Success of Two Philadelphia
Gentlemen on Recent Visit to
Colony Results in Plans for
Building a School for the
Society in Canada.
Winnipeg, June 28.^WmEvikn8 and
John G. Haines, well known citizen's'
-of Philadelphia, and members of the
Society of Friends arrived in the city
today after visiting members of their
society located in the northwest, and
after also visiting several of the Douk
hobor villages. ".
The object of these gentlemen was
to carry out the plan-entertained for
years by the Society of Friends in the
United States, to aid to some extent in
the work of education of the Douk
hobor children. At the present, time
they have reached- the conclusion to
build one school in the Doukhobor vil
lage of-Petrofka, and a second may be
built in the town of Buchanan. A
teacher has., already been secured for
the Petrofka school, and teaching will
begin in that village in the fall if the
structure Is ready at that time. The
building will be shipped ready to set
tip, from .Vancouver.
"When we Were'here three years
ago," said Mr. Evans, "we spent six
hours in conference with. Peter Verl
gin, discussing the education question
very fully. At the conclusion of the
conference Peter Verigin stated that it
would be necessary for him to consult,
his people, with the result that nothing
was done. We offered at the time to
erect a boarding school in his own vil
lage, and thoroughly educate enough
of the Doukhobor young people to act
as teachers In ail the villages. Noth
ing, however, came of our conference
Doukhobors have apparently a strong
Aversion to education. In Russia at
one time the government wotald not al-:
low them to have teachers, and now a
very large proportion do not want
them. It Is only a question of time,
"however, until satisfactory schools
will be established and the Society of
Friends in the United States, which
we represent will endeavor to do its
-full duty in establishing them."
Mr. Haines and Mr. Evans spent the
rooming In conference with the com
laiasiooer of immigration, J. Obed
'Smith. During their stay in town they
-are guests at the Leland.
"On the present occasion we made
no effort to see Veregln and do not ex
pect to confer with him personally.
We expect, however, to carry on some
educational work, and Will do

New Torki June 28.—Events Col
lpwed each other in rapid succession
ln the Thaw-White inurder tragedy to
day. The proceedings beg&n with'the
coroner's inquest which consumed
scarcely more than a half hour, and
the Jury consumed only three minutes
in reaching its verdict, which declar
ed that White came to his death by a
gunshot wound inflicted by Thaw.
The presentation of the case to the
grand Jury followed without delay and
by earlyr afternoon, an indictment
charging murder In the first degree
had been reported, the prisoner had
been ,sent back to the Tombs without
'. bail and arrangements had been made
for him to plead to the indictment to
morrow. Throughout the entire pro
ceedings Thaw appeared to be the
least interested person in the criminal
Mrs. Thfw was taken before the
grand jury, but it is understood she
declined to answer any questions bear
ing on the murder, and no pressure
whatever was exerted to force her to
testify. The body of Stanford White
was burled today at St. James, L. I.
Mrs. Thaw remained in the grand
jury room about fifteen minutes. She
then left in company with her hus
band's counsel and went to the Tombs
to visit the prisoner.
The grand jury returned an Indict
ment against Thaw charging murder
in the first degree. Thaw will plead
to the Indictment before Justice Cowin
A decision was reached that Mrs.
Thaw will refuse to testify before the
grand jury and that she will plead
that she should not be made to give
any evidence that might be damaging
to her husband. Mrs. Thaw asked
permission of her husband's counsel
to attend the coroner's inquest today
and sit by her husband's side, but her
request was denied by the attorney.
The White Inquest was completed
and the case was submitted to the jury
shortly after 11 o'clock.
The Important testimony at the in
quest was given by Lionel Lawrence,
stage director at the Madison Square
Roof Garden theater. Lawrence said
that Immediately after the shooting,
Mra. Thaw rushed up to her husband
and throwing her anna around his
neck said, "Never .mind, Harry, I will
stick to you through thick and thin."
Thaw turned to the crowd which sur
rounded thein and said, "That ......
ruined my wife and I got him and I
fixed him for it" The jury brought in
a verdicfthat White came to hla death
by gunshot wounds inflicted by.Harry
Soon after the close of the coroner's
inqnest, proceedings against Thaw
were begun before the grand Jury. At
noon Mrs. Harry K. Thaw entered the
grand jury room. She was accom
panied by her counsel Judge Olcott
and Terence McManus.
As near aa can be learned the de
tails of the crime are as follows,':
About five minutes after 11 o'clock

woman whom many thought to be his
wife. They had been on the. roof all
the evening, though the Woman kept
in the'shadow of the shrtibbery. Thaw
was seen walking about In bis evening
dress, pale and haggard.
White went up to the roof about
10:55 o'clock, going direct from the
Manhattan club to the garden. He sat
at the fifth table from the stage, on
the 26th street side. He spoke to Har
ry- Stevens, the caterer, a moment,
then fixed his attention on the stage.
There was a merry group of girls
dancing and singing, and the audience
was enthusiastically applauding. Thaw
walked toward White, his hand in his
bosom. Within three feet of his vic
tim he drew a revolver, and, like a
flash, three quick reports were heard,
as Thaw shouted:
"Tou you ruined my wife!
Spectators declared that Thaw
shouted as he poured the lead Into his
victim. White did not recognize his
murderer. If is doubtful if he even
lifted his eyes from the stage in Hm«
to look into Thaw's face, before he
fell, dragging empty chairs and tables
For possibly a minute the big au
dience was deceived. Men and'women
sitting at the tables thought it was
an artful stage trick which they were
supposed to drink in. But -the reality
of the whole affair flashed on them
suddenly, and women fainted and
screamed and men jumped over the
chairs in their eagerness to reach the
scene of the shooting.
Thaw did not appear to be a bit
perturbed. He turned on his heels,
holding the smoking revolver aloft,
and almost marched to the elevator.
Some'one heard him muttering:
"Tou you will never harm
my wife again."
He was about to enter the elevator
when a fireman attached to the house
grabbed him and took the revolver
away. Several detectives also reach
ed the scene, and he calmly submitted
to arrest. As Thaw was being taken
away the woman who was with him,
and, as has been said, was: recognized
as Airs. Thaw, wound her arms about
him, kissed him passionately and de

Then she drew herself from him,

Devils Lake People Believe
Finny Tribe Will Thrive in

Aid of Senator Hansbrough.
JUG OF WATER
From Devils Lake for Analysis—
Prominent Men Pushing Pro*
ject of Planting.
By Em C, 8ay4er.
Washington, D. C., June 28.—Sena
tor Hansbrough is in receipt of a let
ter from Mr. C. M. Fisher, president
of the Ramsey County National hanir
oi Devils Lake, seeking his aid to
secure the restocking of the lake with
fish. Senator Hansbrough is giving
the matter his hearty co-operation.
It appears that the Business Men's
association of Devils Lake has appoint
ed Mr. Fisher at the head of a com
mittee to look into the matter of en
deavoring to get some game and edibl»
fish into the main lake. Mr. Fisher,
who is evidently an enthusiastic dis
ciple of Izaak Walton, recalls to the
recollection of Senator Hansbrough
that in days past fish by the carload
were taken from the lake and he con
fidently believes that in waters whero
fish once thrived so abundantly could
again be made to teem'with the finny
tribe, to the joy of the sportsman and
the profit of the community. Some
time ago Mr. Charles E. Taylor became
interested in restocking the lake and
procured from it a sample of its water
and had it analyzed and submitted the
analysis to some fish expert and then
forwarded his report to officials of the
fish commission at Washington. Wash
ington officials were not satisfied with
the analysis of the water an dintimat
ed that a more thorough and sclentifio
analysis should be made. Mr. Fisher
proposes to offer the commissioner on
fish and fisheries another sample ot
the peculiar water of Devils lake. Ia
his letter to Senator Hansbrough, Mr.
Fisher states that he went to the lake
the other day armed with a brand new
two gallon jug whic hhe filled with
water from the bosom of the lake,
corked and sealed It and expressed
this most original ptickage-of fish bait
to Hon. Georgfe M. Bowers, "commis
sioner of fish and fisheries. No one
yet knows what Bowers will think of
this jug of water. That will probably
remain a secret for along time.
Mr. Fisher is confident, however, it
a proper analysis and due and serious
consideration is given the matter that
the question of the kind of fish to ex
periment with can be decided upon,
and all this too, done speedily, so that
it might be possible to make a ship
ment of fish for the salt lake at the
same time that a shipment is sched
uled to go forward for the fresh water
lake this fall. Senator Hansbrough,
as before stated, is taking an interest
in the matter and has written a letter
to Commissioner Bowers urging that
official to give the request of the
Devil's Lake Business Men's associa
tion early and serious consideration.
