Attorney Hale to the Defense of

Hayward no Matter as to Other
Crimes Never Vas Even Remote
ly Connected With the Murder of
Dr Hayworth Thorough In

Statement Made Other Crimes
Hale when seen today with reference
to the publication of one of the sup
pressed portions of Harry Haywards
confession to the effect that he had
caused the murder of Dr Hayworth
the husband of Mr Hales daughter
in Chicago In April 1891 said
There is absolutely no truth in the
story I wan called Into the Hayward
case while he was undergoing an ex
amination at the West hotel and I
was his counsel until other counsel
I came into the case While he was in
Jail information came to me of a clan
to lynch him and i was thought best
to remove him to St Paul He was in
I great fear of a mob and sent for me
I When I came he stated that he did
I j not believe he would live to be tried
I j and wanted to make a statement to
me so that If ho was hung his parents
I would know the exact facts He then
i went on and told the story of the Glng
I murder substantially as Blixt told it
I on the stand He did not then or at
i any time state that he had anything
i to do with Dr Hayworths death hut
I1 withdrew from the case kriowlng his
guilt I thoroughly investigated the
cause of Dr Hayworths death at the
time I occurred and had a cost
I mortem examination by some of the
best physicians of Chicago and I want
to say now that all the facts and cir
cumstances absolutely preclude the
idea that Hayward or any other per
death son had anything to do with his

Join the militia i you wish my
I boy said the old man in his kindly
I way but dont get in a company that
has a fat captain
I dont see what difference that can
I make returned the boy Do you
mean to contend that a fat man cant
be a good soldier
I i Weil not exactly that my boy
j explained the old man but in som
j ways you will find the thin man or the
man of rrfedium build preferable Did
nt I ever tell you of my experience
Ah that explains your doubts then
You see I once had an ambition to
wear a uniform and march behind a
band just like you and I joined a com
pany that unfortunately had a fat cap
tain No one thought of the captain
particularly at the time the company
was organized but we all learned to
look out for such trifles later While
i we were In the armory it was all right
and everything always passed off sat
i isfactorily but when we began to drill
out of doors ah then we found how
I serIous a matter drilling with a fat
captain a
Buy why asked the boys You
I havent told me that yet
Hed lose his breath just at critical
I moments Hed start us out at double
I i time and then get so winded himself
that he couldnt stop us Of course we
would have to go on We were too
I well drilled to stop until we received
the order to do so I remember once
he started us out lost his breath was
unable to order a halt or to keep up
with the column and we run three
miles before we stopped
What made you stop then in
quired the boy
j We ran into a stone wall replied
theOld man promptly
Pooh Why didnt you scale it
j You were a nice kind of soldiers you
I were I Id been your captain Id
have court martialed the whole lot of
you for disobedience of orders

and the boy looked at the man and a

them They were no longer friends

The sun shone high in the blue
heavens the soft fragrant air heavy
with the scent of roses and carnations
stirred the creepers on the low white
house sighed faintly through the s
at the bottom of the velvety terrace
and lawns which sloped down to the
edge of the miniature lake shimmering
In the hot July sunshine Through the
trees walked stiffly a tall broadshoul
dered specimen of the stronger sex
with a long military stride whistling
carelessly as he skirted the lake and
I disappeared into the tangled wood
path As he passed out ot sight a wo
man came slowly up the green terraces
paused as she reached the top to
glance back at the retreating figure in
i the distance then she turned away
I with a little Impatient gesture gather
ing the soft folds of her gray dress
together as she mounted the wide
I shallow steps and sauntered slowly
along the shadowy shrubbery path
I where the leafy branches met overhead
I forming a natural avenue of cool de
licious shade She sat down wearily
on the rustic seat at the far end of the
mossy path resting her head against
the old tree at her back the dark
shadowy background throwing into
strong relief the slight gray figure
with the small head proudly erect
crowned with masses of goldenbrown
I hair curly and soft forming a dark
setting for the t > ale face out of which
shone those glorious dark gray eyes
with a deep violet tinge in them just
now filled with an overpowering weight
of weariness and agony of dlasppoint
He never cared she said to her
self Are his eyes blinded that he
cannot see the truth for himself
Her bosom heaved under the soft
silky folds of her cool gray dress her
hands were tightly clasped before her
Suddenly her whole attitude changed
and relaxed and she resumed her old
careless posture a maid came down
the path with a silver salver in her
hand The woman glanced at the
name inscribed thereonLord Ber
I I will come In she said and the
I maid returned to the house She sat
motionless for an instant then rose
quickly as if some sudden determina
tion had seized her A scornful smile
curved her red lips as she walked into
the cool shadowy drawing room
I through the open French window As
I she entered a man quickly advanced to
meet her he seized both her hands In
his saying passionately
Ruth I have come for my answer
What is it to be
She turned away her head for an
instant and looked out into the sunlit
garden down to the dark shady wood
with the lake dancing In the hot sun
shine then she looked back In the
dark handsome face of the man beside
herIt Is to beyes she said in her
clear cool voice with no trace of emo
tion but she shuddered involuntarily
as she was clasped in her lovers arms
edy That was the first act of the trag
The curtain rises on the second act
Ruth Lady Berrington whose unemo
tional tragic beauty had taken the
world of fashion by storm is seated in
her nowerscented boudoir she has not
altered much during the last two years
her beauty Is still as marvelous as
ever unspoilt by all the turmoil of a
London season where the world had
bowed down to the new beauty At
first to her unsophisticated mind the
intoxicating whirl of the ceaseless
gayeties was at once pleasant and
novel but now she is heartily tired of
I she is filled with an intense mad
longing to revisit the old home in the
quiet peaceful country the oldfash
Ioned j garden the tangled wood and
the lake glimmering under a cloudless i
I dazzling skyhow it all comes back to
her a flood of bitter memories A
warm breeze steals in at the open win
I dows blowing out the long filmy cur
I tains and bearing a whiff of mignon
ette from the flowerfilled balcony
I fowerfled balcny
The door opens and a man enters
At the sight of him Ruth rises with
I wih
a suppressed cry pale to the very lips
She holds out her hand
Captain Tremayne she says this
is indeed a surprise I had no idea
that you had returned
The visitor holds her hand in his
letting his eyes rest on the pale lovely
face for a moment then they both sit
lie Is the first to speak
I I only arrived in England a few
days ago and being in town I seized
I the first opportunity to call on you
for the sake of auld
lang sync
Ruth smiles and slowly unfurls her
feather fan the heat is terrific
You are very kind she says and
I am more than pleased to see you
I Two years have passed since we last
I met am I much altered
She looked straight at him Inquiring
ly and tue iookt sends a hot thrill
through his whole being
You are more beautiful he says
This seriously spoken speech causes
a little ripple of laughter to break from
Ruth as she slowly fans herself
You have grown complimentary dur
ing your two years absence on foreign
service she says lightly but her eyes
drop as she meets his
I is actually so long since I spent
that long delightful day at Pens
Court Do you remember the lake and i
the wale in the woods i
Remember her voice thrills with I
some strong hidden emotion as if I I
should ever forget the She checks I
herself hurriedly
And now are married he
you re
marks irrelevantly I was a coward
A coward Why She disregards
his first remark I
Why he asked fiercely because I I
was afraid to speakbecause I knew II
you feared povertythat you sought a
brilliant allance I
She stops him with a sudden imperi I
ous gesture her eyes blazing with a i
passionate light I
Silence I You malign me I never I
sought this brilliant alliance i
Scornfully What has it brought nu
but She breaks off abrupty aiiOV
with a sudden movement pulls bac I
her loose hanging sleeve revealing an II
ugly livid bruise on the waite arm
then with 3 bitter smile she lets the i
I sleeve fall again and turns toward the I
window He starts to his feet his hand
some face dark with passion
Ruth he cries seizing her hands I
in hia fiercely it was ail a horrible
mistake my cowardice has wrought
you of this My darling you love me
She does not move a shiver runs
through her a shiver of mortal agony
Ruth speak Tell me you love me
You hurt me she says faintly
striving to free herself from his firm
grasp She raises her agonized eyes
to his and is then clasped in his arms
For one instant she lies passively then
frees herself with a wrench
Leave me she says unsteadily
why do you come now that it is too
latetoo late You must go Good
by She lipids her hand in dismissal
and farewell
His passion completely overmasters
him as he looks upon her pale and
sorrow stricken
I will not go he says vehemently
Ruth you do not you cannot mean it
For your own alee He advances
quickly < but she repels him
For my own sake and for yours
And then he knows that all i ended
With one farewell look he leaves her
and goes out of the room while she
sinks wearily into her chair Il dull
aching pain tearing at her heart
strings m
Time slips by insensibly A new
beauty has usurped Lady Berringtons
position in4socety from which she has
now withdrawn herself Her husband
< i 11
is dead killed himself in the hunting
field and she is free to come and g
as she wilL The great town is shut
tered and empty and she ha flown to
the restful quietude of Pens Court the
home of her childhood which she
bought back a a home for herself in
I her lonely widowhood Then will hope
fill her heart Now that he knows she
I is really free Maurice will surely come
to her he must know These hopes
I are strengthened when at a dinner
party she hears the familiar name
mentioned He is coming to stay with
some distant neighbors ah it is t b
