ENJOYS ONLY THREE MINUTES OF LIBERTY Is Placed in a Big Roadster and Sent to Coaticook Where i Two Men Guard Him in De tention Room. COATICOOK. Quo., Sept. 4. Harry Kendall Thaw, pried out of the Sher- brooke jail on a writ of habeas corpus obtained by a coup of "William Travers Jerome, enjoyed three minutes of lib erty Wednesday afternoon and was then seized by tho Dominion immigra tion authorities and hustled by auto mobile to this little town where Wed nesday nlgdat he paced the floor in the Immigration detention room over tho Grand Trunk railway station. Thursday morning a special board of inquiry will Kit in his case and by night he may be thrust across the Ver mont border as an undesirable alien. His lawyers have planned no pro cedure to resist extradition to New "York and the belief was current "Wednesday night that before many hours Thaw will be back In Mattea wan asylum for tho criminal Insane, from which he escaped Sunday, Aug. 17. The beginning of the end of Thaw's refuge in Canada came with dramatic swiftness. A writ of habeas corpus Mied out last Saturday at the direction of Jerome with John Boudreau. chief of police of this village, as petitioner was sustained at 2:45 o'clock Wed nesday afternoon by Matthew Hutch inson, superior Judge of tho district of St. Francis, sitting In chambers at Sherbrooke. Thaw Hear "Decision. Stolid, pallid, numb. Thaw sat not fivo feet from the Judge as he read the decision. When, in the very last paragraph the court declared him a free man whether he desired liberty or not. Than- seemed to crumple up on the. lounge where he sat. A cigar Ftump fell from his left hand and Fcattered ashes on the floor; from his right hand fluttered two gay bits of ribbon a child had given him. Rut he did not rise. W. K. Mc Keown of his counsel leaned over and patting him on the shoulder, whis pered. Thaw raised his big staring eyes and stood up. Immigration offi cers in the room, headed by E. Blake Robertson, assistant superintendent, moved near him and then Thaw be gin slowly to move to the door. At the threshold Robertson said simply: "Come with us Mr. Thaw". And 'without a word except a hoarse good bye to the reporters. Thaw obeyed. Five minutes later a gray roadster Ftreaked away frcm the court house. In the back seat was Thaw. He had not even been given time to pack his Fcanty belongings r nd voluminious correspondence In nls cell. In an hour he was here in Coaticook, guard ed in the detention room by two stal wart Dominion police. None but counsel was allowed to see him. Ks press Xo Surprise. The 23 mile trip was without spe cial incipient. Thaw expressed no Ftirpriso, evidenced no grief. Behind him trailed his defeated lawyers. W. L. Shurtleff. the first to arrive, issued this statement: "If they have doctors already to pronounce Thaw insane, as I am In formed they have, there is almost no hope of preventing his immediate de portation. I believe if we could find a way to get the case into the courts, we would have a good chance to prove this immigration act uncon stitutional on the ground that It Is in consistent with tho Ashburton treaty. But If t le authorities at Ottawa are ns determined to send Thaw back as they seem to be, then I doubt very much whether they would pay any at tention to any writ of prohibition wo might obtain. "The immigration act expresFly provides that no court may interfere with the findings of the board of in quiry and I am afraid that the immi gration officials will act before we have found a wav to circumvent them." Thaw, when told that tho Inquiry was to be held In secret, wrote out this question and sent it down to the reporters: Thaw (;ics Statement. "Is it true that Rnslish law allows a secret trial with the public excluded when a man's life or liberty is at ttake. like in Turkey or Bulgaria?" Thaw's chief counsel. J. N. Green Fhields, a Montreal millionaire, was not present when the writ waa sus tained Wednesday night, but it was Faid he was hurrying here to make a last desperate stand. Another emi nent Thaw lawyer due to arrive was N. K. La flame also of Montreal. Charles I. White. alre-ady here, was discourager! and pessimistic. "It looks as if they were going to railroad him." he said. "Those high er up have apparently made up their minds." Jerome had not a word to say. As if divining in advance that Thaw was to be forced out of the Sherbrooke Jail, he preceded him here by auto mobile and was sittiag in the machine gazing down the roadway when the car bearing Thaw hove into sight. Franklin Kennedy, deputy attorney general of New York, was seated be side Jerome. "Few of the sympathetic townspeo ple of .Sherbrooke knew that Harry Thaw, whom they cheered last Wed nesday as a martyr, was to leave them Wednesday.

DEVELOPMENTS DUE IN NEXT FEW DAYS Dr. Wm. Bayard Hale Arrives in Washington and Will Hold a Conference With Pres. Wilson Today. WASHINGTON, Sept. 4. Adminis tration officials declared late Wednes day night that both Nelson O'Shaugh nessy, charge d'affaires of the Ameri can embassy at Mexico City, and John Llnd. President Wilson's personal en voy at Vera Cruz, were in frequent communication with officials of tho Huerta government concerning a new basis for negotiations through which it was hoped to bring about peaco In Mexico. A message from Mr. O'Shauchnessv reached Pres. Wilson Wednesday and I iie us contents were not disclosed, it was said to bo indicative of im portant developments in the next few days. The new basis for the parleys, most of which are being carried on orally, contemplates certain questions as hav ing been definitely disposed of. The Washington government considers that it has made Itself quite clear, that it cannot under any circum stances recognizo tho Huerta govern ment. The administration moreover, al though hoping for a positive assur ance that Huerta will not be a candi date in the approaching elections, i3 Inclined to accept on its face value the assertions of Frederico Oamboa, Mexican minister of foreign affairs, in his two notes to Mr. Llnd. that Huerta Is ineligible for re-election as mean ing his elimination from the presi dential race. Washington officials look upon this point as the most im portant of their proposals and. think an amicable understanding on it will soon be reached. Want Fnir Klectlon. With these fundamentals settled, it is understood that further negotia tions by Messrs. O'Shaughnessy and Lind would look to the establishment of an effective armistice and the hold ing of a fair and free election. Outside of administration quarters, however, much significance is attach ed to the pronouncement in concert of various officials and semi-official newspapers in Mexico City a few days ago that Huerta would now be, com pelled to be a candidate because he mm . ... 1 naa successruny aened the United States in the Llnd negotiations. High officials of the administration stated most emphatically that while they felt quite satisfied now of Hu erta's elimination from the presiden tial race, his subsequent election, would not alter the attitude of the United States namely that recog nition would not be extended to him. Their action would be based upon the precedent of President Hayes in 1S77, who refused to recognize Porfirio Diaz for a long time after he was elected on the ground that the United States had a right to observe for a time whether the government set up was approved by the Mexican people and could guarantee stability and in ternational obligations. Unofficial reports incidentally con tinue to reach Washington that tho Huerta government cannot last much longer on account of its financial dif ficulties. Dr. Hale Dock Home. The arrival Wednesday from Mex ico City of Dr. Wm. Rayard Hale, personal friend of President Wilson, who has been making a study of the political conditions In Mexico for the last three months, is calculated to add materially to the president's informa tion on this aspect of the situation. Mr. Hale said Wednesday he went to Mexico unofficially and of his own volition but that any data he had gathered would be at the service of the United States government. Ho has an engagement to talk with Pres. Wilson at length Thursday. Mr. Halo denied that he carried any documents from Mr. Lind, but It is understood that from his recent conversations with Mr. Lind and his close intimacy with the negotiations which have been conducted with Senor Gam boa. he will bo able to give 'the administra tion a more comparative view of af fairs in Mexico than has been possi ble through cable messages. Meanwhile Mr. Lind will remain in Vera Cruz pending orders from Washington. At the white house it was stated that messages have been exchanged within the last twenty-four hours with both Mr. Llnd and Charge O'Shaushnessy at Mexico City which warrant taking an encouraging and hopeful view for the ultimate view of the negotiations.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 4. "I can not imagine any good reason why the government of the United States should pay to private contractors twice as much for a manufactured ar ticle as the same article can be pro duced for in government shops," said Rep. Clyde H. Tavenner of Illinois Tuesday. Tavenner has introduced into the house a series of six bills to provide for government manufacture of field artillery and small-arms am munition at the Rock Island arsenal, Illinois. "The government is now paying to private manufacturers $25 for 4.7 inch sharpnel. the ammunition used for heavy artillery." continued Trav enner, "while at the fame time it is manufacturing the game article in its Frankford arsenal, at Philadelphia, for $12.52. This is only a sample of the way private interests are mulct ing tho government." he continued. Can't Tell Why. "Why has this condition existed?" Rep. Tavenner was asked. "I have tried to find a reason," he replied. "I confess that I cannot answer. Nobody in the department can give me a reason. But the ques tion is, will the government continue to pay private manufacturers these exorbitant prices when it has the means to produce the articles itself at a less cost? I have introduced in congress a series of six bills providing for a total appropriation of $1,030,000 to enlarge the plant at the Rock Island arsenal. Rock Island, 111., so that the government may manufac ture Its own field artillery equipment and ammunition and small-arms cartridges. The federal government Is in a peculiarly favorable situation WOULD YOU "WORRY" 1)U I1VK ci:.vts AN HOUR? Your work is probably hard enough after you have subtracted the "worry" from it. It will be a bit too hard for you if you cultivate the luxury of wor rying. Because you need a new clerk, or new servant, or a partner, or sten ographer, or more business capital none of these things need to worry you. A News-Times Wani AcU big enough to be. effective, will cost you less than twelve hours of worry at five cents an hour. And the chances are that your want can be filled in twelve hours, or less. Is it worth five vns an hour to secure Immunity fro.it worry? OF 11NITI1 at Rock Island to undertake this work. There Is available in the Mississippi river abundant water power to furnish the energy to har ness all the machinery that could possibly bo needed. The government has a dam and power plant in the river already. There are also a num ber of buildings, constructed original ly for manufacturering plants now on the Rock Island reservation, which are being used simply for storehouses. Thus, at a comparatively moderate cost. Uncle Sam can go into the busi ness of supplying himself with this ammunition and equipment, and save an enormous amount of money. Tho program of the war department calls for $20,000,000 worth of field artillery ammunition, for instance. On this one item alone, the government could save $5,000,0-00. "Just how much the United States government has paid in excessive prices to private manufacturers for army and navy materials in the past 20 years, I would hesitate to guess at. But I have not the slightest doubt in the world that the sum would equal the cost of an entire fleet of modern battleships. I believe it is time to stop this waste. That is why I have introduced these bills." Because the states of Minnesota. South Carolina, Georgia, Iowa and Virginia objected to the enforcement of an eicht-hour day in co-operative read work between those states and the federal government, Atty. Gen. McReynolds has rendered an opinion nullifying the eijrht-hour provision of the "federal aid" section of the post olfice appropriation act. The act pro vides for $500,000 to be expended by the secretary of agriculture in co operation with the postmaster general and the several states in road im provement. The states named object ed to the enforcement of an eipht hour day on tills work. The matter was put up to the attorney general, who has rendered the following opin ion: "Taking this provision as a whole, I think it may be said to authorize the actual work of road improve ments contemplated to be done by the state or local municipality in which the road lies and to which it belontrs, the federal government merely selecting the road to be im nroved. and. through the secretarv of agriculture, supervising the perform-J ance of the work, the cost of the same to be defrayed as provided in the act. If this course be followed, the federal statutes regulating hours of labor will not apply. Laborers and mechanics who engage in such work will not be employed by the govern ment of the United States, nor is a road so improved a public work of the United States within the meaning of the act of Aug. 1. 1S92." There are a lot of people in Wash ington and elsewhere who are dis posed to look upon such an interpre tation as rather narrow. irT'-V'v: VI,'T TV THT.T.OT TIOT j SUMMIT. N. J., Sept. 4.

Lola Norrls admitted Wednesday in the trial of F. Drew Caminetti, for alleged violation of the Mann white slave uct, that she had given false testimony about her relations with Caminetti. Recalled to the stand to explain her first efforts to shield Caminetti and Maury L Diggs, immediately after their arrest at Reno, she owned frankly that she had not told the truth and to that extent her credibil ity as a witness and the value of her story to tho government was shaken but her explanation was that sho had lied to save the man she loved and whom she then trusted. Mrs. Caminetti followed her with testimony throwing interesting side lights on the "eternal triangle" but in the main a repetition of what she had previously told for the benefit of Diggs at his" trial. She made a willing and even ca.er witness for her husband. Thursday Caminetti will begin his personal defense with his own ac count of how he happened "inciden tally and accidentally" to leave his wife in Sacramento with a baby three weeks old, when he lied across the California line with Lola Xorris. Caminetti does not deny his acts; he seeks to qualify them by the mo tives from which they sprang. His defense as stated Wecnesday by his counsel, is to all intents and pur poses the same as that put forward by his companion, Diggs, convicted on li'lte charges. Hears His Own Word. 4 Although Caminetti had expected to testify in person Wednesday, the government forestalled him and in stead listened to his own words as taken down by W. K. Doan. a Sacra mento court reporter, in reply to the questions of F. A. Atkinson, assistant district attorney of Sacramento coun ty, after the Reno arrests. It was to Atkinson that Lola Xorris admitted Wednesday she had lied. In the course of the interrogatory the accuracy of which Caminetti does not question as taken down by Doan. he repeatedly admitted that he had promised to marry Mis,? Norris after he should have obtained a divorce from his wife on tho ground of physical cruelty. Replies by Miss Noriis, in part to questions of Mr. Atkinson and in part to those he permitted Caminetti to asx, also were taken down by Doan at the same time and were read by him from his notes today. With Its production of this testi mony the government rested abruptly. Marshall Wood worth, chief counsel for the defense. In stating his case, announced that "the statement made in the train by the defendant to Dis.t. Atty. Atkinson was a 'frame up be tween Diggs and Caminetti to protect the girls." Mrs. Caminetti on the witness stand testified to her husband's nervous ne?s, sleeplessness and lack of appe tite the week before he left her and of her threats to carry their domestic infelicities to the juvenile court. "I told him I had bet-n to see Judgo Hughes." she swore, "and he replied. 'My God, Klrl. haven't I worries enough?' I had been told he was go ing around with these girls. I told him that Mrs. Diggs an I I had had several conversations about it and had been advised to bring suit against Mr. Waxrinsrtnn if Miss Warrington didn't stop going around with our husbands. She was boasting of it, we were told, and both of the girls said they didn't care if the men were mar ried. 'They should worry,' was what they said. CHARLTON DOES NOT FLINCH AT SIGHT OF BLOODSTAINED TRUNK COMO, Italy, Sept. 4. Interroga tion of Porter Charlton, the 22-ycar-old American uxoricide by Judge Rognoni and Signer-Mellini was com pleted today. Charlton was confront ed with the trunk in which he hid his wife's body in Iake Como. He gazed at it intently for a few moments, looking at the brown bloodstains, " but did not llinsh. The young prisoner was questioned about his wife. He said she was 40 years old when he fell in love with her in February. 1IUU. She had been previously married, but was divorced when she was ;7 years old.

This lawyer lias in his possession a number of letters written by Charlton jjst after his marriage which will be used to rom bat any claim that tho young prisoner is or was then mentally defective. Crowds of tourists daily visit the grave of Mrs. Charlton in the little cemetery at Moltrasco. Others visit the cottage in which the murder took place. Native, folk in th neighbor hood say that no one will live in the cottage because at times the screams and pb-ading voice of a woman can in distinctly heard. For this "reason the building has been allowed to fall into semi -decay. Jack Johnson Hurt, Says United States Would Jail Him for Auto Accident LONDON, Sept. 4.
