Diplomats consider the outlook for

Kiamil Pasha's resignation as grand
vizier may be the next development.
It is feared this would be followed by
anarchy. The country is hard pressed
for money and the condition and spirit
of the army are matters of doubt.
Observers of the situation in Lon

allies declare that they are ready to
face all events. They say that no
fewer than 400,000 of their troops are
concentrated around the fortress of
Adrianople and along the lines of
Tchatalja while all the heavy siege
batteries have been placed In position
before Adrianople.
General Boyovitch, the Servian hero
of Monastir, asserts that within two
days Adrianople can now be captured.
Although the mobilization of the
Russian and Italian armies Is denied
there is no doubt that Austria-Hun

with the object of enforcing her claims
In the Balkans, especially in Albania. ■
The plenipotentiaries of the allies
remark that the attitude of Austria-
Hungary is not so much against them
as against Italy and that for this rea
son, owing to the rivalry between
these two members of the triple al
liance, the Balkan states will suffer.
They assert that Austria-Hungary is
depriving Montenegro of Scutari only
because, in case that city does not
become the capital of Albania. Avlona,
which is under the direct influence of
Italy, will be chosen.

Defendant i n Suit for Wages Disclaims
Responsibility in Pleadings Made
in Superior Court
That Quan San Wo and Chin Way,
wealthy Chinese contractors, are re

hands to receive $180 each for seven
months' work in Alaska is the conten
tion of the Northern Alaska Salmon
company, defendant in a suit brought
by F. T. Putnam, representing the
laborers on trial yesterday before
Judge R. K. Clarke of Ventura county
in extra sessions Ii The company dis
claims responsibility for the failure of
the men to receive all (heir promised
pay, declaring that the 'contractors
were to blame for a gambling orgy
that took place on the voyage to the
canneries and also that the contractors
overcharged the men for supplies.
The plaintiffs are whites, negros and
Chinese. They allege that they were
engaged by the Chinese contractors to
work at the Alaskan canneries from
March 1 to October 4, 1912, and were
to receive $160 each. When they re
turned to San Francisco some were
paid $2.50, others $5 and none received
more than $15.
The salmon company does not claim
that the men were not entitled to the
money, but that the contractors arc
responsible. The total sum sued for is

his speeches on questions of the

Metz, a well known soprano soloist of
that district, he soon became engaged
to her and later left for San Francisco.
In September of that year he sent for
her and they were married in San Ma
teo county September 11. At that time
he was preparing to go to Buenos Aires
for the Board of Missions. He failed,
however, and left with his wife for her
home, after preaching a short time at
After several months' residence at
the Metz home, during which, accord
ing to the statements of Metz, his ac

torious that he was ordered to leave.
De Tovrea left, supposedly for Wash
ington, leaving his wife at her parents'
home. The next trace of him is found
In the police records of Sandy, Klacka
mas county, Ore., which show that on
April 7, 1911, he was arrested upon a
charge of assault, preferred by Mrs. G-
L. Talmage. Released on $100 bail, lie
disappeared. In June of t,he same year,
in Ashland, Ore., De Tovrea (also known
there as O. F. Horn) was charged with
contributing to the delinquency of two
minor girls, aged 15 and 16, but he
escaped conviction on a technicality.
Notwithstandlng his expose In the
newspapers through these two cases De
Tovrea boldly returned to Redding,
disguised with a mustache and glasses
and under the assumed name of Martin
Mclntyre. He was recognised through
a hat formerly given him by hie father
in law, and confessing he was
De Tovrea told to leave town. He was
working in a grocery at the time.
The Richmond police are in com
munication with the police at both Ash
land and Sandy. It is understood there
are additloanl charges which may be
pressed against De Tovrea if It Is
proved that he and the Rev. Mr. Horn
are the same person. It Is even as
serted that he may be liable for big
amy; that he was already married to
a girl in Washington when he con
tracted the Redwood City marriage.
In spite of the identifications and
the mass of evidence being collected
against him Rev. Mr. Horn, who re
cently became known far and wide as
"the skating rink parson." because he
opened a rinki-in the basement of the
Richmond church for the members of
the Sunday school, still maintains his
absolute Innocence nf being De Tovrea.
Propped up in bed with pillows, he

this fellow. If I were tnarried I would

I am not. I am not much of a "girls'
man," as the people of Richmond will
tell you. I suppose I am again the
victim of the misdeeds of my mis
guided brother, Edward, my twin.
Though I weigh 30 pounds more than
he does, our general appearance is iden
tical. In fact. In school I used to
change seats with him often when he
did not know his lesson.
"At the age of 10 we were both
thrown out in the world to make our
living as beßt we could. For three
years wo sold papers. Most of the
time I paid Edward's expenses as -well
as my own, for he gambled away his
earnings. Our ways drifted apart, and
when I began studying for the min
istry we separated. Since then I have
seen him but a few times. Many times
I have been dun«ed by mistake for
his Xbt very long ago I saw
him in San Francisco and he told me
he was in trouble with some girl he
had married. My mother, who "has
been living in Portland, Ore., wrote
me that he had been converted and
was doing church work.
"I have my credentials of gradua
tion from two theological colleges, and
also my papers of ordination, first in
the Christian church and later the
Baptist. I was ordained a Baptist min
ister In King City two years ago. All
these papers T will produce at the
proper time. From King City I went
to Paso Robles. where I was pastor of
the Baptist church for nine months. In
April of last year I came here, where
I have found a great field for both
religious and humanitarian work. In
September of 1910, when this Mac Metz,
whom I would very* much like to meet,
says I married her, or rather De Tovrea
married her, I was hunting with a
miner in Nevada and the Hetch Hetchy
county. If necessary I will send for
him to come down and testify in court.
So you see it's all a great mistake,
though I am afraid it will seriously in
terfere with my contemplated plans
for this parish. lam hoping that it
may not be my brother but still an
other person who may resemble me."
Pressed for the names of his col
leges, he said he was graduated from
the lowa Christian college, whose lo
cation he did not give exactly. Asked
for his mother's address, he said she
had moved recently and he could not
recall the old address, as he made It a
practice to destroy all letters as soon
as answered. He was reticent in dis
cussing the other members of his fam
ily. Though denying knowing the
name Martin Mclntyre, Rev. Mr. Horn
a few minutes later remarked that his
mother's name was now Mrs. Mcln
tyre. The accused * minister became
much worried when he was acquainted
with the fact that, as he had been

Jadwin Met His Wife on a Tour
San Francisco Society Is
Shocked by Murder of
Mrs. Jadwin and Sui
cide of Husband
The shooting Monday night of his
bride of seven months, Mrs. Minna Van
Bergen Jadwin, by Donald Jadwin,
wealthy young clubman and Harvard
graduate, was almost the only topic of
discussion yesterday, and condolences
of all kinds flowed Into the home of
Mrs. Edward A*. Van Bergen, mother of
the slain woman. San Francisco society
was shocked.
A formal report was made by Coroner
Leland in the morning after an exam
ination of the bodies, that the husband
and wife had died "as the result of
gunshot wounds inflicted by Donald
Jadwin "
T4ie facts as related by the witnesses
the evening of the Shooting stand
virtually as before.
Jadwin entered through the kitchen
of the house of Mrs. Anna Bauer, at
2512 Pacific avenue, speaking -to the
two maids as he passed. They noticed
his nervous condition, but before they
had time to reflect on its probable out
come he had entered the dining, room,
kissed the young wife from whom he
had been senarated for 10 days, and
then shot her. Following that he
turned the revolver on himself.
In dvlng agony Mr«s. Jadwin jumped
from her place at the dinner table,
where she was surrounded by friends
and relatives, and rushed into the hall,
th" r e to fall in a heap.
Her-mother was the first of the as
tonished group to move. She ran after
her daughter, crying, "Are you hurt?"
as she knelt beside her.
"I am killed!" gasped Mrs. Jadwin,
who but a few seconds before had been
addressed by her husband for the last
time as "Minzie." She lapsed Into un
consciousness immediately, but opened
her eyes twice before she died, al
though she said nothing more nor
showed any sign of consciousness.
Several attempts at reconciliation of
Jadwin and his wife had been made by
Berrian Anderson. nephew of the
slayer, but these efforts had all proved
ineffectual. Mrs. Jadwin was due to
become a mother, and this reason has
be*»n given for Mrs. Van Bergen's de
sire to keep Jadwin away from her
daughter after they had quarreled.
Rumors of troubles between the two
are said to have been rife for some
time. Previous to the occasion when
Mrs. Minna Jadwin refused to talk t'6
her husband over the telephone, the oc
currence ascribed as the probable im
mediate cause of his temporary rage
and revenare, he asked to meet her, and
was refused.
Jadwin had intended to go east last
Saturday morning, and so sent for his
wife to meet him at the ferry. She
refused, and Jadwin remained in San
"We do not know -why he should
have committed the deed," said Edgar
N. Van Bergen, cousin of Mrs. Jadwin.
"The separation evidently preyed on
his mind."
According to Van Bergen, Jadwin
was last seen before his appearance in
the Bauer home at Sacramento and
Montgomery streets the afternoon of
the tragedy. At that time he appeared
perfectly sane, according to those who
saw him, and also paid up an insur
ance premium to a friend who was an
agent for the company in which he was
injured. This fact may have Indicated
a desire up to that time only to com
mit suicide and to leave his financial
affairs in such shape so as to provide
for his widow.
Mrs. Van Bergen, it seems, was re
duce 50 reputable witnesses at any
time who will positively swear to the

as one of the family for many months,
and I guess I ought to know him. If

young and inexperienced in the ways
of the world, go far away from her
after her marriage. In deference to
her wishes, Jadwin remained west,
continuing his position with the Gen

as related last night," said Eldredge
Green, cousin of Mrs. Jadwin and close
friend of her husband "They had been"
separated for 10 days amd she had re

we have made no plans, nor have our
minds been in condition to talk about
this terrible blow," said Frank B. An

Funeral arrangements have not been
made definitely, though it is expected
that Mrs Jadwin will be burled to
morrow. Jadwln's body will be cre
mated and the ashes sent east.
Jadwin spent part of his youth in Cal
ifornia and attended the Hitchcock mil
itary academy In San Rafael. His sis
ter, Mrs. Anderson, who was formerly
Miss Bessie .Tadwip, was living here,
and he made his home with her at that
time. Later he went east again and en
tered Harvard, where he was well
known as an athlete.
His courtship of Miss Van Bergen was
largely a case of love at first sight,
their engagement taking place a few
days after they had met on a steamer
on the wav to Europe. Jadwin Intended"
