THAW AWAIT.S ORDEAL
Hit Counsel Prepares Him for
Heckling by Jerome.
It is now regarded as doubtful whether Harry K.
Thaw will so on the •witness stand to-day in the
Insanity proceedings which will be resumed before
Justice Isaac N. Mills at White Plains. His lawyer.
Charles Mwsilibiiim i said tbat be has several lay
witnesses who would be examined at the opening
of the proceedings, and after these would come th«
medical experts art would testify in Thaw's be
half. Mr. Mots Jisiswt spent the entire day in the
Jail with Thaw, going over a mass of testimony
which will be presented. He would not give the
name? of the Medical experts, but it was teamed
thafithey may be Dr. Harris. Dr. Evans. Dr. H.
.TTtm Schmid, of White Plains, and Dr. William J.
Meyer, the physician at the White Plains jail.
"We have i number of gooxl experts." said Mr.
Morschauser. -but have not decided yet whom we
will put or.
Mr. Morschauser was asked if he would oppose
the appearance of District Attorney Jerome, and
replied: '"Certainly not: although he has no busi
ness to interfere after he ha? announced that he
would have nothing further to do with the case
when it was taken out of New York County."
"Do you expect that Evelyn Thaw will be called
as a wit ness?'"
"We don't want her. but if rhe comes back there
are a lot of questions we will a?k hsr." was the
reply.
Mr. Mwsilisiisn added thai her letters to Thaw,
which are now in evidence, would be read In court
in rebuttal at her testimony.
The report that Thaw was ben drilled for the
bearing. and ' that, above all thing* be had been
cautioned not to display his temper under the
cross-examination of Mr. Jerome, was denied by
Mr. Morschauser.
•'I am not drilling he said. "I am simply
Spring over the situation with him for my own In
formation. I hope the case will be Unit in the
coming week. If it isn't. I am afraid 1 will be
finished."
Thaw has rot succeeded in getting the much
eoveted out-of-door exercise which he demanded
from the Court before going on the witness stand.
a* Justice Mills has signed no order to that effect.
and Sheriff Scherp. without such an order, would
not let Thaw out of jail. ThaWs only exercise
has been a half-hour walk every morning in the
corridor of the jail.
Thaw -;.--. to be terrified at all over
the prospect of a heckling by his old foe, District
Attorney Jerome. "I welcome any test." he said.
"Mr. Jeromes questioning will only help in my
effort to show the Court my complete Parity."

JERSEY APPLEJACK IN PERIL.
San Jose Scale Has Attacked the Orchards,
Making Light Crop Certain.
Trenton, X. J.. July C 3 (Special).— The look for
the apple crop this year in New Jersey is rather
gloomy, with a consequent dismal prospect for the
fasnous Jersey app'ejack. The scale has affected
the trees, and many orchards have been seriously
dair.ajr«»d or entirely destroyed by the plague.
Several years ago the San Jo?£ scale attacked
the peach orchards of New Jersey and Delaware
and made havoc in Central and South Jersey. En
tire orchards were destroyed. There has been re
planting, but the orchards ar« comparatively new.

ENDS LIFE AT BALL GAME.
- Despondent because he was growing too old to
play baseball. Anton Beitr. -who lived with his son
at No. 303 Norman street, Brooklyn, committed
suicide yesterday afternoon by stabbing himself
throuaij the heart with a carving knife. He was
eighty-three years old., and had always been a
"fan" and a player. Kis greatest recreation was
to get out on the lots with the boys and play ball
•with them. Yesterday he went to« game at Halsey
street and Wyckoff avenue, and while it was in
progress •walked out on the diamond, drew the
knife and plunged it into his breast. He was dead
■when a physician arrived.
THESUTTONTESTIMON
21 any Discrepancies Pointed Out —
New Witnesses To-day.
Annapolis. July — "I am not vindictive: all I
desire is to clear my brother's name of the disgrace
of suicide."
So spoke to-n!ffht Mrs. Rose Sutton Parker, Bister
of Lieutenant James N". Sutton. of Portland. Ore..
the circumstances of whose death the court of In
quiry will continue to investigate to-morrow at the
resumption of the hearing In the Naval Academy
auditorium.
All the witnesses so far. with the exception of
0 •• two chauffeurs, have been officers of the marine
corps, of which Sutton was a member. Notwith
standing the fact that all who claimed knowledge
(Mi the. point have consistently testified that he shot
himself, the remainder of their stories of the inci
dents of the Ogbt with Lieutenant Adams which
l^d to Button's death have been contradictory.
The decision in the case will come from the Navy
T>epartment at Washington on the recommenda
tions filed by this court. There is reason to believe
that tbe investigation may lead to several court
rr.artials, with a possible dismissal from the ser
vice for some of the young officers who were In
volved in the brawl which cost Sutton his liK>.
With the opening of the second week of the In
vestigation to-morrow, witnesses will be called on
"the other side" to refute the theory of suicide.
Mrs. Parker will perhaps be the principal witness
in that respect. Her testimony fa expected to dis
close several important points in refutation of the
suicide theory, based on the facts obtained by her
and her mother in their work in the last two years
which resulted in the reopening of the case. She
vill probably not testify until the remaining two or
three navy witnesses on hnnd are disposed of.
Professor Gilbert P. Column of the Naval Acad
f;;iy. and Lieutenant Templin M. Potts, jr.. of th»?
marine corps, will probably be witnesses to-morrow.
The inquiry is likely to occupy two or three days
. r,-,i . and then adjourn until August 1. when Bur
geon F. C. Cook, IT. S. N. and Lieutenant Harold
H. Utley. of the marine corps, who have been pub
par.aed ,i« witnesses, are expected to arrive from
abroad.
The Inquiry thus far has been notable for the
conflicting nature of the. testimony adduced. The
young lieutenants of the marine corps— Adams.
OMorman. Willing and Bevan— stories which.
while agreeing in many points, ' yet differ ma
tt-rially in essentials. Adams swore that no one
was sitting on Button when the fatal shot was
fired. Two of the others testified that two or three
men were sitting on the prostrate form of Button,
1\ ing face downward, with his right arm under him.
These swore that one of the men on Sutton was
Srrgeant De Hart, who. in turn, swore positively
that he had not even touched Sutton, much less sat
upon him.
M'-'St of the witnesses who have testified upon that
point declare that Sutton shot himself, and ex
press their belief that he did so Intentionally; this
in support of the assertion that he was a suicide
On the other hand. Surgeon Pickrell, nsk»<l if the
fatal wound could have been self-inflicted und^r
the conditions described by the young lieutenants,
declared that it would have been utterly Ira
possible.
The iiSIBJff witness, too, gave Important te«t!m#iv
■*s tc the location of the wound, important In view
of the fact that he is 8 surgeon and was one of
tKe first to reach Sutton"s side after the shot was
tired. He also examined him in the marine hos
pital, where he was taken Just after the shooting.
Acc< rdine' to this witness, the fatal wound was
nearly on a line drawn from ear to ear across the
skull, and rot far from the middle of such a line,
while all the other testimony thus far given as to
the location of the wound is that it was a little
abo . t and behind the right ear.
It has been testified that the wound was inflicted
with a service revolver, a weapon nearly a foot
long, and this, it is pointed out, would have mad*
it additionally difficult for Button to have fired the
shot without caving in the top of his head. Yet
the wuund is said to have been a clean cut, round
one. such as would have been made by a set vice
bullet .fir»d at a short distanc*.
A farther notable discrepancy in the testimony
i? as to what occurred in the automobile before
th» party reached "the dump." While some of the
officers on the witness stand have declared that
Sutton was quarrelsome and disagreeable and In
sulted A.dams, who protested, on the way from
Carvel Hall, the chauffeur. Owens, swore that
Adams sat beside him during the trip and said not
a word to any Be. and that the three in the rear
of y the automobile laughed and chatted pleasantly
together.
While the officers declared that Button was the
aggresFDr. Owens swore that Adams Jumped out
•A-hen he stopped the machine and at once began to
get in fighting trim, while Sutton said he did not
want to fight: and that, notwithstanding this, and
the fact that Adams was rushing at Button, the
other two officers held Sutton. Most of the wit
nesses thus far heard have- been officers or en
listed men.

NEW-YORK DXILT TRTBrVE. MONDAY.' JULY 26.' 1909. '_
STOKES'S EYE ON TOGA
Former Governor Out for Seat Held
by Senator Kean.
[From the Regular Correspondent of The Tribune.]
Sea Girt X. J.. July There is no longer any
doubt- among the Republican leaders of New Jersey
as to the ambitions and intentions of former Gov
ernor Edward C. Stokes, for one of the features of
the big political gathering here last week was the
beginning of an active campaign by the Cumber
land County statesman for the place In the United
States Senate now held by John Kean.
While the ex-Governor has long maintained that
his soY -ambition was to represent New Jersey in
the upper house of Congress, some of the oldtime
leaders who have a warm regard for Senator Kean
have felt that Mr. Stokes could be prevailed upon
to again become the Republican candidate for Gov
ernor, and they have even gone so far as to shape
their plans accordingly, hoping thereby to caFe a
situation which is likely to become extremely em
barrassing to them.
But the former Governor, so his friends say, hag
served notice on the leaders that he will have no
part in any such plan, and If the offer of the nom
ination for Governor Is made he will promptly re
fuse it. It is either United State 3 Senator or noth
ing, and there will be no let up in the active cam
paign begun last week until the Legislature of 1911
meets in joint session and chooses Senator Keson's
successor. Mr. Stokes's friends contend that hi*
services to the Republican party in New Jersey en
title him to a seat in the United States Senate,
which h- en me within one vote of getting when
General Sewell died.
The former Governor, however. !ihs no easy task
confronting him to prevent the re-election of Sena
tor Kean. who has let it be known that he desires
another term. Most of Mr. Kean'a time this year
has been taken up with the discussions of the new
tariff bill at Washington, but when that measure
finally reaches the President he will return home
ami at once begin to menfi his fences, which he
has a knack of doing in ■ convincing manner. Of
coarse, there Is a Legislature intervening between
the one which selects Senator Keans successor, but
it must be remembered thai every Senator elected
this year will have a vote for United States Sena
tor in 1911. and many of the Assemblymen elected
this fall will be re-elected next year.

WHIP TWO POLICEMEN
Take Their Revolvers from Them
and Kick Them Out.
[By Telegraph to Th« Tribuiwv]
Hackensack. N. J., July Patrolmen George
Burhamj and Charles Rosenfelder, of Rutherford,
were badly beaten and kicked Into the street after
I their revolvers had been taken from them this
morning when they went to Wood Ridge with a
warrant for the arrest of Leopold Savlello. who
wag charged with kidnapping his own seventeen-
I months-old baby and threatening his wife. At 1
I o'clock this morning Patrolman William Robinson
first made the attempt to arrest Saviello. He
I drove to the home In a buggy with Mrs. Saviello.
The policeman says he was threatened, and. upon
seeing a revolver, dldnt proceed further than the
front gate.
About noon Chief Holland, of Rutherford, sent
! the two above named policemen to accomplish what
Robinson had failed to do. Leopold. "Dan" and
Silvien Saviello were on the porch of their home
when the policemen, in civilian dress, walked into
the front garden. Rosenfelder. without showing
the warrant, placed his hand on Leopold's shoulder
and said. "You are under arrest." bilvlen Savlello
recognized the policemen, and demanded to know
their authority to arrest outside their own borough
limits. Blows were struck, and a scuffle followed.
Rosenfelder drew his revolver, but It was knocked
| out of his hand. One of the, brothers picked it up
and got the drop on Patrolman Burham Just as the
latter drew his weapon. "Throw up your hands
and drop that gun or 111 shoot," tald one of the
three brothers, and the policeman obeyed. Then
the policemen were punched and kicked Into the
street.
T.nt-> this afternoon Chief Holland telephoned to
Prosecutor Mackay and asked for county con
stables to go with his men to Woodridge to ar
rest Savlello and his brothers and to recover the
revolvers. Under Sheriff Walter Scott received the
# order and was getting op a list of deputies when
'silvlen Saviello walked Into his office and handed
the policemen's revolvers to the under sheriff. He
■aid his brothel was ready to be served with the
warrant by any legal constable and to furnish ball.
"My brother did rot kidnap his baby." continued
the caller. "His wife, who Is the daughter of John
H. Wlckware, a trade Journal editorial writer, of
Rutherford, has been visiting her parents for a week.
Leopold called last night, and when the baby was
given to him said he was going home. His mother
in-law objected to this, but Leopold took the baby
with him. It's another case of too much mother-in
law. It Is true we beat the policemen, but they
were too bandy with their guns and were out of
theii Jurisdiction."
MAY SETTLE STRIKE.
Only One Point Still at Issue at Me-
Kee's Rock*.
'Py Tel*Kraph to The Tribune. 1
Pittsburgh July 25.— The strike of employes of
the Pressed Steel Car Company at MeKee's Rocks
is said to be near a settlement to-night. It is re
porttvi that only the restoration of one hundred
men Is now debated between th* workmen an.l
President Hoffstott.
The head of the steel car company bad announced
that none of the six hundred strike leaden wou>
be taken back, but It is said he has lifted the baa
against five hundred Of them, but has asserted

Julius mussa, Austro-Hungnrlan consul here.
announced • .-day that he would establish a bureau
of Information at th.» works to consider griev
ances. It Is planned to have eight Interpreters 111
the l.ureau, one for each of the languages spoken
in the car factories. This would take from the
hands of under foremen the pow»r to graft from
the Ignorant foreigners— something that was mainly
Instrumental In the present strike, It is said. This
Is considered a victory for the worker*.
GREENWICH (rIFT HORSE.
Merchants Look Down Its Throat —
Mrs. Havemcyer's Offer.
[rty TslHlSllll to The Tribunal
Greenwich. Conn.. July 25— The proposed gift of
a small triangular strip 'of land by Mrs. H. O.
Havemeyeri widow of the sugar man. to be main
tained as ;: park by the borough of Greenwich, has
divided this village Into two warring factions. At
a meeting of the voters held Thursday evening,
which few attended, it was voted to accept the
gift. As soon, however, as the business men of
the town woke up to what had been done. a petition
remonstrating against the acceptance of the park
was started.
Mrs. Havemeyer some time ago offered a piece
of land la the southern part of the borougn to the
United States government us a site for a postofflce.
with the proviso that the bract adjoining should be
accepted by the board an a park The situation Is
remote from the town's business section and centre
of population, and the merchants complain that
they will lose customers If the postoiß « is put
there. Inasmuch as a refusal to accept the park
Will mean that the postofsce will n.it b« removed
to a remote place, the merchants and ithers will
make a strong fight for a reconsideration of the
question.

SUNK OFF FIRE ISLAND LIGHTSHIP.
The Kenosha Sprang ; Leak and Went Down,
but Crew Was Saved.
Boston, July ■.—The steamer Kenosha, bound
from Baltimore for Boston, laden with coal, sprang
a leak and sank six miles off Klre Island Lightship

rescued from the wrecked vessel The Kenosha
-«ank rapidly, and forced the men into the smail
boats, from which they were picked up by the
Howard.
It was about 1 o'clock Saturday morning that th»
Kenosha went down. The steamer had encountered
a southeast gale on Friday, which caused her to
labor heavily in the seas, and that Sveossg she. be
gan to leak badly from the strain. The n*Mr*gi
were kept K<>tng steadily from 9 p. m. Friday until
10 a. m. Saturday, when It was seen that the water
was still gaining, and It was decided to tike to the
boats.
One hour and a half later the Kenosha went
down, and Captain Anderson and the crew, who had
stood by meanwhile, then rowed to ' Fire Island
Lightship, where they remained for three hours,
until the steamship Howard, of the Merchants and
Miners' Line, came along and took them on board.
Captain Anderson and most of the crew of the
Kenosha reside In the vicinity of Boston. *
The Kenosha was a wood* vessel and was owned
by the Chesbrough Steamship Company. She was
valued at $30,000, and her cargo' of coal at $7,000.

Yanders. the same age. cf No. 1830 Dean street,
were both shot by small calibre rifles in the hands
of their friends. The Wylle boy was sent to St.
Mary's Hospital, in Brooklyn, where he was placed
on the operating table and the surgeons probed
for the bullet in his side. Young Yanders was In
jured only slightly by a shot In the leg.
The two boys, with five other friends, went to
the Paardegat woods. Flatbush, where they shot
at birds and squirrels. They had two rifles, and
on their return one of the boys, Ray Leonard, who
was In the lead, turned around to speak. At the
same moment one of the rifles was discharged and
the bullet entered Wylle's side.
- He dropped to the ground crying "I'm shot!"
Leonard then turned the guns over to Allen Nor
ton, and as he did so the second gun was dis
charged, wounding Yanders In the leg. The Wylle
boy was carried to the hospital, while the Yanders
boy went home. > '; r ■ >
