BARME BA1LY J. 1.1: VOL. XVII NO. . 145. BARRE, VERMONT, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 1913. THAW DESCRIBES ' HIS WILD FLIGHT Appears as Witness Before Canadian Immigration Board's Special Inquiry at Coaticook, P. Q., Where He Was Rushed Last Night FOLLOWING GRANTING OF HABEAS CORPUS Impression Prevails That Thaw Will Be Deported to ' Norton's Mills, Vt., Al though the Time Is Un certain . Coaticook, P. Q., Sept. 4. The Harry K. Thfcw Hearing before a special im - migration inquiry board which is to de ride whether he i to be deported, opened this morning with Thaw himself as the first witness. Questioned regarding his ntrnee into Canada, h said he board ed a train at Rochester, K. H., with his objective point Pittsburg, Pa. He also told of hiring men to drive him-here after leaving the train. ' The hearing was private, but the in formation as to Thaw's testimony waa (riven out by Attorney Shurtleff, appear Ing for Thaw, when the attorney left the Toora during a lull in the proceedings. The impression prevails that Thaw will be deported to Norton s Mills, Vt., al though it is uncertain how long the pro ceedings which started to-day might last. In more detail,. Thaw explained he had bought & ticket to Bcecher Falls, Vt, the last station, on the Maine' Central R. R., and when he Warned the train went no further he began the overland trip by. buggy,, which ended in his ar rest at Barford. -,' H. Johnston, the farmer who drove Thaw across the line, wss next called. He said ha drove toward the border in ..the direction of Faquettsville, 100 feet .from the line, turned back, he said, and .made way toward Canaan, Vt. Finally .they crossed the line at Peabody's Line house. Johnston said that as they went through that place Thaw's low, cautious .tone frightened him and he refund to .go further. Thaw and his companion alighted, and he went home. Octave Nadeau, who agreed to drive them to the inn at Barford, was the next witness, and at noon the hearing was adjourned until 2 o'clock. The adjourn -; nront came after Thaw had brought up ,the point that the case came under what ; is known as -the tourist's law in the im I migration. He claimed he was a tour i ist passing through Canada and so was exempt from molestation. , The board said it would take the point under con sideration and render its decision later. .Thaw Pried Out of Jail. Thaw, pred out of jail at Sherbrooke, enjoyed three minutes of liberty yester day afternoon and was then seized by ; the Dominion immigration authorities and hustled by automobile to this little town.. The. beginning of the end of Thaw's rffuge in Canada came with dramatie swiftness. A writ of habeas corpus, sued out last Saturday at the direction of Jerome with John Boudreau, chief of police of this village, as petitioner, was sustained yesterday afternoon by Matthew Hutchinson, superior judge of the district of St. J-naneis, sitting in chambers at Sherbrooke. Stolid, pallid, dumb, Thaw sat not five feet from the judge as he read. When, in the very last paragraph, the court, declared iiim a free man, whether he desired liberty or not, Thaw seemed to crumple up in the lounge where he sat. A cigar stump leu irom nis lett nana ana scattered ashes on the floor; from his right hand fluttered two gay bits of ribbon a child had given him. But Thaw did not rise. W. K. Mc Keown of his counsel, leaned over and patting him on the shoulder, whispered. Thaw raised his big, staring eyes and . stood up. Immigration officers in the room headed by E. Blake Robertson, as sistant superintendent, moved near him, and then Thaw began slowly to move to the door. At the threshold, Robertson wid 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 streaked away from the courthouse. In the back seat waa Thaw. He had not even been given time to pack his scanty belongings and voluminous- correspond ence in his cell. la an hour he was in Coaticook, guarded in the detention room by two stalwart Dominion police. None but counsel was allowed to sew him. . - The 23-mile trip was without special incident. Thaw expressed no surprise, evidenced no grief. V. L. Shurtleff, the first to arrive, issued a statement. It follows: "If they have doctors all ready to pronounce Thaw insane as I am informed they have, there is almost no hope of Freventing his immediate deportation, believe if we could find a way to get, the case into the courts w would have a good chance to prove this immigration act unconstitutional on the ground that it ia inconsistent with the Ashburton; treaty. But if the authorities at Ot-j tawa are as ' determined to send Thaw INTO CANADA back as they seem to be, then I doubt very much if they would pay any at tention to any writ of prohibition we might obtain. ' ' . "The immigration act expressly pro vides that no court may interfere with the findings of the board of inquiry and I am afraid that the immigration offi cials will act before we have found a way to circumvent them." Thaw, when he waa told that the in quiry was to be held' in secret, wrote out this question and sent it down to the reporters: "Is it true that English law allows a secret trial, with. the public excluded when a man's life or liberty is at stake, like in Turkey or Bulgaria?" Judge Hutchinson's Opinion. Thaw's lawyers contend that Judge Hutchinson has completely upset the heretofore accepted intent of the writ of habeas corpus in sustaining a petition made by one really antagonistic to the prisoner and without the prisoner's con sent. In sustaining the writ Judge Hutchin son pointed out and cited precedent where the petitioner for a writ of habeas corpus had acted without authority, without the consent and even without the knowledge of the person or persons imprisoned. This, he contended, support ed tnto position of Boudreau. , Here he cited precedents at length, then reviewed the desires of the attorney general, Sir Lomer Gouin, as expressed at tha hear ing yesterday by the attorney general' representative, Aime Geoffrion. "The attorney general of this prov ince," he continued, "by his representa tive has stated that it is the desire of the attorney' general that this ease i shall be disposed of as speedily' as poa-1 eahle, and that if th9 prisoner is le- l gaily imprisoned he be returned to await his trial, but if he Is under wrongful restraint he should be liberated at once, slid that the desire of the prisoner to remain in the jail to avoid .proceedings that may be taken against him under a federal statute by the Dominion gov ernment must not be considered, and that the jail of this district is not to be used as house of refuge for such pur pos1. "There is no doubt that a consider able difficulty lias been met with in 'de termining the rights of parties in this case, but in doubtful cases the court always inclines in favor of liberty. In numerous cases it has been hld that "it is the dutv of a judge hearing an ap plication for discharge under a writ of habeas corpus . when a prisoner, is re strained of his liberty under a statute, to discharge him unless satisfied bv unequivocal word in the statute that the imprisonment is warranted by sta tute. . "The court doth, therefore, . grant the said petition, maintain the said1 writ of habeas corpus and declare that the jail er has- no authority to detain the said Harry Thaw in the said common jail o this district and whether the said Harry K. Thaw wishes to exercise and enjoy his personal liberty or not, he is entitled to. his full liberty end he is hereby lib erated and discharged from his present detention in the said jail, and is hereby restored to the liberty he enjoyed pre vious to his said arrest and detention.'' FORMER KING MANUEL WAS MARRIED TO-DAY Strict Watch Kept on Strangers Because of Report That Attempt Might Be Made on Manuel's Life. " . Sigmaringen, Germany, , Sept. 4.

HONORED FAITHFUL OFFICER. Barre Council Also Tendered Present To Retiring Warden Daniel Murphy. About PXl adherents of Barre council, Knights of Columbus, gathered last even ing at their hah" in the Soampini build ing ,to pay their respects to WSarden Daniel Murphy, who is to leave Saturday for Westerly, R. 1., to tak up his resi dence. The reception came immediately after the regular business meeting of the council and as big surprise to War den Murphy. Soon ftVrthe- tmw,r7metrn sf '-nt the order wj concluded au impromptu mimical and literary program was tar ried through. James Bennett, Barrc's well-known tenor, rendered several pleas ing selections. "Dear Old Ireland" be ing responded to with rounds of ap plause. Carl Nelson, with his pleading has voice, sang "The Whters of the Deep." John Redmond gained the "ear of the .court" when he rendered the solo, "On Dannie Murphy's Steps." Great in terest was paid, to 1). J. Sullivan, who gained worthy comment for several lri'h character songs, as did A. J. Loranger. Grand Knight E. J. Owens then dwelt for five minutes upon anecdntr. He then made the presentation of a purse to Warden Murphy. The grand knieht cited that Mr. Murphy had held the ofliee of warden since the institution of the council 15 years ago. He said that tbrre had been no member who had done more for the upbuilding of the council. For many years past he has been regarded as the senior warden of the state. In vifw ' of these untiring' . effort to strengthen the local council from its in fancy, . and in behalf of the member!, of the council, Grand Knight Owens then presented Mr. Murphy a good sized purse as an appreciation of his work. Mr, Murphy responded briefly. A buffet luncheon was served after the presentation. The reception came to an end about 11 o'clock. The committee in charge of the reception was composed of: Joseph kelson, s J. E. Murphy, Pat rick Brown, P. E. Noonan, Alex McDon ald.' PAY $5,588 FOR VACCINATION. Some Burlington Officials Thought It was Too Steep. Burlington, Sept, 4. The board of al dermen la-st night voted to pay bills of $5,5HS.15, incurred by the board of health in making vaccinations during the small pox scare ;ate in the spring, but not without much argument among the mem ber and the board of health, in which the experiences of Barre, Montpelier and other, places were brought into discus sion. Mayor Burke thought Burlington's figure were too high in comparison with Barre and Montpelier. The mayor quoted Health Officer Lmd- of Montpelier as saying that fi.'id vaccination were made there in 1912 at a total cost of about $2.TO. or 33 cents j a h.id. the sum including $76 for vaccina "'i sniem-. imn. nceorumg 10 nr. !''" 'f- Woodruff, said the mayor, 1,7(10 : person were .vaccinated at 28 cents each, including 11 cents for materials and 17 cents for services; there physicians were hired at $15 for a day of six hours, with trained nurses at" $3. The total cost of Barre municipal vaccinations was given a.4 $472.&5. These figures, however, according to Dr. Woodruff, were not to be taken as a criterion for Burlington, where doubtless they should be doubled. As many persons in Barre were vac cinated privately, the total number was abated as around 2.300. The Burlington board of health retort ed to Mayor Burke's statement that Barre vaccination did not include re dressing and that much trouble had fol lowed this lack of attention to sore arms. Later Mayor Burke intimated that (rises in Burlington were not handled so well as in Barre, mentioning tetanus, and lr. Beecher, chairman of the board j of health, jumped to his feet and aid: I "I object to t)w insinuation of Mayor Burke that we are responsible for the tetanus." Dr. Shea .said if the mayor hid in quired about the results of vaccinations in other places his tdory would have been different ope, CLAIMS DIS CRIMINATION IN HUNTER'S LICENSE Ambramo Bondi, an Alien, Brings Peti tion in Mandamus to Compel Barre City Clerk to Icue License for 75 Cents. ' A petition in mandamus 'ha been brouirht against the city of Barre by Ambramo Bondi, who protests that City Clerk, Mackay refused to grant lnm hunter's license on the ground that he iB not naturalized and not a voter in the state of Vermont. The case is brought as a test of the fish and game laws and their interpretation, which le prives aliens of the right to have a hunter's license for 75 cent as allowed to yitizens. The petition was filed with Clerk Moody of the Vermont supreme court, at Montpelier to-day. The city of Barre through Clerk Mackay is afi"ked to show cause why a hunter' license should not be granted to Bondi, who claims a residence in Barre of fourteen years and also that he is a taxpayer. The petitioner sets up that when he applied to Cleric Mackay he was asked if he were a voter and citizen of the state of Vermont, and on his reply in the negative he was in formed that as long as he was not nat uralized and not a voter iii Vermont he was not entitled to have a hunter s license for 75 cents, which amount of money he claims he tendered. Under the law, Clerk Mackay must file an answer within ten days,, and then each party will be allowed six day in which to get testimony.

Escape . from Death for Five Occu pants at Montpelier NO ONE WAS INJURED EXCEPT FOR BRUISES The Accident Happened at Grade Crossing Near Lombard Farm Those who witnessed the accident, a well as those who arrived at the scene shortly afterwards, marveled that some members of an automobile party were not killed when a freight train on the branch of the Central. Vermont R. R. struck their automobile at what is known as the Lombard crossing between Mont- Ipelier and .Montpelier Junction laH even- nig, tearing wie mucnine iiuo una aim depositing the five occupants beside the track, uninjured save for bruises and the shock. The members of the party were Mr. and .Mrs. S. h. i-arnsworth and their two sons, Rov, 13, and Rollie, 12, and Mrs. Farnswortb'g brother, William Bis sett. They were returning from the fair at Xorthtield and Mr. Farnsworth, owner of the automobile, was driving. He ap proached the crossing at a fair rate of speed and apparently heard no warning whistle from the locomotive and ho did not see the danger until too late, while the engineer aIo saw it was impossible to avert a collision although he directed every effort toward stopping his train. Mr. Farnsworth said afterrf-i-rds that had his machine been working right he might have stopped before reaching the track; but seeing it was impossible to avoid the crash, he turned about in the auto mobile and grasped hia wife and two little sons, just at the moment when the train, somewhat slackened in speed, struck the car squarely. All tfa occupant-i of the automobile were thrown many feet. Mr. Bissett was the first to regain his feet, and he was soon followed by Mr. Farnsworth, who landed near him in the soft gravei of the railroad bank. The two boys then picked themselves up and Mrs. Firnsworth was able to get about. She was somewhat bruised and was assisted to the home of W. H. Lombard, the members of that household having been attracted by the noise of the collision and having run to the scene. Dr. C. E. Chandler of Montpelier, who was later called, found that one of her hips was bruised and she had a cut on the head. The train . was stopped within 100 yards of the crossing and the trainmen hastened back, expecting to find some members of the party dead or seriously injured. They were very much surprised to find all were comparatively uninjured. Others who came along and saw the fragments of the automobile also won dered that all the five persons had es caped alive. The automobile, which was a Ford touring car, was broken beyond all hope of repair and was scattered along the track and some parts were still clinging to the front of the locomotive. The tonneau was found at one side of the track and further along were other parts, whire splinters of wood and pieces of metal were strewn about the ierritory. Considering the complete destruction of the machine it was indeed remarkable that all escaped. The train was not moving rapidly, which probably accounts for the escape from death. POPE PIUS BECOMES SLIGHTLY ILL But He Insisted on Keeping His En gagemcnts To-day and Received in Audiences. Rome, Sept. 4. Pope Pius X is again suffering from indisposition. At the Vatican it was said the present trouble was due to a slight cold, but ' it has brought on hoarseness, a headache and slightly rising temperature. Hia phy sicians suggest a complete rest. His holiness, however,-insisted upon keeping his engagements to-day, and re ceived in audience Cardinal Ferrari of Milan, who headed a body of Milanese pilgrims. The pope afterward appeared liefore the pilgrims themselves and wel comed them to Rme. FINE SPEED SPECTACLE. Given by Directum I, the Sensational Pacing Stallion. Hartford, Conn., Sept. 4. Directum I, the sensational pacing stallion of the season, afforded the spectators at the grand circuit races here yesterday aft ernoon a fine spectacle of his speed when ho took the 2:07 pace in straight heats, outclassing the field. The Capital City v;as won by Cheney, while the unex pected happened in the 2:30 trot when TJeorge Rex was declared the winner aft er three heats. In the 2:00 trot brought over from Tuesday, Fan Patch came back strong yesterday afternoon and beat James W. in a close finish. Directum I surprised the crowd by bis wonderful speed and the easy manner in which he led the rest of the field around the track in the first and third heats. In the second heat Directum I broke at the quarter pole and dropped at the quarter pole and dropped four lengths behind the field. He steadied, however, and went after the heat, and caught the bunch at the turn into the stretch, coming home in front. He made the last half mile in 1:00 Ya. Hollyrood Kate had the first heat for three-year-olds almost won but when about 50 feet from the wire the roan filly slipped and almost fell, George Rex coming in ahead. Tuna Z hnd too much for Murphy's colt in the second heat and won handily, but in the third another unexpected ending favored George Rex, as Tuna Z., with the race all. but won, broke less than .100 feet from the wire and George Rex came in a winner of the heat and the race, GODDARD EXPECTS V- BIG ENROLL' T Applications for Registration h-ve Come from a Wide Area Three Changes in Faculty and Force at the Seminary. Goddard seminary opens next Tuesday morning, when the old bell will ring for me torty-nitli year or the school s exist ence. The enrollment is expected to be by far the largest in the history of the institution,, a condition which is attrib uted to the extensive improvements car ried on at the school during the past year. In addition to the opening of Alumni hall in the late winter, there have been a number of less pretentious changes that combine to put the school on a higher Jevel than ever before. This year the number of boarders who will iiany throng the spacious dining hall in the Alumni building will be increased htty per cent. There will be more than one hundred and twenty-five students who will have their headquarters on the hill, and thin is taken to mean that the total enrollment will easily exceed two hundred. Nearly all of the new students are coming for more than one year, and twenty-five who will come to Goddard from a distance will pursue a four-year course. Among the new students who have forwarded registration papers to the principal are many from every state in N'e England, several from Canada and others from more distant sections of the country. .Already the governing board at Goddard has been forced to se cure rooms outside the school group to accommodate students. This year Goddard will establish a new feature in its courses by offering evening courses in all of its commercial departments. Down-town students will have an opportunity to enroll, and the two commercial teachers who occupy regular places on the faculty will have charge of the work. This departure from the rule of former years is calculated to increase materially the enrollment. Not only will the commercial courses be otlereu to night students, but a cer tain number of domestic science stu dents may be accommodated in the night courses. . J'ersons not regularly enrolled as students at Goddard may take advan tage ot the night courses in the three branches of domestic science. In connection with this announcement, Principal O. K. Hollister stated to-day that any regular student at Goddard who is pursuing one of the prescribed courses may take any branch of the do mestic science department without extra cost. This decision was reached at a recent meeting of the board of trustees. A fee of $10 per term for the commercial night school has been fixed, and a rate likewise reasonable has been established for night students pursuing domestic sci ence courses. Opportunities tor study ing chemistry, physics, biology, as well as the commercial and domestic courses, have been greatly augmented lately through the creating of new laboratories and class rooms. New equipment for every one of these departments has greatly increased the attractiveness of the courses. But three changes among the officers and board of instruction are noted this year Mr. and Mrs. C. K. Kinne, for some time steward and matron, respec tively, are succeeded by Mr. and Mrs. Herbert N Oilman, who came to God dard from Franklin. X. H. Miss Olive P. Calef will not take the teacher train ing course this year, as she has divided not to teach, Instead, Miss Elizabeth Jenkins of Presquc Isle, Me., a graduate and until recently a teacher in the Aroostook, Me., normal school, will take the course. Miss Jenkins comes highly recommended, as she has had experience in teaching district, as well as graded schools. In addition to work at the Aroostook school, she has had special courses at Plymouth, N. If., and Hyan nis, Mass., normal schools. To till the vacancy caused by the res ignation of Miss Mildred H. Holden, A. B., the trustees have secured Miss Mar tha Stevens of Wellesley Mass., a grad uate of Boston university, where she. was captain of a girls' basketball team and acquired a h;gh scholastic standing. Miss Stevens will teach ureek and Latin and will have charge of all the athletic work among the girls at tioddard. Friends of the school will be glad to learn that Miss Alice N. Averill of Barre will acain have charge of courses in pianoforte, harmony and analysis this year, succeeding Miss Mary E. Lease. Dunns the nast year, Miss Averill has jbeen studying composition under Arthur loote and harmony under George t had wick, both of whom are recognized as Boston's leading pianoforte artists. Charles L. Hoernle will have ehtire charge of school athletics the coming year, and he has been designated as head coach. The remainder of the faculty will be as follows: Principal O. K. Hollister, A. M., Litt. D.. mathematics; Miss Car rie E. Porter, B. S., preceptress, English literature; Harvey E. Averill, A. M., history; John R. Kurtz, B. S., science and mathematics; Richard R. Lamont, A. B., voice and elocution; Charles L. Hoernle, commercial . branches; Miss Bertha M. Bridges, commercial branches; Miss Edith H. Bradford, A. B French and Gorman; Miss Rosa M. Blomfidd, domestic science and drawing. JUDGE SUSPENDED SENTENCE In Case of Bert Leonard, Who Was Fined for Intoxication.
