THAW MUST STAY IN ASYLUM
Slayer of Stanford White is Denied LibertyDecision
of Supreme Court.
Ponghkecpsie. \T. Y., May 25.?
"In view of the existing mental condition
of Harry K. Thaw, the safety
of the public is better insured bv
his remaining in custody and under
observation until he has recovered,
or until such time as it shall be
reasonably certain that there is no
danger of a recurring attack of the
delusion or whatever it may be."
1 his is the decision readied by
Justice Morschauser of the State
supreme court in a decision handed
down today in the matter of Thaw's
application for release from Mat'
teawan asylum for the criminal insane
on a writ of habeas corpus.
Thaw who has been in jail here
since the insanity hearing was begun
was quickly appraised by his
counsel of the adverse nature of the
decision and lias accepted apparently
with resignation the decree that
he is still insane and that the interest
of the public will be best served by
denying him liberty.
I 'ending the signing of the papers
of recommitment which probably
will not be done before a week from
next Saturday Thaw will occupy
Sheriff C hauler's suite in the county
building here. In the meantime
an eflort will be made by Thaw's attorneys
to induce District Attorney
Jerome to consent to the commitment
of the prisoner to one of the
Stale hospitals other than Matteawan.
It is said that in event of Mr.
Jerome giving his consent to such
a changc no appeal will be taken
from Justice Morchauscrs decision.
I'.veil it an appeal were taken it
could not be argued before fall.

"Scattering reports from 35 counties
