Kxpenar of Trial,
When a suit of the Gotham Company
against Mrs. Kvelyn Nesblt Thaw to re
cover $2,041 came before City Cotii'i
Justice Green yesterday for its second 1
trial Mrs. Thaw's attorney, John Rellly,
told the court that Mrs. Thaw was un
able to stand the expense of the tilsl
and that slie couldn't even afford to take
a taxlcnb to court to find out what 1
became of the case. '
Asked If Mrs. Thaw was willing to
have Judgment given to the plaintiff by
default Mr. Rellly said:
"That Is quite correct. My client finds
herself In such reduced circumstances
that she Is unable tn bear the burden
of a second trial."
The Clorham Company then got Judg
ment and as soon as It Is entered and
the execution Is returned unsatisfied
the company will examine Mrs. Thaw to
And out whether she has any property.
Her attorney said the examination will
show that she has nothing.

was given out that they did nut want
to face a syuail of phot ogiuphels who
reina ueij for hours In the corridors
outside when word was passed about
tha' Brandt was -edeted inside mid
was talking with the Governor
When Brandt and the watdeii came
out they did not go to a hotel as e.
petted, but htltried Instead to a private
house In a rimote port of the rjtj, walk
'ng all the wa.v There thev remained
fur the night. .
Warden Kaiser ueated Brandt j.
though he alreadv wei free Brandt
wore a gtay suit, a slout h hat nnd
looked nattv tin the way down to Al
ba n In the train from Piattsb.itg he
said he felt ns though "Gov. Sulet
would do the light thing "
111" persona, belongings ha.c been
em from the prison to Albanv and this
makes ii appeal that he will be par
doiiej. The train on which Btandt hiiiI War

tion on the outskirts of Albany so the)
Xuld avoid a crowd
A Jailer was btought along by War
den Kaiser The three went tliiouh
ihe streets unknown to an) one and en
teied a hotel, where thev had a meal
Then the warden and liiandt slipped
Into the hack room of the i:ecutlve
Chatnliei. which hitherto has not been
used Ii) the Governor for conferences
The utmost secrecy was preset ved.
P.uutlne matters went along us usual in
the chamber and no intimation of
Blanch's presence could be got from the
emplo.vees At 7 o'clock Gov Sul-.er
went out. his presence lielng required at
the "People's House' where he was giv
ing a dinner for the Court of Appeals
and Judiciarv
He refused to u a wotd about the
Biandt case His answer i questions
as to whether or not Brandt was In
the chamber was that everything in the
case would be made known 'at 2 3u
ociocK io-morrovv afternoon" Then
Chester C Piatt, the Governor's private
secretary, came out. He had nothing to
say. After this all the lights were,
turned out and Mr. Potter, with his.
assistant and a stenographer, came out
as though leaving for the night.
In an hour Mr. Potter returned, how
ever, and found the watcheis still on
their Jobs. Several times ufter fils
one of the clerks poked his head out of
the door to see If any one was wall- 1
Ing and nrandt and his keeper finally
came out only when told that the
photographers had left the Capitol
There was much talk to-night 1 s to
whether or not Oov Sulzer's action In i
bringing Brandt to Albany Is legal lti
ha been supposed by Attorney-General
Carmody and other lawyers that the
onl.v way tn get a man from prison
is to pardon him or get a writ
of habeas corpus, but the Governor, an
nounced that he would brush aside ad
technicalities and have the man at the
hearing.
Lat tn-nlght Oov Sulzer admitted
he had a long talk with Brandt He
would not discuss the details. ,
HALF THE BABIES CALAMITIES.
Prof ftVolt .Searing In Haer
ftalcld TalL.
Pi of Stotl Nearlng of the I'mverslty
of Pennsylvania, speaking on the sub
ject of eugenics last night In the Meet
ing Houne, Sixty-fourth street and Cen
ttal Park West, under the auspices of
the Federation for Child Study, told his
audience that If 1,000 Harvard or Vale
graduates were segregated from the rest '
of civilization they would at the end of 1
tile sixth generation have diminished
to fifty persons.
Prof Nearlng said that as long a the
unfit children of society are helped on
to life this age rannot expect to attain
an) thing lll.e perfection. Ho quoted
statistics regarding Chlne.ne society,
where no medical aid nas been given to
keep weak chlldien alive, which showed
that the average Chinaman Is far better
able lo undergo physical hardship than
the average Occidental.
"The great crime of Ihe. age." e.
claimed Prof, Nearlng, "Is the fact that
no attempt Is being made to Increase the
efficiency of the race. To show, for ex
ample, how rare suicide Is on the In- ,
crease, In 1S00 a family of eight chit-1
drcn was a common thing, while to-day
one of four Is a matter for wonderment. !
The lamentable part of It Is that on
Fifth avenue children are a scarcity,
while In the tenements they are quite 1
common.
"No 'American whose wages amount .
tn $600 or less should have children.
That nmount Is not sufficient to main
tain and educate them. And us half
nur families have no more frage. than
thl" half of our rhlldren may be enn
vldered calamities."

L'nlike Mr Baker, however, Mr. Srhlff
was in favor of the fullest publicity In

He also would prohibit the offlcet s of
national Iwnks from participating In
underwriting syndicates and the officers
