of the American embassy at Therapla, a

British   Court   Most   Brilliant   and   Animated   In   Europe���Work  aa
Chief Diplomat.
London, July 17.���The programme of
activities which King Kdward is undergoing this summer marks him as one of
the busiest and most hard working mon-
archs of his time.
ihe German emperor ham a popular
reputation for nctlvlty, and President
Roosevelt's name is linked with "the
strenuous life," but when it Is considered how much old'.��r the king of Kngland is. he may challenge comparison
with  either.
The visit to Ireland last week was
the last chapter of the king's work before an August vacation at Marienbad,
and  concluded  a  htrvnuous summer.
This week the king will go to New-
barket for the races, and after lhat to
the Goodwood races and to the Cowes
regatta, before bis departure for Marienbad, While abroad the king will meet
the emperor of Austria In September.
The German emperor will visit King
Kdward while the court ts in residence
at Windsor. He will meet much enter-
taiulng, reviewing of troops and formalities, but the recent announcement has
failed to excite any enthusiasm In this
country. During the two months since
the king returned from his journey to
the continent aud the Mediterranean
bis majesty has led a remarkably busy
life, devoting his time to official functions, to society and race meetings. In
two mouths he has officiated at three
levees, which impose considerable physical strain; attended every race meet
Of the Ascot week as well as the Derby;
received hundreds of officials, and disposed of quantities of routine official
work. The amount of travelling and the
change of uniforms aud civilian stilts
Involved constitute a considerable physical effort for a man GO years old.
There was much sighing In society
during the years of Queen Victoria's
widowhood for the splendors of court
life. King Kdward Is giving the court
and the country a memorable social
reign, apart from his duties as a diplomat.
King  Menellk of Abyssinia  Prepares to

Turin, Italy, July 17.��� Despatches
from thfl Kalian colony of Krylhrea, In
Africa, state lhat It Is feared that King
Menellk, of Abyssinia, Is preparing (o
make war on Italy. He Is organizing an
army or 20.001), ostensibly for the purpose of restoring order In tbat part of
Abyssinia close to Ihe Italian border,
but as the Installment of $1.00, 000 to
the King for the care of tbe Italian prisoners of Ihe last war has been paid,
Menellk has now nothing to expect from
Italy und the paclllc expedition Is regarded   as  the   merest   pretext.

Repeated Assurances of Reform Arc
Ignored���Private Motions Voted Down by Machine.
Ottawa, July 17.���The speech from
the throne al the opening of parliament
In 1906 informed the two chambers that
they would "be Invited to consider,
among other subjects," a bill to amend
the Dominion's Election Act. This
seemed to promise legislation for the
prevention of election frauds and kindred offences which have been a scandal
and a disgrace to the country. The
session passed, however, without any
government legislation to this effect.
Ilefore the opening of the last session
the Ijondon election conspiracy case and
a few other Incidents of the kind were
partially exposed. When the House met
tbe address from the throne repeated
Ihe promise of legislation "amending
the election acts." Speaking on the
address. Sir Wilfrid said that the laws
must be made more severe.
The premier went on to say: "We
have to improve the law and to make
wrongdoing as difficult as it is possible
to make it. In order to have pure election. Bribery Is had. but ballot switching Is ten times worse, and although It
Is impossible to have any sympathy
with bribery or the briber, still there
is not for them the same contempt that
there Ib for the ballot switcher, and if
the law is tn be made effective it must
be absolutely severe and provide the
severest penalty possible for anyone attempting lo lumper with the ballots.
That ia Ihe view that I think ought to
be tnken when we come to deal with
the matter."
Sir Wilfrid's opinion as to how the
House should deal with the matter
proved to have no great value, for he
never asked the House to deal with It
nt nil. Parliament was in session Ave
months after he spoke and the government lulroduceil no bill to amend the
election law cither for the punishment
of bribery or of ballot switching.
In the previous aesston Mr. Borden
and several other opposition members
hail Introduced bills for the prevention
and punishment of election offences and
these, at the request of the government,
went to a special committee. Since they
were not taken up as government measures they were crowded out by government legislation, as usually happens
with public hills Introduced by private
In the session of 1907 Mr. Borden
offered a motion setting forth very
clearly what In his opinion ought to be
done.    The following is the motion:
This House deplores the existence of
corrupt aud fraudulent practices at elections as evidenced by the disclosures
during racenl years of bribery, personation, ballot switching and other similar
frauds carried on by organized methods
and upon a very extensive scale.
This House strongly condemns the organized system of corrupt practices by
which the election of a minister of the
crown as a member for the city of Ijondon was Bocurcd In 1905.
Tills House Is of opinion that the existing electoral laws should bo amended forthwith, and thai provision should
he made.
ta)���For the more effective suppression and punishment of brlbory;
tb)���To prevent tho fraudulent mark
Ing. counting or substituting of ballots
and oilier similar frauds:
tc)���For the better regulation of the
conduction of elections on the part of
both ofllclnls and candidates:
Id)���To prevent the accumulation of
huge campaign funds and to prohibit
oonitlbullona thereto by corporations,
contractors and promoterB:
te)���To expedite the hearing of election petitions, to prevent colliiBlve ar-
rangementB for the discontinuance
thereof, to provide for thorough Investigation of corrupt practices and to simplify Iho procedure therefor;
If)���To carry out moro effectively the
law so amended.
This House regrets thai notwithstanding the pledge of lhe government oon-
lulnod In the speech from tho throne,
nnd notwithstanding the declarallonB of
members of Iho government from tltno
to time during tho past four years, no
such measure has been submlltod to
pnrllnino.it at the present session nnd
no effective steps have been taken by
the administration cither to amend the
laws  or  to  punish  Ihelr  violation.
The discussion on this motion dealt
with many recent Incidents bosldoB tho
London conspiracy case. Mr. Borden
reminded Sir Wilfrid l.nurler of the
pledge made at the beginning of tho
session, nearly five months before, nnd
i-criillcil tho premier's own course a
few years ago In shielding a notorious
gang of ballot BWltchera. All Inquiry
tun! boon begun Into the frauds hy
which the  scats  for  West   Huron  and
Brodkville had been stolen for government supporters. This Investigation by
a committee of the Commons went so
far as to prove beyond question that
bogus ballots had been used. These
were marked for Liberal candidates and
substituted for the Conservative ballots,
which had been regularly voted. The
fraud was shown by a comparison of the
poll books with the ballots and by comparing the bogus ballots with the genuine ones, which were printed on thicker
Government supporters In the committee obstructed Ihe Inquiry at every
stage so that It lingered on to the last
days of the session, when, by a vote of
the majority. It was postponed to the
next year. Among tbe witnesses summoned was a deputy returning officer
named Parr, at whose ik.I1 some of the
ballot switching occurred. Mr. Borden,
as a member of the committee, asked
for a summons for Farr and made arrangements to have it served. But the
word was conveyed quickly to the machine headquarters nt Toronto, and as
Farr afterwards swore, tbe party organizer called upon him and paid his
way out of the country.

Washington, July 17.���One of the
greatest and most Important congresses
of distinguished men from almost every
part of the civilized world will assemble
In Washington during the last two
weeks tn September and the first two
weeks in October, of next year, for an
exhaustive discussion of Ihe onuses of
"the great white plague."
This magnificent gathering of the

Emperor   Retires   From   Capital���Four
Pretender* Appear���People
Seoul, via Toklo, July 17.���The crisis
tn Korean affairs and the consequent
panic In court circles Is growing apaco.
It has been learned that Viscount Hayashi, foreign minister of Japnn, has
come to Seoul to untangle the knot
caused by the sending of a deputation
to Tho Hague to protest against Japan's attitude toward Korea. This latest
Intrigue, following a year's hostile obstructions to the work of Marquis Ito,
the Japanese resident general, has
weakened the Korean throne moro than
anything thnt has occurred since the
murder of the Queen. The silence of
Marquis Ito. ponding the action of the
Tokio government, hns demoralized and
caused a pnnic In the court and cnbl-
net. The hitter thought thut tho Emperor would send representutlves to
Toklo for the puniose of denying lhe
Kmneror's responsibility for the delegation at The Hague, but on July Bill, the
Emperor stopped nil communications to
himself and roll rod to a secluded country palace; there ho remains, quiet and
unaware of the nation's predlcnmcnt.
Besides Prime Pak Yun llo, who was
brought back lo Korea from oxlle
Prince YI Cheung Yong. another exile
who has boon waiting at Fiisan, Is a
protendor to the throne, which has now
four Candidates. The succession to the
Korean thii.no Is descrlboded here as
a hidden bomb. The crown prince Is regarded as incompetent, while Prince
Ewn Is considered to be a protege of
tho Japanese.

Brusae's, July 17.���Venexuela hns Intimated that It will refuse to pay the
$2,000,000 debt to Its Belgian creditors.
This decision Is contrary to the finding
of The Hague tribunal, and the Belgian
government, realizing that persistence
In tho refusal would Inflict tho mosl
serious Injury to the cuuse of arbitration. Is doing Its utmost to Induce Venezuela to carry out lhe Hague verdict.
Haywood Trial Will Last
Till Saturday
Long Strain Is Telling on Nerves of
Counsel���Borah Still Easy-
State Is Confident.
Boise, July 17.���Unless the plans of
the prosecution are changed today there
is little chance of seeing the close of
the Haywood case and the commencement of argument before next Saturday
at the earliest. J. H. Hawley, leading
counsel for the state, has announced
that he has eight or ten witnesses in
reserve. One or two of these, and perhaps half a dozen, may be called. Most
of the rebuttal evidence to b.* Introduced bears on the labor situation In
Colorado In the years 19011 and 1904,
and Is intended to rebut the claim ot the
defence that there existed a condition
of peace and quietness previous to the
calling out of state troops.
The close atmosphere of the court
room and the strain of the trial, now
well in the middle of the tenth week,
ia telling on the nerves of the counsel:
Mr. Richardson is somewhat sarcastic
aud Mr. Hawley aggressive. Senator
Borah is smiling and impassive, but Mr.
Barrow, losing some of the suaveness
of his manner, no longer pours oil upon
the troubled waters. Judge Wood shows
Impatience with the continual sparring
between counsel. Objections have been
incessant during the past two day;; and
a great deal of time Is taken up In
minor argument. Judge Wood is almost
uniformly good humored, however, and
this prevents a serious clash by turn-
nig the laugh on counsel.
Oulda Not In Strait*.
Rome. July 17.���The Tribuna says the
condition of Louise De La Ramme
(Oulda), the English novelist, Is much
Improved. She refuses to be Interviewed and the Tribuna says Is greatly enraged at what she terms the exaggeration of the British newspapers concerning her health and circumstances.
Louise de la Ramee, well known
throughout the English reading world
us Oulda, has been granted a pension
by the British government. The circumstance Is not unusual. A few years ago
a similar grant was made to Justin Mo
Cartny, and many other writers and artists whose fortunes have not been considered proportionate to their merits,
huve been recipients ot pensions from
a fund placed at the diBpoaal of British
premiers for that purpose. The grant
to Mdllo. de la Ramee has given rise to
reports of her illness and poverty, reports which all her admirers will be
glad to learn are greatly exaggerated.
She Is living now in the little Italian
city of Lucca, not In wealth, but still not
in distress. Oulda, as she Is best known,
does not give her age in the brief outline of her career given to the world
through the medium of "Who's Who?",
but her best-known novel, "Under Two
Flags." was published just 40 years ago,
and she hud published three before, the
flrst In im;;'.. Altogether she has written over 40 novels, besides numerous
essays on literature and society. About
15 years ago Oulda decided to give up
writing fiction and devote herself to social science, but ber efforts in that field
were not wholly successful and she
wisely retnrnod to her own calling.
Some of her works arc bitterly satiric
and unpleasant reading, notably "The
Massnrenes." Her best work has been
done In the telling of good stories like
"Under Two Flags," when Bhe quite forgot to point a moral nnd simply adorned
the tale, Oulda Is not in the first rank
of novelists, on 11 strict classification
perhaps hardly tn tho second, but she
la Infinitely Btiperlor to the horde of
nonontlties who are no wlloodlng the
market, and tho grant of a pension to
her in her declining years is the most
creditable act yet recorded of the Camp-
boll-llnnnerman   ministry.
End   of   Telegrapher*'   Strike    In   San
Franclaoo   In   Sight.
Sun Francisco, July 17.���As a result
of a conference yesterday between Labor Commissioner Nelll and President
S. J. Small, of the Commercial Teles-
riiphoi'B' union, nn end of tho telegraphers' strike has, it Is said, been brought
In sight. It was hinted yoste.day about
Ihe telegraphers' headquarters in Oak-
land that some friendship had developed
between President Small and throe
members of the executive committee
of the National union who came West
with Commissioner Nolll, 11ml ono of
them Is said to have strongly liillmuloil
that there would be no extension of Lhe
strike In other cities, whatever might
be the outcome here. It is believed that
strong Influence will be brought to persuade the terms offered by the companies.
Lanky Bob the Chief Attraction at Elk's
Philadelphia, July 17.���Tonight, for
the first lime since he was knocked out
by Jack O'Brien in December, 1905, the
veteran Bob Pitzsimmons la to don the
padded mits and face an opponent In
the ring. As a part of the entertainment programme prepared for the visiting Elks the Washington Sporting club
has arranged for a six-round bout between the former champion and Jack
Johnson, the big colored heavy weight.
It is the first time in a year or more
that a fight between heavyweights of
known ability has been pulled off in the
east and as a consequence keen interest
is manifested In the event: The club
exp .cts a record-breaking crowd at the
The ring followers are curious to see
if Fitzsimmons is "all In" as has been
the general impresaion In sporting
circles ever since the fight with O'Brien.
If the Australian retains any considerable part of his old-time cleverness and
hitting powers It goes without saying
that Johnson will have to keep busy
during the six-round engagement. In
hla prime Kitzsinimons would have disposed of a man of Johnson's calibre in
very short order. Whether, at forty-
five years of age, he is still possessed
of sufficient vitality to turn the trick remains to be seen. Many of his old-time
admirers do not hesitate to assert their
belief that he is still more than a match
for a fighter of Johnson's clasa.
Organization   of   Board   Proposed   for
Protection    of    Dealer*,
Client* and Public.
A real estate board has become a necessity for Nelson In the opinion of the
leading dealers, and a meeting for organisation will be called at an early
da to.
The object of the board will be the
protection of its own members, of Its
clients, and of tbe public, by collective
action in obtaining and publishing reliable information, and preventing misrepresentation in advertising and dealing.
The board of trade has spent a lot
of its time lately in dealing with the
matter, and will no doubt continue to
take an Interest in the frult-lund question, as it is one ot the chief interests
of Kootenay, but the board, aa such, has
no facilities for Investigating Individual
cases and will no doubt welcome the
relief afforded by the creation ot a responsible board to deal directly with the
The movement has been suggested by
the number of matters that have needlessly been discussed before the board
of trade lately, when explanation before
a real estate board might have led to a
remedy where required in far leas time.
Another Indirect cause Is the action,
hard to discover, of individuals, who are
not actually in the real estate business,
but who occasionally secure options on
small blocks. He in wait for Investors
Introduced Into the country by other
firms, and by misrepresentation seek to
win customers tor themselves. The
usual result, it is aald, of such action
has been, as tt was In mining, that the
newcomer Is frightened by the suggestion that one land company is dishonest, fears that all are the same, and
gives up his Intention of being a purchaser.
The organization of a real estate
board will, it ts felt, be a guarantee of
good faith and will be a protection to
the members from anonymous attacks
on their credit and reputation. Its existence as a public body will also be an
assurance to Investors that they are
dealing with responsible men.
Such boards are In existence In Winnipeg and Cnlgnry, where they have
proved their value by putting an end to
fraudulent dealing, and one ts now being organized in Vancouver. T. Q. Procter and J. F. Langnn nre the authors of
the Idea locally and will confer with the
others interested.
Exhibit of Women's Work.
London, July 17.���A unique exhibition
having for lis object the encouragement
of women's work In agriculture was

The affair was arranged by the Women's Agricultural and Horticultural International Union, which numbers many
prominent women of British nobility
among its patrons. The exhibits Included the products of the farm and
dairy, landscape gardening, home decorations, etc. Germany and France, as
well us all parts ot the United Kingdom,
were   represented  among the  exhibits.

Private Properly at Sea
Still Id Danger
Majority of Delegates for American
Proposal bat Hade Up of
Smaller Nations.
The Hague, July 17.���The vote on the
principle of the American proposition
regarding the Inviolability of private
property at sea was taken today by the
committee of the conference dealing
with the Geneva convention. Twenty-
one delegates voted favorably, 11 were
against the measure, and there was one
absentee. Great Britain, France, Russia, Japan, Spain and Portugal were in
opposition, while the Triple Alliance,
while it made no resolution, was among
the majority. Belgium presented a compromise proposal but Josepb H. Choate,
of the American delegation, refused to
accept it, saying that inasmuch as a
majority admitted the principle of Immunity, he could not consent to the
limitation ot thla idea, especially aa
Great Britain and Russia already had
declared they would not accept it in any
form. Professor De Martens, Russia,
who presided at the meeting, called attention to the fact that although the
American proposition was supported by
a majority of the votes passed, the population of the countries voting against
the principle was numerically in excess
of those favoring It.

At 6 o'clock ran Into a dense fog which
broke Into patches during the night. At
6 a. m. the fog thickened and the ship
was crawling along slowly. At 6:35 a
barque suddenly loomed up and lost her
bowsprit by dragging along our side.
We received very slight damage. The
barque was coming for our broadside
but prompt action on both sides prevented a direct collision. The barque
disappeared in the fog; we saw her
twice during a three hours' hunt but
was so quickly enveloped in the fog that
we could not speak to her, so we resumed our trail.   All well.

W. H. Lever, of Sunlight Soap, Awarded
��50,000  Damage*.
Liverpool, July 17.���The attempt
made in the winter of 1906 to organise
a huge soap combine In the United
Kingdom, which rapidly came to an end
under the pressure of adverse public
opinion, had a sesatlonal sequel in
the assizes court today, when W. Hes-
keth Lever, Liberal member of parliament for the Wyrrall division of Cheshire, secured Judgment for damagea of
$260,000 and coats against the Harms-
worth newspapers, the Dally Mall and
Evening News, for libels published by
them during tbe course of the controversy that followed the attempt to bring
about the combination.
After a heariug that has lasted for
two days the defendants this morning
suddenly withdrew their plea of Justification nnd agreed to pay the amount
demanded. Mr. Lever, It is declared,
took a lending part in the efforts to establish the soap combine.
Russia Asks Extradition.
Calgary. July 17.���A Russian, named
Matthias Raszkicwtcz, Is under arrest
on a charge of murder committed in
Russia ut Martanpalski two years ago.
The ltus'iliin government communicated
with the British government, which In
turn communicated with the Canadian
government, which communicated with
tbe provincial government. Details are
lacking, but It is believed that tbe
crime Is a political one. The arrested
man will light extradition on the ground

the man wanted.

The Canadian Liberal press, ai leaal
that part of It, and iin iilinusi the whole,
which may be described aa the tiiick
and thin Blip-porter of the Ottawa .Ma
chine, has nuturally felt Impelled to
make a counter attack upon the Com ��� i
vailves for all the condemnation thai
has been poured upon the Machine rrom
all Bources, Conservative, Independent
and  even  non-political.
The Toronto Globe ban been cuiHy of
two comic absurdities In Ita efforta. To
belittle Mr. McBrlde and bis partial victory over Sir Wilfrid Laurier, it lias,
besides calling him a demagogue, argued thai the elimination of "final ami

As we have pointed mil before, to Bay

out as a mailer of course, beiiiK ..Ti.si.it
ed to legal enactment*, Is to accuse sir
Wilfrid Laurier and his colleagui ��� of
cither ignorance or folly.' We do not
believe the charge to be well grounded
We believe that lhe words were meant
to be highly significant and that Sir
Wilfrid Laurier considered them ol
great importance. Mr. Win ton Church-
Ill, undersecretary or state for the ool
onies, certainly thought them Import
ant. Of course, there Is the possibility
that Mr. Churchill, Sir Wilfrid Laurier
and Mr. McHrlde are all grotesquely
mistaken and  the Globe  right, but  we
humbly   elect   to   follow   the   first   authorities.
The Globe has also put forward a defence, perhaps the only one conceivable,
for the Liberal rejection of a fast Atlantic service in lKDli as contrasted with
that party's ;ireBent enthusiasm for It.
The defence is that in 1896 there was
no trade lo warrant it, and that the
psychologic moment for its Inception
struck just as Sir Wilfrid Laurler. without a moment's warning or suggestion,
launched  the   proposal   at   the  Imperial
That argument of course condemns
the earnest efforts of Sir Richard Cart-
wright In the fall of 'lit! and during the
two succeeding years to arrange for a
s't vice equal to the one he and his colleagues  had  allowed  lo   lapse.
As to the peculiar fitness of the present time to launch such a scheme, It is
only necessary lo refer to recent despatches from London and Australia.
The l-'no Trade party In Britain, who
claim all the credit lor the great Radical
victory, Ib "finally aud unalterably" opposed lo tlie giantiug of any subsidies,
and tha government of the Australian
Commonwealth has already made other
Obviously fallacious as Ihe Globe's
contention Is. it has been followed with
wholehearled obedience by the rank
and file of the Machine press. Hut the
high-water mark of silliness has been
touched by our esteemed local content'
porary, which cuys: "The Tory antagonism to the All-Red Route is at leant
understandable"! It is greatly to be
reared that in thai quarter nothing Is
t ol. r.tandable. The Tory party advo-
���nil an All-Red route In 1890, had
completed arrangements for It, have
never faltered In their advocacy, applauded Sir Wilfrid Laurler'* belated
motion, is ready lo support II now If It be
o-.sible. Mr. Uorden, lhe official leader
of the Canadian Conservatives, has formally expressed his parly's approval
and urged that similar provision be
made for a fast All-Red freight service.
We would gladly credit our contem-
porary with deliberate mlsrepresenta-
lion. It would be charitable to do so.
Hut the capacity for such Imbecility do
nonslrates Incapacity for deliberation
or consistency of any kind.
The Liberal press Is probably willing
to  commit   itself  to  any absurdity   In
The reported hostile movement of
Abyssinian troops against the Italian
colony of Brythraea recalls the fact that
the Japanese were not the first dark-
skinned nice, even In our own times, to
win a decisive victory from an Kuro-
pean power. The annihilation or the
forces of Italy under Gen. llaratleri by
the soldiers of King Menellk under Ra>
Makonnen. Is too recent to be forgotten
The report from Winnipeg as lo the
success or the Kootenay exhibit is welcome news io those who worked tor the
collection and the forwarding of It.
Kvery Kootenaian believes his district
superior to any other in Canada for
fruit-growing. All that Ib required to
demonstrate lis superority is success in
transporting and staging an exhibit.
Rivers   inlet   Catch   Good���Skeena   and
Fraser   Are   Poor.
Vancouver, July 17.���Practically a
full pack of salmon Is expected to be
made at Rivers Inlet, according to Information brought by the steamer Princess Beatrice yesterday afternoon.
Fishing is very fair, the boats averaging from sixty to seventy per day.
The different paoks up to Saturday
evening were as follows: Wadliam's
cannery. 5C0O cases: Strathcona, "l-Oft;
Goodhope, 3H00; Heaver 400: Brunswick
4700:   Klldala. 3600;  Rivers Inlet, 3.r.00.
A Japanese was drowned near the
wharf at Wadhams last Wednesday
The elusive salmon Is keeping away
rrom the Fraser, and consequently the
canners entertain visions of a greatly
reduced pack this season, unless conditions improve very quickly.
"There have not been 100 cases put
up on the Fraser so far thla Beason.
This Is several thousand cases below
the figures for the corresponding period
or last year." said Mr W. H. Harker.
general manager of the Hritlsh Columbia Packers' Association, today. "We
look for an improvement later lu the
weey. The latest advices from the
Skeena, the next river to the Fraser
In point of importance, is also disappointing. We are face to face with a
reduced pack there."
The highest catch on the Fraser last
""night was twenty sockeyes. From
Canoe Pass many of tb'1 boats made
one drift, and being unsuccessful came
ashore. The catches on the North Arm
were no better. One boat secured ten
flsh. another nine, but most ot the fish
ermeli were not even that lucky.

fight will be made to save him from
Frau Moiitor was tho widow of the
medical councillor, Dr. Moiitor of Ba��eo-
liuden. On the morning of Nov. 5 last
she was called to the telephone in her
home at Baden-Baden and received a
request to go to the postofflce and get
a parcel that was there for her. She
started at once. When passing through
a quiet street a shot was tired from behind her, and Frau Moiitor fell dead.
The man who fired the shot was seen,
but he escaped. It is stated that Frau
Moiitor bad been long threatened, and
that cunning plots were laid against
her. The motive of the alleged crime
appears to have greed for money. Frau
Moiitor, who was wealthy, it is .--.aid.
refused many times to comply with
llau's request for money, having given
her daughter a considerable dowry, and
arranged that she should inherit part of
her fortune.
Karl Hau, the accused man, is not
yet 30 years of age. He is tall and slender, well educated and of refined a]>-
pearance. He was just 20 when he
married Miss Moiitor. It was an elopement, and the young people began a
restless, roving life. Hau had begun
to study law at the University of Frie-
burg, but discontinued his studies.
While the marriage Itself, contracted
against the mother's will, carried all the
elements calculated to disturb the relations between the mother and her
children, the continuous applications
for money also did not contribute toward improving her relatione with her
son-in-law. Nevertheless she received
the couple Into her house upon their
visits to Baden-Baden, and she sent
them money during their travels.
The sums sent, however, were not so
large as Hau demanded. Hence the life
of the family was always a distressing
story. It Is probable too that Frau
Molitor's harshness contributed toward
increasing the disagreements In the
Hau family. At any rate she sometimes
made trouble for him, even abroad, by
denouncing him as an anarchist to the
Hau was arrested in London a few-
weeks after the alleged murder. At
the time of his. arrest he denied all connection with the crime and has ever
since stuck to his story, though It Is
said that he has made several damaging
admissions. At his preliminary examination he admitted that be had been at
Baden-Baden up to the time when the
murder occurred. It has been ascertained, moreover, that he wore a false
beard in travelling from Baden-Baden
to England. Frau Molitor's servant-
girl who answered the telephone on the
fatal day asserted positively after the
murder that she recognized Hau's voice
In the telephone.
One of the pathetic features of the
case was the suicide of Prof, Hau's
young wife. On June S she was seen
to swim far out into a lake near Pfae-
flkon, Switzerland, and then deliberately sank beneath the waters. Two
days previously she had paid a visit to
her husband In prison here. She left
the prison In a state of the utmost depression and went back to Pfaeffikon
A long farewell letter was found in her
clothing after her suicide, in which she
declared that It was impossible for her
to any longer bear the sorrow of living
apart from her husband, notwithstanding the charge brought against him. The
governor of the prison informed Prof.
Hau or his wife's suicide and a story
was circulated at that time that the
nccuned man had then confessed to the
murder of his mother-ln-Iaw. The story
wubsequ-pntly was found to be without
Although greatly nttortod by his
troubles and particularly by the loss ot
his wife, the accused man has continued
to bear up well. He has received every
reasonable consideration from the authorities and the prison officials. When
arrested he had a large sum of money
In his possession and this he was allowed to retain and spend as he wished.
In prison he has occupied a room by
himself and has been permitted to have
his meals sent from a nearby hotel. He
Ik a Roman Catholic and has been comforted by frequent visits from priests
of lhat faith. He enjoys unlimited reading matter, and his only deprivation has
been tobacco. ___
