IN THAW CASE
New York, July 17.—The defense
in the Thaw-White tragedy placed the
prosecution on the defensive in the
supreme court this morning when
upon the application of lbaw’a attor
neys the court granted a writ of pro
hibition, reetraining Di trlct Attor
ney Jerome and the July grand jury
from taking any evidence as to the
killing of White or the responsibility
of Thaw for his death.
The writ of
prohibition is regarded as a forerun-
ner of a motion for a change of venue
to another county.
Ths- ’a wife visited the prisoner to
day, and for the first time since the
tragedy Evelyn appealed at the
Tombs in a different costume.
There are some very pretty numbers left
in this department, and to close out the
line we are making most liberal reductions
and will work them over to fit anv form
without extra charge.

LEWIS MAY DEFEND.
New York, July 17.—J. Hamilton
Lewis, who is here in connection
with Chicago litigation, is consider
ing an offer to take Thaw's case. He
demands a fee of *25,000, paid upon
the day of the prisoner's acquittal, of
which Lewis appears certain, having
the theory that Thaw was justified in
his act. Lewis says he would resign
as corporation counsel of Chicago if
he accepted a retainer in the case.
^Portland, July 17. —Federal Judge
Hunt this morning announced that
the land fraud trials will begin to
morrow. That if the defendant, Mar
tin G. Hoge, who alleges illness at
Medford, is not present, his *4000
bail bond l>e declared forfeited.
E. B. Pickell, of Medford, who was
ordered to make an examination of
Hoge by the United States district
cour , finds that the latter, while ill,
is uot dangerously so and has no
iufiammation of the kidneys. The
diagnosis of Dr. Pickell is couflrmed
by au examination performed by Dr
W. S. Jones, just completed, who
says that Hoge can be taken to Port
land without endangering bis life.
Yesterday afternoon the case against
Thaddeus S. Potter, indictmeut No.

personally concerned, it appearing
that the same issues were involved in
the one where be was couvieted,
hence bis p ea of former jeopardy was
allowed. A plea in abatement is

When the case of State Senator F.
P. Mays was called, under indictment
No. 2887, Judge W. D. Fenton filed a
plea in abatement in the case, similar
in many respects to that submitted
