"Do you Intend to brlnR the Decker

Decker's chief counsel, Martin T. Man

Decker was told yesterday afternoon
by Father Cashln, his spiritual adviaer
fit Sing Sing, th.it the Court of Appeils
had lefused to go through a reargument
of Its own decision denying Docker a

Several witnesses for the Iynpg Island
Railroad testified yesterday In Mrs.
S Osgood Pell's 2;o,000 damage suit.
Instituted by reason of the death ot her
husband, that the first three cars of
the train were lighted nnd that tho
list four were dark. It also appeared
from the testimony that the train wns
going at thirty miles an hour as It
approaching Wreck Lead crossing, anil
that Mr. Pell's automobile wn being

TRIAL LIKELY NEXT WEEK
Albany, June 18. The Court of Ap-
I peals ruled to-day that Harry K. Thaw,
slayer of Stanford White. Is entitled to
a Jury trial. The decision of Supreme
Court Justice Hendrlck Is upheld by
I the decision.
The opinion of the court was written
1 by Justice Frank H. Hlseock. Chief
Justice Wlllard Dartlett took no part
In the case. Judges Seabury, Hogan,
Chase, Hlseock, Cuddeback and Mlllsr
concurred In the opinion, which says:
"It Is plain that Mr. Justice Hen
drlck does not by catling a Jury Intend
at all to evade the burden and responsi
bility of ultimately deciding the Issue
which has been raised, but simply In
tends to tako the verdict of such Jury
, by way of advice and aid In making
such ultimate decision, and, therefore,
, the question Is presented whether a
' Justice before whom such a proceeding
Is pending has the power in his dis
cretion thus to call to his aid a Jury,
It being admitted that the relator In
th habeas corpus proceedings Is -.ot
entitled as a. matter of right to a
i "The command of the statute Is for
a 'summary way' of procedure. This
means that It shall be prompt nnd with
out unreasonable and unnecessary delay.
Having In mind ordinary legal pro
cedure, It doubtless means that there
shnll be no long adjournments, that
' such a proce-dlng shall not be placed on
a calendar where It would not be
reached In some time: that It shall
have precedence over other matters. Hut
of course some discretion must be left
to the court or Judge ns to tho time
1 and mode of hearing even such a pro-
! .'i l.lkrlltmntl of Delay.
I "The question whether the submls
, slon of an Issue of fact to a Jury for
' the aid of the court would result In a
violation of the statute Is one which
might easily be decided by the c'.rcum
' stances of the particular case. If a
Jury could promptly be obtained It
Is not apparent that any substantial
delay would be occasioned by calling
one. If one could not thus be ob
tained It might result In reprehensi
ble and forbidden delay.
"It Is not to be assumed that a Jus
tice would order such a Jury when
such course might lead to a violation of
the statute, and there Is no sugges

of New York In the case before us will
be productive of delay.
"It Is urged that even though the
error of calling a Jury could be cor

Counsel for Wife in Her
The unusual sight of one attorney
striking nnotl.cr while both were ap
pearing before the five Justices of the
Appellate Division of the Supreme Court
threw the court Into confusion for a
time yesterday afternoon and resulted
In the ejection by n court officer of
Kverett P. Ketchum, a lawyer who hns
retired from practice nnd who has an
Income of $10,000 from tho estate of
his father, Alexander P. Ketchum. The
fact that the court took no serious
action In the matter was due to the
belief that because of worry' Ketchum
was not responsible for his act.
The man Ketchum struck was George
W. Whiteside, foimcrly an Assistant
District Attorney, who has been counsel
for Mrs. Ada Hrown Ketchum, wife of
the lawyer. In a suit for separation.
The couple were married December 27
last and quarrelled on their honeymoon
because, na alleged by Mrs. Ketchum,
of Insulting remarks made to her by
her husbind. They parted nt. February
13, and Mrs. Ketchum sued. An order
awarding her $10 a week alimony ani
!30i counsel fie was made by Justlc
Weeks, and nn appeal by Ketchum from
th'.s order was before the Appellate Di
