I wouldnet care to change places with any of the people I met, even though I do admire them." Received Attention Through Chance.

Chance and Miss Newell's ingenuity are alone responaible for the attention she has attracted. It was on board the Cunard liner Slavonia that the young woman operator first became the friend of the members of The Hague peace who later mode her the guest of Hungary. Miss Newell. who had been sent abroad for her health by the Postal company more than two years ago. boarded the Slavonia on the coast of Sicily to return to the 1.7n1tg.d States.

On the liner were the 102 members of the peace commission. who were bound to Washington to interest President Roosevelt in the second peace tribunal. Miss Newell arrived on board at the psychological moment, as the members of the commission were making every effort to send a wireless message to Emperor Franz Josef of Austria-Hungary. The operator on board was unable to handle the instrument. however.

and they had just about given up in despair. when Miss Newell offered her services. I W. COZiDan Cotnpany tnpany Testimony in the FOrefloon. Because of this fact Dr.

Evans was, next to sirs. Evelyn Thaw, the most interesting licitness who so far has appeared for the defense. He began his testimony In the morning by stating in response to a questior from Mr. De Imes that he knew Harry K. Thaw.

He first saw him on Aug. 4, 1906, in the Tombs. and in all visited him eight titnes. Dr. Evans said he vets alone on the vieits of Aug.

4 and Oct. 1. At other times be was accompanied by Dr. Charles G. Wagner.

who testified yesterday. He declared he noticed on his visits to the Tombs that Thaw suffered from forms of insanity characterized by an exaggerated ego including adolescent Insanity. the latter due to heredity. Thaw also exhibited symptoms of having recently undergone an.explosive. or.

fulminating condition of mental unsoundness. How Thaw Was Insane. What during those visits did you observe In the mental condition of Mr. Thaw On the first visit on Aug. 4 be exhibited a.

peculiar facial expression, of the eye. restlessness of the eye, suspicion of his surroundings and of nervous agitation. and restlessness such as comes from a severe brain storm, common in those who have recently gone through an explosive or fulminating condition of mental unsoundness. He exhibited dehisions of personal character. an exaggerated ego.

and along with them delusions of a persecutory character. He thought himself of exaggerated Importance and believed himself persecuted by a number of persons." BY' au exaggerated, ego" Dr. Evans said he meant a disproportionate idea of importance of self, a belief that nets clothed with powers. capacity. and ability far above normal or above those actoally possessed." These symptoms, he said.

were characterIstic of several mental diseases. One of the mental diseases Indicated by Thaws actions, Dr. Evans declared. is known as adolescent Insanity. It is characteristic of the development period of lifefrom 10 to 40 years.

The person thus afflicted is known as having a psychopathic a predisposition to mental unsoundness. the result of heredity. Three Forms of Insanity. Another form of insanity said the witness. is known as paranotact or fixed Insanity on some subject.

The third is maniacal. where the patient jumps from one idea to another These forms and others are characrerized by the exaggerated ego. They are well defined forms about which theme can be no diffeeence or opinion" le there any specific name, doctor," asked Mr. Dermas, given toihat form of insanity wherein one imagines himself omnipresent, the ruler of the world?" That is Included In the forms of Insanity to which I have referred. Both adolescent Insanity and insanity are characterized by delusions asto self-Importance and exaggerated ego.

In adolescent insanity the patient exhibits no marked eymptorna But when the stress comes Dr. Evans took on a decamatory, tone of voice) the man does not break down as the ordinary or normal man would. There is a complete loss of mental balance, an explosive condition of the brain, the reason becomes dethroned, the wilt power is lost, and the brain is operating as a ship does In the wind without a rudderthe Palance wheel is gone. The acts of such a man are not the acts of a normal man, but show him to be guided by dieease and stress. His mind has left its moorings and yielded to diseased conditions.

On my first visit I also noticed that Mr. Thaw suffered from a rapid flow of words not characteristic of the normal mind. He showed a condition of abnormal excitement--a diseased condition of the brain."

If they will exclude such an operation as this I am willing to let the question go. Their unwillingness to do this is in itself proof that they desire to make that impression on the witness."

WillierneendOecar The new combination le to be known as the United Booking of we searched for evidences of drug habits or serious disease; there was search for tremors; we tested the sensibility of the surface of the body; we also tested the power of recollection and perception, examined the cranial nerves. and submitted Mr. Thaw to all the ordinary tests as to mental Dr. Evant said the next visit was on Sept. Many Of the previous tests were repeated.

We asked various questions, and the prisoner gave his own answers to them. and made a diagram with matches Mr. Jerome objected to the diagram, but was overruled by Justice Fitzgerald, and the witness was told to proceed. Mr. Thaw took matches and toothpicks and placed them so as to show positions, which may have been clear to him but were confusing to me.

I did not think his explanations were clear or logical. What was his condition on that der?" He was calm, less suspicious. and more confiding than on previous visits. While he still showed some nervous agitation, and the peculiar glancing from side to side as if to be sure there was nothing wrong. in a general way he was more composed.

His manner was more deliberate, although he still had an exaggerated opinion of his own importance." The next visit Dr. Evans described was on Oct. 1. This time." he said, Mr. Thaw was extremely cordial, and talked to me like a brother or friend.

He still, in modified manner. continued to dictate the course of the conversation, but not so much so as he had done before. He was still quite nervous, but there were no such suspicious glances." The eighth and last visit Dr. Evans said We had a protracted Interview with Mr. Thaw, in which a subject near to his heart was discussed.

May I ask the learned district attorney where he got his information as to the suavely suggested Mr. Delman.

"'Yrorn her mother." .40. did heir mother perform the operation' "No, but she was there and knew the charteter of it" The matter finally was adjusted at the suggestion of the court by Mr.

I believe I can help you," she volunteered and the instrument was turned over to her. After a few moments of study the vctreless message, which was a telegram of congratulation to the emperor upon the occasion of his birthday anniversary, was shot off through the air. But a young woman who understood the intricacies of this instrument which was such a puzzle to them could not be understood by the members of the commission. They talked to her, and asked her questions, and before New York was reached they' had agreed that she should visit Hungary as the guest of the nation.

You have helped us out of a dilemma, and we want to reward you," said Artiste Desswffy, secretary of the Hungarian parliament, a position which in general corresponds to speaker of the hours in the United States. Miss Newell smiled, blushed, and returned to Chicago. and the incident as she believed, was closed, when last Christmas a bulky letter was received at her residence, 433 West Monroe street. She examined it, and found that it was nothing less than an invitation to be the guest of Hungary, and to be the leading person in a program of banquets that had been drawn up by members of the commission. Three Weeks on Continent.

On Jan. 5 the operator left her key in the Parrotte building and started on her travels. She had nearly three weeks on the continent The program included a reception at Plume, a port of Hungary, where eight members of the commission met her. There was a banquet at which Count Marco Alexander, governor of presided. Then there was a banquet at Abasala and many visits to the houses of rnembera of the nobility.

all of whom were much interested in the American telegraph operator whoseemed as much at home among the members of parliament and nobility as among the wholesale houses of Market street, Chicago. It had been planned that she should be permitted to take Secretary Desswffy's seat in parliament. on the opening of that body, and, for few minutes, wield the gavel, but there was no seesion during January and Miss Newell was compelled, to return to Chicago without sitting in parliament She has been invited, to return when the second peace conference is held, however, and she hopes to take her seat in the august body then, Ends Trip at Desk. 'The trip ended when she donned her working garb and returned to the little telegraph eitice over which she presides. 0 yes, I am extremely proud of all of my adventures, but this is good enough for me." she said as she glanced at the furnishings of the (Mee.

In the disease you describe how do 'aft conditions differ from the conditions in a normal man who speaks rapidly?" An ordinary normal man speaks more or less deliberately on all matters of grave importance. be talks slowly, and his ideas come logically and connectedly.

In a man of unsound mind the Ideas come rapidly tumbling over each other, jumping from one subject to another that at once leads a trained observer to suspect unsoundness of mind. To rue it means that the mind either haa recently come through or is just going Into a severe mental storm; in, other words, It is either the twilight or dawn of a state of mental unsoundness or explosion. By delustione. I mean false ideas out of which a man cannot be arg-ued by logical and ordinary arguments. Mr.

Thaw exhibited what I believe were false ideas, which my arguments could not shake. On my next visit to the Tombs I observed that Thaw was still nervous, agitated, and had the peculiar expression of the eye familiar with mental I also observed his suspicion of me and all around him. HA, still exhibited the exaggerated ego and seemed disposed to tell rue what to do as examiner rather than follow directions. He still exhibited delusions of persecution, a condition of revolt against these fancied persecutions because they were unfair. Unlike melancholy, in this variety of mental disease there is a condition of exaltation." Dr.

Evans next described his third visit to Thaw Sept. 19. Mr. Thaw exhibited delusions of suspicion, lack of confidence in his advisers, and an explosiveness of mental makeup characteristic of a person of unsound mind. There were no hallucinations.

Mr. Thaw dismissed the physicians and had an argument with his counsel which I shall not i 1 i i' It i 1 Al 1 1 i 1 1 Vir. IL Nal lock, an, English Authority, Attacks Doctrine That Labor Is the Source of All Wealth. The directors are B. F.

It was announced today that fair contracts will be entered into between the managers and artists regarding the.

Evans to the battle between Jerome and Delmas over the hypothetical otiestion which has been detailed. This legal battle ended the day's proceedings.

tn. until tomor New 'York. Feb. 12.W. H.

Ma flock of England delivered a lecture today on socialism at Columbia university In cooperation with the public lecture bureau of the National Civic federation. The lecturer attacked the doctrine held by many- that labor is the only source of all wealth. This he asserted, together with the tifteor3r that socialism meant an equal distribution of wealth. was what made socialism attractive among a certain class. The lecturer reviewed the writings of various political economists on the doctrine that labor Is the source of all wealth.

pointing out the so-called fallacy of this view. He said the agencies by which wealth are produced are threeland, capital, and labor. By land le meant all the forces and spontaneous gifts, of nature," he said. As to these there is no dispute. Dispute arises only In connection with the agencies supplied by man.

Of these capital is one; but capital. whatever may be its nature, represents human agenclee that are past, not agencies that are actually operating in the present. and would be absolutely sterile unless living human effort made use of it. It Is, therefore, on the nature of the living Industrial effort Involved in the production of wealth that the whole discussion turns; and this living industrial effort is, bY the orthodox economists, comprised under the single name and the single category of labor. If labor be taken to Include Industrial effort ot all kinds, to say that labor Is the source of all wealth Is a platitude: and to Lay that all wealth ought to go to the laborers is like saying that all wealth ought to go to the human race.

We have no foundation here for any of the distinctive doctrines of socialism. I shall point out when I next address You that the varieties of human effort Involved in the production of modern wealth are not one. but two; and that these differ not only In degree of productivity, but In kindin the nature of their operation: and that economists who attempt to explain the production of wealth today, while giving a single name to two different kinds of effort, are like a man who insists on putting his hands into I boxing gloves as a preparation for taking to pieces the delicate works of a chronometer. The first thing. then, for us to do Is to take up the problem where the orthodox economists leave itto go on where they leave off.

It Is to take this mass of unanalysed Industrial effort which Is Involved in the production of wealth in modern civilized communities, and see of what different kinds of effort the great total consists, and how one kind is connected and cooperates with the other. This questionthe question of how wealth Is producedis the first question. In point of logic. with 'which It is necessary to deal In considering the socialistic theory as to the manner In which it ought to be distributed." The question of how wealth is produced will be taken up In a subsequent lecture. The Tobey Furniture Company 1 Wabash Avenue and Washington Street LYNCHING HEARING BEGINS; TWO WITNESSES MISSING.

Evans to state his conversation with the defendant on Sept. 19. Mr. Jerome objected to this on the ground that the alleged statements were made subsequent to the homicide. Mr.

Jerome said: The statements made by a man in prison in his own defense are not admissible -under any dircuenstances. But if they claim that the man was-insane at the time of the examination as well aa when the act was committed. then I am perfectly willing that these conversations shall go in." Justice Fitzgerald sustained Mr. Jeromes objection and Mr. Denies proceeded to question Dr.

Evans. Mr. Jerome objected and wrangled over the question until it was put aa follows: Were oral statements made by Mr. Thaw material In the formation ot your opinion as to his mental condition?" Yes." Were the conversations necessary to enable an expert to form a correct judgment as to this defendant's mental condition?" They were not entirely necessary," replied Dr. Evans.

but were highly important." Now, what was it Mr. Thaw said?" District Attorney 'Jerome objected on the ground that the answer involved unworn 1 statements of a defendant not shown to have been of unsound mind. I repeat." said Mr. Jerome, that I have no objection to this expert stating whether or not Harry Thaw was insane at the time of these examinations. If the doctor says Thaw was insane, then the conversations can come in." Justice Fitzgerald again sustained the district attorney.

Wagner also was present. We examined his general attitude, his manner of entering the room, manner of thought. and general deportment. He still had the glaring of the eyes, was still highly nervous, and still suspicious of every one. If while he was conversing with Dr.

Wagner I should move into a portion of the room where be could not see me, be would at once change his position so that he would get us both in his line of vision. Again he exhibited the exaggerated ego, the air of self-importance. and the disposition to direct me rather than be directed by me." When did you next see him?" asked Mr. Delmas. On Sept.
