On All but One Point In
Her Separation Suit.
NONSUPPORT CHARGE FAILS.
More Admissions by Millionaire's
Wife as to Visits by Dustin
Farnum, the Actor, to
New York, .Tunc 15. In the unit by
Mrs. Howard Gould for separation
from her huslmnd the plaintiff rested
her case, and Supreme Court Justice
Howling ruled that all but one count
In the wife's suit had fulled of proof.
Nonsupport was disproved hy her own
testimony, was the decision, and noth
ing was set up to show cruelty.
Justice Dowllng dismissed paragraph
three of the complaint, alleging that
Gould's personal habits were such as
to make It Improper nud unsure for his
wife to live with him, for want of
Paragraph live, alleging nonsupport,
was dismissed because the contrary
had been shown.
Taragrnph six, alleging cruelty and
Inhuman treatment, was next dropped
for lack of proof.
The justice, however, sustained the
plea of abandonment In part, because,
he said, as yet no proof had been of
fered to show that the defendant had
any right to nsk his wife to stop drink
ing and to stop humiliating hlin be
fore his friends. This ruling was re
garded as distinctly favorable to How
ard Gould, leaving him now to prove
only that he had reason to demand so
briety and decorum of Mrs. Howard
George J. Gould, brother of the de
fendant and head of the Gould family,
was called to show that Howard
Gould's Income was more than $400.
000 a year, us the defendant was said
to have alleged to his wife, who de
mands alimony at the rate of $11:0,000
n year. Mr. Gould offers her ?25,000
"What was the value of the proper
ty of Jay Gould held by you on Jan.
1, 1008?" asked Mr. Shenrn.
"And Mr. Howard Gould lias one
sixth of the income of that sum?"
Mr. Gould staled Howard Gould's
income as 777,000 in 1000, $742,000 in
1005, $725,000 in 1004, $783,000 In 1003
and $700,000 In 1002.
Mrs. Howard Gould before being re
leased as a witness wits questioned by
De Luneoy NIeoll about her relations
with Dustin Farnum, the actor, and
she grew uncomfortable and confused
when made to admit that ho hud visit
ed her rooms nt the St. Regis nud
other hotels and- had dined, supped
nnd traveled with her in scores ot
"Did Dustin Farnum go to your
npartment at the St. Regis in Septem
ber, 1000, after you returned to New
York?" asked Mr. NIeoll.
"Yes; he did."
Mr. NIeoll went on to ask about the
visit to Lynchburg on Nov. 17, 18 nnd
10, 1000, when Mr. Farnum was there.
He wanted to know the accommoda
tions each had had.
"Where was your bedroom?" asked
"AcrosH the hall from tho sitting

quainted with William O. Woodward,
othcrwlso known as "Big Hnwley,"
and that ho had questioned TIawley on
"Do you recollect the Mtbstnnco of
the conversation'" McLaughlin was
Mr. Hnwley said that he would not
say whether lie had been married to
Mrs. Gould or not, but that Mrs. Gould
had been used on a ship to decoy men
to piny cards.
Mr. ShoaK who, Mr. Shenrn sug
gested, was "connected with a gam
bling place." was mentioned as a
friend of Hawley's.
"I took steps to get Mr. Shoals," the
witness said, "and got hlin to come
down to see Mr. NIeoll. Shoals told
Mr. NIeoll that ho had heard Mrs.
Gould had been married to a man
named Dawson In Ilaltlmorc In 1SS2.
"And did I tell you that Helen
Gould had received a letter Haying
that Katlierlne Cloinmons had already
been married V" demanded Mr. NIeoll.
"Yes. The letter said that she hud
been married to a man named Wood

"Did Hnwley, or Woodward, say ho
had married Katlierlne Clemmons?"
"He wouldn't deny or alllrm that he
had married her, but he told us ho
knew a whole lot about her."
Mrs. Gould smiled bitterly when
these aspersions were cast on her past.
"ADAM'S APPLE A MYTH."
Theologian Who So Declares Admitted
to Presbyterian Ministry.
New York, June 15. Although the
Rev. Archibald Pluck, a young theo
logical graduate, declares that he does
not believe the Biblical nccounts of
Adam and Eve, the virgin birth or the
resurrection, ho was admitted to the
pulpit by the New York presbytery
after a warm debate on heresy.
Among the questions tired at the
young theological student during the
examination were the following:
"Do you believe the story of Adam
and Kve as related In the Bible?"
"Not In its literal sense. I accept It
as a figure," he replied,
"And do you not believe that they
fell from eating the apple?"
"Do you believe In the virgin birth
"I believe that Christ Is divine, but 1
do not accept the story of the virgin
"What Is your position as to the
"I do not believe in the llesh and

The l!ov. Dr. Wyllo of the Scotch
church, the ltev. Dr. Ilk-hards of the

President Taft's Philippine
IT WOULD EXEMPT 300,000 TONS
Many Democrats Vote With Re
publicans Against the Amend
ment, and It Musters Only
Washington, June 15. Sugar was
tlie stirring subject in the tariff debate
before the senate, being brought to the
front In connection with the condition
of the finance, committee's substitute
for the house provision of the tariff
bill regulating the admission of Philip
pine articles Into tho United States.
Immediate attention was then direct
ed to the clause providing a duty ou
sugar admitted into the Philippines
equal to that on sugar brought Into
the United States and exempting
300,000 tons of Philippine sugar from
duty when brought Into the United
Senator Brlstow criticised both pro
visions, nud his criticism opened the
way for a general debate, which was
participated in on the one side by
Messrs. Brlstow and Clapp and on the
other by' Senators Aldrlch and Lodge.
It was contended on the one hand
that the two provisions combined were
Intended to promote the Interests of the
American sugar trust and not to bene
fit the Philippine producers, while it
was argued hy the supporters of the
provision that to admit sugar Into the'
Islands free of duty would lie to open
the way for Its free admission into
tills country. It was also argued that
I he sugar producers of the Philippines
would be directly benefited by the
admission of their sugar into the
United States without requiring the
payment of a duty on it.
It was stated In open senate that
the Philippine paragraph had the in
dorsement of President Taft In ills
own handwriting, nnd Senator Aldrlch
stated that It had been Indorsed by
Mr. Aldrlch Insisted that the Philip
pine amendment provided practically
for a bounty to the sugar raiser of the
"I venture the prediction." he said,
"that the processes of rclinlng sugar
In the Philippines will be changed and
that this sugar will come to the United
Stalin In u rellned condition. They
will no longer make their sugar by the
old open kettle process. They will have
modern machinery nnd make tho best
lii's of sugar."
Senator Clapp took the view that the
admission of free sugar would benefit
the American Sugar Refining compa
ny. When, he said, the time comes to
vote for free hides It will not be ar
gued that It Is to benefit the cattle
raisers of tho Argentine republic or
any one else except the American pur
chaser. The two cases, he said, were
"It Is well understood and an open
secret that this proposition Is here nt
the request of the president of the
United States," said "Mr. Aldrlch. "and
that he desires It for a people he be
lieves to be wards of the United
"I am glad to hear that," interposed
Mr. Clapp in a tone of doubt.
"I think the senator from Minnesota
knew that before I snld it," retorted
the Rhode Island senator.
If tho president's wishes were so
carefully regarded, Mr. Clapp said,
the committee on flnnnce should have
considered his words favoring lower
tariff duties. So far ns ho knew the
senate had no direct communication
from the president.
"While I do not pretend to be his
official representative on this floor,"
said Mr. Aldrlch, "I do not transcend
my Idea of my obligation to the presi
dent when I Bay that I know that not
only is tho president In favor of legis
lation of this kind, but that he Is in
favor of tills identical legislation."
Resuming his remarks, Mr. Clapp
said the president had "means by
which he can communicate with the
"I do not believe," he added, "that
thu president Indorses any such fallacy
as that. Of all the claptrap work ever
reported for legislation this docs seem
to me to take the palm," he added with
"Tliis Is simply another Instance ot
the bunko game that is being played
upon the Filipino people In the course
of our benevolent policy of assimila
tion," declared Senator Stono after de
claring that the committee amendment
would at once deprive the Filipino ot
tho right to purchase retlncd sugar In
the world's market without the pay
ment of a duty,

SURVIVORS AT GIBRALTAR.
Glavonia's Cabin Passengers Praise
Coolness of Officers. ,
Gibraltar. June 15. The North Ger
man Lloyd steamer Prlnzess Irene ar
rived hero with the first class passen
gers of the Cunard steamer Slavoula.
which ran ushoro on Flores Island, one
of the Azores.
The Slavoula, which sailed from
New York ou June 3, met fair weather
until Hearing the Azores, when fog set
In. She was under a good head of
speed when she struck a rock off
Flores island. Tho water rushed In
and in an Incredibly short time Hooded
the hold nnd reached the engines.
The passengers were awakened by
the shock and flocked out on the decks.
It was then about half past 2 o'clock
In the morning. Those of the first and
second cabins behaved ndnilrably, but
the steerage passengers showed u good
deal of excitement. The officers of the
ship did everything possible to reas
sure the passengers, nnd tho band was
set to playing popular airs.
A call for help was sent out by wire
less, which was responded to by the
Prlnzess Irene, but long before her ar
rival on the scene the Slavonla's own
boats landed the passengers. The
Prlnzess Irene embarked the saloon
passengers early the following morn
ing. They are unanimous In praising
the coolness and kindness shown by
the captain, the officers and crow of
the wrecked steamer.
John Mitchell of Milwaukee in de
scribing the accident said that lie was
awakened about 2:30 a. in. by a great
crash. There was much commotion
when he reached deck, but when the
officers explained conditions tho pas
sengers became calm. Soon things ap
peared to be quite normal. Breakfast
wn-i served as usual, and the orchestra
kepi on playing for several hours. Aft
er breakfast an officer went ashore to
make arrangements for landing.
The Slavoula lay only a short dis
tance off Flores Island. No difficulty
was experienced In transferring the
passengers to land, and they remained
there until the Prlnzess Irene took
them off. No one was Injured but, ac
cording to Mr. Mitchell, a steerage
passenger attempted to commit sui
cide, but did not succeed.

Violation of Treaty Rights
In Hawaii Is Alleged.
OUTCOME OF JAPANESE STRIKE
Editor Negoro Complains of Search
of His Office and Seizure of
Private Papers by Amer
Honolulu, June 15. The situation
growing out of the Indictment by the
grand jury of the seventeen leaders In
the strike of Japanese plantation la
borers took an International turn when
M. Negoro of the editorial staff of the
.Tl Jl, the Japanese newspaper here,
who was taken Into custody when the
olllce of that paper was raided by the
authorities, made formal complaint to
the Japanese foreign olllce at Tokyo
of the violations of his treaty rights.
The alleged violation of his treaty
rights as a Japanese subject, he sets
forth In ills complaint, consists In the
search of his otlice and the seizure of
his private papers and documents by
the American territorial authorities
without due process of law.
Territorial Sheriff William Henrjr
ndnilts that the search and seizure
were made by force of arms nud with
out search warrants or process of law,
but contends that the papers seized
contained evidence of criminal pur
pose and that the courts of the terri
tory are open to Negoro t$c redress If
he has been damaged. .
Negoro was rearrested with Y. Sogo,
Y. Tnsakn and K. Kawamurn of the
editorial staffs of tho NIppu nnd the

grand jury charging them with "con

them with food. The place Is distant
and Inaccessible, but the sheriff lias
started for the scene to make nil in
vestigation. At nil other points on this island
quiet reigns, and no news of nny dis
turbances was received. Most of the
Japanese have returned to work on
the Kwn and Wnlalua plantations, and
there are full forces of strike breakers
on tho Honolulu nnd the Onhu planta
tions. It Is reported from Helo that the
Japanese there have selected a delega
tion to come to Honolulu and join In
the formal demand on the Planters' as
sedation for nn increase In wages to a
