Chadwick Extradition
Warrant Refused.
Necessary Affidavit Has .Been
Forwarded to New York.
Officer From Cleveland Says He Has
Known the Accused for Years,
and Regrets the J&sk
Before Him.'
ALBANY, N. Y., Dec 26. Sheriff Barry,
of Cleveland, O., was refused an extradi
tion -warrant for Dr. Leroy S. Chadwick
at the executive chamber here this morn
Ins. The ground of refusal was that his
papers failed to prove that Dr. Chadwick
'was In the State of Ohio March 5, 1303.
when the forgeiy of the signature of An
drew Carnegie, In which he is accused of
having been concerned, with his wife, Cas
cie L. Chadwick. Is alleged to have been
committed. Sheriff Barry went on to New
Sheriff Barry decided not to try to cor
rect his papers now, but to go on to New
York and arrest Dr. Chadwlck and ar
range for his extradition afterward.
Before leaving for New York Sunday
the Cleveland Sheriff telegraphed to the
executive department here asking that his
papers be prepared so that there might be
no delay upon his arrival early -today.
"When the telegram was received Governor
Odell was at his home in Newburgh and
the message was given to his pardon
clerk. Judge Joyce immediately tele
phoned the Governor and received reply
from him to deliver the prisoner in case
the papers were properly drawn up.
Sheriff Barry called at the executive
chamber this morning and presented to
Judge Joyce the requisition papers signed
by Governor Herrlck, of Ohio, asking an
extradition warrant to enable him to take
his prisoner out of New York State.
When the Sheriff learned that his proof
was defective he concluded to telegraph
to have the necessary affidavits prepared
and sent to him at New York. He said
that it was a purely formal matter, and
that affidavits could be promptly obtained
showing that Dr. Chadwlck was In Ohio
on or about March, 1903.
The Ohio Sheriff left soon afterward for
New York, where he will wait for Dr.
Chadwlck's steamer, which Is expected
Wednesday. He will consult with New
York authorities regarding the best course
of procedure. Before leaving Sheriff Bar
ry said that while he was disappointed -at
not obtaining the requisition warrant at
this time, the failure would not delay him
to any appreciable extent.

Sheriff Barry Will Have Testimony
Against Dr. Chadwick.
NEW YORK, Dec 26. Sheriff Barry,
of Cleveland, reached New York this
afternoon from Albany and went to the
Hoffman House, where he will" remain
until the arrival of the steamship Pre
toria, which is bringing to this coun
try Dr. Leroy S. Chadwick, of Cleve
land, and his daughter. Miss Mary
Chadwick. Mr. Barry is not at all dis
concerted over his inability to obtain
the requisition papers from Governor
Odell which would permit him to take
Dr. Chadwlck to Ohio. In conversation
with a representative of the Associated
Press tonight the Sheriff said:
"I do not find any fault with Judge
Joyce in declining to issue the requisi
tion papers. "I realize that It is. neces
sary for him to act absolutely in ac
cordance with his Interpretation of the
law. I decided that It would be better
to have the matter straightened out in
Cleveland. Prosecutor Keeler has al
ready forwarded to me an affidavit giv
ing me the testimony before the grand
jury tending to show that Dr. Chadwick
was In Cuyahoga" County, Ohio, March
3. 1903, upon which date the alleged
crime was commited, and this affidavit
will be in my hands tomorrow morn
"With that in my possession I antici
pate no difficulty in getting the neces
sary papers.
"I am here on a sad errand, for I
have known Dr. Chadwlck many years
and our relations have been of the
rlcasantest nature. I shall do every
thing in my power to make his trying
situation as easy as possioie. x am
especially solicitous that Miss Chad
wick shall be spared any humiliation
'I understand that some of her rela
tives wilt meet her upon the arrival of
the steamer and make arrangements
for her future movements."
Mr. Barry said that Mrs. Chadwick Is
better than when she arrived at the
Jail in Cleveland, and that she is tak
Ing her troubles philosophically.
Believes Warrant Will Be Granted.
CLEVELAND, O Dec 26. County
Prosecutor Keeler. wnon shown the dis
patch from Albany, stating that Sheriff
Barry had beon refused an extradition
warrant for Dr. Chadwlck, said:
"The papers which Sheriff Barry carried
to Albany were In regular form, and I
cannot understand why the warrant re
quested has been refused. It is probably
a mere technicality, however, owing to
the difference in the laws of .New York
and Ohio. The requisition as Issued by
Governor Hcrrick explicitly states that
Dr. Chadwick is a fugitive from justice
In Ohio; that he has been Indicted by the
grand jury of this county on the charge of
forging and uttering a note for J3.000.000,
signed 'Andrew Carnegie"; that the crime
was committed in Cuyahoga County, O., in
March 5. 1903. and that the indictment is
sufficient in itself for placing Dr. Chad
wick on trial upon the charges made"
Mr. Keeler expressed the belief that the
extradition warrant would be eventually
granted by the New York authorities.
had been adduced before the grand
jury, 'tending, to show that Leroy S.
Chadwick was in this county on March 5,
1903. upon which date the alleged crime
was committed. Mr. Keeler subsequently
swore to this affidavit before n. notary
public, after which It was at once for
warded to Sheriff Barry at New York.
Moscow University Is Closed After
the Recent Disturbance.
ST. PETERSBURG, Dec 26. There
seems to be no evidence of a cessation
of the agitation in different parts of the
country In favor of the liberal reforms.
The situation Is most acute In Moscow,
where the university is closed and the
students and other societies are in a con
stant state of ferment.
It develops that the social revolutionary
party in Moscow, before the demands of
December 18 and 19, Issued a proclama
tion condemning to death Grand Duke
Sergius and Police Master Trepoff, If dur
ing those demonstrations there should
be a recurrence of "the police brutalities
which were witnessed In St. Petersburg."
Subsequently the students decided not
only to cease attending school, but demon
strate on the occasion of the burial of
the victims of rioting of December 18 and
19; to ally themselves with the labor
movement and take up arms In their own
defense They also asked the professors
of the university to back up their de
mands. As a result, the latter obtained'
permission to make a searching Inquiry
into all the circumstances.
General Kuropatkin, according to an
Interview with Prince Dolgorousky, head
of the Moscow Red Cross detachment at
the front, has added his voice in favor
of broader activity of the Zemstvoi This
may be fraught with immediate signifi
cance later.

order at Present.
ST. PETERSBURG, Dec 26. While the

darme wounded.
There also has been much rioting at
Bakhout, where C000 conscrips pillaged a
few houses and fruit stalls. No one, how
ever was killed.

American Attaches Coming Home.
ST. PETERSBURG-, Dec. 26. Lieuten
ant-Colonel Walter S. Schuyler and Cap
tain Carl RIchmann, the United States
military attaches with General Kuropat-
kin's army, have arrived here, making
the journey from Mukden to St. Peters
burg In 24 days. After completing their
formal calls they will leave Immediately
for Washington. Both officers have per
sonally seen much fighting, having been
present at the battles of Vafanagow,
Liao Yang and Shakhe. They express
satisfaction with the treatment accorded
them, but as they left the front under
pledge not to reveal anything, they con
sider it would be Improper to discuss the
military situation.
United States Held Up as Example.
ST. PETERSBURG, Dec 26. The reac
tionary Grazhdanln publishes a remark
able article against the bureaucracy, de
claring that it was responsible for the
French Revolution, the fallen Roman
Empire and the decay of China, whereas
Japan has regretted because, while It
overthrew the hureaucracy, It retained
the principle of the sacred power of the
soyereign. The paper expresses the hope
that the bureaucracy .is seeing its last
days in Russia and adds:
"Bureaucracy is more or less present
in all countries except the United States,
where the laws safeguard the liberties
of the people to the fullest extent, giving
equal opportunities."

Butte Butcher's Wife Missing.
BUTTE, Mont. Dec. 25. W. J. Bodno,
of Butte, a wealthy butcher, believes that
the remains of a woman found dead on
Cutler Mountain, near Colorado Springs,
Colo., two weeks ago, were those of his
wife, who eloped from here six weeks
ago. About the time she left a former
employe of the husband, who had
been discharged, also disappeared. The
relations of this man and Mrs. Bodno
were alleged to have been Improper, and
Bodno Is now suing for divorce.
Upon leaving, the woman drew $1300
from the bank and took it with her. She
also took two small children. Bodno has
made every effort to trace the latter, but
without success. He and the missing
woman had been to Colorado Springs and
had often talked of the beauty of Cutler
Mountain. This and the similarity of the
dental work on the jaw of the corpse
found, to that done for his wife a few
days before she fled, leads Bodno to be
lieve his wife has been murdered. Bodno

Hard Lines for Old Drunkards.
NEW YORK, Dec 26. Arrest, Instead of
a comfortable cot, will be the lot after
January, of the several thousand habitual
or occasional drumcards who in the course
of the year seek Bellevue Hospital for
treatment and use the Institution as a
handy place to sleep off their sprees.
Preliminary to the scheme of disposing
of the list of alcoholic patients Is a state
ment that a detail of police will be on
duty day and night at the hospital. When
a drunkard appears as a candidate for
the alcoholic ward his pedigree will be ex
amlned. If found to be an old customer,
he will be arrested and taken In charge
by the city police department. By this
business method the officials of the Belle
vue Hospital propose to reduce the con
stant overcrowding In the alcoholic de
partment. There are often 70 patients
there, and there are only places for 25.
