Prisoner "Tells Story or How He
Killed Stanford White and De

Ioctor" of Prosecution.
SEW YORK, July 9. A charge by
John B. Stanchfield, chief counsel for
Harry K. Thaw, that the state had in
Justice Hendrick's court an expert "lip
reader," who was translating- for the
benefit of alienists whispered conver
sations the slayer of Stanford White
had with his attorneys and members of
his family, precipitated a request today
by Deputy Etate Attorney-General
Becker that a mistrial be declared. Jus
tice Hendriclc refused to grant the pe
tition, but instructed the jury that re
marks by counsel were not to be con
sidered. Thaw himself was on the witness
stand at the time of the occurrence. He
was excused without cross-examination
immediately after it. During: the day
he told his own story of how he shot
and killed Stanford White, and he gave
his ideas about alienists who have testi
fied for the state at previous proceed
ings. Thaw's examination was conducted
by Deputy Attorney-General Frank A.
Cook, who passed rapidly from one
BUbjeet to another, allowing Thaw to
give full explanations when he desired.
With one or two exceptions Thaw an
swered every question put to him di
rectly and with emphasis. Spectators
remarked, that he seemed to be sure of
At one point Thaw referred to the
alienists who testified against him in
the murder trial as "bug: doctors."
Asked whom he had in mind when
he mentioned "bug doctors," Thaw
named several alienists, including Dr.
Austin Flint, who was in court wait
ing to testify for the state.
"Have you any feeling against Dr.
"Oh, not a bit," replied the witness.
Deputy Attorney-General Cook an
nounced that he wouid abandon his
effort to bring Evelyn Nesbit Thaw
here to testify. Mr. Cook said It had
been reported to him that Mrs. Thaw
was too ill to make the trip hare from
Chateaugay Lake and to stand the
ordeal of testifying.
FRAUD IN DEED CHARGED
Vancouver Man, 18, Sues Wife to
VANCOUVER, Wash., July 9. (Spe
cial.) William Schneider, 78 years old
and not able to read and write the
English language well, has brought suit
against his wife, 65 years of age. whom
he married February 2, 1914. here, to
recover title to about a quarter section
of land, estimated to be worth J4000.
He asserted in tha complaint that he
made a warranty deed of all of this
property to his wife at her request, but
that he did not know he was divesting
himself of all right In it. He alleges
that the deed was made without con
sideration and on the solicitations of
his wife under undue influence, duress
and fraudulent representations, and
that on account of his advanced age
and his inability to read and write
English, did not know or understand
what was taking place.
He was married by Judge R. II. Back,
and he now asks the same court to as
sist him In having the deed set at
naught and to recover the property.

OYSTER BAY. N. Y.. July 9. (Sdc-

leave here Sunday for a trip to the
Pacific Coast. He will be gone more
than three weeks. It will be the first
long Journey in civilization made by
the ex-President in many years ' in
wnicn speeches en route were not a
feature of the trip.
It i3 a significant commentary on
the state of the Colonel's political
mind at present that his itinerary has
been so arranged that he will not
have to make many speeches or hold
many political conferences. . Indeed,
every effort has been made to keep
secret the fact that he was loinz West
at this time. In order that he might not
be importuned for speeches and con
ferences. Nevertheless he has been
deluged with letters and telegrams
asking him to say a few words here
and talk to a Progressive conference
Aside from three engagements to
speak in San Francisco and one at
San Diego the Colonel has declined all
invitations. On July 21 Roosevelt
Day at the Panama-Pacific Exposi
tion, the Colonel will speak in the
Court of the Universe. His topic will
be "World Politics."
In San Francisco the Colonel will
have a long talk on the state of the
country and the future, of the Pro
gressive party with Governor John
son, who was his running mate in the
National race In 1912. This will be
the first time they have met since

Because of the fact that the City
Council of St. Johns expended virtually
all the funds available there before the
town became a part of Portland, the
City Council of Portland yesterday cut
short a plan to expend fsaJO in making
surveys for the fixing of grades and
the establishment of street lines and
other property lines. The money was
to have been expended within the next
two or three months, men having al

They will be recalled at once and the
expenditures withheld for the present.
Out of all the money St. Johns took in
from taxes and other sources up to
July 1, only $292.15 was left when the
Council finished its work the day be

Commissioner Bigelow, who has in

yesterday's Council meeting that the
St. Johns Council apparently had ex

"Apparently." said he. "they wanted
to- provide for as many lights and
other things as possible before the
merger took place, thinking apparently
that they would get these things be
fore they had to ask the Council of
Portland for them."
About 15 arc-light petitions were
granted. An effort will be made by
Commissioner Daly to keep the Port-

country, but that the enemy civilian
population must be spared, as far as
possible, from the measures of war.
The imperial government cherishes
the definite hope that some way will
be found when peace is concluded, or
perhaps earlier, to regulate the law
of maritime war in a manner guar
anteeing the freedom of the seas and
will welcome it with gratitude and
satisfaction if it can work hand in
hand with the American Government
on that occasion.
Blame for Violations Disclaimed.
"If In the present war the principles
which should be the ideal of the future
have been traversed more and more,
the longer its duration, the German
government has no guilt therein. It
is known to the American Government
how Germany's adversaries, by com
pletely paralyzing peaceable traffic
between Germany and neutral coun
tries, have aimed from the beginning
and with increasing lack of considera

the armed forces as the life of the
German nation, repudiating In doing
so all the rules of international law
and disregarding all the rights of

law. Long before the beginning of
submarine war England practically
completely Intercepted legitimate neu

Germany was driven to a submarine
war on trade.
Food Blorkade Reviewed.
"On November 14. 1914, the English
Premier declared in the House of
Commons that it was one of England's
principal tasks to prevent food for the
German population from reaching
Germany via neutral ports. Since
March 1 England has been taking
from neutral ships without further for.

openly proclaimed war without mercy
until our utter destruction, we were con

have been obliged to adopt a sub

intentions of our enemies and the
method of warfare adopted by them
in contravention of International law.
With all its efforts In principle to
protect neutral life and property from
damage as much as possible, the Ger
man government recognized unreserv
edly In Its memorandum of February
4. that the Interests of neutrals might
suffer from the submarine warfare.

However, the American Government
will also understand and appreciate
that In the fight for existence which
has been forced upon Germany by Its
adversaries and announced by them, it
Is the sacred duty of the Imperial gov
ernment to do all within its power
to protect and save the lives of Ger
man subjects. If the imperial govern
ment were derelict in these. Its duties,
it would be guilty before God and his
tory of the violation f those prin
ciples of highest humanity which are
the foundation of every national ex
istence. Britain Blamed for I,usltatla.
"The case of the Lusltanla shows with
horrible clearness to what Jeopardis
ing of human lives the manner of con
ducting wsr employed by our adver
saries leads. In the most direct con
tradiction of international law. all dis
tinction between merchantmen and
war vessels have been obliterated by
the order to British merchantmen to
arm themselves and to ram submarines
and the promises of rewards therefor,
and neutrals who use merchantmen as
travelers, thereby, have been exposed
by an Increasing degree to all the
dangers of war.
Quick Sinking- of LnsKanla Surprises.
"If the commander of the German
submarine which destroyed the Lusi
tania had caused the crew and passen
gers to take to the boats before firing
a torpedo this would have meant the
sure destruction of his own vessel.
After the experiences In sinking much
smaller and less seaworthy vessels, it
was to be expected that a mighty ship
like the Lusltanla would remain above
water long enough even after the tor
pedoing to permit passengers to enter
the ship's boats. Circumstances of a
very peculiar kind, especially the pres
ence on board of large quantities of
highly explosive materials (word
omitted, possibly "dissipated") this ex

that If the Lusltanla had been spared
thousands of cases of munitions would

and thereby thousands of German
mothers and children robbed of bread

with the German nation has been im

always be ready to do all it can during
the present war. also- to prevent the

It can assume that In this manner ad
equate facilities for travel across the
Atlantic Ocean can bo afforded Ameri

appear to be no compelling necessity
for American citizens to travel to Eu
rope In time of war on ships carrying
an enemy flag. In particular, tbo Im
perial government Is unable to admit
that American citizens can protect an
enemy ship through the mere fact of
their presence on board.
England's Example Followed.
"Germany merely followed Eng
land's example when she declared part
of the high sea an area of war. Con
sequently accidents suffered by neu
trals on enemy ships in this area of
war cannot well be Judged differently
from accidents to which neutrals are
at all times exposed at the seat of
war on land when they betake them
selves into dangerous localities In
spite of previous warnings. If, -however,
it should not be possible for the
American Government to require an
adequate number of neutral passenger
steamers, the Imperial government Is
prepared to Interpose no objections to
the placing under the American flag
by the American Government of four
enemy passenger steamers for passen
ger traffic between North America
and England. Assurances of 'free and
safe' passage for American passenger
steamers would extend to apply under
the identical pro-conditions to these
formerly hostile passenger steamers.
"The President of the United States
has declared his readiness, in a way
deserving of thanks, to communicate
and suggest proposals to the govern
ment of Great Britain with particular
reference to the alteration of marine
war. The Imperial government will
always be glad to make use of the
good offices of the President, and
hopes that his efforts in the present
case, as well as in the direction of the
lofty Ideal of the freedom of the seas,
will lead to an understanding.
"The undersigned requests the Am
bassador to bring the above to the
knowledge of the American Govern
ment and avail himself of the oppor
tunity to renew to His Excellency the
assurances of his most distinguished
consideration. VON JAliOW."
