''"'  Tire   Thaw,  case   is', attracting as.  much' attention as did the notorious  ; Durant   trial   of  a   few   years ago.  Following   is ���' a   criticism   on    the  ���������Thaw    incident,    by.   the,.Toronto  7 Globe:-���"'i'he   Thaw7 trial- is   still  holding the chief place of interest-in  the  U-.uted Slates press... Canadian  ���papers,   however,    are   not", giving  much space to its details, as there is  110   need.     "It  is   a  story   of vice,  'sin,-depravity   and violence.    It is  the   tragedy of a moth, a flame and  a   gust   of    wind."     As   the   trial  proceeds the papers continue I'p serve  up   to   their   readers   its   revolting  details.     There is a certain   class of  papers   published   thai   daily   seek  sensational   material and  send it to  their   readers ; under   flaring,,  headlines.    They   have  created  the ap-  p.-tile for material of thai character,  and nin.M satisfy the desires of their  readers  at   all   costs.    The   Thaw  trial furnishes ready made just what  is needed, aud as a result the yellow  press   is   making' the    most   of  il.  Those   who   are   acquainted    with  United   States judicial methods are  not   surprised   at    lire    tactics    of  Thaw's  lawyers   in   the present in-  Mai.ce.
