MAY HOLD OUT LETTERS TO QUIET ' vv/s s< '■' sn "■ Warning Xotc Xorc in Pti9if*itm of Bayxide Yacht Club Man. It was said yesterday that it was doubtful that the letters written to William K. Annls to tell him of his danger from the animosity of Captain Hams would be produced at the trial. These letters, the existence of which has been denied more than once. have been la the r,,.,50r ,,.,50 of a member of the Eav.cide Tacht Club ev-r since the shooting, and have not hern turned ever to District Attorney I»at rin Not only Is th* name of Mains mentioned in them, it is said, but the names of several other yachtsmen prominent in the Bayslde Yacht Oub. To keep the scandal from spreading to the others, It Is reported that these letters will be suppressed and. even If they do ultimately reach the hands of District Attorney Darrin. efforts will be made to persuade him not to use them «s evidence, whether or not they will aid the prosecution Whether Dis trict Attorney Uarrin will accede to such a request to any further extent than did District Attorney Jerome In the Thaw trial Is doubtful. In that case names which had no direct bearing in the case Were ■whispered to counsel and thus kept from being made public. No further favor, it is said, is to be expected from th» prosecution In this case. In addition to the witness unearthed by the de fence on Tuesday there is a woman who Bars she has knowledge -<! the relations alleged to have ex isted between Annis and Mrs. Hams. Both Mr. Mclntyre tad Mi. Shay said yesterday that they tad had no communication in any form with this woman. Mr. I'arrin minimized the effect of the testimony of the witness unearthed by the prosecu tion. "When Captain Hams shot Mr. Annis." he said, "he expected that all the army officers would rally to his defence, either financially or morally. When the defence found thai the officers were not doing lnis they produced this mysterious witness, bo sought to help them by casting aspersions on all array women and army officers. This was done not only to influence the possible Jurors, but to make all army officers so angry that they would not give me any information, even though they -were not Inclined to give any active aid to Captain Halns." BELITTLES NEW WITNESS. Of the statement of the witness, a lawyer of high fip.rding. that the Bayside Yacht Club was the scene of certain disgraceful incidents, the District Attorney said that the character of the men who composed the club assured him that this was not true. On» of the hou?e rules of the club is that ™> liquor shall be sold on the premises, and he said he was sure that nothing of the sort intimated by the rev witness could have taken place with out the knowledge of Commodore Smith, who cer tainly would not tolerate any such conduct. On the Other hand, It is reported that a man who bought a house near the club, that he might be near it at all times, resigned after he had seen several week-end parties there. James A. Dayton. Special Assistant District At torney, spent a good part of the day following up 8 tip which was sent to him over the telephone. He said his informant knew enough about the wit ness produced on Tuesday night by the defence to discredit his testimony. When he returned from his quest he -would net say whether it had been productive of any information or not. r v. Major Hams went lwck to Chicago, his leave of Ebsence being about to expire. The major is with the headquarters of .h- 1 Apartment of the Lakes and will return here to aid his brother as soon as he can get another furlough. While in Chicago he will work on an end of the case which was sug e»sted yesterday to the defence. This is expected to produce material KsaHa. and the major will not return here until after he has completed his investigation. Before he left this city Major Hams told how the story of the infidelity of Mrs. Hams had Effected Captain Hams. "Captain Hams. when h' reached San Francisco on the transport General Crook. he said, 'received .. a letter telling him what had occurred In his ab sence This was the first story which had come to him. "While he was in the Philippines he had re ceived a letter insinuating that all was not right In his absence, but this insinuation was of so slight a character as to make no impression. The mo ment that Captain Hams got his mail in San Fran cisco he went to Colonel Bellinger, of the transport service, and aafced for leave of absence -for family reasons.' The colonel replied: 'Go ahead! 1 will |B it up for you.* STARTED EAST RIGHT AWAY. "Captain Hams started East right away, and for eight nights on the train was unable to sleep. He was In a state of complete collapse when he reached Tort Hamilton, as the records of the post surgeon fill show. All the way on the train he kept walk- V ing through the cars, muttering: 'It cant be true! / li can't be true!' ■ "Captain Hams went at or, •■ ■> his quarters, where his wife was entertainJii? friends fin the veranda. As soon as possible l«e drew her into th<s house and told her the- contents of the letu-r he had received on his arrival In 'Frisco. She de - lA ,-< everything in it. Then, to show his confidence In her and to show the whole post that he did not believe the scandal, lie asked her to telephone to Annie and Mrs.. Annis to have dinner with .them that night. Sh«" went to the telephone and stayed there for fifteen minutes — so long that Captain Hams finally went to the telephone himself. He discovered then that she had forgotten to ask An ate to dinner. j "Anni? did not keep the dinner engagement, but they did go automobile riding, and Captain Mains paid the fine when they were arrested for speeding. The next day Captain Hams heard the post gossip about his vrlfe and learned of her absence for sev eral days. She said she had gone to th-» moun tains, but bar story of that trip aroused his sus picions and she confessed. Before the confession he had been so angry with his brother. T. Jenkln« Hairs, because or these stories, chat he would not apeak to him. That night, before the confession ■was made. Captain Hams walked up and down the room, embracing his wife and then throwing her to on*? side. He was crazy, absolutely. a.« he saw his first Fuspicionf=, which bad b«^-n temioratily lolled, confirmed. After that a*atea#on was made he did not see Ann's until the ;lay that he killed him. ■ '- my pocket 1 have proofs thai be did not ex pect to see Annis when he went to Bay«ide. I can prove that contention by dislni erected witnesses as v.-sIL My brothers were on their -way home -when they met Annis. and the inquiries they made for him before the shooting will be ajl ■ explained et the trial.** -'» - Major Hams said also that wTien he! came here from Boston when the andal first came out even then his brother was not the man he had ' b»e.n. He said that from the time he first discov •red his wife's infidelity . Captain Hams had changed. At no time, even when the divorce suit feßJa first brought, he said, could Captain JI.-ilijn hear to hear the name of Annis mentioned. District Attorney Darrin said yesterday that the trial of the Hams brothers was not going to be an -open sewer." but a murder trial. People had I grown weary of brainstorm murders, and the Thaw triaL hi said, had d!sjru«t«l the public Mr.. Dayton spoke highly of Annis. He said that . ; he had known Ann for fifteen years, and that he ; . C.I not believe that he was capable of speaking 1 lightly of women or boasting of conquests over c tbeni.

TWIXS AM) COUSINS WED. Similarity of Names Puzzles Mar riage License Bureau. On Monday. William A. Varty. journalist, of Havana. Cuba, and Miss Kate E. Gotthold. of No. 50G Amsterdam avenue, got a marriage license at the City Hall. Yesterday a young man and a young woman of the same names and addresses also got a license. Miss Gotthold on Monday said that she was twenty-four years old. that she was born In Jacksonville. Fla.. and that she was the daughter of Ellis Milton Gott hold and Jennie Linn Gilbert Gotthold. The name of the father as given yesterday was the same, so was the age. but the mother's name was put down as -Jennie I,yn " The Mr. Varty on Monday said his father was born in Scotland and yesterday, America. The mother's maiden name on Monday was Mary Catherine Twyman and yesterday it was just Kate. Had not a clerk in the .office of the city clerk remembered that he had passed a license to two young persons of the same names on Mon day there would have been no confusion In Mr. Scully's office. The ages of the men differed, the one on Monday giving his as thirty-three years and yesterday as thirty-two. They both had registered themselves as. "journalists." The writings were not the same, but then one might have been disguised. The clerk remembered the young woman. He said they were the same." and pretty, too. Mr. Scully scented a plot, and he sent one of his men in hot haste to No. 506 Amsterdam avenue. Mrs. Gotthold met him at the door of the apartment on the third floor. Yes. her daugh ter had got a marriage certificate in the after noon. So had her daughter obtained one on Monday, but not the same daughter. They were twins. Mr. Scully's sleuth began to breathe more freely. But about Mr. Varty. hah! Well. It was very much the same. They were cou sins. The coincidences, as it seemed to the inquiring clerk, were odd. but— then he thought he had a point. "How does It come that the girls have the same given names?" he asked, with a third degree air. There again Mrs Gotthold cleared the at mosphere. They had a favorite uncle- named Bugene and a favorite aunt named Kate. Xeither could l>e slighted, so the girls were named Kate Eugenia, one called Kate f..r short and the other Gene. At 7 o'clock last evening the Rev. Or Hough ton, of the I.ittle Church Around the Corner, performed the marriage services, and in the little apartment in Amsterdam avenue there followed a celebrat ion.

Ward, the sculptor, against' thirty or more members of the Society of the Army of the Cumberland to recover $32,500 for the re jection of his model of an equestrian statue of General Philip H. Sheridan, was before Justk-e Bischoff yesterday in the Supreme Court on a motion of Philip J. McCook. on behalf, of Brigadier General Henry C. Hodges, a defendant, for a bill of particulars of the claim for which the action was brought. John A. Dutton. of Hurry & Dutton. counsel for Mr. Ward, submitted a bill of particulars setting forth that the names of the "certain other mem bers of the society" who composed the committee known as the Sheridan eques.ian statue commit tee of the Society of the Army of the Cumberland when the contract in the suit was executed on April 23 l:*C. were Henry Stone, Russell A. Alger. James Ha, net A. C. Ducat. J. D. Morgan and the defendant. Major William H. Lambert, of Germantown, Perm. • Mr. Ward began the performance of the contract. the bill says. almost immediately after it was made, and the design submitted to the society be fore the making of the ntract was a group com prising the figure of a man mounted on the figure of a horse, and representing General Sheridan as a man of action in the act of sharply reining in his horse after a rapid gallop and swinging Ms hat from his head in recognition of the soldiers 01 people assembled. .

The bill of particulars says that the requests made by th- defendants to Mr Ward to delay work upon the statue affected all work thereof: that .Mr. Ward worked almost continuously on the statue from April 2J. ML until January, 1907. and that the notices which the de fendants gave to Mr. Ward that they would not receive or accept this sta«ue or any statue of gen eral Sheridan made by Mr. Ward or pay for the same, and that they would not complete their contract, wore in writing. Following an argument as to whether the plain tiff should be required to submit further particu lars, justice Bischoff took the papers and reserved decision. WHERE MARRIAGES MAY TAKE PLACE Jackson Says in Place Where License Is Issued— Cobb Says Anywhere in State Albany. Aug. 3fi.-Attorney General Jackson. In sn opinion given to-day to the State CommlFSioner of Health. Eugene H Porter, holds that those who desire to be married in New York State must have the ceremony solemnized in the town or city In which the marriage license has been Issued. It ap pears thnt many couples In order to avoid pub licity have secured licenses in one part of the state and then have had the ceremonies performed outside of tlie town or city In which the license was procured. The Attorney General holds that when a person authorized to perform a marriage ceremony unites a couple who have secured a license outside of the town or city where the ceremony is solemnized he is guilty of a misdemeanor. His opinion says Clergymen or other persons authorized by th" laws of this state to perform marriage ceremonies should for their own protection *>■* tnat the provi sions of the law a-.- carefully and fully adhered to, and that the proper llcenfe is Issued by the clerk of the town or city In which the, ceremony Is to be performed as well as presented to htm before such ceremony shall be Hofemnlzed. When therefore a marriage license is issued to non-residents of te state, and they go to a town or city other than the town or city from where such license Is Issued and have the marriage ceremony performed the clergyman or other person solemnizing sucn marriage violates the provisions of the law ana in mv opinion Is guilty of a misdemeanor. Such marriage mast, under the statute, be performed In the town or city where license was Issued. It i? the duty of such clergyman to nee that such license Is Issued by the clerk of his town or cltv and presented to him before he solemnizes su.ti marriage. Wsmtusjj, N. V., Aug. U. ■■■■tor Cob*, who fathered the marriage license law. when asked this morning relative to the decision of Attorney Gen eral Jackson, said that he could not nee •hot* the Attorney General had any ground on which to bane such a holding. Senator Cobb said that was not the intent of the law. hut that It wan Intended that when a license was obtained In the locality In which the bride resided, th« partly might go any where In the state they saw fit and be married under such license.

District Attorney of Queens j County, announced yesterday that he was not : looking for either the Democratic nomination or even a Democratic indorsement for re-election. In spite of this statement his friends among the Democrats, after reviewing his career as District Attorney, believe that he will be one of the best candidates that they could put forward this fall. I Mr. Darrin was a civil lawyer of considerable iepu- j tation when lie was elected District Attorney, three , years ago, but had never been in the criminal courts at that time. Since then he has rarely lost J, a case where it was in any way possible, cramped , as he has been by a limited appropriation and a • limited office force, to obtain any sort of legal cvi- ' dence. When he took office there were sixteen j poolrooms in Long Island City alone. Now, it is I said, there has not been one for months. There Is r.o open gambling: In fact, both Mr. Darrin's po- j litical friends and enemies agree that Queens County has not been fo clean in fifty years as it ; has been since his administration began. i "The records of my office show In the two an.l : a half years I have been in office." said Mr. Darrin, j yesterday, "that more than twice as much business has been' done without a courthouse as In any simi- j lar period in the history of the county with a court- j house, and that the percentage of convictions has | been larger than ever before. I "It was well known at the time of my election j that I had practised law in the civil courts all my | life, and that I had never at any time had any , experience whatever in the prosecution or defense of criminal cases, and no one expected that I would be able to meet the leaders of the bar in this city j and overpower them by the brilliancy of mv at- i tainments. ■ j "While I have never resorted to brass hand." or , skyrockets to attract the attention of th-> people to . my accomplishments, or run a press bureau in con- i nection with the office. I think that I an safely . leave the question of my efficiency to the people of . the county. In every police court I have kept a : representative of my office all the time, something | done in no other county in the state. When the ; police court has discharged a man against whom a well based complaint has been made, I make it a point to send a circular letter to the complainant asking him to call and tell his story to me. I have taken such complaints before the grand jury, and often secured a conviction where the police magis trate had refused to entertain the complaint. "As to whether or not I shall seek to secure a nomination and re-election depends to a very large extent upon the result of the primaries to be held on September 8. I shjll not ask the support of any party leader or delegate elected to the Republican convention. If my party associates believe that I have performed the duties of my office fairly, and with reasonable degree of intelligence and vigor, and if I shall become convinced that any substan tial number of citizens outside of my party favor my election. I may decide to again become a candi date, but under no circumstances will I seek either the nomination or election in the sense of making a campaign. The duties of my office require my undivided attention and energy, and I shall let my political future take care of Itself. At the best, it is not an alluring prospect, and I am too old a man to chase rainbows." CASSIDY WANTS TO RUN. I Senator Would Let People Pass on j His Record at Polls. Senator Owen Cassldy. of the <Oth Senate Dis- . trict, one Of the men who voted against the anti racetrack gambling bills, and against whose re nomination a vigorous fight Is being made, said j last night that he desired a renomination In or,] ; that the people might have a chance at the polls to ; pass on his record. Senator Cassldy Is not alto- ( gether sure of his renomination. as. although the ; delegate* have been pledged to him. powerful in- : terests are opposing him. When the Senator was asked as to his attitude j toward a renomination at the Hoffman House last j night, ho said: "I cannot do leu* than give the people of my i district a chance to approve or disapprove of my | service In the legislature. To retreat in a coward- j ly manner at this time would be more Ignoble than ; to suffer an honest defeat. I have no feeling In the matter, and those who think, after mature <l«*- ; liberation, that I ought to be rebuked have my j renjx-ot.

"Teach our girls to cook.- was the advice of Mrs. I IV I.ayton, of Philadelphia, who. with Miss Mattie Bowen. of Washington, led the symposium on "Our Working Girls" at yesterday's session of. the convention of the National Association of Col ored Women's Clubs, at the Concord Baptist Church. Brooklyn. "I tell yon," she continued, "we are spoiling good housewives In trying to make stenographers, clerks, etc.. of so many girls. The white race have given up art, they have given us literature, they have given us , many things we cannot improve upon. Don't let us try to duplicate what they have done; but let us teach our women the dignity of work. The world Is learning that health and •longevity depend in large measure upon the rook. I believe that in a few years the domestic servant will be expected to understand the science of nu trition. Why. a little while ago it was thought that everybody could take care of a child. Now. the best families have trained nurses for their nurse maids. In the days when these things are re garded as they should be. the girl who can do domestic service will have the advantage. My own daughter is studying domestic science, and I hope , that when that "girl graduates she will be brave j enough ami sensible enough to go Into some family j incognita, and work, and study conditions, so that* ! she can help her sisters." j Mrs. I.ayton said that the domestic servant was i really better paid than the factory hand, because she got her room and board in addition to her : wages. "And she is better protected," the apeaker added. "The conditions unde' which many of our j women work are dreadful, and they are most I dreadful in New York." ; Mrs I>ayton has Just been visiting some dens •■ ' vice in New York, after trying to gain access to ' them for three years, and she '.s more convinced than ever that the emigration of negro girls from | tl c South to the great cities should be discouraged. i "Above all." she concluded, "let us teach our girls the dignity of domestic service. Why. it is the negro servants who create the white sentiment 1 toward our women. Our white friends don't know ' the splendid, capable women who come to this convention, but they do know Mary and Dinah in | their kitchens, and it is Mary and Dinah who i form their feeling toward us." "The negro woman is the most pitiable being on ! earth." sold another speaker in the symposium, ; "and the negro worklngwoman is most pitiable of all." ! Miss Bowen made an energetic plea for better I treatment of the domestic servant. ; "You don't have to take a maid on your lap and i rock her to he good »o her." she said. "Just treat i her like a human being." BENEFIT GARDEN PARTY. A number of the directors of the New York s-c tlon of the Council of Jewish Women who are sasß m-rir.g j>t Far Rockaway. gave a garden party tM the benefit of that organization last week at Th» C.pKes. the home of Mrs. Samuel Kubie. the treas urer.

It Is quite different from the dinner salad, being mere ly a little appetizer of acid fruit or fresh green things. If the breakfast Is rather heavier than usual, as it Is likely to be. for Instance, on a Sun day, the breakfast salad is especially attractive. A few water cresses seasoned with salt and pepper and moistened with vinegar make a delicious breakfast appetizer with broiled steak. Delicate bleached dandelion or endive, served with bacon cut In dice and dressed with salt, pepper and vine gar. is equally appropriate with broiled veal. Stli-ed tomatoes, a few lettuce leaves, or even a few cucumbers, served very cold, are Mill other Good Fiction Makes the most acceptable reading for the Summer time And Next Sunday's Magazine of The Tribune Will furnish its readers with a choice assortment of stories. _ His Right Miranda £ Higher Life Is a story of Naval Life.
