Attorney General Declares State lias Direct Proof of Physician's Guilt. . BALTIMORE, Dec. IS. Dr. U M McKoln, former Mayor of Mcr Rouge. L to-day lost Ills fight for imme diate rclcaao on habeas corpus pro ceedings. He was icmnndcd ('without prejudice" to gtvo tho Louisiana authorities opportunity to present their case. Dr. McKoln was arrested at tho te quest of Gov. Parker of Louisiana who Recused him of murder In con nectlon with tho Morehouse l'arlsh kidnapping last August. ' Throa Judged of tho Haltlmoto Su- . pretne bench, sitting In City Court, denied Dr. McKoln tho light to ball. A despatch from Attorney General Coco of Louisiana to Stnto's Attorney . Leach stated that Dr. McKoln formal ly has been charged with tho munlT of Watt Daniel and TliomiiH Ilichnnls. Tho' despatch ndded that n deputy sheriff was on his wny to Ibilttmorc .with the necessary papers in tho case. Tho following telegram from Gov. Parker of Loulslann to Gov. Itlchle of ' this State was rend by Assistant States Attorney Gnj'lord Leo Clark , and undoubtedly Influenced the action of the court: "Reported loader of the K. K. K.. Dr. B. M. McKoln. nt Mcr Rouge, now under arrest In Baltimore, nnd have Just received wlro he hnd Insti tuted hebcax corpus proceedings bc foro three members of the Supreme bench to-morrow. In view of urgency of this cose, and Investigation now going on, would greatly appreciate your asking Attorney General to re quest a few days' delay In order to bring this man before thcb.tr of Jus tice. Afflda1t chnrglnir him with murdr will lo forwarded as soon as possible. This request made of you by tho Attorney General of Louisiana, who states case Is of vital Importance and the retention of this man essential. Please wire fully at my ex pense your decision." Dr. McKoln was represented by Robert R,. Carnmn. former United states Dlstrlot Attorney, and ho was Mccompanled to court by Dr. Hugh H. Young, noted specialist of Johns Hop kins, with whom tho ono-tlme Mayor of Mer Rouge has been associated since last October. State's Attorney Robert R Leach Jr. and Qaylord Leo Clark, one of his assistants, appeared In opposition to tho writ. Tho authorities were told before tho opening of court that messengers were being hurried to Maryland with extradition puperu. Attorney Carman said ho would fight extradition to th last ditch. NEW ORLEANS, Dec. 2S. "Tho evidence the State has obtained con cerning tho torturo that was Inflicted on Watt Daniels and Thomas Rich ards Is without question, and when It Is made publlo will show a most shocking crime has been committed," declared Attorney General Coco, who lias arrived here to tako part In a conference of State forces to-day. "Nothing mora horrible has over come to my notice," ho added, "and the evidence Is such as to show that the mutilations of the bodies wore not caused by explosion or dynamite. That these men wero tortured Is without any doubt." Positive proof, It Is said at Mer Rouge, will be produced showing that Dr. McKoln, who was arrested nt Baltimore by orders of Gov. Parker, was one of the leaders of tho masked mob (hat murdered Daniels and Richards and ihat he actually partlcl pated In the killing. Three' ofllcers of the Ku KIux Klan were leaders of tho mob, according to the statements of persons hero who are on the Inside of the Stato'B case. One h.gh Klan official, tho story goes directed the assembling of tho mob and had general nupcrvlslon of Its movements. Dr. McKoln, It Is said at Mer Rouge, r-na tho third leader and It Is charged he is tho one who I directly responsible for tho mutlla tlon of Daniels and Richards.

The Smith family was n busy ono all morn lng. It was a hustling day In Sulto No. r,I0 at tho II Itmore. In the tlrst place thero was tho ex citement nnd anticipation of tho trip then thero were things thnt had liocn forgotten or could not 1k packed until tho Inst minute because they wero in uso und had to 1m put In tho hand bug- gage. Thero was tho frequent ml monition to remember whero this or thnt was put. "Don't rut that away whero you can't And It," was heard frequently. Then there was Captain, the Del gian police dog, who has succeeded to the place held by tho former Great Dane. Captain has a good Htromr oollar nnd a ,;ood harness and a strong loasli, and for thai thoic Is a reason I' our years ago when Gov. Smith and Gov.

JERSEY MURDER (Continued) thought It unnecessary to search was tho prcscrvo closet In the cellar, which wns locked with a. hnsp, staple nnd pndlock. It developed later that Mr. Ilrlghnm did not know tho closet was locked and did not havo any key to It. Detectives Timothy Croncr and Lawrence Rums wero sent from Police Heodauartcrs. They went through the house with Mr. Ilrlghnm from attla to cellar, looking Into every .closst. in tno meantime. searching parties of neighbors wero looking through tho wholo district. When the detectives reached tho cellar they saw signs of something havbig been drawn across the floor and asked Mr. Ilrlgham for the key to tho preserve closet. He could not find" one. and sold he never knew the door to bo locked before. The lock was forced off with a sllco bar from the heater. With pocket flashlights the detec tives discovered tho Jjody of 'Mrs. Ilrlghnm thrust Into n cornet' under a drainpipe. She was scratched and I bruised, her clothing was torn, there wns a gash In the back of her head. finger mnrks on her throat, both eyes were blackened, and her hair was filled with excelsior, which showed sho had been felled near ono side of tho cellar, murdered, nnd dragged to the closet. The discovery completely prostrated Mr. Urlgham. A child's swing, a board with long suspndlng cords, w.ih found under the Ixnly. Police Captain Ryan said he thought Mrs. Hrlghnm's assailant had tried to strangle her with tho rope before choking her with his hands. The detectives hurried upstatrs and nnked Virginia If nny one had been In tho houso during tho day. Sho said yos. the colored man who washes tho windows had come into their room about 3 o'clock. "Whero Is my mamma?" she had asked him. Gono for a loaf ot bread," he re- piled, and soon left. "Do you want to wash the win dows?" the little girl .says she asked him. and he replied: '.No, your mother would only want mo to do them over again." Just what ho may havo meant Po llco Copt.

TO WILSON POLICY (Continued) nratlons, but the method of treating the question itself. Tho pendulum swings back. The embarrassments of having so largo a body as Congress deal with the dell cato questions of foreign policy are viewed with alarm by Mr. Lodge him self, who told the Senate on Wednes day that "the final piiwer In regard to negotiation rests and must rest with tho President." He added that "the President Is not liound by any nctlon or advlco we may offer In regard to negotiations any more than tho Senate is bound, when a treaty comes within its Jurisdiction, to accept the advice of tho President." Mr. Lodgo pleaded for a freo hand for tho ISxecutlve. Three years ago the cry was that the Kxecutivc was committing tho country to a course of action which he had no right to do. Foreign governments said they could only negotiate with Mr. Wilson because he was tho constitutional head of the Executive branch of the Government they claimed they couldn't deal with ' Congress. Mr. Wilson's position Is upheld to-day by tho nrgumcnts of Republican leaders In the Senate, not because they favor tho Versailles Treaty or the League or any parts of the treaty which they originally fought, but becauso they are coming back to tiie traditional re latlonshlp which hnd always existed prior to tho Wilson Admlnlstiution of letting tho Chler Execuuvo initiate the foreign policy of the I'nlted States Government.

Mr. Crawford, when Mrs. McSwiney returned, made n formal request that Mrs. McSwiney, tho o'hor woman and the men pickets, get eft the premises. Mrs. McSwiney retorted that the Republicans had rented the otflccs, furnished them and were entitled to say who should occupy them. Scrgt.

Ho left for the scene of the wreck after notifying Prohibition Enforcement Headquarters here. According to the report received by Capt. Cole, the crew of tho wrecked .schooner escaped when the ship struck by Jumping Into the shoal water and wading ashore. A new twist was to-dny given to the recurring story ot bootlegger-eat-bootlegger by nn announcement by John D. Appleby, Prohibition Chief of the zones of New York nnd New Jersey. He said that a bootleg . aeioplane went to Ulock Island on Tuesday looking for a liquor craft. Its pilot found on the Island the crew of a liootlegger stranded there. They de clared that their skipper, after trans ferring his contraband liquor to small boats, had pocketed the profits him self and then sunk his vessel. Where he was now the crew declared thoy had not an idea, lie had told them, they said, that his craft had foun dered on account ot the largo cargo of liquors, but they wero certain he had opened sea cocks and deliberately sent his boat to the bottom. $20,000 libel was placed to-day on tho Rritish freighter Fenchurch. which arrived last week from Mar seilles with $20,000 worth of morphine hidden in barrels of fish.

"It Is quite generally accepted that tho adjustment of the question of reparations must underlie nny eco nomic rehabilitation of Kuropc. and reparations cannot be settled without tho consent of Governments con cerned. The United States cannot assume .to say to ono nation what It shall pay in reparations nor to an-, other nation what It shall accept. "In discussions with foreign tlov rnrnents, tho previous Administration, and the present Adlmnlstratlon have insisted that the question of European debts to the United States is distinct and apart from the question of repa rations, but European nations hold a contrary view, and it Is wholly incon sistent to invito a conference for the consideration of questions in dealing with which the Government is denied all authority by act of Congress. "So far utt the limitation of land naments is concerned, there seems to be at this time no more promising prospect of accomplishment than when the confeience was held in Washington a year ago.
