EVANS PROVES
A MATCH FOR
MR. JEROME
Witness Protects the
Defendant
Exhaustive Cross-examination Ends
and Dr. Wagner Is Called
to the Stand to
Testify
By Associated Press.
NEW YORK, March 4.— A long ntrlde
forward In the trial of Harry K. Thaw
Was taken today when District Attorney
Jerome announced that his exhaustive
cross-examination of Dr. Brltton P.
Evans, one of the alienists for the de
fense, hud been concluded.
Dr. Evans had been under fire since
Wednesday morning Inst. He was im
mediately succeeded on the stand by
Dr. Charles G. Wagner of Binghamton,
N. T., who accompaled Dr. Evans on
moat of his visits to Thaw In the
Tombs. Mr. Jerome Indicated that he
zsajr conclude with Dr. Wagner to
wiorrow.
Mrs. William Thaw Is expected to be
the next witness. With Mrs. Thaw's
testimony In, the defense will practically
have closed its case, and it seems likely
that the state's case in rebuttal may
be begun before the end of the week.
what District Attorney Jerome
Will be able to prove on rebuttal re
mains quite as much a mystery as ever.
He complained today, in seeking a
broad Interpretation of the rules of evi
dence by Justice Fitzgerald, that if he
should call any of the defense's alien
ists In rebuttal they might refuse, on
the ground of professional privilege, to
answer any questions put to them.
Plans Not Outlined
It Is not yet exactly clear to the lay
mind to what extent the district attor
ney can go In disproving Mrs. Evelyn
Thaw's testimony.
He has admitted that even if he could
show Stanford "White was out of the
country at the time of the alleged ex
perience with Evelyn. Nesblt in tho
Twenty-fourth street studio he would
not be allowed to disprove on the ground
that it would be a collateral act.
It appears, however, that the prose
cutor can call anyone to contradict Mrs
Thaw in cases where she said she made
certain statements to a third party.
In this connection Mr. Jnrome has in
dicated that he will call Howard Nesbrt
to testify that his sister told him Thaw
had treated her cruelly because sho
•would not tell lies about Stanford
White.
Dr. Evans left the witness stand to
day subject to recall for redirect exam
ination. The witness protected the In
terests of the defense quite keenly
throughout his cross-examination, and
at all times appeared a match for iii O
district attorney. Dr. Evans today,
however, admitted that Thaw had an
Insane knowledge of what he was doing |
on Madison Squore roof garden the
night he shot and killed Stanford Whit'_>. I
Says Senses Returned
In explaining Thaw's actions subso- 1
quent to the shooting, Dr. Evans de
clared that as soon as the defendant
shot White the brain storm subsided
and his senses began to reorganize
themselves, so that the man knew quite
■well what he was about.
He also knew he was attacking Stan
ford White when he shot, Dr. Evans
admitted, but the knowledge was that
of an insane man and the result was of
insane reason.
Dr. Wagner also declared that Thaw
had irrational knowledge of what was
transpiring on the roof garden. Dr.
"Wagner created a stir in court by using
the present tense in responding to a
question by District Attorney Jerome
a to what form of insanity Thaw "has
or had." Dr. Wagner declared Thaw
"Is suffering" from symptoms which
lead toward a melancholy state, and a
State of dementia praecox. Dr. Wagner
declared Thaw's condition of mind at
the time of the shooting was the result
of one of the insanities of adolescence.
The district attorney continued his
■omewhat puzzling tactics. His ques
tioning of Dr. Evans seemed to have the
purpose of showing that Thaw never
•was insane to the extent contemplated
by the New Yor-k criminal statutes.
Again he seemed desirous of having
Dr. Wagner admit Thaw was suffering
from forms of insanity which might not
be curable.
Dr. Wagner was on the stand when
court adjourned.

Imposed on me by act of congress of
March 3, 1891. The utmost care and
deliberation have beon exercised In de
ciding upon boundaries of the proposed
reserves; In all but a very few cases

"If by any chance land more valu
able for other purposes than for forest
reserves is shown to have been In
cluded in those reserves, I forthwith
shall restore It to entry.

lamations, the immense tracts of valu
able timber would fall Into the hands
of the lumber syndicates before con
gress has an opportunity to act, where
as the creation of the reserves means
that this timber would be kept In the
interest of the home maker, for our en
tire purpose in this forest reserve policy
is to keep the land for the benefit of the
actual settler and home maker."

the scalps of coyotes taken some ten

for the justness of the claims against
the bitter opposition of Senator Wolfe,
who was Indifferently supported by

floor talking at once. Wolfe declared
that thousands of dollars had been
wrongfully paid out by the state for
coyote scalps and that these claims
were resurrected every session. He
maintained a stubborn fight for an hour
when McKee's bill was finally passed,
Wolfe's vote being the only one cast
against It.

support of this bill that over 400 tele
grama were sent to the members of the
legislature, all of which emanated from
forty persons.

minority for the Impartial manner In
which they, had presided over the de
liberations of the two houses and both
made speeches expressing gratitude at
the words of appreciation.
A feature of the house session was
the presentation of a club silver service
of 800 pieces to General Grosvenor by
his colleagues of the fifty-ninth con

stories that usually mark the close of
the session the entire house arose,
