PRICE, ONE CENT,, GET NEW JUDGE TOTRYJEROME Judge James McKee Super seded by District Mag- istrate Mulvina COATICOOK EXCITED . OVER THE OUTLOOK Thaw Is Temporarily For gotten in the Light of New Sensation Coaticook, P. Q., Sept. 8. Harry K. Thaw temporarily was forgotten by the townspeople to-day and all paths led to " the red brick courthouse, where William Traverse Jerome had promised to ap pear this afternoon for a preliminary hearing on the rharge of gambling. Judge James McKee, the magistrate who signed the warrant for Jerome's ar rest, will have no part in to-day's pro ceedings, having been superseded by District Magistrate. Mulvina of Sher brooke. A. O. Hansom appears for the - prosecution and Jacob Nicol for the de fence. Both are prosecutors for the crown. This strange state of affairs developed out of Nicol's aiding the New - York forces in getting Thaw out of -the Sherbrooke jail and since he lias been identified with the anti-Thaw interests be volunteered to defend Jerome, de claring that the arrest was an outrage. Milford Aldrich, the complainant against Jerome, got a leave of absence from the mill, where he is employed, so that he could be in court. He said this morning that he had no sympathy with Thaw and acted against Jerome because he considered it to be Ins duty. 1 got into a little trouble one time for play ing cards in New Hampshire and this sort of evens up," be confessed. Jerome stepped off the train from Montreal at noon and was driven at once to the hotel, making no statement. It was raining and not more thin 40 idlers were gathered at the station to greet him. Nowithstanding the open hostility that hag been shown Jerome, no threat was heard to-day. The crowd at the station dispersed quickly after Jerome drove away. It w.SiS predicted , that the charge of gambling might be dismiss!, in that it specified that Jerome played cards in the railroad station when as a matter of fact he was more than 50 feet away from the station at the time he was al leged to be gambling. ;.r , . THAW IS COMFORTABLE. It la Not Known When He Will Be Re moved to Montreal. Coaticook, P. Q., Sept. 8. No word has come to Coaticook from the depart ment of the interior at Ottawa as to when Harry K. Thaw would be taken to Montreal. The quarters here are com fortable and the" immigration agents lpft. in chnrcre fluid nxrain that Thaw might be held until the lust moment. "The department does not deBire to 'Stir up any more excitement about the Thaw case, than is absolutely necessary," said T. B. Williams, one of the immigra tion officers. "There has been enough already and when Thaw is removed it will be as quickly as possible." Thaw's Sunday .was perhaps the most uneventual day since his arrival in Canada. He had only two callers, his stenographer and his local counsel, Dr. W. L, Shurtleff. Most of the day the prisoner spent reading about himself in the newspapers. The officials in charge volunteered to take him. for a walk in the open air if he felt he needed ex ercise, but Thaw declined with thanks. Two hero-worshipping' girls stood be neath the barred windows of his room for half an hour yesterday afternoon holding aloft bouquets and begging him to show his face. "We want to sny we've seen you once, Harry," they cried. "Just come to the window for a second." The prisoner refused to show himself. NO MOVE FOR THAW BAIL. His Counsel to Await Hearing of Case in Montreal. MTihtreal, Sept. 8. No move in the matter of seeking the liberation of Harry K. Thaw on bail will be made be fore the local courts, according to well informed sources here. His counsel now that they have brought the whole ques tion to the attention of the court of King's bench will content themselves with awaiting developments in the ordi nary course. The whole litigation will resolve it self into a discussion of the question as to whether the Canadian immigration act is or is not constitutional It is con sidered not unlikely that parliament eventually will have to intervent direct ly to back up the constitutionality of the measure which it passed. The act's constitutionality was called in question when it was before the House of "Commons. One of the leading members of the Liberal party, who now occupies a position on the bench, took a prominent part in denouncing the pro visions of the measure, basing his oppo sition on arguments which are advanced in the Thaw side of the fight in the pres ent case. !

To the bundle was tied a piece of ' granite weighing about ten pounds. A piece of a New York news paper bearing date of Augcst 31 was found with the bundle. Phvsicians who examined the two parts thus far discovered announced yes terday that they belonged to the same bony, that of a young woman less than 20 years old. Scientific examination disclosed that the woman had been dead not more than three days. A long letter addressed to the morgue in Hoboken, N. J., where the torso is being hejd, was received yesterday. The letter is incoherent. On the front of the envelope is written the name "Dr. Moser" and on the back appears the following: "Well, she never listened to me. The body was skillfully dismem bered. Dr. Moser knew Ella well." The letter speaks of '"Isador Simon and "Ella Simon" and mentions other names but in an unintelligible way.
