THINKS HIM INSANE
SO EFFORTS FOR THAWS EABLY
WORRIED BY DIVORCE SUIT
Attorney Wio Goes to See Mm Do-
cldcs Ho Cannot Bo Freca
NEW YORK March 24. Unless tho
mental condition of Harry K. Thaw
takes a decided change for the better
shortjy no effort will be made by his
lawyers to have him released from
Matteawan for some time. This very
Important development came today In J
a statment relative to the divorce pro-
ceelngs brought by Mrs. Evelyn Nesblt
Thaw to annul her marriage to Thaw
on the ground that he was Insane when
she married him and that he Is Insane
at the present time.
Thaw's stay In tho state asylum for
the Insane at Matteawan depends more
or less now upon the outcomo of Ev-
olyn's suit. If the fact Is established
in this latest litigation that Thaw 1b
sane at the present timo he will be
liberated from Matteawan without the
necessity of a commission. It was said
today that therQ would not be oven an
attempt on tho part of Thaw's counsel
to have hjra liberated until the annul-
ment suit commenced by Mrs. Thaw
la disposed of
Mrs. Thaw's suit for divorce has
been brought In the supremo court and
the very earliest that It can be brought
to trial Is threo months There havo
been rumors current that some decid-
edly sensational ovldenco will bo
Drought forth at this 'litigation; but
balancing tills Is tho report that tho
entire litigation will bo very quiet and
Attorney A. RusBell Penbody who
is perhaps tho most friendly of
Thaw's counsel toward his client was
In Matteawnn yesterday and spont
some time with Thaw.
Mr Penbody said that ho would
hardly be Justified In going Into court
at this time and asking for tho re-
leaso of his cllont This was explained
to Mrs. Mary Copoly Thaw Harry's
mother before she departed for Pitts-
twrg. Prior to that Airs Thaw tho
elder entertained high hopes that her
son might be liberated at onco. While
Mrs. Thaw the mother remalndil In
New York principally on that account
ljer presence hero was needed more- or
less on account of tho suit Instituted
Tho Interview yesterday between
Thaw and Mr Peabody Is said to have
been a very violent ono and Thaw re-
called to tho lawyer that he Is receiv
ing a. vast feo and should bo actlvo
Jn getting hlSellent released.

Littleton Ont of Case.
Thaw's lawyers' still have under re-
tainer five alienists. AH ol them have
visited Thaw and will continued to do
Another new development In tho
case today is the fact that Martin W.
Littleton who defended tho young
PIttsburger in hl3 second trial for tho
shooting of Stanford "White Is now
out of fae case entirely. Former As-
Istant District Attorney Daniel ORell-
ly has also severed his connection
with Thaw. However is he "UU re-
tained by Mrs. Thaw.

"WILL GET AFTER THE
SOCIAL CLUBS FOR TAXES.
AUSTIN March 24. Secretary of
StateDavie has evolved a scheme
whereby he hopes to collect between
$5000 and $10000 taxes from the sev-
eral 'sociahclubs' heretoforo chartered
and now In existence In Texas. These
clubs were formally chartered'to con-
duct literary charitable and education-
al works but most of them conducted
social clubs where liquor was dispens-
ed. Numbers of them wero founded
and conducted In prohibition townB In
order to give their members an oppor-
tunity to secure liquor tho saloons
having been voted out. Others wero
created In wet precincts In order to
sell liquor on Sundays.
Mr. Davlo is having the list of such
concerns compared with those paying
an Internal revonuo license for the salo
of liquor. Such payment Is a' sure in-
dication that tho clubs do ongage in
the liquor business and Mr. Davie pro

each will amount to something sub-

of such clubs without capital stock un-
