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
"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
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.*
"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

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

H*len, carrying officials of th* L^hi h & New
Kngland Railroad Company who were journey
ing: over the New York. Susquehanna & West

The accident was due to a confusion of orders.
The Helen had orders to wait at a siding to
allow a train to pass. One train went by. and
then the engineer pulled out. No order, it Is
said, had been given regarding the freight. Tin
Helen was just getting under way or the acci

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.

Milwaukee Police Think He May Have Been
Spirited Away by New Yorkers.
[By Telegraph to The Tribune.]
Milwaukee, Aug. 26. — The police, who are trying
to solve the mystery of the disappearance of Ralph
IV. Eddy, the Chicago salesman who disappeared
here en the eve of his wedding, are now giving
their attention to a mysterious stranger who called
for Eddy at the Planklnton House the day he dis
appeared. He found Eddy In the smokins room
and addressed him as Ralph. That was the last
time that any one remembers seeing Eddy.
The stranger i? believed by the police to know
something «!>out a New York murder of which
Eddy was a witness, and Is thought to he th* emis
sary of New York thugs, whose lives are said to
be in danger from the electric chair, to prevent
Eddy's testimony.

Sculptor Gives Bill of Particulars m
The suit of .1. Q. A. 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 changes which the defendants requested Mr.
Ward to make in the statue were to make the
figure of General Sheridan less corpulent and to
change the uniform and head dress. These re
quests were made at various times between July 1.
UK. and January 1. 1807. 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.

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

license Is Issued by the clerk of his town or cltv
and presented to him before he solemnizes su.ti

fathered the marriage license law. when asked this
morning relative to the decision of Attorney Gen

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

Queens Prosecutor Says He Will
Not Seek Rcnomination. j
! Ira G. Darrin. 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."
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

so at the polls.
"If the people then conclude that I ought not to j
be returned. It Is their duty to vote n«a!nst me. j
ami 1 can fln.l no fault with their decision.
"I do not think, however, that two or three self- j

"Let Us Give Cooks to the World/
Says a Negro Clubwoman. .
"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
! 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."
A number of the directors of the New York s-c
tlon of the Council of Jewish Women who are sasß

the benefit of that organization last week at Th»

The breakfast salad Is a unique Innovation, but
a most acceptable one In warm weather. 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
