BURST OUT IN ?I
Five Indictments for Mining Pro?
motions Exploited Through
His Literary Ability.
WRITER HIMSELF IN NUMBER
Albert Freeman, Considered
Head of Companies, and Josiah
Quincy, Twice Mayor of Bos?
ton, Named in Charges.
The Hawthorne mina bubbles hurst
yesterday, when five men most promi?
nently associated with the chain of min?
ina; promotions exploitetl through ti-e
literary ahlllty of Julian Hawthorne ap?
peared before Judge Hough, in the
I'nlted States District Court, to plead to
Indictments charging them with using
the malls in schemes to defraud and
with conspiracy to commit an offence
against the I'nlted States.
The men indicted wore Albert Free?
man, a stock promoter of many years'
activity and reputed head of all the
enterprises concerned. Josiah Quincy, a
descendant of one of the best ?known
Poston families, once Assistant Secre?
tary of State under Grover Cleveland,
twice Mayo*- of Boston, ami nmv a mem?
ber of the Transit Commission of that
city, who has been counsel for all the
companies promoted, Julian Hawthorne,
the writer and Journalist, son of Na?
thaniel Hawthorne, who gave his name
and literary ability to advertise the
stocks; Dr William J. Morton, well
known nerve specialist, of this city, and
John McKinnon, secretary and treasurer
of all the enterprises
Francis L. Wellman, ss counsel,
entered a plea of not guilty for all the
defendants, with leave to withdraw It on
W-edneaday after reading the Indict?
ments. Judge Hough fixed bail In Fron?
ts, n's eise at 925,000 and at flO.000
each for tho other defendants. Tr.e
bonds were furnished later in the flay.
The five indictments returned dealt
v.ith the '.otivitv of th?i defendants dur?
ing the period fr?>m 1906 to the present
time in selling stock in the mines of the
Continental Syndicate, controlling the
Temagami Coha't Mines, Ltd.; the Elk
Lake Cobalt Mines, Ltd.; the Montreal
Cobalt Minep, Ltd.; the Hawthorne ?Sil?
ver and Iron Mines. Ltd.. and the Julian
Hawthorne Company. The total amount
said to have been netted was about .<'A,
Difficulties of Investigation.
Complaints from numerous Investors
started an Investigation into tho Haw?
thorne enterprises last spring. W. W.
Dickson, chief pnstoffice inspector, as
slgned Inspectors Kincaid, Reddy ami
Mnyhew to !?>ok into the matter, and
early In September the case was taken
before the grand jury ?>v Claude A.
Thompson. Assistant Cnlted State? At?
torney. The Investigation was made dlf
flciilt through the fact that each of the
companies named held merely the stock
Of a Canadian company of the same
name, which held title to the property.
Shortly before the investigation began
all officers of the New York companies
resigned and the hooks were removed to
Canada with the exception of those of
the two companies bearing Hawthorne's
The Investigation, it was said, disclosed
that Freeman war the genius behind the
f.cheme that assured tremendous sales of
practicallv worthless stock through the
introduction of novel ideas Into the get
rich-quick game. He had entered pro?
moting manv years ago, and being quite
ar, adept at stirring advertising litera?
ture, had launched the King Solomon
Gold Mining Companv, which had Josiah
Quincy among Its directors; the I'nlted
Mining Company and others.
At the close of lfK?? the old fame
ceased to draw suffi?-lenth. It was then
that the new system was worked ?jUt
with the promotion of the Temagami
Cobalt Mines, Ltd This mining claim
and all ?>f the succeeding ones were situ?
ated near the famous ?Cobalt district that
had produced great wealth. The fact
that thev |ay far outside of the area em?
bracing the silver producing nines of
the district, some of them as far distant
as fifty miles, the indictments charged,
was carefully suppressed from the pub?
With a property that could easily re
trumped up as highly promising, the -??1
verttslng campaign became of great
Importance. Julian Hawthorne w is
selected for bis ability to write glowing
d?-p.'liptlons, and the name "Hawthorn?'"
was exploited Inter t<> inspiro confi?
dence among investors, appearing rn
each prospectus together with that rf
Josiah Quincy, as counsel. Invitations
to Invest were issued to the most intel?
lectual clientele that, could be obtained.
The "sucker list" was not one of the
well known variety, but was compiled
mainly from university catalogues and
from the alumni lists of Hsrvard, Yale,
Princeton and Columbia.
Hawthorne Started Campaiqn.
The campaign was started with the
publication of a number of booklets
written by Julian Hawthorne like the
. t of Solomon" and others whi. h
dealt in s visionary manner with ?he
?possibilities ?of wealth through mining
enterprises. "Virgin treasure dug out of
th ?arth Is dean treasure; it makes no
one l'ou?* ami II make* the digger rich,"
said HgWthorne in ??ne of the panir fi?
The booklets were followed with per?
son .1 letters. To avoid the destruction
of personality that is caused i?\ a rub

crmpany'i offices, at No. 831 Kit t h -.??

was associated with D. If, Morgan, for?

man of the Democratic State ?"ommittee.
For n short time he was Assistant Sec?
retary of State under President Cleve?
land and was twice elected Mayor of

dor Joseph H. Chonte and members of
the American I-.mbassy were present.
After the death of his first wife he mar?

raising herself on her elbow with a su?
preme effort. "1 did not attack him. He
drove me into a corner and shot me. I had
no chance to escape."
Aft.-rward Hafner said to the police:
"Yes, T shot her. She wasn't a good wife
to me. and she'd be better off dead. I want
to die. too."
Dr. Harry G. Harris of No. K-6 West
74th street, was called in, but found that

??. P?NKH?RST SPEAKS
Says Men Show Most Courtesy i
Where Women Are Voters.
TELLS OF WESTERN TRAVEL !
Declares to Carnegie Hall Audi?
ence Vote Can Be Won at the
Mrs. Emmellne Pankhurst, the militan?
English suffrage leader, who has lust ?oeen
making a tour of the western part of thi? !
country, told a huge audience el ''arnegl?? |
Hall last night that never had ehe nee*, ?
such courtesy from men to women ?is lr,
the states where women vo'e
"Men are much more courteous to women
In those states than they are in the 1
crowded English cities," she said. "Why.
one day I was In a motor car driven bf ?>
woman voter, and the traffic officer stopped
us at the corner that another car, having ;
the right of way, might pas?. And the |
man who was driving that car was so po- i
lltely unwilling to go In front of the j
woman voter that It required the utmost ?
authority of the policeman to make him !
do so If there are any anti-suffrage gen?
tlemen In this audience who are afraid that
that mysterious thing, courtesy, will dis- j
appear when women get the vote, I hope
this Incident will reassure them."
But Mrs. Pankhurst doesn't conclude from
her Western ohservatlons that women lack
the power to enforce their will?courtesy
or no courtesy.
"Those antl-suffragists who argue their
cause hy insisting that women couldn't
maintain the peace?and therefore shouldn't

i ern city," she said. "She was a slip of
a girl?perhaps twenty-three years old?and
I was rather startled when ?he mentioned
to me casually that she had Just sent a
man to the police station.
" Did he go?' I asked her.
" 'Oh, yes,' she said. 'I showed him my
police badge, and he went right along.'
"There was that man, going meekly to
the police station and giving himself Into
custody because this girl had showed him
her badge as a factory inspector: and yet
they say women couldn't enforce laws or
She had m?-t women deputy Inspectors In
the West, she said, and women policemen.
"An?l as for women voters In general,"
she added, "I wish every one in this audi?
ence could visit those states and see what
an air of dignity and security it gives
those women to possess the right of suf?
Mrs. Pankhurst strongly urged her hear?
ers, those who believed in woman suf?
frage, to put aside every other interest, to
work for no other cause, until this cause
"As an expert in getting votes for wom?
en," she said, "I assure you that If Amer?
ican women of energy will put aside every
other consideration, th?- vote, in every
state I have visited, can be won at the
earliest possthle legislative moment. In
three of the states It can be won this
year. And I hope an1 trust that every
woman in this hall will put aside every
other cause, every philanthropy, work for
nothing else, yptil that which will dignify
and strengthen every other interest is in
the grasp of women."
The latter part of Mrs. Pankhurst's ad?
dress touched on the militant method' of
her followers In England, wnich, she said,
were not theirs by choice.
"There Isn't a militant suffragist," she
said, "who would not prefer constitutional
methods?if we were allowed them. Mili?
tant methods are, no doubt, clumsy, but,
clumsy as they are, they have forced the
question of woman suffrage info the fore?
front of politics and upon the attention of
the civilized world."
Mrs. Pankhurst described Mr. Lloyd
George's offer of a woman suffrage amend?
ment to th?- manhood suffrage bill as "a
degradation to women."
"We women do not want to creep in at
the back door, even If the d?>or is opened
wide enough," she declared. "What ws de?
mand, what T am goins hack to tight for.
Is suffrage on equal terms with men. Lloyd
