JUROR SITTING E MAY MEAN MISTRIAL OF SECOND HEARING Henry Waldron Had Chafed Under Restraint; Failure to Find Him Leads to Belief He Has Suicided, (Ilv Morning Jimrnnl Kiwiis' l".sMd Wr.t kan;:ns City, Dec. II. A mistrial or the second hearing of Dr. ' 11. Clarke Hyde, charged with killing Colonel Thomas H. Swope, appears probable tonlvtht. Made desperate by the sight of two of his children, from whom he had been separated for six weeks, in the court room, last Saturday, Harry Waldron, one of the Jurors, escapud from the jurors' hotel quarters early today. While Frank Jasper, a deputy county marshal, who was on guard slept, Waldron pried open a naileu transom, crawled through the open ing, tiptoed to a tire escape and leap ed lilteen feet to freedom. The entire city police force and n dozen deputies from the county mar shal's office have searched futiiely for him since his absence was noted near daylight. if Waldron is not located by to morrow night the eleven remaining Jurors will lie discharged, Judge Pnrterflold said today. Dr. If the missing man is found and be cannot prove that he has not discussed the case dining his absence the same action will be taken. Should he re turn In good health and swear that he has mentioned the trial to no one, and the court Is satisfied with his story, the trial will proceed. Fear that Waldron has killed him self grows hourly. He was in a highly agitated state when last seen Sunday night as, Indeed he had been almost every day since he was chos en a Juror. He objected to serving when he was first selected, saying his dairy interests would not permit his ab sence, letter, he was taken 111 nnd ii...(jed Dheoiislv for his wife and children. His wife wrote him dally and he seemed better contented. Then, Saturday, his children came to see him. He spied them In the court room from his Beat In the jury box. He smiled and nodded. When court adjourned he grasped them in his arms and Kisseu ami lonou-o io,,,. Yesterday was Sunday and a dull day for the jurors who sat around their hotel. Some oi them played games and others read, but Waldron sat alone, playing on his old and batter ed violin "Home Sweet Home , nis favorite tunc. He played It over and over again. Kven If Waldron's escape should result, in a mistrial, which would mean u loss of thousands of dollars to the county, no severe piiiilr.hincn! could be indicted upon him. U" Is in contempt of court, hut the maxi mum penalty for this offense Is a fine of or a ten days jail sent ence. Attorneys and hundreds of specta tors remained about the court room nil day anxiously awaiting the return of Waldron, Scores of theories re garding the disappearance were of fered but the suggestion of suicide was most generally accepted, offi cers think that worry about his fam ily may have deranged him. Prosecutor Conkllng Issued a state ment Intimating Waldron had been Induced to escape. Attorneys for Dr. Hyde gave out a written statement deploring the Incident and setting forth that they had always urged ft speedv trial of their client.

I IBy Morning Joarnnt Hneclitl lttr Wlr I Los Angeles, Dec. I. -Hurt II. Franklin, an Investigator employed bv the defense In the murder trial of h- Mc.vamara. just ended. w today by Justice William V. loiinn to answer to charges of bribing a juror and at tempting t influence the verdict of a jury. The $IO,fi0 cash bond fur nished at the time of his arrest by counsel for McNamara, was again made surety for Franklin's liberty. An Information by the state s at torney, which In California may sub stitute grand Jury proceedings,' prob ably will be filed within a week. Assistant District Attorney Ford said tonight. The prosecution does not seek an early trial. The name of Clarence S. Darrow. chief of counsel for the McNamarat, was brought Into the case twice to day by witnesses at the preliminary hearing. George X. Lockwood. a venireman who was arrested when Franklin was. Hnd later released, said Franklin told him h would see Dar row "and arrange how the money was to be paid." Robert K. Rain, n Juror who ac cepted a bribe, told how he came to do It and addod franklin told him Darrow had given him the money '"to use." Franklin, In court, denied that he ever said anything of the sort. "I never mentioned narrow's name to these men," he declared. "I owe It to Mr. Darrow to say that much, lis nti absolute lie." Previously Franklin snld: "I might be guilty though I don't for one moment admit that but I'm no foid." He refused to elaborate on this dec laration. Attorney Darrow fhtt'y denied nny complicity n the affair.' "I do not inmv uint n.ords luffed between Fran kiln and Lockwood," h said. "I have had nothing to do with ' getting to' any Jurors. "Lockwood, I am told, said later In the (lav that lie had spoken to Frank lin about 'the big fellow' saying he supposed I whs meant nnd Franklin replied 'I didn't mean Darrow, I meant 'Cap' While.' It looks as If Lockwood might have had my name In in I ml when Franklin was not talk ing about me,'.' District Attorney Fredericks saH that the state does not possess evi dence which would warrant Including Darrow In the tangle. "What was testified to was purely hearsay," he said. "It Is not evidence In a court of law. This office, be fore proceeding ngalnst men, secure what It believes to ve valid evidence." "Have you much evidence against Mr. Harrow?" was asked. "We have not," he said, nnd then corrected this Ly saying that they had not sufficient evidence against Dar row. The federal grand Jury which lias not been In session since last Friday, will go to work again tomorrow. Those who are directing tho probe would not say what angle It would take. Among the possible witnesses Is Howard Taylor, chauffeur for (ien eral Harrison Gray Otis at the time the Los Angeles Times whs dynamlt d. General ills was out of town but Taylor was here and found the un exploded suit case bomb at the Otis home. He also found foofprlnts in the turf. Special Investigator Oscar F. Law ler was asked today about a box re ceived at the I'nlted States Marshal's office from Salt Lake City and said to contain about '2T pounds of evi dence gathered In connection with the McNamara case. "Who told you that? Who told you that?" he demanded. "I want to know who Is giving out this Informa tion." lie refused to say anything nmr'? about It. Asked as to the termination of the grand Jury Investigation he said :t night be "two days or several years" before the end conies. It was said to be fairly assured that the local Investigation would not last long. MILLIONS BORROWED BY GERMAN BANKS New York, Dec. ll.A feature of tho money market today was heavy borrowing of liornmn banking Inter ests at 5 1-2 to (I per cent for "year end" loans.

New of Indiana to Be Made Chairman of Body That Will Arrange For 1912 Re publican Convention, BOOSEVELT'S POSSIBLE CANDIDACY EXPLOITED Those Advocating His Nomina tion Base Claims Upon Fact That He Has Not Announced Refusal to Accept. By Morning Juurnnl Siwlal 1 Wire Washington. Dec. II. Hostilities of an unexpected character and from an unlocked for quartv, developed today among members of the repub lican national committee and other prominent party leaders, who are here In connection with the meeting tomorrow to tlx the time and place for the presidential nominating con vention next summer. opposition to Colonel Harry S. New of Indiana, the administration candidate ior chairman of the power ful sub-committee on convention arrangements, was responsible for the Ill-feeling engendered. The situation, however, cleared considerably late-In the evening. At the president's dinner to the commit teemen, there was no open discussion of polities. Hut H became known Im mediately after the diners had ad journed that Secretary Utiles and other supporters of President Taft had won a complete victory and that Colonel New undoubtedly would head the sub-committee on arrangements. It also was evident that the Tttft forces would control the entire mem bership of the sub-eommlttce and that the slate for the sub-conimlttee of live Included, In addition to Col onel New, National Committeemen Mtilvane of Kansas, Vorys of Ohio. Murphy of New Jersey, and Williams of Oregon. All (if these men are known to be friendly to president Taft. ComtnllteemHii N. C. Duncan of North Carolina, may be added as a sixth member of the sub-committee. inly less Interesting than the con troversy over the control of the sub committee In charge of the conven tion, was the open exploitation throughout the day of Colonel House veil as a possible candidate for the president lal nomination. The advocates of Itoosevelt's nomi nation based their arguments In his behalf upon the fact that nt no time has the former president announced that he would not accept the nomi nation If It were tendered him, It was recognized that he would not openly become a candidate, they satd, but they were busy sounding members of the national committee ns to their sentiment In regard to "forcing the nomination u;ion the Colonel." There were many who connected the open advocacy of Itoosevelt's nomination with the op position to tunning a committee on arrangements dominated by adminis tration men. The Koosovell enthusiasts frankly snld their hope lay In working up a demand for Colonel Itoosevelt, to be expressed In the convention Itself. The most sensational feature of the 'day's skirmishing was the fact that Secretary Hilles, who Is the active leader of the Taft forces In the cam paign for re-noiiilmitlon, and Post master General Hitchcock, who man aged the president's campaign three .venrs trgo, seemingly were arrayed analyst each other. Finally, Mr. Hitchcock Issued a statement 111 de nlal, but It did not 'entirely set the report at rest. Mr. Hitchcock's statement follows: "Statements Indicating that there Is friction between Mr. Hilles mid my self are absolutely unfounded. My resignation ns chairman ol the na tional committee was tendered In good faith on the day that I whs con firmed as postmaster general am) from that time to this I have refrain ed from participation ' In the affairs of the commltlee. I have all that I can do nt present to look slier the business of my department and do not wish to be drawn Into liny con troversy respecting national politics." Friends of President Taft entered upon the work of the day thoroughly confident Hint there would be no op position to Mr. New. It was not un til afternoon that they learned the program arranged on Sunday whs giv ing dissatisfaction. Strangely enough the opposition came from members of the southern states, the section which the administration was sup posed to be In undisputed control. Southern members of the commit tee met, ostensibly to take measures of self-protection against any it'.enipt In the next convention to reduce Ihir representation. Several members m.ido impassioned speeches opposing preferment to any man who hud been a member of n state delegation that had voted solidly In the convention of Kins to reduce the representation of southern states. It was recognised that Colonel New whs meant by this charm teiisation, although after the meeting several members reported that News name hud not been mentioned nt the con Urellce. No vote was taken In the southern conference, but soon alter adjourn ment it was whispered about that Colonel New would be opposed by a lai je number of committeemen .vho bad hitherto been counted for any man favored at the White House. Several members openly advocated the retention of Vice-Chiiirinnn John S. Mill of Maine, who will be elected tomorrow as successor of former Chairman Hitchcock, the honor of directing the convention nrrnnge ments. It was reported that Mr. Hitchcock whs h party to this plan, on every side Mr. Hitchcock's name was coup led with the nntl-New movement and II wus probably been use of that fuel GDMMTTE that the po.-tmastcr general issued his statement Considerable lll-ftellng was msnl- fet late in the alternoon and the executive committee of the nitien.il committee met to consider the situ ation. After much parleying, the executive committee adopted a reso lution, naming Mr. Hill, Charles F. Hrooker of Connecticut, and former Representative Frank . Low den of Illinois, as a special committee, to go to the White House to ascertain the wishes of President Tift. lirooker and Low den were known to favor New and omc of the lutter's opponents went so far m to s.iv that the committee had been "st nVed " against Hill. They said that K Hrook er and Lovvden urged the president openly to espouse the cause of New. no alternative would be left Mr. Hill but to acquiesce. However, president Taft is snld to have told the s"eelal committee that the question was one tile 11, mount committee must met. The question of presidential prefer ence primaries so far as the national committee was concerned was dispos ed of at the meetinir of the executive committee late today. It was decided a resolution should be adopted giving to the six states that already have adopted primary laws, the tight to select by that meth od their delegate' to the luilloual con velitlon. National Committeemen Dm Id Mil I mi lie of Kansas, suggested that the resolution restrict the privilege of primaries to these six stales. This action was opposed us Impolitic and was not agreed to. It was decided to cover all the other states by a resolution providing that delegates should be elected in accordance with the rules laid down by the various Htntu ei.ttt i, It l.'a Ttii m.,1 ti I !.,ti utit, f Mil III In lie , I (!:!. f.il-e tn tlut wnrl'lliu' elements from ohlo.

There seemed no question tonight that Chicago would Bet the national convention and that It would be held the last week In June. St. Louis ap parently was the only citv seriously considered as a rival to Chicago. Denver It was claimed will throw Its support to Chicago In preference to St. Louis. President Taft today declined to commit himself either to Chicago or St. Inils. Representatives of the various titles will lie given it it hour and a half to present their claims. Three members of the national committee did not attend President Tails dinner tonight. The most prominent was William J. Ward of New York, who In his official declar ation said he would be In the city only a short time. Friends of Mr. Ward, however, declared that he declined because he did not wish to attach himself to Mr. Tuft's candidacy In anv way.
