Geneva. April 19. When Edftti Caveil was executed in Belgium by
the Germans, a girl friend, Miss Julia Wyss, aged 20 years, of Geneva, was

A petition for a pardon, signed by 3,000 women of Geneva, was sent
to the crown princess of Germany nearly a year ago. A cold, almost
brutal, reply signed by Baron von Stulpenzel, secretary to the crown
princess, has just been received. It states briefly that the petition cannot
