Divers Engaged on Insistence of
American Consul, Who Believes
Husband Made Away With
In Manner Ilke Wife.
COMO. June 16. (Special.) The King's
Procurator today concluded his exami
nation of Spolatoff, held on suspicion of
being connected with the murder of Mrs.
Porter Charlton, and later refused to
confirm the prisoner's release.
The Procurator admitted that Spola
toff's complicity was not proved and
that there was no evidence to Justify his
Indictment; but the prisoner cannot be
freed without an order from the court,
which is not likely to be given before
Lake Como is thoroughly searched for
the body of Charlton.
It is practically certain that Spolatoff
will be released eventually. The police
are convinced that searching the lake will
not solve the mystery of Charlton's dis
appearance. It may lead to the discov
ery of the bloodstained clothes he wore
when It is thought he killed his wife.
Possibly Airs. Charlton's Jewels may be
. Trial In Contumacy Waits.
A so-called trial of Charlton In con-
tumacy cannot be started unless the ver.
I elon of double murder is absolutely ex
I eluded, and If bis body is not found In
! the lake the authorities will assume he
i has escaped and will hold the trial in his
; absence five or six months hence, thus
i preventing the operation of the statute
j of limitations rendering his arrest illegal
"ive years from now.
From the evidence collected it is as
leumed that Charlton murdered his wife
and a trial In contumacy will show the
result of the police Investigations and
convince the American authorities that
every effort has been made to solve the
mystery and punish the criminal.
Professional divers began today
,operatlons In Lake Como, In the hope
that If the waters conceal the body of
'Porter Charlton It would be recovered.
The divers were engaged by the gov
ernment on the insistence of Charles M.
Caughey, American Consul at Milan,
who holds to the theory that the person
or persons who murdered Mrs. Mary
Scott Castle Charlton and, placing her
body In a trunk, sunk It in the lake,
disposed In similar fashion of her hus
bond. Divers Create Stir.
The arrival today of the divers from
Genoa causer much excitement among
the peasants.
The interest in the case locally Is not
confined to these residents, and Sum
mer visitors throughout thiB , section.
Including a number of Americans, have
been attracted to the scene of the
tragedy. They gathered on the lake
shore in force today, hoping to wit
ness a solution of the mystery of
Charlton's disappearance.
It is not certain that the divers will
be successful in settling the yuestion,
because of the depth of the lake,, which
In spots Is 1000 feet. The belief Is
strong among many, including the po
lice, that Charlton is no won board a
steamer bound for New York.
Senate 'Passes Bill Retaliating in
Disposition of Sockeyes.
WASHINGTON, June 16. The bill
prohibiting the exportation of sockeye
alraon from the United States, except
when frozen, canned or salted, was
passed by the Senate today, but still
must receive the sanction of the House.
The bill, which was introduced by
Senator Piles, is a measure of retalia
tion against British Columbia, which
recently prohibited the exportation of
fresh Canadian salmon to Puget Sound
Great Sockeye Runs Intercepted by
Sound Kishermen.
SEATTLE. June 16. The sockeye pal
Dion is next to the Chinook salmon of
the Columbia, which Is far the best of
all, the king salmon of the country in
quality. The sockeyes are bom in the
Praser River and grow to maturity in
the ocean off Vancouver Island.
The adult salmon returning through
American waters to the Fraser River to
spawn, are caught in immense numbers
by the Washington fish traps, which last
year took such enormous numbers that
the Canadian canneries on the Fraser
were unable to get enough fish to keep
in operation.
Every third year a sockeye run occurs
which exceeds in numbers the migration
of any other salmon. During the run of
last Summer, the sockeyes sold for a
few cents apiece in Puget Sound cities,
and the canneries were unable to handle
all the fish that were taken.
Certain American trappers are alleged
to have sold trapped salmon to the Cana
dian canneries.
fOontinued From First Page.)
On the other hand, Mr. Hughes favored
the House bill because, he said, the
Senate bill compels the proposed states to
tie their own hands so as to deprive them
of the equality that should be accorded,
to all states.
Advocating the bill. Senator Smoot
said that even if both states were to be
Democratic, they should be admitted.
He believed that ultimately Arizona
would be Republican.
Mr. Hamilton, of Michigan, chairman
of the House committee on territories,
said he had no doubt now of the passage
of the statehood bill at this session of
Congress. He is confident that the House
will adopt the conference report. He
said there were some good features in
the bill put In by the Senate, for in
stance the educational requirement pro
vision; but that there were some features
that could be improved, the part relat
ing to the time when statehood is to
be effective being among them.
Under the bill as amended by' the Sen
ate it might be two and a half years be
fore the statehood law would become
operative, and the House conferees want
to shorten the time to the Spring of 1811.
