Ad viees to this effect were received todav by the nay department from Com iiiander Fullnin of the Marietta and at once transmitted to the state depart nient. As yet no word has been received nk to whether the forces have been landed at Central American ports on the Pa cific coast side, but undoubtedly thi stop hits been taken if American inter osts are involved in danger. The nav .department feels that the action taken by Commender Fiillam brings the situa tion completely in hand as far as safe guarding trade interests are concerned In addition to the protection given to Ameiicans it is felt that the action ol this government will relieve foreign governments of the necessity of taking steps towliril making naval demonstrn tions. Tho Nicarnguan commander at Tru. illo gave Commander HilLim his prom ise that American interests and all for eign interests there will be protected and that trading vessels will bo permit ted to enter and leave port without molestation.

' NBW YORK, March 21. Jerome tit day presented to Justice Fitzgerald eight "affidavits in support of the sug gestion he made yesterday in the case of Thaw that the defendant is now in such mental state as to be incapable of understanding the pioceedings or f making defense. Court was in session less than nn hour. Mr. Deliiins stated that the answer to the district attor ney's position is not ready. Justice Fitgerald allowed both sides until Sat unlay afternoon to file such affidavits as they desired. There will be no fur ther hearing in the matter of the ap 'pointmcut of a Junacy commission tin less Justice Fitgerald so directs. Nei ther the jury nor Thaw were in court today. Decision Monday By Monday Justice Fitgerald ex pects to be ready to announce his de cision. Jerome pleaded today for per mission to examine Dr. Allan McLnuc Hamilton orally, but in the absence of a waiver of professional privilege on the part of the defense Justice Fitgerald said he would not allow the doctor to be examined further at this time. Jus tie Fitzgerald added significantly that he 'would take judicial notico of every thing which has been adduced in evi donee during the nine weeks' trial. Dr. Hamilton, it will be remembered, yester day testified that in his opinion Thaw is not at present capable of directing his defense. The refusal of Fitgerald to allow Hamilton to be interrogated to enlight en the conscience of the court was in tcrpreted in various ways. Attaches of the district attorney's oflieo are in clined to believe that Hamilton having already stated his opinion to Fitzger aid, the latter deemed it unnecessary to precipitate an argument as to tlfirwaiv ing of piofessional privilege. Think State's Case Weakened The defense seemcj inclined to view that Fitgerald held that Hamilton's evidence could not be taken into con sidcrntion, and that consequently the district attorney's position is materially weakened. Jerome's nfiidavits embraced the opin ions of seven experts who heretofore testified and a statement, by a news paper reporter who has the text of the statement which Thaw issued at the conclusion of the cross examination -of F.v clvn Thaw. Jerome called particular attention to the one signed by Dr. Charles F. Mac Dounld, wlio declares that lie is firmly convinced that Thaw, is sufiforing from paranoia and that while he knew enough to realize the nature and quality of his act when he shot White, ho is now and for some time past has bCe,n incapable of understanding tho proceed iugs against him. Reporter's Affidavit The reportei in his affidavit sets forth the facts connected with Thaw's dra matic nianner of issuing the statement concerning Jerome's cross examination of-lvolyn Thaw. Jeioine occupied most of today in a personal explanation of reasons which hindered him from earlier calling the attention of the court to Thaw's pres cut state of mind. He said that he has long been convinced of the defendant's unsound mind, but ho had no way of legally bringing the matter to .the at tontion of the court until Dr. Hamilton was put on tho staled by the defense.

HIS BRfBERY OF GRAND JUDY m W YET CONFESS Burns Workirjg on AJ)e Ruef, Who Is Breaking Down Denied Former Privileges, HAVE ORDERS TO KILL IF RESCUE IS TRIED Grand Jury Adjourns Until To morrow Without Returning Further Indictments Many Officials Are Examined, By Associated Press. SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., March 21 Tho supremo court today on request of the attorneys of Abraham Ruef dis missed 'Huef's application for a writ of habeas corpus to transfer him from tho custody of Elisor W. J. Biggy to that of Sheriff O'Neill, and to bo taken from tho St. Francis hotel to the county jail. "Ruef," said Biggy, "upon looking up authorities came to tho conclusion that the supreme court would sustain the action of Superior Judgo Dunne in appointing an elisor and to forestall any adverse decision, had the writ dis missed." It leaked out tonight that Ruef late this afternoon paid off three of his at' torueys, Fnirall, Murphy and Short ridge, which revived the report that there is dissension among them and at least one of them, Shortridge, desires to withdraw from the ense. This, however, was denied by Short ridge, who with Fairall disclaimed all knowledge of dissension. Look for Confession Color is lent to the report persistently circulated that Burns is working on Ruef to get him to confess by frequent visits paid by the secret service agent to Ruef and the fact that Burns was closeted with the dethroned poltyicnl boss until 2:30 this .morning. From those who are now guarding Ruef it has been learned that he now realizes the full seriousness of his situation. For two nights there was little sleep for Ruef and ho is said to have moaned, groaned and tossed in bed and the guards asked him if he was ill. Every privilege shown him is impressed on him as having been granted by Burns. If patience and perseverance can accom plish it, it is believed Ruef will con fess. The question of a place of detention for Huef has again arisen. It has been decided to take an apartment in a. pri vate house. Ituef will be taken from the St. Francis in a few days. Perhaps no prisoner in the United States today is so closely guarded as is Ruef. Have Orders to Kill Ruef Burns has six picked men under Big gy to guard him. At night Biggy sleeps in the same room. Two guards on duty with Ruef are constantly on the alert. One man .stands guard in the hall in front of the door and nnother man on duty outside the window. Tn tho event of an attempt at rescue or escape the men have ordeis to kill Ruef. Owing to the entertainment of fears that he might try to escape or an attempt to rescue him be made several privileges which have been enjoyed by Ruef were cut off today. Heretofore 'Huef has tnken daily ex ercise in the narrow halls of tho hotel. This was denied him today and hereaf ter he will not be permitted to leave the loom. All the supervisors wero scon today and emphatically denied that thoy made confessions to tho grand jury. GRAND JURY ADJOURNS UNTIL SATURDAY MORNING SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., March 21.

Shorwin said ho was requested to ox plain tho bookkeeping methods of the company; ho was asked various amounts on Jhc books which were paid to Halsey and declared the accounts snowed jno such sum as $50,000 having been used or paid to the former general agent. Hall under the interrogation of Heney explained his duties as secretary to Halsey, which consisted, he said, of looking after the publicity department and of "gathering data on opposition." Stenographer too Wise Miss Nellie Smith, stenographer to tho attorneys who represented the Home company in obtaining tho franchise from the supervisors, was recalled today and spent over an hour in the grand jury room. She is considered by Heney and Burns to bo ono of the most impor tant witnesses in tho deal by which the Homo company is said to have paid $02, 000 to supervisors through Ruef for the franchise.

GUTS RIS THROAT GOK TO GLOBE Montenegrin Tries to Suicide on Train at Bowie While He Is Temporarily Insane, FIFTY DAYS WITHOUT CONVERSING WITH ANYONE Trying Trip by Sea and Land Gets Best of Him Within a Few Hours of His Journey's End Has Brothers htere, . Probably driven temporarily insane by fifty days on water and rail, during which timo he was unable to converse with anyone, Pedro Saban on his way from Montenegro to Globe, tried to commit suicide within a few hours of his destination. Saban has two brothers in Globe who are employed by the Old Dominion and he was on his way from his native land to join them. Yesterday noon he boarded the train at Bowie for Globe and as the train was getting ready to begin the trip to Globe Saban, who was occupying a seat in the smoker, suddenly drew out his pocket knife, opened the largest blade and started to sever his jugular vein. The knife was dull or Saban would not now be in the county hospital here with a good chance for recovery. Out His Windpipe ' The attention of other passengers in the coach was attracted when Saban began to saw on his throat, and when several of them intervened and took the knife from his hands an ugly cut had already been made, which had sev ered the windpipe. Cloth was secured and improvised bandages bound around the man's throat, from which a stream of blood was flowing. While his wound was being bound up Saban tried to tear open tho cut in his throat and it was necessary to tio his hands and bind him to his seat in order to prevent him from completing the job. On the arrivnl of tho train in Globe Saban was taken tor tho county hospital, where he was. given medical attention. Physicians who at tended him believe he will recover. Give It Out as "Accident" Saban had apparently regained his senses when his brothers met him last evening and their friends gave it out that Saban 's injuries resulted from an accident, although the contrary is known to be a fact. Conductor Sam Shale states that tho man approached him at the depot at Bowie and fell on his knees before him, imploring 'him to do something or other. The conductor could not understand tho man 's tongue and no one could be found who could understand him. It is be lieved that Saban, strange to the cus toms of the country and not having spoken with anyone in his own tongue since ho left his native country" fifty days ago, became temporarily insane.
