II WAS MURDER
Five Other Jtlrora Wanted to
Acquit Thaw on Ground
of Insanity.
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

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? 'statement: ,
"l believe Iliad every man In the Jury
possessing aveiage intelligence, excepting
possibly Mr liolt .n, comprehend the
weight of evidence and balanced It for
acquittal. AH my family nld mo good bye
with courage. trust tU. V.) we may all
keep v. ell."
To his attorne - Thaw said he wis
deeply disappointed.
"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. Delmas of Cali
fornia, who conducted Thaw's cite in
court nnd who in making his summing up
addfess to the hiry appealed almost
directly to tne "unwritten law" or
"dementia Ame-lcana" a.s he tetmed it,
was not In court to-day when the Jury
made Its report and was discharged.

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:

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

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
