Butler Shoots and Hangs Him?

Sister-in-Law at Devon.
Philadelphia, June 26?Mis? Hattie
M. Watson, sister-in-law of Frederick
E. Hastings, a well-to-do resident of
Devon, a suburb, was shot and killed by
Jerry Thomas, a negro butler, at the
Hastings home tc-day. The servant fled
to a barn and committed suicide. An
investigation by the Delaware County
authorities failed to reveal a motive for
the crime, and a coroner's jury ren?
dered a verdict that the murderer had
The negro shot Miss Watson during
a struggle. Thomas'?? wife, who is also
employed in the Hastings home, came
f?n the scere its Miss Watson was try?
ing to escape. Before the butler's wife
could interfere he ?hot Miss Watson,
dragged the body to the porch and
then ran from the place. Later Thom?
as's body was found hanging in a
nearby barn with a bullet in the head. '
Miss Watson, who was formerly of
Northampton, Mass., was about fifty
years old, and had been making her
home with her brother-in-law and sis?
ter for some years. She was known to
be of a quiet disposition and not given
to quarrelling with the sen-ants, ac?
cording to relatives.
One theory advanced as a cause for
the murder is that Miss Watson may
have reported the butler for something
he had not done properly. Mr. and Mrs.
Hastings, who were away from home
when the shooting occurred, said that
the butler had been of an inoffensive
disposition and had never caused the
family any trouble.

WHY THAW QUIT
OUT BY STATE
Scandals Said to Have
Caused Him to Get 3-Hour
Notice from Dr. Eliot.
WAS NOT EXPELLED,
Search for Evelyn Ncsbit and
Missing Whip Exhibit for
Jury Still On.
Here is the story of Thaw at Har?
vard and how he left, as unearthed,
they say, by the research workers of
the Attorney Generai's office who have
been nosing around in ancient college
history. It was twenty-three year? ago
that Thaw received three hours' time
in which to deprive the university of
The reason that incident is being
brought back to haunt him now is that
the state attorneys are convinced he
was manifesting even in those remote
years what they regard as the incur-1
able and perverted form of insanity i
which led him to kill Stanford White
and for which they want to thrust him
back into Matteawan.
In the first year of his college dnys,
the detectives of the Attorney Gen?
eral's office have reported to Frank
Cook and A. I.. Becker, the deputies
in charge of the state case, Thaw lived
at Mrs. Emma Spyvee's eminently re?
spectable hoarding house, at 38 North
Aveiiue. now Massachusetts Avenue,
He ha<i a way of enticing youngsters
to his room, Mr. Becker said yester?
day, and it is believed that even then
he flagellated them, as it has been
shown in previous habeas corpus pro
ceedmes he whipped young girls. But
one night he made the mistake of in?
viting to his room the young son of
the policeman on post.
Case Was Hushed I'p.
The detectives say that when Thaw
began to bent the boy he made an out?
cry and ran screaming from the room
to his father, who hurried back with
him to Thaw's room in time to fin?l
corroborative circumstances of the
youngster's tale. In some way, how?
ever, that ?matter was hushed up.
There was no arrest, and the incident
was not at that time called to the at?
tention of the college authorities.
As a result of it, however, Thaw
had to find room-, elsewhere, and went
to live at Quincy Hall. For about a
>ear he lived there without get?
ting into open tiouble. But there be?
gan to be talk, and finally, it is said,
thero was an attack on three boys,
one of them the son of the janitor of
There was no hushing it up this
time, and report of the matter, with
full circumstance.? and information of
previous actions by Thaw, was laid
fully before President Eliot, He was
so thoroughly convinced of the truth?
fulness of the reports that he sent for
Thaw privately, deciding upon a
course that would save the college
He told Thaw at noon that if he
would leave by 3 o'clock there woulil
be nothing more said or done, but if
he did not he would call for a thor?
ough investigation by the college fac?
ulty. That was enough for Thaw. By
3 o'clock he was gone.
Want Eliot'* Testimony.
It is for the purpose of getting this
testimony into the form of legal evi
dence that a commission will be sent
to Dr. Eliot to take his testimony.
This commission will go to his sum?
mer home at Bar Harbor Wednesday.
"The reason we are so anxious to
get every detail of this college scan?
dal into the record," said Mr. Becker
yesterday, "is because the alienists
hold that the mental condition ex?
hibited by Thaw then is incurable. It
is on this theory that he is incurably
and dangerously insane that we seek
his return to Matteawan. Thaw tells
the truth when he says he was not ex?
pelled. He simply took a discreet de?
Mr. Becker said the whip with
which Thaw flagellated girls in his
flat, which he kept under the name of
Professor Keeil, and which was pro?
duced in evid.'nce at previous trials,

fort has been made by state detec?
tives to find it. The last seen of it
was when it was an exhibit in^ the

Immediately after followed a special

IS PARIS RUMOR
Blamed for Inaction and
Heavy Losses Among
Troops at Front.
TO AVERT BREAK
Went to France to Make Final
Appeal, but Commander
Pari*, June 17 (correspondence if
The Tribune). Field Marshal Sir John
French, the much praised commander
of the British army around Ypres, is
likely soon to find himself kicked up?
stairs and out of the JK&y, following
the recent precedent in Lord Kitchen- '
er's case, according to reports from the
front. Following the British custom,
it is predicted that there will be as
little scandal as possible and that it
will be postponed till the last possitde
moment, but an announcement is ax
pected shortly that Sir John's health
has given way and that he has received
the Order of the Garter, or some simi?
lar honor, and retired to England.
Every effort, it is reported, has been
made to prevent this. Though England
has been fuming for weeks over the
failure of Erench to start the prom?
ised "spring drive," and though there
have been bitter complaints over th?i
increasing list of casualties and utter
absence of results, the government has
exerted itself in many ways to smooth
over the troubles that have been brew?
ing at Staff Headquarters . nd to cet
the machinery in motion. Only recent?
ly, while the fate of his Cabinet waa
still trembling in the balance. Premier
Asquith went to France, ostensibly to
visit the trenches, but really, it is
understood, to make a final appeal to
French. That appeal, it is now known,
failed, and it is declared the crisis can?
not be long delayed.
I>i?.-:ii i ?fa? tinn at Front.
As a matter of fact, the disorganiza?
tion, factionalism an?l "every man for
himself" attitude which has prevente?!
the sending of adequate supplies from
England, forced a crisis in the Cabinet
and now is showing itself in the bitter
fight against Lloyd George's efforts to
get the factories to work, Is. fully re?
flected at the front. Not only in France,
but at the Dardanelles, the trouble has
been felt, and there are whispers that
Sir Ian Hamilton, the commander 0:1
Gallipoli, will soon be called on to ex?
plain why the death roll has been so
heavy and progress so slight.
But it is in France that the situation
is most critical. There, it is known,
French has at his command three
quarters of a million men to guard a
front of only thirty-one miles. Op?
posed to him have been, most of the
time, few troops and those of poor
quality. He has the accumulation of a
winter's production of munitions and
yet the Germans have not been seri?
ously attacked, and since spring opened
the British forces have lost rather
than (rained ground.
The first sign of the real condition
of affairs came with the attempt to put
the blame for this on Kitchener an
attempt which, it is charged originated
with (ieneral French, and, it is nmted,
was inspired by Lloyd Georre. It was
openly handle by Lord Northcliffe.
The charges that the supply of shells
was inadequate were made (rood, and
Lloyd George was nut in charge of the
task of providing them, but the trouble
was not cured. Still the English army
made no move.
And now it is gradually coming to
light that there were disputes between
French and Kitchener other than that
about shells disputes in which French
is not so well supported as he was on
the munition? question. Chief of
these, and the one on which opinion i?
most evenly balanced, is that of the
use of the new army.
Differences with Kitchener.
French wishes to use the new troops
as drafts to till gaps in the ranks, ar?
guing that the green men will be
steadier if they take their baptism of
fire supported by veterans. Kitchener,
exceedingly proud of his new force and
believing them the equal of any now in
the field, wants the new army used as
units, keeping the formations and offi?
cers with which they have been trained.
French refused to give way so did
Kitchener and so the new army is, for
1 the most part, useless at present.
On the other hand, the most serious
> charge against French has to do with

Kaiser Said to Have Transferred
Troops for Fresh Attack on
London, June 26.?The Russians,
continuing successfully to hold their
lines along the Dniester, after a six
day battle have defeated the Aus?
tro-Germans at Kozara and Rud
zany, northwest of Halicz, accord?
ing to Petrograd. At Martinowo
(Martynoffstany?), the report says,
a similar attempt to gain a foot?
hold on the Russian side of the river
bank failed, and Grand Duke Nicho?
las's troops captured 40 officers and
At Kosmierjine the Austrians
were repulsed on June 2 and 23,
after having previously been de?
feated at Snovidow, and were driven
across the Dniester, fighting a rear?
guard battle and losing heavily.
These reverses have caused a Ger?
man concentration in the vicinity of
Kosmierjine. and new and stubborn?
ly contested battles are imminent.
Both Side? Lose Heavily.
A German force attempting to
co-operate in this region is descend?
ing the Lemberg-Brzezany Railroad
and is being stubbornly opposed.
Both sides have lost heavily in th?
I Dniester River fighting. General von
Linsingen's right flank and centre wer?
j badly cut up when the Russians thrw
j them back ?cross the stream.
The Russians have been fortifying
their line? from the river to the Mus
j covite frontier, and, with the Austro
! German line? of communication length?
ening daily, the task of forcing the
1 Czar's armies eastward becomes more
and more formidable. Although Ber
| lin claim? that the Teutonic allies have
I been forging ahead between the Dnies?
ter and the district which they occu?
pied east of Lemberg, the advance
lacks the characteristics of the im?
petuous rush so noticeable in former
stage? of the Galician campaign.
A dispatch from Amsterdam says
several trains loaded with heavy guns
have left Essen for the German front
on the Bzura River, in Poland, where
I it is believed they will be used in an
i advance against Warsaw.
j ? Warsaw Drive Etpected.
Since the fall of Lembe g military
experts in London have expressed the
belief that the Austro-German allies
would not be content with forcing the
! Russians beyond the borders of Ga?
licia, but would attempt to continue
their terrific drive and capture War?
saw. On previous occasions the Ger?
mans have hammered their way to a
point Jmost within artillery range of
Warsaw, but have been driven back
, by the forces under Grand Duks Nich?
The success of the Teutonic allies in
the Galician campaign was due largely
to a preponderance of artillery and the
expenditure of an overwhelming num?
ber of shells. If additional heavy guns
have been sent from Essen, where tha?
? famous Krupp works are located, it
would seem to indicate an intention to
continue in Poland operations of a sim
: ilar nature.
Papers found on Austrian and Ger?
m?n prisoners, a Petrograd dispatch
states, show that the troops under
Field Marshal von Hindenburg were a?
??ured by their commander that "we,
shall enter Warsaw June 28; Gsliela
will be entirely cleared of Russians by
June 30, and after that peace can be
concluded with Rusai?."
Germans Trapped Beyond Rlv?r.
The latest official communique issued
! by the Russian General Stan says:
"On the Tanew front, in the direction
I of Zolkitw and Lemberg, there was no
important change. The enemy attempt?
ed to attack us along the railway lead
; ing from Lemberg to Kamenka and
"On the Dniester River during th?
right of the 23d we drove back beyond
the river the remainder of the Ger?
mans who crossed the previous day In
the Kozsny district. In the region of
Martynoffstany on the evening of th?
23d we captured the remnants of th?
enemy who had crusse.1 the Dniester,
altogether fifteen officers and about
"Notwithstanding the disastrous re
', suits of this crossing, the Germans and
Austrians attempted the very sam?
night to throw their forces across th?
Dniester by bridges constructed south
of Bukaszowice, they having previously
