Word of the unusual activity among
j steamboat men on the Ml.ilppl.
MMmrt and Ohio River has reached
i here. It would appear as a result of
the passage of toe big rivers and har-
bors bill and th4 appointment b$
i Prmldf nt Roosevelt of the Inland
( Waterways Commission, that the
I prosperous age of river traffic Is to
be revive.! Not alone will all the
streams of the Interior feel this
change, but the big navigable rivers
of the Coast also will be benefitted.
The great decline in steamboatlng Is
outlined in figures submitted by the
Merchants Exchange, of St. Loul. In
HST It appears that 234 1 boats and
liTI barges arrived there, while last
year only 100 boats, the majority of
which were small steamer, touched tt
that city. The freight shipped from
St. Louis in 1SS7 totaled 5;.CM0 tons.
while In ! the amount of freight
hipped was only 8.00Q tons. Ac
cording to students of the question,
this falling off was not flue any more
to the fierce competition of the rail
roads than it was to the failure of
the government to take proper care
of the streams and see to their navi
gability. Jut at the present time,
when all transportation lines are para
lysed with a great congwtlon of
freight, the government ha taken up
vigorously the development of water- j
ways. That this policy may not dlt

bors Congress Is seeking to stimulate
Interest throughout the T-'nlted 8tate

Daniel O'Reilly would have a leading
part in the future conduct of affairs.
It developed that the Jury had cons!
dered every phase of the case except
the "Unwritten law" passing Its Judg
ment entirely on the evidence. The
Jury tried to reach a common ground
on the verdict of manslaughter, only
eight ballots' were cast. The final
ballot was as follows; For conviction

had dwelt upon the statutory Insanity

Mm, Evelyn Nesblt Thaw Bald:
"I cannot understand It, I don't
see why they could not have come to
some kind of an agreement."
A reporter said to Mrs'. Thaw:
"The Jury stood seven to five for
conviction." "I don't believe It," he
cried emphatically. "They ought to
have acquitted him on the evidence.
Jerome stated that he considered It J
his duty to put Thaw on trial again.
Delmas said, "I know no more about
the disagreement of the pury than the
general public knows, and It Is too tar
ly to discuss plans for the future."
Concerning Oleason's criticism of his
"Dementia Americana" remarks, Del
mat said "I have no wish to comment

NEW YORK, April 12, 1907. An
other ld)ig, tnf:'44less night gone
through by the twelve men, to whom
the question of Harry K. Thaw's guilt
or Innocence has been commute,! and
this morning found them all but worn
out by their protracted wrestling with
gigantic problem. The room In which
they wefe confined Is small and It
sole pretension to anything like ease
are a long table and some cnairs.

this was all the relief extended from
the burden of deciding for or against
The present great struggle to reach
a verdict in tins aireaiiy famous case
brought up several comparisons of
Interest. When Roland H. Mollnenux
was tried the fii'st time the Jury was
out eight hours and It convicted him;
when he was tried again the Jury was
but twenty-five minutes on reaching
a decision to acquit him. When Nan
Patterson was tried the second time '
the Illness of a Juror having caused a
suspension of the first trial, the Jury
wan discharged after It had been out
twenty-four hours, and then reported
that It could not agree. Her third tri
al was equally empty of results after
the Juiy had been out eleven and one
half hours. . .
