"I killed her because I loved her and she wouldn't marry me as she promised. I love her still and am ready to die for my act because I want to go to her."

"We had planned to be married to day," he said. "At the last moment Frieda interposed objections and I pro posed that we lake an automobile ride to some quiet spot where we could talk things over. Reaching a lonely spot I started pleading with her to marry me at once. "She remained obdurate and told me that she was expecting to become a mother and that she had decided to undergo a surgical operation rather than marry me. That made me mad. I lost my head and almost before I knew it, I had snatched a revolver which was kept in the machine as pro tection against highway men And shot her through the head. I believe she died almost instantly. "For nearly two hours I drove with Frieda lying beside me. Then it dawned on me what a horrible deed I had done. I decided the best thing to do was to bring the body to the police station and surrender." New, who is 30 years of age, is a graduate of an Indian military acade my.

Titanic Dirigible, After Day Of Rough Going, Nears Montauk Point-Will Land This Morning Last Leg of Trans-Atlantic x Difficulties and Navigators Are Obliged to Sound Repeated Calls for Help Threatening Storms Add to Troubles of Crew Proceed Slowly Toward Boston Republican A. P. Leased Wire WASHINGTON, July 6. At 1:29 a. m. Sunday, the navy communi cation service received the fol lowing direct from the vessel: "Will land Montauk Point. Re port time later." NEW TORK, July 5 The British dirigible R-34, en route from Scotland to the United States, was heading for Boston tonight where she will re plenish her fust diminishing supplies of hydrogen and gasoline before complet ing her scheduled trip to Mineola, New York. Is Hard Driven After a day of buffeting by high winds, lost for a part of the time in a dense fog, and driven out of her course to avoid a severe electrical storm, the R-34 reported herself at 11:30 p. m. nearlng Boston harbor and flying over the water. At 11:30 o'clock the following mes sage was picked up by the radio sta tion at Halifax, N. S., and relayed to the United States: Makes Slow Time "Position of R-34 at :02;56 G. M. T. 67.30 west, 43.20 north. Course south west by south magnetic. Twenty-five knots. Flying 1,500 feet." This position is approximately 170 northeast of Boston and at her pres ent rate of speed the dirigible should reach Boston about 6 a. m. If no great delay is experienced in obtaining hydrogen and fuel and bar ring a mishap in landing, the R-34 should reach Mineola tomorrow after noon. The navy radio broadcasted a message to all cities and towns north of Boston requesting that they be on the alert to give aid to the R-34 in case of an enforced landing. It was said that about 500 persons would be required to bring the big ship to rest. Destroyers to Aid American warships were rushing at top speed up the Maine coast in an swer to wireless calls from the giant airship to the navy department at Washington. After a long fight with fogs and contrary winds, the com mander of the dirigible flashed a mes sage that his petrol supply was falling rapidly and that assistance might be needed. . ? -.-.-. ' in answer. ht a' Amerkan naVal au thorities ordered ihe ec" .erted yacht U. S. S. S. Satilla, the nearest avail able vessel, to start for Machiaa Bay, Maine. Scarcely had theyacht cleared when she was followed by the subma rine chaser 407 from Bar Harbor and shortly afterward the United States destroyer Stevens steamed out of Bos ton harbor under forced draught. From St. Johns a cordon of British tugs was thrown out and in the stormy Bay of Fundy the French cruiser Som me answered the call starting south in an effort to cross the path of the air ship. All day long every wireless station from the northern coast of New Foundland to the mouth of the Hudson, was manned by eager listeners and watchers, who strained every eye and ear for sight or signal of the traveler of the skies, but only once did she emerge enough from the mists to be recognized. This glimpse was caught from the little Noca Scotian town of Parrsboro, 35 miles west of Halifax, the town at which the Handley-Page biplane, in flight from Harbor Grace, N. F., to Mineola, N. Y., made a forced landing early this morning. The mam moth airship passed directly over the lighthouse of the Port at 2:15 this afternoon. When first sighted she appeared to be down by the head, but before she passed out of sight had apparently righted herself and was proceeding on an even keel. Sailor watchers esti mated that she was making about 25 knots an hour- In Trouble The first intimation of possible trouble was contained in a wireless message intercepted at 11 a. m., and ad dressed to the British Admiralty, in which Major Scott, commander of the dirigible, reported that his fuel was getting low. Three previous messages, giving position, concluded with a cheery "all well." Five minutes after the message to the Admiralty, Commander Zachary Lansdowne, United States Navy, in vited to take part in the flight as a courtesy to the American government, sent a query to the navy department on behalf of Major Scott, asking if a destroyer could proceed to the Bay of Fundy "if required." In less than three hours, another message asked Wash ington if destroyers were coming, and two hours later a more urgent appeal flashed to the navy department asked that destroyers meet the super-Zeppelin "at the earliest possible moment." Earlier in the day wireless experts had expressed the opinion that some thing had gone wrong with the R-3.4 re ceiving wireless apparatus, and this opinion was confirmed by the apparent diriicuity m communicating to the air ship word that the American destroy ers -were doing everything in their power to render the assistance asked for. 1 Radio Is Damaged MINEOLA, N. Y., July 6. -A wireless message from the R-34 relayed here from Boston indicated the high power radio set was out of commission. It lead: "High power off except on half-kilowatt set-" Officers feared this mishap might make it difficult for naval craft to lo cate the dirigible in the dark. Captain C T. Craven, director of American naval aviation here, is leav ing tonight for Boston in case the dirigible is forced to land at Chatham. Make Landing Arrangements Captain Craven was accompanied by Major Hugh Fuller, R. A- F., who had charge of arrangements for the land ing here. Two other American naval officers also were in the party. It was stated that the entire British contingent here may leave for Boston in the morning in the event it appears possible for the R-34 to make that city. British officers said , that three courses were open to the commander of the R-34 in the event -lia rn (. pietely -out ot fun ' Flight Develops Unexpected "good" landing in an open field, drop an anchor into a tree and remain aloft, or in the event trouble came while over water could drop a sea-anchor, which would cut down the airship's drift by two-thirds. Ready for Emergency WASHLNGTON, July , 5. Contact with the British dirigible, R-34, whose calls for help continued to grow more urgent all day as she neared the finish of her trans-Atlantic journey only to find gasoline and sustaining hydrogen gas were exhausted, was established tonight at 11:40 by the destroyer Ban croft of the United States navy. The Bancroft at that hour, according to messages which reached the navy de partment, was trailing the dirigible as it proceeded southwest across the Gulf of Maine. The R-34 still was under her own power. Naval observers said the destroyer probably would stand by the dirigible until daylight, calling the Stevens to her assistance. No attempt to take the air ship in tow or to refuel would be possible until then, it was said. If the vessel has gas and fuel enough to sustain derself until she can reach Bos ton, it is expected that no attempt will be made to resupply her at sea. . Fuel Supply Low A message from the Bancroft to the ommandant of the first naval dis trict, forwarded to the navy depart ment at 12:30 a. m. Sunday, indicated that the R-34's fuel supply will hold out until the dirigible reaches Chat ham, Mass. The message reads as follows: "Position 42.51 north, 68.04 west. Heading for Chatham. Speed 23 or 24 knots. R-34 thinks fuel will hold out." Another message, evidently sent from the Bancroft to the R-34 and in tercepted by Otter Cliff radio station, said: "We see you are heading for Chat ham. Course 230 true. Speed 23 knots. Keep me informed of your movements." The new positions of the R-34, as given in the Bancroft's dispatch, shows that the dirigible is making steady progress toward Boston and was at the time the dispatch was filed, about 115 miles from its objective. At the rate the R-34 is traveling it -should cover the distance In five hours, which weald bring -it (BVer -Chatham Between S and o'clock Sunday. Orders wre tent late toaight to the commandant of 4he first, tiatriet at Boston "to get out everything available immediately," in an effort to render assistance to the dirigible. , Destroyers Aid in Search WASHINGTON, July 5. Available naval vessels at the Boston navy yard put to sea tonight in an effort to get into touch with the R-34. The message from the R-34 asking for help and saying she was making for Boston, was broadcasted tonight by the navy department to all vessels in the vicinity of the Bay of Fundy. The orders sent by Rear Admiral Benson, chief of naval operations, and acting secretary of the navy, said: "Communicate with all stations along the Maine coast. Get out everything available immediately and get in touch with and keep in touch with R-34. Render every assistance possible. Keep department informed of action."

Fight promoters connected with a locai sporting club today wired Jack Demp sey, the new heavyweight champion, guaranteeing him $30,000 for an eight ro""l bout wlUi, Willie Meehan here m FUTURE MILITARY POLICY OF U. 5. HAI.DS OF CONGRESS Speedy Passage of Army Re organization Bill Is Prob able Say Experts Action Would Prevent Demorali zation of Present System WASHINGTON, July 5. The ques tion of a permanent policy probably will be forced before the present session of congress by Secretary Baker's order ordering the army to 233,000 officers and men by September 30th. Military experts here believe only speedy yassage of the army reorgani zation bill will prevent demoralization of ithe military establishment. The recent army bill makes mandatory the continuance of the four new staff corps, chemical warfare, motor tran sport, tank and air service none of which was provided for in the national defense act. Officers and men must be drawn from the line and from the regular staff personnel to provide the necessary overhead for these branches. "A return to the status of 1908," was the prediction of one officer concern ing the defects. In that year com panies could muster only 35 men and regiments frequently were under one major and one captain. "The general staff already is at work on some program which will come within authorized expenditures and yet permit the retention of a skeleton establishment which may be expanded for war." Primary troop requirements which must he met include: Garrisons for the Philippines, Hawaian and Panama canal conserv atively figured at 50,000 men; a guard for the southern border, now main tained at 30,000; a force of 80,000 on the Rhine and for the time being at least 8,000 men for Siberia, These total 96,000 officers and men and do not take into consideration the hundreds of small garrisons needed at home army posts, which, is .estimated at' 30,400 with a further addition far the coast defenses.

FISHfRECEiPTS EXCEED THE HIIU TOLEDO, July 5 Although official accounting has not been completed, Tex Rickard, promoter of the heavy weight championship contest between Jess Willard and Jack Dempsey, esti mated tonight that the gate receipts would total between $500,000 and $600, 000. Revenue agents are assisting in checking up the receipts to determine the amount of war tax due the govern ment. Basing the receipts on $600,000. the government will receive approxi mately $54,600, while approximately $42,000 will be turned over to Toledo's charity fund. The city.- under the agreement with Promoter Rickard. is to receive seven per cent of the gross receipts. Rickard already has paid $30,000 to this fund. Mayor Schreiber plans to use this money in sending orphans and children of Toledo's poor families on vacation trips to Michigan. He also plans to devote a part of the money to endow beds for the poor in hospitals. Dempsey left tonight for Cincinnati to, open a theatrical engagement there tomorrow. He is to receive $7,000 a week. Willard spent the day resting quietly at his temporary home in company with his wife and a few friends. "There is little to add to what is al ready known," the defeated champion said. "After that first hard swing to the jaw in the first round Dempsey came in so fast that I never had a chance to clear my head and square away for a better offense or defense. I was fighting in a daze- This is no attempt to alibi my defeat or take credit from Dempsey, who is a fast, clever, hard-hitting opponent, ranking with the best of the heavyweights. Now I am through with boxing and expect to be just plain Jess Willard. I hope, however, that the public will remember me as a boxer who always tried to give his best in the ring and did his share to keep the boxing game above suspicion." . Efforts were being made today to obtain permission from proper authori ties for the exhibition of the moving pictures of the fight in the soldier camps and hospitals wnere wounded overseas fighters are recuperating.

P. LeasdWire WASHINGTON, July S Reported attempts by the Mexican government to purchase the support of American newspapers for spreading Mexican propaganda, in connection with recent defense of Mexican policy toward American oil operators, issued by Gen eral Candido Aguilar. son-in-law of President Carranza, have been called to the attention of the state depart ment. TJue situation is being watched by officials here. The Monterey, Mex ico organ of the Carranza administra tion, first to call public attention to it, said in duscussing the advisability of a propaganda program in the United States: "Oar chancellory should know all the details of this grave question, should sound all opinions and direct an active press campaign in the United States; this last is of the most im portance. No one thousand or one hundred thousand, but a million pesos, if it is necessary, should be spent in purchasing Yankee newspapers (there are those who will not refuse the busi ness) so that they will defend us and in subsidizing writers of some prestige who will translate the arguments which our own chancellory will give them. It is necessary to prepare in the very bosom of the United States a great part of public opinion in our favor, taking advantage in order to do this of the political divisions be tween democrats and republicans." General Aguilar, just before he sailed from Europe said that "the only order issued has been that the Mexican law be enforced." - It was pointed out here that General Aguilar must have referred to Article 27 of the Mexican constitution and the decrees of President Carranza to make effective that law. lai official circles it was said this law declared: "In the nation is vested legal owner ship of petroleum," and only Mexicans by birth or naturalization have the right to acquire ownership in lands or to obtain franchises to develop mineral fuels in the republic of Mexico." U. S JfilJSTRIES TO ; I IN REBUILDING EVASTATED EUROPE Republican A. P. Leased Wire NEW YORK, July 5. The actual condition of clearing house banks and trust companies for the week (five days) shows that they hold $6,433,700 reserve in excess of legal require ments. This is a decrease of $57,643, 430 from last week. With peace a reality the financial community settled down this week to more earnest consideration cf the im portant role which the United States must inevitably play in the great era of reconstruction and expansion. That this country's finished indus trial products are to figure actively ir, immediate rebuilding o the devastated sections of Europe was shown by the placing of orders and contracts run ning into hundreds of millions of dol lars. Quite apart from this condition lead ing domestic mills are reported to be running at 23 per cent increased pro duction over June and fully 50 per cent increase over the preceding month. Continued demand for principal commodities was seen in the main tenance of prices, but the markets as a whole were quieter because of the holidays and the approaching new fis cal year. xne siock market itself was onlv temporarily affected by the with drawal of funds to meet July 1 inter est and dividend payments, call loans falling back to normal after having again soared to 15 per cent. Little in vestment buying followed the release of mid-year money, but speculative shares made up the better part of their recent set-back and in several im portant cases new high records were made. Further proof of the country's abso lute supremacy as to the world's out standing creditor nation was furnished by additional heavy exports of gold and the Erratic course of foreign ex change, the rate on London falling al most to the lowest quotations in four years.
