' Piano tuning by J. F. O'Reilly,
resident tuner. Address Box 249,
New York, Nov. 8. Announce
ment was made today that insanity
is to be tho plea In the defense of
Harry Kendall Thaw, whose second
trial for the slaying of Stanford
White will begin on December 2
next. Martin W. Littleton, chief
counsel for Thaw, it is stated, has
decided on this course. Ho is said
to bo convinced that Thaw Is insane
and has not adopted this course as
merely a theory on which to conduct
a successful defense, but because he
feels certain of the unsound mental
condition of his client.
Ever since he took charge of the
case, it is said, Mr. Littleton has
given the question of Thaw's men
tality careful study. He has traced
the Thaw family tree, and, it is said,
has decided that the Insanity of
Thaw may have been an inheritance.
In this connection it is recalled that
Mrs. William Thaw, mother of the
accused, emphatically denied during
the last trial that in the direct line
of descent there had been any trace
of either epilepsy or Insanity.
Seven alienists testified, however,
that Thaw, in their opinion, was in
sane, and had been insane for some
years. Much testimony along this
lino was brought out in the trial,
which reached a climax when Dis
trict Attorney Jerome, in tears, gave
his opinion that ho was trying an
insane man, and that he felt that it
was wrong to proceed with the trial
under those circumstances.

KILLS LITTLE GIRLS
Belln, Nov. 8. A series of crimes
resembling those of "Jack the Rip
per" murders, only here the victims
were little girls instead of women,
has been cleared up by tho confes
sion of a printer's apprentice named
Paul Mlnow, an epileptic 22 years
old, who recently was confined in an
asylum for insane at Herzeburg. Au
thorities of the institution were In
formed that Mlnow had been talking
in a rambling manner of murders.
Suspecting him of having committed
murders, they encouraged him to
talk, with tho result that he freely
related in a heartless manner, how
he had been taunted by his mother
and sister with laziness. Ho had
gone out into the streets in a rage
and vented his feelings by stabbing
four little girls, one after another.
He then rambled about the city for
a while, and eventually returnod
home. His mind became so disor
dered that he was sent to an asylum
a week later. Tho police have con
firmed Minow's confession.
COMES TO RESCUE
Chicago. Nov. 8. The Chicago
postofflce went to the rescue of post
offices in the West in a material way
yesterday as a result of the financial
stringency. Postmasters in many
towns were seriously handicapped by
tho Jack of curency with which to
pay money orders, and a hurry call
wap sent to Chicago for aid. Tho ap
peal will probably result in this city
sending out a considerable amount of
currency, a?, at Postmaster's Camp
bell 'ft office It was said there was
pleutv of money on hand.
