NEW BRUNSWICK. N. J.. Nov. 1.
(By the Associated Press.) Mrs.
Prances Stevens Hall today gave
her first Interview an interview
planned by her counsel so that she
might seek to extricate herself, in
tho public eye, from the circum
stantial net In which the unfolding
of the Hall-Mills murder mystery
has enmeshed her.

made a widow by the slaying of the

At the end she retired as she had
entered the room, wan but composed.
She had shed no light on the mys
tery. She had fallen into none of
the traps the cross-examiners pre
pared for her. Hers was a negative
story. It amplified but did not ma
terially alter the statements previ
ously made on her behalf by counsel
Briefly, it was that Dr. .nail had
started out to his doom, saying he
was going on an errand of mercy
to discuss with Mrs. Mills a hospital
bill, which he was paying with
church funds; that ha was slain by
a person and for a motive of which
she has not the slightest conjecture;
and that her memory of him is un
sullied by the ugly scandal in which
his name has been involved.
It was half past two o'clock when
Timothy N. Pfieffer, Mrs. Hall's
lawyer, escorted her into the quaint,

For an hour then one reporter

With the national congressional

confident of victory at the polls
Although keeping the party fires

that the actual battle is over, and

by democratic chieftains are not dis

men, who - declare that the most
careful canvass of the situation In
contested states does not warrant a
pessimistic view from their stand

admit that the democrats may gain
some house seats in New York, Ohio,
Indiana, and perhaps. New Jersey,
With a few scattering . gains else
where, but they insist that the
nouse win remain republican by a
majority of at least 50.
John T. Adams, chairman pf the
republican national committee, said

found on an abandoned railroad
track near Dublin, Mich., virtually
nude and critically ill, Raymond

and made a confession to abduct
ing and attacking the child.
Wilson was captured in Grand
Rapids tonight after posses had
scoured the country In the neigh
borhood where the girl was found
and had traced him to his home.
Violence Is Prevented.
He was brought back to Muske
gon in an automobile, which also
carried deputies who questioned
him iilosely throughout the return
trip. This delayed the arrival in
Muskegon and in all probability
prevented mob violence because.
when the sheriffs party reached
Muskegon, the streets were prac
In a statement to officials, Wil
son confessed that he had gone to
Muskegon Friday night to visit Mr.
and Mrs. Archer, 533 Easton street,
with whom he spent the night.
'. He had planned to attend a dance
at a roadh'ouse near Muskegon Sat
urday night, he Said, but returned
to the town when he found that
the house was closed. On the re
turn trip he passed Rosalie In front
of the roller skating rink and point
ing her out to Mr. and Mrs. Archer,
said: "There's a little girl I used
to have a lot of fun with at the
bathing beach last summer." He
then asked her to take a ride in
the car, but she refused.
Mysterious Woman Met.
Sunday morning he met a mys
terious woman at the corner of
Ottawa avenue and Easton street
The woman told him, he said, that
her daughter, a chum of Rosalie's,
was sick, and asked him to bring
the little girl to her there, he said.
He then met Lloyd and William
Fix, 12 and 14 years old, who
showed him to the Shanty house,
he declared, where he learned that
the child was at Sunday school.
Driving to the church, he met the
Boys Identify Wilson.
The two Fix boys identified him
as the man who took Rosalie away
in an' automobile, and if the girl

Wilson is characterized by the
police as a degenerate.
Rosalie was found by Joseph
preeski, a farmer.- She wore no
underwear and no hat, only a little
dress, which had been torn to rib
bons. She was completely dazed
and could tell nothing of her ex

ducted her. -

The little girl' is in a serious con

are entertained. She is believed to
have wandered for more than 24
hours alone in the waste land before
she was found. Dr. Earl Fairbanks,
who attended her, says that she had
been attacked many times, and that
these, complicated by the rigorous
exposure through which she has
gone, have brought about a serious
condition, one from which she may
not recover. Once during ' a lucid
interval, when questioners pressed
her for information, she smiled a
little smile and said: "He even threw
me into the water. I guess he
wanted to drown me. but I could
swim oo good for that."
Then when she was pressed for
more details, she slipped away Into
a dead faint again.

Hermlone of Reuss and William are
Count von Moltke, who fills the
office of "marshall" of William's
tiny court, curtly refused today to
give any information whatever re
garding the arrangements for the
wedding. That certain discrimina
tion is to be exercised, seems to have
been shown by the fact that. George
Sylvester Viereck. well known as a
German-American publicist, arrived
here a few days ago and dined with'
William at the ex-emperor's special
invitation. The Dutch authorities
are equally as secretive as the mem
bers of William's entourage.
Rumors Are Numerous.
There are a number of rumors
afloat which it has been impossible
to verify. Included among them is
one to the effect that Princess Her
mione has never left Doom castle
since her arrival there and will only
leave for the sake of appearan'ces
next Saturday, returning on Sanda.V;

that ex-Crown Prince Frederick
William will arrive here tomorrow?
