CYNICAL AT 17, GIRL IN BEATTIE TRAGEDY SAYS ‘WHAT’S THE USE.’ [Special to the Newarti Star.] RICHMOND, Va., July 38—A girl of 17, sitting on the edge of a table, swing ing her crossed feet, preening and stretching before a hand mirror, gur gling with Joyous laughter, yet uttering a life philosophy so cynical and hope less it would be shocking from the lips of an ill-used woman of twice her age. That was Beulah Binford, the woman in the Beattie tragedy, in Richmond Jail on her seventeenth birthday. "Oh, what’s the use of trying to be good?” she said. “I've tried, but it's no go. I get a place somewhere and what happens? The first thing you know eyebrows go up and somebody is saying: 'Oh, ho! Don’t you know? That's the girl that so-and-so’—and so on—you know how they talk. And rm turned out on tbe street again. "Married.’ Why1, who'd marry me? I know perfectly well what 1 am. Not that I wouldn’t be a good wife. If I Just had one chance—if a good man would marry me, I'd make him as true and faithful a wife as any girl who ever lived. But no decent man would marry me, unless maybe some man in an insane asylum." , She laughed childishly. An emo tional actress might have spoken those words, and women In her audience would have wept. Beulah Binfo Is as soulless as a kitten. She Is a child never grown up —vain of her prettlness and desirous of having all the cream in the dish. That was why she took up with Harry Beattie. He was the rich boy of the town. The other girls she knew had no such brilliant figure In their trains. “I’d have been happy if he'd mar ried me," she said, "for he had plenty of money and I could have spent what I liked. But I didn't expect him to t disgrace himself by marrying me. I’d do anything to save him. He has his baby to live for and I have nobody.” “What made you come to Richmond this laBt tli. e? To see Harry?" “Oh, I know other fellows here. But I wan'ed to see him, too. I called him up." ’ “You didn't think of tne welfare of his baby then, did you?" She pouted at that, then—such dig nity. , “Look her;, son. You can’t make me tell about my past. I stood ofT six detectives for three hours, so what can you expect to do, little man?” “I’m not blaming anybody,” she said in — mctter-of-fact voice. "Nobody pushed me down. I never had a chance, that’s all. I didn’t have any brothers and my .mother couldn't give me the training I ought to have had. “I began to be bad when I was only IS. I knew I was doing wrong, but I didn’t r- illze what it meant. X know now—when It’s too late. But there was nobody to care much\vhen I went wrong—and nobody cares now.” I. O.

The self-confessed murderer ia Paul Geidel, 17 years old, who up until a 5 week ago was employed at the Hotel Iroquois. He will be arraigned In the Tombs Police Court tomorrow. , ’ In the apartments of tlio dead pan was found a bottle of chloroform, on which was a label bearing the , aina of “Palardy, druggist, Grant and Cen tral avenues. East Newark.” The f East Newark police were asked to make an Investigation, and Policeman McKenna was detailed on the case. After a long search. Policeman Mc Kenna learned that the chloroform had | been purchased by Miss May- Cogtello, of 4t> Central avenue, Kast Newark, . ! for her slftter, Mrs. Josephine Kane, of 245 Fiftieth street. New York. Last > week Mrs. Kane visited her slater and said that she wanted to kill her dog, which was sick. Miss Costello recom mended chloroform and said that she would purchase a bottle for her. This she did at Palardy's pharmacy. Chief of Police Rodgers, of Harrison, and Chief Neville, of East Newark, assisted Policeman McKenna. Mrs. Kane took the bottle to her home In New York, where she has a furnished room house, and among her j ' lodgers was Geidel. The bottle of s chi form was left in her room, but i when she went for It several days ago i It was ror " Suspicion fastened on 1 Geidel. i The Anger prints on the bottle will be compared with those of Geidel to morrow. i It mini mill r In Held. i Geidel Is held on a charge >f murder. His roommate, Patrick McGra.io, who ■ confessed he pawned the watch which Geidel stolo from Jackson, Is netd as i an accessory after the fact, and Ed ward Kane and his wife, Josephine, ' with whom Geidel and McGraiie roomed, are held as witnesses. The prisoners were arraigned in the Tombs Police Court today and re manded to await the action of the coroner. It was a love of Anery, for gaudy at tire that led the young bellboy to try robbery, which ended In murder. Ho had known his victim at the Iroquois as a liberal tipper, and believed he had "money in every pocket.” After his confession he collapsed. When Geidel was\ being led back to k$S cell he was weeping, and walled: ' I don't care what happens to me, hut, oh. my God, my poor mother and sisters In Hartford.” Bottle Gives Clue. Geldel’s capture was due to a bottls of chloroform he had taken with him to use In quieting the man he Intended to roh. The bottle had a druggist’s label on it, but Geidel destroyed the label so that only two letters and & j skull and crosshoncs—the grim emblems ! of death—were decipherable; but he didn’t know that under the top label there was a second one, and through this second label he was traced. Detectives who went to the Hotel j Iroquois in West Forty-fourth street, j yesterday morning to investigate the E murder of Jackson found In the bath room of the dead man's apartment the four-ounce bottle that had contained the chloroform. The label had been torn off and there were bloody Anger prints on the bottle. MARKET PLAN IN IOWA CUTS COST OF LIVINO.
