A federal warrant to hold the Mystic couple, Frank Lefebre and Mary Dupont and children pending a hearing on charges looking toward their deportation to France, their native country, has been received by Sheriff Dowis.
The warrant alleges that the persons named are in the excluded class of immigrants because the man brought the woman to this country for an immoral purpose and that the woman and children are likely to become public charges.
Benj. C. Cable acting secretary of Commerce and Labor, issues the warrant to James R. Dunn, inspector at large, St. Louis, and it is forwarded here by Inspector H.L. Whitfield who investigated the case. It states that the defendants may be released on $1000 bond and the children on parole to responsible parties pending a hearing to be given them later.
The boy, Ansolm, has already been paroled to a countryman at Mystic. It will be remembered that Lefebre is the French miner that lost his wife and four children in the Titanic disaster.
