New York, Jan 25. There were Ave men ia: the jury box to-day when the trial of Harry K. Thaw for the killing of Stanford' White was re lumed before Justice Fitzgerald. Mrs William T,haw, mother of the de fendant, waa present to-day at the opening of the morning session, hav ing fully recovered from the fatigue and indisposition which kept her in doors yesterday. . She .was . .accom panied by her daughter, Mrs George L. Carnegie, the two having been preceded some minutes .'.by Mrs Evelyn Nesblt Thaw and her constant companion. May McKenzle. The prisoner's wife still wore the plain dark blue suit, trimmed only with velvet cuffs ana collar of the same material, that she has appeared In on every day of the trial. To-day she had discarded her white veil for one of blue chiffon. The effect was to bring out more distinctly the tea tures of her face, which appeared un usually pale. The elder Mrs Thaw was In conventional - black. The Countess of ' Yarmouth' did not at tend the trial to-day owing to a slight cold she has contracted. Ed ward and Josiah Thaw were early In their seats, the only family Absentee other than the countess being George L. Carnegie,, the prisoner's brother , In-law,'- " 1 ' ' ' The five jurors selected during the i first-two days of the trial appear to be men well above the average, in intellect. All seem to be in prosper ous circumstances. Two of the five are apparently: Just above 50 years old. George Pfaff. a hardware deal er, Is the youngest, probably not more than S 4 years old. Charles H. Fecke, the shipping agent. Is possibly 40, and Arthur S. Campbell,' a superin tendent .of telephone construction,' is not more than two years older. .The other jurors are Demlhg B. Smith, a retired manufacturer, the foreman, and Henry Charney, manager of a piano concern. The entire special jury panel is made np of prosperous and substantial looking cltliens." William Rand, the former assist ant district attorney, who prosecuted Kan Patterson at both her trials, was In court to-day and attracted some at tention. His presence had nothing to do with the Thaw case, however. He represented a client who was called to the bar to answer to three Indictments of perjury. The cere mony was brief and the work of se curing the remaining seven jurymen to try the slayer of Stanford White was taken up.

Whether the two had met outside the court room before entering was not generally knows. The former chorus girl assisted her mother-in-law, however. In removing her wraps. Mrs William Thaw just before the trial was opened was handed a tele gram In a night message envelope by her son Joelnh. She opened and read the typewritten message, which ap parently had to do with business af fairs, probably In Pittsburg. The family's attention was dis tracted by the arraignment of Mr Rand's client charged with perjury, when Harry Thaw entered the court room from the door leading to the prisoner's pen. Thaw noticed this and as he passed his mother's chair he reached over with his right hand and grasped both of hers which were clasped about a small gilt leaved book la her lap. She looked ep oslckly and an swered her son's smile. Mrs Harry Thaw gave her prisoner husband an earnest look of greeting and during the examination of the irwt talesman of the da she assumed her custom ary stdtade, leaning well forward la her seat eTtr to catch every answer --- to r r-t tTJor ty L " 7 t lr L Hartrldge, the leading counsel for the defendant. The first taslesman proved to be Walter M. Jackson, a real ' estate broker, who was excused on a sus tained challenge by the people when he declared that he entertained cer tain prejudices which might not make him an Impartial Juror. -- Counsel for ThaW - were Informed to-day that Henry C, Harney, the fifth juror accepted to try Thaw, has acted as a Juror in the case in which Edward Pekarz was convicted of murder in the first degree. Pekars's plea was insanity and several alien ists testified that he was mentally unbalanced when he murdered a wo man from whom he rented rooms. The verdict was guilty and Pekarz was sent to Sing Sing, where his sen tence was commuted to life impris onment. It Is believed that Thaw's counsel were unaware of these facts when they accepted Mr Harney yes terday. . . - When court adjourned nt one o'clock tbls afternoon for a recess, one more juror, the sixth..

I do not personally care to make the appointments of county commissioners, for I have no political debts to pay and no personal friends to favor. I would not object at all If the general assembly should deem it wise next Tuesday , to take from the table any resolutions there to appoint county commissioners and pass them. "But I am Armly of the opinion that the law should be changed to take effect two years hence to give the governor the appointment of the county commissioners. It Is not a selfish ' nor a personal recommenda tion nor one urged by me for in creased patronage. I thorpughly ap preciate the courtesy shown me In both branches of the general assem ly In postponing action last Wednes day." . . MANY PEOPLE SICK. Inspector Callahan. However, Says , City is Pretty Free from Disease. Although many are flying and the number on the sick list Is large, San itary Inspector Cnllnhnn says the city never had fewer cases of con tageous disease, there being but one of diphtheria and. two or three of scarlet fever. This Is creditable to the health authorities, and perhaps it might not be amiss to Include the de partment of public works, for It is admitted that the close luspectlon of the water sheds has contributed In no small way to warding off scarlet fever in this town. ' in"-different places all over "the county scarlet fer er Is making heavy inroads on chil dren, and all attribute the cause to the water supply. There I a big epi demic atScranton, Pa, und it appears that the germs entered the homes of the victims In the water used, for do mestic purposes. The orlglual source of the trouble Is laid at tbe door of tramps, who made a practice of do ing their washing In the reservoir, such a thing would be almost impos sible here, owing to. regular--tours made along the banks of the reservoir by men- paid to look out for just such sources ' of contamination ' as are said to have worked such hard ships in Scranton and other- cities.

II GETS REPORT Ioferstate Commerce Commis sion Has Something to Say About Coal Carriers WHAT THEY SUGGEST Carriers Should Be Requested to to Make Public the System Under WhiehCar Distribulioa is Carried On. - Washington, Jan 25. Tbe inter state commerce commission to-day transmitted to congress its first re port on Its investigation on discrim inations and monopolies under the Joint resolution of congress of March 7, 1906, known as the Tillman-Gillespie resolution. The report deals with bituminous coal carried east of the Ohio river, and In territory bounded on tbe south by tbe Norfolk and Western railway, on the north by Canada and on the east by the Atlantic seaboard The roads in volved are the Norfolk and Western, Chesapeake and Ohio, Baltimore and Ohio, Pennsylvania, Buffalo, Roches ter and Pittsburg, Beech Creek divis ion of the New York Central and Hudson River; Pittsburg, Shawmut and Northern, Buffalo and Susque hanna, and West Virginia Central and Pittsburg ' (now the Western Maryland). The report says that all of the above companies own, directly or by stock ownership In other companies, large Interests In coal lands. The report is practically a sum mary of the information gleaned as a result of the Investigation thus framed together with the presenta tion of facts pertinent to the general inquiry. The report concludes with these recommendations for legisla tive action: "First, that every common carrier engaged in interstate transportation of coal be required to make public the system of car distribution In ef fect upon Its railway and tbe several divisions thereof, showing how tbe equipment for coal service Is di vided between the several divisions of Its road and how the same In times when the supply of equipment does not equal the . demand Is divided among the several mining operations along such a road and that the car rier further be required to publish at stated periods and at each divis ional headquarters upon Us line of road the system of car distribution In effect and the actual distribution made to each mining operation under such system. "Second, that where the capacity of the mines Is the basis for the dis tribution of equipment, a fair. Just and equitable ratiug of the mines lie required, and that provision be made for the representation of owners of the mine at the rating thereof. "That, that after a reasonable time carriers engaged In Interstate com merce he prohibited from using in dividual' or "private cars for the handling of coal traffic. "Fourth, that carriers engaged In Interstate commerce bef orbldden af ter reasonable time to own or have Interest, directly or Indirectly. In nny operated coal properties, except such as are exclusively for their own fuel supply, and that ownership either di rectly or Indirectly, by officers or em ployes of cofmon carriers of any coal properties or sny of the stock of coal companies along the line of road by which they are employed, be forbid den." A summary Is given showing, as developed during the Investigat-on. the Interest of railroad officers In cor porations or companies operating com I mine or engaged In coal traffic. The details of this Information largoly have already been published. The report says that "a serious and dangerous condition' has been creat ed along the lines of the Pennsylva nia railroad by rason of these prac tices which "no one appearing before the commission attempted to Justify." Notice Is taken of an executive or. der Issued by the president of the Pennsylvania Railroad company on July 6 but requiring all officers snd employes to divest themselves of any Interest, direct or indirect. In stock of any coal companies or firms. As to the Baltimore A Ohio rail road tbe report says: "The evidence shows that ten offi cials of this company own aa aggre gate of 7.178 shares of stock of coal companies, par value $100. and that theee companies have their plants on sad are doing business along the lines of the Baltimore a Ohio." fader the general head of con tract la the form of trust or con spiracy In restraint of trade the re port touches upon the various rail way and freight associations la the territory covered by the investigation aad says It was apparent to the com mission that "the associations were need for the pwrpoae of agreeing no on aad maintaining freight rates, and that the distribution of toanage to the several roads waa oaly main- tailed la so far as the same was ac- eosspl'abed by flxlsg sgrsed freight rates."

On account of tbe nature . of the cause and that cutting ice seems a doubtful subject these days. It was understood that the temporary ' in junction should either be disposed of in a few days or made permanent. Hunt and Pierce appeared for the City Ice company and ; Russell for the Zwelbels. It seems that the defendants have been accustomed to cut ice for their own uses on Lakewood for years nud tbe City Ice company did not object, but when tbe defendants built large ice bouses and prepared to fill them up with ice, thereby giving every In dication of becoming a business com petition tbe City lee company had the Injunction Issued. It was agreed for the purposes of this hearing that the defendants bold tbe title to tbe land under the water, near their premises, by tbe deed giv en by Daniel Brown to James h. and William II. Scovlll in 184!) and pur chased by the defendants. It was also agreed that tbe plaintiffs hold the title for the present owners of tbe pond, tbe Great Brook Manufacturing com pany, to cut and harvest lee from the pond. The questioif was one of law more than fact, and the lawyers had not got warm to their subject at press hour. Charles B. Everett, president and treasurer of the City Ice company was then on the stand. THE BURNS CLl'B. The Place to Enjoy Yourself To-night . , Is at City Hall.

The re port continues: "The associations having failed to accomplish the desired purposes the Pensylvanla Railroad Co determined te buy sufficient of the stocks of the Chesapeake and Ohio. Baltimore and Ohio and Norfolk and Western rail roads so that acting with others It might control the policy of these roads. The commission concludes, aside from the question whether the Pennsylvania Railroad Co had a ma jority of the stock of the other rail road companies mentioned, except the New Tork Central, that as a mat ter of fact the Baltimore and Ohio. Chesapeake aad Ohio. Norfolk A Western and Philadelphia A Read ing railroads were practically con trolled by the Pennsylvania and the New Tork Central A Hndeoa River railroads, aad that the result was to DrartfcallT abolish substantial com- petition between the carriers of coal la the territory under consideration."
