there even being: spasmodic Jerking
of the limbs; that he has known the
defendant’s maternal uncle, Henry W.
Copley, to be of unsound mind for the
, last six years, and that he was a suf
ferer from Imbecility; that his mind
was In a condition where he had not
concentration enough to “stick to any
thing," and that be was not Incar
; cerated, but went about the commun
ity, supported financially by Mrs,
Thaw, Br. Asked If be knew mem
bers of the Rosa family, l>r. Deemar
replied that he did, but that those
whom he knew were of unusually
strong mind. On the doctor's being
asked as to the mental condition of
John Ross, son of Margaret Copley
Ross, a sister of the defendant's moth
er, Jerome objected and was sustain
ed. This ended the direct examina
tion and was somewhat of a setback
to the defense.
The second witness was Dr. William
W. 6. Butler, a physician from Roa
noke, Va. He said that he was con
nected with an aaylum In his time
In 1883, when he became acquainted
with Horace J. Thaw. He met him at
the asylum.
The witness testified that he was
a physician at the hospital and that
Horace Thaw was committed to that
Institution. Jerome objected, but the
witness answered. Objection upheld
and answer stricken from the record.
Littleton produced the original com
mitment papers and showed them to
Dr. Butler. The witness was then
shown the records of the hospital,
identifying those referring to Horace
Thaw's case. They were offered In
evidence by the defense, but were ex
cluded upon Jerome's objection.
Jerome’s objection to the witness’ an
swering with regard to hla opinion of
Horace Thaw’s mental condition also
was sustained, when It was adduced
that Dr. Butlar observed the patient
as a regular practicing physician.
Expseted Proof Not Sustained.
The expected proof of the insanity
among Thaw's relatives had not been
allowed up to this point.
Dr. L. B. Poster, of Norfolk, Va.,
who has been a practicing physician
for 86 years and who has been for a
number of years director of the Past
ern state hospital for the Insane at
Williamsburg, Va., was the next wit
ness called.
He identified the official register of
the state hospital and testified to the
authenticity of the record.
Littleton asked the witness whether
the hospital records showed that Wm.
8. Thaw, a first cousin of the defend
ant’s mother, ever was admited there,
but Jerome’s objection was sustained
and Littleton noted his exception.
Jerome waived cross-examination of
the witness, who retired.
Dr. Deemar, on being recalled, said
in reply to questions by Littleton, that
he was the family physician of John
Ross, before he was committed to
Staunton asylum and that he was of
unsound mind, being maniacal. This
ended the direct-examination of the
witness. It was a partial victory for
Jerome then took up the cross-ex
amination. again bringing out that
John Ross was a cousin of the de
fendant. He also said he knew noth
ing about , the antecedents, environ
ment and manner of living of Henry
Copley, before he came to the town
where the witness resided.
Thaw's Teacher Called.
Littleton then called for a Dr.
Chase, but he was not In court. The
defense then called Charles H. Koeh
ler, manager of a business college at
Vannona, Minn.
He was oue of Thaw’s early teach

Jerome then went Into the private

feet that Prof. Koehler Is married and
for years haa been running a bustneee
college In Minnesota.
Jerome having Antehed hla oroas-ex

Miss Olga Netheisole opened her
Detroit engagement Monday evening
with two short plays entitled respec
tively, “The Submarine** and “The
Awakening.” Both are from the
"The Submarine,” which Is pre
sented first, is a satirical tragedy. In
which fire men go to their deaths in
s submarine boaL The most grue
some scene Is depicted of men, In the
arms of death, screaming, crying,
blaspheming. Then follows a scene on
a dock, when a deputation of digni
taries come* down from Paris to Day
formal homage to the miserable dead.
The play Is ghastly and would seem
to hare no excuse for being.
The other half of the bill, “The
Awakening,” 1* written by Paul Her
vieu, a distinguished Frenchman, and
shows the supremacy of mother love
over all other affections. Miss Netbor
eole In the character of Thereto de
Megee, shows varied and profound
emotions. She reached the hetgbt of
tragic acting in the scene where wo
manly honor and passionate solicitude
for the life of the man with whom her
affections are Involved. Is depicted.
Miss Nelhersole has surrounded her
self withs company of competent pity
ers. “Sapho” is announced for Tues
day evening,.

such was th« plea that Martin W. Lit
tleton made yesterday for the defense
of Harry K. Thaw fur the slaying of
Stanford White.
Thaw, hollow-eyed, gaunt. the very
picture of misery and despair, listened
to the words In which his counsel told
of the unhappy men and women
of his family who had worn away the
lona years of their lives and died In
madhouses, with an anguish he could
not conceal. His thin shoulders bent
forward until his bark was bowed like
an old man’s. His transparent hamls
went up to vainly try to hide the
twitching of his face. His head sunk
forward on his breast as If he was al
most stupefied with horror at the lift
ing at last of the curtain that he has
once risked hts life to keep down.
Further back In the court room —
faithful and loyal to the last gasp—
sat Thaw's sister, Mrs. Carnegie, and
his brother, Joslah, mutely bearing
with him the martyrdom of the ordeal,
while the doors of the Thaw secret
closet were torn open and the family
skeleton dragged ruthlessly forth.
What they suffered was plainly to bo
read in their countenances.
Madaeae from Tslatetf Blood.
The entering of the plea of Insanity
for Harry Thaw, not the emotional in
sanity of the moment, but Insanity
that la the direct result of tainted
blood and that' manifested Itself In ab
normalities. even In Infancy, ie deeply
significant. It means the breaking
down of the Thaw pride that came so
near to sending the prisoner to the
electric chair. It means the taking of
the case out of the hands of Harry
Thnw himself.
Mr. Garvan's statement of the case
was as passionless and calm as Justice
Itself, and his appeal In this case was
not to the emotions of the Jury, but to
their hard common-sense and fairness
to say whether or not Harry Thaw Is
guilty under the law that says that the
only palliation of crime la for the per
fetrator to be In such a mental condl
lon that he Is Incapable of determin
ing the nature and quality of his act.
Resort Keeper Summoned.
With one case pending In the re
corder’s court, Mrs. Annie Smith, of,
Solvay-ave., Eighteenth ward, must
face another charge In police court of
maintaining a resort. Justice Jeffries
issued a warrant for her Tuesday
morning on the complaint of William
A. Rogers, who says his 17-year-old
son has frequented the place and has
become ill as a result. Affidavits of
a most revolting character, relating to
the character of the place, have been
shown Justice Jeffries, who Is also In
formed that while Annie Hmlth Is al
lowed to run without molestation on
the part of the police, the officer*
promptly Interfered when one Julian
Toth, a woman almost as well known
In the west end as Annie Smith, at
tempted to open a resort.
Master Bakers Persistent.
Havltu: failed to stop the passage
of the amended bread ordinance by the
council and Its signing by the mayor,
the roaster bakers of the east aide are
preparing to present a petition to the
council for anew hearing and amend*
ments to the ordinance as It now
stands. Mayor Thompson has assured
them that the matter Is out of his
hands, being signed already and that
he cannot advise them further than to
ask for a change In the law.
A bill that la especially attractive
to the younger element was presented
Monday In the Temple theater. There
are three acts that provide no end
of entertainment for the youngsters,
although their elders can enjoy them,
too. They are “Polly Pickle’s Pets
In Petland/' with 14 girls and boys
and Daisy Leon at the head. “The
Awakening of Toys,” by DeWltt,
Burns and Torrance, which appeals to
all with its fairy tale quality, and
“Kmlr,” the musical horse, that plays
a horn, much to the delight of {he
youngsters. W. C. Fields, the humor’
Ist and Juggler; Dora Ronca, “gypsy
violinist.” Smith and Campbell, in
good-natured nonsense; Kiggoletto
Bros., hand balancers, and Herbert
and Willing are other attractiona. ~
James O'Neill and hit company de
serve special commendation for the
conscientious work and good staging
of “Julius Caesar.” which was pre
sented In the Lyceum theater Monday
evening. The house was large and
appreciated the effort* of the players,
and reception being most enthusiastic.
Mr. O’Neill portrayed Marc Antony,
leaving the more generally starred
characters of Brutus and Cassius to
Charles D. Hsrman snd Norman Haok
ett, respectively. The play la to he
repeated Wednesday night and at the
Saturday matinee. .

Politicians wars given a serve**
shako-up by the sudden anaonnoß*
ment of Truman H. Newberry's with
drawal Monday. A great deal of In
side organisation work bad bean dona
so that his followers were confident
of winning. While they bad been
trying to get a primary, they had
worked to line up delegates for a con
vention If the other side Insisted on
one. and had aaeared themselves of n
fair chance of getting a majority of
, Many of the Stair workers were
sorer than the Newberry man. ▲ man
who can get the honor of being dele*
gate-at-large without opposition can
not be expected to "loosen up" for his
following, and so the withdrawal of
one side made It a certainty that
there would be no battle of the ban*
i els.
Aldermen and other candidates who
had been drawn Into the fight were
greatly relieved, for all had found
their friends divided and they could
only figure it that they lost whichever
side won.
"The Newberry men did not even
have to get a majority of the dele
gates to control the convention,** as
sorted one man who haa been on the
fence.’’ It was very probable that
they would get the temporary chair
man, name the apportionment commit
tee, run In their list of delegates and
win the contest. If there was one* be
fore the state convention."
The way In which Delegate Louis
Tossy has acquitted himself la the
constitutional convention has led to
the starting of a boom In his behalf
for state senator from the second dis
trict. His non-partisan course la the
city council has won him admirers
in both parties, and these believe that
If he Is willing to give up his seat in
council for one In the state senate he
can hold the latter as long aa he
likes. The salary may be made the
same if the salary proposal of the
new constitution goes through.
The Board of Commerce Is consid
ering Inviting Senator Philander O.
Knox, of Pennsylvania, to visit De
troit on Feb. 13. the same day that
Secretary Taft wUI be here. Con
gressman Theodore Burton, of Ohio,
may also com* down from Grand
Rapids that day.
William H. Green, Jr. is making a
very quiet, but nevertheless effective
campaign throughout the county. He
has won a larg* following of friends
through years of asrvloe in the sher
iff’s and auditors* offices.
Louis C. Wurxer has been men
tioned ass possible delegate or alter
cate to the national Republican con
Csss R. Benton, county poor com
missioner. has given up all Idea of
running for register of deeds this
year. * , '
John E. Bird, attorney general, re
fuses to make a rush for the governor
ship. It Is said that Mr. Bird's ambi
tions tend rather to the enprease
bench. There will In all probability
be a vacancy there through the retire
ment of Justice Grant next year. With
in another year there may be a va
cancy on the federal bench- Either of
thee* would be better in a financial
way that the governorship.
