Report Will Be Handed In to Justice
Fitzgerald Character of the Tes
timony of the Allcnlots Ic Very Con
flicting. Now York, April 3. Tho lunacy
commission inquiring into tho prevent
mtnta) Btato of Harry K. Thaw will
conclude its labors today and report
its conclusions to Justico Fitzgerald
before the hour set for the Thaw Jury
to report In court tomorrow morning.
Thero will bo a brief public session

fered by District Attorney Jerome,
and then will follow a private mental
and physical examination of the de
fendant. Only tho members of the
commission and tho official stenogra
pher will be present at Thaw's last
ordeal, attorneys for tho defense and
tho district attorney being barred.

sion desired to renew Its private exam
ination of Thaw was in tho nature of a
complete surprise. The diqclsllon

character of tho testimony. It was
another battle of alienists. Thoso en
gaged by the district attorney declared i
Thaw absolutely Incapable of under-'
standing his condition, of realizing
tho nature or tho charge against him,
or of rationally conferring with coun
sel, while those engaged by tho do-1
fense declared Thaw throughout the I
trial hud acted In a rational manner,

their hearing and fully understood
and appreciated everything connected
with tho trial.
