lieve Inlted States from
WASHINGTON, Dec. 9. Secretary Knox
today granted the request of Italy for tlie
surrender of Porter Charlton, charged with
the murder of hla wife at Lake Como. The
n retary holds that the fact that Italy
refuses to surrender Its citizens to the
United States for trial does not relieve this
country from the obligation of the extradi
tion treaty to surrender to Italy fugitive
from Justice from that country. The ques
tion of the sanity of Charlton, It la sug
gested, la one for the courts and not for
the department to determine.
Arguhienta by counsel for the accused
that Italy refused to surrender Its own
citizens and the assertion that the Italian
demand for Charlton's surrender was not
In ntrlct accordance with the requirements
of the treaty are swept away by the secre
tary as without basis and the committing
magistrate's proceedings are found to have
b.en regular In all respects.
A closing remark by the secretary Is
significant n. carrying the Intimation that
C'harlton'H attorney may have further re
course to the courts If they are disposed to
raise the question of Insanity.
History of Case.
The decision relates to the history of the
cn-e, beginning with the arrest of Charlton
hi New York, on Juno 24, last, on complaint
tf the Italian vice consul.
' Formal demand for the extradition of
Charlton undi r and pursuant to the terms
of the extraditing treaty between the United
Stales and Italy," read the decision, "was
niado upon this government by Italy on
July 2S, that is, within the forty days'
period provided In the treaty. Later, Charl
tori was taken before an extradition magis
trate who. after a formal heating as pro
vided by the treaty and statute, committed
him on October 14 for surrender to the
"The committing magistrate's reoord, as
transmitted to the department, discloses
no material Information, unless such sur
render is to be defeated by objections
raised by counsel for the accused.
These objections are:
f'Klrst, that the secretary of state should
decline to surrender the accused and ths
president should direct his discharges, be
cause the record of the committing magis
trate as transmitted to the department
does not contain the formal demand of the
J in Hun government for the surrender of
the fugitive or show that auch demand was
within the treaty period.
'The. fcrmsl demand for 'requisition' of
mi government upon another for the sur
render of a fugitive Is of a political char
acter. It would appear, therefore, that
the matter of a 'requisition' Is a matter
which primarily concerns the political
brunch of the government and that all
lucslioiiH regarding the propriety or suf
ficiency of the form In which It Is made
art; for the determination of that branch,
' It la- concluded that the first objection
ra:ed by counsel for the accused In this
caxe la without merit and of no effect In
"The second objection la that Charlton
shuuld not be surrendered because, under
the treaty providing that each government
shall surrender persons fugitlvo from the
one and found In tha other, Italy refused
to surrender to the l'nlted Status for trial
an dpunlshment Italian subjects who were
fugitives from the Justice of the United
btates, therefor the United States Is re
lieved from an ubllgatton to surrender Its
citizens fugitives from Italy.
"This contention, like the first, la with
out merit In this case.
"lta fundamental fallacy la that an x
tiadltlon treaty must be wholly reciprocal.
This la not true. Our own treaties will

REJOICING IN REDMOND CAMP
Only Nationalist Seat In Belfast Is

Who Recently Visited the
LONDON, Dec .-Tonig:hf8 totals show
that the coalition parties have thus far
secured 244 seats In tha new Parliament
and the unionists 307 soata. The unionists
have gained' twenty-one constituencies, the
liberals fourteen and the labor party four.
Tha coalition aggregate is divided as fol

LONDON. Deo. . the parliamentary
elections continue their humdrum course,
the chief feature, perhaps, being the strik
ing similarity to the returns of January
last. Hardly Is a gsjn noted on one side
before It Is equalised on the other.
Today's news of special interest was the
defeat of Tlmotny Hsaly at Louth, which
constituency he has represented In the
House of Commons for eighteen years.
The Redmondltes brought all their forces
to bear In turning out the man who may
be said, almost, to be a more bitter op
ponent of the Irish leader than O'Brien
himself. Healy Is known as the Ishmael
of nationalist politics and has followed an
independent course since the downfall of
Parnell, to which he largely contributed.
Ilednionltes Are Rejolclnsr.
The successful candidate, Kiohard Haael
ton, who yesterday also returned unopposed
for the north division of Galway, tried
to send Healy Into retirement In January,
but failed by ninety-nine votes. The re
joicing in the Redmond camp over the de
feat of O'Brien's chief llsutenant, Wulte,
overshadows the chagrin at William Red
mond's failure to oust O'Brien In Cdrk
The state of the partlea this afternoon
was as folows:
Coalition: Liberals, 163; nationals, 47; labor
members, 29; Independent nationalists, 6.
Opposition: Unionists, 206.
The unionists won seats in Darwen divi
sion of Lancashire and Altrlncham divi
sion of Cheshire, while the liberals cap
tured the Doi.th division ot Lincolnshire.
8uffraalts Make Poor Showing;.
The cause of woman's suff range Is mak
ing a pi table showing In the elections. Thus
far they have had but two candidates, and
of these one polled but twenty-two and
the other thirty-three votes..
Other Interesting developments today
were the capture of the only nationalist
seat In Belfast City (west), by Joseph
Devlin, one of the Redmond party, who
recently visited America and the return
of Bir Edward Grey, the minister of for
eign affairs, for the Berwick division of
Northumberland by a majority of thrte
more than ft: obtained In January.
It Is un!e. j;ood that Healy has already
made a protett against the conduct of the
election at l.juth, alleging gross corrup
tion and Intimidation. Exciting scenes
marked the polling. Throughout the day
there were free f.ghts and Incidentally
considerable damage to property. Healy
himself required police protection.

WASHINGTON, D. C. Dec. . (Special
Telegram. 1 Colonel "Lafe" Younff made
hl.s first speech as senator before the con
gress of business men today when he ad

With the adoption of resolutions outlining
Its attltudo on the Improvement of water
ways and the re-election of Representative
Joseph K. Ramsdell of Louisiana as, presi
dent, and Captain J. K. Ellison as secre
tary -treasurer, the organization brought to
a close today Its seventh annual convention,
which haa been characterised from start to
finish by complete harmony.
The resolutions commend the attitude of
the president and urge the annual appro
priation of 150,000,0(10 by congrnta for the
Improvement of waterways to be paid out
of current revenues where possible, other
wise by the Issuance and sale of bonds.
It la declared, however, that the congress
favors such bond Issues only for perma
nent Improvements, and that the amount
of any Issue shall be limited to the re- -
qulrements of the year of Issue. It Is urgod
also that the United States corps of en
gineers be Increased sufficiently to ade
quately care for the projects upon which
they will be required to pass, and that tha
powers of the interstate Commerce com
mission be enlarged to give that body ef
fectual authority to regulate competing
land and water carriers. One paragraph
of the resolution sets forth the need of
Immediate attention to terminal facilities
along waterways to be Improved, and u.-ges
co-operation with the government In vari
ous localities In carrying out Improve
ments. The business session ot tha congress fol
lowed an Impromptu symposium on the
work of the .body during which Senator
Lafayette Young of Iowa and Governor
Stubba of Kansas were speakers.
Tha speakers wer enthusiaatlo Id tnatf ;

Each man, while telling of the require
ments of his own particular section, de
clared that the needs of all tha country
should be considered first.
The report of the nominating committee
was read and adopted. The report pro

directors from forty-three to fifty-eight.
Advises Young Man.
Among other things, Colonel Young said:
"I certainly ought to be grateful to busi
ness men to get Into a congress that haa
not any politics In It. I refer to yours. I
think we have entirely too much politics
In the United State. It Is almoat always a
handicap Instead of a help. I enjoy this
coming together of our business men from
all parts of the country for purely business
purposes, and they are alwaya better than
gatherings for political purposes.
"We are teaching our young men that
there Is a career open for them, an honor
able career outside that of a political ca
reer. Time was when It was tha custom
to say, when our boys came home fTom col
lege, 'Oh, he has a great career before
him.' That carer was what? He was going
to practice law, go to the legislature, then
to congress, from which he Is retired by
some little primary legislation.
"My advice to the young men is to
Into some business and ao build It up' that
that It cannot be brought abruptly toan
end. Let' him devote his life to business,
family Ufe, the only thing s that are really
worth while, and enjoy all the sunshine he
can; and he cannot enjoy sutirfhlne very
long If he Is In the political game. The
formation of these organizations all over
the country having these businesses In Its
heart brings out the brain nd airanlrth
and greater manhood of the oung men of
"The transportation problem Is so nearly
allied with even thing we do that It Is not
surprising that congresses like these call
attention to It. Railroad transportation Is
good, but when you come to place your
trafflo on coatly cars which aie placed on
costly trucks, running ovet oUy tracks,
consisting of costly rails r coliy ties kept
In plae by costly ballast, au vf whlrM are
constantly wecrlng out, and constantly re
quiring replacement, you bavo built up a
traiiBjHirtatlon system that is entirely too
expensive for the future of our commerce,
hence we must have a right-of-way made
by water that does not need any replace
ments, that does not need repairs except
In the matter of water botoins placed upon
those waterways, and thuto only wear out
"Everything In this country has been
operated upon the highest plane of expense
J and our expense must be cut down by
some means. This transportation is the
lame In my mind as the good roads prob
lem found In every state In the union
and it lias met with the vaine difficulties.
"The reason we have not had better
roads Is because In the meetings through,
tho country at which the matter haa been
discussed home one has advocated expendi
tures of comparatively laiK'e sums of money
and the congre.s would adjourn without
any conclusion or ur:ion. The msterial
for good road inniilng Is always at hand.
