K. Thaw's latest struggle to regain his
freedom will end tomorrow. The submis
sion of testimony In his hearing before
Justice Isaac N. MI1U closed this after
noon, and all that remains Is the final
arguments of the attorneys. Justice Mills
will file his decision with the county clerk
here on the morning; of Thursday, Au
Several possibilities confront Thaw. The
court may grant his plea and make him
absolutely free. It may decide that he has
not established his sanity and refuse to
Interfere, In which case the state authort
tlrs will probably send him back to Mat
teawan hospital for the criminal Insane.
Dut Justice Mills has further discretion
ary powers. He may feel that the young
man's mental condition Is still In doubt,
and for that reason delay a final order,
meanwhile paroling Thaw In the custody
of some officer, or possibly on his own
recognizance In the care of his family. Or
he may declare Thsw Insane, but moved
by his mother's complaint regarding his
surroundings at Matteawan, send him to

Thaw Confident of Release.
Thaw left t he court room this afternoon
with Jaunty step. The strain of the last
four weeks during which he has submitted
personally to fourteen hours of cross ex
amination was not apparent either In his
face or his hearing.
At no time during the proceedings has
he expressed anything but satisfaction
with the results and confidence In the suc
cess of his case. This afternoon he was as
hopeful as ever. t

Mother Flays Jerome.
The evidence presented in behalf of Thaw
closed with a dramatic outburst by his
mother, Mrs. Mary Copley Thaw, who was
the final witness. Her last words were a
denunciation of District Attorney Jerome.
Earlier In the day she had read a list of
names distinguished In New York society.
They were guests, she said, at a dinner
ha gave In New York which Harry at
tended before his marriage. . Concluding
her testimony, she referred to this list of
"I brought In the names of those who at
tended that dinner to my son," she said,
"because of the statements of Mr. Jerome
regarding the company Harry was accus
tomed to keep. I do not have any special
enmity toward Mr. Jerome, but he cer
tainly has not behaved In this matter In a
gentlemanly way nor In a Christian way.
Mr. Jerome always talked about Harry's
being a frequenter of the tenderloin, when
hs knows aa well as any one that my boy
never went to the tenderloin until bs met
a certain person who dropped him down."
"That," said Attorney Charles Mor
chauser, "ends our case."
Mother Sobs on Stand.
On the stand today Mrs. Thaw's testi
mony was again frequently Interrupted by
Bobbing, as she described Harry's surround
ings at Matteawan.
"Tli at place seemed to me like the vesti
bule to the Infernal regions," she said
The ' principal new witness today was
Rogtr O'Mara, formerly chief of police of
Pittsburg and recently employed by the
Thaws as a detective in Harry's case. He
testified In corroboration of the stories
about Stanford White,
Alienists Kxamtned Agals,
The greater part of the day was devoted
to a reexamination of Thaw's alienists.
Jerome attacked these experts with every

roused the Ire of Dr. Brttton D. E,vans by
asking if he was the object of the denun
ciation of medical expert witnesses de
livered yesterday by Governor Fmuklln

tendent of the New Jersey Insane hospital
at Morris Plains. The expert replied that

Dr. Isham Q. Harris of the Poughkeepsle

both alienists stuck to thetr aaertton that

have been when he shot Stanford' White

Appeal to Higher Court
Will Be Taken.
MUSKOGEE. Okl., Aug. . Federal
Judge Ralph E. Campbell this afternoon
sustained the Demurrers of defendants In
;W.OO0 Indian land alienation suits brought
by the government. The action by the
government was ordered dismissed. The
court held that the titles obtained from
the Indlnns before the act temovlng re
strictions went Into effect are goofl.
The alienation suits were brought by the
government In the interest of the members
of the five civilized tribes. It Is estimated
that about 2.000,000 acres of land were In
volved in the suits. The suits hare been
pending for more than a year against
grantees In conveyances Involving re
stricted lands In the old Indian territory
section of Oklahoma.
Senator Was Defendant.
The defendants In the suits, who claimed
title to the land by reason of purchase
from the Indians, are scattered throughout
the United States and some reside In Scot
land and Mexico. United States Senator
Robert I.. Owen was a defendant In 150
cases, and Chief Justice Williams of the
supreme court of this state was also a

that the act of congress conferring state
hood on Oklahoma, Including old Indian
Territory, conferred citizenship both state
and national upon all members of the civil
The court held that the contention of
the government that the Indians still oc
cupy the position of wards under the gov

to sue for their protection presents an
anomaly. According to the decision the

Time Given for Appeal.
Judge Campbell granted the requisite
time for the government attorneys to
complete the record for an appeal from
his decision to the United States circuit
court at St. Louts.
The distinctive difference between these
suits and the Muskogee town lot eases Is
that the lands In the present controversy
had been allotted to the Indians In sever

and was purchased by the defendants be
fore such removal. In the town lot cases
the lands belonged to the Creek Indians
and had never been allotted to Individuals.

NORTH PLATTE, Neb., Aug. 6. (Special

exciting people here since the city council
called a special election for that purpose,

of this city issued a special edition this
afternoon, with the entire first page con
taining an expose of a deal made buying
the services of that paper during' the

The selection of the 1910 convention city
concluded the local convention.
While the fight over the convention city
was the feature of the Friday morning ses
sion, the report of the'resolutlons committee
was really more Important.
The Jewelers voted by the terms of one
resolution to compel every manufacturer
of watch movements and cases In the land
to submit an official mlinlmutn fixed price
which a special committee of the Jewelers
will publish to the trade.
The hope of the Jewelers is thereby to
help knock out mall order business, which
has disturbed them Berlously since its in
auguration by catalogue houses. The Jew
elers are also going to have an official
code of ethics for the conduct of their
business and the national president and
secretary ate instructed to draw this up.
Boost for the River.
Another Important resolution passed was
an Indorsement of the work of the Na
tional River and Harbor congress. Max
Hurlbut of Fort Dodge offered the resolu
tion, which was written by John L. Fox,
special director for the congress.
It was determined that hereafter no con
vention city shall be allowed to ask man
ufacturers and wholesalers for funds to
help entertain the National Retailers' as
sociation at Its convention, as has been
the custom of the past.
Afver the committee report favoring De
troit had been read there was half an
hour of lively debate on the floor ot the
convention. A. B. Hull of Belding, Mich.,
led for Detroit and Franklin Thompson of
Milwaukee, which he referred to as "Beer
vllle," took a prominent part. Mr. Thomp
son was in a delicate position. The mayor
and Commercial exchange of Milwaukee
invited the Jewelers to come there, but
the brewery city Jewelers felt themselves
not ready. So Thompson did. not appear
to plead before the special committee and
when the debate on the floor came off, he
boosted for Detroit, "the town," he said,
"I was born In, and a d good city It Is."
Thompson demanded of J. R. Stebblns,
a Cedar Point supporter. If the hotel at
Cedar Point was fireproof.
Stebblns was forced to admit that It was
not, "but," said he, "Is the one we are
now In fireproof?"
President Barker of the Minnesota dele
gation read the last paper of the duy at
the morning session. He argued for a fed
eration of all people in the Jewelry trade,
manufacturers. Jobbers and retailers.
The resolutions adopted thanked the
