NEW YORK, July Tre lnvrntiatirn
of the district attorney office to discover
th motive for the killing of Stanford
White by Harry Thsw Is bringing to th
office of the prosecutor mHny young women
of the stge. The Broadway theatrical dis
trict haa been flooded with subpoena.
Many choru girl have left the city and
others remain at their homs to avoid th
subpoena servers. Two young women
whom th district attorney's office ha been
particular to Interview are Miss Pau!a
Desmond and Mis Gertie Grant. It U
alleged that these young women Were fol
lowed and annoyed by detectives who had
been employed to watch White. Paul
Desmond, whose real name Is Paulina
Kellerman, is now at her home In King
ston. N. Y., mid a representative of the
district attorney's office has krone there to
see her.
Miss Grant has been abroad for some
time,, but returned last Saturday. Detec
tives were watching all the steamships,
but the girl slipped ashore unseen and
her whereabout now Is not known.
Both Mis Grant and Mlsa liesmond
are known to have been friends of Stan
ford White. The activity of the district
attorney's office in running down all
cities in the theatrlcsl district Is largely
dun to the story told Assistant District
Attorney Garvan by F.dna McClure, a show
girl, and former friend of Mrs. Thaw.
Than Kbent 111 Will.
Miss McClure told the assistant attor
ney that, while entertaining a number of
guests In a Broadway restaurant one
night. Thaw raw Stanford White enter
the place. He began to abuse White, Mlsa
McClure ay. and said to hi wife:
"There goe that blackguard now that
owned you before I did."
Mr. Thsw reported to have
answer'd: "Stop raking up my past,
Harry. That brute over there Is re
sponsible. Go to htm about It."
"I will," Thaw said. "I will get him
Mr. McClure, mother of Kdna McClure,
w with her daughter at the district at
torney' office yesterday. In speaking of
the Thaw case today she said:
"Harry Thaw' hate for Stanford White
w like that of a maniac. He seemed
possessed of a consuming horror of
White. It ws plainly a mania with him."
The district attorney' office 1 also
enrolling for William Sturgls, a close
friend of Harry K. Thaw, who has dis
appeared since the tragedy. It 1 re
ported that Sturgla had heard Thaw mako
threats against Stanford White.
Another Thaw Valet.
A witness whose testimony may be of
considerable Importance In connection
with the Thaw-White ce was found to
day In the person of Warren Hammond,
who t one time was employed by Thaw
as a valet. Until today It had been sup
posed thst when William Bedford, Thaw's
regular valet, died the testimony of the
oniy person who had ever occupied the
position of a body servant to the young
man had been Irrevocably loet. Hammond,
however, substituted for Bedford during
three month when the latter was 111, about
three years ago. It is expected that, Ham
mond will be examined at the district at
torney's office tomorrow.
Among the persons questioned by Assist
ant District Attorney Garvan today was
Charles Harnett, who wss employed , by
Stanford White as a secretary. ' It Is under
stood that Mr. Harnett's testimony tended
to contradict the current report of much
that waa discreditable In Mr. White's pri
vate life. i
Thaw Threatened 'White.
A Mrs. Bchwartx, who lives In AVvat
Thirty-second street and who Is an Inti
mate friend of the Thaws, will be ques
tioned by Mr.. Garvan tomorrow. H Is
said that shortly after Harry Thaw and
Miss Nesblt were married Thaw threat
ened. In the presence ot Mra. Schwartz, to
shoot Stanford White, and it Is to ascer
tatln if this threat was actually made that
Mr. Garvan will interrogate Mr. 8rhwari.

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINKS, July . tBpeclal.) The
executive council had not been in session
more than an hour today when politics en
tered into the discussion of fixing the rail
road assessment. Attorney J. C. Davis for
th Northwestern msde the ssserllon that
the public agitation that Is going on at this
time has Injured the railroads, and he mud
this a further excuse for something that
he said to the executive council. He ss
sertcd that it is not true that the value
of farm lands and other property in the
state has been raised more of late years
than haa that of railroad property. He
showed' that while farm lands hsd been
Increased from 14.) an acre, making the
valuation $40.28 an additional acre, th rail
roads had been Increased from IJO.IKS a mile
to l:1.T48, or an Increase of 12 per cent for
the farm land and 2.1 per cent for railroads.
He asserted that farm land ought to be
assessed at about I'M nn acre.
Mr. Crunden of the Northwestern' tax
department asserted that since he reached
the city he had heard It stated several
times that the executive council ha al
ready decided to add a very substantial in
crease to the railroad assessment. Before
he could finish saying that he did not be
lieve this to be the case, Oovernor Cummins
had Interrupted hltn to say that this was
not true, and he called Mr. Cranden to task
for making th assertion since the council
met todny for the first time thla year on the
proposition. Mr. Cranden reiterated the
statement that he had heard it several
limes and gave as one source a local news
paper. Governor Cummins told him: "If
those statements have been made they have
possibly arisen from the fact that we have
been damned from one end of this state
to the other for not raising the railroad
assessment more."
"If that Is the case I want to tak part of
the burden of the damnlmr," said Mr.
Cranden who appears annually and argues
for a low 'assessment.
"I have thought," continued the governor,
"that aome who have so persistently said
we had not done our duty should appear
here now and make good."
For the most part the representatives of
railroad, who were the only persons pres
ent, argued today on what should be the
basis for mSking railroad assessments and
no' arguments were Introduced that have
not been thoroughly discussed In other
years. .The chief discussion centered on
whether the valuation of land Is fixed high
enough. The attorneys who spoke today
maintained that Iowa farm land ought to
be valued at nearer Jffl than $40 an acre.
The executive council has gone on the
theory that the average value of land In
lows Is about $50 an acre and that .the
valuation for taxation purpose being four
fifth of the real value the railroads should
be taxed on the same basts. Governor
Cummin read from a government report
on railroad valuation whlcft fixe Iowa rail
roads at $,15,000 a mile as the real commer
cial value. On this basl the executive
council would have to add about $45,000,000
to the valuation In Iowa.
