Tony Milano, the Italian shoemaker condemned to die on the sallows on June 6, has made a confession that he killed Harry Elton Smith, twelve years old, while In a fit of rage. Mllano's confession was made In the hope that President Wilson would ex ercise clemency and commute the death sentence to life lmprlsonmont. Attor neys for Milano have a theory that he was insane when he commuted the crime, and is possibly deranged at the present time. Goes To McReyoolds. Attorneys Daniel W. Baker and James F. Kelly have turned the confession of Milano over to Attorney General Mc Reynolds in the hope that it will reach the President. An Investigation will be made by Department of Justice officials and a recommendation will then be made by Attorney General McReynolds to President "Wilson. Milano declares that ha killed the Smith boy in a fit of anger, but denies that he beat the boy with a shoe ham-1 mer, as several witnesses at the trial testified. He says he was "so Infuri ated and crazed by what I have done that I do not know exactly what I did." The theory of the Government at the trial was that Milano was a degenerate, and argued this contention to the Jury. This was the only motive for the crime advanced by the Government prose cutor. Practically no defense was put forth by Milano at the trial, although the defendant's counsel urged him to plead Insanity. At the last moment Milano refused to take the witness stand, and the defense virtually rested on an alibi, .which was shattered by evidence de duced by the Government. The Confession. The confession Is: "I now make a full statement as to how the boy Harry E. Smith was killed. I was sitting in my shop working, and while so engaged the boy rushed In. He did not ask for change, but rushed up toward me apparently as though he was chased In there by some other boys. In my excitement I either struck him with the hammer or threw the ham- mer at him. "After hitting him I was so in furiated and .crazed by what I had done that I do not know exactly what I did. "I believe that after I struck the boy with the hammer that I be came out of my mind, an dfor that reason 1 cannot remember anything that happened thereafter. I have tried to think it out while sitting in my cell, but have no recollec tion of getting any oil or putting the oil around and setting Are to the place. I don't even remember throw lag the boy behind the couch, nor have I any recollection of settinir ; fire to the place." i Milano was convicted In the District' 'Supreme Court on October 2S. last, on a : Jcharge of murder In the first decree, j The Indictment charged that he mur-i tiered the Smith boy on the afternoon I of September 11. 911. using a hammer or J Otner blunt instrument, ine testimony was to the effect that the charred body of the Smith boy was found In the de bris of the Italian's shoe shop, which mi discovered on Are early the next Aged Citizen Dead mWWmcsc d ?&rB -v?

Miss Myrtle Smith, twenty-four years old, a sister of the murdered boy made an attack on Milano at the inquest and scratched his face severely before policemen could intervene. At the grave Miss Smith became hys terical and. was cbnfined in the Wash ington Asylum Hospital for several days afterward as a result of the ner vous breakdown. Subsequently site died as the result or an overdose oi poison. Milano attempted to commit suicide in the District Ja'l on October 21, fol lowing the commission of the crime, and suice then has been closely guarded by Jail officials. Gets Divorce and Children.

My ht'slu.nd was a former member of the U ayh and Means Committee and all my life I have been in touch with public and political affairs. My honest Judg ment is that the proposed tariff bill Is going to bring injury to the South. If I am afforded a chance I would like to tell the Senate subcommittee now we feel about the cotton Industry. "The cotton manufacturers all through the South in the Carolinas and in Georgia are in pessimistic frame of mind. They met recently at Columbus and denounced the Underwood rates. "My prediction is that this bill will first result In the curtailment of addi tional investments by capitalists. Then our Southern cotton mills will begin to run on "part time." Finally, there will be a complete shut down, and thousands of our people will be out of employment. The rates In the Underwood bill nre too low: unlesi thei oenaie can ne persuaaen to increase them I fear for the prosperity of those who have welcomed the cotton mill in our midst. "This Is not my view alone. I am In position to say that men who have carltal Invested In the cotton mills in our section are similarly alarmed. Al ready there Is talk of retrenchment, and some of the leading operators have ceased making Improvements and are gradually heading toward the shut down which will throw many Southern neonle out of tran!avmenL" Mrs. Felton recalls that a score oft years ago there was a great agitation against so-called child and woman labor in the Southern cotton mills. At the suggestions of Northern newspapers and magazines she made a tour of In flection through one of the mills near her own home. Cartersvllle. "The case of one widow Is typical of what I found." she said. "This woman theretofore had lived on a farm, eking out a hand-to-mouth ex istence.

When I asked her If she wan'crt sympatny sne repnea: If ou h.til seen the kind of life we lived before coming here you wouldn't ak Mich a question." Opposed To It , "I am oppossd to child labor In the obnoxious sense of the word," con tinued Mrs. Fclton.
