Throngl! Ticket to England.
MONTREAL, Sept. 13. Immigration of
ficials heard today that Harry K. Thaw's
friends had purchased for htm a through
ticket from Colebrook, N. II., to England
by way of Montreal. ' This ticket was to
be used, they heard, in case Thaw should
be roleased, by "habeas corpus 'proceedings
or otherwise, at Colebrook. According to
the' report Tht,w;& convinced that the
immigration- efflchtlte&a&not touch him
were he. to. pass through, tao Dominion
on a through ticket, basing 'his" belief .on
the , case e Jack Johnson, the, negro
pugilist.
This report gav.e color to the rumor of
kidnaping Thaw at Colebrook, already
strengthened in the official oplnlqn by
th presence there of a group of Thaw's
CootlcoolC -partisans and by the heavy
ruard placed around the prisoner.
Thaw's ticket to England was purchased
Within an hour or so after Thaw had
been arrested at Colebrook.
Embraced in the report was the asser
tion that Thaw, once at Montreal, would
riot sail for England at all, but would
proceed to that point of Lake Erie which
washes the northwestern corner of Penn
sylvania and enter bis native statu, where
tie believed he would be safe.
Will He Taken to Concord.
COLEBROOK, N. H., Sept. 13. After
another night of rumors of kidnaping,
Harry IC Thaw awoke today to gaze on
the ruin-soaked streets and to confer with
counsel regarding the hearing with Gov
ernor Felker at Concord, in opposition to
his extradition to the state of New York.
This hearing, according to the under
standing of the Thaw lawyers, will be
held Wednesday. Thaw will probably be
removed to the capital Monday without
further court proceedings here.
Neither side trusting the other and
Thaw's special guards trusting neither
side, all hands kept watch at the hotel
where Thaw Is housed until well otter
midnight. -
At i a. m. an overwrought repo'rter,
sure that tho presence of soma strange
men and automobile" about the building
meant no good, ran down the silent hall
ways, shouting at the top of his lungs
The entire hotel was aawake In an in-,
slant Sheriff Drew, who hod retired,
ran Into the hail In his night clothes and
twenty reporters, half dressed and dis
heveled, dashed down the lobby to tele
phone for automobiles. Women guests
peeked from behind doors on the verge
of -hysterica and the Thaw guards, wor
ried but ignorant of what was the matter,
massed- themselves livJront of his door.
Thaw himself did not wake up. William
T. Jerome also slept soundly, though
Franklin Kennedy, deputy attorney gen
eral from New York, appeared for a few
moments until he satisfied himself that
Thaw was safe.

of the federal reserve board proponed by
those four, according to Mr. Smith tho
secretory of agriculture, secretary of tho
treasury and tho comptroller of tho cur

them, would control tho board. Thoy would
cliango, he said, at each administration
and make tho board a partisan political
institution.
On tho shaft of the monument were
painted sixty-nine different functions de
scribed by Mr. Smith as the powers of
tho federal rcsenve board.
While endorsing the principles of tho
bill, Mr. Smith opposed tho placing of
such large powers in tho hands of tho
board.
