WIDOW BARES HER
Georgians Are Stirred by Her
Tale of Grim Death, and
insanity Is Claimed.
MACON, Ob., DeJe. 28. Relative
and frlendi of Mr. Janes Klnf,
widow of one of the wealthiest1 farm
era In this section of the State, were
taking steps today to have Mrs. King
declared Insane In order that, she
may, escape the gallows, following her
confession that she forced Nicholas
Wilburn, a young farmer, to kill 'tier
"Wilburn confessed the crime, and
insisted, that It-was Instigated by
1 Mrs.' King, who bad promised to pay
him 12,000, the proceeds of an ln-
; surance policy on King's life, and
also to marry him. Mrs. King at first
denied the crime, but under cross
' examination by the sheriff and dls
' trlct attorney at last admitted her
.guilt ' 1
Pleads for Mercy.
Her confession followed a sensational
scene In the Jail office. Pressed to ad
St the truth of the Wilburn charge
the cried again and again that, "as Opd
vsts her judge," she was Innocent.
Finally she threw her hands In the air
and falling prone on the floor sobbed
"Ye, yes. yes! I did It, I did It; do
uu think Ood will forgive meT Aik
the people to have mercy on me, not for
uivself but for my children."
Litter when partially calmed Mrs.
lng made a complete confeulon which
Mas reduced to wilting and aworn to.
"iMtt March." she said. "Nick Wil
burn mid myaelf were sitting In my
dining room. Nick told me that he did
not have u friend In the world. I patted
him un the back and told him that I
would be lua friend.
"llud It not been for the $2,000 insur
ance nn would never havo plotted to
kill mv huabund. Mv first attempt was
with strychnine. Nick bought the poi
son and we put It In my husband's
whisky. When ho became alck he took
an emetic and recovered.
Tells of the Plot
"Then we plotted to shoot him. Nick
told mc that ho would catch htm out
hunting and kill him with his own gun,
Tlio day of the killing; Nick cams In
after Mr. King had been gone for about
an hour. I told him my husband hud
gone and that now was our time.
"lie .left and soon afterward he cams
back and told me that Jamea was dead.
1 sent Johnny Gordon and Frank Wil
burn to find mv husband. They came
back and aald that liSihad accidentally
killed himself... "
"This was on December IS when they
feund the body, but It was the day be
fore that he was killed. On December
17 Detective Moors came around and
then Nick told me that he was sus
pected of having; done the killing. I
told him to brace up. I didn't believe
he would give me away, and after he
did I waa determined to deny It all and
go to the gallows If I had to with a lie
on my lips. But now I have decided to
tell tile truth, as I could not meet my
Qod with such a He."
Mother of Six.
Mrs. King s thirty-five years old and
the mother of six children and had
been a leader In church affairs In Jones
county. Wilburn waa .ten yeara her
Junior. Because of threats of lynching
made by friends of King a guard has
been placed about the Jail here. The
feeling Is intense against both the man
and widow, although the members of
the woman's family, which la one of the
most prominent in this section of
Georgia, Is standing by her on the
ground that she was insane. They say
that since the birth of her last baby
she has been Irrational and they de
clare that Wilburn worked on her
Wilburn has made a complete confes
sion In which he tried to put all of the
blame on the woman alleging that she
rajoled and tempted him Into commit
ting the murder.
SALES OF SHOES
Aim to Fool Buyers Who Usually
Wait for , Midwinter
A plan to postpone the annual mid
winter sales of shoes until the mlddlo of
January was determined upon at a
meeting of the shoe dealers section of
the Retail Merchants Association last
night at the Chamber of Commercel It
was argued that many persons put off
bluing shoes In the hope that thcte
'sales would start the first of year, and
that the shoo men would lose money by
not postponing the sales two or three
The practice of glvlpg presents with
purchases came In for criticism at the
meeting, and It was agreed to address a
letter to the various shoe men, asking
each whether he will agree to discon
tinue the practice.
It was also derided to appoint a com
mtttee who should make an attempt to
x keep adveitlsements of shoes and shoe
stores fiee from fraud and misrepre
sentation. VOICES MADE HER

NAGEL MAY DECIDE
LIBEL OF GEORGE V
Fate of English Journalist Who Published "Marriage"
' , Story :May Rest With Secretary Mylius Is Fight-
If. libeling a king in a political
paper Involves moral turpitude, Bee
retary' Nagel, 'of the Department of
Commerce and Labor, will be called
upon to deport Edouard F. Mytlus, the
English Journsilst, ordered sent back
to England' upon his arrival In New
York ' last Sunday. A report on the
rehearing of the' case being held this

Board at Bills Island will be. In the

IStO Involved moral turpitude.
Went To' English Prison.
Mylius served a one-year sentence
In Englsnd, thus rendering him liable
to deportation from this country, ac
cording to the Special Inquiry Board's
first ruling, on the ground that he was
a convicted criminal. The first charge
against him waa for seditious libel In
circulating-copies of the Paris Libera
tor repeating, the story of the slteged
msrrlage of King George to a daugh
ter of Admiral Sir Michael Culmc
Seymour. The report had been current In Eng
land and had been printed In this
country. On the eve of Mylius' trial
the1 charge was changed to one of de
famatory libel, on which he was con
victed and sentenced.
. The delicate point In the entire situa
tion which may have to be decided by
Secretary Nagel Is: "Was Mylius' ar
ticle merely a political attack on mon
archical Institutions In an effort to
further the cause of republics, or did his
set constitute a crime Involving moral
While the Secretary hsa not consid

slon of opinion among his assistants
Some hold that tne storv
King wss malicious and did
conviction a subject for appll
cation of the deportation laws. Others
say that the affair Is merely political
that Mylius, under proper conditions
of free speech, would have been able
to print the story, and further
would not be charged with any
moral laxity. It Is pointed out that Myl
ius was of republican tendencies and

Old Statutes Used.
In Mylius trlsl In England the usual
proceduretwag'not followed. Ordinarily
the offended party has to appear per
sonally and deny the charges, but King
Ucorge did not enter s denlsl until after
sentence had been Imposed. The gov
ernment showed,' It Is claimed, that It
considered the crime as political and
an attack upon the monarchy, and It
resorted to two old statutes, used only
twice previously and bearing solely on
sedition. In convicting Mylius.
Upon his arrival here, Mylius wss
ordered deported but his appeal to Sec
retary Nagel acted as a stay and ob
tained for him a rehearing, if this
falls to grant him entrance to this
country, ho will ask Secretary Nagel
to act in his behalf.

The Political "Refugees' League and
the 'Free Speech League have taken up
the flfiht, and will exert every Influ
ence to have the secretary coincide
with their li.Mlcf that Mylius acted only
from righteous and Just motives in his
article on tho King.
Mllus, In discussing tho case, says:
"1 want to tinphailie the fact that
tho story of King aeorge'a marriage
had been published In England Itself
long before It waa printed In the Lib
erator. Modern Society, a weekly tour-
tin I. printed It. So did the chain of
journals Known as ttsynoids newspa
pers. There Is no doubt of the truth
of the story.
"In order to prove ttml the marriage
did not take place the prosecution pro
duced the marriage registers of all tho
churches In 'Malta.
"That was a perfectly foolish pro
ceeding, and was dona only to fool
the Jury and the people. The prosecu
tion , knew that Malta Is under the
canon law, wlil:h does not require mar
rfages to be registered. It was Queen
Mary, I have no doubt, who prompted
the suit against mc.
"My own motive) in circulating the
Issue of tho Liberator that contained
the marriage story waa entirely a politi
cal one. I am a republican and I am
striving to further the republican form
of government for all nations. In the
end England will have a republic. It

worst Engineer Commissioner we ever
had." Everybody laughed.
Mr. Stellwagen later objected to the
statement by Attorney Douglas thst
Commissioner Judson wss used by the
baJik president as a "go between" to
arrange for a meetlpg between Mr.
dtellwsgen and Congressman Burleson.
Holds Valuation Excessive.
Mr. Stellwagen was 'qulsed at length
regarding his reasons for suggesting to
the Commissioners thst sn Investigation
o fthe office of the superintendent of
Insurance and the First National and
Commercial companies should be had.
He aald he didn't believe the Commis
sioners had' seen the Ingham report,
boosting the apprslsement on the
Southern building, "until I celled atten
tion to it."
Ml. Stellwagen said he regarded the
12,000,000 valuation on the Southern
building, carried In tho Insurance su
perintendent's report, was "highly ex
ceasvo and worthy of n vesication."
Daring the testimony of Commissioner
Rudolph. Congressman Redfleld com
mented upon the fact that the Insur
ance report waa really a document pre
pared by subordinates In the Insurance
superintendent's office and was with
out comment on the part of Mr. Ing
ham himself. The Congressman ob
tained an admission from the Commls
slon that Mr. Ingham had been " ne
glectful" In this respect.
Congressman George, whose chief In
terest Is In real estate, asked Mr. Stell-wag-en
If he knew of a "real cstato
"I have never heard of one until It
was mentioned litre in the committee,"
said Mr. Stellwagen.
"Did It ever occur to you that vou
might be one of those referred to as a
member of the real estate ring."
Ho "Seal Estate Sine."
"I know of no such ring." aald Mr.
Stellwagen. "When t read the testi
mony of the hearing. 1 rather got the
Idea that some one was hlttlnr at mc."
Mr. George then gullied Mr. Stell
wagen at length regarding his real en
tate holdings, and his Interest In the
Thomas J. Fisher Company. He was
asked the value of the ground upon
which the Union Trust building stands.
Mr. Stellwagen said It probably waa
now $32 a foot, although It had been
purchased nvo years ago at M, and
was assessed at t-4.
"How much Is It underassessed now,"
asked Mr. George.
"Oil, perhaps, $2 a foot," was the re
Ply. Felt Action Public Duty.
Mr. Douglas, who began the cross
examination of Mr. Stellwagen. referred
sarcastically to ."your excitement when
oti saw the report of the superintend
ent of Insurance on the Southern build
Mr. btellwagen denied that ho became
excited, and Insisted that he called the
attention of the Commissioners to the
report merely as a matter of public duty
and not bocause of selfish Interests us a
property-holder In that vicinity.
Reverting to the Ina'ixural chairman
ship row, Mr. Easby-8inlth asked Mi.
Stellwagen If he had corrected his
statement to Mr. Burlcxon when ho
learned thnt Mr. Jordan hid severed
his conn.-ctlon In Jiilv with the First
Nntlonal I'lre Insurance Company.
"I don't need to mulie the correction.

Mr. Stcllwuricn, who ngaln denied th.it

er been exercised without starting a bit
ter fight, for obvious reasons.
But Mr. Dalsh believes that there la
special reason why the authority should
be exercised In this Instance. Congress'
n. vested special authority over the
,""1" railways in me interstate eom-
m,L"iI.on'.Ln."d.,,tlo!!.to ,ne eneral au-
interstate character of mil h of their
business. An order for td rnnn.tin
and service in this case would, of
course,' be a precedent for similar ord
ere that finally would bring all the sub
urban lines down Into the business sec
tion of the city.
To accomplish this would fairly re
volutionise the transit situation of the
town, and be a zreat boon ta hnfh h,..i.
ness Interests, on one hand, and the uh
u.uan iraiuemi on ine otner. It would
be one more tardy step toward accom
plishing for Washington what self-governing
towns all over the countrv have
generally succeeded In accomplishing
long ago-towns like Detroit. Cleveland,
Indianapolis, Dea Moines. Rochester,
and others whose suburban and Inter
urban electric service haa been devel
oped to, wonderful success, simply be
cause the towns compelled. In one way
or anouier, tne establishment of the
