Prepared Way for Present Situation
JT by Raising $80,000 Fund.
The evacuation of Crete by the troops of England.
-France, Russia r.nd Italy and the raising of the
•Greek flag over th« fortress of Canea. the capital
Of the island, has created a situation In which
Cretans and Greeks in this city are much inter
red. la fact, they regard the present political
■situation as extremely critical because of the prob
abllitv that Turkey will assert her nominal sover
eignty over Crete, which may cause a conflict with
the island's inhabitants, who show a decided pref
erence for Greece. Demetrius N. Botassi. Greek
Consul General, said yesterday:
"Crete Is lost forever to the Turkish Empire, and
at the right time It -will form an Integral part of the
Grecian Kingdom."
Her have the Cretans in this city and throughout
the United States been indifferent to the interests of
their native Island or unprepared for the present
.developments. From one of their number it was
learned yesterday that they anticipated just what
lias now happened, and to prepare their compatriots
. for any emergency organized secret committees In
JCew.Vork and other cities, which have collected a
fund of $30,000. which was forwarded recently to
: "We didn't buy any arms In this country." he
aid; "there are plenty to be had In Crete. We Just
tiurntehed the emergency fund. There are not many
Cretans in this city; not more than two' hundred,
sind in the entire United States there are perhaps
c.two thousand. Our people do not emigrate very
"^lnuch. They stay at home. And a large part of my
"^countrymen here are laborers or miners. But they
Mare patriotic and have given moFt freely from their
-ttneagre earnings to the patriotic fund. If neces
■•*6ary I dare say we can obtain as much more. It
-lias not taken us long to get the J30.00\ which we
4Jiope our brothers at home will use to the best ad
i The Cretans have been restless since 1987. They
wanted a union with Greece, About that time
• } Prince George, second son of King George of
Greece, who had governed Crete as High Commis
sioner under the appointment of the four European
lowers that took Crete from Turkey in IS3S. was
•{recalled to Greece. His administration of affairs
*w*s regarded as successful.
T Consul General Botassl said yesterday that the
declaration by the Bulgarians of their independence
""'and the coup d'etat of Austria In Bosnia and Herze-
influenced the Cretans largely in doing
for themselves. Taking up the story of
'the situation in Crete after the "Sailor Prince" left
Tthere. Mr. Botassi raid: !
T "The power" conferred and decided to leave to
K!ng George the choice of Prince George's succes
jsor as High Commissioner of Crete. He ap-
Ijolnted Alexander Zaimis, formerly Prime Minister
l:ofl :of Greece. He was a man of great talents and po
jlitlcal capacity. Under Zaimis the island progressed
'wonderfully. Then last October the Bulgarians ae
:Ctded on their independence, and made Prince
'Ferdinand Czar of Bulgaria. Austria effected her
<">up d'etat in Bosnia and Herzegovina, two essen
tially Turkish provinces, but which by the treaty
•fof Berlin of IS7S were placed, under the government
*of Austria. This movement upset Turkey and made
-» complete change in the two provinces.
C "Th* Cretans peeing a good opportunity for declar-
Ong their independence from Turkey, voted in favor
ejef annexation to Greece. They at once formed a
■visional government, under the presidency of A.
jßeniselos. an tmlnont Cretan statesman, who be
pjaa governing the Island In the name of the King
:cf Greece. All official documents read In the
'^laiae -of George I. King of Hellenes. The four
protective powers tacitly acknowledged the new
state c* things. They conferred, and in view of the
great capacity for self-government shown by the
Cretans, their ability to maintain order and their
success In conciliating the native Mussulman ele
.lT.ert. they announced that on July "T. 1909. they
~irould completely evacuate Crete and withdrew
!their troops.
I "This promise has been faithfully executed to
" - the letter. It remains to be s^en how the powers?
*"w:il take the raising of th* Gr»ck flag all over
-'Crete. But so Jar as the Cretans are concerned
(" They are perfectly satisfied as tilings stand to-day. ,
' "The reajon Is obvious. There are no Turkish troops ;
•In the Island : the polle-? is composed of native
Cretans, commissioned V«y officers of the Greek
«rmr; the courts of Justice are working smoothly.
the native Mussulmans seem to be satisfied and we
are satisfied and not di-riof-d to push things any
further for the present. It is true that the Young
Turks in Constantinople 6t!U aei^rt a shadowy
claim over Crete, and make all sorts of threats in
rase the Island Is formally annexed to Greece.
But we don't notice that clamor, feeling positive
■that Crete is. lost forever to the Turkish Kmpir
•«nd that at the right line Crete will form an in
tegral part of Ok Orocian kingdom.""

was !n doubt as to its legal standing under the in
surance laws of the state.
There is a section of the Insurance laws which
provides that there shall be only such money in
vested in lands ?nd buildincs as shall be requisite
for the proper accommodation and transaction of

confidential. and Thaw mid he did not wish !
to waive his right la the matter Holding out j
the letter, Mr. Jerome asked:
"Did you write that to your wife?"
"I .lid. yea."
"Draw that lewd picture on It?"
A wrangle between the lawyers followed,
while. Thaw looked appealing^ from Mr Mor
■■-h.uis.r to Justice Mills and back ntrtln. Mr.
Jerome contended the letter was admissible, j
because it had been obtained through a third
party. Justice. Milts was Inclined to hold with
Mr. Jerome but granted Mr. Morschauser's re
cjuest for time to look up authorities.
Mr. Olney here took the stand. When Thaw i
returned to the chair Mr. Jerome resumed the
Q.— How long have you bean la Matteawan? A.—
Something like eleven months.
Q. Segregated with any particular group? A.—
No. with all the lunatic*, about fifty-seven, except
at night.
Q— Did they talk much? A.— Intermittently.
They are not like other people.
y.— You have always h>cn of sound mind? A.—
8o I've t>'-flt told.
Q — Were you ever crazy? A.— Not legally.
Q.— This isn't a murder trial. A.— Weli. medically.
I am — always have been.
Here Mr. Jerome made his first attempt to find
out why Thaw objected to further examinations
by alienists. ' •
Q.— Then, don't you think an examination by «tv
alienist would do you good? By a fresh man. I
mean? A.— lf It was competent, yes. But not for
five minutes. I've had plenty of my own.
h« added Q.— Why would not talk 'to Dr. Baker at
Matteawan? A-I always talked with him.
Thaw denied that he. had refused to submit
to examination and said that both Dr. Lamb
and Dr. Baker had examined him and declared
him sane. "They found no trace of paranoia,"
he added coolly.
Despite the objections of his counsel. Thaw
had to tell whether he sail In court that he
thought Dr. Allan McLane Hamilton vas crazy.
Thaw admitted he would not answer the doc
tor's questions; he didn't like his looks.
"Why?" asked Mr. Jerome.
" 'I do not like thee, Dr. Fell, the reason why
I cannot tell.'" quoted Thaw, and Mr. Jerome
opened his eyes. •
Then Mr Jerome grot down to Thaw's opinions
of his own sanity.
Q. — Were you ever crazy, a* Dr. Hamilton said
In court? A -Possibly for hplf a minute when I
saw Mr. White on the roof of Madison Square
* Q. — Were you crazy then? A. — did not say I
Q. — You shot him down In cold blood? A. — No; I
was told he was armed. He glared at me. As I
told you. I don't recollect that ha!f minute.
Why did you 'kill White? A.— l don't know.
q- You don't know? A— Well, It was because
of things he bad done to my wife.
Q.— You were Jealous? A.— l could not say I was
Jealous. It was not jealousy.
Q.— Ever call White a red dragon or a gorilla?
A.— No.
Q.— Did you have a feeling of hitter enmity
toward White? A.— Well, no; not till my wife told
me lit it
<}. Did it Influence you in killing White? A.—
Yes, In this way. He was coldblooded. He was
not carried away by her. That was a poor excuse.
It is trie. but It would have been something.
Q— Were you crazy when you killed him? A.—
Legally. Under the statute, yes.
Q.— Do you think you were Justified in killing:
Thaw moved slightly In his chair and then
said In a clear voice? "There is no such thing
as justification for killing' unybody."
Q.-Whnt do you mean l.y that? Do you mean
that you feel remorse over your act? A. -I regret
It. yes.
Q.-Do you think you did a wicked thing In kill
ing White?
Thaw replied after pome hesitation In the affir
mative, but he looked as if he would have Jlked
to be spared the necessity of answering that
Reverting aßam t<> the VOleas«s4 yming; girls
which the Tenderloin policeman said Thaw had
complained of the night of the murder while he
was in a ceil, Mr. Jerome said:
•You were m that cell charged with murder.
You knew you had Just snuffed out a human life.
You had shot White and you knew It."
Thaw broke In and said:
'I did not know that he was dead."
In explanation .if the doorman's testimony.
Thaw said he had got the matter Mlightly mixed
up. During the night he heard cries from the
cells. One of the voices, he thought, was Uxat of
B young girl. It didn't sound like that of a
Tenderloin character, and ho asked the doorman
to see what could he done to have her released.
From the Tenderloin station Mr. J.rome shift
ed the subject of his Inquiry to Harvard, jr. at
least, to Thaw's sudden departure from that in
stitution. Thaw declared he had been Invited to
leave the university with others who were found
mailing practical experiments in an American
subject outside the regular curriculum. Thaw
at first said the subject was poker, but Mr.
Jerome suggested that Thaw and his companions
were investigating degenerate practices.
Ttfaw denied that he ever had rooms at the
apartment of Susan Merrill. He had met her. hi
said, in a house in West 46th street: He never
used before the name of "Reid.** h<- declared, ex
cept on three or four occasions when he had
telephoned. He had laird; Thaw said, that she
had been subpoenaed to tell lies about him.
Mr. Jerome wanted to know if he had talked
with his wife about It. but Mr. Morschauser
objected, and Thaw said he would abide by any
objections his counsel might see fit to offer.
Then there were Inquiries by Jerome about
various members of the Thaw family, officers
of the Children's Society and others. One of
these was a- woman with a French name who
had a chalet at Alx-les-Bain<» Thaw laughed
when be heard the name, and asked If she
weren't the woman who hnd been mentioned in
a newspaper article. Thaw happened to be
passing the chalet one day. he said, and knocked
over a flower pot. When Hamilton's name was
mentioned Thaw smiled and caused a laugh by
asking Mr. Jerome. "What did Hamilton say
about her?"
A recess was ordered then, and Thaw de
scended to receive the congratulations of his
counsel, his family and his friends on his gr>,vl
Mr Jerome's first question at the opening of
the afternoon session was:
"An ><>v "f the opinion that you are perfectly
S"und iv>\\ ""
Thaws prompt answer was:
"That is based on other people's opinions."
"You have no other opinion of your own?" the
Inquisitor persisted
But Thaw calmly answered:
"I never thought about It."
Mr. Jerome then took up a copy of "The Se
cret Unveiled." the pamphlet which Thaw's
mother had printed and distributed last week.
Thaw declared he had had no part In Its prepa
ration, although he had seen the manuscript be
fore the pamphlet went to press. To Mr. Jeromo
he said he had obtained from John Healy and
Harry Marks, Inmates of Matteawan. letters
received by them from Mr. Jerome, by saying
he would like to have them. As to the state
ment in the preface of the pamphlet that there
was a combination of rich men of professional
standing who wanted to send Thaw to an asy
lum. Thaw said Mr. Morschauser had approved
of its publication.
Q— Did you believe there was such a combina
tion? A.— No.
Q.-Do you believe It? A.-I heard them say
something about It. I thought there might be
something In It.
Mr. Terome asked: "Why did you think so?"
An audible laugh went around the room when
Thaw, with a grin, said he thought Mr. Jerome
had referred to some such combination in his
summing up at the second trial. '
Then Mr. Jerome asked for the volume of the
testimony and read a passage on which he said
he had based his belief 11 at there might be some
truth in the rumor.
"DM you believe thnt." he asked, "prior to my
saying it?"
No, I don't say that I believed it even' after
you said it."
Mr. Jerome himsrlf crrinned at this sally.
Thaw denied that he had seen the proofs of
the pamphlet. He might have remonstrated
against its puhlkation at first, but as Mr Mor
schauaer approved of it he let the question drop,
one of the "cowardly combination of blackmail
ers" referred, to was Abraham Hummel, Thaw
As to Ethel Thomas, the girl who brought suit
against him for beating her with a whip. Thaw
indignantly denied that he knew her well He
mot her first in a house in West 47th street.
She went to his rooms twice and remained not
moro than half an hi>;u\
Mi Jerome wanted Thaw t.. explain why his
counsel had gone to all the trouble and expen.se
of getting the whip with which he was said to
have beaten young girls.
"There wasn't any whip." was Thaw's qstt
