ing of union carpenters and Joiners In
Sherbrooke yesterday, at which repre
sentatives were present from Montreal,
Quebec and other provincial points,
Peter Pelletlera, member of the Que-
bee legislature, urged the unions to
break away from affiliation with. Inter
national bodies having their headquar
ters in the United States.. The senti
ment was generally approved, although
no formal action was taken.

Woman Detective Says Accusations
Sho Made, Were False.
Los Angeles, Cal., Aug. 17. The
arrest by private detectives In this
city yesterday of Fred Yockey, vice
president of Union No. 44, of 'the
Western Federation of Miners at
Randsburg, Cal., on the charge of
conspiring, to Wow up the Yellow As
ter gold mine with dynamite, has de
veloped a complicated situation.
Yockey was arrested, it is said, upon'
complaint of Mrs. Alice G. Clark, a
detective working for a detective
agency, retained by the mining com
pany, to secure evidence. According
to published stories, Mrs. Clarke now
charges that all of the accusations
against Yockey are false, and says
that she was compelled to swear to
them by another detective, who forced
her to sign the statements at the point
of a pistol. The whole plot, she avers,
was an effort to break up the miners'
union at Randalburg.

Cnpuiln't IlroilMT Will Also Ro Charg
ed. With Murder ua Accessory
Mrs Annls Retained l'lilth
In IIir II unburn!.
New York, Aug. 17. Of far mora
Interest than the formal arraignment
In a.polko court to-day, of Captain
Peter C. Mains, Jr., who shot and kill
ed; William E. . Annls, advertising
manager of n mngoalne, on Saturday
at the Bayslde Yacht club landing
while, his brother, T Jenkins Haiti,
hold at bay a crowd of yachtsmen
who sought to prevent tho. tragedy,
was evidence that came Into tho hands
of Dlfltriot Attorney. Darrln bearing
upon the case of the shooting. .
It was established that Captain
Halns and Mr. Annls were on such
friendly terms that they went auto
moblllng together as recently as May
29 last. It was also disclosed that
there were two women in the party
and the police believe the women
were Mrs. Hnlna and, Mrs. Annls. The
police records prove that "the men
were , autolng together, for a motor
cycle policeman arrested the party
for speeding on Ocean Parkway. The
case was postponed in court several
times and Is still on the calendar.
The party was In Mr. Annls' automo
bile and the police held Annls In $100
ball. Annls Only had $20, so the police
were about to lock him up when Capt
Halns stepped forward and handed the
prisoner four $20 gold pieces, thus so
curing his release. The names of the
two women were not taken by the po
lice, but from the conversation that
took place In the station It was gen
erally supposed they were the wives of
the two men.
"I have alo been told by friends of
both Captain Halns and Mr. Annls that
this friendship ceased after a talk
Cnpt. Halns had with his brother, T.
Jenkins Halns," said the district at
torney. "I Intend to have T. Jenkins
Halns tried as an accessory before and
during the fact, as I believe he Is as
guilty as his brother. It was his letter
to Captnln Halns that made the latter
hurry home from the Philippine and
question his wife regarding her alleged
conduct with Mr. Annls and it was T.
Jenkins Halns who stopped any one
from preventing Captain Halns from
shooting Mr. Annls."
Another remarkable feature of the
case Is the friendship that exists be
tween Mrs. Annls" and Mrs. Claudia
Halns, Capt. Halns' wife. Mrs. Halns
called upon 'Mrs. Annls yesterday after
noon, It was lenrned today,, and re
mained with her until nearly midnight.
Mra. Annls, who witnessed the shoot
ing of hef husband, has been prostrat
ed slnoe the tragedy and cannot be
seen. It Is said She has several letters
written by Capt. Halns to her husband
threatening his life. District Attorney
Darrln tried to ecure these letters,
but owing to the Illness of Mrs. Annls
he was unable to obtain them.
One of these letters, It Is stated, was
received by Mr. Annls the day before
he was shot. The letter warned him,
It Is claimed, that Capt. Halns would
shoot him on sight and It Is said that
Mrs. Annls tried to dissuade her hus
band from going to Bayslde. When she
saw Captain Halns and his brother at
'Bayslde lust before the shooting she
shouted a warning to her husband and
begged him not to come to the land
ing from his yacht while Capt. Halns
was there. Mrs. Annls did not believe
Capt. Halns Intended to shoot her hus
band, she says, but thought he wanted
to serve him with papers In a divorce
case proceeding. Despite the fact that
Annls had been named as co-respondent
In a suit brought by Capt. Halns
against his wife, Mrs. Annls had the
utmost faith in her husband. lAs a
proof of this she frequently entertained
Mrs. Halns and several times Mrs,
Halns was taken on automobile rides
with Mrs. Annls and her husband.
L. C. Page, a Boston publisher, who
Is stopping at the Hotel Breslln here,
and who haa published a number of
T. Jenkins Halns stories, to-day made
public a letter he says he received
from T. Jenkins Halns more than a
month ago, In which the writer re
ferred to the trouble between Captain
Halns and his wife. That part of the
letter which has a bearing on the case
"I wish you would come and visit
us.. I want to see ypu very mucn at
this time. .. I am in great distress, due
to a family trouble. My brother Is
broken-hearted oh account of a
scoundrelly magazine writer who has
broken up his home. Can you not
come and help us out?"
' The dlstrtnt attorney was Interested
when he learned that T. Jenkins Halns
killed a man at Fortress Monroe, Vo.,
seventeen years ago, ana win secure a
copy of the court proceedings during
his trial! Ned "Hanh'egaii, " the man
Halns killed, was his best friend, and
It is a striking fact that he shot him
In a sailboat In much the same manner
as Captain Halns on Saturday shot Mr.
Annls. . At Ms trial Halns was acquit
ted. Mr. Annls was Just leaving Ills
yacht, named the Pam, when Captain
Halns fired six shots into his body.
Whon the Halns brothers were taken
to a police station at Long Island this
morning they had to wait until a lot
of petty cases had been disposed of
before their case was called.
Their counsel, William C, Percy, ask
ed for an adjournment of a week, und
It was granted. ...

Hartford, Aug. 1. mVss Mary Barry,
sixteen years old, the pretty Chicago
lrl who was arrested In Hartford a
few days ago, for taking a pair of
$300 diamond earrings from her hostess,
MIsjb Mary Eleanor welsh, of 80 Bond
street, and trying to sell them lor $15,
has reached her homo In Chtcugo. Shu
Is getting matter printed In the Chi
cago dallies, hurling defiance and nc-
cusatlon at the Hartford police.
Miss 'Barry is nlvliig Interviews to
the Chicago papers, to tho effect that
her urrest was a colossal police blund
er, also that her aunt nve her the
earrings and that she took them to a
store to huvo them valued, and that
"her aunt," moaning Miss Welsh, was
provoked at her arrest. .
lAn article In the Chicago Tribune
says that Captain Barry, father of the
girl, Ig threatening to come to Hart
ford to bring action for faUe Impris
onment of his daughter.
In view of the considerate treat
ment accorded to Miss Barry by the
police, the police court, and Miss
Welsh, It Is Interesting to reud of Miss
Barry declaring that the police made
an "unwarranted blunder." From
even such a young and pretty girl as
Miss Barry, It seems a bit ungrateful.
The local police are not fearful lest
Captain Barry come here to "bring ac
tion for false Imprisonment."
A sample of what the press of the
windy city Is printing on the matter Is
taken from the Chicago Tribune of
Saturday, as follows: '
Miss Wary Barry, who was accused
of taking a pair of diamond earrings i
valued at $400 from tho Jewel case of
her relative, Miss Mary Eleanor
Welsh, In Hartford, Conn., told her
story yesterday. She Is the daughter
of Captain Thomas Barry of 3S Chi
cago avenue.
Miss Barry repeated that the ear
rings had been given to her by Miss
Welsh, and that she had merely taken
them to a Jewelry store to have them
valued, when she was arrested.
Her aunt, to avoid publicity, did not
go upon her bond, and Miss Barry was
detained In the matron's room at tho
police station, she says.
Captain Barry threatens to go to
Hartford, Conn., to bring an action for
false Imprisonment against the police.
He does not blame his daughter, nor
Miss Welsh.
Communications wero received by
R. J. Barry, a cousin of tho young
woman, from Hartford, which corrob
orate her story In essential details.
"The earrings," said Miss Barry,
"were to have been mine In any case
under my cousin's will, nnd she said
that I could take them whenever I
wished. They were large, jewels, and
I wanted to know If they really were
diamonds, so I took them to a Jewelry
store to ask. Fifteen minutes later I
waa arrosted. I wanted to go to my
cousin's home at once to explain, but
the police would not let me. '
"Later, a detectlvo went to see my
cousin, but she was unable- to leave
tho house on account of her Illness,
hut she told him that the diamonds
belonged to me. She Insisted that I
be liberated at once, but he said the
case would have to come up In court,
and advised Miss Welsh to let matters
take their course, or the affair would
become public, which she was most
anxious lo prevent. It was solely on
that account that I consented to re
muln at the station.
"If my cousin had not been an In
valid she would have taken energetic
steps against the police for their un
warranted blunder. She never ac
cused me, and protested my Innocence
from the beginning."
Warrants to Be Asked Against
Liquor Men in Bridge
Allegation Mndo Against Those Who
Sought Licenses In Fnlrfleld
Brldeceport, Aug. 17. Trouble by tho
wholesale Is coming to somo of tho men
In Bridgeport and throughout Fairfield
countv, who have haen before the coun
ty commissioners and have taken oaths
that they ara the bona tide owners of
places for which they sought licenses,
when, as a matter of fact, they aro
merely agents for the brewers In whose
employ tlmy are. The representatives
of the Law Enforcement league assert
they have "the goods" on some of them,
and warrants are to be asked for tho
arrest of such men on the ground that
thev are perjurors.
The general statutes define perjury
as the taking of a false oath to somo
material matter. The taking oath that
a person Is the bona llde owner of n
saloon when such Is not the case, and
when It is necessary to be the bona
fide owner of a saloon In order to secure
a liquor license. Is false swearing to a
very material matter, and It is asserted
there is documentary evidence in three
different cases In the hands of tho
agents of the league.
The statutes provide that any ono
guilty of perjury shall be confined In
the county Jail for not less than six
months, or in the stale prison for not
more than five years, there beng no fine
permissible. ,
In the case of the saloon which was
raided for running without a license,
at lit! Hallett street, the liquors have
been seized, and will be destroyed, ami
the saloon has gone out of business,
and will stay out until there Is a llcensa
for it. Robert Weber to-day surrender
ed the M. C. Smith license to tho county
icomlssloners, and applied for one In his
own name.
