VERA CRUZ. Mexico, May 24. -After
fUe days of virtual Imprisonment In a
hotel, where he was held under guard
against personal enemies. Dr. Urallano
Urrutia, who was minister of the inte
rior in Iluerta's cabinet and who recently
fled from the capital to escape- Huerta'H
wrath, was quietly taken aboard the
United States transport Hancock by the
American authorities and will be taken
So quietly was the transfer made that
few outside of those who were enlisted
In the task of removing the ex-minister,
his wife and six children and their per
sonal belongings to the transport were
aware of the action taken. Early In the
afternoon Lieu'tenant Arlstldes Moreno
of Judge Advocate Porter's staff called
at the hotel with two army automobiles
and -whisked the unwelcome guests to
the sanitary pier, where Rear Admiral
Badger's barge was waiting.
Onord Along: Itonlr,
Before the trip to the water front be
gan marine guards were posted con
spicuously along the route to be traveled,
with squads covering the cross streets
and watching windows. Marines were in
the automobile and mounted marines fol
Erven the guests at the hotel and the
loungers about the cafe tables under tho
portals, which commanded a view of tho
whole proceeding, were not aware that
the much-hated Mexican had been slipped
away until hours after his departure.
Dr. Urrutia was greatly relieved when
Lieutenant Moreno informed him that Ad
miral Badger had consented to his pas
sage to the United States on the Han
cock. He expressed repeatedly his grati
tude to the American officer for the care
they had taken in guarding him from his
enemies, and assured the lieutenant that
he would seek American citizenship, hav
ing abandoned his determination to sail
American Officer Relieved.
Dr. Urrutia said he intended to go to
New Orleans, where h would establish
a permanent residence and make applica
tion for American naturalisation. His
relief is shared by the American officers
to whom his presence in Vera Crux has
been a source of constant worry. Both
officers and men have felt that the honor
of the United States was Involved In see
ing to It that Urrutia left the country
in safety, and they were aware that
numerous plots were talked of among
Mexicans of all political leanings for the
assassination of Huerta's former minister.
Numerous demands have been made on
Brigadier General Funston that Urrutia
should be held until order was restored
and he could be tried by the Mexican
courts, it being alleged that he was guilty
of murder and other high crimes. Colonol
Porter has mado a most careful investi
gation of every charge so for as possible
under the circumstances. He found that
there was not only nothing to warrant
Urrutlas detention for trial by a Mexican
court, but that the accusations against
him were based on flimsy hearsay evi
dence and general rumor.

Will Make Attempt to
Bring Htm nnck.
T. G. Hansen. Burns detective, charged
with attempting to bribe city officials,
will not erify Kdltor Joe Polcar's dread
that he will return to Omaha and turn
state's witness. When his name was
called in Judge Stewart's court in Chi
cago Saturday in habeas corpus pro
ceedings brought to keep him out of the
hands of Steve Malonry. Omaha chief of
detectives, ho failed to appear.
His bond, which was for I&.000 was
signed by a man named Winters., who
had pretended to be a disinterested per
son, but who turned 'out to bo the as
sistant general manager of Burns' Chi
cago office. The bond was forfeited.
How much more Hansen's escape cost
those "higher up" is not yet known, the
facts so far reported in Omaha having
been gleaned from meager dispatches
The Burns-Dally News gang, however,
lost a point in the fight to baffle the
long arm of the law when C. P. M. Pick
ard, also known here as Frank M. Plck
ard, was arrested in Kansas CHy yester
day. Pickard's "business" while In
Omaha In the employ of the Dally News
was In connection with county officials.
He is charged in a warrant issued Fri
day with having attempted to bribe
County Commissioner John C. Lynch by
offering to "split" a 3,600 commission
which he would secure, he said, from the
sale of coal burners and smoke con
sumers to the county.
According to a report from Kansas
City, Plckard was released mere under
$2,000 bond. Chief Maloney, It Is under
stood, will return from Chicago Immedi
ately and will go to Kansas City In an
attempt to bring Plckard hero through
extradition papers. It Is supposed, how
ever, that the same "talent" and money
which made it possible for Hansen -to
"Jump" his bond will be employed to pre
vent Plckard from being brought back to
llorr the Trick "Was Done.
After Governor Dunne of Illinois had
honored requisition papers signed by Oov
ornor Morehead, Chicago lawyers hired
in Hansen's behalf started a habeas
corpus suit. This resulted In delay and
Hansen was released under bond pending
the hearing in court and the arrival of
When the prisoner failed to appear in
court at the appointed hour yesterday his
bond was forfeited by- Judge Stewart. It
Is said that under the Illinois statutes
suit to collect the amount will be begun
It Is supposed by Omjaia officials that
Hansen's gang was afraid to rely on the
legal technicality, based on the argument
thfct the warrant for him was faulty,
which It had been Indicated would be ad
vanced to keep Hansen from Omaha.
According to word received from Chi
cago previously, Hansen admitted to Chi

SENATOR BRADLEY SUCCUMBS
Distinguished Republican Leader of
Kentucky Dies at Capital.
LONG PROMINENT IN POLITICS
Seconded Nomtuntlnna of Grant and
Itoosevelt at National Conven
tions of Party n 18SO
WASHINGTON, May 24. William O.
Bradley, United States senator from Ken
tucky, died here at 9:45 p. m., after a
lingering illness, aggravated by a fall.
Senator Bradley wa one of the most
distinguished republican leaders of Ken
tucky in his generation. An orator of
unusual ability, for forty years he had
been prominent before the peopl of his
state and the nation.
Born in 1S47, he was only 14 years old
when the civil war broke out Twice he
ran away from home to Join the union
army, only to be taken from the ranks
by his father because of his youth. As
a page of the lower house of tha Ken
tucky legislature he attracted such at
tention that at the age of IS a special
act was passed by the legislature en
abling him to practlre law If he proved
his qualifications before an examining
committee consisting of two circuit
Judges. He satisfied the committee of
hid qualifications and made the law hla
profession through life.
fltate'a Choice for President.
From the time he became of age until
his death there scarcely was a state
convention of his party in which he was
not a prominent figure. He was little
less prominent In the republican national
conventions. For twenty-eight years he
was unanimously chosen a delegate-at-large
from Kentucky to the national con
ventions. At the convention In ISM he
was the choice of his state for president
and received 105 votes for vice-president
in the 18SS convention. Three times he
was chairman of his state delegation at
the national conventions. As one of the
noted convention orators for his time he
seconded the nomination of Grant in 18S0
and that of Roosevelt In 1904. In 1SS4 it
was his oratory largely that prevented
the reduction of southern -representatives
in the convention.
Faced with a strong democratic ma
jority In his state, Mr. Bradley often
suffered defeat for office. Twice he waa
defeated for congress and four times for
United States senator arter receiving the
nomination of his party. In he was
defeated for governor, but reduced tho
democratic majority of the preceding
gubernatorial campaign from 47,000 to
17.CX). it was this showing that led to his
prominence as a vice presidential candi
date the following year.
In 1K5 he was elected governor of Ken
tucky by 8.912 majority. Victory again
settled on his banner in 19, when a
democratic legislature by eight votes
after a deadlock finally elected him to
the senate. His term would have ex
pired March 3, 1916.
On many occasions he was selected to
deliver orations on behalf of hla state.
He spoke at the dedication of the Ken
tucky building at the Columbian exposi
tion in 1893; the Jefferson statue In
Louisville; the Kentucky monument at
Chlckamauga ami the Kentucky state
capltol. His last speech was delivered in
the senate May 6, when he spoke against
the repeal of the Panama canal tolls

Before the passage Senator Reed
Smoot criticised it as a particularly had
measure. He said If some of the amend
ments In the bill had come before the
senate In separate form not ten senators
would have voted for them.
A futile attempt waa made by Senator
West of Georgia before the final vote to
reerse the agricultural committee and
the previous action of the senate and
permit co-operation of the general edu
cation hoard established by John D.
Rockefeller with the department of agri
culture. In farm demonstration work and
work to eliminate the boll weevil. It
led to more attacks upon Mr. Rockefeller
by several senators Senator West an
swered by saying that nobody criticised
the church for receiving money from
robbers and blacklegs and yet such men
had contributed to religious purposes.

Not Pnrsned .N'rar Pnnncn,
The federals were not pursued by the
constitutionalists while they were near
Panuco, in order to prevent the possible
destruction of oil properties by the re
treating enemy. But when It was learned
that Zaragoia had chosen to mar"h to the
south through a region sprinkled with
prosperous villages and foreign Interests,
chiefly oil wells, General Caballero or
dered a movement that would force him
either to stand or deflect his movement
to the west.
If the federal commander chooses the
west his path will be obstructed at Tan
toyuca by a small detachment of Agullar's
men. These, nowover, proimmy win oiicr
no resistance, but the federals will be fol
lowed by a comparatively small body of
constitutionalists under orders to harms
