SULZER AND GLYNN
CONTINUE TO ACT AS N. Y. Muddled Situation Devoid of Spectacular Develop ments Yesterday GLYNN CONFERS WITH DEMOCRATS Impeached Official Spends Unevent ful Day—Rumors of Wild Devel opments Prove Without Real Foundation Albany, N. Y., August 19.—Expecta tion that the reconvening of the leg islature today would be productive of spectacular developments in the mud dled governorship situation failed of realization. Rumors that acting Gov ermnor Glynn would submit a message bearing in some way upon his official status drew large crowds to the Capi tol, but few members appeared. In the 10-minute session of the as sembly concurrent resolutions were in troduced looking to the punishment for contempt in refusing to answer ques tions before the Frawley investigating committee of Louis A. Sarecky, Gover nor Sulzer’s private secretary, during the gubernatorial campaign, and Fred erick L. Colwell, who Is alleged to have been Mr. Sulzer’s “dummy” in certain stock transactions. * The Judiciary committee was called upon to take up action on charges affecting the integrity of the assembly suid to have made by James C. Gar rison. Transacts No Business The senate transacted no business, Both houses adjourning until tomorrow. Most of Acting Governor Glynn's time was taken up by private conferences with democratic leaders, who were said to be advising him in the formulation of a definite programme. Governor Sulzer's day was uneventful except for hi's appointment of a new commission to ascertain the mental condition of a patient confined in the Auburn state prison under sentence of death. .Special significance attaches to this action from the fact that however the commission may find, it might*open the door to court proceedings to test the validity of the governor's act. Governor Sulzer seemed unperturbed over the opinion of Attorney General Carmody upholding the contention that he is unlawfully exercising the func tions of chief executive, pending the outcome of the impeachment proceed nigs. He preserved his policy of silence adopted since the Impeachment proceedings were Instituted. Lawyers Selected Former Senator Kdgar T. Brackett and Kugeno Lamb Richards, counsel ‘ for the Frawle.v committee. W. r desig nated special counsel to assist the assembly managers of tlie Impeachment trial at a meeting held this afternoon It was said that additional counsel would tie named tomorrow. It ,\as said tliut additional counsel would be named tomorrow. The names of John l-i Stanch field and William Travers Je rome are mentioned most prominently in this connection. A statement issued ‘by the assembly managers says: "The hoard wishes It known that it Is exeremcly desirous that the pro ceedings shall be conducted in a full, fair and Impartial manner. "Tile proofs will be squarely pre sented to tlie high court of impeach ment, and tile only issue is tin. guilt or innocence of the Impeached gover nor. Technicalities will not be indulged In by the managers. The trim must lie trill anil tree. The people are en titled to know, and will know Un truth." Honors Requisition Trenton. N. J., August 19.—Acting Governor Felder today honored a requi sition issued by Governor Sulzer of New York, last Friday for the extra dition of William Thomas, alias "Bull" Fitzsimmons, who is now under arrest in Jersey City. Thomas Is under in dictment for murder In the first de gree. The requisition was recognized zy Governor Fielder upon the ground that he lias received no official noti fication that Governor Sulzer is dis qualified from acting as chief execu tive. Refused to Give lip Prisoner Troy. N. Y.. August 19.—Sheriff Snell of Rensselear county, tonight refused to surrender to New Jersey officials Dominick Delappe, alias “Kid Dyna mite." wanted in Jersey on a charge of shooting Thomas Conroy, president of the Plumber's union. Detectives from Jersey City presented extradition pa llors signed by Governor Sulzer. Sheriff Snell refused to recognize the appers. Pensacola. Fla.. August 19.—Charles H. Vlllar, a wharf builder and contractor, to day found an Iron chest burled in the shallow waters or Bayou Chico, above tile railroad trestle. When opened the chest was found to contain Spanish doubloons and silver pieces estimated to total be tween $7000 and $10,000. It Is believed the treasure may have been buried by the ptrntes who made the bayou their rendez vous, or by some of the early settlers during one of the numerous foreign in vasions. MEN’S GRADED UNION Two Adult Sections are Taught by Ladies The teaching of two sections, adult and .superintendent, by ladies was the feature of the regular weekly meeting of the Men’s graded union held yester day evening at the First Methodist church. The adult section was taught by Mrs. W. K. Starbuck, and the su perintendent’s section by Mrs. N. A. Barrett, general superintendent of cradle roll was held. The third sec tion, the boys, was taught by ,T. S. Price. The meeting convened at 6:45 o’clock with a devotional service under the leadership of the Rev. J. A. Leaver, pastor of the East Lake Cumberland Presbyterian church, after which the training class lesson was taught by R. C. Foster. The address of the evening was made by the* Rev. A. K. Wright, pastor of the Ensley Baptist church. He spoke on “Prayer In Personal Work.” No important questions arose for set tlement and only routine business was transacted. A large number of mem bers attended the meeting last night. \ Navy Ensign Weds Texas Girl MRS GARNET S. HUUNGS~ MANDENsyw Pm ora ENSIGN-CARNET S. HUUNGS" Not unlike time nnd the well known tides, the United States Navy waits for no man, eAen though the pleasant duties of getting married lie before lilm. This habit of the navy was responsible for the rather hasty marriage of Miss Selena Shumard Carden, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George A. Carden, of Dallas, Texas, to Ensign Garnet S. Hillings, son of Representative and Mrs. Willis J. Hulhigs, of Oil City, Pa., which took place in New York. CANADIAN AUTHORITIES WILL DEPORT THAW TO POINT WHERE HE CROSSED THE AMERICAN BORDER (Continued from Piicp One) wanted a picture. Again Thaw balked. He could not consent to it—could not even consider it—until he put on a clean shirt and collar. He explained that he had had no opportunity to change his clothes since leaving Matteawan. Thaw's two companions surpassed hfcn in reticence. All the newspapers could get was a description of each. One of them is five feet, eight or nine inct>53 tall, smooth faced ’•vith dark hair and eyes and heavy set. The other Is about the salne height, lighter in build and of fair complexion. Ii. K. Thawr, whos£ spectacular 'flight from the Mattewan asylum ended today with his arrest at Coaticook may be sent hock to New York on either of two grounds, namely: , Fim—Through deportation proceedings under the dominion law’ which provides. “No immigrant shall be permitted to lend in Canada who is feeble minded, an idiot or epileptic or wtjo is insane or who has hail an attack ot insanity within five years; nor shall any immigrant be so landed who is deaf and dumb or blind or ii firm unless he belongs to a family ac companying him or already in Canada which gives security satisfactory to the minister and in conformity with the reg ulations in tliat behalf for his permanent support if admitted to Canada." Second—Through extradition prooeed •ligfc, instituted by the state of New York and conducted by the proper federal au thorities on a warrant- for Thaw’s arrest charging him of bribery. He cannot be extradited on the warrant already issued in New York charging conspiracy, in the opirion of the authorities, because exist ent treaties deal only with the brand of conspiracy relating to revolt against tbe master of a ship on the high seas. A new warrant charging bribery, the au thorities believe, would have to be sworn out. May Not Deport Him iiHie is, or course, a possibility that Canada will not deport Mm and will de cline to honor an extradition requisition issued by the United States. To these possibilities the wealthy slayer of Stan ford White addressed his attention and that of his counsel tonight, preparatory to hi hearing in his case set for two. After his first flush of excitement. Thaw has been quiet. This has been due almost wholly to his counsel, W. U. Shurtleff, hurriedly retained, after Thaw' had been arrested by the village constable. Shunt leffs admonition not to talk checked the prisoner's speech as effectually as a gag. Before .Shurtleff was retained, however. Thaw see-sawed with declarations that he was Thaw and he w’as not Thaw. He frankly admitted l;is identity when first iet0<Lte^ ye* offe,’e(l to bet the constable $10 that he wasn’t Thaw' when Arrested. He told the deputy sheriff who caused his arrest that he was Thaw, but stub bornly resisted the suggesteion as to his identity while in the jail at Coaticook, only to break down in the end. acknowl edge his name and send 'dispatches which rivetted the already certain identification. These telegrams were addressd to Mrs. Mary Thaw, his mothr: to Roger O’Mara, the T haw family detective, and others who have played leading roles in his at tempts to obtain liberty by legal means. The keen wit and eye of a rural deputy sheriff enmeshed Thaw once more in the pi ocesses of the luwr, and while the crack detectives of eastern cities were seeking him the village; cc nstable 'here took him into custody. Heard Conversations Burleigh H. Kelsea, deputy sheriff of Koos county,. N. H„ boarded a Maine Centra! train at Lancaster last night and sat down in the smoker to read his paper. He was well on Ills way to Colebrook, his home, when he heard the conversation of men in tile seat behind him. They were asking one another the name of the coun ty seat of the county through which they were passing. None of them knew. A well built man of erect figure, whose dark hair was slightly sprinkled with gray and Into whose eyes there was stamped an unusual stare, arose and came to Kel sea's seat. The stranger wanted to know the name of the county seat. Something In his manner, or it may have been the strange light in his eyes—Kelsea doesn't recall which—caused the deputy to .study the face before 1dm. He hud seen It be fore somewhere, he thought. As he groped back Into his recollection for the answer his eyes fell to the open newspaper In his lap. Kelsea started. On the page before him was the picture of the man who^was speaking. It was labelled In flaring’type, with the name "Harry K. Thaw." There was no mistaking it. The man and the picture were one. Kelsey fooked at his questioner silently. "You don t know who I am. do you?” asked the stranger quickly. “I think I could give a good guess,” Kelsey replied. “Who am I?” "You’re Thaw—Harry Iv. Thaw." The stranger’s eyelids flickered a sec ond. “1 am Thaw," he said in the same quiet, even tone. "But you don’t want me. you couldn't do anything with me. I was acquitted of that murder and they can't extradite me." Taking his cue from Thaw, the deputy replied with equal quietude. “No. I guess not. Where are you go ing?” “1 am going to Canada,” Thaw said. "Then I’m going to cross the water.” Thaw Resumes Seat The conversation ended with Thaw’s resuming his seat. Kelsey got off, as he had planned, at Colebrook. One of three men with Thaw got off, too, Kelsey thinks to shadow him. Kelsey went home and a few minutes later was off in a high powered automobile in a whirlwind chase for the train. Thaw and his companions alighted at Hereford with the deputy burning the read a few miles behind them. At Here ford. Thaw hired a liveryman's team and drove over the international line into the Canadian woods. After a five mile trip that seemed purposeless the Oliver became suspicious of Ids fares and refused to go any' farther. It was dark, but Thaw and his companions did not balk at this. They paid the liveryman, dismissed him and by starlight they be gan to make their way through the forest to the open. They found a farmer’s house and Thaw offered the farmer $9 to drive the trio to the village of Hermenegiide-Garford. It was a short drive and Thaw and his two friends were in their rooms at the village hotel at 10:30 o’clock. Learned of Arrival Kelsey’s road lay through the village, too. He quickly learned of the arrival of the three strangers and telephoned the police at Coaticook. The police, con sisting of the village constable, decided to let Thaw sleep. At 6 o’clock this morning, however, he went to Hermene gilde-Garford and placed the three men ui der arrest. After Thaw’s arrest Kelsey telegraphed the asylum authorities at Matteawan claiming the reward. ‘T’m not Thaw,” were the fugitive’s first words to the constable. “I’ll bet you $10 I’m not.” Notwithstanding. Thaw and his friends were bundled into an automobile and w hisked away to Coaticook. There Thaw was put in the village lockup, the con stable standing guard at the door. Thaw sent out word he wanted a lawyer and W. L. Shurtleff w*as summoned. His first words were an admonition to his client not to talk to reporters. Before Thaw had been long In the lock up he admitted his identity. His com panions, however, declined to say any thing about themselves. , IS ARRAIGNED ON AN INDICTMENT After Thaw and his counsel had spent an hour or more in consultation Thaw was taken for a hearing to the office of Justice (if ttie Peace Dupuis and formally arraigned on the following indictment: “That Harry Thaw was legally convict ed and confined for life and unlawfully escaped from the penitentiary.” Justice Dupuis conducted the affair briefly. Thaw heard the Indictment read. That was all. He was not permitted to enter a plea. Before Ills astonished law yer could enter an objection the court had ordered him committed without bail to the Sherbrooke jail for hearing tomor rcw. Crestfallen, Thaw went back to the Coaticook lockup to await the coming of the 2:30 train for Sherbrooke. The as surances of his lawyer failed of comfort and he refused food. Later, when he was taken to the railway station his ap petite came to him and he ate a hard belled egg and two sandwiches before the interested gaze of a goodly proportion of Coaticook’s population. The crowds that hung at Thaw's heels at Coaticook were puny in comparison with the throngs that greeted him on his : arrival here. Most of Sherbrooke's 18,-1 000 inhabitants swarmed to the station and greeted him with a mighty cheer. Good Natured Welcome They almost overwhelmed him with their good-natured welcome. In the ensuing rush lie and his guards had to tight their way to the automobile watting to take him to Jail. “Let him go,” the crowd shouted again and again. Thaw smiled and bowed in return. At the jail Thaw was given the best cell In the place, permitted to smoke, and allowed to send out for his supper. To reporters who accompanied him from Coaticook to Hherbrooke, Thaw showed what he claimed to be transportation BADLY MUTILATED BODY OF RAILROAD Killing of A. M. Armstrong Near Ross’ Landing is Shrouded in Mystery Selma, August 19.—(Special.)—Infor mation regarding the killing of a white man, A. M. Armstrong, which oc curred in Wilcox county during the past week down the Alabama river was obtained here Tuesday. The killing oc curred near Ross’ landing and is shrouded in mystery. Mr. Armstrong was a passenger on the Alabama river boat from Mobile, which reached Selma last Saturday. He left the boat at Ross’ lariTling for the purpose of going into the interior country to secure right of ways for the proposed Gulf, Florida and Ala bama Railroad company. Just at the landing where Mr. Arm strong left the boat the river curves and there is a deep cut-in and the boat after passing some 15 or 20 miles up the river, almost rubs against the same spot of Ross' landing, only a couple of miles through the country. It was at this nearest point that some one got on the boat and told of the death of Mr. Armstrong, who had left it just a short while before. A strange coincidence in reference to the murder of Mr. Armstrong is that about two years ago, another railroad man left a river boat at the same landing and was murdered In almost the Identical spot where the mutilated body of Mr. Armstrong was found. The sheriff of Wilcox county is working on the case and hopes to ferret out the mysterious killing of the railroad man. through the Dominion to Detroit. He did not permit close examination of the pa pers he displayed and his claim could not be verified. Thaw seemed to be en tirely familiar with the laws of the coun try and cited the Jack Johnson case in support of his contention that he could not legally be held or deported. Compares Two Cases Sharon, Pa., August 19.—Attorney W. H. Davis, who represented Miss OttIUte Schneider, who -escaped from Matteawan in November, 1911, and was afterwards captured here, in discussing the question raised by New York lawyers as to wheth er Harry K. Thaw is immune from ar rest and cited the Schneider case, says that Miss Schneider was a fugitive from justice on charges of assault in the first degree, she having shot Dr. Frederick Bierhoff in New York city. She had never been tried for the crime, but was ad judged insane before being- tried, so that extradition papers were served on her as a fugitive from justice. It is on this account that Attorney Davis declares that Schneider case is quite different from that of Thaw. - Leave for Sherbrooke Poughkeepsie, N. Y., August 19—Dis trict Atto?ney Edward Conger, Sheriff Hornbeck and former District Attorney Mack left toiright for Sherbrooke, Quebec, with the avowed intention of taking Har ry Thaw Into custody and returning him either to the Dutchess county jail or Mat teawan asylum. The officials have a warrant charging conspiracy- issued by Justice Morsehau ser. and if It is found Thaw cannot be extradited on a conspiracy charge, a new warrant charging bribery will be applied for and an attempt made to extradite the fugitive on that charge. The district attorney hopes, however, that Canada will deport Thaw and in so doing land him over the International line in New York instead of in New Hamp shire or Vermont. Should this be done, Mr. Conger and his associates will be waiting on the line to take Thaw into custody and bring him back. They don't want him returned in another state than New York because lie would then have an opportunity to attempt to prove ho is sane and tedious litigation and delay would follow. Description of Men Sheriff Hornbook and District Attorney Congres went to Matteawan this after noon to get a complete description of the five men—Richard Butler, Roger Thompson, Eugene Duffy, Michael O'Keefe and Thomas Flood—who. It Is al leged, aided Thaw to escape. The offi cials inquired also as to the 'ownership of an automobile which they believe was used as a. pathfinder for the Thaw car last Saturday. Chief of Police McCabe ascertained that this car made the tour from Matteawan to Connecticut and return last Saturday to pick out the best roads for Thaw. District Attorney Conger learned the number of the car and communicated with Secretary of State May as to Its owner skip. It was found that the number was that of three auto trucks. The oftlcluls believe the number was taken from one of the trucks and used on the pathfinder. Howard Barnum. the Matteawan guard who opened the gute when Thaw made his escape, had nothing to say when notified that Thaw had been captured. Barnum will be given a hearing Thursday on charges of bribery, conspiracy and neg lect of duty. May Be Extradited Washington, August 19.—Harry Thaw may be extradited from Canada on a wurrant charging bribery, but there Is no provision in any of the Anglo-American treaties for extradition on a charge of conspiracy except as it relates to con spiracy to mutiny on the high seas. There is no provision for extradition on the charge of fugitive from justice. The foregoing are the views of state department officials. In none of the treaties Is their cloture clause which wotdd permit the arrest of a fugitive who got across the border just ahead of his eaptprs. Such a provision did exist in an old treaty with Mexico once. Immigration authorities here believe Thaw could be detained and returned to the United States by the Canadian immigration au thorities as an insane man or an unde sirable alien. They have no definite information of the provisions of the Canadian law. May be Asked Under Treaty Extradition for bribery could be asked under a provision of the treaty of 1905, which, however contains the qualifica tion that the bribery must be "defined to be the offering, giving or receiving of bribes made criminal by the laws of both countries." That, officials point out, makes it essential to Thaw's extradition that any criminal act with which he would be charged must also be a crim inal act with which he would be charged must also be a criminal one under the Canadian code. The succession of treaties between the United States and Great Britain under which extradition from Canada would op erate, makes provision for many crimes, but curiously enough does not provide for conspiracy in the general acceptance of the term, because Great Britain de clined to Include even at the urgent rep resentations of the United States. An other provision makes it necessary, in the opinion of officials, to present to the extradition court evidence of the crime on which extradition might be asked. Any request for extradition would neces sarily come through the governor of New York und that would confront the fed eral government with the need of recog V 0 Saks’ Corsetiere A Graduate of the Nemo Hygienic-Fashion Institute Madame Dyke Has Returned from New York Having finished a post graduate course—and every woman who wishes to be properly corseted should take advantage of her expert advice.

No request for j extradition has been made today. Guardian Notified Pittsburg, August 19.—It is probably that Roger O'Mara, guardian of Harry K. Thaw and former superintendent of Pitts burg police, will leave here shortly for Canada to look after certain interests of his ward. O’Mara received a telegram today from Thaw as fellows: “Am under arrest. Advise." Mr. O’Mara sent a lengthy telegram to Thaw in reply. In this telegram O’Mara told Thaw to hire the best legal talent; not to worry and to feel assured that everything possible was being done. O’Mara denied that Thaw had wired to Pittsburg today for a large sum of money and stated that Thaw did not need money at this time. He said, however, that Thaw may have directed such a request to his mother at Cresson, Pa. Mr. O’Mara tonight went to bed early with the announcement that he wanted rest as he "expected a hard day’s work tomorrow." Earlier in the day Mrs. Mary C. Thaw, mother of Harry K. Thaw, talked with Mr. O’Mara over the long distance tele phone. Mrs. Thaw was preparing then to go to the Thaw summer home at Cres son. At that time Mrs. Thaw told O’Mara she was ignorant of the whereabouts of her son, but she wished for Mr. O’Mara to join him, and escort him to Cresson. O’Mara Skeptical When word was flashed from Coaticook, Quebec, that Thaw had been captured, Mr. O'Mara, for a time was skeptical. Later Thaw's message to him dispelled all doubt. It was learned that O'Mara has received opinions from prominent attor neys that Thaw cannot be held In Can ada. It was stated Thaw might be de ported as an undesirable providing he did not hold a tieket to a point outside the borders of Canada. In any event, it was said. Thaw would have to be sent to the point in the United States from which he entered Canada. Mr. O’Mara stated that former Gov. William A, Stone of Pensylvania, personal counsel for Thaw, who is said to be at an Isolated fishing camp in Tioga coun ty. had not been summoned to take up the matter. Leave for Canada Pittsburg, August 19.—According to in formation received here this morning from Cressou. Pa., Mrs. Mary C. Thaw, mother of Harry K. Thaw, lias a telegram from her daughter, Mrs. George Uauder Car negie, from New York as follows: "We (herself and husband) are leaving for Canada. Hope O'Mara (Thaw's guard ian) has left." . Law Very Plain ' New York, August 19.—Before sailing tonight for England, Sir Richard Mc Bride, prime minister of British Colum bia, made the following statement rela tive to the status of Harry Thaw and the Canadian government; "The law Is very plain. An Insane man coming from foreign territory cannot re main on British soil. Therefore, the Ca nadian authorities will have to turn Thaw over to the l'nited States authorities at the border. They may turn him over to the authorities of any state touching the border and this might as well t* New Y'ork as any other state. "Although I understand that Thaw did not land on Canadian soil from New York state, he will, of course, bo deported from Canada at any point the authorities se lect." New York. August ID.—The big black car In which Harry Is. Thaw lied from Matteawan was abandoned at the farm house of John I. Rankin, near Roches ter, N. H., Monday noon, according ‘to advices received here tonight by the men who drove the car. They asked permis sion to place the car in the Rankin sta ble. saying another man would call for it. They paid $2.25 and promised that more would be forthcoming when the ma chine was called for. I-eaving the Rankin home the men took an electric car half a mile away It Is believed one of the men was Thaw. The car is a six-cylinder, seven-passenger ve hicle, license New York 34294.

'I’ve got to go awuy from here,' I told her. ‘Things are getting too hot for me.' She did not want me to go. I told her I had to, that I had a future, a family and a business to pro tect and that I was going to Dos An gelos for a while and give the public and decent order a chance to die down. "A few days later she called me up on the telephone and asked me why I was still In town. I told her that I had some buildings In course of erection and that there were details likewise I had to look to. Police Complained “Nearly a week before we went to Reno Diepenbroeck, my landlord, told me that the Janitor of the building and the po liceman on the beat bad complained to him about my taking girls to my office. “The same week, 1 took an automobile ride with Miss Warrington on the upper Stockton road. We saw another machine behind us and listened. 1 told her it was my father with an officer of the juvenile court. We rode 50 miles an hour for some minutes. We then left them. "My/ father was in town then and I knew he was looking for me. The girl said: ‘Believe me, you are not goitjg away and leave me here.* " ‘Do just as you please,' I sakl. Tm going and I'm going alone. I've got too good a family here. I've got to think of them. I have lots before me In tills town and I want this to blow over.' “Marsha said to me she's got to go. too, and Miss Norris with her. Miss Norris never would have gone to Reno if Miss Warrington hadn't insisted on It from the first. Father Angry "I got the machine,” continued Diggs, "and rode around In it all day, calling at O’Brien’s saloon from time to time ‘That father of yours is a terror," O’Brien told me. ’He’s running around here like a maniac. "It’s a place like this that ruin young men," says he. '"I’ll have you closed if It takoH the last cent I’ve got." ' "I went to hiding What O'Priori told me, on top of what Diepenbrook had said, scared me. I told O’Brien I’d heard my father was looking for me with a police man, and he said that was true. "Later, I learned from my uncle that my father was gone, and 1 came out of hiding. Miss Warrington and Miss Norris had visited at my hotel. "On March 3 I met Camlnetti and Mar shall Diggs, my uncle, with Miss Nor ris and we talked things over. Miss Nor ris suggested that I leave town. 1 ex plained the difficulty of doing that. Bus iness men had placed several hundred thousand dollars In contracts In my hands. "My uncle said I should go home *.o my wife and quit running around and leave other women alone. Miss Norris In sisted that I’d best leave town. My uncle told me my wife knew about my af fairs. "The next day Camlnetti came to my hotel and said: " 'That father of your's is a terror. He called me on the phone to ask where you were and when I told him I did not know, he called me a liar and told me he’d have me fired out of my job. that 1 wasn’t lit to he working for the state board of control.’ "Cam told me his wife had been after him. that she hail told him she was going to Judge Hughes for a Warrant, that things had gone far enough. Wouldn’t Speak to Him "On the Wednesday night before we left for Reno my uncle called on me to go home. As I was entering the house I met Cominetti leaving. He wouldn’t speak to me. “I had dinner and went down when again Cam told me what my wife had been doing to him. 'You’ve been a snake to me for four years/ he said she told him. 'Now I’m going to show you what a real serpent Is, I’m going to cause you untold trouble.' “Cam said she had called from he house by the telephone. He said he was so scared when he went In that he hid behljid a door when he saw her coming until he was sure she didn’t have a gun. “That same night I saw O'Brien, too. He told me that he’d heard through Mar sha Warrington’s uncle that her father had suid he’d heard she was going with a married man, that he was suspicious of men. and that he'd swore that 1f he ever found us together he’d kill us both.” The direct examination concluded with out any questions about the purchase < f tickets to Reno, the trip on the train or the three days in the Reno bungalow.
