Garvan Takes J-Jiidincc to Jerome
f<>r Conference — Sees Sturgis.
The District Attorney'e o«ee has ones more
begun hard work on the Intricacies of the Thaw
case, Assistant District Attorney Francis P.
Garvan. who went to his home, at Hartford,
Conn., on Saturday, will return some time to
day. One of the objects of his trip to his native
city waa to Interrogate William Bturgls, a friend
of Thaw's, who lives In that city. Sturgis has an
nounced his willingness to be examined by the
District Attorney, but has said that he Is for
Thaw -and would answer no questions except
white in the presence of his counsel. Mr. Gar
van did not have much hope of getting impor
tant revelations from Sturgis. Sturgis Is known
to have been an intimate friend of Thaw's, and
has dined -with him and his wife scores of times.
Ho is said Co know much about Thaw's private
life and character, and Is said to have been
present at a private dinner when Thaw is alleged
to have threatened to shoot "White.
Mr. Garvan not only arranged to talk with
Sturgis, but also to confer with District Attor
ney Jerome at Lakeville. When he left this
city on Saturday he took with, him two large
boxes filled with papers In the Thaw case.
Among them. It is understood on good author
ity, were the much sought for letters written by
Evelyn Nesbit to Stanford White prior to her
marriage to Thaw. It has been said that these
letters had been destroyed, but that report, it is
said, is incorrect. Mr. Garvan arranged to go by
automobile from Hartford to Lakeville yesterday
and spend the night with Mr. Jerome. While
with his superior it was planned to go over all
the evidence thus far collected in the case,
eliminate all that is not Immediately to ba
worked on, and get down to a basis whereby the
prosecution can go ahead without hindrance.
By the time Mr. Garvan returns, it is said, he
will be able to know exactly where the case
stands and have practically all the information
that the District Attorney desires for bringing the
case to trial at almost a moment's notice. The
fact, as announced, that the District Attorney
has possession of the letters which Evelyn Xes
bit wrote to White is considered a strong point
in the prosecution's favor. These letters, next to
the widely discussed affidavit made by Evelyn
Xesbit are considered as important as any bit of
evidence on which Thaw's fate may hinge. Not
an inkling of their contents has been divulged,
and the District Attorney will, in all probability,
guard them as securely as he has the affidavit.
That they exist, however, there is said to be no
STORMY SCENES IN SANATORIUM.
Important revelations were made yesterday
regarding the time when Evelyn Nesbit was ill
at Dr. Walker's sanatorium, at No. 33 East 33d
street. Miss Vesbit became ill shortly aft<»r h<=r
return to New York from Paris with Thaw, that
trip having been the one on which the escapades
in Paris were so annoying to Mrs. Holmon, tho
young girl's mother, who was practically de
serted In Paris. Mrs. Holman, who returned to
New York shortly after her daughter, visited her
daughter while in the sanatorium every day.
They were almost "on the outs" at that time,
and it was only the mother's fear for her daugh
ter's life that caused her to visit her. It is said
that there were many stormy scenes between
mother and daughter.
Another Important point in connection with
this illness is that Harry Thaw and Stanford
White were frequent visitors at the sanato
rium. Whether they met there is not known,
but these visits only served to increase the
hatred between them. The District Attorney's
office has learned of these facts through a wit
ness whose testimony is believed to be of con
siderable value as showing a further cause for
enmity between Thaw and White. The various
links in the chain of Evelyn Nesbit's life from
the time she met White and Thaw, and her
meetings with them, are said to be thus com
Clifford W. Hartridge rested yesterday, not
working on the case. He has been working
about eighteen hours out of every twenty-four,
and found that he would either have to take a
day off or run the risk of illness. Mrs. Harry
Thaw remained at the Lorraine all day, refusing
to discuss the case.
The departure of the Rev. John A. Wade, the
Episcopalian chaplain at the Tombs, for Eng
land with a message and a bundle of letters from
Thaw to the Countess of Yarmouth, his sister,
is considered as having an important bearing on
the defence. It is known that Mr. Hartridge
desired Mr. Wade to act as the messenger, and
the letters are thought to be of importance re
garding the attitude of the countess on appear
ing at the trial la behalf of her brother.
Owing to the absence of Mr. Wade. Thaw did
not attend the Episcopalian service In the Tomba
yesterday, but Instead attended the Methodist
servlco. conducted by the Rev. Mr. Sanderson,
the chaplain. Afterward Mr. Sanderson con
ferred with Thaw for an hour.
Thaw had the freedom of tho second tier, on
which his cell is located, all day yesterday, and
walked about a good part of the time. As no
visitors are allowed on Sunday, he passed the
remainder of the time reading the papers and
'•doping out" the horses. Thaw and some of
the keepers discussed the horse races at great
length, and he appeared to take more interest
in them than he did in his own case.
A well dressed man and woman called at the
Tombs yesterday and tried to see Thaw. They
were refused admittance, as they did not have
special passes. They drove to the Tombs In a
hansom, and apparently were indignant when
they found they would not be admitted. They
said they were intimate friends of Thaw, were
stopping at the Waldorf, and were insistent, but
their demands were refused. They said they
would return to-day. No one at the Tombs
knew them, and it was their first call it was

Hamilton McK. Twombly has positively declined

company's board of trustees since 1900. He is a
director of the Chicago * Northwestern Railway
Company and a dozen other railroads, as well as a
director of the National Bank of Commerce and
various other banks and trust companies. Mr.
Twombly was nominal.,: by the trustees at their
meeting on July 17. «nd his name was placed on tho
ticket filed in Albany the same afternoon.
The Peabody-Rogers Interests, it Is said, earnestly
wished that Mr. Twombly's name should appear
on the ticket, as ho was one of the few truste.es
who successfully withstood the ordeals of the spe
cial insurance grand Jury end tho Armstrong and
On tho day following Mr. Twombly's departure
for Europe it waa prematurely reported that he
had filed his resignation from the board with Presi
dent Peabody. At Mr. Twombly's Madison (N. J.)
home a Tribune reporter was told last night that
Mr. Twombly was In Newport. Jfo authoritative
statement was forthcoming as to the reasons for his
refusal to stand for re-election.
Should the Supreme Court in Albany, in the man
damus proceedings now pending, decide that In
surance Superintendent Keliey has power to re
move from the administration ticket the names of
the four international policyholders" committee
men nominated without their consent, this will
leave five vacancies on the ticket.

Mr. Baker returned from Europe on the St.
Loujs on Saturday evening. While in Europe he
had several conferences with Wilfred Lawson, sec
retary of the British committee of the association,
and was in constant communication with Dr. Julius
I'llmann, of Vienna, a member of the association's
executive committee. Mr. Baker, in an interview
issued yesterday, .strongly criticised the Mutual
Life's administration ticket, and the nomination
of the four international commltteemen. Should
the policyholders el»ct the administration ticket,
they would have voted to permit "a group of New
York financiers to use their funds as a financial
pool for speculative purposes." Mr. Baker was In
favor of the naming of a policyholders' ticket be
fore August 20.
Regarding the international committee, he said:
"From the time we were satisfied that Mr. Unter
myer's committee h%d substantial backing we have
appreciated that union should be had on a single
ticket which all Mutual Life policyholders could
support. We have, therefore, made no commit
ments, and such, I am assured, is Mr. Untermyer's
position as well."
The association will begin to-day to mail its first
circular to policy holder? of the Mutual Life.

THINKS HE HAS NEW RUBBER PLANT.
Mexican Planter Believes Product from Vine
May Affect the Trade.
Mexico City. July 29 (Special).— owner of a
large cacao plantation in the northeastern part of
Chiapas says he has discovered a rubber vine on
his property that excels all others. The discovery
was made by Chinese laborers working for him.
The Chinese gathered vines which grow In a
dense, tangled mass, and wove them Into rude ham
mocks. The hammocks were especially elastic on
account of the large amount of rubber in them. and
this was particularly so if the vines were dried
some time. This fact was the cau»e of th© popu
larity of the vine hammocks with tho Chinese.
The attention of the owner of the hacienda was
naturally called to the peculiar properties of the
strange vine. Upon investigation, according to the
reports, it was found to carry a high percentage
of rubber. It amounts to about 20 or 25 per cent of
the weight of the vine, and Is ro strong that, on
breaking the wood, the rubber still holds.
In other rubber plants, as far us is known, there
Is so much rosin and essential oil in the rubber
that it is not elastic at all until extracted and
treated. It is more like a viscous sap. like that
of the fig tree. In the new vine, however, there
appears to be a total absence of essential oil and
rosin. It is not so certain a fact, however, »hat
this property will add to tho facility of extraction.
It may make It more difficult.
If it shall be found that it Is possible to separate
this new rubber from the plant in any economical
manner, the discoverer believes that It will greatly
affect the industry. There are vast tangles of the
vine, arid the percentage of rubber Is higher than
in any other known plant, he says.

Hints at Future Federation— New
St. Johns, N. F.. July 29.— Eary Grey, at a
luncheon in his honor at Government Housa
yesterday, said that his visit to Newfoundland
was proving a most delightful one. He had been
profoundly and agreeably surprised at the natu
ral beauties and the material prosperity of the
island. The earl eald he brought no suggestion
of federation from Canada, for he knew that
union sentiment did not exist in the colony. If
Newfoundland at any future date should decide
to seek union. Canada's door would be found
open, and it would not be necessary to knock.
Earl Grey expressed the belief that St. John's is
destined ere long to become the western termi
nus of a fast transatlantic steamer service.
Governor MacGregor assured Earl Grey that
he was a heartily welcome visitor. Premier Bond
concurred in this, and said it was the hope of
the colony that a fast transatlantic line would be
an accomplished fact within a year or two.

VISdUT U'ISS HIS BET.
Broker Rides 100 1-2 Miles in Nine
Hours and Sine Minutes,
H. K. Vingut. the broker, rode 100% miles at
a gallop in nine hours and nine minutes on the
track at Belmont Park yesterday and won a
bet of $1,000. About two weeks ago Mr. Vingut
got into a dispute with Edward L. Norton over
the question of a man's endurance in the sad
dle. When Mr. Norton offered to bet he could
not ride one hundred miles in the saddle In
twenty-four hours Mr. Vingut took him up and
started in training at once.
With a number of friends and relays of horses.
Mr. Vingut went out to the track yesterday
morning. The start was at 4:42 a. m-. and Mr.
Vingut galloped twenty-five and one half miles
before stopping for breakfast, at 6:50. Then he
took time for a shave and started riding again
at 8:10. At luncheon time. 12:35. he had cov
ered forty-three and one half miles more. All
the time the rain was slowly drizzling down, but
that did not trouble Mr. Vingut.
He mounted again at 2:45. About a quarter
of an hour afterward a thunder storm crashed
its way over the track, and the sky was so over
cast that Mr. Vingut could not be seen from the
clubhouse. A bolt of lightning shattered the
three-quarters post just after he had passed
it, but he kept on and finished at o 21.
Mr. Vingut showed little fatigue after his ex
ploit, and appeared later at a dinner given in
his honor by Mr. Norton at the Racquet and

An extraordinary freak of disease has been re
