he beat his wife on the head into in
sensibility with blows with a wooden
mallet at Lake Como, Italy, and then
stuffed her, still living, into a trunk
and sank the trunk in the waters of
the lake, is a matter outside the
jurisdiction of the New Jersey courts.
On the'other hand, he will not be

'by the Charlton family, who announ

youth's mind proves dangerously un
sound they would take the initiative
in having him committed to some
The attitude of the New Jersey
courts, as defined by Prosecutor
Pierre Garven of Hudson -county, is
"The State of New Jersey now
holds Charlton merely on the com
plaint of the Italian consul general
as a fugitive from Italian justice,
pending a request for his extradition
from the Italian Department of
State through the Italian minister to
Secretary Knox of the American De

action that the courts of this State

my province and on which the At

is more competent to pass opinion."
^^???nrhus there is a possibility that
Charlton may walk from jail a free
man without trial, for the general
trend, of the dispatches from Rome
seem to indicate that the Italian
government will act in the matter

Government Maies Money.
The government swung a little bus
iness project on its own account in
connection with the building of the
great Roosevelt dam ou the Salt
River irrigation project, and all that
remains for that particular^ part cf
the'job^is to close it out at'a profit.
Secretary Ballinger has taken the
Srst steps* to that end. .
It required nearly 400,000 barrels
of cement for the work on the pro
ject, and the best bid the reclama
tion sendee could get from outsiders
was $4.89 a barrel. So the engineers
set up a mill, and turned out all the
cement the job required, and the cost,
figuring the mill and all, was only
$2.90 a barrel.
Now Secretary Ballinger has order
ed the mill sold at public sale. Not
only did the government save money
for itself, for the settlers, who will
have to pay back the. reclamation
charges. The government's saving in
the manufacture of cement alone was
$675,000. The proceeds from the
sales of the mill will add to them
still more. ___
Report eil Labor in Cotton Mills.
The report of the bureau of laboi
on the employment of women and
child labor in the cotton textile in
dustry has been sent to Congress by
Secretary Nagel, of thc department
of commerce and labor. ,
A summary of the report prepared
by the bureau shows thar in forty
six New England mills investigated
43.3 per cent of all the operatives
were females over 1G years of age
and 5.2 per cent were children under
16 years, while in'152 Southern mills
women constituted 27 per cent of the
total and children 20 per cent.
The greater;percentage of children
in the Soxithern Statos is accounted
for by the fact that, at the time of
the investigation, it was legal and
customary ih those States ::o employ
children 12 and 13 years old, while
in New England employment could
not legally begin before 14 years.

"For transporting considerable
