New York, March 5.—It la probable
that Mrs. William Thaw, mother of
Harry K. Thaw, will take the stand
in the Thaw trial today for the pur-
pose of doing what she can to save
her son from the consequences of the
act which resulted in the death of
Stanford White. Mrs. Thaw's testi-
mony can be of little value except In-
sofar as it may tend to show that in
his youth her son was of a very nerv-
ous temperament and that he suffer-
ed from various nervous diseases as a
child. It has been said that she w
also testify to a strain of insanity in
her family, but her evidence in this
line can be of little value.
Dr. Charlqs U. Wagner will be on
the stand for a time at least today, as
his cross-examination was not com-
pleted when! court adjourned last
night. Just what Mr. Jerome expects
to prove by bis cross-examination of
this fXPert is'not plain. Like all his
other cross-examinations it has so far
been rambling, jumping from one
point to another. So far as one can
follow his object, Mr. Jerome seeins
to be trying to show by Dr. Wagner's
admissions that Thaw never was In-
sane, while he devoted most of his
time with Dr. Evans in attempting to
compel that aiienist to make admis-
sions that would tend to show that
Thaw is now Insane. .
Mr. Delmas made few objections to
Mr. Jerome's questions to Dr. Wag-
ner yesterday and there are many who
are following the case closely who are
of the opinion that the defense will
not object to this line of questioning,
while they will roslst strenuously any
attempt to show that Thaw Is now In-
sane, preferring to take their chances
with the Jury rather than with a luna-
cy commission. The insanity plea al-
lowed them to put Evelyn Nesbit
Thaw's story before the Jury and the
spectators are, many of them, con-
vinced that this is as far as the de-
fense hopes to go with the plea. It Is
certain that the defense will take the
case to the jury if It. is possible and
will fight to the last ditch against a
Another point that is being discuss-
ls the legal standing of tho marriago
between Thaw and Evelyn Nosblt.
Both Dr. Evans and Dr. Wagner have
testified that, they believed Thaw was
of unsound mind when ho signed the
will and codicil on the night of April
4. 1005. This was the day of the mar-
riage. If Thaw was Insane at that
time, he was, under the law of Penn-
sylvania, Incompetent to enter into a
contract. Marriage Is under the law
a contract and if he was Insane at the
time, his marriage would bo void, not
voidable at the pleasure of one of the
parties, but actually void under the
law. This is only one of the peculiar
legal aspects of the case which are In-
teresting lawyers and followers of tho
case In general.

dark clothes. They boarded tho train
here at the station and began work-
ing the train as It pasted the Kansas
City Southern shops, , They com-
menced with the smoking car and one
walked ahead with a 44-caIiber revolv-

passengers to "shell out" to the man
behind, who was closely following.

foremost robber, who shot twice at
him. The first shot went wild and
struck Westlake, but the second
struck tho negro in the head and kill-

made tho auditor stand and deliver
and hurriedly left the train as it en-
tered the yards at Cornell.
Westlake, the wounded passenger,
was taken to Liberal, where his hand
was dressed by the local surgeon of
the company. As Boon as communica-

WORK OF JOKER
ONE THEORY REGARDING MONEY
MISSING FROM THE CHICA-
EXPERTS COONTING CASH
George W. Fitzgerald, from Whose
Cage the Money was Taken, was
on the Grill for Five Hours
Yesterday, But Nothing
New was Developed.
Chicago, 111., March 5.—No irregu-
larities have been discovered in\jtho
cash of the subtreasury at the close "of
the first day of ,the official count by,
the four experts sent to Chicago by
the United States treasury. The-
count will take about four1 weeks. The
Government's object 1s to ascertain
whether more than the . $173,000 for
which the Secret Secy Ice department
is unsuccessfully searching, has dis-
appeared. . -a "
One? of the tlwnries upon which the
Government authorities have worked
Industriously Is that tho money was
taken from Fitzgerald's cage by some
ill-advised practical joker among
eight or nine persons who had acce^
to the compartment and who is no^
afraid to confess. It has been learned
that on several previous occasions
money was taken from Fitzgerald's
cage as a jest and restored later, af-
ter Fitzgerald had worried sufficiently
to satisfy the practical joker.
Chief Wilkie expects to return to-
morrow to Washington.
George W. Fitzgerald, the assorting
teller, from whose cage the money
was stolen, was on the grill for anoth-
er five hours yesterday. His exami-
nation developed nothing important,
the secret service operatives said.

ANOTHER PANAMA JUNKET.
Members of Congress to View

Washington, I). C., March 5.—It
seems to be quite tho proper thing
nowadays for every one in public life,
from the President down through an
interminable list of officeholders, to
run down to Panama on a little Jaunt
just to see If the work on the isthmian
canal is progressing satisfactorily. If
there Is any one in Washington who
has not received an Invitation to ono
of these official junkets it must, have

have a legion of public officials al-
ready taken tho trip or are preparing
for it, but members of their families
and numerous friends have shared i;i
the pleasures of the excursions at Un-
cle Sam's expense.
The latest party to make the trip Is
scheduled to sail from New York to-
morrow on tho steamer Alliance. It
will be made np of about fifty mem-
bers of the Senate and House, with a
number of guests. Tho party will be
gone about a month and probably will
touch at several of tho West Indian
ports en route. During their stay in
the canal /.one the Congressmen In-
tend to make a thorough inspection of
conditions there with a vi?w to being
better prepared to deal with any
measures that may come before them

struction of the canal.

WAR ON MOSQUITOES.
State Health Officer Urges Action by
Texas Cities and Counties.
Austin. Tex., March 5.—State Health
Officer W. M. Brumby has sent the
following address to county and city
health officers throughout the state:
"In view of the fact that a remark-
ably mild winter will give up myriads
of mosquitoes at an earlier date than
usual, I would recommend and urge
that all cities and towns in the state,
and more especially in South Texas,
take stoos at oiice to cut off tho prop-
agation of the mosquito.
"By screening the house tho In-
mates are protected: by screening
your cistern, draining tho premises
and nearby stagnant water holes, or
pouring kerosene oil In same , the
neighborhood Is protected.
If systematically carried out our
efforts are always rewarded by relief
from much pain and suffering from
the little pest, and a knowledge of se-
curity against malaria and yellow
fever The necessity for this precau-
tion Is essential, even if yellow fever
is further from our borders than ever
known before, for the anopheles (ma-
larial ).. mosquito is ever prevalent in
South Texas and causes more sick
ness and deaths, year in and year out,
than yellow fever does."
