HARRY THAW AGAIN .
On Trial in New York for Conspiracy
to Escape from Asytnin.
New York, March 8.-In the room
where he twice faced a jury for the
murder of Stanford White, Harry K.
Thaw today went on trial for conspir
Ing to escape from the State Hospital
for the Criminal Iusane at Alatteawan.
With him as co-defendants were five
muen, who, the State charges, were par
ties to the alleged conspiracy. The en
thre (lay was required to complete the
jury. Taking of testimony will begin
I From the outset it was evident that
the trial would be another fight for
Thaw's freedom. The defendant's at
torneys plainly intimated that, with
- tlh permission of the Court, they would
offer evidence designed to prove the
client was sane when he escaped fror
the asylum. Such being the case, they
1 said, In examining talesmen, the de
s fondant was being detained illegallI
I at the time of his flight.
. They asked prospective juror
c against a man of sound mind who use(
t whether they would be prejudiceu
against a inal1 of sound mind who usc<
. any means at his command to escap
a from a hospital for the insane.
Q These statemients were ampified lat
a er .by John B. Stanchileld, Thaw's chic
counsel, who said that should the jir:
find his client not guilty he limmedi
ately would sue out a writ of habea
corpus on the ground that "his deten
n tion was illegal, because the jur;
C would have established his sanity."
I- "The State's contention, as outline
a while an assistant district attorne
was questioning talesmen, is thr
h1 Thaw, also insane at the time of hi
.c escape, nevel'theless was competent t
enter into a conspiracy, and that I
I, should be punished accordingly.
it Deputy Attorney General Kenned:
'C in charge of the prosecution, said the
a if Thaw were found guilty he woul
ft be returned immediately to Matter

'a said, would be William Penny, clerk <

THAT TIRED FEELING,
Do You Continual-ly Feel Sluggish,
If you do, it is probably caused by
your liver. When the liver fails to
perform its functions properly, the
system -becomes clogged with Poison
ous matter, that weighs you down
mentally and physically.
The liver gets out of order very eas
11y, and if neglected, chronic trouble
usually results. Don't delay if you
feel badly. You knowingly lay your
self open to life long pain, when you
allow yourself to continue *in a run
down condition. Cure yourself quick
ly ad harmlessly with the natural veg
etable remedy, Liv-Ver-Lax. It has
all the effectiveness, but not the effect, V
Genuine Liv-Ver-Lax bears the like
