his sermon last night to an inquiry '
'nto the immediate causes of the evil j

of a course of action wh'ch might re-;

Ip to Ike Helle?.
To the police of the city, sa'd the i
pastor, appeal must b? made for a
stricter enforcement of the law against '
crimes of this nature than has hitherto j
been the case Pwnishrtent for In?
fractions of tins claas. be said, has
been wholly too lax and infrequent >
?*Every now ^nd then." *ald Mr.
Wells "we hear a Mttle stir about
breaking up the crowds of sports who i
hand out on the Broad Street corners |
and ogle every woman who passes and !
make remarks about h?r. but the'
sports stil. stand on. the corners and
nothing seems to be dor.e about It. You!
men who vote can break it up if you '
"fc'ou go as Individuals to the police'
commissioners and ask them to enforce
certain evils, and you are apt to be told
to produce evidence of violation and
the rase will be attended to. An
aroused public opinion should say to
thos*- responsible for the enforcement
of law that they have been put Into
their positions, and their salaries are
pid. by the tax-paying citizens of
the city, and it is not your business as
individuals' to police the city, but it
is their business.

This is a matter of too much Import?
ance to be trifled with '
?lasses Moder? Fashions.
Is his analysis of the causes under?
lying the vice-wa\e which seems to
be sweeping over the city as well as
the country at large. Mr. Wells took
' up one after the other the chief sources
of infection. Poverty and squalid sur?
roundings, ignorance of the elemen?
tary laws and sexual hygiene, inherit?
ed animalism, and lack of parental
discipline, he said, were the main con?
tributing causes. Until these are re?
moved or at least moderated thought
the minister, little hope can be hcldi
To the more potent evils just named,.
Mr. Wells added the inslduous influence'
of present day fashions In dress. A
reform of feminine fashions along sane
lines, he said, is Imperative to moral
welfare. On this point the preacher
said: ?
"It is by no meants a matter of small
Importance that there should be a re?
form in dress which will bring us to
the modest fashions of former years.
I believe no thoughtful person will train
say the fact that the response of our
women ft* the dictates o' fashion Is
playing a par:, and net small part. In
the spread of immorality."
Tee Warfe ?slUSSltsm,
The minister denounced as one of the
contributing causes of social vice, the
currency which has been given to
proclamations of naturalistic and pagan
th-orles of life. He defined a subtle
?nfluence at work breaking down pub?

General Organizer of Industrial

Taken Into Custody After Sound?
ing Call for Nation
Wide Strike.
Boston. Mass.. September 15.?Wil?
liam L?. Haywood. of Denver, general
organizer of the Industrial Workers j
of the World, was arrested here to?
day on a capias warrant Issued as the
result of sn indictment by the Essex
County grand Jury, charging him with
conspiracy in connection with the
strike of textile workers in Lawrence :
last winter. He was released on $1.00<J
The exact nature of the conspiracy
with which Hay wood is charged was'
not mentioned In the Indictment. Just
before his arrest, Haywood. in ad
j dressing a mass-meting of 15.000 per?
sons on Boston Common, had sounded
I a call for a general strike of New;
I England workers to begin a nation-1
! wide movement as a protest against j
[ the "arrest, imprisonment and trial of
Ettor, Giovannitti and Caruso." These j
three industrial workers, who were I
active during the Lawrence strike, are
chargej .with complicity to murder in!
connection witTi the shooting of . a j
striker, Anna Lopfzzo. during a riot I
in Lawrence last January,
j At to-day-s meting banners were dls- |
i played calling for the release of the \
I three leaders, and Haywood was cheer- ]
[ ed when he cried:
j "We will open the jail doors or i
j close the mill gates."
Urse? Immediate Strike. j
In urging a general strike Haywood i
I declared it probably would be a fact !
I by the end of the coming week, and;
that It surely would come before Sep- '
tember 30. the date set for the be- i
ginning of the leaders' trials. He ad?
vised the assembled workers to begin
the strike to-morrow.
"If you leave your benches to-mor?
row you will make no mistake*' he
said. "Any time between now and'
September 30. will do. but the sooner
the better. If you go oat to-morrow
j you will be the forerunners, the van
i guard of a great movement for free
! dorn."
I Haywood declared that such a str'ke.
I as a movement of general protest I
' would "save lives Just as did that !
I great movement of sympathy and sup- |
port which resulted In the vlndica-!
tion of Mover. Pettlbone and myself." j
The Indictment on which Haywood |
wss arrested was returned by the Es- i
sex County grand Jury several months;
ago. and although the State police!
made preparations to arrest him wheni
I it was announced that he would come'
into the State to-day. no Interference!
with th? mass-meeting was attempted, j
Haywood held a reception on the Com- ?
mon. delivered his speech, and then
hurried away through the crowd to
one of the Common exits where offi-?
cers of the State police met him snd
took him to the police station. He
was ordered to appear before the Su?
perior Criminal Court of Essex County
j at Lawrence to-morrow morntng. Ball
was furnished by Attorney Frederick;
j H. Moore, of Los Angeles, who has:
been engaged to defend Ettor. Gio- J
J vanottl and Caruso. To attend the j
j protest meeting on the '"ommon. more

New Tork, September 15.?Every ef-'

fort of police and district attorney toi
induce 'Gyp the Blood" and "Lefty
Louie" to break their silence has so!
far failed. The arrest of these twoj
gunmen, completing the round-up of
all men wanted n connection with the
murder of Herman Rosenthal, the'
gambler, just two months a??o to-night.;
was followed by four hours examina
tloa of the new prisoners to-day.
The men were examined separately'
by Deputy Police Commissioner George
P. Dougherty and by Assistant District!
Attorney Prank Moss, in the absence
of District Attorney Charles S. Whit-!
man. but according to both men. |
Dougherty and Moss. "Gyp" and
"Lefty" were determined to "stand;
Nothing whatever in the nature of:
a confession COuM be obtained from
them. In an effort to reinforce evi-1
dence against the men. the police to-1
day formally held their wives as ma-:
terial witnesses, as well as a third man,]
Max Kahn, who the police say is a
pickpocket, and who was in the flat:
with the gunmen and their wives when:
the detectives bro?e in upon them at;
supper last nlgnt. All three of these i
witnesses were arraigned to-day be-'
fore Coroner Feinberg, and held inj
$1.000 bail each. The police also seized]
a large number of papers In the flat
where the capture was made.
No Promise of I^aleaey.
Mr. Moss said no promise of leniency
; had been given the prisoners for ad
mision such as some of those concern?
ed in the murder have made, reault
? ing in the Indictment of Police Lleu
: tenant Charles Becker as tbe instlga
i tor of the crime.
I Horowitz and F.osenzweie; probably
will be arraigned op a formal charge
of murdering Rosenthal before a Jus?
tice of the Supreme Court to-morrow.
It is expected that the arraignment
will take place in Justice GofTs court.
Although the district attorney's of?
fice had offered $5.000 for the oapture
of "Gyp the Blood" and "Lefty Louie,"
the police detectives who brought
about their arrest will not get the
reward. The provisions of Mr. Whit?
man's offer specifically barred the po
j lice.
So far as development* here were'
: concerned there was no evidence of
friction between the police and the
district attorney's office over the hand?
ling of the case In Its latest phases.1
Police headquarters scouted tbe infor?
mation that there was significance in;
tbe tact that the arrest of the two
] men followed closely upon Mr. Wbit-;
I man's departure tor Hot Springs, it
was pointed out that Mr. Moss wss
j called in immediately to represent. Mr.
Whitman, and given every opportun?
ity to examine the prisoners.

The arrests of the stwo gunmen
Last night ware the result of unbroken
surveillance of the wives and rela?
tives of the men since their disap?
pearance on the day of tbe murder.
' July K. This surveillance was main-!
] tained by sixty detectives work'ng in

, Tbe final clue came as the result of'
I piecing together a number of conver

1 Sinned I "W. G. BALDWIN."
The ?oregolng telegram received by
the Governor shortly before noon yes?
terday represents the sum total of.the
information received at the executive
mansion from the fibers in charge of
Sidna Allen and Wesley Edwards, tha
Carroll County outlaws, who wer?
captured Saturday in Des Moines by a.
trio of Baldwin detectives. The mes?
sage was nled en route early yester?
"i knew nothing more of the capture
than has appeared in the newspapers."
said Governor Mann last night. '?From
the message I received to-day. and
from the press accounts which I have
read. I can see nothing in the whole
matter other than the fact that the
men have been captured and are now
on their way to Virginia. The news?
paper accounts of the Des Moines cap?
ture agree with the Information I bad
beforehand, and are substantially cor?
Silent on Reported Betrayal.
I Governor Mann was shown a mes?
sage from Des Moines carrying an ac?
count of a confession reported to have,
been made to Chief of Police Jenney,
of that city, by Maude Iroler, the
Mount Airy. X. C. sweetheart of Wes?
ley Edwards, who wittingly or un?
wittingly led the detectives to the
aUbve of the fugitives.
The alleged confession of Miss
Iroler is to the effect that she had
been promised the reward which v-as
offered by Governor Mann for the ar?
rest of the outlaws, and that she in?
tended to return at once and claim
"I have nothing to say in regard tc
j this." said the Governor last night
j when asked by a reporter for The
Times-Dispatch for a statement as to
Its trustworthiness. "I cannot discuss
' it ." In Cincinnati last night Edwards
denied the report that Miss Iroler be?
trayed him.
Indictment la Carroll.
The outlaws and their escort ara
expected to reach noanoke this morn?
ing. and will be lodged in 'ail there
to await further action by the Carroll
County authorities. The indictments
will have to be formally entered in
: Carrol! County, where the murders
were committed. Unless a change of
yenuc Is demanded and granted, the
I trial ?>f Sidna Allen and Wesley Ed?
wards will take place In the same
courtroom where the judge and court
j officers were killed.
j In all likelihood." said Governor
! Mann, "Judge Waller R. Staples wno
tried the other members of the clan,
win preside at the trial of Sidna Allen
and Wesley Edwards. He is familiar
with the case and Is the logical man
to try them Judge A. A. Campbell, of
I the Twenty-first Judicial Circuit. In
j which Hillsville Is situated, would
J hardly be In a position to preside.
"I think there Is no doubt but that
I Judge Staples win try the men. He
will, of course, have the power of
designating the place of trial, for this.
!ss well as the time of trial, is In his
; hands."
1? Dem?Iriih! Feared.
The effectiveness with which the
case against the other Aliens has
been prosecuted, as w?ll as tbe time
which has elapsed since the Carroll
County shooting, have removed all
dmger of mob violence, and no special
p-jard. it Is e .pected. will be desig?
nated by the Governor, unless later
developments should warrant It. The
TTis-mers will be amply guarded In
K'unoke and will be given a strong
escort of poilce and detectives when
taken to Hillsville to plead.
