Asto Whether Thaw Threat
ened toKill His Wile
She Had Had No Money
From Her Husband Late
ly and Couldn't Afford to
Hire a Lawyer to Keep
Her Out of Jail.
White Plains. July 13. Evelyn Xes
bit Thaw's entrance into the court
room today created commotion. She
was dressed in a blue suit and large
hat with gray plumes. The district
attorney . asked the witness about a
conversation she had with her hus
band at Matteawan soon after be
was committed. ,
"Did Harry make a threat during
the conversation that he would kill
you?" asked Sir. Clark. Thaw's coun
sel objected, but Justice Mills ruled
that the witness must answer. "I
can't afford contempt proceedings now
and rriuit obey," said Evelyn turn
ing to Justice Mills.
"Did you have any conversation
with Thaw regarding, your affairs."
"We had a talk in regard to a
certain thing."
"Had Thaw asked you to do some
thing for him 'that day?"
"No." '
Lawyer" -Morschauser again ob
jected,, saying that the conversation
was confidential. .
"But.", said . Clark, . "the conversa
tion was a threat to kill."
Turning to Mrs.' Thaw, Clark ask
ed if the conversation was in regard
to something that happened just be
fore the .shooting of Stanford White.
The witness said it was. .
"During that conversation did
Thaw say words to this effect to
you: "When I get out of here, I
will have to kill youT " Thaw's
counsel-ohjected. "
Justice Mills ruled that the con
versation between Thaw and his
wife, at that .time ,was confidential
and need not be repeated. Attorney
Winslow argued that the ronversa
tion was material as bearing upon
the sanity or insanity of Thaw.
' Was the subject of the conversa
tion partly in regard to the killing
f Stanford White?" asked Clark.
The witness said it was. Clark had
Mrs. Thaw Identify some papers
written by her husband. At one time
Mrs. Tfiaw turned to Justice Mills
and said: "Will I be in contempt
if I do not answer? I cannot afford
to go to jail and as my husband is
not now paying anything to me I
have not money enough to hire coun
sel." Thaw watched his wife intently-
Mrs. Thaw appeared m-.-re mature
and seemed loss like the demure
school girl whose expression accen
tuated her beauty as it did. when she
wore an eton collar and she testified
at her husband's trials in New York.
Though called by the state in an
endeavor to prove that Harry Thaw
Is irrational, what the deputy attor
ney general drew from her today
created a favorable Impression . (or
her husband. She will testify again
tomorrow. L'pon the outcome of
Evelyn's testimony, the state's fight
will largely rest.
A favorable bit of testimony for
Thaw today was that of Frank
Toomey, his bodyguard, at Mattea
wan. He said that Thaw exhibited
no irrational tendency. He admitted
that Thaw . criticised the -management
of the institution and used
harsh names . in referring to some of
the physicians, but he added that
many .of the suggestions made by
Thaw had been acted upon and great
ly improved the institution.
The state's representatives announc
ed that they had retained Dr. Austin
Flint and Dr. Charles B. Macdonald,
who with Dr. Amos B. Baker, of Mat
teawan, will make up the sttte's
trio of alienists alongthe lines agreed
upon by - counsel yesterday. The
alienists aro to be permitted to make
a physical examination of Thaw in
White Plains Jail. The mental exam
ination to test his . sanity is to be
conducted In open court; the lawyers
to be prompted by the experts.

The Charge of Murder Against Him
Los Angeles, July IX J. H. Allen.
fArizona Jack), charged with the
murder of Deputy Constable Charles
Demoranville of Newhall on the night
of January 6, in regard to whose case
one jury had disagreed, was '. dis
charged in Judge Davis' court. The
case was dismissed on the motion of
District Attorney Fredericks. That
officer stated that br reason of the
fact that it was impossible to prove
J jst who Tired tuT ffrst shot and that
Allen and DeraoranVille had been
good friends, thus furnishing no mo,
t:ve for the killing, and further that
It would be impossible to secure ad
ditional evidence against Allen at V
ssoond hearing, he thought best to
dismiss the complaint. ,
"Arizona Jack" was therefore ord
ered released and the man who' had
proved his handiness with a gun on
more than one occasion, walked oQt

Two Unsuccessful Attempts to Man

Washington, TJ. C. July 11 OrvlUe
Wright was unsuccessful in two at
tempts to maneuver his aeroplane at

to make a turn at the 'end '.of.' toe

Successful Production of
Sugar Beet Seed
'i i-t ri'
Further Experiments s Are
Necessary But Investiga-
tion: to Date Decidedly
Flattering Tests of La
fayette Myer.
J If ' the experiments of Lafayette
Myers, agriculturist of the South
western Sugar and Land company,
continue to result as successfully as
they have this year, and there is
every reason to expect they will, tha
coming or the sugar people Into this
section, . it is now apparent, means
a great ; deal more for the Salt river
valley than anybody, even" the sugar
people themselves, ever 'anticipated.
It not only means all that the suc
cessful operation of a sugar factory
means, which is a 1 300 value to sugar
beet lands, but it means, an added
seed by-product to the beet crop, of
approximately $100 per acre. And
that means a doubling of the value
of all choice sugar beet land ' to ap
proximately $1,000 per acre. This is
not written for "boom" literature,
but is f trictly a news . story, for it
deals with facts not made public
until yesterday, but it ought to stiffen
the market for sugar beet lands
nevertheless. ''-.'"'
Up -to this good hour .the' raising
of sugar beet seed has not been suc
cessfully . accomplished in America,
though the beets for sugar grow in
manj places as well as anywhere on
earth. Practically every pound of
sugar beet seed planted in America,
and there is annually a . million
pounds of' it used, comes from a
limited area in Germany, where the
raising of it is made a specialty.- Its
cost is about ten cents a pound, or
$100,000 for a season's' planting of
tha American fields. Phoenix may
well hope after two or three years of
experiment, to pick this plum from
Germany and the best part of it is
that it will be an inexpensive by
product, almost clear profit, tha seed
product being just that much added
revenue to the sugar crop of each
ap re. It is almost too good to be
true, but the present indications are
that it is true and General Manager
Davis last night was wearing a
smile that almost equaled the one
acquired by the successful working
of the factory during its first week.
A lengthy article in this paper
some months ago, an interview with
an importer of best seed, told' the
reasons why the seed has never been
successfully matured in this country,
or if so It lacked in germination.
There was also recited how the in
dustry had been specialized by Ger
man scientists, how results had been
secured and how failure had resulted
in this country. Those things aQ;
proved facts and need not be repeat
ed at this time, more than to state
that in Germany where seed is raised
the beets produce no sugar and it
takes two years to raise the seed
Selected seed only is planted and the
beets grown are then selected, kept
over winter in a silo and pUnted in
the spring as are seed onions. f In
maturing the seed crop the tieet rots
away, or at least loses its sugar
content, so the only product is the
seed and that comes once in two
years. ,
From the experiments of Mr. Myer
there is now reason to hope that
seed planted in this valley tn No
vember or earlier, will produce ma
ture and perfect' seed the following
summer, with a wasting of only from
one-half to one per cent of saccharine
matter, so . the skilled farmer may
raise a crop of seed and a crop of
sugar each year, "on the same vine.'.'
so to speak. It is estimated that
beets will produce in the neighbor
hood of a ton to the acre, which at
10c a pound' means $100 per acre
added income for the slight expense
of a little more careful attention and
the harvesting of the crop. ' It
means the adding to the valley beet
growers crop each year a revenue
equal to a two years' crop of the
German seed growers.
The discovery was in the first
place practically thrust upon Mr.
Myer. The Arizona soil felt that the
psychological moment had come to
make another star play and it made
"Mr Myer planted a considerable
acreage last November, having in
mind only the securing of beets for
the early beginning of the sugar
campaign Ihis year, and to encourage
the farmers to early planting. When
the November beets began to attain
a fair size, with one accord they be
Ln to shoot up the seed stalks.
Mr Myer and Mr. Davis were de
pressed. They didn't wart seed.
What they wanted was beets, and
they were embarrassed to see the
determination of the beets to run to
seed They did not conceive that
the seed would be worth anything end
.i.-.. rr-A that if they were allowed
to go to seed they would deteriorate
.very .much In saccharine matter, or
even be ruined Jor sugar, as are the
seed growing beets in the old conn
try. That they feared would give a
black eye' isf thev industry of sugar
making, so they began breaking off
the seed stalks ' from most of the
fields, determined to. restrain the beets
by brute ' force If ' they couldn't do
it by - prayer; - So persistent were the
beets that finally small areas In dif
ferent patches to the total of about
a. . hundred acres, were allowed to
have -their own way, and Mr, Myer
decided to lay quiet and . watch for
results, t - .- ' --:
-.He "found that on this acreage the
seed-; matured splendidly.' Then he
gathered some of the -seed and pulled
up. the -beets. The latter, when test
ed, . showed -that their sugar con
tent was only about one-half of one
per cent less than the sugar content
of other beets in the same locality
which were not allowed to. seed. The
question next to determine ' was
whether the 'seed would ' germinate.
He- took 100 seeds and tested them.
The result, said Mr. Davie last night.
was the best result he had ever seen
tn'hls life, or had ever heard of and
he has been testing beet seed for
ten years. The one hundred , seeds
threw up 237 sprouts. Each seed had
at least one sprout, nearly all had
two and a few had three and four
sprouts". Not 1 one seed in the 100
failed "to germinate.
Mr. Davie at once wrote the facts
to -Secretary Wilson, 'of the agricul
tural department, and asked him to
send-ah' expert -out here at once to
look into the matter. If his report
is not disheartening Mr. Davie will
make "a trip to Europe when the fall
excursions ripen and when he comes
back he will bring with him the best
all round German seed expert he. can
get. ' " r "

Nelson, gave the Durable Dane a thor
ough whipping in a ten round bout
before the Pacific Athletic club ' to
night. ' Wolgast waded In and had the
advantage in six of the ten rounds.
The champion did not have a single
round m his favor, an even .break be
ing the very best he could get .
Wolgast fought the champion at his
own game and beat him decisively.
Nelson's face was badly-swollen and
blood streamed from his nose and
mouth at the close of the figljL Wol
gast was practically unmarked. It was
a terrific fight from start to finish
and not jntil the ninth and tenth had

own cosner and followed his usual
tactics of advancing steadily to his op
ponent. Wolgast put a light right to
Nelson's face and took a right and left
to the face. - A ripping left reached
"Nelson's Jaw. They exchanged body
blows In a clinch and Bat reached the
face with a straight left. Wolgast
sent a right cross to the Jaw in return.
. j Round 2 Wolgast reached the head 1
with a right and went into a lively
mixup in the center of the ring. Nel
son fought his way to the center of the
ring with . body punches. Wolgast

with a hard right and left to the body
Wolgast had a big lead at the end of
the round.
Round 4 In close quarters Wolgast
sent two swift rights to the face.. Nel
son was short with a left. Nelson's
left eye began to swell. They exchang
ed body punches. Wolgast reached
the side of the head with the left and
shot a terrific right into Nelson's
stomach then he landed half a dozen
rights and lefts to the face without
return. It was Wolgast's round. -.-
Round S Wolgast backed away at
the start of the fifth round apparently
resting. ..They went at it head to head
Nelson reaching the body with ef
fective rights. Wolgast sent a Tight
to Nelson's -sore nose but the Dane
continued to force the fighting. . .In a
neutral corner Wolgnst stopped him
with a right and left but backed across
the ring when Nelson kept '4 coming.
Wolgast slowed up this round. -
Round 6 Nelson continued to, force
his man. taking many, punches. Wol
gast got to the head with rights and
lefts. Nelson swung a left to the head

ropes but did not land effectively. He
swung a left to the head. Wolgast
sent Nelson back but he came on
fighting hard. . . .

nose and lips were badly swollen. . It
was Wolgast's round. ' . -

lo Conference Over The Tariff
But All Points Over Which
There Was Likely to Be
. Serious Dispute : Were
Passed ; 'and Will Be
Taken Up .This Morning
Washington, July 13. By passing
over the cotton and woolen schedules
without taking up any of the amended
paragraphs and skipping the disputed
points of rates, on lumber, in the wood
schedule, the tariff conferees were able
today to dieppse of about 400 amend
ments; Many important subjects were
submitted to. sub-conferees. When
the night session begun the conferees
had reached the sundries, near the last
schedule. So many matters had been
put over for future sessions, however,
that it is .difficult to tell how much
progress has been made.
The moment a member of the con
ference emerges from the session, he is
surrounded and briefs relating to va
rious schedules are thrust at him by
lobbyists. Some conferees have adopt
ed the plan of refusing to accept
these arguments, declining on the
ground that the bill has been consid
ered by both, branches) of congress and
