Beversl of the mbr op posed the motion because a sifting com mittee had been appointed, and they thought this eornmlttee should pa" B he measure, and If It. refused to report It back to the hcuse there would b plenty of time of shooting ever the head of the com mlttee. 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 don today because tha chief executive In the exercise of the prerogatives of his of fice sent a special message to the senate yesterday asking that aome legislation di rected against the lobbyists be enacted The Lancaster "reformer" offered a resolu tion to amend H. R. 18, the ahl-lobby bill, which the governor asked to have consid ered again so that It will Include the gov. srnor as well as the legislators in Its scope. The evident attempt, of the. Lancaster sounty senator to reflect on tne chief ex. soutlve fell rather flat when the resolution was read ami It was' Immediately referred to the committee on Judiciary which has H. R. 18 In charge. . " Just before the resolution was offered , '.he senate administered a spanking to the tenalor' from Lancaster by. turning down several tt " his recommendations for the lnauriince committee, of which he Is chair men. The first " punishment camo when Burns reported on 8. "P. 441, by Bckett, which provides for a leglstativo investiga tion of life Insurance companies. The committee report was for Indefinite post ponement, but tho senate voted to override the committee and place It on general file, ' whero It m!gj)t bo discussed. Immediately after this Burns reported for Indefinite postponement B. F. 590, pro viding regulations relating to the election of directors of mutual life Insurance com. panles. Burns made a plea against allow Ing the bill to go on general file and '.fkened' the present agitation for public regulation of public corporations to the grange movement In the '70a. He declnre-J it would result In a "financial hell'' and said the legislature la treading on danger ous ground. However, the motion of Baokett that the bill go on general Die carried. The discussion on these motions was warm and the friends of Insurance meas ures declared the insurance lobby waa retting In Its work On the Insurance eom nlttee and Epperson aald he did not op poso adverse action on his bill In the com ailttee because he preferred to take his dances before the entire senate. It was tharged that' P. J. Cheney, the Toledo patent medicine manufacturer, had been tiding the Insurance lobby In Us work. Larder's bill providing for a tweive-nour ihtft for Omaha firemen was recommended lor. passage In the senate committee of ihe whole this afternoon without any con llderable opposition.

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. A quietus was put on the 8undny base ball agitation In the legislature today when Aldrlch a bill. 8. F. 230, was Indefinitely postponed without so much as r discussion of Its merits In committee of the whole. A . week or two ago the house killed Its Sunday base ball bill and the action of the senate ends both the bills, which were In troduced to enable the playing of the na tional game In IJncoln on the first day of th- week without the aid or consent of Ttev. Bamuel Zane Batten or anyone else. The senate bill had been changed by amendment, but waa "till acceptable to the fans who were behind the movement The summary action headed oft what promised to be a lively debate on the merits of the bill.

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 bills: V 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 passage. 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. At the afternoon session the following bills were passed: B. F. t By King. ' The anti-pass bill. 8. F. Ill By Wilcox.

I .. , . . .. , From the way I found the Union Pacific i , ... ji. organised It seemed that In order to nave to make certain officials presidents," said Mr. Harriman, smiling, "or In some other way harmonise the organization. I think and I thought a great deal of Mr.' Burt aa a railroad man. I would have, liked to have brought him to New York and had hlra next ( to me. Ho told ma, however, that he -w'lshed to leave the Union Pacific on account of his wife's' health. He had never traveled and he wished to spend a year abroad. We parted the best of friends, and when In New Tork Mr. Burt calls at my home." Effect of Retrenchment. When Mr. Harriman was subsequently asked what would te the effect on general business with the withdrawel of the rail roads from the iron and steel markets, he replied : "I do not wish to answer that question. I have been asked It before." "Would a check to business be the Worst thing that could happen?" -' "It might not b an unmixed evil," Mr. Harriman said. "The railroads now have more business than they can hnndle. A slowing up would mean the curtailment of expenditures, an Increase In the surplus of the rood. It would mean also a lessened demand for labor and a reduced demand for mcney. These , In consequence would become cheaper. "There are various Items In the railroad Improvement the hire of labor, the ma terial, etc. If more must be paid for the hire of money, then there must be a re duction In the amount paid for the cost of material or the hire of labor. "There Is so much money to be spent and the Increased coat of one Item means a decreara in the other two. The railroads must hold net eamlnga and, as I have tried to make plain, the total costs are bound to be distributed. "A check to business Is of o urse better than a full stop," Mr. Harriman added, "but what would be applicable to a full stop will be measurably true of a alow up." Wants I.ecalled AKreements. When Mr. Harriman was asked for a solution of the national problem, he said: "We want the Bhermnn anti-trust law repealed so far as It relates to the rail roads. I believe It waa not intended that Its provtakns should embrace the railroads. It was so asserted at the time the measure was under discussion prior to Its enact ment. In the Transmlssourl case tried un der the Sherman anti-trust law It waa finally held that ail agreements between railroads were In restraint of trade. What the railroads desire is that they be allowed to make agreements under the regulation and supervision of the government. This would allow the railroads to do an Inter state commerce business. "If equitable ratrs and agreements ap proved under the proper authorities of the national government could be Inaugurated, then legislation by states so far as It re lated to Interstate traffic might become null and void. We bel'eve that If the na tional government should approve our rates as being reasonable the action would be reflected In tha State legislatures."

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 New Tork. 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 the trial. 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 stand. 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 hands. - All Featarea of Testimony Reviewed. The testimony of the elder Mrs. Thaw regarding her son's conduct when he re turned home from Europe In 1903, which she described as unusual and unnatural, was given.

Mr. Oarvan finished reading the Icing question at 4:26 p. m., having been one hour and eighteen minutes at the task. Mr. Jerome then arose and asked Dr. Flint If In his opinion aa a scientific man, Thaw, when he shot White knew the nature and quality of the act and that the act was wrong. "In my opinion," aald Dr. Flint, "the person described as Harry K. Thaw, when he shot Stanford White, knew the nature and quality of his act and' knew that the act was wrong." This concluded Mr. Jerome's examination, and he turned Dr. Flint over to Mr. Delmas or cross-examination. Mr. Delmas asked for an adjournment until tomorrow morning to prepare 1 for the cross-examination and Justice Fttx gerald granted the request. DOWIE'S FUNERAL IS QUIET Body Arrayed la White Robe Apostle la Laid to Rest. ol CHICAdO, March 14. The funeral of John Alexander' Dowle was held In Z on City today and, was quiet and unostenta tious. A small portion of the magnificent choir that formerly officiated at the tabernacle m hvmns. The body was arrayed In 4 the wonderful white robe which deceased had worn since he assumed the title of 'first apostle of the Christian Catholic church." . 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 hnM t hu hltrh nlacee in the city of Zlon. They dreamed, and In the grossness of their dreams they thought they had prevailed over the first "Pottle. And now, priests and eldera of Zlon. I shall return to- strike down.
