Price Five Cents,
President Raises Embargo
on Supplies to Mexico���
Neutral Stand.
Villa  Says War  Will  Not  Last  Much
Longer���Confident Now of Success of Revolution.
Washington, Feb. 3.- President Wilson by an executive order dated today
and made public at the* White House
tonight removed all restrictions
against the exportation of munitions
cf war into Mexico from the United
Stales, placing the contending elements on a basis of equality with respect to the purchase of arms and
supplies in tills country.
The executive order emphasized
lliat it was the desire of the United
States to be In the same position of
neutrality toward the contending factions in Mexico us were the other
As Other Powers.
The text of the proclamation follows:
"Whereas by a proclamation of the
president, issued on March 14, 1912,
under a joint resolution of congress,
approved by the president on the
same day, it was declared that there.
existed in Mexico conditions of domestic violence, which were promoted
by the use of arms or munitions of
war procured from the Unlti d States.
"And, whereas, by the Joint resolution above mentioned, it thereupon
became unlawful to export arms cr
muuitions of war to Mexico except
through such limitations and exceptions as the president -should prescribe;
"And. therefore, I, Woodrow Wilson,
president of the United States of
America, hereby declare and proclaim
that, as the conditions on which the
proclamation of March 14, 1912, war
based, have essentially changed, und
ns it i.i desirable to place the United
States with reference to the exportation of arms cr munitions of war to
Mexico in the same position us other
powers, the said proclamation is
hereby revoked."
Conditions  Altered.
.\cccmpanyiug the order, the
Hou *rdered tin* following
I..* ut of explanation:
"The Executive order under which
the i xportation of brms and ammunl*
tlon Into Mexico is forbidden was a
departure from the accepted practlcej
of neutrality���a deliberate departure
from those practices under a well considered joint resolution of congress,
dcti -mined upon In circumstances
which have now ceased to exist, it
was intended to discourage incipient
revolts against the regularly constituted authorities of Mexico. Since'
that order waa issued the circumstances of the case have undergone
a radical change, There is now no
constitutional government in Mexico,
and the existence of tills order hind
i rs and delays the very thing the government of the United States is now-
insisting upon: Namely, that Mexico
shall be left free to Bettle her own
affairs and, as soon as possible, pul
them upen n constitutional footing by
her own force and counsel. The order Is therefore rescinded."
The End in Sight?
.luarez. Feb. 3.���"The Mexican war
will not  last much longer."
So commented Oeneral Francisco
Villa and the other rebel leaders on
the announcement from Washington
today that President Wilson had lifted
ihe embargo against the shipment of
arms and ammunition Into Mexico.
Oeneral Villa was confident that hl3
ability to procure unlimited arms
would boon multiply the rebel victories and just as confident that the
newa from Washington would dis
courage and demoralize the federal
troops, so that a speedy termination
of the internal strife among Mexicans
was in sight.
Wm. Bowater, Jr., Acquitted
by Jury���Isaac Portray
Given Freedom.
British-American Peace
���**r .
Treaty Almost Assured
Letter of Appeal from Mother of Convicted   Miner   Successful���Nanaimo Cases Today.
The last of the first round in the
Kxtension coal strike cases came yesterday afternoon with the acquittal
of William Bowater, Jr., after his second trial on the usual six counts of
rioting, etc. At the first hearing of
the charges against Bowater the jury
disagreed ind the outcome of the second hearing yesterday finally settles
the matter und gives the young man
his freedom.
Exactly the same evidence was submitted as was heard before and it did
not take the jury more than an hour
to come to a verdict of acquittal.
Considerable satisfaction was expressed among the union sympathizers of Extension, who will now have
a holiday during the trials of the Nanaimo cases, which open this morning. Many of the union folk of Extension expressed the opinion that the
charges against the remaining twenty-
odd of their fellows would not be
pressed, but on this point no intimation  has  yet come  from the crown.
The Nanaimo cases open today with
the trial of Bob Maddow, it having
been decided by the prosecution to
take some of them at least singly. In
all there are 20 men under charge in
connection with the riots at Nanaimo
and for the crown there will be in
the neighborhood of 17 witnesses,
with a similar or larger number for
tho defence.
Convicted   Miner   Freed.
Isaac Portray, who was convicted at
the special court of assize before the
Christmas adjournment of having had
a hand In the rioting at Extension
during the coal strike troubles last
August and who sine*; then has been
held at the provincial jail in this city,
yesterday was liberated by the honorable Justice Morrison.
When Portray was brought down
from the jail and stood in the deck
the presiding judge informed him that,
In consequence of a letter which he
had received from the prisoner's
mother, he had decided to give him
his liberty, his sentence under the
conviction being the time he already
bad spent in jail. Ills lordship said
that be agreed fully in the verdict
brought In by the jury, bul he was
showing leniency to the prisoner as a
result of a mother's appeal and he
hoped that the young man would pro
til by the experience he bad gained
in this trouble. With a parting word
of advice to go back to his mother,
the  judge  dismissed   Portray.
The appeal of the defence In the
.Toe Angelo case, in which the* accused was recently convicted en six
counts of riotinte. etc., at Kxtension,
is  not yet  settled.
The matter waa taken to the court
of appeals in Victoria on Monday and
there argument was put in on 18
counis in favor of a stated case from
the trial judge, the honorable Justice
Morrison. Of these 16 points points
15 were thrown out and the remaining one  is  still  to  be  decided.
Washington, Feb. 3.���Sir Cecil
Spring-Klce, the Britisii ambassador,
had a long conference with Secretary
Bryan today regarding the formulation of a peace treaty between the
United States and Great Britain similar to those which the secretary was
negotiating with eleven countries, six
of which have actually signed the
Oreat Britain has approved Mr.
Bryan's plan in principle. It is nol
regarded as probable, however, that
the   provision    for stopping the   de-
jvelopment of armaments for a year
j while committees of inquiry are at
| work, would be incurred in a British-
: American peace convention.
The  ambassador  has  now    almost
; completely recovered from the illness
whicli afflicted him last summer and
fall as a consequence of using water
; containing mineral salts in large pro-
1 portions.    He  has  taken   up  the  full
quota of his work at the embassy, and
* has   had   several   important     conferences with the secretary of state and
i members of the diplomatic body.

Ottawa, Feb. 4���Estimates of the
minister of marine and fisheries and
the minister of customs were under
review In the commons today. Oood
headway was made with the voting
of the appropriations and a number
of interesting ministerial statements
were forthcoming during the discussion.
Hon. J. D, Hazen announced that in
calling for tenders for the construction of vessels for the marine department he Insisted that they must be
built in this country.
This policy was warmly approved
by Hon. Mr. Lemieux and other members of the opposition.
During the discission for the purchase of supplies Mr. Hazen said that
the government is following the same
practice as that pursued by the late
government. In many cities a number of firms known to be friendly to
the government are asked to put In
bids. He defended the practice of
governments buying supplies from
their friends, providing the public Interest did not suffer.
Mr. Lemieux said that the Conservatives had. when In opposition, very
strongly criticised Hon. L. P. Brodeur
for just this sort of thing. Now they
were vindicating* him.

Excitement    Pervades    House    When
Delicate Subject Is Discussed���
Not Ready for War.
Washington, Feb. 3���Asiatic exclusion agitation was quieted temporarily
at least in the house after a heated
debate today that brought both Republican and Democratic leaders to
the floor with pleas for calmness and
deliberation. By ove rwhelming votes
the house stripped f om the immigration bill under consideration all the
amendments which would have placed a bar against Asiatic Immigration.
The action was taken after Republican Leader Mann, Representative
Shirley of Kentucky and other leaders
made a vigorous fight to overcome
the sentiment which last night expressed itself by a vote of 111 to !��0
in favor of the perfection of an amendment to exclude Mongolians, Malays
and negroes. The speakers insisted
there should be no hasty action that
might embarrass the state department
in its relations with Japan.
Anti-Japanese  Forces.
The house was surcharged with excitement when it met and Representative Burnett In charge of the immigration bill, forced the attendance of a
quorum.    The    anti-Japanese    forces
rushed   action,  Representative   Baker
of California, presenting a substitute
for  a  pending  exclusion   amendment
introduced by  Representative Hayes.
The debate became heated, the Cali-
fornians   differing   as   to   details  but
I both   manifesting   certainly   that  the
amendment   would    be    accepted   ln
some form.
The bouse was in confusion with
half a dozen members vociferously demanding an opportunity to be heard,
when the tide was turned by Republican Leader Mann, who from the
centre of the cMmber, spoke In a
grave, low voice.
Delicate Question.
"I   have   been   long  enough   in   Uie
j house,   I   hope,   to   pb.ee   the  govern-
i ment above  party.    I  do  not believe
any of these  amendments  should  be
adopted   at   this   time.     Dealing  with
our   foreign   affairs   is   a   subject   ef
j delicacy   at   best.     While   1   do   no:
; have the greatest pride in the present
'state department  1  feel  that    in  conducting our relations    with    foreign
; countries.  1 am  bound  to  rely  in the
' first instance at least, upon the state
; department.    If they cannot eradicate
! the   difficulties   of   the   situation   by
diplomatic relations it is time enough
then  for congress  to act  by  specific
legislation.    I am not prepared to invite war with Japan or any other country, although if that war should come
as a result of any legislation, I would
not  shrink from  it."
The house listened in a hush of silence. Representative Mann turning
to  the   Republican  side  said:
"I think now is th" time for us to
be cool and collected, not to be carried off our feet because we think,
perchance, we can play politics at the
expense of the Democratic side of the
house. We owe an allegiance to our
country above our party."
Amendments Defeated.
Shouts  of approval  from   both  the
Democrats and Republicans drowned
tho speaker.
"We represent the entire country
and we ought to protect at this time,
even California against herself." he
finally concluded amid a tumult of
The debate continued, but when a
vote was forced the amendments were
decisively defeated.
Consideration of the bill was continued throughout the day, but no
amendments of material importance
were written into the measure. It
was agreed to allow the immigration
bill right of way tomorrow when it
wll' be passed.
He believes that neither from a
punitive nor preventative standpoint
it is justified and considers that it Is
a survival of barbaric times. "I am
prepared," he said, "to give to the
house fifty Inlstances in gocd old
Kngland where men ccnd?mned to
death and hanged were afterward
found to be innocent.
"The Bickerdikes are ail fairly

On the information given them by the delegation representing Columbian college on Monday evening, the members of the city council are facing, at a time when every
dollar counts, the alternative of making a grant to the
institution or of seeing it moved from New Westminster.
It is unfortunate that the case was presented to the council in that manner, for, if the grant is made, it will appear
to the general public more in the light of an inducement
to prevent the defection of an old institution of the city
than unprejudiced recognition of that institution's worth.
There is the possibility that the making or withholding of the grant asked by the college would not influence
its governing body in finally, determining for or against
New Westminster in the matter of a permanent location.
On that point, it seems, the council should be perfectly
clear before taking any action and a flat statement one
way or the other from the college authorities would be
the sole source of reliable information.
Since Columbian college became possessed of the property which it now occupies on Frist street, that land has
risen considerably in value and it may be that the branch
of the Methodist church which has the oversight of its
educational institutions is coming to the opinion that a
move to a less congested and therefore lower priced locality, whether in this city or elsewhere, would be following
a t-ound commercial principle.
If the grant is made for 1914 it practically will mean
the establishing by the city of a precedent for similar future concessions to the college and before that is done it
would be only good business on the part of the city council
to have satisfactory assurance from those in a position
to give it that Columbian college is permanently located
in New Westminster, an assurance which it would be most
gratifying to receive.
State Takes Novel  Method to Secure
Data on the High Cost of
Olympla, Wash.. Feb. ."..���Proprietors ot boarding and lodging houses
in all parts of the state who have received letters signed "Minnie Scott"
asking prices of board and room will
learn when the report of the industrial welfare commission is laid before tiie first minimum wage conference that the information they have
been furnishing was for use in the
cost of living probe carried on by investigators for the commission.
Advertisements of this general form
were a few- months ar.o carried in
practically all the daily newspapers
of the state:
"Wanted, board and room in a private family by a working girl, Address   .  giving   full   information."
If complete Information was not
furnished the proprietor got a letter
signed "Minnie Seott," asking fuller
particulars. In many cases personal
investigation of the class of accommodations offered was made.
After compiling tho prices offered
in all parts of the state it was found
that the replies for board and room
combined average $270.S2. Segregating the places listed the commission
finds that those offered ns "within
walking distance" of 16 to 20 minutes'

Mount Vernon, Wash., Feb. 3.���
Blows were struck and angry words
exchanged in the Mount Vernon
Christian church last Tuesday evening during the progress of a lecture
on Socialism by the Rev. Harry Ferguson, former mayor of Hoquiam. As
the result of the conflict two warrants
were Issued for C. E. Andreas, a local
contractor and a staunch Socialist.
While Ferguson was speaking, Andreas ls said to have interrupted him
and used Insulting language. Ixmis
Petelle, a fellow Socialist, attempted
to quiet Andreas, but the latter was
insistent and a fight followed between
the two. Andreas lost three false
teeth and was otherwise' damaged
about the face. He was arrested and
fined $1 and costs the following day.
Later Ferguson swore to a complaint
charging Andreas with disturbing the
peace. Andreas had a second hearing

Calgary, Feb. 3���That Alfred Cuddy,
chief constable of Calgary, and all
the members of the city police force
have no authority to arrest anyone
violating a bylaw of the city without
a warrant, owing to the fact that the
city council has never passed a bylaw giving them that authority, was
the  important  decision  handed  down
i by his honor Judge Winter in the
criminal district court at the adjourned case of Frank Molan, who was on
trial charged with assaulting Chief
Cuddy at a procession of unemployed
a few weeks ago.
I The case concluded before his
honor last Wednesday, but the judge
reserved his decision on the point of
law  as to whether Chief Cuddy  was
!a properly constituted police officer.
So Important is the decision regarded
that  Sergeant  Major  Vickery,  cf the
, R. N. W, M. P., was present in person to watch the case for the mount
ed police. J. MeKinley Cameron alsei
was present during most of the hearing but Chief Cuddy did not appear.
Judge Winter said he was not quite
clear what the charge was against the
accused. He might have been charged

fencing master, wilheim Hopf, who
is charged with having poisoned his
father, his first wife, and his two
children, and with attempting to
poison his mother and his second and
third wives, was resumed at Frankfort  today.
Evidence was given by the mother
of llopf's second wife, who after divorcing Hopf married again, but had
died from tuberculosis. She express
ed the conviction that her daughter
was infected with the tubercle bacillus by Hopf, who kept cultures of
these germs. The dead woman's second husband testified that enormous
quantities of bacilli were found in his
wife's lung, and the physicians could
not re-collect in many years' practice
a case in which the germs were pres
ent in such quantities.���Reuter,

Though few people are aware of
iin* fact, Calgary can claim the distinction a8 having as a resident th.
only white woman who ever visited
Grand Falls, at the head of the Grand
river, two hundred and fifty miles
from  the  bun-en const of  Labrador.
Miss Laurie Coatee came to Calgary in 19U9, and us the result of an
interview with Dr. Grenfell, the fam-
oub Labrador missionary, she decided to visit the land where few white
women have trod. She was born
mar Manchester, England, and left
her native land for the United States
nine years ago. After graduating as
a nurse from St. Timothy's hospital,
Philadelphia, she spent one year on
the prairies of Saskatchewan, then
went to Calgary, Alta.
She followed her profession in Cal-
gayy until Dr. Grenfell start, d his
series of lectures, which will bo remembered by many. After hearing
of the wonderful Labrador country
she decided to visit it, and left Calgary May 26, 1912, on a mission which
was to make her famous. Her first,
stopping place, on that wild coast wa*
Battle harbor, which was reached
about the end of June, after a trying
voyage and many heartrending de-
laj'B, The delays were caused by ice
m Belle Isle straits, the ship having
to make three attempts before managing to cover about 300 mill s ln
thi' ������  wicks.
Nurse in Hospital.
She remained In Battle harbor until September the same year and then
went up the Hamilton inlet lu Dr.
Grenfell's hoat "th" Strathcona," that,
was gifted to the mission bv the
great Scotch Canadian philanthropist
The Indian harbor hospiuil is transferred from its summer quarters i n

She  remained   with    the    fln-nf 11
.mission as trained nurse till the end
cf thi! following May, which completed the term of service for which she
bad  i Qgagi d,    it  was while she  was
With   the  mission   that Bhe  conceived
the idea of making an exploration of
; lhe   Grand   riv. r.    To  others   of   the
mission she was merely known as a
vi ry   capable   young   nurse,   and   not
until  slit  announced her intention of
I trying to make the falls was she bub-
! pccted of having any of the ambition
ef   l!;e  explorer.     Some  tried   to  dis-
18bade here from the undertaking but
.the   fancy   had   sized   her   and   she
'engaged the services of Fred Qoudle,
a native white guide.
Meagre Accommodation.
From the mission she went to the
North. West river and put up at the
Hudson's Hay post while making fin-
1 al arrangements for the trip into the
Interior. There are no hotels in that
country and the intrepid traveller
has to rely on the hospitality of the
traders for accommodation. Miss
Coates could have sent out for a proper equipment from New York, but
the delay wculd have been too great
and she wanted to make the trip im-
in dlately after the break of the Ice.
She leathered together the necessiry
outfit through the assistance and
kindness of traders and natives of
the district.
Starts for the Falls.
Obtaining the canoe that Dillon
iWa'.lac. had used on his expedition
to find and mark the grave of I.eon*
idas Hubbard, she fitted it out with
ih<!t.*r tents, j revisions and rifles,
to the use of which she had become
accustomed, and the two set out on
their journey. A remarkable feature
of the trip was that she had never
been in a canoe bt fore and had never shot a living creature until fourteen months ago. In the interior the;
explorer relies greatly on game and
bird; for a change of diet and she
personally shot partridge*, ducks and
other game fowl.
The   Labrador rains came on, but
Miss t'oates had always been an outdoor v.iil and did not mind the vet-
tings. They carried no compasses,
the guide relying on his knowledge*
of the country, lie had told her that
he knew of a short cut to the falls,
which no white man had tried, and it
was this route t ley followed. They
wound their way through a maze of
lakes, pitching their shelter tents on
tho  banks at night.
What would have proved a most
disturbing Incident occurred one
niieht, liable to upset even the strongest nerves, but Miss Coates took it
merely as a joke. While in her tent
she was awakened by a black bear
whose muzzle almost touched her
face. Instinctively she thought of
her rifle but at once remembered it
was in the canoe. She thought of
calling the guide but then reaiiznl
that she was not afraid of bean any
how and with an essentially feminini
"shoo" she scared llruin away, then
turned over and was again sound
Disappointed in Falls,
At last they came to the end of the
water route and the guide said the
falls were nearly in sight. They
abandoned the canoe and within forty minutes sighted the eascad". The
overland trip was made on foot and
all the time the roar of the cataracts
could be heard, but Miss Coates says
she was disappoint d in tht in when
she filially arrived at the eascadi s.
At a little distance they made a noiss
like Niagara, but view dispelled that
Illusion. Having ^accomplished hoi'
mission, after leaving proof that she
really had been on the spot, she
commenced the return journey, The
return trip was entirely without Incident. Mies Coatee do s not know
the exact distance she travelled, but
estimates it at 300 miles.
She hopes to make another trip.
She has already addressed the Women's Canadian Club of Winnipeg,
and hi r trip has been described mosl
fully in many United States papers
when she returned to New York after
making  the great trip.
No Suffragettes There.
She draws a vivid picture of the
life of the pecpls who live on the
barren coast. "There are no suffragettes in Labrador," she said with
a laugh, "Probably this is so because
of the fact that neither men nor women have the Suffrage���there is no
representative for Labrador in the
Newfoundland parliament."
One could gather that the volunteer worker has to be most versatile.
She related one experience she had
in caring for a little girl smitten with
typhoid. She acted as elector and
nurse, but despite the greatest attention the little one died. Miss Coates
prepared the body for b'iria!,. helped
dig the grave and as the minister was
far awav. the volunteer read the bur
ial service.
Arc   Very   Rich,
The peopi" on the Labrador have
no newspapers or concerts, and must
make tin ir own amusements, whiab
they do in pinner style, The trappers
who live e.p the 'nl ts and who make
from $500 to $1,000 are extremely
Hch, because living expenses are so
cheap.    Asked  if she was net afraid
while travelling in this wild country
with only on guide, sbe exclaim* d,
"afraid! Why, there is nothing to
be afra.d of.   Everyone there showed

and   their  coureesy  and  help  is  one '

Taxes are a superior lien upon all mortgaged property. Real
estate may be sold for taxes,
leaving the careless holder of a
bond and mortgage with no security. Insurance may be allowed to lapse; then, should a
fire occur the mortgage holder
has only the bare ground security. Methodical attention
absolutely averts these dangers.
The maker of the mortgage
may default in his interest payments. Here again experience,
and skill are needed to properly
conduct a foreclosure. Much
money has been lost and many
titles have been impaired
through lack of skill and re-
perience in such  matters.

for Local Fans on Thursday,

after   strenuous   objections   made   by
Hugh Lehman, the puck was faced off
near the Westminster goal.   It appears
that  the  puck  glanced  off  Lehman's
i shoulder to the goal umpire and then
i fell Into the net. Taylor made amends
. by going through In quick order, but
. the call was answered by Mallen, Tobin. Oatman and  McDonald.    Tobln's
goal   was  cf a   fluky  nature, Charlie
) lifting the puck from centre ice which

Ottawa, Feb. 3.���"We are not satisfied witli the condition of th: theatre

you what they choose and who are not

denly become all British, and who
very frequently are not British at all;
and stars who are one week born in

So declared Martin Harvey, the
eminent British actor, who is in Ottawa. His hope is an organization
embracing Canada, Australia, New
Zealand, India and South Africa, so
that a theatrical company wlll be able
to start from London, playing continuously all around the world under
the Unloa Jack. "I call that a splen-

It Is Service That Backs Up
Advertising Most Successfully
In a very real sense every business is a
public service enterprise. A man who supplies commodities to a community, whether
that community is a neighborhood, a city, or
the whole country, prospers only in so far
as he subserves the interests of his patrons.
This sounds elementary, but an amazing
number of men are ignoring this doctrine
in actual practice.
In the past few years the public has
been swinging to this view of not only
largo enterprises, like railroads and public
utility corporations, but of smaller institutions. The merchant, large or small, who
does not sense the full meaning of this
changed viewpoint is doing himself serious
injustice and is "in" for many a harassing
That the more progressive business
men everywhere are becoming more fully
aware of their public service functions is
shown by such phrases as these which are
occurring in greater and greater numbers
in advertisements: "Our store is your
store." "We pay the clerks for your service." It is only by fully satisfying you that
they can satisfy us."
Many a business that is selling excellent
goods and observing all the conventional
rules of good merchandising is falling short
of its greatest success just because the directing intelligence fails to comprehend this
profoundly significant fact of business as a
public service. Regarding the public as a
body that exists for his convenience, the
manager keys his whole enterprise accordingly. Some day he wakes up to the sorrowful fact that for some reason or other he is
"out of tune."
A vivid understanding of his true position as a director of a Public Service Enterprise will enable anyone who is now groping
for the mysterious reason which will explain
his lack of complete success to clarify his
problem, will energize the business anew
and will raise unsatisfatcory service���and
perhaps goods��� that lose buyers into satisfactory service that keeps buyers and adds
to them still others.
Advertising that is reinforced by a
dynamic policy of public service is unassailable. It is practically competition proof,
given a measure of experience and judgment in direction.
with her mother, calls at the youth's
house,   this   young   gentleman   is   in-1
visible,   though   he   probably   has    a I
peephole from which he inspects the
veiled   maiden,  though   they  are  not
supposed to see each other until the
day of formal betrothal by the Mullah.
The surreptitious glimpse may, however,  be   quite  sufficient  for him  to
say of her:    "Her face Is like the full
moon and she waddles like a goose,"
or "She has made roast meat of me
and all goes extremely well."
When marriage takes place she becomes her husband's chattel, and the
man consoles himself by the knowledge that he can have tour legal
wives under the Mahometan law.
Divorce is quite easy, for all he has
to do is to say three times: "1 divorce'

Book Evolution.
"Books"    have   progressed   from
trn days when they were only wooden  rodB or bits  of  bark.    For   tbe^
derivation    which   connects   "book"
directly with "beech,"   both   having
been "boc" in   Anglo-Saxon,   is   tho
favorite    one.      "Buchstaben,"    the
German word for letters ot the alphabet,     means     literally     "beech
staves."    Many book words go back
to such vegetable origin.    The tatin

papyrus.       The      Greek      "bimon."
���whence   "Bible"   and   "bibliophile,"
meant   much   the   same   thing.     A
"codex" was a  block of wood, and
"leaf" is obvious.

Damaging  Evidence in Trial of Hans
Schmidt, Former Priest Accused
of Murder.
New York, Feb. 3.���Hans Schmidt,
the former priest on re-trial for thr
murder of Anna Aumuller, sought to
have another woman Insure her life
for a largo amount under the name
of Anna Aumtllljr and gave her $36 to
tie placed to the credit of his victim
with a savings bank, according to
testimony today.
'I his surprise was launched by the
prosecuUon when Miss Bertha Zech,
formerly the maid of Dr. Ernest A.
Muvct, Schmidt's friend and alleged
counterfeiting accomplice, appeared
on the witness stand. Miss Zech, who,
according to Assistant District Attorney Dtlehanty, "had been spirited
away to New Jersey and had been
brought to New York only after much
���coaxing,'" figured in the trial for the
first time.
Mr. Delehanty said he regarded
Miss /Cecil's testimony as proof of the
prosedition's claim that Schmidt had
planned to murder Anna Aumuller
early in 1913 and that his intention
to insure the life of tho girl showed
"cold blooded" premeditation.
