manifest when Marshal Herzog nnd a
squad of officers burst into the estab
lishment which was cloaked as a
Turkish, restaurant and. confiscated all
the beverages they could find:
A wagon was required to carry off
the wet goods. .
At 11:15 p. m., when the amusement
seeking . crowds numbered thousands,
Herzog gave tho signal to his men to
go forward and surround tho enclosure
marked "Turkish tea garden."
The men did their work well and
no one was allowed to leave till the
officers wore satisfied that they knew
where all the bottled and cose goods
were concealed.
Rush on Midway
With their approach there was a rush
from the • nenrby concessions, some
from fear and others from curiosity,
and the Turkish theater was jammed
in a Jiffy.
When n. wagon drove up and four
teen cuses of drinks and three barrels
that looked as if they contained beer
wore lifted aboard, there was tumultu

Ministry's Downfall
Is Practically -
Goremykin's Attempts to
Bridge the Chasm
Prove Futile
Recurring Disaffection Among Troops
Convinces Emperor of Folly of
Trying to Temper Coun.
try's Feeling
By Associated Press.
ST. PETERSBURG, June 30.— The
downfall of the Goremykin ministry,
whose attempts to bridge the chasm
between tho government nnd parlia
ment have resulted only In widening
the breach, is now virtually an accom
plished fact. If the statement of a
grand duke enn be accepted.
According to this personage, the final
desperate effort of the faction, headed
by Minister of Agriculture Stlchlnsky.
who wishes to disperse parliament and
agnin report to repression, has failed.
The recurring disaffection among the
troops probably ronvinced his majesty
of the folly ot trying further to temper
the feeling of the country.
At any rate, according to. the grand
duke, the decision has been taken to
bow to parliament, dismiss the minis
try and to make no attempt to impose
a forced recess.
What Surrender "Means
A frnnk surrender of power into the
hands of the constitutional democrats,
which would mean nothing less than
the inauguration of a thorough consti
tutional monarchy, would find the lead
ers of that party ready to undertake
the fight against the rising tide of rev
olution, but it Is too much to expect
the emperor nnd the court to mnke
such abject capitulation.
In spite of denials, negotiations be
tween conservative constitutional dem
ocratic leaders 'and Emperor Nicholas
have been secretly in progress for sev
eral da,ys.
But there is no reason to believe that
they have eventuated anything definite
toward superaodlßg th<; Gmeniykln
cabinet with a mixed ministry of con
stitutional Democrats and Octoberists
elected from the council of the empire
with Finance Minister KokovsofC as
Dremier. , • .
Such a cabinet, If it could be formed,
might temporarily tide over the pres
ent crisis, but the diverging elements
will be probably incapable of working
in harmony, and thus it would only
postpone and not solve the great Issue.
The difficulty' of forming a new cab
inet is likely to delay the announce
ment of Premier Goremykin's retire
ment several days. Neither the press
nor the public Is aware of the decision
at Peterhof.

By Axsodnted Press.
PHOENIX, Ariz., June 30.— Governor

"While he has 'been led to believe

In respect- to the statehood question,

that the Southern Pacific influence
would be cast for Jointure instead of

Among witnesses who have been ex
amined at the district attorney's of
fice are several little girls who are said
to have attended White's entertain
ments. The same gjr^s have told their
Ptorles to Thaw's counsel.
The Disrobing Act
One of the incidents developed In the
district attorney's office and corrob
orated by, Attorney Olcott's inquiries
gives an idea of things done at White's
parties. One aged roue used to place
ten and twenty dollar gold pieces In
cracked ice in his glass and await an
opportunity of slipping them down the

scjvnms sis the icy metal touched, their
flesh was supposed to be almost as good
fun as a sigh ti of the victims afforded
the company when they proceeded to
disrobe to find the money.
Attorney Olcott said today: "Mrs.
Thaw will be the principal witness In
her husband's defense.- She will tell a
thrilling story. I cannot give details,
but her testimony will open the eyes of
New Yorkers and people all over the

NEW YORK, June 30.— "Mrs. Thaw
will be the principal witness in her
husband's defense. She will tell a
thrilling and startling 1 story. I cannot
make the details public now, but her
testimony will open the eyes of New
Yorkers and people all over the world."
This statement was made today by
Former Judge Olcott of counsel for
Harry K. Thaw.
Some interesting sidelights j were
thrown on the Thaw-White tragedy by
a private detective, who declared that
he was employed by White as a body
guard for more than a year before the
In extracts from his diary the de
tective says that White undoubtedly
feared for his life; that he took minute
precautions to guard against a sur
prise; that equally Ingenious plans
were made by a corps of detectives em
ployed by Thaw to keep track of
White's movements', and that on the
day that White was shot he had dei
cided to apply to the authorities to
prevent the continuance of tha espion
age to which he had been subjected.
Body Guard Expensive
According to the detective, White
paid over $6000 between February 14,
1005, and the day of his death for the
protection of his person/ and for the
shadowing of the detectives who were
pursuing him.
The detective thus describes a meet-
Ing between White and himself, when
he told the architect that Thaw .was
the employer of the detectives who
were annoying him. According to the
statement. White said:' . .
"This man Thaw Is crazy. He Imag
