INQUEST FAILS TO
IN MURDER CASE
Jury in Christine Anderson
'Slaying Finds ,Aged Victim
Met Death at Hands of Un
The testimony adduced ai the in
quest before the jury summoned by
County Attorney Magney failed to
throw any light .on the mystery sur
rounding the murder vf "Mrs. Chris
tine Anderson, aged 75 years, in her
home, 4236 Corby x street, Saturday
The verdict fails to implicate any
person in the commission of the
crime. The finding was that the-vic
tim came to her death at .the hand of
some person unknown. t
The inquest was conducted by
Deputy County Attorney Piatti and
was held at the undertaking rooms of
Cole & McKay. The jurors were:
Adolrh. Harm, Peter . Ault.,-.W FJ
Dinney: Captain VMalliason, Fred
Brunning and John C Visiard.
HEAD PARTIALLY SEVERED.
' Dr. Samuel McCleneghan, physician"
for the countyf.attorney,. testified to
the examination of the-body of Mrs.
Anderson. He found a contusion
over the left cheek, two "deep cuts
along the left jaw, each about two
inches long, and a ragged cut from
slightly below the left ear, extending
across the throat, severing the jugu
lar vein, and the windpipe. I
This was about one and one-half
inches deep, and, in his opinion, pro
duced almost instant death. He also
found a contusion on the right jaw,
several on the hands and on the
breast. - -
The . physician testified that Mrs.
Anderson's throat was- cut with- a
knife and the contusions were the
result of blows struck with some
blunt instrument. ,
John Stemle, 4211 Corby street, 600
feet west of the Anderson home, had
known Mrs. Anderson ten or, eleven
years and was certain that she did "not

Wovfght,War Over Again if Peace
uan 't Rely
Washington, Aug. 28. President WilsofVs letter an
swering Pope Benedict's peace note sent to the pontiff
today is as follows: I
"To His Holiness, Benedict XV, Pope:
"In acknowledgement of the communication of Your
Holiness to the belligerent peoples, dated August 1,
1917, the president of the United States requests me to
transmit the following reply:
"Every heart that has not been blinded and hard
ened by this terrible war must be touched by this mov
ing appeal of His Holiness, the pope,' must feel the
dignity and force of the humane and generous motives
which prompted it, and must fervently wish that we
might take the path of peace he so persuasively points
out. But it would be folly to take it if it does not in
fact lead to the goal he proposes. ,' Our response must
be based upon the stern facts and upon nothing else.
It is not a mere cessation of arms he desires; it is i
stable 'and enduring, peace. This agony must not be
gone through with again, and it must be a matter of
sober judgment judgment what will insure us
PROPOSES ANTE BELLUM STATUS QUO.
"His Holiness In substance proposes that we return 7
to the status quo ante bellum and that then there be
a general condonation, disarmament and a concert of
nations, based upon an acceptance of the principle of
arbitration; that by a similar corfcert freedom of the
seas and that the territorial claims of France and Italy,
the perplexing problems of the Balkan states and the
restitution of Poland be leit to such conciliatory ad
justments as may be possible in the new temper of
such a peace, due regard being paid to the aspirations
of the peoples whose political fortunes and affiliations
will be involved.
: "It is manifest that no part of this program can be
successfully carried out unless the restitution of the ,
status quo ante furnishes a firm and satisfactory basis
, for it The object of this war is to ' deliver the free
peoples of. the world from the menace and the actual
power of a vast military establishment controlled by
an irresponsible government which, having secretly
planned to dominate the world, proceeded to carry the
plan out without regard either to the sacred obligations
of treaty or the long established practices and long
cherished principles of international action and honor;
which chose its own time for war; delivered its blow
fiercely and suddenly; stopped at no barrier either of
law or of mercy; swept a whole continent within the
tide of blood not' the blood of soldiers only, but the
blood of innocent women and children also, and of the
helpless poor; and now stands balked, but not de
feated, the nemy of four-fifths of the world. This
power is not the German people. It is no business of
- ours how that great people came under its control or
submitted with temporary rest to the domination of
its purpose; but it it our business to see to it that his
tory of the rest of the world is no longer left to its
' : MEANS HOSTILE COMBINATTIO. I
.. To deal with -such a-yower by way Of peace tipon "
the plan proposed by Hhr Holiness, the pope, would,
so far as we can see, involve a recuperation of-its
strength and a renewal of its policy; would make it
necessary to create a permanent hostile combination
of nations against the German people, who are its in
struments; and would result in abandoning the new-

Washington,- Aug. 28. In resum
ing consider-tidn today of postage
sections of the war tax bill the senate,
by a vote of 39 to 29, struck out the
provision levying a 1-cent tax on let
ters and postcards designed to' raise
$50,000,000 in revenue. A provision
giving American soldiers and sailors

Excess Profits Tax.
In an effort 10 effect a compromise
on the question of higher war profits
taxes the finance committee majority
gave further consideration to the sub-
stitution of the house excess profits
scheme of calculating war profits
based on capitalization instead of net
profits and allowing an exemption of
8 per cent plus, $5,000.
Those favoring the proposal argue
that it would bring in more revenue
and remove many of the alleged in

Houston Board Begins
Investigation Into Riot
Houston,' Tex., Aug. 28. the city
of Houston today began what Acting
Major D. M. Moody terms the de
velopment of the "real story" of the
horror of last Thursday night, when
100' negro- soldiers of, the Twenty
fourth infantry rampaged through the
west end shooting down fifteen whites
and losing two of their own number.
The board of inquiry appointed by
Moody held its first session and be

Pope Were Accepted Now;
on Kaiser and His Advisers
born Russia to the intrigue, the manifold subtle inter
ference, and the certain counter revolution which would
be attempted by all the malign influences to which the
German government has of late accustomed the world.
Can peace be based upon a 'restitution of its power or
upon any word of honor it would pledge in a treaty of
settlement and accommodation?
"Responsible statesmen must now everywhere see,
if they ntver saw before, that no peace can rest se
curely upon political or economic restrictions meant to
benefit ome nations and cripple or embarrass others,
upon vindictive action of any sort j or any kind of re
venge or deliberate injury. The American people have
suffered intolerable wrongs at the hands of the Imperial
German government but they desire no reprisal upon
the German people, who have themselves suffered all
things in this war, which thy did not choose. They
believe that peace should rest upon the rights of peo
ples, not the rights of governments the rights of peo
ples great or small, weak or powerful theil equal right
to freedom and security and self-government and to a
participation, upon fair terms, in the economic prospects
of the world the German people of course included,
if they will accept equality and not seek domination.
SEEKS BASIS OF PLAN.
"The test therefore, of every plan of peace is this:
Is it based upon the faith of al lthe peoples involved or
merely upon the word of an ambitious and Intriguing
government on the one hand, and of a group of free
peoples on the other? This is a test which goes to the
root of the matter; and it is the test which must be
"The purposes of the United States in this war are
known to the whole world to every people to whom
the truth has Been permitted to come. They do nbt
need to be stated again. We seek no material advan
tage of any kind. We believe that the intolerable
wrongs d oenin this war by the furious and brutal
Eower of the Imperial German government ought to
e repaired, but not athe expense of the sovereignty
of any people rather a vindication of the sovereignty
both o fthose that are weak and those that are strong.
Punitive damages, the dismemberment of empires, the
establishment of selfish and exclusive economic leagues,
we deem inexpedient and in the end worse that futile
no proper basis for a peace of any kind, least of all for
an enduring peace. That must be based upon justice
and fairness and the common rights of mankind.
CANT TAKE KAISER'S WORD.
"We cannot take the word of the present rulers
of Germany as a guarantee of anything that js to en
dure unless explicitly supported by such conclusive evi
dence of the will and purpose of the German people
themselves as the other peoples of the world would be
justified in accepting. Without such garantees, treaties
oi settlement agreements for disarmament covenants
to set up arbitration in the place of force, territorial
adjustments, reconstitutions of small nations, if made
jwith the German srovernmea no man, to nation crfuld -now
depend on. We must await some new evidence of
the purposes of the great peopls of the central pow
era, God grant it may be given loon and in a way to
restore the confidence of all peoples everywhere in the
faith of nations and the possibility of a covenanted
peace. ROBERT LANSING,
