No final decision has yet been taken, but prac tically all the proletariat organiza tions, including- that of the railroad men, but excepting the telegraphers, have already pronounced In favor of this step.

Constantlne, alleged murderer of Mrs. Louise A. Gentry, Is under arrest In Ponghkeepsle, N. Y. It was announced today by Assist ant Chief of Police Schuettler that Constantlne had been captured but he refused to reveal the name of the town In which the arrest occurred. It Is known, however, that, earlier In the day an officer was sent to Springfield for reqnls Itlon papers naming Constantlne, and the town In which he Is held as Poughkeepsle. Constantlne was recognized by a woman who at one time lived In the apartment building in which the mur der was committed on January 6 last. She reported to the authorities at Poughkeepsle that the man was Con stantlne, and he was at once arrested. Sheriff Hoffman of Duchess county, N. Y., telegraphed the local police that he is holding Constantlne, saying that the prisoner did not deny his name, but claimed he Is a brother of Frank J. Constantlne. Letters, cards and papers found on the man all bore the name of Constantlne. The murder of Mrs.- Gentry was one of the series of crimes against women which was committed early in the year, whicn aroused public indigna tion. No motive for the crime hits ever been 'discovered as Constantlne and Mrs. Gentry were alone in the apart ment at the time. No trace of Con stantlne was ever found after he left the building/ except from a store keeper of whom he bought a hat thirty minutes after the murder. The first intimation given of the crime was by Mrs. Gentry herself, who fell down a stairway to the door of a physician on the floor below. Open ing the door he found Mrs. Gentry- ly ing against it with her throat cut from ear to ear. Jj3he had evidently Intended to go out, as she -was dressed for the street Her death occurred within a few minutes and without her being able to utter a word. Constantlne was a boarder in the Gentry apartments, and a razor marked "C." was found on the floor just outside the doorway. It has al ways been the theory of the police that he approached her from behind and cut her throat before she was aware of his intentions. He was seen by a number of people to run from the building, but with the exception of the proprietor of the hat store no body is known to have seen him since he left the building. A. W. Gentry, the husband of Mrs. Gentry who is a prosperous business man, offered large rewards for the ar rest of Constantlne, and many meg were arrested in various parts of the country, but all were later released.
