"By the way. what was the dato of

"As nearly as I can remember, it wna

'You were then 16 years old?"
"Your mother dressed you lo go?"

First Stop Toward Downfall.
"The dingy door opened, nobody seem
ing to open It. We wont up some steps
to another door which opened to somo
other apartment. I stopped and asked
the young lady where we were going and
she said 'It's all right." A man's voice
called down "hello.' ".
"Did vou see lite man then?"
"When did you?"
"When we got to the top of the stairs."
"Who was it?"
"It was Stanford White."
"What did you find in the room or stu
dio to which you went?"
"A table set for four."
"This Is all what, you lold Mr. Thaw?"
asked Mr. Jerome.
"It was." replied Ihe witness. "I told
him everything "
There was a halt in the testimony while
Mr. Jerome and Mr. Delmas whispered.
"How were you dressed?" asked Mr.
"I wore a short dress with my hair
dowh my hack."
The witness said they went up Into
brella was swinging.
Mr- Jerome objected.
Told Hor Mother All.
The witness said that afterwards they
went for a drive to the park and returned
to the house with Mr. White. She said
when she got home she told her mother
everything that happened.
"Did your mother subsequently receive
a letter from Stanford White."
"What was In the letter?"
"It asked my mother to call on Mr.
White at No. 160 Fifth nvenue."
"When your mother returned did sho
tell you anvthlng?"
"What did your mother tell you?'
"That he asked her to take me to a
dentist and have my teeth fixed and for
her to have her own fixed, too. She said,
'No;' that It was a very strange thing.
Mr. White told her that he did that for
the other girls."
"When did you see While again?"
"I saw him In the studio. I got a note
from him Inviting mo to a party and say
ing a carriage would be awaiting mo upon
the corner Before he had sent me a
hat, a feather boa and a cape. There
was another man and girl with us."
"Where did you go?
"To the studio In Madison Square tow
er. We had a very nice time there. Mr.
White said I was only to have one glass
of champagne and that I was to be
brought home early. I was brought homo
early to the door of my house. I told
Mr. Thaw that wo had several parties of
this kind in the tower."
"Did ypu sec Mr White again?''
White Would "Take Care" of Her.
"Ves, he came to sen my mother, told
her that I would be all right in New
York and that he would take care of me."
Mrs. Thaw said she met White In Sep
tember. 1901. in a studio In East Twenty-second
street. Tho door opened of
itself, and the house looked al first at?
though no one lived there. She said
that she went upstairs and mot Mr.
While, a photographer and another man.
"What did you see there?"
"There were a lot of expensive gowns
. "I went into the dressing-room to put
on the dress. Mr. White knocked at the
door and asked if I needed any help. I
said 'No.' "
She related her experience In the stu
dio, and said she had posed until she was
very tired and that White, who had come
In, ordered food. The photographer had
left, and after they had lunched she went
into the dressing-room to remove her ki
mono and put on her dress.
"1 shut the door while I was lnFide.
Mr. .White came to the door and asked
if I wanted any help. I said 'No.' "
She testified that she drank but one
glass of champagne, and when she dressed
sho got Into a carriage and was taken
back to tho hotel.
Was Alone With White.
"The next night I got a note from Mr.
White asking me to come down to the
studio for a luncheon after the theater
with some of his friends. I went down
to the Twenty-fourth street studio again
and found Mr. White and no one else
there, 'What do you think?' ho Bald to
me. 'the others have turned us down.'
Then I told him I had better go home,
and he told me that I had better sit down
und have some fruit. I took off my hat
and coat. Mr. White told mo he had
other floors in the garden and that I had
not seen all of his places.
"So he took me up some stairs to the
floor above, where there were very beau
tiful decorations, and a piano. I played
for him and he took me into another
room. That room was a bedroom. On
a small . table stood a bottle of cham
pagne and one glass. Mr. White poured
out Just one glass for me. and I paid no
attention to It. Mr. Whito went away.
came back and said:
" 'I decorated this room myself.' Thon
ho asked mo why I was not drinking my
champagne, and I said I did not llko it,
It tasted bitter. But he persuaded mo to
drink and I did.
"A few moments after I had drank It.
there began a pounding and thumping in
my ears and the room all got black "
Mrs. Thaw was almost in tears at tills
"When I nwoko my clothes had all been
taken off mo. I Btarted to scream. Mr.
White got up and threw a kimono on me.
As I sat up I saw mirrors all around the

White asked me to keep quiet, saying
that It was all over.
dried All the Night.
"When he threw the kimono over mo
he left the room. I screamed hardor than
ever. 1 don't remember how I got my
clothes on. Me took me home and I sat
up all night, crying."
"Where was Mr. White when you re
covered?" "He was upon the bed, beside me, un
dressed." "What did he say afterward?"
"He made me swear that I would never
tell my mother about it. He said there
was no use in talking, und tho greatost
thing in the world was not to get found
out. He tiaid the girls In the theaters
were foolish to talk. Ho laughed after
wards." "Was Mr. Thaw excited when you told
him these things?"
"Yes. he was excited, and walked up
and down tho room. Wo sat up all night.
He said it was not my fault, that no one
could blame me and that I was only an
unfortunate girl and that he did not think
any the less of mo."
"Did he offer to marry you again?"
"Yes, and I told him that If I did marry
him the friends of Stanford White would
laugh at. him and at me. as they sus
pected our relationship, if they did not
The witness told Thaw that It would
not be well to marry owing to his family.
Women Moved to Tears,
Mrs, Thaw recovered her composure af
ter sho got over the sensational part of
the story. Many of the women in the
courtroom were crying, and the most In
tense silence provallod.
Mrs. Thaw 6ald that she had lold Thaw
about her oarlv life with her mother and
of "her financial difficulties. Tho monoy

to hor mother. That was their only means

and I posod for them."
"Did you tell Mr. Thaw all this?"
"Did you tell him how much monoy you
"Yos, it was ?17 or $1S a week."
Then, tho witness continued, she ap
plied for a position upon the stage. The
first manager to whom she applied said
"That It was not a baby farm" and they
did not vont to take her. "I danced for
tho manager, and he offored me a place,
dlvoctlng mo not to tell how old I was."
"When did you first meet Thaw?"
Had to Go to Hospital.
"How many times had you seen him
between then and 1903?"
"I had only seen him once In tho mean
time." "Were you III during any of this time?"
"Tea, I had to go to a hospital."
"When you saw Mr. Thaw In 1P03,
did you tell him about going to school?"
"I told him that Mr. White had sent
mo to sehooi,"
The witness told of her sickness and
the operation to which sho was obliged to
submit, and of Thaw's kindness to her
at that time, which was early in 1803.
After her recovery Thaw arranged the
European trip for the witness and her
mother. Thaw followed them to Europe.
Here reference was made to a letter
that Thaw wrote tho witness while she
was abroad, and Mr. Delmas sought to
Introduce it as evidence.
Mr. Jerome objected.
"What Is the relevancy of the letter?"
asked Justice Fitzgerald.
"It's contonts have direct reference lo

Mr. Thaw and is an evidence of the ef

the statements so made," replied Mr.
"If it were proper to admit Ihe state

Delmas. "Is It not proper to admit a state

them was upon his mind?"
Mr. Delmas said that he did not have
his authorities at Ihe moment.
It was then 12:25 and Mr. Delmas

Former Judge William K. Olcott. who
was the first counsel engaged for Thaw
in his defense, appeared during rooess
and conferred with Mr. Garvan.
He was told that It was understood
that Mrs. Evelyn Thaw had made a state
ment in regard to her relations with
White and with Thaw to Judge Olcott
when the trouble first came up. Judge
Olcott was asked to present tho signed
statement If It were in existence, or to
be ready to testify If he wero wanted.
Mr. Delmas was about to renew his
argument for the production of the letter
of Harry Thaw to an attorney named
Longfellow Just after the Paris Incident,
when Mr. Jerome said he would with
draw his objection. Ho first asked per
mission to read the letter. It was as fol
lows: Letter That Thaw Wrote.
"Mrs. N. Insisted sailing New York

On a slip of paper enclosed was written:
"If you cannot read this don't worry.
Please telephone her Incog and wiro me
at my expense."
The letter was signed "H. K. T."
Mr. Delmas offered another letter writ
ten by Mr. Thaw. Mr. Jerome objected
on the ground that there was nothing to
Indicate its date.
Mr. Delmas declared that tho letter was
admlssable as tending to show a state of
mind, regardless of when It was written.
"Suppose it should have been written
yesterday. " .suggested Justice Fitzgerald.
"I think it would be admlssable," re
plied Mr. Delmas.
"As showing that the defendant is now
insane?" quickly Interposed Mr. Jerome.
"That he was Insane on the nlsht of
Juno 2tl, 190C," said Mr. Delmas.
Is Thaw Now Insane?
Justice Fitzgerald sustained tho objec
tion. "If the claim Is that the defendant Is
now insane, the letters are admissible,"
remarked Mr. Jerome.
Mrs. Thaw was shown one of the let
ters and asked. "Was this letter writ
ten before or after June 26, 1900?"
Mr. Jerome objected on the ground
that Mrs. Thaw was not qualified to ex
press an opinion.
Tho court sustained the objection.
The subject of letters was then dropped.
In response to questions by Mr. Delmas,
Mrs. Thaw described her return from
Europe In 1003, which preceded tho re
turn of Mr. Thaw. She said that she
brought a letter from Thaw to Mr. Long
fellow, which she delivered. She first
saw Thaw a month after his return at
the hotel whero she was stopping. She
refused to seo him alone, so another man
was present at the Interview.
"Tho second man," asked Mr. Delmas,
"was a member of the bar, a man of
standing In tho community, was he not?"
" Vac "
"What happened at this interview?"
"I eat on a trunk. Mr. Thaw came
toward me and 1 asked the other man
not to leave the room. Mr. Thaw said
to me. 'What Is tho matter. Why don't
you want to see mo any moro?' I told
him I had heard certain things about
him and did not care to see him. He
asked me what I had heard and I said:

same girl at the same restaurant. He
asked me to tell him all about tho stories.
T told them all. tho story of the girl In the
bathtub, of tying a girl to the bedpost
and whipping her, and I told him all tho
stories that friends of Mr. White had
told me; that Mr. Thaw took morphine
and that It was while he was under the

him to tell mo the story again and ho did
so. But his story this time was that It
was a waiter who saw tho Incident. It
was dlfforent than the original story. I
asked him 'Why,' and he said, '1 told you
that to please somebody.' "
Mrs. Thaw said she finally told Mr.
Thaw (hat she could find nothing In the
stories that had been told her about him.
"What did Thaw then say to you?"
"He said It was all right. 'You know T
never He to you,' he said.''
Mrs. Thaw said she saw Harry Thaw
the night of Christmas eve, 1903, at the
.Madison Square theater.
Mrs. Thaw was here directed to step
aside temporarily to allow tho testimony

"But." argued Mr. Delmas, "I have
asked the witness to state from memory
whether he received tha letter previous to

"You may answer that," said tho Judge.
"Yes, two years before," said Mr. Long
fellow. On cross-examination, Mr. Jerome drew
from the witness that he had refreshed
his memory from a letter-book in the of
fice. "Was that a book having to. do with
professional relations with clients?"
"Not altogether." said the witnoss.
Mr. Jerome withdrew objection to a

Many Long Arguments.
Arguments between the counsel took up
most of the time of the afternoon session.
Throughout the afternoon there was noth
ing startling and those who were an
xious for sensations were in gloom.
Mr. Longfellow was finally allowed to
say that the socond letter shown him was
received in November, 1903.
"Was it received in a professional ca
pacity?" insisted Mr. Jerome.
"While it may have been," said the
witness, "It does not follow that I car
ried out the Instructions It contained."
Mr. Longfellow identified four of five
letters and fixed their dates as prior to
June 25, 190C. Mr- Jerome persisted in
asking whether or not the letters came
to the witness in his professional ca
pacity. Tho witness said again that he
presumed they did, though he did not
carry out tho Instructions.
"I communicated their contents to Mrs,
Thaw," he said, "and that's all I ever

called Mrs. Thaw and then proceeded to

requiring moro than fifteen minutes in

Tho letter then referred to some unmar

FAILED TO DELIVER.
A Flagrant Case of Ineffective Postal
Special to The Tribune.
OGDEN, Feb. fi. The acting postmaster
will have some other things to consider
and explain before the day when he is re
pudiated and turned down by the Utah
church delegation which secured to him
tho honorary place of acting postmaster
at Ogden, an appointment that will not
bo confirmed as permanent postmaster,
according to reports from Washington.
A flagrant case of failure of delivery
comes to light through a letter mailed
from Springfield, Mass.. on January IS,
1907. at fi p. m.. addressed to Mrs C. J.
Lull. 2337 Adams avenue, Ogden, the
chlrography of the envelope being very
clear, and the necessary two-cent stamp.
The letter hears the postmark of being
received at Ogden at 6:50 p. rn. on .Tan
uary 21. but strangely enough, It was in
the advertised list, and It was not until
January 20 that the letter was received
by the addressee, she having seen the ad
vertisement In the paper.
Stranger still Is the fact that the letter
was addressed to the Identical house In
which Mrs. Lull was born and In which
she has lived all her life, the carrier could
not deliver the , letter whero thousands
of letters have been delivered in the many
years the lady has lived there. The Ogden
city directory shows tho name of Clifford
J. Lull as residing at 2337 Adams avenue,
but the vicarious mall delivery was un
able to find the number and had to adver
tise the letter.
