Harry—He or his man will have to convince the court he Is a friend of mine !n order to have any standing in court. Q- —That -will be a difficult job for the learned counsel for the chicken trust?

Among other things was a provision that "our members be cause of the nature of their business found it difficult to enter other char itable or fraternal societies, Join to gether for mutual benefit." or words to that effect. I think th.it Mr. Jerome represented that trust wheri Borne Newark. N. J.. or Philadelphia dive keeper was arrested for ex changing poor women. Jerome had only one good alienist when I was tried. That was Dlefendorff. Doctor McDonald was clever, but he swore Mr. Preusser was Insane In 1905 from an Incurable mental disease and could never recover his reason. IVSAXEf BORROWED «SO,OOO Q—Did he? Harry—Soon as he was free Mr. Preusser borrowed $80,000. 1 believe when the alienists were examining *fr Preusser he was the sanest, smart est man In the courtroom.

I.—Noted members of trie bar.who are gather ing in convention . here were very careful today in expressing opinions on the Thaw case. Judge Alton B. -Parker, however, said he could not see, how the judici ary of New York-state could demand the retiirn of Thaw' to the state of New York. "The man," he said, "was never convteted of a Crime, and therefore It was plain he was not a criminal, but he was only an escaped-ward of the e'ate and I believe tfcat the question :* purely of administration and not a If gal question .at all."* " 4 Judge Parker was, of the opinion _4hat th» present tangle would have ""resulted in tbe same, manner If Thaw bad escaped -from Canada, Into the tJnited States Instead of rice versa, PART TWO. Four Teams Tied at Call of Rest in Motor Cycle Race Serious Accident to Paul Lambert oi Cleveland Puts His Team Out of the Race NEW YORK, Sept. 1. —Four teams were tied this morning when a rest was taken In the 24 hour motorcycle grind at Brighton Beach. At that time 330 miles had been traveled. The schedule called for a rest be ginning at 10 a. m., but because of the slippery condition of the track from heavy morning dew, the halt was called earlier. For nearly an hour before the race was called the riders chugged along In the "flat" and averag-ed only about 25 miles an hour against an average around TO miles on the saucer. The serious accident. which • befell Paul Lambert of Cleveland put his team out of the race.' Lambert's' ma chine -skidded and he crashed Into Henry St. Ives. Both riders w.ent down. -St. Ives escaped unhurt and resumed riding.

WOMEN FAINT AT PUBLIC SHAMBLES Annual Cattle Slaughtering Competition Now Inves tigated by Society CHICAGO.- Sept I—Laws we're be ing sought by Hugo Krause, secre tary of tile Antl-Cruelty society, to day. In an-effort to prosecute the pro moters of a public butchering in For est park, a suburl*. last night. Six thousand persons, more than half of them women and nearly one-third of them children under 12, last night sat norund a big erena and watched the killing of six steers. Several women fainted and all of the children screamed. The fete was the annual cattle slaughtering competition, advertised as" an "educational exhibition of mod ern n.ethods of dressing beef." Phil Mtfrphy, for 12 years champion steer dresuer of the world, .won the first prize by killing, skinning and dress ing a steer In -four minutes. he could not imagine where the Amer ican courts wotfld have come In In such a case, "The courts of the United States do r.ot decide whether a man Is a per son to admit to the country or not. That question Is decided-by the ad ministration and from their decision there is no appeal, the man not being an American citizen." On the supposition that Thaw had been tried In England and pleaded In sanity Judge Parker held that Thaw would have first been convicted and, then Judged as to Banlty. "He was never convicted In New York state, though they now have a hold on hlin, ac England .would have hsd. I agree with Lord Haldane, who says that the .case as It now stands Is a formidable one." Lord Haldane previously to this had given a brief statement about the Thaw case, in which he said that It was difficult for any one to give an opinion in the matter on hand as the case was so terribly involved. "Even In ICngland," he continued, "there would be considerable delay In a case of this sort, but in England there would have be n far less chance of appealing first, a thing which is much easier In the United States and Canada, and therefore causes much more delay." . .
