MEMBERS BEING CALLED BACK Secretary Wilson ,Wnll In Iowa Will Make Severn! Speeches for Senator Allison and Cos arresamaa Hepbnrn. (From a Staff Correspondent.) WASHINGTON, May 25. 8pclal Tele gram.) While members of the house were standing about In groups today discussing the probability of adjournment the ser-geant-at-arms .was sending "hurry back" messages to thirty or forty.representatlves, who sre at home looking after their poli tical fences. These messages grew out of a conference of leader yesterday and last night upon tha subject of currency legis lation and Speaker Cannon, realises the necessity for action on the part of the republican party looking to the passage of some remedial legislation affectlrar the cur rency. If things work out according to the pro gram adopted today the house will pass an amended form of the Vreeland bill with n emergency currency clause sufficiently broad and comprehensive to take care of any future money stringency like that of October last and give the banks power to deposit certain classes of bonds In order to withdraw money from the treasury to counteract any threatened stringency. This bill will be put up to the senate and it Is thought with such force will be given the measure that senste will not dare refuse the demand ot the country for such legis lation. In the meantime all auguments having failed to get the house leaders to set a definite time for an ajournment. Impatient senatora who are anxious to get away from Washington are now hopeful that the hot rays of old Sol will make Speaker Cannon and his associates realize that It is time to quit. It Is, however, a good bet that con gress will ont adjourn until very late in the week and It may run over into next week. Where Nebraskans Stand. In this connection It can with truth be said that Judge Norrls ot the Fifth Ne braska :Ustrlct, and Earnest M. Pollard of the First, have labored early and late, not only, for currency legislation, but for a publicity bill and for anti-Injunction legis lation. From the beginning of the session Judge Norrls in particular has worked for these measures. This Is also true of Mr. Pollard and true of the entire Nebraska delegation, who have not allowed anything to Interfere with their votes and labors for the things which President Roosevelt has earnestly suggested be done before the present sessions of congress ceases. Wilson to Seak In lows. Secretary Wilson of the Agricultural de partment will arrive in Iowa tomorrow, having left for the west on Saturday, spend ing today In Chicago.

' Judge Norrls, unlike the rest of his col leagues of the house delegation, will leave for home Immediately after the adjourn ment of congress for the reason that one of his daughters Is 111 with mumps, and it Is expected his other daughters will be af flicted In the same way. It is thought Judge Norrls will leave for home about July 1. George Doane Keller of Omaha, who was nominated by Senator Brown for a cadet ship at West Point, has tendered his resig nation. Mr. Keller passed a successful ex amination and would have entered school In the fall. No reason is assigned, however, for his action. Henry F. Schuder has been appointed regular and C. F. Hagedorn substitute tural carriers for Route 1, at Brunswick, Neb. PROCEEDINGS OF THE SENATE Conference Report of Sundry Civil Bill Agrd To. WASHINGTON, May 26. An effort to annihilate time by dilatory tactics, with out making progress on any legislation ex cept that Involved the conference re ports, was the chief occupation of the sen ate today under the leadership of Mr. Al drlch. The attempt was so successful that the net result In the way of accomplishment of the day's session was the adoption of the conference, report on the sundry civil ap propriation bill. Throughout the day Mr. Beverldge was busy in an effort to get a vote on the bill compensating government employes for in juries received in the line of duty, but after the debate had progressed far enough to develop various objetcions to the language of the bill, Mr. Hale arose to say he had Information from the house that no action could be expected there today on the con ference report on the public buildings bill, and until that measure should be disposed of the deficiency appropriation bill could not be perfected, after which he moved an adjournment. Mr. Beverldge resorted to some tactics to keep the senate in session to consider his bill, but Mr. Hale, amid laughter, remarked that "there are some things the senate can do without the consent of the senator from Indiana." and Insisted upon a vote upon his motion. Tha senate, at 4:40 o'clock, adjourned. Firemen to Hold Tonrnament. SIOUX FALLS. S. D., May 25.-(Speclal.)

COURT FINDS THAW INSANE Decision Given Under Which Re Muit Stay in Asylum. JUDGE GIVES BEAS0N FOR ACT Find Prisoner Menace to Society, Holding; He Did Not Show Sanity in Trial When Possible. rOUGHKEEFSTE, N. Y.. May 25 -Harry K. Thaw, the slayer of Stanford White, will not be released from the lunatic asy lum. Thl I th decision reached by Jus tice Morschauser of the supreme court In an opinion filed early this morning In the matter of Thaw ppltcation for release on a writ of habeas corpus. Both points brought up by Thaw's at torney are decided against him. The Jus tice declares that Thaw I now Insane and hould not be allowed at large, and he fur ther declare that the commitment to the lunatic asylum by Justice Dowllng after the last trial of the case wa entirely legal. Prisoner Reslarned to Fate. Thaw ha accepted apparently with resignation th decision of Supreme Court Justice Morschauser that he Is still Insane nd that the Interests of the publlo will be best served by denying him liberty. Pend ing th signing of the paper of recommit ment, which probably will not bo done before a week from next Saturday. Thaw will occupy Sheriff Chander' ulte In the County building her. In the meantime an effort will be made by Thaw' attorney to Indue District At torney Jerome to consent to the commit ment of the prisoner to one ot the state hoepltals other than Matteawan. It Is said that in the event of Mr. Jerome giv ing his consent to such a change no appeal. will be taken from Justice Morschauser s decision. Even if an appeal were taken"1t could not be argued before fall. Decision of the Conrt. Justice Morschauser' decision In part 1 a follows: A writ of habeas corpus was allowed by which Harty K. Thaw was directed to be produced In court. In the petition it is slleged that Thew was illegally imprisoned fcnd restrained of his liberty )y Amos T. IfaltVr, acting superintendent ot Matteawan Etute Hospital for the Insane. Thaw's detention was attacked upon the grounds: FirstThnt he Is now sane. Seoond-That the act undr the provisions of which he was committed and detained Is unconstitutional and the court was with out Jurisdiction to lsaue the order of com mitment and such order was null and void. I am satisfied from the evidence adduced before me that the mental condition ot Harry K. Thaw has not changed and I find that he la now Insane and that It is so manifest as to mako it unsafe for him to be at large. Thaw had the opportunity on the trial to Introduce evidence of his mental condi tion at that time, which he did not do. He should have known that the adjudication of the court would follow a verdict of not guilty by reason of Insanity ; he was repra sented by able counsel, who urged th Jury befor whom he was tried upon a charge of homicide to acquit him because of his Insanity. Statute Not Passed Upon, I have made a careful examination of the authorities and I do not find that this statute has ever been passed upon by any of. the courts in this state. It has been in existence and operation for many years without question, and It Is the duty of thi court to presume In favor of the validity of the statute until Its violation of the constitution Is established beyond all rea sonable doubt, and upon such a determina tion the result which msy follow from one construction or another Is always a potent factor and Is sometime In and of Itself conclusive. In construing this statute It should be borne in mind that the ssfety and welfare of the community is of more Importance than the freedom of the individual. The relator claims that the statute does rot provide a method by which Thaw can be discharged. Section 99 of the Insanity law provides; "Any Inmate, not a convict, held upon an order of a court or Judfre In a criminal proceeding mav be discharged therefrom upon the superintendent's certificate of re covery, made to and approved by such court or Judge." GREEN "PILLS AROUSE IRE O,oack Nostrum Thrown in Yard and Residents Wonld Like to Find the Man. Some makers of pale green pill, who re gard the healthfulnesa of th community as a menace to their prosperity, are scat tering sample packages of their goods in the front yards of Omaha residences. Lit erature" of th almanac variety proclaim In four languages the Wonderful cureallat lveness of th pills, assuring th prospec tive consumer that each and all the III flesh 1 heir to will vanish when th pale green pellet enter the system. When the (ample were found in th yard otjiomea near th business district much Indignation wa aroused among parent, whose children were found In pos session of the package. On child wa discovered in the act of eating the pills and measures were Instantly taken to pre' vent possible Injury. Fortunately no barm resulted. The neighbor md every effort to find the dlstrbuter of the samples, but he could not be located, neither did the package contain th nam of any local druggist to whom th outrage could be traced. Had th dlstrbuter been caught with the goods he would have received a few lasting Impressions ot the indignation of at least one lusty father. In this particular neighborhood, a few yeara ago, a family lost a child by precisely similar means and the memory of that sor rowful tragedy whetted th desire to catch and punish tha author ot th lsst "out rage. One of the sampl pills which rolled Into a small hole in the sidewalk ot one home was dissolved by Sunday' rain and left on th (tone a blue-green blotch a large a a footprint in a mudpuddle. Th color almost harmonized with the sur rounding lawn, but could hardly be con sidered attractive a an Interior decoration for Infant.

Some of the member at a. meting Mon day noon at the Commercial club rooms expressed a deslr to utlllx both grounds. Rev. George Eoccher, dean of Trinity ca theiital, tircd It as his Opinion that if th commute showed a progressive spirit and also an Inclination to broaden out there would be no difficulty in raising suf ficient fund to' keep both playground up to th high standard set by th committee lr l year at the ground on Twentieth and Harney street. A commute consisting of W. H. David fun, . Superintendent of public Instruction; George E. West, Kev. George A. Boecher ;md Kev. Frank L.

Henry Wegworlh Indignantly denKd that ho was a suspicious character. He had been arrested while peddling a box of cigars. In police court he demanded to know whether It wa a crime to conduct a Jobbing business; whether In this rapidly growing and expanding commonwealth It was not praiseworthy to be the captain of Industry behind a great enterprise. It was pointed out to him that he had neither otflce nor manufactory, neither retail store nor Jobbing building nor warehouse. He further demanded whether It was a crime to be without these. Have rot men who are today owner of vast department stores started with their entire stocks on their backs? Have not men who are wealthy brewers started by peddling their wares in a wheelbarrow? Might not he some day be the head of the great house Of Henry Wegworth & Co., wholesale and retail dealer In fine to baccos? It was true,' and the court decided that A man of Wegworth's persuasive powers might become a captain of Industry. Ho was discharged.
