Dr. Richard E. Yahr Attributes
Lueders' Trouble to This.

prlsoniiieiit and JfGOO Fine n Sin
Iirise to ton Foreign Residents, nul
the Get man Minister Demanded
X.uedei s Relmse ami Obtained It.
New York, Nov. 30. Dr. Itichnrd E.
Tuhr a German pliyHicIan, who arri.-od
hcr& recentlx; front. Haiti, is an intimate-
friend of Herr Xaiedere, who was im
prisoned by the Haitian government. Dr.
Yahr was in Port au Prince whon the
trouble which led to Lueders' imprisonment
and expulsion from Haiti occurred. He
.said Uiduy that many of the articles which
had aps cared in the American news
papers in lefereneu to this matter were
'.mong other things," said he, "it -was
stated fn these articles that Lueders lad
married a native woman. Lueders has
never been mairied, and Is a bachelor.
Furthermore, it was said that Lueders
was a nt-tivc of Haiti and changed I Is
nationality only because he had become
Involved in a number or duels. Lueders
was never a citlen of Haiti.
"Lncdorf! was arrest ed and sentenced to
one mt mil's imprisonment on September
21 by the police of Pert au Prince, for an
alleged assault, lie appealed from the
decision and expected that in the mean
time he would he allowed to leave the
prison. The Haitian government, how
ever, paid no attention to his request for
liberation, and he therefore appealed to
the German minister, Count Schweren, for
"Count Schweren sent a note to the min
ister of foreign affairs, S. Menrcs, de
manding Luerter&' immediate relpase. The
Haitian government nccUncd to :xnpty
with the Geiiuau minister ft request, anil
Lueders was compelled to remain in pris
on. "On September 28 he was brought up'or
trlai. Eleven reputable witnesses testified
that on September 2L they had been yt
traotecl by a loud noise which came
from the stables belonging to Luede-s.
They said they .aw a number of ioHcem n
on the scene cndeavoilng to arrin Lue
ders coachman. Xcarhy stood LuHtetK.
who was gieatfy excited. LiMhffir com
manded the poMcemen to leave his yrcm
Ises, which tliey ionised to do. Every
witness testified positively that Lueders
did not puthU hands on The men.
"The state's attorney, In asking for
Lueders' conviction, said tliat the defend
ant was an exciUtble character, who l.nd
not only assaulted of fleers of the Republic,
hut had also created open rebellion .ig.dnst
the Stale. He, therefore, asked the court
to Impose upon Lueders a heavy fine and
Imprisonment for two years.
"To the surprise of the foreign residents,
Lueders was sentenced to one year's Im
prisonment and to pay a fine of .-JoOO ;iid
costs. Soon after the German minister
made his demand for Lueders' release,
and obtained it."
Dr. Yahr also said that the troatm?nt
received by Lueders was merely art outburst
of the bitter hatred which the Haitians
feel for all the foreign residents of the
islands of cvtry nationality.
A Haitian high in the confidence of the
HaltlHU go eminent, when he lead this
statement today, reiterated what had been
printed lelatlng to the Lueders case. Lue
ders' mother, he said, was a Haitian, and
hehimFeif was born in Haiti. If he had
spent twenty years In Germany and con
sidered himself a German citizen, it was
not generally known, and Lueders was
considered a Haitian by all his neighbors.
"But 1 do not think," said this gentle
man, "that Dr, Yahr is so well informed
as ho professes to be. I can siy that I, my
self, have read an interview Lueders
irranted to the most famous newspaper man
in the republic, and in that Interview
Luederj admitted that he had been very
harsh, "indeed, with the police. So far as
the last statement of Dr. Yahr Is con
cerned, anyone who has been in Haiti
knows tl.ut there is no feeling there
against any foreign resident. Foreign
residents are -welcome, and when they settle
in the country and engage qariieiy in
busiressi thoy are usuully successful.'

GOVEHNMENT MEETS DEFEAT.
Hndicnlfe Cheer mid Declare They
Will Demand Resignations.
Paris, Nov. 30. The government this
evening met an unexpected defeat in the
senate. The subject under debate was
the removal by the government of a cer
tain magistrate, which action had been
denounced. as illegal. M.Darlan, minister
of justice, in defending the position of
the government, demauded the order of
the da-, pure aud simple. This w-is re
jected, and a rerolution calling,, upon the
government to strictly enforce the law was
passed by a vote of 133 to tl3.
The Radicals received le announce
ment of the result of the- pit with loud
cheers. The news caused some spniia.ion
when it reached the Chamber of, Deputies.
The Radical deputies were "elated, and
declared in the lobbies that they iiitenlcd
to demand the resignation of the govern
ment. It docs not appear likely that the ad
verse vote will have serious consequences.
The censuro was rather applied to M.Dar

1TI1 THORK GiilGTEO
Found Guilty of tho Mnrdcr of
SENTENCE IMPOSED FRIDAY
Immovable to the End, the Murdei er
Hears, the Verdict With Apparent
indifference Mis. Nack May PUal
Guilty to Manslaughter nud e
ceive u Loiiglmrjrisoiiineiit.
New York, Nov. 30. MartlruThorn stood
in the courtroom in Long Island. City this
evening-.'ind heard twelve men, one after
the other, pronounce him guilty ot tho
murder of William Guldensuppe.
It was the end for him of more than
five months of futile subterfuge in a vain
effort to avoid the doom of death. The
struggle was over, and tho fearful strain
ot this last wcek'b fight for life relaxed.
Thorn only smiled and lapsed again Into
that callousness that has stamped him
throughout the trial as a creature without
There is no alternative but death, for
the verdict was for murder In the first
degree, and Iu the opinion of all, save
the attorneys lor the uefense, the hope
of a rci t-rcnl of this verulct in the higher
courts Is absolutely vain.
The verdict was generally expected.
Seven ballots were taken and the jury
Stood eleven for conviction from the stait.
Thorn will.be sentenced next Friday.
It was reported late tonlgnt thus when
Thorn was being taken back to Jail he
told his guard, Capt. Methven. that he
was glad it- was all over and that he
expected the verdict.
"I killed Guldensuppe," he said, accord
ing to the report, "and I cut up the body.
Every word Mrs. Nack said on the wit
ness stand was right."
The fiist move of the day was made
by Mr. Howe for the defense. He asked
that the Jury might be allowed to go to
the Woodside cottage and sec the scene
of the crime for themselves. He thought
It particularly important that they should
see the bath tot in which tne prosecution
maintained, that Thorn had cut his victim
up nlone and unassisted. Justice Maddux
at first rtedlued to grant the motion, but
when the district attorney of his own
volition declared tliat he thought it
might be best he changed his mind.
bo It was ordered that the jury nhould
gp in a special trolley car to Woodside.
Guarded by six officers of the court swotn
to allow no one to approach thera and
ordered even not to speak among therrwsl ws,
the juiyiiwit filed, out of the courrnom.
Solemnly und in silence they made tne
trip. They entered the little cottjge,
m minted tue step up whteh Uuftlciwappe
had gone that day to hl$ death, gazed
at the uiidinted lining of tho bath tub,
and leturned to court. Then they were
icudy fot the filghts of oratory.
The judge's charge to the Jury was an
Impartial one The jury retired at 2 35
o'clock, and court was adjourn-ad until
1 o'clock. At 1 o'clock court reconvened,
but there was no -erdlct yet. The Jury
sent for the letters that Thorn and his
mlsiiess had exchanged while In jail .
The justice retired to his private Miom.
By and by word came that an agreement
had been reached.
Justice Maddox entered the courtroom ct
5:35 o'clock. Thorn came in with his
keeper by his side and took his teat
beside Mr. Howe, who looked far more
concerned than he. The jurors, too, kept
their eyes cast "down and there was -ieah
hi eveij face. They took their seats and
the clerk called the roll.
"Gentlemen of the jury." t-aid the clerk,
"stand up and Tuce the prl'oner. Prisoner,
face the jury.
The Jurymen aro"-e to their feet, their
eyes still on the lloor. Thorn, too, arose,
but he looked straight ahead at the wall.
"Have you agreed on a verdict?" called
"What say you?" called the clerk again.
"Guilty," was- the answer. "We find
the defendant guilty as charged in the
It was Thomas Moore, the foreman, who
spoke, and he was trembling with emo
tion. Thorn stood impassive.
"Call the roll," said the court, and one
by one the clerk read off the names.
"Guilty," ttcy said, one after another,
and as they said it Thorn's ey-s fell haid
upon them. Mr. Young's then asked that
a day be fi? ed lor pa&sing sentence.
Mr. Howe asked that a day be set on
which he might argue a motion for a
new trial. The justice told him It would
be useless, and then and there denied
the motion. So they fixed Friday as the
day 'or the passing of sentence. The
justice, having thanked the jurors and
discharged them, ordered adjournment of
the Court, but -Mr. Howe arose and begged
.that the hubbub might- be stopped while
he spoke a fe-.-. words to his client.
Instantly there w-as silence and Thorn
leaned forward. He put one- around Mr.
Moss and Mr. Howe placed one ami around
the prisoner. There the three sat whisper
ing, withtheir heads nearly touching. When
they were done the keepers took Th irn back
to jail and the courtroom was cleared.
Aud now comes the question, what is to
be done with Mrs. Nack? Mr. I'ouiigs'
words berorc the jury are not taken at
their literal meaning. He refused tonight to
talk of the case, explaining that he would
give out a statement tomorrow. It is
generally exnected, however, that a pica
of manslaughter in the first degree "Will
be accepted, and that she will beseuten-ed
to a long term of imprisonment.
