Mrs. Carter Testifies in Suit
Brought by Belasco.
PROFITS GIVEN TO TRUST
Double Dealing Is Charged Against
3iembers rof One of 'the. Big
Theatrical Firms in the
City of 2few York.
NEW YORK, April 17. Mrs. Leslie
Carter, the actress, was a witness to
dayvin the case of David Belasco, the
playwright, against Klaw & Erlanger.
Mrs. Carter was called by Samuel Un
termeyer, counsel for Belasco, to testi
fy regarding a meeting between Be
lasco and Nixon & Zimmerman, the
atrical managers of Philadelphia, at
which she was present. Belasco had
testified regarding this meeting when
he was on the stand last week, soon
after the opening of the trial in his
suit '.In which he seeks to prove that
Klaw &. Erlanger were his partners in
the production of "The Auctioneer,"
with David Warfleld. Mrs. Carter's tes
timony today corroborated that of Be
lasco regarding the Philadelphia
"Mr. Belasco told Mr. Nixon," said
Mrs. Carter, "that he had been obliged
to glye Erlanger 60 per cent of War
field's profits. 'Why,' said Mr. Nixon,
"I did not lenow that,' and then Mr.
Nixon said that his time would come
when he (Nixon) could bring Erlanger to
terms for double dealing."
Abraham Gruber, counsel for Klaw
& Erlanger, objected, but was over
ruled. "Did you know Mr. Brooks at that
time?" asked Mr. Utermeyer.
"Yes, but his name was not men
tioned. Mr. Nixon said he wanted Mr.
Belasco lo keep away from the theater,
for he wanted to get 'Zaza' opened and
they were trying to serve papers on
"Did he use a profane word?"
"Yes," replied Mrs. Carter; "Mr. Nix
on said there would be " she paused
a second and smiled, "hell to pay."
"Have you ever talked to anybody about
"I certainly have. It has been on my
mind for a year, and I have talked to
everybody about it."
"What did you tell Mr. Vandiver of
"I told him what I knew, and that is
what I am going to testify to." -
'What did you say you were going 'to
"Just as I have told you."
1 "Won't you please tell it again?" aeked
Mr. Gruber. "I love to hear you talk."
"Thank you," said Mrs. Carter; "It Is
so kind of you. I told Mr. Vandiver that
they were trying to do Mr. Belasco out
of all his money and how they tried to
get 'Zaza' away from him."
"No, I mean what you told him you
were going to testify to as to the Nixon
"I am trying to tell you," said Mrs.
Carter. "1 told Mr. Vandiver just what
I have told you. Mr. Nixon said, 'they
said Klaw & Erlanger had tried to jump
Belaseo from one part of the globe to
another,' they were trying to make him
spend hla money, they were afraid of
him with money, they were afraid of
him anyway. Nixon said he had none
of the money, and he was going to call
Klaw & Erlanger to account for their
"You are friendly to Mr. Belasco, are
"Not only friendly." replied Mrs. Car
ter, "but thankful grateful from the bot
tom ,of my heart."
T Marc Klaw, a member of the firm of
Klaw- & Erlanger, was a witness at to
day's session of the court. Mr. Klaw
produced some check stubs at the re
quest of Mr. Untermyer, but several
which were wanted in connection with
the case were missing. The witness
promised to produce them. Mr. Untermyer
declared that subpenas served on Klaw
& Erlanger have been repeatedly dis
obeyed by them.
"We are going to get at the bottom of
these books, and. we will show you how
they are kept before we get through,"
Mr. Klaw said his firm made $20,000 on
"The Auctioneer," and also received its
share of the profits of the theaters where
he play was produced. His firm, how
ever, never was a partner in "The Auc
tioneer," he declared, except through
Joseph Brooks, and It was from Brooks
that Klaw & Erlanger received the $20,
000. ''You paid "Franklin Beln a check when
you were trying to stop Belasco from
producing 'The Music Master?" asked
"If we did we paid it for Brooks," the
witness replied. Herman P. Aaron, book
keeper for Klaw & Erlanger for seven
years, said there was no account in a
certain ledger which was produced ex
cept with Klaw & Erlanger. One page
was writen, "David Fairfield Company."
The bookkeeper testified that all the ex
penses of "The Auctioneer" were charged
to the expense account of Klaw & Er
langer. When Mr. Untermyer called for Robert
Walker, confidential manager for Al
Heyman, he did not respond, and the
attorney handed up a subpena and body
David Belasco, the plaintiff, then was
recalled to the stand to rebut some testi
mony given by" some of Klaw & Erlanger's
witnesses earlier in, the trial. He denied
that he ever told Joseph Brooks that he
was much gratified at the success of "The
Auctioneer," or that he ever thanked
Abraham Erlanger for getting him Mr.
Brooks as a partner.
"What was the theatrical situation in
1300 and 1901 to get a route?" asked Mr.
"I could not get a route without the
assistance of Klaw & Erlanger. I could
have got one or two night stands with
long jumps. I could not get the assist
ance of Klaw & Erlanger without giv
ing 50 per cent of the profits. As I
said before, I am bottled up in New
Mr. Untermyer then Informed the court
that with the exception of Mr. Walker's
testimony his case was finished. He
asked for an adjournment to take Walk
er's testimony and time for counsel to
Justice Fitzgerald ordered an adjourn
ment until Thursday, when each side
will sum up.

BUSY ON REFORM SCHEMES
Various Elements Seem TJnahle to
Make Any Headway.
ST. PETERSBURG, April lS.-(2:30
A. M.) The reform elements of various
persuasions are busily elaborating
schemes of new governmental machinery,
but without co-ordination, and unless the
"various elements come together In some
such organization as that proposed by
the barristers at their recent congress
here, the projected reform is likely to
suffer from the multiplicity of views and
aims. Three distinct assemblies of lib
erals were in -session in St. Petersburg
yesterday, the engineers, the litterateurs
and a group attempting to form a new
moderate constitutional party, and today
there will be the opening meeting of an
assembly, of provincial Journalists.
The litterateurs' session was barren of
results; the meeting of engineers, which
was held privately, was discovered and
dispersed by the police before it passed
the preliminary stage, and the moderate
constitutionalists, after a two days ses
sion, were unable to agree on a pro
gramme to which if wished to commit
the new party. Meetings will be contin
ued to endeavor to formulate a working
plan before the congress of Moderate
Zemstvolsts early in May.
The factory-owners and operators and
others who come in contact with the
worklngmen meanwhile are growing more
apprehensive of the action of the wora
ingmen after Easter. The attitude of tnis
class la becoming daily more pronounced,
and the middle classes of the city are
thoroughly alarmed, reports declaring
that the worklngmen have decided to in
augurate an era of pillage and Incendiar
ism on May 2, the third day of the Eas
ter celebration. Even the symbols de
noting houses that are to be pillaged are
reported to have been determined.
A policeman was killed on Monday by
a crowd of sailors attached to the fourth
squadron, which is being made ready for
departure to the Far East. The police
man ordered the crowd to disperse, and
on Its refusal drew a revolver and
wounded two of the sailors, but was
beaten to death while vainly trying to de
fend himself with his saber.

WASHINGTON, April 17. The report
of the Naval board which conducted
the recent trial of the Goldsborough In
Puget Sound has been received at the
Navy Department. In substance It shows
that although the speed is not alto

years ago, the vessel is structurally

MARCH AGAINST 1
Evangelists Lead Parade Into
A MOMENT'S SOLEMN HUSH
Denizens of the Restricted District
"Watch Singing Thousands for
ah Instant, Then the Old
Bound Begins Again. '
SEATTLE, Wash.. April 17. (Spe
cial.) Men and women who tottered
as they marched; boys and girls, chil
dren in years; zealots of middle life
tand persons of the world tramped be
hind a band that was" paid to march
while the Chapman evangelical pro
cession swung through the tenderloin
The midnight parade was soul-satisfying,
while it was sad. It was up
lifting as It was disgusting. Eyes that
involuntarily swept the windows peo
pled by curious denizens of the under
world made one almost forget the fer
vor of the singing 3000 that swept
through the streets wrapped In the
belief that a great good was being ac
complished. Three big meetings followed the pa
rade, and from that standpoint, as well
as- from the viewpoint of numbers, the
demonstration was successful.
After it was all over, windows were
raised, curtains were pushed back, and
the heads of timid men were thrust
out to watch the tail of the proces
sion winding its way up the street. The
shouts, cries and songs died away in
For a few mlniltK th tenrtorlnln
was dazed. The orchestras were sI-
lent, voices were flushed, and on the
street the impulse was to praise. Then
the accustomed pandemonium broke
forth. The piano player began thrum
ming; men and women thronged from
the streets to the saloons; glasses
clinked; the ribald shouts of debauched
creatures rang out, and the under
world was again revelling in Its sin.
From the distance the echo of the
drums came; fragments of sacred songs
floated back on the evening air.
Through the streets wandered the curious-minded.
From the sidewalks eyes
that had been strangers to Iniquity
sought out the habitats of the harpy
and prowler. Timid women shrank
closer to the unwilling escorts they
had dragged to the slums.
Then wickedness took rein and ruin
solved Its problem. By a common Im
pulse wayfarers swarmed toward sa
loon doors. With one thought the den
izens of the restricted district crowded
the bars. It was a cry of whisky that
rang out; an appeal for thoughtless
ness. It was as though the curtain had
raised for a moment upon an unpre
pared stage. The performers scurried
ior the wings, remained hidden for the
moment, and then rushed forth more
abandoned, more reckless and more
daring than ever. The tenderloin came
back to Its own; overwhelmed it; wel
comed new converts and rejoiced in
Its power. Far up the street a winding
procession lost here and there a zealot,
who dropped Into the dive, the Strand,
and helped through the religious cere
mony. But the tenderloin revelled
again in its own wickedness and ig
nored the appeal for souls.

legislation. The committee will meet

force a reduction of expenses; also the
constitutional question as to the right
of the Government to allow differen
tials between different points in case
