K. Thaw spent five hours to-day?the
sixth anniversary ot his shooting of,
Standford White?on the witness stand
under fire of examination by William
T. Jerome, who Is opposing Thaw's
fight for release from the Matteawan
asylum. To-day Mr. Jerome reminded
the witness suddenly of the anni?
versary of tho tragedy, and question-;
ed htm sharp! a:i to the elrc.iinstaneos
of the k'iling. Uotii Thaw and his ;
counsel, Clarence J. Bhearn, quickly .
Interposed objections, on the ground,
that Mr. Jerome was showing nnlmus
ami "serving private interests"
Mr. Jerome declared his questioning
was Within the province of a "mental
examination," and he was generally'
u held by Judge Keogh, but was un- i
successful <n his apparent attempts to
mak?, the w tness dlspliy undue agita?
tion. Tne question of Thaw's motive
In killing White did not bother him.
"It was ah account of the cold?
blooded way In which he had done
th'ngs to my wife and other Klrl"."
he declare1!, firmly. lie refused to
answet when Jerome asked if he was
insane during the half-minute he I
was killing White. But ho said later.
"1 think my mental cond'tlon was |
the same na Ceneral Daniel Sickles,
when he shot Key."
"But." Jerome quickly retorted.
'General Siekles did not hide behind a
woman's skirts, as Evelyn testified th
Other day that you had done."
Thaw said that >y a combination
of his own opinion and that of his
alienists, lie had arrived at the con?
clusion that he it now sane.
At another time. Mr. Jerome asked:
"Mr. Thaw, will you describe In de?
tail the killing of Stanford White, by
"I don't think I'm able."
"You described It to Dr. Russell In
1911, did you not?"
"Are you unable to givt? nn account
of the killing?"
"From what does ycir inability
arise? Is your memory Im pa red?"
"Will you state what recollection
you have of tne occurrence from the
time you left the Cafe Martin until
you were taken to the Statlonhouse?"
Tiiaw was extremely unwilling to
give an account of the killing, and
replied again and again that he could
