St. Johns, N. B., Oct 3. The
American Immigration Inspeotors
here have received a new set of regu
lations governing the admission of
persons to the United States. Ths
rules are much more rigid than ever

similar to the one for "first papers,"
or the preliminary step toward natur
aiixatlon, shall be made at the border.
Hence under the new regulations all
persons from Canada who Intend re
siding In the States will be questioned
at great length.
The financial requirements remain
the same, but It Is understood that
certain amendments on both of these
points will be made shortly.

WOMAN ROASTS PLATT
MAE WOOD SAYS SHE IS HIS
LAWFUL WIFE, AND DELIGHTS
OVER SENATOR'S SCANDAL.
Colon, Mich., Oct. 3. Miss Mae E.
Wood, who asserts that she Is the
lawful wife of Senator Thomas C.
Piatt, at her home here yesterday
declared that she Is glad there has
been an expose of the Senator's mar
ried life, "which enlightens the pub
lic as- to the real facts."
' "Thomas C. Piatt Is reaping the
reward of his old vicious career," she
aid. "I am his real wife, and I can
prove It. He has recognized this
other woman as his wife and has
caused the world to recognize her aa
his wife. He is reaping a whirlwind
tnd deserves no pity.
"Unfortunately,-one cannot discuss
a woman of Mrs. Janeway's ilk as
frankly as the occasion demands. To
speuk of the style in which she was
accustomed to live in the whirl of
Washington society and elsewhere
and the establishments over which
she presided would be Impossible In
addressing respectable people thru
the columns of the press, and yet
these things ought to be told for the
good of society. Her glided net was
spread for the Senator and he has
become her victim completely. I can
only be glnd of any expose which en
lightens the public as to the real facts
concerning the Senator and the Jane
way woman's relations with him. I
feel sorry for Colonel Carmody or
for any of those who have been vic
tims of Piatt and Mrs. Janeway. Any
expose that will come will never half
eover the situation."
