R. J. Clark agreed with Mi. Macdonald as to the futility of mere criticism,
lie bell-trod that the decisive factor in

resentment aroused hy the attempted
Intrusion of the Ottawa machine, and
thnt Canada Is ready to overthrow that
machine as soon as an appeal on a great
principle is mnde to the electors. He
(bought there was enough ln the conduct or the Laurier government for the
last five years to convict it of deliberately seeking to weaken the Imperial
tie, and to abandon British Ideals In
public life. He contended that opposition to thai movement by an enlarged
national policy wou d he the natural and
correct poslt'on for the historic Conservative party.

new Keyhani docks, which complete the
most importunt docks yards scheme of
the British Empire, were opend loday
by the Prince of Wales with considerable ceremony. The large gathering of
warships in honor of the occasion were
decorated with bunting and the harbor

Evelyn Thaw Unconscious
of Wrong
Life oi Child-Wife Told Under Cross-
Eximinition���Was Often Under
Influence of Wine.
When court opend this morning a
long line was waiUng at the door. Thaw
entered the court immediately after the
jury without waiting to be called to the
bar. His hair was crushed and bis manner was eager and nervous. He carried
a large pad of paper and after taking
his seat proceeded to make notes ol his
wire's testimony. When Judge Fitzgerald bad taken his place on the bench
there waB a conference among the attorneys and It was decided there would
be no session tomorrow, Washington's
birthday. When Mrs. Thaw was called
to the s ami she gave bet* usual glance
at her husband and smiled, then she
glanced io Justice Fitzgerald aud smiled
with a little buw al him, but the justice
failed to notice.
Mr. Jerome called Mrs. Thaw's attention to her closing testimony ot yesterday in order that she might pick up
tbe siring of the story.
"Did you couilnue to believe all women were unchaste as Stanford White
told you until you talked with Thaw in
Paris ln 1903?"
"Yes, sir," repled Mrs. Thaw meekly.
" Do you know a place called the
"Where is It?"
"Somewhere in Paris."
"Have vou ever ���'������en there?"
"What sore of a place Is it?"
"A cafe."
"Is it a repttUible place?"
"I don't know."
"Did It seem reputable to you?"
"I don't know, people were sitting
about, eating.*'
"And somebody dancing?"
"1 believe so."
"Was It 2 o'clock In the morning?"
"Did you see a Cakewalk?"
"No. I think there was a Russian
"Was it before or after Thaw pro
posed that you went to the Deadrit?"
"Was it in 1903?"
"No, I think It was during the second
trip In 1904"
"How many times were you al the
"I think only once."
"With whom did you go?"
"With Mr. Thnw and Mr. Hubert, a
thsatrical man, and another man."
"I will whisper a name to you and
asl; If the man was there."
Mr. Jerome whispered and Mrs. Thaw
shook her head.
"Were there any ladles in the party?"
"I think there were, with Mr. Hubert."
"Did you see many ladles of the demi-
at the Deadrit?" began Mr. Jerome.
Mr. Delmas objected. "1 nm using tbe
witless owu expression," said Mr.
Jerome. "1 never said lhat," ejaculated
Mis. Thaw Indignantly.
"Didn't you UBe the expression in a
letter?" Again Mr. Delmus objected and
was sustained.
"Don't you know what 1 mean?" asked
Mr. Jerome of the witness, "when 1 say,
did you see many of the bunch from the
tenderloin there?"
"1 think so."
"Have you any doubt?"
"No." J
"Do you know Miss Winchester?"
"Did you see her do a Cakewalk at tlie
Deadrit that night?"
"I den't remember."
"In whoso hand-writing is this
letter?" asked Mr. Jerome, handing her
several written sheets.
"Mr. Thaw's I think."
"Have you any doubt on lt?"
"I don't think I have."
Mr. Jerome then offered the letter ln
evidence. Mr. Delmas objected that it
wits a mutual ltter and the date was not
"llo you know of your own knowledge
when this wus written?"
"1 have not the slightest Idea."
" Will you note the ptigelng ot that
"Did not yon and Mr. Thaw, while in
Paris, write joint letters to rriends, you
writing part und he thc resl?"
" I cannot Bay postlvely, very likely
we did."
"Had you changed your opinion In re-
gard to Ibe general chasity of women?"
' "1 had."
"Before the time you left Paris, had
you any appreciation lhat meretricious
relation between men and women were
Immoral and wrong?"
"Not until after my talk with Mr.
"Before that you did not believe It
"Oh, yi'K, I knew people said lt was
"Did you think it very indellvate and
'That is all."
"lu Paris lt was Impressed upon you
that White had done you a terrible
"In a way."
"Had you come to a full understand
Ing of the Infamous character of White's
"Yes, but not so much as I have now."
"Yet It was this that Induced your renunciation of Thaw's great love?"
Mr. Delmas objected to what he
thought a sneer lu the question and was
"Did you refuse Thaw solely because
of the occurence with White?"
"Because 1 bad been found out."
"Who told you you had been caught?"
*%*riends of White."
"So it was not of the occurence, but
because you had been found out?"
"lt was both together,"
"You felt that a most heinous wrong
had been done you at the time of your
ravishment? Outraged every maidenly
instinct In you, did'nt It?"
"It did and that ls why I quarreled
with White."
"Y'ou were bitter against White
when you told Thaw?"
"Not Intensely then, not until Mr.
Thaw made me realize It?"
"You remember writing to White. Did
you still feel bitter against him?"
"It was a feeling ���vf enmity agalnBt
your raviBher?"     '*?
"I wouldn't say enhsity, It was hostility against him for Otis one thing and
subsequent things."
"What subsequent tidngs?"
"Things with White."
"Y'ou still were thinking of |these
things when you wrote White from
"Yes, and of his extraordinary personality."
She added that she wrote to White
because: "My mother would give me no
peace until 1 did it. She said I was ungrateful to White and things like that."
"Had you any occasion to doubt the
chasity of your own mother?"
"I never thought of my mother In that
way."  (Indignantly)
"Did you tell your mother of your ravishment while abroad?"
"How did you know White's friends
knew of your relations with him?"
"One of them saw me with him at
the Kast 22nd street studio."
"Was there impropriety there?"
"So you continued to maintain relations with White?"
"Y'cs. for a time."
The name of the man who had seen
her at the studio was whispered to the
counsel, the court and the jury.
"Did you tell Harry Thaw about these
subsequent relations with White?"
"Can you fix dates as to these subsequent events?"
"How did Uils man know of your relations with White."
"He saw me in the bed room under
the studio."
"And this was about a month after
your ravishment with drugs?"
"How long did the relations
"Not alter January, 1902."
"And on these occasions you con
"I did not."
"It was  done by violence?"
"Were yon drugged again?"
'Did vou have too much wine?"
Mr. Jerome continued to press the
witness for details. Afler several intimate questions he asked her why she
did not tell her mother.
"I was afraid, he made me promise
never to tell her." Continuing Mrs.
Thaw admitted that White gave her
wine and that she was slightly intoxicated. The witness was losing her sell-
possesslon and finally broke down and
cried.   Thaw kept his head in his hands,
"We   might    take a recess, the wit-
ns'Bs seems  ,"  Mr. Jerome began.
Mr. Delmas objected, "If there Is to be
a recess It's not to be on account of the
witness, I think she will be able to go
on." Mrs. Thaw wiped her eyes and
sualghtened up. Mr. Jerome proceeded.
"When you returned to your home
you felt you had been wronged?"
"Were, you under the Influence of liquor then?"
Mrs. Thaw related Beveral similar Incidents. In each case she waB sllghtly
Intoxlcated and yielded unwillingly. She
denied having consulted Dr. Carlton
Flint with Jack Barrymore In 1901 or
1902. but says she had gone to physicians with Thaw and White. She said
she was told that the operation at the
school was for apendlcitls When she
told Thaw of this ln Paris, Thnw expressed himseir rorcjhly and characterized White accordingly. Thc acts
seemed horrible to her then.
Reverting to her letter to White
written from Boulogne she repented
thnt her mother had made her write.
She had not told her about her ravishment. "You would rather write to this
gnat brute, this monster, as you believe hlm, Ihan tell her?" remarked Mr.

Steamship Berlin Wrecked on Dutch Coast
Driven on Sand Bu by Gale���Pounded to Pieces in Sight of Rescuers
���Only One Survivor.
London, Feb. 21���The Rotterdam mall
steamer Berlin from England with 141
passengers and crew, was wrecked off
the Hook of Holland at the entrance of
the river leading to Rotterdam shortly
before 6 o'clock this morning and with
the exception of one person, all on board
perished. A terrific southwestern gale
was blowing right ln shore and drove
lbe steamer on a sandbank close to the
northern jetty as she was trying to enter the new waterway. Heavy seas
fluickly pounded the vessel to pieces.
She broke in two, her forepart sinking
immediately while the doomed passengers and crew could be seen for a brief
space of time clustered on the after
part. Then the latter slipped off the
ledge and disappeared in the mountainous water. Tugs and lifeboats promptly
put out to the assistance of the Berlin,
but the violence of the gale and the
heavy seas made ls Impossible to approach the wreck, and the helpless spectators saw the steamer break up and the
crew and passengers washed away without being able to render the slightest
assistance. One man, an Englishman,
was saved. He was unconscious when
dragged out of the water and had not regained consciousness when he was carried to a hotel In the neighborhood. By
11 o'clock ln the morning 25 bodies had
been washed ashore.
Rotterdam, Feb. 21.���A disastrous
shipwreck, attended with great loss of
life, occurred today off the North Pier
of the Hook of Holland, when the Great
Eastern Railway company's steamer
Berlin bound from Harwich to the Hook
of Holland, was lost. All on board, 141
people in all, of whom 91 were passengers were drowned.
' The wreck occurred at 5 o'clock this
morning during a terrific southwesterly
gale, the steamer striking the north jetty while trying to enter the new waterway at the Hook of Holland and was
broken ln two forward and sank while
thc passengers and crew gathered aft
and vainly attempted to get out the lifeboats. One person was saved and 25
bodies have washed ashore. The Berlin was a BrltlBh steamship, commanded
by Captain Ablett, and was over 1775
tons.   The ship was built In 1894.
I-ondon, Feb. 21.���The Great Eastern
Railway company officially continued
the news of the loss of the steamer Berlin with all on board off the coast ot
Holland. The Berlin carried passengers and crew lo the number of 141.
Among those drowned ate 19 members
of the German Opern company wwho
had just concluded their season at Convent Garden. Arthur Herbert, one of
the King's messengers, who was journeying to the continent, was nlso lost.
The manager of the Convent Garden
theatre confirmed tho statement that 19
members of the German Opera left last
night on the Bteamer Berlin.
"So far as we know." be said, "these
did not Include any of the star artists
as tho party was made up of members
of the chorus returning to Iheir homes.
They made arrangements directly with
the railway company so that we are not
yet able to get an exact list of their
"The dlsusler has aroused the most
intense alarm among the other members
of the company owing to the friendships
and relations existing."
Loudon. Feb. 21.���The Berlin left Harwich at 10 o'clock last night upon th?
arrival of the London train with the
greater number of passengers who aub
seqttently lost their lives. The steam*!'
should have reachd the Hook of Holland
nt G o'clock this morning and would
have proceeded ror Rotterdam. A great
gale wns blowing in the North Sea
when the Berlin started, but the
weather was no worse than on the previous night when similar vessels mnde
the trip without mishap. As the Berlin
was entering the wateway at the entrance of the river, however, she appeared to becnm'si unmanageable on account cf the force of the wind and was
driven ashore. The alarm was given
and lifeboats Trom the shore proceeded
to the assistance of the stricken steam*
er. but the seas were so high that the
boms were unable to approach.   The
i.It boat men had to stay helpless while
the steamer pounded until she broke ln
two. Every soul on board waB carried
down. She apparently struck aboul
amidships, as her forepart broke or and
sank Immediately, while her afterpart
could be seen for a considerable time
The waterway In which tbe disaster
occurred is a new une on the north side
of which Is tbe pier and railroad station. The sleamer must have heen within a few minutes of tielng up after her
rough passage across Ihe Nortb Sea
when she wus overtaken hy the disaster.
Land was but a few yards uway and.
but for the rough weather, those on
hoard the Berlin could have been rescued without difficulty, especially as the
watiyway Is navigable at al ltlmes.
The Berlin was a steel steamer, only
12 years old, and popular with the travelling public to the north of Europe. In
summer she usually was crowded with
passengers, but at this time of the year
the average was about as it was laat
night, the number equally divided between first aud second class. One of
the Inspectors of the railroad who saw
the Bteamer off at Liverpool Street
Station, said last night that he thought
there were more first class than secand-
class passengers, most of them being
commercial men or persons having professional business engagements on the
continent, or Inhabitants of the continent returning home from business
trips to Great Britain.
Much difficulty is being experienced
ln obtaining the names of the passengers, as the tickets were purchased
from many agencies in London and
other cities, while some of the travellers may have had reuturn tickets. The
only names the company Is sure of are
those of passengers who secured reserved berthB and the company's agents
are heing asked to send ln Immediately
to headquarters the names of all such
personB. The number totaled 50, were
mostly Englishmen from Harwich. The
officers were: Captain Precious, First
Officer C. Morsley, Second Officer J.
Whatt, Chlet Engineer Bennan; four assistant engineers and four stewardesses.
Rotterdam, Feb. 21.���The agentB of
the wrecked steam Berlin say that although they are not positive regarding
the numbers, they believe that the vessel carried 120 passengers and a crew
of 60 officers and men.
Important Land Transfer! Announced���

Grand Forks. Feb. 21.���Mr. Reed, a
capitulist, formerly a resident of Alabama, who is an uncle of Fred Reed,

roborated the above statements regard
Ing Mr. Reed, and also statod that with
his experience of over 23 years as a
rmit grower he felt confident that the

Mr. McKenchle, of Portland cement
Fame, came down from the upper North
Fork district yesterday where he has
been for the past few weeks on mining
business. Mr. McKenchle was the original locator of several locations of
marl, the chief constituent in making
Portland cement, which locations he dls
covered within the city limits a few
woeks ago; he then Interested certain
residents of Grand Forks ln his discovery and together they staked out a
considerable area of marl land, which
they are now holding. Mr. McKecnle

sale of the Dan Morrison ranch of 160
acres to Max Runts for a sum reported

suited for the growing of fruit trees
and strawberry plants, which the owner
proposes to make a specialty of cultivating.
Slocan and Upper Arrow Lakes Free
from  Ice���Try for Burton.
The Interruption of C. P. R. Traffic In
Rootenay by reason of Ice on the navigable waters Is at an end for this sea
Capt. J. C. Gore, superintendent of
inland navigation, states today that thc
Slocan lake Is now entirely free form
ice and there is open water from Ar
rowhead to Nakusp.
Below Nakusp. however, there ts still
a great deal of Ice. Capt. Gore will
make an effort next week to break
through as far as Burton City. He has
so far been prevented from making such
an attempt by the necessity for keeping every steamer and barge available
for keeping open the course from Arrowhead to Nakusp, failure to do which
would have severed connections wltb
the main line.
Laurier Says He Retired
Very Eariy
Debate on Minister's Illness Provokes
Curious Futures���Ro Sympathy Required.
Ottawa, Feb. 20.���R. L. Borden
brought up the case of Hon. Charles
Hyman, minister of public works, ln tbc
house. He called attention to the fact
tbat the first announcement of Mr.
Hyman's recovery and withdrawal of
his resignation as minister was made to
the Liberal club in London, Ont, several days before lt was made known to
the house.
Another singular fact was that Mr.
Hyman made an Informal resignation
In November. This resignation remained ineffective until last week,
when the fresh document duly witness
ed by two citizens of London reached
the speaker. Mr. Borden had been informed tbat these two London gentlemen had sot keen away from Ottawa
since Mr, Hyman left. He waa also
told that Mr. Hyman had not been ln
Ontario since he departed. When did
these witnesses see Mr. Hyman sign
the paper? It was also remarkable that
Mr. Hyman had been quite actively enjoying himself In California when he
was represented to tie unable even to
read a telegram from the nremier.
There were many things to explain
and Mr. Borden thought It waa time to
clear the matter up.
Sir Wilfrid declared that he had no
Information further than he had given.
He could not explain the absent signatures but thought it probable that Mr.
Ilyman had written to two London
friends, who knew his handwriting and
were prepared to certify to his slgna
ture. If, however, there waa any doubt
whether Mr. Hyman's signature was
legal Sir Wilfrid would agree that be-'
fore the writs were isaued the matter
*?hou'd be referred to the privileges
committee. For himself the premier
declared that he had received no direct
message from Mr. Hyman from the time
he went away until he wrote, withdraw
Ing bis resignation. As to the suzges
lon that Mr. Hyman's Illness was nc*
genuine, he would say that he had seer
the report of spies sent to watch whs*
time he rose, when ho went fo b"d
when and what he ate. Sir Wilfrid
thought this was bad taste. Further, he
was willing to accept this reeort as
proof that Mr. Hyman was 111. The spy
said that Mr. Hyman went to bed at
ha'f-past eight. Every one who kne*'
Mr. Hyman woud agr-se that Charles
Hyman was not well when he retires at
lhat hour.���(Long continued laughter
esnecia'Iv on tbe opposition side.)
Sir Wilfrid Laurler went on to say
that Mr. Hyman undoubtedly suffered
from nervous nrostratlon before he went
awav. For this lllnesB the cure was
mental reBt and physical exercise.
W. H. Bennett (East Slmcoe.) referred to the events which occurred before
Mr. Hyman's departure. There was no
sign of the minister's illness In October,
when he was In Elgin taking part in fhe
election campaign and promising public
works Shortly afterwards he was In
North Bruce Inspecting sites of proposed public works preparatory to another
bye-olectlon. True, Mr. Hyman did not
stay in Bruce till election time.      ,
Before the campaign ended the Toronto police began the Investigation Into the conspiracy by virtue of which Mr.
Hyman waB elected. When those facta
came out Mr. Hyman ceased to be active as a campaigner.
This business was left to Mr. Aylesworth, who took occasion to tell the
electors of Bruce that Mr. Hyman had
no reason to resign hla seat,
Meanwhile Tom Lewis, a notorious
Liberal election operator fled to Detroit. He learned, however, that he
might be extradited and so came back.
When Lewis reached Canada the newspapers announced that of the flnt per
sons to greet htm and shake hand* with
him was this nervous wreck, Charles
Hyman. After a short consultation with
his friend, Mr. Hyman went on in hla
private car.
Next the nervous Invalid was heard
from Nov. 6, on which date he took a
party of con-genial friends to New York
to witness the state elections. No doubt
he then carried out hla leader's report
as to his hour for retiring at nlghta.���
Mr. Bennett went on to say that Mr.
Hyman's friends and campaigners In
London did not appear to regard Um aa
a sick man, but publicly it seemed to
be the intention of hla friends to contest the London election on sympathy.
Mr. Bennett held that such sympathy
for Mr. Hyman himself and for the government waa misplaced.
After H. H. Miller, of Grey, had
spoken the aubjact wu dropped.

It is impossible but lo admire tbe
perseverance with which France pursues her determination to separate the
church and state. In less Catholic
countries than France it Is difficult lo
Imagine tin- situation. Only close students of history can appreciate what
musl be the nature of the struggle
which Is being curried on. The past
spirit of Ihe centuries during which Unchurch has maintained her supremacy
and the growing spirit of republiclsm
and consequent freedom ure, and must
be, Irreconcilably at war.
The church which is essentially and
naturally a pullantirbptc institution
makes a serious mistake in allying herself with the stale. When she makes
herself dependent upon ihe state or the
state dependent upon herself the mistake is Hiii] more serious. The relinquishment and abrogation of the historic
power and prestige of the church of
Rome in France is as Irresponsible as
the progress of civilisation. The ideals
of the founder ol' lhe Christian church
were e*i fur divorced front union of
church and state us can be conceived.
There may have been hislorlc or incidental considerations which led up to
the situation in Fiance and Italy, with
some other countries Included In the
category, bul the time has come when
the very genius of Christianity as well
as lhat of statesmanship will demand a
revision of the terms of relationship.
While it is nol to be expected tliat thc
authoritks of the church will tamely accept the situation in France we cannot
but admire the determination with
which the statesmen of that republic
have resolved to fight the issue to a
finish. Whatever may be the temporary
excitements of the contest there can be
no doubt that the French nation will
come to see things in a rational light
and on the whole the temper of the
people may be trusted to arrive at safe
Because the issue has formed so large
and important a part of tbe press despatches during recent weeks we make
this reference to the subject. There Is
a force In nature impelling men and
nations to the deeds which make for
progress and at the present time that
force seems to be largely expended ln
France. If all men could be philosophers and could govern their lives according to the facts which nature seems to
flaunt there would be many more wise
men In the world than there are in evidence todav.
Tlie province of Nova Scotia is adopt-
ini,- a system of technical education In
lhe curriculum of the public schools. In
doing so Bhe is Belting an example
which sooner or later will have to be
followed by the other provinces of tho
Dominion. The educational system in
vogue In the parlous provinces of Canada. Including llrltlsh Columbia, is far
from perfect and far from satisfactory.
There ls too much trafficking ln dead
Issues and too much time is spent in
teaching features of a curriculum which
are of little or no use to the pupil. This
Is particularly true of the -dead"
languages and of certain features of
higher mathematics which, apart from
the mental discipline Involved, are of
nn use whatever to the student. It ls
all very well for a college graduate or
even a high school pupil to display considerable acquaintance with classical
literature but so far as tho practical Issu es arc concerned these do but little
good. It has become a serious question
Bo far as "educational" issues are concerned whether what passes for education Is Ihe real thing. Our colleges lake
young men and women out of the actual
walkH of life und put them through a
course of alleged (ruining which, for the
most pari, fortes them out of sympathy
wllh all that Is practical in life. That
a college degree carries with it an
amount of prestige lhat ls difficult to
overlook must be readily admitted but
there Is a growing   f-eeling   that   the
whole system of education needs revision and bringing down or up to date
In such a wny ub to leave those who pursue, the higher studies somewhat more
in touch with actual life than the pre-
ent system allows.
The object of all schools should he to
keep the young people In touch with
practical life and fit them for the discharge of the duties upon which they
must enter soon after they leave the
school. That schools have the very opposite effect under the present system
will scarcely be denied. The caUBO of
this is the antiquated system wheih ls
In vogue. Education must vary wltb the
varying methods of domestic. Industrial
and commercial life aud what was good
en ..ugh under the Industrial and commercial life of half a century ago Is an-
liquated now. It ls all very well for the
pampered child of fortune to spend
years acquiring familiarity with classics
and dead languages, but for the average
student ln the common schools, the mental waste and worry Incident to a mastery of the ordinary curriculum ls llttlo
short of criminal. The present school
system will have to give place to an Institutional system under which the details of practical life will be taught.
There is serious work ahead of our educators and at present we see no prophe
cy of a satisfactory system.
If the educators of Nova Scotia can introduce an innovation In the right sort
of technical education in the common
schools the East may set an example
which will bring the blush aud pride of
gratitude to posterity. At any rate tho
experience of the maritime province will
be worthy of close scrutiny in iis new
There is Intense interesi In the secret
ofjilr. Hyman's galloping recovery, says
the Toronto News. What did he take
and how often? Was the elixir applied
externally or internally? Is change of
climate essential? Is the disease worse
than the bulletins or the bulletins worse
Ihan the disease? It seems to have been
a long distance malady. It grew ln
malignancy ln proportion to distance
from the object of attack. If Mr. Hyman had gone still further away the reports at this end of the wire mlghl
have been fatal. But what is the secret
of the, wonderful recovery, and the real
value of this last contribution to medical and political science. Mr. Hyman
seems to have been a Joyous Invalid,
and with the marvellous new remedy
which his physicians, or hia colleagues
la the cabinet, have discovered, it may
be impossible to distinguish between a
sickness aud a holiday.
The Toronto Telegram says: "lt
seems that the only adverse criticism
passed upon the Mendelssohn Choir In
New York ia that the concert was far
too long. This ls the Canadian habit.
Our concerts are too long, our public
dinners too long, our speeches too long
and too numerous. We are greedy for
quantity and often singularly Indifferent to quality." To all of which we
shall say that the well Informed reader
says the Canadian editorials are too
long.   They never read the Dally News.
Liberal journals which hailed Mr. W.
W. B. Mclnnes as the saviour of his
province now openly call him a Jonah.

New York, Feb. 21.���Although the entire day's Hi-'HHlon in the Thaw case yesterday was devoted by Dlstricl Attorney
Jerome to the cross-examination of Evelyn Nesbitt Thaw, be Is uot nearly
IhrssUBb.. There is little doubt that he
will continue today. He has many more
questions to ask her, for as yet, he has
hardly touched on tlie more important
features or her story.. The examination
so far has been a bit ragged, jumping
rapidly from event to event In a palpable effort to confuse the witneBB. Mtb.
Thaw's memory has suffered a relapse
since she told her story on direct examination and by fur the greater part
of her auswers were in the words, " I
don't remember." With the exception or
thoBe oft-repealed admissions her story
has not been shaken. Just what features
of the case Mr. Jerome will bring out
today it is hard to Bay. So far he has
asked practically no questions touching
on the meeting of Evelyn Nesblit Thaw
and White and their subsequent relations, and has not referred lo the
stories she testified she told her husband, and about seeing White on the
street twice after she was married, nor
has he ln any way questioned her on
her Btory of the events of the night of
June 2fith. Mrs. Thaw was unable yesterday tn give exacl, or In many cases,
even approximate dates. She was not
even sure of the month in which, us
she has testified. White accomplished
her ruin.
"'Is lt not true you went alone with
him on the yacht?"
"Mama and 1, yes."
Another objection to the question
whether she had been co-respondent iu
Ganand'B divorce suit was susttiined.
Alter more questions regarding her
associations with Garland, "Did tleorge
W. Lederer have anything to do with
your going into the Florodora cast?"
".Not that 1 know of."
"During tills time did you ever pose
for an artist in tbe nude?"
"Ever huve any casts made in the
"Did you not ln 1S.01- have Buch a
.���Est made?"
She had never heard of Mr. Wells, a
sculptor. Her acquaintance with Garland
ceased when she met White.
"Is lt true that Garland became an-
noylng when you lived at a certain
apartment house and your mother got
the telephone girl to refuse to send up
his card?"
"Did your mother meet you every evening at the theatre?"
"I remember going once with mama
and anoiher lady."
"Did your brother Howard ever go to
the theatre for you?"
"Once when mama was sick."
"You know your brother's writing?"
"ls this his signature?"
Mr. Jerome Bhowed the witness a document concealing all but the bottom of
the last page.   "Yes."
