Even John Philip Sousa, ihe treat bandmaster, who has no use for
Phonographs, has been forced to recognize the Phonograph as a for
midable competitor. The two-step king says that people will no
longer go to concerts if they can have music in their own homes so
easily and so cheaply as they can with the Phonograph. This is an
unwilling tribute, but it is nevertheless a tribute. The man who has
a Phonograph has a concert in his own house. Even a king could not
have more. At our store you can hear them any time.

THAW TRIAL FIASCO
AFTER BEING OUT NEARLY 48
HOURS NO VERDICT IS FOUND.
Accused Remanded t0 Tombs Without
Ball to Await Second Trial, Which ;
Cannot Be Reached Before Some :
Time Next Fall. j
New York, April 115. Hopelessly dl-
vlded seven for a verdict of guilty of j
murder in the first degree and live lor
acquittal on the ground of Insanity
the jury which, since .Ian. 23 last, had
been trying Harry K. Thaw, reported
after forty-seven hours and eight min
utes of deliberation that it could not
possibly agree on a verdict. Tho
twelve men were promptly dlschaiged
by Justice Fitzgerald, who declared
that he, too, believed their task was
hopeless. Thaw was remanded to tho
Tembs without bail to await a second
trial on the charge of having murdered
When this new trial would tako
place, no ono connected with the t-aso
cfluld express an opinion. District At
torney Jeromo declared there were
many other persons accused of homi
cide awaiting trial, and Thaw would
havo to take his turn with the rest.
As to a possible change or venue, both
the district attorney and counsel for
Thaw declared they would make no
Kiioii move. Thaw's attorneys will havo
n conference today with the prisoner
lo decide on their next step. They
may make an early application for
bail. Jerome said he would strenu
ously oppose it. Ho added tho belief
that as seven or tho jurors had voted
for "guilty," his opposition probably
would bo successful. In Unit event
Thaw has another long summer bo
lore him in the city prison, for his
case on the already crowded criminal
calendar cannot poss.ibly be reached
until some time next full.
Tho scenes attending tho announce
mont by the Jury of Its inability lo
agree were robbed of any theatrical
ism by the general belief that after
their long deliberation and tho re
ports of a wido division of sontimont,
tho jurors could make no other report
than ono of disagreement.
Thaw Receives News in Silence,
Thaw, surrounded by tho members
of "his family, received the news in ab
solute silence. When it became known
that the jury was about to make Its
report, Thaw called his wife to a seat
by hirf aide, and sat with his right
arm thrown about her until he was
commanded to stand and face the
jurors. Smiling and confident as he
entered the court room, he sang limp-'
ly Into his chair when Foreman Deni-1
ing H. Smith, in response to a ques-'
Hon by Clerk Penny as to whether a
verdict had been agreed upon, said:
"We havo not." '
The mother, her features hidden, be
hind a denso veil of black, sat stolid
and motionless. In 111 health or lato '
she had felt severely the strain and ,
stress of the long hours of anxious !
waiting. The wife gripped her hus
band's hand tightly as the Jury fore
man spoke, and then when he sank ,
down by her side, she tried to cheer
him as best she could by saying that
she believed ho would be admitted to
bail and that a. second jury would ,
surely set him free. 'I he mother, t no
sisters and the brothers, pale and
well nigh exhausted by their tedious
wait for a verdict, were permitted to
speak with Thaw for a few moment,
to bid him be of good cheer before he
crossed the 'IJiidge or Sighs" to tho
cell, which, until a lew moments be
fore, he hoped he was about to quit
Outside the criminal courts build
ing only a few hundred persons wero
gathered. Thounands had been thero
earlier in tho day, but police rein
forcements had arrived with Instruc
tions to keep everyone moving, and
tills had soon tired the Idly curious
into a willingness to depart.
The court loom itself was half emp

court attaches, ami a few favored
friends were allowed to enter to hear

Proceedings in Jury Room.
Tho story of the- pioceedlngs In tho
jury room far outranked In Interest
tin brief court, proceedings which
brought tho famous trial to a close.
It developed that the jury had con
sidered everything connected with tho
case except "the, unwritten law." Bas
ing their judgment entirely on the evi
dence, they voted either for or against
murder In the first degree when they
cast their, first ballot. The first vote
was 8 to I in favor of conviction.
Then the Jury tried to reach a com
mon ground on a verdict of man
slaughter in tho first degree, tho pun
ishment of which ranges to n mnxl
mum of twenty years' imprisonment.
Tho men In favor of acquittal largely
on the ground of insanity, it Is sn Id
would not change their ballots, and in
the end won over to their side ono .of
the eight who favored conviction.
During tho nearly forty-eight hours of
deliberation only eight ballots were
cast. Tho jury spent tho two night
sessions dozing In their chairs. Tho
story of what happened in tho jury
room f i om the time the twelve men
letlred until they finally decided that
tho prospects of a verdict wore too
remote to warrant longer discussion
of tho facts was told by ono of the
jurors, llonry C. Harney. Tho final
ballot, taken just before the jury ro
ported its rlsagreement in court, wna
as follows: For conviction of murder
In tho first degree: Smith, foreman;
Pfnff, Fecke, Hrearley, Newton, Bol
ton and Gerstmnn. For acquittal on
the ground of insanity: Pink, Harney,
Fraser, Steele and Donne.
