Aaother Sea.lon n Primary.
The committee appointed to draft a
primary bill will meet again tomorrow
night and the members expect to get down
to work at that time. The Commoner next
week will say this about the primary law:
At the 190 state conventions held In Ne
braska both the democratic party and the
republican party were pledged to a direct
primary law. The democratic platform
"We will pass a comprehensive direct
primary law for the whole state. In which
' party candidates for all offices shall be
nominated by a direct vote of the people."
This pledge could not have been made
mor explicit, and every democratic mem
ber elected upon It or every republican
member elected upon a similar pledge l
- In honor bound to vote for a direct primary
', bill. It has been urged by some republicans
ernd democrats that the direct primary Is
. Impractical, and members of both partlee
In the Nebraska legislature have been ad
vised not to support this reform plan. Thd
merlU of the direct primary law are not
nnrrasarilv under consideration In the pree-
i enee of the fact that both of the great po
I luteal narttea In Nebraska promised the
. fk., jt i . Kr4nlB.tf law wmilit h
enacted. If the plan waa not practical. It
' aftfcutd not have been endorsed by the plat
form: If there are arguments to Justify
democrat or a republican either for that
matter In voting against the direct pri
mary those arguments should have been
presented beYore the state convention and
ut the party and the garty's repreeenta
i lives on record- . .
In the Commoner's hpinlon argument is
bn the side of the direct primary, which
plan Is a great Improvement over the con
. ventlon method of nominating. Conven
tions should be allowed for the framing of
platforms and for the performing of any
worn wnicn cannoi uo auno j r .7.
vote; but the more fully the control of the
party can be kept In the hands of the
rank and file, the better. Authority comes
from the people, and the more directly and
completely the people control, the less dan
ger there Is of the thwarting of the wishes
of the voters.
' Hard Sledding; for Internrbnn BUI.
.Judging from the reception It received to
day In ths senate 8. V. No. . providing
that street railway companies may guar
' antee, buy and own stock and bonds of
Interurban companies, has a rocky road to
. travel before. It Is plaoed on the statute
books. After a long discussion, today. In
. which Joe Burns of Lancaster and Aldrlch
f Butler threw all kinds of doubtful ,com
nllmente at ach other, the bill was sent
back to the gundlng committee for further
consideration and amendment.
: -The peculiar feature of the discussion
was that no one made any direct chargu
against the bill, but several of the sena
tors seemed to fear there was a negro
adroitly concealed somewhere In the wood
pile., .Senator Ashton. of Hall started the
onslaught by offering some amendments
uki.i, umit lh, at mat railway comnantes
to guarantee, but not to own bonds, and
to lease for a limited term, but not own
, iaterurban roads. He declared he believed
-t 4ht effect .of the bill would be to permit a
street railway company to act aa a hold
. lna aomsaay for numerous Interurban
i, companies. He thought this would be bad
. policy and might result seriously In the
t Aldrlch alse had a far-reaching amend
v. ment which would require a starching ln-
vestlgatton by the railroad commission be
. fore any of the Interurban roads could float
. stock or bond Issue.
.- .Thomas, who Introduced the bill, ex
. plained It was merely to permit the Omaha
V Council Bluffs company to build and
operate Interurban roads to the suburbs of
Omaha and waa Intended to go no further.
But the opponents of the bill saw In It a
plan to permit the formation of an Inter
urban railway "trust" or pool. Aldrlch
also opposed It, declaring It would lead to
"high finance" methods hy the companies.
To prevent this he offered his amendment
requiring an Investigation by the railway
commission before stocks or bonds could
Bnraa ana KJaa- Favor It.
' ' Joe Burns of Lancaster got Into the dls
": cession at once with the declaration the
tendency was to regulate too much. He
said the poor bond and stockholders were
able to take care of themselves and de
clared the ateam railways were fighting
the Interurbans and had carried the fight
even Into the senate. ' x' "
King of Polk favored the bill declaring
It was necessary to permit the street rail
ways ; to back Interurbans In order that
the Interurbans might be built aa the de.
velopment of the atate required. He said
Aldrich's amendment should be attached
to another statute and that he waa Work
ing on. a bill which covered the same
ground.. He declared' the amendment .If
attached to this Dili would be null as It
did not provide for the - organisation of
corporations, but for the owning of stuck
after -the corporation waa ' formed. ' He
denouneed the feeling agalast Omaha and
IJncol apparent In some of the legislators.
An exchange of repartee between. Bums
and Aldrlch which caused applause In
the well filled gallery, closed he debate.
Burns 'declared Aldrlch waa trying te
strangle the babe ' before Its birth. AU
ditch vesuonded he was dealing with cont
dltlons -and, not with the Iroagtaibge of s

NEW YORK, Jan. 81. Sensations were
frequent In the Thaw murder trial today
and before the two sessions of court had
ended three sworn Jurors had been Ye
leaaed from further servloe In the case,
making five In all summarily excused from
the trial panel during the last three days.
Regarding two of the released Jurors no
explanation was made In court. The third
was allowed to go on a physician's cer
tificate that his life would) be Imperiled by
the close confinement of Jury service.
Three talesmen were summoned to replace
these, so that when the situation under
went a survey at the close of the day,
there were again eleven men In the Jury
box, the same number that had been seated
at the close of yesterday's session.
Rumors were current tonight that the end
of the Jury changes la not yet In eight.
and that further chapters may be added
to what has already become an unprece
dented record In criminal procedure In New
Tork. There were several conferences of
attorneys this afternoon. In which District
Attorney Jerome Is said vigorously to have
urged the release of still another Juror.
Thaw's counsel, however, are said to have
blocked every effort of the prosecuting of
fleer In thle direction.
Friction Among Attorneys.
Tne disagreement which first developed
In Justice Fitzgerald's chambers half an
hour before the afternoon session began.
was resumed In open court at the Judge's
desk twice thereafter, and engendered
bitter feeling among the attorneys. Here
tofore the relations of the district attorney
and his assistant with Thaw's counsel have
been of the friendliest nature. Thla after
noon there was friction of the most ap
The first of the day's sensations came
Immediately after a tardy opening of the
morning session. District Attorney Jerome
announced that It had been unanimously
agreed to relieve Jurors David S. Walker
and Louis Haas from further service. Mr,
Walker, who Is a son of John Brlsben
Walker, was No. 4, and Mr. Haas was No.
on the Jury roll. Neither could offer
an explanation for the court's action In
ordering their discharge.
Rnmor Of Further Dt.ehnrarea.
It was taken for granted that the re
lease of these two Jurors had ended the
day's surprises, but during the luncheon
recess rumors of a . further reduction In
the personnel of the Jury were put In cir
culation and these were given color when
It was learned that another earnest con
sultation of counsel with Justice Fltxgerald
was In progress. The name of the Juror
under consideration was again dlscursed
bout the court building. It was also
stated that he was a Juror, whom Thaw
and his counsel had been particularly
pleased to have on the trial panel and that
the lawyers for the defense would fight
to the last any effort to dislodge him.
Thaw's attorneys had been none too willing
to allow Messrs. Walker and Haas to be
replaced and It was only after a long ar
gument by the district attorney that they
consented In the case of the third man.
The conference was one of some warmth.
When no announcement was made of fur
ther discharges it was taken that Mr.
Hartiidge and others of Thaw's counsel had
won the battle with the district attorney.
The examinations of the talesmen, called
fter the first conference, were carried on
under circumstances Indicating that feeling
existed on both sides, and once a talesman
nearly 80 years old. Wham neither side ap
peared to want, came very near to taking
the oath because Mr. Jerome - refused to
carry on the examination when counsel for
the defense declined to give Immediate
consent to the proposed juror's withdrawal.
Thaw's attorneys also declined' to examine
the talesman and all challenges for cause
had been withdrawn when Mr. Jerome at
the last moment Interposed a peremptory
challenge for the people.
Another Lively Ara-nmen,t.
Mr. Jerome then called another confer
ence. Which was held this time at the
Judge's desk. There was gesticulating and
an Indication of a lively argument, but
again to no avail, and the regular proceed
ings were resumed. ,
Toward the end of the afternoon session a
messenger came from the district attor
ney's office. There was a whispered consul
tation with Justice Fltxgerald and the at
torneys and it was announced that because
of 111 health Juror No. 11. Henry I. Klein
berger, a silk merchant, . would be relieved
from further service. . Mr. Kleinberser.s
physician had Informed the district's of
fice of the danger to the patient's heart and
It was agreed that he should be exouaed.
Three Jnrora Seenred.
Two of the three Jurore added to the panel
were secured at the morning session. They
are Oscar A. Pink, a salesman, 48 years old,
who replaced Mr. Walker as No. 4, and
Wilbur 8. Steels, a manufacturer, 80 years
old, who replaced Haas aa No. 8. The Juror
aecured to replace Mr. Klelnberger as No.
11 Is Joseph B. Bolton, (7 years old, a clerk.
It Is believed the twelfth Juror will be
secured tomorrow, but the uncertainty as
to the term of, service of a Juror now sit
ting on the trial panel was ao strong that
predictions are all but worthless.. It was
said tonight that Thaw's attorney might
give In to Mr. Jerome's demand for the ex
cuse of a juror, if he In turn would agree
to the excuse of a Juror which the defense
does pot altogether view with favor. This
could not be verified. The release of so
many sworn jurors has resulted In the In
crease by ten of the peremptory challenge,
allowed each side. The defense has used
twenty-nine of Its original thirty and now
has eleven left. The prosecution has twen
ty peremptory challenges still at Its com
-District Attorney Jerome announced today
for the first time that he had decided not
to make the opening address to the Jury.
He will turn the task over to his assl.tant,
Francis P. Oarvan, who has had Immediate
charge of the Thaw case ever since ths
night ot the Roof Oarden tragedy.

Thomas from the wreckage, but the man
was unconscious and only lived a short
while, although everything possible wss I

With the exception of Deutch, alt the In-,
Jured were able to go to their respective
being attended by Surgeons Harris and
Heine, who worked like Trojans to relieve
the suffering of those who had been caught
In the wreck. The excitement was aug
mented by the breaking of the water
hydrant, which sent forth a great deluge 1
ot water and made the work of rescue
extremely more difficult, as the rescuers
and physicians were forced to wade
through half a foot of water.
Wife, bnt No Children.
Mr. Thomas was 64 years of age and sur
vived by a wife, but no children. Two sis
ters, Nellie Thomas and Mrs. F. B. Shrack,
reside In Philadelphia. A brother, Charles
Thomas, also survives. Word has been sent
to 231 Market street, the address of the
Thomas worked for the Willow Springs
Distillery company as teamster for eighteen
years, later going to the Baum Iron com
pany, for whom he worked several years.
He waa stricken with pneumonia about
Christmas time and returned to his work
last Tuesday. At the time of the accident
he was In a weak condition.
No One In Store.
There was no one In the drug store of
Mr. Caughlan at the time of the accident,
on account of ths early hour, but the door
of the store was broken In by the colli
sion, and the police at the city jail were
immediately notified by 'phone.
Officials of the street car company were
soon on the acene and Immediately placed
a large crew of men at work removing the
wreckage and traffic waa not impeded.
The car ia a total wreck, the front vesti
bule and the entire right side of the car
to Its center being smaahsd Into bits, and
the roof was torn off when the car struck
the drug store building.
The precipitation of the previous night of
half snow and sleet made street car tracks
all over the city slippery and dangerous,
.nd motormen and conductors generally
wei on the lookout for cedents.
It wa only ty the greatest good for
tune that r.iok Derrick, a painter wh
resides at 1612 South Fifth street, escaped
a death similar to that of Thomaa. When
the car dashed down the long hill toward
the fatal curve, Derrick waa atandlng In
the entrance to the drug store, only four
feet from Thomas. When Derrick Saw the
car leave the track he Immediately Jumped
from Its path and escaped being crushed
or cut with the shower of broken glass
when the car crashed into the show win
