Great Interest in O'ase of Canadian
Woman Who Chopped Off
Husband's Head.
Makes No Plea for Clemency ; Pe
titions Being Circulated in
the Dominion.
By Leased Wire to The Tribune.
SAULTE STE. MAltlE, Ont., May 20.
Prom all over Canada letters of sym
pathy and inquiry are pouring in re
garding tho case of Angelina Ncopoli
tana, who is in tho lockup under sen
tence to be hanged as soon as her child
is born.
The execution has been set for Au
gust 0. Tho date was determined af
tor a calculation by the .jail doctor. Sho
chopped her husband's head otT with
an ax on April 1(5, this year. If pub
lic interest in tho womau spreads at
the rate it has been growing, it is con
sidered lik'el3' the governor-general at
Ottawa will soon find tho case one
worthy of his attention.
Word has been received here that
petitions for clemency arc in circula
tion in different, parts of the Dominion.
There is a pronounced state of interest
in this community on tho subject. Most
of tho letters express astonishment
that a woman at this day, no matter
what the degree of her mental or moral
degradation or guilt, should be ordered
into eternity so soon after the birth of
her child.
"The middlo ago barbarity of judi
cial procedure in this case is niado even
more appalling," says one protestant,
"by the coin-blooded calculation the
oQiccrs of the law have now had to
make in determining the probable date
of the advent of the unborn child."
The Neopolitana woman is a prob
lem to the alienists who have examined
her. They do not know whether to as
cribe her extraordinary indifference
over her fate to blunted mentality and
moral pcreoption or to what might be
expected to bo tho terrible palsying
shock to which her mind was subjected
vheu she slew her husband.
"I am ready to die," is the expres
sion the woman keeps repeating to all
with whom she comes in contact.
Even with the vision of tho gallows
growing closer, she steadfastly refuses
to make any plea for clemency or to
consider an" inquiry as to hor mental
conditon. She asked no favors since
she was put into the cell. She reads
the Biblo constantly. If tho prospect
is terrifying to hor of having licr new
born baby torn from her breast in or
der that sho may be put to doath in
duo form of law," she (iocs not show it
in her manner.
"I am ready to die and must meet
my maker," sh'e said today to the keep
er of tho jail.

Daring Break for Liberty by
Joliet Prisoners Working
' in Quarry.
Two Recaptured as They Were
About to Enter Woods;
Others at Large.
By Associated Press.
JOLT EH, 111., May 20 Six convicts
under sentence from one to, twenty
years escaped from the guard at the
state penitentiary here in the darkness
caused by n sudden storm today. Two
of them were recaptured two hours
later hiding in the woods: Tho other
four, all wearing the gray convict garb,
are being hunted by posses.
Tho men who escaped were:
William Buisch, Winnebago .county,
sentenced in 3911, one to ten years;
confidence game.
R. A. Adlcins, La SaUo couuty, re
ceived in 3910, one to twenty years;
Ocorgo Connors, Cook county, rob
bery; indofinitc.
Joseph Folke. Cook county, received
1909. one to ten years.
Ed Miller, Jo Diivics county, burglary
and larceny.
Henry Johnson, Cook county, rob
bery. This afternoon 240 men were at work
in the prison quarry a block from the
prison. They wore marched to and
from the prison under guard.
The storm came up about A o'clock,
suddenly and with unusual sovcrity. The
lines wore formed for tho march to
prison 'ard, but before tho men could
start it became as dark as night.
No count was made of tho prisoners
until the storm had ceased and the
men assembled in tho yard ready to
return to the quarry. Then tho count
showed six missing.
All the prisoners Were lakon to their
cells immediately,' but a complete roll
call was necessary before tho names of
tho missing prisoners could be learned.
By that, time the h.d gained two
hours' start.
Miller, the only one tf the convicts
garbed in stripes, was captured in the
woods by a negro, Joseph Pryor. The,
negro had not hoard of the escape, but
recognized the prison suit and ovcr
powerod Miller after a fight.
Henry Johnson was taken h- Andrew
Saxon "and Henry Dcmniond, railroad
detnutives, just as he was about, to en
ter tho woods. Pryor, marching Miller
into Joliet, his arms bound, met the two
detectives and turned his prisoner over
to them.
The Joliet: police force and most of
the prison guards at once began the
search for tlio others. The men eluded
their pursuers, however, and no trail
of them as yet has been found All
cities within 100 miles were notified.

army men particularly and to all horso
men of tho country in general. These
officers, who take" with fheni twelve

would be tremendous.
This is in line with tho policy of tho
war department to devciop a supply of
first-class cavalry horses. No pnrt oi
the army maneuvers in Texas is being
more carefully followed than the work
of the cavalry horses, the army officials
recognizing the importance of having

than a raco to cover more thau o000

Special Cable to The Tribune.
LONDON, May -20. Though the au
lobiobile fits best, into the whirl of the
socioty season, tho horse has by no
means' lost the support of British no
tables. Horse racing, a draw to every
class of Britisher, is an ull-the-year
round sport, but hunting is conlinod lo
a few months in winter and early
spring. And when hunting people have
run their last fox In oarth, the owners
of thoroughbreds begin to think of the
international horse show, which now
turns the London conter known as
Olvmpia every Juno into the very hub
of" the social wheel, iust; as the MndiBon
Square show is tho big Now York draw
every winter.
As a matter of fact, as cars got
cheaper enthusiasm for splendid horse
flesh increases, partly because tho
craze is an old tradition of the-titled,
land owning class of England. It may
be said that real knowledge of horses
is limited lo a small circle, but (ho men
composing it are so influential and inde
fatigable that it has become the fash
Continued on Pago Three
Arrangements Made by Which
Association Will Hold Its
Permanent Relief, It Is Stated,
Will Come From New
. York City.
Negotiations which have bcen"on for
several da3ws have been concluded,
whereby tho Y. M. C. A. is to be tided
over the danger point of losing the
valuable property on State and First
South streets. The association is with:
in a week of the last day of the timo
given to redeem the property from the
sheriff's sale of several months ago.
While the arrangement docs not mean
that tho necessary funds have been
raised lo liquidate the indebtedness
against tho association building, which
amounts to nearly $50,000, it is certain
that temporary accommodations have
been gained to tide the association over
to such a" time when , definite arrange
ments, it is asserted', will be made,
leaving no dou.bt as to the association's
holding its property.
The temporary loan, which will .be
used to satisfy thc holders of a judg
ment, was made in New York through
tlio national association. After the
expiration of .this tcmporaiy loan a per
manent loan will bo secured through
New York financial agencies finally
relieving all danger of the homo's being
lost to the local association. The dc
tails'of the loans, the amounts and who
will make the second and permanent
loan have not been given out- How
ever, it is a sett-led fact that the Salt
Jake Y.-vM. O. A. will not be compelled
to abandon its substantial quarters.
Judgment was rendered against the
association six months ago. Under the
.judgment the association had six
mouths in which to redeem tho prop
erty following the sheriff's sale. This
term expires next Saturday. Efforts
were niado to raise the amount needed
for the redemption by popular sub
scription, but this failed to a measure,
although a large part of the amount was

Providing a! persons signing a peti- j
tion presented to the county commis-
sioncrs Saturday afternoon aro bona i
fido voters and that other legal tech- F
nicnlitics do not ensue, indications aro K
that there must be called a special elec- jj
tion in Salt Lake county outside of in- f
corporatcd cities and towns to deter- ?
mine whether or not the sale of intoxi- f
eating liquor will bo permitted. A pe-
tition signed by 3470 purported bona,
fide citizens of the county was received
by tho commissioners asking that an
election be called.
It is allcgod, however, ,by some or $
the persons signing .this petition that ,
they were induced to attach their sig-na- !
tures through fraud and misrepresen- J
tation of facts concerning the new law, j
as was set forth in the counter peti- !
tion presentedV to the commissioners on
Friday. This counter petition, which
was for the purpose of asking the com- 2
missioncrs to strike off the names of
the signers from the petition asking ;i
for an election, was signed by 210 citi- jj
zens of the county. ij
Sufficient Signatures Bemain, i
With these names stricken off, how- j
ever, there would still bo sufficient j
signatures on tho petition presented ,
Saturday to require an election. Both J
petition's will be taken up and consid- j
crcd at the regular meeting of tho i
board of county commissioners on Mon- J
day. Members of tho board Saturday I
declined to discuss the matter, it being
stated that there are several points of ''
law involved which will probably result
in a complicated situation. t

the law provides that the county will j

filed last Friday by 210 persons, that j
their names were secured on tho rep- M
rcscntatiou that they would have to t1
call an election aud vote dry if thoy '
wished the county to bo dry. In this i

It is claimed that' tho number of H
names on tho petition presented Satur- t
day represents approximate- 40 per ,
cent of the bona fide citizens of the
couutv outside of incorporated cities
and towns, and even with the names 1
on the counter petition stricken off, j
ther would still be 25 per cent loft, )
which is sufficient, providingr.il of
