GIBSON MAY TAKE STAND IN DEFENSE Accused Lawyer Also Confident He Can Break Down i Case of State. GOSHEN, N. Y., Nov. 21. Tho fourth day of tho trial of Burton W. Gibson, accused of the murder of Mra. Rosa' M. Szabo, brought out more testimony by medical experts as to the manner of how Mrs. Szabo met her death. Dr. Arthur Masking and Dr. Otto Schultzo, of New York, testified that the woman had been strangled and that there was no evldenco of drowning. Like Dr. King, who had previously testified that Mrs. Szabo was mur dered, Dr. Hasklng described tho pressure necessary to cause death In the manner alleged by the prose cution. Testimony Corroborated. Ir. Hasklng's testimony was corrob orated by that of Dr. Schultzc. The story told by the three State experts was similar In every detail, each cor roborating the other and dovetalll'ig hit story along expert llne. It was stated by Attorney Ilobert El der for tho defenso that his expert wit nesses will be Dr. John J. O'Reilly, "f the University of St. Lawrence, and Dr. Msgrath, ot Boston, 'tooth or whom are experts In asphjxlatlcn cases. They will, contradict the State's ex perts. Is was said, nnd will declare that the conditions revealed by the autopsy are common to drowning. Says Story Is Clinched. , District Attorney Rogers declared when the trial was resumed that ho be lieved ho had established a cose that would be hard to break down, and said that the testimony of Drs. Schultzo und Masking would absolutely clinch the story told by Dr. King, who had sworn that Mrs. Szabo was strangled. Hope that the trial would be ended this week was dissipated today, when Justice Tompkins announced that ho would give the medical experts nil of the time desired for their direct and cross examination. Gibson Is Confident. Gibson and his wife seemed as cin " fldent as thoy were vosterdaj. Before tho trial thev said that they would be able, with their own medical experts, .to scow that It would hao been an ab solute Impossibility for a person to ha e strangled Mrs: Szabo as tho medical experts for the State havo testified, and fall to leave marks of violence on her throat. Gibson said that he expected to take the stand In bin own defense, but also said that thli hud not, bten fullv de cided, and he would do only what his counsel thought best.

Premier Pasitch of Servia was quoted today in a dis patch from Belgrade as denying that his government has yielded to Austria's demands concerning the Adriatic coast. It was said to have declared that the Servians still were determined to have a port. As the belief that Servia has given way to Austria's wishes prevailed at all the European capitals and rested on good authority, it was surmised here that the premier's denial was issued to satisfy the Servian jingoes and meant nothing. Between its fear of the war party at home and its realization of the hopelessness of defying Austria, unless it can get strong foreign support, it was said the civil gov ernment at Belgrade probably was having a hard time. The denial did, however, cause some uneasiness. CHRISTIANS REPORTED MASSACRED AS PEACE NEGOTIATIONS ARE BEGUN CONSTANTINOPLE. Nov. il.
