NBW YORK, February 8. Evelyn
Nesbit Thaw again today was the cen
tral figure at lior husbuud's trial. She
was still on tho stand and her direct
examination was unfinished when the
usunl week-end adjournment until Mon
day morning was taken.
Picking up the threads of her life
story wjuiro she had dropped them the
evening before the girl wife of the
defondnnt, always, as she declared, tell
ing her story just as she had related It
to Harry Thaw, brought the narratjvc
down to her wedding in Pittsburg in
April, f00.", and thoir return to New
York following the honeymoon. Sho
declared she had heard' White call to
hor on the street once after this nnd
that on anothor occasion, when she
pnssojl him in a cab, she noticed his
ab turn nrouud and .follow her iu the
direction of the doctor's office, where
she was going to have her throat treat
ed. On Monday she may be called upon
to finish tho relation of the events
which it is claimed by tho defense
brought on the explosive impulse in the
diseased brain of the defendant.
Not So Dramatic as Thursday
Whilo today's testimony lacked tho
IKsreonal quality which made yeter
day's recital so dramatic, impelling, en
thralling and pathetic, it served to cast
away oine of" the doubts and inferences
which remained from the incomplete de
tails as to the full extent of the revola
lion she claims to have made to her bus
band.
Jerome, who had silently listened to
the young wife's statements, sent
thrill of excitement through the court
room by vigorously protesting against
this defamation of the dead.
"Is there no limit," he exclaimed,
"to the aspersions to be cast upon this
man? The court well knows I cannot
under the law controvert any statement
this witness might make against the
memory of Stanford White."
In his most bitterly sarcastic vein
lerome spoke of the "tattlo of the ten
derloin" and declared the court had the
right to limit such testimony, "until
competent evidence has bone adduced
here to show that this man is, or wai
of unsound mind. We don't know
whether tho defendant ever was jn
sane," he concluded. j
As to "Other Girls"
The question which called the vohem
eat protest from Jerome was addressed
to Mrs. Thaw by Dolmas nnd its pur
port was whother or not Thaw had told
lior about other girls who had mot a
"fato similar to your's at the hands of
White."
Justice Fit7gerald thought "the de
fense should lny a broader foundation
tp show insanity before 'proceeding
along the lines surrounded by Mr. ,Dcl
nias' question.
" We will .proceed to do this as soon
us possible," answered Delmas.
Mrs. Thaw declared that White dur
ing the year which followed her experi
ence in the room of tho mirrored walls,
lopeatcdly sought to have her visit him
alone.
"I told Harry." she said, "that Mr.
White beggedlnc, pleaded and cried and
scolded and done everything he could
to make me comn to sec him alone. 1
refused and he told me I was cruel and
that I was coffl as a fish and not a hu
man being. T told White 1' did not care
to trust him.
Thaw Thought Hor Untrue
"After my return from Europe and
during tho months I would not see
Thaw because of tho dreadful things
Whito nnd his friends had told me
about him," she declared that Thaw
accused her of improper relations with
the architect, "I toltljiim it was n lie
and I had not," sho testified with an
emphatic show of feeling.
The defense had Mrs. Thaw toll .of
her acquaintance with Jack Barrymore,
the actor. Mr. Darrymore was in the
courtroom one day during tho early part
of the trial ut tho instance of Jerome.
Sho said she first mot Uarrymoro nt
a party given by White tno year roi.
lowing nor uuihiiuihiuu i" uium
tect. V
"I though him very nice," sh6 said
today. . ' , ,
"One day at White's studio ho said:
Kolyn, will you marry met' I .said:
'I don't know,' He asked me a second
time and again I said: 'I don't know,'
and everybody laughed.
Foolish to Marry Barrymore
"Mr. Whito told tinc I. would be very
foolish to marry Barrymore and my
mother said so too and we all quarreled.!
The upshot at the whole thing was that
White said I ought to be sent to school
nnd I was sont to New Jersey."
Dolinas asked hor if sho had seen
Whito after hpr return ..to Now' York
from tho honeymoon.
" passed him one day in Fifth nve
nue. I was in a cab arid he saw me,
and I heard him say, 'Evelyn,' as if to
call someone.
"I went back to the hotel and told
Harry, and he snld 'tho dirty black
guard, ho had no right io speak to you.'
"The next time I saw him T was
driving to the doctor's ollico to have
my throat tieated. Whttp was also in
u cub. He jvist stared tins timo and
strokod his mustache. As I alighted
nt the doctor's door I saw "White com
ing. I rang tho boll and then got so
nervous nnd flustrated that I told the
maid I would come back again nnd I
rnn down tho steps, got into tho cab
and drove to tho hotel, ivlicro I told
Harry what had happened. Ho got
very excited and bit his nails."
These wero tho only two times, Mrs.
Thaw said, , that sho told her husband
that Whito had approached or attempt
ed to speak to her.
Other Lottors Read
Another great crowd was in the
courtroom today, every available spaco
being occupied, but the dramatic thrills
of the day boforo wero not there. The
day began with n continuance of tho
rending of letters from Thaw to Mr.
Longfellow written after Evelyn Nes
bit 's rovelatlons to her suitor in Parjs.
There wero others which had been sent
to the attorney to deliver to Miss Nes
bit, who at that timo would not sec
him.
Mrs. Thaw followed with the relation
of hor oxperionce with White and At
torney Abraham Hummel coucorniug
tho alleged affidavit which sho made
charging Thaw with having tuken her
from her mothor against her will and
with gross cruelty. Mrs. Thaw told
how she had been induced to answer
some quostiou about herself and Thaw
and had been told stories about his
'cruelties to girls."
To Protect Hor from Thaw
White had told her, she declared,
rlmt it was necessary to take drastic
measures to protect her tioni such a per
son and that Thaw must bo kept out of
New York. She denied signing any
papers in Huinmol's offic1? but said that
sho rememborcd having fjgnod somo for
White in his onlce, Uie contents of
which sho did not know.
When sho got frightened about tho
papers and demanded to sec them she
said White took hor to Hummol's olllce
and there they burned a paper on which
she said her name was ut the bottom.
Sho was not allowed to sco what the
paper contained whou it was destroyed.
Mrs. Thaw's testimony was mado
amusing at times by interjections of the
unities which Thaw hadapplicd touthe
lawyer and White's agitated question
ing as to what she hadjftpjd Ifumtucl
ibout him. Sho declarcdasho had told
the lawyer nothing.
" 'Well,' White said to me, 'there is
something wroug somewhere. Hummel
has just squeezed a thousand dollars
out of me and the Lord only knows how
won ho will squeeze anothor.' I then
remembered having told Mr. Hummel
wlien he threatened thiugs about Thaw
that ho had better be caroful, for Thaw-
know a lot of teiriblc thhigs about
White."
Wills of Thaw aud Wife
The defense cuduavorcd to put in evi
lenco today the wills of Harry Thaw
mil .Evelyn Thaw which were executed
tho night of their wedding. There were
so many interlineations, additions and
erasures that Justice Fitzgerald held
the documents not admissable until the
hanges wero proved.
Delmas said he would endeavor to
prove this as the wills and interlinea
tions and a codicil by Thaw- had to do
with the proof fending to show the in
sanity of the defendant. Jt came out
that the name of Stanford Whito ap
peared in Thaw's testament.
Mrs. Thaw will go on with Jicr direct
examination Monday morning. Just
what will be the naturo of Jerome's
cross examination is mere conjecture.
It is said ho may try to attack her
credibility and probably as to her abil
ity to remember other things as well as
sho has the stories she has declared she
told Harrv Thaw from time to time.

Grazing Subject of Coming
Resolution Charter for the
New Alaska Railroad,
By Associated Pret.8.
WASHINGTON February 8. A new
high record in tho way of passage of
private pension bills was made by the
house today, when 725 bills wero passed
iu an hour and a half. The naval ap
propriation bill carrying over $95,000,
000 millions, was taken up. Speeches
wore made by Mr. Lamar of Florida on
the rnilroad rate bill; Mr. Higgius of
Connecticut, favoring the creation of
the White Mountain and Appalachian
forest reserves; by Mondcll of Wyom
ing, on the "Limitations of Federal
Authority," and the withdrawal of coal
lands from entry.
Indian Bill Passes
WASHINGTON, February 8. The
senate today passed the Indian apropri
atiou bill. Senator "Frazicr made an
address on the subject of state
rights, after which the army apropria
tion bill, carrying a total of $81,500,
000, was taken up. The army measure
was partly read for the approval of the
committee on amendments, and adjonrn
ment was taken when it became appar
ent that considerable debate was to be
occasioned by an amendment to permit
the government to receive reduced rates
from the railroads for tho transporta
tion of troops and supplies for the army
and to allow army officers and their
families to accept free transportation.
The adoption of this amendment
would be-a modification of the railroad
rate bill. Senator Warren, in charge of
the bill, gave notice that he would press
its consideration tomorrow. Senator
Nelson said ho would move tomorrow
for the consideration of the bill grant
ing the government the right of appeal
in criminal cases.

but revenuo therefrom being taxed
when the total income of tho holder ex
ceeds the minimum laid down.
French savings are largely invested
in rents.
The burdens placed unon foreiirn se
curities, both private and governmental,
constituted a particularly heavy blow
to Russian securities, of which it is
estimated from eight to ten millions
are held in France. This new income
tax measure is one of the radical re
forms to which the Clemenccau minis
try committed itself upon assuming of
fice. Whilo it is received with un
bounded joy-bv, tho socialists as a pro
per shifting of the burden of taxation
to the shiulders of tho idle rich, it is
sure to encounter intenso opposition
from tho more moderate Republicans,
as well as from tho conservative parties.
