Complete Surprise Sprung
Case Before Jury In
Hendrick's Court
New York, June 211. A complete
surprise was sprung by John 11. Stanch
field, counsel for Harry K. Thaw, when
Thaw himself wn called as the first
witness today in the sanity trial of
Stanford Whito's slayer before a jury
iu Justice Hendricks' court.
The calling of Thaw was so unlooked
for by Deputy Attorney General Cook
that he waB entirely unprepared to
cross exnuiiie tho witness nud per
mitted him to be excused nt the con
clusion of his diroct examination, sub
ject toj being recalled.
Thaw wns on the stand only 25 min
utes. The brevity of the direct exnm
iuutiou conducted by Htnnchlield also
cume as a surprise. Thaw was plainly
nervous. Be seemed to sink into the
witness chair. His hnnils twitched ami
he replied to Slaiichficld 's questions
unsteadily nt first. His first answers
were scarcely audible, but he regained
his composure within a short time mill
replied to .ill questions 'dearly and dis
tinctly. The first questions alluded to
Thaw's escape trom Mattcuwuu. His
sensational flight from the institution
was again gone over and there was a
note of triumph in Thaw's voice as he
told how tile New Hampshire commis
sion in Judge Aldtii'h's court had ad
judged him sune.
In his opening Address, before culling
Thaw trtthe stand, .Stanchfiold bitterly
denounced Dr. Austin Klint, one of the
state's nlienists, who has at. all times
maintained that Than is incurably in
sane. "lie has niiiile thousands out nf this
case," said Htunchfiehl. "People nre
interested in keening Thaw insane be
muse there is money iu it."
Ktanchfii'ld said lr. Flint hud never
examined Ths-w j(rffmbv.
Stauelifield rend the address inmln
the jury in Thaw s second trial by Wil
liam T. Jerome, who uppearcd as at
torney for tiie state in biith of the de
fendant's trials for the murder of
White. Thaw was acquitted as insane,
but Slanchl'ield emphasized the state
ments made by Jerome in his address in
which he said White met the fate lie
deserved, aim that the revelations made
by Evelyn Thaw were the worst iu the
history of New York. He pointed out
that Jerome then said he did not be
lieve Thaw was insane.
A hi'iivv blow was sustained bv the
state in the insanity trial of Harry K.
Thaw titlay when it was learned that
Mrs, Susan Merritt, a former boardiiiK
house keeper, who wns exH'ctcd to ap
pear as a witness, could not be found.
Mrs. Merritt testified in former trinls
of Thaw for the killing of Stanford
White. Hint the ilefendnnt bent chorus
girls he brought to her hisise. Toe
stall' is iiivestiu'iitilig the disappear
.nice uf Mrs, Merrit ns her testiuioav
is regarded as valuable in showing
Thaw in-ane.
John II. M.'inchfield, counsel for
Tliuw, opened the ease today with his
address to the .jury, insisting the de
fendant was sane nod laving the ground
work for the contentions nu winch tins
would be ba-cd.
Deputy Attorney (leneral Flunk Cook
for the stati', declared Thaw is still
suffering trom the mental aberration
under which ho was laboring when he
kilbd White nine years ago Friday.
Cook ih-i-t"'i Hint Thaw is an incurable
I aranoie.
Depiitv Attorney (leneral Conk
scored Thaw's private life.
"Thaw led a wild life of debauchery
from the time he left Pittsburg lis a
young man for the night life and
hrighl lights of llroadwiiy, hnid Cook.
