Declares That Nothing Short of Physl , cal Force Would Compel Him to Sub mit to a Physical Examination Had Promised ' His Attorneys That He Would Submit Plea of Insanity Like ly Now to be Changed to Oue of Jim ti llable Homicide Mrs. Thaw Greets Her Husband tor the First Time Since His Arrest. New York, June 27. That Harry K. Thaw, the slayer of Stanford White, is perfectly sane, was the report made to day by the alienists retained by the dis trict attorney's office to examine the prisoner. This report was made after the physicians had spent an hour with Thaw, who, in defiance of the advice of his counsel, former Judge Olcott, refus ed to answer any questions and declar ed that nothing short of actual force would compel him to submit to a physi cal examination. When the committee of physicians called upon the prisoner Thaw said firmly, as the first member was introduced to him by Dr. Allan Mc Lane Hamilton, retained for the de fense: "I beg your pardon, I will an swer no questions whatever." Then began a general conversation on trivial subjects with Dr. Austin Flint and Dr. Hamilton, Thaw deftly parleying any questions that had any bearing on his mental or physical con dition. Finding him obdurate, the doc tors hurriedly summoned Mr. Olcott, but to him Thaw vehemently reiterat ed his determination to answer no ques tions. "You can put It down to the condition ef my feelings. If you will," said Thaw. "My nerves are unstrung; the tension Is great. I will not be examined to day." Pressed for a clearer explanation of his refusal, he said: "I haven't any; I have none at all. Put It down to obstinacy, if you wish." He had promised Mr. Olcott, before the examiners met, to submit to the ex amination, "This refusal will hurt you," Mr. 01 fcott is said to have pleaded. "I do not care. Nothing but absolute force will get me to allow myself to be examined or to say anyimng io-aay. j ihlnk I first ought to talk with Dr. Hamilton and then have a talk with air. Delafleld. . .Later I will tell, you whether I will talk with the coroner or not. He was taken back to his cell. Mr. Olcott said later that he was unable to account for Thaw's attitude, and that he could only attribute it to unaccount able obstinacy. As his counsel, he said, he had no objection to Thaw answering any of the question addressed to him by the physicians. ' After the alienists had departed Mrs .Thaw was permitted to see her husband ifor the first time since his arrest. She came to the Tombs in a carriage, ac companied by her husband's brother, Josiah C. Thaw- The meeting between husband and wife was affectionate, and they remained together talking in an undertone for nearly an hour. Thaw also received a visit from his sister, Mrs. George C. Carnegie, and Clifford W. Hartridge, of Pittsburg. Before visiting the Tombs Mrs. Thaw had a long conference with former Judge Olcott and Frederick Delafleld, at which it is believed that the line of defense, was discussed and the intention to interpose a plea of insanity is now likely to be changed to one of justifiable homicide. When asked about the letters from White which Mrs. Thaw yesterday turned over to Mr. Delafleld, Mr. Olcott said, that he believed they would be of value to the defense. Further than this he declined to comment on the case. Coroner Dooley announced this after noon that the inquest, which opens to morrow, would not be merely a formal proceeding to establish the cause of White's death. Mrs. Thaw will not appear at the in quest, and it was said to-night that in all probability she would not be re quired to appear before the grand jury. In the meantime' the district attorney's office will prosecute a most searching investigation of the habits and move ments of Thaw and White during a period of several weeks previous to the tragedy. No less than twenty witnesses were examined in connection with the case by the district attorney's office to-day. Among the most prominent of these was Thaw's valet, William Bedford, who has been in his service for six years and is believed to be conversant with the events which are supposed to have been the immediate incentive to the crime. It was announced at the office of the district attorney that Mr. Garvan, who is preparing the case against Thaw, to day discovered a witness wno anegeu that he overheard White make deroga tory remarks concerning Mrs. Thaw while in the Cafe Martin a few hours before he was shot!- According to the witness, whose name is concealed for the present, he heard the remarks of White who was seated two or three tables' away and evidently was not whispering. At that time Mr. and Mrs. .Thaw were in the cafe dining. It is be lieved that this witness will not appear before the coroner, but that he will be reserved for the trial. Another important witness who was examined by Mr. Garvan to-day was Nellie Leahy, Mrs. Thaw's maid. The funeral of Mr. White will take place to-morrow from his late summer residence at St. James, L.

Word has been received here that Thomas E, Waggaman of this city, former treas urer of the Catholic university, who failed for over four million dollars about a year ago, died to day at a farm near Annapolis, Md-, where he had been for a number of months. The cause of his death was cancer of the face. He was sixty-nine years old. Waggaman's failure startled the city, where hundreds of persons had placed with him various sums of money for investment. His art collection, which was regarded as one of the most valu able in the country, was sold at auction in New York in order partially to satis fy his creditors. HAWAIIAN YACHT ARRIVES. Last in 2,447-Mile Race From California to Honolulu. Honolulu, June 27. La Paloma, the Hawaiian entry in the ocean yacht race, arrived here to-day. The distance sail ed was 2,447 miles. After the second day at sea the crew was kept almost constantly at work bailing out the little vessel. The cabin was flooded most of the time- The small size of the yacht made the trip one of considerable haz ard. The times of the competing yachts were as follows: Lurline, 12 days hours 30 minutes; Anemone, 14 days 30 minutes; La Paloma, 15 days 11 hours 20 minutes. NO RATE BILL AGREEMENT CONFEREES STILL AT WORK ON THE MEASURE. Made Clear That Pass Provision Will Follow Closely the Lines of the Origi nal Senate Amendment on That Sub jectWill Nome Certain Persons and Exclude All Others. Washington, June 27. The conference on the i railroad rate bill to-night re sulted in no agreement on that meas ure. The discussion made it clear that the pass provision which Is to be perfected for the action of the committee to morrow morning will follow closely the lines of the original senate amend' ment on that subject-. It will name certain classes of persons who may re ceive passes and exclude all others, . There is also ground for the predic tion that the pipe line amendment will be reported exactly as It was in the last conference report, that is the phrase "common carriers" will give place to the word "railroads." The effect of this will be to permit pipe lines to transport the product owned by the owners of the pipe lines. Before discussing the two disputed amendments it was decided that the former agreement as to all other points in dispute should stand. JUST1 VIA BL It HOMICID E. Reason for Relief That This Will Now be Thaw's Flen. New York, June 27. The Tribune, af ter commenting on the alienists' deci sion that Thaw is sane, will say to morrow: "This fact it is now believed will change the defense, and will cause Thaw eventually to be:brought to trial under indictment for homicide. "In the belief of the defence that Thaw has an excellent chance of ac quittal, various episodes in the life of Stanford White, quoted yesterday, In dicate that a defense of juttifiable hom icide will be entered, and that Thaw may be able to prove that the shooting was justifiable. It is understood that the famous case of Major-General Dan iel E. Sickles, who shot Barton 9. Key, in Washington, will be held up as a precedent. Sickles was acquitted with out the jury leaving the box, it being held at the time that he was justified. BAILEY SCORES HEARST. Denounces Attack on Him In the Cos mopolitan. Washington, June 27. The senate was in open session for about five hours and a half to-day. The May was crowded with business of importance.

KEW IIAVE, WINS THE CHOICE OF POSITION TAKES TOSS IN THE 'VARSITY AND FOUh-OARED EVENTS. Yale Culls the Turn in Freshman Con test Not in Many Years Has There Been Such a Difference of Opinion as to the Outcome of the 'Varsity Race- Harvard Graduates Defeat Yule Grad uates Yale's Substitute Freshmai Four-Oar Crew Takes Race With Crimson. Nef London, June 27, Not in many years has such a difference of opinion been held by college men and others as to the probable outcome of the 'varsity eight's event of the Yale-Harvard re gatta on the Thames as prevails here to-night. It is so well known that both crews have been record-breakers in their time trials; that they are in magnificent physical condition, and that they are trained as never were previous crews trained, that college men feel that the test rests more than ever before in this annual event in the art of rowing. The most important factor appears to be whether Coach Kennedy has a better stroke in his Yale crew than Coach Wray has in his adaptation in thie Harvard eight of the less graceful English style. So uncer tain are men in their belief as to the outcome that money which is usually placed on the crews is going begging for takers to-night. At the quarters of 'both crews the reports come that the 'varsity men are fit for the struggle to- morrov?. The feature of the' closing day of the training was the rowing of tvvomlnor races, which are now looked upon as of considerable interest to men in quar ters. These were the four oared mile race for freshmen substitutes, which Yale won by a quarter of a length of clear water, and the half mile race for graduate crews for the Grave's cup, which went to the Harvard boat by one and a quarter lengths. Last year Harvard won both of these events. As the result of the toss to-night for positions in the three races, Harvard was fortunate enough to call the turn on two of these, having the choice In the varsity and four oared races., Yale won the toss in the freshman event When it came to choosing the lane for each event Harvard took the west one for the 'varsity and the east lane for the four-oared, while Yale took the east course for the freshmen. This means that Harvard has a slight ad vantage of the tide, If there is any, in the varsity race, which will be rowed at four o'clock in the afternoon on a dull tide, and perhaps will be similarly favored for the four-oared race, which will ibe rowed about 10:20 in the morn ing, immediately following the fresh man race. The freshman race will be called promptly at ten o'clock and ob servers of the tides on the Thames re cognize the fact that water conditions change so rapidly with tidal variations that Yale can. also claim to have a slight advantage by taking the east course for the freshman race. The make-up of the crews In the 'gentleman's race was as follows: Harvard, Blake, stroke; Wood, No. Perkins, No. 6 (capt.); Lawrence, No. 5; Ayer, No. 4; Bancroft, No. 3; Covell, No. 2; Marvin, bow; Blagden, coxswain, Yale--d3ogus, stroke; Grlswold, No. 7; Hartwell, No. 6; Graves, No. 5; Fiilson, No. 4; Judson, No. 3; Cameron, No. 2; Williams, bow; Barkalow, coxswain. The rowing order of the freshmen fours was asfollows: HarvardStroke, Kent; No. 3, Hanfstaen, 41; No, 2. Butler; bow, Wood; coxswain, Wise.

McCIure Other Speakers Oration for Chinese Ambassador Yale Influence National Because Yale Men Run Government. The Yale commencement exercises for the year 1906 came to a close yesterday afternoon, when President Hadley bade a formal "good-bye until next year" to the alumni assembled for the annual dinner in the Yale dining hnll. The ex ercises this year have attracted the largest number of old grads and been the most successful in the history of the great institution. Shortly after 1 o'clock the alumni be gan to assemble in the courtyard of the dining hall, and by the time the doors were opened over 1,000 persons were gathered together. Professor Yandell Henderson, of the Medical school, stood on the landing before the entrance and called off the classes, who entered the hall in the order of their seniority. Ho was assisted by Drs. I. K. Phelps and Harry B. Wright. As each, class came forward the -leader was handed a sliver blll-of-fare holder bearing in large fig ures the number of his class. The first to enter the hall was Robert Crane, of the class of '43. He was fol lowed by Samuel T. Rogers, of '44, and Lewis Barnes and Henry B. Chapin. of '47. As these men ascended the steps loading into the hall they were greeted with prolonged cheers. The other class es followed in rapid succession until all were seated. The tables were arranged in long rows lengthwise of the hall. The president, speakers and recipients of honorary de grees were seated at a long table set on an improvised platform situated about midway of the long hall on the Grove street side. The decorations were few and simple. Potted palms were arrang ed along the edge of the platform, and bouquets of blue bachelor buttons in sil ver holders adorned the center of the speakers' table. The galleries at either end of the long hall were occupied with interested feminine spectators, and oth ers crowded at the windows anxious to catch a few words of wisdom and wit as they fell from the Hps of the distin guished speakers. Seated on the speakers platform to the right of Preoident Hadley were Sir Chentung Liang-Cheng, the Chinese ambassador at Washington: Dr. Char-les Ray Palmer, Rev. Joseph H.

Members From House Decline to Con sider Any Compromise on the Subject of the Payment of the Cost of Inspec tion by the Packers Effect May Cause the Failure of the Legislation and the General Arrest of Business. Washington, June 27. An absolute deadlock on the meat inspection amend ment to the agricultural appropriation bill was reported by Senator Proctor to the senate -late to-day, after three ses sions of the conferees had been held. The Vermont senator said that the house conferees had declined to consid er any compromise on the subject of the payment of the cost of inspection by the packers. "The senate conferees offered to com promise," he said, "upon a tax of five cents a head on cattle and three cents on hogs, sheep and goats, to be collect ed and covered into the treasury, the same as any other revenue." He then read the compromise proposition, show ing that the $3,000,000 appropriation pro vided by the house would remain in the bill, and the cost of inspection would be paid therefrom. In reply to a ques tion from Senator Hale he said that the tax would amount to about one-half of the appropriation. The third conference of the day had been concluded a short time before Sen ator Proctor made his statement. At that conference he offered the compro mise proposition, which was met by the house conferees with the argument that it would be unconstitutional, in that the congress had no authority to levy a tax on chattels. In making his statement Senator Proctor sid the conferees had agreed on practically all items, but that the house conferees had positively refused to consider any compromise. He then related the particulars of the proposi tion regarding the cost, of inspection, and added that the house provision had been accepted letter for letter. He said the effect of the position taken by the house would be to cause the failure of the legislation and the general arrest of business. Responding to a question by Senator Nelson, Mr. Proctor said that nothing had been said regarding the date on canned meats. "We did not reach it," he said. "They insisted on their entire provisions; there was no chance for a compromise on anything." Mr. Hale then spoke of the gravity of the situation, and advised that the sen ate refrain from further comment that might excite feeling. "My Impression is that we will do well to leave it over night where it is, and that we should do nothing to in flame the situation, in the hope that better counsels will prevail to-morrow." I see nothing better to do," asserted Mr. Proctor; "the house conferees re fuse positively to join In any report." Senators Hemenway and Hopkins ob jected to giving in the senate the de tails of what had happened in the con ference, because the house representa tives could not be present to defend their own position. Mr. Proctor replied that he had only spoken the truth, and added that the senate conferees had exercisesd the greatest amiability in dealing with the house representatives. Mr. Hale then, in pursuance of his suggestion to let the matter lie over, moved an adjournment, but he subse quently withdrew the motion in order to permit an executive session.
