WIHFS FOLKS FOR MOXEV.
Pittsburgh, Pa.. Aug. 19. A tele
graphic request was received here to
day from Harry Thaw, asking that a
large sum of money be sent to Coati
cook, Quebec, where he was captured.
New York, Aug. 19. Mrs. Mary Cop
ley Thaw took the 9:25 Pennsylvania
train for Cresson, Pa., where sh3 will
await further word from her fugitive
son Harry. She said she had received
no word from Thaw since the letter of
NO EXTRADITION PHOVISIOX.
Washington, Aug. 19. Thaw may be
extradited from Canada on a warrant
charging bribery, but there is no pro
vision in any cf the treaties between
the United States and England for
extradition on a charge of conspiracy,
except conspiracy as it relates to con
spiracy to revolt against a master of
a ship on the high seas. There is no
provision fcr extradition on a charge
of "fugitive from justice." These are
views of the state department of
ficials. Ir none of the treaties is there
a "hot pursuit"' clause, which would
permit the arrest of a fugitive who suc
ceeded in getting across the border
Just ahead of his captors. Such a
treaty did exist in the eld treaties with
Mexico. , . . ,
Immigration officials believe Thaw
could be returned by the Canadian im
migration authorities as an insane or
undesirable alien. Extradition for
bribery, officials point ouf,-. make it es
sential to Thaw's extradition that any
criminal act with which he may ba
charged must also be a criminal or.j
under the Canadian cede. Any re
quest for extradition necessarily must
come before the governor of New
York, and that would confront the fed
eral government, with reccgnizing one
of the contestants for that office.
Short weights are ' cheating the
housewives of Davenport out of $30,
000 a month, according to Iowa State
Deputy Pure Food and Dairy Commis
sioner M. E. Flynn, who today filed
charges against four Davenport ice
dealers and five Greek peddlers.
Flynn charges the ice companies
with delivering their commodity 20
per cent short of its supposed weight
The peddlers he also claims have been
carrying on some rank swindling. In
one case at least the weights were but
half of what they purported to be.
Four charges were filed against the
Tri-City Plate Ice company, two
against the Davenport Ice and Fuel
company, two against the W. C. Claus-
sen Ice company, and one against the
Bettendorf Ice company.
SHORT EVERY TIMrt
In only one case where Flynn and
his assistants followed up the ice'
men and weighed the ice they left did
they find that the weight was as repre
sented. In this instance the delivery
men sold 85 pounds for 10 cents, sup
posedly "rake-off" of which the com
pany knew nothing.
Frequent cases where 34 pounds of
ice were delivered as 45 pounds and
35 for 40 pounds were found by Mr.
Flynn. In general the shortage was
found to be about 20 per cent of the
GRF.EKS ALSO GRAFT.
Tom Flinos, one of the five Greeks
held, used a "peck" measure which
was three quarts short. Joe Christel
had a measure which for rank swin
dling was unequaled. It actually held
but half a peck, enabling Christel to
swindle every person to whom he sold
anything out of half of what they
rightfully had coming.
I. Rimmerman, J. Goldberg and Is
rael Kindleman were also attempting
to get wealthy at the expense of the
public, their measures running from
one to three quarts short of a peck.
ATTORXKV TO PROSKCVTK.
County Attorney Fred Vollmer to
day made the statement that everyone
found guilty would be prosecuted to
Half of the cases will be tried, prob
ably tomorrow, in Justice Maines' of
