Ology, demonstrating the care with
which ho had prepared himself to
meet tho very defense which Thaw's
counsel havo entered, in his behalf.
Mr. Jeromo scarchingly Inquired Into
Dr. Wiley's record as a physician and
us an export on insanity. He hurled
volleys of technical questions at tho
witness, who at times was mute and
at other times declared be could not
unswor, or gave evasive replies. Often
he brought upon himseir sharp warn
ing from tho district attorney to make
a reply and not an argument. Dr.
Wiley said he predicated his opinion
as to Thaw'3 Insanity upon his actions
tho night of the tragedy as described
to him in a hypothetical question pro
pounded by the defense and upon the
incident which he witnessed on a
Pittsburg street car during the sum
mer of 1905. Thaw, said the doctor,
acted Irrationally on tho car, coming
In suddenly and jerking up ono of
tho window blinds, slamming It down
and then lifting It. again, the while
ongnglng In a wordy war with the con
ductor. THo district attorney then drew
from the alienist the opinion that
Thaw's acts on the Madison Squaro
roof garden, when he killed Stanford
White, wero not acts of Insanity when
taken singly, but constituted evidence
of Insanity when consldere collective
ly. At times Dr. Wiley seemed entire
ly bafllcd by the questions. Ho hesi
tated at each, and before he had an
swered Mr. Jerome had framed anoth
er query replete with Impressive
sounding, technical terms anil appar
ently offering 11 problem no less diffi
cult than Its predecessor. Tho wit
ness admitted that many or the tests
to which the district attorney referred,
such ns the TToniberg test and the Ar
gyll Robertson pupil test, were un
known to him, and when no was asked
to quote from any accepted work on
Insanity, declared he could not give
tho exact language from any book.
Mr. Jerome's well of knowledge,
however, seemed never to run dry.
He carried his cross-examination
(ni.nKl I)ra(.Ucally the entire morn-
jB j,essj0l amj for an hour and twen
