Dr. Diefendorf attended the trial and testified at Thaw's trial that Thaw knew the nature and quality of his ! act when he killed White, and knew that It was wrong. Today he testified before the com mission that Thaw Is not now capable of rightly understanding his own posi tion. of appreciating the nature of the charge against him. or rationally ad vising his counsel. Says Thaw Has Delusions. Dr. Diefendorf said he thought the suggestions made by Thaw to his counsel for Attorney Delmas in sum ming up his address. Indicated a de lusional state of mind. He also said Thaw had delusions when the crime was committed. Attorney Hartrldge drew out that Thaw's delusions were similar to those lnd'cat'd la the letters which formed a part of District Attorney Jerome's hypothetical question at the trial. "On similar writings then, you reach the conclusion that at one time Thaw Is sane and at another insane?" asked Attorney Hartridge. Dr. Diefendorf said he would stand on bis answers.

J I HARRIMAN WILL NOT RETRACT PreparingAnotherStatemeflt Should President Come Back Again NEW YORK, April 3.—The publica tion of the Harriman-Webster and the Roosevelt-Sherman -Harriman corres pondence was widely discussed today in financial and political circles. The statement given out by Harri man was widely read. Harriman Is Kaid tod »y to be in consultation with friends presumably with a view of outlining a course should the presi dent make a rejoiner. Not the least Interesting of Harrl man's presentation, is his statement that he could not withdraw anything he said in his letter to Webster, In which he declared it was at the presi dent's solicitation that he raised $200, 000 for use In the campaign in New York In 1904, and that the president agreed. "If necessary," to appoint Depew ambassador to France. It was declared In banking circles that light could be shown on the question of campaign contributions In 1904. if the books of the national re publican committee were thrown open. Harry S. New of Indiana Is now act ing chairman of the committee. Harriman Had Political Ambitions. WASHINGTON, D. C., April 3.—The following statement was given out at the White House today: "The real reason for E. H. Harri man's Interest In the election of a state ticket In 1904, reference to which was made In communications which passed between him and the president, waa that he desired to advance his own ambitions. "It Is asserted that Harriman want ed tbe poeltion of senator now filled by Depew, and this was the reason why he was anxious to have him ap pointed as ambassador to Paris. "The inference from Harrlman's at titude was that If Depew could be in duced to go to Paris, Governor Hig gins was prepared to appoint Harri -I man to fill the vacancy." the j I I the I at I I I ! !
