' HIS WILD FLIGHT
Appears as Witness Before
Board's Special Inquiry at
Coaticook, P. Q., Where
He Was Rushed Last
OF HABEAS CORPUS
Impression Prevails That
Thaw Will Be Deported to
' Norton's Mills, Vt., Al
though the Time Is Un
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
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
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
"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
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
"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.''

this morning in the offices of Coroner
Eli Mix. The facts adduced will be

That the premature publication of

a public inquiry here to-morrow.
A. li. Miller,- engineer of the White

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

after the regular business meeting of the
council and as big surprise to War
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

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

of the council, Grand Knight Owens then
presented Mr. Murphy a good sized purse
as an appreciation of his work. Mr,
Murphy responded briefly.

PAY $5,588 FOR VACCINATION.
Some Burlington Officials Thought It was
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

: 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
Later Mayor Burke intimated that
(rises in Burlington were not handled so

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.

Remarkable . Escape . from
Death for Five Occu
pants at Montpelier
NO ONE WAS INJURED
EXCEPT FOR BRUISES
The Accident Happened at
Grade Crossing Near
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
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
But He Insisted on Keeping His En
gagemcnts To-day and Received in
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
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

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

GODDARD EXPECTS V-
BIG ENROLL' T
Applications for Registration h-ve Come
from a Wide Area Three Changes
in Faculty and Force at
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
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
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

Was Not Badly Hurt
MACHINE GOES WRONG
AFTER 3-MILE FLIGHT
Was Giving Exhibition Be
fore 5,000 People at ;
Northfield, Sept. 4. Superficial injur
ies only were received by Charles Bays
dorfer, the Xew York aviator, who fll
with" his machine while making an ex
hibition flight at the Northfield fair yes
terday afternoon, and this forenoon Dr.
W. B. Mayo, the attending physician,
said he expected the man to recover
enough to be about within a week or
ten days. His injuries eonsist of bruises,
cuts and burns in many parts of his
body and on the head. Bavsdorfer was
able to walk from the scene of the ac
cident to the John Bannister house! a
distance of 40 rods, and also into the
hotel here, where he was broucht.
Ihe c-iiise of the accident has not been
fully explained. Baysdorfer is. an ex
perienced aviator, and it ia believed that
there must have been some fault with
the machine. When he left the fair
grounds the machine did not rise very
far from the ground and as it disap
peared from view of the 5.000. people
gathered there it was still flying low.
Nevertheless, they thought it was the
aviator's plan to fly low and they set
tled back to enjoy the other attrac
tions until he should .return.'
But the aviator did not return. Pres
ently the announcement was made that
Dr. Mayo was wanted as the aviator
had bven injured. Dr. Mayo was taken
in W. E. Kidd's automobile to the scene'
of the accident, the Bannister farm be
ing in the town of Roxbnry, three miles
from the fair grounds. He found Bays
dorfer being cared for in the Bannister
house, where he went on beinc extri
cated from beneath his broken biplane
by members of the Bannister households
When the machine hit the earth, parts
of it pinned the aviator down so that he
wsa unable to crawl from underneath it.
After being examined by physicians,
Baysdorfer was removed to the North
field house, where he was staying, and
was cared for there. He suffered some
what from his burns and lacerations but
talked with those, attending hint. He
said that the machine was not working
right and he decided to-land where' he'
could. There are reports that he tried
tn turn after flying three miles but
found-jt impossible to turn the machine,
which caused him to descend. The ma
chine was damsged considerably.
Baysdorfer is 33 years of age and lives
in New VorV. He was to have made
another exhihition at the. fair to-day.
TO QUIT AVIATION
George J. Schmidt, Killed at Rutland
Tuesday, Was to End the Game at
Close of Rutland Fair.
Rutland, Sept. 4. George J. Schmidt
of this city, the popular young aviator,
who was killed by the fall of his aero
plane at the Rutland fair Tuesday, had
promised his mother that he would quit
aviatiort after the close of the local fair.
He was scheduled to circle Mount Kil
lington yesterday, take dinner there and
return to the fair grounds in the after
noon. Assistant City Judge J. Dyer Spell
man, a passenger with Schmidt, is still
too weak to talk of the accident. He is
cut and bruised and has a severe burn
on his back. He will be in the hospital
for some time.
Schmidt said to his brother, Charles,
just liefore bis death: "I do't know
what the matter was. ' It was not my
fault and it was not Dyer's." Persons
who saw the machine plunge 100 feet
to earth after careening for some sec
onds, say that the noise of the engine
stopped just before the aeroplane began
to tilt and that it started again while
the airship was on its downward course.
The engine was running when the two
crumpled passengers were taken from
the wrecknge. Vn the Held over wnicn
the machine flew a new iron bolt was
picked up. It is believed that this may
have fallen from the engine, being pri
marily responsible "for the accident.
