THAW WAS "CHIPPER" THIS MORNING Declared He Was Ready for Hard Day's - Work With His Correspondence and His Law Books. Concord, N. II., Sept. 20. Harry K Thaw was somewhat later in appearing in the hotel dining room this morning, but when he din emerge from his room, he was in -the best of spirits and told the newspaper men that he was ready for another hard day's work with his correspondence and his law books. The members of Thaw's family may arrive here to-day, although that is not posi tively known. Thaw is anxious to have them here to get their approval of the plan of defense prepared for him in the extradition proceedings before Governor Felker 1 uesxlay. Governor Felker, in a statement to day, declared he will approach the mat ter of extradition on Tuesday with a perfectly open mind, his only determina lion being to see that justice is done. READY FOR HEARING To Determine Whether Thaw Shall Be Extradited. Concord, X. II., Sept. 20. Harry K. Thaw's official custodian, Sheriff Drew, was in consultation yesterday with cw Hampshire oihcials regarding the ar rangements for Thaw's hearing before Governor bamuel I). felker next lues day on the question of his extradition to New York state. The possibility of disturbance ot the proceedings was discussed, although it was said that there is no apparent likelihood of any untoward happening on that occasion. If Governor Felker approves, it is probable that the hearing will be held in the state Senate chamber and that the persons present will be limited to those directly concerned in "the case, newspaper men and members of the bar. A report came from friends of Thaw last night that he had expressed a per sonal wish that the proceedings before the governor be handled for him exclu sively by his New Hampshire counsel, but attorneys here declined to discuss it. On Wednesday and Thursday, the at torneys labored far into the night searching for extradition precedents and again last evening they were at it. The rainy day kept Thaw indoors, much of the time in his room, with occasional excursions to the hotel parlor to meet friends or to play upon the piano. ThiB latter diversion has become very popular with him, and he always has a very large audience. Providence, R. I., Sept. 20. A tele gram received by Governor Pothier yes terday from a New York law firm, of which Moses Grossman, attorney for Harry Thaw, is a member, asked if this state ever applied for or granted extra dition of any "insane person charged with crime." The question was an swered in the negative. New York, Sept. 20. Inquiries are being made through official sources throughout the country by counsel for Harry K. Thaw, it was learned last night, to find if a precedent anywhere exists for the action of the New York state authorities in asking the extradi tion from New Hampshire of Thaw, an insane man, on a charge of crime. "Never, so far as I can find," said Moses II. Grossman of . Thaw's counsel, "has there been an extradition of an insane man on a charge of crime. In fact, there has never before the Thaw case been an application for extradition in such circumstances. All the authori ties I have been able to reach agree on this." MAKES WONDERFUL DISCOVERY. New Machine Takes Pictures Only at Night. Vallejo, Calif., Sept. 20. A local in ' ven tor has evolved a wireless photo graphic apparatus which works only at night and reflects on a mirror, it is said, a picture of everything within a radius of several miles. He has been invited by Secretary of the Navy Daniels to take the machine to Washington for in spection, at the expense of the navy department. The instrument receives impressions from a web of wires attached to a tall mast. A test was recently msde here. The night was dark, but the observers say they saw the reflection on the mi chine's mirror of a picture of a district at a distance oi two miles, SULZER GIVES UP EXECUTIVE RIGHTS Pending Verdict in the Impeachment Trial Lieut. Gov. Glynn Assumes More Duties. Albany, N. V, Sept. 20. Governor Sulzer yesterday formally conceded that lie tiad no right to exercise tne junctions of chief executive nendinir the determi nation of the impeachment. This he did in a letter to Liout.-Govcrnor Glynn, turning over to the latter a request re ceived for the extradition of a prisoner, and explaining that he had taken such action because of recent decisions of the supreme court that the "executive func tions should be performed by yourself as acting governor." Governor Sulzer's recognition of the lieutenant-governor came as a surprise as it was more than a week ago that the decision of Supreme Court Justice Hasbrouck, upholding a contention that the governor had been constitutionally impeached, was handed down. It was said in some quarters that the govern or's action, taken on advice of counsel, was designed to forestall the con templated new articles of impeachment charging him with usurpation of the ex ecutive functions. Secretary of State May yesterday re turned the commissions of several rail way employes who had been designated as special officers with police powers by Governor Sulzer. His action, he said, was based on the ground that on the date the certificates were ' signed "The power of William Sulzer as governor to make such appointments was suspended by certain articles of impeachment," and that the certificates "do not in this sense conform or comply with the law and cannot therefore be filed in this of fice.." Acting Governor Glynn yesterday, for the first time since he assumed the role of chief executive, affixed his signature to several bills thereby , enacting them into law. The measures approved were passed earlier in the week and com pleted the Democratic leaders' program of financial legislation. One bill appro priated the sum of $75,000 for the ex penses of trial of. the impeachment. HAD TO GIVE TJP. New York Assembly Couldn't Mustet Enough Votes. Albany, N. Y., Sept. 20. After striv ing futilely from noon until 7:30 last night to obtain enough anti-Sulzer votes to insure the passage of addition at impeachment charges, Majority Lead er Levy moved that the Assembly recess until next Thursday. The motion was adopted amid shouts , of gladness and members who had been imprisoned in the chamber for hours, dashed for trains and their homes. In making the 'motion for a recess, Mr. Levy explained that the Senate hail adjourned until the same day and that if the' board of managers were to put additional charges through the Assembly yesterday, the senate could not be no tified immediately. He therefore thought it' best to take no motion until botn houses were in session. Closing bis ad dress Levy made aa impassioned plea for a full attendance next 1 hursday pointing out the gravity of the Bitu tion. The fight' for additional charge will be resumed immediately on the con vening of the Assembly, and in the meantime the Democratic leaders will use every means to obtain a full at tendance. It is generally understood that the charges were completed yesterday. , The three chief allegations are, it is said that the governor, usurped the powers of his office following his impeachment, made a pre-election promise to make Dr. Julius Broder commissioner of health and failed to account for the fund which he obtained to wage his direct primary campaign. . , Many members brought their travel inir bacs to the cnamDer wnn mem. and as soon as Levy's purpose to ask for a recess became evident . they hur ried to the doors. Lucky ones jumped into elevators and were shot down to the street floors, while others hurried down the three flights of steps on foot. Over at the "People's house" (JoV' ernor Sulzer spent a quiet day. Late in the afternoon he went automobile riding. Before leaving, he told attaches of the mansion that he positively would not grant any interviews during the day. EXPECT GARRISON'S RELEASE. His Lawyer Say's He Will Apply for Habeas Corpus Writ. Albany, N. Y.. Sept 00. James C. kJarrison, friend of the governor and his so-called graft investigator, who was sent to jail by the assembly early yes terday to Serve until the expiration of the present session for alleged contempt of that body, engaged conusel to obtain his release but no action in that direo tion was taken. Gilbert E. Roe of New York, one of Governor Sulzers attorneys, announced last night that he would make applica tion for a writ of habeas corpus before supreme court justice to-day. "We expect to have Garrison at lib erty before Sunday," he said, "and are confident that his commitment will not stand a court review. If action of the assembly last night should stand, no cit izen's liberty would be safe." The attorney intimated that he would carry the case to the federal court if necessary.. , Notwithstanding Attorney Koe s ap parent confidence, assembly leaders re newed their assertion that Garrison would remain in custody until they or dered his release. They based their as surance upon a ruling of the court of appeals in 1884, which upheld a decis ion of the old court of over and ter miner dismissing a writ of habeas cor pus obtained by William McDonald, an employe of the department of public works of New York City, who refused to answer questions by a Senate investi gating committee and was imprisoned.

DEATH IS DESIRED BY HANS SCHMIDT "What's the Use of Delaying?" He Asked Yesterday, Following With Ex pression of His Ideas on Taking Life. New York, Sept. 20. Ilins Schmidt, slayer of Anna. Aumutler, in a state ment made yesterday asked for an early death. "The district attorney wants me to go to the electric chair, and I want to go," he aid. "What's the use of delaying T" Schmidt afterward expressed ideas on the taking of human life that fitted in with the theory of Inspector Faurot, in charge of the murder investigation, that the renegade priest might have been planning a series of homicides. He de clared himself a believer in euthanasia, and maintained that ifie would be doing right even in taking the lives of the crip pled and of persons undergoing mental or physical suffering, detective , who talked with htm yesterday afternoon re ported. "I believe I would be carrying ou God's will," Schmidt said, "if I put out ot tnis woria an sucn people. J would end their lives without their Suf fering any pain." Kaurot's suspicions of Schmidt's pos sible homicide plans were strengthened hy the discovery, among Schmidt a ef fects of a book of physician's death certificates and other blanks necessary in disposing oi the dead, bchmidt declared these were only for use in the case of Anna Aumuller. He had stolen the eer tificatea from a reputable physician up town, he told the detectives, because he had intended to kill the girl in a way that would make it appear that she had died a natural death. But afterwards he had decided to cut her throat and dispose, of her body as best he could. Schmidts papers have given us 50 clues," said Faurot yesterday, "any one of . which m liable to turn up, something new about hie activities. Ilia industry was amazing and bis resourcefulnes wonderful. But I am. unable to say now whether we caught lnm at the be ginning or at the end of a Beries of homicides. PRES.

A Montpelier school boy, Harry Shorey, aged 7, was taken to Heaton hospital yesterday afternoon suffering from injuries sustained when he was hit by an automobile driven by Walter Wil cox on Main street hi Montpelier.

The collision hurled the boy to the ground unconscious. Mr. Wilcox hurried to his side and afterwards picked the boy up and rushed him to the hospital. The injured youth was cut and bruised about 44m head and seemed to have been injured on one leg. Dr. Maguire, who examined the boy at the hospital, ex pressed the opinion that the injuries were not very serious, and later the youth recovered consciousness and was able to answer questions.

KITTLED Jure s the Lawyers Were About to Begin Argu- -ments Today PLAINTIFF AWARDED $2,500 AS DAMAGES Thomas Angelo Sued Wood bury Granite Co. for His Brother's Death The taking of testimony was com-' pleted in Washington county court last evening in the case of Thomas Angelo, administrator, vs. the .Woodbury Gran ite company of Woodbury, suit being brought to recover damages for the death of Fred Angelo a year ago last May, when lie was killed by a blast on No. 0 quarry of the defendant company, being struck by a stone as he was seek ing shelter under a car in No. 8 quarry. The plaintiff was on the stand first, followed by William Dunnell, superin tendent of the quarry. Neither gave very material testimony. Philip Ba shaw, who was foreman "in No. 8 quarry, testified that the blast which caused Fred Angelo's death was a "seam blast," heavier and more dangerous than an ordinary one. Questioned by the attorneys, Bashaw said he heard two toots of the whistle, the warning of an impending blast, one being given from the engine-house in Xo. 0 and the other from No. 8, where he and his men were drilling. He and Angelo and two other men spught shel ter under a flat car, as was their custom when a blast was set off. A ridge, he added, separated the two quarries. The : ridge was 30 feet high. Angelo was on the side nearest the ridge and he (Bashaw) was next to Angelo. He tes tified that When the blast was set off stones about the size of a man's head flew about the car, and Angelo was struck on the bead by one of the missies. In cross-examination, Bashaw said he had had considerable experience as a quarryman and also that Angelo waa experienced. Charles Hood testified that he was the man who fired the blastB. : He told of the whistle system on the quarries and said that certain whistles were sounded without his knowledge. Hood described the flight of the pieces of rock set loose by the blast. He was the last witness. . - Judce Butler then dismissed the jury until this morning, after which Attor ney A. E.
