FIRST INTIMATION " THAT SHE HAD PART Defendant Soon to Become"' a MbtHeiv Will Be Testimony 4 " of .Physicians. ATLANTA, Ga., Aug. 1. A sensa tlon .was sprung In the Grace case today when the defense, In opening its case, declared that it would prove that EUgone H. qraco was Bhot by a 1 pistol in his own hands in a scuffle with his wife on a bed in their fash , lohable West Eleventh street home. This was the first intimation that ' Mrs. Grace, who is accused of shoot ing her husband, has given that she had any part in the nearly fatal affair. When the defense announced its list of fourteen witnesses, there were included two physicians and a 'trained nurse, who are expected to give testimony that Mrs. Grace will shortly becomo a mother. Denies State's Theory. A long" controversy was precipitated by Attorney Branch's bitter denuncia tion ot the' prosecution's course. He insisted that "every tjber of the State's case W rotten," and that their theory that -Grace waB shot during: the night T'waa utterly .untrue and wholly ridicu lous." f, . - '.Solicitor Dorsey objected to Branch's . criticisms, but Judge Roan permitted the, defense attorney to.contlnu.

Grace, Branch declared, was plotting to get all his wife's money, Part of this plot was to securea power .of at torney from his wjfe under authority of which he epuld have sold every bit or ner property, "That Is the only 'dlobollcal plot' In. this case' the attorney asserted, 'While this husband was traveling all over the country, stopping at fashion able hotels, Mrs. Grace was paying the bills.

"We will show you that it was Grace who wanted to take out life insurance be had an Idea It would give, him a standing In business, and would set neonle to remarking 'How rich he 1st Branch bitterly scored Grace, declar ing him "lazy and worthless," and al leging unfaithfulness to his wife. He depicted Mrs. urace in me roie or tne wife whp was so blinded by love for her husband that she signed away all of her property, given her as a sacred trust for her blind son by a former Barrlage.

WHITMAN PROMISES TO PROTECT WITNESS Testimony Independent of Con spirators' Confession Is Neces " sary In Becker Case. NEW YORK, Aug. 1. That the grand jury will be tflld the complete story of the actual murdor of Her man Rosenthal, gambler, by one who actively participated In "it, wasad mitted at.the district attorney's of fice this, afternoon. The latest to collapse is "Dago Frank" Clroflcl.

It was reported that if ho told all of his story that he would be permitted to plead to second degree murder and so escape the electric chair. His testimony would aid the district at torney In completing his case against the others accused. That Important developments In the case were expected was shown when John Hart, attorney for Becker, while in consultation with his client In the Tombs, was served with a subpoena calling him befpre the grand Jury forfn- toda'y to Interview' probably the' 'most Important witness In the entire Rosen thal murder consnlracr. He was Sam Schepps, who rode about all of the night Derore Kosentnai was siam wun jbck Rose and heard the bargaining with the expert gunmen. Schepps, Whitman has also been informed, knows more than any other one man about how police graft was collected in tho downtown section. The district attorney was hoping that he might be able to furnish Information that would ennbel the prosecution to get independent ovldence neccscsry to have Rose, Webber, and Vallon's stories admitted as evidence against Police Leutchant Becker. But "Dago" Frank's testlmonyy would I'Ot help the case against Becker. Un der the famous conspiracy decision of the Supreme Court of tho United States, the testimony of a co-conspirator must be corroborated completely from an In dependent source. Whitman believes that if he can show motive he will have the case against Becker. Under the famous conspiracy decision of tho fcjuprcrio Court of the United dtatea, the testi mony of u co-consplrator must be cor roborated completely from an lndepend ent source. Whitman bellevc.i that If he ran show motive lie will have thr additional evidence necessary to makr the story of tho other principals in tl- murder naterial, but ho is not certain, and will offer immunity to Schepps for evidence along this J .tne. First Plans Go Awry. Meanwhile Whitman was today fol lowing up the allegations of Rose. Webber, and Vallon that Becker had ordered them to murder Rosenthal ten days before he was actually killed, and that only the fact that the gunmen chosen to kill the gambler .discovered that they were being shadowed bv private detectives prevented the killing at that time. He will also try to traca the $1,000 which Vallon says he paid to the quartet who shot Rosenthal. Jacob Relsch, commonly known as Jack Sullivan, "king of the newsboys " was slated to "be arraigned before Cor oner Felnberg today. It -has been re ported that he intended making senso- iionai statements in open court, al though he has Insisted he knew nothing about the killing of Rosenthal. Sulli van rode uptown with Lleutenaat Becker shortly before the murder, and has been Identified as being on the scene at the time of the killing. Taken Before Grand Jury.

On this rostrum were seated the President and Senator Root. Tho only touch of color to the scene was the "Taft Notification Commit tee" emblazoned on the. broad ribbons worn on tho lapels of the committee men. The President turned over hi private offices as assembly rooms for the committee. The principal orna ment in the sanctum, it was noted smilingly Jiy some of them, is a big portalt of Theodore Roosevelt.

At ten mnutes after 11 o'clock, after the committee had been seated In the East Room, Mrs. Taft was led to a seat In front of the assemblage by Ma jor General Wood, followed by Mrs. Wood, Mrs. MacCllntock, her Intlma'e friends, and Mrs. Deekman "Winthrop, wife of tho Assistant Secretary of the Navy.

T OF ELECTORS TO REPUDIATE TAFT Attorneys In Kansas Case Argue Important Politi cal Issue. FATE OF PRIMARIES INVOLVED IN FIGHT Suit Filed Against Rooseveit Men Being Heard Before Supreme Court Justices.' NEW YORK, Aug. 1. Robed in their black gowns of office, Mahlon Pitney and Willis Van xeryanter, justices of the United States Su preme Court, sat in the court room in the Federal building here today to pas's on one of the most important political questions ever raised in the history of the nation. Involved was the legality of tho future action of Presidential electors in most of tho direct-primary States of tho United States. The extraordinary proceeding re sulted directly- from the action of the supreme court of Kansas declar ing that the names of eight Presi dential electors in that State should be placed on the official primary ballot in the Republican column, al though these men have openly stated that If they are elected they will not vote for Taft and Sherman, but will vote for Qolonel Roosevelt and his running mate when the Electoral College, assembles. " cCHief JdsticeAbsent. 'hVabc"tr1pe"cled Jhat:6hTef Jus tice' Whlto would lt in ihe case, but he failed to appear. Tho Taft forces "wore represented In the proceedings by Congressman M. E. Olmsted of Harris burg, Pa., and Richard R. Hite, of Topeka, Kan., while the Roosevelt men had their side of the case presented by L. W. Keppllnger, of Kansas City, and F. S. Jackson, of Topeka. When the two Justices settled back into big easy chairs Justice Pitney said that they were there to decide a petition for a writ of error on a ques tion with which he was not very fa irdllar, "Just explain this case to us now, Mr. Olmsted," he said. Olmsted started to read from a bulky printed brief. The two justices listened a few seconds, plainly impatient, and then Pitney broke in again.."14 "Oh, no! not that. Just telK us the merits of this contention in plain Eng lish. We want to get right at tho heart of it." . Refuse to Vote For Taft. Olmsted then stated that the action arose on a petition brought by twelve voters of Decatur and Jewell counties, Kan., In the Harvey county court. They sued for an Injunction prohibiting the placing on the primary ballot as Re publicans of Samuel A. Davis and seven others who had openly stated that they would never vote for Taft and Sherman. Olmsted recited the pro ceedings of the Republican national convention at Chicago, which he stated waa regular In every way, and which nominated Taft and Sherman as the candidates for President and Vice President. "There Is now a new party being formed," he said, "and it Is generally accepted that Thoodore Roosevelt will be the Presidential candidate of that party. ' These eight defendants openly assert that they will support Roosevelt.1' While Olmsted was explaining his case to the two Justices, Governor Btubbs,' of .Kansas, was one of the closest listeners, edging his chair over almost directly under the bench on which the two Justices were seated. Denies Fraud Ww Practiced. F. S. Jaakson, of Xopeka, for the Roosevelt forces, caused a sensation by saying: "Your honors, this case Involves more dynamite than any case that has ever come before the Supremo Court since tho days of the so-called reconstruction. It involves the right of States t gov ern themselves without the Interference of the Federal Judiciary. Matters in volved in this action are those that haVe plunged States Into war." Jackson declared that the allegation that fraud had been practiced by the Roosevelt electors Jn persuading Taft men to sign their petitions was almost too foolish to answer. "Why. everybody in Kansas," he ex claimed, ".knew exactly whore theso electors stood. They knew that they were Roosevelt men. When the peti DEFENDS RICH tions were circulated everyone knew that these men would never be for Taft. And anyhow the KrasaB law provides that where fraud In connection with primary petitions 1b alleged, these al legations must be made within three days. And the petitioners in this case failed to do so." Would Not Support Taft. "But can you say that these peti tioners knew within the time that you mention, three dayB, that theso men were not going to support tho nominee In question?" broke In Justice Van Devanter. , "Why, your honor,' replied Jackson, "the petitioners knew- all the time that these men were Roosevelt men. This was Just an ordinary business transac tion In everyday life The candidates circulated their petition and it was (Continued on Page Seven.) ATTORNEY ASKS JUDGE WRIGHT BE Francis T.
