Oklahoma City, Oklsi., Juno 13.
Immediately upon his nn lvnl hero by
special train, Governor Charles N.
Haskell took up his headquarters at
Oklahoma City and practically estab
lished It H3 the permanent capi
tal of the commonwealth. The gov

whether he will attempt to remove
tho records of his office to Oklahoma
Mty In the face of tho Injunction la
sued by Ju'dgo Huston In tho district
court of Logan county, at Guthrie,
but ho hinted that the olllcial busi
ness of the state so far as the ex
ecutive office Is concerned will ire
transacted ftoni Oklahoma Clt.,. lit
Is practically certain that anybody
who attempts to remove tho records
from Guthrie to Oklahoma City dur
ing the existence of the Injunction
will be cited for contempt of court
and probably jailed.
When Sheriff John Mahonoy of
Guthrlo attempted to serve papers on
Governor Haskell the governor fulled
to accept service and peremptorily
ordered the ehei Iff to leave the hotel,
telling him If he did not do so ho
would have him incarcerated In tho
guardhouse, and Sheriff Mahoney lost
no time In leaving the governor. The
affair occurred in the balcony of tho
Lee Houcklns hotel, which was
crowded with guests ( and spectators.
Tfcn Rooms Engaged.
With the expectation of having all
the state olllcos In Oklahoma City
within a week, two floors In the" 10
story Lee hotel building have been
reserved for the use of the state offi
cers In the conduct of state business.
Governor Haskell vand Secretary of
State Hill Cioss havo removed their
state seals to Oklahoma City and
linve opened offices In tho Lee hotel.
It Is claimed thnt the fact that the
seals are here, taken In connection
with the decision at the rodent elec

homa City as tho capital, removes
the seat of the state government to
Oklahoma City Immediately.

That Man From Whom Americans Rented Villa
Near Milan, Italy, Borrowed Knnclile Duster From
Drugyest Short Time Before Woman's Body Hauled
Ashore By Fishermen-Bfoodstains Found On R.' R.
Milan, June 13. It has been learn-'
ed by the police that Constantlne
Spolatoff, the Russian who was taken
into custody In connection with the
murder of Mrs. Porter Charlton, the
American woman, whose body was
found a couple of days ago at the
bottom of Lake Como, some time ago
borrowed a knuckle duster from a
druggist of the name of BassI, telling
Bassl that he needed the weapon for
self-pro'tectlon. The knuckle duster
has not been found, but the doctors
who examined Jlrs. Charlton's body
say that the wounds on the head
were possibly Inflicted by an instru
ment of that kind.
Several circumstances In connec
tion with -tkeease XenH to show that
Charlton, the woman's husband,
against 'whom suspicion was directed
and who has' disappeared, could not
have murdered his wife unaided, as
he was ill and weak from tubercu
losis, and he spent several days in
bed before he disappeared. Hence
conviction of Spolatoft's guilt grows,
despite his claims and repeated de
nials of iny knowledge of the crime.
The police are now inclined to be
lieve that Charlton was also mur
dered and thSt Spolatoff killed both
him and his wife. They have In con
sequence decided to make a search
of the bottom of the lake where the
trunk was found In the hope of find
ing his body, and are re-examining
all the circumstances in the light of
this new theory. Starting with the
fact thnt Mrs. Charlton's body was
found fully dresed and that her cloth
ing -was not bloodstained, while the
s'teet In which her body was wrap
ped and a mattress and several tow
els In the villa occupied by the
Charltons were bloody, the police
have reached the conclusion that the
bloodstains did not come from Mrs.
Charlton's wounds. . They admit that
another crime may have been com
mitted at the villa, where blood was
found on the walls and staircases and
also on the roadway leading from the
villa to the lake. Moreover, no other
explanation can he given of the find
