Then came the assault upon Luyties by
John 11. Murphy, a broker, who found

"Traunmlller set a trap. He read th 3
story of the assault as printed to his
wife, but he told her that Luyties had
been killed. Thereupon it is said Mrs.
Traunmlller went into hysterics. The
trap had lie, n effective.

NEW YORK, Feb. I.— The Thaw jury
1b at last complete and the actual In
troduction of evidence is scheduled to
commence Monday morning. Further
weeding out of the panel Is not Impos
sible, however, as District Attorney Je
rome, who has been contending since
yeserdny afternoon for the removal of
one of the men now In the Jury box,
but who has failed to gain the consent
of the defendant's counsel to a change,
was still reluctant as court adjourned
today to begin '-he actual proceedings
without a further opportunity to plead
with 'Fhaw's advisers.
At his request therefore Justice Fitz
gerald ordered all talesmen who have
not yet been examined to be in court
Monday morning ready for Jury service
in case any are needed. Mr. Jerome
then unnounced that if there should be
no change in the situation in the mean
time that the Btate would proceed to
place all its uirect testimony before the
Jury at the Monday morning session.
The defense was notified to De in readi
ness to proceed by Monday afternoon.
"We are entirely satisfied with the
jury," said Clifford W. Hartrldge,
Thaw's leading counsel, tonight, and ho
added the intimation that he would
not consent to any further alterations
of the personnel.
"The defense vill be ready to proceed
the mlnue the prosecution has finished
its case," declared John li. Gleason,
another of Thaw's attorneys.
Comes as a Surprise
The selection of the twelfth juror
came as a complete surprise at the end
of a long and tedious day — the eighth
of the trial — and Immediately after this
last member of the trial panel had been
sworn in Justice Fitzgerald adjourned
court until 10:30 o'clock Monday morn-
Assistant District Attorney Garvan
will make the opening address for the
prosecution. His remarks will be brief.
The state will then introduce such wit
nesses as are necessary to prove Stan
ford White was shot and killed by Har
ry K. Thaw on the Madison Square gar
den the night of June 25 last.
In announcing that the introduction
will not requiro more than one session
of court Mr. Jerome is evidently of the
opinion that the cross-examination of
the state's witnesses to the actual
events associ od with the tragedy may
not be very extensive.
From the questions which have so
persistently been put to the- talesmen
by Thaw's attorneys as to any preju
dice against a defense of insanity, it la
at last generally conceded that a plea
of emotional insanity will lie the main
reliance of the young defendant.
This probably will lead to a eross
qileStionlng of the state's witnesses atl
to any peculiarity they may have no
ticed in Thaw's conduct the night of the
tragedy, In which event the conclusion
Of the slate's direct testimony may tak"
longer than is now anticipated.
Thaw seemed to be In the best of
spirits as the last juror was sworn.
Is Forty-first Talesman
Forty talesmen had ' n examined in
vain during the day. when Bernard
Qerstman declared he had no suoh
opinion 'In the case that could prevent
his rendering ;i fair and conscientious
venMot, and he was not prejudiced
against any line of defense and would
give the prisoner the benefit of every
reasonable doubt.
"Hut," suggested Dlatrlot Attorney
Jerome, "would you go farther than
that and require the state to remove
every possibility of doubt?"
"I would certainly want every doubt
removed," replied Qerstman, "before i
would vote to convict In a capital ease."
The district attorney challenged the
Juror for cause.
Thaw's attorneys ware not content
to let the talesman bd, and on cross-ox
aminatlon they brought his answers
within the legal requirements Mr,
Qeretman replying t" Mr. Hartrldgu
that he meant by "doubt" any dOUbl
that a reasonable man nii^M entertain.
Juatlce Fitagerald held this to be a
competent answer and overruled im.s
trlot Attorney Jerome's challen- ■.
"Tin- people are content!" announced
Mr. Jerome, and the Juror was sworn.
Thaw smiled In evident satisfaction,

Health Officials of Ultnoifl and Wis
consin have joined in their efforts to
stamp out scarlet fever and other con
tagious diseases in the centers from
which the greatest part of the milk
supply of ( Ihlcago comes.
This action follows an investigation
by chemists In charge of the city lab
oratories, which discloses the fact that
carloads of cream and milk are being
shipped in by a roundabout route from
Genoa Junction ami liassetts station,
Wisconsin, places in which the fever
epidemic is so virulent that shippers
had been forbidden to send milk to
Chicago without wr'tten permission
from the health board.
City Council <-\cts
The health committee of tho city
council yesterday took drastic measures
to suppress the epidemic. They author
ized the employment of 250 additional
medical Inspectors who, with the in
spectors already employed, will guard
all the public schools constantly.
The second move was to urge the
council to appropriate $ir>,ooo at once
for a contagious disease hospital.
The committee passed a resolution
exonerating the city heaith department
from charges of inefficiency and neglect
of duty.
Dr. J. A. Egan, secretary of the state
board of health, arrived in the city
yesterday and conferred with Health
Commissioner Whalen. He is investi
gating conditions over Northern Illi

and will continue his inquiry today.
The Onk Park board of health, at a

Sensational developments are expect
ed in connection with milk investiga

is head of the milk inspection depart

preferred against a large local dis
tributer of milk, whose product is sup

GLOBE, Ariz., Fb. I.— A telephone
message from Koosevelt this evening
states that an attempt made to lynch

with the murder of Mrs. . Jorrla and her

Sheriff Thompson left Roosevelt at 5
o'clock this evening for Globe. A party
of armed horsemen started to intercept
the deputies, but the men drew their
Winchesters and the sheriff ordered
them to return. They complied, but
it is said that another attmept will be

hands as we in California will soon
have, and as this people is more ag
