PROXY IS CAPTURED
Forger Cannot Be Extradited
but Japanese Promise They
Will Prosecute Him.
SUBSTITUTE IS SET FREE
Theory of Remarkable Escape Is That
Grimes Got Custodian Drunk
and Delivered -Drugged Sailor
In His Own Place. .
BAN FRANCISCO. June IS. Peter A.
Grimes, convicted forger, who la be
lieved to have drugged Albert Johann
en in a. Nagasaki saloon and sub
stituted Johannsen, a Norwegian sailor,
for himself Just before his transfer
tinder guard to the transport Sheridan,
has been apprehended near Nagasaki
by the Japanese authorities and is now
In custody, according to information re
ceived from Washington by United
States District Attorney Preston to
night. Johannsen, unable to speak English
and explain himself, was brought here
as Grimes, and had served two days
of Grimes' three-year term in San
Quentln penitentiary before the discov
ery of Grimes' daring escape was made.
Victim at Once Set Free.
After the full facts came to light
yesterday a writ of habeas corpus -was
filed for Johannsen's release and when
the case came before Judge Dooling
in the United States District Court to
day the Norwegian was set free Im
mediately. Technically Johannsen is free on his
own recognizance and his formal writ
of release was made returnable June
27, but the Federal authorities are con
vinced of his innocence.
The news of Grimes' capture was re
ceived by Preston from the Depart
ment of Justice at Washington, which
had learned it through the State De
Japan Will Prosecute.
The State Department received mes
sages early today from the United
States Consuls at Shanghai and
Nagasaki confirming the substitution
story and later news of Grimes' arrest.
Preston was told that Grimes could
not be extradited, but that the Japa
"nese government had given assurances
that it would prosecute the forger.
Preston was requested to gather all
possible evidence from Johannsen and
forward it to the Japanese authorities
The theory of Grimes' escape is that
when he was in charge of a deputy
marshal at Nagasaki he got the dep
uty drunk, and then, picking up Johann
sen in a saloon, gave the sailor a
stupefying drug and himself delivered
Johannsen over to the officers of the.
Sheridan as the prisoner.
I. W. W..N0T CONCILIATORY
Official Says Arbitration and Media
tion Arc Rejected as Useless.
NEW YORK, Juno 18. Edward
Zurcher, secretary and treasurer of the
Industrial Workers of the World, ex
pounded the beliefs of that organiza
tion before the Federal Industrial Com
mission, which today held its last
meeting in this city.
He said that the leaders of. the 1913
strike among the Paterson silk work
ers had never counselled violence or
approved of it. Most of the bombs set
off at the time of the disorder, he con
tended, had been planted by detectives
employed by mill owners.
Zurcher declared under questioning
that sabotage was common in all in
dustries. "When a hand wants a day off and
can't get it he drops a screw driver
Into machinery," said 'the witness.
"The I. W. W.," he continued, "does
not advocate arbitration, mediation and
conciliation. These methods have been
rejected by the workers and have never
proved a success."

beef in Garfield County began this
