today, according to special dispatches
r> > ? tv??d here by the Excelsior. Judi
cial authorities at Puebla, refused to
allow Um consular agent to re-enter
the prison.
Mr. Jenkins' move, according to dis
patches, was prompted by a dealre to
secure unconditional liberty. Mr. Jen
kins b??ing quoted as declaring that
$500 ball was furnished by his friend,
J. Walter Hansen, without his knowl
edge, and that he refused to accept
conditional freedom.
Hllaro Medina, underaectary of
foreign relation?, is.-quoted by the
Kxcelsior as stating that the release
of Mr. Jenkins had removed all cause
for friction between the United
States and Mexico.
The freeing of Mr. Jentfins came as
a surprise to him, the dispatch adds.
U? was awakened from his night's
sleep by Chief of Police Zavalcta. and
at once dressed himself, gathered to
gether his few belongings, and was
conveyed to his home. His release.
It was said, was not unexpected in
Advices to El Dem?crata state that
Consul Jenkins was set free after the
authorities had 1 pen handed a check
for |500 (American) signed by J.
Salter Hansen, drawn on the Guar
anty Trust Company of New York.
It is declared that Mr Hansen con
ducted all the negotiation? for the
NEW TORK, Dec. ?.?The Guaranty
Trust Company said today that J.
Salter Hansen has an' account at its
Fifth avenue branch, which has been
inactive for some time No further
information concerning Mr. Hansen
was available.
Went Te Me-xi??? Ia June.
At the apartment house here in
which Haneen lived for two years.
It was said that he had gone to Mex
ico laat June, returned in September
and on October I had given up his
suite, asking, however, that his mail
be held. No further word had been
received from him.
The J. Salter Hansen referred to
in the foregoing probably is the
theatrical man of the name formerly
of Chicago. This Mr. Hansen was in
volved In a dispute with the British
authorities 1n 1913 over incidents in
connection with the production of the
play of "Croesus." involving an al
leged threat against Arthur Bour
chler. the English actor-manager.
The dispatches from London at that
period etated that he had been bound
over In $10.000 sureties in that city to
keep the peace for a year, and that
he shortly afterward left England
for France.
LOS ANGELES. Cal.. Dec. ?.?I'nited
States Consular Agent William it
Jenkins waa not without that saving
sense of humor to sustain h:m during
hi? confin-rr.'-nt in a Mexican peni
tentiary on a charge of conspiracy
with his kidnapers. This la shown
rry a letter he wrote from the prison.
? in which he referred to his experi
ences as a "bit of hard luck" not
without its comical side.
In a*^1etter date?l November ?5
from the state penitentiary at Puebla.
Mexico, to William B. Bates, of Los
Angeles, who tVas a schoolmate of
?the officiai in Tennessee, J?nklns said:
"I have had a bit of ha'rd luck r?
' cently and got stuck to the tune cf
| nearly 40O.000 pesos in M???.? ..: gold.
And not only that, but now the local
| authorities. In an endeavor to c??ver
up their own criminal responsibility
for the neglect of the city, have tried
to accuse rae of complicity with the
rebel? who kidnaped me. and have
me In JaU.
"It ts certainly the limit when a
man la taken from his home, half
killed with exposure, his family ail
?ick with fright, his money taken
away from him, and then for good
measure thrown Into Jail for doing
it himself. If it were not a hit seri
ous for me It would be comic? ?. and it
? has its comic?.1 side anyway.
"I have refused to accept my lib
[ erty on bait aa I did not want to
: compromise with the dogs, and for
1 that reason am In jail, but feel that I
; will get quicker action that way than
by entering any sort of transaction
with them."
