. Papers from Glynn.
Colebrook. N H.. Sept. 12. The
next legal bat::e in the case ot Harry
Thaw probably will be in Concord
before Governor Felker. The fugi
tive's lawyers, learning today that an
extradition warrant from Acting Gov
ernor Glynn of New York was on the
way to the New Hampshire capitol,
decided to defer the arraignment of
Thaw in police court here, and to de
mand a hearing of the governor be
fore he art on the extradition. They
sent, a representative to Concord to
confer with Felker. and reinforced
the appeal by telegraph.

Former Representative Never
Employed by Manufacturers,
He Declares.
Washington, D. C., Sept. 12. For
mer Representative Watson of In
diana, before the house lobby commit-
tee, today made -a general denial of
Muma,u S general, cnarge mat ne w as
one of th6 active friends of the Nation
al Association -of Manufacturers in
congress during many years.
"At no time was I in th' employ of
the National Association of Manufac-
any time a lobbyist or lawyer for it,"
ho said. ' v'
Watson did work for the National
Tariff Commission association. He de
clared Mulhall's charge that he used
his Influence to put certain men on
house committees and remove others
was without foundation.
"You don't need to tell the sun to
shine any more than .you need to tell
'Uncle Joe' Cannon who to appoint on
committees," Watson said. When ask
ed to give his opinion of a man's fit
ness for a committee position he gave
it, but he went no further. WTatson
said he never was interested in any
bills the national manufacturers fav
ored except the anti-injunction bills,
and the proposed exemption of labor
unions from the operation of the Sher
man law. He said he held the same
views as the association on these
measures. He explained Mulhall ex
pected to assist him in his campaign
for governor in 1908, but that he work
ed only a few months, and did not
make his promises good.
"There was nothing secret about my
employment by the tariff association,"
said he, "I was not in congress and
thought I had a right to that employ
ment. I received $250 a week and
expenses and probably retained $500."
"While I was whip of the house for
six years," declared Watson, pounding
the table with his fist, "I was int.
mately acquainted with almost every
member, and never knew qt a cor
rupt one in the house."
Questioned about lectures for man
ufacturers or allied organizations, Wat
son took a shot at Secretary Bryan:
"He is the John D. Rockefeller of the
Chautauqua platform," he said. "He
has made more money cut of it than
anybody else, and made more money
because be has gone about abusing
other fellows for making money."
Watson disclaimed knowledge of a
"blacklist" of six congressmen Mul
hall said he had written. He said the
names were in his handwriting, but he
had not the slightest idea why he had
written them.
