Years af the state of Oeorgi was Oper
ating the Nonhnastcrn rJlrcd. a thlrty-nlne-mlle
local l!n! ' which 1 It , had taken
under foreclosurn or bond, guaranteed. In
payment of u cIhIiii of llie Situs relate for
property' taken right-of-way- the gov
ernor gave eacli of the. eleven heirs1 a life
pass over the road. Subsequently the state
transferred the road to the Southern Hall
way and the purchasing corporation there
after denied the life pass holders the privi
lege of riding- free. The holders appealed
to the legislature and that body has author
ised the governor and attorney general to
settle with the heir. The property taken
under thi trade was claimed to 'be worth
(8.000, but the state reasons that inasmuch
as the heirs deeded It for eloven Ufa passes
the adjustment of their claim must be
based upon the value of the passes and not
upon the value of the prrper'y, hence th
governor and attorney general are studying;
over the problem, what i th value of a
life railway pass on a tblrty-nine-mlle road
In the Interior of OeoVgia? Suppose the
property for which eleven passe were ex
changed waa worth $8,000; then each heir'
pass was worth $727.57. Now. assuming the
paseenger rat on thst hill-country road
was I cents a mile, then each heir could
get his money' worth In ST3 rides the whole
length of the road, or In 186 round trip.
But that would require only six months'
riding at but one round trip a day; while
each of the heir may still enjoy the expec
tation of many year of life, according- to
the mortuary table. If, now, each pas ty
moderate dally use may be made to yle d
a value of $727 in a half year, or $1,454 in a
year, it is easy to see that in a life, of gay,
twenty years, that perennial pasteboard
may be shown to have a value of at least
$3,080 to each heir, or an aggregate worth
to all those affected of $31,880. The state,
therefore, would do well to te .cautious
about conceding that the claim I worth the
present (valuci of ih. eleven;-, pefvsesi fop it

The telephone wsr in Lincoln has reached

each day with literature from each of the

the commercial club yenterday appointed a
committee to investigate the Increase made
by the Lincoln company in Its rates to see
whether the Increase wn.t maile to enrich
the stockholders arid fllrectors mt to keep
up the present service and Improve It. Both
sldvs are alhiglng misrepresentation. The

in order to cut in on the Lincoln company,
which raised Its charges. In the long run,

the circumstances surrounding; the young
man', marriage to Evelyn Neahlt. the ar
tists' model and rhoru girl; and the spec
tacular ' scene' In the midst of which he
fired the bullets Into the breast of the man
who he claimed had betrayed his wife, all
tend to attract ah Interest tn the trtnl ex
tending; from one end of the country to
the other. i , . '
For a long time an effort has been, made
to have young Thaw rely ' upon a, defense
of "emotional insanity." but be steadfastly
has declined to give his assent to any such
plan, and In hi determination not to agree
to hide behind s cloak of Insanity, the
cause which he Impatiently asserts to be
Just, he has at on time and another since
his Imprisonment dismissed several of the
lawyers .engaged to help In liht defense,
among them a former governor of the slate
of New York.
Principals In the T(edr. '
The players In this extraordinary tragedy
of real life are each of them Interesting.
Harry Thaw, the ever wayward son of rich
and Indulgent parents, had become widely
known throughout the country prior to the
killing of Stanford White by reason of the
publicity given to many of his escapades
by the newspapers. ' His father, the late
William Thaw, was one of Pittsburg's
richest men. He had early seen that Harry
wbs not to be entrusted with a large In
come lest he give hirhseif Over to n life of
luxurious idleness and liberty. So when
the elder Thaw died he provided that Harry
Thaw should hav only $2,S00 a year. The
bulk of the estate went to Mr. William
Thaw, whose indulgent love for her, chil
dren wa oon made apparent In the man
ner In which she luvished money upon
them; Harry Thaw had but to aslt what
ever sum he choose and the mother gave It
to him. He abandoned his $6i0 a yearin
come from the estate to his valet.. It is
said that the young man's expenditures
often averag-ed as high as $i,000 and $lotUio
a year. f .
Pour or five years ago the Thaw family
cam into unusual prominence through th
announcement of . the engagement of Harry
Thaw's sister to the earl of Yarmouth.
ThlB young Englsa..nobleman had been. In
America for two years or more at that time.
He was entertained at Newport and at the
nd of a successful season there, durlng
whleh he had led the gay set ln many
amateur theatrical productions, he decided
to go upon the professional stage to earn
a livelihood in thla counter Xtl a - rr., ... -
along this line were indifferently suctess-
iui, wna.inen came tho engagement and
marriage of Miss Thaw. Since that time
tha earl. and. th countess , of Yarmouth
have lived abroad. . -
Thaw Goes Abroad.
Following the wedding of hi slater,
Harry Thaw also went abroad. When he
returned to this country two. years ago h
remained In New York Instead of g-oing
to his mother'' home in Pittsburg. -. ,
-It-was ttot long before he was seen t
wsys In company with a beautiful young
girl Evelyn Nesbit, who . had graduated
from the etudlo to ho stag. Young Thaw
and Miss Nesbit were central flg-ures ,of
many theater and supper parties along
Broadway, and there appeared in one of
the local papers a story to ths effect that
Thaw and Miss Nesbit had been secretly
married while abroad. Th fact of the
mui iwn disclosed, It was
declared, because of the fear that a dis
placed mother might cut off the support
of her favorite son. The story of the wed
ding was tsken up everywhere and the
young people were kept busy with denials.
Their affairs attracted bo much attention
that they were requested to move from the
fashionable hotel where they respectively
had been occupying expensive suites. Thl
culled forth more notoriety.' The affair,
of th. young people were kept constantly
before, the public until it wa finally an
nounced that Mr. William Thaw had con
sented to her on' marriage to Miss Nes
bit. Thereupon they were called to Pitts
burg and in th mother' home a marriage
ceremony wa performed.
For a long time following' the wedding
the Thaw' affairs were practically . lost
sight of. They spent most of their lime
In New York, were often teen together at
the theaters and cafes and apparently their
lives ran happily together.
Stanford White Main.
It was lata la the evening of Jujie 25 last
that th. city and soon the entire country
was ringing with the tragic news that
Harry Thaw had slain Stanford White.
The setting for the fatal attack had been
the Madison Square roof garden, where
the first night performance of a summer
musical show known as "Mile. Champagne"
was being given. The plac. wa. gay' In
flowers and multi-colored ' electrlo light
and wss thronged with a fashionably
drvssed audience. On the stage a man was
Singing "I Could Lov a Thousand Girls."
when suddenly above th music the pistol
shots rang out. Tho music ceased, the
etiorus gtrla and actors upon the toge
were terror stricken, men and women In
th audience dropped their glasses upon
ths table before them. In the stillness a
man waa heard to say:
"You ruined my wife, and now I've got
Stanford While lay dead at the tabu
where he had been Bitting; Harry Thaw, In
evening dress, stood with a smoking pistol
in his hand. His wife, who had seen lilm
fire the fatal shot, was led screaming
Bway from the spot and Thaw was sr
rested. ' He made no attempt to escape.
Whtte was vice president of the MsJi
son Square Garden company , mid whs
the architect -of that famous structure In
whose tower he had always maintained
studio. It was in this tower that Thaw
had charged, time and time again since
his arrest th.t Whit entertained young
women at the gayest of 'parties. Thaw
said he had frequently complained of tneao
studio -parties to th. Society for the pre
vention of Vice, and It hs been stated
on authority tliat this society nsd made
several Investigations rrlor to the roof
Wklts sefrlended Mlaa .Nesbit.
It has been brought out since the shoot
ing thst Whit befriended Evelyn Nssblt
and her mother when the young woman
first was brought to this rity to enter the
studio as a model. Letters which passed
between White and the mother of the gtrl
have been published snd may play an Im
portant part in the trial. There have been
reports tint White sought the girl's so
ciety after her marriage to Thaw, but
thla ha bean admitted by neither si da.
sod, ao far aa they could do so, counsel
for both sides have-rlonel the mouths of
the most iuipurUiiit it s ,
Thaw lias sought his Jutlrt stlon hi ii,-:
aoid-i l. vlteit-d tg ills H(!:li on Hit-
night of the tragedy. lo has clxlnie'l
that under the "Unwritten hiw." no Jury
would convict h'l-i of '.hsvlt.g takon 'the
life of "the. msn who h.-ul traduced his
Wife In her Innocent girlhood." 'in thee
acrusatlons by Thsw the friends of Stan
ford White, many of tliem Itifiuent iitl nin
of the community, have dc lired tlnit th-;
ar hlt-H-t b Interest in the girl u purely
of a fatherly character. They said he hal
assisted many young women tit make
places for themselves In the world and
that lie was no more deeply Interested In
Miss Nesbit than lie had been !n a number
of others shout whom no breath of scan
dal has been uttered.
It has been constantly stated Omt the
Thaw esse would never come to ; trial, and
thst the mysteries of Its mimy Intricate
phsses would never' be exposed to the
light of the public's gaxe, this conjecture
being bssed on the report that a pleiv of
Insanity might he entered and accepted.
Insanity Defense Discarded.
This probability., however. It Is now
said. Is pent. Harry Thaw has himself
stood In the way of spy such plun. It
Is asserted that ln his refusal to glv-?
assent to the Insanity plea he hs been
stesdfastly supported by his wife, who,
It Is also generally reported, had Con
stantly urged her husband to take some
action against Whire. Mrs. Thaw has
been a daily visitor to tho Tombs prison
and Mrs. William Thaw, who was recalled
from Europe whert the tragedy occurred,
hns also been a frequent caller. Th-rc
have been man.v family conferences und
many stormy Interviews in' the " young
mail's cell,, his resentment being shown
every time the suggestion of' Insanity hap
been offered. ;
"I prefer death .In the 'electric .chair to
a life in an inauue asylum," tho prisoner la
credited with exclaiming,. ,.,
Lewis Dalafirld, of rounsel to the Thuw
family, was first called Into the case. Hn
engnged Judge W. " M. K. Olcott of the
firm of which former Governor Frank S.
Black Is a member. They-had hardly been
in the case a. month when -youiv;- Thaw
after an Interview In the Tombs dismissed
them. He called to his jild Clifford W.'
Hart ridge, a lawyer who had been his
friend for -years. Now that- the trial is
approaching he has called into -the case
oelphin Michael Dclmas, one of the moct
noted criminal lawyers of the weal, .f ho
ha come on from Han Francisco to New
York to take direction of the trial. - Mr.
Dclmas hu been quoted as admitting that
the "unwritten law" may be the defense
finally decided upon. - . - ,
District. Attorney .Jerome will have per
snnal charge of. the prosecution. He .de
clared he , will - introduce only such- wit
nesses as are necessary to prove that Thaw
bad niadethceats against White and the
eye-witnesses of the. shooting. U will be
for the defense,, he. declares, ntryduc
any evidence bearing upon the Past, llvii
of the principals. If this Is gone into, howi
ever, the district attorney, will offer evi
dence in rebuttal. While the . presentation
of the prosecution's case, will require only
two or three days. It is expected there will
"rent difficulty In obtaining a Jury and
that the trial rnay continue over a period
of, four or five weeks.
