DELEGATE ANDREWS GEIS CHANGEOF CHARACTER Immigration Bill Passes the House by Good Big MaJorItyOver All Opposition. Special to The Evening Cltlien. Washington. D. C. Feb. 18. An interview with Delegate Andrews has developed these facts: In the ap propriation for a public building at Albuquerque, $100,000, which Mr. Andrews secured in the closing mo ments of the first session of the preB ent congress, the structure was spoken of as a nnstofllce building. The delegate had great trouble In getting this straightened up, but he finally succeeded in having it correct ed by a bill, so that Albuquerque can now have a public building. The architect tells Mr. Andrews that he can plan only on the basis of the money appropriated. He cannot design a building to cost over $100, 000, hoping that subsequent appropri ations may make good the deficit. Hence, his plans will be for a build ing about the style of the federal building at El Paso. He claims that he can make a first-class building for $100,000, as the government owns the ground already. Of course, the furniture will be extra, but the next congress may be relied upon for that. Solomon Luna is here and he seems much pleased with the plan, Every one familiar with the south west knows that the El Paso federal building is a magnificent structure of four Btorles and basement, accommo dating the postofflce, the federal . court, weather bureau and the cus toms departments. Such a building would be all that Albuquerque could need had she 75,000 Inhabitants, Work is to be begun at once. Conditions are not so favorable with reference to the validation of Ihe 'Albuquerque Issue of city bunds. Delegate Andrews has had this mat ter up with the committee several times, and still believes that be will be able to get (hem to report favor ably upon it, although many of the members of the committee are op posed to any such action on general grounds, and they fear that when the measure comes before the house, some one will object and that will kill it. However, the delegate in tends to push the measure if it be possible to do so. The Andrews bill conferring Juris diction on the court of claims in the case of Manuelita Swope, has been referred to the committee on claims, and his bill, granting lands to Anna Johnson, has gono to the committee on public lands. Andrews has taken up with the pension division the cases of Antonio Jose Mares for a $12 pen slon, and Joseph Feutzer for $17. IMMIGRATION BILL IS CARRIED IV THE HOUSE. Washington, Feb. 18.

RAILROAD EXPENDITURES TO DE LARGELY' CUT. Chicago, Feb. 18. Investigation shows that railroads entering Chicago have curtailed estimates for this year's work in an amount which will exceed $125,000,000. This applies to roads which enter Chicago only. It Is estimated that the Burlington will spend $20,000,000 less this year than would have been spent had monetary conditions been better. The road will proceed with the terminal and development work now under way. Several eastern trunk line roads have been conducting negotiations looking to the transfer of new equip ment committments to other lines, particularly western lines. It Is said on good authority that In one or two Instances there is a desire to trans fer two-thirds of the equipment or dered. The causes for this are large ly to be found In the antagonistic sen timent manifested toward the rail ways and in some Instances the cur tailment of expenditures Is owing to the difficulty which the roads know they would meet if they endeavored to get money "IAN MACI.AREN" AR RIVES IN NEW YORK.

SHERWOOD HlfflSELFJLDATIl, N. 1 Was Son of New York Banker and For mer Captain of Yale Rowing Crew. Death Beats Medical Aid. Special to The Evening Citizen. Magdalena, N. M, Feb. 18. Sher wood B. Ives, Bon f Burton Ives, a wealthy New York banker, and erst while captain of tie Yale rowing crew, nccidently shot himself Satur day afternoon at Ditll, 90 miles west of here, and died at 10 o'clock Satur day night as he was being brought ere. The shooting took place at the ranch of Hay Morh y, former foot ball ! coach of Columbl New York. Ives had been riding during the early part of the day and had come into the house, with pistol strapped at his belt. The holster came I ose letting the gun fall to the floor. It was an automatic pistol and explode. The bullet en tered the thigh an 1 ranging upward lodged In the Intes'lnes.

EVANS CORROBORATED BY, DR. Part of Thaw's Will Was Permitted to be Introduced by Jerome. Who No Longer Offered His Usual Objections. New York, Feb. 18. The serious differences among the lawyers, who ' are engaged to defend Thaw, was patched up last evening and It Is probable that for the remainder of the trial there will be at least an armed truce among them. For a time It looked as If the trouble had reached the stage where Delphln M. Delmas, who has conducted the defense, would withdraw from the case; but now It appears he will go on. The Interces sion of Mrs. William Thaw is said to be responsible for patching up the quarrel. An open rupture among the lawyers would be very serious for Thaw, and the realization of this fact doubtless had much to do with the settlement of the difficulty. Juror Bolton Reports. After an Interruption of four days, the trial of Harry K. Thaw was re sumed today. Juror Joseph B. Bol ton, the death of whose wife caused the postponement of the case and the release of the jury from close con finement since last Thursday, was early at the criminal court building, declaring he felt perfectly able to go ahead with the trial. During the long adjournment there had been many rumors of conflict among the defendant's counsel, but at the opening of court today all six of the attorneys, who have represented Thow during the proceedings, were at his counsel table, consulting together as usual. Dr. Brltton D. Evans, superintend ent of the New Jersey state hospital for the Insane, at Morris Platns, was on the stand last Thursday when the trial adjourned and was recalled to day as the first wltrass. Delmas took up the direct exa 'nation of the wit ness, .thus retaining his position as leading counsel. Dr. Evans Gives Testimony. Evans was asked to relate the con versations he had with Thaw during the first three visits to the defendant at the Tombs. The witness had here tofore testified that as the result of these conversations he had concluded Thaw to be Insane. Jerome demanded that the witness produce his nc.es and Evans explain ed that what few notes ho had taken had been lost after he turned them over to his stenographer. "I may omit essential details, but I will have to depend entirely on my memory," said the witness. Here Jerome objected. "This witness," he declaredt "says he may omit essential facts." "What can he do," replied Justice Fitzgerald, Magdalena. The train had been chartered and Dr. P. G. Cornish and Mr. Chadwlck were Just getting aboard when news came that it was too late. Ives had not lived to make the journey from Datll to Magdalena. Ives came to New Mexico about five years ago for his health and took up his residence at the Morley ranch. Hay Morley having been an old New York acquaintance. He waa well sup plied with money and endowed with a wit and humor that made him pop ular from the Hlo Grande to the Datll He adopted the broad sombrero, the high heeled boots and chaps and fell Into the customs of the com camps with a grace that made him a special favorite among the cowboys.

Dr. Hartwell will arrive on the limited tomorrow and ship the body east, accompanying it. S SHOOTS RESUMED AF WAGNER, WHO IS RECALLED "but give his best memory? That is all that la required by the rules of evidence. The objection waa overruled and Evans began to relate the Incidents of his first visit to Thaw on August 4 last. . , What Thaw Said of White. He said that Thaw had told him at great length that White had drugged, poisoned and ruined a great number of young women. He declared there waa a conspiracy In which his own lawyers were Included to railroad him to an asylum and shut these mat ters from the public. On his second visit Thaw told the same story of persecution that he related on the first visit. He referred constantly to this man, this creature, this dead man, this beast, this blackguard and said he had tried to take the virtue of every pure minded woman who came within the sphere of his obser vation. "I tried to save them," said Thaw, according to Evans, "I never wanted to shoot this creature, I never wanted to kill him. I wanted to get him into court so he would be brought to jus tice." Evans asked why under the circumstances he shot White and Thaw replied: "Providence took charge of It. This was an act of providence. For my part 1 would rather have had him suf fer In court the humiliation which the repllion of his acts would shave caused." Thaw told Evans he had gone to see Anothony Comstock, Dis trict Attorney Jerome and a private detective agency in the effort to bring White Into court. Jerome told him he had better let the matter drop, that there was nothing to it. The detec tives took the matter up but never submitted a proper report. As to Comstock he said that he discovered DeLancey Nlcoll, an attorney, r.as acting as legal advisor both for White and Comstock. He regarded this as another link in the conspiracy against himself. He said he carried a pistol on ad vice of Roger O'Mara, Pittsburg de- testlve, after thugs had Jostled him several times and tried to pick quar rels with him. He said these thugs were the agents of White and they planned to get him to quarrel and then beat or kick him to death. Dr. Wagner U Recalled. The wltnesB next described his third visit, when Thaw practically refused to have anything to do with him and the visit was very brief. Dr. Charles G. Wagner, superin tendent of the state hospital for the Insane at Blnghamton, N. Y., was then recalled to the stand. When on the stand previously he was not al lowed to relate his conversations with Thaw. He was recalled to tell these. Dr. Wagner told practically the same story as Dr. Evans and agreed with the tatter's conclusion that Thaw's idea was that he was acting as the agent of Providence in killing White. At the conclusion of Wegner's testi mony Delmas said he would like to Introduce parts of Thaw's will. Jer ome said It any of It should be offer ed, all would have to go In, as there were elements aa to handwriting, etc., which must be considered by the Jury. This Indicates Jeromo Is no longer opposed to the introduction of the will. At this point recess was taken until this afternoon. Part of Will Is Put In. District Attorney Jerome this after noon permitted the reading of the provision in Thaw's will setting aside $50,000 fur prosecution of any per sons who might be suspected of hav ing caused his death by violence. CAITAIN JOHN KIRWIN. FENIAN LEADER, DEAD. Dublin, Feb. 18.

New York, Feb. 18. Judge Hazel, of the United St-,s tiicult coir.t to day handed down a decision ruling that buffalo hides from liulii '.aniwi enter the United States. The im ports of hides from India i-ivc Ith in the past few years greatly Increas ed, the merchandise being used In the manufacture of shoes, mid in oth er lines. Judge Hazel in his decision states that the term "hides of cattle" In the Dinglcy tariff act does not In clude buffalo hides or the skins of the hump cattle of India or Africa. As the decision will seriously effect the leather trade an appeal to Judge Hazel's ruling will be lodged. T SANTA FE Council Got Down to Work This Morning and House This Afternoon.

As far as entertainment went, the excursionists could not be prejudiced against either town. As far as pos sibilities are concerned, there are rfo limits to them anywhere In the great valley. The hat was passed on the train be fore reaching Santa Fe and every one was asked to cast a vote either In favor of Estancla or Wlllard for the location of the county seat. All but about twenty persons voted. The re sult wns: For Estancla 78; for Wll lard, 12. Whether this will in any way represent the sentiments of the house members when council bill No. 15, for the change of the county seat from Estancla to Wlllard comes up, is a matter of doubt. "Hurrah for Estancla valley the new farming district of New Mexico," will at least be remembered as the slogan of the Thirty-seventh assem bly. No Fight on Councilman Dalle. William Gregg, justice of the peace st Estancla, returned with the ex cursionists to Santa Fe. He said: "We residents of Estancla want to be understood rightly on this question. We believe that we are entitled to the county seal because we have the largst, most up to dal and most central town In Torrance county. "We desire it understood that we are not making a tight on Councilman Carl A. Dalles. There Is no disposi tion on our part to cause a rupture In the republican party In Turrance county over this matter. We, for the most part, are republicans who advo cate the keeping of the county seat at Estancla and we believe that from what the legislators saw of the Es tancla. valley of Estancla and of our development, citizenship and loyalty, to party and territory that they will not remove the county seat to Wll lard."
