disappointment and surprtse were boundless
when they unanlmously agreed with the min?

The abdicatlon edict of the Emperor ls hls _r*t

era at the heartaa m willlng to bet
lo to ?". that the list was .bstroyed long ago by
Howard S. ilan.. _ h->, with William F. Klng_
bandled Mr. Jerome's independent campaign
It was because of the burning deslre of Mr.
Shearn to know the names of these contributora
that the case was taken to Justlce Dayton late
yesterday afternoon. Mr. Shearn wlshed to have
the present examination of Mr. Jerome ad
I until some time in September. His ____
aon was that Mr. Gans was at present ln Europe..
bat was expected to return ln September. Jkt
that time. as Mr. Shearn earnestiy but rather
disjointediy explained. he might be able to get
an affldavit from Mr. Gans. If the affldavit
sh.ould afllrm that Mr. Gana had the Hat in hia
possession, then. by Mr. Jerome'a atatement
under oath. the document might be produeed Im

more, salted by bitter objuctior.a from Mr. ________
The court was ln doubt aa to whether the
acope of the present preiiminary actlon should.
under the code, be construed as including a
p..sti>onement to obtaln further materlal for ex?
amination. Justlce Dayton asked whether Mr.
Shearn could produce precedents for such aa
adjournment. The lawyer sald ha dtdn't have
any precedents on tap. but he felt sure he could
find some lf tlme were glven him. Accordlngly
an adjournment was taken until Monday morn?
lng. when Mr. Shearn Ia to appear wlth hl*
HEARING MAY OO OVER.
Mr Rand stipulated that the court order that
whatever Mr Shearn might dlg up from the
digests on this point be turned oTer to him aa
that answers might be prepared. Therefore.
should Mr. Shearn prove on Monday that tha
present examination may be adjourned until
September, the chances are atrong that lt wlll
be. Otherwise tba preiiminary examination of
Mr. Jerome will have been c.ncluded, since Mr.
Shearn admltted yesterday that he had finished

ARr.niENT GROWS HEATED.
Mr Jeame tumed white at this questlon. Hh_
Btrong jaw hardened -ill it looked as lnsolubla)
as the rear pedal of an army mule. Then h?|
handed out to Mr. Shearn a llttle clear cut di_->
sertatlon on th.e natural dtstinctlons of a gentle-?
man and the means Of appiylng such dlstinc?
tions to an examination. He even said. ln sai
many words. that Mr. Shearn would not dare taa
ask him such a quesnon in prlvate. Altogeth?*_,
for a few mlnutes the atmosphere was as tlng?

Acre Athletlo Club. But. of course. since thiJ
was ln a part of the Supreme Court. lt paaaed!
off wlth explanatlons. and not apologles. beeause.'
Mr. Shearn said he thought he had said nothing|
for whlch he should apologize.
Inasmuch as the present suits of Mr. Jeromo
are based on his dlsapproval of and denlal ot'
charges made by "The Journal" and "Tha
American" that he was supported in his cam?
paign by what Mr. Hearst's papera call "thej
Phinderbund" it was tnevltable that certauv
well known flnancters. should be mentioned. Mr.
Rand. speaklng for Mr Jerome. said yesterday.
that the easlest \isfl_.- fo pfc?we such contribu-'
tions would be to questlon Thomas F. Ryan*,
H. H. Rogers. John D. Rockefeller. sr.. and Au-(
gust Belmont. The courtmom crowd beeamo
more interested than ever at the mentlon off*
these names. but nothing more was said about*
The fatt that on Thursday Mr. Jerome had.
said he discovered a contract between the Gov?
ernor of a certain atate and the Mutual Life In?
surance Company was stlll fresh ln the mlnda
of the auditots of the examination. Nothing
wa.- said alu.ut this yesterday.
Mr Shearn told B Tribune reporter that ha
consldered the matter "tnteresting but not ma?
terial." and that for this rea son he had not
detred further Into this lode. Mr. Jerome. when
"The Q-UMBBS is dead. and there is no reason
for di.'ing up hts past and paradlng his name
and the name of his state in such an affalr."
\t the offlce af the Mutual lt was aaid tha*
there was M knowledge of this contract.
Before Justlce Daytm. yesterday. Mr. Sn_ee__?
said "Mr Jerome's only BJBt?B (for not pro
duclng the names. is that lt would be indellcat*
to glve the informati.n. but that !s shown to>
be an afterth.mgbt. beeause he testltled yester?
day that Charles W Morse had sent him ttv_
BVOOfl AtOa, whlch he returned." Mr. Shearn
then referred to Mr. Jerorr.es testlmony that
Samuel Vntermyer. personal counsel for Jamee)
Haxen Hyde. had contrlbuted $5,000 to tho fund.
on this ground. he said. Mr. Jerome shoak. ga?
ahead and tell the names of such other contrla
utors as he might know.
Referrlng to the newspaper articles'which Mr.
Jerome makes the baals of his suits. Mr Shearn
said: "Weecertalnly havo the rt. ? .?stahllsh
