New York, June 80.—Harry Thaw
passed an uncomfortable night In his
cell on account of the oppressive heat.
The prison is close and stuffy, even
under ordinary conditions of weather,
And last night it was almost unbear
able., Toward morning the tempera
ture dropped slightly and the prisoner
-•succeeded in getting to sleep. Scarce
ly-more than an hour later, however,
the sun came pouring through the
barred window of his cell and his
was ended. Mrs. Thaw, was the earli
est visitor at prison today. She ar
rived at the beginning of the four
hour period during which visitors are
permitted to enter the Tombs. The
streets around the prison were de
serted when she arrived tdday.
Counsel for Thaw.
A caller Thaw received at. the
Tombs was a man who said he was
Clifford W.Harbrldge. He is ft Pitts
burg lawyer and will also act for
Thaw. With the retaining of the firm
of Black, Olcott, Climber & Bonynge,
.Thaw has an array of legal talent to
defend him that is considered excep
tional. There are ex-Governor Frank
S.. Black, ex-Judge William M. K. Ol
cott, Lewis L. Deiafield,^Frederick P.
Delafield, Clifford W. Harbridge, of
Pittsburg Daniel O'Reilly and George
B. Gordon of Pittsburgh, the counsel for
the Thaw family.
IpwUtr It Family.
80 far as known, there has been
only one case of insanity in the Thaw
family. That was the case of Harriet
Thaw, an aunt of Harry Kendall
Thaw's who was found in a cellar in ft
house in Philadelphia during the win
ter of 1904. She was living alone in
the cellar, to direst poverty, With only
r&ta as her enmpaqlnaa.Her condition,
was pitiful, and a great sensatlbfrwas
created when It became known that
she was related to the wealthy and
charitable Thaw family of Pittsburg.
Mrs. Harriet Thaw was taken from
the cellar to a. private sanitarium, but
she died soon after She reached there,
a raving maniac.
Thaw Dcqln Havlit Talked.
Previous to being arraigned before
Magistrate Barlow Thaw was taken
Into the room of Sergeant Casey,
where he was allowed to talk a few
minutes with Daniel O'Reilly, his tem
porary counsel. O'Reilly cautioned
Thaw not to talk about his case to
any one, and the prisoner assented
O'Reilly then asked him if he had
said to a reporter at the police station
on Monday night:
Thaw told the lawyer he never had
said anything of the sort to anyone.
Woman Writes Letter.
Thaw received only one letter at
the Tombs Wednesday. It was evident
ly written by a woman and the hand
writing was disguised. The letter was
In a plain envelope and the address
was in printed and not written let
ters. But the printed letters were
easily discernable to be those writ
ten by a woman. The "M" of "Mr."
was the conventional "M" of a wom
an's handwriting, although almost
printed. The writer had also evi
dently tried to show illiteracy, as the
word "Tombs" was spelt "Toombs."
The letter lay on the desk In the hall
way of the Tombs for some hours
and was finally sent up to Thaw.

Washington, June 30.—The first
session of the Fifty-ninth congress
goes into history today. It has been
a strenuous session from start to fin
ish. The measure which caused great
est debate is the railroad rate bill.
Begun- with the session, its consider
ation continued throughout. The pure
food enactment and meat Inspection
provisions are also important changes
in federal attitude towards both pro
ducer and consumer of the country.
A uniform-and more strict method
of naturalizing aliens was enacted.

year for that purpose.
It was required that the material
for the canal should be of American
manufacture unless the president shall
find the price excessive, in which case
he is given authority to buy abroad.
The consular service, was given
complete new legal values which will
permit of an entire reorganization.
When the appropriations for the
session are totalled it will be found
that their aggregate has reached near
ly nine hundred million dollars. This
is a greater sum than has been made
available since the war congress of
1898. Of this amount $25,000,000 will'
go into new public buildings in vari

Special to The Evening Times.
Washington, D. C., June 30.—The
series of false alarms coming chroni
cally from Russia have somewhat dis
posed the American people, tolerably
well occupied with their own con
cerns, to view each new intimation
of an approaching crisis with incredul
ity. So often have misinformed or
Impetuous correspondents represented
the empire en the brink of revolution
that even the discriminate reader is
apt to be misled regarding the real
significance of current developments.
It Is evident, however, that the pres
ent widespread disaffection is of a
more sinister nature than the recent
break between the czar and the
douma, then regarded by many as the
first chapter in an open rebellion
against the government. News dis
patches represent demoralization* as
existing in practically every section
of the empire. There are not lacking
indications of a common inspiration
back of these disorders. They occur
in too regular seqnence to permit of
an explanation on the grounds of coin
cidence. The slaughter of Jews In
Bialystok appears to be merely an In
cident In the general upheaval—a re
pellent and discouraging incident, but
none the less only a symptom, but
universal disquiet and'the prevalence
of the mob spirit
When Nicholas checked the riotous
march of his first parliament by re
jecting its demand for sweeping con
cessions and suggesting that reform
must come gradually and symmetrical
ly, it is apparent that he set the match
to the train 'resulting in the current
manifestations. The peasant body had
been led by Us representatives in the
douma to believe that the government
would oppose no vety strenuous ob
stacles to the general expropriation
of land, a policy Involving a radical
revolution in' the present economic
system- of the empire, the universal
disturbance .of titles/ and such redls
trlbutlon o£ properties," aa would give
the petty ^agriculturists acres'for the
support of their families .free of the
onerous landlordexactions-^municlpal
and national taxations which have
made the emancipation of the serfs
merely a nominal one.
It was' the land question that
touched the great masses of population
in a tender spot. The question of
general amnesty and of the right of
the douma to participate actively in
the povernment probably interested
only the aspiring politicians of that
body, or the theorists who believe that
the nation can become self-governing
over night. So that when it became
known that there would be no im
mediate reformation of this deep-lying
question—and the "reformers" In St
Petersburg took care that the informa
tion received general circulation with
out delay—the tension In town and
provinces became acute. It was not
difficult to inflame the factory classes
—already under the domination of the
revolutionary and socialist propaganda
—and the organized student body, pow
erful in all the large cities, lent its
aid in fermenting dlsastisfaction.
The passive attitude of the czar in
the face of what seems to be organized
resistance to the government can only
be explained on t3i£,^v.°Jy that he
has implicit faith In Me" loyalty of the
army, and prefers that: the turbulence
come to a head and justify drastic
measures of repression. If Nicholas
is not being deluded and the army
really is solidly back of him, an out
break means bloody suppression on
the part of the government, the re
moval of the troublesome problem
presented by the douma, and probably
the loss of the little fictitious progress
made toward popular liberty in the
last few months. If Nicholas is mis
taken, if the reports regarding mutiny
in the army are accurate, the world
may anticipate revolution and a quali
fied repetition of some of the horrors
attending the French reign of terror.

St Petersburg, June 30.—Uppermost
in question now is how long the pres

the government can continue. Premier
Goremykin is no longer a factor in the
situation, but some of his colleagues,
headed by Minister of Agriculture
Stichinsky, realizing that unless the
government fights the cabinet must
fall, are earnestly advising the em
peror to take the bull by the horns and
tiisbulve parliament. They have sub
mitted a memorandum to the emperor
advising him to take this course on the
ground that parliament has ceased to
be a legislative body and is simply a
center of revolutionary agitation and
urging that immediate action is neces
sary. They contended that the army
as a whole can still be relied upon.

noon. She was almost in a state of"
collapse. She was accompanied by
Miss Abbott, a trained nurse a com
panion, two maids and two other
servants. Mrs. Prescott Hall Butler

Ripon, Wis., June 30.—The Rev
Father Kruszka of this city has re
ceived word that Archbishop Weber of
Poland has been transferred to Amer
ica, where he will have supervision of
the entire Polish Catholic church in
America. This, Father Kruszka says,
is a practical concession to the re
quests of the Polish church, and will
no doubt lead to further appointments,
as one bishop cannot possibly super
vise the entire country. Archbishop
Weber is expected to arrive in this
country about Christmas and will re
side in Chicago.
