Abbatemaggio Tells
of Row Which Led
to His Confession
Twenty Thousand Dollars Stolen from
House and Leaders Take it All Ex
cept Small Sum. "
VITERBO, Italy, March 28.-The trial of
the Camorrlsts. the adjournment of which
on Friday Interrupted the recital of the in
former, Abbatemaggio, was continued to
day. Abbatemaggio, In the last three days,
has received many letters and telegrams
congratulating him on his 'confession and
also has been the recipient of many threats
of what Is In More for one who violates
his vow as a member of "the beautiful
reformed society."
A few correspondents seem bent on mak
ing sport of the situation. Then there are
the inevitable theatrical proportions. One
who describes himself as Bam Charing, an
agen at Milan of an American theatrical
house, offers the Informer $200 a day for
the privilege of exhibiting him In the
United Btates. This Impressed Abbate
maggio, who exclaimed: "Wouldn't It be
funny if, after being shut In a cage like
a bird, I were to go to America and be
come a lion."
Continuing hts revelations today Abbate
maggio described a burglary committed
by the Camorrlsts at the home of Count
Dauqulno In Naples, In which he partici
pated. There was a quarrel over the
division of the booty, which amounted to
$20,000. ' The leaders In the Camorra, In
cluding Cuoccolo, for whose murder the
thirty-six prisoners1 are being tried, Enrico
Alfano, the alleged head of the organiza
tion, and De Maiinla' demanded so large a
share of the spoils that none of those who
artlrelv TIArMcJnAtMl fn th rrtVrlA nwftl vt
more than $50. One Camorrlst who gofT
nothing denounced the burglars; to the
police and some of them were Imprisoned.

Jaee la Threatened Mistake
Made at Klrst.
ST. PETERSBl'RO, Marvh 2S.-The Rus
sian foreign office has telegraphed the
Russian minister at Peking that ChlnH's
reply to Russia's ultimatum is Manufac
tory and expressing the emperor's grati
fication at the happy termination of the
PEKINO. March 28. It is suspected In
the legation quarter that a deep design is
afoot, thinly concealed by the Kunso
Chinese exchanges. There is an, inabllty
to reconcile the contrary attitudes of St.
Petersburg an dthe Russian legation here.
AV'hlle the former has been proclaiming
the necessity of military action against
China the latter has declared that the
troops will not be moved.
It la believed the legation's attitude may
be Intended' to encourage the Chinese, who
are always ready to take part in a con
test of cunning. Yesterday's reply of the
Chinese foreign board to the Russian ulti
matum, read superficially, gives the Im
pression that China complies fully with
the demands made, but carefully studied.
It goes a little beyond this and Is replete
with repetitions that China already has
complied In previous replies.
Accordingly, though the legation quarter
mistrusts Russia's intentions, there Is lit
tle sympathy with the Chinese who evince
delight In deceptive phraseology at a mo
mem wnen me loss or a province may be
The members of the other legations gen
erally think that China should have ac
cepted unequivocally the Russian demands
In Its original reply to the Russian note
of February l and so left Russia before

I sion.
Mrs. Nat Goodwin
is Granted Divorce
Decree Signed by Justice Giegerich
Prohibts Actor from Remarrying
During Life of Former Wife.
NEW YORK, March 28.-An Interlocutory
decree of divorce In favor of Edna Good
rich Goodwin, the aotfess, from her hus
band, Nat C. Goodwin, the comedian, was
signed today by Supreme Court Justice
GleEerich. Miss Goodrich is given per
mission to marry again, but Mr. Goodwin
is denied that permission during the life
time of his former wife.
No alimony was asked by Mrs. Goodwin
In her suit, and the decree carries none.
When they were married In 1H09, a deed
of trust was signed by the comedian con
veying to Miss Goodrich properly In Ban
Francisco and Los Angeles said to be
worth several hundred thousand dollars.
Suit was brought by Miss Goodrich
shortly after the fact of the separation of
actress and comedian became public prop
erty a few months ago.
The decree will become fully effective
upon tho signing of the final decree after
three months have elapsed. . It acts as a
bar upon Mr. Goodwin remarrying In this
state within his former wife's lifetime.

LINCOLN, Msrcn 3S.-Speclal Telcgrsm
The attempt to reconsider the bill ap
propriating llOO.ort) for the medical depart
ment of the I'nlverslty of Nrbraxka to be
finally located at Omaha was defeated in
the house this tnolnltig, u....-ougli Acting
Speaker Quackrnbtisli allowed It to go to a
vote. Immediately after roll call this
morning Hatfield of LancaMer, who has
led the fight for the Lincoln doclois uKsinst
he Omaha school, moved that the recoids
of last night's session be corrected to allow
the insertion of the Kills motion to recon
sider, the bill. ThlH i; necessary if any
reconsideration was to be had as yesterday
was the last day that a reconsideration
could be permitted. Ouackenbush ruled
this motion out of order on a point raised
by Kotouc, who Insisted that the motion
had not been made by Kll:s In time to go
into the record and that he had not htiu
selk asked that It be added to the record.
Hatfield then moved that as a substitute
to adopting the Journal as It stood It khould
be adopted with that motion added. To
give a chance for a roll call upon the merit
of the question the acting speaker allowed
this motion to go, but It was defeated by
41 to 63. Boland was the only member of
the Douglas county delegation who voted
with Hatfield.
The bill will now go to the senate and It
seems quite probable that the upper house
will agree to the expenditure for the good
of the university.
The efforts of K. Beecher Howell to sav
the Water board from destruction ttirouun
the adoption by Omaha of the commission
torm of government were successful this
afternoon when the senate voted to pads
the Banning bill with the Omaha Water
board exempted from Its act.on
The speech of Mr. Hon ell b.f jic lite
ouse committee had this same result when
that body gave its approval to the bill, but
he senate special committee struck out he
peclal provision. Mr. Howell has been
here working for he salvation of the board,
of which he Is a long strvh.g member, ana
finally succeeded. Senators from out li
the stat refused to go Into the details oi

to sav he trouble of 'thinking the' ques

Omaha .Charter. Passes.
The Omaha charter bill passed the senate
without a dissenting vote. As ths bill
oame from the committee the tax levy
maximum is cut down $100,000, but other
wise the bill remains as It was when first
amended by the senate committee. The
principal objections that were' made to It
In regard to the rights of property own
ers In deciding upon paving were all met
by the committee as soon as objections
were made.

Leidlgh of Otoe, In his real for keeping

gressman Charles II. Sloan be compelled
to leave the floor while a vote was In

come on the floor and was xtandlng neui
the Lancaster county delegation talking to
the members. Leidlgh - shouted angrily
that "that man" should be taken off the
floor and the chair ordered the sergeant--at-arms
to lead him away before It was
noticed who he was.
Prince of Hall apologized for the house
and moved that Congressman Sloan be es
corted to a' seat beside the speaker, which
was done by Baker of York while the
house applauded.
Leidlgh saw his mistake and mads hit
personal apology to the member o con
gress. Later th speaker called Mr. Sloan
to the rostrum and he spoke briefly, con
gratulating the members upon their
records, and making a Joke of Leidlgh's
