NEW YORK, Marcn ll.—Before night the long anticipated suit will be instituted by Evelyn Nesblt Thaw for the annulment of her marriage to Harry K. Thaw, according to statements made by Dan O'Reilly, attorney for Evelyn and A. Russell Peabody. Thaw's coun sel. The ground for the suit is that Thaw was insane at the time of mar riage In Pittsburg, April 4, 1906. In bringing the suit Evelyn, according to to-day's reports has arranged for her own future in a financial way. A set tlement of $50,000 will be made on her, it is said at once, and when the suit is ended an annuity of »15.000 will be fixed upon her. Mrs. William Thaw, Harry's mother is reported to have agreed on this financial settlement. Harry Thaw is determined to fight the suit to the bitter end, and this promises to make the hearing a complicated one. Mrs. William Thaw, as "next of kin," will bo made a defendant with her son. She will do all in her power, although a nominal defendant, to assist Evelyn's suit. Thaws Instructions to Peabody to fight to the end are positive and the lawyer said today he will carry them out. Will Be Heard by Court. The annulment proceedings will be heard according to present plans before a justice of the Supreme Court without a jury.

The young wife will also take the stand, O'Reilly positively declares today. Thaw's will, written the night of his marriage and which figured as one of the principal exhibits in proof of his Insanity at the murder trial will also be introduced.

Today the lawyers would say nothing about it except that I the estrangement had begun shortly a(t Gr the first trial of Thaw ended This trouble was of a pergonal nature. according to O'Reilly. For the sake | ,,f appearances they outwardly maln y j ne( j their friendly relations until after the second trial, although at times their coolness, even In tho court room was a subject of comment. With Thaw sent to Matteawan, Eve lyn confident a reconciliation was Im possible. determined to seek an annul ment, It 1» said.

Tax Collector Leach is hustling and ail persons who have not paid their taxes have been given a chance to do so before the first of April as the tax collector says he must collect the money. In speaking of the outstanding taxes he said this morning: "There is no use of quibbling over the matter. The law has been changed and it is up to me to collect the taxes. I propose to do so and liens on property will be in order. Property owners can blame the law and not the collector, for I must protect my bondsmen. Capitation tax must also be paid for every man on the list has a vote and gets light and police protection as well as good schools. The taxes are four cents a week and surely every man In the city ought to pay his share of the ex pense of running the city. So far as I am concerned I know no one In this case.
