A 3 the treaty neared this stage, the most generally debated question ap peared to be whether an attempt should be made to lay down a specific definition of a merchant vessel as bearing on the relation of the arming of such craft to the proposed Mimita tion of auxiliary naval craft to 10,000 tons and also the banning of subma rineg as commerce lestroyers. At the conclusion of a long session of the na val experts yesterday it was apparent they were having difficulty in reach ing agreement on some of their tech nical definitions, and it was intimat ed that the question of defining a merchant ship within the meaning of the treaty 'has been, or might be, brought up again. Although it was the original inten tion . of the American delegation at least, as indicated by Mr. Root in the full committee sessions, not to at tempt to define a merchant ship be yond the , definitions of international law, some of the delegates are known to be making a particular study of the question and to regard it as one that cannot be passed over. The Italians Japanese and French all are said to feel that failure to place restrictions o.i the arming of - merchantmen not only might vitiate the project to limit individual tonnarc of auxiliary wircraft but also mi?hi result in a great disadvantage to nations with mall vv nant fleets. The British delegation, on the oth er hand, having given warning at the time of the failure of the proposal for limitation of submarine tonnage and of the size of submarines that in these circumstances it could not con" sent to any restriction of potential anti-submarine forces, was said to be prepared to bring the question before the full committee, if necessary, and to argue that merchant 3h'ps may carry guns without, Decerning aux" iary war essels, and thu? salntct to attack without warning by subma rines. ' Although the Shantung controver sy, meantime, remains in deadlock, there was evide.it in both the Ameri can and British group3 todpy a belief that the meditation of Secretary Hughesjtnd Arthur J. Balfour was al most certain to bring the Japanese and Chinese together again on this long-discussed issue. In American quarters hope was expressed for an agreement during the week. DID NOT JFFER FIGHT Had Forced Taxi Driver to Help Him Elude r New York Police (Mr Aaaclatd Proa) Philadelphia, Jan. 9 Luther Bod- Ambassador Harvey Injured in an Auto Accident in London Wy, the young negro alleged to be the slayer of two New York detectives last Thursday1 night, was captured early today in South Philadelphia He surrendered without a fight. The police said he was heaily armed. Boddy was captured as the result of atip furnished ,by Amo3 Scott, a deputy, sworn in as Philadelphia's first negro magistrate. The search for Boddy had continued since Sun day when he was left stranded in a taxicab at Fallsington. Boddy, attired in women's cloth ing, eluded the .vigilance of the New York police and made his way to the Hudson tubes terminal in Newark, late Sunday night, where he engaged Adam Adubato, a taxi driver of Newark, to take him to Jersey City. There Boddy is declared to have re vealed .himself to the taxi driver as VBoddy, the murderer," after having threatened him with a revolver and robbing him of about $1.75, all the money he had., Adubato, according to the story told Chief of Police Culliton here to day, was compelled by Boddy at Jer sey City to take the road to Philadel phia. The negro, he said, frequently threatened him with the revolver and demanded speed, declaring that there was a reward of f 10,000 for him, and if he "had' to go" he did not care who wer.t with him. Boddy, according to the driver, said ihe wanted to get to Canada. After passing Trenton Adubato ran out of gas. The negro compelled him to stop a car going toward Lang' home, Pa., telling Adubato to ask for gas, and saying if he made a false moe it would be his last, instead of asking for ga3, however, Adubato jumped on the running board of the other car and exclaimed. "For God'g sake, step on the gas, I've got a murderer in my car and he wants to get both of us." Without more urging the other driver jumped his car ahead, follow ed by a bullet from Boddy's revolver, which smashed a headlight. Heed less of the lowered gates at a railroad crossing the strange driver dashed on and smasshed both gates at the other side, just as an express train whizzed past.. At Oxford valley, Adubato telephoned the Trenton po lice, and a man hunt was organized to capture the fugitive. ' Boddy, according to the Newark taxi driver, besides wearing woman's attire, wore a woman's wig, and the veil he wore, covered a long scar on his face and enabled him to elude the New York police. PRELIMINARY STEP TAKEN TO ENJOIN CAPITOL REPAIRS Bill in Chancery Filed in Leon Circuit' Court 2 GROUNDS ARE CITED Alleged Plans Deviated , From and Money Not Available WIH PLAN TO COMPLETE TABERNACLE ONE DATS LABOR Business Houses Asked to Close Wednesday Afternoon 'Bj Associated Pivaal Tallahassee, Jan. 9.

Hunter and Mayo Turpentine company, a corporation, all of Mar ion county, .against the board of commissioners of state institutions, and the contractors to whom con tracts were awarded for construe tion of addition to the the Capitol building, by which preliminary in junction is sought to restrain the board from paying out to the con tractors any money on account of the contracts let to them, and to restrain the contractors from doing any fur ther work upon said capitol exten sion until the further order of the court. The bill prays that upon the final hearing of the cause the in junction be made perpetual. No date has been fixed for a hearing upon application for temporary in junction or restraining order, but as the matter is of "great public im portance counsel for th erespective parties will agree upon as early a date as practicable. The application for injunction is said to be based upon two grounds, namely, the alleged substantial de viation by the board of commission ers from the plan alleged to have been contemplated by the legislature when the appropriation bill was passed, and tha tfhe funds for the purpose are not available out of moneys not otherwise appropriated. It is understood that the attorney general has received a copy of the bill and a letter fromsolicitors for the complainants requesting him to indicate a time when it would be agreeable to present to Judge E. C. Love, judge of the second judicial circuit, the application for a tem porary restraining order. Mr. Bu ford will probably indicate some time tomorrow his prefeence as' to the time of pesenting the matter.
