IN RUSH FOR RELICS I Swarm of Curio Hunters in Vi cinity of Maine Wreck. VESSEL STRICTLY GUARDED One Man Heard to Express Desire for a Skull. MYSTERY OVER MERRITT RING Oliver B. Jenkins Recounts Incidents Connected With Resurrection Work in Havana Harbor. "You have no idea of the schemes em ployed by the curiosity seeker in Havana to get aboard the hull of the Maine when the water was pumped out of the coffer dams. The army of curio htinters swarmed to the water front, but the I nited States officials were determined that there should be no desecration of the Maine, and no one was allowed to go aboard." Oliver B. Jenkins of 003 H street north west, official government undertaker, who returned to Washington from Havana yesterday, mad<? the foregoing comment. He says the curio hunters were almost as difficult to keep back from the Maine as the waters of the harbor itself. Mr. Jenkins went to Havana to take charge of the bodies that might be found, and will return to the work after the "cy clone" season of Cuba has subsided. Coveted a Skull. "I never knew that Americans were so forgetful of their dead. I met people in Havana that would have taken any thing from that ship. They wanted some thing. Why, I met a man In a hotel one night?he didn't know me, but 1 knew him ?who wanted a souvenir badly . jie said: "There's one thing I'd like to net off that ship, and that's a skvill.' '\Y ell,' 1 said, "if you ever get a skull off that ship you'll have to take mine with it. 1 tell you that everything on that ship is sacred.' "No one was allowed to come aboard the ship except those connected with the work. The North Carolina dropped an chor in the harbor once, and the officers in charge of the cofferdam work per mitted the jackies from that vessel to go aboard the Maine. I never was so surprised as I was when I found that, those American sailors had tried to ran sack that ship for souvenirs from end to end. They broke into boxes and pried open desks and tried to carrv away everything that wasn't nailed fast. I would like to have had a souvenir myself, of course, but I took nothing ex cept some wood which was thrown out to be burned. Decks Filled With Mud. "We found the decks full of mud. In some places there was five feet of mud on the decks, and I determined that every bit of that mud should be double sifted, so that there would be no chance of anything escaping. We found buttons and trinkets owned by the sailors in that way. "I couldn't be all over the ship at once, and as I had very limited help it was a hard matter to watch everything. I had insisted that I should have men t<> help me that I knew all about. Even with the care we took we had an un fortunate experience with the ring of Lieut. Merritt. "Somehow or other the EI Mundo, a Spanish newspaper, got hold of that ring before I saw It, and, I guess, before any one else officially connected with the work saw it. The first thing I knew, the El Mundo had a long story about tne finding of the ring, illustrated with three enlarged photographs of the ring. "I don't understand how the El Mundo got that ring. It may be they had some one aboard the ship in the guise of a workman. MaJ. Ferguson, the officer in charge of the work, tried his best to find out who gave that ring up to a news paper, but he has not succeeded. He is still working on it. The El Mundo, how ever, took the ring to Minister Jackson, who accepted it, and it has now been turned over to Lieut. Merritt's family, as 1 read in The Star last night. Eleven Bodies Under Turret. "We found eleven bodies under the tur ret which had been blown over by the force of the explosion. Th?iy were fel lows who had lain down there to take a nap. We found Lieut. Merritt's body right where it was supposed to be?in the wardroom. In the pantry we found the body of a boy leaning over a dishwasher. Altogether we have rescued twenty-seven bodies. We found all sorts of little trin kets and pocket pieces scattered about on the decks in the mud. "The work ha* progressed down as far as the berth deck, and there it will rest until after the cyclone season. There can't be any work done there with water and spray dashing over Morro castle a hundred feet high. There are several of ficers who would like to get away from there as soon as possible, too." READY FOR LAUNCHING. Small Steamer Designed for Use on Coast of Cuba. The small combination freight and pas senger steamer which the Maryland Steel Company is building at Sparrows Point, Md., for the Spanish-American Iron Com pany, for use about their properties* on the coast of Cuba, will be launched this afternoon, and will be named "Prank Tenney" in honor of the president of the Pennsylvania Steel Company, which has a large Interest in the Spanish-Amer ican company. Miss Margaret Tenney, daughter of Frank Tenney, will be the sponsor of the boat.

She will be used by her owners in plying between Its various properties in Cuba, both on the north coast at Nipc bay, where the new Mayari fields .-ire located, and to Daiquiri, Santiago and Ninia Nima, on the south coast. u. S. S. MAINE IN COFFER DAM. THE SHIP AS IT APPEARED WHEN THOUSANDS OF CURIO HUNTERS AND SOUVENIR SEEKERS TRIED TO DISMANTLE IT. FARMERS TO BLAME FOR CONVICTION, BEATTIE DECLARES (Continued from First Page.) asked them if th^y had reached a ver- I diet. There came the answer from Fore man Burgess that they had. "What is your verdict, gentlemen?" Beattie winced as keenly as if he had been struck across the eyes with a switch. It was not only the deadly ver dict that was rendered against him, hut the manner of deliverance that stung. Jurors Shout Their Verdict. The jury did not wait for their foreman to speak. Kvery man of them shouted "Guilty," and some repeated the cry, "Guilty, guilty, guilty." Beattie had stood up on demand of the clerk to face the jury when it was rendering its verdict. In one swift, wild look he expressed the agony that had struck in upon him. But the next in stant he had braced himself and de termined to take the verdict smilingly. It was a weird flicker of a smile, more pain- I ful to see than would have been his tears. A curious thing happened?such a thing as a dramatist might have devised as an effective "piece of business." On the in stant with the rendering of the verdict a breeze swept through the open doorway, across the judge's desk, and extinguished the light of the lamp that stood there. Symbolically it suggested the ending of a life. There was a fault in the written find ing of the jury. It had declared Beattie guilty of murder, but had rrot specilled the degree. The jury was sent out again. Not that it vouchsafed Beattie any hope. The tones in which his judges had cried forth their verdict had told him very plainly in what degree they had adjudged him. So he sat and listened blindly to the whisperings of lawyer Smith, of his counsel, and further whisperings from his brother, Douglass. His eyes were those of a man to whom their talk conveyed no meaning. New Trial Denied. The jury returned after nine minutes, entering formally their verdict of murder in the first degree. Hill Carter, of Beat tie's counsel, asked that the verdict be set aside on account of the alleged Il legal character of the evidence taken and the misdirections of the court. In deny ing this motion, Judge Watson said: ' If there has been an error from the bench it has been on the side of the de fendant and not the commonwealth. A* a matter of law, this case has Involved no new principles. In that respect it has been commonplace." A stay of execution was granted In or der to give counsel an opportunity to ap ply for a writ of error when the court of appeals meets in November. Then the clerk said: ' Henry Beattie, stand up." The prisoner did so. and the clerk asked him if he had anything to say why the sentence of the court should not be pass ed upon him. He stood with his left arm jauntily crooked, his right resting lightly on the table. Rut his debonair attitude was cruelly spoiled by the suffering in his eyes. "I have nothing to say," he replied. Sentence Is Pronounced. The sentence pronounced by Judge Watson must rank as a most remarkable utterance from the bench. It was ex pressed in the softest of voices by the fine-featured, youthful, but eminent ju rist. its keynote wap'plty. To a sensi tive man it.would have been a far harder condemnation to hear than would have been a savage excoriation. And Beattie is not stupid. He began to sway slight ly soon after Judge Watson began speak ing, and the judge paused in the sentence to say to one of his counsel: "Mr. Carter, your client has my per mission to take his seat." Beattie sank down quickly into the chair. With hands clasped In front of him on the table and fingering his dead mother's ring, he listened. "I have no desire." said the judge, "to say anything to add to the anxiety of mind or to further disturb the peace of this prisoner. I de>?'re to repeat that the rulings of this court, if they have had any bias, have leaned to the side of the prisoner, and not the commonwealth. I approached this trial with a feeling that, 1 believe, was shared by the jury and the public and by all citizens of Vir ginia--with the hope thai this young man would be able to produce testimony that would exculpate him and satisfy the jury of his innocence. I would have rejoiced Bt the establishment of his innocence and the lifting of this stain from the com munity of Chesterfield county, and I would have rejoiced at the relieving of li 154 estimable family of the shame of this stigma. Had Hoped for Acquittal. "There is no legal right that has not been afforded this prisoner, and it Is a deep, personal disappointment to me that the evidence has turned out as it has, and I exceedingly regret the abso lute necessity of the verdict that has been rendered. "Mr. Reattie, your situation greatly appeals to my sympathy. As a young man you started life with unusual ad vantages. Much that poor youths have to hear in the struggle was spared you. You bore a good family name, you had the devotion of friends, youth and health, and a long life before you with the future foreboding no evil. It is sad that such a prospect should be so dread fully altered. I desire to say nothing in this regard to add to your mortifi cation. and it is far from me in this hour to heap upon you reproaches for your misdeeds." With pity in his voice ttie judge pro nounced the fateful words: "The jury has found you guilty in the first degree and therefore your life is for feited, and the judgment of this court is that November U4 you be delivered into tiie custody of the superintendent of the penitentiary and that between the hours of sunrise and sunset your life shall be extinguished." Judge Watson's voice sank to a whis per as he bowed his head and added: '?May the Lord have mercy on your soul." Meets Blow Unflinchingly. Beattie's fortitude was here really amazing. He had sat with eyes hungrily taking in the sympathy that was in the judge's voice. He never blinked when the death sentence was passed. But at its reverent conclusion he gave a quick, short nod of his head to signify that he had heard and understood. The Jurors who had convicted him had remained in their chairs and heard him sentenced to*die. They showed no outward emotion. The eyes of every man of them looked squarely at the prisoner as the death sentence was pronounced. If he was conscious of their scrutiny he ignored it. Embraced by Father. In the lull that followed the passing of the sentence the youth's father suddenly put out his arms and drew his son to him. Beattie yielded to the pressure as might a little boy. He leaned against his father, and his wide, staring eyes slowly closed, or, rather, half closed, as though he winced in pain. The announcement of the adjournment of the court was made, and Beattie, hear ing it, straightened up. He passed out of the pallid lamp-light in the courtroom and into the darkness of the lawn. His father had passed his arm around the young man's waist, and together they walked slowly, with others following. The big jailer was just on the other side of Beattie, accommodating his step to the slow movement of the condemned man and his father. It was like a fu neral march. Yourig Beattie, cognizant of the legal weapons yet at his disposal, did not sur render as he walked along. Instead he consoled his broken-down father, white haired and wrinkled, and comforted him as he whispered, "I haven't lost yet, father." The drama of the day was not over. A sharp report and a flash rent the thick blackness outside. "My <*orl!" exclaimed Judge Watson, as through his mind flitted the same thought that startled hundreds around him. But it was not another tragedy. The prisoner was seen walking calmly on. The detonation was sjn unusually heavy charge of a photographer's flashlight. Then the little group went gropingly on toward the Jail, behind the barred win dows of which yellow lamps glowed weakly. His father was permitted to pass inside with him. Douglass, his brother, sat on the jail steps and covered his face with his hands and wept. "Poor kid, poor kid!" he sobbed. "1 never thought they'd do It; never." Even New York Doesn't Want Binford Girl on the Stage NEW YORK, September 9?Freeman Bernstein, the New York theatrical man who brought Reulah Binford. the other woman in the Reattie murder case, to this city to be exploited on the stage, has given up the proposition. Hernstein was the theatrical promoter who put Florence Rums, May Yohe and I other similar stars on the boards. ' I've made up my mind to pass the j yirl up," .said Bernstein. "I've had a lot I of freaks in my time, but I've decided I can't stand for her. New York doesn't want her." Kfforts to engage rooms for Miss Bin ford at several Broadway hotels were met by tlie reply in each case that there were no vacant rooms'. She was busy yesterday posinp for mov ing pictures at a place on Staten Island where films are made for the nickel the aters. Girl Is Disillusioned. Beulah Binford's first day in New York was disillusioning. Her morning and afternoon were full of disappointments, and then in the evening came the news of Beattie's conviction. It frightened her. "It's awful," she said. "He isn't cuilty. They didn't prove a thing against him. They're sending him to death for noth ing. I wish I could do. something or say something that would change the case. I know he didn't murder her: I know it. He couldn't have done such a thing. He is a fine man and was always square and kind. He loved his wife, and I know she loved him." Barred in Other Cities. Not only does New York not want the girl, but like word came today from Boston. Mayor Fitzgerald is quoted as saying: "Such spectacles are disgusting and I do not believe a sensible manager would attempt to put pictures of Beulah Bin ford before the public or let her appear on his stage. If any of the Boston man agers try to we certainly shall take all possible measures to stop them." BALTIMORE, September 9.?"Beulah Binford will not be permitted to appear on any stage In Baltimore, and, more over, I have issued orders prohibiting the showing of any moving picture films in which the central figure in the Virginia murder is depicted," said Marshal Far nan when asked if he would give a per mit for the Binford woman to appear here in vaudeville. "The citizens of Baltimore need have no fear that such an outrage to public decency and morals as the exhibition of Beulah Binford in any theater here will be allowed." INTEREST IN BEATTIE CASE. Washington People Eager to Buy Copies of Star's Extra. All doubt as to the acuteness of public interest in Washington in the Beattie murder trial was removed last night when The Star extra announcing the con viction of the youthful defendant for wife murder got out on the street. The thou sands of papers flashed off the big presses were gobbled up In record time, and it was hardly half an hour before the whole city knew that Henry C. Beattie. jr., had been sentenced to die in the electric chair for his part in the midnight tragedy of the Midlothian turnpike. The. people of the National Capital seemed wonderfuly interested in the out come of the Beattie trial. I>ast night newsboys leaving The Star office with bundles of papers under their arms were surrounded by crowds before they had gone half a block, and sold out their stock as fast as they could grab the nickels and pennies shoved at them. Some of them made three and four and five trips back to the office for papers, and picked up more change in a Tew hours t-han they ordinarily make in a week. 1'ptown, when the cry "Extra Star" sounded in the quiet residential streets, windows went up and doors flew open In a hurry. "What's it about?" every one asked. "Beattie case," the newsie would reply, breathless from haste. And then there would be a general rush to buy. Many a roast on the dinner table got cold before eaten, for the "Extra Star" shouts of the newsboys interrupted many a dinner. Napkins were waved in the air to at tract the attention of newsies as they rushed along the streets, and dining room windows in many homes went up with a bang. LIVES WITH BROKEN NECK.

The young woman several days ago picked up a vaccine point, thinking it was a toothpick, and picked her teeth with it. As a result her gums became sore. A physician was called. He was puzzled. The young woman told him about picking her teeth. The physician asked to see the instrument used. Physicians at the hospital say the vac cination will have to take its course. The gums and throat are inflamed and swol len, which shows that the. vaccination is "taking." Births Reported.
