Nehraeka Senator's Resolution Re
affirming Sovereignty Over Canal
Zone Has Right-of-Way.
Some Senators Say Vice President
Made Parliamentary Error.
Resolution Has Enough Support to
Make it Dangerous.
Democrat Drafting neaolntlon of
Their Own, Which Nebraska Sen
ntor Una Practically Acreed
to Accept.
WASHINGTON, Juno 6. Democratic
senate loaders found themselves con
fronted with a parliamentary situation to
day which may force them to accept an
amendment to the Panama tolls exemp
tion repeal, reaffirming tho sovereignty
and rights of tho United States over the
canal zone.
It was discovered that Senator Norrls,
republican, by parliamentary maneuver
ing and aided by a ruling of Vice Prcsl
den Marshall, which some senators say
was a tactical error, has forced to a point
of vantage his resolution providing that
nothing In the repeal shall do construed
as a. surrender by the United States of
Its rights to exempt coastwise, vessels from
Democratic leaders, after canvassing the
situation, are said to hare found that
the Norrls resolution, now In a strategic
position where it commands a vote be
fore tho repeal bill Itself, or other resolu
tions pertaining to It, has enough votes
in Its support to make It a dangerous
quantity to their program.
Confronted with such a situation, re
publican supporters of the Norrls resolu
tion say the democrats aro preparing to
offer a resolution of their own, substan
tially the same, and that Mr. Norrls has
practically agreed to accept.

CHICAGO, June 6. Letters teeming
with words of affection and testimony
concerning association between William
RaPP, Jr., and Mrs. Catherine E. Dean
In her New York home were presented
today In the hearing of the dlvorra suit
of Madame Schumann-Helnk against her
husband, William Rapp, Jr.
Miss Frances J. Ashton, an auburn
haired nurse, who for fivo months lived
in Mrs. Dean's apartments, was ques
tioned, and her close acquaintance with
the doings of Mrs. Dean and Rapp kept
the attention of the crowded court room
and apparently were of Intense Interest
to the diva, who listened intently. A
letter, identified by Miss Ashton as hav
ing been sent by Mr. Rapp to Mrs. Dean,
was Introduced In evidence.
Some of its sentences were.
Dear Nonnlo: This morning brought me
a windfall three letters from you and
a postal from my sister.
You are Just Blmply "Nonnle." God
watch over you and keep you. I do not
pray, but that wish Is as near a prayer
as I can come.
I am falling In love with you all over
again and long to have you at the head
of my modest little home, where your lit
tle heart and hands would control every
thing. Another letter said:
"Dearest Nonnle: Please slgn 'Nonnle'
any not 'Katie.' Anyone may use tho
name Kntle, but Nonnle Is to be secret
and sacred. I look up to you and wor
ship you and am entirely, your Billy."
The One Woman.
The closing words of another letter read
by the attorneys were:
"You are the one woman who can give
mo happiness, once my soul Is at peace
with itself. Your darling. Billy."
Over tho objection of tho counsel for
the defendant, a letter was introduced in
which Rapp asked Mrs. Dean to write a
forcible letter to Madame Schumann
Helnk and to threaten her with a suit
for damages If tho diva coupled Mrs.
Dean's namo with that of Mr. Rapp. In
the letter Rapp gave an outline oC the let
ter which he wished to have written to
Madame Schumann-Hclnk In Chicago.
A letter, couched In similar language
and received by the singer from Mm.
Dean, was later Introduced.
Mtss Ashton told of having seen Mrs.
Dean kiss letters which she said were
from "her Billy."
"What did you see Mrs. Dean and Mr.
Rapp do?" she was asked.
"I saw them hold hands; they kissed
each other and sat in each other's laps,"
was the reply.
Rapp AVore Apron.'
In her wrlttcn-testlmony witness.
Mrs. Elizabeth Hauk, who, said she hurt.
often seen 'Mr, Rapp at the Dean apart
ments, replied to a question, "Is Mr.
Rapp fat or thin?," by saying "not so
thin Just nice."
She also said she had 'frequently seen
him "out walking with Pluto, Mrs.
Dean's dog."
Pluto, the dog, also appeared In tho
deposition of Lillian Schmidt, daughter
of the Dean apartment owner, who told
of being hired by Mark Harrison, thi
actor, who was said to huve also been
a frequent visitor there, to take tho
dog out for exercise.
Tho girl testified she saw Rapp ut the
Dean apartment wearing an apron and
fixing the stove. She declared that Mis
Dean asked him to buy some meat and
called him "honey."
"Once," said the girl, "Mrs. Dean
showed me a letter from Mr. Rapp.
Sho kissed the letter and 1 pretended 1
did not see It, She let me read the let
ter. I don't remember what It said but
It ended 'your faithful Blllle.' "
