THE YOUNG WIFE AGAIN AIDED
HER HUSBAND'S CAUSE.
Xew York, Feb., 23. Notwithstand
ing the fact that District Attorney
Jerome endeavored in every mannor
possible to tangle Evelyn Xesbit
Thaw In his cross-examination today
the people's, attorney tonight was
forced to admit that he had been un
able to strengthen the states case
gainst Harry Thaw. Much stress
was given the fact that "The Little
"Woman" had denied knowledge of the
text of the affidavit which she signed
In the office of Lawyer Hummel, be
fore her marriage to Thaw and the
district attorney left the impression
that he had at last secured an ad
mission which would allow him to in
troduce evidence which would make
it possible to cause a question as to
the truthfulness of the woman who
has for days been under fire, which
she has been fighting to save the life
of the man who has protected her.
Evelyn Appeared Rested.
The three days rest seemed ta have
had a wonderful effect on Evelyn.
She "came into court looking brighter
and more confident than she has ap
peared at any time since the district
attorney has been firing questions at
her, which have uncovered every
moment of lier life since she became
an artist'? model up to the night
when her husband shot the man who
she. says caused her ruin. -
Today as In the past District Attor
ney Jerome, failed to follow a fixed
line of examination but by jumping
from one subject to another seemed
to be endeavoring' to tangle tho wit
ness by a series of questions entirely
different -in thelrtnaraeter and deal
ing with many Incidents of the young
wife's life which is under consider
ation. .....
.When the states attorney would be
come severe in his questioning, the
answers given came quick and sharp
ly spoken. When he became milder,
the responses were given in a subdu
ed tone and when ho drawled his
questions Evelyn would drawl her re
plies. From the appearance of the
face of at least one of the jurors it
became evident that Jerome had not
strengthened his case materially. ,
" It is stated tonight that several
witnesses will be placed on the stand
during tomorrows sessions who will
testify that Mrs. Harry Thaw knew
the contents of the affidavit, which,
she has denied.
As a matter of fact the prosecutor
enabled Mrs. Thaw to explain a num
ber of things which appeared very
much against her and the defendant
last week. With regard to Stanford
"White's letter or credit, which she
liad in Europe, she declared she had
not been Informed of the letter until
at sea.
Mother Got the Money.
She denied ever having used ' a
penny of it herself, but said her
mother had got it all, Thaw turning
!t over to her. Thaw declared the
money was "poison."
With regard to the cabling to Stan
ford White from London. Mrs. Thaw
said it had to do with her mother and
an attache of the American embassy
In the English capital. "This at
tache," she said, "had sneaked up to
her mother's bed-room and insulted
her." Mrs. Thaw denied that the
cablegrams had anything to do with
her going to Europe with Thaw.
Jerome began by asking: "How
long after the night you were drugged
was it that an account was opened
for you at the New Amsterdam bank?"
"I cannot tell."
Jerome took another tact. '
"When did you meet Francis Bel
mont?" "When I was in Florodora."
"Was that before you met White?"
"I think so."
Jerome while putting these ques
tions was reading from a statement
made to him by Evelyn's mother. A
letter from White to his secretary, in
which the secretary was notified to de
posit money in the Merchantile Trust
Company for Evelyn was then intro
duced In evidence.
Mazie Follette Aids.
Mazie Follette. former chorus girl

fln ally of Jerome, arrived at the crim
inal courts building this morning and
was taken to Jerome's office. She will
Five Jerome points for his cross-examination
of Evelyn this afternoon.
Evelyn testified that her mother got !
all the money on White's letter of
credit which she had when abroad in
J9-.1 with Thaw. Thaw said it was
poison. She said she met Thaw at a
dinner. , Thaw sent her $50 once with
a box of flowers but she returned the
money.
At the afternoon session Evelyn ad
mitted that when she and Thaw re
turned to America from Paris he gave
her $1,000. Referrra gto Jack Barry

nil night with him; also that her

Mrs. Ray Smith of 923 North Elev

evening as the result of an accident
In which the clothes were burned
from the upper portion of her body
and she only escaped death by the
prompt assistance of her husband,
who was fortunately near enough to
come to her aid. . In lighting a kero
sene lamp, Mrs. Smith somehow
jerked the lighted match back into
her sleeve causing an immediate con
flagration of her dress which was on
ly extinguished by her husband after
she had suffered painful injuries.
Her right breast, right arm, left side,
neck and left arm were severely burn

BASEBALL BILL IS
i
PASSED BY HOUSE
Amid Enthusiasm Speaker
Branch Announces Vote on
the Measure.
ASSEMBLY IN AN UPROAR
THOSE ON THE FLOOR SHOUT
FOR VERIFICATION OF THE
COUNT WHILE ABSENT MEM
BERS ARE HUSTLED IN.
Indianapolis, Ind., Feb. 25. Mem
bers of the house of representatives
late this afternoon, Went on record as
favoring Sunday professional baseball
games, when by a vote of, 52 to 26, a
bill .which - will allow charging of ad
mission to witness games played on
Sunday by professional-ami amateurs,
was passed. -
The fight for the bill was one of the
most enthusiastic of the present leg
islature and for a time, just previous
to the announcement of the vote, the
house was in complete disorder. In
fact it was only when Speaker
Branch called for the chief doorkeep
er to clear the floor that there was any
semblance of quiet.
As the roll call on the bill progressed
It became evident that unless there
was some tall hustling on the part of
the friends of the measure, that it
would fail of passage Sot want of a
constitutional majority.
Speaker Branch was Kind.
Speaker Branch was kind to the
baseball enthusiasts and even after
the roil had been verified he suggest
ed that the absentees be called, or
sent for. This was done before the
vote was announced and by repeated
calls for verification of tho roll
enough delay was given for a search
to be made for a vote which would as
sure passage of the bill. After a con
siderable time Representative McCul
lough of Madison county was found
and yanked out of a committee meet
ing, rushed onto the floor of the house
just in time to stand up and request
to be registered as voting in favor of
the bill. His action was greeted with
much applause on the part of members
of the house and an instant later when
Speaker Branch announced that the
vote stood 52 to 36, there was a repe
titlon of enthusiasm.

SPIRITED CONTEST IS ON
YOUNG MEN'S COMMITTEE OF
WHICH HOWARD DILL IS CAP
TAIN, LEADS IN THE AMOUNT
OF MONEYTURNED IN.
A show of much spirit and determi
nation was evinced at the meeting of
the young men's committee of the Y,
M. C. A. project in the Commercial
club rooms last evening. The reports
for the week were very good and as
much interest was shown as at the
beginning of 'the fight. Some of the
leaders at the beginning of the strug
gle have dropped out, but others have
taken their places to prosecute the bat
tie with as much strenuosity as ever.
The committees were hard at work
during the past week and the con
tention between them for superiority
will probably be the means of increas
ing the fund more rapidly than at any
time during the entire campaign.
The revision that has been made on
the committees has greatly strength
ened them and the young men are be
ginning to canvass in squads with
good ' results.
Some statistics concerning the t work
of the young men's squads which have
been compiled follow, giving the num
ber of the- squad, the leader, the
amount raised for , the week and the
total amount raised.

Big Gift in Prospect.
It is understood on good authority
that a contribution of large size, per
haps' $10,000 or $15,000, is in pros
pect for the Y. M. C. A fund, but the
prospective donor thinks a greater
number of Richmond people should
do something for the cause. About
800 have so far subscribed, and it is
argued that not fewer than 1,200 and
probably many more, hould do
something.
Secretary Brown stated yesterday
that he received word from State Sec
retary Stacy that the lecture he will
deliver in this city as the opening ad
dress to the Sunday School Institute
that begins here on the night of Mon
day, March 11th, will be on the
educational features of the Y. M. C.
A. over the entire world. Mr. Stacy
will give a series of stereopticon views
that he has secured from every sec
tion of the country. This lecture will
be given as the opening number of
the institute, which will be given at
the First M. E. church.
For the benefit of the canvassers
that desire to secure cards, it has
been arranged to have the headquar
ters open throughout the day. With
this arrangement the quarters will be
open at all hours to the public and
Mr. Umwn will be afforded an oppor
tunity to directly superintend the
work of the canvassers in the city.
HAD TO GET PRESCRIPTION
Minister Whose Wife Was Very III
Couldn't Get Alcohol of
Druggist.
Anderson. Ind., Feb., 25. Very
much concerned over the condition of
his wife, who has been ill since last
Sunday, the Rev. T. W. Grafton, pas
tor of the Central Christian church
of this city, forgot the requirements
of the "blind tiger" law, and was re
fused the right to buy a pint of al
cohol when he called at the drug
store of J. H. Crouse today, for med
ical purposes for his wife. The min
ister complained that he must have
the alcohol as quickly as possible,
but the druggist refused to sell eith
er the - alcohol or whisky until the
minister could get a physician's pre
scription. GRANT WOMAN'S SUFFRAGE
House Passed the Furnas Bill by Vote

Partly Successful.
Indianapolis, Ind., Feb. 25. It may
have been because Helen Gougher,
the champion of woman's suffrage, was
present, or it may have been because
the lower legislative body has had a
change of heart, but whatever the
cause. Representative Furnas bill
which provides that women shall have
the right of suffrage in all city and
town elections, was passed by a vote of
16 in il and will be engrossed.
It Is Thought That He Wants
to Bury Hatchet with His
Brother-in-Law.
SHOOTING SUNDAY NIGHT
ROBT. SEINE SHOT ORA WARE
WHILE HE SAT AT THE HOME
OF SEINE'S FATHER NO ONE
SERIOUSLY HURT.
Ora Ware, a colored man, who was
shot by Robert Seine ,also colored,
Sunday evening, at the home of Sidney
Seine, called at police ... headquarters
yesterday afternoon for the purpose of
seeing his assailant. Ware had both
hands bandaged, but otherwise did not
appear to be any worse for his experi
ence with the business end of a shot
gun, held in the hands of . an enraged
man." - Ware would give no reason
why he wished to see Seine, and in the
absence of Superintendent Bailey, the
man was not given permission to vis
it the jail. It is thought that Ware
wishes to "bury the hatchet" with his
brother-in-law, and if , he refuses to
prosecute him such an action would
create but little surprise.
The' shooting was a result of
bad blood that had existed
for some time between Seine, and his
brother-in-law, Ora Ware. Seine shot
the latter Sunday evening with a sin
gle barrel shotgun, through a window,
as Ware sat in the kitchen of the
home of his father-in-law, Sidney
Seine, who resides at 713 South Thir
teenth street. Ware received a greater
part of the charge In his hands. Fly
ing glass from the broken window
and the chimney of a lamp, which was
extinguished by the discharge of the
gun, cut Seine's baby daughter In the
back of ; the head and also cut the
face and head of Ware's young daugh
ter. SeinS after the shooting return
ed tho gun to the neighbor he borrow
ed it-of, v then-we at to police .head
quarters and gave himself up. He Will
be arraigned in police court this
morning, charged with assault and
battery. A more serious charge was
not placed against Seine owing to
extenuating circumstances.
Ware is a police character, and it
is alleged, has refused to support his
wife and child. Mrs. Ware and her
baby have been living at her father's
home for some time past, and it Is
stated, Ware had frequently been or
dered to stay away from the house.
Sunday evening Ware called, and
while sitting in the kitchen with sev
eral members of his wife's familv he
called Mrs. Robert Seine a vile name.
Seine left the house, and going to the
home of a neighbor, borrowed a shot
gun, then returned to avenge himself
on his brother-in-law. Seine walked
nto the back yard of the house, and
seeing Ware seated in a chair, reclin
ing against a wall, be shot at him
through the window. The charge from
the gun tore through Ware's hands,
extinguished a lamp on the kitchen ta
ble and RWPDt. most of the table ware
to the floor. The room was thrown
into instant darkness and a scene of
wild confusion ensued. Whan the ex
citement subsided Ware discovered
that he had been shot and he rushed
across the street to a neighbor's
house, where he telephoned for Dr.
Norrell and then had his bands ban
daged. The two injured children were
attended by Dr. Bramkamp. When
Seine arrived at police headquarters
he stated that he had shot Ware and
asked to be locked up. To the neigh
bor who loaned him the gun he stated
that he wanted it "to shoot a dog."
Friends of the Seine family state that
the primary .motive for Seine's deed
was the alleged bad treatment of
Ware toward his wife, a sister to
whom Seine was jrveatlv attached.
Ware was arrested about a year
ago for associating with Etta McCon-
louge. The police state that he is a
bad character. Seine is a well known
young colored man of excellent repu
tation. Last summer he played third
base for the local colored team, the
Giants, and was one of the best play
ers of the club. Ware is painfully but
not seriously injured. The condition
of the two children is not serious.
To Close Public Dances.
As a result of the rough house at
the given Saturday night by the
Knights of the Golden Eagle the po
lice have been instructed by Chief
Bailey to close all public dances sim
ilar to the kind conducted by the
Knights of the Golden Eagle. The
chief states that these kind of dances
nearly always end in a fight.

CLERKS BEING "SWEATED"
THEY ARE PUT THROUGH A
GRUELING EXAMINATION, BUT
ALL ASSERT THEIR INNO
CENCE. Chicago, Feb., 25. One o'.the lar
gest if not the largest thefts from
the United States treasury has been
unearthed in Chicago. Somewhere
between $175,000 to $200,000, it was
learned today, completely disappeared
from the local subtreasury last week.
The authorities here and in Washing
ton have been working night and day
on the robbery since it was discover
ed. Chief Wilkie, of the United States
secret service, . has taken personal
charge of the investigation. x
Secretary Shaw, of the treasury de
partment, was told of the theft when
In Chicago last week, alid was in con
ference with Subtreasurer William
Boldenweck and secret service offi
cials. The money was taken either a week
ago Saturday, the next day or last
Monday. The chances are it was ab
stracted on Monday. The loss was
discovered on Tuesday. The stolen
money was in bills of the denomina
tion of $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000. Just
who discovered the loss the subtreas
ury officials will not admit. Neither
will they tell from what department
the money was taken nor how the
loss was discovered.
Captain Porter was very reluctant
to say anything in regard to the rob
bery. "At present I can not say any
thing more of the affair than that it
was reported to me last Wednesday,"
he said. "It would not be proper fot
me to go into details of the case or
what we are doing in the way of in
vestigation." The ledger men involved strenu
ously denied any error and an inves
tigation showed there was no possible
clerical mistake to account for the
disappearance of the csh.
Every man who could have had
anything to do with the case was call
into Treasurer Bolden week's office
and put through an exhaustive exam
ination and a still more rigid cross
examination. Captain Porter, of the
secret service, assisted in the exam
ination. All denied any knowledge
of the theft and protested their in
nocence. Day by day, however, the
sweating process has been kept up.
Saturday a faint clew pointed in the
direction of a certain clerk and, that
followed up, directed suspicion to an
other employe, a close associate of
the first man.
These men were summoned into
the inquisition chamber and separate
ly subjected to a' grueling examina
tion. One passed through the ordeal
in a calm and self-possessed manner,
but the other showed signs of break
ing down. Just what he admitted the
secret service men refuse to disclose.
Anyway, the admissions he made
started the investigation into renew
ed activity. Half a dozen operatives
started out and results are expected
in the next twenty-four or forty-eight
hours.
William Boldenweck was appointed
subtreasurer on June 28 last. He suc
ceeded William P. Williams. .
Sub-treasurer Boldenweck declared
that it had been definitely determined
just where the shortage occurred, but
he declined to say where It had been
traced. He declared himself positive.
however, that the money had never
reached the vaults. He said that the
only reason for believing that the
stolen money had been in bills of
large denomination was that It would
have been impossible for anybody to
have taken $173,000 from the olfce
in small bills and escaped detection.
He declared that it would have made
too bulky a package. A package of
$173,000 in $1,000 bills could have
been carried about the person easily
without exciting suspicion.

There was a well attended meeting
of the Sons of Veterans at the G. A.
R. hall last evening, when further ar
rangements were made for participa
tion in Memorial day exercises.
The organization extended an invi
tation to Judge Joseph G. Leffler, of
Muncie to be one of the principal
speakers on that occasion. Judge
Leffler is one of the most eloquent
speakers in the state, and it is pecul
iarly, fitting that he should be called
upon for an address by the Sous of
Veterans, as he is a member of that
organization, and was present when
the Indiana division was formed in
this city 22 years ago.
The order has made arrangements
for a roll call meeting on March 11.

REPORT CURRENT THAT A
LARGE AMOUNT OF SEQUES

PLACED ON TAX DUPLICATE.
For placing upon the tax list many
thousands of dollars worth of prop
erty that had escaped the eye of the
vigilant assessor W." E. Charters, tax
ferret and liis assistant W. E. Love,
are to receive their reward.
It was at the eleventh hour that a
call wett forth for a tpeclal meeting
ot toe council ast evening. It was
signed by Messrs " Dueker, McMahan
Bartel, Brown and Englebert.
Immediately after the meeting had
been called to order Mr. McMahan
moved that the council resolve itself
into a committee of the whole, to,
which Mr. Englebert objected, saying
that there was no necessity for auy
secrecy in the consideration of the
mutter that had brought them togeth
er. Mr. Deuker said there were mat
ters of finance to be discussed, and
he thought it advisable for the body
to act as a committee of whole. The
motion of Mr. McMahan prevailed by
a vote of 6 to 4, and the members
retired to the seclusion of the control
ler's office, where they remained
about fifteen minutes.
When they retuurned to the coun
cil chamber Mr. McMahan introduced
an ordinance appropriating out of the
general fund the sum of $10,000 to be
used in the payment of amounts that
may become due to W. F. Charters
for the collection of omitted taxes
due the city of Richmond lor the year
ending December 31, 1907.
The ordinance was finally passed
under a suspension of the rules with
out a dissenting vote. t
It Is understood on good authority
that tax ferret Charters has been
quietly working in the city and has
dug up sequestered property to a
large amount. " The action of council
would lend credence to this report.
