QUARRELING DRUNKARD,
Gossip of Castle Gould Continues
to Occupy Attention of New
York Court.
EMBARRASSING ORDEAL FOR WOMAN
Long Island Rustics and Former Men
I
ial Employes Tell of All Kinds of
Disgusting Incidents Which Are Al?
leged to Have Made Howard Gould
Leave Home.
(By Associated Press.)
NKW YORK. June 1??Howard
Gould did not go on the stand today
to testify against his w.fo, Kathcrinc
C'lemuions Gould, wlnosc suit lor sep?
aration he is op|K\s,iiLC, instead there
was a confusion ot t? rvants, ssip,
a<s-ounts by menials" of thtir former
mistress's BCtwjMricitaBSj, humllating
details of Mrs. Goulds alb-god fond?
ness for alci holic iM-vorages, and her
manner at such times wheu what Hi"
witness said was inflm nee of liquor
brought from her lips remarks that
are ill suited to a woman's tongue.
Indications are that the 'Plaintiff
miifi endure for another day, possibly
for two, the embarrassing ordeal of
listening to the testimony of former
s<rvants. all of whom have been ca||eo
at the instance of bet husband to su?
taiii. if possible, his contention that,
living with is wife was impracti' able
and decidedly unpleasant, hence Unit
the charge of abandonment, the main?
stay of Mrs. Gould's case, is not borne
out.
Amplification of First Stories.
?What Katberine Clemmons Gould
heard today was but a reiteration,
and in some resi?ects en amplification
of yesterday's testimony, the basis of
which was that al various and divers
times at the vaBt L>ng Island show
place, Castle Gould, she; had, accord?
ing to the witnesses been intoxicated,
had abused menials, given arb trary
end unreasonable i-omniands to the
sen-ants, ami had used rather severe
language in altercations with her hus?
band.
An occasion when she would have
fallen from her carriage t>ut for the
protecting arm of a coachman, an at?
tempt of hers to drive through a
closed pate, a lime when a footman
saved her from falling when intoxi?
cated, as testified, were among the
toings alleged as a Long Island rus?
tic or a former-servant went on and
paswd from the witness stand.
Swore at and Abused Him.
A carpenter Herbert Trotter, was
the last of the day's witnesses. He
said that when he was working in the
servants' quarters, Mrs. Gould rusheu
in time at one time, swore al and:
ahused the servants.
"Her voice was shaky and incoher-!
cnt, h?r hair disheveled and she was!
very profane. She was di'cidedly
drunk,' sad the witness.
"At another time she came into the
the stables while | was working there
and sw. re at ih< grooms, and was so
drunk that everyone could tell she was
drunk." he continued.
"She tried to go up stairs to the,
harti'.ss room, but <onld not navigate
the atefs.'' he added, emphatically.
Trotter said he was ordered to go to
hiue Gap farm, the Gould place in Vir?
ginia.
On sev- ral ocean.ons during rhe tlr?;
ten days be ?ras He re he tcyfjfird
fee saw her in?"xiceted and heard n< r
swe?r a great aVal at the workmen.
Wrestled With Big Clock,
one night she cam' in from driv?

Trotter tet.tifled thai Mrs G-nld was

"Unit you recall that Mrs. Gould

"I certainly do not."
'?She was taken sick and fell to the
floor directly after she had been out?

"No. it was two hours before ?ho

Curing the cross-* xamination Mrs.

TARIFF SCHEDULE PUT
IN SHADE BY MESSAGE
President's Supstion as to Taxes
on Incomes and Corporations'
Earnings Received by Senate.
REFERRED TO FINANCE COMMITTEE
Party Lines Strictly Drawn in Vote
Upon Senator Gore's Motion to Di?
rect Report Friday. Republicans Vot?
ing to Lay on Table?Philippine
Schedule Adopted.
(n-.- Associated Press.)
WASHINGTON, I? C. Line 1? ?
Th-- message at president Taft
recommending the Incorporation of
n provision in the tariff bill for
the taxation of the earnings
of corporations anil the adoption
of a resolution looking to an amend?
ment of the constitution so as to per?
mit the levying of an Income lax with
i nt Interference from the courts,
which was received by the Senate to?
day was generally regarded by Sena?
tors as of such transcendent Impor?
tance as to place in the shade all
questions pertaining strictly to the
schedules nf the tariff bill
The niensage was received early in
the afternoon and after brief discus
sion on the method < f proceeding was
referred to Ibe ? awalttee on finance.
Son-itor Roof occupied Ifen) chair
when one of I he President's secre?
taries appeared with the message in
hand, bnl owing lo the fact that
Senator Horton was nt the time en?
gaged in making a speech the presen?
tation of the message was delayed for
some time. When Mr. Iturton con?
cluded, but not until after Mr. Hey
burn bad addressed the chair to pro?
ceed with the discussion of the tart.T
bill, the message was read.
Full Senate Present.
There was a full senate present and
the document was awarded the most
careful attention from all senators.
S. nator Gore attempted to have the
committee instructed to report on the
income tax feature of the message by
next Friday when, under general
.?igreemenl. the income tax question is
again to be taken up for considera
tton. His motion was. however, voted
down, and for the first time In many
weeks the division was strictly along
party lines, all the Republicans voting
against that pro|>ositinn.
During the informal discussion of
the reference of the message Sena?
tor Itailey gave notice that he would
demand that provision be made for a
graduation of any Income tax that
might be provided for and intimated
that much time would be necessary
to get through a provision which did
not carry that qualifieation.
Philippine Products.
After considerable debate the Sen?
ate adopted the finance committee's
recommendation regarding the admis?
sion of Philippine products, but not
until after two amendments had been
voted down.
Senator Foster, of Louisiana, occu?
pied the early hours of the day with
a s|?eech eu|K>sing the free admission
of any Philippine sugar into the t"nit
ed states. He look the |<osition that
<vith the enrouragement that would tie
given by allowing 5ftn.nc.n fop* of Phil?
ippine product to come in free of duty,
the production in the islands would be
so rapidly increased thai it would
soon exceed the quantity named
