GRAND JURY TO
PROBE THAW CASE
Continued From First Page.
Harry Thaw was far more of a factor
in driving the young Pittsburger to
the -use o a. pistol than what had been
said-by White about Mrs, .Thaw, It
can be ascertained by the efficient :eyi
The condl- [jdence-seekers of the district attorney's
office that Thaw's desperation was
caused by the rer/orts constantly:
brought to him of ^remarks iade by*
Stanford White in the. cafes and res
taurants of Broadway and Fifth ave

Thaw as husband and man.

lawsuit could be averted in no other

brought pr threatened by Evelyn Nes

were fighting for the possession of her
affection* ana that White was the vic
tor to an extent that made it possible
for him. to dictate the wording of the
document.- It is also asserted .that this
document passed into* ihe possession of
White, and' that th^atnWas .one of 'the
several causes tha# incited the young
Pittsburger to the frenzy that resulted
in Stanford White's death.
Another Reason.
Another report says that at the Cafe
Martin last Monday evening Stanford
White remarked, in", the presence of
two men, one a cafe attache "There's

the mind of Harry Kendall Thaw. A
more vile stigma was never cast upon
a woman, and the defense will argue
that the words could only have ema

Mr. Olcott believes^that the trial of
Thaw will not be called before Sep
tember. This would give both sides
ample time to prepare their cases, and
trial could be disposed of with greater
sp&ed"than if begun at an earlier date.
MRS, THAW TELLS ALL
Gives Husband's Lawyers Full Story
of Her Life.
Journal Special Service.
New York, June 30.While Harry K.
Thaw was standing at the bar in Judge
Cowing's court yesterday pleading
not guilty to the* charge of murder
"fn the first'degree, his wife sat in the
office of ex-Judge William Olcott,
senior counsel for Thaw, and^there told
the story of her relations with Stan
ford White, from the first meeting to
his death on the Madison Square Gar
den.
Her husband's lawyer had insisted
that nothing be omitted from her story,
because, he pointed -out, the whole
truth, no matter how unpleasant it
might be in the telling, must be known
to counsel so that they may meet
every issue when the young woman is
called to the witness stand at her hus
band's ifrial.
Wheni-
Mrs Thaw finished her long
tale she had 'been talking four hours.
Three stenographers had been Ttept
busy taking dictation, so that the
tianscript (could made with greater
speed. There were nearly ninety type
written pages of what may ."be sailed'
"Evelyn Nesbit Thaw's life story."
It is known, however, that in her
statement Mrs. Thaw told- how Stanford
White first met her and ,how treated
her the first-time he ^ook her to his^
studio in the tower' of the Madison
Square Garden. She told of the many
letters White-had -addressed^to her, and
incorporated in the story is her rela-.
tion of experiences with White on the
^sfeage, 'a*idjst,of her. firsts meeting withx

PLEASEPASSTHE BUTTER.
The great American trust is reaching out now for
vthe
to go on the witness stand and testify
in favor of Thaw. These young women,
some of them known to Mrs. Thaw,
others strangers, have told Thaw's
counsel that they will swear that White
attempted to assault them and,that he
was no better than a kidnapper of
yonnfc and innocent grirla.
Several of these young-'wotnew hftVB
visited the office of Black, Olcott,
Gruber & Bonynge, where their affida
vits have been taken. Other girls have
met Mrs. Thaw in her hotel and have
told her .what they know about "White
and his studio in,the tower. Mrs. TKaw
was present while some of tfieyounR
women were. giving their statements
to Mr. McManus
It was in this way that Judfi^QJcott
and Mr. McManus learned tSaf-'mr.
White had more than one studio. Some
of the "girls told of orgies in a studio
in Twenty-fourth street, near Sixth
avenue: others told of haWeniotfrS at
the White studio-in West ,Twe'nt^|*c-

street. The architect used an
alias in these places, the girls swear.
All the statements will be investigated.
Assistant District Attorney, Garvan
was not surprised when he learned last
nigrht 6 these new developments, but
insisted, despite these, that White had
been shot down in cold blood and that
Thaw was guilty of murder in the first
degree. y..

James Lawrence Breese was absent
from the Brbblt and Metropolitan cltibs,
and it was said that he had left New
York for an indefinite stay. It .was
rumored that a process server has been
seeking Mr. Breese since Tuesday.
Eobert Eeid, the mural painter and
close friend of ]\r. White, was the ex

in Gramercy. park and would not* say
whethei: or not he had been subpefiaed.
He said:
I am sure that the only way is to

are Untrue. I may as well say that
there is a hysteria about fabricating
stories that are as: vile as they are

Thaw Admires Swinburne
Journal Speoial Service.
New York, June 30.Harry Kendall
Thaw, altho it is not generally known,
except among his intimate friends, has
long been an ardent student of Alger

poet who sings of the exaltation of spir

Thaw, on many occasions, has been
heard to quote Swinburne, knows,
him not only as a student and ah ad

to the. rapture of the poet has always
been a source of wonderment to liis

boy was knocked down and the wheels
passed over his back and shoulder. He
was carried to a nearby drug store and
later to his home, 2327 James avenue N.
After striking the boy the machine

The. uppermost question now is how
long the present deadlock between par
liament and the government can con
tinue. Premier Goremykin is no longer
a factor in the situation, but some of
his colleagues, headed by Minister of
Agriculture Stichinsky, realizing that,
unless the government fights, the cab
inet must fall, are earnestly advising
the emperor to take the bull by the
horns and dissolve parliament. They
have submitted a memorandum to the
emperor, advising .him to take this
course on the. ground that parliament
has ceased to be a legislative body and
is simply the center of revolutionary
agitation and urging that immediate
action is necessary. They contended
that the army as a whole can still be
relied upon.
Mistake Would Be Fatal
Finance Minister Kokovzoiff and Min
ister of Justice Chicheglovitoff, on the
other hand, consider that an attempt to
forcibly dissolve parliament would be
fatal. The former, who is ambitious to
become premier, seems'to be champion
ing the formation of a mixed responsi
ble ministry in the hope that .the
em-orates
peior will charge him to. undertake its
formation. In the meantime it is an

What Is a Tonic?
A tonic Is a medicine that increases
the appetite, increases the digestion, In
creases the power of the system to as
similate and appropriate food.
This is the action of all true tonics.
To be sure, there are tonics that are
simply stimulants. Tiwjr irritate ttoe
stomach, and an unnatural craving: for
food is excited. This class of medicines
should be classed as stimulants rather
than tonics.
A tonic, as above stated, quickens aU
the functions of digestion. It invig
the body by furnishing more force
for the body.
The action of true tonics 1s not tem
porary, hut lasting.
The lassitude, which warm weather
brings is due to an under-supply of
nutrition for the body. Plenty of food
may be on the table, but the food is not
relished, or else is "not digested.
Silent catstrrtial derangemoita of tha
stomach and bowels will so effectually
interfere with digestion as to produce
great depression of the system.

surface for irrigation purposes. This land can now be
purchased i small tracts lor $15 $25 per acre. ^Fanners
now located in this country are realizing from thil
land $400 to $700 per acre each year. Onions, cabbages,
peas, beans, carrots, beets, water melons, cotton, alfalfa
and sugar cane grow in abundance. It seems impossible,
doesn't it, that you can obtain land at $25 per acre that
will realize $500 in one year? You can now, but you
won't be able to do this twelve months from now. You
see this land is in large tracts. The owners have
millions of acres. If they sell some portion of this land and
get it under cultivation, it will increase the value of the
remainder. That's the whole secret. Again, the railroad
company must have people in that section to pay its oper
ating expenses.
It will be our purpose to give actual examples In thb
paper every Tuesday and Saturday, of what is being dont
in this marvelous country. These examples will be actual
facts. They will give the name of the farmer and his
address. We will state what is grown and the amountj
money this farmer is making. You want to be convinced
that these enormous profits can be made. Correspondence
with these farmers will be invited and they will certify to
you direct what can be done.
