By Associated Press.
NEW York. Feb. 25.— Except for
one brief moment, Mrs. Evelyn Nel.it
Thaw had a decidedly easy day today
during the continuation of her cross
examination by District Attorney Je
rome. Whan adjournment was taken
the prosecutor announced that he had
practically concluded with the witness,
Mrs. Thaw will be. temporarily ex
cused tomorrow morning to enable Mr.
Jerome to Introduce Abraham Hum-
Mi to identify a photographic copy of
the affidavit Evelyn Nesblt is alleged
to have signed and which charges
Thaw with many cruelties during their
1 903 trip to Europe.
The district attorney got the con
tents of the affidavit before the Jury
this afternoon by reading certain of its
statements in the form of questions
. and asking Mrs. Thaw if she told such
things to Mr. Hummel,
ln each Instance she declared she
had not. She denied having ever sign
ed such an affidavit, admitting that
she had, however, signed some papers
for White In the Madison Square goN
den tower, the. nature of Which she was
not aware."
During the morning session Mr, Je
rome played his strongest card of the
day. Mrs. Thaw had denied most pos
ltlvely that she had ever been I
to see a doctor, Carleton Flint, with
Jack Barrymore.
Calls Dr. Flint
"Call Dr. Flint," commanded Mr.
Jerome.
The doctor entered from the witness
room ami was escorted to within a few
feet of the witness i hair. "Did you
ever see that man before?" Mr. Jerome
asked Mrs. Thaw.
The witness seemed a bit startled,
looked quickly and intently at the
physician, then turned to Mr. Jerome
and shook her head.
"Never," she declared.
Thaw was intensely Interested and
when the Incident was over he turned
to the newspapermen sitting near him
and whispered:
■"That man made a mistake In coming
here. lie stood there a liar. Do you
catch the point— a liar?"
Mrs. Thaw was In much better spirits
when she took the stand today and
looked decidedly better physically than
she did last week. She had all her
wits about her and did not fare at all
badly at the hands of the district at
torney, who was more gentle in hand
ling the witness.
Makes Decided Gains
lnstead of further hurting the cause
of her husband, Mrs. Thaw managed
to make two decided gains, When court
adjourned last Thursday ii appeared
from her own statements that she had
used a letter of credit from Stanford
White while touring in Europe and had
turned the letter over to Thaw.
She explained today that Thaw took
the letter of credit from her, saying
the money was "poisonous" and neith
er she nor her mother should touch It,
and that he would provide them with
funds.
Whatever had been spent of the
money, she declared, was for her moth
er.
The second point Mrs. Thaw made
•was concerning the cablegrams which I
Thaw is said to have sent to Stanford
White while In London. It appeared
Thursday that these cablegrams were
requests of White to use hi.- Influence
in keeping Mrs. Nesblt from "raising a
row" and interfering with Evelyn con
tinuing in company with Thaw.
Mr. Jerome took up tfhe subject again
today, but his questions elicited the
lnformation that the letters did not
Concern Mrs. Thaw at all but related
to a man— a secretary of the American
embassy- In London, whom Mrs. Thaw
said had "sneaked up to mamma's
bedroom and Insulted her."
lnsulted Daughter Also
She said the man had also insulted
her and that Thaw had (rone In search
of him, but failed to find him.
The pi ■. ling! today drngged a
great deal and it was evident long be
fore he announced the fact that Mr.
Jerome vas noarlng the end of his
cross-examination.
The proceedings tomorrow with Mr. I
Hummel on the stand should be more
lnti i Ing. The defense on cross-ex
ainlnation will attempt to discredit the
witness, who is under Indictment;

Strikes Popular Chord
Tho pffpet of tho remarks was elec
trical, and it Is safe to say that during
the ensuing sixty seconds or more there
was never a greater' demonstration.
among ft body of similar size, and tho
statement was frequently made after
ward that If a popular voto were taken
now In Southern California It would
show practically a unanimous sentiment
in favor of breaking away from tho
north of California, whose hatred for
tho southern section apparently is con
stantly growing.
Col. W. L. Oreen of Pasadena, who
was announced for a speech on "Good
Roads and What They Mean to 173."
was greeted by the yell, "Rah, rah,
rah; Oreon, Pasadena," for which com
pliment he expressed his thanks.
Col. Oreen demonstrated by hla re
marks that he is an enthusiast on the
subject of Rood reads, and he argued
that the acquisition of pood roads was
desirable from every point of view, in
cluding pleasure and profit, and which
he said means the same, as the pleasure
which pood roads would insure would
bring profit through the attraction of
wealthy tourists who would come to
Southern California In preference to go
ing to Europe.
Want Young Men
John Willis Baer, president of Occi
dental college, took slight issue with
the preceding- speakers who had urged
the Importance of an Increase In the
inflow of tourists and capitalists into
California.
"We are not after wealthy men only,"
said Mr. Baer. "We want young men
to come here, and do their life work.
There is no place in the world where a
young man can get more for his work
and energy and capital than in South
ern California. The state needs pub
licity, but not of the yellow kind. There
is one example of the yellow press with
its headquarters in this vicinity, and It
ought to be gagged. Then- Is a man in
San Francisco who was doli.j this
state in infinite amount of harm — I re
fer to the mayor of that city. When
the president invites him to eat with
him, it seems much more questionable
than other Invitations which he has
given for which he has been criticised.
Handicapped by the North
"The necessity for separation may
come. I am beginning to think we are
somewhat handicapped by our neigh
bors on the north."
Judge Frank Short of Fresno, who
spoken of. His remarks were called
of Southern California," made a strong
argument against the talk of secession
and declared that it should not even be
Broken of. His remarks were called
forth by those of Dr. Baer.
"I always take care to speak of Cali
fornia, and not Southern California,"
Iv said. "When the preceding speak
ers, alluding to a possible separation,
said, 'if ever it comes,' 1 echoed, 'may
It never come." California Is none too
large. There has been but one separa
tion of a st&te in the history of the
United States and that was accomplish
ed in the white heat of civil war. We
have a great state and a great people
and we must not think of lessening its
gnatness. We must maintain the
strength of a state which has honor
and power and a. voice In the nation.
California is the vanguard of the An
glo-Saxon civilization, with the Occi
dent behind it and the orient before It,
and we must show an unbroken front
to the. world. We are a state now and
forever, for better or worse, one and
Inseparable," Judge Short dwelt upon
the necessity of caution In making
concessions to immigrants ani deplored
what he called the "self-effacing ten
dency of the white race." "There has
not been ii worthy achievement of the
white race which hfis not sprung from
the brain of the, white man," ho- said,
"and we cannot afford to endanger our
Institutions by allowing them to be
contaminated by the people of other
races."
Rev, Baker P. l^ec classed the race
question with that of the south, his
former home, and took <h<- Kami- posi
tion with regard to Hs settlement as be
holds with regard to the negro prob
lem.
Discusses Race Question
"The peopla who are oompstrai to
discuss these things Intelligently." ho
said. "AN the ones who live with the
people of these races nnd are most di
rectly concerned, They know more
about it and It should In- left to them."
Lee c. Qatei uttered h warning
against the exclusion of any Immi
gration "i possible benefit. "We ought
Hot t.i (lose our doors against a meri
torious civilization of any kind," he
