Suffragets But Not in the
Militant Branch.
NFW YORK. Aug. 30. Viscount
Ilaldane, the tlrst lord high chancel
lor of Great II ni tain to leave his coun
try since Cardinal Wolsey went to
France four hundred years ago, ar
rived here Friday on the steamship
Lusitania for a flying visit of live days
in this country and Canada.
The lord high chancellor, whose
position in England corresponds to
that of chief justice of the supremo
court of the United States, Is here
as a guest of the American liar as
sociation before which ho will deliver
an address at its annual meeting at
Montreal next Monday. Friday night
he was entertained at a dinner given
in behalf of the association by C. A.
Severance of St. Paul. His intinerary
includes visits to West Point and Al
bany. Previously warned that ho might
expect to be interviewed by American
newspapermen on his arrival In New
York, the chancellor smilingly greeted
a delegation of them who boarded the
Lusitania at Quarantine and submit
ted to another interview when he
reached the hotel where he is mak
ing his headquarters in this city.
Lord Ilaldane freely discussed
many questions of tho day, declared
that he was in favor of woman suf
frage, prophesied that a millinenium
of peace was not far off said the rela
tions between Germany and England
were never more cordial, praised the
intellectual growth of the United
States, and predicted that home rule
for Ireland would be an accomplish
ed fact.
With a merry twinkle in his blue
eyes, the lord high chancellor Joked
and quipped with his interviewers be
tween serious remarks and conceded
the American custom of interviewing
distinguished visitors was "deliglfl
fully progressive."
.Lord Ilaldane chuckled when the
question cf women suffrage was
brought up. "Yes, I am a suffragist",
he said, "but I do not approve of the
militant suffraget. You are fortunate
to have no militant suffragets in this
country and I sincerely hope the mili
tant idea will not gain a foothold
here. The methods of the English
suffragets have delayed equal suf
frage for years".

AMERICA
Lind is Still at Vera Cruz While
Mexican Government Has
Made No More Proposals to
United States.
MEXICO CITY, Aug. P.O. The
failure of John land, personal repre
sentative of Pres. Wilson, to return
to the capital from Vera Cruz is
taken here to indicate that Washing
ton and Mexico are agreed oh one
thing at least, namely, that there Is
no good to be accomplished by the
trip. Mr. Lind is still in Vera Cruz,
awaiting instructions. The Mexican
government has made no further pro
posal or concession to the United
States. It is considered here that
the next move must be made by
Washington.
Officials hero Friday viewed the
situation more brightly because of
the notation of a 12,000,000 peso loan,
which was taken by three local banks,
the National, the Rank of London
and Mexico, and the lianeo de Com
mercio y Industria.
The exodus of Americans from tho
capital on account of Pres. Wilson's
warning to them to leave the country
was greater Friday than on Thursday,
but not so great as had been antici
pated, since many Americans took the
attitude that there was no reason to
get out unless intervention was a
certainty.
Doubt Judgment.
Many persons appeared inclined to
doubt the judgment of the admini
stration for the statement that the
lighting would become sharper as a
result of the cutting off the supplies
of ammunition. These persons seem
ed to believe that the increased ditli
culty in both sides in obtaining am
munition would result in less active
operations and therefore reduce the
danger to Americans.
Consul Gen. Shanklin's oifice again
Friday was besieged by anxious Amer
icans, the majority of whom sought
information regarding the president's
warning. A large number of them
however availed themselves of the op
portunity to secure from the consul
general transportation to the United
States.

No iris.
KAN FRANCISCO, Aug. CO. The
trial of F. Drew Camlnetti rolled suf
liciently forward Friday. The wit
nesses and the evidence of the
government were with few exceptions
identically the same, as in the case of
Maury I.Diggs, convicted of violating
the Mann white slave law.
Marsha Warrington had the stand
for the greater part of the day and
her testimony went to show that
Caminetti was guilty of assisting in
transporting her and Lola Norris from
Sacramento to Reno.
The efforts ot the defense was to,
prove that Caminetti had played a
passive part. One passage of the
cross-examination is representative of
its whole trend.
"At the meeting between Diggs,
Caminetti, Miss Norris and yourself
on the Saturday before you left for
Reno the meeting at which you two
girls agreed togo Mr. Diggs did all
the talking and Mr. Caminetti sat by
and agreed to everything by keeping
iuiet. Is that the way you
be understood?"
Agreed to Everything

"Rut

Here
Caminetti agreed to

he agreed passively, did he
the. court interrupted
"Is it
your theory, Mr. Howe," .asked Judge
Van Fleet, "that Mr. Caminetti was
taken along also?"
"Our theory, your honor, is that
Mr. Caminetti had nothing to do with
taking these girls to Reno. The party
went and he went along with it. We
do not contend that he was abducted
but we hold that because of certain
conditions that party of lour found it
necessary to leave Sacramento without
delay and took the tirst train without
regard to its designation."
Against this contention was the tes
timony of Miss Warrington that Cam
inetti had furnished the money for
the trip and that he had given $20 of
if to Lola Norris, out of which she
should buy her passage. In this
statement and in her repeated affirm
ations that Caminetti had agreed to
everything Diggs had proposed, the
witness was not shaken.
When a brief redirect examination
shall be finished next Tuesday, Miss
Warrington's ordeal will be over.
Lola Norris will follow her on the
stand.

New York state made no step forward
Friday in its fight to return llarrv

remains in the Sherbrooke Jail on a

him into court until the King's bem a

Two Return Home.
District Attorney Conger and Sher
iff Hornbeek of Dutchess county re
turned home Friday. They had wait
ed here since Wednesday last, hoping
Thaw would be turned over to the im
igration authorities and be deported
to Vermont. Jerome and Franklin
Kennedy, deputy attorney general of
New York, said Thursday night their
plans are indefinite. They conferred
all aftt moon trying to hit on a
means of getting Thaw out of Jail but
without success.
The belief grew here Friday that
disposition of the case rested solely
with high Dominion officials and that
through them only could any moo
be made. There was a great deal of
talk about New York's representative,!
trying to induce Alexis Dupuis, the
'oati'ioK justice who committed
Thaw to quash the commitment but
so far as ould be b urned nothing
came i
it.
Thaw's lawyer.-', having succeeded
in keeping him in jail and thus
thwarting his deportation, are wait
ing for the other side to move. All
indb ations proaged a long wait for
Jerome unb-s some one higher up
took a hand in the case.
