Until Another Trial Shall Have
Been Started, Following
Failure of Jury to Agrefc
on a Verdict in Celebrated
Aljrder Case Last Night.
It is Not Likely! hat the Court
Will Admit the Young Man
to Bail as it is Against all
Precedent in that State.
Thaw's Lawyers Squabble.
New Yoifc, April 13. The Tha.w at
torneys today are preparing ft demand
for their client's release on bail pending
a new trial, which will be made prob
ably next Monday. Thaw's family, is
ready to offer a bond in any sum, and,
although the demand is almost unprece
dented, it is argued that the amount of
the bond and the publicity given the
case will make it almost impossible for
the defendant to escape to any quarter
of the globe. The district attorney will
vigorously oppose the application, and
the indications are tha Thaw will have
to stay in the Tombs until October,
when the case is finally decided.
While the Thaw attorneys deny that
they have been ielea.-ed, it is said that
Mrs. William Thaw has determined on a
change, -and that she may go back to
the firm of Black, Olcott, Gruber and
Bonynge, who originally took charge of
Thaw's interests.
Now that the bitterness of discussion
in the jury room has worn off, the jury
3ias decided to dine together on April
20. According to a statement of juror
Steele, a .verdict of manslaughter in
the second degree might have been reach
ed as a comMomise, but for the trouble
in the jury room, when juror I'SaS, the
leader of the force favoring murder in
the first degree-attacked those who were
voting for acquittal with insinuating
charges. This ended all hopes of a com
promise. .
Announcement of Failure,
The scenes attending the announce
ment by the jury of its inability to agree
upon any sort of verdict were robbed
of any theatrieali-m by the general be
lief that after their long deliberation
and the report of a wide diversion of
sentiment, the jurors could make no
other report than one of disagreement.
-Thaw, surrounded by the inenilfets of
bis family the devoted, aged mother,
the pale young wife, the titled sister,
Countess of Yarmouth; Mrs. George Car
negie and Edward and Josiuh Thaw, the
brother received the news in absolute
silence. When it became known that
the. jury was about to make its report
and that the cise would be disposed of,
Thaw called his wife to a seat by his
side and at with his arm thrown about
Jier until he was commanded to stand
nd face the jurors. ,
ii Smiling and confident ns he entered
the court room, Thaw sank limply info
bis -. chair when foreman Denting B.
Smith, in response to a question by
clerk Benny as to whether a verdict had
teen agreed upon, said;
S "We have not."
The mother, her features hidden be
hind a dense veil of black, sat stolid and
wot ionics, hi ill health of late, tho
had felt severely the strain and stress
of the. long hours of anxious ; waiting.
The wife by her husband's side gripped
Lis hand tightly as the jury foreman
sHke, and then, when he Amk down
by her side, she tried, to cheer him as
best she could by saying that. she be
lieved he would now be admitted to bail,
and that a second jury would surely set
liim free.- "
The mother, the sisters and the broth
er?, pale- and well-nigh exhausted by
their long, nerve-racking wait for a ver
dict, smiled wanly at Thaw as ho was
led awny again to the Tombs. They
were permitted to speak with him foV
a few minutes to but him be of good
cheer, beforo he crossed the "bridge, of
sighs" to the cell in the prison which,
until a few minutes before, he had hoped
that ho was about to quit forever. Out
side the big square of the criminal
courts building, only a few hundred per
sons were gathered. Thousands had
been there earlier in the day, but police
reinforcements had arrived with instruc
tions to keep everyone moving, and this
liad soon tired the idly curious into a
willingness to depart. " , ,
Inside the building the galleries over
looking the court and gathered along
the. corridors were, groups of more for
tunate persons who had been able to
make their way past the vigilant police
guards. The court room itself was half
empty. Only the newspaper men, the
court attaches, and a few favored friends
were allowed to enter to hoar the ver
dict. Justice Fitzgerald feared a demon
stration of some sort should the general
publio be admitted, and he gave strict
orders against this. -
As the opposing forces were arrayed
r,n the final proposition, they stood seven
for a verdict 'of guilty of murder in the
first degree and live for acquittal on the
ground oi nisiinii.y, railing to get to-
- petlier ou tno compromise, the, juiors
reported lat evening, after being out
47 hours' and eight minutes, that thev
bad been unable to agree. They "Were
then promptly oiseiiarged bv Justice
Fit rgerow. who declare. l that lie, loo,
believed the task to ue Hopeless, - maw
was remanded to the Tombs without bail
to' await a second trial on the charge of
murdering Stanford -White.
Whim a new trinl would take place,
no one connected with the case fan ex
press an opinon. .District Attorney Je
roine declared that there were many
other persons accused of homicide await
ing trial, and Thaw Would have to take
hit turn with the rest. As to a possible
change of Venue, both the district at
torney and counsel for Thaw declared
they would make no such move.
Voting by the Jury.
Tlw first vote of the jury was eight
to four in favor of conviction. Then
the jury tried to reach a common ground
upon a verdict of manslaughter in the
first degree, the punishment for which
ranges io a maximum of twenty years'
imprisonment. 'The men iu favor of ac
quittal largely on the ground of insan
ity, it is Raid would not change their
ballots and in the end won over one
of the eight who favored conviction to
their side. ' ' ' '
In the course of nearly forty-eight
hourg of deliberation, only eight ballots
were east. The jury spent the two
night sessions dozing in their , chair.
The entire story of what transpired in
the jury room from the time the twelve
men retired at 5:17 o'clock on Wednes
day afternoon until they finally decided
yesterday afternoon that the prospects
of a verdict were too remote to warrant
longer discussion 'of the facta, was told
by one of the jurors, Henry C Harney,
no. 5, a manufacturer of pianos. The
final ballot, taken just before the jury
reported its disagreement in court, was
as follows:
For conviction of murder in the first
degree: Messrs. Doming B. Smith, fore
man; George Pfaff, no. 2; Diaries J I.
Fecke, no. 3, Harry O. Brearley, no. 6;
Charles D. Newton, no. 8; Joseph B.
Bolton, no. 11, and Bernard Gerstman,
no. 12.
For acquittal on the ground of in
sanity, Mers. Oscar A. Tink, no. 4;
Henry C. Harney, no. 5; Malcolm 8.
Fuawr, mo. 7; Wilbur F. Steele, no. 0,
and John S. Donnee, no. 10.
Mr. Bolton is the juror whose wife
died during the trial while the jury was
being kept under lock and key.
Tbaw la. Still Hopeful.
Harry Thaw today expressed himself
as being hopeful of being admitted to
bail goon. Of the outcome of another
trial he said he had no fear. As Delmas
entered the Tombs building today to
visit Thaw, he said: "I am still counsel
for Harry Thaw. I may have a state
ment to make later."
The women of the ThaW family are
in no Worse condition today than the
prisoner., Evelyn, Tbaw is almost, a
wreck. Tt it understood that the Count
ess of Yarmouth expects to sail soon
for England to rejoin her husband.
Thaw, when he bad returned to the
Tombs left night, prepared ami gave
out the following statement:
"I believe that every man in the jury
possessing average intelligence, except
ing possibly Mr. Bolton, comprehended
the weight of evidence and balanced it
for acquittal. All my family bid nie
goodby with courage. I. trust (D. V.)
we may all keep well." - '
To his attorneys Thaw said he was
deeply disappointed.
But I coutd hardly expect anything
else in view of the events of the last few
days," he added.

it was written. He refused to tell who
the friend was. The financier said the
letter sold by Hill differed from the orig

. . Foresters. .
The ladie of Clan Gordon order
scored a great success with their ninth
anniversary ball held last evening in
Woodmen ball. Over 350' people were
crowded into the hall during the first
part of the evening and the entertain
nwmt and sociability furnwhed by the
ladies of the order kept most of them
there until midnight. At eight o'clock
the farce, "A District (School at Blue
berry Corners," was presented and fur
nished no cid of amusement for the
large audience. This Blueberry school
had a reputation far and wide as being
a difficult proposition for school teachers
to manage and the school directors, J.
J. McKenzie, James Coutts and Alex
MeCaskill, had considerable trouble in
selecting a teacher from the many ap
plicants whom they thought would be
able to subdue the unruly .school but
they finally decided on Mr. Pendergast,
Charles McMillan, Jr., who took his po
sition at once at tho hid of the school
and proceeded to lay down the rules
and regulations. The antics of the
scholars and the efforts of Mr. Pender
gast in attempting to keep order caused
much amusement. William Craig, Wil
liam Leith, Chrissie Rae, Margaret
Jonson and Miss Helen Johnson who bad
charge of getting up the play were es
pecially good in their part. After the
farce music for the grand march was
started by Gilbertson's orchestra of four
pieces. "Chief Sister Mrs. William
Johnson and 'James Ewen, chief of
Clan Gordon, led the march and every
couple that there was room for on the
floor took part in it. The ladies
very pleasing order of dances arranged
which danced out at 2 o'clock this morn
ing. Refreshment of iee cream, cake,
coffee and ' sandwiches were - served
throughout the evening in one corner
of the hall.
The ladies' committee which bad
charge of the hall and to whom much of
its success is due was composed of
Chief Sister Mrs. William Johnston,
Mrs. George Stewart, Mr. George
Angus, Mrs. George Williamson, Mrs.
John Cron, Mrs. James Campbell, Mrs.
John Corski, Mn(, J . Kesson, Airs.
Milne, Mrs. William Edwards ami Mrs.

S. Gonyo and Agnes Neverett Arrested
in Leominster, Mass., Yesterday
Afternoon. :
Sheriff Frank Tracy late yesterday
afternoon arrested .Mrs. Agnes Neverett
and 8. Gonyo, both of this city, at
Leominster, Mass., where lie had fol
lowed them after their departure from
this city about two1 weeks ago. Both
are charged with adultery. Trace of
them was secured by means of shipment
of goods from this place to the Massa
chusetts city. They . will be held in
Leominster until extradition papers
can bo made out, and tbmhearinonthat
was continued for " one week. The
woman is said to have been accompanied
by her three children, 'and the man is
said to have a wife and several children
in this city.
Mrs. -Agnes Neverett was in Barre
city court on Monday, February 18 of
the present year" following a raid at
her place on Granite street on Febru
ary 16, at which time the officers se
cured thirteen Itottle of whiskey. At
the hearing Mrs. Neverett entered a
plea of guilty of one offence of selling
liquor illegally and was fined $300. Her
lawyer, M. M. Gordon, argued for pro
bation for the woman on the ground
that the husband had left the support
of three children on the woman, which
was a hardship, and (State's attorney
Gates recommended to the court that
the woman be placed on probation. In
consideration of this Judge Scott so
ordered, after the woman bad paid ,the
cost of the case which amounted to
$33.09, and the woman was allowed to
go. At the hearing several men testi
fied to having bought liquor at the house
among them being Isaac Gonyo and
Frank Gonyo. If, the extradition is
granted the two respondents, now held
in Massachusetts will probably be
taken before the present term of Wash
ington county court.
Granite Savings Bank Observed Its
Birthday Today Its Growth.
Twenty-two years ago today, April
13. 1885, the Granite Savings Bank and
Trust company began business. , Dur
ing these years, by careful and conser
vative management, it has built up a
lprge, busiuess and fairly earned the
reputation which it bears of being a
safe, careful and progressive banking
institution, granting to it customers
every reasonable accommodation and
striving always by fair dealing and
courteous treatment to merit the ap
proval and confidence of the public.
That the public is appreciative of the
methods and management of this bank
is shown by the fact that its deposits
are Bearing the $1,100,000 mark and
that during the year ending April 12,
1E)7, 1,114 new savings accounts were
opened, ss well as many new commercial
acounts. Since . its organization this

present board of directors have been
members of the Itoard since the organi
