the extradition of the boy. This an
nouncement was made by Secretary
Knox ten days ago , and since then
preparations have been going forward
| to take advantage of every legal tech
1 nicality to prevent the judgment from
going Into effect i
Insanity is to bo tne main defense
of Charltqn's % attorneys , who allege
that the committing magistrate erred
in refusing testimony as to the ac
cused man's mental status. It is clear
ly Intimated in the statement of Sec
retary Knox that should a higher court
decide that testimony as to Charlton's
sanity should bo admitted , then the
state department will again take up
the case and consider it from this
Leading attorneys of New York and
Washington are of the opinion that
an Insane man cannot be tried , and
hence cannot be legally surrendered
for trial. Thus the whole case may
como again before Secretary Knox.
Edwin Smith , of counsel for Charlton ,
declares that the case will bo carried
to the United States supreme court , if
The father of the prisoner , Judge
Charlton of Washington , was a mem
ber of the same class at Yaleas Presi
dent Taft and Is Influential in govern
ment circles. Sincerely believing that
his son is insane , he will spare no ex
pense to save him from the fate which
would await him in Italy.
Should the attempt to prevent Charl
ton's extradition prove unavailing ,
there Is little doubt that the Italian
courts would speedily convict him of
the murder of Mary Scott Castle
Charlton , the woman of checkered ca
reer whom the boy had taken to wife.
The strangely-assorted pair were
spending their honeymoon near Lake
Como , Italy , when both suddenly dis
appeared. The body of the woman
was found in a trunk in the lake , aid
for a time it was thought that Charl-
ton had also been murdered. A Rus
sian with whom the couple had been
familiar was arrested by the Italian
authorities , but was released for lack
of evidence. Meanwhile the American
authorities had been watching all In
coming ships , and on ono of thorn
Charlton was found. Then came the
remarkable confession of the young
man , who calmly admitted that ho had
stayed his wife , but gave no reason
able explanation of his motives and
Insisted that ho continued to love her.
Then the question of extradition to
Italy came up , and for a time , owing
to the nature of the extradition trea
ties existing between the United
States and Italy , it seemed that the
confessed murderer might go scott
free. Ton days ago , however , the
state department decided that Charl
ton was extraditable.
If taken to Italy , tried and coin-Jet-
cd , Charlton will not ho executed , but
his fate will be scarcely bettor than
death. Those convicted of first de /1
gree murder In Italy are confined dur
ing the first year in a dark and ray-
less cell , deprived of all human com
panionship , with nothing to read , noth
ing to do and very little to eat. Un
der such treatment the majority be
come insane before the expiration of
that year which must seem an eter
nity to the doomed wretches.
