THE B ARM DAI LY TIS
EES VOL. XVII NO. 14G. BARRE, VERMONT, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 1913. PRICE, ONE CENT. THAW ORDERED TAKEN New Habeas Corpus Writ Was Issued To-day by Judge Gervais, Demand ing That He Be Taken .There from Coaticook . HEARING ABRUPTLY CALLED TO HALT Thaw Was Just Called to Stand in the Immigration Board's Hearing, When the Session Was Suspend ed To-day , ,; , Montreal, Sept. 5. Judge Gervais to day issued a writ of habeas corpus call ing for the production of Harry K. Thaw in Montreal immediately. Coaticook, P. Q., Sept. 5. Harry K. Thnw'i sparine was resumed at 10 o'clock this mornintr with Thaw on the stand, but he was almost immediately withdrawn, and it was reported the board had readied a decision. At noon no announcement had been made as to the reason for the sudden termination of the session of the board and both Thaw . and those who seek 1iis return to Matteawan were iiopefurof the outcome. Thaw was perhaps the least disturbed "person of all. He wan stunned and shocked when the habeas corpus writ was sustained, but the trip here by au tomobile did not trouble him in the least, and ' yesterday's griHing was so much like the court battles of old that he wa unruffled, except when asked about his mother. ' It had been planned to devote to-day to an inquiry into his sanity, but the session came to an end before the board really commenced questioning. Thaw was on the stand most of yes terday and made a good witness. Toward the close of the afternoon ses sion his Inquisitors gradually worked into the question of hid sanity, and though his counsel violently objected it was of no avail. Though staving off deportation for the day, Thaw lost in two particulars. His 'lawyers were denied a writ of prohibi tion by Superior Judge Matthew Hutch inson at Sherbrooke, the same judge who sustained the writ of habeas corpus which cast Thaw out of the Sherbrooke jail Wednesday, and he failed to estab lish before tile Imard the contention that lie had enter Canada as a tourist, and, like "Jack" Johnson, should be allowed to continue to his destination. He could produce no through ticket to any point outside Canada. There was in his pos session a ticket to Detroit, but unfor tunately for Thaw it had been purchased at Coaticook. Unable to show that he had come into the Dominion at any recognized port of mtry, Thaw was practically convicted of enteripg by stealth, and on this cliarge alone he can be deported. But on this .charge he could appeal to the minister of the interior while no appeal would lie should he be found insane at the present time or to have been in an insane asylum within five years. If found of tinsound mind now, it is within the dis cretion of the board to deport Thaw di rect to the New York state line, pos sibly to Rouses Point. Conviction on cither of the other two charges would mean deportation to Vermont. William T. Jerome spent an im patient day. As chief of the New York forces he hoped to have Thaw across the border last night. His automobile stood all day near the Grand Trunk railway station in the second story of which Thaw is held. Thaw resented keenly the questions as to his sanity. If this were to be taken up, he contended, he should be allowed to have alienists present. Two physi cians for the immigration authorities, Ih-s. Gurd snu Beauchamp were present. T When asked point blank if he was sane or insane when he killed Stanford White, Thaw quoted, with a remarkable show of memory from the conflicting opinions of the many alienists identified with his case and laconically suggested that the boar d take its choice. He bridled when asked about his mother's condition, just prior to his birth, and said that perhaps she was better quali fied to answer. JEROME ARRESTED ON GAMBLING CHARGE Milford Aldrich, a Coaticook Citisen, Swears He Saw Thaw Prosecu tor Playing Poker in Public Coaticook, P. Q., Sept. 5. William Travers Jerome was arrested here to day, charged with gambling. A com plaint was made by Milford Aldrich. a citizen, who swore he saw Jerome play ing poker in public yesterday. Jerome was taken to the jail where Thaw wa confined when firt brought here a fort night ago. Jerome's arrest as made at his hotel AT ONCE TO MONTREAL by a policeman. Jerome was so sur prised he could (hardly speak. At a mat ter of fact he had indulged in a penny ante game with some newspaper men. They used a. suit case for a table and sat in an automobile, awaiting the end of the Thaw hearing. A pro-Thaw out break followed, the arrest and crowds gathered about the jail shouting "Hoo ray for Thaw. Now we'H deport Je rome." Shortly before noon, Jerome was ad mitted to bail in $500 and left the jail smiling. The man who preferred . the charge against him is a mill hand. TWO TRAINMEN ARRESTED.

Though gaunt and nervous, he wss in a fighting mood. "Ihey have called me a scapegoat," bo said. "I am no scapegoat. I want to say that have nothing to fear. I am going to clear myself. I have been demoralized by all that has been printed about this wreck, but I don t care so Jong as the truth comes out. lhat is all 1 want. Miller was served with a subpoena aa he left the court room, caJling upon him to appear at the inquiry .into the wreck to lie begun to-day by: the interstate commerce commission. Murray was locked in a cell shortly before midnight for lack of a bondsman. Inspector Belnap said that he bad been informed that Murray had 'testified at the joint preliminary investigation lues dav by the coroner, public utilities com mission and railroad omcials. that he had placed the torpedoes "six or seven telegraph poles back," a distance of from 998 to .1,182 feet, engineer Miller tes tified on the other hand, Mr. Belnap said, that the torpedoes were only two poles back, or 332 feet when he heard them go off. From his cell, Murray described his efforts to stop the White Mountain ex press just before it crashed into the Bar Harbor tram. Murray denies that he was standing on the tracts tnrowing stones, as re ported, when the White Mountain bore down.

Company G, Sixth Vt. volunteers, held its annual reunion in the Grand Army hall at the city building to-day with an attendance of 24 members, 13 of whom shouldered their muskets and marched away to the South on the morning of Oct. 15, 1801. The others who go to make up the 24 are merely honorary members of the company, men and wom en, descendants of the soldier boys, who have taken it upon themselves to per petuate the organization after the last roll has been called among the veterans. President E. L. Smith of Barre called the meeting to order at 10 o'clock this morning. Of the 20 old veterans who are known to be living, 13 responded to the call. The whereabouts of the others with one or two exceptions are not known. During the forenoon Comrades Strong, Rock, Smith and Parmenter en tertained the compiiiy with remini scences of the old days in the army of the Potomac. One of the best known companies in the 1 old Vermont brigade, Company G, followed the fortunes of the Potomac division throughout the course of the four years war. Every big bat tie, every little skirmish in which the army figured saw the Sixth regiment well to the fore 111 the fighting.

' Early this afternoon, a- vote from the floor decided tSie place of the reunion to be held in 1914. It was fitting, in deed, that the veterans should choose Waitsfield for the annual get-together, since it was there that the company was formed at the outbreak of. the war and from Wiiitsfield the company start ed for the mobilization grounds. Next year's reunion will lie held at the town hall in Waitsfield Sept. 17. Free trans portation will be furnished visitors from Middlesex to the reunion.

People who have been scared into aban doning cold water.. as an every-dmy bev erage in favor of something stronger or more palatable may derive a measure of convolution from figures computed by City Engineer George A. Reed relative to the tot-il inflow of water into the city's reservoirs. On the face of the en gineer's findings after carefully measur ing the fiowage at Orange and at the Martin brook yesterday the water situa tion seems to have lost something of the aspects of a calamity, although there is still need for conservation ot the pres ent supply. From measurements made bv the weir, it is estimated that. 815,000 gallons of water are daily flowing into the Orange reservoir, the Martin brook and the Scott brook. Yesterdiy. the engineer, superintendent and member of the wa ter committee pentratcd the country above Orange reservoir for a distance of several miles. They were bent on find ing out just how much water was flow ing into the reservoir. Above Lord's mills, so called, the weir registered a depth which when later translated into L'allons, showed that 375,000 gallons, ac cording to the table of computation, are daily making their way into the reser voir. At Nelson's mill, the proprietor is catching as much water as possible for his own temporary use and the quantity diverted into this channel each dav is 160.000 gallons, which in the end is available for local consumption. The little stream that feeds the Martin res ervoir is yielding zmyaiu gallons eacn 24 hours, doubtless a larger volume than most people have been led to believe. The weir registered 00,000 gallons for the Scott brook. To-day's official inspection of the wa ter supplies was postponed until to-morrow, when the alderminic water com mittee and others will look over the three reservoirs. Pumping at the Smith stock farm is still under way and the Bolster reservoir is being gradually filled. It is expected that some 2. days will ensue before the big basin can be filled by the pumps from the Wiliiainstown bianch. TWO TOOK LIQUOR FOR ILLNESS And Were Landed in Montpelier Jail For Intoxication. Four men were arraigned in Mont pelier city court to-day on charges of in toxication, three of them being former offenders.

PASSING AUTOS SIDESWIPE A" Five Occup- " One Were Hwinto the ' Road BUT ALL ESCAPED SERIOUS INJURY Mrs. Justin Woodward of East Barre Sustained a Long Cut on Forehead " Five occupants, of an East Barre au tomobile were thrown into the road near E.
