Thursday, ibortly before midnight. Events moved swiftly and thrilling Ijr In tbe last day of tbe great Thaw trial in New York. For Thaw and for those1 who were hoping for Ills acquit tal It was the most soul trying ordeal of the twelve week* which the trial bad lasted. I'pon the heels of District Attorney Jerome's closing address, nearly every word of which was like the blow of a lash on Thnw and his girl wife, Justico Fitsgerald charged the jury In a manner that seemed to dry up every vestige of hope for Statt ford White's slayer. And then the case was given to the jury. Tbe closing day of the trial proceed ings was the most dramatic since the prisoner's wife recited her pitiful story on the Witness stand. District Attor ney Jerome disserted the argument of Mr. Delraas for the defense and tort It to shreds. Seizing upon Incidents In Thaw's life, be pictured tbe prisoner as a man whose character was as black as that of Stanford White, and Evelyn Xesblt he portrayed as a girl anything rat the Innocent child Mr. Delmas bad ihown her. Harry K. Thaw sat with clenched flats and blanched face while District Attorney Jerome tore hts life to sUreda, and demanded that tbe jnry assess against blm the death penalty. Sar casm tipped every word which the dis trict attorney spoke. He declared tbe aathetlc "unwritten law" arguments of Mr. Deimas, if heeded by tbe jury, would turn New York Into the sem blance of a western mining camp, and fidimled the "dementia Americana" on which the final plea for acqnittal bad been made. The district attorney declared that romance and sentiment did not enter Into the Issue It was not a question of Stanford White's character or Eve lyn Thaw's suffering? it was a plain, mattcr-of-fact homicide. "A common, cowardly tenderloin murder," is tin way he termed it. It was Jerome's summing-up speech —tbe last word in tbe famous trial be fore tbe judge intrusted the prisoner's fate to tbe jury. Jerome lashed Thaw as with a knout of a thousand flails. It was the most savage attack of tlM Rurroao WHIT*. whole trial. There was not a dart page in Thaw's life that was not turn ed to the light of criticism aad Mama So tierce, so vindictive waa Jerome thai there were many who believed ha waa purposely seeking to gocd Thaw lots name outburst "Bo la guilty and abould be punished," was the hordes ef his speech. following this terrific arralgn which bad turned the hopes o! Thaw and bis relatives into forebod ings, came tbe judge'a charge to tt* jury. Aa the jurist, avoiding all ef. forts at oratorical effect, went over tht facts and admonished tbe meu who an to decide on Thaw's fate to pot aalda paaalon and prejudice and fender s verdict strictly oa the legal points at iasoe, aa expression of abject terms ovenpread tbe prisoner's face. The jodgn'a definition of insanity sufficient to cause sn acquittal dampened tht hopes even of the prisoner's lawyers aaid aa the jnry filed out of tbe roots It was plain that all concerned wen deliberating for aaors tbsc hours without being able tc reach an agreeoaent. the jurors report ed before Justice Fitzgerald Tbaraday morning and asked permission te a*las a Urge number of the exhibltt Introduced daring the trial and a 1st asked to have rend to then the teatl mony ef several of tbe eyewftaessei to tbe traced*. .r-„ i' Will FNvest Ilea Slekaewk Sir Willis as II.

Eve lyn Nesbifs early home, like Thaw's, was in Pittsburg. She ie the daughter of Winfield Scott NeSbit, s lawyer who had a eMail practice and died leaving the widow with only a pittance. At the age of 14 Ereiyn began to work for her liv ing in a photographic studio in Philadel phia. Her employer took a picture of her to hang in aa exhibit ion, and Evelyn woke np tbe next morning to find herself a famous beauty. Artists began to beg her to pose for than, and within a few mootha the was earning a good income in New York as a model. In these model days she met White, who Induced her to go upon the stage, and persuaded s theatrical manager to give her a trial. Later White sent Miss Nesbit to a fashionable eastern school and after that she returned to the stage. Among the host of men who were smitten by her charms was Harry Thaw. His attentions were st first received with disfavor, although he had a habit of sending to her boms grand pianaa, pearl nseklscaa, etc. These gifts were istmned by her mother, who chapsronad har devotedly. Miss Nesbit subsequently went to Eu rope with her aether, sad Thaw panned. After n few saonths Mrs. Neebit return ed to snnonnco that her daughter waa at last seeepting the attentions of "that edleoa man," and that she wished to havo nothing aaare to ds with her.
