Mc- Caski'i, chief of the secret service police of the province of Quebec, ar rived here and took charge of the force of agents formed to guard .a«sdrmt trouble tomorrow when Thaw Is produced in court. The object of < the guards is to prevent Thaw from being forcibly seized and to keep down disturbances in the courtroom. J. N. Greenshield came here from Montreal and held a conference this afternoon with the other Thaw law- Jers to map out a definite course of action. While former District Attorney William Tfavers'Jerome Of New York V, was In Quebec today conferring with the ' provincial authorities In connec tion with a new move to. deport Harry .K. Thaw. Thaw wrote rtnothcr ques tion and answer Interview in his cell. In it he attacked. Jerome for his activity in the case. ,If the writ of habeas corpus ob tained by Constable Boudreau of Coatlcook Is upheld by Judge Hutch inson tomorrow, the Thaw legal bat tery is ready with an appeal to stay action. Lawyers representing Thc.w today were trying to Induce Boudreau to withdraw his writ. Boudreau was threatened with suit for false arrest unless he ■ drops the habeas corpus proceedings against Thaw. THAW THREATENS CONSTABLE Thaw personally sent word to the constable that he would push any claims he might have against Boudren.u If the habeas corpus pro ceedings were not dropped. The writ Is Teturnahle tomorrow before Justice Hutehfr.son. Thaw must be produced In court then, unless a new legal move intervenes. Jerome refused to say anything - about his mission to Quebec, although it was reported that his trip Involves k fresh, appeal to the governor of the province' to;-quash the commitment upon detaining Thaw in the St. Fran cis Ja'ii.. Here is part of Thaw's interview, all ef which, Including the questions and ar.6wers.. he wrote himself: STINGS IN ANSWERS Q- —You .have heard of the new habeas corpus?' ' 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.?-. Harry—And of the Benevolent Pro tective association. Q.—You know What the Benevolent Protective association is called, don't you? Harry—Yes, all the newspapers called tt the white slave trust. Some of the bylaws bt the association were published: Among other things was a provision that "our members be cause of ;tho. 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.\t Mr. Jerome represented that trust wheri •orr.e Newark. N. J.. or Philadelphia dive koeper 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. l\*VNEr BORROWED $80,000 Q—Did. n>f .-y Harry—Soon as he was free Mr. Preuaser borrowed fSO.O'.O. I believe when the alienists were examining Mr Preusser he was the sanest, smart est man In : .the courtroom. Q. —You admitted the eminence of g Tjoetor Hlrsch? > ' Harry—He has a ■[ reputation, but * 'lately he published his magnum opos t to prove Moses was a paranoiac; also I St. Paul. ; . - Q. —I recollect he even claimed the f Savior was % paranoiac? Harry—yes. The first alienists in the United States swore I was sane. They were Adolf Meyer of Johns Hopkins university; William* White, chief pschlatrlst of the government; Charles Mills of the University of Pennsylvania and Professor Peterson of Columbia university. ; Q. —Have each of the 12 alienists who testified you sane the same emi nence as Jerome* two best? Harry—Any real alienist will as sure you that each ia equal or su perior to McDonald and Hirsoh. q.—What opinion did Doctor Putzel glVf ? Harry—With David McLure and Judge Allen. Putzel. without qualifi cation, declared nt sane. JUDGE PARKER SEES SUCCESS FOR THAW MONTREAL <sue.. Sept. I.—Noted members of the bar who are gather ing in convention There 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 return of Thaw to the state of N*w York. ' "The maw," he said, "was never convicted of a crime, and therefore It v-;is plain he was not a criminal, but he was only an escaped ward of the i state and I believe that the question }'' purely of administration and not a gal question at all.'' 1 1 4 Judge Parker was ,of the opinion |_*liat the present tangle would have f in the same manner if Thaw bad escaped from Canada into the , United States Instead of Tic*, versa, PART TWO. Four Teams Tied at Call of Rest in Motor Cycle Race Serious Accident to Paul Lambert of Cleveland Puts His Team Out of the Race NEW YORK, Sept. I.—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- j ginning at 10 a. m., but because of j 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 averaged only about 25 miles an hour against an average around "0 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 went down. St. Ives escaped unhurt and resumed riding. Lambert's machine fell on him. breaking several fingers, 1 bruising him about the head and body j • and causing internal injuries. The four leading teams when a rest was called were: Chappelle. St. Ives, ', Hagan: Costello, Mercier, Cox; Kess- } ler. Ohne, Sperl, and Vedith, Sayre, j Cronln. WOMEN FAINT AT PUBLIC SHAMBLES Annual Cattle Slaughtering Competition Now Inves tigated by Society CHICAGO.- Rep: 1 —Laws were be ing sought by Hugo Krause, secre tary of tlte Antl-Cruelty society, to day, in an-efTort to prosecute the pro moters of a public butchering in For est park, a suburK last night. Six thousand persons, more than half of them women and nearly one-third of them children under 12. last night eat aorund a big arena 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 aJ! an "educational exhibition of mod er:. n.ethods of dressing beef." Phil Murphy, for 12 years champion steer dr<:s*er of the world, win the first prize by killing, skinning and dress ing a steer in four minutes. he could not imagine where the Amer ican courts would have come in in auch a case. ■ The .-ourts of the UnltC'l States do rot decide whether a man is a per son to admit to the < ountry 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 sanity. "He was never convicted Jn New York state, though they now have a hold on him. ai> England would have had. 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 brtef 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. "Kven In England," he continued, "there would be considerable delay in a case of this sort, but in England there would have been far less chance of appealing first, a thing which Is much easier in the United States and Canada, and therefore causes much more delay." . . -.- - : THE San Francisco CALL LABOR HOSTS OBSERVE DAY IN TWIN CELEBRATIONS MARKING UNIONS' PROGRESS Labor takes its annual holiday today; at home the implements of building become the playthings of the child.
