CHARLES KRATZ ARRESTED;
TO FIGHT EXTRADITION.
Continued Front Parte One.
with Guadalajara vrhiie at the mines
or at his ranch near Etzatlnn, but this
time he kept in touch only rith some
one tvho informed hlni of the news
from the States.
Since October 12 Kratz has felt that
his arrest would be only a matter of
time, and he has been equally fearful
that the outcome will not lie as pleas
ant for him as it was when be made
his first appearance In Mexico.
SURRENDER OF KRATZ
SEVERAL DAYS AGO.
spechx, to the ni-punuc bt cahle
Mexico City. Mexico, Oct. 2. It Is now
stated that Ambassador Clayton had the
authoritative statement of the Mexican
Government a few days ago that Kratz
would be surrendered It the United States
would. In return, promise strict reciprocity
In the matter of extradition of Mexican
criminals who might flee across the bor
der. Another proviso made by the Govern
rrent here Is understood to have been the
full compliance by the United States with
the provisions of the Mexican extradition
law of 1E9T.
Shortly after this the Mexican Depart
ment of State was advised that Ambassa
dor Clayton had received assurances that
his Government was willing to comply
wlth the requirements of Mexico In the
matter, and that pspcrs asking the pro
visional detention of Kratz had been for
warded. Acting upon this the fudtlvo boodler
was placed under arrest Tuesday upon his
return to Guadalajara.
If Kratz has hopes of winning his case
in the Mexican courts. In the opinion of
lawyers of this city, he may as well lay
them aside, for. unless the Government
here had been sure of Its powers In tho
matter, semiofficial statements that Kratz
was to be returned would not be so rife.
The law requires that one must be a
resident of the country, and a naturalized
citizen for two years before a writ of
lmpero. which Is in the nature of the
habeas corpus proceeding of the courts of
the United States, can be taken ad
vantage of In fighting extradition proceed
ings. The treaty under which Kratz will be
returned la unique, and Is the only one In
the world which makes bribery an extra
ditable offense. The Mexican Government
was chary at first la regard to Its powers
to return Kratz, as It did not think the
treaty was retroactive. On the ready
compliance with Its demands by the
United States, and a perusal of the author
ities on International law. It was decided
that It a request for provisional detention
be made, there was no need to await
the receipt of the papers before placing
Kratz in custody.
One authority here says that an that
remains for the United States to do Is to
send the proper officer, equipped with the
papers in the case, and Kratz will be sur
rendered and accompanied to the border
by Mexican officers of the law.

Washington. Oct 22. The officials of the
State Department are not Inclined to dis

This expectation Is based on the simple
fact that If tli Mexican Government has

GOVERNOR DKERY NOTIFIED
BY STATE DEPARTMENT.
Jefferson City. Mo.. Oct 21-The deter
mination of the Mexican authorities to re
turn Kratz to St Lculs to stand trial Is
a pleasing bit of news to all who are con
cerned In seeing boodlers punished.
Under date of Octolier 11 Governor
Dockery wired Secretary of State John
Hav at Washington the following dis
patch: "Charles Kratz. Indicted for bribery in
St Louis. Is at Guadalajara. Mexico, a
fugitive from Justice. Have him arrested
and detained provisionally, pending the ar
rival of extradition papers. Warrant fer
hl3 arrest lias been Issued, and extradition
rapers fully complying with Mexican law
will bo forwarded."
This afternoon Governor Dockery re
ceived tho following telegram from Act
ing Secretary of State Adeo at Washing
ton: "Ambassador Clayton telegraphs that
Mexican Foreign OClco officials Inform
him that Kratz was arrested at GuadaU
Jara on the 2Hh Inst, and that requisi
tion must be made within thirty clays

FOR KRATZ NEXT MONDAY.
Circuit Attorney Folk had not fully de
cided last night who he will send after for
mer Councilman Charles Kratz. who Is
under nrrest at Guadalajara. Mexico, and
wanted In St Louis on the charge of
bribery In connection with the Suburban
Mr. Fok stated that the officer who will
go after Kratz probaoly will depart Mon
day. It Is believed that Chief Deputy
Sheriff Charles It Iloran of tho Four
Courts force will be one of the officers
who will so for the fugitive.
Kratz, It Is thought, will apply for a
writ of lmpero. which, in Mexico. Is the
same as the writ of habeas corpus in the
United States. Of the ultimate success In
the efforts to bring Kratz back Circuit
Attorney Folk has not the slightest doubt
The first Intimation of Kratz's arrest at
Guadalajara came yesterday afternoon
about Z-Jii o'clock In a telegram to Circuit
Attorney Folk from F. Van Dyne, extradi
tion officer of the State Department at
THIRTY DAYS TISIH
The telegram stated that the Mexican
Foreign Offlco had notified the State De
partment that Kratz had been arrested on
October 3). It stated that Kratz Is being
held for the United States authorities, ad
vised that the extradition papers lie ready
and announced that extradition would
have to be made In thirty days.
Circuit Attorney Folk sent Detective Mc
Donnell to Jefferson City last night to have
the extradition papers signed by Governor
Dockery- McDonnell is expected back this
Circuit Attorney Folk was greatly
pleased with the Information given In the
telegram. While he has had no doubt but
that the negotiations with Mexico for the
rclurn of Kratz would result favorably
tlnce his conference with President Roose
velt on October S. the news was extremely
gratifying to him.
Immediately cpon the receipt of the
telegram announcing that Kratz had been
arrested, considerable excitement prevailed
at the Four Courts. The return of John
K. Murrell did not make more of a etlr.
The newo spread rapidly and Mr. Folk re
ceived many telephonic messages congrat
ulating him on the victory he has won in
his fight of a year and a half to bring
about the return of Kratz. who was recog
nized as the leader of the Council boodle
The question of who shall go after the
fugitive wis raised at once. Chief Deputy
Sheriff Koran was In the Circuit Attorney's
oHlce at the time and his presence caused
his name to be mentioned as one of the
messengers. He. no doubt, will be selected
as one of the men. In the event that one
of Mr. Folk's assistants dots cot go. It
is regarded as probable that Chief Des
mond will be called upon to detail a man.
In that event It is believed that Assistant
Chief of Detectives John Kelly will go.
As the expenses of the trip must be
borne by the Circuit Attorney's office, Mr.
Folk will have the matter of selecting
the messengers who will go after Kratz
left to his own discretion.

Tom McGrath went to Mexico after Kratz

The Suburban Railway Company wished

with England and France will also be
retroactive In the event that they are
It Is Circuit Attorney Folk's Intention
to let nothing go undone that will lead to
the extradition of Wainwright and Kelley.
He has given much of his time for more
than a year to the matter of extraditing
Kratz. and If neccsary will spend as
much time, or more If required, to brlnz
about the return of Wainwright and Kel
ley. Wainwright was a director of the Subur
ban Hallway Company and signed the
notes amounting to 3U2.000 to obtain from
the German Savings Institution the money
required for the passage of the bill. JS9.W0
for the Council combine and m.000 for the
eighteen House members.
Kratz was a member of the City Coun
cil when the lighting I'll and Central
Traction bills, both of which have resulted
In Indictments, were passed. Ills career
In politics began In 1SS8. when he was
elected as the Tenth Ward's representa
tive in the Houe of Delegates.
It was not long before lie became a pow

tics, and he has often been referred to
as the "boss boodler." He was once

with the congressional candidacy. He was

KRATZ WILL HAVE TROUBLE
IN OBTAINING BONDSMEN.
According to James A. Arbuckle. presi
dent of the Latin-American Club of this
city. Kratz will have considerable dlffl
culty In obtaining ball at Guadalajara on
account of the formalities that must be
gone through with.
"In a case like this." said Mr. Arbuckle.
"where the Federal Government has or
dered the arrest through the local author
ities, formalities are legion before a man
can be released. Kratz's difficulties may
b lnrreasea by the fact that a new Amer
ican Consul has recently taken charge of
affairs In the city.
"Edward B. Light has recently been ap
pointed Consul to succeed Mr. Young, who
has Just retired. In a case like this. Inter

hi" Interference nouM be of much avail.
"RerMe" satl-fylnK the local authorities

must satl'fy the Federal official?. This
will take time. I think It extremely prob
able tliat Kratz mav have to spend his
time In Jail unless a combination cf clr
cumstannvi has put him In touch with
loth civil and military authorities who are
wilting to release him under surveillance.
"Tho Guadalajara Jail U located In the
western portion of the city, and there Is
but one such structure in the town, which
has a population of about I(6i'"l It Is an
old building, of tlie ancient Spanish type
of one story. All prisoners to b held

lect lit one or two cells are located In
the entire structure, and these are more
In the nature of dungeonc than anything
The remainder of the building has one
partition for m:ile and another for female
prisoners. Kratz will not have an enjoy
able time In the pla'c. that Is certain. If
lie hHPPens to be "ufftclently In touch with
those In power, he may secure bood In

termed a "pull" lfore he c-in secure his

annual banquet of the New Tork State

Mr. Wright said.
"I appreciate the practical difficulties la
the wav of the application of the dj-mn.
but It seems to me that It Is not beyond
the bounds of possibility. Of course. It
would be necessary to have the advice and
approval of mn of the highest scientific
attainment. Of course, there sitouki be the
consent of relatives and the consent even

"But where all those conditions are ful
filled and where the prolongation of life Is
sCmply the prolongation of hopeless agony.
It seems to me that It would be proper
that such a patient should, auletly. dieent

would be a step forward In civilization
and a etep farther away from barbarism."
