CROOK WHO ONCE
GAVE SLIP HERE
CAUGHT AT LAST
, "Word ha3 been received; by the' lo
cal authorities from Terre . Haute,
Ind.. of the fact thatT"Harrji St.
Claire," long wanted in that ' city for
tha embezzlement of $2,000,' is cap
tured at' last, after a chase lasting
several years. N -
St. Claire was once in the hands of
the local city court . but got away by
furnishing bonds of ?700 and 'forfeit
ing them just as the chief of police
of Terre Haute reached here with ex
tradition papers. . ' ' :
St. Claire, who went . by many
aliases, was a fortune teller and his
method of operation was-to prescribe
to his victims that they should secure
a sum of money, anywhere from $500
to $10,000, place it in a small bag
which he would furnish, and carry It
about their necks.
He would "bless" this money for
them, the idea being that the money
in the bag would thereupon become
a lodestone to attract , other coin .o
the happy bearer.
St. Claire would play this game in
a city until he caught someone who
would put a large sum, $1,000 or $2,
000 in a bag. He would work, the old
greens-good game, substituting a bag
containing worthless. paper, for the
one containing the - greenbacks, and
make a quick "getaway."
St. Claire had been fn this city only
one day when Superintendent Birm
ingham picked up one. of his circu
lars and recognized him as the man
wanted in Terre Haute. St. 'Claire's
arrest followed, but-he secured a law
yer, furnished bonds of $700 and
made his escape. ' Since then he has
worked the same game successfully in
other cities and the Terre Haute au
thorities trailed him in .vain until. the
present time. .
WANTS $10,000 FOR
ALLEGED BROKEN CONTRACT
Alleging that she refused to sell him
valuable shore property in East Port
Chester after having agreed to do
so, Daniel H. McHugh of Greenwich
brought suit against' Ellen E. Water
man of Greenwich for - $10,000. v The
action had a hearing this morning be
fore Judge Burpee in the Superior
court. McHugh claims that the de
fendant agreed to sell him the prop
erty in 1906 for $8,000. He said he had
a chance to sell the tract afterward
for a profit. The defendant denied
the plaintiff's claim. The trial was
still going on at press hour.
Mifas Margaret Jacoby of 132 Lee
avenue was pleasantly surprised at
her home, Monday evening by a party
of friends who passed the evening in
music and games. Miss Rena Hells
worth and Joseph Curley entertain
ed with vocal selections, and Eliza
beth Gomperts and Harvey Ritchie
contributed recitations. Miss Jacoby
took part in the informal program of
entertainment. Philip and Oliver
Wilkinson sang a duet. Supper was.
served at 11 o'clock. Dancing followed.

OFFICIALS OF WHITE
New York, April 18 General con
demnation of the. White Star line of
ficials for the suppression of news ; of
the Titanic Monday was voiced by 'the
newspapers here. - The. lack of - life
boats was also-generally condemned.
f Following . are extracts from the
From the New York Press "Popu
lar anger blazed -up on the discovery
that the lifeboat capacity of the .de
stroyed giant of the seas - was about
one-third the cargo of human freight.
This passion had been fanned by the
conviction of deceit in the White Star
hom ofOice the day before which
cruelty is , now found to have been a
deliberate . deception of the . heart
wrung relatives 'begging pitifully for
the1 truth. That passion was -inflame'd
to white ; heat by the stupid - boasts
of the home office that its steamship
was unsinkable when the home office
knew the Titanic .had gone to the bot
tom many hours before."
From the New - York - Times "It
seems an" assured fact that if the Ti
tanic had carried-enough lifeboats 'to'
hold all its human cargo there would
have been no loss of life."
From the New York World "Out of
the wreckage emerges one clear and
unmistakable fact if 800 passengers
could be saved with the insufficient
lifeboat equipment of , ihe Titanic, all
of them qould ha;ve beer; saved if there
had been enough boats to take them

7MJr5 John ;Pi9rpont Morgan,hQ,,of
late hag s been gallivanting -about
Egypt ,and Italy, has, celebrated .his
seventy-ftfth birthday, the eminent fi
nancier having been born in Hartford,
Conn.; AprH '17, 1837. ' Americans can
not but feel proud when they read of
what kingly honors have been heaped
Upon our fellow-countryman by the
inn-keepers of effete Europe and ef
feter Egypt, who have not hesitated
to kick out any princeling that might
be occupying the royal suite In order
that our dear Mr. 'Morgan might be
Installed therein. And yet, Mr. Mor
gan is himself the grandson of an
Inn-keeper, Joseph, Morgan, who open
ed a tavern in Hartford shortly after
the close of the American Revolution.
Mine Host Joseph, who had helped to
whip the British, was descended from
one : Miles Morgan, a hardy pioneer
who had settled In Springfield, Mass.,
in 1635. The tayernkeeping Joseph,
from his? cold bottles and hot birds,
accumulated quite a respectable little
fortune for those days. His son, Ju
nius Spencer Morgan, further improv
ed upon the family fortunes, becom
ing an influential banker of New
York and London. Junius Spencer
married Juliet Pierpont, and from that
union was born John Pierpont.
As a boy in the public schools of the
Connecticut- capital the future "male-
a dislike for the . common name of
John, so his fellows obligingly called
him "Pip. This nickname was due
to- a supposed resemblance of young
Morgan to Dickens' ' character. In
those callow days Morgan was a sen
timentalist, and even wrote verse, thus
following the precedent set by his
grandfather Pierpont, a clergymafi-
poet. The English Hih School in
Boston claimed young Morgan for .a
time, and then he was sent to the
University of Gottlngen, Germany. He
was a genial young fellow, 'tis said.

forty-five, has followed In his fath

Anne Morgan has become a philan

many charitable enterprises . designed
to assist the poor. " -
Personally, -Mr. Morgan fs about as
frosty a human .proposition as one
could find. The fatherly .benevolence .
of Mr. Rockefeller, th patronizing' '
geniality of Mr. Carnegie, are. foreign
to the Morgan attitude toward under
lings and who is not an underling to
the great Morgan? Taciturn and. al
most morose, he ia the most inacces
sible man in America. Whether this is
due to a belief in hi - own kingship
over ordinary mortals, or the mark of
a man who is sufficient unto himself
deponent knows not.

wrecker. He is the discoverer of wa

CENTENNIAL OF FAMOUS
NEGRO SLAVE PREACHER
i Yesterday was the sixty-ninth anni
versary of the birth of James Barton
Adams, soldier, poet and scout, whs
won immortality by putting into verse
the famous negro sermon, "What To
Grwlne to Tell de Lawd?" Adams
was born In Ohio, served through the
civil war with an Iowa regiment, and
was a scout during the Indian wars in
Kansas, Nebraska and Wyoming. He
was long connected with Denver Jour
nalism, and "What To' Gwlne to Tril
de Lawd?" was first published in a
Denver newspaper. Since then .it
has gone the rounds of the press of
the , English-speaking - world. The
poem is based on the fervent exhorta
tions of John Jasper, a negro slave
preacher, who died not many years
ago. This year is the centennial of
Jasper's birth in Richmond, V.
Throughout his career the colored parson-
preached the literal interpretation
of the Bible, and' persistently declared
that "de sun do move." Poet Adams,
began , his version of Jasper's sermon,
in this wise: '
When de trumpets am atootln anT &e
stahs dey am a shoothY an de
owls dey am a hootln In de trees.
When 'de earf It am a quakln' an' de
