c The attempt of Harry K Thaw to have himself declared a bankrupt
f Inaugurated yesterday in Pittsburg will be contested by Daniel OReilly
of his counsel in both his trials Mr OReilly is busy today preparing
an application to be presented to the United States Court on Monday
asking that a committee be appointed to take charge of Thaws estate
and person
i In Thaws list of unsecured claims against his estate filed in Pitts
f burg vith the petition in bankruptcy is an item reading Daniel OReilly
5000 Disputed The list of expenditures filed with the petition
t alleges that Thaw paid OReilly 11000 during both trials exclusive of
amounts advanced to OReilly by Hartridge Peabody original attor
neys of record
Thaws statements regarding his 1
j payments to me and his Indebtedness I
re misleading to say the least said
Mr OReilly this afternoon Of the
f ll000lt really was more than that
he paid me I expended a great part
for legitimate expenses Thaw owes
the today J37000 and I Intend to get It
a I shall have a committee appointed to
take charge of his person and estate
and then sue the committee
Has No Legal Right
Thaw has no legal right to go Into
bankruptcy He Is In the eyes of the
lm a lunatic committed to a lunatic
asylum by a Justice of the Supreme
Court of the State of New York As
a lunatic he Is absolutely deprived of
I control of his person and estate
It is surprising to me that Thaws
attorney Mr Morschauser whose
own brother Justice Morschauser de
clared Thaw Insane should lend him
fell to an attempt on the part of a
r lunatic to go into bankruptcy Thaws
endeavor to avoid paying his debts
forces me to apply for the appointment
ef a committee or of committees to
care for Ins person or property so that
I mar begin suit to protect my rights

Last Message
When i freight train drove Into the
Pccahootaa cut of the New York New
Haven 8 Hartford Railroad shortly
after dawn today the engineer spied
the figure of a man suspended to the
bridge that spans One Hundred and
Fortysecond street near the Southern
It looked to the engineer as If the man
were hanging by his hands so without
slowing down he blew a blast on the
whistle Th figure did not move how
ever so the power was hut off and
the locomotive stopped Just as the
smokestack bumped acalnst the sus
pended body
Then it was seen that the body was
suspended by the neck with a rope In
vestigation disclosed that the suicide
was Robert H Miller fortyfive years
old t carpenter out of work Until
two years HSO he boarded with Mrs
Louis Decnuse at Xo W > J East One
Hundred and Fortyninth street He
had boarded with her nineteen years
anti then went to Albany
She heard nothing from him until
venterday when she received a letter
Piling her that by the time she got
It he would be dead The carp iter
said that he vas buying the stamp for
the letter with his lost two rents ftO
dlne I cant itanii thU any longer
Death Is better than living in thue
hard times
When the clothlnc nf the suicide was
arched at the Alexander avenue sta
tion an empty pay envelope was found
across which was written Your ser
vices are no longer required
The man had hanged himself with a
clothes line which he attached to an
ron beam beneath the bridge then
tying the rope about his neck and drop
nlnir off into space Mrj Degous noti
fied the police that she would take

Her Jewels at Her Own
Charles M Stelnert a nephew of Mag
istrate Joseph Stelnert who was ar
rested last night on the complaint of
Mabel Wilson of the Hotel Bayard No

he called upon her and took away
H860 worth of her jewelry and 174 In I
money was honorably discharged when
arraigned In the West Side Court to
day before Magistrate Corrlcan
It was shown that the young man
wu the victim of a strange blunder
lie Is employed as omce manager by
the Ely J RIeser Manufacturing Com
pany of Twentyeighth street and
First avenue Yesterday Miss Wilson
called him up on the phone and asked
It he would como and take charge of
her jewelry as she was afraid some
one would get It away from her
Steinert complied with the request and
found the young woman In an ex
tremely nervous and shaky condition I
He took the Jewelry from her and
carried It to his office She evidently I
forgot all about the transaction for i
three hour later she telephoned to the
West Fortyseventh street station and I
charged that she had been robbed
Detectives Heine and Hegene were
sent to the hotel and advised MUs Wil
son to send for Stelnert Ohe tele
phoned to him and he came Immedi
ately to the hotel with the jewelry He
turned It over to the manager nf tho
hotl saying that In Mist WUsjns ner
vous condition she better not have < c
Then while he wu talking to the I
manager the two detectives rushed up
to him and Dotectlve Hems struck him
In the face and tailed him a dirty I
thief Miss Wilson was In court to
day still In f o nervous a condition that I
aba could not articulate clearly or sign I
I complaint
Max Stftlnert father of the youngl
mnn said he would prefer charges of
brutality against Detective Heine to
