rcputy Attorney -General Clarke, who is
conducting the state's case in the pro

Amos T. Baker, superintendent of Mat

there, was sufficiently impressed with
Mrs. Thaw's representations to cause one

Conrt Will Thn Teell Evelyn Thaw
to Repeat Thaw's Threat.
WHITE PLAINS. N. Y.. July 14. Eve
lyn Thaw'a lips were still closed by legal
technicalities today and she did not re
sume the stand, as expected, to testify
for the state In opposing Harry K.
Thaw's attempt to prove himself sane.
The state's attorney announced at ad
journment yesterday that they would
show today that the much disputed con
versation between Thaw and his wife at
the asylum, in which Thaw Is supposed
to have threatened to kill her when he
got out, was not privileged, and therefore
Evelyn Thaw would be recalled and her
testimony ' on this point would be ad
mitted. This was not done, however.
Again tomorrow the state will attempt
to show that this conversation should be
admitted. At adjournment tonight Jus
tice Mills intimated to Thaw's counsel
that he was inclined to admit It.
Evelyn's Attitude Pnzzle.
A great crowd packed the courtroom to
day. The testimony was enlivened at
times by bits of humor and Thaw often
laughed heartily at some remark at his
expense. Attendants at Matteawan testl
fied that he always appeared rational in
speech and action, and several physicians
testified along the same line

band Is puzzling.' ' It is not generally

has often been quoted as repeating In
effect her famous declaration, "I'll stand
by you, Harry," it is reported that. In the
event that heftesUmony ultimately goes
against Thaw, his attorney will call
witnesses to show that she remarked that
she was glad to see him in Matteawan.
The former chorus girl has not Joined the
Thaw family during the hearing. When
she left White Plains today she traveled
to New York alone.
Thaw Still Supports He.
During her testimony yesterday Mrs.
Thaw said that her husband was not
supporting her properly, but it was
brought out on the stand today that
he is paying her $500 a month.
Dr. Valdimir Sillo, a New York prac
titioner, testified that he had seen Thaw
about 25 times In all. and that Thaw
always appeared rational. Dr. Sillo
related a conversation with Thaw at
Matteawan. In which Thaw referred to
an Incident at the Hotel Knickerbocker
in New York, in which Evelyn Thaw
" 'I regret very much she persists in
keeping herself so much in the public
eye." Thaw said, 'but what can I do? I
have done everything I can for her.' "
said the witness.
Dr. Sillo testified that for the last
three months Harry Thaw had been
sending him $70 a week and $200 at
the end of each month and that he had
been turning the money over to Thaw's
' wife, as he had been Instructed to do.
Miss Anna G. W. Payley. a lawyer, of
Poughkeepsie, testified today that she
had attended to some small legal mat
ters for Thaw when he was in the
Poughkeepsie Jail and had frequently
seen and talked with him during that
time. He always impressed her as ra
tional, she said.
Miss Mary Murane, matron of the
Poughkeepsie Jail, testified that "Thaw
