An announcement from the French
minstry of marine states that the bom

to an attack on the batteries command
ing the bay of Morte at the entrance of
the Dardanelles and to mine-sweeping

ous official reports gave the impression
that the forts to the entrance of the
straits had been badly damaged if not
destroyed and that one-third of the
straits' had been cleared of mines.
The lierman movement in northern
Poland is developing rapidly, straining

Colonel W. H. Crook Has Been Stationed

William H. Crook one of tlie nuwt fa

and in his old age left him rich in per

of Whit House life. The assassinations
of Lincoln and Garfield, various wedding
at the Whit House, and the impeach

recalled in memoirs of his half century
of White House service
He was taken from the Washington
police force in IS 0.1 and appointed Presi
dent Lincoln's bodyguard. Prior to this
he had served in the Union army. He
accompanied Lincoln on many of his
walks and drives, and it was his duty
to watch over the president during pub
lic receptions.
Colonel (Vook txdd often of how, on
the afternoon before Lincoln's assassina
tion, the president had come to him in
confidence end said that on three suc
cessive niirhts he had had dreams which
foretold his murder. Crook thereupon
begged the president not to go to the
theatre that evening, as planned. Lin
coln insisted, and furthermore, would
not hear of Crook accompanying him.
He ordered Crook to go home and rest.

''Good "night," the only time he ever
failed to sav it, said Crook.
Colonel Crook also alwavs maintained
that the substitute iruard that niirht be

during the succeeding administrations.
It was during the Grant administra
tion that life at the White House began
to be more ceremonial.
Col Crook told how he drove Gmteau,

the White House on occasions before
he finally succeeded in killing the presi

State Department Officials
Receive Formal State
ment of Frye Case
Says Captain of Prinz Eitel
Was Guided by Decla
ration of London
Washington, 1). C, March 13. The
full story of how tlie American sailing
ship William P. Frye was sunk in the
south Atlantic ocean with her cargo ol
wheat by the German commerce raider
Prinz Kitcl Friedrich, was officially laid
before the American government to-day
by the commander of the Frye, Captain
if H Kiehne. Upon Captain Kiehne s
formal statement, made la-fore the olt
cials of tlie Btate department, tlie United
Mates will decide ukhi its course, which
probably will be a demand for expression
of regret from Germany and the pay
ment for the loss of the ship nnd cargo.
Count Bernstorff, the German ambas
sador, in discussing with state depart
ment officials to-day the sinking of the
Krve, defended the action of CVptum
Thlerichens of the Prinz Kitel, contend
ing tliat the latter acted under the dec
laration of Ixindon, which was the only
guide he had as to the disposition of
Eitel Friedrich Will Be Interned, Say
American Skipper.
Newimrt News, Va., March 13. "1 can
say positively that the Priim Eitel rried
rich never will leave this port until the
end of the European war."
This declaration was made last night
by Capt. H. H. Kiehne, master of the
American sailing ship William P. Frye,
which the German raider destroyed in
the South Atlantic ocean dan. 2K last.
Capt. Kiehne had just bidden farewell to
Commander Tnierichen of the German
cruiser. He bad paid off his crew and
was leaving for Washington to reveal
tlie details of the ship's destruction di
rectly to heads of the government.
"Why do vnil make such a positive
statement 1" the American skipper was
'That I will not say," he replied. "But
I know she has come here to stay until
the war is over."
Notwithstanding this, the commander
of the Eitel Friedrich last night reiter
ated lhat he intends to have American
waters as soon as possible.
According to reports here, the German
officers in explaining the sinking of the
Frye will claim that they found in the
American vessel's papers a record that
the ship was bound for "Queenstown,
Falmouth or Plymouth for orders." and
that, since Plymouth is a fortified port,
the wheat was contraband.
Capt. Kiehne threw adidtional light on
the coming of the Eitel Friedrich to this
American port and insisted that tlie Ger
man comamnder deliberately chose New
port News as a haven of safety.
"After Feb. 2," said the captain, "the
Germans entirely changed their tactics.
Up to that time, whenever a smoke
smudge waa sighted, there was a cry of
Alarm! alarm!' Every man was or
dered to the guns, and the ship aaifVd
straight for the smoke. After the sink
ing of the Willerby. there was a change.
From then on, the Friedrich ran from
everything. On the last three nights, 1
knew tust the oincers were gcuiug m
wireless from British cruisers. On the
lst two nights before passing into the
Virginia capes, the order to the crew
was: 'Everybody to tlie guns; nolxidy
to sleep.' On the last ni:ht, two of the
Untie cruder, were ,t t,l( nv v.rd.

that he stabbed Drury in the neck, just
escaping the jugular vein. Prury also

As to Try to Run Weights
, and Measures Office on
$6,000 a Year
House Decides for Industry
as Opposed to Fish
That the legislature is not yet through
with the department of weights and
measures was shown this morning by the
introduction of a joint resolution in the
House by Mr. Durgin of Morgan, limiting
the amount appropriated for that de
partment to $ 12.0(H) for the two fiscal
years ending June 30, 1916.
This appropriation is but slightly over
one-half the amount expended in the
last two years by the department, and
Mr. Henry, the commissioner, express d
surprise this morning when told of the
resolution. He said that he had expected
at least $12,000 per year, and would like
more. The office, said Mr. Henry, might
na well be abolished as to be handicapped
by such a small sum.
Another attempt is to be made to.
have vehicles other than automobiles
carry lights at night and a bill is to be
introduced in the near future, which,
however, will be somewhat different from
the bill killed by the House a few weeks
ago. The bill will not be applicable to
heavy teams or in towns or cities where
light's on the streets are within 500 feet
of each other.
With a long calendar to be disposed
of, the Hons' failed to indicate any
desire to expedite business and devoted
almont an hour to the "sawdust" bill,
finally dismissing the measure by an
almost unanimous vote. Mr. Graham of
Rockingham seemed to strike the key
note when he stated in urging the dis
missal of the bill that the legislature
must decide which was to receive prefer
ence, the industries of the state or the
conservation of fish and jrame. He did
not believe in passing a bill which would
place considerable power in the fish and
game commissioner, who in view of his
oflicc might not be an impartial tribu
nal. H. 2Ti8. rchting to the extermination
of insect pests was passed after attempts
had lieen made without avail so to
plaster it with amendments that it
would lie killed. The bill amends the
act of 1012 givina the commissioner of
agriculture authority to order land own
ers t destroy the pests on their prop
erty and if not obejed to perform the
duties himself.
Without a word for or against, H. 4.15.
an act relating to registration of auto
mobiles bv manufacturers or dealers, a
special order for 10:30 o'clock, was
passed. The bill was introduced st the
request of the secretary of state.
The workmen's compensation act. ss
amended by the Neimte, came to the
House, where it was referred to the
committee, and this bill, one of the most
imiiortant of the session, will he up for
action bv the lower branch the first of
liet week.

Thaw Was To-day Acquitted
of the Charge of Conspir
acy to Escape from Mat
teavvan As' -as Were"
His Fr .-defendants
That Motion Will Be Argued
Monday A State Detec
tive Attacked Sheriff Grif-
. enhagen in Courtroom A
Black Hand Letter Re
ceived by Prosecutor
New York, March 13. Harry K. Thaw
was acquitted to-day of conspiracy in
escaping from Miitteawan asylum on
Aug. 17, 11113,' the charge upon which he,
was brought back from New Hampshire.
The four men who assisted him in his '
spectacular flight from Matteawan to
Caiuula, were also acquitted. The jury
returned a verdict at 12:20.
As soon as the vprdict was announci'ii,
Thaw waa given in the custody of Sheriff
Grifenliagen of New York county, and a
motion to have Thaw committed to Mat
teawan as an insane person was made by
Deputy Attorney General Cook imme
diately. This motion was coin batted by
Thaw's counsel, who announced that in-
asmuch as Thaw waa brought here on
tlie charge of conspiracy and found not
guilty he should be returned to New
Hampshire as a sane man. A formal
motion that he be so returned was made
by his attorneys, and Justice Page an
nounced he would hear arsruments on the.
motion next Monday afternoon, March
In the meantime Tliaw was remanded
to the TombB. As the jury waa tiling in
to give its verdict, the courtroom was
thrown into an uproar by a passage be
tween Slieriff Grifenhagen and John Lan
yon, a detective employed by the attor
ney general's office. Lanyon struck Sher
iff" Grifenhagen in the face and was
placed under arrest for contempt of
court bv order of Justice Page.
franklin Kennedy, deputy attorney
general, who has conducted the state s
case against Thaw, turned over to the
police to-day an anonymous typewritten
letter bearing a Boston postmark of
vesterday's date. The writer proclaimed
himself '"-Chief of the Hlackhand," and he
said he would be in court to-day: in
ti mated that dire consequences would
follow the conviction of Thaw and con
cluded with the words: "ll. K. Thaw i
sane and must be set at liberty."
The Hoston polh-e were notified, uni
an attempt will ls made, it was said, to
apprehend the writer of the letter.
The Thaw case went to the juiv late
yesterday afternoon after a day sjieiil in
completing the crops examination o;
Tliaw and the delivery of closing sl-dresM-s
to the jury by attorneys for all
the interests" concerned. In his charge
to the jury the presiding justice said
that the question of Thaw's sanity
should enter into the case only in so rar
as he might be shown lo liave a nental
capacity and the intention to enter into
a criminal act.
