ttt New Vrk today rm the steamer Kalserln
Atiguate Ylctis-la. The passengers did not
land until pearly 5 o'clock this afternoon
and It -was.' then too late for Mra. Thaw
to Visit hjr son in the Tombs. Tomorrow
being Sunday nowleltors are allowed In
the city prison, except, by a special permla
slon. So far, the young mini wife haa
been unable to secure this special privilege
from the commissioner of correetlona.
Whather the mother will attempt to reach
the Tomba tomorrow la not known. 8h
may be compelled to wait until Monday
before seeing the boy upon whom she has
lavished $80,000 a year from her own In
come. . .
Realising that she would perhapa arrive
too lata to, sea the prisoner todsy, Mrs.
Thaw sent a wireless telegrsm which was
delivered to Thaw early In the day. The
rnessage seemed to cheer him greatly. Mra.
Thaw was saM today to be In fair health,
.haying stood the voyage home remarkably
well.
J. B. Gleaaon of counsel for Thaw and
Chaplain Wade of the Tombs prison went
out on the cut.er that met the vessel today
and came up the bay on the Kalserln with
Mr. TTJaw.i k
. Thaw. Dismisses Attorneys.
It wss stated tonight that Harry Thaw
haa dismissed the taw firm of Black, Olcott,
Oruber A Bonygne In a fit of anger and
that the firm of -which former Governor
Frank 8. Black la the head, will not defend
the yo ting Pittsburger In his trial for the
killing of White.
The dlsmlasal tame, It was aald, as the
culmination of a number of arguments
Thaw haa had with various meCxbers of
the law firm -ox-er, the question of a de
fense. Judge tMf'dtt, who haa been the ac
tive member pf th0 firm In connection with
the cnar, has. ajl Along insisted that in
sanity be made the chief point in the de
fense, .itt is- believed, wmle Thaw hug In
sisted, with quaJ,vir not greater emphasis,

'if am the awiss," Thaw la said , to have
declared after Judge Olcott had given It
as. "'his ultimatum that Thaw should place
himself : absolutely in the handa of Ills
counsel, aa .. patient in the hands of hit.
physician, and submit entirely to the judg
ment' of the law firm ai to the beat man
ner of conducting the defense.
"And I will not stand for the Insanity
plea," the prisoner added.
Judge Olcott then left the prison, it Is
said, gnd oday.. received a letterj accord
ing to the story, 7rbm Thaw, In which the
young man 'put th writing his dismissal of
the firm.
A member of Judge Olcott's firm, when
questioned about the matter tonlgty), said:
Our Arm was not engaged by Harry
Thaw, but by the law Arm pt Delafield &
Longfellow, who are .counsel for -Harry
Thaw's mother and were counsel. for Harry
Thaw's father auHrUT iH f Wer . Thaw'i

ther than' that I do not care to talk just

It is' said that another cause for' dla

counsel arose oilVOf the payment of certain

statement. - He pestered me so much I had

Young Thaw waa angry when hs "heard
of this and the next day called in the re
porters and made a verbal and still stronger
statement along- the same . Unas without
Judge Olcott's consent or even knowledge.
It waa Judge Olcott's tura' to be angry
when he saw this second statement In the
newspapers and it was as a result ef that
statement that hs laid down the law to
young 'Thaw Friday afternoon and ac
cording to the' story received' his dismissal
as Thaw's legal representative In eon-
rhectlbn with the murder trial.

pending In the courts a sensational suit
for divorce; his friend, John K Welshons,
and Clifford Hooe, a negro and former
coachman, who Is In Jail awaiting trial on
the charges of perjury, brought against him
n connection with the divorce case. The
charges of conspiracy against these- men
were taken up by Assistant District At
torney Robb last week and the hearing
waa aet for today. Despite the strenuous
opposition of counsel for Hartje, Alderman
King granted the postponement.
The trial of the divorce case will be re
sumed Monday or Tuesday, but in the
meantime there are Indications that the
sensational disclosure are at an end. It
was said tonight that Miss Ida Scott, sister
of Mrs. Mary Scott Hartje, would go on
the witness stand next week and would
swear that she wrote exhibit No. $4, the
envelope which was directed to "Thnmas
Madlne, care of Schulenberg'a stahle." It
was one of Mr. llnrtje's strong cards, as
he a lie ires rris wife wrote It. " She will "also
swear that she wrote exhibits Nos.'M fcnd
64. She will tell why she wrote to MacHne
and what business she had with him.
It waa learned late tonight that threaten
ing letters have been written to witnesses
for Mra. Hartje. As a result Mra. Alex-
arder W. Slocum, who Is to b Mrs.
Hartje's closest woman friend, Is con
stantly attended by a physician and also
guarded by two private detectives.
Aarly In the Hartje rase Mrs. loMim
was called to the aland to testify aa to
Mrs. Hartje's habits and character, and
since her testimony she has been Mra.
Hartje's constant attendant.
Today Mrs. Slocum received a letter Com.
mandlng her to leave Pittsburg, retract
her testimony given In favor of Mrs. Hartje
or she would be ahot.
Mr. Slocum took the letter to Mi
Hartje and both women went immediately
to the office of Mr. Freeman of counsel
for Mra. Hartje. It waa in Mr. Freeman's
office that Mra. Slocum broke down from
the nervous strain and tension to which
she had been atibjected. The letters were
shown to the county officials and to District
Attorney Robert E. Stewart, but no copy
of the contents would be given out.

PANAMA. July 14 A telegram received
here from Ran Salvador ' says that Hon
duras declared war against Utiatrmala
today.
According to this same message the fol
lowing proclamation had been circulated
In Salvador:
Clenerel Ronilla. commanding the Salva
dorean army has repellerl the Guatemalan
forces at Matapan. In Salvador, ten miles
east of the Oiiatemalin frontier. Tho vic
torious army of Salvador retained the
posltlona raptured from the enemy.
The declaration of war- by Honduras
upon Guatemala brlnga a third state ac
tively Into the Central American trotible
which has been progressing with more or
less severe fighting and bloodshed for a
month or more. Honduras and' Salvador
are now arrayed against their neighbor on
the west. Nicaragua and Costa Rica tre
the only two countries still passive, and
It haa been said- that the former is about
to takfe part In the fighting.
L'p to today Honduras has seemingly
taken no part In the controversy between
Its nelghhois. Recent reports. hoPver,
declared Its territory had been Invaded
by Ouatemalan troops In pursuit of fugi
tives from the afmy of Oeneral Regalado,
the Salvadorean commander1, who waa killed
In the fighting at Jlcaro.
History of Trouble.
The present trouble, in Central America
has Veen brewing for a long time. For
the past five years the revolutionists In that
country have. been planning, Intriguing and
preparing for the overthrow of President
Cabrera, and In their efforts to this end
they have not failed to appeal for support
to certain elements In Honduras nd Sal
vador, working on the national jealousies
for first place among the several states
forming Central America.
President Cabrera has been harshly criti
cised' by his enemies. They declare he
rules with extreme despotism, that, nti
man's life is safe under his administration
and that the country morally and econom
ically la going to the doga under his unwise
and Ill-advised course.
On the other hand President Cabrera has
declared thla revolutionary movement to be
Inconsequential and that the government
wduld prqomptly put It down.
President Cabrera's term of office In fact
expired In lflOS. He haa Insisted, however,
on holding office.
Cabrera'a army Is said to have no faith
In him. The pay of the soldiers has often
been in.arreara. The fighting men of the
stitea of Central America are little more
than automatona. to be led Into battle,
told to charge and be killed at the command
of their offlcera. The army of Guatemala
Is In fairly good shape. There ars some
7.000 professional soldiers In the 'republic.
with M.O00 sblebodied men of service age.
Ths reserves amount to sbout 80.000 men.
It ws's reported thst Guatemala had 60.000
men under' arms near the Salvador bound
ary line.
The trouble between Salvador and Guate
mala la an outcome of the progress of tha
revolutionists in their efforts to oust Ca
brera. ,
