DRASTIC ANTI-MERCER MEASURE FAILS TO PASS BAY STATE SENATE AMENDS BILL ADOPTED BY THE HOUSE. Legislature Adjourns and Legislation Fails to Become Law Bill Directed Against the Control of Trolley Lines in the State by The New York, New Haven and Hartford Gov. Guild's Pet Measure. Boston, June 29. The 1906 session of the Massachuetts legislature, wa3 pro rogued at 11-45 o'clock to-night. The chief interest of the closing hours of the session centered about the anti street railway merger bill, which now fails to become a law, recommended by Governor Curtis Guild, Jr. in a speclall message to the general court and em bodied in a bill presented to the legis lature by speaker Cole of the house of representative. The billlntroducedby the speaker and which is understood to have been the result of a conference between the governor, the speaker and Attorney General Dana Malone, was framed on the ground that railroad corporations operating in Massachuestts particularly the New York, New Haven & Hartford railroad corporation, were Illegally con trolling Massachusetts street railway properties and was designed to prevent such holdings. The Cole bill also ex pressly prohibited railway corporations from holding or controllng the stocks or bonds of any Massachusetts street railway company, and further directed that by December 1907, the railroad corporations holdine such stocks and honds should dispose of the securities. The Cole bill was passed by the house and sent to the senate to-day for con current action. The senate, however, refused to pass the bill and mended It so that it read the same as the report of the Joint committee or. street rail ways and railroads. The committee report directed that the attorney gen- eral of the state bring action In the supreme court of the state to determine if the .control by the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad of Massachusetts street railway proper ties was legal or Illegal, and further provided that the railroad corporation should not acquire additional street railway properties until the supreme court had rendered a decision.

His Plea of Not Guilty Counsel Had Expected to Enter It for Him De tectives for Both Sides Probing Every, Possible Avenue Leading to Light on the Motive of the Tragedy Startling Disclosures Likely of Conditions in So-Called Bohemian Under-World of the Metropolis. New York, June 29. "Not guilty," was the plea personally made by Har ry Kendall Thaw when arraigned to day on the charge of murder before Justice Cowing in the supreme court. So promptly was the prisoner's re sponse to the usual question by the court clerk of what he had to say to the Indictment just read, that his coun sel, who expected to reply for him, were for the moment startled. Then they Immediately interposed an amend ment to the plea, asking the permission of the court to withdraw it at any time up to next Tuesday. This permission was granted and the prisoner was led way from 4he bar and taken back to his cell in the Tombs. These proceea- Ings lasted but a few moments, during which the prisoner appeared to be cool and collected. While waiting nis turn for arraignment, several prisoners pre ceding him at the bar, he stood in a window recess chatting wuu m cer in charge. After Thaw had been remanded to the Tombs Assistant Dis trict Attorney Nott, in response w . question, "What is mere in u Si"It Is simply a question of whether n York has Kone down to the level of the mining camp or whether a man has got some chance lor ms mo m,a Hmi of Thaw's counsel m re questing leave to amend the plea of not guilty has been taken as Indies Hon that the final line of defence has not been fully determined on al though It Is still considered pruuu. that a plea of temporary in. be offered.

Mrs. Thaw held a long conrerence with her husband's attorneys to-aay during which she is said to have relat ed at lensrth her whole life history, es- neolftllv that portion pertaining to her acquaintance with wnite prior 10 ner marriage. 1 As a result of this conference It was decided that former Governor Frank S. Black will take a leading part in the defense. . Mrs. Thaw did not visit her husband in the Tombs to-day. The investigation vv Thaw's counsel Into the career of Stanford White and the John Doe pro ceedings instituted by the district at torney's office and designed to probe every possible avenue that may throw any light on the motive of the tragedy, promise to result in some startling dis closures of the so-called Bohemian un der-world of the Metropolis. Scores of detectives are now delving in this un der world in behalf of the prosecution and defense and fresh discoveries bear ing more or less directly on the tragedy are of almost hourly occurrence. Among the many witnesses examined at the district attorney's office to-day were Thomas McCaleb, a Californian, who was with the Thaws at dinner in the Cafe Martin on the evening of the tragedy and Truxtun Beale, who was with Mr. White and his party In the restaurant at the same time. Assist. ant District Attorney Garvan stated at the conclusion of McCaleb's examina tion that McCaleb had accompanied Mrs. Thaw from the Garde nafter the shooting and had escorted him to the house of one of her friends. He also said that McCaleb had made a very complete statement of everything he had observed during the dinner and afterwards on the roof of the Garden when White was shot. A witness was found to-day by Coun aei for Thaw, whose testimony will, they say, be of the utmost Importance to the defense. This man, whose name Is withheld, is said to be an old friend of Thaw and will testify that-he talk ed on Monday night on the Garden roof with Thaw, who appeared to be quite normal In his demeanor and entirely at his ease. Suddenly, according to this informant, Thaw turned pale, his eyes glared and turning suddenly away he walked towards where White was seated and the shooting followed al most immediately. Thaw's counsel consider this testimo ny as of the utmost importance as In dicating that Thaw did not go to the raof In the quest of White and that it was only fhen his eyes lighted sud denly on the man who he believed had wronged him. that his passion for ven seance blazed out, DEMANDS ON CASTRO United States Will Press Them When He Resumes Presidency.
