Ilffi' BLOCKS THE
i WBf INQUIRY
Refuses to Testify and Sul
zer's Committee Is Power
less to Punish Him.
FISHKIL-L-ON-HTJDSON, X. Y., Feb.
C Harry K. Thaw refused today lo tes
tify before Governor Sulzer's committee
of Inquiry which Is Invesllsraxln;- an al
leged conspiracy to obtain Thaw's re
lease from the aiatteawan hospital. Thaw
declared that he would answer questions
only if allowed to testify "In the samo
place ant' under the same circumstances
as other witnesses," and "without pro
tense of Insanity." lie snld ho had taken
this position "on advice,'' but refused to
gay who had advised him.
i The commission came here from A.1
Tmny today after hearing John Nicholson
iAnhut; a New York lawyer, testify that
Jjo had received a $25,000 feo from an
ggent of Thaw to obtain his release.
Anliut also testified concerning Ids ro
Jatlons with Dr. John V7. Russell, su
perintendent of tho Matteawan hospital,
denying the Iatter's accusation that he
jiad offered the doctor a 520,000 brlbo to
Btd lu securing Thaw's freedom, and
making the counter charge that Dr. Rus
tcll had said "he wouldn't do anything
for Thaw unless bo got monoy for It."
tjolin T. Norton, counsel for the com
mittee, had prepared a series of ques
tions for Thaw to answer which ho
hoped would clear up some of the con
tradictory evidence. Thaw's refusal to
answer thwarted this hope and the com
mittee returned to Albany" tonight un
certain 3S to what step should be taken
Confessing: tnat it was powerless to
punish Thaw for "contumacious conduct,"
in view of tho fact that the witness
nes already incarcerated, the committee
decided to adjourn tho hearing.

perience of others and take Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound? It is an indisputable fact that this grand old
remedy has helped thousands of women to pass through

ble Compound and derived great benefit from its rise. It carried ma
safely through, the Change of Life when I was in bad health. I had
that all gone feeling most of tho time, and headache constantly, I was
very nervous and the hot flashes were very bad. I had tried other
remedies and doctors, but did not improve until I began taking Lydia
