NEW YORK, Sept. 14 ?New coun?
sel lu the Thaw ease apnoared today
when John H. Iselin. former Assist?
ant District Attorney, called at the
Tombs registered as assocloVr
counsel for Harry K. Thaw, tho mur?
derer of Stanford White. Mr. Iselin
was closeted with Thaw for an hour.
Mr. Iselin Is a partner of Howard
S. Onus, who until the first of this
year was chief of staff In Mr. Jerome's
office. This firm represents the dis?
trict attorney in the position ho pre?
sented for tho removal of Justice

represented Mr. Jerome in civil suits.

Employment of n firm standing so

Stanford White by Harry Thaw, was

THE IVORY MARKET.
Tonka !>j Ilir Acre Kxltlhllcri at tbs
HI(T London Docks.
One of the sights of London Is tho
great Ivory Uoor at tho London docks,
where previous to and during the pe?
riodical sales Ivory may be seen liter?
ally by the acre, for the tURks are laid
out in lots on the Hour of ono of tho
?reat warehouses for Inspection by In?
tending purchasers. For weeks previ?
ous to the actual sale tlto special staff
of the Ivory department lias been busy
prepnrlng the various consignments
and arranging them according to tho
sizes and .quality and classing them
'nto the various grades, each of which
has some particular uso for which It Is
There lc practically no wusto In tho
manufacturing of articles from Ivory.
The smallest chip Is not thrown away,
but carefully preserved to be utilized
for some purpose. Even the shavings
from the turning down of a billiard
ball have a market value for uso In In?
laid work. Consequently the lots In or.
ivory snlo by no means consist of
tusks and sections of tusks alone, but
Include the residue from many previous
wiles. Buyers purchase the particular
class that they require for their own
individual industry and subsequently
return what In most other materials
would be waste to lie resold to manu?
facturers of a different class of goods.
Though there Is "no waste," oddly
i enough tho most Iniportnnt considera?
tion, from a buyer's point of view, is
"how much wnstc" will a certain lot
produce In the course of transformini
it Into his own particular line. Thus
, a lot that would be dear to one would
' be a gift to another, nnd vlco versa.
! The most valunblo class of Ivory Is
I that suitable for making billiard balls.
To conform to the requirements the
tusk must be perfectly sound nnd
solid, without the slightest suspicion
of a cruck or Haw, and, moreover, they
must measure only a trlllo more than
tho regulation size billiard ball or
they will cut to waste, from the manu?
facturers' point of view. On the arriv?
al of n consignment of uuworked ele?
phant Ivory from abroad the Brat prep
i ration for tho sale floor consists of a
thorough cleaning of tho Interior or
tollow pnrt of the tusk. This is done
by means of wads attached to long
slicks. The exact length of the hollow
Is thereby revealed, and In addition
cracks, and flaws that cannot bo ob?
served on the exterior are nt times dis?
closed. Soundness is the one thing
tbnt sways every elnss of buyer; flaw*
mean waste; waste means resale at *
