1 When Dletrlct Attorney Jerome had
finlshed wlth the policeman, Mrs. Wil
j llam Thaw was called to the stand.
! As she took the oath she gave her
| name a* Mary Copley Thaw and her
j resldence as Pittsburg. She was ques
tioned by Mr. Llttleton. Thaw looked
' Intently and earnesUy at hls mother.
i Her testimony closely followed that of
tho last trlal, bc-ginnlng with the re-j
j turn of her son to hls Plttaburg home'
in Novetnber, 1903, after Kvelyn Nes?
blt had told hlm her story in Paris thnt

Mrs. Thaw said she frequently asked
her son what was worrylng hlm. and
finally he declared that a beautltul
young glrl hc was introduced to had
had a terrible experience ln Now York.
The mother told him he should not
worry about, such matters; that the
girl had a mother who should care for
her. Thaw repiled that thc' glrl's
mother had not looked after her, and
that was why lt all had happened Harry
Thaw eventually told his mother. tho
young glrl'a. name was Nesblt.
'Thc name meant nothlng to me."
declared the witness, "for I had never
heard of the young' woman before.
Harry said ithad all occurred whlle
Mlss Nesblt was a little glrl in New
York. 1 tried to Impress upon him that
he was not responsiblo for the slns of

aaid to her that tho Nesblt glrl had

"When dld you next neo hlm?
"Not until after the sensatlonal re.

and was austalned In many of them.
Mr. Llttleton noted an oxeeptlon each

Several scrvanls and her mother ac

that the publlc, Includlng the nows
paper reporters, be excluded from the
