' (Spatial Dlapatch by Laaead Wtre to The Journal)
'v. New fork. Nov. 17. It Is anticipated
that the trial of Harry Kendall Thaw
for the murder of Stanford White will
') more than rtval the sensational develop-
. mente of the faraoua Stokee-Flsk
' tragedy, which centered about the eap-
tivatlng Jessie Mansfield.
Both sldee are prepared for the Strug

keenly, fought and thrilling.
But agalnat the tmmenae weight Of
the etate'e direct evidence, the aad and
'terrible atery of Evelyn Neablt Thaw
on the wttnese stand la expected - by
! Thaw's lawyers to be potent enough In
Itself to aave her huaband'a life.

Counsel Are legal Giants. ,
' t The dlstrtot attorney-a office and the
7 counaal for Thaw, after months of
. preparation, have declared themselves
k ready. for the call to battle and only
some unforeseen circumstance of great
Importance can disarrange the schedule.
Dlatrlct Attorney Jerome and hla as
, elatant Francis P. Oarvan, who haa con
. ducted the preliminary Investigation,
will represent the state.
The interests of Thaw will be guard-
ed by Dolphin Michael. Delmaa, famoua
as a special Jury pleader on the Paclflo
coast; Clifford H. Hartrldge, upon
... whom . baa fallen the burden ef per-
feet lug the detalla of the defense;
David T. Watson, the Thaw family law-
yar John B. Gleaaon, Russell Peabody
end former District Attorneys Gana and
. Xselln. J'
While there has been much dlscue-
aion and Interest In the selection of
the actual trial lawyers to represent
' Thaw, and several prominent names
1 have been mentioned. It would not be
surprising If Mr. Hartrldge. who la
reputed never to have lost a criminal
' ease, would assume the responsibility
of conducting the defense, with the
arrssr of associate counsel behind him.
' Great Task te Oct a Jury.
. Tbaw Is charged with killing Stan-
Cord White deliberately, with premedl-
fetation and malice aforethought, -en the

- ' . The case, as it will be presented by
. the district attorney, is simple end will

. The killing; the premeditation the no-
,uve for the crime. . .
Forty-eight wltneeaee have been ex.
, amlned in the district attorney's office,

- .Kvelyn Nesblt Tbaw, Truxton Beele and
-.Thomae MoCaleb, chums of Thaw-. -
, Wha Xappeaed at That Sinner.
' Mr. Beale and Mr, MoCaleb, it la ex
pected, will throw a clear light on the
inciaenis wnicn Immediately preceded
the tragedy. It will be shown by theee
witnesses mat axtsr the dinner party,
given by Thaw, had been In session for
some time Stanford White entered the
Cafe Martin and took a aeat at a table
'Hear by. Thaw'e back - was ... toward
- White, and Mre. Thaw faced him.
Shortly after the eppearance of White,
It will be teetlfled. Evelyn.Nesblt Thaw
became deeply agitated, and trembled
... so that she could not hold a fork in her
hand. Thaw noticed her perturbed etate
when he returned- to the table after
speaking to a friend and inquired what
the matter. . .
Wltneeaee will teetlfy that aha made
no reply, but when she regained her
composure wrote on slip of paper fur
nished by a waiter: "That brute is

so that, it will be shewn, he left the
restaurant without his hat and had to

It la contended by Jerome that Thaw,'
In the Cafe Martin, determined to kill
Stanford White that very night
To aave the' prisoaer'e life the deep
est secrete of Thaw and Evelyn Neeblt
Thaw will be given to the world; -
I -And m one could . be- more bravely
willing to saerlnre herself upon the
altar of her wifely affection than Svelyn
Keabit-Thaw, who has brought the only
Joy. and sunshine to Thew s cell since
hie confinement in the Tombs.
Every detail or the defense has been
carefully guarded, but It Is believed In
the district attorney's office that Justi
fication end. Insanity will be the pleas
offered. . ..
The Justification plea will be set up
by Thaw at his trial on his own respon
sibility. , ,.,
' Insanity Only peal Defense.
Insanity will be the plea of the wise
men In the law, who know that the "un
written - law,'-- which - la the. hope - of
Thaw,, has no place In . the penal code
or the rules of evidence in this stats.
Thaw has been humored by hie law
yers as the easiest way to avoid a sim
ilar, outbreak to the one which led htm
to dismiss. Black, Olcott iber and
Bonynge - as counsel after they had
practically perfected the defense of in
sanity, becked up by the opinion of
the moat noted experts in New Vork
State. - -
He is anxious te be A witness He
bag -astoxy.that. a wants to -tell in

White on the roof garden floor;
This Is the " TOan wtur-Tutned mr
wanta to tell the story of how
White pursued Evelyn Nesblt and
mnde her life fearful to her. , .
That Thaw A. abundance of reason
to kill White will be shown after the
opening addresses of his lawyer to the
Jury, when it will be claimed that Thaw
was not mentally responsible for the
killing ef White. The doors will be
opened wide, not to show that Thaw
was Justified in killing White, but to
demonstrate te the 'Jury the circum
stances which, his lawyers believe, de
throned Thaw's reason and made him
an uncontrollable maniac on the. night
or june io.
White Was atanle rig-re.
White, it will be shown, was the
shadow in Thaw's Ufa and every time
Thaw looked at hla nervous, beautiful
wife White's big figure was in the
background and taunting him.. That is
the etsnd of ths defence.
In the line ef proof it will be ehown
that Thaw wee mentally weak from
earliest childhood, but eccentricities
which have brought misery on Thaw's
home, covering a period of many years,
will be set before the Jury to ehow that
the mind ef Thaw was fit for ths de
velopment of the homicidal tendency.
The disposition to insanity in certain
branches In the Thaw family will be
offered in evidence for what it Is worth
in sustaining the general proposition
that Thaw la Insane.
. The hounding of . White by Thaw
through detectives and others will be
trrged by -the defense ss showing the
unnatural lent of his mental operations,
in contradistinction to ths contention
of ths district attorney.

to have said in London, when she was
