NEW YOllK, April 3.—The Thaw lunacy commission this afternoon went into executive session for the purpose of examining Thaw privately, commissioners declared that they had had sufficient expert testimony with out listening to the testimony of Dr. Chales A. White, of Washington. Thaw came into the trial room early and took his usual seat. Ho was look The ing well, and did not appear worried at the prospect of facing the lunacy board alone later in the day. Dr. Dlefendorf was the first witness called. He said in his opinion Thaw is not capable of understanding the pro ceedings against him or to advise hia His impression of Thaw's counsel. suggestion to Deinxas was that they in dicated a mind which was not sound. Thinks Thaw Still Insane "I believe this défendant, " he said, "at the time of the killing of White, was. suffering from delusions which gave a motive for the crime. As long these delusions are maintained he cannot advise with his counsel ratjon 1 base my opinion on the fact as ally. that he had delusions and that they af^ still maintained." Dr. Dlefendorf was asked to point out what he considered the evidences of in sanity In Thaw's memoranda, mentioned one o Thaw's notes which has appeared in the newspapers. The witness then declared that an notes given to the He other of Thaw's papers in which he declared the "prose cution is back bÿ blacklegs," showed evidences of insanitiv. At this point Evelyn, who had not been present when the hearing began, came into the court' room. Dr. Diefendorf was (in the stand at length, the- gift of his testimony some being that Thaw was meclcally insane, a'though ic.gully responsible. He stood by his eclaratlon ■ that Thaw was the he killed when He declared Thaw victim of delusions Stanford White, was a paranoiac. Based Opinion on Letters cross-examination. Hartrldge, brought out that Dr. Diefendorf, in an swering Jerome's hypothetical question at the trial had based his opinion that Thaw knew the nature of his act In killing White largely' on the letters of fered in evidence in the trial, and that he based an opinion that Thaw is in the memoranda, which he • ■ii eaue now on said showed delusions similar to those indicated In the letters. He contrasted Dr. Diefendorf's evi dence at the triai, holding Thaw was at the time of the killing with his sa ne affidavit made in support of the appli cation for a lunacy commission swear lug he is insane now. This called forth a protest from Je rome. ■ Dr. Charles G. Wagner, one of the origina' alienists for the dcfencee, took the ; and when Dr. Diefendorf had been 7 released. "in your opinion, doctor, based on conversations and your observation of him. Is he able to advise his counsel?" asked Hartrldge. "In all my conversations with hlmnie has acted a,nd conversed in a perfectly rataionai manner." think he is able to under "Do you stand the procqeÄngs annalist him?" "Very clearly." Chairman McClude asked: "You think, then, this defendant Is capable of understanding his position, the nature of the proceedings against him ,and of advlsTTlg V-wcounsel?" "I haven't the slightest doubt in my mind that he is." Dr. Wagner testified: able to say 'that from my examin er him this morning that I have been anything to warrant "I am stion unable to discover the belief that Thaw Is not sane. I don't consider a lhalf hour's examination suffi cient to decide auch a question as that." Dr Wagner offered a strong bit of testi mony in Thaw's favor, in answer to ques tions by Chairman McClure when he said he had talked with Thaw to-day and found him apparently rational on the subject of Stanford White. "I asked him." explained the doctor, 'll considered himself an agent of he still Providence In killing White, and the pris oner answered 'yo*—that he had come to see that that was not so. "1 asked him If toe understood what his position was and 'thought it serious. He buswered he thought his position is ser ious. but that he believed his attorneys had put up a good case. "I asked him whether ho had made any krungements for a financial settlement With his attorneys, and he said he cer tainly had made such arrangements with koine of the attorneys. Others who were Ills personal friend« toe had not thought to come to terms with them It necessary before the trial. MASONS AT MIDDLETOWN R. K.

DOVER, April 3.—When one who has I htousands or hundreds of dollars tied In fruit gardening, in pcachw*. plums, and pears, and wakes up in April to find thej water pipes in the kitchen frozen and everything engulfed In a frigid wave there is concern. The concern was caused not only among the persons who Have large means Invest ed peach, plum and pear orchards and in early strawberries, but among the ranks 0 f those who enjoy and delight to pur chase 'these fruits. In the spring ol"1906, at about this period, a freezing six'll came with high wind, and when the investiga lions subsequently were made. It was f oun j that the fruit wo« principally all killed.

H., April 2.—The next imovo of the plaintiffs In the suit to make the leaders of ll|e Christian Science Church account for their imanaigviment of Mrs. Mary Baker <1. Eddy's millions .will probably toe a til reot attack upon Mrs. Eddy herself. To this they hâve 'been driven by the motion of the "Pleasant view clique" In transferring all of Mrs. Eddy's property to trustées, who yesterday petition'd the court for leave to »upptant the "next friends" iwho brought the pres ent suit. The opposition will meet this trustee ship by the allegation that Mrs. Eddy was not competent to execute such a dcid, and stich a conte, illon l'an be derided only toy the appointment of a 1 con-mi selon to Inquire into her mental condition. Ex-Senator Chandler, counsel for the plaintiffs. Is In Washington, hut at torneys here who have studied the case say that by no other means can the last step of the defence be met. If the court grants the petition of the new trusteed and the trust stands the origi nal petitioners will be helpless. Counsel for the plaintiffs declare that the appointment of a conuntsslon will gel at the point on which the whole case rests. The fact that no charges arc made against the Eddy relatives who were the original "next friends" in taken as an Indication that they will itol toe supplanted. If the case over gets before itoo court the Christian Scientists will try to show that the action was really instituted toy prejudiced person«, ami that the tela tlves of Mr* Eddy, who «» "next friend a" were forced into the conlro ivtrsy.
