jthe case in terms of its social re
actions. The second is the as

competently prepared for life at
every point except the one which
has to do with the conduct of
• their love life. And the third,
whch is the most pressing, as
• the need of establishing suitable
• restraints and penalties to meet
"' similar offenses in the future.
It is not alone in expressed
.public opinon that the new atti
tude toward such irregularities
is demonstrated. In the sort of
men chosen for the jury, in the
court's interpretation of the law,
and especially in the charge to the
jury, there is a notable absence
of the disposition of men mutu
ally to condone offenses peculiar
to themselves as men. Here in
the west it is certain that a suffi

Upon the second I touched
yesterday; it is the extraordi

edge of the principles of human
conduct, shown by the parties to
the case.
They knew, of course, that
what they did was called
wrong, "wicked," but they did
not know it to the degree which
prevented them from doing it, as
they would have been prevented
by knowledge from exposing
themselves to smallpox or the
plague. And yet the social conse-

Gambling Charge—
Quits Canada
'COATXCOK, Que., Sept. 6.—One year
may elapse before it is legally deter
mined whether Harry K. Thaw, the
fugitive from the Matteawan asylum
for the criminal insane is to be de
ported from Canada or is to receive
the protection of its laws. Assurance
to this effect was given to Thaw to
day by his counsel.
Thaw is certain that he has won a
long delay, and immediately after

the journey to Montreal, where he
must be produced In the supreme court

It had been supposed that the at
torneys who obtained the writ had
withdrawn from the case, seeing noth
ing but defeat, but their retreat was
only a masterly piece of strategy by
which the doors may have been opened
for a test of the constitutionality of
the immigration law governing de
Complications have been added to
the general aspect of the Thaw case
by the events subsequent to the ar
rest of William Travers Jerome, for
mer district attorney of New York,
on a charge of gambling. Jerome
was to have been arraigned before
Magistrate McKee at 9:30 o'clock this
morning, but Hector Verretti, acting
for the New York lawyer, had the
hearing postponed for a week. Mean
time Jerome left Canada, going to
Nortons Mills, Vt. In a sense Jerome
thus made of rflmself a fugitive from
justice, reversing the position of
Thaw, who is a fugitive in Canada.
Jerome, if convicted, would have to
go to Jail, as there is no fine under
the gambling law.
Influence has been brought to bear
upon Crown Prosecutor A. C. Hanson
to have the charge agalsst Jerome,
who is at liberty on $500 ball,
dropped. The crown prosecutor re
fused to do this.
"I received a great number of com
plaints about the open gambling of
Mr. Jerome, and I consider it my
duty to push this case against him,"
said the prosecutor. "He was setting
a bad example for the children of
this community by gaming in public
for money. Every one could see bim
and his companions playing."
