Promptly Discharged and Thaw Remanded to the TombsWithout Bail to Await a Second Trial. BUT ONCE NEAR A VERDICT ONLY EIGHT BALLOTS CAST DURIXG WHOLE TIME. Final One Seven for Murder In the First Degree and Five for Acquittal On Ground of Insanity Remarkable Change on Last Ballot by the Latter In the Hope of .Winning Over the Former At One Time All But One Favored Verdict of Manslaughter Juror rfart Voted Consistently for Murder In First Degree Juror Bol ton, Whose Wife Died During Trial, Also for Murder Jury Considered Every Phase of Case Except the "Unwritten Law" Counsel for De fense Criticise Delmas' Reference to "Dementia Americana." Naw York, April 12 Hopelessly di vided seven for a verdict of guilty of murder In the first degree and five for acquittal on tone ground of Insanity the Jury which since the 23d of last January had been trying Harry K. Thaw, reported to-day, after forty-seven hours and eight minutes of deliber ation, that It could not possibly agree upon a verdict. The twelve men were promptly discharged by Justice Fitz gerald, who declared1 that he, too, be lieved their task was hopeless. Thaw was remanded , to the Tombs without ball to await a second trial on the charge of having murdered Stanford White, the noted architect. , When this new trial would take place jBO one connected with the case could v night express an' opinion. District ltorney Jerome declared that ttiere were many other 'persons accused of homicide awaiting trial, and Thaw would have to take his turn with the rest. As to a possible change of venue, tooth the district attorney and counsel lor Thaw declared theu Kould make no such move. Thaw's attorneys will have a confer ence to-morrow with the prisoner to decide on their next step. They will make an early application for bail. Mr. Jerome said he would strenuously op pose It. He added the belief that, as seven of the jurors had voted for "guilty," his opposition probably would be successful. In that event Thaw has another long summer before him in the city prison, for his case on the already crowded criminal calendar cannot pos sibly be reached until some time next fall. The scenes attending the announce ment by the jury of its inability to agree upon any sort of verdict were robbed of any theatricallsm by the ' general belief that after their1 long de liberation and the reports of a wide division of sentiment the jurors could make no other report than one of dis agreement. Thaw, surrounded by the members'of his family the devoted aged mother, the pale, young wife, the titled sister, Countess of Yarmouth; Mrs. George Carnegie and Edward and Josiah Thaw, the brothers received the news in absolute silence." When It became known that the jury was, about to make Its report, and that the case would be disposed of, Thaw called his wife to a seat by his side and sat with his right arm thrown about her until he was icommended to stand and face the jur ors. Smiling and confident as he en tered toe court room, Thaw sank limp ly Into his chair, when Foreman Dom ing B. Smith, In response to a question by Clerk Penny as to whether a verdict ihad been agreed upon, said: "We have not." . The mother, her features hidden be hind a dense veil of black, sat stolid and motionless. In Ill-health of late, she had felt severely the strain and stress of the long hours of anxious waiting. The wife, by her husband's side, gripped his hand tightly as the jury foreman spoke, and then when he sunk down by her side she tried to cheer him as best she could by saying that she believed he would now be ad mitted to ball and that a second .jur" would surely set him free. The motn cr, the sisters and the brothers, pale and well-nigh exhausted by their tedi ous, nerve-wracking wait for a verdict, smiled wanly at Thaw as he was led away again to the Tombs. They were permitted to speak with him for a few minutes, to bid him be of good cheer, before he crossed the "Bridge of Sighs" to the cell In the prison which until a few minutes before he had hoped that he was about to quit forever. Outside the big square criminal courts building only a few hundred persons were gathered. Thousands had been there earlier in the day, but police re inforcements had arrived with instruc tions to keep every one moving, and this had soon tired the idly curious into a willingness to depart. Inside the building in the galleries overlook ing the court and gathered along the corridors were groups of more' fortu- iContinued on Third Page.) RIVAL POLO LEAGUE.

BRITISH PRESS CONDEMNS AMERICAN PROCEDURE AS SHOWN IN THAW TItlAL. Methods Here Which Are Declared to be Melodramatic in the Extreme, Compared With What Is Claimed as the "More Dignified Procedure of the English Bar" Rayncr Case Given as an Example "Low, Dignity, Common Sense and Order All Wanting."' London, April 13. The time consum ed in the trial of Harry K. Thaw for the murder of Stanford White, compar ed to the rapidity and exactness of English justice as illustrated in the case of Rayner, the murderer of Wil liam Whltely, In which the court con fined the lawyers and witnesses to ac tual facts connected with the crime, and comparisons between American methods, which are declared to be mel odramatic in the extreme, and what is alleged to be the "more dignified pro cedure of the English bar," form the basis of the comment in the newspa pers this morning. All the papers publish long editorial articles on the Tiiaw case, and most of them review the various stages of the trial. It Is declared that American prestige has suffered severely, and the case Is called a "signal proof of the utter inefficiency of American states manship to evolve a practical legal sys tem." ( 1 One paper says: "Law, dignity, com mon sense and order, all have been wanting," while another declares: "A strong English judge would have made short work of tfre trial, reducing to a minimum its degrading sensational ism." Surprise is expressed that Justice Fitzgerald did not dominate the pro ceedings, as would ah English judge, and prevent the defense from "getting up gush and greasy sentiment about a girl wife," and the prosecution from "such a flagrant abuse of justice" by the questions Mr. Jerome was allowed to put to Thaw's wife. The methods of counsel generally are condemned. The editorial articles practically Ig nore the tremendous Interest this trial awakened in England. A majority of the newspapers here have devoted much space tq pictures, news of and the com ment on the trial, breaking the record In this respect of foreign criminal cases. Attacks Protection. Boston, April 12. At a dinner of the Massachusetts Reform club held at Young's hotel to-night Franklin Pierce, of the New York bar, addressed 200 members on "The Tariff and the Trusts." Mr. Pierce attacked protec tion and said the United States had less need of that policy than any other country in the world. He pointed to the great profits large Industrial cor porations are making, and condemned what he termed the materialism which pervades everything commercial. Wesleynn Debaters Win.

MORSE WILL NOT CET N. E. NAVIGATION CO. NO GROUND WHATEVER FOR RE PORTED SALE AND TRANSFER. Situation Quite the Reverse How Misconception Might Have Arisen Steps Just Taken to Merge With the N." Y., N. H. & H Part Of Plan of President Mellon for Consolidating Not Only the Marine Interests of the Steam Corporation, but Also the Elec tric Under One Management. While there' is ground for the state ment that since -the directors of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad company rejected the Morse offer of $20,000,000 for the New England Navigation company's properties, Mr. Morse renewed the negotiations, and asked that a price be named, it can be stated, now upon the highest author ity that 'there is not the slightest ground for the report of the sale and coming transfer of the New England Navigation company's properties to .him. In fact, the situation is quite the reverse. The fresh reports concerning the sale have undoubetJly arisen from steps which have just been taken to merge the New England Navigation Interests with those of the New York, New Ha ven and Hartford Railroad company. The preliminaries to this merger in the form of fiscal summaries and reports were of a nature to lead to the false rumor. This merger with the New Haven cor poration of the New England Naviga tion company's interests, in formal of ficial and legal shape, is a part of the plan of President Mellen for consoli dating not only the marine interests of the steam corporation, but also the elec tric interests in the street railays un der one management. In this way he hopes to secure greater economy and efficiency of administration in the whole New York, New Haven and Hartford system. It is probable that the next step In the Important and, extensive consoli dation of the various properties of the New Haven company will be the mer ger of the interests of the Consolidated railway, which Is the holding company of the steam corporation in Connecti cut, and that later will come the for mal merger of all the street railway properties in Rhode Island also. The latter are subdivided among several holding companies, and will require considerable legal disentanglement. . As the merger of the New England Navigation company with the steam corporation binds it more tightly to the latter, and blends more closely the in terests of the two companies, the ef fect is to make any sale of the New England Navigation corporation's in terests to Mr. Morse more remote than ever, and negatives all present reports of a sale. Along with the consolidation of the electric and marine properties will also go as fast as possible the merger of the 'New Haven company's subsidiary steam lines, following out the policy which President Mellen has steadily pursued. A high officer of the New Haven company has recently state that a year or two more will find all the interests of the system merged, ex cept two or three of the large Massa chusetts lines now under lease. IENA EXPLOSION. Commission Finds It Due to Decom position of Powder. Toulon, April 12.

Baseball Results More Interesting Than Disagreement In Thaw Case. PRtsiburg, April 12. Pittsburg receiv ed the result of the Thaw trial with hardly as much enthusiasm or interest when it was flashed upon the bulletin boards of the newspapers as the base ball bulletins.

Among the places where the greatest Interest was displayed was the Du quesne club, one of the swell clubs of the city, and of which Harry Thaw was a member. Balloon Covers 812 Miles.

Evansville, Ind., April 12. The Hen dricks club, the largest democratic or ganization in the state, while celebrat ing the birthday of Thomas Jefferson to-night, adopted the following nd tel egraphed the same to John Temple Graves, of Atlanta, Ga.: "The Hendricks clulb.of Evansville, believes that, in the interest of a 'squar deal,' Roosevelt should nominate Bryan for president in 1908, as there is now no doubt that Bryan was beaten in 1896 by the contribution of money by insurance companies, railroad compa nies and tariff-protected monopolies, and that President Roosevelt knows this to be a fact, and that Mryan In 1S9G stood on the platform on which Roosevelt now stands on railroad regu lation.'' Roanoke, Va., April 12. William Jen nings Bryan in an interview to-day was asked for an expression on the suggestion made by John Temple Graves, of Atlanta, at a banquet on Wednesday night at Chattanooga, that Bryan nominate Roosevelt for presi dent. Mr. Bryan said: "I said at the banquet in Chattanoo ga all that at present I can say. I then said: 'As at present advised I cannot see that It is my duty to nominate Mr. iRooaevelt.' In both of my campaigns I stated that I would not be a candidate for a second term if elected and as I have endeavored to secure a constitu tional amendment making a president ineligible for a second term I could not conscientiously urge the renomlnatlon of Mr. fioosevelt for a second term even if there were no other reasons." ' In speaking of the Harrlman-Roose- velt episode, Mr. Bryan said: "The president seems unduly excited over the alleged $5,000,000 raised by Wall street to prevent his re-election. If Wall street is opposed to any doc trine held by President Roosevelt it is certainly not a republican doctrine. When we came up against the corrup tion fund of 1896 ..we found no more ar dent champion of these special Interests than Mr. Roosevelt." Mr. Bryan spoke here to-night under the auspices of the Daughters of the Confederacy and met here his daughter Grace, who Is a student at Holllns in stitute and whom he had not seen since last fall." ' APPEAL FOR KELSET. Counsel Thinks Governor Hughes Mis taken About Man. i Albany, April 12. In an eloquent speech lasting nearly two hours Former Supreme .Court Justice Edward W. Hatch, late to-day before the s6nato Judiciary committee, concluded the ap peal of Otto Kelsey against removal from the office of the slate superinten dent of Insurance, recommenled to the state senat on February 20 by Gover nor Hughes. At the eonclusbn of Judge Hatch's speech the hearing was closed. Probably no definite action will b5 taken by the committee batire its regular meeting next Wednesday. "History tells," said Judge Hatch In his speech, "of Pbntlus Pilate bringing forth a man and saying: 'I tell you I find no fault in him. Behold the man.' " 'Yet the cry of the populace was 'Crucify! Crucify Him!' " "The overwhelming character of the proof in this case must show," con tinued Judge Hatch, "that the super intendent of insurance has discharged his duties to th letter, and fulfilld ev ery requirement of the law. "Th governor was mistaken honestly, no doubt, but nevertheless mistaken with regard to the administration of Mr. Kelsey in the department of insur ance." Judge Htitch called attention to the omission by Governor Hughes in his message to the senate of any mention of the fire insurance situation and de clared that the executive made no ef fort to familiarize himself with the ad ministration of the department.

To raise the $100,000 Mr. Stead propos. ed that every boy anl girl in colleges and universities throughout the United States donate fifty cents.

Pittsburg, April 12. Mr. Stead in his address on "The Next Step Towards International Peace" said: "I have just made a journey through ten countries for the purpose of finding out what is the next step towards In ternational peace," said the speaker. "I have seen three kings, two queens, one prince regent, and all the prima ministers, foreign ministers, ambassa dors and public men that are worth seeing, and I found them all unani mous upon two things. The first was that they were quite sure that what ever might be the case with the nin other countries, they declare with cer tainty that their government and their nation were most absoluetly devoted to peace, and were most resolutely deter mined to prevent war. The second point upon which they were all agreed was that the greatest If not the only danger to the peace of the world lay In the existence of a large number of violent, unscrupulous and irresponsible newspapers, which were constantly en gaged In making mischief. . "The imperial chancellor of Germany, Prince Von Beulow, said to me: The emperor is for peace, the king is foi (Continued on Eighth Pago.) Postal Telegraph Official Resigns. New York, ' April 12.
