THAW IS DEOLARED INSANE.
k Slayer of White Must Go Back to
Mattewan.-Thaw's Mother At
W.ite Plains, N. Y., August 12.
Harry K. Thaw's latest attempt to
Main his liberty met with complete
and dirheartening defeat today, when
Supreme Court Justice Isaac N Mills
dismissed the writ of habeas corpus
and declar'ed that "the release of.
the petitioner, would be dangerous to
the oublic peace and safety." The
signing of an order sending Thaw
back to Mattewan is all that remains
to complete the failure of this lat
est appeal to the courts.
There is no crumb of comfort for
Thaw in the 7,000 word opinion
handed down by Justice Mills to-day.
All the contentions of District At
torney Jerome are supported and it
is declared that Thaw is still insane,
and still as much a paranoiac as on
the day he shot Stanford White.
Thaw, waiting in the White Plains
jail, at the rear of the court house,
where the decision was filed, received
the news with outward calmness. The
members of his family and his attor
nev seemed stunned by the thorough
ness of their defeat. Thaw declined
to give out any extended statement,
contenting himself with the asser
tion that his next efforts will be cen
tered upon the Court of Appeals,
through which he expects to secure'
a hearing before a jury' in his effort
to have his commitment to Mattewan
The case before the Court of Ap
peals. is one which has been under
consieration for some time.
Justice Mills, in his opinion to-day
reaches three formal conclusions:
hat Thaw was insane when he killed
White; that he has not yet recovered;
and that public peace and safety
woud be endangered by setting him
at large. He upholds District Attor
nev Jerome's contentions that Thaw
still cherishes delusions regarding the
practices of Stanford White and his
associates. He characterizes Evelyn
Thaw 's tale of the Madison Square
tower room and similar stories about
White told at the sanity hearing, as
"wild and grossly improbable, ev1
dentlv to any normal mind grossly
Thaw's Pervert Practices. I
He asserts his belief in the testi
mor of Susan Merrill re.garding
Thaw 's allezed pervert practices,
and points out the contrast between
SThaw 's chivalrous attitude as a pro
teetr of young American woman
hood arnd hi privte life.

ENGINEER DIED A HERO.
Suffering Agony, He Told Rescuers
to Attend Others.

details of the bravery of Engineer
Samuel Bush, of Knoxville, who died
to-day as a result of his majurie..
Bush was slowly and painfully work

engine. sialded and frightfully
bruised, when the few passengers who
retained their senses, dug into the,
mass of twisted and burning iron to
meet him. He was lifted out upon
the ground and a hurried call for phy
sicians resulted in the discovery that!
there was not a doctor on the train.
As the passengers began a hunt for
whiskey to stimulate him and were
breaking open suit cases in their
searh, Bush asked for a last look
at his old engine, as hopeless a wreck
as was its engineer. When they
came to him with the liquor, 'he beg
ged them to look after the comfort
of the passengers. Told that no pas
sengers had been injured, he said:
" That's good. But before I take
this whiskey, I want you men to
smell my breath and testify, if need
be, that I had not been driuking when
Although suffering horrible agonies,

afford to have anything against that.'

his last run with his record spotless,
