NEW YORK, April 12. Hopelessly divided seven for :i verdict of, guilty f murdor in the first degree and five tor acquittal on the ground of insanity the jury which has since January 23 iioen trying Thaw, after forty-eight '.ours and eight minutes of delibera tion, reported today that it conld not lissildy agree on a vordiet. Tho twolve men were promptly discharged l,y Jus-iit-e Fitzgorald, who declared that he, on, believed their task was hopeless. I'haw was remanded t( the Tombs with lit bail to await a second trial on the . Iinrge of having slain Stanford White. Doubt as to Now Trial Whoa the new trial will bo, no one .iimected with the ease would tonight x press an opinion, .lorome declared 'here wore many other persons accused t homicide awaiting trials and Thaw would have to take his turn with the '.st. Ah to a possible chango of vonue, ixith the district attorney and counsel !r Thaw declared they would make no Mirh move. Thaw's attorneys will have i conference tomorrow with the, pris .nor to decido on the next step. Thoy nay make an early application for bail, leromo said lie would strenuously op-,-.,0 it. lie added his belief that as .'en jurors had voted for "guilty," us opposition probably would bo sue- cssful. In that event, Thaw has an it her long summer before him in the ity prison, for his case on the crowded nniinnl calendar cannot possibly be cached until some time next fall. The -enes attending the announcement by the jury of its inability to agree on a ordict were robbed of any theatrical-i-in by the general opinion that after 'he long deliberation the jurors conld make no other report han one of dis- grcement. Thaw's Smiles Fade Away Thaw, surrounded by monitors of his family, received the nows in absolute -ileuce. When it became known that Mie jury was ablo to make its report, I haw called his wife to a seat beside nun and sat with his right arm thrown i round her until he was ordorcd to stand .nd face the jurors. Smiling and con intent as ho entered the courtroom, he -.ink into a chair when Foreman Dcm ing B. Smith, in response to tho ques tion by the clerk as to whether a ver lot had been agreed on, said "We nave not." The mother, her icatures nulden behind a dense veil of black, -.it stolid and motionless. In ill health .f late, she felt severely thejUrain and -tress of the long hours of anxious wait ing. Tho wife gripped her husband's nand tightly as the jury foreman spoko, iit-ii when ho sank down by her side l- tried to cheer him as best she could by saying she believed ho would now '.- admitted to bail and that the sec ml jury Would surely sot him free. His mother, sister.-, and brother, palo nid well nigh exhausted by their tcdi- u-4, nerve-racking wait for the verdict, wre permitted to speak with Thaw '.r a few moments, to bid him be of ;...id cheer, before he crossed the bridge ol Sighs" to the cell which nt il a few moments before he hai '..ed that he was about to quit for- wr Crowds Kept Moving Outside the criminal courts building nly a few hundred persons had gath- ifil. Thousands had been thoro earlier in the dav. but iiolicc roinforcoments .id arrived with instructiops to keep wryone moving, and this soon tired tne lie curious into a willingness to depart. I lie courtroom itself was half empty, nly newspaper men, court attaches nd" a few favored friends bolng nl- wed to enter to hear the verdict. Jus ! Fitzgerald feardo a demonstration tumid tho general public bo admitted nd gave strict orders against this. Tt wis 1:25 when tho jury filed into the "iirtroom. Thaw had been waiting for ii- summons ever since 10 o'clock this Horning. Ho felt that today would Ting tho crisis, that a verdict would reached or that Fitzgorald would iicharge the jurors from further con ideration of the case. This was tho -,-neral beliof. Justice Fitzgerald had termined to let the jurors fight it out mong themselves until they made a II for assistance. This plea came at 1") and then followed a hunt for conn- 1, both Jerome and attorneys for tho "fense having temporarily loft tho milding. When thoy arrived Fitzger 'Id notified thorn of tho jury's commu tation and that a disagreement seem- I inevitable. Everyono connected with tie caso seemed to accept tho situation offering no hope; then followed, the iiief courtroom proceedings at which he disagreement was publicly announc 'I : tho jury was dismissed and tho pris ner remanded. . Thaw Makes Statement The jury was free eight minutes later. Thaw when ho had returned to tho I nmbs gave out tho following state nent: "I believe every man in tho jury possessing average intelligence, except W ing possibly Mr. Bolton, comprohendod me weignt ol tlio evidence and bal anced it for nn acquittal. All my fam ily bid mo good-bye with courage. I trust wo may all keep well." To his attorneys Thaw said ho was deeply disappointed. "But I could hardly express anything else in viow of the events of the last few davs," he added. Early in tho dav Thaw had lmvoii out another statoment in which ho said ho desired that his fate should bo judg on "tho written laws of tho state of Now York." Ho declared that ho bo lioved tho evidence adduced had con vinced even Joromo of his innocence under tho strict lottor of tho law. Delmas was not iu court today. Judge Criticized Clifford W. Hartridge, the attorney of record nnd a warm personal friend of Thaw, gavo tho following statemont to tho Associated Press: "Thaw has already expressed himself as desirous of a trial under nnd in ac cord with the laws of Now York. I can add nothing to thnt except that I entirely agree with him and hopo we shall have a now trial speedily and thnt tho next time it will not boneces aary for tho presiding judge to charge the jury that we are living in a civilized community." It was said that Mr. O'lioilly would have a leading part in the future con duct of tho affairs of Thaw. How Jury Doliboratcd The story of the proceedings in the jury room, as learned tonight, far out ranked in interest tho brief court pro ceeding which brought the famous trial to its dose. It developed that the jury had considered everything connected with tho case except the "unwritten law," and passing judgment entirely on evidence thoy voted cither for or against murder iu the first degree when thoy east tho first ballot. Tho first vote was 8 to 4 in favor of conviction. Then the jury tried to reach a common ground on u verdict of manslaughter in the first degroe, tho ,puuishmont for which ranges to a maximum of twenty years imprisonment. The men in favor of acquittal largely on the ground of insanity, it is reported, would not chango their verdict nnd in tho end won over to their sido ono who had favored conviction. Eight Ballots Taken During tho forty-eight hours deliber ation only eight ballots were cast. The jury spent the two night sessions dozing in their chairs. Tho ontiro story of what happened in tho jury room is told by one of tho jurors, Henry C. Harney. The final ballot was taken just boforc the jury reached the disagreement in a vote which was as follows: For con viction of murdor in the first degree: Doming B. Smith, foreman; George II. Pfnff, Charles II. Feckc, Harry C. Brcar loy, Charles D. Newton, Joseph S. Bol ton, Bernard G. Gerstman. For acquit tal on grounds of insanity: Oscar A. Pink, Henry C. llnrney, Malcolm S. Frazer, Wilbur F. Steele, John S. Den ne. Harney said: "About ton minutes after we reached tho jury room we took tho first ballot. "Thirty minutes elapsed before the second ballot was taken, wehn tho vote remained unchanged. No Chango on Third "Tho third ballot was taken at .0:45 and there was no change. There was considerable discussion among tho men but most of the night hours were spent in sleop and no ballot was taken until 1:30 the following (Thursday) after noon. This was several hours after the jury had appealed for a reading of the testimony given byoyewitnesses of the tragedy." "The fourth ballot marked one change. Gerstman, tho twelfth juror, changed his vote from murder in the first degree to manslaughter in the first degree. "About two hours later a fifth ballot was taken and this showed a decided change on tho part of jurors who had voted for conviction.' Tho four jurors whothad voted for acquittal succeeded iu winning over Denne. "The sixth ballot was taken at 2:15 Thursday night and remained un changed. After that there was no bal lot until 12:20 this afternoon, when all the jurors showed that they were of the same mind excepting Brenrley, who in addition to voting for manslaughter iu the first degree, added that the de fendant should be recommended to ,the mercy of tho court. Eighth and Last "The eighth and last ballot was ta ken at 15:45 this afternoon and showed a most remnrkablo change in tho entire jury, rno nvo men who vuioti iur u solute acquittal changed their ballots to that of not guilty on tho ground of in sanity, in tho hopo of winning over their colleagues, but the romninder of the jury, with tho exception of George II. Pfnff, had voted for a verdict of man slaughter, made up their minds that Thaw was guilty of murder in tho first degrco and voted accordingly. This practically ended tho deliberations of tho jury. Arriving at tho conclusion that thoy could never agree, they asked to bo discharged. "It will bo noticed that tho only men who voted consistently according to his first opinion was George Pfaff, who from the first ballot adhered to his be lief that Thaw was guilty of murder in the first degree. "The sessions were not altogether pleasant. There were many arguments and at one timo charges of inconsist ency and breaking faith with tho or dcrs of tho court were made, but at no point of the deliberations did tho foro mnn lose control of tho situation." Other Jurors Talk Wilbur F. Steelo said: "Thero was much disagreement bo tweon opinions expressed by tho jurors. Wo considored insanity in many phases, but did not givo tho subject of wronged womanhood any length in tho debate; in fact, scarcely any. It was touched upon nnd quickly dropped. Tho quostion which was considered at unusual longth was whether Thaw was insano at tho BE FIGHTING I FRANK J. HENEY The Champion Graft Walloper Gives Strenuous Advice to Students of Berkeley, HENEY WAS ONCE FIRED FROM THE SAME SCHOOL And for Fighting Noted Pros ecutor Says Labor Unions Not to Blame for Conditions in San Francisco, By Associated Press. BERKELEY, Cal., April 12. Francis J. Heney addressed two thousand stu donts nncU prominent citizens of Aln meda county in tho Harmon gymnasium of the Univorsity of California at uoon today. He exhorted tho university men to bo fighting men, to fight from the tiine they leavo tho university to the time they lie down to die, the great battle for right against wrong. He said he was "fired out" of the university at Berkeley twenty-eight years ago by the faculty and he was sorry to say" fired for fighting." The strange sequel to that affair to htm was tho fart that he was now called back to the university by invitation of the president to ad dress the students becnuso of tho- repu tation ho had gained as a fighting mail. Is Not Fighting Eucf "We are fighting men Jn the ordin ary sense of tho word at the prosont time. What we fight for are principles. If I thought we were fighting to put men in jail it would bo a waste of time I am not fighting Abraham Ruef, but I am fighting tho conditions under which he operated. "Whon you hear that all the trouble in San Francisco has been due to labor unions you can put thnt statement down to ignorance. "It can safely bo antd that in San Francisco at tho present time thero are but 4,000 pcopo who are actually pos sessed of knowledge of what is going on behind tho scenes. "Tho troublo with San Francisco six years ago was that after tho merchants had been engaged in n controversy the laborers turned down Henry Crocker and voted for Eugene E. Schmitzv They could hardly bo blamed for having done that, but it was then that Ruef saw his opportunity to step in and become a political dictator. But it was the cor porations that really elected Schmitz." moment he killed White, nnd whether ho was responsible for his actions." Juror Bolton said: -, "There was no question of unwrit ten law or 'dementia Americana' in our deliberations. Wo considered the case from a purely legal standpoint. We were not swayed by emotion." Criticizes Delmas Dan O'Reilly of Thaw's counsel said tonight: "I confess I am disappointed. I ex pected an acquittnl. Perhaps Delmns made a mistake in using the terra 'de montia Americana.' He mnde an hon est effort and it might have been a mistako of judgment." Attorncv Olcnson said: "The disagrement was disappointing, of course. Tt was unfortunate, tho in troduction of the 'unwritten law,' characterized as 'dementia Americana.' If instead of this counsel had dwelt upon the statutory insanity of Thaw, which was plainly proved, Thaw might have been acquitted." "' Evelyn Skeptical Mis. Evelyn Thaw said: " can't understand it. I don't see why they could not come to some kind of an agreement." Tho reporter said to Mrs. Thaw: "Tho jury stood 7 to 5 for convic tion." ' "I don't bcliovo it," sho cried em phatically; "they ought to have acquit ted him on evidonco. " Justice Fitzgorald ordered an ad journment until Monday, April 29. Jer ome later said tho adjournment had nothing to do with tho Thaw case. The district attorney stated that he con sidered it would bo his duty to put Thaw ou trial again. "Thero are thirty-four homicide cases in 1113' office," he said, "and fourteen or fifteen murderers in tho Tombs who must all have their day in court. Thaw's case must take its turn." Delmas Denies Report Asked tonight about tho report that Hartridge, Gleason, Peabody and him self had retired from tho caso, leaving Daniol O'Reilly as counsel, Delmas re plied: "As to that, I have not withdrawn from tho caso and have no reason to believe that either Hartridge, Gleason or Peabody have." As to the disagreement of the jury, ho snid: "I know no more about tho disagree ment than tho general public knows nnd it is too early to discuss plans for tho future." Concerning Gleason 's criticism on his "domentia Americana" remarks, Del mas would only say: "I have no wish to comment on theso remarks." ENGLISH LAWYERS IN CRITICISM OF METHODS LONDON, April 12. Interest in the trial of Thaw for tho murder of Stan ford White, which at first was intonso hero", lagged during the latter stages of proceedings. The final stages, howovor, raised curiosity here to tho fevor point to learn what the outcomo of tho strange caso would be. Within a fow minutes of the receipt of a cable an nouueing that tho jury was discharged tho streets of London, in spite of tho lateness of tho hour, echoed with tho shouts of newsboys. Newspapers were bought eagerly and pcoplo everywhere discussed with unusual volubility tho likelihood of a fresh trial. Tho chief criticism heard turned upon- the com parative leniency of American opinion toward homicides and what Englishmen call lack of dignity and method in tho proceedings of the courts. It has boon tho boast of Englishmen that hanging invariably follows a kill ing here. English barristers had almost given"' up the nttompt. to understand tho procedure of tho court. In the first place, it was tho length of time bo twoen tho arrest and tho trial. In Eng land, in a similar caso for instanco, that of Raynor for tho killing of Whitely trial would almost invariably occur within a month or two of tho crime ,and would be forgotten bofore tho man would be arraigned in Amer ica. Tho greatest contrast noted by the English lawyers was tho selecting of jurors, a work which occupies so much time in America and so short a timo here. , The News iu Pittsburg PITTSBURG, Pa., April 12.

SETTLEMENT 1 SIGHT IN BESBEE Refusal df Mechanics to Walk Out Taken as Long Stride Toward End of the Strike. NO DISTURBANCE YET, NONE IS EXPECTED Action of Mechanics Cause Some of Men to Return to Work Resolutions Which Were Passed at the Meeting, Special to the Silver Belt. BISBEE, Ariz., April 12. It is ap parent in the strike situation that a long step toward a speedy settlement of tho present difficulty was taken when tho mechanics employed by the mining companies in the Warren district de cided last night not to walk out in sym pathy with the miners belonging to the Western Federation. The number of men who have quit work during the three days of the strike and have drawn their pay is 564, dis tributed among the following compan ies: Copper Queen, 328; Calumet & Arizona, 92; Superior & Pittsburg, 80; Shattuck & Arizona, 44; Denn-Arizona, 20. Probably as many men arejaying off, who have not drawn their pay, wait ing to see how tho present agitation will terminate. Some of these men returned to work today as the result of tho action of tho mechanics last night. The mines are working today with about 70 per cent of the usual force. As yet thero has been no trouble of any sort and none is expected. The Mechanics Meeting An attempt was mado by a small party of mechanics who had walked out when the strike was called and a number of union sympathizers to con trol tho meeting of the mechanics. The meeting ws held at Tammany Hall on Main street To prevent the intrusion those who called tho meeting forced an adjournment and with the assistance of officers the hall was cleared. The Fed eration sympathizers and strikers then went to the skating rink, where a meet ing was held and the mechanics re turned to Tammany Hall, where the meeting was resumed, with officers sta tioned at the door. There were present at the meeting 127 men, including noist ing engineers, firemen, pumpmen and, blacksmiths, and resolutions refusing to walk out and declaring their satisfac tion with conditions were carried with out a dissenting vote. The following are tho resolutions: The Resolutions "We, a committee appointed by the mechanical forces of tho mines operat ing in the Warren district, adopt the following resolutions in rogard to a strike of a part of the miners of this district: "Resolved, That whereas the present disturbance has been caused by a very small minority of the workingmen in this camp, and that, whereas we have, had no voice in tho matter, wo will no.t. take part in any movement to .sey.er tho relations we have maintained with the companies in the past. "Resolved, That while many of our old companions in work are now leav ing a sometimes lifelong friendship, wo extend them our deep sympathyihodi fled by the difference of tho opinions that aro causing this break. "Resolved, That we ask the com panies concerned to reinstate the men of our departments who have been mis led by falso statements and not remem bering tho last few days, but looking back to tho years of faithful labor given in tho past.
