SOME MORE THAW DOPE
t Albanyq, N. Y., Oct. 29. Attorney
General Thomas Carmody, in de
fending New York's pursuit of Harry
:K. Thaw, says it has been and is a
iUattle to prevent the Thaw millions
from defeating the ends of justice.
Carmody also declared that the in-
dictment against Thaw, though he
;was committed to Matteawan as a
paranoiac, is consistent, as there is
fno proof that Thaw wa's not sane
when he plotted to escape from the
t "It was never claimed that Thaw
.is insane at all times, or that he is
incapable of committing crime," Car

held for his acts committed while in

.committed during lucid periods.
There are any number of instances
iof insane men convicted and punish
ed for crime under our laws upon the
above theory. If a man is sufficiently
lucid successfully to devise his es
cape from confinement, it is apparent
that he knows what he is doing and
Jb -legally responsible for his act" ,

been at work all day in the kitchen
and had accomplished naught but un
tidiness and confusion. My friend
rushed upon the-fellow and thus cas
"Say, kid, I hired you to repair
those pipes, not to vaccinate 'em.
Why, you couldn't patch up a leak in
a lard can or plug a hole in a hunk
of Swiss cheese. What d'yuh mean
crawling under my kitchen sink to
take a shower bath? And, say, I bet
you don't know whether you're nurs
ing a pipe or refitting a tire, or
whether that weappn in your mitt is
a monkey wrench or a nut cracker.
G'wan, you ain't a plumber you're a
