O KITED riUSS UDABRD WIE
Plymouth, Mass., Oct. 25. That Ad
luiral Joseph Giles Eaton not only died
bv his own hand, but took the life of
thoir adopted baby as well, was the tes
timony offered in her own defense here
today by Mrs. Jennie May Baton, ac
cused of her husband's murder. Mrs
Eaton recited her story in a calm and
even voice, beginning with her mar
ria.ro to her first husband, who, she
safd also drank heavily.
"After 1 left mv first husband," she
said, "I studied nursing and finally se
cured a position to nurse the Admiral's
first wife. The admiral drauk so heav
ily even then that he was unable to at
tond his wife's funeral.
"Later I acted as the admiral's
housekeeper. Then we came to Massa
chusetts and took a cottage at Hull.
We married at Hull. As the admiral's
drinking increased, I decided to get
him away from club life. The bills
poured in nnd we decided to go to the
His Mad Nature.
"The first time I noticed the admir
al's mad and passionate nature was
when I was having somo dresses made
for nne, my oldest daughter. Sho stood
before us in short skirts and with bare
arms. Suddenly the admiral jumped
from his chair and clasped her in his
arms agnin and again."
Mrs. Eaton then described another af
fair. "The admiral on this occasion,"
she stiiil, "acted as if he did not know
what lie was doing and 1 don't believe
Murdor of Baby Boy.
"Then wo moved to Sand Hills and
lived at the beach. A few weeks later
we adopted a beautiful baby. One day
we all went in bathing. 1 left the baby
asleep at tho cottage. When I returned
I found the admiral coining from the
house. He wns adjusting a collar but
ton, and stared at mo with wild ami
apparently unseeing eyes. 1 hurried to
tho baby and picked him up. He began
vomiting and I rushed for a doctor. 1
offered him $1000 if he saved the
child's life, but he couldn't."

RECALL OF STOLZ IS
Several Salem citizens have today
signed a petition remonstrating
against the recall of Councilman Stolz,
of the Third ward. The following is
the resolution, and the list of signers:
"Wo, the uudorsigned, wish publicly

"We consider the recall as an in
strument to be used only in extreme

"In the case of Mr. Stolz, whose

against a man of unquestionable in

Administration at Washington
Realizes Tyrant Will Stick
TO TREAT WITH REBELS
In Case Huerta- Is Elected Sunday
Wilson Will Send Representative
to Confer With Enemies.
UNITED PM88 LE1SBD Will.
Washington, Oct. 25. It was clear to
the administration today that General
Huerta will remain dictator of Mexico
until he is deposed forcibly. No offici
al announcement was mado that the ad
ministration held this view, but every
one knew it.
President Wilson unquestionably
will bo overjoyed if the Mexican reb
els can overthrow Huerta. In case the
latter is elected Sunday, it was a foro-,
gone conclusion that Wilson will send
areprosentative to confer with the
robol leaders. Should the olection prove
invalid, through the failure of any can
didate to secure a majority, the samo
course will be pursued.
After promising definitely not to be
a candiduto and declaring subsequent
ly thatho would not accept the pres
idency, even if elected, Huorta saw
to it that his name was at tho head of
his own ticket on the official ballots
sent out today.

Owing to the resignation of State
Bank Examiner Albert, who has been
appointed a national bank examiner, it
became necessary to appoint his suc

this morning, selected 8. G. Sargent, at
present employed in the U. S. National

is a splendid oiie, as Mr. Sargent is
thoroughly equipped by his years of ex
perience in the banking business to fill
the place fully. About the only per
