Harry Kendall Thaw, slaver of Stanford White es caped from the Matteawan state hos pital for tho criminal insane early today Wlihln an hour after his dash for liberty he had crossed tho line dividing the states of New Yorl: and Connecticu. and tonight he Is beyond the reach of New York au thorities It is believed that extradition ie impossible and that Thaws freedom Is assured unless he is held for in sanity in another state and commit ted to some asylum there. On Board Yacht. boarded a yacht lying off the roast, with tho Intention of landing at some southern port and then pro ceeding to Pittsburg Dr Kelb issued an official state ment t.. night placing the responsibil ity directly upon Guard Mulhail and Guard Bantam, He said "I believe It was an inside plot. Thaw knew he had no chance In court with me George Mulhail was the nearest person to Thaw when he made his dash for libert 'There was no force used to hold him and no words spoken It was evident that the thing was all cut and dried, and the most suspicious thing Is the fact that It was fully a quarter of an hour before the escape was reported to me by Barnum. Regrets the Escape. "I wish to offer $500 nil t nf m v personal funds for Information that may lead to the recapture of Harry Thaw. I regret, exceedingly to say that no attempt appears to have been made to detain the man or prevent his escape " Thaw's escape was one of the most dramatic affairs of the kind ever re corded. After knocking down a gate man who was admitting a milkman to the Matteawan asylum grounds, he leaped into a taxicab standing Just outside the wall This was headed for the Connecticut state line and the moment that Thaw entered the chauffeur put on full speed and dash ed away. Before a half mile had been cov ered b the taxicab it overtook a six cvlluder Packard touring car that had been moving slowly, also toward the Connecticut line The taxicab slack- I ened speed and Thaw leaped out as the smaller machine drew alongside the touring car The door of the lat ter was open and Thaw leaped aboard. As the door slammed the Packard speeded away at a rate of at least eighty miles an hour The machine dashed througn Stormville, N Y . fourteen miles from the asylum without any diminution of speed and, according to late re ports received by the asylum author ltles, crossed the Connecticut line in the vicinity of New Caman. Conn. Result of Conspiracy. Dr. Reynolds Charles Francis Kelb, superintendent of Matteawan, be lieves that Thaw's escape was the re sult of a carefully planned and well executed conspiracy. He received Information after I Thaws escape that led him to be lieve, he said, that the fugitive had been carried to a Connecticut seaport town, where a yacht had been wait ing off shore to take him abroad The superintendent ordered the ar rest of Howard Barnum, the asylum guard who was on duty at the time that the wealthy youug slayer broke away from the institution to which I ho was committed on February 1.

Because of the conditions under which he took office. Dr Kelb had taken extra precautions to preven1 just what happened todav He has ordered a rigid investigation to de termine just what attendants, if any: were Involved In the successful plot to free Thaw Since Thaw was sent to Mattea wan, more than five years ago, his mother Mrs Mary Copley Thaw of Pittsburg, has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars In attempts to have him freed legally from restraint 'lhe aged mother arrived in New York unexpectedly from her summer home at Cresson, Pa., this afternoon, and Joined her daughter, Mrs. George Car negie, who Is stopping at tho Gotham hotel Mrs. Thaw refused to say anything when new s of her son s escape first reached the hotel, but Mrs. Carnegie was apparently greatly surprises. "M mother and 1 had Intended to go to the hospital tomorrow to see Hany," said she ' We knew nothing of his intentions or have we any Idea where he Is or what ho Intends to do. it Is a groat surprise to us all." As soon as Evelyn Neablt Thaw heard of hor husband's escape she asked for protection She derlared she believed her life in Ganger, and accordingly she was given police pro tection. She is also being guarded by a private detective hired by Ar thur Hammersteln. This detective accompanied her to and from the Victoria theater, where she Is per forming In audeville.

His case, if he keeps out of New York state, forms a striking parallel to that or John Armstrong Chanler. who was declared insane in New York, but es caped to Virginia where he lives un molested Ho has changed the name of Chanler to Chaloner. oo PERU'S MINISTER VISITS SALT LAKE Salt Lake, Aug 18 "Peru Is a fine, progressive country, with big and growing mines, a flourishing ag riculture, a warm climate, an IntolU gi nt people, and the best prospects In the world You see I have been in southern California and have learn ed how to boost ' " Senor Frederlco Alfonso Peiet minister from Peru to the United States.

Second North, Salt Lake, was Instantly killed at noon today His skull was fractured, the spine was broken and an arm and lng were badly bruised In the fall Mr, Newell was a lineman in charge exterior wiring about the Garfield nielter. Mr Newell had been visiting at bis home several days and attended a Salt Iake theater Saturday night Returning from the theater, he told members of his family that he felt there was something wrong at Gar field, either with wires or his men Passing a restless uglht, he rose early yesterday morning and caught the first traiu for Garfield. Immed iately upon reaching the smelters ho asked many questions concerning wires and the early forenoon found him making inspections. Groups of employees of the smel ters and fellow linemen were watch ing him when, it Beemed, he lost his hold and fell. A Grtleld sur geon was called, but examination re pealed thai Newell had been killed instantly oo EVELYN IS NOW AFRAID Wife of Stanford White's Slayer Has Detectives to Guard Her to and From the Theater Thinks Hus band Means to Do Violence New York. Aug 17 Under the proctlon of the police and a private detective, the latter hired by Arthur Hammersteln, Evelyn Nesblt Thaw went to and from the Victoria the ater on business connected with her vaudeville engagement there, in mor tal fear of her life. For with her husband Harry K Thaw, roaming at large, the beautiful young woman who Is now doing a dance with Jack Clifford at Hammorsteln's and over whom the famous Madison Square garden tragedy occurred, believes that her life is in danger. For the first time todav Evelyn told of the last words between her self and her husband. So ominous were they and are the now to her that she feels that "anything may happen to me now with Harry out of the asylum " Thaw's Threat. "I will have to finish you to com plete m Job," are the words which uv.v iuc uiuuu oi lue youug who when with an almost maniacal smile Thaw addressed her for the last time Just as she had concluded testifying for him during the White Plains ex amination into his sanity now more than two years ago. "And what's more, he meant It. I know that look on his face. I know how remorseless he Is In what he de termines to do," said the young wom an I knew' it only last summer when at the hearing again at White Plains and behind the big palm leaf fan he used all during the hearing, he made Ugly faces and stared and glared sul lenly at me at frequent Intervals while the hearing was proceeding." No Longer "Child Wife." The Evelyn Nesblt of today Is a far different creature from the little round-faced Evelyn Nesblt I saw and interviewed shortly after the killing of Stanford White in 190G. She seemed little more than a child then, and there was a pathos and helpless ness about her that is no longer to be seen. Evelyn Thaw la now a woman a woman with poise, with self-possession and understanding and w-ith a remarkable calm and a complete belief In herself. "Ham can do me no harm unless he does harm to my little boy," said Evelyn this evening. "That boy Is my all my present, my future, my everything. Nobody can know what It all means and w:hy motherhood Is sueh a hallowed thing, except she who has borne a child There Is such a beauty in the thought that God has entrusted a human soul and a baby's life to your care and be ing." "By the way. Mrs Thaw," I asked, "did Harry know when the little one was born?" Kept Birth a Secret. "No. I purposely kept it from him and Russell was a ear old be foTe the story of his birth appeared In the papers Only a few close friends knew, and they were pledged to secrecy. What I have to sav re garding the birth and paternity of my little boy will all come out in good time I do not want to go into that now. I can prove all I have to say about our boy, but there Is no reason for doing so now. Later the world will know all of the facts." oo CALLED HOME BY WIFE'S DEATH Following the announcement of the death of his wife, Mrs Kate Bennett, who died at her home in South We ber yesterday, word has been re ceived from Delbert R Bennett that he Is leaving West Virginia Immedi ately on his return home Mr. Bennott has been engaged In missionary work In the eastern states. Mrs. Bennett was a daughter of Mr8 Jane Douglas, residing at WeBt We ber The body Is at the Larkin un dertaking rooms In this city, and no arrangements for the funeral will be made until after the arrival of the husband NO TOMATOES CONDEMNED "Other than that the Idaho pure food commissioner has not con demned a single can of our tomatoes and that no tomatoes will be shipped back here to be destroyed, the story is all right," was the denial made by H. L. Herrington, vice president of the Utah Canning company, todav. re gardlng the published article from Boise, Idaho, to the effect that 16.000 cans of the vegetable had been found to be unwholesome. Mr. Herrington returned at noon from a business trip to BoiBe The Utah Canning company oTf cial went to Boise to investigate, fol- I lowing a report that tomatoe packed in the local plant were being exam ined by the 5tatc authorities. He found that State Pure Food Commls sloner James H Wallia had collected nine cans of tomatoes, which he de clared to be in unwholesome condi tion Upon comparing the contents' of the nine cans with tomatoes packed by othor concerns they weTe found to be equal, If not superior. In quality, according to Mr. Herrington "We shipped about 16,000 cases of tomatoes into Idaho last year," and there scarcely could be 16.000 cans loft at this time when wo are on tho verge of another packing season. Ab solutely no complaints against the tomatocB were made outride the city of Boise While I have not read tho article from Boloe, I can say posi tively that Commissioner Wallls has condemned none of our tomatoes and none will be shipped back to the fac tory to be destroyed " oo SULZER CASE END IS NEAR Albany, N V Aug 17 -Tomorrow is likely to mark a crucial point in the dual governorship dispute involv ing William Sulzer and Martin H. Glynn. Sunday passed without any warlike demonstration. Mr Glvnn tonight began an Inquiry Into the escape of Harry K. Thaw from Matteawan He sent tho fol lowing telegram to Superintendent of Prisons John B Riley and to Dr. R F. C Kelb, superintendent at Mattea wan ' Please telegraph me Immediately all details you have about the escape from Matteawan state hospital of Harry K. Thaw "MARTIN H. GLYNN. "Acting Governor." Sulzer announced that he would or der an investigation and direct a full report from the state prisons depart ment. one of the few that still rec ognlze Sulzer as governor. Deputy Attorney General Parsons says that If Thaw has escaped Into another state he cannot be brought back unless It can bo established that he has committed some crime other than that for which he has been tried. A decided test of Sulzer's strength Is expected to come if he attempts to attend the meeting of the board of trustees on public buildings tomorrow In the capacity of governor He says that he will do so. It was learned definitely tonight that the Frewley committee has de- tormlnoH frn mnlro fhrt rnnfnwolnn ami Illness of Mrs. William Sulzer the sub ject of a rigid Investigation The purpose Is to shatter, If possible, tho Sulzer defense which will be based chiefly on Mrs Sulzer's statement that she and not her husband signed his name to the checks turned up In the BoyerGrlswold account. The first step will be the issuance of a Jane Doe subpoena for the nurse who up to Friday attended Mrs. Sul xer. Information has come to the agents of the committee In Albany that this nurBe was discharged by the governor for "talking too much." The committee believes that "talking too much" consisted of tolling stories of Mrs Sulzer's condition which were not to the liking of the governor. Assembly Leader Aaron J. Levy hat already been quoted as saying "Not only Is this (Mrs Sulzer's) confession a Bham, but the pretended Illness of Mrs. Sulzer is a sham of which Sulzer Is the chief perpetrator." The Idea of attacking the confession of Mrs Sulzer has been in the minds of the committeemen since the night when the news that it had been made was broken to the assembly by Mi nority Leader Hinman Frawley has publicly announced that he Is loath to call Mrs. Sulzer and that he did not believe she should bo summoned before the committee even if she were perfectly well But the leaders In the fight on Gov ernor Sulzer have avowed their dis belief in the confession and their de sire to show before the trial that Mrs. Sulzer Is merely trying to shield hsr husband. When they were told that the nurse who first attended Mrs Sulzer had been discharged they decided that some of the facts they desired to ob tain from Mrs Sulaer could be ob tained from tho woman who was wl'h her In her Illness "If the committee can prove that Mrs. Sulzer has not been really ill, the members feel that they will at least have made a start In the direc tion of determining that the whole dc- fpnHP lf a sham They point out that the nerrou3 breakdown of Mrs. Sulzer is ascribed by her husband to her belief that 6he had ruined his career. If she haB had no nervous breakdown they Bay that tho whole story of the confession la blown up. nn Constantinople, Aug 17. Consider able alarm was caused here by the sudden departure Saturday night of two Russian warships, which were stationed at Beyukdore on the Bos phorus Their destination is thought to be Sevastopol The Russian em bassador here ordered the ships to sail and added that the admiral would receive further Instruction! whne he was on the high seas. It Is generally believed here the departure of the ships has reference to the question of the evacuation of Adrianople, and that it Is the first move of the powers to show Turkey that she must accede to their demands.
