Feeling at Sacramento More
Hopeful Two Drown in
By Associated Press.
SAOKAMKNTO, Cal., March 2S
While there is no apparent fhiprrf'Fcment
in the flood situation in the island dis
trict south of this city today, the be
lief prevails that" any reclamation dis
trict leveos that withstood the force of
the Hood wave Friday have a good
chance to pull through. That the water
will go highor tomorrow morning and
still higher Monday seems to be the
lieliof of the weather obitervor in this
city, but it will be duo to a slight rising
of the tide. This is not expected to be
very trying on the levees.
It is thought that the heavy rain oi
this morning and which was general all
over the valley, will do little moro than
pour water into the already Hooded dis
tricts to the north and that it will not
be appreciably felt in the lower island
district. Tho feeling today is hopeful.
Karly this morning wor41 was re
ceived from Fair Oaks that George Das
sonville and Prod Fiane drowned while
trying to take a small boat with the
government mail across the river and
that Christ Anderson nearly lost his
life iu attempting to rescue them.
Sacramento sits dry inside of its
stiong levees and there appears to be
no danger here.
Two relief boats with provisions and
bedding and barges loft this city early
this morning. Those persons who have
been driven to the levees will be
(nought to this city or, if they desire,
food, clothing and bedding will be dis
tributed among them.

Is'KW YOUK, March 23. AttornevsJ
for Thnw todnj' filed answer to tho sug
gestion made by Jerome thnt Thaw is
mentally incapablo of understanding
the proceeding against him and is a
subject for a commission in lunacy,
rather than for a jury. Supplementing
their own unanimous opinion that Thaw
does understand the nature of tho pro
ceedings against him and daily advises
intelligently with his counsel, the attor
neys have tiled atlidavits from tho med
ical experts employed by the defense
and a further utlldavit by Mrs. William
Thaw, mother of tho defendant. Mrs.
Thaw, however, does not address herself
to the question immediately at hand.
She takes advantage of the opportunity
to state that in the direct line of de
scent for generations there has been
no taint of insanity or epilepsy in the
prisoner's family. She resents the'
"malicious misrepresentation and gross
exaggeration on this subject. "
Affidavit of Delmas
Tho principal ailidavit made in be
half of Thaw is signed by Delmas. Del
mas attaches to his porsonnl statement a
score or more letters and notes he has
received from Thaw during the trial.
These Mr. Delmas declares cleat ly indi
cate his grasp of tho proceedings. The
atlidavits which Thaw's -counsel hope
will block Jerome's move for a lunacy
commission were filed with the clerk
of the supreme court and this afternoon
turned over to Justice Fitzgerald, who
will announce his decision probably on
Wednesday morning, when the Thaw
jury has been ordered to report again.

day of "Thaw's defense was decidedly
disastrous to his ease. Mr. Delmas de
clared thnt Thaw wrote him as fol
Thaw's Noto to Counsel
"Dear Mr. JJelmas: On the sixth of
this month, at the request of my then
senior counsel, with other counsel con
curring, and upon my own motion, I
appointed you as my chief counsel, to
conduct and manage the present trial
before Justice Fitzgerald in accordance
with your own views, giving you full
authority in the matter. T wish today
to reiterate and confirm everything that
was dono iu these premises and to tell
you that no one but you has any right
or authority to make an agreement or
stipulation in any manner relating to
fhe conduct of the trial or to takv any
unauthorized steps therein. Very sin
cnely yours, J I. J. Thaw."
With reference to the proposed testi
mony of tho artist, Carrol Beckwith,
Thaw wrote to Delmas:
"I insist that my counsel ask Mr.
Beckwith to testify as regards wfiat he
told me iu tho fall of 1003, iu 1904,
lilO.1 and 1000 concerning Mrs. II. J.
Thaw's character and her goodness iu
the year 1001, and the change that oc
curred in the fall of 1001 after meeting
Dnder date of Fcbrunry 0, Thaw
wrote Delmas as follows:
Wanted to Sco Delmas' Notes
"J-t'ot as principal, but as husband,
must read your notes of my wife's tes
timony, as shall permit nothing but
tho truth and wish to prevent any un
intentional misrepresentation. Today a
witness not tho stngo doorkeeper, who
J was pleased to hear stand straight and
safe on facts perjured himself in a
very natural manner. This grieves me,
and forces mo to insist on my right as
a husband, if not thnt of deferenco to
my wishes as principal."
Another noto of the samo date said:
"Mr. Comstock comes after my wife,
I presume. Will sho testify Friday or
Mondaj'l My mother testifies tomor
row', I suppose, and some othors, possi
bly Mr. Cattlin or other witnesses of
White's two revolvers (tho last the un
usual ono) and his threats and his ring.
Ho always told hor, 'you know nothing
at all yet.' That removes tho dangor
of 'contagion' or tho ring or other mat
ters. I hope you can now answer my
early note. This requires none."
Hi ono of the letters to Mr. Delmas
Thaw enclosed five pages of questions
which ho declared Anthony CQiustock
might answer as to Thaw's work -with
him. Mrs. AVilliam Thaw's affidavit is
confined wholly to family histor3'.

Ryan Says They Should Be
Taken Out of Waif Street
No Coin for Speculation
By Associated Press.
WASHINGTON, March 23. Thomas
F. Ryan of New York was in Washing
ton today, en route to his country home
in Virginia. Speaking of the present
railroad problem, Ryau said:
"The railroads are really owned by
the ieopIe and not by the Wall street
brokers. They should bo taken out of
Wall street and stock quotation tickers
should be taken out of railroad offices.
Pinctical railroad men who are , charged
with the responsibility of operating the
railroads should be in absolute control.
"They should welcome ..pvery oppor
tunity to confer wifh the president, aid
ing him in his efforts to reach a solu
tion that wjll be fair and just to the
country and to the coriwrntions in a
sure and strict obedience to the law.
One of the bad features of tho present
financial situation is that every money
center iu the world is finding uso for
its capital iu the promotion of home
industries, and is using every effort to
prevent money from going into specula
tions. While t think we have enough
money to take care of our legitimate
business, T don't believe with all we
can draw from European centers there
is enough to carry on active stock spec
ulation in Wall street. I think it is
the duty of money lenders to frown
upon any undue speculative movement
iu any direction."

The tenth indictment was returned
against Glass, but withheld at tho last
owing to its defective form.

Glass has been in Nevada for some
time and is stormbound on a train be

home. He will be arrested immediately
upon his arrival by Sheriff O'Neill.
Glass is now a member of the advisory
board of the Pacific States Telephone
Detective Burns today received word
from his agents that Detwiler had been
located in Cairo, Egypt. Orders for his
arrest have not yet been cabled, but if
necessary ho will be apprehended and

Judge Coffey fixed bail at 90,000 for
Glass and $130,000 for Detwiler. Det
wiler represented the Home Telephone
company and is alleged to have given
Ruef $02,000, which the indictments

Moro Schmitz Denials
Mayor Schmitz in a statement to the
Associated I'ress indignantly denied
that he had through an intermediary
offered to confess on the condition that
he would not be prosecuted and would
be permitted to remain y office. Tho
mayor declared that he had nothing to
confess and denounced the report as
absolutely false. Neither Heney nor
Burns would discuss the reported offer
of the mayor.
Both Jleney and Lnngdon confirmed
the story sent out by tho Associated

be made at present to remove the mayor
or board of supervisors and thoy de

local paper that a wholesale removal of
city officials is being planned, that tho

a step and that a citizons' reconstruc

Miss Nellie Smith, tho stenographer
for the attorneys wlio represented the

has for days been endeavoring to get
information which it is claimed would
be the connecting link between Ruef
and the Home officials in the matter of
the $02,000 which it is charged was
paid to tho former for tho supervisors.

The cause of the wreck has not yet
been determined, but it is stated that
the engineer of the Overland had been
given orders to stop at a tower two
