The brawny axe man of medeval days has yielded to a slim girl with unerring atai and a lust for blood. The French prisoners were repatriated after having spent a term in Butirki prison, Moscow. That institution is filled with 3,000 men from all' ranks--frock-coated statesmen and smocked workmen, robed pnests and uniformed officers, nobles and bourgeois All were herded into dirty cells which made SEA F R J) Blakely Coughlin's Father and Police Dig Ground 1 Around Egg Harbor.

J., Oct. 12-Spaded earth in spots here and there near this village today , marked the trail of the searchers for tho body of baby Blakely Coughlm, hastily buried four months ago by his kidnaper August Pasquale. A gran little searching party htmted- a. play ground for vermin. No attempt was made to keep the prison clean, the men said and even ordinary precautions for the removal : filth were neglected, due in part entrance, 1hey r -said. . Prisoners, they /asserted, were executed without trial. Their fate was determined by tottery. Frequently it .was the most, inoffefr- sJve who drew the fatal number and,was led out to stand with face to the wall until the beautiful executioner and her revolver had finished the work. The Frenchmen gave a thrilling description of this lottery which is conducted while large groups of prisoners stand_ about a big room, red guards with, fixed bayonets forming a verdon about the walls. The tension increases until one of the prisoners draws the number, then it snaps and screams and cries mark the "let down." Some prisoners, however, they said, have been known to try to get the death ticket, preferring a shot to further imprisonment. When the victim is taken into the court yard, the Frenchmen said, the girl is brought out to do her work. They described her as a "raving maniac" about fifteen years old. Reed Hits at Wilson.

By A. L. BRADFORD, (TJnitcd Prrit Staff Correipotident.) WASHINGTON, Oat, 12--Negotiations over Japanese immisjiat'on a n d ; anti-Japanese legislation in Ca'ifornia were continued at the state department. Roland S. Morris, American am- j bassador to Totao, and Ambassador Shidehara of Japan, are carrying on the negotiations. While the state department and the Japanese embassy are maintaining the strictest secrecy the two countries are said to have reached an understanding on general principles and the negotiations are believed to be progressing to ward a settlement. j Japan may take the position that ail laws discriminating against her sub-' jects already in the United States, such as the existing anti-alien land law in California, must be wiped out, it was understood here. The proposed California law for prohibition even of land leasing by Japanese also would be included in this demand. This stand of Japan makes the issue between the two countries-clean cut. The United States is not entirely- satisfied with the "gentlemen's agreement" by which Japan voluntarily undertakes to restrict immigration and wants an absolute prohibition of Japanese labor immigration. The "gentlemen's agreemen'" now is believed to be under study. MOTHER IS WAITING NORRISTOWN, Pa., Oct. 12 -The ner\e center of the search for the grave of little Blakely Cough lln is a room in the Coughhn residence here, where the baby's mother waits hour after hour for new?. Torn by conflicting emotions, Mrs. Coughlm has borne up remarkably well, her friends say. The strain of the first weeks after the kidnaping, when there was strong hope that Blakely would be returned safe to her, failed to overcome her. Now as the searchers work with their spades around Egg Harbor, N. J., she waits fearing any minute will bring news of the finding of the body hoping against hope that nothing will be found and that the child is still alive.

Announcement from New York that the eastern speaking tnp has been called off confirmed intimations prevalent here for several' days. Senator Harding, for various reasons, objected to it. Madison Square Garden had (been reserved for the n'ght of October 27 Some of Harding's advisors feared complications at New York, the chief one being the possibil ity that Ehhu Root, a strong league advocate, might pieside at the meeting and thus emphasize a divergence of views on the league between himself and Senator Harding. Believing his attitude on the League had been misrepresented in some press dispatches sent on his Des Momes speech, Senator Harding issued a formal statement re-stating his position. It is, he said, against the present league, but in favor of some association, whether it be called a league or not, that will discourage or tend to prevent war and promote better understanding between nations.
