W H S Mores P.oednre Wntoh Be ta toe the J .'bil.t Bloitrr', Pendtac the l-vfiilctioB aa to Blofltf'e Chargee . eait.it the ClMHltttsn IuStltnUon To day's Oevt 1 opulent A new phase was developed this morning in the case of Rev. F. G Blcgley and the Alexander jubilee children, which were taken from him and his wife by Chief Pender yester dav on telegraphic advices from Jen kins Orphanage at Charleston, S C-, j which Binglcy claimed to represent. Heroid A. Weld secured from Mas- i ter in Cnancery Parmenter a writ of I habeas corpus, which was served on Chief of Police Pender, preventing the sending of the children to Jenkins Or phanage, but ordering him to produce them in the circuit court Monday morning at 9 o'clock. Mr. Weld, in explanation of his course, btated to an Am. us tep resentative that no was noting aa a humanitarian and not as the attor ney for Bingley, who had brought the matter to his attention. Mr. M'eld said he had called on Mrs. W. B. Ferguson and had enlisted her endorsement on behalf of the W. C. T. L" of his plan before putting it into effect, the idea being to investi gate the moral standing of the Jen kins Orphanage before permitting the children to bo returned to it. This move alters the responsibil ity for tho children's keeping and insures their retention in Rook Isl and until court opens Monday morn ing. Last evening Chief of Police P. nuer received through the Postal Tele graph company a telegraphic order tor $27 .60 with wbicb to pay the fares of the children back to the Jenkins Orphanage, the money coming from that institution. But before acting tnis morning, Chief Pander rent Sergeant Archer to The Abol j e ffice to confer as to the best means of act ing in accordance with his tele graphic instructions from the or phanage, as published in last nights Akul's. The chief's idea naturally was that as he had taken the chil dren at the instauoe ot the Jenkins Orphanage he should roturn them to it as soon as practicable, and in ac cordance with its orders. It was ex plained to Searirent Archer at Toe Argus ollice that wnile there was but one duty plain for the chie! of police to perform at the then status of the Eituation, it would be etter to arrange, if possible, for an officer to accompany the children on such a long journev, and plans were disouseed whereby Sergeant Archer might make the trip. AH this, how ever, waB to depend upon .he reply to telegraphic queries which The Akol s had made in Charleston prior to Ser geant Aroher's call, as to the worth and responsibility ol Jenkins Or phanage.. The action of Mr. Weld took tho matter out of tho hatis of the police, end other inves tigations, which Tnic Annus was on the point of pushing by wire, were abandoned. Deserving and Well Oouduoted. In response to the Ancue' dispatch for information, came a telegram iiom Mayor J. Adlor Smith, of Charleston, this afternoon. ftatinp- that tho Jenkins Orphanage was well conducted end worthy. Following this came this tele 'ram in reply to a similar query on the pari oi j uk ani;i s: Charleston, S.
