were treated for other ills without ef
fect, when there was nothing w’rong ex
cept being infected with the parasite they
are trying to destroy.
The Walker County Medical associa
tion has indorsed the movement and is
co-operating with the health department
doctors in their campaign for better san

school hoard 1ms ovuered that every child
attending the school be examined for
the parasite and some of the superin
tendents of mines have requested the
doctors to visit thelg camps end give
their employes a chance to have their
children attend their dispensary and hear
their lectures on sanitation and hygiene.
Fewer of the people of Walker county
are infected with the parasite than they
find in many counties, states Dr. Grote,
hut they have not found a county in
which the people showed as much in
terest in their physical welfare and that
of their children.
Dr. Orr leaves in a few’ days to begin
the campaign in Tuscaloosa county, which
he will conduct for the next two months.
After about lo days Dr. Grote. will go to

Concord, N. H.. September 17.—Har
ry Kendall Thaw was brought to the
capital of New Hampshire this after
noon to await a hearing hefoi'6 Gov
ernor Felker on Tuesday next on the
matter of his extradition to New York.
If extradition is refused he will be a
free man to go where lie will within

United States district court on a writ

Tne statehouse stands almost direct
ly opposite the Eagle hotel, where
Thaw’ is held under the joint custody
of United States Marshal Note and
Sheriff Drew of Coos. The structure
was built in 1818 and, except for ad
ditions, stands as in the original. Thaw
slept tonight in “the throne room" of
the Eagle hotel, quarters made famous
as the conference headquarters of New
Hampshire politicians in days gone
by and since occupied by Taft and
Roosevelt on Iheir campaign tours.
The curious, the sympathetic and tin
enthusiastic greeted Thaw at every
station between here and Littleton to
day. Two women school teachers, a
minister and a venerable man of 80
were among the many who wisned him
good luck and good cheer.
At Plymouth, where the fugitive
lunched, the restaurant proprietor pre
sented him with a box of cigars. Thaw
promptly purchased two boxes of cig
arettes and left them with the remark:
“Give these to Jerpme."
Rooms had been reserved In the Eagle
hotel tonight for Mrs. Mary Copley Thaw’,
mother of the fugitive, and for Joslah
Thaw, his brother. Neither came, but
Thaw said he expected them in the morn
Between now and Tuesday, when the
extradition hearing will be held, Thaw
will have nothing to do but lounge
around his room with his custodians.
Being in charge of a United States mar
shal, ail rumors of his being kidnaped
have been crushed.
Might Wait Years on Appeal
Washington. September 17.—Weeks,
months, or possibly years might roll by
before the supreme court would act final
ly should Harry K. Traw appeal from
the decision in the habeas corpus pro
cer dings now pending in New Hamp
shire. Of late, however, the court lias
disposed of such important cases quickly.
•Whether an appeal to the supreme court
from the action of Federal Judge Aldrich,
before whom the habeas corpus proceed
ings were brought, may be granted, will
rest entirely, it is said, with Judge Aid
rich himself.
A few years ago an appeal from the
denial of the writ of habeas corpus was
grantable as a matter of right. Prac
tices grew up, however, which courts re
garded as travesties on justice, and the
law was changed to give the Judge pass
ing on the case the power to say whether
there was sufficient doubt as to the points
raised to justify an appeul.
The supreme court does not meet be
fore October 13.
There are now more than 700 cases
awaiting disposition, and it will take the
court more than two years to pass on
them. Upon the request of either the
state of New Hampshire or of New York
the court might advance the case for
consideration about the first Monday in
December. In the ordinary course or
events a decision would be handed down
in the following January.
Mucli doubt is expressed here as to
whether the New York authorities could
find a way to have tho higher court re
view Judge Aldrich's action should lie
release Thaw from custody.
