NHW YORK, Aug. 4.
A mother's tovc. hot nnger of Latin blood
when scorned, wealth and romanco were
mingled today In the story of tho killing
of John Longer De Saullcs, former Yale
football captain, by his beautiful divorced
wife, a Chttinn heiress.
"I killed him and I am glad I did It. He
had refused to give mo my child."
This was the statement of Mrs. Blanca
Do Saulles, charged with murder, as she
talked with Deputy Sheriff Thorn In the
Nassau County Jail early today.
It was nt the summer homo of De Saullcs,
In Hempstead, L. I., last night, that tho ro
manco of tho athlete and the beautiful
Chilian enmo to Its end.
Mrs. do Saullcs hnd motored over from
her homo to Koslyn to demand her child
from Its father, Do Saullcs refused There
was it quarrel. "Then this Is the only
way," the mother declaicd and, with the
remark, drew a revolver. Do Kaulles drop
ped at tho first shot, struck in tho back.
Four nioro shots followed.
Mrs. do Saullcs was accompanied by her
maid. They lied from tho porch, hiding In
n hedge near the house.
De Saulles's father and sister hurried
from tho house. They stumbled over the
dying man. Do Saulles was rushed to tho
Nassau Hospital, where he died. Deputy
Sheriff Thorn found Mrs. de Saullcs crouch
ing In tho hedges. Her taxicab was still
standing In front of tho house.
Mrs do Saulles was first arraigned on an
nisault charge. Then came word that her
former husband was dead. Tho chargo wus
changed to murder.
"I am glad I did it, glad," she said.
Mrs. do Saulles. who is only twenty-thrco
years old, spent tho rest of tho night In
tho custody of the Jail matron.
Susanna Monteau. the maid, was held In
J1000. ball as A material witness.
Arthur D. do Saulles, father of the (lend
man ; Mrs. It. Degcner, his sister, and Mar
shall Ward, a Irlcnd, were near Tlien the
Tho fact that Mrs. De Saulles carried a
new revolver when she called on her di
vorced husband will weigh heavily against
her in her trial for murder, authorities de
clare. Charles Pettlnlus, a friend of De Saulles.
told the District Attorney the story of the
killing after having talked with all of tho
witnesses. He said that Do Saulles called
at his former wife's homo yesterday after
noon to remind her the boy was duo at his
house August 1, according to tho order of
tho divorce court, which directed the par
ents to have his custody alternate months.
Ho took the boy home In his nutomoblle.
Do Saulles wanted to have tho child as
his father. Major Arthur De Saulles, and ills
sister, Mrs. Degcner, were visiting him.
About 8:30 last night, while the family
was congregated In the reception room, the
mother burst in unannounced and stood in
tho midst of them. Her idinds were hidden
In the folds of her dress. Major Do Saulles
was on the lounge.
De Saulles smiled ns the woman entered.
He put out his hand and stepped close, say
ing, "Why, hello, Blanca."
A brief conversation ensued, tho man
standing smiling, the woman, her eyes !lcd
hungrily' on her child, not glancing at her
"It is no use," she said ; "you cannot have,
tho boy. I have ir6mo to sec about taking
"I'm sorry," replied Do Saulles, "but I
cannot dlbcuss that. I don't want to nrgue."
Ho gestured to end the talk and stepped
to an open French window, where ho stood
with his back to his former wife. Suddenly
Mrs. Do Saulles (lashed tho gun from her
dress and began shooting. Sho hesitated
after the first shot, then fired four more.
Mrs. Degcner ran from the stairs where sho
had been standing and seized the child, but
ho witnessed it all.
The.t according to Pettlnlus, Mrs. Do
"Well, it's too bad, but It had to bo done.
I suppose It's time to send for the police."
Mrs. Degcner told 'a similar story.
"The boy was sitting at tho foot of tho
stairs and Major De Saulles was on tho
couch when she entered. For n long time
nfter tho shooting she sat on the couch in
tho living room. Sho sat thero with her
head In her hands, gazing straight ahead. I
asked her why she had done this thing.
'"It had to bo done,' sho leplled. "I'm
glad. Where are the police.' "
Tho boy was taken to the home of Mrs.
August Hceker, another sister of tho dead
man, at Huntington, L. I., today. Tho body
of De Saulles will probably be sent to Beth
lehem, Pa., for burial.
Mrs. De Saulles's friends believe her tem
porarily deranged. Always high strung,
they say, sheo brooded over the unhappy
ending of her romance. Tho divorce man
date, sho frequently complained, brought her
tho alternative of sacrificing her child If she
returned to Chill, or of sacrificing her par
ents In that country If she remained here to
to be near the boy The decree nlso provided
that when little John became eight years
old his father should have absolute chargo
of his education, and tho perjod when the
boy should be in his mother's care was then
to be reduced from &ven months, as at
present, to three.
Do Saulles. whose family lived In South
Bethlehem, Pa., was one of the greatest
quarterbacks that ever piloted an Ell team.
He was captain of the Varsity In 1901.
In 1911 he went to hill, representing
the .South American Concessions Syndicate.
There ho met Scnorlta Blanca Lrrazurlz.
She was only seventeen years old. The
Krrazurlzcs went to Paris. De Saullcs
followed. They were married In December,
1911, in Paris.
The first Intimation or discord came in
1910. when Mrs, de Saulles filed suit for
divorce. She named a dancer. The decree
was granted. Mrs. do Saulles was granted
$300 a month alimony so long ns she did
not marry again. She sought complete
possession of little John and permission to
take him to London nnd Valparaiso. The
court ordered tho child must not bo taken
from the country during the war. while
there was danger in travel. De Saulles was
granted custody of tho child five months in
the year and the mother seven.
Aira ,in saulles claimed the boy should
have been turned over to her op tho first
of August It was to press this claim that
sho called at tho home of her former hus
band. FINDS WIFE DEAD FROM GAS

WASHINGTON, Aug. 4.
Tho biggest tinny fight In the history
of the service impends today.
It is between tho younger element and
the older. Before It Is bcttlcd, there Is a
distinct likelihood that Congress may tako
a hand In tho situation,
Tho fight has arisen over tho question
of promotion to the ran it of general. On
President Wilson's desk today Is a long
list nf colonels rejommended as brigadier
generals. The list was compiled by Major
General Tnsker II. Bliss, acting chief of
tho General Staff. The incrnKe ago of
the men thus suggested Is nboe fifty-nlnu
jours this In the face of a recommenda
tion by Major Gcncial Pershing that the
ngo limit for brigadier generals bo fixed
at about forty-tlM".
General Blls represents tho old army
school. He is a stiong belleser In promo
tion by senloilty In the most recent list
of promotions, certain colonels wcio over
looked by General Scott because ho feared
they might be ton old for haid bervlco in
France. It Is admitted some of these
elderly men have now been marked for
It Is understood that General Pershing's
recommendations. s made to tho War De
pattmeut. declared that . modern warfare
was no woik for an old man. In this Gen
eral Pershing had tho advice. It Is said, of
Field Marshal .loffrc, of the French army,
and of General Hals, of tho Biltlsh army.
Charges of favoritism hao been made in
connection with olllcers' training camps that
hao caused certain Senators and Repre
sentatives to make Inquiries It has been
-.uled by the War Department that previous
military training woum count ror only one
sixth In deciding whether a man was to be
commissioned In tho reserve and then de
tailed to active duty. Congress has been
collecting information on this subject which
is to be made tho subject of Inquiries
It Is an open secret here that the men
who will do most of the fighting are none
too well pleased with tho old-time general
Major General Hugh L. Scott will return
to this city soon. He Is expected to resume
his duties ns chief of staff, but his friends
are trying to have him promoted to tho rank
of lieutenant general and placed at tho head
of some Important command. Tho general
himself Is known to want actlvo service In
France. Ho Is due to retire shortly.
