UTAH SENATOR SPEAKS IN
FENSE OF HIS POSITION.
STRONGLY CONDEMNS POLYGAMY
Declares There Is Nothing in the Mor
mon Church Hostile to the American
Government Houcc to Work. Over
time on Ship Subsidy Bill.
Washington, Fob. U0. Senator Rood
Smoot's address to tho senate In de
fense of his position as senator wan
tho fenluro of tho session. Ho con
demned polygamy in tho strongest
terms and declared emphatically that
he bad taken no oath Inconsistent with
that ho had taken ns senator, lie
contended that tho Mormon church
was not hostile to tho government and
that Mormon citizens had proven their
devotion to the United States on
Ho was supported by Senator Dil
lingham (Vt.) In an analytical speech
hpecch of tho evidence which had been
submitted in the case.
The senato spent several hours in
further consideration of tho forestry
provisions In tho agricultural appropri
ation bill, with the result that sev
eral amendments were agreed to
which restrict tho operations of tin
bureau in several respects.
Postoffice Bill In House.
Afttor passing a number of hills un
der unanimous consent the house re
sumed consideration of tho postofllcc
appropriation bill. Macon (Ark.)
made a point of order against the par
agraphs Inei easing the pay of clerks
In llrst and second class nuatofllcea
and carriers In the city delivery ser
vice. A spirited dispute ensued be
tween Macon and Fitzgerald (N: Y.j.
whereluithe latter gave notice that he
would, seo that a point of order vn.i,
mndo against tho section providing
for tho Increase for rural carriers. Ma
con refused to abandon his position
and tho chair sustained tho points of
Snip Subsidy at Night Sessions.
Ship subsidy will probably bo con
sidered by the house at night sessions
late Ibis week. Speaker Cannon and
Representative Watson, the Republic
an whip, conferred with tho president
concerning tho matter, and although
no positive ngreement hns been
reached, Watson said that It now
seems that the Littuucr bill will bo
considered on the Moor. In caso tho
subsidy measure Is taken, up by tho
house It will probably bo under a rulo
limiting tho debate to two evenings
nnd tho bill will bo subject to debate.
After the postofllcc appropriation
bill has been disposed of, tho measure
limiting tho hours of railway employes
to sixteen out of twenty-four will ho
taken up at tho day sessions of tho
house. Tho sundry civil bill will then
be brought forward, and as there has
been a general refusal to grant ship
subsidy any time during tbe remain
ing days of the session, it friends
asked for consideration at night. They
seem now tn be about to win tho'r
point, although the general Impression
is that the subsidy bill will he bitterly
attacked an tho lloor and amended in
many ways, If not defeated entirely.

Lincoln, Feb. 20. Tho state board
of health has discovered a most dan
gerous possibility In eating raw or hull

lowing warning to tho people of Wi

nosls occurring In this state at Hast
ings and Fremont emphasize the fad
that pork eaten raw, or even no
thoroughly cooked, Is dangerous tc
life. No law could be passed by th-i
leglslaturo that would compel u bac
teriological examination of every car
cass that was killed for home con
sumption, nnd It Is only In this way
that the trichina can bo discovered
and tho moat products condemn 11
For this reason wo must depend upon
tho press of tho state to make known
to the people In tho most public way
tho danger in eating raw pork. This
knowledge should nlso ho taught In
all schools, and a full discussion o!
tho subject thru bo had In our homes."

CONCLUDES STORY AND CROSO
EXAMINATION IS BEGUN.
PROSECUTION SCORES A POINT
District Attorney Permitted to Bring
In All Manner of Evidence Which
May Tend to Discredit Wife of Pris
oner Tells Story of "Pie Girl."
New York, Feb. 20. Mrs. Evelyn
Nc8bit Thaw entered on the ordeal oi '
her cross-examination and before Dh J
trlet Attorney Jerome had had tho
witness In charge for half un hour .10
had secured from the court u ruling '
which apparently opens tho way foi
bringing Into tho trial of Harry K
Thaw all manner of evidence which '
may tend to discredit tho defendant's
wife. Heretofore It has been held
that the rules of evidence protected
young Mrs. Thaw and that regardless
of whether her story vvus true or false,
the fnct that she had told it to her
husband was tho ono essential poln:.
Mrs. Thaw had been allowed to repeat
the utory so that tho jury might judge
as to its elfeet In unbalancing tho
mind of tho man on trial for murder
of Stanford White. Mr. Jerome, by a
simple question, opened tho way for
tho Introduction of testimony tending
to show tho truth or talslty of Mrs.
Thaw's story. Ho asked tho witness:
"Wns the story you told Thaw
"It was," she replied, firmly.
Mr. Delmns. Thaw's leading counse1,
objected strongly to tho question, but
Justice Fitzgerald hold It to be com
petent ns tending to show the cred
ibility of tho witness.
Mrs. Calne Takes the Stand.
Justice Fitzgerald allowed Jerome
to secure from Mrs. J. J. Calno of lios
ton, a friend of Mrs. Thaw, who took
the witness stand during the morning
session, ninny material points as to
tho movements of Harry Thaw and
Evelyn Nosbit following their return
from Europe in 190-1, including tho
published incident of their being eject
ed from the Hotel Cumberland In this
city, tho proprietor insisting that they
should register as ninn nnd wife or
leave their suites, which udjolned. In
bringing out these facts Mr. Jerome
denied that ho was attacking Mr3.
Thaw, and said he was merely testing
the credibility of Mrs. Calne.
Tho district attorney seemed reluc
tant to begin the cross-oxnmlnntion of
Mrs. Thaw, desiring to have the mat
ter postponed until tomorrow.
A wordy conlllct ensued, during
which Mr. Jerome hinted at broken
confidences and evasion of stipula
tions. He declared ho did not wish to
humiliate the witness with a cross
examination which ho might deem un
necessary. "However, if I am forced to do It I
will," said Jerome, with something of
a menace In his tone.
"You may proceed," replied Delmaj.
Mrs. Thaw Ready With Answers.
. Mrs. Thaw moved a bit nervously
nnd awaited Jerome's opening ques
tions. They had to do with her signa
tures to certain papers, some of which
the prosecutor declared wero receipts
for money Mrs. Thaw had drawn from
the Mercnntllo Trust company In 1902
$25 a week. Mrs. Thaw said she was
not suro that all or tho signatures
were her own they looked very muc'i
like her writing, she added. Who
piovided tho money was not devel
oped. Mrs. Thaw's confidence grew as
the cross-exainlnntlon wont on and
she was always ready with answers
Jerome, under the plea, of testing her
credibility, vvns allowed to ask may
pertinent questions. He wanted to
know when she llrst heard that she
had been named ns a co-respondent In
tho George V. Lederer divorce case
Del mas nuichiy protested. Mrs.
Thaw whispered something in his enr,
and the attorney withdrew his objef
tkm. "I read or It In the newspapers,'
said the witness, cheerily, when Je
rome repeated the question.
The prosecutor sought to show tha
Mrs. Thaw had gone to Abraham
Hummel for advice with regard to tho
divorce proceedings, but was halted
by an objection from Delmns. which
the court sustained. Jerome Drought
out that Mrs. Thaw had written to
Stnnford White from noulogno after
Thaw had proposed to her in Pails.
The cross-exnuilnatlon had barely
gotten Into full swing when adjourn
ment for the day was ordered.
The "Pie Girl" Story.
In completing her direct testimony,
Mrs. Thaw had told of tho conversa
tions she and her husband had had re
garding the fate of other young wom
en at the hands of Stanford White.
One of these gills wiVs known as "Tho
Pie fJIii" She wns fifteen years old
nnd wove only a gauze dress when ah
sprang from n big plo at a stag din
nor. The witness declared that Ma
1 MaeKeuzle had told 'her that Stanford
White, when told she and Harry wero
very hnppy together, had remnrked.
"Pooh, it won't Inst. I will get her back."
Harry Thnw's letter to Anthony Com
stock, describing three houses where
he declared White and "other scoun-
m in o ii
dnis" lured girls, was read. Among
tho places described was tho house in
Wst Twenty-fourth street, where tho
velvet sw'n" "ml tho mirrored bed
room woro located.
