Federal Judge (irants Petition for
Concord, X. H.. April 14. ? Harry
: Kendall Thaw's petition for a writ of
- habeas corpus was granted by Judge
L Edgar Aldrich, of the Cnited States
- District court to-day. The court said.

taking the ground that it would be
more appropriate for this to be pass.
ed upon by the Supreme Court.
The result of the decision is that
Thaw's guardianship and condition
' will be unchanged for the present,
[ but that his petition for a writ of
habeas corpus will go to the highest
? court in the land, with a decision of
[ the lower court in his favor.
The decision discusses exhaustive
ly the various phases of the case pre|
sented in the United States court,
Insanity and Extradition.
' "My conclusion is that constitu.
tional right of tradition for crime
- does not reasonably apply to such a
situation as this, where the right ol
control by the demanding States re>
sides in a degree of custody based
on insanity, and where its papers upon
their face negative the idea of per?
sonal criminal responsibility. It is
further thought that it would involve
forced or fictional reasoning to make
a flight of the character of the one
in question the kind of a flight contemplated
by the constitution as a
basis for extradition.
"It results that an order will be
made sustaining the writ and thai
the petitioner be discharged from the
extradition process under which he
was held at the time his condition foi
habeas corpus was brought upon constitutional
"It has been understood from the
beginning that, whichever way this
case was decided b: lie, it would be
, taken to the Supreme Court. Therefore,
no formal order will be made
either sustaining the writ or discharging
the prisoner until the aggrieved
party has had an opportuni
ty to perfect its appeal."
Escaped Last December.
When Thaw entered New Hamp
shire last September after deportation
from Canada he was arrested
His attorneys petitioned foF a wril
of habeas corpus, this acting as a
stay to extradition granted by Gover'
Later Thaw applied for bail on the
grounds that conspiracy to escape
from Matteawan, the alleged offence
on which extradition proceedings
were based, was bailable. Counsel
for New York State opposed the mo
tion, alleging Thaw's mental condition
would make his freedom a menace.
Reciting facts as to Thaw's petition
for bail and the report of the
commission upon his mental condition,
the court says:
"I have no doubt of the right ol
the court to grant bail under the circumstances
of this case, but as the
question is an interlocutory one, oi
which the petitioner has the right tc
avail himself at any time and
at any stage of the proceedings,
and as the case is about to gc
out of the control of this court and
into the Supreme Court, and as Supreme
Court Rule 34 has an important
and, perhaps a controllable bearing
upon the question, I am disposed
to leave the motion for bail undetermined
Thinks Thaw Not Dangerous.
The court says the report of the
commission, supplemented by his own
r?hc;prvation at the several hearings,
satisfied him that any supposed danger
to the community through Thaw's
liberty was so remote as not to warrant
his being deprived of bail upon
"I am not at all certain that I am
not denying a plain right and doing
the petitioner an injustice by leaving
this question undecided," he says.
Thaw's case the court finds to be
1 that of a person sought to be extrai
dited under the constitution because
l he had fled from guardianship cusr
tody based upon the verdict of a jurv
that he'was insane.
"The case is a novel one," com
ments the court, "and requires the
utmost caution as the power of ex

HOW UNCLE SAM PAYS,
a borate System Used in Distribut
ing Money to Government Clerks. 3
Uncle Sam has 36,289 employees
his -pay roll in the District of Conbia.
He pays them on the 16th
d the last day of every month, his
nual pay roll totalling $41,139,3,
according to the Washington
Government pay days in Washingl
are important dates, both to the
ployees and to the merchants and
lers among whom the pay is disbuted.
Uncle Sam's paymaster in each dertment
is known as the disbursing
rk or officer. This person is always
pular. When the disbursing clerk
?ins preparation to "pay off," the
>t thing he does is to draw a check
' the amount needed and takes it
the treasury department to have it
>hed. The check is honored because
has been previously arranged for
what is termed an accountable

id of the department. Such war- i

When the disbursing clerk has prored
the money, the next thing is to

the biggest end of the work, but a
tie machine called the addressoiph
is now used in most all the dertments
to lighten the task. In the
