Soldiers Can Write Folly But
News Concerning Them
By W. 8. Forrest.
(United Press staff correspondent.)
PariB, June 17. (By mail ) Infor
mation relative to the individual mem
bers of the American expeditionary
force in France will not be permitted
in the news cables. The general staff
announced today that such news must
be transmitted to the ioiks at nome
by the officers and men themselves, not
by the newspapers.
The fighters will be encouraged to
write fully and often to those who arc
interested in them. This mail will pass
through a lenient military censorship
and upon its arrival in America may
bo given out to the newspapers by the
relatives or friends.
Tho only exception to the general
staff's ruling, according to plans out
lined today will be in event of excep
tional eases where individual acts of
bravery or devotion to duty may pos
sibly be communicated to tnc press 01
ficiallv at a later time. This will not
happen, however, until American troops
have been actually under fire.

Sheriff Ricks of San Joaquin county,
two or three Mexicans accused of kill

the Mineral Products company, are safe
in the Stockton jail today.
Anderson, his wife, and Henry
Schmidt were walking 011 tho street
when throe Mexicans, all strangers, ap
peared. After Schmidt had taken a
knife from one, a Mexican drew a re
volver and opened fire. Anderson was
killed and Schmidt and Mrs. Anderson
narrowly escaped. '
An angered crowd pursued the Mexicans-
One member of the trio was
wounded and a second was captured. A
crowd of 250 formed around the jail and
while local authorities pleaded with
the mob to disperse, Sheriff- Ricks was
summoned from Stockton.
Before Kicks arrived and finally
quieted the mob, the jail had been fired
and saved from burning only by strenu
ous efforts of local authorities.

Changes Are Denied.
One of the earlv developments of the
session was the reading by counsel fol
Dr. Wilson of a letter from E. K. Coop
er, of Chicago, chairman of the trans
portation committee of the Methodist
Episcopal church, in which he declared
he knew the circumstances of the last
charge and that the charge was with
While this was being explained, Mr.
McCain arose and Said he would with
draw the charge
Two men very prominent in Method
ism, it also developed at the hearing,
have crossed the continent from New
York to take the stand if need be in
behalf of Dr. Wilson.
One of them, the Rev. F. D. Law
yer, pastor of the Methodist church of
Syracuse, N. Y., did take the stand. His
testimony was a bombshell.
Syracuse Pastor Testified.
He testified that in Fort Plain, X.
Y., on October 24, 1915, Mr. McCain
had introduced to him as Mrs. McCain a
woman who, he since had reason to be
lieve, was not his wife.
Rev. Mr. Lawyer said last night,
supplementary to his testimony, that
if Mr. McCain wished to prove his in
nocence and worthiness to be a worker
in Methodism, he should now produce
Mrs. McCain at the hearing.
Mrs. McCain was not present at the
hearing yesterday. In an authorized
statement from Salem, however, she
has declared that she is "heart and
soul with her husband."
The procedure by which the de
fendant in the case, Dr. Wilson, became
the plaintiff, furnished one of the big
surprises of the many surprises 01 the
day. It oceurred almost at the outset
of the hearing.
Accused Gains by AdmisrSon.
Under the provisions of the Metho
dist church discipline in ft case where
charges are lying and defamation of
character," the accused, if he admits he
made the statements to which excep
tion is taken, can take the opening and
closing, to prove that the statements
he made are true, and thus put the ac
cuser on the defensive.
This is exactly what happened at the
trial. Dr. Wilson admitted that he had
made the statements against Mr. Mc
Cain on which the latter based his alle
gations of Iving and defamation of
character. Thus, under the provisions
of the church discipline, he had the
opening and closing of the case, and it
became incumbent on Mr. McCain to
He made vigorous objection to the
ruling on this point made as indicated,
by Rev. William Wallace Youngson. dis

judge. Dr. Youngson overruled the ob
jection. Truth. Is Point at Issue. . ,

whieh these two charges are based, aild
Mr. McCain has withdrawn the third
charge, alleging a violation of law, the
truth of the statements made Dy ur.
Wilson lias beeomo the sole point at
Two letters written by Dr. Wilson to
Mrs. McCain, on which Mr. McCain has
declared that he bases his charges of
defamation of character, were intro
duced in evidence by Dr. Wilson him
self. Dr. Wilson said he had written these
letters in reply to a request by Mrs
McCain for his opinion in regard to
divorce proceedings she contemplated
bringing against her husband. The let
ters were written in November and De
cember, Interstate Trips Mentioned.
One' of the letters, read before the
ministers constituting the tribunal aid
dated November 11. was as follows:
"Mis. H. O. McCain, 702 North Four
teenth street, Salem, Ore. Dear Mrs.
MeCnin: Mrs. Wilson and I, as soon as
our campaign was over in Omaha, went
to Kansas City, saw the United States
District Attorney, and there is no doubt
that Mr- McCain could be 'put over
the road' for the interstate trips he
had taken with various women.
"We, however, started nothing of
that kind, being more anxious to help
vou than to see him get what he de
serves. We learned that there are
five division proctors appointed by
the court to look into the merits of
various applicants, and we were di-j
reeted to a prominent attorney nowi
filling this office by the name o'f Glen
Sherman, 727 Sarrito building, Kansas
City, who is a lawyer, a temperance
man. and said he would look into the
case after I had given him all the facts
aDout Air. .uciain, wnere n m un"s
and whom he is living with, and made
clear to him that you had not forsaken
him. but that he had abandoned you.
"I then got your telegrams that you
had employed John W. Davis and went
to see hiin and fonnd that he was
absolutely uninformed on the kind of
case it was, and not very well inform
ed on law points involved.
Alimony Not Desired.
"He was talking about getting ali-
imony for yon, which is just what yon
j do not want, for it implies giving Mr.
! McCain the divorce which he ought not
!to be allowed to secure and most not

i thev needed me- If Mr. McCain eould
be threatened enough to bring him to
his senses it might be that he woiiirt

divorce, for that is for life.

Complaints in Evidence. :-
In the second letter to Mrs. McCain
written December 29, 1916, Dr. Wilson
advised Mrs. McCain to get a divorce
from Mr. McCain, if necessary, but to
get in "in the easiest way posisble,
without making a lot of newspaper
fuss." He Baid he gave her this advice
on account of her child.
Quantities of documentary evidence
were introduced. Anjong these were
copies of the divorce complaint, charg
ing desertion, brought by Mr. McCain
against his wife and her answer and
