New York, June 29.—Harry K. Thaw
entered a formal plea, of not guilty
when arraigned on the charge of mur
der In the court Of general sessions
today. The plea was entered with the
reservation that it may be withdrawn
on Tuesday next
Thaw was taken into Justice Cow
ing's court, where he was to plead to
the murder charge behind three other
prisoners, one of them a negro charg
ed with larceny. When Clerk Tenny
•Tead the charge of, murder in the first
degree for the killing of Stanford
White, he asked Thaw what he had to
say in regard to the indictment, and
the prisoner answered distinctly, "Not
guilty." His counsel immediately in-'
terposed an amendment to the plea
asking of the court leave to withdraw
the plea any time up to next Tuesday.
This was.granted'ahd a moment later
the prisoner was iway from the bar
and re-entered prison.
Thaw was remarkably cool and col
lected. According to the Globe today,
investigation has brought to light the
fact that Stanford White, who was
supposed to be wealthy* had been liv
ing' beyond his income' and. was heav
ily in debt owing $300,000 to one
young member of a prominent family
and as inuch to other persons,. In ad
dition to this, the-Globe says White
had'drawn so heavily from the archi
tectural'firm of which: he was a mem
ber, that he had been notified: that-he
could draw no more,'but would be al

sane, but the information gathered by
the police indicated that the fnurder
had been prompted by a desire for
revenge. This information, he said, was
in line with a brief statement made by
Thaw,-' immediately after hlB arrest,
that White had ruined his wife.
Dined at Reatanrant.
It has been ascertained, Inspector
Schndttberger said, that on Monday
evening the Thaws and two friends
had dinner at Martin's restaurant in
Fifth avenue, and that while they
were.at the±.table the. attention 'of
Thaw was directed by his wile to
White, who had etiteretl the restaurant
and had seated himself at another
table. Th^w did. not show any undue
excitement at the time, but paid $23
for the dinner, which had included two
bottles of wine, and gave a liberal tip
to the waiter.
Their Lait Meeting.
Thaw did not follow White from
the restaurant, and the police have not
been able to ascertain that the two
men met again before the fatal en
counter on the Madison Square Garden
root several hours later. There was
some evidence, however, the inspector
said, that Thaw had been looking for
an opportunity to shoot White, because
he had been told that White had
wronged Miss Evelyn Nesbit previous
to her marriage and had boasted of it
later. There was also information to
the effect that Mrs. Thaw was greatly
disturbed by the appearance of White
in the re8taufrant on Monday evening.
Letter* From White.
Thaw, advised by some of the most
prominent lawyers of New York and
Pittsburg, is silent. Mrs. Thaw is with
friends, ready to respond to a call
from the district attorney's office. Per
haps tho most interesting development
was. the announcement that Mrs.,
Tha# told her husband's lawyers that
had "received many letters from
Mr. White since her marriage. One of
these she threw on her dressing table
a few days ago, and her husband
found it and vowed vengeance on the
writer. While the finding of the let
ter may have been the direct cause
of the tragedy, Thaw's jealously and
hatred for White were of long standing
and the young man made frequent
thredts to kill him.
Did Thaw Meet Whiter
The police are busy endeavoring to.
verity a( report that Thaw and White
had met' on Sunday night in Burns'
restaurant, in .Sixth aveune, and had
talked alone together until nearly 4
o'Clock' Mbilday hiornlng. There was
another report that White had been
seen in'conversation with Mis Thiw in
a theater lobby recently.
The police placed little credence In
the story told by an-actress that White
'told hei^ two weeks ago he had been
warned1 of Thaw's threat to kill him,
butthdt he regarded Thaw as a harm-'
less "dope':flend." niho/V/
