OEJICTS TO MISS M'KENZIE'3 PRESENCE
Former thorns titrl Attends Trial
with Mrs. Harry Thaw and
Ilia Kanitlr Doesn't
NEW YORK. Jnn. . Rumors of dif
ferences between Mrs. Harry K. Thaw on
one side and Mrs. William Thaw and the
Countess of Yarmouth, mother and sister,
respectively, or Hurry K. .Thaw, on the
other, continued to be circulated toiny,
despite a drnial by Thaws counsel that
any surh difference existed. The reported
differences are alleged to have arlsrn over
the continued presence in the court room
of Miss McKentle, the former chorus girl,
who invariably accompanied Mrs. Evelyn
Thaw and sits by her during the sessions
of the court. Miss MrKensle Is said to be
the younger Mrs. Thaw's constant dm
panlon since Harry Thaw shot Stanford
It was reported today that De-lphln M.
Pelmas. the Snn Francisco lawyer, who
came east to defend Thaw, went to the
Hotel Ixrralne. where the relatives of
Harry K. Thaw are staying. In the hope
of reconciling any difference which might
have arisen between the women. It was
said that Evelyn Thaw made the first step
to placate her mother-in-law and sister-in-law
and that Mr. Delmas only consented to
try to smooth over their misunderstand
ings on the agreement that Miss McKemle
should discontinue her appearances In
rlcne Matter with Connael.
Harry Thaw Is said to have discussed
this matter with A. Russell Peabody, of
his counsel, when Mr. Peabody visited him
In the Tombs prison today. Afterward
Mr. Teibody said: "I don't believe that
Mr. Pelmas knows that Miss McKensle Is
In the court room. He is there to work
and I don't believe he gives the woman a
"Early Inst summer when Evelyn Thaw
was practically all alone Miss McKensie
was with her most of the time. It is only
natural to suppose that Mrs. Thaw wants
to have Miss McKenle with her now, even
though the other members of her husband's
family are with her."
Mr. Pealody was asked to state whether
there Is any truth In the stories that Thaw
has received threatening tetters since he
has been in the Tombs. He replied:
"My client has received hundreds of letters
during the time he has been awaiting
trial in the Tombs and I have seen nearly
all of them. None of the missives sent
by other than friends and relatives cnuld
be classed as threatening. About one In a
hunred of the letters contained what may
be described as unfavorable comment and
that Is a light percentage, as letter writing
cranks as a rule use strong words In their
uncalled for communications."
Mr. Peabody said that Miss McKensle
had proved herself one of the best frlensls
Mrs. Evelyn Thaw ever had and that she
took care of Mrs. Thaw last summer when
the young wife was "suffering agony
greater than that borne by any woman in
New York," and has been devoted ever
Ho Trnth In Report.
"Is It to be expected that now Mrs. Harry
Thaw would cast her friend aside just for
the sake of appearances?" Mr. Peabody
He declared that there was no more truth
In the report that other relatives of Thaw
have quarreled with Evelyn Thaw because
of her friendship for Miss McKensie. He
said that Mrs. William Thaw and her
daughters have never had the slightest
objection to the Intimacy of the pair and
that this applied to the countesa of Yar
mouth, who has not been In court for sev
eral days on aocount of the strain of the
first day and who has stayed In the hotel
Mr. Peabody said that the report that
Mr. Delmas had delivered an ultimatum
that he would withdraw from the case un
less May McKensie was kept out of the
court room Is absolutely without founda
tion and he said that Mr. Delmas had not
declared at the Yale club that either he or
Miss McKensie would have to keep out of
the court room.
Mr. Peabody also declared thst the report
that Harry Thaw and his wife were con
templating a divorce if Thaw is acquitted
Is also false. He said that Thaw and his
wife "are more Inseparably bound together
than before the tragedy."
One of the reports In circulation today
dealing with Thaw's motive for shooting
Stanford White was to the effect that on
the night before the shooting Thaw called
on White and exacted from him a promise
hat he would never try to communicate
with Evelyn Thaw again. It was also re
nnrted that while at dinner In the Cafe
Martin, four hours before the tragedy.
Thaw Intercepted a note from White ask
ing Mrs. Thaw to meet him.
Rooms are reported to have been en
gaged In this city for eight Pittsburg wit
nesses for Thaw to be brought to this city
under the care of a Pittsburg detective.
The Thaw Jurors were kept under close
surveillance at their hotel today. The
wives of two of them called last night, but
their guards only permit conversations In
the presence of another Juror and of the
rittshnrsr Wltneaaea Ready.
PITTSBURG, Jan. 2S. Roger O'Mara,
the former superintendent of police of this
city, who was employed by Harry K. Thaw
to gather evidence In his case, will leave
for New York with a number of witnesses
early next week to be present at the Thaw
trial. There Is much speculation as to the
nature of the evidence he has secured.
Several trips that were made by the de-
tective to the Brooklyn residence of Mr.
and Mrs. Charles J. Hujman, the stepfather
and the mother of Evelyn Nesblt Thaw
are taken to Indicate that Mr. O'Mara was
after documents in possession of the Hoi
man family or Information.

My aln bonnie Scotland, I lo'e thee aye
Tho, far I haa wandered frae thee.
These are the opening lines of the dedi
catory poem WTltten by William Hutchin
son of Clan Gordon on the occasion of the
eighteenth annual concert and ball of the
clan which last night marked the one hun
dred and forty-eighth anniversary of the
birth of Robert Burns; and these words
sounded the note to which every Scots'
heart responded during the evening.
After an overture by Prof. Ittner's or
chestra and a selection on the pipes by
Clan Pipers McDougal and Buchanan, Chief
William Kennedy delivered the address of
welcome. In which he took occasion to de
plore the American practice of referring to
the poet as "Bobble" Burns, while at home
today, as well as to his relatives and con
temporaries, he was known as Robert.
Following this address Graham's Male
auartet sang "Annie Laurie. This was
followed by Miss Mae Weaver, who sang
Here's a Health, Bonnie Scotland," In a
manner to elicit applause which would not
be stilled until she responded to the encore
by singing "The Land o" the Leal." . W.
B. Graham sang the ever popular "Loch
Lomond" and for encore gave a popular
song. A contralto solo, "My Aln Folk,"
by Mrs. Verne Miller, brought an encore.
Then came the Highland fling, led ny
Pipe Major George w. McDougal, ana
danced by four of his pupils In the High
land costume and they had to do It all
over again to please the crowd.
Addreaa br Robert Cowell.
Then followed the address of the even
ing, "The Immortal Memory," by Robert
Cowell. Mr. Cowell Is not a Scot, but
he's the next thing to It a Manxman and
he Is as full of his subject as though he
came from the banks of Ayr.
The speaker briefly sketched the early
life ' and struggles of the poet, dwelling
on the character of his parents and their
efforts to tit him for life; of his early
loves and the effect of them on his poems,
saying that to understand the poems of
Burns one must know the life of the 8coteh
peasant of his day; of his brief time under
the smile of fortune and his death, illus
trating his points by copious quotations
from the poems of Burns.
Mr. Cowell treated his topic with the
style of the student of the poet, saying in
"His father was a man of some learn
ing, a gardner who had built his house
with his own hands; the mother a woman
of little learning, but one who Is said to
have had great respect for her husband;
the recording of this fact showing that
this was as remarkable In that day as in
this. These were people fitting for the par
ents of Robert Burns."
The speaker then sketched the early life
of the poet, showing the high respect In
which he held his father, who realised the
value of education and employed a teacher
for his sons, but an old wonan of the
household filled the head of the young poet
with tales of witches and fairies, pro
ducing a lasting effect on the mind of the
boy. Under the personal instruction of
the father, study was confined to serious
subjects. Then came financial loss, and
the children had to work from morning to
night. At 15 years of age Robert was
the principal worker on the farm a plow
boy at 16.
The companionship of Nellie Kllpatrlck
and her songs caused young Burns to turn
his attention to poetry. All poets are
lovers, and Bums was a born lover. Burns
sang of what he knew and wrote as he
felt. Carlysle deplored Burns' poverty, but
had he possessed greater wealth, Scotland
might have lost its poet.
Vpon the death of his father Robert 'be
came the head of the family. His associ
ates were not always the best for a man
of his character. Here he met his "bonnie
Jean" and gave her a contract which, ac
cording to the customs of the time, was
a valid marriage. Jean's father would have
none of this and tore up the paper. This
piqued Robert and he turned from Jean to
Mary. Then they parted, he to go to the
Indies, and within a few months poor
Mary died, and to his affection for her we
owe some of his most beautiful songs. He
was urged to print this poetry, and this
prefaced the way for him at Edlnboreugh.
The rest of his history Is known to all; his
life, his work, his death, surrounded by a
S'.rrowful and loving family, but his last
days were embittered by the loss of friends
who failed him In the hour of his distress.
Burns, said the speaker, owed little to
learning, stlU less to position and Influence,
but what a record he left behind! His
genius was Scotch. He 'was Scotland's
greatest bard; more than that, he was one
of the greatest poets the world has ever
known, and for that reason all the world
where the name of Burns Is known Joms
Scotland in celebrating the Immortal mem
ory of Burns. No poet but Burns ever
touched every phase of human life, and
for' that he Is loved in cottage and palace.
After the addreaa and a selection by tha
orchestra, G. M. Hitchcock made a short
talk, suggesting that a statue of Burns be
erected In Omaha. On motion the chief was
, empowered to name a committee on ways
and means for securing such a statue.
All encore were Ihta ruled out and Mias
New Guinea, the largest Island In the
world. New Zealand and Malyasia were
taken as the topic for the fifth discourse
by Mrs. D. B. Wells last evening at the
First Presbyterian church. "The first mis
sionaries were Dutch," said Mrs. Welln.
"and these went to the Islands in 1861, wher.
they found many cannibals. The iiiIh
slonarles were not deterred, however, for
they said, "wherever there are men, there
should missionaries go.' Warok was In u
pioneer stage In 1S77, when James Chalmers
went to the Islands, but the generations oi'
superstitious and cruel people were changed
In 18S2. The governor of New Zealand wna
enlisted in the work and soon destroyed
the war temples and the villages of the
cannibals. This had a salutary effect and
helped to crown the work of Chalmers with
success. New Guinea does not give much
satisfaction to the missionaries, as but
three are now working there. The mis
sionary of Boeroc, who recently died, had
care of about 2,000 Christians. The Island
of Java, with 25,000,000 Inhabitants, has six
Protestant churches and the number of
Christians Is about 14,000. Tho number of
mission schools is seventy-seven, an In
crease of six in a year.
'Sumatra has a mixed population, and
some estimate the Christians at 100,000.
