Cnntlcbok, 41 no.. September 5.-—Hurry
K. Thaw will be produced b«*fore the
fnll king's bench, appeal side, «! Mon
treal, on the morning of September 15.
Two of his counsel, .1. \. <»rcensblcld*
nail \. K. I.a Flnmme, today obtained
a double writ—-habeas corpus and pro
hibition—at Montreal, and whirled In a
spcclnl train to t'oatlcook, where not
long before the immigration author
ities had ordered Thaw's deportation
from the dominion.
There were cheers when the writ ar
rived and more cheers whenever Thaw
appeared at the window of the deten
tion room. Thre was more cheering
when the news got abroad that for
Thaw the new move meant JO days'
delay. Not only by the writ secured in
Montreal, but by the action of his at
torneys on appeal did Thaw today
block his deportation. In addition he
had the pleasurable knowledge that his
old enemy, William Travers Jerome,
had been arrested, charged with gamb
ling.
MANY SENSATIONS
DURING DAY
If ever .a little town produced “sensa
tions," Coatioook did today. First came
Jerome's urrest and release dn bail on
a charge that he had played poker yes
terday on railroad property with some
i-ew spa per men. Then came word that
Thaw's lawyers had obtained in Mon
treal the writ demanding his production
in court there.
Meantime tlie special board of. inquiry
ordered Thaw’s deportation to Vermont
under two clauses of the immigration act,
namely- that he had entered Canada by
stealth and had, within live years been
an inmate of an institution for the in
fane. From both these decisions Thaw's
lawyers appealed.
ARREST NOT PROMPTED
BY THAW’S LAWYERS
Jtrome's arrest was not prompted in
any way by the Thaw lawyers. One and
all they expressed indignation at the
move and said they were ready to aid
him. The arrest really signified that the
state of public opinion here is decidedly
pro-Thaw and more decidedly anti
Jerome. Another factor is u split in tiie
town council over Chief of Police John
Boulreau, Thaw's original captor and
subsequent petitioner for the writ of
habeas corpus, which forced Thaw out oi
jail at Sherbrooke into the hands of the
immigration authorities.
CLAIMS BOUDREAU
ACTED UNWISELY
Some of the aldermen contend that
Boudreau was influenced and acted un
wisely in the habeas corpus matter and
■hould resign. Among his opponents is
A. A. Hopkins, chairman of the police
committee of the council. Hopkins em
ployes in his grist mill Milford Aldrich,
the complainant against Jerome. Aldrich
says he acted as « zealous citizen and his
contention was sustained by A. C. Han
son. crown prosecutor, who caused the
warrant to be issued.
In finding Thaw subject to deportation,
m decision which was rendered after 4
o'clock this afternoon, the board of In
quiry announced that Thaw "entered
Canada by stealth, contrary to the pro
visions of the Immigration act; that Thaw
"has been insane within five years pre
vious to the present date, and conse
quently comes within the prohibited
classes mentioned In section 3 of the im
migration act, which section provides
that persons who have been insane with
in five years previous shall not be per

THAW ATTORNEYS
PLAY TRUMP CARD;
BAR DEPORTATION
Justice Cross Issues Writ
Demanding Authorities
Produce Thaw in
Montreal Court
Montreal, September !k—-With a l»n*ty
bearing before the local court of np
I iieala, a mail race through the street*
In mi automobile enr to n special train,
and a record ruu to C’oaticook, attor
ney* for Hurry K. Thaw today played
a trump card.
A* writ of habeas corpus issued by Jus
tice Cross, sitting in appeals in conjunc
tion with Justice Gervajs. demands that
the Immigration authorities produce Thaw
in the local court September 15, when
his case will be taken under considera
tion by the full Bench. Application for
right to appeal from the decision of Jus
tice Hutchinson in refusing to grant a
writ of prohibition to restrain the immi
gration officials from proceeding with its
deliberations also was granted.
New Stage in Fight
Today's proceedings riot only mark a
new stage in Thaw’s fight, hut raise the
question for the constitutionality of the
colonial immigration act. Failing to se
cure what they desired at the hands of
the lower court, J. X. Greenshields and
N. K. LaFlamme of Thaw's counsel,
sought to have .Justice Gervais hear them.
As this justice was reluctant to act alone,
the presence of Justice Gross was secured
for a joint hearing. Meanwhile arrange
ments were made by the Thaw counsel
to secure speedy service of the writ, if
granted. A high power automobile was
kept at the court room door and at tne
station a spec ial train was in readiness
to start for Coatlcook, for even if the
writs were granted. It was not impossible
for the commission at Coatlcook, then in
session, to reach a verdict and order
Thaw deported.
When court finally opened the proceed
ings occupied but a few minutes. Justice
Cross signed the writs and immediately
the Thaw lawyers jumped into the wait
ing automobile and In a few minutes were
being whirled away to Coatlcook.
Attorneys Attack Immigration Act
Attorneys Greenshields and LaFlammo
in their argument attacked the constitu
tionality of the colonial immigration act
as a contravention of the natuial law
granting every one the right of free loco
motion; as abusive in character, as it
tended to take away the remedies under
common law; remedies secured under
magna charts, and because In the Thaw
case, it had been abusively made use of
1 v the immigration officials in that they
had seen fit to sit on a board of inquiry
without any complaint having been lodged
with the minister of the interior as pre
sci ibed.
Thaw's attorneys claimed their client
J had not been caught in the act of sneak
i inf into Canada. Hence he could not he
ejected. Tn the carrying on of the inquiry
j they declared the immigration officials
apparently had confounded the ejection
of a new comer with deportation. In a
case of deportation, they submitted, it was
.necessary that a complaint first he lodged
with ti»e minister of the interior, who
would name a commission of inquiry.
The attorneys also argued the uneoYistitu
tlc.nality of the immigration act.
in view of these alleged irregularities
counsel submitted that it would be well
for Thaw's detention and treatment to
!)•» threshed out before the court of king’s
berch.
Officers Wait in Vain
Nortons Mills, Vt.. September 5. This
little border hamlet waited in vain today
to welcome Harry Thaw back to the Uni
ted States. Many residents forsook their
work-a-day pursuits in the hope of see
ing the fugitive. Captain Tohn Lanvon,
specially deputized representative of the
Matteawan asylum for the insane, from
which Thaw fled, was ready with armed
assistants to take him into custody im
mediately he was put over the Canadian
hue, and several deputy sheriffs were here
also.
Lftte in the day. William Travers Je
rome, anticipating the deportation of
Thaw by way of this place, arrived i,n
Ids automobile, after giving bonds on the
charge of gambling inade against him in
Coaticook. When worn came that Thaw's
lawyers had secured a writ of habeas cor
i pus ordering his appearance at Montreal,
[ Mr. Jerome was visibly disappointed.
He departed this evening in his car for
the Oanadnn sde.
Fifty Wounded
Barofkma, September 5.—Fifty person*
were wounded tonight in a fight between
the police and employes of a steamship
who were holding a demonstration

In the cane of Harry Thaw today for
the firnt time nince he wan retained by
ft'ew York ntate to bring; about the fu
gitive nlayer'n return to Mnttcawnn.
The reason was that Mr. Jerome was
in jail himself. For nearly one hour he
f:tood in a small cell in the Coaticook
call boose, charging; with gambling on rail
road property.
Shortly before noon he was released on
$500 bail for a hearing before a magis
trate tomorrow morning.
Arrest of Jerome grew out of his in
formal card game played with reporters
on a suitcase yesterday near the Grand
Trunk railway station where Thaw is
held in the immigration pen.
CROWDS CHEER
FOR HARRY THAW
It sent a thrill through the townspeo
ple ami crowds followed the former dis
trict attorney to the calaboose, some hoot
ing him, some Hhouting hurrah for Thaw,
"Deport Jerome."
Lawyers for Thaw unanimously denied
that they were in any way responsible
lor tbe arrest of Jerome and Hllford Aid
rich, tile complainant, said lie had acted
merely as a public spirited citizen.
Aldrich is a mill hand, lie complained
to the prosecutor that he saw Jerome
playing cards and Justice of the Peace
James McKee signed the warrant.
After to 1,1 he was under arrest Jerome
started with surprise and then smiled
cynically and whs led off. Jerome was
taken into custody at ills hotel by Police
n an John Andrews early In tile day. He
was so surprised lie was almost speech
less.
As a matter of fact lie had indulged
in a cent ante game yesterday witli some
newspaper workers. They used a suit
case for u lapboard and sat In an auto
mobile wailing for the Thaw hearing.
Advices of the arrest of Jerome swept
through roalicook like Chinese wildfire.
JEROME ADMITTED
TO $500 BAIL
Jerome was admitted to $.">uo hail shortly
befors noon. He left tile jail smiling.
Jerome to avoid any complications over
Hs bail slipped out of town unnoticed in
Ilfs automobile.
"We were shocked." said Solicitor Han
son. to "see Mr. Jerome playing cards
for money in public’, and it was our dftty
to arrest him. Little children saw him
and were talking about it. We have never
had an arrest of its kind here, if Jeronjo
tries to leave tills jurisdiction lie will be
arrested.”
Mr. Jerome lert town in his automobile
this afternoon, it was explained that he
"had gone for a ride." ilia ease Is set
lor hearing before a magistrate tomorrow
morning.

amount, unspecified, In a prison sentence,
the maximum of which is one year.
Nortons Mills, Vt.. September 5.—Wil
liam Travers Jerome reached Nortons
Mills on the bonudary line late today
Prior to the time that tills word was
received Jerome was in a joking mood.
"Tt was enough to lose, a dollar and a
half In 1 he game without being ar
rested for It." he said.
Word came to him later that a sec
ond warrant had been sworn out
ngainst him in Coaticook charging him
with fleeing from justice. This veiling
he heard that the provincial author
ities in Quebec were sorry for his ar
rest and that a formal apology from
tlie government might be made.

DISCUSSSITUATION
Developments Will Await
Arrival and Conference
in Washington
MAY ENDEAVOR
TO FLOAT LOAN
Visitor Will Be Treated Courteously
by U. S. Officials—May Not Be
Received Unless He Brings
Positive Assurances
Washington, September .1,— Develop
ments In the Mexican situation proba
bly will await the arrival in Washing
ton of Manuel Dc nmnconu y Inclau,
personal envoy of the Huerta govern
ment, to continue with the Washington
administration the negotiation* begun
by .lotui rind, personal representative
of President WIIhoii In Mexieo.
Administration official* had not decided
tonight whether they' would receive Se.vor
lie Zamacona unless he brought positive
assurances of Huerta’s elimination from
! the presidential election In Mexico, and
vas ready to act upon the other points in
the American proposals for the establish
ment of peace.
Some of the Washington officials feel
that the United States has made its posi
tion sufficiently clear through the parleys
conducted by Mr. Lind and the address
of President Wilson to Congress. There
is. however, a disposition to receive Senor
De Zamacona in view of the courtesy
shown Mr. Lind.
Would Float Loan
Senor De Zamacona’s chief connection
with the Mexican government in the past
has been In financial matters, and his mis
sion is said to contemplate not only tlie
furtherance of the negotiations looking
toward peace, but the floating of a loan
that would be encouraged by the Amer
ican government. He has managed Mex
ico’s financial affairs in Europe hereto
fore and during his stay here as am
bassador to the United States in 1911 be
came widely known and popular with dip
lomatic corps.
Senor De Zamacona’s departure from
Vera Cruz yesterday took Washington
officials somewhat by surprise, for while
the suggestion had been made to them
by the Huerta government that he might
be sent to Washington to conduct fur
ther negotiations, the Huerta administra
tion ordered him to proceed to the United
States without awaiting the answer of
the American government. This phase of
the situation created a feeling of optimism
here, for it was interpreted as meaning
that the Mexican government understood
that the United States considered the
elimination of Huerta from the presiden
tial race as having been assured in Senor
Gamboa's second note and was ready to
take up the suggestions of help In finan
cial maters offered by Mr. Lind.
Drafting Rejoinder
It is known that the administration here
has under consideration the drafting of a
rejoinder to Gamboa’s second note. It
would accept Senor Gamboa’s contention
that Huerta is ineligible for the presi
dency as an implied pledge that he would
not enter the list in October. Putting this
viewpoint on record, it is believed here,
would permit the United States to go for
ward with Its suggestions for the arrange
ment of an armistice and the bolding of a
fre ana constitutional election.
Whether the note will be delivered, how
ever, by Mr. Lind or handed to Senor De
Zamacona on his arrival here has not
been disclosed.
Zamacona to Represent Huerta
Notwithstanding the denial by For
eign Minister Gamboa of knowledge of
the mission to Washington of Manuel
De Zamacoma, there is ground for the
belief that Senor De Zamacona is to
represent President Huerta in some
capacity in the American capital. Se
nor De Zamacona visited the foreign
office for hours at a tim. for several
days prior to leaving the capital. Senor
Gamboa declared today thre was no
foundation for the report that De Zam
acona would represent President Huerta
and expressed Ignorance of the fact
that he had left for the United States
Senor Gamboa ridiculed the idea that
Nelson O'Shaughnessy. the. American
charge d'affaires, had been given verbal
assurances that General Huertp would
not be a candidate for the presidency.
He declared that such an assurance
"might he good for a day or a year,
but at best It would be informal ai.d
not binding."
He added that he had received no
communication of any sort from John
Lind and that he had not been ad
vised as to the whereabouts or Inten
tions pf President Wilson's personal
representative.

District
—,
Hot Springs, September 5.—Fire which started in a negro’s
cabin at 3:30 o'clock tins afternoon is slowly dying out at the
foot of West mountain, the southern extremity of Hot Springs,
at midnight after reducing to a smouldering mass of wreckage
an area more than a mile in length and from seven to 10 blocks
wide in the eastern section of the city. An accurate statement
of the monetary loss is not possible tonight, but it is roughly
estimated at $10,000,000.
Governor Hays arrived in Hot
Springs late tonight and will prob
ably establish a military patrol of the
burned district tomorrow morning.
United States troops are also expected
from Little Rock to add to the guard
on the military reservation.
In the path of the flames were
.manufacturing plants, hotels, a ruin
I ber of the more pretentious residences
I and public buildings. All were de
1 stroyed. It is estimated that 2000
| persons are homeless.
So far as can be ascertained there were
no fatalities and the few that wore hurt
suffered only minor injuries.
WATERWORKS
ARE DESTROYED
Among tile buildings destroyed were the
city's light, water and power plants, the
county courthouse, the high school build
ing, the Park. Moody and Princess ho
tels, St. Louis, Iron Mountain and South
ern railroad station and shops and the
Ozark sanitarium. Smaller buildings by
the hundreds were reduced to ashes.
But few of those whose homes were
burned saved any of their belongings
and guests of the hotels gave little heed
to their valuables and luggage in their
efforts to escape with their lives.
The tire originated within several
blocks of the Lniteil States Army and.
i>avy hospital and took a south and east
course.
The frail structures in the negro sec
tion about Church street and Malvern
avenue, where the fire started, made
more than ordinarily inflammable by an
extended drought, burned like tinder and,
driven by a wind of almost cyclonic pro
portions, spread rapidly. Within 15 min
utes it was apparent that the tire light
ing force of Hot Springs was inadequate
and an appeal was made to Little Rock
for aid. Apparatus and men were sent,
hut the conflagration was then beyond
control. Dynamite was resorted to when

Engineer Miller Blames the
North Haven Wreck on
“Banjo” System
New Haven, September 5.—The *o
called "banjo" signal system Installed
on the New Haven railroad nearly 25
years ago was charged In sworn tes
timony today with responsibility f„r
the death of# 21 persons In the wreck
on that road last Tuesday. The testi
mony was given at the Interstate com
merce commission’s Inquiry to deter
mine the causes of the disaster.
The “banjo” system was admitted by
officers of the road to he Inf fior to
up-to-dale systems In use on other
roads. Hacking a "caution” signal as
protection against a danger signal as
In modern systems, the “banjo" type,
according to half a dozen trainmen,
caused engineers to "drift by their
signals in foggy weather before they
could stop their trains.
Such was the reason for the North
Haven wreck, according to Kriglneer
August 11. Miller, who was at tire throt
tle of the locomotive of tli White
Mountain express when It plunged Into
the rear of the Bar Hnrhnr express
on the fatal Tuesday morning. Train
Sheets Introduced In evldsnc. today
however, showed that Miller’s train
I was speeding over 51 miles an hour.
Protested “Banjo” Sysiem
More, than a year ago the Brother
hood of locomotive Engineers protested
against the "banjo" system as nut of
fering sufficient protection and asked
that it lie abolished. Correspondence to
this effect was placed in evidence.
That an order to stop the White
Mountain express at Wallingford, three
miles north of the wreck, was sent
from New Haven and then rescinded,
was one feature of the testimony Tills
was told by John C. Kelly, the New
Haven train dispatcher, who produce,!
Iroln sheets showing that the While
Mountain brought up the rear .if a pro
cession of six trains w hich passed Wal
lingford within 32 minutes. The first
live of them, Kelly testified, were on
the 10-mile stretch between Walling
ford and Airline Junction, Just north
of here, all at the same time.
Kelly said he originally had given
the order to stop because of the long
time the first, of the five trains took to
reach Airline Junction and had re

Drew t'a mlnettl, em of the commission
er general of Immigration, au found
guilty Inte today on one ennnt of the
Indictment charging him with vlolntl»u
of the Mann white alnve net.
The Jury tvaa out three hours and
look eight ballots. From the first the
vote stood 10 to 2 for conviction and
finally the two recalcitrants agreed to
compromise by finding a verdict of
guilty on one of the four counts
charged.
Ball In the sum of $10,000 was fur
nished. Sentence will be pronounced
Wednesday. September 10, the day sot
for sentencing Maury I. Diggs, Joint
ly indicted with Camlnettl ind con
victed on four counts. Exceptions to
the charge of Judge Van Fleet as a
whole and In part were taken by
counsel and a pe-tltlon for an appeal
will be filed, as was announced in tho
case of Dig'RH.
lakes Verdict Lightly
Caminettl took the verdict lightly,
smiling a forced smile and nudging his
brother jocularly. First he lifted his
little daughter. Naomi, who was play
ing at his feet, and placed her care
fully in her mother’s lap. Then lie shook
i hands with his lawyers and with Diggs,
who had been sitting nearby.
His mother and wife showed no emo
tion. Caminettl and Maury T. Diggs,
former state architect of California,
were Jointly Indicted on six counts,
and Diggs was found guilty on four
of them, the jury being unable to agree
on the other two. Because of the spe
cial circumstances surrounding Cam
inetti’s individual part in tho flight
from Sacramento, Cal., to Reno, Nev.,
with Marsha Warrington and Lola Nor
ris. the government elected In the sec
ond trial to press only four counts.
The first two counts charged that he
transported and aided in transporting
the two young women from menu*
to Reno in violation of ilia Maun act.
One count applied to each girl and
pach count carried a maximum penaJty
of live years in a federal prison and
$5000 fine.
Thus Diggs is liable to a maximum
sentence of 20 years’ imprisonment and
$20,000 fine, and Caminettl to five years
and $5000 fine.
The verdicts correspond with the con
tention of the government, which was
that Diggs was the self-constituted
boss and major dorno of the party and
Caminettl more or less a passive and
pliant agent.
The second two counts charged that
Caminettl “persuaded and aided in per
suading, inducing and enticing" tho
