I Quebec Aug 2Dr Crippen and
e Miss Lenevc the two prisoners who
have fooused the eyes of the world
on this old French city on the Si
F 4 Lawrence slept last night the sleep
of complete exhaustion following the
t ordeal of the preceding hours
Crlppon and the girl now face two
L weeks or more of monotonous wait
c ing There will be no more legal pro
ceedings In the case until August 8th
r when they will have another purely
I formal appearance In court to give
them a last opportunity of demanding
a writ of habeas corpus or any other
legal relief to which they may feel
Unless they change their express
ed Intention neither will apply for
wrts or interfere In any way with
the methods adopted by the police to
get them back to England
So far as the Province of Quebec
Is concerned legal proceedings are
practically closed The olllclal docu
ments regarding the arrest of the
couple and their interrogation by
Judges LaD 1Ier and Angers of the
court of special sessions were for
warded last night to Ottawa for the
signature of the governorgeneral
The color Is beginning to return to
Miss Lenoves cheeks and this morn
ing the matron at the Jail hospital said
she looked a trifle less forlorn than
when she was taken there yesterday
afternoon from the house of Chief of
Detectives McCarthy Miss Lcncvc
who left the Montrose in garments
loaned to her by the ships stewardess
was today supplied with a neatwhite
dress which added to the improve
ment in her appearance
Crippen is Silent
Crippen taciturn and seeming to a
considerable extent to have cover
ed his composure has volunteered
nothing since his arraignment yes
terday which might help the police In
soiling the mystery surrounding the
disappearance of hs wife i
The detectives would like to gather
from the accused some unusual evi
dence but unless some present signs
fall they will receive no help in this
line from DrCrippen I
k Crlppon Is ho fool said Inspector
DQw and no one questions his opiu
1tllt Accordingly 0 It is generally believ
ed that the police are renting their
hopes on MiSS Lonevp If she dqcs
not possess the key to the mystery j
hey think she can at least aid them i
lalerlally Inn reconstruction the j
circumstances leading up to the dis
appearance of Bello Elmore t is I
known that Mrs CrIppen was joa i
ous of her husbands typist and the j
police have no doubt that Miss Le
neve was aware of this Jealousy
No Third Degree
They will not use any third de
gree methods in interviewing Miss
Leneve but more subtle Influence al
ready is at work The girl prisoner
Is being treated wtih the greatest
consideration She showed the ef
fect of this today appearing to he
much better In body and in mind I
than on yesterday when following
duo collapse after her arrest she was I
considered too ill to appear in court
Miss Leneve has never been placed I
In a cell here She has been kept I
In the room of one of the women em
ployes of the provlnceial jail and has I
been allowed occasional outdoor ex
ercise Inspector Dew has repeatedly I
said that he believed the girl was In
nocent of any knowledge of wrong
doing Sho has been visited by WOOl
en who have treated her most kind
r ly
At the same time Miss Leneve is
being bombarded with cablegrams
from members of her family In Lon
ilon urging her to tell all she knows j
The pressure of friendliness is being I
OKcrted on her while there Is no
prospect that she will come In contact
with Dr Crippen or even see him for I
a long time I
The purpose In all this Is obvious
when It is considered that so far as j
js generally known Scotland Yard has
l been unable to identify the dlsinem j
bored body found In the cellar of the
Crippen home in London The police t
ense Is believed not to be complete j
Even the unemotional Dew the j
typical English detective has been i
pffected by Miss Leneves plight I
I am sorry for her he said to
day I dont believe she knew any I
tblng about the crime
t While the Canadian and English
f laws strictly prohibit any attempt to j
obtain a confession especially the I
third degree It Is said tho girl has I
expressed a desire to make revela j
Hona The police say they will ac i
pther statement after she had
been warned that anything she said I
might be used against her at her I
Thus far In moments of her ox
I fcrno shock and weakness the po i

Crippen today was permitted to re I

The police have denied nil requests i
to soe and speak with the prisoner

R ers authorized the prison governor I
Joseph Morcn to visit Crippen and 1

II he would make a public atato

Jm8 that anything Crippen might

He Places Col George
I Harvey in the Famous
Ananias Club
Now York Aug 2Colonci RoOf
volt yesterday added another distin
guished member to the Ananias club
In the person of Colonel Gcorgp Har
vey editor of the North American Re
The Initiation took place In the of
fice of the Outlook of which Colonel
Roosevelt is contributing editor and
the new member while not actually
present was put through with much
vim and considerable bounce
While Colonel Roosevelt did not use
tho shorter and uglier word In con
nection with Colonel Harvey his lan
guage was distinctly blunt and plain
The reopening of the club which
was close just prior to Mr Roose
velts departure for Africa was
brought about through an article In
the August number of the North
American Review entitled Is Roose
velt an Asrot or a Liability and
which was signed The Editors In
a paragraph at the top of page 151
this sentence occurs But recently
i Roosevelt the man declared that If a
national election were to bo held next
November he undoubtedly would be
I the Republican candidate and would
I win
When Colonel Roosevelt saw this
I his eyes snapped and his teeth clicked
L ns he almost shouted
I That Is simply a falsehood 1
have never said anything like that
I It was pointed out to Colonel Roose
velt that Colonel Harvey evidently
I meant to cOnvey the Impression that
he could be forced into accepting the
i nomination By that time Colonel
Roosevelt appeared extremely angry
I and again repeating that he had
never made the statement attributed
to him made a rush for the waiting
I elevator
I New York Aug 2 It may be un
seemly for me to engage with Mr
Roosevelt In a controversy Involving
a question of veracity That which I
wrote of course Is true said Colonel

of the crime for which he will JQ
It is believed here by tho detect
ives who have assisted the chase
and arrest of Wcndling that Carne
will take extraordinary precautions
to guard his prisoner after he reaches
the boundary of Kentucky as It is re
ported that the feeling thoc runs
high against the accused man
Notwithstanding his cheerful air
Wendllng has been guarded closely
in his cell for fear that he might at
tempt suicide
Wendllng before his departure wag
