THE JURY IS DISCHARGED, Deliberated 47 Honrs vrlfhnur rtcncli Ing AKrreinrnt Tliim Ilnek In the Tombs to Avtnlt .Second Trial .leroine Will Oppose Any Application for Unit. New York, April 12. Hopelessly divided seven for a verdict of guilty In the first degree and five for ncqulttal on tho ground of Insanity, the Jury, which since the 23rd of last January had been trying Hurry K. Thaw, icpnrted lo-dny after forty-seven hours und eight minutes of dellberaUon, that It could not possibly agree upon a verdict. The twelve men were promptly discharged by Justice ri'zgerald. who declared that he too, he. lleved tlielr tnsk hopeless. Thaw was re manded to the Tombs without ball to await a second trial on the charge of having murdered Stanford White, tho noted architect. When this nw trial would take place no ono conn-cted with the case could express an opinion to-night. District At tnrnev Jerome declared that there were manv other persons accused ot homicide awaiting trial and that Thaw would have to take bis turn with the rest. As to a possible change of venue, both the district attorn' y and counsel for Thaw declared they would make no such move. Thaw's attorneys will confer lo-mnrtow with tho prisoner to decide upon their next step. They may mak an early ap pllcatlch for ball. Mr. Jerome told ho would strenuously oppose such applica tion. He added the belief t lm t ns seven of the Jurors voted for "guilty" his op position would probably be successful. In that event Thaw has another long sum mer before him In the city prison for his case on the already crowded criminal calendar cannot pnsslb'y be 1 cached un til some time next fall. THK CLOSING SCICNKS. The scenes attending the announce ment bv the jury of Its Inability to ngrte upon any sort of verdict we-e robbed of any Iheatrlcallsm by the general belief that after their pro tracted discussion nnd the repoits of a wide division of sentiment, the Jur ors could make no other report than one of disagreement. Thnw. surrounded by the members of his family his devoted aged moth er, his pale young wife, his titled sis ter, the Countess of Yarmouth, his sis ter, Mrs. (joorge Carnegie, nnd his brothers Edward and Josinh Thnw, received the news in absolute silence. When it became known that tho Jury was about to rr.ftko t:i report nnd that the caso would bo disposed of. Thaw called his wife to a seat by his sltlo and sat with his right arm thrown about her until he w;as commanded to stand and face the juVor. Smiling nnd con lldent when he entered the court room, Thaw sank limply Into his chair when foreman Denting R Smith, In response to a question by Clerk I'enny an to whether n verdict had been agreed upon, said: "We have not." His mother, her features hidden be hind a thick black veil, sat stolid nnd motionless, in in health of lute. sw had felt severely the strain nnd stress of the long hours of nnxlnus waiting His wlf-, by his side, gripped his hand tightly as the foreman spoke, and then when he sank down by her side, she tried to cheer him. ns best she could by saying that she believed he would now be admitted to ball and that a second Jury would surely set hi 'n free. The mother, the sisters and tho broth ers, pale nnd well nigh exhausted bv their tedious wrack!iitr wait for a ver dict, smiled wanly at Thaw as he was led away again 10 the Tombs They wero permitted to speak with him for a few moments to bid him good cheer, before ho ciossod the "Hrldgo of Sltrbs" to the cell In tho prison which, until a few minutes before, ho had hoped thut he was about to quit forever. SMALL CROWD OUTSIDE. Outside the b.g square criminal courts building, only a few hundred persons wer0 gathered. Thousands had been thero earlier in the day, but police 1 enforce ments had arrived wMtfi Instructions to keep every one moving and this had soon tired the Idly curious Into a wllllngne.ss tn depart. Inside tho building In the galleiles overlooking the court and gathered along the corridors- wore groups of moro fortunate persons who had been able to make their way past the vigilant guards. Tho court room Itself was half empty. Only the newspaper men, the 'court W im I''" The only form of food made - from wheat that is all nutri ment is the eoda cracker, and yet the only soda cracker of which this is really true is Uneeda Biscuit The The The The In a only only only only NATIONAL BISCUIT COMPANY attaches nnd a .cw favored friends, were allowed to enter 'o hear the verdict. Jus tice Kltzgeralu Tared a demonstration or some sort should the general publlo be admitted and ' 0 Issued strict orders against this. It was 4.2.i f. loik when tho Jury filed Into the court room. The afternoon was dark and rainy and the electric lights had been gluwli g for nn hour or mote. Harry Thaw had been waiting for a sum mons to face the Jurors ever since shortly after ten o'clock this morning. He felt that to-day would Iiri?,g a crisis and that , either a verdict would b reached or Jus tice I ltzgeruld would discharge the jurors from any fuither eonslrlcratidn of mis case. Ains v.v tne general belief and the only roma,rl;.i!le feature of the case was the dogged way In which the Jurors tuck to their w..rk and declined to nsk to bn excused J istlcci Kltr.gcr.ild had de termined to lei them wrestle with th ctuestlon until cv called for a respite. This appeal came at 4:1J o'clock and then followed a hunt for counsel hoUt District Attorney Jerome and the attorney.-; for the defendant having temporarily left the building. When ' arrhed Justice Kit 7.- ! gcrald notified tl.nn of the Jury's com- munlcatlon that 1 disagreement seemed inevitable. Every one connected with tho case .seemed wiling to accept tho situa tion as offering no hope, and then fol lowed the brief ciurt room proceedings at which the disagreement was publicly announced, the jury dismissed nnd the prisoner remanded. Knterlng the court room at 4:2f, p. m., the Jury was free eight minutes later. STATBMKNT I!Y THAW. Thaw when he hid returned to The Tombs, prepared and issued the follow In?

"Hut I couid hardly expect anjtlilnj el-e In view of ' ie events of the past fow days." he .d.led Eat Her in the day Thaw had issued an other statement in which he said Jie had des-rod that his fate seliould be Judged upon th" "written" laws of the Stato of New York. He declared that ho be lieved that the ev dr nro adduced had can vlneed even District Atnrney Jerome of his Innocence under th,, strict letter of the law'. Attorney Delphln M.

J. O. MIDDLEBROOK & SONS, affairs, STORY OK TITR JURORS' DKLH1KRA TIONS. The story of the proceedings in the jury room as thoy were learned to night far outranked In Interest the brief court proceedings which brought the famous trial to a close. It turned out thut the Jury considered ovorytMng connected with tho case except the "unwritten law." ltaslng their Judg ment entirely on the evidence they vo te, cither for or against murder In the ptst degree when they cast their Hi st ballots. The first vote was eight 1 to four In favor of conviction. Then the twelve tried to reach unanimity upon .1 verdict of manslaughter In tho first degree, the maximum punishment for which Is twenty years' Imprison ment. The men In favor of arqultinl largely oil tho ground of Insnnltv. It 1. said, would not change their ballots and In tho end won over one of the right who had favored conviction. During the nearly forty-eight hours of deliberation only tight ballots wero cast. The Jury spent the two night sessions dozing In their chairs. The ' entire story of what happened in the ' Jury room from the time tho twelve men retired at 5:17 o'clock on Wed nesday nfternoon until they finally de cided this afternoon that tho prospects of n verdict wero loo remote to war rant longer discussion of the facta was told by one of the Jurors, Henry C. Har ney, No. a manufacturer of pianos. The filial ballot was taken Just before the Jury reported Its disagreement In court was as follows: THR FINAL HALI.OT. For conviction of murder in tie fust degree; Messrs. Demlnt It. Smith, fore man; (leorge I'faff, No. 2; Charles H. Kecke, No. 3; Harry C. I3rearley, No 0; Charles D. Newton, No. S; Joseph I!. Ilolton, No. 31, nnd IJern.ird Geratman, No. 12. For acquittal on the ground of In sanity: Messrs. Oscar A. Pink, No. 4: Henry C. Harney, No. 1"; Malcolm S. Kraser. No, 7; Wilbur K. Steele, No. 0, and John P. Dennee, No. 10. Ml1. Ilolton Is the Juror whoso wife died during the trial while the Jury was being kept under lock nnd key. Juror Harney said: "About ten minutes after we reached the jury room we took the first ballot and it lesulted In n vote of eight for conviction of murder In the first de gree and four for absolute ncqulttal. The men who voted for conviction wero Smith, foreman; I'fatf, Kecke, Drearly, Dennee, Ilolton, Newton and Gerstnian. The men who voted to set Thaw frco were IMnk, Harney, Kraser nnd Steeln. SLL'l'T Dl'ItlNG NIGHTS, "Thirty minutes elapsed befoic the sec ond ballot was taken and then tho votes remained unchanged. A third ballot was taken nt 6:4J p. m on AWdnesday, nnd . v , until. 1-u.llJl VM.-1T I-IM-IH Hi sleep, and no hallot was taken until 4:."i) o'clock the following (Thursday) nfter noon, This was iWvernl hours aftr tho Jury had appealed to the court for n re rending of the testimony given by eye I witnesses of the tragedy. The fourth bal- I lot marked one change In tho vote. Four ' of the Jurors still held out for an nc- j qulttal, but of the rest, Hernard Gerst- man, tho twelfth Juror, changed his vote from murder in the first degree! to that 1 of manslaughter In tho first degree ' About two hours later a fifth ballot was tnken and this showed a decided chango " t.l"'lpart "f J710 Jurrs "'ho v,n,rd for of the four Jurors who yoted for nn ac qulttal hnd not been altogether in vain for they succeeded In winning over to their side, Juror Ilennee, who up to that time had voted forVnnvlctlon. Tho rest of tho jurors, with tho exception of George Pfaff who had yoted for murder In tho tlrst degreo doclded that Thaw was only guilty of manslaughter in the first degree. Tho sixth ballot was taken at 0:25 o'clock Thurrelay night and remained un changed. After that there was no bnllot until 11:3) o'clock this afternoon when nil of the Jurors showed thnt they were of tho same mind ns before, excepting Hrearley, who In addition to voting for manslaughtor In tho first degree, added that tho defendant should bo recommend ed to tho mercy of tho court. I,AST HALLOT A SUHPUISR. "Tho eighth and last ballot was taken at 3:tf, o'clock thltufternooti and showed a most rematkable chango In tho entire Jury, The five men who had voted for nn absolute acquittal changed their bal lots to that of not guilty on the ground of Insanity, In tho hope of winning over their colleagues but tho remainder of the Jury, all of whom, with tho exceptton of Cleorgo rfaff, had voted for a verdict of manslaughter, mado up their minds that Thaw was guilty of murder In the llrst degreo and voted accordingly. This prac tically ended tho deliberation of the Jury nnd tho Jurors, arriving at the conclusion that they could never agree, naked to be discharged. "It will bo noticed that the only man who voted consistently according to his first opinion wns Goortra I'faff, Juror No. 2, who from tho very first ballot adhered to his bollof that Harry Thaw was guilty of murder In the flrst dogreo. Kqually as consistent In their belief to the con trary wore Jurors Pinlt, Harney, Kraser SPECIAL AGENTS, BURfLINGTON, VERMONT. decided that in their opinion Thaw was not guilty Theso four men, however, slightly changed the.r belief on the last ballot when In the. hope of winning over their companions they conceded acquittal of the defendant on the ground of In sanity. Tho sessions of the jury were not altogether pleasant and peaceful. MANY STOHMY AllGUMF.NTS. "There were many stormy arguments and nt one time charges of inconsist ency and breaking faith with the or ders of the court were made, hut nt no point of the deliberations did the foreman loe control of the situation. He successfully held the twelve; men in cheek and was tho tlrst to suggest when It was seen that there was no possibility of a verdict being reached that they report tho mutter to Justice Fitzgerald and leave the further dis position of tho case to his j-idgment." Juror Wilbur F. Steele said. "There was plenty of disparagement between the opinions expresst., i,y the Jurors. We considered insanity' In many phases, hut did not give the sub Ject of wronged womanhood any lengthy debate In fact, scarcely any It was touched upon nnd quickly drop ped. The question which was consid ered at unusual length was whether Thnw was Insane at the moment he shot Stanford White, and whether nt that moment he was responsible for his actions." NO "I'NWniTTKN I.AW." Juror Joseph Ii. Holton said: "Thero was no question of the "un written law" or of 'dementia Amerl ennn' In our deliberations. We con sidered the case from a purely legal standpoint. We were not swayed by emotion." "The Jury when considering the case took no stock In 'brain storms."' said Juror George H. Kecke. "ty u,i not pay an undue amount of attention to tho testimony of the alienists either Mr. Ke'ke said. Mr. Kecke said It was lifter Mr. Dennee had read some of Thaw's letters that tho latter decided that there was a reasonable doubt as to Thaw's sanity. Dennee then Joined the four men who stood for acqulttl on tlie ground of Insanity. A DEACON LIGHT IN JOUTtNALlSM. (Fiom the Manchester Journal.)
