"If the crime of murder'was committed by Dr. Hau, the only reason that can be assigned is that he suddenly became in sane.

No word, either directly or Indirectly, has been received In Washington from Dr. Hau, and the belief expressed is that feeling him-' self entirely innocent he does not choose to dignify the murder charge by giving It no tice In a cablegram 10 nia menus ana asso ciates In the capital. The report that Mrs. Hau. In the Hotel Cecil, London, has denied herself to all callers, and that she even refuses tQ receive messages, is taken as explaining her failure to answer two cable grams sent to her since the first account of her husband's arrest reached this coun try. Speaking of Professor Hau's connection with the faculty of George Washington University today, Mr. Charles Needh&m, president of that Institution, declared that he had always found Hau to he straight forward in dealings with his fellow-man. ' "Wo wua m man nf anlendfri attainments." | said Dr. Needham, "and, while he never spoke of his personal affairs, he gave every evidence of being possessed of independent means, because one of his first acts upon being appointed an instructor in the uni versity was to turn over his salary as in structor in Roman law to the institution to pay fcr two scholarships." tw VocHh-jm hnu ?nartmpnta at the Hiarh lands, where Dr. Hau also resided while In this city, and he declared that Dr. Hau and Mrs. Hau Rave every "Indication of happy home relations, notwithstanding ru mors to the contrary.

Mrs. Newman yes terday afternoon asked him for the room rent for the week, as had been her cus tom, and he told her he had no money, but that he expected he would receive a check t?day. Mrs. Newman said that her roomer had received letters from Pittsburg addressed to him as Leopold Lammfromm. His name was changed to Fisher, the police think, after he started for this city. The change, the police believe, was made after he had considered the question of taking his life. Detective O'Brien made an Investigation of the man's death after the police of the eighth precinct had been at the house, and took charge of his cfTecta Coroner Nevitt was informed of the cir cumstances under which Lammfromm or Fisher had taken his life, and he deemed an InnilPKt nnnprpsajirv The Hnri v wn?

A general investigation or what Is known Harrlman system of railroads, under the authority conferred by law, is one of the subjects that has been discussed by the Interstate commerce commission. Because of the pressure of work now before the commission, and the great amount of labor and time Involved fn such an undertaking, the matter has thus far been considered only In an informal and tentative way and no final decision has been reached as to when the proposed inquiry shall begin or the methods to be followed In securing the Information desired. The propriety of an investigation of the system has be$n talked of by the members of. tile commission for some time, and that body. It Is said, really stands committed to an Inquiry. "We have been informed," a member of the commission said last night, "that this system in some of its features Is not unlike the Northern Securities Company, which was dissolved through the interposition of the Attorney General of tke United States." Any steps which may be taken by the commission along the lines referred to will be. it is said. In accordance With the gen eral powers of the commission conferred by law, and not because of any Immediate spe cific complaint of a violation of the statutes. In January, If time permits, the commission will take up the complaint of the municipal ity of Spokane against the Northern Pacific, the Great Northern, the Chicago, Burling ton and Qulncy, the Union Pacific and the Oregon Short Ulnes railroads, involving al leged discriminations In charging a higher rate for a shorter than for a longer haul. This complaint was the first filed with the commission under the amended interstate commerce act. It is regarded as of consid erable importance, as its disposition will logically have a bearing on the whole ques tion of transportation in the west from the Canadian border to Mexico and Chicago and St. Louis to the Pacific coast. It is also of importance with the proposeu investiga tion of the Harriman system, whose terri tory and connecting lines cover a large por tion of the west. Fines Imposed on Barbers. Three charges of violations of the new regulation governing barber shops were presented to Judge Kimball In the Police Court today. George T. Kussmaul, 1410 H street northeast, and James L. Johnson, 46 Pierce street northwest, were each fined StO. and Harrison Edlln, 1004 4th street north west, was fined $5. In the latter case the testimony showed that Edlin had tried to get a plumber to install hot and cold water, but that the plumbers were so busy they coulfi not do the work. Health office Inspectors are making a thorough investigation of all the barber shops in the city, aad whenever the new regulations are not carried out to the let ter In regard to-hot and cold water and the sterilisation of Instruments and the gen eral cleanliness of shops warrants are procured.
