THAW S RETURN TO
NEW YORK ORDERED
United States Supreme Court
Decides Against Slayer of
i Stanford White. v
MEW FIGHT IS PROBABLE
Fugitive From Mat tea wan Xow Is
to Stand Trial on Charge of Con
spiracy to Escape Prison for
Insane Criminals. .
WASHINGTON, Dec. 21. The right
. ef the State of New York to extradite
ttarry K. Thaw from New Hampshire
was upheld today by the Supreme Court
In an unanimous opinion, reversing
Judge Aldrich. of the Federal District
Court of New Hampshire. Justice
Holmes, speaking for the- court.' de
clared the case was "too dear for
lengthy argument," and with few words
wept aside as irrelevant all conten
tions of Thaw's counsel.
Conspiracy to escape from Matteawan
Insane Asylum, to which he was com
mitted after killing Stanford Whlfe In
106, is the charge on which Tha-vr
stands indicted in New York. On this
indictment, once the noted prisoner is
gain in the hands of the New York
authorities, will begin anew Thaw'a
battle against being returned to Mat
teawan. Just what the line of action
then may be was not known here to
night. Fight Likely to Go On.
Philander C. Knox, who conducted
thaw's case before the Supreme Court,
had nothing to say. though it had been
Intimated that ordering of extradition
Vould by no means end the fight.
After 30 days, unless counsel for both
ides Join in asking for action earlier,
the Supreme Court will issue a mandate
to Judge Aldrich to set aside his decree
In habeas corpus proceedings, ordering
Thaw released by the New Hampshire
authorities who were holding him for
extradition under the Governor's order.
This will cause Thaw, now at liberty
under guard of a federal court cus
todian, to be turned over to the State
of New Hampshire and pave the way
(or his Immediate extradition to New
Extradition Is Held Legal.
In brief. Thaw's counsel sought his
freedom on the ground that the indlct
(nent against him charged no crime;
that if he was insane, as the New York
authorities contend in placing htm In
the asylum, he could not be guilty of
the crime of conspiracy fot. which his
extradition was sought.
The Supreme Court held, in effect,
that the question of the prisoner's san
ity or insanity was one which should
fco passed on by the New York State
courts; that an extraditable crime was
charged, and the only question before
the Supreme Court was the legality of
the extradition of a prisoner so charged.
Legal authorities who have followed
the case predicted today that a wide
field of controversy would be opened
up when the New York courts were

MANCHESTER, N. H.. Dec 21.
Harry K. Thaw received without com
ment today the announcement from
Washington that the Supreme Court
had reversed the decision of the Fed
. eral Court in New Hampshire, which
refused to extradite him to New York
His secretary, speaking for him, after
manifesting surprise, said:
"Mr. Thaw has no comment to make.
Any statement regarding the court's
action will have to come from his coun
sel. Philander C. Knox, in whom Mr.
Thaw has every confidence."
Thaw has been in Manchester for
PITTSBURG, D21. "I cannot be
lieve it," exclaimed Mrs. William Thaw,
mother of Harry Thaw, when informed
of the decision of the United States
Supreme Court today.
When assured that the court had or

Mrs. Thaw called her son at Manches
