Primary Reglstratloa gtaads.
The f unionists of 'the house this after
noon tried to kill H. R. T, a bill providing
ft frustration of voters on primary day.
la the commute of the whole the fuslon
lets wert euceeKuful, but when It came to
a roll call on the motion hot to concur In
the committee report, enough republican
stood for this most vital companion of the
primary bill to overcome the deflections of
republicans and the horde of fusloniets, led
by Cone ;f Bnundera. and the very honor
able Mr. Qunrkenbush of Nemaha, whom
the republicans surrendered to a few days
ago. Borne of the republicans voted to
kill the bill In retaliation' for the tleup
of republicans and fuslonlsta, while others
believed It would result. In too many voters
getting out In the large cities enO, towns.
Dodge and Walsh both spoke for the bill,
while Cone spoke to kill It. The rote was
4 to St In favor of passing the bill.
Once more the tun Is shining In the office
of the state auditor and In tha office of the
land commissioner for their recent hard
labors have borne fruit In great gobs for
thorn. The house this morning Indefinitely
postponed H. R. "426 by Hurt of Tork. the
bill to remove Mr. Eaton and Mr. Pearls
from the Btate Board of Equalisation and
Assessment White It lived the bill was a
mighty nightmare to these two men, but
Its friends found the persistent appeals
made by Baton and Bearls to stand by the
nominees of the repttblkiah state conven
tions had done Ita work and there was no
occasion for a fight. The pops too, It was
understood, would vote to retain these men
on the board In the hope they would make
some campaign thunder next fall.
Among the bills which the committee of
the whole renommended for passage was
8. F. 2S0, thf same as tha McMullen bill,
providing the state treasurer shall be the
ex-offlclo treasurer of the Btate university
and shall pay out the Morrill fund, the
Hatch fund, the Adams fund and the cash
fund without appropriation by the state
legislature. Cone t Baunders fought the
bill bard. He called attention to the letter
by Hon. Peter Mortensen, who set out the
dangers In such a measure In that It al
lowed the" regents to aide step the const!'
tutlon which provides , the state auditor
shall .audit' and Investigate every claim
filed against the state. Tha auditor .does
not. audit the university accounts, and
under this bill whan It becomes a law, when
the regents say pay, tha auditor must
draw his warrant. When this la done the
state treasurer must hand over the money
and no injunction can restrain him be
cause he Is the. university treasurer and
not the state treasurer in this case. Cone
fought like a man to safeguard the state
money, but the university lobby headed by
Regent Allen Was too much for him and
. be went down to defeat, almost alone.
Barns, Slnra Governor. v
Joe Burns of Lancaster, who has always
stood out against any legislation curbing
tha power of the railroad and other lobbli-a,
took a lert-handed Jab at ' Governor Shel

the exercise of the prerogatives of his of

yesterday asking that aome legislation di

The Lancaster "reformer" offered a resolu
tion to amend H. R. 18, the ahl-lobby bill,
which the governor asked to have consid

The evident attempt, of the. Lancaster

The child labor bill had a setback when
It came up before the senate today for
final pasnnge. After considerable discus
sion It was referred back to the committee
of the whole for specific amendment. Borne
of the country members are still dissatis
fied with the bill because they thought
that amendments adopted by the committee
of the whole were satisfactory to the agri
cultural Interests, but when It came up
today Byrnes of Platte wanted It aent
back for another' amendment, and this
was done. The friends of the measure
voted for the motion In order to head off
another one by McKesson of Iancaster to
send It back to the agricultural committee.

LINCOLN. March 14.-8peclal.)-House
Tbtl No. IS. Jenlson's aptl-lobby bill, which
was killed by the senate the early part
of the week and revived again at the Re
quest of Governor Sheldon, waa before the
senate this morning, having been returned
by the house. At the request of McKesson
of Lancaster, who said he would support
the bill If It were properly amended, It
was referred to the 'Judiciary committee
after the vote Indefinitely postponing It had
been reconsidered. A disposition to pass
the measure was evident but those who
opposed It probably will Insist on some
changes being made In It. At present it
prohibits psld lobbyists from seeking to In
fluence members of the legislature upon
any- subject but It does not forbid persons
who are Interested themselves In measure
working with the legislators.
Either from the reaction against the lob
byists manifested yesterday or because
they took the hint that they were not
wanted, very few of them showed up In
the senate today and the gallery and lobby
waa almost entirely deserted.
In committee of the whole the senate
this morning passed on the following
H. R. 110 By Scudder. Forbidding the
stealing of rides on passenger and freight
trains. For Pasaage.

8. F. 384 Relaxing to the Btate Bureau
of Commerce and Stttistlcs and conferring
upon It the- powers to Investigate corpor
ations given t the national bureau. For
The . principal discussion came on the
last named bill. Ashton of Hall thought
the powers conferred were too brood,
as they permitted the investigation of any
business that is Incorporated. Root offered
an amendment limiting these' powers to
public utility corporations, but the amend
ment was voted down, King declaring that
the wholesalers and retailers in certain
classes appeared to be In a combination,
and might need investigation. ' Clarke of
Adams secured the adoption of an amend
ment Including hotels in the list of con
cerns within the scope of the law. The
bill was recommended for passaga.

HYPOTHETICAL QUESTION READ TO fXPtRT
It Contains is.OtM) Words and tow
tains All Evidence la Case
Haainael Caatradteta Mrs.
Thaw's Testlmoay. ,
NEW YORK. March ji-AnsWerlnr the
same hypothetical question. In response to
which the alienists of the defense declared
Harry K. Thaw waa suffering from an un
sound mind and did not know the nature
or quality of his act when he shot and
killed Stanford White, Dr. Austin Flint,
the first expert called today by . District
Attorney Jerome In rebuttal, declared It to
be his opinion that Thaw positively did
know (he nature and quality of his act
and knew that the act was wrong. When
court adjourned Mr. Delmaa had not be
gun hla cross-examination of Dr.' Flint,
who Is the first of six alienists to be called
by Mr. Jerome.
After receiving Dr. Flint's answer to the
Delmas hypothetical question, Mr. Jerome
had read to the witness the prosecution's
hypothetical question which contained some
15,000 words and which required one hour J
and eighteen minutes In the reading. Dr.
Flint again said without qualification that
Thaw knew his act was wrong ' and Is
therefore liable for the murder In the first
degree under the statutes of the state of
Mr. Delmas Indicated that he would cross
examine each expert searchlngly. Mr.
Jerome's sanguine prophecy that the taking
of testimony would be concluded by - to
morrow night has been abandoned, and
those concerned In the case again look to
April 1 as the earliest moment of closing
Ilnnimel Contradicts Mr. Thaw.
Abraham Hummel was on the stand again
today and before Mr. Delmas could object
to a question put by Mr. Jerome the wit
ness had got Into the record the statement
that Evelyn Nesblt had told him that sho
had Informed Harry Thaw lo Tarls in
1P03 that Stanford White positively had not
drugged or betrayed her. Mr. Delmas at
first moved, to have the question and an
swer stricken from the record, but as the
district attorney seemed about to consent
to this plea, he Insisted that the answer
Hummel's further testimony was halted
until Mrs. Evelyn Nesblt Thr.w again takes
the stand to testlfas to whether or not
Hummel was acting as her attorney when
she made the statements to him which
were afterward embodied In an affidavit
It was reported tonight that District At
torney Jerome may be called to the witness
stand In sur-rebuttal by the defense. The
purpose, It was sold, was to question Mr.
Jerome as to certain actions against Abra
ham Hummel, who was a witness today.
This move was taken as a reason for the
defense allowing much of the Hummel
testimony to stand today. t
Dr. Flint's Testimony.
Dr. Flint when called to tha aland stated
his qualifications as an expert. He said
he had for' twenty-five years made a spe
cialty of mental diseases and has many
times testified a an expert. He said he
. , ... . , ..
rod read letters placed In evidence, the
... . . .. , .. . . '
will and codicil und the letter to Anthony
. . . ,, , . .
Comstoek. Mr. Jerome then began to read
tn . ,
which Mr. Delmas had submitted to hi.
experts. When he had concluded reading
the Delmas question to Dr.. Flint District
Attorney Jerome said:
"AssumlnaalMhese facts to be true, did
the man who shot and kilted another know
the rature and. quality of the act and
know that the. act was -wrong?"
Mr. Jerome put hs question In the form
of the statute which defines the character
of the Insanity which excuses crime.
"In my opinion," replied pr, Flint., "he
knew the nature and quality of his act and
knew that the act was wrong."
Mr. Jerome now said his own hypo
thetical question would be read to the wit
ness. He Asked all the., otfier experts to
listen closely, evidently In the hope that
vhen the time comes Mr. Delmas will not
Insist tlpon the question being re-read to
each witness. The district attorney culled
upon bis assistant, Mr. Garvan, to read the
question, and when Mr. Garvan began
Jerume left the room. Thaw's counsel,
with copies of the question In their hands,
followed the reading closely.
Jerotnr's Hypothetical Qnestlon.
The hypothetical question covers prac
tically all of the evidence In the rase. It
contained about 15.000 words. Throughout
the question Thaw was referred to as
"H. K, T," and Evelyn Nesblt as "E. N."
The question covered the. entire life of
Thaw, as It has been testified to by various
witnesses. It told of Thaw's various dis
eases as a child, of measles, mumps,
whooping cough and St. Vitus dance. In
1001 Thaw met Evelyn Nesblt, then a
chorus girl. Boon after he sent her a $50
bill lr. a boquet, which she returned to
him. He saw her at various times, and
finally In March, 1903, he sent the girl and
her m ther to Europe, where he Joined
them. In June In Paris he proposed mar
rlig't to her, but . she refused him.
Practically In her own worda the ques
tion detailed her story of what happened
In the Twenty-fourth street studio on the
night on which she claimed Stanford White
betrayed her. The effect of this story on
Thaw was detailed at length, ta was the
trip which Thaw and Evelyn Nesblt, travel
ing as man and wife, made in Europe. The
story of the subsequent relations of the
two was then gone into. Including the
second European trip, the marriage and
other events leading up to the night of
June 8. when Thaw shot Stanford White
on the roof garden. Several thousand words
were required to give the substance of
James Clinch Smith's testimony regarding
Thaw's actions on the roof garden before
the shooting, this being the testimony on
j which the district attorney principally re
lies to show that Thaw waa not Insane
when he did the shooting. Then came a
long description of the actual shooting.
Thaw's letters, the will and codicil and
the letter to Anthony Comstoek, all of
which are In evidence, were then referred
to, as were tha convetsotlons between Thaw
and his wife, in which he told hsr of other
girls whom he said had suffered at White's

Six weeks before he died, John Alexander
Dowle prepared his own funeral sermon.
It was decided not to permit It to be read
at the funeral, however, leat It should bring
greater dissension In Zlon City. The re
ligious settlement Is now torn asunder by
factions. In an effort to bring the warring
Interests together, Judge Barnes preached
a simple sermon. In which he extolled the
good qualities of the dead man.
The sermon prepared by Dowie was given
out for publication. This sermon makes tt
plainly evident that Dowla did not forgive
his enemies before he died, as he lashes
those who ousted him from control as
"dogs of hell."
The sermon concludes as follows:
I shall return, and with ruthless hand
shall 1 exterminate the vipers and the dogs

When the riot reached Its height and the
police saw that they would be unable to
cope with It by ordinary means they began
firing over the heads of the crowd, but this
only Increased the fury of the mob. The
surging mass of men and boys then made
a determined attack on the police.

Twelve policemen. In addition to Captain

Forty Cars start.
The fifth day of the street railway strike
showed some betterment over yesterday's
meager service, about forty cars being run
by this morning. All were manned by Im
ported strike breakers.
The oars were screened with heavy wire
netting, to protect motormen and con

ued to carry most of the passengers. The
police, with an added force of 100 extra
men, appear to have the situation well In
hand. The mounted police ' have been
brought In from the suburban districts and
are being used to accompany aome of the
cars through districts which have been
scenes of disorder.
Police Captain Thomas O'Reilly was sus
pended todsy for Insubordination. He was
ordered to put six of his men on a car
