At 10:50 the judge took the bench

I.etl to Much Speculation.
The action of the jury in asking for
particular exhibits and testimony led
to much speculation as to what the
trend of their long discussion had been.
It was generally conceded serious dif
ferences of opinion had developed
among the jurors as to the evidence,
and that a verdict of any sort was still
remote. Examination of the documents
called for will require much time.

New York, April 11. When Harry K.

wiih the grim knowledge that for more
than six hours his fate had been in the
hands ()f the jury, and that the 12 men
bad been unable in that time to agree
upon a v rdict.
Events moved rapidly and thrillingly
in the last day of his trial. For him
and those hoping for his acquittal it
was the most soul trying ordeal of the
12 weeks which the trial has lasted.

occasion of iniortnnce are familiar
He never soared to the llorid heights
of eloquence whereon Mr. Delmas bal

two days. The figures of speech that
he used were few and simple, but V
ery word that he uttered appeared to
carry with it the conviction that it was
poken sincerely, and he held the
crowded court room from beginning to

for a moment.

Thaw himself showed signs of the
train under which he must have been
aboring. He was paler than usual and
the tell tale muscles of bis face twitch
ed spasmodically now and then. He
followed every word that Mr. Jerome
uttered. Now and then he spoke to

When Mr. Jerome waxed most vigor
ous in his sarcastic attack on Mr. Del
mas' picture of Thaw as a modern Sir
Galahad, the defendant lowered his
eyes and gazed at the table in front of
him. Most of the time he fixed his
eyes steadily on the district attorney.
As soon as Mr. Jerome had concluded
a new thrill was sent through the court
room crowd bv the announcement that
Judge Fitzgerald would charge the
jury as soon as the room had been
aired. At 4:1." Justice Fitzgerald be

The charge had evidently been most
carefully prepared and Judge Fitzger
ald read every word of it clearly and
slowly from a typewritten copy. When
he had finished, it was the opinion of
every lawyer in the room, includit;
the Thaw counsel, that the charge had
struck a hard blow to several of the
contentions of the Thaw lawyers.
Justice Fitzgerald hit straight from
the shoulder at the so-called "unwritten
law," though without naming it. He
said that the defense was insanity and
that it was for the jury to decide wheth

Intruder Not Imniio.
He brushed away at a breath the ef
fect of the many efforts to impress on
the jury the blackness of Stanford
White's character, and stated that the
character of the victim had no bearing
upon the issue. "A personal avenger
of a public or a private wrong," In
said, "is not recognized by law, and
under a government such as ours no
oilier rule is a safe one."
He declared that every individual
was entitled to the protection of the
law. both the exalted and the humble,
and the character of the victim could
not tend to show ihat the one who did
the killing was not guilty of homicide
nor could it mitigate such an act.

Justice Fitzgerald also bit hard at n
contfntion of Mr. Delmas by charging
ihat it was not the duty of a prosecu

he said, assumed that every man was
sane until he was shown to lie insane.

dore Roosevelt for democratic nominee
of the national democratic convention
in 1!miS was a sensation sprung here
last night by John Temple Graves, the
Atlanta editor and one of the guests at
ih dinner to William J. Bryan.
Mr. Graves had his speech prepared
but was at first sidetracked by the ex
ecutive committee of the banquet, the
members of which met him at the sta
tion ami told him that such an address
would be highly improper at such d
lirx t.ivt-n Out.
Mr. Graves acquiesced in their decis
ion, so lar as the banquet was concern
ed, but said copies of the speech al
ready had been given to the press and
that he would not recall it. Apiwrent-
ly the action of the executive commit
tee did not meet the approval of all
of those who attended the dinner, for
Mr. Graves was induced to return t
the banquet hall at 11 o'clock and de
liver his speech.
1 Mi!r-M a Statement.
Mr. Graves planned to remain silent
at the banquet after his interview with
the committee, and to leave early in
the evening. In order to make his po
sition clear, however, he sent a letter
to the president of the Bryan Anniver-
rPSTr" rrnn, F. A. Hood.-1irwlch-tte
"1 came to Chattanooga, yielding to
no one in my profound and affectionate
regard for Mr. Bryan and for the dem
ocratic party and its principles. In
the course of my speech I tried to
make that plain in as warm and glow
ing sentences as my heart could fash
ion. I am profoundly convinced that
in this iieriod of tremendous economic
crisis the only man who can carry to
successful conclusion the reforms insti
tuted in behalf of the people is the man
who is already intrenched in the pow
er and prestige of dauntless courage
ami conspicuous success in the execu
llrlil It Manly TIiIdk to Do.
"I have endeavored in my speech to
give my convictions, and these convic
tions are so earnest and sincere that I
cannot change them unless better rea
sons are given than have been present
ed to me up to the present time. My
reason for stating this conviction at a
Bryan banquet, with Mr. Bryan pres
ent, was because I considered it the
manly and democratic thing to do."
Ilrynn ( m1lmenta liravra.
In beginning his address, after Graves
had finished. Bryan complimented
Graves in the highest manner for his
honesty and his boldness, and said if
there was any place in the world
where absolute freedom of speech
should prevail, it ought to be in a dem
ocratic gathering. He added that when
he heard Graves had retired from the
hall because there might be doubts
about the wisdom of what he had to
say, lie -had sent for the Georgian to
return and insisted that his speech be
delivered. Turning directly to the
Graves recommendation, Bryan said:
As at present advised, I shall not
present the name of Theodore Roose
velt to the national democratic conven
tion. Bear in mind, I gay 'as at present
Hold- I.n Kolletle More Suitable.
Bryan contended that If. after mature
consideration and reflection and pre
sentation of arguments in the case, he
shouM consider that his duty lay In
that direction, he would present Roose
velt if it should prove the last act of
his life. He went on to say that if any
republican was to be selected by the
democrats to their national ticket, the
man should be Senator La Follette of
Wisconsin. Bryan then proceeded with
his speech, presenting reasons why, in
his opinion. Roosevelt was not the
proper man for the presidency.
