GRAND JURY IS TO ACT According . to Prosecutor Hunt the Case Against Embezzler and Man Who Profits With Him Is Complete-- Women Not Involved. CrNCINNATI, Nov. 9. Alleged black mailers of Charles !." Warriner, ex-local treasurer of the Big Four Railroad Company, accused of embezzling 1643,000, will be dealt with by the state authorities. County Prosecutor Hunt stated today that tie has investigated charges made by Warriner e.gainst a man and a woman and that he Would proceed against them if he were able to collect sufficient evi dence. In the meantime, apparently well founded reports maintain that the War riner defalcations ere far in excess of the sum mentioned by Vice-President Harris, of New Tork, and that they may exceed $1,000,000 and may possibly reach 2,000,000. Amount Continually Grows.

When that sum was raised to more than $500,000 speculation became rife and It is practically assured now that the total embezzlement will reach a record-breaking figure. Whatever may be the culpability of per sons connected with Warriner, it appears that-as far as the railroad officials are concerned they have no Intention of pro ceeding against other than the defaulting treasurer.

"I believe Mr. Warriner's statement," Isald the attorney, "that he has been blackmailed, but we have only his word for it, and we cannot act on that. That is for the state authorities to do if they choose." The facts have been given to Prosecutor Hunt and will be brought before the grand jury- According to Mr. Hunt there is a perfect case against both Warriner and the man who, it is alleged, was the chief participant In the profits of the em- ( Concluded on Page Expected 7 00 Armed Warriors Will Make Effort to Rescue Their Imprisoned Chiefs.

COMET'S TAIL TO HIT US Diffused Light Will Be Only Effect, Say Scientists. PRINCETON, N. J., Nov. 9. (Spe cial.) Mother Earth may have the ex perience next May of passing through the gaseous tail of a comet, according to an interview granted tonight by As sistant Professor Henry M. Russell, Ph. D., of the astronomical department of Princeton University. He hastened to ex plain, however, that no deleterious phy sical effects were to be anticipated from Halley's comet and that the electrical or magnetic effects of the comet's passage would probably be detected by the most delicate instruments only. "If we pass through the tall of the comet," said Dr. P.ussell, "the effect will be a diffused light, for the particles mak ing up the. tall f'f a comet reflect some light. The comet will probably be a fine spectacle. During the week after pass ing, it will be clearly visible to the naked eye in the evening. The comet is awaited with acute scientific Interest because it will be possible to tell by means of the spectroscope what it Is made of."
