Young Mrs. Thaw's voice broke
at one time during the recital, and
the defendant also wept, but the elec
tric effect of the tcstimoin as giv
en last year was missing.
This was largely due to the course
of the district attorney, who inter
posed an almost continuous; stream
of objections and was nearly always
on his feet, standing just between
the "witness and the. dt fendant. , -
The attitude of Jerome awoke

district attorney and Could find no
warrant under the constitution for

lishing the testimony, the addedt was
more than offset by the safeguards
thrown about the defendant by
granting him a speedy and public
hearing. - -
Mr. Littleton tthen asked Mrs
Thaw to tell, her story concerning
Starrfond White, as she told it to
Thaw in Paris, when he asked her
to become his wife.
Regardless of Jerome's objections
which were repeated after every sen

judge admitted it all just as she tol
it in the trial of a year ago.

HUTSELL & SCHULTZ
PLOT LAID IN
SINK THE AMERICAN
FLEET AT RIO JANEIRO
Paris, France, Jan. 20. The r.t-
mors ot tne attempt to sinK tne
American fleet seem to have started
here. A young man of good repu
tation accidentally overheard a
telephone 'conversation relative to the
plot. He at once reported to the
French government officials, and the
officials at Rio Jar.erio. Some of the
plotters have been arrested in Paris.
Tneir plan is said to have been to
lay su'bmarine mines at the narrow
points in the Straits 5 of Magellan,
which would blow tp"the first ship
to pass through. -
It was tnly through the activity of
the French officials that the plot was
frustrated. The officers at Rio Ja-
uerio inave been acquainted wttn tne
rumor man an attempt was to De
made to wreck'the fleet for some,
time but it onlv leaked out on Sun-dav.
The police at Rio Janerio are close
behind the conspirators at that place
and expect to arrest them at any moment.
