to-night. The Constantinople claim
that the bultan's forces had won "a

to Supreme Court.
Floyd Allen, the man who or. the
morning of March 14, 1912. swore in
the presence of the court and the Jury
which had convicted him that he would
never go to Jail, was brought to the
j Slate Penitentiary yesterday morning
and placed in the death cell. With him
was his youi.ger son, Claude, Swanson
Allen. The two men are under sen?
tence of death In the electric chair on
November 22 for their part in the
; shooting which resulted in the mur
; der of a Virginia Judge, a Juror, a
' sheriff and an attorney for the Cjni
i rnonwealth.
Under the law, prisoners condemned
? to 6te must be removed from Jail to the
' penitentiary not more than thirty nor
I less than fifteen days before the date
j set for their execution, it was re
i cently determined that It would be ad
I visable to have Floyd and Claude
j Allen brought to the State prison at
j as early a date as possible. Superln
tendent James B. Wood was notified
! Friday of the readiness of the prlson
i ers. and sent Keeper R- R Penn and
I Guard John P. Mulllns to Roanoke.
j where the Aliens have been kept ever
! since their arrest In March, save when
in attendance on the trials at Wythe
Kept Frees Public.
Following the plan adopted from the
i beginning, the movements of the Aliens
I were kept from the public. Tne pris
i oners were taken to the train <n Roa
I lioke early yesterday morning, at an
i hour when practically no one is on the
i streets. They Spent the night fitting
in a sleeper, without retiring. At T
I o'clock they arrived In Richmond.
' During the trip the Aliens talked with
j the officers most of the time, sleeping
j not at all.
The party was met at the Byrd Street
J Station by Major Wood, who had de
: termmed to attend in person to the
? transfer to the prison. The penlten
! tlary carriage was In waiting, and to
j It the Aliens were hurried. The drive
i was a matter of but a few minutes,
j Floyd and Claude Allen, mountaineers,
j gazed their first and last upon a mod
j ern skyscraper, caught a glimpse ot
the Capitol of their State, the seat of
I the law they had treated with con
j tempt. Then the doors of the prison
; opened for them and closed behind
, them. When their bod'es are borne
out the law will have done its utmost.
Shew Little resteers.
I So far as appearance went, the con
j Temned prisoners seemed to Wink or
! care little of their fate. They were
1 as calm as they have been from the be
j ginning. Fear Is an unknown quantity
. to them when It refers to personal en
j counters. .Floyd AUen has been in
j many difficulties, and when his temper
j was aroused he was never afraid. The
fear that no man c,an resist for long.
! that of the unknown, has not as yet. It
: seemed, touched them, or if it has they
successfully conceal it.
! As soon as the preliminaries at the
' penitentiary had been completed ana
: the names and other records of the
? prisoners duly entered, they were as
> signed to cells in the section set apart
: for those who are condemned to die.
; They will not be compelled to wear
; stripes, nor will they work. They may
j read and write, see their immediate
! families, spiritual advisers and attor
\ neys. \o other visitors will be per

? nephews of Floyd Allen and cousins to
' Claude, have not seen the new arrivals,
nor Is it probable they will be per?
mitted to do so. No good can be ac

meeting. Friel. who has a sentence ot

The Governor said he enjoyed the
game very much. As an old football
' coach himself, he remarked that the
teams were evenly matched, despite
the result, and would hazard uo predic?

Vale game,
i "1 couldn't do much rooting," he
1 said, "on account of my voice. I'm sav?

j which are usually fragmentary and

I Even if the Governor goes to bed

New York. October 26-?The action
of Governor Dig In relieving Major
ueneral John F. O'Rvan of all com?
mand of the National Ouard except in
the field on active duty, and making
Adjutant-General Verbeck supreme,
with the added title of chief of staff,
has torn the State soldiery asunder as
nothing has done tn two decades.
Twelve commanding officers of the
guard, two of whom at least are
brigadier-generals, mailed protests to
the Governor this morning. They de?
scribed the action as not only illegal,
but demoralizing to the guard.
There were intimations ?hat the
twelve lieutenant-colonels, chiefs of
departments on Get(ral O'Kyan's staff,
drafted to the staff of General
- I rbeck by the Friday order, will not
serve, but will ask to be placed on
' the supernumerary Hat watting for a
change of administration on January 1.
There are reports that certain mem?
bers of the personal ataff Of Governor
Ma w ill resign
Major-General O'Ryan would not
! say a word about the situation.
1 It was established that Major-Gen?
eral O'Ryan had never aaked for a
; salary of ts.000 a year, as the Friday
j dispatches from Albany stated, but
, that, he did ask for allowances during
: the time he was actively employed
.in preparing for the Joint manoeuvres
i In Connecticut.
The first d? ? istve move . In the fight
to superaede General O'Ryan was the
announcement. October 4 in Albany,
that the Governor had appointed
Adjutant-General Verbeck. chief of
staff. I
Thia move started the military pot
to boiling. Men who had been in the
guard In responsible positions for fif?
teen years or more aaw in it, they
said, an attempt to put the State
Ti:llitia back where It waa prior to
lagt; when the Adjutant-General was
la supreme command.
The order brought about a meeting
of commanding offlcera at the office
ol Major-Geperal O'Ryap on October ?.
The only report that came out of the
meeting was that the officers bad
agreed that the order creating the
chief of stafr was against the Interest
of the State force. This report went
to Albany, and promptly General
O'Ryan received an order from Albany
to report In writing about the meet?
ing. Ills- removal followed.
