Body of Mary Crittenden Scott
'•\u25a0 '•\u25a0/-: Found in Tnmk Sunk
r-V in Lake
Young Russian Taken Into Cus«
tody on Suspicion of Being
OMO, I tab', June 10.— The tcr
; ribly mutilated body of a woman,
believed to be that of Mrs. N.
H. Castle, who was Mary Crittcndcn
Scott of San Francisco, Cal., was
found in a trunk today submerged in
a lake near the village of Moltrasio.
Wrapped about the body was a
piece of cloth which bore the initials
""G. W and from letters found in
the trunk, written in English, it ap
pears that the woman in 1906 lived in
Thirty-fourth street. New York city.
Arrest of Russian
The police, basing their opinion on
•wounds on the head, evidently; made
' by a btant instrument, believe that the
Viornan was murdered, and have taken
; irito" custody a Russian named Con
stantino Ispolaloff, 50 years old, whom
they suspect of having some knowl
edge of the. crime.
Told of Marriage
„\u25a0-\u25a0 \u25a0\u25a0' Several persons who had known the
\u25a0 tvowan in life and viewed her body
today declared that she had told them
;>fcre had been married to Porter Charl
. ton. the soa of an American naval of
'fic^T.-' Charlton is described as being
23 years old, and is said once to have
been -a student at the University of
. Periruylvania. The woman apparently
: vwas about 35 years old.
\u25a0 ':;*V\'hen the body was found.it was
recalled that recently a young couple
the lake. Three days ago they disap
:'-.had.occupied a villa on the shore. of
*-p\ear£d, and have not since been seen
..{ by the people of the neighborhood. The
Vvop'ian spoke English. Her companion
\u25a0.attempted French, but obviously it was
; ' not his native tongue.
Theory of Police
It. is said that the police believe that
the death of Mrs. Castle is in no way
connected with the mystery surround
jng.ihe finding last April of the body
*>t Mi?s E?tella Reid of New York on
the beach near Naples, where it had
beer? washed ashore from the bay. No
\u25a0 reason for such a suspicion is appar
ent. The cause of Miss Reid"s death
\u25a0has never been explained.
Spectacular Career
NEW YORK, June 3 0. — Mary Scott
Castle was an emotional woman with a
spectacular career. She, startled New
York August Z la&t by shooting Wil
liam B. Craig, a New York lawyer,
;_ formerly of San Francisco, as he
stood, in "Peacock alley" at the "Wal
dorf Astoria.' But her revolver was
.;- pathetically small, the bullet was de-
Jfpcted' by a fountain pen in Craig's
.pocket, and he was uninjured.
'-.Mrs.. Castle, trembling and hysteri
fcali'. Was taken to a police station,
• Vfh-er.e, between sobs, she s>aid that she
.had not meant to kill Craig, but that
• .he-had done her a. great wrong. Craig,
: t.hoiigh inclined to reticence, said the
\u0084.. *x-om£ti was in love "and had pursued
•. : htrai- lie is married and lives" in New
'A'-or.k, but could not be found tonight.
• .Case Was Dismissed
'• ilrs-". Castle was . subsequently re
' leased.' under $3,000 ball, furnished by
:licr. : brother. Captain Henry Harrison
« Scott, 1 t T - S. A., who hurried hither from
; the south when apprised of his sister's
•plight- The case never came to trial
and aixs. Castle was discharged in Sep
tember after Craig had appeared before
. the grand Jury and declined to press the
Thereafter Mrs. Castle dropped from
public view until dispatches from the
" west told of the granting of a decree
of divorce at Nome, Alaska, to her hus
bfcnd; Neville H. Castle, a San Francisco
•• lawyer.
Brief Stage Experience
\ -.Mrs. Castle was a pretty woman, and
' a brief 'stage career in New York was
interspersed in her life. She was 37
, ' years old. " #
N/o^ confirmation has ever been ob
tained in this country of the reported
. marriage of* Mrs. Castle to young
Charlton. There were rumors that a
.-^courMe ansv.ering their description had
J^Vreen married In Philadelphia last
spring, but young Charlton, who T was
afterward in New York, issued this

Commissioner of Immigration
Puts Blame for Accusations
on Orientals ' ' •
Says There Is No Law by Which
He Can Refuse the Hindus
i Admission Here
Hart IT. North, United States com
missioner of immigration at this port,
says that he is the* victim of Chinese
persecution. He . has returned from
Washington, where he went/in a hurry
immediately after Immigration In
spector Ainsworth Hied charges against
him. He still refuses to "disc.uss the
Ainsworth charges, but, intimates that
they would not; have been' tiled if he,
North, had not so strictly enforced the
Chinese exclusion \u25a0" act. .In fact, he
credits the Chinese with responsibility
for all his troubles.
His Lips Are Sealed
"Everything is in a good deal of a
muddle just now," he said yesterday,
"and for the time being my lips are
sealed. When I am at liberty to talk I
can clear up everything.
"I can, however, say this much. All
my troubles date from the transfer of
the station to Angel island. Our pres
ent location makes,, it possible for me
to enforce the. Chinese exclusion. act in
a way that was not possible before.
Coaching Is now practically impossible,
and I have so ordered the handling of
Chinese that there can be no collusion
on the part of any subordinate official
in the immigration service. Tho Chinese
have made up their minds to get my
scalp, and when the time comes to cx
: pose the whole matter it will be seen
that they have. inspired all the trouble
that has been made for me. If the Chi
" nese could run the immigration bureau
| to suit their ideas there would have
been no criticism of niy office in the
matter of- landing Hindus. ". The Chinese
are behind it all, and those who are
, agitating against the landing -of Hindus
are being use/i, innocently perhaps, by
the Chinese Who want to embarrass me
because lam enforcing the law." -. •
. Congressman Hayes,- however, does
not, think that North has been\enforc
ing the exclusion law, and before con
gress the other day. declared that the
; law was being violated at this port and
. asked that the ofljcers'of theimmigra
! tibn bureau be "directed to see "that the
i plain mandate of the law is carried
\ out."
I Permitted to. Land .
t Congressman Hayes called attention
' to the, fact that from Deccnibcrr 1908, to
| March 31 v 1910, 293 "aliens, mbstly ori
entals "who were certified -by the ex
, amining surgeons to have b'een"; afflicted
with trachoma, >ere p'errnitted to land
in San Francisco notwithstanding the
plain mandate of -the statute." '
"It seems to .me,", the .'congressman
: continued, "that this •- is -*in open - de-
I fiance of the statutes of the United
States." . . -,
And. while North is enforcing, the
; Chinese exclusion act so - vigorously
' that the Chinese are plotting his down
fall, and while Representative .Hayes
j is- telling congress that the exclusion
act is not being enforced at all, 'the
i Hindus are coming in a steady stream,
. and most of them, in spite of the fact
i that each' of them is liable, to -become
- a public charge, are allowed to land.
North stated his position yesterday
• on the Hindu question, and A. E. Yoell
of the Asiatic exclusion league devoted
' an hour or two" to stating what, he
' thought of North's statement.
i Attitude Unchanged
Oii the Hindu question North had
this to say:
! "My personal attitude, after my visit
to Washington, is no different from my
' attitude throughout this discussion. I
stand by my previous statement, that
( no government official has -a right to
refuse entrance to this country to any
\u25a0 man entitled under the law to land.
The Hindus, are not [ governed' by an
i exclusion law, such as we have re
specting Chinese, Japanese /: and Ko
reans. They v have ; the same legal
1^ standing as any European immigrant,
and I can not treat them otherwise. V,
"Thisjs not a- dictatorship, in which
i any man can impose illegal restric
, tions on any other man. .While 'the
l laws remain: as they are; these, people
i must be allowed to enter. - The: facts
• have been . greatly . misrepresented, to
• the public and to the press^ 7 As for the
' other ports on the Paci fic, I have •no
'\u25a0 lnjformation as to whether or not. they.
are excluding all Hindus.. We are'en
\ deavoring to enforce;the- law. strictly,
t ' and no. Hindu wili be allowed to enter
I 'whocan not show that he is not likely
- "to become a public ; charge,' and who
5 'cannot pass the -required physical ex
• amination. It is possible that, at the
V other ports they have a different class
1 of Hindus to deal with. v
', '\u25a0;. "Until the people .of i Calif 'of nia* anil

ing four submarine torpedo* boats, to
cost $2,000,000, live submarines to cost
$2,500,000 and six torpedo boat destroy
ers to cost $750,000 ; each. : N.

battleship may be built by one con
tractor and that one of the battleships
must be constructed in a government
navy; yard was agreed": to by. a vote of

the sentiment of the days af chiv
alry and all the formality of the

infernal masculine by tearing; mto

fight, the battle taking- place rrr a. dimly
lighted barn. A greater impetus was
gh-en the swinging- arms of the youths
by their common, knowledge that the
girl in the case, Miss WHtrude Van
Horn, a pretty high school student,
knew of the fight and knew also- that
it was taking- place on. her account.

cause of the fight. Byrnes denies
that the girl had anything- to do with

unpleasant remark. Maghetti, her
avowed champion immediately took is

older than his rival. Is considerably
Steal Into Barn
At the appointed time last night the
guests, seconds and fighters crawled
through the Tan Horn fence and
stealthily made their way to the barn.
In some way or the other a whisper
of the impending fight came to the ears
of the girl and this the fighters knew.
Amid whispered encouragements
from their supporters. Byrnes and
Maghetti entered the ring, both of
them stripped to the waist. They were
In the pink of condition, and as they
donned the seven ounce gloves their
supporters, gathered around the dimly
lighted barn, scarcely could restrain
themselves from cheering. There w«»
a whispered "L*t *er go" and the two
lads smashed Into each other.
Maghetti, with the recollection • of
the insult to his lady love, rushed in
like a demon; Byrnes with the bitter
knowledge of having been told to leave
the girl's house fought back.
For the first two rounds the boys
gave and took with absolute reckless
ness. Neither would waste time in
clinching: each sought a knockout.
They fought fast and hard and so ex
citing did the battle become that de

the whisperings of the spectators broke
into a murmur of applause. /
The girl, heart sick and worried,
hearing the sound flew to her mother.
Police Go Wrong
"We must stop that fight some, way."
she pleaded. "I am the cause of It and •
— and — the boys hate each other!'*
The mother, learning the cause of
the trouble- from her daughter and
fearing that t the lads would Injure one
another in their hatred, telephoned to
Constable George Agnew. telling him
of the fight and asking him to stop it.
Owing to a misunderstanding, how
ever, the police could not fmd the barn
in question and in the meantime the
fight went on.
In the third' round Byrnes' superior
weight began to tell. He put a right '
to Maghettl'3 Jaw. sending him down
to his knees. As he rose. Byrnes sent
in right and left to the body. He fol
lowed this up by driving Maghetti to
the ropes, but the latter fought gamely,
taking his punishment with a determi
nation which nothing seemed to daunt.
