Investigating graft in the police department of New York, produced an unexpected situation to-day when Police Commissioner Rhlnelander Waldo, on the witness stand, announced that he neither claims any privileges nor waives Immunity, as a result of his testimony before the. committee. The head of the police department obviously was angry. "I do not claim anything," he shouted In response to a question by Counsel Buckner, as to whether the commission er waived or expected Immunity as a re stilt of his testlmonj, "I do not claim any privileges, nor waive any immun ity," he concluded. "And I consider the asking of such a question a gratuitous insult to me by the committee." Mr. Buckner acknowledged that no In sult was intended, but that the question was merely the usual form. The inquisi tor insisted on a direct reply, but he r.ever "rot it, and the examination moved on to special matters in connection with the police matters. "Waldo admitted that te had the affidavit of a police captain who had been approached by politicians with the offer to make him an Inspector at a price of J15.000, but the commission er added that this man was under the old regime.

While the colonel avoided alluding to Smoot by name, he made himself so sufficiently explicit that his meaning was not missed.

Gibson bent his keen intellect here to-day In the first clash of his fcelf-conducted battle for freedom of the charge of killing Rosa Menachik Szabo. j Gibson won. He Pre vailed upon District Attorney Rogers to request postponement of the hearing until September 21. and then Induced Judge Royce to overrule himself and con sent to that arrangement. It Is Gibson's purpose, apparently, to act as his own chief counsel Unshaken by his night in the Mlddletown Jail, he appeared In the Recorder's Court this morning and conducted his own case with the ease and skill of a lawyer hav ing only a professional interest In the proceedings under way. Gibson realizes that It Is a charge of strangulation that he must face, and he has resolutely set himself to the task of disproving this. One of his first moves will be to have the body of Mrs. Szabo exhumed once more in order that pny slclans of his own choosing may make a minute examination. Telephones to Wife. His latest request of Judge Rojce to day was that he be permitted to com municate by telephone with his relatives and friends, and the request was readllv granted The conversation which ensued between him and Mrs. Gibson at the other end of the wire showed that he means to sell bis life dearly to the State It the final toll must be paid.

Oh, I deeply regret now that I was not represented at the autopsy. I wish I had Dr. O'Hanlpn there to repre sent me." Dr. O'Hanlcp, Is a re-oner's physician of skill and exjerlenee who has had oc casion to differ on many occasions with the views of Dr. Schultze. who made the autopsy on Mrs. Szabo. The precise nature of Dr. -Schultze's charge was made public to-day in an affidavit form, as was also the long affidavit made by Deputy Sheriff De- Graw, on which the warrant was issued. Both contain damaging statements against Gibson. Damaging Statements Made. Two or three paragraphs in the De- Graw affidavit stand out. On the day after Mrs. Szabo was killed, De Graw met Gibson. The affidavit continues- 'I said. Why did lou leave the lake last night immediately after the drown ing when ou knew the woman's body bad not been recovered?' "He said he was so exhausted from the Immersion In the water that he "went home as quick as he could, as he desired to notify some of the woman's relatives. I asked him what he was doing with her up there and he said that he and the woman's husband had been In business together and that he had always looked after her affairs as her counsel and that he was infatuated with her." It is the peculiarity of Gibson's words and acts immediately following the death of lira. Szabo which have built up the case against him. lit his statement of last night, the accued lawver stated that the Rosa Rltter who was drowned while boating with him was not the Rosa Szabo whose mother died two jears ago in Vienna, and whose brother is now in mldocean bound for New York To-day, Gibson seeks to recast that statement. Chanites Statement. "I never said." he asserts, "that the woman who vas drowned was not Mrs, Szabo, of Vienna. When I said last night that the woman In the boat with me was Mrs. Rltter I did not mean a 'person other than Mrs. Szabo Mrs. Rltter." he continued, "was the Viennese Mrs. Szabo rll concede that much to the prosecu tion." And then he added, "but if she was the Viennese Mrs. Szabo, her mother is still livingeand in New York I know where she is." The pecise attitude of his mind is difficult to get at.

Gen. Count Xogi was the son of Maretsu Nogi, chief of the Samurai of Hagi, Pnnince of Chosu. To him his father's sword had de scended, and with this ancient blade he slew himself. It will be buried with him, and he will re cede honors scarcely less imposing than those accorded to Emperor Mutsuhito. Nogi followed prece dent as old as the sacred mountain of Fuii-Yo-Yamo. for it has alwavs been prompted by the spirit of "Bushido" that a man shall lay down his life for his Emperor, een if only to show fealty to him by a sacrifice. Nogi's generation was that which saw the passing of the Samurai, but of the Samurai was Nogi, and with them he saw fit to pass himself bevond the portals of life.

He commanded the first brigade of infantry in the China-Japanese war. and at all times distinguished himself by a bravery and a military skill which endeared him alike to Em peror and people. He was probably the most InUmate friend of EmDeror Mut suhlto, outside the royal family, and his word of advice In army matters was practically law. The military career of this foremost of Oriental soldiers began in the Salgo re bellion, where he won the battles of Yamagauchl and Tawarazaka. receiving serious wounds In the latter engagement. For his efficiency In these batUes, Nogi was made a lieutenant colonel, and. thereafter, his rise was rapid. The count was sixty-three jears old and his wife only a few years his Junior. The news of the death of the beloved couple spread almost as" rapidly as the news of the death of the Emperor a month ago, and within an hour after the suicide, the farthest parts of the em pire were In mourning for Nogi's passing away.
