- Qnebec, May ?D^COI . John F.
^^Sayiior and Capt. B: D. Greene, - who
l?|?&?rfeiied their bail at Savannah early;
inflaren and fled to Canada,. were
-placed nuder arrest by officers eohnect
" ed with the United States secret ser?
vice and Chief ' Carpenter of the Mon?
treal detective force today..
The arrests were made ?n; warrants |
issued in -Montreal, Chief Wilkie's *
?, '?? .men assisting the Canadian officers to
make.the arrests.
3?he men were -hurried on board a
swift little tug which had been kept
inwaiting at the wharf. Ten .min?
utes'after Greene and Gaynor were
safely on board the boat and steamed
out np the river and. started toward
Montreal. The officers moved so quick?
ly that neither of the prsioners was
gi ven an opportunity to consult counsel.
When notified of her husband's ar- !
rest Mrs. Gaynor afc once consulted
:: ; Mr. Tachereau, her , husband's attor
5v ; . ?ny. N A tug was chartered and .an at
: tempt was made to overtake the boat;
on which Gaynor and Greene were be?
ing carried away.
After a short chase it was seen by?
those on board the pursuing tug that"
. it would be impossible to overtake the
detective boat, the Spray, one of the
swiftest tugs on; the St Lawrence, and
the pursuit was abandoned.
On returning to the city it was de
v.. - ? eided to charter a special train and at
>V' tempt to head off the Spray, at some
point between this city and Montreal.
The arrest of Greene ano* Gaynor ?
and the manner in'which it was ac?
complished caused considerable ex
:>?? citement in the city "where both men
have become well known.
Montreal, May 15.-The pursuit of
the tug Spray by the Quebec author-.
!?o> is probably due to a misunder
" standing of the situation owing to the
quick arrest there. The provincial
police at Quebec evidently think Gay?
nor and Greene were kidnapped by
American officers.
Donald MacMaster, counsel for the |
United States government, who plan
ned and directed the arrest, returned I
from Quebec this evening.
"A legal arrest was made in a legal
way," he stated to the Associated
Press correspondent. "Gaynor and
Greeen are wanted here to answer to
a charge laid before an extradition
commissioner. The people in Quebec
who are raising so much fuss must
misunderstand the whole thing. There
has been no kidnapping."
The authorities here claim that there
is not the slightest danger of a serious
conflict between the detectives who
have arrested Gaynor and Greene in
Quebec and ,those trying to overtake
them. Detective Carpenter has power
to make arrests anywhere in the pro?
vince of Quebec on a warrant issued
within the province.
Washington, May lo.-The kidnap?
ping and the subsequent arrest of Gay?
nor-and Greene at Quebec was the re?
sult of a carefully laid plan of Chief
Wilkie of the secret service. It was
denied that the department had sent
men to apprehend the fugitives, but
it was later learned that Inspectors
Bennett, Burke, Taylor and three oth?
ers had been assigned to the case. The
capture was planned to come off yes
terday and the department had been
looking ' Tor news of their arrest all
day. . Even now the secret service"
.officials will not. admit the receipt of
any advices, but it is known that
the whole arrangements were - perfectly
carried out, even .to the issuance of
ithe^wazraxits. by the judge, on the ap?
plication of Chief of Detectives Car?
penter of Montreal:
The expectation here is that when
arraigned before the. Montreal author?
ities Messrs. Gaynor and. Greene will
endeavor to secure their release by
habeas corpus ; proceedings. Any ef?
forts in that line will be vigorously
resisted\by Mr. Erwin, who has em
, ployed a well known firm of attorneys
1 of Montreal to assist him in whatever
proceedings are had. The confident
belief of the officials here is that this
government will be abie to secure the
extradition of the two men, in which
case they will be taken to Savannah
for triaL i A careful- perusal of the ex?
tradition treaty, they say, demon?
strates that its provisions are broad
enough to cover the offenses charged
against theni in the indictment. It is
not- known here, just what the warrant
for arrest charges. . The case is quite
complicated but an earnest effort will
beilade to compel the men to stand'
trial in Georgia.

Sudden Death of Spartanburg
Special to the State.
Spartanburg? May 14.-Mr. George
Cofield, Sr., president of the National
Bank of Spartanburg, died at his resi?
dence in this city this afternoon at 3
o'clock. Mr. Cofield has been in fail-:
ing, health for a long time past, but
was apparently able to be about and
in good spirits up to last evening.
Yesterday he was at the bank the reg?
ular hours, transacting his duties.
Last night he was taken suddenly sick !
with pneumonia and never rallied j
from the time the disease grasped him j
until the end came.

"At the end of the campaign," writes

of sleep and constant speaking I had about
"utterly collapsed. It seemed that all the
organs in my body were oat of order, but
three bottles of Electric Bitters made me
all right. Ifs the best all-around medi?
cine ever sold over a druggist's counter."

Writ of Habeas Corpus Not
. Montreal, May 16.-John F. Gray nor
and B. D. Greene are guests at the
Windsor hotel, each guarded by a
local detective, with a force of Uni
ted States-secret service augment?
unofficially in reserve. They will not
go back to Quebec, much , as they and
their friends desire it and in spite,
of the writ of habeas corpus granted
yesterday by Judge Andrews, of
Quebec, directing Chief Detective
Carpenter to return his prisoners to
that city. "When the Spray arrived
in Montreal this morning the party,
drove to the Windsor. At T o'clock
they -again left the hotel, just as the
pursuing' force from Quebec, which
had come up from Sorel on the Quebec
boat reached the hotel.
. Chief Carpenter took his prisners to
Judge Lafontaine's :residence and an
impromptu court was convened in the
judge's library. Detective Carpenter
handed the Judge the warrants with
the return marked upon the back as is
usual The prisoners were asked if
they were guilty or not guilty, and not
replying, the judge's clerk accepted
their failure to plead as a plea of not
guilty. Judge lafontaine then said :
""Prisoners, I remand you for trial iwtil
Monday, the 19th of this month,
without bail."
The prisoners bowed, and the judge
informed Carpenter that he remanded
the -prisoners to his custody.
In the meantime High Constable
Gale of Quebec with the writ of
habeas corpus was searching diligent?
ly for Mr. Carpenter. At 10 o'clock
he found him in his office and served
the writ. Mr. Carpenter was placed in
a dilemma. He was in possession of a
document calling on him to produce
the bodies of Gaynor and Greene
before Judge Andrews in Quebec
today and he no longer had the? prison?
ers in his possession,' having been re?
lieved by Judge Lafontaine. He con?
sulted his counsel and was informed
that if he attempted to return the
prisoners to Quebec he would be liable
to arrest for- contempt of the local
court, whose mandate he had received
and executed. So an answer setting
forth the facts in the matter was pre?
pared ad set down to Quebec, and with
that it is expeeteed the Quebec people
will have to remain satisfied.
The jurisdiction of an extradition
commissioner, extends over the entire
dominion and the arrests of Greene
and Gaynor were made by an officer
qualified to make arrests in any por?
tion of the province; consequently
fchera is no doubt that they will hold.
This evenings Mrs. Gaynor arrived
from Quebec She was accompanied
by Hon. Jules Tessier, counsel for the
prisoners, who had a consultation with,
them at the Windsor. In addition,
Hon. S. O. Tailjon and H. C. St.
Pierre have also been retained, so
that a formidable array of counsel
will take part in what promises to
be as spirited a legal fight as Mon?
treal has witnessed since John C.
Eno, the defaulting New York bank?
er, successfully resisted extradition.
Et would not be surprising if a fight
between the Quebec and Mnotreal
courts is made a prefix to the main
battle of the lawyers.
The Quebec force had the services of
two tugboats and a special train in a
vain effort to /head off thefSpray yes?
terday, and the failure has made ali
concerned exceedingly wrathy.
"Gaynor and Greene had engaged the
services of all the best lawyers in
Quebec, and the change of venue
leaves these gentlemen out in the
cold. It was stated this afternoon that
the provincial governor had instructed
Judge Lafontain to obey the writ of
habeas corpus, but the judge says that
all he knows about the case is that he
issued a warrant and that the men
called for in that document were pro?
duced before him. He had remanded
the prisoners until Monday morning
and expected that they would be then
again produced before him.
Legal opinion in Montreal is that
habeas corpus proceedings cannot be
instituted until Judge Lafontain has
decided the case. Then if he commits
them for extradition, proceedings of
that nature will be in order.

London, May 15.-The correspon?
dent of The Daily^ Ma? at Barbadoes,
B. W. L, who visited *St. Pierre on
board the Royal Mail steamer Solent,
has learned from a Dr. Artier, who
miraculously escaped the disaster, that
when the governor of Martinique, M.
L. Mouttet, 'and -the insular officials
had declared that all danger from an
eruption of Mont Pelee was past a cor?
don of armed soldiers and policemen
was placed around th? town to prevent
the people from leaving. Dr. Artier,
however, went to the suburb of Morne
Rouge. He was riding back to St.
Pierre when the explosion Occurred.
He turned and fled precipitately across
the mountains to Fort de France.
With the exception of the prisoner.
who was confined in a duhjgeon at the
time of the explosion, Dr. Artier is
really the sole survivor of St. Pierre.

Illness of the Chief Justice.
The Associates Justices of the Su?

and of the desire to haye a full Bench
in a certain case. It may be the be?
ginning of a general request for a full
Bench to sit, or it may be an indivi?
dual case. Judge Singh was asked to
sit in the case, but stated that he was
engaged and could not be present and
Justice Pope will be asked to suggest
some one else to sit in the case.-Cor.
News and Courier.
President Roosevelt is reported as
having said that never while he is Pres?
ident of the . United States will
Maclay's history be used at the Naval
Academy as a text book.
The President means by this to say
that Maclay's history, so-called, is not
a history, but a one-sided narrative,
full of prejudice and* spite. Men- like
Maclay are not fit to write history. A
historian should be a man of broad
viewland should be a truthful report?
er. If he suppresses or extenuates or
misstates or misleads he is not a histo?
rian, but a partisan writer. It is
scarcely less than criminal to teach
the children out of such a book,
whether it be written by Maclay con?
cerning the Spanish-American war
or by a Northern writer or a Southern
writer concerning the war between
the States. We have no right to teach
the children'anything except the exact
truths of history, when we set out to
teach them history at alL vYe have no
right to mislead the children by mis?
statement or suppression or extenua?
tion or coloring or what not. The

OH Mill and Compress Men Going S
Into Ginning Business. V;?
New Orleans, La., May 13.-A fonr|f?^
cornered fight between th? rbnnd^cot^ ^S?M,
ton bale, the cotton gin, the bil mills %4?
and the compresses has "broken outr/;
in Texas which threatens to r?volu-.
tionize the cotton ginning business fortis
next seaspn and destroy the.:: ginneriies^^
unless the Texas Farmers' c?ngress?:4^?f|
which meets at College station in July/ -: -
can take some steps br surest some
legislation to protect the owners':; bf
gins.- '.
The trouble is due to: th? fiaaht^
Bale trust, which has made itself ^fel??
in Texas, particularly during the lastlW
year. The trust got such a large shared||H
of the cotton that the compress .cbm^'-v^;
panies and cotton seed oil men began ^ 4 -
to feel it. : : . - :
Formerly, the cotton went to i 't?f??&??
gin, which separated the seed and. the ; :y>k|
lint. The seed was sold to the oil mill& ^;?>j
and the lint, which was; ^aled,-was^ps
subsequently taken to the compress
have the bales pressed so *? that thejr-; -? >?
would occupy less room'and could :be-'-. ^
carried on vessels or railroads. :/i ^ ''^
When the trust took more, cotton the .jr : ||
gins got less, and so did the ^mprcss^|;^P
es and the cottonseed oil mills. They 'll
appealed to the owners of gins" tb?mak?^v
a fight, with the trust and bid for the-:" VM
cotton, but the gin men refused to -do . ; i>:
this. .-_ -y. - ."VV
Finally, seeing that they could not; if J
depend upon any assistance, : the /-millr?\-?g
men and the compress men deternuned^;f||
to go into the ginning business. The i
cotton seed oil mills in Teaxs -are^'^g
now erecting ginneries at which they
will gin the cotton free, retaining only^";^
the seed for their mills. : ? -^?S
The compresses are now buying, seed*
cotton doing the ginning: as well ?s??^?|
the baling. In fact, all four interests,/.Vt
the oil mills, compresses, ginners and?||||
round bale men are prepared to gin.-:
and will bid on the seed cotton this:
fall. It is thought that the local*gj^????
will be the worst sufferers from* this; ^||v
too active competition.
