gjFTEBMOOM a (fTTqpTPr isiaition READ THE 'WARTS' i VOL. HAW BET OELAY FOB i U Rush to Coaticook With Habeas Corpus Writ and Final Hear ing Will be Held at Montreal Sept. 15. ARREST JEROME ON A GAMBLING CHARGE Thaw Attorneys Express Indig nation Over Move Court of Inquiry Orders Thaw Back to New York State. COATICOOK. Quo., .Sept. fi. Harry K. Thaw will be produced before the full kind's bench, appeal side, at .Montreal, on the morning of Sept. 15. Meantime ho may be detained here m at Sherbrooke, or taken to Mon treal on a moment's notice, at the dis cretion of the Immigration authori ties. Two of his counsel, J. F. Green ehlelds and N. K. Latlamme, obtained a double wrlt-habeas corpus and prohibition at Montreal Friday and whirled in a special train into Coati cook where not l"ng before the im migration authorities had ordered Thaw's deportation from the Domin ion. Counsel for Thaw who had re mained in Coaticook had announced that the writ was returnable forth with and a special train was made up to take the prisoner to Montreal Fri day night. A great crowd collected about the station where Thaw was confined and it was not until S o'clock that It became known that he might remain here several days because the writ is not returnable until Sept. 15. There were cheers when the writ arrived and more cheers whenever Thaw appeared at the window of the detention room. When the special train pulled out for Montreal with out Thaw aboard there weru cries of disappointment then more cheering when the news pot abroad that for Thaw the new move meant ten days' delay. Mocks Importation. Not only by the writ secured in "Montreal but by the action of his at torneys on appeal did Thaw Friday block his deportation. In addition lie had the ple.tsurablo knowledge that his old enemy, William Travers Jerome, had been arrested charged with gambling. If ever a little town produced "sensations", Coaticook did Friday. First, came Jerome's arrest and re lease on bail, on a charge that he hail .played poker Thursday on railroad 'property with some newspapermen. 'Then camo word that Thaw's lawyers had obtained in Montreal, the writ demanding his production in court there. Meantime the special board of in miiry ordered Thaw's deportation to Vermont under two clauses of the im migration act. namely, that he had entered anada by stealth and had within five, years been an inmate of nn institution for the insane. From both these decisions Thaw's lawyers appealed. Charter Stxxlnl Train. The immigration officers, headed by E. Rlako Robertson, were powerless, and Thaw remained in the detention room over the Orand Trunk railway station. Finally the Thaw lawyers in Montreal, J. N. ( Ireenshlebls and X. K. 1-KiFlamme, chartered a special train and came here with the writ itself, serving it this evening. Jerome's arrest was due to two causes, and was not prompted in any way by the Thaw lawyers. One and all they expressed indignation at the move and said they were ready to aid him. What the arrest really signified v;m the state of public ' opinion here ns decidedly pro-Thaw and more de cidedly anti-Jerome. In th" second place there is ;i split in the town council over the- action of Chief of Police John R-udreau. Thaw's orig inal captor, ami subsequent petitioner for the writ of habeas corpus which forced Thaw out of jail at Sher brooko into the hands of the immi gration authorities. Pome of the aldermen contend that Rotidrcau was influenced and acted "unwisely in the habeas corpus mat ter and should resign. Among his opponents is A. A. Hopkins, chair man of the police committee of the; couiicil. Hopkins employs in his grist! mill Milford Aldrich, the complain ant against Jerome. Aldrich s:iys lie acted as a zealous citizen and his contention was sustained by A. C. Hansnr.. Joint crown prosecutor, who caused the warrant to be issued. Shocked at Jerome. "We were shocked." said Hansen, "to see Mr. Jerome playing cards for money in public and it was our dutv to arrest him. Little hildren saw him and were talking about it. We have never had another arrest of its kind here. If J rome tri to leave this jurisdiction he will be arrested." Mr. J rome left town in his auto mobile Friday afternoon. It was ex plained that he had "gone for a ride". Ills case Is set for hearing before a magistrate Saturday morning. Pun ishment on conviction of gambling on railroad property may range, at the discretion of the c. urt, from a line, amount unspecified, to a prison sentence, the maximum of which is on year. In finding Thaw subject to depor tation a decision which was ren dered after 4 o'clock Friday after noon the board of inquiry made this announcement: "This is to certify that Harry K. Thaw of the Cnited States of Amer ica, a person who entered Canada at the Internationa', boundary line be tween the state of Vermont and the province of Quebec, on or about the Uth, Cf August, l'JIZ. has been cx- I XXX., NO. 256. amined by the hoard of inquiry at this port, and has been rejected for the following reasons: Hoard-. Statement. "That he, Harry K. Thaw, did en ter Canada at a place other than a port of entry, and that he did not forthwith report such entry to the nearest immigration officer and pre sent himself for examination as re quired by law. "That he, Harry K. Thaw, eluded examination by an officer, entqj-ed Canada by stealth, contrary to the provisions of the immigration act. "That evidence considered trust worthy by the board has been sub mitted to the board that he, Harry K. Thaw, has been insane within five years previous to the present date, and that consequently he, the said Harry K. Thaw, comes within the prohibited classes mentioned in sec tion three of the immigration act. which section provides that persons who have ben insane within live years previous shall not be permitted to U nd in Canada or in case of hav ing i nded in or entered Canada, shall not bo permitted to remain there in. "And the said Harry K. Thaw is hereby ordered to be deported to tho state of Vermont whence he came to Canada." Nothing New in the Situation is Expected Until Zamacona e Inclan Reaches Washington. Coming is Surprise. WASHINGTON, Sept. 6. Develop ments in the Mexican situation are likely to wait th- arrival in Washing ton of Manuel de Zamacona e Inclan, personal envoy of the Huerta gov ernment, to continue with the Wash ington administration the negotiations began by John land, personal repre sentative of Pres. Wilson in Mexico. Administration officials had not de cided Friday night whether they would receive Senor de Zanacona un less he brought positive assurances of Huerta's elimination from the situa tion in Mexico and was ready to act upon the other points in the American proposals for the establishment of peace. .Some of the Washington officials feel that the United States has made its position sufficiently clear through the parleys conducted by Mr. Rind, and the address of President Wilson to congress. Further negotiations on the same points they regard as use less and merelv a process of delay. There is a disposition however to re ceive Senor de Zamecona in view of the courtesy shown Mr. Eind. Senor de Zamaeona's chtef connec tion with the Mexican government in the past has been in financial matters and his mission is said to contemplate not only the furtherance of the nego tiations looking toward peace, but the floating of a loan that would be en couraged by the American govern ment. He has managed Mexico's fi nancial affairs in Europe heretofore, and during his stay here as ambas sador to the United States in 1911 be came widely known and popular with diplomatic corps. Senor fle Zamaeona's departure from Vera Cruz Thursday took Wash ington officials somewhat by surprise, for while the suggestion had been made to them by the Huerta govern ment that he might be sent to YVash incton to conduct further negotiations the Huerta administration ordered him to proceed to the United States without awaiting the answer of the American government.

SOUTH BEND, SULZER WILL BE E FEU' Impeached Governor of New York Will Probably Speak in South Bend During the Coming Season, Chairman Bonds Announces. BOOKER T. WASHINGTON TO BE FIRST SPEAKER Noted Colored Educator Will Address Club on October 21 McGovern, of Wisconsin, Will Come During the Year Banquets On Third Tuesdays Cov. William A. Sulzer, impeached executive of New York and now light ing the Tammany Hall gang of New York to retain his gubernatorial seat, will probably be one of the big cards of the Knife and Fork club activities during the season of 1913 and 1914. This was announced Saturday by K. T. Bonds, chairman of the publicity committee of the organization. Sulzer was to have appeared last May during the closing days of the season, but owing to circumstances arising at the time, he was unable to come, but gave his promise to be on hand during the early part of this sea son. Just when Sulzer will be on the program could not be announced deii niteiy, but that he will appear is as sured. It is predicted that no matter what the outcome of his present light with the Tammany gang in New York, it is assured his speech will be a grilling expose of that political organization's work. Sulzer is well acquainted with its tactics. His story is certain to be an interesting one. VU1 Hot Capital -Men. A play for the big men of Washing ton will be the slogan of the club this year, said Mr. Bonds. No stone will be left unturned to get as many of the most prominent men of the capital as possible. The season's activities begin Oct. 21 at the Oliver hotel, when Booker T. Washington, the Negro orator, will feature the program. What Washing ton's address will be could not be stated, but probably it will be a plea for his race. Following this, regular meetings will be held the third Tues day of every month. One of the big gest seasons of the year is expected. The limit list of 4 00 members is al ieady full, with -0 applicants on the waiting list. Another big man to appear will be Gov. McGovern of Wisconsin and Rep. Wilson of Oklahoma. Both men are known as wonderful orators and light ers for the rights of their con stitu ents. Congressmen, representatives and other shining lights from Wash ington will appear from time to time on the program. Thai no man is too big for the Knife and Fork club to tackle was indicated when Mr. Bonds said that attempts were made last year to secure Col. Uoosevelt and Sen. Rob ert I "aFolIette. Owing to the conven tion light then being waged and other dates it was impossible to secure the men. Officers for the present season are: Samuel Keeper, president; Harry El liott, vice president; Lloyd Greenan, secretary and treasurer. Fred Wood ward is chairman of the speakers com mittee and K. T. Bonds of the pub licity committee. Full committees will be announced later. Bulgars May Join Turks In War On Greece if Treaty Now Planned is Uegotiated CONSTANTINOPLE, Sept. C. Gen.

It is announced that a treaty be tween Turkey and Bulgaria will soon be Signed. There is much speculation as to its contents. There is good ground for the belief that it is a treaty of alliance and that the Bul gars may soon join the Turks in war upon Greece. Turkish military operations against the Greeks are still gcing on by land and water. I Marriage by Proxy Is leal. The business of the vorlJ is run on impulse.

INDIANA, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1913 HI CASE MAY TAKE OVER YEAR ATTORNEYS SAY Fugitive's Counsel Give Assur ance That Long Delay of De cision of Legal Status Has Been Won Complications Arising. PROSECUTOR REFUSES TO DROP JEROME CASE Declares Ex-District Attorney's Offense in Gambling in Pub lic Cannot Pass Unnoticed Accused Attorney Now in New Hampshire. COATICOOK. Que.. Sept. 6. About one year's time may elapse before it is legally determined whether Harry K. Thaw, the fugitive from the Matte awan asylum for the criminal insane, is to he deported from Canada, or is to receive the protection of its laws. Assurance to this effect was given to Thau today by his counsel. Thaw is certain that lie has won a long delay and immediately after breakfast Jjegan packing up tor tho journey to" Montreal where he must be produced in the supreme court on Sept. 15, when arguments will be de livered on the writ of habeas corpus secured by J. N. Grsenshield and N. K. La Flam me from Justices Cross and Gervais in the court of appeals. It had been supposed that .Ireenshield and LaFlamme had withrawn from the case, seeing nothing nut defeat, but their retreat was cr.ly a masterly piece of strategy Y,y which the doors may have been opened lor a test of the constitutionality of the immigra tion law governing deportation. Thaw Heady to Move. The fugitive was not certain when he would be taken to Montreal but he assumed that no time would be lost and said he was ready to make the trip today. In fact. Thaw welcomed the change of surroifndinxs although he has been touched by the evidences of friendship shown for him here. Complications have been added to the general aspct of the Thaw case by the events subsequent to the arrest of William Travtrs Jerome, ex-district attorney of New York on the charge of gambling. Mr. Jerome was to be arraigned before Magistrate McKee at 9:30 this morning, but Hector Ver rett. acting for the New York lawyer, had the hearing continued for a week. Meantime Mr. Jerome left Canada, going to Nortons Mills, Vt. In a senso Mr. Jerome made of himself a fugi tive from Justice, reversing the posi tion of Thaw, who is a fugitive in Can-.'.da. Influence had been brought to bear upon Crown Prosecutor A. C. Hanson to have the charge against Mr. Jerome, who is at liberty on $.0 0 bail, dropped. The crown prosecutor refused to do this. Has Hecclveil Complaints. "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. Ev eryone could see him and his com panions playing." This is a sort of puritanical com munity and gambling is looked upon as a serious offense. Thaw had double cause for elation and he showed by act and utterance that he is enjoying the discomfiture of the prosecution. In the first place he has gained a notable point in securing a writ of habeas corpus returnable in Montreal and in the second place his namenis, Mr. Jerome, is in trouble, with the possible sentence of a year staring him in the face. Will Fbzht Indefinitely. i "It was a glorious victory, a bril-j liant legal achievement," exclaimed Thaw, jubilantly. "I had about given up hope of lighting further on Ca nadian soil when this remarkable court was brought about by Mr. Green shield and Mr. aFJam'mo. 1 have been assured today by V. Is. .hurt le ff, mv attorney of record, that I probably will be able to tight my case out indefinitely in order to establish my civic status in Canada." Thaw's lawyers here are well arm ed. In addition to the writ of habeas corpus they have two other instru- menus which open fighting channels. These are an injunction restraining I the immigration inquiry from enforc ing any decision in the matter of ejec tion of Thaw from the decision of Judge Matthew Hutchinson. The court of appeals will hear arguments upon the appeal from Judge Hutchinson's decision in the Uourdreau habeas cor pus liter. Complications ArUlrcz. Complications are arising today and there are bound to become more and more tangled as the case proceeds. Interesting points of law are being raised. Of these the appeal of Judge Hutchinson's decision in the Boudreau habeas corpus proceedings probably Will attract IUOt auruu-ii. liitc proceedings Constable John Boudreau was placed in the position of trying to free a man whom he himself had arrested. It was rumored that a warrant charging Mr. Jerome with being a fu gitive from justice would be issued but no steps had been taken in that di rection, according to the crown prose cutor. It is believed by many that the Jerome case will sro to the grand jury Mondav. Mr. Jerome will have to stand trial in the October term of the King's bench. Capt. John Lanyon. who has been Jerome's inseparable companion, scoffed at the Idea that the New York lawver would forfeit his ball by re maining in the I'nited States. Will Maintain Dignity.

CLEVELAND MAYOR'S PARTNER NABBED FOR PASSING BOGUS CHECK CHICAGO, Sept. 6. On a charge of issuing a fraudulent check for $1.S0 W. D. McTighe, former law partner of Mayor Newton D. Uaker, of Cleve land was being held by the police here today. McTight disappeared from Cleveland last June when losses in speculating embarrassed him. At the time he left he was executor of a $100,000 estate left his wife by her uncle, John M. Stewart, who died in Cleveland two years ago. He told the police today that he had attempted to better his financial losses by specu lation on the open board of trade. He said he issued the $1.S0 check to buy food. He had been living in Chicago under the name of Henry A. Mellen for the last four months while a nation-wide search for him had been on. NEW DIFFICULTY STOPS GRAND JURY ACTON ON CARELESS CANDIDATES An unforseen difficulty arose Satur day regarding the three men who failed to tile their primary campaign expense accounts within the time limit provided, by law. The time expired Friday night and three men failed to report their bills. According to statute they were liable to a grand jury in vestigation. Saturday morning the prosecutor's office held that it could not take action until notified formally by the county clerk, of the full list of candidates and those who did not file. The law states that the county clerk must no tify the prosecutor within ten days of the expired time and the prosecutor must take action within fifteen days after he receive snoticc. The county clerk's office asserts it has no official list of the candidates who were in the campaign and cannot supply the prosecutor. The prose cutor holds that he cannot take action until notified by the clerk. Those who failed to file their ex pense account according to unofficial report, within the required time are, Balasz Pajor, William Solarek and John H. Clements. AROUSES IRE OF Objection Raised When James A. Emery Charges That Con gressmen Often Keep Others Away From Sessions. WASHINGTON, Sept. 6. James A. Emery, Washington representative of National Association of 'Manufactur ers, aroused the Ire of members of the house lobby investigating commltteo Friday by an indirect comparison of the methods of Martin M. Mulhall, the lobbyist, with those of congress men. Following the reading of one of Mulhall's letters In which the lobby ist referred to keeping members away from an important house committee meeting, Emery asked if a private cit izen had not as great a right to ask a member to stay away from a com mittee meeting or avoid a vote on the floor as a fellow congressman had. He added it was well known to every man who had served two years in the house that members frequently made requests of this sort. Rep. Stafford declared that In his eight years of service in the house he had never heard of such a request and Chairman Garrett said that in his opinion a member could do "ew things worse" and that such absence would be "an offense against con stituents and the public." Martin M. Mulhlal, former lobby ist for the association finished his testimony Friday and General Mana ger Bird who followed him upon tho stand made his answer to Mulhall's charges. The committee hoped with a night session to conclude its work tomorrow. SUKS IX)R IXRNITUIli: . . . .

Blake Robertson and other representatives of the immigration department of the Canadian government. j An important development occurred, in Thaw's favor which is regarded by ' the fugitive's counsellors as a big step ; towards victory. Thomas II. E. Mc Innes. who drew upthe immigration act under which Thaw's case comes, has sworn to a deposition in which he alleges tht the inquiry of the board of immigration officials into Thaw's status was Illegal. This deposition will be presented to the court when arguments are made on the appeal from Judge Hutchinson'.s decision In the boudreau habeas corpus proceedings.

Drew Caminetti, son of the commis sioner general of immigration, con victed of violating the white slavo law, will not likely appeal his case. The young man said that the fact that he was convicted on only one of the four counts, was in a way a vindica tion. "I am relieved now that the long strain is over." said Caminetti today. "I am glad the jury did not disagree and that the mess is not to be gone over again.
