U was his imperial rescript of Aug. 24, 1898, which summoned the conference thaat met at The Hague in May of the following year. Fought Burden on Backs of iPeople The very summons itself caused a tremendous sensation, for the Czar, the greatest autocrat of his day, denounced war in round terms as a destroyer of civilization and the cause of an intolerable armament burden on the backs of the people. The Hague conferences were a step forward in international affairs. Peace societies had grown by leaps and bounds throughoul Ihc 19th century in the United Stales, Britain, France, and Germany. From 1843 until the World War interrupted them, a scries'of almosl annual peace conferences were held in various world capitals. These were however, private organizations whose aim was to put pressure on governments for peace. The Hague meeting of 18D9 was a conference of representatives of governments direct. Further, there was not a single cloud of war in the sky when the conference assembled, which was a novelty in peace conferences. Hopes Were Great, Results Minor Thwenty-six countries were represented. The actual results were mcag- cr enough, considering the tremendous sensation the conference marie, and the high hope it lifted up before the world. There was a pious resolution condemning the accelerating arms race. There was another resolution opening wider the door to arbitration, and providing that any government might offer mediation during a war without the act being construed as unfriendly.

Though this reads oddly 40 years later. The Hague conference adopted declarations against dumdum bullets, gas shells, and projectiles dropped from ballons. The airplane as a major, perhaps dominant, war weapon could not be foreseen. The Wright brothers flight was still years in the future.

Their assets were easy to count, because there weren't any. Almas' health was bad an Samuel's was none to good. • Business, like everything else, had gone from bad to worse. Their future was as black as the night outside their hotel room window, but in the blackness perhaps* was what they sought—obvion. Throughout the night they talked. The pile of cigarot stubs grew high- to one of New York's best hotels. Then they went out. Over the week-end they had fun. They went to places they always had wanted to sec. Tuesday night the money ran out. So, back in their hotel room, standing side by side before the twin windows where the rain was beating down in the darkness, they talked.

Most of it though isn't hard to guess. They probably talked about the doctor bills thai kept piling up. about Samuel's butter egg business, (Continued on Page Three) in which he had mcl one reverse after another; about the shabby furnished rooms in which (hey had lived of late; about the single dollar bill that Samuel still had in his pocket. And. as the burned-out cigarets piled up. they probably talked about the last fling they luicl taken la- gcthcr. Last Saturday, in their furnished rooms at the edge of Greenwich Village, they packed the least shabby of their clothing into a single bag. Samuel was 40 and he wasn't getting younger. Anna was 3(i and doctors hadn't been able to help her bronchial trouble. With the cigarct pile growing higher and higher, and dawn about to break, they reached their decision. Together they stepped from the twin windows and plunged 22 floor to an extension roof below. When police found them, they were lying side by side, with Anna's head near Samuel's shoulder. His arm was outstretched toward her. They had registered as Mr, and Mrs. Sam Wilson of Detroit. They lefi no notes, but Detective James Sullivan traced a call they had made from their room to Mrs. Helen Ycaklc, of West Now York, N. J., H .sister of Mrs. Walker. From Mrs. Ycaklc police learn cd the tragic story. Mr. Yeakle said they had talked to her of suicide, but, she believed she had dissuaded them. They had been married 15 years. Then, a.s an afterthought, she added. "They were very much in love."
