Fol lowing the prosecution's conferences at Salisbury early today. Assistant District Attorney Doollng, of New York, said further arrests probably will be made. Detective Cunlff told Concord rest dents he would return in a few days" to arrest probably two persons, one a man whose name has been men tioned frequently in connection with the Means case. Feeling Is Iatense. Feeling Is Intense following the holding without ball of Gaston B. Means in the mysterious death of Mrs. Maude A. King, rich widow, whose business adviser he was. Trouble, which might easily have resulted In a battle, developed through attempts to disarm New York officers and to seize certain of Means papers that it was believed were held by Assistant "District Attorney John T. Doollng. of New York city, and his associates. It came with a raid upon the St. Cloud Hotel, the New Yorkers headquarters, led by Afton and Brandon Means, brothers of the alleged murderer. That shooting- did not develop may he attributed to the coolness ot Mr. Doollng, the flrmness of Attorney General Manning 'of North Carolina and Solicitor Hayden Clement, and the determined action of Capt. William Jones, of the New York police de partment DooIIar Served WltsTWHt. The trouble developed with the ad journment for recess of the prelimi nary hearing-. As soon as Justics Pitts announced recess at 11:30 Gas ton Means, with a cigar stuck in a corner ot his mouth, strode over to the table at which Mr. Doollng was fathering up his papers. Sheriff Caldwell, approaching the New York er on the other side, shoved a writ Into his hand. Means edged nearer to Mr. Dool lng, who had already been told what was coming. Mr. Doollng looked up and saw the big; man leering- down at him. "I refuse to talk to that man." said Mr. Doollng-, Indicating Means. lou make him stand aside."

SDecifled and unsDeelfled. Including the original of the "second will" of James C. King-. This -will has been pronounced a forgery. Means was to get $1,000,000 if he succeeded in having it probated. The New Yorkers left the court room and, with the North Carolina prosecutors, walked to the S:. Cloud Hotel. Meantime Afton and Brandon Means had hurried up the street. Soon the hotel lobby was filled with men, to whom the Means brothers gave instructions. Sheriff Caldwell walked to Mr. Doollng and asked that he obey the writ and deliver the paPTj In his possession. At the request of Mr. Doollng, correspondent took the writ to copy It for him. The reporter returned just In time to follow Afton Means and his friends to th- recoid floor of the hotel, where Mr. Doollns had retired to room No. 54. At the head of the stairs Afton Means stopped. "Now. sheriff, get those papers." ne shouted to Caldwell. "You can't quit on this. You can't back out. Go In there and take them." The reporter went into No. 84, and saw Mr. Doollng sitting on the bed near Mr. Manning and Mr. Clement. P. C McDuff le, counsel for Mrs. King's mother, waa present, as were Captain Jones and Detectives Jones and Cun nlff. The door was closed and then opened by Sheriff Caldwell, who entered with Mr. Williams, of counsel for the defense. The latter man demanded the "documents." The attorney gen eral continued writing. Mr. Williams asked Mr. Doollng what he was going to do. Iulate Selsare. "On the advice of the attorney gen eral of this State and of Solicitor Clement. I shall refuse to turn over any papers, said Mr. Doollng. "Get those papers! Selie them: shouted 'Mr. Williams. "Gentlemen, are you going to try to take papers from u by force?" asked Mr. Doollng from his seat on the bed. The door opened again and Afton Means entered. Behind him came several deputy sheriffs. In the hall. Girls! Women! Take Cascarets If Constipated They liven your liver and bowels and clear your complexion. Don't stay headachy, bilious, with breath bad and stomach sour. Tonight sure!

"You're not going to have any papers," said Mr. Doollng, firmly. Captain Jones got up and stood be side the assistant district attorney. "I want to warn you," the pistol ex pert quietly said, to nobody In par ticular, "that I am armed. We are all armed." "I want to warn you I am armed," chimed In Detective Jones, and step ped beside Doollng. "I'm armed," said Cunnlff, moving over. Every Iwtruder realized that these utterances meant that If anybody at tempted a seizure the New Yorkers would use their revolvers. Caldwell hesitated, though there is nothing of the coward about him. Then swift action by Captain Jones turned the tide. Climax t Near Tradgey. Springing toward Afton Means, he shouted: "This is my room. tyW you get out before I throw you out!" Means went away from there and his friends went with him. Then Attorney General Manning handed to Mr. Williams several pages which he had written. "Here Is your answer." said Mr. Manning. "Mr. Doollng will not sur render any papers to the sheriff. I have advised him not to. Any papers he has and we don't know what he has except he hasn't got what you think he has are under my control or In my possession or the posses sion of Solicitor Clement. Your remedy lies In a contempt proceed ing, not in a resort to force." "How do you know that the pacers you ask for are not Important evi dence to the State of New York?" put In Mr. Doollng. "Do you want to prevent criminal proceedings against Gaston Means in New York? The trend jury ior .-vew lorK county Is In ses sion. You don't know what Indict ments it may have found against Means." "When we demanded certain evl dence from your client he refused to turn It over," said Mr. Clement. "We resorted to contempt proceedings, not force." Mr. Williams again told the per plexed sheriff to seize the documents. '"Are you the sheriffs adviser?" asked Mr. Doollng. "I am, and I resent your question, the tone of your voice, the way you asked It, was the retort. "I meant no discourtesy." said Mr. Doollng. "As for my voice. It's the'R. I.. Paxton. Wash. Bar.. only one I nave. I'm sorry If you don't like It." The sheriff did not take the papers, After Afton Means left the room onj. j. Woodburn, Wash. Bar.. Captain Jones' threat to throw him out he stirred up trouble over the carrying of revolvers by the New Yorkers. With his brother Brandon he worked the hotel crowd up to a determination to disarm the New Yorkers. The chief of police was called In. Captain Jones and Detec tive Jones and Cunnlff came down the stairs to enter the dining room. The chief of police asked If they were armed. They showed their po lice shields, and Captain Jones asked that the customary police courtesy be extended of permitting them to carry their weapons. But the chief demanded the pistols. Then came a curt refusal The New Yorkers said that If they had weapons they Intended to keep them and any one trying to take them away would meet opposition. "Yes, I'm heeled." snapped Cunnlff Anally, "and no man born of a wom an can take my gun away." The chief of police evidently had no heart In any business of disarm ing and as he and the crowd stood undecided the little group of New Yorkers walked Into the dining room and took a table In a corner. There was much talk and excitement after this, but no action. PLOTTERS ARE BLAMED FOR ANTHRAX EPIDEMIC SACRAMENTO. Cal- Sent. 28 Dr. Charles Keane.

PART OF SALARY TO IF One of the most generous examples of patriotism brought to light by The Washington Times Tobacco Fund was developed today when Major Orson Kllborn, of the statistical division of the adjutant general's office In the War Department, sent a check for, S per cent of his first month's salary from the Government to hr.lp ouy smokes for the soldiers in France. Major Kllborn thus sets an examplo that other newly commissioned offi cers In Uncle Sam's big armies might well follow. Not a tobacco user him self. Major Kllborn has divined the longing of the American fighting man for American smokes, and his patrl otic generosity prompted him to take steps accordingly. Urges Officers to Do Same. "Every month. wrote"MaJor Kll born to.Tre Times today, "there are hundreds of new appointments made, and I think the very least the new appontee can do' is to give S per cent of his first month's salary to the smokes fund." "A distinguished retired army phy sician said to me the other day that In civil war a pipe of tobacco to the fighting man was like bread and water to the famished. What a bless ing a good smoke must be to the boys soon to be In the trenches 'over there." Engineers Chip la. Members of the engineers' depot. No. I, at Washington Darracks, were contributors to the. fund today for the enjoyment of their comrades in arms who are nowhere near sources where American tobacco can be ob tained.

PRIVATE'S OUTFIT F CAMP DIX. WRIGHTSTOWN. N. J.. Sept. SS. There will be no toller- made uniforms for wealthy rookies at Camp DIx. This announcement was made following the call of a fashion able Philadelphia tailor upon King- don Could, millionaire recruit from Lakewood, now a private In the 311th Infantry. . The tailor, with an assistant, loca ted Gould at his barracks and an nounced to that surprised young sol dier that he had called to measure him1 for. his uniform. It happened that Uncle Sam, In the guise of a supply sergeant, had issued a complete pri vate's uniform to Gould a few min utes earlier. Gould told the tailor that one uniform was about all he could wear, but the tailor Insisted that he must measure the young mil lionaire for two expensive suits, and said that It relative of Gould's had placed the order. Private Gould re plied that the Government was look ing out for all his needs. He fairly had to shoo away the much-chagrined tailor and his assistant- There are reports again that Gould Is to have a commission In an engin eering regiment. At the headquarters of the 311th Regiment It was declared that the personnel board had not con sidered Gould's qualifications for pro motion. "Wealth or social position cuts no ice with the modern army," said an officer, "uncle Sam gives commissions only for services that can be rendered." $275,000 SUBSCRIBED FOR SOLDIERS' BOOKS The outlook for the success ot the national drive for a library fund of Jl.000,000 which was Instituted this week by the Library War Council looks bright, according to reports.

The governors of about half of the States have Issued proclamations In support of the movement A tele gram was received at national head quarters this morning from Governor Whitman, of New York, in which he says that the enterprise Is a most worthy one, essential to the welfare and morals of our soldiers and sailors, and assures the council that the State of New York may be depended upon to do Its share. While those In charge have been somewhat disappointed with the re sults of the campaign here so far. W. J.

Sept. 29. The New York gunmen, at bay and facing the electric chair, are- turning on "the men higher ud" wBo hired them. and charge them with (raving drugged them to nerve them tSr 'their bloody election work here. f 'Even Jacob Mascla. who actually killed Detective George A. Eppley, Is now talking: willingly. He, like all the other gunmen, is now deeply Incensed and embittered against the men who hired them to do murder and have abandoned them In their troubles. Their bitterness Is Increased great ly through the fact that the gun men have not yet been paid for their crimes. In the excitement and hurry to get them out of town after the murder ot Detective Eppley. the mat ter of payment was left unsettled. The gunmen were given only enough cash to see them back to New York. Since then none of "the men higher up," responsible to the gunmen for their pay, have dared to go near them for the purpose ot making a cash settlement for the murder of Eppley and the murderous assault on James A. Carey and Assistant Dis trict Attorney Maurer. This hss inspired the gunmen with much resentment against the men who bargained with them for mur der, and though he has not yet made, loose from bis masters and denounced them for drugging him Into murder.
