EXCUSE FOR CAMINETTI
Counsel, Urging "Only Passive Part,"
Ridiculed by Judge.
San Francisco, Cal.. Aug. 30. The
trial of F. Drew Caminetti rolled
swiftly forward yesterday in the
groove worn for it by the trial im
mediately preceding of Maury I. Diggs,
convicted of the same charges. The
witnesses and the evidence of the gov-
ernment were, with few exceptions,
identically the same, the testimony
wsb almost the same, and so far as
could be Judged, the tactics of the de
fense were the same.
Marsha Warrington had the stand
for the greater part of the day. Her
testimony went to 6how that Caminetti
was guilty of assisting in transport
ing her andl,ifi..yiis p
mento to- Reno, in violation of' the
Mann act, and that he persuaded, in
duced and enticed both to go.
The effort of the defense was to
prove that Camlnetti had played a
passive part. One passage of the
cross examination is representative of
its whole trend.
"At the meeting between Diggs,
Caminetti, Miss Norris and yourself,
on tfce Saturday before you left for
Reno the meeting at which you two
girls agreed to go Mr. Diggs did all
the talking and Mr. Caminetti sat
by and agreed to everything by keep
ing quiet. Is that the way you wish
to be understood?"
"Mr. Caminetti agreed to every
"But he agreed passively, did he
Here the court Interrupted.
"Is it your theory. Mr. Howe,"
asked Judge Van Fleet, "that Mr.
Caminetti was taken along also?"
"Our theory is, your honor, that
Mr. Caminetti had nothing to do with
taking these girls to Reno. The party
went and he went along with it. We
don't contend that he was abducted,
but we hold, that because of certain
conditions, that party of four found it
necessary to leave Sacramento without
delay and took the first train, without
regard to its destination."
Against this contention was the tes
timony of Miss Warrington yesterday
that Caminetti had furnished the
money for the trip and that he had
given $20 of It to Lola Norris, out of
which she should buy.ner passage.
In this statement, and in her repeated
affirmations that Camlnetti had agreed
to everything Diggs Bad proposed,
the witness was not shaken.
Today there is no session of court.
Thomas H. Warrington of Sacra
mento, father of Mir Warrington,
took the stand yesterday. He testified
Caminetti called frequently at his
house for his daughter under the
name of "Whitman."
M. J. Sullivan, probation officer of
Sacramento county, testified he had
received no complaints regarding tne
character of Marsha Warrington or
Lola Norris prior to their Reno flight,
with Diggs and Caminetti.
It was brought out that complaints
on Diggs and Caminetti, however, had
been made to Sullivan. Two young
girls were Involved. One is now In

President of Huerta Senate
Says Americans Desire to
Remain in Country.
Washington, D. C, Aug. 30. The
Mexican situation is unchanged today.
John Lind is still awaiting at Vera
Cruz, and no advices of his plans had
come to Washington. Secretary Bryan,
after receiving a message from Lind,
declared the situation "unchanged."
Lind is still acting at his own discre
tion about, returning to Mexico City.
New York, Aug. 30. Senor Cama
cho, president of the Mexican senate,
has telegraphed James A. Scrymser,
president of the Mexican Telegraph
company, requesting him to protest to
President Wilson against the with
drawal of American citizens from Mex
ico. The message declares the Amer
ican colony in Mexico "is satisfied and
tranquil" and that 'tremendous dam
ages" would result from their with
drawal. "There is great alarm here,"
reads the telegram, "over the Amer
ican government's order for the with
drawal of all citizens of the United
States having residence here. You
will understand there is no reason for
this order. The American colony
would be seriously prejudiced in Its
welfare and financial interests were

Camancho, president of the Mexican
senate. Is an aged and much respected

president of th senate. He Is presi
dent of the National Bank of Mexico.
At the time of the revolution against
President Madero, in Febrta'-y last,
Camacho, during the street fighting,
stood on a street corner and told
Mexican citizens that Madero had re
fused to resign at the request of the
Mexican senate. He called attention
to the Imminent danger of Interven
tion and asked Mexican citizens to ex
ercise their patriotism in an endeavor
to avoid such action. A message sim
ilar in substance to that sent to
Scrymser was telegraphed by Came
cho to John W. Dekay of New Y'ork,
who has large interests In Mexico.
TEXT OF MESSAGE.
Camacho's message to Scrymser
says: "The American colony of 40,000:
persons, I am sure would suffer enor-1
mous damage to its Interests and w ell I
being should its members violently
abandon the country in which, 1 re

President Wilson with what I state,
calling his illustrious attention to the
tremendous damages that would result
from his determination, for which in
all loyalty I state there Is no reason,
and which undoubtedly was dictated
against sentiments of justice, and
not by elevated sentiments of the dis
tinguished president of the United
States, but through simple ignorance
of what is actually transpiring in Mex
"The enemy," Camacho says, "are

MISSIONARIES MAY STAY.
The Methodist board and Presbyter
ian board foreign mission have in
structed their missionaries to decide
the question of leaving the country for
themselves, advising them, however,
that their women and children should
be recalled to safety. This action was
taken by the organizations after an
exchange of telegrams with Secretary
of State Bryan in relation to a request
to advise them In the matter of with
drawal of missionaries from Mexico.
The Methodist Episcopal board of
foreign missions received a telegram
from Dr. John W. Butler, superinten
dent of its mission at Mexico City, stat
ing that President Wilson's instruc-
t tions for an American exodus was
"much resented" by the American col
ony. American missionaries of all do
nominations object to leaving.
Nashville. Tenn., Aug. 30. Several
southern Methodist missionaries who
have been ordered from Mexico since
President Wilson's message was pub
lished have wired the mission board
here asking that they be allowed to
remain at their posts. The board had
taken no action today.

Judge Hutchinson granted the writ
on application of Samuel Jacobs, -!
chief counsel for the New York inter

taken to defeat Thaw's lawyers, who
have succeeded in keeping him in jail
safe from the immigration authorities.
I White and Frazer. the only Thaw

Immigration officers who had left

back today on the strength of a report
that Samuel Jacobs, a Montreal at

get Thaw Into court today on a writ
of habeas corpus, thus taking the step
his own counsel abandoned Wednes
day after a court battle. William
Travers Jerome was up before 8
o'clock conferring wtih Jacobs.
Any citizen may apply for a writ , of
habeas corpus when he thinks a pris
oner Is illegally detained, and as
Thaw Is locked In jail on an admitted
ly faulty commitment, those seeking
his deportation hoped to obtain a
writ from Superior Judge Hutchinson,
who came back to Sherbrooke yester
day, unannounced from a vacation.
Jerome would neither affirm nor deny
that, Thaw was the figure in another
habeas corpus proceeding, nor would
Jacobs discuss the matter. Should a
writ be issued and sustained and the
immigration authorities could get
hands on Thaw he would be deported
Boudreau's petition recites that the
petitioner arrested Thaw on a warrant
issued by Justice Duputs of Coatlcook,
that Thaw was "erroneously commit
ted to jail at Sherbrooke without any
form of primary inquiry," that as the
petitioner has "great interest" In the
matter he prays that Thaw be se, at
liberty in order to "redress any wrong
your petitioner has done said Thaw."
He therefore asks that Thaw be freed
unless cause can be shown for his de
tention. Imperator Sails.
