NEW VORK. July 2. -Justice llendrlck
and the Jury at Harry K .Thaw's sanity
trial had heard most of the state's doc
umentary evidence when court reconvened
tony. Counsel for the state brought
thlr witnesses In the expectation of
calling the first of them this afternoon,
rollcemen who arrested Thaw immedi
ately after he shot Stanford White were
among those waiting to testify.
Satisfied that Evelyn Nesblt Thaw will
be here early next wek In response
to a subjoena calling her as a witness,
the state's attorneys had abandonedy
their preparations to obtain an attach
ment to compel her presence In court.
After the Introduction of further doc
umentary evidence the state called as Ha
first witnes James M. Barrett, a police
man assigned to the tenderloin police
station on the night Harry Thaw was
taken there after the killing of Stanford
White. He gave testlnu ny IntenJed by
the state to prove tliat Thaw, title In
his cell, was under a delusion II at he
heard the voices of little girls screaming.
"Thaw asked me two or three times,"
said the witness. " "Where are those lit
tle girls screaming?' I told him there
were no little girls. Some women had
been srrested and one waa shouting and
carrying on. I told him they were women
and he said, 'Oh, no they aren't. They're
little girls. I hear them screaming." He
asked me who was beating and abusing
them."
Thaw's conduct when he wss forcibly
deported from Canada was described by j
rranK nicradden, a Canadian Immigra
tion officer, who had charge of Thaw
wnue he was In Jail at Sherbrooke, Que.
When told that he was to be deported
Thaw, he said, "flared up In an awful
rage." He threw a bottle through a
window, said McFadden and shouted.
"They're kidnaping me."
McFadden thought Thaw's conduct on
this occasion was "very Irrational."
Henri Glroux, one of the Immigration
Inspectors who took Thaw from the Jail
corroborated McFadden. adding that
Thaw appeared "dangerously mad."
Prominent Czechs
Are Under Arrest
IjONDON. July 2.-The Csech par
liamentary leader, IT. Kramart, and Dr.
Schrelner. head of the Bohemian gym
nastic organization, were arrested at
Tragus on May 5?. charged with
rsptonsge and maintaining friendly rela
tions with the l'ailan consul, according
to the Times. The -n!y compromising
documents found In their possession are
said to have been coplea of a Ciech re
view, published In Tarts.
The Times asserts the two men are Im
prisoned In Vienna, although false re
ports of their liberation have been spread
In the hope of Influencing the Czech
population In favor of the war loan.
The refuaal of the Csech party to dls- i
avow Its arrested leader la reported to
have resulted In Archduke Frederick,
commander In chief of the Austrian army,
addressing to Emperor Francis Joseph a
report denouncing all Csech's as traitors.
The Time article contains the state
ment that several Csech regiments have
deserted to the Russians and Serbians.
Homeopaths Are
Ready to Espouse
Prohibition Cause
CHICAGO, Juiy 2. Homeopathic physi
cians are ready to espouse the cause of
national prohibition, according to Dr. E.
Arthur Carr of Lincoln. Neb., who pre
sented the report of the Interstate com
mittee to the convention of the America!,
Institute of Homeopathy here todsy. The
report carried iHUilnlory recommenda
tions of the Harrison n.ircntl." law.
"1 believe homeopathic physicians are
ready now to support national prohibi
tion." said Ir. Carr. "We, as a profes
sion, use little cocaine or other narcotics
In our prsctlce. much less than are used
by other schools of medicine, but while
we may believe In national prohibition
and In the principle represented by the
Harrison law, this committee does not
want to go further in Ita recommenda
tions, or take any political action other
than the singlo recommendation com
mending this great law."
IT. J. P. Sutherland of Boston ob
jected to the resolution, stating that the
practice of the homeopathic pVnstctans
l ad not required a regulatory measure
like the Harrison law and that he be
lieved there had been much politic be
hind the law as well as purely ethical
motives.
The convention, acting upon Pr. Suth
erland's suggestion, voted to adopt the
committee's report without the recom
mendations. Opposition to the selection of Baltimore
as the next convention city developed
todsy. It wss argued that the method of
selection hy the trustees precludes the
Institute from receiving offers from
Commercial clubs 'of various cities. His
motion that the trustees consider their
selection of Baltimore not final waa car
ried In the form that they hold their
decision until December, with the prlvl
lege of changing the convention city
should they deem It advisable.
