|BLIGHTED BY THE THAW CASE
The fecent conviction and senteno
ing to state prison of Dan O'Reilly for
his participation in a theft dommitted
in New York serve to draw attention
to the remarkable series of misfor
tunes attending various persons con
nected.with the Thaw case. O'Reilly
was one of the lawyers on the Thaw
side and has never had a day's luck
since he was mixed up in it.' While
the crime for which he has been sen
tenced and which disbars him as a
lawyer had nothing to do with the
case of Thaw, many believe that it
was the nemesis of the White tragedy
which worked his undoing. So far
the lives of thirteen persons mixed up
one way or another in the case have
been blighted.
Of the other lawyers besides O'Reil
ly who figured in the case Clifford W.
i\, ~ Hartridge is facing disbarment pro
ceedings growing out of statements
made in connection with it. He had
to sue Mrs. Thaw, mother of Harry
Thaw, for his fees and a bill of particulars was demanded. In furnishing
this he told of trips he made seeking witnesses, of sums of money paid to
buy the silence of certain persons and of excursions to various resorts entail
ing large expenditures. His revelations brought upon him the censure of
the New York Bar association and proceedings to disbar him are now in
the courts.
A. Russell Peabody, who was associated In Thaw's defense, is dead and
so are two other lawyers-John and George Lee, members of an old southern
familf. Still another was Delphin Michael Delmas, who came out of the west
and who on the second trial of Thaw introduced the famous plea of dementia
Americana or brain storm. Fle has had no big cases since.
MISSES HIS WEATHER GUESS
"Professor Moore's rainstorm" has
been the topic of much jocund com
ment in \Vashington. Before now the
weather tvmau has played a potent
part in fixing the fame of great men.
Noah, for example, might be compar
atively unknown save for a rainstorm
of unprecedented violence, and sub
sequent history abounds in similar in- IN
stances, culminating in "Professor
Moore's rainstorm" of the night of the
lawn fete which crowned the silver
wedding anniversary of the president
and Mrs. Taft.
Twenty-four hours previous, when
Washington was bedecking itself and
joyously entering upon the task of
making the silver weddirig anniver
sary a close second to the corona
tion festivities of that pther Anglo
Saxon ruler, George of Gitaat Britain;
when Washington was donning its
most spotless duck trousers and
sheerest" gowns, Professor Moore,
sequestered in the innernost cham
ber of the weather buregi building, announced that it was going to rain.
I , "' Washinryn drooped; it talked sadly of the impending down
F6 . 1 fbrellas and goloshes. But the Moore rainstorm was
like ub o the mystery of the empty box-there was nothing in it.
A tranquil afternoon was followed by an ideal evening. Every silvery
star that was permitted by astronomical laws twinkled down on Washington.
Therefowe, there is much jocund comment on "Pr-ofessor Moore's rain,
storm." And, coupled with the "storm," are many mentions of that other
day in President Taft's administration which the weather likewise made
memorable-the day of the inauguration. The weather man predicted that
March 4 would he a pretty fair day, a serviceable inauguration day if not an
ideal one. Then came the blizzard that buried Washington inches deep in
slush, broke down telegraph poles, tied up train service and almost snowed
in the weather office.
ITHREATEN SENATOR'S TOGA1
~~ It is repor-ted in Washinglon that
the election of Senator Stephenson oi
Wisconsin, the lumber king, is to be
investigatedl by the senate committee
on privileges and elections.
- Senator Isaac Stephnenson is a na.
tive of New Hampshire, where he war
born in 1829. After a brief residence
at Bangor, Me., he located in Wis
-~ consin and for a time was a farm Ia
borer. Seeing the prospect of mak
/ ing money in the lake transportatior
business, he purchased a schooner anc
I '~ff ~,operated it successfully between Mil
7 waukee and Escanaba. His savingm
he invested in timber lands, whici
then could be purchased cheaply, anc
gradually became the owner of vast
tracts of valuable standing timber
Years ago he was a multimillionaire
and every day now adds to his im
Si monse hoard. He is also a banke1
- -.---and is financially interested in varn
ous enterprises. Hack in the compar
tively early days of his career he was elected to the Wisconsin legislature
and sat in that body fr-om 18664 to 18G8. In 1883 he was elected to congress
retaining his seat until 1889. and in 1907 he was elected to the United Stater
senate to fill an unexpired term ending in 1909. It is his subsequent election
for a full term that is to be made the subject of a senatorial inquiry.
One of the most deeply beloved of
the royalties of Europe is ex-Queen
Margherita of Italy, who, it is said,
will pay a visit to the United States
in the fall. It has long been her am- -
bition to see the country whereo so/
many of her race have found a home, /
but even royal personages cannot\
travel when they choose, and the visit
had to be postpone~d. It is probable
of her coming.
The ex-queen is a daughter of the- /
late Prince Ferdinando of Savoy, ii1
duke of Genoa. When only 16 years I
old she became the bride of King
Hlumnbert, second king of United
Italy, which this year is celebrating ~
the fiftieth anniversary of its inde
pendence. Eleven years ago she was
left a widow owing to the assassina
tion of her husband by the Anarchist
Blrescia. She is now 00 years old Y
and still retains much of her beauty. (~
Since her husband's death she has
devoted herself greatly to charity and has endeared hrerself to the Italians. I
was her opp~osition which prevented the marriage of Miss Elkins and thi
duke of the Abruzzi, and her visit hore will on that account be invested witU

WARS and rumors of war die
time in the world's, history,
when civiliz~ation might be
supposed to have repressed

from our bosoms.
Millions are given to promote the
cause of universal peace. Yet the na
tions of Europe compete with each
other for the privilege of bearing the
heaviest burden in the way' of modern
armaments. England trembles at the
thought of Germany; Germany, with
her rapidly expanding commerce,
leaps to the Dreadnought type of
naval construction and Increases her
expenditures to overcome England's
two-power lead. Austria lays down

But In the meantime the Panama
Canal will have been opened, and the
elliciency of the American navy al- i
most doubled. Up11 to now the largerI
portion of the fleet has been kept in
Atlantic waters, but with the canal
open It would be possible to effect a
change of position in case of need
without serious delay.
A writer signing himself "Navarch"
emphasizes, in an article on "The Dis
position of Our Fighting Fleet," in the
Columbian Mlagazine, the importance
of the new naval stations in the Pa
cifle. Hle speaks particularly of Pearl
Harbor at Hlawaii, where a naval base
Is now being established, and of the
dry dock Dewey at Olongapo, sixty
miles fromn Manila.

Do lois Said He Would Die
A Friend's Advice Saves Life
I wish, to speak of the wonderful cure
that I have received from your noted
Swamp-Root, the great kidney and blad
der cure. Last summer I was taken with
severe pains in my back and sides. I
could not breathe without difficulty and
was nearly wild with the desire to urinate.
Was compelled to do so every ten nin
utes with the passage of pure blood with
the urine. I tried all the different doe
tora from far and near, but they said it
was no use to doctor as I would die any
way. I was at the end of ray rope and
was so miserable with pain and the
thought that I must die that words cap
not tell how I felt. One day a friend told
me of the wonderful help she had received
from Dr. Kilmer's Swamp-Root. She gave
me one of your pamuphlets which I read
and determined to try Swamp-Root. After
taking half a bottle I felt better. Have
now taken ten bottles and am well as I
ever was, thanks to Swamp-Root. I wish
to tell all suffering people that have hid
ney, liver or bladder trouble, that Dr. Kil
nier's Swamp-Root is the best i6edicine on
the market.
All persons doubting this statement enn
write to me and I will answer them di
rectly, Yours very truly,

Burglar Befriended Him.
A burglar was arrested for robbing
a house up the state some t ine since,
and the next morning the victim rush
ed wildly into the magistrate's office.
As soon as lie could get his breath to
working again h3 told the ofliCial that
he had come to see about the pris

"Glad yout came down," was the af
fable response of the magistrato. "I
sutypoSe y*ou wan' to appear against
him."
"Well, I guess not!" exlailied the
victim with a glad smile. "I want to
kiss limin on the brow and give him
$10. Among other things that lie stole
from the house was a package of love
letters that I wrote ot my wife before
we were married."

an inflamed spot on our baby's hip
