ttu White, Federal Alienist,
k Declares It's Safe to
K ' Free Harry.
THINKS HIM NORMAL.
Testimony Causes Surprise
Even to Thaw Sympathizers
j May Prolong Hearing.
(SfxHtl to The Errnlac World.)
IWJI1TB PLAINS, N. T., July 10.-No
Itttle excitement ai caused during the
noon rtcets of the Thaw hearing to
day, when a motion picture machine
company attempted to get picture of
Thaw, his family and those directly con
nected with the trial. As soon as coun
sel for Thaw ?aw the camera placed so
a to catch the prisoner as he came out
of the courthouso he threw Thaw back
Into the hullOlng and attempted to splr.
it him through a rear entrance. Here
Thaw was again confronted by the pic
ture men, and with the prisoner keeper
he started on the run for Jail.
However th photograph company waa
uocessful In getting pictures of. Mrs.
Mary C. Thaw, the Countess of Yar
mouth, Justice Keogh, Attorney Jerome
and Attorney Shcarn as they were leav
ing the court.
Dr. William A. White, a Federal nllen
lit, resumed tho stand when court waa
reopened and his cross-examination was
taken up by Mr. Jerome. The former
District-Attorney used every art In his
attempt to break down the alienist's
testimony with but little success.
The Government expert was even
more emphatic on cross-examination
than on the direct In his assertion that
Thaw Is sane and normal, so far as his
freedom from the taint of Incanlty Is
"Do .you think that It was normal for
Thaw, a man of thirty-six, to draw pic
turespictures of nude women being
beaten?" asked Jerome.
"I see nothing abnormal about It,"
stated the doctor.
REGARD WHITE TE8TIMONY AS
AID TO THAW.
Taking the alienist's testimony at tho
trial Jerome attempted to prove dlscrer
ancles between that nnd his present evl
dence. He failed to accomplish this,
however, and'when Dr. White waa tnlt
en on redirect by 'Mr. Shearn It wns
whispered about that his testimony had
done more to aid Thaw's flght for free
dam than that of any other witness.
That Mrs. Mary C. Thaw will spend
at least IM.WO for the testimony of al
ienists before this hearing Is completed
waa evidenced by Dr. White's statement
that he Is receiving 1 250 a day and ex
peases for his services. Dr. White has
been here twelve days, so that ho has
already recolved more than t,uw. Adding
to this fflie fees of Dr. Frederick .Mills
and Dr. Adolph Meyer, who have been
hr throughout the trial, and It Is evl- i
dent that the final bill for this expert1
testimony will ahow over JM.OCni. j
Dr. White's last statement on direct
examination waa a reiteration of hi
flrat: "X think Thaw Js sano and that
It would not be dangerous to the public
Mfety If he were released."
Jtr. Jerome first took up the Delmas
letter and newspaper clippings with
notations wrlten by Thaw, asking Dr.
White if he thought the notations wero
coherent and indicative of the sanity of
"I do," answered the doctor.
A chuckle from Mr. Jerome caused
Mr. Shearn to request: "Stenographer,
please note that at this point Mr. Jo.
"Do you think those writings are the
writings of a sane man?" asked
"Under the circumstances I think
they are normal," was tho answer.
Jerome then read a notation la which
Thaw wrote that the bequests In the
codicil of his will would save many
young American girls.
"And do you mean that you think
that Is a sane statement?"
Certainly," answered the doctor;
"the bequests, if carried out, would
have broken up the practices of White."
"And aave the aouls of young Ameri

a departure from ths normal.
"And la there any deviation from the
normal to be noticed In Thaw?"
"Absolutely none," aawered the phyjl
dan. "Do you believe, doctor, that It would
be dangerous to give Thaw his liberty?"
asked Mr. Shearn.
CALLS THAW'S RELEASE NO
INo." testified the alienist, "I do not
think It would bo dangerous to him, nor
would his release prove a menace to the
peace and safety of Iho public."

Wo must admit that tho young

themselves criticised and their cos

young men who have taken part in
tho discussion of tho dress-paint-and-powder

has questioned tho right or Justice

New York Johnny. Wo can safely do so without fear of hurting tho feel

YOUNG MEN OF FINE FAMILIES
BUT COARSE MANNERS.
Here Is another letter from a reader
who thinks that the glass of crltlrfim
anould be turned for a while upon the
pear Madam-I read with a great
deal of interest your recent article
on tho young women you observed
In the vicinity of Broadway and Ono
Hundred and Forty-fifth street and
their dress. I think If you would
stand on or near that corner any
evening you would observe a large
crowd of freakishly dressed young
"men," who make It their headquar
ters, and whose chief paatlme It lllrt
Ing and annoying every girl or young
woman who passes.
Their mode of dress Is by far more
absurd than the girls you saw, and
their actions are a disgrace to the
And tho peculiar part Is that they
are all sons of "fine families," and
some have sisters of their own. If
they are the best the "flno families"
can produce, then I guess wo will
have to turn to the slums for MKN.
OBJECTIONABLE TYPE OF YOUNG
MEN IN NEW YORK.
Still another letter furnlslios a vivid
description of tho objectionable type of
young men In New York. There Is no
denying that wo have all met him.
Dear Madam I have read with
Interest your several articles on tne
BUbject of the freakish dress of the
women of to-day. Howeer,
whether you bo right or wrong, 1
should like to point out to you the
ridiculous dress of the men of to
day. When walking on Ilroadway
or any notable street or avenue, one
chances to meet what I would trm
as up-to-date English Johnnies.
Their tight pant and sometimes
half way up to their knees, their
narrow-shouldered coats, collars thr
are almost choking them, their flash
ily colored ties and their English
sailors sitting back on their necks
are what Is termed the latest style
for men of to-day. This manner of
dress, In my opinion, Is more, ridicu
lous and absurd than tho way tn
which tho girls of to-day bedeck
themselves, II. L. H.
