OU l^/JlliX 19 PER MONTH DETECTIVE TELLS OF FINDING BODY IN CRIPPEN HOME Officers Expect to Have Mont* rose Suspect in Jail This Morning PLAN TO RUSH COURT HEARING Montreal Has Unconfirmed Re port That Doctor Ended His Life in Steamer (Associated Press) FATHER POINT, Quebec, July 30.— Barring unforeseen delay It will be known by noon tomorrow whether Dr. Hawley Harvey Crlppen and his sten ographer, Ethel Claire Leneve, are aboard the steamship Montrose. Tonight the vessel is forcing her way through a storm up the St. Lawrence river and nearlng this point, where Inspector Dew of Scotland Yard, with Canadian officers, waits Impatiently to clamber aboard and arrest the man whom he believes to be the American dentist, a fugitive from Justice charged with the murder in Lodon of an un identified woman, thought to have been his actress wife. Belle Elmore. Early this afternoon Captain Kendall sent a wireless that he expected to be here by 6 o'clock Sunday morning, but later a storm came down the river and i* seemed unlikely that the steamer would make as good time as her com mander expected. If the police carry out their program, they will land the pair at Quebec before 9 o'clock Sunday night. If there is no hitch in arrange ments and Identification the prisoners will be kept in Jail at Quebec until Monday morning, when .they will be arraigned before Judge Panet Angers at Quebec. HAVE BUBH PLANS Unless Crippen shows unusual re sourcefulness the Canadian police ex pect to place him in the hands of In spector Dew the same day to be taken back to England on the next steam ship sailing from Quebec on Thursday. Frederick M. Ryder, the American consul at Rimouskl, . near here, today came.to Father Point to see Inspector Dew. He has no Intention of inter fering with the action of the Canadian authorities, but considers it his duty to be on hand in case Crippen considers that, his rights an an American citizen are being Infringed and to advise him concerning his privileges. Fog and thunderstorms tonight In terrupted wireless communication be tween the Montrose and the local sta tion. •« • ' ■ Inspector Dew In a private chat to day described the discovery of the body believed to have been Belle Elmore's in Crlppen'B London home. '-■•., FINDING ■ THE BODY ' ; "I saw nothing amiss when I first went through the house," he said, "and although I searched each room care fully twice, with the same result, I was not satisfied. I thought It would be well to go back and test the walls with an iron bar. So I went back the fourth time, and at first found nothing amiss. "The cellar walls all seemed sound, but striking about with the iron bar I struck a loose brick, and out It fell. "instantly I began to tear away the loose bricks, and underneath I found a mass of human flesh, eaten away with lime. Not a bone was found, and I believe the murderer, with his medical skill, separated them from the flesh and threw them Into a canal not far from the house." A ■ rumor reached here tonight from Montreal that Crippen committed sui cide on board the Montrose. This caused considerable uneasiness, al though It came absolutely without foundation. Inspector Dew got in touch with the Montrose again about 10 o'clock, and although he would not say what mes sages he received, he seemed relieved by the news. The Inspector's greatest fear is that Crippen may recognize him before he gets aboard the Montrose and make an attempt to commit sui cide. To prevent this Dew, It was said, has arranged to go aboard disguised as a pilot.

The order provides that the rate on lemons from California points to eastern destina tions shall not exceed $1 a hundred pounds, it having been eaid by the commission that the present rate of $1.60 per hundred pounds was unrea sonable. The cas« was brought originally by the Arlington Heights Fruit exchange of Los Angeles against the Southern Pacific company and other trans continental carriers. The difference in the freight rates between the existing rates and those ordered by the commission amounts to many thousands of dollars annually to the Pacific coast growers. The commission suspended its order be cause a restraining order had been sought from the courts by the car riers. Pending a definite determina tion of the court's order the commis sion felt It desirable to postpone its directions. . SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 31, 1910. MADRIZ AGENTS PROTEST AGAINST HORNET'S SAILING Counsellors Demand an Exam ination of Vessel Now En Route to New Orleans PROTECT NEUTRALITY LAWS Estrada Men Deny Yacht Has Been Adapted to Warlike Uses Within U. S. < Associated Press) WASHINGTON, July 30.—Counsellors for the M^drir government in Nicar agua, acting under cable instructions from Managua today filed formal pro tests with this government against the sailing of the yacht Hornet, common ly reported to have been bought for the Estrada revolutionists at Norfolk last week, and demand an examination of the vessel, which Is now en route to New Orleans. The department of Justice, It is un derstood, has instructed 1 United States Attorney Batie at New Orleans to take whatever steps may appear to be necessary for the protection of the neu trality laws before clearance papers are issued to the Hornet. The depart ment of commerce and labor in the same protest has been asked not to clear the ship, and the state depart ment has been reminded of the case of the Alabama of Civil war fame. The Madriz counsellors maintain that the ship has been adapted to warlike use within the Jurisdiction of the United States and has forfeited her character as a merchant vessel and cannot sail from any port in the United States without violating the neutrality laws. When the Estrada men heard of the protest they pointed to the fact that the navy department removed the guns from the Hornet before she was sold and by that action they claim the Hor net returned to her character of a yacht, peaceable and harmless. REVOLUTIONISTS RENEW ACTIVITY IN NICARAGUA Defeat Madriz' Forces in Battle Near Managua WASHINGTON, July 30— Renewed activity on the part of the revolution ists In Southwestern Nicaragua was reported to the state department today by United States Consul Olivares of Managua. Since July 23 the consul reported, the telegraph wire between Managua and San Juan del Sur had been cut re peatedly by the revolutionists operat ing in the vicinity of Nandanmel. Com muniaction with the cable station at San Juan del Sur also has been in terrupted. On July 26 the Madriz forces at a small town named Masatepe, twenty miles east of Managua, on the railway, were defeated and arms and ammuni tion captured. Public service on the railroad had been suspended from Managua east ward. EMBEZZLED $1000 FROM HIS BROTHER, IS CHARGE C. N. McClune Taken from Santa Fe Train on Way East SA. I BERNARDINO, July 30.—C. N. McCune, 35 years old, was lodged in the county Jail from the desert this morning, charged with having stolen $1000 from his brother, Thomas Mc- Cune of Santa Margarita. He Is also accused of stealing $100 from D. G. Ladd of that place. Sheriff McFadden of San Luis Obispo, who has been pur suing McCune by train, started for San Luis Obispo with him this after noon. McCune came from Ireland over a year ago to join his brother, who paid his way from the old country. He acted as right hand man for his brother, Thomas McCune. a prosper ous rancher from the northern county, ani. when the latter sold a ranch for $1000 he turned the cash over to the fugitive to bank. Ladd, a farm hand, had $100 which he wanted placed in the bank, and he gave this to C. N. Mc- Cune also. The sight of so much money all In a lump sum stirred the avarice of the brother, who planned to return to Ire land and live In ease. He expressed the $1100 to the old country and he took the train out of San Luis Obispo Fri day morning. The brother had been to Paso Roble-s and on his return dis covered C. N. McCune's dishonesty. He rode forty-eight miles to San Luis Obispo to notify Sheriff McFadden, who quickly got a line on the fugitive and telephoned here to Sheriff Ralphs, who had a deputy take the fugitive from a Salt Lake overland at Clma, on the desert, last night.

V£S9B STRIKERS AMBUSH GUARDS AT MINE Four Thousand Miners Reported to Be Assembling to Bat tle with Police GRBENSBURG, Pa., July 30—Fol lowing defeat in an alleged plot to draw a score of officers into a death trap early today, it was reported that striking miners near Export were mo bilizing an army of nearly 4000 to avenge the loss of one man and the injury of many more in a battle be tween the deputies and fifty alleged strikers today. While it was still dark early this morning fire was set to a vacant building near the mines with the purpose, it is charged, of drawing officers within range of its glare. Meanwhile fifty armed miners stationed themselves on a hill in the shadow 200 feet away. Three state policemen and fifteen deputies came hurrying to the blaze to find themselves the objects of a hail of bullets from the darkened hilltop. State Officer George Davis fell with a wound in the leg. The other officers charged the hill, despite a raining fire, and their faster guns drove the miners to retreat. It was not until daylight, two hours later, that the officers found the body of a miner on the hilltop. His head was almost severed from the body by shot. Blood stains for several yards in the direction of a thicket nearby indicated that others had been wounded. The victim mentioned was later idnetined as Sam Yucoback. He was crippled several years ago by his work in the mines. A bullet shattered a bone in Davis' leg and amputation will be necessary. A report reached the sheriff's office to night that a body of miners numbering 4000 was marching upon this locality. The sheriff promptly placed in the Jail corridor fift-<- repeating rifles for use to prevent a delivery of the fifty miners placed within the" Jail during the past few days. The strike of 15,000 miners in the Irwin fields has been on since last March and has frequently broken out into rioting. COURT RULES PROCTOR AND WIFE OWN STOCK CINCINNATI, July 80— Common Pleas Judge Woodmansee tonight gave an unexpectedly early decision in the case of Baroness yon Kallfuss Procter, who resisted the issuance of an injunc tion against the transfer of 100 shares of stock valued at 140,000, which in junction was obtained by attorneys representing her husband, Percy Proc ter of Cincinnati. Judg.=> Woodmansee dismissed the claim that the stock had been obtained by fraudulent collusion between Joseph De Wyckoff of London, England, and Mrs. Procter, and state* that the stock was given by Percy Procter previous to his marriage to the barnoess as collateral for a mar riage settlement of $40,000 The court holds that the present ownership of the stock is vested in Mr. and Mrs. Procter, and lets tbe injunc tion stand until th<> Procters have come to some agreement out of court, which he recommends before giving his final decision in the matter. Joseph De Wyckoff was given a se vere scoring for his claim to owner ship of eighty shares of the stock, and the claim of a brokerage firm in Lon don for services Is also dismissed. Pending a settlement out of court the case goes over to the October ses sion. Attorneys for the baroness and Mr. Procter have made arrangements for a conference next Thursday, it is said. The decision is regarded as a victory for the baroness. SPANISH-VATICAN AFFAIR AT CRISIS Spain Recalls Ambassador to Holy See, Further Rupturing Strained Relations ROME, July 30—Notwithstanding the extremely strained relations between the Vatican and the Spanish govern ment, the recall of Marquis de Ojeda, the Spanish ambassador to the Vati can, has produced a great sensation in Rome. The Vatican, in a semi-official communication, says the recall of the ambassador proves that the program of Premier Canalejas was not arranged with the hope of accord, but with a desire for fight, and, the communica tion adds, he will have it. Vatican offi cials take the darkest view of the situ ation, not only in Spain but in Portugal as well. They are of the opinion that the extreme parties in both countries, aided by foreign elements, are trying to overthrow the respective monarchies, with the object of uniting the Iberian peninsula under republican rule. In Spain, it is pointed out, there is in ad dition to the French Free-Masonic in fluence, the English Protestant influ ence exercised over the king through the Battenbergs, who have established themselves at the Spanish court, con sequent upon the king's marriage. The hope of the Vatican Is that Don Jaime, the Carlist pretender, who has threatened a revolution, will raise the Carlist flag and vindicate Roman Catholicism. The Vatican attacks Premier Canal ejas, declaring that he premeditated a rupture, as from the beginning of the differences he has on every occasion possible taken two steps backward in the negotiations for one he has taken forward. Indeed, since the negotia tions with holy see with reference to the religious congregations began the premier has taken the first steps an tagonistic to the Vatican. First, the issuance of an unconstitu tional decree favoring a non-Catholic creed, thus violating tht concordat wirh the holy see; second, the repro duction of the decree of 1902 against the congregations which was never in force; third, the publication of the speech from the throne which con tained hostile and threatening expres sions against, the church; fourth, the projected bill prohibiting the institu tion of religious house 3. This attitude of the premier, the Vatican says, shows that the Spanish government had always aimed con trary to that accord which it pretend ed to desire. The holy see repeatedly asked that the government assume a different attitude, pointing out that it was impossible to carry on negotia tions efficaciously -when the second party showed such hostility. Premier Canalejas answered by re calling the Spanish ambassador, and this, says the Vatican, is a clear con fession of his true program, although he has always said that he was obey ing the will of the country. Cardinal Merry del Val, the papal secretary of stats, has t)#?n much af fected by the rupture with Spain. It Is reported that he went to the pope and offered his resignation, which the pontiff refused. DOWNFALL OF CAUNEJAS IS CLERICAL ULTIMATUM Premier Declares He Does Not Fear Civil War MADRID, July 30.—Excitement in the capital and throughout Spain is intense'over the conflict with the Vati can, which came to a climax yesterday with the decision of Premier Canalejas to recall the Spanish ambassador to (Continued on Page Tea) C"T"\T/~IT 17 r'T^UTTTC • I>AII.Y 2c.

NATION'S GUESTS WORRY OFFICIALS Cabinet on Vacation, and No One to Receive President Montt and Gen. Fonseca [Special to The Herald] WASHINGTON, July 30—Official Washington is in a disturbed frame of mind as to just how to welcome Gen. Hermes da Fonseca, president-elect of Brazil, and President Pedro Montt of Chile, who are soon to arrive in this country. Both of these distinguished officials of friendly nations have ob served the most punctilious etiquette in the reception of American diplo mats visiting their respective couun tries and have all the South Amer ican regard for the formalities due ex alted rank or official station. Yet, with President Montt due to ar rive in ew York Angust 2 and Pres ident- lect Fonseca d^e early in Sep tember, practically every prominent official of the United States is away o- a vacation to extend all summer and there is no one in Washington who on a strict basis of official eti quette is entitled :o act as host for the United States to its distinguished guests. President Taft and all the members of his cabinet have deserted tho capital for cooler climes and none shows an ardent desire to return for a round of state dinners and official re ceptions in either August or Septem ber. A ray of hope has lightened the dis mal prospect through the announce ment that President Montt, who is in seriously poor health and is making the trip for his health, will accept no official entertainment and will prob ably make a similar announcement concerning his Washington visit. Still, his rank calls for official recognition of some sort and the question of who shall extend it is proving must both ersome. FOVSECA HARDEST PROBLEM As for General Fonseca, he is in the best of health and in the full pride of his newly acquired high office. He must be received, must, be feted and some-ne has got to come back to the capital and be on the job with the thermometer at 100 when the distin- guir-hed Brazilian arrives. Uust now General Fonseca is in Ger many and Emperor William has in vited him to be hfs guest at the Ger man naval maneuvers off Kiel at the end of August, General Fonseca, it is announced to- has accepted. After a two weeks' stay in Germany, where he will be entertatined by various persons, he expects to go to Paris, returning for the naval maneuvers. Then he will go to England and sail for the United Slxtes. OAKLAND DOCTOR. 85 YEARS OLD, RUN DOWN BY AUTO OAKLAND, July 30.—Dr. A. W.

While crossing the street Dr. Gamble dodged in front of a passing electric car and directly In front of Billeville's machine, which was goint; at a fair rate of speed. Billeville tried to slow down and avert the collision but failed, the automobile hitting the aged phy sician squarely and knocking him sev eral yards away. Aside from the serious nature ot the Injuries, Dr. Hamlin fears that Pr. Gamble's great age will not permit him to survive the shock of the accident.

CENTS ! WENDLING SEIZED IN SAN FRANCISCO APARTMENT HOUSE 'Greatest Man Hunt in Modern Times.' Name Given 11, --000-Mile Search SUSPECT FOUND UNDER SINK Accused Admits Identity but De nies Slaying Little Girl .j, j in Louisville, Ky. ■) (Associated Press) SAN FRANCISCO, July 30.—Dragged from beneath a sink In the wash room of a Third street lodging house in this city, where he had been crouched for twenty-four hours, Joseph A. Wend ling. accused of the murder of little Alma Kellner in Louisville, Ky., and whose twlstinga and turnings have baffled the police for four months, was arrested toda;- by Detectives Burke and Ryan of the local police depart ment. Wendling admitted his identity, but protested his innocence of the crime. A few hours after the arrest Cap tain of Detectives J. P. Carney of Louisville arrived here to learn that his 11,000 mile search for Wendling had been crowned with success, for ft wag the final telegraphed tip from the Kentucky detective that led to the arrest of Wendling. In his relentless pursuit of the supposed murderer, Car ney many times lost the trail, but thn secret of the whereabouts of his quarry always lay unconsciously with Mrs. Cora Muena. a milliner of Hume, Mo., and it was from her home that Car ney flashed the information that led to his arrest here. It seemed the Irony of fate that the only respectable wo man connected with Wendling during his wanderings should have been the unconscious means of betraying him. Mrs. Muena met Wendling at the home of her aunt In Houston, Texas, and before she returned to her home In Hume she was engaged to the dashing young Frenchman, who dazzled th« aunt with tales of his foreign estates and wealth in Prance which would come to him with the death of his aged father. Before Mrs. Muena left Houston she grew to fear Wendling and after her return to Hume she broke the engagement. BEVDS DECOY LETTER When Carney received the clew that Wendling was working for a grocer in Houston he began the long March which led him to every county seat in Texas. When ho reached Houston ho found that Wendling had fled to San Antonio, where he had secured a posi tion on a ranch twenty-two miles from that town. A trip to the ranch proved abortive, as the hunted man had fled, leaving some of hfs effects behind. Here Carney lost the trail and returned to Houston. He sent a decoy letter, ostensibly written by the aunt to Mrs. Muena, asking for the address of Henry Jacquemin, the name assumed by Wendling when he left Louisville. The reply, intercepted by Carney, In formed him that his prey -was in Los Angeles. The detective captain's trip to Los Angeles proving fruitless, he re turned to San Antonio, where he found that Henry Picard, a friend of Wend ling, had received a postal picture card from the fugitive. This communi cation, written In French, was post marked Rio Vista. Abandoning his Texas huntln* ground. Carney Immediately came to this city, where he secured the assist ance of the local detectK-e bureau. Ac companied by Detective Conlin he went to Rio Vista, but their man had flown, leaving behind him, however, his name on the pay roll of a company which was building jetties along the Sacra mento river. Then the trail again be came so cold that Carney determined to visit Mrs. M"*ena a.t her home 1n Hume. He reached there Just in timn to prevent the destruction of a postal which pave the address of Wendling in Vallejo, Cal. Mrs. Muena had de stroyed her other correspondence with her wilom lover and was on thn point of burning the postal when the Louisville police official arrived. HAD BURGLAR'S TOOLS When the address was flashed to San Francisco Detective Burke was at once sent to Vallejo. In the posses sion of Alice Miller, with whom Wend ling had been living, he found b.13 photograph and a complete kit of burglar tools. A further search of thn place led to thr discovery of many articles which had been taken from the residence- of Thomas Saunders, which had been burglarized three times. This was the house formerly occupied by Charles Widemann, for whom Wendling worked as a gardener. Wendling was soon traced to this city, but the detectives were thrown off thn track by a strange double, who left a Bull case In a deserted house In tha North Beach foreign quarter The de:ith by his own hand of thi=i suspect two days ago again left the detectives without the scent, but they caught It again when Captain of De tectives Wall received a tip Thursday night that the fugitive was In a Third street lodging house. Tha number proved i vacant lot. Next door, how ever, was a lodging house frequented by laboring men Mrs. Mary Moriarlty. the owner of the house, declared that, a man answering Wendllng's descrip tion had been there but had left a few days before. The detectives were still suspicious, and after watching the house for twenty-four rours deter mined this morning to make a search. Their efforts were rewarded by the dis covery of Wendling crouched beneath the sink of a wash room Dragged forth, he did not make the slightest re sistance, and when the bullet wound in his hand and the tattooed ship on his arm were exposed by his captors, he readily admitted his Identity. PROTESTS INNOCENTF In the arrival of the detectives with Wendling at the city prison Chief Mar tin and District Attorney Fiokert were summoned. With the detectives, th 6»« two officials remained closeted for an hour with the prisoner. He protested his innocence of the Kellner murder, declaring that he knsw nothing of It until he read of the find ing of the body. Wendling maintained that he had adopted the came of his (Continued ou rage Twoj.
