'Atlanta Society Appeals in
, , Vain for Cards of Ad-
ATLANTA, Ga., July 26. Atlanta' so
ciety, who, with the morbidly curious,
have been looking forward to ylewlng
the trial of Mrs. Daisy Ople Grace, on
a charge of assault with attempt .to kill
her hUBband, were disappointed tdday
. 'Wlien Judge L. B. Roan practically de
' elded to exclude, the public from his
court room. '
The cramped, dingy room where the
wife mustanswer to the charge of
shooting Eugene Grace only seats 123
persons. Thousands have already ap
plied to court officials for "cards of
admission." Judge Hoan frowned on a
plant to rent the, city auditorium and
force Mrs. Grace publicly to play her
part In the tragedy.
Counsel on both Bides agreed today
'that thq trial would toe of short dura
itlpn. It was expected that a Jury would
, tba obtained early on Monday, -when tho
lease Is set, and that a verdict would
tie returned by Tuesday evening. Tho
prosecutlon has twenty witnesses. It
was said that the defense would prob
ably not call any witnesses.
Eugene Grace was shot sometime dur
ing the night of March 5, while asleep
at his home. No one? heard the shot.
(Grace dragged himself to the telcphono
and managed to call the police late 'In
the day. Mrs. Grace, who left the bed
room early In the morning for a brief
trip out of town, was charged by her
husband with the shooting, although
he said he was shot whllo asleep. Mrs.
Grace denied the story, and hinted at
another woman In the case.
Grace hovered near death for weeks,
"and Is now paralyzed from his chest
'down, the bullet having lodged near his
plnal cord.

Owing to the reorganization of this corporation, we propose to sell a large quantity
of goods at big reductions.
To start with, we intend to sell all stock now on hand at such a deep cut in prices as
has not been seen in any special sale ever before held here. We are strengthening our sales
forces and fritting the delivery department in shape to handle the extra call upon it with
dispatch. ,.-..-
It is needless to add that the same high standard of quality and fair treatment which
has made this house notable for over 50 years will be maintained with jealous care.
To the thousands of patrons here and elsewhere, whose trade and friendship have en
abled us to build up the largest and most complete retail furniture establishment in Amer
ica, we desire to express our heartfelt thanks. We assure them, also, that our highest am
bition in the future, as in the past, will be to meet their wishes and to guarantee them
absolute and entire satisfaction in every dealing which they may have with this house.
We cordially invite the public at large to look through the 36 large salesrooms of
the store in order to get an idea of the immense stock of high grade goods we are carry
ing, and the very low prices at which they are being sold during this great Reorganization
Sale. W. B. MOSES & SONS.

Korean Situation Not Such
as Would Warrant Interfer
ence by United States.
Not a single complaint has been re
ceived at the State Department from
the American missionaries in Korea,
Who are said to be subjected to lndlgr
nltles and to face expulsion from that
oouritry by Japan. J
Reports that the American Missionary
Society r nbout to (lie a protest with
the State Department, have been re
ceived In Washington ever since the
first stories front Korea reached this
country. Up to date, however, no ac
tion has been taken.
For this reason tho State Department
has been very slow to Interfere with
Japan.' ,
Basis of Plot Theory.
Tho Christian missionaries In Korea
aro regarded as Immune' from Inter
ference, because Japan knows that the
various nations are propared to pro
'toct their representatives at all times.
It Is hinted that the-leaders In the
plot to assassinate Count Perauchl, gov
ernor general of Korea, .when they
found tho Japanese officers hot on their
trail, nocKca 10 tne missions for rerugo
under the cloak of Christianity.
These deeds of violence give Japan
reasonable' grounds for believing that
there is a definite terrorist movements

Korea, according to State Department
Ho Right to Interfere.
If the plotters prove to be Christian
converts that fact gives the United
States no grounds for Interference in
the attitude here.

Americans or their property In Korea,
the State Department will not Interfere
With tho Japanese probe of tho con
spiracy, oven though the Oriental tacr
tics of torture are used to wrest evi
dence from suspects. .
