from the university and from the
state farm. All of the money expended
for buildings will have to be taken from
the funds rulsed by the 1 mill' levy.
The senate also applied the pruning knife
to the Kearney Industrial school appropria
tion by cutting out the i,000 expenditure
for the purchase of additional land. The
fund for building and furnishings at the
. .Norfolk asylum waa cut 19,000, $5,000 was
lopped off the bill providing for an appro

In committee of the w"hole tonight the
house unanimously recommended for pas
sage fl. F. S2T). the Aldrich bill to reduce
freight rate 15 per cent on certain com
modities. Several amendments were sub
mitted, but the house was In no mood
for amendments and they were, all voted
down with very f.w votes In their favor.
Rejikel of Tied Willow wanted to strike
"live stock" out r-f the' bill, and Snyder
of Harlan said the live stock shippers
had no complaint to make of ratee. but
what they wanted was service. Dodge of
Douglas was of the opinion the entire
mutter should be left to the railway com
mission and he made a lengthy review of
the history of the commodity freight rate
bill killed by the Inst legleisture. and In
asmuch as the bill will not go Into effect
for ninety days he thought It unnecessary.
Orel. Jen Icon. Noyee, Hsge, Melster snd
Whlthsm were for the bill, while Farley
thought It all right If It did not tie the
hands of the commission on these com
modities during the ninety days before It
goes Into effect. Cone of Blunder said
the bill wa not a maximum freight rnte
bill, but was a political measure pure and
simple and absolutely of no effoct except
that It would force the railroad to com
before the commission and make a showing
If the rate were not compenatory. The

Hla Emphatic Protest Thaw's
lawyers Pleased with
NEW TORK, March 28.-Harry K. Thaw
for two hours today submitted himself to a
running fire of questions from, the thre
men appointed by Justice Fltxgerald a a
commission In lunacy to determine his
present state of mind. The examination
was conductod behind closed door and.
when a few minutn before t o'clock thl
afternoon an adjournment wa taken until
10 o'clock Saturday morning, no one at the
hearing would discuss the details. Thaw
went willingly and confidently before hi
Judges, and when the two hour secret
session wi concluded hi attorney ap
peared with smiling face and declared
they were more than satisfied with the
course of the proceedings. District At
torney Jerome hurried away from the
criminal courts building declining abso
lutely to say one word about the commis
Scope of Iaaalrr Limited.
The most Important feature of the day
wa the decision of the commission to limit
the scope of Its Inquiry to the exact lan
guage of the statute to determine solely
the question as to whether or not Harry
K. Thaw Is able today to understand the
nature of the court proceedings against
him and la able to advise his counsel In a
rational manner. District Attorney Jerome
announced to the commission that all the
legal expert he had employed In the Case
had advised him -that Thaw was suffering
from a typical case of paranoia a disease
of the mind In which the recoveries are
limited to 1 or 8 per cent. He offered to
adduce testimony to support thl state
ment, but the commission waived It aside,
saying the purpose of the inquiry wa a
very simple one and Jiad to do not with
any classification of mental disease, but
with the prisoner' present state of mind
aa Judged by laymen.
In laying down this decision the commis
sion confronted the district attorney with
the very position he has maintained in
putting Thaw on trial for his life. Mr.
Jerome contends Thaw was suffering from
paranoia on the night of June 26 last,
when he shot and killed Stanford White,
but he added that paranolacs often have
knowledgo of what they are doing and
that Thaw knew the nature and quality of
his act In killing White and knew that the
act was wrong. Thus, while medical ex
perts may determine today that Thaw Is
still suffering from paranoia, the question
to which the lunacy commission had ad
dressed Itself deal solely with Thaw's
knowledge a to the proceeding against
him and his ability to advise his lawyers.
Jerome's Protest Overrated.
The commission got under way with a
rush this afternoon and plunged at once
Into the personal examination of the de
fendant. District Attorney Jerome pro
tested at first that he was not able to pro
ceed, saying he would like to have his
medical advisers present. He finally stated
he would have no objection to the examina
tion going forward providing he was per
mitted to reserve hi croc examination.
The commission forthwith settled the
question of experts by excluding them from
the room, along with everyone else, except
the defendant and his counsel, the district
attorney and Assistant District Attorney
Oa-ryan. A to .the crews examination by
Ihe district attorney the commission. Said'
the matter would be taken up when It wo
- It la stated that during most of the two
hour Thaw was before the commission the
notes and letter he has written to hla
counsel alnce the trial bogan were tinder
consideration. TO put Thaw thoroughly at
eaae the commissioners addreased their
questions to him In a conversational tone
and in a casual manner, aa though he were
In conference with them, asked him from
time to time to explain Incidents In the
trial which had called forth certain of the
letter placed before the commission by
Thaw' attorney. It waa said that Thaw
answered the questions calmly and went
Into lengthy explanations of some of the
notes he had addressed to Mr. Delmaa
while hla trial was In progress. These notes
and letters were made a part of the af
fidavit filed by Mr. Delmas with Justice
Fltagcrald when Thaw's counsel were op
posing the appointment ef a commission.
Ro Session Friday.
Thaw's examination waa not concluded
today and he will appear again before the
commission when it meet Saturday morn
ing, no session being scheduled for tcmor
row Oood Friday.
- The Ba turd ay session will be held behind
closed doors. The commission did not de
termine whether or not a physical examine
Man of the defendant would be necessary.
There was an Intimation, however, that the
men who are to report as to Thaw's pres
ent condition would content themselves
with an observation of him during his men
tal examination. One commisttoner,' Dr.
rutsel, 1 a physician and an expert In
mental diseases. If the commission should
decide a physical examination Is necessary
Dr. Putiel will probably make. It.
The commission began Its Inquiry today
by an open session, called to order shortly
after o'clock, In the room where the Thaw
trial has been In progress since January t3.
Thaw appeared to be In excellent spirits and
sat unflinchingly under the steady gasa the
comrrfUuloners turned upon him. In the big
court room there were only the newspaper
reporters and three of the prisoner's fam
ily, his wife. Evelyn Nesbit Thaw, who ha
never missed an' opportunity to be near
him since he was placed on trial, and his
two brothers. Edward and Joslah Thaw.
Clifford W., Hartrldge, acting aa counsel
of record for Thaw,' stated to the comml
ion that hls-client was ready at any time
to submit to such examination as the com
mission desired. His only request was that
the hearing should be private.
"Being a prbxmer on trial for his life,"
sold Mr. Hartrldge. "he feela he should be
protected us far as possible In this matter."
Jerome's Kaperts Exoladed.
' Chairman MoClure then announced that
whatever examination of Thaw the com
mission might decide upon would be held
behind closed doors. District Attorney
Jerome protested.. He said he would like
to have his medical advisers present. He
had called the court's attention to Thaw's
mental state upon reports submitted to him
by ths alienists and he felt thelr presence
was essential. Mr. Jeratn remarked that
If the commission resolved Itself Into a
body of medical examiners and undertook a
physical examination of ths defendant In
private, he would not attend such an exam
ination. . '
"But ths law requires you to attend the
session of the commission," suggested
"I shall sttend all sessions of the com
mission sitting as Judges In lunacy," re
plied Mr. Jerome, "but I am not required
to attend a board of medical examiners."
It was after thla oUloquy with the district
attorney that the commlsslta decided to
proceed at once with Thaw's mental ex
amination and the court room was cleared.
t Ouce during the fallowing two hours Dis
trict Attorney Jerome came outslda. He
was plied with questions aa to how the ex
amination was prrareneUts;, but would make
no direct reply. Ills shsence was taken to
Indicate that the commissioners were con
ducting their own examination according
to plans previously agreed upon among
Thaw's attorneys while they would not

Referring tonight to the day' proceed
ings Mr, Hartrldge said:
"Harry came out with flylna; colors. He
remembered more about the case than I
did. We ore confident of the outcome."
It Is understood the commission proposes
to take Thaw through the trial from Its be
ginning In order to test his memory as to
what has occurred In the court. To this
end. It was stated, the prisoner was ques

him In the selection of the Jury.

The bombardment of ths three village
In the Vlaschka district In' which rioters
had taken -refuge undoubtedly resulted In
a large casualty list, but the exact numbers
cannot be learned. It Is known, however,
that several hundred peasants were ar- j
There have been sanguinary encounters In
the district of DolJ and rumor places the
number killed and woundod In encounters
with the troops at several hundred.
The authorities' are beginning to- use ar
tillery to bombard the villages where the
rioters take refuge.
The peasants committed terrible atro
cities In the Buseo district, and the troops '
sent thither had order to suppres the dis
turbance at any coat.
It Is still impossible to give even an
approximate estimate of the number killed
or wounded since the beginning of the dis

that the reports have not been exaggerated
and that when the totals Anally ar learned
they will be greater than Is now supposed,
