The man's tone was that of a care-
j ful, clerky person anxious to have his
manuscript read smoothly. His eye- , oped that the murdered woman's jew
els had just been found in his lug
gage. Captain Scott was present when
Charlton made his confession, and said
to chief Hayes:
"I can hardly keep my hands off him,
but I know It is better to have the
law deal with him."
Other PnenfircrM Surprised.
Charlton's arrest for murder sur
prised every one who made the voyage
with him from Italy.
Wednesday nlgnt, when on the eve
of what he must have assumed would
be the trying ordeal of landing, Charl
ton Invited one of the few American
women in the second cabin, with whom
he had formed an acquaintance, to an
informal supper. Charlton opened
two bottles of champagne during the
repast, the steward said, and seemed
In the best of moods.
Yesterday morning, although- he had
retired late the night before, he was
up before 7 oclock and looked up
steward Reinhold. He told the stew
ard he was short of funds and wanted
to borrow $5. Reinhold accommodated
him. Charlton said he expected rela
tives to meet him at the pier and sup
ply him with plentj- of money out of
which he would repay the debt.
"Don't you know that the autopsy
showed that your wife was not dead
when she was put in the trunk?" one
of the detectives asked the prisoner
when he was being questioned.
Charlton lost his self control.
"Oh, my God, it could not be," he
cried. "She must have been dead "
"Would Protect "Wife's ISnnic.
The youth showed a curious desire
to protect the reputation of the wo-
man he killed and refused to answer
questions bearing on her life abroad.
"Is my wife's name going to appear
In this?" was one of his first questions.
After Charlton had been led away
to his cell, Capt. Scott sat with his
hands clenched tight about his walk
ing stick and told his story. Scott Is a
brother of the murdered wife.
"When he made up nls mind that
Charlton would come back to this
country he went to Xew York to the
National City bank, where Charlton
was employed and obtained a descrip
tion ofthe man and a sample of his
handwriting. Then he went to Ho
boken and saw chief of police Hayes,
but found that the chief had laid" all
traps for the apprehension of Charl
ton. While he was giving the de
scription of the man, he was informed
that the Princess Irene had just
"Aren't you Porter Cnariton?" asked
Capt. Scott as Charlton came off the
boat, just as Scott reached the dock.
He denied this emphatically and
said his name was Jack Coleman.
Scott hesitated to order the man's
arrest and forced Charlton to write
his signature,- which tallied so accu
rately with a sample In his possession
that he felt sure that no mistake was
being made. Charlton was then taken
to headquarters, where he again
signed his name. Again there was
marked resemblance to the handwrit
ing in Scott's possession, but there was
yet doubt in the minds of the police

Is asked for the Denver Union "Water
company in the district court here by
a number of private citizens.
They declare that the present situa

caused by the shutting off of the main
