COURT REGRETS HE
WAS BROUGHT BACK
Sees No Reason for Return of
"Troublesome Guest" to
The Appillate Division yesterday up?
held the decision of Justice Page, of
the Supreme Court, recommitting '
Harry K. Thais to Matteawan ander '
the original commitment issued by Jus- j
tic? Howling. The decision of Justice '
Page was given after Thaw had been
freed of the charge of con-piracy in
escaping from the Matteawan institu?
tion, for trial of which he vat brought
back to Nt-vv York from New Hamp?
Only one strand now remains of the
legal weh v, oven about Thaw to keep him .
out of the asylum, th 11 being the writ
of habeas corpus, the purpose of which
is to obtain a jury trial as to his
sanity. This writ is returnable for
argument before Justice Hendrick, in
the Surpeme Court, on Monday next.
The order of the Appellate Division is .
not to be put into effect until Wednes?
day, and II aw- will remain in the
Tombs until that time.
Whether the writ of habeas corpus
will net as a stay after Wednesday IS?
mains to be seen. Also, while there is ,
no doubt that there will be an appeal I
from the decision of the Appellate Hi- I
vision, tir?t to the Court of Appeals |
and then probably to the United Slate?
Supreme, Cour!, on a constitu?ional
question, it is not certain that Thaw*
