PAGE TIlKivr:. THE FIRST INSIDE STORY OF EVELYN THAW'S SACRIFICE It Was Not for Love of Harry That She Twice Told the Story of Her Shame to the New York Court. SHE WISHED ONLY THAT JUSTICE BE DONE HIM. She Fears for Her Husband's Release His Condition Is Not Improved Divorce Ac tion Soon. New York, Feb. 21. Following close upon all the unsavory developments since the last trial and acquittal of Harry K. Thaw, there has been told today by friends of Kveln Thaw a new story, revealing, for the first time her hopes and the motives that have animated her in all her acts since Thaw's arrest. According to these friends, Evelyn Thaw martyred herstdf. Not for love of Harry Thaw. Not because she wanted to have-hira given back to her. Not because she wautcd a share of his wealth. She told what she did on the wit ness stand for the sake of justice, knowing as well as any of the lawyers and far better than some of them, what the result of her story meant to her and her future. She knew, according to the friends who today told the story in her behalf, that ff she told her story of her rela tions with Stanford White and its ef fect upon her husband and if she told of his actions it would mean a life of terror for her if Harry Thaw should he given his freedom. Her Future Against His. She was placed in the position of balancing her own future against his. One the one hand if she did not tell ihe story Thaw undoubtedly would have been found guilty. She would have been well taken care of. On the other hand, if she did toll the story and if Thaw were freed she Ivnew that her own life would be a horror. Thaw had often threatened her. She had witnessed his tantrums and outbreaks in prison. He had threatened her with bodily harm if he were given his freedom. During his life with her he had beat en her several times. She knew it would be impossible to live with him again. They had frequent quarrels while she was preparing to take the stand in his beiiair at. the second trial. Evelyn Thaw, her friends say. cast tip all these propositions and weiglfcd them, and (hen She let her love for justice, not her love for Thaw, triumph and she went on the stand. She told the story that in the first trial secured a disagreement and in the second trial secured an acquittal. 'I don't want Harry freed," she is credited with having said in her own circle of friends from which the story of the real reason for her testimony came. "I don't want him freed, be cause it would be dangerous. I only wanted to see justice done. I thought of all the chances. I thought of ev erything before I made up my mind to testify on the stand for him. Consulted Thaw's Lawyers. "I first asked the lawyers about ray story. None of them knew about it until I went to them. I asked them if that could bo told to the jury, and they said it could, and that it would free Harry. "I told the story, not because I want ed him freed, but because I wanted to see justice done. Could I let a man who had had as much reason for kill ing as he had be found guilty of the murder of a man like Stanford White. I wanted to have justice done. That is why I went on the witness stand. I suffered much when he was found not guilty, and I thought they were going to let him go free again. I was afraid . because I knew that it meant that he might attempt to carry out his threats against me. On the day the juty rendered its verdict of not gnilty on the ground of insanity Kvelyn Thaw for the first time displayed emotion. She arrived at the court room early that Satur day morning. She could not sit still. She told those who inquired that she feared a disagreement, but the fact is that she knew the verdict would pre cipitate a domestic tragedy. What it Meant to Evelyn. What Thaw's continued incarcera tion in the insane asylum at Mattoa wau may mean to Evelyn is not fcnown. It is probable, however, that ther will be a monetary settlement. It Is known that she has been advis ed to demand such a. settlement Thaw's condition does not improve very rapidly. His instability of mind Is marked as rmuh as it ever was ac cording to physicians who are watch ing him and the best that his relatives hope for is the opportunity to remove him to a private sanitarium. Evelyn, fearful of any possibilltv of hla release, probably will bring "suit for divorce soon with a demand for a large monetary consideration unless the latter-is aranged for -,r! The suit is regarded as a only a short time. TO CURE A COLD IN ONE DAY Tale LAXATIVE B110MO Quinine Tablets. Druggists refund money if it fails to cure. K. W.

There is nothing perhaps more enjoy able than the real imitation thut sometimes offered. John Max. who appears at the New Phillips this week in vaudeville, as a German comedian and wooden shoe dancer, is remired to be a real one and nor an imitation.

In last week's issue of the Liberty Herald, published by Ctarlas Stivers, on of the candidates for congress, is ,'r vigorous protest against the congres isional convention beinjr he'd after the mate convention. Mr. Stivers say, I slioald bt all ninn ha htf h.for. tt.i - if it a n u ;, actly as it was given in the metropo lis. Mr. Miller will present the entire original production and a superb com pany of capable arti.sts. "The Great Divide'' was written by William Vaughn Moody, the distinguished Am erican poet and professor of Knelish literature. In this play Mr. Moody put blank verse and rhyme behind liim, j writing in unctions, vigorous prose, j proving himself as much a master of direct human discourse as of fanciful utterance in dactyls and spondees. Notwithstanding that "The Great Di-1 vide'' is prose, a true poet's imagin- j ation and feeling is perceptible jn its conception and treatment. Repertoire at the Gennett. Patrons of the Gennett tire prom ised five nights of splendid plays and specialties, beginning tonight. The Hutton-Bailey company is the attrac tion and comes here highly recom mended. The Sidney, o., News says of it: The Hutton-Bailey comrjany lost no time last night in proving themselves easily and by far the best popular priced company of the season. Their production of "A Russian Nihilist" was faultless in every way lipintr o-pil played by a company of superior tal ent, beautifully staged and costumed, and presenting a powerful story of in tense interest which held the full sym pathy of the audience from first to last. The humorous parts of the play were more than good and balanced perfectly with the dramatic part of' the production. It would be hard to imagine a better and more finished performance than that given last night by the Hutton-Bailey company. They have certainly made good and deserve success wherever they go." The company will open its engage ment Monday night at the Gennett with a presentation of "A Russian Nihilist." with special scenery and costumes throughout.

CLERK AT THE WESTCOTT MADE ACTRESSES UNTIE PURSE STRINGS BEFORE THEY BOARD ED TRAIN FOR PIQUA, OHIO. Clerk Mathew Balfour of the West cott hotel is the hero of an exciting sketch of romantic adventure. The other members of the cast are three chorus girls of the late "Girl From Broadway" production. The plot of the sketch is simple but highly melo dramatic. Summed up in a few words is as follows: The three women try to violate the state anti-board beating law. Mr. Balfour comes to the res cue of his employer and holds the fu gative chorus ladies up just as they are about, to hoard an east, bound Pan handle train. "Pay your board bills or go to jail," he demands (gallery applauds and orchestra plays Eliza-Crossing-The-Ice music.) "Foiled agin" hiss the three villainesses as they un- lock the padlocks on thir purses and produce the necessary (tremendous applause from pit to gallery.) After the performance Saturday night "The Girl From Broadway" com pany came to an inexcusedly long de layed end. The three chorus women who appear in our sketch went im- mediately to tne westcott not.ei, se cured their somewhat abrevlated bag gage and smuggled it downstairs. This baggage they passed to three boys who had been engaged to make a wild dasli with the suit cases to the Panhandle station. The women then carelessly sauntered out of the hotel and went directly to the station. Clerk Balfour became suspicious of their actions and followed them. He met thorn at the station just as they were about to beard a train for Piqua, O. He demanded that they settle for their board bills. "What will you do if we refuse to pay?" they asked him. turn you over to mat otneer, re "A 1 1'" oaiiuur ;i? in.- (loiuieu iu ra u ui . ; : i ii..if . . . l . -. . . : . . - i . . , man l-iiiue. nnoui any more qrgu- ment the fugatives made a settlement.

New York, Feb. 21 A Washington dispatch says: A plan for the return trip of that portion of the battle ship uect which is to be brought back to the Atlantic station' is now being worked out by the General board, with the advice of the president and Secretary Metcalf. It now appears unlikely that the in vitation of Governor General Deakin. ; of Australia, for the fleet to visit bis country, will be accepted. Neither will anticipated invitations from Japan and the powers of Europe be accepted, if one country should be visited, an in vitation from any other could not be easily declined, for fear of giving of-' fense.

The fleet will remain in Manila bay for possibly eight or ten weeks, a month or so of its time being devoted to target practice. From Manila the fleet will proceed toward Aden, possibly calling at Co lombo for coal. The next step after Aden will be at Gibraltar. Rumors in diplomatic circles indicate that several squadrous. and possibly fleets, under European flags will be at Gibraltar or near by when the Ameri- can fleet calls, and possibly officials from Great Britain.
