JUSTICE MILLS DEALS A SUR
PRISING BLOW TO SLAYER
OF STANFORD WHITE.
White Plains, N. Y., July 30.-It
was the judge, not the prosecutor, who
ruffled the assurance of H. K. Thaw
to. tire witness stand today. Ex
agggerated ego. "the insane delusion
that the possessor is a person of su
pre'me ability and importance," Inay
prove the bar that will keep the bars
of Matteawat closed upon him. W"'hen
District Attorney Jerome had finished
his ross examinatitln Justice Mills
arsked Thaw a series of questions,
considered by many as more perti
nent than any of those asked during
the 14 hours that Thaw has been on
'They are going to argue with me,"
said the justice, "that all the way
through you have shown an ex
aggerated ego. You have had the is
sistance of one of the leading at
torneys of this country, but I have
observed you constantly inter! upt hint
and make suggestions, fIt your for
m1er litigations you have constantly
changer! your: counsel. Why don't you
trust Mr. Mtrschauserl"
Thaw was clearly nonpulsed. This
was a feature of his conduct upon
which Mr. Jerome had not touched.
"But I do trust Mr. Mtrschtuser,"
he hastened to assure the justice.
"Haven't you felt all the way
through that you are better able to
conduct this case?" asked the court.
"No,' answered the defendant, "ex
cept in tile. case of Mr. H-artridge.
Thaw admitted that he might have
lhterrrutted Mr. Marschauser, but
pleaded that it was only because he
I wanted to make suggestions regard
ing the evidence and not because he
felt quait fied to take the case out of
his attorny's hands.
Taking up the lead suggested by the
court, Mr. Jerome later dwelt on the
"exaggerated ego," quoting from opin
Ions from alienists tt the homicide
trials. He quoted Dr. Britton D.
Evans, who had complained that Thaw
would not listen to arguments and
could not lie convinced. Another ex
tert commented on the prisoner's
"rapid flow of words and rapid,man
ner," and a faculty of expression far
beyond the normal.
Evelyn Thaw conferred with tile
state's attorneys during the day.
