Crime and Also . Ten
Burglaries N jt a r
Washington, Aug. 6. The ring
stolen from the mutilated body of
Mrs. Gertrude Harrison Mann, di
vorced wife of William B. Mann of
Chicago today led to the identifica
tion of the murderer, William Henry
Campbell, a negro 22 year old.
Campbell made a full confession
which included not only the murder
and robbery of Mrs. Mann last
March, but a. list of 10 burglaries in
and near Washington. The rinj
which he tore from Mrs. Mann's
finger was recovered from a colored
girl in Baltimore to whom he had
gif en it. , v
The story of the murder of Mrs.
Mann was brought out while the
negro was( being questioned 'by the
police concerning other crimes
which he admitted following his ar
rest here a few days ago. He broke
down and made a detailed confes
sion. ' ,
He rode out to the scene of the
crime on the afternoon of March 11
last he said, with the definite inten
tion of intercepting and robbing the
firs woman who might cross
through Cleveland park to the Con
necticut avenue car line. He walked
across the Calvert street bridge ad
entered th: woods, picking up as he
went, the charred stick afterwards
found near his victim's body.
Mrs. Mann was the first one to
come along. Campbell said he se
creted himself in some bushes until
she was near and suddenly attacked
her She put up a fight, he de
clared, and he knocked her down
with the piece 'of wood. Even after
she had been knocked down Mrs.
Mann continued her efforts to pro
ject herself, Campbell stated, and
he dealt her another blow with the
club, which rendered her uncon
scious. He took what cash he found
in her handbag and removed her
watch and ring.
He returned to his home in Wash
ington, remained three days, and
then wetft to Baltimore. He said he
did not know Mrs. Mann was dead
until he read ihe story in the papers
the following day.

Reds' Reply to Great Britain
Says They Favor Armistice
London, Aug. 6. Leo Kamenec of
the Russian soviet delegation here
sent Premier Lloyd George last
night a long communication giving
the soviet government's reply to
Great Britain's note of Tuesday with
regard to the delay in the armistice
negotiations between Russia and
M. Kameneff's statement declares
the soviet government never desired
to combine the negotiations for an
armistice with negotiations for peace,
but that it demands that the terms
of the armistice include reasonable
guarantees which w.ould prevent at
tempts on the part of Poland to use
the period of the armistice forthe
renewal ofiostile acts.
Seek Only Guarantees.
The sole obstacle in the way of
the beginning of negotiations for the
suspension of JTnilitary operations,
says the note, is the absence of the
Polish delegates, whose return is
being awaited by the representatives
of the soviet government in order
that negotiations, may be immedi-;
ately opened. i -v '
The note continues: '
"The Russian soviet government
again declares that' it is firm in the
recognition of the freedom and in
dependence of Poland and its will
ingness to grant to the Polish state
wider frontiers than were indicated
by the supreme council and men
tioned in the British note of
July 20."
Seek Direct Negotiations. , .
With regard to the proposed Lon-5
don peace conference, the note says
in substance that the soviet govern
ment had proposed that the confer
ence be only with the leading pow
ers of the entente because the use
fulness of such a conference arose
from the fact that without the as
sistance of the leading powers war
could not be waged by other states
against Russia, and so the peace of
Europe would be guaranteed.
The Karrieneff statement con
tinues: "We are still of the opinion that
direct negotiations with Poland for
peace would serve the interest both
of the Russian and Polish peoples."
The conference in London be
tween Russia and the leading pow
ers of the entente, says the com
munication," would have' for its ob
ject the regularization of the inter
national position of Russia and the
settlement of all outstanding ques
tions between it and the allies, ior
the benefit of general peace."
Want Poles to Disarm.
The guarantees the soviet desires
that Poland will not use the armis
tice oeriod for a renewal of hostility
it is set forth, include its partial dis
armament .and cessation of the re
cruiting of conscript soldiers as well
as voluntary "enrollments.
M. Kameneit also reiers to his in
terview with Premier Lloyd George
and states that he forwarded to the
soviet government the premier's
statement with regard to the de
cision of the British government to
side with Poland and to renew tne
blockade in consequence of the in
vasion of ethnographical Poland by
the troops of the. soviet govern
ment." .

Does Not Want Question of
Peace or War Decided by
Council of Foreign
Marion, O., Aug. 6.--A plea that
future questions of peace and war be
decided by the nation's conscience
and not by any council of foreign
powers was voiced by Senator Har
ding yesterday in a talk to a Spanish
war veteran's reunion,
i "Here in America," he said, "we
do not need any one to tell us what
our obligation is. We can read it in
our own conscience. I want to hold
the American conscience strictly and
solely American.
, "I want America to play its part In
the world, but I do not want a coun
cil of foreign powers at any time, for
any. reason, to summon the sons of
America to battle.". .
It was a national spirit awakening
to the defense of American rights,
the nominee asserted, that lead this
country into both the Spanish war
and the world war, and that always
could be counted on to hold the re
public secure. He -added that al
though underlying consideration of
humanity had urged the United
States into both conflicts, it had re
quired political infringements into
national rights to start the flame of
The visit to the reunion came neafl

nominee almost entirely to corre

he canvassed carefully from informa
