IN CELL AT TOMBS
Mrs. Ghadwick Unable to Give
NO PRIVILEGES AT PRISON
Warden Denies Request That Maid
Be Allowed to Remain With Her,
and Will Keep the Woman
NEW YORK. Dec S. Mrs. Cassle L.
Chad wick is tonight occupying: one of the
scantily-furnished cells in the Tombs.
After a fruitless search all day for bail,
lir attorneys gave up the fight tonight,
and Philip Carpenter, her chief counsel,
stood in the corridor of the Federal
Building at 9 o'clock when United States
Marshal Henkel threw open the double
doors of his -office agid led the woman out
trn her way to prison.
Mrs. Chadwick was wan. .tired' and al
most fainting. She made her way across
the hall to . the . elevator, leaning heavily
cn the Marshal's arm and .that of her
eon. Emll. Behind -them came her nurse,
Freda Swenson, and Deputy .Marshal
Kennedy. The.. party passed through a
double ..row of curious jieople to a car
riage which-was In waiting on the Broad
way side. They were driven directly to
the Tombs. Arriving there, Mrs. Chad
"wlck was half .carried -up the 'steps and
into the building. "Warden Flynn met the
party and after the' usual preliminaries
bad been attended to, the .woman asked
pennIsslon.-to -have her nurse, remain with
her. This- was -denied, the Warden say
ing she should have no privileges, not al
lowed to other prisoners.
Mrs. Chadwick gave a hand-bag and a
few trinkets to- the nurse, and. whispered
some instructions to her son. She was
then taken to the matron's room. She
asked to say-good night to her son, and
the lad eagerly rushed .to his mother and,,
wrapping his arms about her,' gave her
a long embrace. Then she was led away
to the Inner office, where her -pedigree
was taken and, she was assigned to a cell.
The son and 'nurse entered a carriage
and were driven to a hotel.
This has been a momentous day for
Mrs. Chadwick. It commenced with her
early departure from her hotel for the
Federal Building' and ended with her
Incarceration In the Tombs.
Held in $15,000 Bail.
In the interval she had been arraigned
beTore United States Commissioner
Shields and held In $15,000 bail, which
she was unable to furnish. All day long
lawyers representing her interests bad
sought in even quarter for someone
owning real estate In Manhattan who
would sign her bond, and the Marshal
"had, out of sympathy for the woman,
kept her in his office hours after she
should have been removed. The en
deavors of tho lawyers were unsuccessful,
rendering her imprisonment necessary.
To add to her cup of woe it was
learned tonight that a charge of forgery
would likely be made against the woman
in Ohio, based on the "Carnegie note and
other papers given as security for loans.
Efforts to get bail will continue tomor
row, although Mrs. Chadwick expressed
the desire tonight to go to Cleveland as
soon as possible. She said she would
voluntarily give out a statement tonight
wer It not for the contrary advice of
Mrs. Chadwick dined at 7 o'clock in
Marshal Henkel's office under conditions
In strange contrast to the manner In
which she lived In New York hotels.
When "Warden Flynn was seen, after
Mrs. Chadwick had arrived at the Tombs,
Will Be. Entirely Alone.
"Mrs. Chadwick will be placed In a cell
on the second tier of the prison. She
wilt be entirely alone on the tier, which
Is set apart from the other women Drl
oners. She Is a United States prisoner,
and will not be allowed associates in any
way. She will be entirely alone. To
morrow morning she will hae her meal
with the others, but durins the day she
will be compelled to remain alone.
"If she is 111, she will be attended by
the physician, Dr. Levin, whose duty is
to look after United States prisoners."
"When the Warden was asked as to her
pedigree, he replied:
"She gave her age as 51 years, said
she was born in the United States, not
specifying any state, and that she was
As,ked whether she would be allowed to
retain her medicine chest; he said:
"No prisoner Is allowed to have medi
cine except that which Is ordered by
physicians, and Mrs. Chadwick will be
no exception. She will be treated like
the other prisoners here."
FAINTS BEFORE CAMERAS.
Sudden Flash of Powder From Many
Machines Startles Mrs. Chadwick.
NEW YORK, Dec. 8. As Mrs. Chad
wick came Into the corridor to return to
the United States Marshal's office after
her arraignment, the battery of cameras
which had been set up outside the court
room door was turned upon her. The sud
den flash of the. powder ao startled Mrs.
Chadwick that she fainted and sank to
hr knoes on the corridor floor. She was
paved from falling by Marshal Henkel and
her son Emll. who supported her as she
continued down through tho. long line of
curious onlookers, who had crowded the.
corridors between the courtroom and the
A few minutes before 9 o'clock Mrs.
Chadwick came down from her apart
ments and prepared for the journey to the
Federal building. -She appeared to be Very
weak, and leaned heavily on the arm of
the United States Marshal. Before leav
ing the hQtel she was compelled to sit on
a couch in the hall and rest for a time.
On the way from the hotel to the Fed-,
eral building Mrs. Chadwick said to tho
Marshal who had her In charge:
"The time will comb when these people
will see that I am a very much maligned
and persecuted woman. When I think of
what I have .gone through in the past few
weeks I wonder that I am' not Insane.
Everybody has jumped on me, but I will
come out of this all right, and when I do
I will Issue a statement to the public that
will show how Innocent I have been."
Mrs. Chadwick later thanked the Mar
shal again for his courtesy to her and es
pecially for not putting her upon arrest
before, as she said, her lawyers had .told
her he could have done.
When Mrs. Chadwick was taken be
fore Commissioner Shields the crowd
was so great In the corridor that
it was impossible to pass, and Mrs.
Chadwick was taken through a series
of offices directly into the courtroom.
She "was supported by the Marshal and
her maid, -and walked slowly, almost
tottering, but a few steps into the
room, where she dropped into a chair,
amid a hundred or more newspaper
men. Mrs. Chadwick sat with her
head bowed in her hands, and did not
once look up.
Assistant District United States At
torney Baldwin formally presented the
case before Commissioner Shields, say
ing that on his Information and belief
other complaints would probably be
brought, but this specific case was the
only one he desired to bring at this'
He asked that a bond of 525,000 be
fixed In the case. Attorney Carpenter
asked that $10,000 be fixed, in view of
the fact that the principals whom she
Is charged "with aiding and abetting
were held In thai amount The Com
missioner fixed the amount at $15,000.
and the hearing was put over until
December 17, Ir." Carpenter agreeing
to that, with the. understanding :that
he have the privilege of another con
tinuance at that time, should he not be
prepared to go on with the case.
At the conclusion of the proceedings
occurred one of the most sensational
Incidents In connection with the case.
As Mrs. Chadwick was assisted to her
feet by the Marshal there was a stam
pede for the door;" led by the 50 or more
photographers who had been disap
pointed a quarter of an hour before,
when Mrs. Chadwick was one her way
to the courtroom.
. Shouts of "Order!'' "This' court is not
adjourned" and "Genlemen take seats,
or pass out," were unheeded; Deputy
Marshals were summoned, but they
were carried by the crowd out Into the
corridor, only to face a battery of pho
tographers. Luncheon was served to Mrs. Chad
wick and her maid' in the Marshal's
office, and she spent the early after
noon reclining- on a couch. Her maid
remained constantly at her side.

NEW YORK, Dec 8. Receiver
Lyons, of the Oberlin bank, which re
cently closed its doors, told a repre
sentative of the Associated Press to
night that he would leave for Cleve
land tomorrow morning, where crim
inal proceedings will be taken against
Mrs. Chadwick. He said he had been
in communication with Prosecutor Sul
livan, of Cleveland, today, and that
developments in the bank's case
against 'Mrs. Chadwick might be looked
'for. As to the exact nature of these
he declined to make a statement.
Asked If any communication had
been held with Mr. Carnegie here in
this city, he admitted that certain com
munications had been passed. Mr.
Lyons declined to go further into the
case, saying any statements would
come from Cleveland.
The Associated Press learned on the
best of authority, however, that In
the communications in New York today
between Mr. Carnegie and representa
tives of the Oberlin bank, Mr. Carnegie
denied absolutely that he had signed
the notes which have figured in the
case as the Carnegie notes, and denied
"he knows or ever saw Mrs. Chadwick.
The same authority said that the Ohio
proceedings would be in the nature of
action on the charge of forgery.
"Will anadditional warrant bo is
sued in Ohio for Mrs. Chadwlck's ar
rest?" he was asked.
"Yes; probably a number- of war
rants." "On what charges w.ill these war
rants be sworn out?"
"On the general .charge of forgery."
Inquiry was made as to whether the
charges of forgery would be based on
the Carnegie notes, and the reply was
made that they would be made on
these and soma other papers given as
security for loans.
The papers, other than the Carnegie
notes, have not appeared in the' case
heretofore, and as to what thgy. consist
of and whose signatures they .'bear he
would not say.
