and Clarence J. Shearn, chief counsel
for Thaw. What change is content- |

Judge Keogh wishes to call In al'on- j
ists of his own choosing, as it is taken
to be a foregone conclusion that three
of the alienists now concerned W'll
say that Thaw is sane and three will
say he is not.
It is thought also that Judge Keogh
may desire to have Thaw taken nut of
Matteawan and confined In Bloom'ng

two mouths so that he may be watched
by a commission named for the pur?
To-morrow morn'ng it Is expected

hove to during the tempest when the

were ripped off by the sea. To save
the masts from going by the board,
which would probably have meant the
loss of the vessel, the Stranger ran
before the storm for a distance of 10U j

none of whom lived at the hotel und
j none of whom had ever boen yaccl- i
I tinted, had contracted the disease from
I contact with the one llrst affected,

to the smallpox hospital. All em?
ployes were Immediately vaccinated,

hereabouts taut the Republicans will
St'ck to the organization Hiid line up
for President Taft when It cornea to
the test. The fact la that Republicans
hereabouts seemed afraid, or at least
very backward, In coming out for
Roosevelt before the convention, There
was scarcely a corporals guard got?
ten together for the organization of
i the Roosevelt club that was under?
taken several weeks before the State
convention. Republicans expect that
the national committee will declare
the position of national commltteeman
irom North Carolina, to which Hon.
Richmond Pearson was elected by the
State convention vacant, on account of
Pearson having deserted the party to
Join the new Roosevelt progressives. In
) that event. It Is expected that. If he
will take It back, the place will be
I given to 15. c. Duncan by the national
committee, the committee having the
i power to till vacancies. The friends of
Mr, Duncan insist that he is again lit
! special favor with President Taft, and
that be lint, completely eclipsed State
