New York, June 25. The smug
gling into this country of $300,000
worth of jewels presented to
"Helen Dwelle Jenkins" by a mil
lionaire admirer is soon to result in
the indictment of a New York man
who is at the head of one of the
largest banking and brokerage
houses in the city. Two other men
of great wealth and influence in
their communities one a South
erner and the other a Westerner
will also be indicted.
Four, and possibly six, custom
house inspectors will be charged by
a Federal grand Jury with having
connived with the millionaires .to
admit free of duty, in consideration
of $100 bribes, the gems which
"Jenkins" showered upon the wom
an whose picturesque career was
told in last nighf s dispatches.
Richard Parr, tho deputy surveyor of
the poet, whose clever and persistent
detective work for more than a year
unearthed the 'smuggling, has about
completed his task, and a wonderfully
romantlastory wil be revealed when he
takes $ he standi '
Bitter tragedy has been the first re
ward that Mr. Parr, the government
agent. Iwb received for his brilliant work
In bringing to -light the smuggling. An
expected heir was born dead to-day, and
his wife Is now In a critical condition,
as the result of a telephone- message
sent to Mrs Parr, presumably by some
man In the employ of the men who are
to be indicted.
To gain the confidence of "airs. Jen
kins," It was necessary for Mr. Parr to
masquerade as an admirer of her. He
did so, first telling his wife what he
was going to do.
On Thursday last Mrs. Parr, who had
been kept away from the telephone
previously, chanced to answer a ring.
The voice of a stranger sent her a scan
dalous story about her husband and the
"Jenkins" woman
Shock Is Too Great.
Though she knew It was untrue, tho
shock was so severe to Mrs. Parr In her
condlUon that she fainted and became
hysterical, and In a few hours her hopes
of motherhood were blasted. The Cae
sarian operation had to be performed to
save her life.
Mr. Parr not only knows all about the
smuggling, but likewise all about the
sensational robbery of "Mrs. Jenkins"
at the Hotel Lorraine late la 1903. when
she declared that all her Jewels had been!
The secret agent could not bo Induced
to talk much to-dav, but from a source
equally as well informed as he your cor
respondent learned nearly the complete
story of Jhe Jewels. It Is this:
On Juno 25, 1309, "Mr. and Mrs. J. W.
, Jonklns arrived hi New Tork on the
Lusltania from Europe. They had been
making a whirlwind tour of the Old
"World for over three months. "Jenkins"
was the name assumed by the Western
millionaire. They wero accompanied from
Europe by a Southerner, who had known
the woman before the Westerner became
Infatuated with her. Through the West
erner's interest in the woman and her
friendship for tho Southern man, tho lat
ter nad been enabled to borrow large
sums of money from the love-crazed
millionaire, with which to finance some
Southern enterprise.
Brlns Eleven Trunks.
Tho pair brought back on the Lusltania
eleven b!g trunks and"" three smaller
baggage contraptions. The trunks were
filled with the most costly laces, gowns
lingerie, and gloves by the hundreds of
pairs made especially in Naples for the
millionaire s charmer.
The Southerner, according-to the story
toia Dy "iars. j emeus" to the govern
ment officers, was the chief medium In
-the smuggling of the Jewels the Western
man had purchased for her and also for
his wire's children in the Western home.
Customs ofllcers accepted the declara
. tion of "J. W. Jenkins" that he and
"Mrs. Jenkins" had brought back from
Europe only $100 worth of dutiable goods
the amount allowed by law. Tour cor
respondent to-day saw the original dec
laration made by "Jenkins." it con
tained also a sworn statement that they
had taken abroad with them furs,
Jewelry, and other like articles to the
valuo of about $5,000.
These, of course, -were not dutiable.
The customs inspectors assigned to the
baggage went through the farce of ex--amining
their trunks and handbags, and
cleared the entire lot In a jiffy. Then

Will Investigate Diaz Administration and Seek to
Right Any Flagrant Wrong.
Mexico City, June S3. Francisco Madero
has Issued janother manifesto to the Mex
ican, people. In which he says that the
taxes are to ,be distributed equaUy among
the rich and the poor, but that while
waiting to Inaugurate the new laws he
wlJJ call upon the governors and other
officials of the states, to see that small
landholders and merchants are taxed
lightly, while the heavier burdons are
put on the larger owners.
Capitalists of foreign nativity are to
receive absolute protection, but Madero
hopes that they will not attempt as form
erly to try to Influence the governing
authorities In any way to secure special
privileges, as he says it will be useless.
He assures the people that Justice will
not be for the fortunate and privileged
alone with Injustice ,for the ordinary
citizens as heretofore, but the poorest
worker will have the same rights as
the rich employer.
WIU Treat Soldiers Well,
He promises to .Investigate the doings
of the Diaz aomlnlstratlon, and that
which la being done not In accordance
with the law wiU be remedied, and the,
guilty jib far asposslble will be punish
ed. He recommends to the revoluUonary
soldiers that they treat the defeated
rebels as brothers. In the course of the
whole war the federals sympathized with
the insurrection movement and believed
that the triumph of tho Diaz govern
ment would be a calamity for the coun
try. Naturally, says Madero, the fed
erals had little Interest In winning bat
tles and the federal army was not realy
defeated. Defeat came only to the dic
tators, who were driving them. How
was it possible he asks that the federal
soldiers could win when they even per-
ferred to die that Mexican people might
regain their liberty.
He hopes that the press will co-operate
with him frankly and sincerely, but says
that as a simple citizen or President or
as the occupant of any office into which
he might come he will consider as friends
only that part of the press which crit
icises the faults that he commits and
shows him his errors. He will look with
suspicion upon newspapers which ap
prove his every act
He says that as a simple citizen of

political aspirations and that he intends
to run for governor of Moreles.
A. Drtvate dlsoatch from Chihuahua says
that Orozco, Madero's principal general
at the battle of Juarez, is being urged

logical candidate of the Maderlsts party

When the car stopped at Essex street

Declares-that Men Who Bay Their

No Better Than the Burglar Who
Breaks Ino a Home Believes In

ers-tProfoand Impression.
Rev. Dr. John Reid Shannon,
pastor of Metropolitan Memorial
M. E. Church, last night declared
from his pulpit that "every honest
man ought to thank God that we
have a President in the White
Housewho has the moral backbone
to refuse pardons to the bank
wreckers Charles W. Morse and
John R. Walsh."
The sermon of Rev. Dr. Shannon
created a profound impression among his
parishioners, some of whom, it Is under-1
stood, had been favorable to the pardon
of the Imprisoned bankers.
Following his introductory, Rev. Dr.
Shannon continued:
"These capitalists undertook to use the
community as a sponge to squeeze at
their pleasure. They carried their life
like a flame to burn up the savings of
other people. We havo a right to take
grim pleasure In the fact that these
transgressors are picked off In the pres
ence of tho nation and .shaken until their
bones rattle before men from tho Atlan
tic to the Paclflo. That Is In the moral
atmosphere of our nation like a storm on
a wilting, sultry summer day; a storm
that sweeps away all the poisoned air
and leaves the atmosphere pure and
fresh and full of new life so that people
say: 'Thank God for such a storm.

Rfehteons Indignation.
"We need In our country more of that
fiery righteous Indignation that scorches
and burns to ashes dishonesty, even
though millionaires bo tho subjects of
such indignation," ho said.
In speaking of the relation of money
to political offlceholdlng. Dr. Shannon
said: ,
"Money has no right relation to pollt
cal offlceholdlng. Tho man who buys
his way into the House or Sonato is no
better than the burglar, who, by means
of force, breaks Into the home where
ho does not belong. When It becomes
known that a man has used briber to
put himself In a high position in national
life there ought to be toward him on
tho part of the people a fire of righteous
wrath, like the fire on the prairie that
consumes the vermin nestling In the rot
ting growths thereof."

London. June 25 Although the spec
tacular events attendant upon the corona
tion of King George and Queen Mary
have passed into history with the crown
ing Itself, there yet remain many attrac
tions for tho great throngs that will hold
London, determined. It seems, to drink
the coronation cup to Its dregs. There
was a brief -pause in the rush of enter
tainment and ceremony 'to-day, but on
to-morrow the festivities modified to a
certain extent, will be resumed and will
termlnato only1 when the royal couple
depart next Sainrda? for their tour of
Ireland and Scotland.
To-morrow night will be gala night at
Covent Garden and, of course, all roy
alty will be present That Is, all who can
get into tho theater, for It Is nono too
large. The performance will be maae up
of music and the ballet, and the decora
tions are said to be something wonder
ful in the coronation era of grandeur.
More than one hundred thousand pink
roses and ramblers will be used in orna
menting the green trellises, the columns
and borders of the boxes, and p'ink
carnations and white and gold orchids
will fill out the royal Initials and other
designs. After the opera the Countess
of Derby will give a ball.
Notables to Be There.
There will be an especially attractive
programme at His Majesty's Theater on
Tuesday night, Immediately after the
garden party at Buckingham Palace, In
which all the notables of the London
stage world will do honor to the King.
A prologue written for the occasion by
Owen Seaman Is to open the proceed
ings, and this will be followed by scenes
from "Money," the "Merry Wives of
Windsor," "Tho School for Scandal."
"Julius Caesar," and "The Critic." Ben
7onson's "The Vision of Delight"
will then be given, and the performance
is to concludo with the singing of tbe

The King and Queen will be received
on their arrival at the theater by Sir
Herbert Tree and Sir John Hare, the
latter of whom will remain at their
majesties disposal throughout the even

The entire grand tier of the house has
been rearrange'd so as to form tho royal
box. In which the King and Queen and
their principal guests are to be seated.
while two large boxes and 250 stalls have
also been engaged by the court officials.
The design for the decoration of the In
terior of the theater is a novel one and
consists almost wholly of real fruit of
the most vivid colors, surrounded by its
own leaves. For the royal boxes and the
vestibule in which their majesties will
hold a reception of their guests, however,
great masses of crimson rambler roses,
hydranges, and lilies will be utilized.
Mast Wear Conrt Dress.
In the stalls and dress circle the public
will be required to wear court dress or
uniform, and In other parts of tho thea
ter evening dress.
There has been an enormous demand
for seats, and some very high prices
have been paid. The prlcoa of those
places open to the public were fixed by
tho management as follows:
Private boxes, from J2C2.50 up to $525;
orchestra seats. $105; dress circle, $26 to
$52, and amphitheater; $S.50.

It was the rush of tho numerous auto
moblllsts in the road at the time, all of
whom were speeding to get out of tho
rain, which caused the accident Mr.
Brush, who was operating the automo

"That neither of us was seriously in

last night. "The accident occurred so
quickly that neither of us realized until
tho machine came to a standstill at the
bottom of the incline that we had left
the road. Our escape was "almost mirac
ulous and I am sure that if either of
us had been thrown from our seats tho
results would have been serious."
Mr. Bush declares he kept to the side
of the roadway because- he feared being
struck by reckless motorists who were
speeding by him every minute. He says
