Jerome Wrntur n He 1Ienr Federal
Indite linn Grunted Connnel for
Mnttenwin Fuiritlve Writ
ot Habeas Corpus.
COLEBROOK, N. H Sept. H.-TI10 per
petually recurring writ ot habeas corpus,
which hns so often dotted the career of
Harry K. Thaw ulnco his Incarceration
In Mattcawan as the Insane slayer of
Stanford Whlto, cropped up again this
afternoon In his fight to resist extradi
tion from New Hampshire after his un
expected deportation from Canada. This
time and for the first time In the history
of Thaw's efforts to regain his liberty
tho wrt was Issued by a federal court.
United States Judge Aldrlch In the dis
trict of New Hampshire 'granted the ap
plication of three of the Thaw lawyers.
Martin, Shurtlcff and Olmstcad, and
made It returnable at Littleton next Tues
day. William Travcrs Jerorm, specially
deputized to bring the fugitive back to
the asylum, heard the news with ill grace
and characterized the movo as one of
bad faith. Thcro had been a "gentle
man's agreement," he said, that neither
sldo was to make a court movo pending
tho extradition hearing before Governor
Felker In Concord next week.
Writ One of Expediency.
The Thaw leaders, led by Moses H,,
Grossman, said the writ was one of ex
pediency and had been obtained to meet
an emergency should the governor refuse
a full hearing on the extradition matter
and, signing the requisition warrant
forthwith, turn Thaw over to officers of
the etato ot New York. They had reason
to believe now, they added, that a full
hearing would be accorded the fugitive
and in view of 'this It was probable that
they would request on Tuesday that tho
habeas corpus hearing be continued-
"It seejns to me," said Mr, Jerome,
frlmly, "that this Is trifling with the fed
eral court. I should hesitate to apply for
a writ In such circumstances."
Thaw spent a very . quiet day. There
was no court' hearing here. It has not
removed to Concord, but he wilt likely re
main here until ths governor sets & dato
for a hearing which may bo Wednesday
of next week or later. Tonight tho fugi
tive gave out a 'telegram which his
mother. Mr. Mary Copley Thaw, sent
from Montreal to Governor Felker, He
added that she would not ccme here at
present in view of the uncertain status
of affairs. This Is her telegram:
Appeal of Mother.
"To his excellency, Governor Felker, I
address your excellency In the interests
.of my son, H. K!. Thaw, who after being
deprived of tho liberty the average ac
quitted man would Immediately have re
ceived after a verdict of 'not guilty,'
upon the ground of the defendants' In
sanity at tho timo ot the commission ot
the net!, charged under the Indictment,
has for five and a half . years endured
untold hardships and indignities In one
of New York's worst penal Institutions.
Finally he took the only recourse left, a
flight for the freedom denied through
"May I beg that your excellency will
secure to him, In whatever way proper,
a fnlr and Impartial hearing during tho
Impending proceedings. ,
"Yours very sincerely,
"MARY C, THAW."
A petition to Governor Felker praying
that he refuse extradition in the Thaw
case on the ground that Thaw had suf
ferred enough for his crime was circu
lated In Colebrook today. Up to tonight
It was said ICS signatures had been ob
tained. Friends of Thaw, It Is said, have pur
chased for. him a. through ticket from
