"EARVFOR NORTH POIE7
Indominable Explorer To Try For Pole
Again This Summer.
WASHINGTON. April . Secretary
Metcalf. today granted the application
of Commander Teary, for a three years
leave of absemv the time to be spent
In Polar explorations.
The application of CommanJer Pea
ry for a leave of absence of three
yvars, uncovered the fact that Peary
proposes to make another attempt thl
summer to reach the North Pole. It
is expected the start will be made
sometime in June.
NEW TORK, April 9. Delphln M.
Delmas, leading counsel for Harry K.
Thaw will finish his address to the Ju
ry tn Thaw's defense today. It la ex
pected that he will conclude half the
of his address befor the court takes
Its luncheon recess. Then there will
remain nothing; more but District At
torney Jerome's address to the jury
ana Justice Fitierald's charge. The
case should surely go to the Jury by
Thursday, and the probability Is that
it wilt be submitted to them WeJnes-j
. day afternoon.
Mr. Delmas spoke for two hours and
a half yesterday, reviewing the evi
dence and putting upon It the de-
fence's construction. He had prac- j
tlcally finished with this portion of;
his address when court adjourned last,
night and today he will begin with
tig real argument So far he has not
mentioned the subject of Insanity, but
has devoted himself entirely to an at
tempt to show that the evidence
proves that Evelyn Nesblt Thaw told
the truth on the stand when she told
the story to Harry K. Thaw In Paris,
in 1903, and that the story was true.
He also took occasion to denounce
Evelyn's mother in the bitterest terms
as a woman who had lived on her
daughter's shame. He flatly accused
Abraham H. Hummel of committing
perjury on the witness stand and
waxed eloquent when detailing the de
barred attorney's record.
Today Mr. Delmas will get down to
the actual story of the shooting and
will argue that Thaw was insane at
the time of the shooting. Yesterday
calling her one of the bravest and
truest women the world had ever
seen, and flayed Stanford White mer
cilessly. He has made known his in-1
tention of not bringing into the case
the "Unwritten law," but his argu
ment so far has been almost altogeth
er along that line. When Mr. Delmas
finishes his argument today Court will
be adjourned until tomorrow morning
when Mr. Jerome will begin his sum
ming up. He expects to finish in
three or four hours and If he does it
is probable that Justice Fitzgerald will
charge the jury at once. The Jury
has been ordered confined until they
are discharged and It is' not probable j
that the judge will keep them con- '
fined longer than is necessary.
That every possible effort will be
made to secure a verdict goes without
saying. The case has' been the long-
est and most expensive murder trial
ever held in New York and Justice J
Fitzgerald will not allow the Jury wj
go until there is absolutely no chance
of agreement. Even if they do report
that they cannot agree, as those who
have been following the trial closely
confidently believe, it is probable that
Justice Fitzgerald will send them back
to the jury room and keep them there
until the last hope of an agreement Is

AN INSIDIOUS DISEASE.
One of the worst features of kidney
trouble Is that It is an Insidious dis
ease and before the victim realises his
danger he may have a fatal malady.

KNOCKER AND INATTENTIVE
Board Of Fish Commissioners Uphold
Van Dusen And Appoint Frank C
Brown Of Ontario To Succeed Web
sterFish Warden's Report.
SALEM, Or.. April 9. Upon com
plaint of Master Fish Warden H. G.
Van Dusen, the State Hoard of Fish
Commlsstoutirs yesterday afternoon vo
ted to retire H. A. Webster, of Oregon
City, fro mthc orhYe of Deputy Fish
Warden and appointed In his place
mnk C. Brown, of Ontario, formerly
a resident of Oregon City. While this
change cannot be regarded a nn as
surance of the re-election of Mr. Van
Dusen to his present office. It may be
said to strengthen his chance of re
tention In the light of present chaotic
Mr. Van Dusen's principal complaint
against Webster was that he put in
the major portion of his time "knock
ing" and pa'd little attention to the
performance of his official duties," and
the board In making the change took
the view that. Inasmuch as the Fish
Warden Is heU responsible for the
proper observance of the law govern
ing the flsh Industry and protection of
the fish during the olosml season, strict
harmony should prevail between him
self and his deputies. It appears that
nothing but discord had cxlsled be
tween Messrs. Van Dusen and Webster
for several months past, and In retir
ing the deputy the board takes the
position of upholding the authority
and respect due the superior official.
For many months thcro have been
half-confirmed rumors that Mr. Van
Dusen would be retired from the office
of Master Fish Warden at the close of
his present term, but the longer the
election Is delayed the more remote
seems the possibility of any change.
Deputy Webster has been recognised
as Mr. Van Dusen's strongest oppo
nent for the job, and while his removal
from the deputyshlp does not neces
sarily destroy his chances to succeed
to the higher office, It relegates him
somewhat to the background. One of
Mr. Van Dusen's chief causes for cont
ent against Mr. Webster was the
chiirgo that he was putting In his
time lobbying for the Mustw Warden's
J.ib during the Legislature, where he
should have been attending to subordi
nate duttc a! his post.
If II should come to a vote uW a
successor to Mr. Van Dusen at present
even If Secretary of State tU'iioti
were here, It would be pietly certain
to result In n deadlock, and Mr. Van
thtsue would hold his Job Indefinitely.
Itcfore leaving for California, Secre
tar HciiMm said he had no choice
among the candidates. Slide Treasu
rer Steel Is pledged to support Rep
resentative J. V. Campbell, of Oregon
City, for the Job while Governor Cham
berlain will stand by his announced
policy of retaining incumbents where
ihe services have been satlMtu-tnr)
and would Vole for the retention of
Mr, Van Dusen.
