Mr. Conger r",,k a number of statements j fri m employes .it the asylum to-day in an effort to piece out the full story of the \? orklngi ol this conspiracy, Among the statements obtained at the asylum for Mr. Conner was one from Mrs. James Maher, a laundress at the insti tUtl. u. who saw Thau make his es? cape.

Other statements were obtained from James Maher and Edward Mulhall, attendants In the hospital tenl Maher said that Barnum did nol seem at all excited after Thaw's escape.

He said he was in conversatlo with the men in the car for seven minutes Another man In Matteawa who said that Butler s photograph wa th? likeness of the leader of the flv men was Lewis G.

Although there were many person In various directions from Matteawai who were at first reported to have seei the car with Thaw in it, when the, stories were carefully investigated to day all of them proved to have only th haziest kind ?if impressions, whicl Were discarded as being useless ll trai inc: th.- route of the tlight. Details of the conduct of the fiv?. men who assisted Thaw to escape dur? 'nf? their stay at the Holland hotel wer< ??riven to-day by William Gordon, owner of the house, who appeared as a wit | ness at Poughkeepsie. Next in author? ity to Butler in the party, he sud, s? ? m? ?1 to be the man who registered M Roger Thompson. He said that Thomp? son was far the most genteel appearing [ o? the men. All the others he said, were "rough" and spent their time drinking. Thompson held himself entirely aloof from the others, h" said, and in con \ersations with Lern Churchill, mana? ger of the garage, showed he was thor? oughly familiar with automobiles and well \ ers?d in the highways leading In and out <>f Matteawan.
