friends of Mrs. and Miss Hennlngs In thJ
neighborhood hastened to the- home and
''tried to administer what comfort and re-lk-f
they could." Mrs. Hennlngs was pros
trated and hysterical, but Miss Hennlngs
uppcared to bear the awful shock and
p'lef better. Drs. XV: K.-Milroy and H. M.
'MVMarth'rli were' summoned; but all thy
could do was 'td ariiU)Uncd"ttat they were
powerless. - . .
Tlie news reaehed downtewn a few min
utes after the tragedy and created a pro-
'loimd sfiieatlon. Many)- business- men
talked wlttiMr. Hennlngs Monday and
Tuesday and were at a loss to understand
how a man apparently so optimistic and
busy could have become possessed of tho
desire to -end his lif. In no way did he
give anyone, , not excepting the members
of his famllyi Intimation that they might
uutlclpate aaythlng of the kind.

It Is said that to a great extent Mr.
Hennlngs was a fatalist. His temnersmcnt
was nervous and ardent and he could not
brook affronts of a personal nature. Close
friends and old associates say be believed
events were foreordained. They are still
unable, however, to account for the suicide.
except on the theory thnt political Ill
fortune left him with a feeling of per
sonal humiliation, notwithstanding the fact
that few men In politics Wf less abused
or attacked. His whole career was one of
honor and manifested respect and regsrd
not only from his friends, but from oppo
nents as well. In the mayoralty campaign
he endeavored to represent the conservative
sentiment. He 'made a ha'rdT pefeorlBl cam

cured more votes thah W: j:- 'Brofcten.Mhe

For eight or nine -years before 1900 Mr.
Hennlngs had taken a . moderately active
interest In republican politics, and In that
year he was nominated for city ' treasurer
by the' republican convention. He was
elected and proceeded to reorganize the
treasury department on a business basis.
He was remarkably successful In the mat
ter of making tax collections, raising the
yearly average of collection of cusrent
taxes from M to So per cent, enabling the
city to conduct Its affairs on a "cash sys
tem for a part of the year. He lnntlutt

and enforcement of the scavenger tax sale
law as most" Important. ' He was active
both In devising this law and bringing
about Its enforcement. The office of city
tressurer was abolished and combined with
the county treasurer In 1908.
No Fanlt with Hla Office.
In 1904 Mr. Hennlngs was chosen 'trea
urer or me state republican committee
and no fault was ever found with his
management of the office. In the state
campaign of W4 he performed valuable
services in securing funds for the use of
the state committee. Drafts and even over
drafts on tne tressurer by a system of
vouchers were always promptly paid.
Besides his Immediate family Mr. Hen
nlngs had no close relatives living In this
country. His parents are dead. A brother
C. F. Hennlngs, who is a hat manufac
turer, survives at Emden. Germany.
fnlted States Marshal Warner, chairman
of the state republican committee, of
wnicn Mr. Hennlngs was treasurer, de
plored the tragedy. He said:
"I am under the impression he had In
hla charge about 11.600 of tha state com

well he was doing In his new business

and satisfied. I can Imagine no cause for
his action. I can scarcely think It was

that so philosophically, or at least seemed
to. He came down to my place the day

Coroner Brailey Las not determined
whether or not an Inqust will be held. As
far as the death was concerned, he said,
It was a clear case of suicide, and on that
score there wss no reason for an Inquest,
but It might be decided to hold one In or

complications which might arise over the
administration of the .estate.

NEW YORK. July ll.-Harry K. Thaw's
attitude toward the press and the public
underwent a striking change between morn
ing and evening today. Immediately after
breakfast he secured permission to have a
delegation of newspaper men brought to
him at the Tombs prison, telling them after
a friendly IntervlewNhat to talk with any
one besides the lawyers, doctors and prison
officials was "like (getting a whiff of fresh
air from the outside world."
' This evening It was different. When the
newspaper ment sent Thaw a note asking
If he wished to add anything to his formal
Statement of Tuesday he sent a reply which
"1 have said all that 1 wish to say. In
future I shall be guided by the advU-e of
At his morning Interview with the news
paper men Thaw asked them to give the
widest publicity to his statement of yester
day which denied that he was Insane and
he declared that there was to be no lunacy
commission appointed to Inquire Into his
state of mind.
White's Will Filed.
The will of Stanford White, for whose
murder Thaw Is awaiting trial, was filed
for probate today. The widow, Mrs. Bessie
9. White, Is named as executrix, but the
value of the estate Is not given. The pe
tition of the probate states that White left
no real estate and that the value of the
personal property Is not kndwn. After pro
vision for White's brother, - Richard M.
White, and for hla mother. Alexins B.
White, the entire residuary estate Is left
to White's widow.
Assistant District Attorney Garvan said
today that his detectives had succeeded
tn serving a subpoena upon Mrs. Beatrice
Schwarts, the woman in whose home at a
dinner party Thaw Is alleged to have made
threats against the life of Stanford White.
Mrs. Schwartz will be called before the
grand Jury tomorrow.
May MacKenzie, an actress, was ques
tioned by Mr. Garvan for nearly an hour
today concerning her knowledge of Stanford
White's friendship for Krelyn Neeblt ThaW.
Mrs. MacKenzie is one of the friends of
Mrs. Thaw who have heretofore refused
to furnish the district attorney's office
with any Information concerning the case,
but it is understood that today she freely
told Mr. Garvan what she knew.
Thin Talks to Reporters.
Harry Thaw today reiterated the state
ment given out by him yesterday to the
effect that he is not insane and that no
lunacy commission will be appointed to In
quire into the state of his mind. For this
purpose- he asked permission to see the
newspaper men Immediately after he had
breakfast and they were taken Into the
prison to meet hfrn. After greetings had
been exchanged Thaw said that he had
asked to see them, as he wished to em
phasize and to ask them to give the widest
publicity possible io the statement that he
was not Insane.
"My physical and mental condition are
good and never were better," said Thaw.
"1 had to light pretty hard with my lawyers
to be. . permitted tn make the statement
which, I did make, but I felt -I wanted to
make my. position clear. I told them that
It would make much for my peace of mind.
I couldn't rest easy until I had given out
Speaking of his mother's return to this
country Thaw said:
"I, with all the other members of the
family, was anxious that mother should
remain In Europe. She Is suffering from
rheumatism and went to Europe for the
purpose of taking a cure at Schlnzach,
Switzerland, and I, In fact all of us, wished
her to tske the cure before returning
home. Of course I shall be glad to see her.
but I csn't. help wishing that she had re
mained In Europe for her own sake,"
Likes to Talk to Outsiders.
"During his talk with the newspapermen
Thaw took occasion to explain his failure
to take advantage of the permission to go
Into the prison yard for exercise yesterday.
"The reason I was not out In the yard
yesterday JS simple enough," said he. "I
spent the day when not engaged with my
lawyers In reading and writing letters. It
IS true I was fatigued, but not more than
I have been frequently. As a fact I did
exercise in the empty corridor, which I had
to myself when the prisoners were In the
When Thaw bade the newspapermen
good-bye he told them that he had thor
oughly enjoyed the chat and added that to
talk with anyone besides the lawyers, doc
tors and prison officials was "like getting
a whiff of fresh air from the outside."
Roger O'Mara, formerly chief of police
of Pittsburg, had a long talk with Thaw
today. According to O'Mara, he has been
retained by; the Thaw family to take
charge of the detective work in the case.
He said he had been In New York for a
week. Henceforth he will see the prisoner
frequently, h said. O'Mara said he had
known the family for many years and that
he had often helped Harry Thaw out of
boyish scrapes. '.:..
District Attorney Garvan today received
a letter from William Sttirgls, a friend of
th Thaw family, dated at Berlin, Conn.,
In which Sturgis declarea his willingness
to meet counsel for the prosecution at any
time. Sturgis Is alleged to have witnessed
a threat by Harry Thaw against the life of

The State Board of Railroad Commlston-
ers again Is. receiving. compMnts . fr"mt
points in the state: In regard to warehouse
men, when purchasing groin, taking more
pounds per bushel than Is permitted hy
law. "Numerous complaints of this elur
acter were, made to the board last yeur
and a number of the cases were carefully
Investigated, with thl resy! that they were
found to be based upon a good foundation.
In accordance with the result, of the In
vestigations the. board Issued a warning
to the warehouse men of South Dikota In
general, calling attention to the law gov-
erning the purchase of grnln. The stnte

more pounds rmr' bushel than Is specified
by law. It Is likely that If the practice is
not stopped the rallroa-1 commissioners wll
tak steps to enforce the law to the letter
and punish those who violate Its provisions.
