Judge Ed gar Aldrich, in the federal court today opdered the re-arrest of Harry K. Thaw on the strength, of the extradi tion warrant issued recently by Gov. Felker. This was done to clear the record, but counsel immediately en gaged in an argument over the custody of the prisoner and the new arrest was delayed pending the decision of the court on certain technicalities. The arrest was ordered at a hear ing before Judge Aldrich on Thaw's amended petition for a writ of habeas corpus and also on the motion of New York etate that the habeas corpus pro ceedings be dismissed. William T. , Jerome, deputy attorney general of New York, proposed that TDaWs original pettiion for habeas corpus be granted and that Thaw be discharged and rearrested on . the ex tradition warrant. Counsel for Thaw objected and Mr. Jerome said he would agree to any plan the defense wished to offer. After a conference between court and counsel, it was agreed that Thaw be discharged as a 'fugitive and re arrested on the extradition warrant and the court so ordered. Later, however, : counsel became in volved in a dispute over the custody of the prisoner and proceedings were suspended until later. Thaw was in court, accompanied by his mother, Mrs. Mary Copley Thaw. In the matter of habeas corpus pe tition. Judge Aldrich announced he would fix a date for final arguments as soon as counsel ha perfected pleadings and flkJd briefs.

With more than one thousand physicians and sur geons present, from all sections of the United States the annual convention ot tie Southern Medical Association was f onmally opened here today. In his annual address, Dr. J'rank A. Jones of Memphis, Tenu, president, declared tirat the association had completed the most prosperous year in its history and that its membership had reason to be proud of results of projects it had fos tered for the Improvement of sanitary tui& general health conditions through out the south. - The convention was thrown into an uproar this morning during a sympo sium on the negro, by remarks of P. D. Robinson, a negro physician of Lex ington, Ky., who attempted a defense of his race on charges that the negro is a disease carrier. . Several physicians had addressed the convention briefly on the subject of disease-infected negro servants and the danger of their communicating dis eases to members of white families in whose homes they are employed. There was a difference of opinion among the speakers as to whether this condition was theoretical or real, and one speak er suggested that the family physician should examine servants of the house hold at proper intervals and In rthis way possible spread of disease would be checked. The negro was declared to "be a. good imitator and it was re marked that he usually contracted the same diseases from which' white peo ple suffer. . Asking the privilege of tho floor, Robinson said it was true that the ne gro was an imitator and that the negro sometimes imitated the bad traits of the white man as well as the good traits. He declared that his experience and observation had led him to believe that the negro with good environments, who worked for white people whose homes were clean and who otherwise were careful in observing theories of sanitation, usually made a decidedly improved citizen. Dr. Robinson was interrupted by de mands from physicians in all parts of the assembly hall who wanted to know why the negro physician was given the privilege of the floor. After a brief, acrimonious discussion. Dr. Robinson's remarks were expunged from the rec ord and he was not permitted to con tinue. Dr. Percy Toombs of Memphis, re sponded to the addresses of welcome, after which Dr. Frank. A. Jones of Memphis, president of the association, read his annual address. More than one thousand physicians and surgeons from all sections of the United States were in attendance upon the convention today.

New York, Nov. IS. Plans for end ing the objectionable gambling in cot ton futures today were presented by former Senator J. L. McLaurin of South Carolina, in an address to the committee from the New' York cotton exchange seeking a method of chang ing the rules; to meet the . criticism of the present methods. McLaurin said the. failure' of con gress to enact a law at this session taxing deals in-cotton options was due to the fact that no plan had been presented to -destroy gambling in con tracts that , would not destroy legiti mate business and it is .necessary to keep the trade channels open. He called the present system objectionable because cotton prices made on the New York exchange were based on the supply in the New York warehouses. This supply is only a small part o the total and made the manipulation of prices by speculators possible.

Washington, Xov. 18. Storm signals are flying in official social circles in Washington because of tlie decision of the "cabinet ladies" to cut from their calling list the wives of members of the house on the ground that some pairing of the overcrowded calendar had to be done at the opening of a busy social season. The women of the official set now are diviJed into two camps and the feud threatens .to spread. So many calls in the season those held to be imperative and those es tablished by precedent have to be made by the wife of a cabinet officer that it was regarded as a physical im possibility to extend the list this year. The decision to cut off the names of the house members' wives from the list was said to have been prompted by the greatly increased membership of thf? house ami tho fact that no precedent rendered the calls essential. The "cabinet ladies" have endeav ored to hold out the olive branch by assuring the "house ladies" that their names will be on the cabinet reception day lists. This has had the effect of further incensing the congressional women. , The Vestal, the largest naval repaU ship in the service, arrived in Pen sacola harbor yesterday and coming up to a point off the city -dropped anohor near the San Francisco, Patuxent ami Patapsco, which arrived last week.

She is equipped with modern machinery and aboard there aro - blacksmith shop, foundry, copper shop, pattern shop and all other equipment, including steam hammers, while some of the best ma chinists of the navy are aboard to handle tlie repair work.

Problems of Countries South of U. S. and Relations Discussed Continued -on Page Three.) BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. Worcester. Mass.. Xov. 18. Condi tions in countries south of the United States and problems confronting the United States in its relations with those nations were discussed at a con ference on Latin-America at Clark Univenrity today. The speakers in cluded diplomats, educators, historians. naval officers, scientists, journalists and travelers. Leopold Graham, foremrly proprie tor of the Buenos Ayres Herald, dc clared that t'ignorance in this country of the essential conditions in Latin America has led to international mis understandings, to misconceptions and to doubts and suspicions which have militated againt an extension of com mercial and friendly relations so nec essary to the welfare of the entire con tinent." "The, cultured and sensitive Latin mind," he continued, "resents conde scension, domination, or th suggestion of inequality. Prior to Senator Root's visfct to South America in 1906 there existed a very wide distrust of Amer ican policy. Fortunately the eloquent and frank declarations of the state secretary to the effect that the United States was actuated by the sole pur pose of promoting the friendly inter course of all the American republics, produced an entire change of feeling and cemented the bonds of friendship. . "The services of the great diplomats of the United States are more needed David Montt, editor of El Diarlo Ilutttrado of Santiago, Chile, in his ad dress on "The Mind of the Latin American Xation," criticized European gun manufacturers. "I believe," he said, "that we are likc-ly to derive more discomfort from our relations with the continental powers than from our re lations with the Unitod States. To prove my statement I will only have to mention an incidfnt in our history of the most dangerou.i nature and by which two sister nations, Argentina and Chile, were brought to the verge of war. "It was then the influence of Euro pean armament manufacturers which impressed the minds of thcss two nar tions to make them think that their trivial differences could be settled only by an armed engagement. It took the patriotism and courage of high spirited citizens of both countries to wake up from this dreadful nightmare. That we were then only acting under the effects of foreign influence is proved by the fact that wc settled the affair in a most peaceful manner. As a linal chapter to the Incident we erected on the peak of the Andes a monument to the Great Master as an expression of thanks for having liberated us from the diabolic influence of the European gun manufacturers."
