GREEK LEADER BITTERLY ASSAILS BRITAIN'S ACTIONS
NETERER REFUSES TO
HOLD KRAUSE; LAnER
SEATTLE, Not. 23. ? Judge Jere
miah Neterer decided this afternoon
that he had not the power to order
Ed want Kmuse'a removal to Juneau
to answer a charge of kidnaping Wil
liam Christie. Krause was immed
iately rearrested on a state warrant
charging him with being a tugutive
from justice and will be held until
the extradition papers from Governor
Strong of Alaska r.-ach Governor Lis
Krauae In City Jail.
The warrant charging Krause with j
being a fugitive from a kidnaping
chargo was served by Constable
James Shannon and Detective Ralph
Jones, and was sworn to by U. S At
torney Clay Allen. Krause was taken
to tho city jail.
Judge Neterer held that nnder Sec
tion 1014 of the Roviced Statues of the
United States, under which the orig
inal warrant was drawn. Krause could
not be removed, but that he could be
sent back to Alaska upder. another sec-.
tien. In short, the cenrt ruled that;
there is a line of demarkation be
tween the laws of Alaska and the
general laws of the United States,
and that kidnaping as charged in this
instance is not an offense against
the United States. Allen, owing to'
the Importance of getting Krause.
charged and tried in Alaska as quick-!
ly as possible, will not appeal from
the court's decision, he said, although
he thinks the court erred.
Attorneys Grab Money.

proceedings. His rearrest was no sur

DENIED BY COURT
Antonio Hernondez was this morn

by Judge Robert W. Jennings. Hern

ago, after being confined In the feder

chikan which, he claimed, did not
state the crime of which ho was ac
cused and did not accuse him of a
crime under the laws of Alaska.
Hernandez alleged further that the
court at Ketchikan had no jurisdict
ion in his case.
Judge Jennings, as basis for his de
cision, stated that it is not necessary
that the exact time, place and char
acter of the crime be stated In the

the Jail here, and that tho jurisdiction
of the Commissioner at Ketchikan
was undoubtedly established.
