For four hours S;TTday afternoon a larce steam yacht was anchored op poito Uoton point, about half a mile off shore. She steamed east late in the afternoon. It is not a common thine: for yachts to anchor at that point, and for this reason the incident attracted attention. No confirmation could bo had of reports that passen gers hail been takt n aboard from Roton poir.t. No confirmation of reports that Harry K.

Thaw, the slayer of Stanford White, escaped from the hospital for the criminal insane here at 7:43 Sun day mornintr. A dart for liberty through an open cate, a dash into ihe open door of a powerful automobile that stood quivering outside, and a f.icht like a rocket for the Connecticut state line, .'JO miles away, aocomplish cd his escape. Sunday night he was still at large and tiie hospital authorities felt cer tain lie was outside the state. Once beyond its boundaries. Thaw is free. (July months, perhaps years, of liti gation can bring him back to Mat teawan and then only in one event -that he be adjudged insare in tiie state to which he has lied. Five confederates manned the car in which Thaw escaped and a big blaek limousine which trailed it past, tiie asylum gate. The police have their descriptions and the names un der which they registered at a local hotel Friday night and are seeking them. Off to I Europe. The. hospital authorities believe Thaw has iled to the shore of Fong Island sound and boarded a yacnt waiting with steam up to rush him to Europe. A reward of $500 for Thaw's ap prehension has been offered by Dr. K. F. C. Kieb, superintendent of the asy lum. Howard H. Harnum, tho attend ant at tiie gate, past whom Thaw Hashed in his break for freedom, is under arrest and. other arrests are ex pected to follow in the rigid investi gation begun by Dr. Kieb. The shades were drawn in the dor mitories and the inmates were getting their second sleep when Thaw left his room this morning. He was fully dressed. Tho milk man's cart was rumbling in the road outside as he v:j1W-i1 thrnnL'h the .stnrc room .and into the outer court yard of the asy- J lum grounds. F.arnum, sole attend ant at the road gate, was pacing back and forth when Thaw closed the store room door behind him, and apparently did not grasp the. signiiicance of Thaw's early rising. Long years of residence at the asy lum and repeated declarations by Thaw that he would never attempt to 1 obtain his freedom except by legal means, had established the madman's status as a 'trusty." There was little out of the ordinary in his appearance, even at so early an hour, in the court yard, and if Barnum saw him as to this no one save the hospital authorities, could say Sunday night and they refused to talk ho raided no question. Powerful Car Fsod. A six-cylinder touring car. black, and HO horsepower, followed by a limousine, also black, loafed lazily along the road, as the milkman drew j near the gate. Thaw, standjng a few feet away, apparently unconcerned, waited till F.arnum unlocked the gate! and swung it wide to let the milk man j enter. At the same moment the two t cars drew up on the further side of the road, opposite the gate and stood still, their engines throbbing. As ikirnum stepped aside for the milkman to drive inside the grounds, he heard the gravel crunch beneath Thaw's feet and, looking up. saw the madman Hash past him straight for one of the waiting cars. With a shout Barnum started in pursuit but a Hying b ap landed Thaw safe within the car. The great wheels were slowly turning before the keeper hao fairly readied the roadway. They were throwing up a cloud of dust before he had gone L.T. feet. Down the roadway the cars sped in a whirling cloud of dust that quick ly blotted them from sUht. For a moment Barnum shaded his eyes with his hand and watched them; then, with the first great blot on his career of 120 years as keeper. lie dashed madly back into the ground anil locked tho gate. Marvel at Shhm1. "Thaw's gone scaped!" he shout ed, bursting into Dr. Kieb's presence. And in a moment the hunt was on. The treat black car flashed like a thunderbolt through S'tormville, ten miles east of Matteawan. alone the road to the Connecticut line. Far'.y ri.-ers In the lattle hamlet saw three men and Thaw crouching low to escape the sweep of their rush through the air. They were going To miles an hour. They were ten minutes out of Matteawan. Stormville marvelled at their speed and watched them melt away in .the dust of the state road. The limousin. had been left behind. At the speed which the ldaek car traveleed through Stormville he should have reached the state line within half an hour. (iLYNN DKMANDS FIIOF.F. ALBANY. N. Y.. Aug. IS.

The famous engine, "General," wh.ch played such an important part in the civil war, has been sent to Chattanooga by the Nashville, Chat tanooga & st. Louis railway and given a prominent place in the union depot, where it will remain as a permanent monument to American ,alor. On the morning of April 1, lSfi2, Capt. V. A. Fuller lef: Atlanta in charge of the passenger train on the W. & A. railroad. When he reached Marietta a a arty of strangers, dress ed in citiitti clothes, boarded the train and pid their fares to different points. T?.ey claimed to be refugees from tho Yankee lines joining tiie Confederate army, but were disguised soldiers, volunteers front Sill's bri gade, Mitchell's corps, U. S. A., com manded by James J. Andrews. At Fig Shanty the train stopped for breakfast, and most of the passengers and train crew left the train. The passengers had taken their seats at the table, Capt. Fuller facing the train. He saw through the window some strangers get on the engine in an excited manner and start oft rapidly. He remarked to his engin eer, Jeff Cain, and Anthony Murphy, then foreman of the W. & A. shops, that "someone who has no right to do so has gone off with our train." All three arose and hurried out to the , house just as the engine passed out of sight. Capt. Fuller. Murphy and Cain com menced pursuit on foot. They soon secured a handcar, and in spite of the obstructions placed on the track by the raiders, made rapid progress. At Ftowah they found the engine "Yo nah," and the pursuit then was at such a rapid pace that serious damage to the railroad by the raiders was im possible. The "General" was abandoned by the raiders at a point about half way between Ringgold and Graysville, on account of lack of fuel and the close pursuit of Fuller and his party. When the fugitives abandoned the engine their leader said, "Fveryone take care of himself," and they left in squads. Four of them were run down in the fork of Chickamauga river at Grays vill and one was forcibly persuaded to tell who they were. Iter there was a trial by military court, and eight -of the number wen executed in Atlanta as spies, six were paroled at City Point, Ya., and eight escaped from prison at Atlanta. The object of the raid was to burn the bridges on the line of the Western A: Atlantic railroad and thus cut off the Confederate army from its base j of supplies. j The survivors of the Andrews' raid ers have erected a monument to their fal'en comrade.", and it stands today in the National cemetery at Chatta j noo-a. Two tablets have also been erected by the Nashville, Chattanooga j & St. Louis railway, one marking the spot at which the General was cap tured and the other where it was abandoned.
