NEW TOrtK, June 2S.-Porter Charlton's
raae now awaits on the result of exchanges
between the State department at Washing
ton, and the Itau.in government. Ill coun
rel today In asking that his formal arraign
ment be postpone! promises that nu effort
would oo muno under habeas corpus, In
sanity or other proceedings to take the
prisoner out of the hands of the New Jer
sey authorities pending the adjourned ar
raignment, which after some argument was
set for July 8.
Meanwhile It Is expected that the Inter
national aspects of the case will have ad
Justed themselves and a decision be reached
as to whether Charlton shall be delivered
lo the Italian authorities on extradition
Charlton In Court.
Charlton, pale and thinner than when
last seen out o doors, was brought from
the Jail to the court house under escort of
the warden and sheriff, between whom lie
walked unmanacled and shielding his face
from the gaze of the curious crowd by
nf h. Dni-tlv oiK-ned newspaper. He

Attorneys conferred with Judge lllalr.
With the arrival of tiustave Ul Kosa,
the Italian consular representative In New
York, the proceedings were opened by a
moth n on the part of the defense tor an
adjournment. Prosecutor Uarvtn said he
had no objection to offer provided it be
agreed that Charlton be kept meanwhile In
the Hudson county Jail and that no pro
ceedings were Instituted to take him out
of the custody of the New Jersey authori
This promise Charlton's counsel readily
made, and Judge Blair set the hearing for
Posltlou of United Statea.
Copies of Italian evidence of the crime
are In the hands of Gustavo Ulrossa, the
Italian consular representative In New
York. It waa said also before the pro
ceedings opened before Judare ill air In Jut
sey City that the New Jersey authorities
also had a copy of a dispatch sent by the
Marquis Paolo Dl Montegliati, charge d'af
faires at the Italian embassy In Washing
ton, to Secretary of State Knox on the day
of Charlton's arrest,, and requesting the
young man's extradition. In reply the mar
quls was stated to have received a note
from Secretary Knox in which It was lntl
mated that If Charlton were given up
Italy would hereafter be expected to con
Bent to the extradition of Italians who com
mit crimes in America and flee to Italy.
The further exchanges reported In this
connection were sold to have resulted In a
declination on the part of the Italian gov
ernment to commit Itself to ar.y such prop
osition on the ground that an Italian penal
code provision of a later date than the ex
tradition treaty with the United States
provided that no Italian subject accused of
crime should be tried outside hio own coun
try. Italy was said to have made no reply
to the State department's rejoinder that
an International treaty should take prece
dence over a national law.

ing the disposition of Arctic trophies left
by him at Eta.lt which Ur. Frederick A.
Cook made against Commander Robort E.
Peary during the highest of the contro

tho North pole were aired in a German
court today, whin the suit Instituted
against Peary by Rudolph Francke was
Francke who was associated with Cook i
In polar exploration, demands $10,000 In sat
isfaction of prizes of the hunt, which he
alleges Peary required him to surrender
in consideration of bringing him back to
The defense sets up a general denial and
further questions the Jurisdiction of the
court on the grounds that tho defendant
is an American citizen, having no domicile
in this city. After hearing the opening
arguments the court adjourned to con
sider the point of Jurisdiction.
Commander Peary was served with pa
pers In the suit when he came here re
cently to fill a lecture engagement. At
the time he said he would be unable to
remain here for the local hearing and that
he had placed the case In the hands of the
American ambassador, Mr. Hill
Peary's Interests were looked after to
day by Attorney Jablonskl, a partner of
Victor Schneider, counsel to the American
embassy, while Herr Thiel represented
Francke. The latter was present, but was
not called to the witness stand.
Tht proceedings were before three Judges
of the prlvinclal cour. In opening for
the plaintiff, Herr Thiel spoke for more
than an hour, going over the whole story
of the equipment of Cook's expedition, tiie
building of tiie supply nation ut Ktah, on
the northwest coast of Greenland ; the
hunting in that vicinity. Cook's departure
toward the pole. Franoko's Illness, the ar
rival of Peary and Francke's return home
in the Peary relief ship Erik.
The lawyer asserted that Peary had
caused the plaintiff to turn over to him
certain blue fox skins, furs and narwhale
tusks as the only condition on which he
would take him from the Arctic, where,
if deserted, he believed he would die. The
attorney argued that the transaction was
Illegal In that It was consummated under
stress. He said that a pair of narwhal
tusks then given up wore later prwented
by Peary to Theodore Roosevelt, while
hills, where all sorts of sports were cn- Mine of the blue fox skins were given to
