In as by at by en- in Polish and import has by ENQUIRER. CINCINNATI. SATURDAY. FEBRUARY 16, 1907. 2 commission unless some one of the detense's advisers, one of counsel or an pert allenist, declares that Thaw la now sane.

But aside from that there must be sufficient evidence of insanity to convince the trial Judge, who alone has the power to appoint a commission, that the defendant is fosane. It happens in this particular case that no physician has made an examination of the defendant except the experts who have been called in. his behalf. And none of them has examined him for pe riod of two months: They swear that while he was insane at the time he shot White he has since recovered his It- was pointed out to-day that in the case, which caine before the Courts in 1884, the relatives of Rhinelander, who had whop a woman, joined with the District Attorney In an application for commission In lunacy. which the trial Judge granted.

Former Judge Curtis, however, took- the matter before the Court of Appeals, where It decided that, the defendant being. then able to consult tionally with hits counsel upon his defense. so commission was necessary. Counsel for Thaw declare that there are also other precedents against a commission. It seems clear, therefore, that unless Jorome succeeds in trapping one of the ex perta for the defense into a declaration that Thaw is now insane, there can be no commission.

Certainly Jerome's own perta cannot be relied upon to secure commission through their statements, alrice none of them has ever been able to examine Thaw at a closer distance than 30 feet across the courtroom. Not ore of them has ever touched Thaw or exchanged word with him. All talk about lunacy commission has resulted from the manner in which Jerome has met the attempta of the defense to get into the evtdence the conversations that Thaw had with the experts who He repeatedly offered to admit these conversationa if the defense would admit that Thaw was insane at the time the experts talked with him. Delmas Trapped Jerome. Mr.

Delmas. after exhausting every means of getting the conversations before the Jury, last made the concession demanded Jerome, but in a manner which entirely upset the calculations of the Promecutor. He drew from Dr. Evans, first, a statement that at the time of him first three visits to Thaw, or until October of last year, the prisoner was Insane; but that the succeeding five visits showed gradual return to sanity. Then Mr.

Delmas fixed the time of the conversation as during the first three visits. The move will enable him. to get before the Jury all of the conversations and greatly strengthen his case. It will be much easier for a Jury to believe that Thaw was etazy when he shot White, and continued an insane condition for three or four months thereafter, gradually recovering his reason later, than that he suddenly re covered his reason after having fired three shots from a revolver. Messrs.

MoPike, Hartridge and Peabody, well as Messes. Reilly and Delmas, all expressed their entire satisfaction to-day with the condition in which the case rests and their confidence in the ultimate result of the trial. Mrs. William, Thaw -spent four hours in Mr. Hartridge'4 office preparing for her ordeal on the witness stand next week.

Mra. Harry Thaw, attired in a neat brown gown, visited the Tombs and spent more than an hour with her husband. She declared to one of the keepers that she was feeling very well. Valentines For Thaw. Thaw, himself, was in good spirita to-day.

despite the delay in his trial. He received a bundle of belated valentines, and once more expressed his sympathy with Juror Bolton in his bereavement. Death, by the way. once more Invaded the Thaw circle to-day, when Michael D. Downey, better known as who for several months was Thaw's night keeper in the Tombs, passed away in Gouverneur Hospital.

Thaw sent some money to Warden Flynn, of the Tombs, for wreath to be placed on "Big casket. A conference of Thaw's counsel will be held to-morrow for the purpose of arranging their plans for the resumption of the trial on Monday. So far as the program has been arranged now, Dr. Evans will first he recalled for the purpose of detailing the conversations he had with Thaw in the Tomba. His cross-examination will be postponed as will be the cross-examination all of the experts, until they nave made answer to the final hypothetical question which will be put to them after all the evidence of the defense has been put in.

With Dr. Ivans temporarily stood aside, Dre. Bingaman and Demar will be called to teetify to the mental state of various members of the Thaw family, after which the will will be offered in evidence. It is expected that Jerome will make fignt against' its admission. but it is belteved that all of these matters can be disposed of before the noon recess.

If this belief is realized Mrs. Evelyn Thaw will be recalled immediately upon the reconvening of Court in the afternoon and she will -aereupon resume her interrupted story and continue until her direct examnation has been concluded and she has been handed over to Jerome for cross-examination. The Central Figure. Mrs. Thaw is still the central figure in the trial.

Her story 1s still that upon which the conviction or acquittal of her husband will be hung. and her nation remains the one great obstacle that must be surmounted if Thaw 18 to walk out of the courtroom a free gian. Mrs. William Thaw will follow her daughter-in-law on tostand and she will be sueceeded by Anthony: Comatock, his agents, Miss May McKenzie and several other ineldental witnesses who will finally give way to the experts with whom the detense will bring its case to ciose. A novel side light on the Thaw case came to light: to-day in the receipt of a cable message from London that the famous Lloyd's Insurance has acepted a heavy risk on the life of Thaw at 30 guineas per thousand.

This is practically a bot of 1,000 to 30 that Thaw will be acquitted, and it indicates the feeling of public, opinion in Engiand, Still nearer home there was a similar indication of the drift. An Easton (Penn.) newspaper selected Jury of 12 well known and representative citizens and asked them to pass upon the case. 'Every one of the 12, voted for acquittal. It is to be borne in mind, however, that this verdict was based on the case so far as it has been heard. Dr.

Frank P. McGuire, the official Tombs prison "physician, will be called by Distr'et Attorney Jerome as one of the chief witnesses for the state in the Thaw trial. The Prosecutor expects -Dr. McGuire's testimony to lay the foundation for the opinion of allenists that Thaw wits sane on the night of June 25, when he killed Stanford White. Dr.

McGuire has repeatedly been called an expert in homicide trials, and has hibited original methods in reaching. conelusions as to the sanity of defendante, He will not be called as an expert in the case, but merely as a general medical practitioner. The Tombs physician is of the opinion that Thaw, when he killed White, knew the quality of the action and knew the distinetion between right and wrong, but his value to the state as a witness line in the long observation he has had of Thaw and the data he has given the District Attorney, which will be recorded in the trial on his evidence. Messrs. Flint, McDonald and Mabin, the allenista representing the District Attorney'e office, have been prohibited -from making a personal examination of Thaw.

They have, however, been able to see the prisoner through the sharp eyes and acute hearing of Dr. McGuire, and it is said they are in good position to pass upon his mental state. During the 'eight months Thaw has been in the Tombs McGuire has seen him more than 1,000 times and always with a view of making an observation of his mentat state. The physician has kept a careful record of Thaw's words, actions and moods and prepared to give every day's details since June 26: His Eye on Thaw. Dr.

McGuire has watched Thaw his daily chats with his mother and wife, his other relatives and his lawyers, and, it is his own way. the part of the prisoner as shown by his. said, will testify to a domineering spirit on words and acts and a determination 00. to have While treating Thaw for various slight ailments the doctor has had long talks with. and is prepared to state that he spoke intelligently and logically upon every topic and gave no suggestion of a confusion of ideas or delusions.

Dr. McGuire' observations particularly emphasize Thaw's idea of his own importance and his inclination to look down upon even his lawyers at times, but to the Tombs physician this exhibition was not in the nature of the "exaggerated ego" referred to by Dr. Evans. He looks upon it rather as a demonstration of an overpowering self-conceit which had never been hampered by environment. During the hours of night.

while Thaw has been asleep, Dr. McGuire has watched him from the cell door. The sleep of the prisoner was as quiet as that of a well-ted, THE healthy child. the doctor will testify, He never had any nightmares of disturbances of sleep, such as are noticed in well-defined cases of insanity. A Normal Record.

According to the record of these observationa, Thaw's stomach and other vital organs were congested when he frat tered the Tombs. Dr. McGuire set close watch on the prisoner for symptoms suggesting habit of any sort, but he did not find the change in Thaw's life and environment productive of any marked physical disturbance. Thaw has alwaye had good appetite, and has gained about 13 pounds since his Imprisonment. The doctor has recorded several severe outbursts of temper from trifling causes, but all prisoners give way to their feelings at times in the Tombs, when brooding over their position, The diary of Dr.

McGuire covers a wide range of topics, and much of It, it is said, in competent evidence and will be repeated in the trial. The pleture, as outlined in that diery, that of a man with a brain below the normal Iri strength, an active but. unstable reasoning process, an ungovernable temper, an inclination to suspicion, a nature marked by selfishness in his actions and desires and a reasoning faculty not all sound, but not sufficiently- unsound to be unable to distinguish right from wrong. Supports Evelyn's Story. The only corroboration thus far brought out of the statement of Evelyn Nesbit Thaw that she told her story of Stanford White's treatment of her to her husband many montha before the architect wag killed came to light to-day when Dr.

Josiah Strong said that Thaw had told -him the story more than two years The Doctor has been known in public movement- for many years. He 18 now the President of the American Institute for Social Service. the work of which Governor Hughes has indorsed. Dr. Strong 1a not certain of the time of Thaw's appeal to him.

He figures it A9 about 18 months prior to the tragedy, but he recollects the substance of the conversation with the man now on trial for his life. "He told me such a story of horror and outrage that it made by blood said he "He mentioned no names, but he undoubtedly referred to Stanford White and Evelyn Nesbit. He charged that of Incarnate devils had a den of vice in this city where they ruined young girls, and he wanted me to tell him how he should proceed to break it Dr. Strong did not at that time know young Thaw. But he had had a slight acquaintance some years before with the father.

William Thaw. and. Mrs. Thaw. He also had met Mrs.

Thompson, stepwinter of the prisoner. Dr. Strong advised him to see Anthony Comstock, who was far more familiar with the proper methods of proceeding in such matters. He listened to the whole story. In order to be able to judge how the young man should proceed.

The Astounding Feature. struck me as one of the astoundIng feature of the said Dr. Strong. "was the persistence and patience with which Thaw said these men pursued their victims. Thaw desired to break up this den, but all efforts had been thwarted by the Influence of the wealthy man at the head of it.

his recital young Thaw did not indicate to me that he was personally Interested in the girl whose experience he related. He told her story as An Illustration of the methode pursued by these men. He did not even say that he had been told the facts by the woman herself. But his knowledge of her experiences was so intimate that he must have been told her. At least so it seemed to me at the time.

have read a small part of the story told by Evelyn Thaw on the witness standthe most essential -and it was entirely consistent with that Thaw told me two or more years ago. "Though the story shocked me, I had no particular occasion to remember the affair in detail. Many persons consult me in the course of a year or so, and it would be impossible for me to remember the details of the conversations with them. "However, I recollect he said this wealthy man had finally succeeded in getting the young woman to his rooms in the den where he had ruined her. he got through I told him that Anthony Comstock was the man he should see; that Mr.

Comstock wns a lawyer who knew just how to get evidence in such a case. I have not seen him since. From what I have heard I suppose that he did go to Mr. Comstock, and that an attempt to get evidence against the men in the den was ABRUPT CLOSE Of the Trial May Come Next WeekJerome's Strange Move. BY ARROCTATED PRESS.

New York, February observers of the Thaw trial, which has been postponed for several days because of the death of a juror's wife, believe the present trend of the trial as shown in the last two days 1s toward a commission In lunacy to determine officially Harry Thaw's condition of mind. This belief is suggested by District Attorney Jerome's apparent willingness to admit part of' the will, by his readiness to withhold technical objections to the testimony of Thaw's family physicians tending to throw light on the defendant's mental status and by his policy of yesterday in admitting without opposition the conversation between Thaw and Dr. Evans when the latter was examining the prisoner in the Tombs. Counsel for Thaw have reached the opinion that the trial may be terminated abruptly any day next week from this cause. So fully convinced are they that Jerome will make this move that they are planning to fight him on this line.

Thaw himself is credited with having declared that he would not face the asylum in prefterence to Sing Sing and the death chamber. 80 it can be seen with what feeling this expected move of Mr. Jerome is regarded in the camp of the defense. One of Thaw's lawyers, in speaking of the probable plan for a lunacy commission, said: "As the case has progressed from day to day we have become more and more convinced by. the conduct of the District Attorney and his experts, who are observing the defendant for him, that it has been and is his purpose to lead the case up to the point where he can apply properly for 8 commission in lunacy.

don't want the boy declared insane. we want him acquitted," he added. 'The following statement as to District Attorney Jerome's position with regard to the sanity or Insanity of Harry K. Thaw was made to-day: Jerome does not know whether or not Thaw is insane. None of his assistants know.

None of the experts retained for the prosecution know. These experts have not had an opportunity to examine Thaw. ether 88 to his physical condition or his mental caliber. They are at present in Court at the trial with an open mind. They would like to know.

"If any experts retained for the defense. some of whom have already testifled, will say authoritatively that in their opinion Thaw is now insane. the District Attorney will join with them in the request to the Court for an appointment of a commission in lunacy to decide on the question of the defendant's THAW'S VALET Comes Prepared To Tell a Weird Story of Influence By Hypnotism. SPECIAL DISPATCH TO THE ENQUIRER. Boston, February Harry K.

Thaw had been in the habit of using deadly weapons when in a paroxysm of rage, long before the Madison Square Roof Garden tragedy, is the startling statement made to-day by James Morley, for more than five years valet to the young milNonaire. Morley arrived here to-day on the steamship Saxonia, from London, on his way to New York to offer himself as a witness for the defense. Mr. Morley exhibits knife wound on the right wrist about four inches long and a bullet wound in the leg. inflicted by Thaw in fits of passion to which he was stirred, the former valet declares, by agined wrongs.

That Thaw's incentive to the slaying of Stanford White was due not alone by his insane jealousy of the architect, but to the machinations of a man named Marriette, who held the young millionaire in the grip of a strange personal influence, is the statement which Morley say's he is prepared to prove. The former valet did not leave the employ of Thaw until some time after the latter's marriage to Evelyn Nesbit. He said, "Harry was very generous and kindly when he was himself. But he was of a sort of a Jekyll-Hyde nature ever since he fell into the clutches of a French hypnotist four or five years ago in Pittsburg. "Thaw acted more and more peculiarly Marriette's influence grew upon him.

Some times he would fly into a rage and smash the pictures and furniture in his apartment. Thaw used to tell me over and over again that White caused all his worries. The Frenchman was working his power over him all the time, and his spells became more frequent. He raged violently against JUROR JOSEPH H. BOLTON, Whose Absence on Account of the Death of His Wife.

Her daughter, Mrs. Isaac J. Galbraith, resides at 1317 Fifteenth avenue. Mra. Nesbit's son, Winfleld Nesbit, is the father of Evelyn Thaw.

Great have been made to keep her identity secret since the Thaw trial began. Mrs. Nesbit says she would under no consideration go to New York and testify against the character of Evelyn's mother for the reason tha she believes a trip overland would end in her death. She rays she believes they have been searching the country for her, and she has done her best to keep her location a secret. She said her son Winfield was a prominent lawyer before his illness, which lasted a long while.

She has a life-sized photograph of him hanging on the wall, which shows him with full beard Mrs. Nesbit last saw Evelyn when she was 15 years old. That was after her father's death. Evelyn was living in Pittsburg with her mother, but soon afterward they moved New York. When asked what she thought of the case, the grandmother said at once: "No jury of good men would convict my grandchild's husband.

From all I hear he way a good man, and I believe he did right when he put an end to White, who, I guess, was a very bad man." Isaac Galbraith, her son-in-law. drew the plans for one of the World's Fair buildings In Chicago. It was due to his efforts that the grandmother's whereabouts have been kept secret. EVELYN'S MOTHER Was Offered $100,000 To Favor Thaw's Suit, Says the Milliner. APECIAL DISPATCH TO THE ENQUIRER.

New York, February is the plan of the defense in the Thaw murder trial to use Mrs. J. J. Caine, the Boston milliner and intimate friend of Evelyn Nesbit Thaw, to combat the testimony favorable to Stanford White, which it is anticipated Howard will give if sworn as a witness for the state: Mra. Caine spent to-day at a consultation with Mr.

Delmas and other counsel for Thaw. To a reporter Mrs. Caine declared she had heard Harry Thaw ask Evelyn Nesbit's mother for her hand at the time the girl was at school at Pompton, N. and accompanying the proposal of marriage with a promise that if Evelyn became his wife he would, on the wedding day, settle on Mrs. Holman, then Mrs.

Nesbit, $100,000 or more. The mother's answer to this, she sald, was that she would try her best to persuade Evelyn to accept Thaw. have come to New York." said Mrs. Caine, "to do all that it is possible for me to do to help Florence. "After Florence went on the stage and White became interested in her Mrs.

Holman did not question what the motive of that Interest might be. I know that she belleved White was simply. infatuated with the child's beauty."

NAME Aston Madeira" Is That of Her Soldier Brother, and Mrs. Stephenson Wants It Changed: As the result of the recent trouble in the Aston Madeira Chapter, U. D.

of Covington, several charter members of the lodge have threatened to withdraw their membership and have also asked that the name of the chapter be changed. Mrs. Dashiel Stephenson, the first Prestdent of the lodge and its organizer, has protested against the controversy, which arose several months ago among the members after the annual election. One faction claimed that there had been an error in the telling of the ballots and that Mrs. Mattie Bruce Reynolds had been elected President instead of Mrs.

Benjamin Ashbrook, who has been so recognized by the state board. In her protest Mrs. Stephenson asks that the name Aston Madetra be changed, because when the chapter was first organized the name adopted was that of her brother. who was a Confederate sol- dier. A number of the charter members of the lodge recently tried to secure concessions from the opposing factions in the trouble, it is said, but could do nothing.

Mrs. Roy. McKinney, State President of the order, was also appealed to, but stated that owing to an amendment recently adopted to the constitution she-was unable to settle the trouble. The active members of the chapter do not seem to be able to arrange the situation to the satisfaction of all concerned. and it is said that 89 result there will in all probability be formed an entirely new chapter in Covington.

A petition was circulated among the House Republicans and many signed it. It was said, however; that it was not another anti-Hanly movement, as Representative Edwards and other insurgents were not Identified with It.

The supposition was that the life insurance lobby thinks that, owing to the row in the Senate over the BabcockFarber bill, the time is ripe to deal It a death blow in the House by having. the Olive bill substituted. The Republican leaders who heard of the movement expressed great alarm. Several of them admitted that such action would result in an irreparable Injury to the party, and they are hustling around to keep it from being carried out.

He proposes to introduce it later. Defeated, of Course. The bill was amended to provide that the commission must begin proceedings in the lower Court when attempting force a readjustment of rates. The bill provided that such proceedings should be instituted in the Appellate Court. which was given original jurisdiction in such matters.

HARD-LUCK Story Related To Police By Operators Who Planned To Tap a Poolroom Wire Frank Robinson and Harry F. Meyers, telegraph operators, who were arrested Thursday night by Detectives Jackson and Callahan after they had everything planned to tap the wires leading to Huber's poolroom and "clean up the bookies," talked freely to Chief of Detectives Crawford yesterday. "There's nothing to said Robinson.

"I toss up the sponge. You can't get away with the bookies. We had everything lined up to sting them good and hard across the river, and here you go and spill the beans. Why didn't you let us go through with it? A fellow ought to have a medal if he's able to mace a poolroom. They get the people's money.

Look at the odds they post on races. It's just like getting money from home for them. Anybody who goes up against it has get about 88 much of a chance as a rabbit "I have been stung by them so often I'd like a chance to get back at them. The police are talking about breaking up poolrooms. Why don't you let us fellows loose and we will put a crimp in them for you? Just hand a few wire-taps into them and they will holler for mercy.

I am ready to put them out of the business any old also told of another chapter in their hard-luck story which came off in Windsor, Canada, a few months ago. He said he and Meyers had pulled off a wiretapping job that was a "pippin." The tap worked fine and everything was lovely. They walked back into town with their fingers itching for their part of the $4,000 they knew their "stall" had cleaned up at the poolroom. When they got there they found that their confederate had disappeared with the money and that the poolroom men had notified the police, who were waiting to take them to the Windsor jail. Robinson and Meyers were fined $50 and costs each.

They never found the man who was in on the job with them and got the money: In addition to having their plans for a "killing" across the river spoiled the two wire-tappers are bewailing the fact that they put up $140 to buy a complete outfit of instruments necessary for the job, and these the police have confiscated. The men were being held on suspicion yesterday and will probably be charged with loitering today. WELL KNOWN To the Police of Detroit and Windsor Are the Two Prisoners.
