MRS. VON CLAUSEN TRIES TO
GET OUT OF JAIL ON BAIL
New York, Oct. 31. Mrs. Ida Von
Clausen, who threatened former
President Roosevelt and United
States officials with, a million-dollar
suit because she had Been denied pre
sentation at the court of the King
of Sweden, made application for bail
today from her cell in the Tombs,
where she is waiting trial for sending
a threatening letter. Bail was not
fixed and she remained in her cell.
"I'm the victim of Charles Strauss'
duplicity," she said, "and I'm going
to find out just what he means by
his treatment of me." Strauss is the
lawyer who caused her arrest for
promising to shoot him dead.
"I have no recollection of writing
the letter I am accused of sending
Strauss, though I may have done so.
At the time the letter was said to
have been sent I was in Rome dying
of a broken heart.
"The real milk of the cocoanut is
that my former husband wants me
in ,jail. He tried to keep me in an
insane asylum. Dead women tell no
tales and he is trying to have me put
away. I do not want to live for my
self, but for my adopted child."
THE MENDEL BEILIS CASE
Kiev, Russia, Oct. 31. Importance
attached to the medical testimony in
the trial of Mendel Beilis, charged
with "ritual murder," and the dis
putes amongst the experts, would
seem to indicate 'that they and not
the Jew were on trial. A list of formal
questions will be put to all of the
physicians after they have finished
their individual testimony.
In answer to the charge that the
replaced top on the skull of Andrew
Yushinsky was not from his skull,
but from another, Dr. Tutanoff of
Kiev University admitted that he
made the substitution for photo
graphic purposes and said it was in
significant. It never was established
whether there were 13 or 14 wounds
in the temple of Andrew. Experts for
tjhe prosecution-' contended there
were 13, their idea being that the awl
holes were meant for a cabalistic sigjj,
by the murderer. Other physicians
were sure there were 14 wounds.
