of that part of the bill, It has been sug

and at the same time would make It
much more difficult for the railroads to
Bet aside an order pf the commission
through the courts.
Oae Provision Popular.
The section In the bill which has received
unlimited commendation, not only because
It will be effective, but Is an entirely
original idea, la that section which requires
the railroads to practically try their cases
when they make application for a 'tem
porary Injunction. Others, not members
of the legislature, who have studied the
question say this will prove a serious
drawback to the railroads and will enable
the people to get relief while the railroads
are trying to knock out orders of the com
mission. The S-cent fare bill does not meet with
the approval of all the legislators by any
means, because It was not mentioned In
the republican state platform, and because
In his speeches during the campaign Gov
ernor Sheldon absolutely opposed the en
actment of any such law. He spoke against
It publicly and he has by no means changed
his position since he became governor. Be
fore the campaign and since his election
he has said he la for leaving the question
oT passenger rates absolutely to the railway
commission. Whether all the railroads are
rerlously fighting this bill la problematical,
Inasmuch as It would be a great deal easier
and cheaper for them to knock out the bill
should It be not compensatory than would
an order from the railway commission. A
public hearing will 1 hsd on this bill and
the anti-pass bill Tuesday night.
Wheat Railroads Are- Busy.'
In the meantime the railroad lobby Is
getting extremely busy on the terminal
taxation bill and on the direct primary. A

day or two ago a prominent cttlaen of Otoe
county was aaked to corns to Lincoln. He
did so, and members of the railroad lobby
wanted him to "Influence" a certain mem
ber. The Otoe county man promptly de
clined to serve In the capacity of advlsof
for the railroads and went back home, re
marking to the railroad man:
"You have made your bed, now He Jn !t."
It Is told here on good authority that a
number of editors of oountry paper who
have railroad strings on them will be here
off and on during the. coming ten days to
work on certain members against the pri
mary and terminal taxation bills. One
whose name Is suppressed, remarked In the
Lindell the other night that he had re
ceived $26 and a ticket here and back home
for coming to Lincoln In .the Interests of
the railroads. In verification of his state
ment he Is said to have flashed bills to the
amount of $26.

long enough yesterday to misrepresent and

this: 'You are elected on a specific plat
forrd for a specific purpose and unless you
carry out mat platform you will get your
heads cut off.' Mr. Windham In his speech
said he had been for the taxation of rail
road terminals two years ago and If a
member now would vote for It Mr,' Wind
ham helped draft the Slooumb law and get
it adopted many years ago and was hers
only to attend the oounty option hearing
... tumpany wun me county attorney of
Cass county."
Clarke of Douglas corroborated what Mr
Noyee said and added: "I have known Mr.
Windham for years and he stands high
with the people who eom In contact with
him. The only broatb of suspicion I have
ever heard against him has been in the
papery published in Lincoln. He Is in
favor of terminal taxation and If he had
the opportunity would vote for It. He has
had numerous opportunities to get ofllcea,
but he Is not a professional polltlolan and
turned down many chances."
Mr. Noyes then added that Mr. Windham
would have bfn the float representative
from Cass county had he not declined to
be a candidate because of his business,
which needed his entire attention.

Thaw raised her voice as If to call some
one. "I went back to our hotel and told Harry,
and he said: 'The dirty blackguard. He
had no right to speak to you.' Ths next
time I saw him I waa driving to Dr. Dele,
van's office to have my throat treated.
Stanford White was also In a cab. He
just stared at me this time . snd stroked
his mustsche. I turned Into Thirty-third
street, and as I alighted at the doctor's
door I saw Stanford Whit coming. I
rang the bell and th maid cam to the
door, and then I got so nervous and flus
tered I told her I would come back again
and I ran down the steps, got Into th
cab and drove to the hotel, where I told
Harry what had happened. He got very
excited and bit his nails."
These were .the .only Instances, Mrs.
Thaw said, that she told her husband that
White had approached her.
Letter from Thaw Read.
There was a great crowd in th court
room today.- The dramatic thrill of th
day befor were not there, however.
The day began with a continuance of th
reading of the letter from Harry Thaw
to Mr. Longfellow, written after Evelyn
Nesblt's revelation to her suitor In Paris.
There were others, too, which Thaw had
sent the attorney to deliver to Miss Nee
bit, who st the time would not see him.
Mrs. Thaw followed these with a rela
tion of her experiences with Stanford
White and Abraham Hummel, concerning
the alleged affidavit which she made charg
ing Harry Thaw with having token her
from her mother against her will and with
gross cruelty. Mr. Thaw told how she
had been Induced to answer some question
about herself and Mr. Thaw at the time,
and had been told the stories about his
"cruelties to girls." Stanford White had
told her, she declared, that It waa neces
sary to talie drastic measure to protect
her from such a person and Thai Harry
Thaw must be kept out of New Tork. She
denied ever signing any papers In Hum
mel's office, but said she remembered hav
ing signed some papers for Mr. White in
"his offices," the contents of which sho
did not know.
When she got frightened about the papers
snd demanded to see them she said Mr.
White took her to Hummel' office and
there they burned a paper which had her
name at the bottom of it She was not
allowed to see what the paper contained
before It was destroyed.
Hammel Blackmail White.
Mr. Thaw's story was mad amusing at
times by her interjections of the names
which Harry Thaw had applied to the
lawyer and Mr. White's agitated question
ing as to what sha had told Hummel about
him. Sho declared she had told the lawyer
" 'Well' Mr. White said to me, there is
something wrong somewhere. He ha just
squeesed a thousand dollars out of me and
th Lord only knows how soon hs will
quE another.'
"I remember then having told Mr. Hum
mel when he threatened thing about Mr.
Thaw that ha better be careful, for Mr.
Thaw knew a lot of terrible things about
Stanford White."
Th defense endeavored to get Into evi
dence today the wills of Harry Thaw and
of lively n Nesblt Thaw, on the night of
their wedding In Pittsburg. There were so
many Interlineations, additions and erasures
that Judge Fltxgerald held the documents
were not admissible until the changes were
proved. Mr. Del mas said he would later
endeavor to do this, a th wills and th
interlineations and a codicil by Harry Thaw
had to do with the proof tending to show
the Insanity of the defendant It came
out in the discussion of the wills that th
nam of Stanford White occurred In
Thaw' testament '
Plane of Proseeatlon.
Mrs. Thaw will go on with her direct
examination Monday morning. Just what
will bs the nature f District Attorney
Jerome's cross-examination when he takes
th witness Is mere- conjecture. It is said
he may try in some way to attack her
credibility, probably as to her ability to
remember other things as well as she
has the stories she has declared she told
Harry Thaw from time to time.
In an effort to offset the effect of the
testimony given by Mrs. Evelyn Thaw by
attacks on her credibility, since he will
have no opportunity of more direct refuta
tion, the district attorney searched the
city last night for those chorus girls whose
names he has long had as being able to
throw light on the relations that existed
between Bvelyn Nesblt and Stanford
Under the leadership of Roundsman
Berry of Assistant District Attorney Gar
van's office, and P. L, Berghoff, a privets
detective, nine of the county detective
staff were sent to the Tenderloin last night
and told to "bring in" the wltnawes. Two
hours after midnight three young women
hsd been found and, under watch, spent
th night at an uptown hotel.
More Letter from Thaw.
Previous to ths examination of Mrs.
Thaw Mr. Delmss continued to read from a
letter addressed by Harry Thaw to Attor
ney Longfellow. The letter was Incoherent
at times, but dealt all along with his feel
ing toward Miss Nesblt and his desire for
her education and future happiness.
In a second letter read by Mr. Delmss,
written by Thaw to ths witness he spek
of a dress she had and wanted to wear
first for him; another letter to Longfellow
spoke of money and was In a despondent
mood, saying he had nothing to live tor.
Another letter, also to Longfellow, says:
"Being honest has finished me."
