Harry I'echer, 11 years old,
Is dying In the Harlem Hospital, fol
lowing an attack by his pVt bulldog
Hoy yesterday morning.
Hnrry lives In the basement of a
largo flat building at 8 West 119th
street, whero his mother, Mrs. Mary
I'echer, is the Janltrcss. Mrs. Techcr Is
suffering from several bites on the body.
Harry has bcen 111 for several weeks,
and when his mother went out to buy
some things for luncheon yesterday she
took with her four-yeur-old Anthony,
leaving Harry propped up In a chair,
with the bulldog for company.
Mrs. I'echer had scarcely reached the
street when she heard the barking of
the dog and shrill cries of "Mamma.
She ran back and found Harry
screaming on the floor, with Boy sav
agely attacking the little fellow's face.
As she ran In Harry cried: "Oh, mam
ma, take him away: take him away!"
As Mrs. I'echer went to the pros
trate boy the dog released his hold
on the boy's face and began to tear his
arms. Attack after attack followed as
the womnn tried to save her child, but
the dog would not bo beaten off.
Mrs. I'echer then seized a broom and
attacked the beast with It.
Hoy suddenly stopped tearing at
Harry and sprang at Mrs. I'echer. nnd
despite n heavy skirt nnd two petticoats
the dog burled his teeth In her right
With the dog hanging at her waist
Mrs. I'echer seized Hnrry with one arm
nnd Anthony In the other and stnrted
for the hull. When she had the two
children saftU' outside she went back
to the door of the room nnd entered
far enough to get tho dog's body inside.
Then she closed the door on Boy's Jaws,
nnd under the pressure the dog let go
and fell back Into the roofh.
In tho meantime Mrs. Pecher's
screnms had nrouscd the tenants In the
building nnd had drawn the attention of
Policeman McMahon of the East 126th
street stntlon, who was off duty nnd
wns passing the house.
McMahon blew his whistle and Po-
llccman Callum of the Lenox nvenue
station enme, closely followed by seven
other policemen from the same station.
A hurry call was sent In for nn am
bulance from the Harlem Hospital and
In the meantlmo efforts were made to
capture the dog.
The maddened nnlmal could be bhs
from tho street running about the dif
ferent rooms In the basement nnd none
of tho policemen cared to risk an en
counter with him. Accordingly they
all opened 11 ro on the dog, shooting
through tho glass of the windows, hut
failed to hit him.
Then tho policemen pulled down one
of the upper noshes and took closer aim.
Thirty more shots wero fired before
McMahon nnd Callum hit the dog and
wounded him. They then entered tho
basement nnd killed him.
Dr. Nott came with tho ambulance
from Harlem Hospital nnd removed

Pprctal Cable Despatch from Tub Hun Correspondent.
BrDArEST, Nov. 13.Ve have hern making history in tho last few days,
tind overy effort has been exerted by the Krcat Powers to inaure peace. While
I cannot Fend you the details, I nm morally certain that the danger of a general
European war, or hostilities that might lead to it, hat) been averted.
Tho danger of war between Austria and Scrvia Is practically eliminated.
Serviu, whose demands for an Adriatic port and the partition of Albania will
not be enforced by uny Goverment, is prcparing to yield to Austria, who is ready
to ullow her an outlet at Suloniea and possibly the commercial use of an Adriatio
port over the Bosnian railways.
Albania will become an autonomous principality under the nominal suzerainty
of the Sultan of Turkey.
Salonica will be internationalized.
The Servian army probably will abandon its march to Dttrazzo, on the
Bulgaria appears disposed to accord Rumania's unexpressed wish for Sllis

Jxndon, Nov. 14. The improved out
look in tho European crisis 'which was;
noted here during the lost two days Is.
emphasized this morning. It is impos
sible to give definite grounds for this
Improvement, but It seems chiefly, due
to tho report that Servla, acting"1fpon

The -Venea U'frner Tagblatt of Vienna
In a despatch from St. Petersburg says:
"In official circles here an Important
changotn the Russian attitude toward
Austro-Servlan relations is to be noticed.
M. Sazonoff, the Foreign Minister, has
Informed the Servian Minister to RusbU
not to take any direct attitude on the
Adriatic harbor question, but to leave
the matter to tho negotiations between
Austria nnd Servla, to which Russia will
afford her friendly support, whllo avoid
ing the tension in the relations between
Austria nnd Servla.
The Vienna correspondent of the
Dailu Telegraph says that reports have
reached court circles at Budapest from
a reliable quarter to the effect that k
change has taken place In tho views of
the Servian leading circles, which are
said to desire n friendly arrangement
with Austria. It Is added that the de
termination shown by Austria regard
ing her Interests has not passed unre
marked In Servla and that tho audi
ence which M. Passltch, tho Servian
Premier, had with King Peter nt Uskub
on November 12 appears to have influ
enced the situation favorably.
The Budapest correspondent of the
Ji'cuc Frete Pressc of Vienna encourages
this view. He states that although tho
question cannot yet be regarded too op
timistically, nevertheless the first signs
arn being shown by Servla of the some
of Its real Importance and that a desire
for peace begins to be evident. The
correspondent adds thati ono may be
prepared for n slow acceptance of the
situation because a long tlmo will be re
quired In Servla for the peaceful elim
ination of popular and psychological
Nevertheless confidence In the Im
provement Is felt. It Is founded rather
upon objective facts, such as that tho
Trlplo Alliance unitedly supports tho
dual monarchy, that the entente Powers
do not question the Justice of the Aus-tro-Hungarlan
demands, which affect
her Interests, and that the Balkan
League Is striving for a peaceful set
tlement, and, in a serious case probably
would leave Servla isolated: finally that
Austria Is far from desiring the hu
miliation of Servla, but rather wishes
to protect her own Justified economlo
Interest In the widest sense.
