Sir Wilfrid Laurler Will Discuss Trade
Ottawa. May 2.���In regard to the
cabled repurl from Berlin that a trade
nrningnient Is about completed with
Oermany, It may be said that some Informal negotiations hnve taken place
between Canada and Gcrmny respecting better trade relatione, but nothing
has ever been accomplished. Tbe surtax remains In full force against Germany. Although complaining bitterly of
Canada's action Oermany never did
anything to remove the cause which
necessitated the surtax. It ls expected
that Sir Wilfrid Laurler will look over
the situation after the colonial conference ls over when he Intends visiting
the continent.
Sixty Square  Milea of Suburban Property Should  Have Reverted
80 Yean Ago,
London. May 3.���A romance of prop-
erty, unique In the history of land ownership and In Whose Issue the whole
nation Is interested, underlies the announcement that the attorney general
of Oreat Britain has decided to declare
the Page state escheat to the crown,
and that a select committee of the
House of Commons Is to be ut once ap-
pulnted to ascertain hew, by whom, and
during what period the nation has been
deprived of the proceeds of the property.
This decision means lhat property
worth millions of money in and near
London Is at stake.
The Page cstute Is an area of some
60 square miles, Including a third of the
county of Middlesex, whole suburbs of
London, and sections of rural Hertfordshire. Harrow is approximately Its
centre. Some of the finest residential
districts In the West End and a suburban area which is certain to be enormously developed lu the next few years,
as well as rich agricultural districts to-
wards the Ducks and Herts borders, are
part of the enormously valuubie Page
The hlotory of Ihe estate begins with
lhe suppression of the monasteries, in*
eluding Kllbourn Priory, by Henry VIII.
A local legend, It Is said, relates tbat
the ejected nuns foretold that those who
succeeded them ln the property would
reach tbe climax of their ambition and
then disappear. That, at any rate, ls
exactly  what happenod.
The Page family acquired the property from Henry VIII., and gradually
through centuries enlarged It Into Its
presenl vast dimensions. Then in 1829
the family died out. Five families of
tho Pages had owned land In various
parts of the present estate, but In the
end all fell into the hands of Henry
Page. He died in 1829, and left no
lii'lrs The/estate passed Into the hands
of trustees.
Under the old rules of feudal tenure
dating from ihe time when all land was
held from the crown, estates of Inheritance for want of an heir revert to the
crown. Under this law of escheat still
holding good, the crown's right to ownership of the Page estate is now declared. As the revenue of the crown
InndB now belong to the national exchequer, thiB declaration means that
the nation enters at last Into legal
ownership of the Page estate. Why the
claim has lain so long in abeyance will
no doubt appear during the select committee's Inquiry.
ln lhe Interval of nearly 80 years
since the death of tho last of the Pages
it Is not surprising that the question
of titles to various parts of the estate
has become exceedingly complicated.
Portions of Iho estate havo been constantly sold, ond In several caBes the
title of the vendors has boen challenged
���In one case at least, succssfully,
Stanmore Orange, which ls on the north
of the estate, being withdrawn from
sale aftor Its auction had boen announce*. .
The far-away confiscation of a nuns
priory in tho days of the Reformation
is thus still perplexing the holders of
property in the district. For instance,
tho Hev. John Clifford and Ihe West-
bourne Pnrk trustees, who recently acquired a plot of land���at full value���
for thu extension of their chapel, now
learn with amazement that It Is part
of tho Page estate.
In other cases, however, parties to
the salo have been well aware of the
difficulty of title, nnd It has been taken
Into cunBlderatlon of the price.
Five main lines of railway���the Midland, London & Northwestern. Metropolitan, Oreat Central and Great **.*-, ost-
orn���run through the Page ostntc. and
two of these, the London & Northwestern nnd the Metropolitan, have pad
large Bums Into courl. owing to their

Oermany Oas Nothing to
Gain by War
Press Expresses Bitterness Ota Result of British  Diplomacy-
Must Keep Russia Aloof.
Berlin, May 3.���In the Reichstag today several' speakers suggested to
Chancellor Von Buelow that Oermany
should take no part ln the discussion
of the limitation of armaments at the
Hague peace conference.
Von Buelow, ln reply, said that Germany did not object to letting other
powers discuss the matter, but Germany would hold aloof. He referred to
the recommendation of the first peace
conference that the powers study tbe
question of limitation of armaments.
"Germany," he added, "has complied
with this recommendation, but has not
found a formula which takes Into consideration the great diversity ln the
geographical economy and military positions of the various states which
would be calculated to remove those
diversities and serve as a basis for a
The chancellor then remarked:
"Germany's abstention from the discussion of the question dues not mean
tbat she cherishes a secret desire for
war or that she ls actuated by military
ambition of otber selfish motives.
"Other powers feel the same way as
Germany regarding the limitation proposition and many friends of peace in
France, Great Britain, Italy und the United States think It would not serve the
cause of peace to give way to Illusions
and lose sight of realities. Germany
hitherto bas Becured peace by keeping
in readiness for war. This policy has
been proved to be a wise one. We
never once misused our military
strength and never will. Many persons
have advised us to take part in the discussion of the limitation of armaments
ln order to show Germany's good will,
since nothing can come of the matter
anyway. But Germany's peaceable policy has been a sufficient answer to all
the aspersions which may have been
made. Germany does not wish to prevent other powers from discussing the
limitation of armaments. If some practical result Is reached by such a discussion, Oermany will conscientiously examine whether lt harmonizes with the
protection of her peace, with her na*
tional interests and with her special sit
The chancellor called attention to the
fact that his position ln the matter
under discussion was endorsed by
speakers representing all the parties in
the house and added:
"Supported by this unanimity, Germany will show by her actual courBe
at The Hague that Bhe sincerely favors
all efforts calculated to practically promote peace, civilization and humanity."
Loud applause greeted the chancellor
when he concluded.
During the debate on Germany's foreign relations, Andrew Carnegie's recent reference to the decision between
war and peace being In the bands of
Emperor William was criticized and
classed as a distortion of facts.
Berlin, May 3.��� The Hamburger
Nachrichten, formerly the organ of
Prince Bismarck, and still representing
the views of ft large section of Junkers
and the military purty, has a bittor article complaining of the perslsteut efforts
of British diplomacy, assisted or inspired by King Edward, to Isolate Germany from the n-st of Europe and-to
draw a ring ot hostile powers around
Two powers, It says, must be considered bb having been In a special degree
Influenced by England against Oermany,
namely, Italy and Russia. With Italy,
Britain has been thoroughly successful,
and reliance can no longer bo placed on
her by Oermany in any conflict where
British Interests aro Involved, but with
Russia lt Is different, and there Ib still
time to prevent efforts being made ln
London to come to an understanding
with the Czar's government.
It Is absolutely necessary, says tlie
Bismarcklan organ, that German diplomacy does all tn lta power to hinder an
understanding between Britain and Russia, and It expresses the hope thnt
Prince Buelow Is now convinced of the
error ot his former belief that an understanding between these powers ls ln the
Interests of the German Empire.
At one time, says tho paper, Germany
wns nblo to rely on a rising in the British Mohammedan Empire should England got into trouble, but since tbe
Algeciras fiasco the Oriental nations
would seem to have lost confidence In
Germany, and would probably remain
quiet should war at any time break out
between Britain and Oermany. lf,
therefore, danger of a serious character
Is to be avoided, an understanding be-
tween Britain and Russia muat be prevented at all costs. There is no other
German Papers Think American Tour
Can't  Hurt  Prince.
Berlin, May 2.���The report that tbe
Kaiser's fifth son. Prince Oscar, la to
visit the United States, Is denied, but
lt is understood that hie fourth son,
Prince August Wllhelm, may tour ln
Tbe newspapers ai ��� divided as to the
desirability of sucli a tour. Tnd
Deutsche Tageszeltung declares that
the idea Is only ludicrous, because the
prince conld only be Influenced for evil
by coming In contact with rich parvenus ln "the land of machines and dollars." Tbe Berliner Tageblatt favors
the tour, and declares that wealthy parvenus will be no new experience to the
prince, for plenty of them are to be
found ln Oermany.
Cecil Bourke died ln the hospital
at Kaalo last night at 8 o'clock. Dr.
Robinson, of Kaslo, Dr. Oreen, of
Cranbrook, and Dr. La Bau, of Nelson, were all present, but could do
nothing to s��R�� nim. The shock
to hla whole system from the accident recorded yesterday waa too
great to permit or recovery.
Cecil McWilliam Bourke waa
born ln Pueblo, Colorado, on Oct
29th, 1885, and was therefore only
In his 22nd year. Two years ago
he came to Kootenay with hla
brother, Crozier W. Bourke, and
took up fruit land at Thirteen-Mile
Point, where hu since lived. He
was a frequent visitor to the city
and was universally liked and respected. He had lately taken hla
first degree ln the Masonic order,
Hopes of his recovery were entertained until about a quarter to
eight last night when lt became apparent that tbe sufferer waa sinking. He breathed hla last a few
minutes after eight.
The body will be brought to Nelson on tbe steamer Kokanee tonight. Tbe funeral will take place
tomorrow morning at 8 o'clock to
the Church of Mary Immaculate,
where the services will be read by

Restriction Withdrawn.
Victoria, April  30.
Editor Dally Canadian,
Dear Sir:���In reference to my letter
ot the 24th Inst., addressed to you, it
haa been brought to my attention that
the limitation of 3,000 words will not
permit of the various subjects being
treated as fully as circumstances would
seem to demand, therefore, I would be
very much pleased If you will kindly
announce through your columns that
there ls no limitation as to length.
Faithfully yours.
Up-To-Date    French   Socialist    Want*
Title Deeds Burned���"No Army
and No Country."
Paris, May 3.���M. Herve, the leader
of the antl-Imperialists, wbo already
has been Imprisoned bere for his faith
of "no army and no country," has lately crossed swords With M. Jaures. He
finds fault with the Socialist leader for
not going far enough, and in his newspaper, La Guerre Soclale, gives us nn
Idea of Ideal which, to say the least,
is sufficiently disconcerting.
This teacher of antl-patrlotlsm declares that the commune will be child's
play to that which he promises us. If
the revolutionaries are masters of the
situation for only 2-4 hours, he says, all
the title deeds of property stored In the
offices of notaries, municipal and departmental, archives and private banks
will be burned.
How Is this happy state of things
to be brought about? By trade union-
Ism, replies M. Herve, by Intensifying
the antl-mtlltary propaganda, without
wblch, he adds, "our next Insurrection
and general strike will be doomed to

Serious Riots Occur at
Hindoo Residents of Ponjab City
Attempt Rising���Suppressed
if Police and Cavalry.
Allahabad, British India, May 3.���
Serious anti-European riots have occurred at Rawalpindi, Punjab. A Hindu
mob burned two bungalows, pillaged
the mission church, looted the post offloe, burned a garage and all the motor
ears In lt, destroyed the plant of the
house and smashed the windows of the
residences of many Europeans. Armed
police eventually regained the upper
hand and dispersed the rioters. The
town is now patrolled by a squadron of
the Tenth Hussars. The outbreak ls attributed to the incendiary Influence of a
number of well-known agitators, who
bave been making speeches throughout
the Punjab, and who are also held responsible for tbe recent outbreak at Lahore.
Rawalpindi is ia a fortified town ot
tbe Punjab, capital of the Rawalpindi
division and district. It la altuated 47
milea from Attock, an important strategic point on the Indus, and haa a population of about 90,000.
C. P. R. Will Drive Curving Tunnels to
Avoid Heavy Grades.
Calgary, May 3.���By mean* of two
curving tunnels driven through the
mountains on each side of the Kicking
Horse river a abort distance to the east
of Field and the -construction of three
bridges, the C. P. R. intends to do away
with the "Big Hill" grade at a cost of
approximately $600,001). The work Is to
be commenced thla summer and rushed
to completion. Tenders have been received for the work, which la no mean
undertaking, and the contract will likely be awarded within the next two or
three weeks.
This grade, which has been a thorn
In the side of railway officials ever
since the road waa built through the
Rocky mountains, lies on the main line
between Field and Hector. The distance covered by the line between these
two points Is only seven miles, but the
grade averages over four and a half per
cent. So bard Is the uphill haul that
on heavy loads extra locomotives are
always used, and tbe evidence of the
strenuous pull lies ln the right-of-way
beside the track in the shape of cinders
several feet deep which have been shot
out of the stacks of countless locomotives as they have labored up the big
grade.. On the down grade engineers
are always extra careful.
Colonial   Office    Refuses    to   Reopen
Jamaica Trouble.
London, May 3.���In giving definite
final refusal to furnish the house with
further correspondence exchanged between the ex-governor of Jamaica, Sir
Alexander Swettenham, and the colonial office the under secretary for the
colonies, Mr. Churchill, stated ln the
House of Commons this afternoon that
the only point upon which fault was officially found with Sir Alexander was
in regard to the propriety of his letter
to Rear Admiral Davis.
The propriety of the governor's action ln dispensing with the Bervices of
tho American naval contingent was
never called Into question and therefore to set forth the governor's reasons
for bo doing would not serve any useful
purpose but rather the reverse.
Mr. Churchill was asked to publish
Rear Admiral Davis' letter to Rear Admiral Evans In regard to the Swetten-
hm Incident, which the questioners In-
tlmated, entirely exonerated Swettenham of the charge of having quarrelled
with Davis but the under secretary
pointed out that It obviously was not
within the province of the British government to publish letters exchanged
between officers of the United States
Deadly Oas Stove.
New York, May 3.���John McCracken,
aged 72 years, and his son William, 30
years old, were  found  dead  In their
apartment   ln   West 48th street last
night. Oas waa escaping from a store
ln their room and both apparently had
been asphyxiated. The younger man
waa a salesman in a Broadway departmental store and his father had been
for some time an Inmate of the Masonic

Fatal Powder Explosion.
Hong Knng, May 3.���Great, destruction of life and property waa -caused at
Canton yesterday evening by the explosion of a gunpowder magazine.
Twenty-one bodies have already been
recovered from the ruins. Hundreds of.
persons were Injured.
Fifteen buildings were rased and over
100 others were wrecked. A section,
200 feet long, of tbe massive city wall
was thrown down. The historical
many-storeyed pagoda escaped with
slight injury. The officials and staffs
of the hospitals are doing their best to
succor the sufferers. In the Shammie
suburbs, where the foreigners live, a
terrific shock caused by the explosion
was felt but the residents were unharmed.
Labor Dispute Added to Trouble Over
Fuel Shortage���Other Newa
of Qrand Forks.
Orand Forks, May 2.���To hare hla
arm cut completely off Just above tha
elbow by a small circular saw of a wood
sawing machine about 3 o'clock yeaterday afternoon, waa the awful experience of James Stewart, a young man of
this place. It seems tbat the victim of
this accident by some mishap stumbled
and fell against the saw with the result
that ln an Instant hla arm waa severed.
He was at once taken to the Cottage
hospital for treatment. A peculiar
feature about thla accident 1s that the
Injured man does not seem to auffer
from the loss of the arm, the shock not
affecting his nervea In the least.
Yesterday the Oranby smelter blew
out all the furnaces and only'watchmen
are now employed at the big plant,
wblch a few hours ago was a veritable
hive of activity. It la unofficially stated
that whether the strike ia aettled or
not the plant will remain Idle (or at
least three weeks' time. There alao appears to be some difficulty between tbe
employees and the company, the men
wanting $3 a day for eight hours' work,
while it Is claimed that the oompany
will only pay S3 for a day of nine
hours, making just one hour's difference between them. While there la little doubt that the shortage of coke ls
tbe prime factor ln tbe plant closing
down, still the present difference between the men and the company cannot by any means be overlooked..It ta
alao reported that the Oranby company
ls most anxious to get rid of a few agitators among thetr employees who are
continually trying to create dissensions.
The work of track laying la now being carried on by the Kettle Valley Line

Sensational Cooflktinj Evidence ia
Case of HcKflaan. Wheeler t
���Conspiracy Alk-fcl
The spring assizes took a sensational
tun thia morning just before the luncheon recess. A witness, John Paterson,
subpoenaed for the plaintiff but called
by the defence, admitted having disobeyed the court by remaining within
hearing of the evidence, was summarily
sentenced to three months' Imprisonment for the act of contempt
As on former daya of tbe now celebrated trial of McMillan vs. Wheeler,
tbe court room was crowded, the audience Including aeveral ladles.
When court resumed thia morning the
examination of O. W. McBride was re-
Mr. McBride stated that he had always understood that Wheeler wanted
1100,000 clear tor tha Krao, and that
neither McMillan, aw any one els*
could hare a commission on a sale for
that amount He remembered alao that
Wheeler waa explicit abont refusing to
tie up tbe property. He. McBride, expected no commission. He understood
that McMillan's Interest ended with tbe
failure of the deal he had tried to negotiate.
A. D. Wheeler was then called for the
defence. He outlined briefly the history of the Krao from 1884 to 1906.
When he struck rich ora UrJWPOt IMS
he made lt public ln Alnsworth and
Nelaon. He waa then approached personally and by letter by a great number of people who wanted to handle it.
Hia reply to all waa that he wanted
1100,000 clear, and would not tie lt up
for any period for leas than 1100 a day.
Ha met McMillan ln the Wood-Vallance
company'a store on Sept. 3rd. McMillan
waa sure he could aell tha Krao, and
wanted an option. After many propoa-
als and refusals witneaa finally promised that lt McMillan wired that be had
a buyer and waa starting for Alnsworth.
lt would be held for hlm. That waa the
nearest approach to an option he had
glren on It ���
After McDowell and Winchell had
met him In' the Strathcona and declined
to deal that night Wheeler waa -standing at the foot of the stairs, with one
foot on the stair about to ascend, Mc-
millan called to him. and aaked lf he
might understand that he, McMillan,
still bad the handling of the property.
Wheeler replied that he had not unleaa
he would pay (100 a day for tt. There
was no further conversation.
The nearest seat at the writing table,
to where he waa standing, from which
Stubbs said he beard him speak waa at
least 12 teet away.
On cross-examination Mr. Wheeler adhered to all his statements. He aald
that McMillan's statements were nearly all false. Mrs. Wheeler testified that
she knew nothing of any option given
to any one on the Krao.
John Paterson waa then called. He
stated tbat he had pretended to Join a
conspiracy with McMillan to manufacture evidence for the purpoae of thla
case, that he bad no dishonest Intention, and had In fact kept Wheeler's,
solicitors Informed.
To Mr. Taylor the witness admitted
that he had, after witnesses were excluded from the court, remained within
hearing on the stain.
The court Instructed the registrar to
summon the sheriff. He then required
his confession again, and said:
"The public must understand that an
order of the court muat be obeyed. I
commit you to the common gaol for a
period of three months."
After noon adjournment Paterson returned to the stand ln the custody ot
the sheriff.
The court observed: "Witness, I don't
want you to misunderstand. If you
choose to play private detective In the
manner you have described, I am not criticising you. It la solely on account of
the offence to which you pleaded guilty,
disobedience to an order of the court
that I have punlabed yon."
Paterson was again examined hy Mr.
Maedonald. He stated that In hla presence McMillan asked W. L. Spry to approach O. W. Steel and Intimate that It
would be worth $1,000 to him to hare
heard a certain conversation.

The C'-uIonfal Conference, now become the Imperial Conference, was not
expected to make any unanimous recommendations on the subject of trade
relations or niutuaj concessions in regard to them.
That hope, if ever entertained by any,
was precluded on this occasion by tbfl
circumstance of a Liberal "Free Wood"
government's being in power in the
mother country.
The tariff policy of a country is, and
must be, governed by expediency when
it is not Interfered with by prejudice
In the United Kingdom for the la*'.
60 years Free Trade, instead of being
.considered a matter of sober policy baa
become an article of faith. The protection policy of the Younger Pitt, and of
his pupils who succeeded him in tbfl
government of Hritain, the supremacy
of the Hritish navy which secured
for the country almost a monopoly
of the world's carrying trade.
and tbe undisputed niperority of
Hritish manufactures, all conspired
to give the I'nited Kingdom
such a start in the world's race, that
now, after (Jo years of unfair competition and discrimination, the lead is not
yet lost though Germany and the United States are drawing near, by virtue
of their freedom from economic super-
Btitions and their steady adherence to
a policy of protection.
The United Kingdom may yet for u
while retain its commercial and Industrial primacy in spite of its self-imposed
disadvantages. Hut for many of die col-
onles protective tariffs are a necessity.
In their long struggle for ofllce the
Canadian Liberals also exalted "Free
Trade as they have It In England" into
-an article of faith. Sir Wilfrid Laurler
declared "I will never rest until I have
wiped out the last vestige of the Iniquitous system of protection."   In spite
of bl< .-illy rhetoric Sir Wilfrid has for
eleven years been sane enough to leave
practically unchanged the wise trade
policy of Sir John Macdonald.
But the Industrial and commercial
conditions of all the colonies are not
the same. For some, the Transvaal for
instance, where many things must be
imported and where physical conditions
will save- home markets for the local
food producers, obviously the best system is free imports.
It was the weakness���the only weakness���of Joseph Chamberlain's Imperial
policy that he built his grand conception of a united empire on an utterly
materialistic basis. The sentiment of
kinship and loyalty is not created nor
even strengthened by financial advantage.
Canada stands committed by her
present rulers to the mistake of Joseph
Chamberlain. A preference was offered
to Hritish imports in Canadian markets,
and it is intimated that until the motherland reciprocates in some way, the
daughter cau do no more.
That is an utterly false position. A
tariff league of the Empire may be a
possibility of the future. At present It
is outside the sphere of practical
But what cannot be too much insisted
upon, is that the offer of a trifling preference does not absolve Canada from
other duties, or justify a passive attitude on such questions as Imperial de
At the deferred annual meeting of
the 20,000 Club, held a few weeks ago,
peal emphasis was laid by all speakers, and quite properly so, on the ne-
C aaity for improving and beautifying
the city as ranch as possible before tbe
tourist season begins this year. Tbe
Improvement of streets, painting of
buildings and clearing of the water
front are things that require both time
and money. Hut there Is one thing that
can be done at once and without expense. The streets may be kept decently clean. Their present condition is
a crying disgrace. We do not wish to
show Impatience In urging haste. We
concede that city servants are doing the
best possible with the facilities afforded them. But there are a few things
for which no excuse can be pleaded.
The bill board nuisance is bad enough
when It is confined to unused buildings
er fences on side streets. But within
tbe last few days an outrageous sign
board has been erected on Baker
street near the corner ot Kooteuay,
which is an offence against every taste.
Nelson can never be made clean or decent while every vandal is at liberty to
disfigure it.
The Right Hon. Winston Churchill.
M. P., under secretary of state for the
colonies, was recently sworn of the
Privy Council. Winston's mother was
an American lady and therefore he is
an object of Interest to readers of
American despatches. That circumstance has Inspired an American press
correspondent to advance the claim that
Winston has "brokun a record ' by being (be youngest commoner that ever
sat fn the Hritish privy council.'1 Several Canadian pftpflV have printed the
article. Of course it is ridiculously inaccurate. Mr. Churchill Is now in his
���_Uth year. William Pitt, the younger,
became premier of Great Hritain, and
therefore of course a member of the
privy council, at the age of 23. It is
not strange that an American writer?
enthusiasm for a young Hritish publicist
who is half American should lead him
Into error, but one Cs surprised that
the well-Informed editor of a Canadian
newspaper should not immediately perceive the mistake.
In a letter to the Times of recent
date, a writer remarked "Mr. Carnegie
will do well to endow a chair of contemporary history for his own instruction." A speaker in the German Reichstag more recently classifies Mr. Carnegie's remarks as distortion of tacts.
Mr. Carnegie, in his reported speeches
and published articles, has so far served
only to demonstrate the fact that ability
to accumulate money does not by any
means imply the possession of intelligence. His opinions on politics and society are of no more value than those
of any of his poor Homestead employees. Mr. Carnegie's dollars may be
useful; he, himself, Is a decided

Such was the statement of Rev. Daniel Norman, a missionary of the Methodist church, who is now home on furlough, in reference to the statements
lately appearing in newspapers as to
the feverish excitement of the people,
arsenals working overtime, etc. "Go

The case has occupied thc Mexican

of the most extraordinary In the criminal annals of Ihe republic. The two
victims of the conspiracy were a man
named Devers, decoyed from El Passi,
and a man named Mitchell, said to be a
Iiulf-brother of Devers.
The prime mover in the plot was
Richardson, whose real name ls Hulbert.
He was a Rochester lawyer who ran

another Rochester lawyer who followed
him later. With the help of Dr. Harle,
of Chihuahua, they poisoned their victims with strychnine after having Insured their lives ln a New York com-
pany for (25,000.
After the murders the gang, except
Harle, moved to Texas. Suspicion was
aroused, and a detective was sent to
Texas. Posing as a lumber, merchant,
he worked Into intimacy with them. He
took part In another plot to steal $50,-
000 and had himself arrested with the
others. lleBldes the men there were
two women mixed up In tlle affair.
.The discovery of the Insurance plot
was quite accidental. In the fall of
1902, while looking over some Mexican
policies, the solicitor-general of tbe insurance company in New York noticed
a peculiar coincidence ln two Chihuahua claims. The claims came through
the same agent, Richardson, were certified by the sami! doctor, Harle, and in
both cases Dr. Harle bad been the examining physician. The men had both
died after short illnesses. One of them,
Harry Mitchell, Insured for $15,000, had
died on February 11. The other, James
Devers, who was Insured for $10,000
on February 22. Yet tbe Mitchell claim
was presented in February, and the
Devers' claim not until July. In both
cases the insured had no otber relative
than the beneficiary. In the first case
the beneficiary was Hulbert's wife; In
the second esse it was William Mitchell,
who posed aa Devers' half brother.
Upon Investigation it was shown that
the men had died and been buried aB
stated. It wasn't a case of "burying the
rocks on the company." Then tbe check
for the Devers claim came back to the
New York bank. It was endorsed by
C. T. Richardson, otherwise Hulbert.
The other bad been previously paid to
his wife, the murdered Harry Mitchell's
After the crowd had removed to Dai-
Ins, Texas, a detective named Grey was
sent to Dallas in the guise of a lumber
merchant. He succeeded In meeting
Hulbert and after the two had become
imitate Hulbert broached a scheme to
cheat the insurance company out of
$50,000. He said he had experience.
Detective Gray proposed that they insure Gray's brother-in-law for $50,000
as a beginning. A detective named
Evans was Imported by Gray as his
brother-in-law. When the scheme had
been thoroughly worked up and all the
preliminary steps taken the whole
crowd, including Gray, was arrested. A
fellow-detective of his had already overheard Mitchell and Hulbert scheming to
kill off Gray. By accident in the prison,
at El Paso, Mitchell discovered what
Gray really was. ,
Mitchell at once went into a sham
cataleptic fit that lasted two months.
Medical experts watched him, and declared that he was shamming. But all
the usual tests failed. He paid not the
slightest attention to needles stuck half
an inch into his foot He was dropped
Into a tank of cold water and sank to
the bottom stiff. His teeth were clenched and he was fed on milk Introduced
through his nose by a glass tube. Finally
the detectives hit upon the idea of mixing whiskey with the milk. The man
became drunk, jumped from his bed,
and cursed at everybody in sight.
Finally Dr. Harle, who was still in
Chihuahua, was induced to cross the
border and was arrested. He was
forced into a confession about his con.
nection with the two Chihuahua claims.
This was all the detectives needed. The
proceedings against Mitchell and Hulbert on the Dallas plot were dropped
snd all three were extradited to this
place and tried for murder. With
abundant money at their command the
conspirators fought the case step by
step, taking the case to the highest
courts of Mexico; With every twist and
turn known to the law exhausted there
now appears no hope of their escaping
death at the hands of the executioners.
