Hilling Making Men Present at
Death "Defendants" Sustained.
Washington. July 30.-That the rulings of the
*3smrt of inquiry Investigating the death of Lieu
tenant James N. Button. I*. S. M <'■■ at An
napolis, will not be Interfered with by the Navy
Department was clearly Indicated to-day.
In a letter addressed to Henry E. Davis, counsel
for Mrs.. Sutton. mother of the dead officer. Beek
man Wintlirop, Assistant Secretary of the Navy,
says that the department in view of the facts
must decline to accede to Mr. Davis** request to
vacate the ruling of the court by which Mrs. Sut
ton was declared ta be regarded as a "complain
ant or accuser." while all persons present at the
time of the death of Lieutenant Sutton were re
garded la the position of 'defendants." Mr. Win
throp says in his le:ter:
-" It appears to the department that you have mis
conct-ivcd the effect of the ruling of the court
relative to the status of the officers who were
px-esent or. the occasion in question. This ruling
<losf not change the nature of the court in the
slightest degree. It is still a "court of inquiry"
reeking after facts and not a judicial tribunal with
power to try or to punish. Its function is to de
termine all the facts Incident to the death of
Lieutenant Button, as far as lies within its power,
and to recommend to the department ■whether fur
ther ptwFeediags should be taken against any per
«on. It is in no sense a trial court.
It Is the invaxnable practice of -."ourts of In
quiry that if during: an investigation .?nv \ er-
Ron is placed on the defensive by the evidence
adduced, or by any of the circumstances of th«
case, to notify such person of the fact ; sd to ex
plain to him his. rights in the premises. In this
Instance t!" court was speciflcally Instructed in the
orders by which it waf convened that if it de
veloped during the progress of the Investigation
that any one was entitled to appear as a "defend
ant""- he should be called before the court and in
formed -if his right to be present, to cross ex
amine witnesses and to offer m;eh evidence as he
micht desire. In considering this action it should
not be lost sight of that if the court finds that
Lieutenant Sutton's death was not the result of his
■mil act. but was caused by another person or
!<ersons. such other person or persons, so accused,
will undoubtedly be brought to trial for the off- :;• c.
Those whom the court determines are so vitally
interested In the, outcome of the case as to he <!•■=
ignated us defendants are certainly entitled to
gal aid to assist in bringing out all the fact"
as well as Mrs. Button, on whose representations
tlie court was ordered and who has insisted that
her son's death was caused by one of his fellow
officers. There would, therefore, serin iob» no im
propriety la the court's action in regarding Mrs.
Button as a "complainant or accuser."
This la no way shifts the burden of proof, as
you apparent!*- assume, as the court Is in no re
•pert a trial court, nor do s !t place upon sirs
Sutton or her counsel the burden of determining
who was responsible for Lieutenant Button's death.
That is the duty of the court.
The department must therefore decline to accede
.to your request :o vacate the ruling of the court
of inquiry.
I trust that it Is needles* to assure you that the
department desires the fullest and most rompl'te
inv«"s!i£rati<i!- of the entire matter. It will »>e satis
fied only when all proper means have been ex
hausted to clear up every doubt as to the manner
'.n Tvhich the deceased officer met his death, and ap
preciates any assistance that has been or will be
rriio-ye-] by v.-i to thin end. It Is the duty of the
court of inquiry to determine as definitely as may
be possible Who is responsible for Lieutenant But
toa*« <3»«th. and that duty the court is sworn with
out partiality, to fulfil.

What other basis for your belief have you.

sir. Mr. Comstock told me he had certain l** l «];«
proof of these alleged practices, which le.t no

stock was an expert of experts on this SU "JS ,'
Q.-Didn't he mv he didn't press your case De
cause you had only statements of these «■ '"'■
and because he could get no corroboration of
them? Didn't he explain to you the reason why
the information you gave could not be used in a
criminal action was that there must be corropo
ration of the statements of such women, a.
What he told me was that he could :iot get mien
persons quickly enough and could not .get then
sequestered, and told me there was not enouß'i
corroboration to hold them on.. ,„♦_
W. Did you think. Mr. Thaw, that the state
ment of an abandoned woman giving the stoi .
of her original fall from virtue was to Ix trusted.
A.— By no means: no, sir! - -~
Q. -How long had you held this belief as to
Whites practices? A.— Three years at least. l
think. 1 think since the early part of .'."M.
Q The next matter that I want to find out
• bout Is the reason of the preparation byj rou or
these memoranda for your leading '" unse , l ; n *£:
Delmas. Now. these papers and your M">ment
all indicate to me that you wanted it brm«ht!<mt
that in killing White you were ■doiiiK a P'"'-',
worthy thing, to be compared with the case ni
I>a\id and Goliath or St. George and the dragon.
A.—l objected particularly to the comparison to

yourself a« like tboM of these heroes of old? A
They w. r. not all like that. There was very little
of tl'wt in thorn. ' ■ .
i' —Way did you trlve tho^e paper* to Mr. i" 1
mas? A.— Because 1 thought it would assist him
in his remark* before the jury. 1 knew what he
would wish •• Try to say to the Jury, and « old not
know to what length Delraas would go. i knew be
would wish to «ho» to the Jury these facts.
y- ,'m you Jhinlv that with human nature as it
gncs there was a fair chance to Influence the Jury?
Of .-its.. I d 'it mean to condemn yon for so at
i^mriinic. You were on trial for your life, and
everything that might help you you would natu
rally 'is* That seems to be the only expiar.at'oti
of the preptr-Htion of these memnrandn? A. — Ex
actly. I made ;h -.-e sufCKeation* because 1 wanted
to take advantage of every chance there might be
to help out my c?se.
Thaw reached forward nervously with out
stretch ' hand and asked Justice Mills if he
might look at the papers in question The justice
smiled kindly, however, and said he did not think
he would need to interrogate the witness further
on this point. "We will past to another topic."
he added.
Then, speaking in a fatherly way and with the
game sympathetic look that was intended to put
Thaw at his ease. Justice Mills said In a low,
conversational tone:
'.Vow. yOQ g»OW. Mr. Thaw, that the People
are pomp to arffii.' here, as- has been indicated
throughout th« hearing Of this case, that the
conduct of your own case shows that you suffer
from what is tertn<*d 'l iagg< IBllMl ego.' V' i
know what I mpan°" the justice added, with a
kindly nod. and Thaw boweri. '
'I have Ix^en observing you throughout the
trial, and have remarked that although y<'U have
the assistance of one of the ablest counsel prac
tising in this department, one of tfv most learned
and respected lawyers In Dutches* County, you
have been constantly interrupting him with ad
vice, suggestions and notes."
Thaw's jauntin<M« of manner was by this timr
replaced with a very serious and noMcerued look.
Justice Mills went on:
"1 have learned that you dismissed your first
attorneys. Tel! me. Mr. Thaw, why did you dis
miss your first attorneys?"
Thaw braced'himself and forced a smile as he
answered: "I had several attorneys. One of
them was oi: the stand here." .
Justice Mills continued in his calm and friend
ly way:
"Mr. Thaw, this constant 'hang'- <.f o.iitis'!
indicates t<> my mind a desire for dictation all
the time. Sow, h< r«- you are, Mr Thaw, a man
not learned in the law. Why. In the perilous
position yni were in during your first trials,
would you not trust, these different lawyer* you
had? Hay you felt In a!] these trials and pro
ceedings that you were better able to conduct
this case than w^rc y..ur lawyers?"
"No, sir." replied Thaw, with evident eag< m
ess to dispel any unfavorable impression lie
might hare made <ni tne fourt; "1 would be a
tiiizy man if 1 did."
Q. — Then, why don't you trust Mr. Morschauser?
A.— l do. absolutely.
Then why all these suggestions to him, and
interruptions? A. — I only endeavored to civ* htm
some facts and matters of information thai i
thought he might not have, but which might be
Q— Haven't you felt better able to conduct this
case than Mr. Morsels) a user T A. — No, certainly not.
Justice Mills then said to Tb&w:
"These three points which 1 have asked you
about left an impression on my mind. I wanted
to get a clear Idea of your attitude on these
three things', but I don't want you to think I have
made n decision on them; I have not. My pur
pose in asking you these question* was simply
for my own guidance n,nd to get a clearer view
of your own attitude on them from my own ex
amination "
Thaw paused s moment, and then, clutching
his palmleaf fan and wiping his face with his
handkerchief, he walked back to bis Beat at the
counsel tabu between Mr Morschauser and Mr.
Jerome. He sank into his chair, and. as if mind
ful for one. that the eyes of the crowded court
room were upon him, he leaned over and said
something to his mother.
Mr. Jerome started the proceedings yesterday
morning by immediately catling upon Thaw
aprnln to give his opinion of his own mental
condition at the time of the shooting of White.
Q. — ito you now think that you were legally In
sane? A. — i don't know.
Q.-\Vhai if your opinion? A.— That I was.
y.— What do you mean by saying you may have
been legally Insane at the time of the murder of
White? A. 1 «m of the opinion of the jury that
acquitted me. «f the medical men who have <•*-
amtned me for The last three years and of Judge
Morschauser, that there is no danger of any re
currence of anything.
Q.— What do you mean by medically insane? A.—
Any actual mental disease. .'.
Thaw denied that he had looms In the apart
ment of Susan A. Merrill, where lie was accus
tomed to receive" young pirls. Then Mr. Jerome
switched to the charge that Thaw placed a girl
in a bathtub full of scalding water. Thaw said
he might and might not have known a Ruth
Lamk-rt, the supposed victim, lie denied beat
ing a boy in London, though lit hud heard a.
suit for assault of some kind had been brought
against him. He had never, lie said, brutally
whipped a young boy in Ptttafmrg and had
never driven a horse to death,
Wore you not commonly known a*. "Mad
Harry" and "( Vary Harry"? A.— I have heard
that reference made to you about twice as often
as to me. i never was referred to as "Mad Harry*
naif as frequently an I have heard you yourself
called "Crasy Jerome." ,
«J. - How were you and Evelyn going to domi
nate PittSburg society when you became Senator
from Pennsylvania? How did you. ; , man Incapable
of putting coherent sentences together, i xr»<t to be
come Senator from Pennsylvania? A.— l had one
advantage-that was money. That Is likely- to be
a handicap in politics, but in my case my father,
made $10 for his country to $1 he made for him
self. by building railroads, etc. That w« uid have
overcome the prejudice against people with money
There was a second reason— that my father had
given more to colleges ,nd charities than he had
left to any of my brother* or sis! ts or invself
about twice «a much. That was *pc- ißli\"i R li\" an
advantage. We had lots of friends, and there
was nothing against It.
His eyes flashed when Mr. Jerome Said: - /ju
did hot believe all these cock and a bull stories
about young girls being ruined," referred la tn
the codicil to Thaw's will.
Some of them he did. He also believed his
wife's story that White had criminally ass:t ilted
her. •
Q.-Dldn't It strike you as a fishy sort of tale
that one about the room with mirrors and Wtttr
things in champagne? A.-She never said here
were bitter things.
Then Mr. Jerome sprang ■ surprise on the
prisoner by producing the tablet which had been
found In Thaw's cell in the Tombs. Thaw MM
he prepared it for » report to Mr. Peabody when
the lawyer took charge of his case. Mr. Jerome
Insisted that Thaw read .from the page b«£Ore
him. The witness complied unwillingly. These
were the first words:
Drunk at lunch with father and !»■"•''«'; :l: l ; ri l !. I l^
nt commissions-Harry can r-ay nothing, a * M lias
no money; all comes from Mrs. I haw.
Thaw squirmed and halted, but Justice Mil's
ordered him to continue unless he desired to
claim the privilege attached to a confidential
communication. Thaw stopped a moment, and
then read on:
What will Mr*. W. think of this No d.f. She
couldn't understand, before E. and McK.
If Harry was half as crazy an Mrs. T. he would
have been in Matteawan long ago. To X. : i oil

to hold Joe up. but Joe would hedge around so
from any Interview with Jo« one .could not te
which that Joe was mighty slick as H. knows all
about his acts but he always kept quiet about 11.
The former Countess of Yarmouth and Mrs.
William Thaw looked at each other and smiled
as the witness read th" passage: "Mrs. W. and
Ed crazier than Harry; and Alice, too." Josiah
Thaw and his wife also listened to the reading.
Thaw himself declared that the rambling notes
were understood only by Mr. Peabody and him
Here are some Jottings in table form, evidently
containing his explanation at why his first trial,
for which Messrs. Delaft>!d, Hartridge, Del nas,
<;i. ;•..-.!,. McPik* and O'Reilly were engaged to

The afternoon cession of the court -was given
over to the reading of testimony taken at
Thaw's two trials, on which Mr. Jerome will
base his hypothetical question to tha alienists
as to Thaw's mental condition. The hearing
will be resumed on Monday.
Evelyn NesWt Thaw was missed In the court
room yesterday. Harry Thaw did not see» to
be agitated by the report that his wife intended
to bring suit for divorce, but Mr Morschauser
said that the suit would be contested if brought.
"Mrs. Thaw has always been well treated." he
said. "At present f1i»» Is receiving from the
Thaw family $0,200 a year."

Usual Midsummer Affair of Y. W.
C. A. on Monday Evening.
Some years ago. when the summer school at the
Young Women's Christian Association was ju!«t be
ginning, it was the custom to give the members a
"midsummer garden party" in the little garden be
tween the association building and th« Margaret
Louise Home. Now that the classes Include more
than eight hundred girls. it Is impoWible to have
them gather In the garden, M ih^ chap* is dec
orated like ft garden, and th« party Is heM th.-re.
This year's midsummer party will take place next
Monday night. August 2. at I o'clock
Some of the girls, members of the classes In
elocution, singing and gymnastics, will provide the
entertainment. There will be a play, "The ' ">
stinate Family," given by girls from the elocution
class. The singing class will begin the programme
with "The i,ost Chord" and end ft with a chorus.
The gymnastic class will give some folk dances.
Including an Irish Jig, the duo dance from "I*
Tzigane" and a fourteenth century Morris dance.
The elocution class will render scenes from Long
fellow's "Pandora." Miss Doheny, the chaplain,
manages the entertainment.
For all the Other Monday evening entertainments
professionals are engaged. Last Monday there
were dramatic recitations from "The Man of the
Hour," and a proof of the girls' Interest was that
not one of the seven hundred in the audience left
before the end. On August 9 then will be siere
opticon views of Western mountain scenery. Noth
ing please* the girls more than stereopticon views.
On Thursdays there are classes in knitting, shirt
