held by Assistant "District Attorney

and his associates. It came with a

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.

pushing their way forward, were sev

"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
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.

Springing toward Afton Means, he
"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

remedy lies In a contempt proceed

"How do you know that the pacers

put In Mr. Doollng. "Do you want to

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..

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.

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

steps accordingly.

Judge Advocate General Crow

If any regiment wishes to keep

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

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

said an officer, "uncle Sam gives
commissions only for services that
can be rendered."
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. It
was stated at the national head
quarters this morning, the Indica
tions are that the million dollar
mark will be oversubscribed by fifty
per cent
While the reports show contribu
tions totaling X2TS.000 for the first
day. it Is impossible yet to get an
estimate of the contributions for yes
terday, as a number of cities and
towns have not yet been heard from.
A great many smaller towns have al
ready oversubscribed their quotas.
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. Hamilton said this morning that
the contributions yesterday doubled
the amount raised Monday, and It Is
hoped that Washington will come
forward with Its share by the end of
the week
