I I Berates Counsel for Not Fighting His
Commitment to Matteawan by
Justice Dowling After Acquit 1
tal by Jury
A PROPER VERDICT IS
MR JEROMES OPINION
Prisoner Receives Announcement With a Sigh 1
of Relief His Wife With Great Emo J
tion Roosevelts Relative
I Fined for Contempt f
The jury in the case of Harry K Thaw found him not guilty of the
murder of Stanford Whitetoday on the ground that he was insane when
the crime was committed and within four hours
Thaw
was on a train
bound for the Asylum for the Criminal Insane at Matteawan
I He was committed to the asylum by order of Justice Dowling
which declared him a dangerous lunatic
Thaws lawyers will go before a Justice of the Supreme Court on
Monday and ask for his release on the ground that Justice Dowlings
I commitment was unconstitutional If this move is unsuccessful they j
will apply for writ of habeas
a corpus and cause the appointment of a
commission to examine Thaw and report upon his mental condition j
THAW FOR IMMEDIATE ACTION J
Thaw protested violently against going to Matteawan He declared 1
with all the force of his violent
nature that his lawyers ought to secure
his release at once Finally Lawyer Peabody took him in hand in the
Sheriffs office in the Criminal Courts Building and persuaded him that I
he would have to go to the asylum I
Thaw finally agreed to depart peaceably and left the Grand Central
Station on the 439 train
GRINS AS HE HEARS VERDICT
Harry Thaw took the verdict with a grin of positive satisfaction
His wife heretofore the coolest figure in the great murder case showed
far more emotion than did her husband or her husbands halfbrother
Josiah Thaw the only one of his blood kin who heard the verdict in
person
After ordering the prisoner to be taken to Matteawan on the next
train the Justice allowed Thaws counsel grace of two hours m which to
confer with their client and decide whether or not they would fight by
habeas corpus the prder commitment to the asylum for the criminal
insane
JEROME AND LITTLETON AGREE
Mr Littleton said It was a just and legal verdict and what I ex
pected 5
Jerome threw his arms about Littletons shoulder and said
I am glad it turned out the way it did old man It was a proper
verdict
Theodore Roosevelt Pell the noted tennis player a relative of Presi
dent Roosevelt was the only person in the courtroom to applaud the
verdict Justice Dowling immediately ordered his arrest and fined him
325 for contemol of court
Justice Dowllng who haul given Thaw
mid his lawyers two hours to confer
convened court nt 3f A oclock and was
Informed by Mr Littleton that Thaw
was ready to go to the asylum without
any protest The Court then ordered
Dipuly Sheriff Hell to take the pris
oner to the train forthwith
Ready to Go
Hell went to the Shnrlffs ofllce where
Thaw was waiting nnd told him they
would have to start at once Thaw
buttoned up his ul ter and said
