VIEW OF TOM LAWSON'S "THOUGHT DEN" BOSTON. March 4—lt Is certain that no man of affairs in this coun try, or perhaps In the world, pos sesses a "thought den" which is so characteristic of the diversified Inter ests of the man as docs Thomas W. La wans. Art, literature, family ties, flow ers, yachts, horses, doss. Stocks and bonds, busy telephones and clatter ing tickers, the serious and funny things, and in fact all that comes Into tiie life of this remarkable mati. whose charges against the leaders of American industry and finance have caused a world sensa tion, are reproduced in this private office at 31 State street. It is a small room, but it con tains enough material to establish a small art gallery and library, to say nothing of a brokerage office or editor's sanctum. The mystery that Instantly ap peals to the visiting stranger is, where does Mr. LftweoH And space on liis desk to write? Between clusters of rare cut flow ers in vases are three magnificent PRISONER ESCAPES FROM DEPUTY SHERIFF R. R. David, formerly In the em- I'loy of the Ames Mercantile agency In this city, wanted here on a charge ot embezzlement and forgery, escaped fnm Deputy Sheriff Butler at Baker | City last night. The deputy was bringing David here for trial. David was arrested in Denver on Information sent cut from the sher iffs office. He made no denial of his Identity and readily consented to re turn to Bpokani witheeut extradition papers. When Butler arrived In Denver he found the officers there not only had David in custody, hut the bad also secured one Frank Wolff, who is wanted in connect ion with the same offenses charged against David. Dep uty Butler, therefore, took possession of both the prisoners and started for Spokane. In making the Journey the officer THE MAN WITH THE HOE. TH' MAN COULD HARDLY SPEAK , HE WUZ SO ASTONISHED.

As the deputy and bis prisoners I were about to enter the ear with David going ahead the latter .lumped from the platform on the opposite side from the station and disappeared. The deputy was In a predicament. If he puraued David he would lose Wolff and of course stood a chance !of losing both men. He quickly gave c j Instructions to officers be found at 1 the depot to follow the escaped pris i • oner, and a lively pursuit was begun lat once, several men starting out in i ' the direction taken by Daniel.
