FIND IT SAFE
TO FREE THAW
Commissioners Make Report on
DECLARE HE'S NOW ALL RIGHT
Federal Judge Aldrich Is Told That
Man Who Killed Stanford White Is
Better and Would Not Be Menace.
Harry K. Thaw would not be a pub
lic menace if he were released ou bail,
according to the report of the coin
mission appointed by Federal Judge
Aldrich at Concord, N. II., to inquire
Into the stale of Thaw's mentality.
The report says the commission
finds Thaw Is not now aflllcted with
any of the mental disease from which
he was suffering when he slew Stan
The commission further states by
its written report that its members
have formed a unanimous and posi
tive opinion as to the state of Thaw's
mind at the time of the homicide, but
refrain from expressing that opinion
because the scope of i's Inquiry does
not. permit of an opinion on this point.
The report Is signpd by all members
of the commission. In its opening page
of the somewhat exhaustive report
the commissioners say that they went
carefully over the case book of the
Matteawan hospital covering the
period from Feb. 1, 1908, to Aug. 17,
1913, when Thaw escaped.
It also examined transcripts oT all
other legal proceedings, including
various direct and cross examinations
of Thaw for homicide. The commis
sion refers to the public hearing which
it gave on Jan. 7 at which only wit
nesses in favor of Thaw appeared and
then concluded its report as follows:
"To determine the immediate ques
tion before us our Inquisition was
necessarily directed to these points:
"First, careful physical examination
to determine the presence or absence
of structural of functional disturb
ance of the nervous system.
"Second, the conduct of IJarry K.
Thaw since his committal to the Mat
teawan state Hospital on February,
190S, to the present time.
"Third, whether he Is now suffer
ing from such a disease of the mind
or whether his condition of mind may
be of such character as to predispose
to acts of violence independently of
the narrower question whether su"h
acts actually have been committed
since his confinement or not.

officials of the federal penitentiary
contained in data received at the do
puitment from Congressman Howard
Attorney General McReynolds gave
out tliis information, intimating that
a searching Inquiry would be niad!.
The charges that Congressman Howard
alleges are not considered as of great
importance by Mr. Mclleynolds, but it
was felt by the department that there
should be a thorough probe.
"The evidence I presented to Mr.
Mclteynolds was of so serious nature
that a rigid investigation must re
sult," said Mr. Howard. "I shall see
that the affair is not 'whitewashed.'
Among accusations made by persons
said to be familiar with prison condi
