Lord Rosebery's thunderbolt against home rule was considered by many as un excellent piehminury to going over to tho oth ft ! eV.it that does not seem, to be the case. His attitude resembles Mr. Ilolfour's. It represents the con servative and spektlcal view of the t'emocracy, and. while it stands for the rights of property In the ab siraet, declares against any extension of property to the classes not now possessing it. The liberal attitude to ward property may best be described hostile only to the excessive ac cumulation nnd unchecked power of wealth to the same tendency which has destroyed all the civilized socle ties of the piist. The 'Spectator" while it agrees completely with the Mibslance of Lord Rosebery's criti cisms, with his protest ugalnst home Mile, and half-hearted socialism, says: "It is impossible to overlook the fact that the tone and temper of his speech are sure considerably to Im pair its value. Yet Lord Rosebery must be taken as we find him. a lu minous public commentator, haneli- apped by his supersensitive artistic temperament. I'llODK I-: KXCHAXGK II AS opkm:i stock i:xt'ii N;i:.

FAMOUS TRIALS AS COMPARED WITH THAW'S Writes Letter to Thaw For For Money and Confesses He Lied About Evelyn. QUIET DAY AFTER THE STRENUOUS TRIAL AGONY Keports ot Change of Attorneys by Thaw Family Circulated But Denied by Delmas. New York, April 13. A letter writ tell by Howard Nesblt, brother of l-'vf Ivn to llnri'V rlh.iie n .1 niiHii public today by some of Thaw's coun isci, it Is said. In it tho young man (wrote that when White was shot he thought It would be heroic to stand by Hie "man whose memory was so precious to me." As to w hen Jerome took his statement Howard Nesblt wrote: "I wrote him what Florence told me or at least was supposed to have told me. 1 will put it more strongly and say she never told me anything ngalnsi you that would tend lo hurt you in any way. I lied, think ing it would help the man who I thought was so good." Abjectly Ja-jr for Money. As to his subsequent attitude to wards his sister und Thaw, he wrote that utter Kvelyn told her story on the stand he was with her from that tune forward, and adds that he had been influenced by designing persons, lie says: "1 believe you weie right and justilied in doing what you did, and you are now in my estimation inoie than a hero." He declares that he wrote Kvelyn In- wus sorry und asked her for $100 to pay certain debts he contract ed In Now York, but he adds, "She seems to be somewhat bitter Ht me und will not see me. She answered that she did not have the money." He then appeals to Thaw for money which Kvelyn did not send him nnd declares that he would rather kill him self than go to "certain persons in this city for help," that he will not write home for money nnd ut times has felt like "ending It all." .Jurors Nearly Come to I'.lous, It has leaked out that early Thurs day morning Juror l'laff, who stood out for conviction from the lirst, made Kome remarks which were resented by the four men who voted for ac quUbiJ. Whilejicaireakfast thai day. Juror Steel approached Plaff ami de manded an apology, which I'faft re fused to make. One word led to an other and when Steel shook his fist in 1-Maff'H face nnd threatened to punch his head, the other Jurors ln terferred and prevented further trou ble. Thaw Studies cspacis. Absolute inaction followed the Thaw case today, succeeding the In tense strain and feverish interest of the many weeks that the trial was under way. Not one of the lawyers in the proceedings was at his ofllce during the early morning hours. Thaw spent a restless night ut the Tombs, but according to attendants slept three or four hours. He was up early and spent considerable time looking through the newspapers. To the re porters who sent up a note he re plied that he had "nothing to say just nt this time." Thuvv Wus Deeply IisupHln(c-el. Although bitterly disappointed over the mistrial, and especially as he be lieved up to the last minute he would be acquitted. Thaw is bearing up bravely. So certain was he of freedom that shortly before the Jury came in for the last lime he wrapped up u number of letters and papers which he meant to take with him, and when he was told by Messrs Peabodv and o'Rlelly that the Jury could not agree, he dropped the papers to the tloor speechless nnd disheartened, but presently recovered courage. It Is rumored tnat owing to dis agreement all of Thaw's present coun sel, except possibly Daniel O'Rlelly, will be dismissed. It is also reported that the Thaw family may go back to their original counsel, the lirm of lilack, Olcolt, flruber and llonynge The estimates made of the total cost of the trial places It at about $300. out), of which $200,000 falls on tho Thaws. Counsel Will Not lie (Imaged. The Hist question to be decided by the Thaw side Is that of applying for bail. Jerome will strongly oppose admitting Thaw to bail, holding that he should be treated like any other person in similar circumstances; To the various rumors mat there will be a new alignment of counsel for Thaw, Helrnas nays he has not withdrawn or been superceded. He was the tirat caller Thaw had today, lie refused to say whether Thaw sum moned him or whether he had come at the request of Mrs. William Thaw. TOIt CC) (.UOWl ltS I-'HKF.

The business of the dispensary In Charles ton county for the first month of Its c peration shows up $25,000. The re ceipts would have been much heavier but for lack of cheap grades of corn liquor. The receipts are expected to reach $45,000 monthly. This busi ness was done by eleven dispensaries, which Is less than the number for merly employed, for the reason that the special beer dispensaries were closed by the board, leaving the busi ness to be handled exclusively through the regurlurly licensed brewery and bottling plants. There Is a marked sentiment In favor of patronizing the dispensary instead of the blind tigers and liquor solicitors, and with this sentiment growing, as it Is unmistak able, the county board sees still larger I luliu ahead, and the dispensing sys tem may yet become a permanent in stitution on account of the profit fea ture, reducing tax"S und licenses on business.
