THAW WILL TESTIFY
WILL TAKE WITNESS STAND IN HIS OWN DEFENSE. For Killing Stanford White in New York City—He Will Tell of Evelyn Nesbit's Refusal to Marry Him Be cause of Her Associtions With Architect White. New York.—Harry K. Thaw will take the witness stand to deliver the final blow in his defense for the kill ing of Architect Stanford White. Judge Delphin Delmas, chief counsel for Thaw, has practically decided that the millionaire defendant should become a witness and corroborate the testimony given by his chorus girl wife. Harry thaw will tell of Evelyn Nes fiit's refusal to marry him because of what she termed her degradation at the hands of Stanford White. He will tell the jury how the fragil child, in tearful words, that day in Paris, sob tiingly told him of her shame and ruin —a story that burned in his soul and fanned the fire of a consuming hatred for the architect. Thaw's lawyers will seek to show by his testimony that he brooded over his wife's wrongs, that the white specter of a girl came to him at night and in his waking hours, and with the hallucination that Stan ford White was pursuing his wife with some subtle poison. When ho saw White that night glow ering at him in the roof of Madison Square garden, Thaw will tell the jury that he believed that, as the "agent of providence," he was directed to kill the architect. Within a minute after the shooting Thaw said to his wife: "It is all right, dearie, I have probably saved your life." It w*- this belief that White was plotting to murder Evelyn that caused Thaw to make that remark, that for a long time was one of the mysteries in the case. May Call Anthony Comstock. Should Anthony Comstock, head of the anti-vice society, recover from an attack of pneumonia before the con clusion of the Thaw trial, he will be called as a witness for the defense and will, bo himself says, give startling testimony to corroborate the testi mony of Evelyn Nesbit Thaw. It is expected his testimony will sur pass in dramatic interest that told by Evelyn. Thaw's will is to be Dolmas' strong point toward substantiating the de fendant's insanity. He hopes to secure Jerome's consent for its introduction "The will of itself," said Delmas, is sufficient evidence to show the effect of White's cruelties on Thaw's mind." Three justices of the supreme court, whoso names are withheld, express the opinion that Thaw is certain to gain a new trial, even if convicted this time, on the grounds of slight error. A fatal error made, they claim, in per mitting Evelyn to lean foi'ward in the witness chain and whisper to the prosecutor the names of men and wom en she knew involved with White. It was previously agreed between coun sel that these names should not be mentioned. Delphin M. Delmas and Henry Me Pike, counsel in the trial of Harry Thaw, who have announced that they will not return to San Francisco at the close of the Thaw trial, have taken a lease for a term of years on a largo suite bf offices in the TJ. S. Realty building, now being erected at Broadway and Cedar street, Mr. Me Pike, in confirming the story of the lease, said: "Yes, we have decided to remain in New York and will add to our already large library a complete set of eastern reports." Mr. Delmas' fee in the Thavr case, It. has been stated, is one of tho larg est ever paid in a criminal case in the state of New York. Titled Women Marched.

Thirty-two million dollars' worth of income hearing securities was the gift of John D. Rockefeller, through h's son, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., an nounced to the general education board, when it assembled for a spec ial meeting in New York recently. The gift, which is the largest single sum every handed out for such purposes, will be used for general educational purposes throughout the countVy. Mr. Rockefeller has previously given the board $11.000,000 for the same work. World-wide will be the appreciation of the spirit which led John D. Rock efeller to give in 'one donation $32, 000,000 to the cause of education in the United States. It is truly said that never in history has any man given at one time so large a sum for social and philanthropic purposes. The liberality of Andrew Carnegie, great as it has been, is unmarked by any thing that compares with this gift by Rockefeller, and when it is borne in mind that the $32,000,000 by no means represents all of the latter's genero sity the present donation stands out all the more prominently. A recent statement of Rockefeller's gifts to the University of Chicago placed the total amount of $19,000,000. Previous gifts to the general educa tion board have been $11,000,000. In Dièse three items there is a total of $62,000,000 given for educational pur poses. Rockefeller has, moreover, been liberal at one time or another in donations to various colleges and uni versities and for other philanthropic objects. It might not he wide of the mark to say that an aggregate of $75, 000,000 out of his fortune has been thus diverted. to REVOLT AGAINST CASTRO. Gen. Paredes Sails for Venezuela Carry Out His Threat.
