OH THURSDAY THUS FATE Be Determined by Supreme Court Judge Mills THE CLOSING ARGU1YIENTS On One Point, the Unrelia bility of Evelyn's Testi mony, Both Sides Agreed Jerome Finds Some thing Wrong With Thaws. White Plains. Aug. 7. In a cell at White Plains Jail. Harry K. Thaw awaits the decision as to his sanity. The supreme court hearing in the habeas corpus proceeding against the state of New York, ended this after noon when his attorney, Charles Morschauser. summed up his case District Attorney Jerome preceded Mr Morschauser. this morning. Justice I-aac N. Mills said he would try to hand down a decision on Thursday next. The prisoner's mother with her daughter. Alice, formerly Countess of Yarmouth, and hrr son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Josiah Thaw, will remain here until Harry's fate is set tled. Mrs. Thaw's statements show that if this case goes against her son she will lose no time in trying to free him by other means. The addresses of District Attorney Jerome and Mr. Morschauser today were alike free from outbursts of ora tory that characterized the two hom icide trials. The district attorne;- was particularly temperate and of Thaw, Jerome spoke pityingly, as that "poor boy" Only two witnesses among several hundred testified for Thaw at his trial and hearings, were picked out by Je rome for rebuke. These were Evelyn Nesbit Thaw and Dr. Britton D. Evans. Closing his arguments Jerome said he believed that all the witnesses did their best to tell the truth except Evelyn. "I do thinks- declared he, "this girl is guilty of deliberate falsi fying. That she told her husband of Injury at the hands of White, I have no doubt." He declared that heredi ty must bo considered in the question of Thaw's sanity. Said he: "The whole Thaw family has developed what might be called a peculiarity. From such stock the average man Is sane but you get a pretty rickety sort of child from that family." Jerome said that Susie Merrill's tes timony of Thaw's escalades with va rious women at her house was unre futed. He said Thaw's attempts to commit suicide in Paris was dramatic and strongly characteristic of his al leged mania, of which the shooting of White was the culminating illusion. Evelyn Thaw came in for condem nation from both attorneys. Morsc hauser said that the rejtictance she ex pressed to testify of Thaw's alleged threat to shoof her was assumed. He said that on on the night before she testified, she had consulted with Dr. Austin Flint in Jerome's office and had formed a combination with the alienist against her husband. Morsc hauser concluded with a denunciation of Stanford White and an appeal for Thaw's mother that left tears on his own cheeks. PERHAPS TOO CURIOUS. A Man Who Was Watching Doing at Reno. Reno.
