HI arry Thaw Committed to the Asylum
For the Criminally Insane.
New York, Feb. 1.-Adjudged not
guilty of the murder of Stanford White
by reason of insanity at the time the
fatal shots were fired, Harry Kendall
Thaw was today held by the court to
be a dangerous lunatic, and was whirl
ed away to the State Hospital for the
Criminal Insane at Matteawan.
It was a quick transition from the
dingy little cell in the Tombs, which
had been the young man's home for
more than eighteen months, to the
white-bedded wards of the asylum
tucked away on the snow-coverei,
sloping banks of the Hudson river,
fifty miles above this city.
The verdict came after twenty-five
hours of waiting, and all connected
with the case abandoned all hope of
an agreement ever being reached in
this or any other trial. Very shortly
after the foreman's lips framed the
words "Not guilty, " with the accom
panying clause, Thaw, protesting he
was sane, was on his way to Mantea
The commitment papers to the
asylum read "until released by due
icourse of law."
At no time since his arrest on the
night of June 25, 1906, had young Thaw
ever held the thought that he would
see the inside of Sing Sing prison.
The first thrill at the words of ac
quittal brought Thaw to his feet in the
courtroom, and with that lack of grace
of action which always has characteiiz
ed his movements, he awkwardly,
almost haughtily, bowed his acknowl
edgements to the twelve jurymen as
they were discharged by the court.
A smile played around his pallid feat
ures, and there was every reason to
believe that he was entirely pleased
with the outcorie.
It was after he heard the words of
Justice Dowling committing him to
Matteawan on the ground that his re
lease, in the opinion of the court,
would endanger the public safety. .'.d
after the elation of the verdict had
died away, that Thaw rebelled.
He commanded his attorneys im
mediately to sue out a writ of habeas
The production of "No Mother

last Friday evening drew but a very

Into the heated atmosphere of mod
ern drama where machine-made plays
vie with each other for a few weeks
fame, "Sis in New York" comes as a
cooling breeze blown across wild mead
ows. There is no sense of effort in
the unfolding of the plot. There is
no extraordinary event struck off at
white heat. It is just a sweetly mov
ing tale told with rare humor, direct
ness and delicate touches of sentiment
and k'en strokes of character study.
The charm of the play lies not only in
its sweet and wholesome story, but in
its description of the Indiana charact

corpus to have his sanity tested before
he was sent away to the up-state in
stitution, where the insane of crimi
nal tendencies were confined. Mrs.
William Thaw from her hotel, where
she had received, over the telephone,
the news of the trial's end, joined in
the demand of her son.
Martin W. Littleton, whose conduct
of the case:as chief counsel for the de
fense, has won so much favorable com
ment, finally prevailed against the
wishes of the mother, believing it
would be better, for the present, to
obey the mandate of the court.
Justice Dowling, it is said, had been
consulted in the matter before he had
signed his order of commitment, and
informally had advised Thaw's counsel
against making an immediate contest.
The prisoner's consent was not won
until after a lively scene with his coun
sel and his wife, the latter pleading
with him for more than an hour to be
content for a time at least with what
fate had given him.
Under promise that some action
speedily would be taken looking to the
appointment of a committee to inquire
into his present sanity or for his trans
fer to a private institution where his
wife or his mother might reside with
him, he consented to go without fur
ther protest. On his way to Mattea
wan Thaw dictated the following
authorized statement to a representa
tive of the Associated press:
"I am perfectly sane now, but I
am going to Matteawan on the advice
of my counsel, who thought it unwise
to sue for a writ of habeas corpus at i
this time. Counsel will proceed in the
matter of my release. Just as soon as
they can get together the proofs they
will present that I am at present sane.
I am confident that my stay at Mat
teawan will be for a short period of
time only. "
Thaw was accompanied from the
Tombs Wo the Grand Central railway
station by his wife and Josiah Thaw,
his brother. Attorneys A. Russell
Peabody and Daniel O'Reilly went
with him to Matteawan.

thinking-thinking of the past, the

much in these last years, much mis
