given at the Academy of Music Friday
night, the New York Herald says:
"Scenery, vivid In Its realism of pic
tures and perfect throughout in the
clock-work machinery of its progress.
'The Span of Life' returns more power
ful, more successful and more popular
than ever. The audience that filled
every available portion of the house,
found vent In the upplause for their
admiration, as curtain after curtain
fell upon the highly sensational and
thrilling bits of climatic action. The
lighthouse on Collin Rocks on the
Devonshire coast, with an ungry sea
outside, the fog bells ringing In the
distance, and a ship with all sails set
from out the frog comes sailing up the
ledge, is a bit of realism that leaves the
spectator thrilled and astounded."

Wlliam Collier's success In legitimate
comedy, while In no sense a surprise,
has been one of the dramatic events of
the season. The play, "A Back Num
ber," having been written by Kidder,
has caused Collier and Sol Smith ijits
sell to be compared. This In Itself is
a compliment, but Collier has Russell's
drollness while there Is In addition a
sparkle about his comedy which the
elder uctor lacks. Collier will produce
"A Buck Number" at the Acudemy of
Music Saturday night.

"Blue Jeans" will be produced at the
Academy of Music next Monday night
by a competent company. The play de
rives Its title from a substantial fabric
of thut name, extensively loomed In
southern Indiana. It Is dignified by an
eminent rhapsodlflt who writes of
"Blue Jeans'" thus: "Blue Is the color
of hope, jeans the symbol of strength."
The scenes of the play are laid In and
about Rising' Sun, Indiana, a village
on the Ohio river. In what Is familiarly
known as the "Blue Jeans Deestrlct,"
and the characters are fulthful types
of that locality.

BEZEK TEUSJIS STORY
Says He Was in an Insane Asylum
HIS LOVE FOR MARIA KERZIC
It I.cJ Him Away from Home and Friends
He Says und Cuused Him to Come
to This Country-Closing
Murderer Franz Bezek Is now stand
ing In the shadow of the gallows, his
trial is at an end. and today the op
posing attorneys will make their argu
ments to the Jury. Judge Edwards will
deliver his charge, and Into the hands
of the twelve men sworn to do justice
between the commonwealth and the
prisoner at the bar, will be consigned
the responsibility of rendering a verdict
according to their consciences and
based upon the evidence udduced In the
case. As on the day before court was
yesterday In session from 9 a. m. until
9.30 p.m., with the exception of ad
journments for dinner and supper and
a short recess now and then.
When the morning session opened
Judge Edwurds directed the defense to
proceed with their case and Attorney
Colborn began his argument to the Jury.
As early as the hour was the uudlto
rlum of the court room was thronged
with people eager to hear the eloquence
of Mr. Colborn. The speaker spread
before the Jurymen a romantic figura
tive tableau of the prisoner's life cover
ing the time beginning with his boy
hood In the Austrian Tyrol down to the
day that he steeped his hands In the
life blood of the girl he loved because
she refused to marry him. In closing
his argument Mr. Colborn outlined-the
character of the line of defense and
said that evidence of former Insanity
would be offered In evidence, and that
witnesses would go upon the stand and
swear that the defendant had In his na
tive country been confined In an in
A man by the name of Frank Bezek,
of Maylleld, was the first witness called
to the stand. The murderer's name Is
not Bezek. but Berchlne. although In
the ' Indictment he is so called. The
former name he went by on account
of having purchased the passports of
that man and on these he traveled to
this country. District Attorney Kelly
objected to the evidence of Besek, who
was to testify to the passports, on the
ground that It was immaterial and ir
relevant. Court sustained the 'objec
tion and the witness was not ques
lieek's I'nclc Testifies.
Joseph Petrotschl, the murderer's
uncle, was called to the Btand. He was
expected to prove that the murderer
was confined In a military hospital In
Llebach, Austria, and while there was
suffering from dementia. Witness saw
Bezek in a hospital In Lelbach, Austria.
He seemed to be sick and was acting
strangely. The murderer was In the
military service and this was a mili
tary hospital. Bezek and Maria Ker'zlc
first came to his house in Mayfleld on
Sunday, Oct. 7. The girl left before
Bezek and her absence appeared to
have a gloomy effect on him. He began
to cry and wring his hands. Bezek left
his house at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon
to go to Olyphant and he was angry
with his uncle because he did not ac
John Bosnot was the next witness.
Counsel for the defense was required to
make an offer explaining what Was
Intended to prove by the witness and
court ruled that the witness would, be
permitted to answer only as to the con
duet of the murderer during a period
covering five years beginning at the
period when witness saw Bezek in the
military hospital. The witness testi
fied substantially the same as the pre
Anthony Kranc, another man who saw
Bezek In the military hospital at Lle
bach, testified. Bezek was acting vety
strangely, crying and praying, and
seemed to be out of his head when wit
ness saw Mm.
lle.ek on the SlunJ.
There was a curious stir In the court
room when the murderer's name was
called and fie was announced as the
next witness. Answering the questions
put to him by his attorneys he told his
life's history as follows: lie Is now 27
years of age, was born In the small vil
lage of Llebach in the southern paint of
Austria, adjoining Turkey, and lived
there until he emigrated to America.
Maria 'Kerzlc, the girl he murdered,
lived close by his father's farm; It re
quired a three minutes walk to get to
her home. They grew up together and
when he arrived nt the age of 22 he Siad
learned to love 'her. His father Is a
wealthy farmer and he labored with his
father's peatiants. At 22 he joined the
Austrian army and was engaged In the
service seven months.
He was a patient four months In the
military hospital 'In the Insane depart
ment. When he recovered his sanity
the physicians discharged 'him, 'he was
given papers of discharge by the mili
tary authorities and returned to his
father's 'home. He fell violently In love
with Maria and they became engaged
to be married. Mary was a working
girl and her parents were poor; his
father Is rich and he objected to their
union. He was home for four years af
ter his first dlschurge from the hospital
and was thrown In Mary's company
much of that time. At the end of .four
yours his father sent him back again to
the hospital, because he was suffering
from another attack. of, dementia. He
was confined there about three months.
He could not remember anything that
happened to him while (he' was in the
hoapftal and did not remember any of
his friends coming to see him. After his
second discharge he 'returned, 'home
again and worked on the farm for seven
months; then he determined to come to
this country. He "had been keeping
steady company with Maria for. three
years altogether, and she Agreed to fly
to America with 'him, where they could
get married, because his father object
ed strenuously to their match. .
The girl secured a passport for him
and also gave him 75 florins In Austrian
money; his father gave him some money
also. 'Maria' bought the passport and
the name In which it was made out
was Frana Bezek. Berehlne is his
Jiroper name, but he traveled under the
name of Franz Bezek. They talked
together before leaving about getting
married wben they arrived in America.
They -came over, via Bremen, thence
to London, ' and over the Atlantic to
this country. He -would have wedded
Maria In Austria, but his father threat
ened to disinherit him, and the sole
reason he came to this country with
her was to marry her. They, as he
thought, would be married when May
field was reached.
He first learned that she changed her
mind about marrying him when he vis
ited her sister's house In Olyphnnt
about 4.30 o'clock on the aftdrnoon of
Sunday, Oct. 7. Mrs. Kramer, Maria's
sister, told him that Maria would not
marry him because Anton Bourschneck
had sent the passage money, and Bezek
answered her that It was not Boursch
neck who sfnt the money but herself.
Then Mrs. Kramer told him that he
could marry Maria if he vald back the
passage money. He told tier he would
get the money from his uncle In May
fleld, but to this nhe said that Maria
was going to marry Bourschneck any
how. He then left Kramer's house and
went broken-hearted back to May field.
He could not stay away from the house
and after riding around on the street
cars for a few hours Journeyed ugaln
to Kramer's house.
He Would Not Eat.
They offered him supper, but he re
fused to eat. He slept there that
night and the next night, and Maria
wus not allowed by her sister to speak
to him. He was again offered supper
on Monday evening but refused to eat.
He wanted to write a farewell letter
to his parents In Austria, but his mind
was so disturbed that he could not
write. He Intended to kill himself, and
before leaving the house he begged
Murla to marry him; she scorned him
and he left her, threatening to commit
suicide. He then went out to purchase
a revolver, und returned without buy
ing one. He went to bed and arose be
fore 7 o'clock the next morning, went
out again to buy a revolver, and, having
purchased It with the Intent to take
his own life, returned to see Maria, to
ask her for the last time If she would
marry him, and If she refused he had
intended to destroy himself in her
When he went In Maria was scrub
bing the floor. He begged of her with
tears In his eyes to be his; her answer
was In the negative; thereupon he
Jerked the revolver from his hip pocket,
pointed It at his head and she threw
herself in his arms. Simultaneously
with this act In pulling the trigger to
send a ball into his head she fell Into
his arms and the bullet meant for him
self killed her and she fell dead at his
feet. Two other shots were fired, but
he was so excited that he knew not
whether he fired the shots or not. He
knows that he fired to kill himself, but
the weapon refused to work. At this
point his direct examination ended and
court adjourned for the afternoon.
Judge Edwards ordered an evening
session, beginning at 7 o'clock.
District Attorney Kelly began his
cross-examination, and subjected Be
zek to a thorough questioning. Bezek
admitted that he spent very little time
at school and that hi: sickness, which
sent him to the hospital In Llebach,
arose from his absence from Mai la,
because he could not see her, In other
words he was love sick. The reason he
traveled under the assumed name of
Bezek was because they were in a
hurry to come to America, and he
availed himself of the first opportunity;
so that when Maria purchased his pass
port he readily trawled on It. When
he arrived In Mayfleld he had only $1U
of American money left. He denied
that he tried to buy a revolver on Mon
day evening although h testified to
that on direct examination. Several
questions were asked of him that he
admitted on direct examination he de
nied on cross-examination.
Dr. C. R. Parke, who was a physi
cian at the county Jail In October, was
c&lled to the stand. He Bwore that he
remembered Bezek and attended him a
few days after he was brought to the
jail. Bezek was suffering from a
wound on the chin that to all appear
ances looked to be a pistol wound. It
was not serious. Cross-examined he
was possitlve that the wound was a
pistol wound. There were powder
marks burned Into the flesh around the
wound. He was certain the wound
could not have been made by contact
with a barbed wire fence. Some of
Bezek's lower teeth were loose.
Justice of the peace Cummlngs was
recalled In rebuttal to show that there
was no such wound on Bezek's chin
when ho was In his office. After his
testimony the defense wanted to re
call Constable Philip Williams, who
took Bezek fiom the 'squire's office to
the, county jail. It was Intended to
see If Bezek had been shot on his way
to the county Jail. An attachment was
sent out for the constable, who did not
answer to 'his name, and Judge Ed
wards allowed the defense to Introduce
Williams' testimony this morning, as
well as the testimony of the wardens
at the county Jail.

Attorney Watson will speak first to
the Jury today and Attorney Ct.lborn
