WASHINGTON. Dec. 1. Through
its leual reprcsenlatives here, the
Nicaraguan Koverninent today with
drew its reiitioot for the extrudition
of ex-l'rcsident Jose Santos Zelnva.
The Niearncuan lawyers told So
licitor JospdIi W. Folk of the state
department they would ho satisfied
if tho United States deported the ex
proMdent to his home in Harccloua,
Spain. From tlio fact that the ex
tradition application was withdrawn,
it was surmised that miiuo such
pmmiso was civcu.
The application, as tiled, dm rued
Zelaya with Murdering two Niearai;
unns during his term of office. It
was believed, however, that what he
really was wanted for was the kill
ing of two Americans, Grace and
Cannon, executed In Nicaragua while
ho was dictator of that country.
The final guess today was that iue
Nicnrnguaii goverumont suspected he
was in New York, whore ho was ar
rested, to cook up a plot for another
descent on tho little republic and
wanted either to get him into its own
hands or scare him out of tho hem
isphere. When ho hoard tho extradition
wnrrant was out for him, Zelaya hnd
himself carried into a friend's New
York npartment in a trunk. The pol
ico found and arrested him, how
ever, held him for somo time, in a
cell and then turned him over to
the federal authorities, who locked
him up in tho Tombs, whence he was
subsequently released hy virtue of a
habeas corpus proceeding.

SHKLBYVILLE, Ind., Dee. 1.
Opening with n scathing denuncia
tion of Dr. William II. Crnin, well-to-do
head of an Indianapolis vet
erinary college, as a monster of im
morality, Attorney Euh Ininnn this
afternoon demanded Craig's life, n?
murderer of Dr. Helen Knnhe, tho
hnndsomo young woman physician
found dead in her apartments iu In
dianaxdis, about a year ago, with
her throat cut from car to ear.
Tuman, a prominent Indiana crim
inal lawyer engaged by IudinuapolK
women's clubs, with several of which
Dr. Knnhe was connected, to aid the
prosecutor, iu tho Craig case, prom
ised tin jury to prove Hint tho pris
oner killed the woman during a (puir
rel, which followed his announcement
that ho did not menu to keep his
pledge to marry her.
That Craig has wronged many wo
men under promise of matrimony,
which ho subsequently repudiated,
was Jumna's assertion.
"Wo know of ono high school gi i
among his victims," declared the at
torney, who, when she asked him to
take her as his wife, as ho had said
he would, received tlio answer: 'I will
pay in cash.' "
The samo thing happened in the
ense of another girl with whom no
offered to compromise. This girl
turned up mysteriously in Florida
just heforo this trial opened.
"Craig watched Dr. Knnhe when
she was unawaro of it. Ho peered
iu at her windows nightly. .Finally
they quarrelled and he killed her."
