badly scared that he cried, prayed and
talked, but nobody could understand a
word. Two Greek laborers were brought
to see If they could understand him. but
could not. so the poor fellow was left
alone In the office Not appearing vicious,
he was not locked up. In the afternoon

WAS JURY THAT TRIED
District Attorney Jerome yill
Investigate Reports That
Have Come to Him.
XEW YORK, April 18. It. was an
nounced today that the District Attor
cy had begun thc investigation of a
report, that one of tho jurors in the re
cent trial df Ilarrv K. Thaw had been
"approached" by" a policeman before
tho trial closed. Henry B. Brearly, one
of tho jurors, had an interview with
District Attorney Jerome, late today.
Later it was announced that several
olht'rs of tho Thaw jurors would bo
asked to come to thc District Attor
ney's office tomorrow and tell of any
thing the knew of tho report in ques
tion. It was reported that a policeman
talked with a juror on one of the walks
the jur took from the Criminal Courts
'building to the Broadway Ceutral hotel.
It. became definitely known today
that I lie question of counsel for Harry
Thaw has not been permanently set
tled. The publication of a letter sent
by Thaw to Hn rtridgo & Pea body yes
terday, in which he informed that firm
thai they would continue as counsel of
record, was generally accepted as dis
posing of that phase of the case for the
present at least.
No Senior Counsel.
Today, however. Clifford W. Hart
ridge gave out. a statement in which he
said tho supposition that he is senior
counsel was absolutely unwarranted. He
said that at tho present time there is
no senior counsel in thp Thaw case.
This statement was given out at
Thaw's request, it is said, after a heated
interview in the Tombs between the
prisoner, Mr. Peabody aud Daniel
Dr. 'Smith Ely Jelliffe, one of the
alienists; who testified for the defense in
the recent trial of Harry K. Thaw, spent
two hours with Thaw in his cell in the
Tombs last night. A. R. Poabodv of
Thaw's counsel was present during the
interview, but neither he nor Dr. .Tel
liffe would say anything today. Thaw
hnd remained in bed vesterda morn
ing until 0 o'clock and only chose to
see his counsel when Warden Flynu
suggested to him that if he were ill' he
might, go to the hospital ward. U was
said at the prison thai Mr. Tenbodv
had Dr. Jelliffe lo attend Thaw because
Dr. McGuire, the regular Tombs physi
cian, is suffering from a slight attack
