Will Set Apart $50,000 For Investiga tion of Hii Death tn Case of a Vio lent or Suspicioua End, and $7,500 to Be Used to Obtain Legal Redress From Stanford White. New York, Feb. 19. "I never want ed to shoot the creature. I never wanted to kill him. I knew he was a Xoul creature, destroying the mothers and daughters of America, but I want ed through legal means to bring him to trial. I wanted to get him Into court to bring him to Justice. But Provi dence took charge of it; it was an act of Providence." This is Harry K. Thaw's own ac count of the killing of Stanford White. It wao given by him to Dr. Brltton D. Evans, the alienist, last August in the Tombs. Dr. Evans repeated the pris oner's words to the Jury which is try ing Thaw for his life. District Attorney Jerome fought hard last week against the introduc tion of this evidence, which the de fense believes Is conclusive proof that Thaw did not know his act was wrong. But once the testifying physicians had declared that In their opinion Thaw was insane at the time he made the statements to them, the rules as to evidence permitted the Introduction of the prisoner's words. In further bulwarking their conten tion that Thaw was insane when he klled Stanford White, the defendant's counsel succeeded in placing before the Jury the will executed by Thaw on the night, of his marriage In April, 1905, and a codicil to the will executed at the same time. Again Mr. Jerome fought the evidence, but he significant ly withdrew his objections after Dr. Evans testified as his expert opinion that Thaw was Insane at the time he executed the will. Appointment of Commission. The fact that the district attorney seems disposed to permit the admis sion of testimony of every character, provided It is preceded by an opinion by a witness that the man was of un sound mind at the time to which the testimony refers, was taken as further Indicating that at the psychological moment, and If he deems his case strong enough, Mr. Jerome may de mand the appointment of a commis sion to pass upon Thaw's state of mind at present. The will and the codicil, as read to the jurors, were offered in evidence as cumulative evidence of Thaw's mental unsoundness prior to the shooting of White. In his will Thaw provided that his executors should set apart the sum of $.)0,noo for the investigation of his death in case of a violent or sus picious end, and for the prosecution of the persons suspected of having had a hand in his taking off. In the codicil Thaw left to a lawyer In Pittsburg the sum of $7,500 to be used to obtain legal redress from Stanford White and one other person, whose name was not allowed to be read, for the benefit of four young women who, Thaw declared, were the victims of "degrading assaults" In a house "furnished and used for orgies by Stanford White and other Inhuman scoundrels." The names of the four young women were mentioned by Thaw, hut were not made public. At the end of the day It seemed that Thaw's counsel had made still harder the task to be met when they begin to carry out their plan of having Thaw declared of sound and discerning mind today. Two other physicians will take the stand, Doctors Hammond and Jelllffe, and It is said that it will be part of their function as witnesses to detail the Improvement In Thaw's mental condition during the period of his confinement in the Tombs, on the theory that the stress which caused the mental explosion wbb removed with the death of Stanford White. It was also said that Mrs. Evelyn Nes bit Thaw may go on the stand this afternoon to complete her story. Delmas Again In Control. The trial entered Its fifth week. The opening of court found Attorney Del phin Michael Delmas again in his ac customed place at the head of Thaw's counsel table. During the day there was no surface indication of the storm which It Is said raged among counsel for the defense the latter part of last week after the trial was adjourned because of the dpath of Juror Bolton's wife. Mr. Bolton was at the criminal court's building early and said that ho Jelt perfectly able to go on with the trial. It was decided that the jurors bo not again confined until they retire to reach a verdict. Dr. Evans, who has been by far tho most Important witness for the de fense among the medical experts, lengthily recounted his conversations wjth Thaw In the Tombs. He testi fied how Thuw declared that his law yers and pli slciuiiH were in a con spiracy with the district attorney "to railroad" him to an asylum and to prevent his case from coming to trial. He declared that Thaw asserted "they wanted to close this matter up." Thaw told tho physician that in hlR attempts to bring Stanford White to Justice hi romplalned to District Attorney Jer ome and that the Utter told him to let the matter drop; that there was nothing to It. He also complained to Anthony Comstock and to a detective agency. Dr. Evans was corroborated as to most, of Thaw's statements by Dr. Charles G. Wagner of Rlnghamton, Tho first floured ai a witness early last week. GOVERNOR HIGGINS' WILL. Public and Charitable Bequest Estate Estimated at $14,000,000. Olean, Feb. 19.
