COMMISSION DECIDED THAW IS IN
HIS RIQHT MIND.
THE TRIAL 'NOW ' TO PROCEED
VEKDICT IS UNANIMOUS'lT IS
SAID IN NEW YORK.
REPORT IS NOT MADE PUBLIC
The Commission in Lunacy Which Has
Been Investigating Mental Condition
of Harry Kendall Thaw Says That
He is in Right Mind.
.New York , April 4. Harry K. Thaw
was declared sane by the lunacy com
mission at a late hour today.
The report has not been made pub
lic , but It Is said to be unanimous.
The trial of Thaw for the murder of
Stanford White will now proceed.
New York. April 4. Harry Thaw ,
layer of Stanford White , either will
be'offlcially proclaimed Insane and ordered
derod sent to a state asylum or his
trial will bo resumed before Justice
nfzg'erald upon the finding of the
lunacy commission that the defendant
is at this time capable of rightly un
derstanding his own position , of ap
preciating the nature of the charges
against him and of rationally advi ? .
y/ith his counsel. The commit *
completed Its work and is ready .
report to Justice Fitzgerald. ' Thaw
underwent a thorough mental and
physical examination for more than
two hours yesterday afternoon. In
this last crucial test he was entirely
alone befoore the commission , even
the district attorney and members
of his own counsel being barred.
When the three members of the com
mission David McClure. Peter B.
Olney and Dr. Leopold Putzel had
completed their final examination
they fchook hands with Thaw In a
most cordial manner. Ho went back
to his cell with a light heart and de
clared later to his counsel that ho
felt the commission would surely de
clare him sane. The attorneys shared
their client's optimistic view of the
situation. District Attorney Jerome
would not commit himself in any wayt
Thaw's counsel declared they were
ready to proceed with the case , and
believed Mr. Dclmas might begin his
rummmg up address before noon. In
that event , they said , Jerome would
address the jury on Friday and a ver
dict might be expected before the
week's end. There Is little or no like
lihood that the report of the commis
sion ever will be made public. If
the decision favors Thaw , Justice Fitz
gerald will merely order the trial to
proceed without any reference whatso
ever to the interruption which began
two weeks ago. Should the decision
bo against Thaw , Justice Fitzgerald
would have to quote but briefly from
the formal finding of the commission
in his order' committing the young
man to an asylum.
If committed , Thaw would have to
remain in the asylumr until declared
rane by the superintendent of the in
stitution. Then he'would bo brought
hero and tried again. The last pub
lic session of the'commission was held
yesterday morning , to hear the testi
mony of two more alienists. Dr. Diet-
fondorff of Mlddletown , Conn. , for
the prosecution , and Dr. Charles G.
Wagner of Blnghamton , N. Y. , for the
defense. Dr. Dieffendorff gave an aca
demic decision , based on assumed
facts and writings of the defendant ,
and declared that Thaw was Incom
petent. Dr. Wagner said ho had
talked wTh the prisoner almost dally
for nearly two months and has been
unable to find anyth'lng upon which
to predicate an opinion of mental unsoundness -
soundness at this time. Ho was not
willing to go on record , however , as
specifically declaring Thaw to be in
very sense a sane man. He said he
had not sufficient facts before him , or
sufficient time In which to reach so
positive a conclusion. Dr. Wagner
repeated many of his recent conver-
oatlons with Thaw , and gave the de
fendant's idea of his predicament.
Thaw declared that ho realized his po
sition today was serious. He thought ,
however , his attorneys had made such
food progress' ' during the trial that
ho was In a much hotter position than
when it was begun. He said ho had
no delusion now that his act was an
act of Providence.

Now Orleans , April 4. The govern
ment's side of the argument In the

scnted by Clarion Erwln In rebuttal

win said the evidence showed Greene
nnd Gaynor to have been fugitives
from Justice. Ha cited a statute pro
vldlng that persons fleeing from jus
