Two Im portant meetings are on the program today fur the sub-committee of the Uemocratlc national committee. The first session was held early In the day and only matters of routine in connection with the convention were taken up.

All of the subcommittee, with the exoep tlon of Mciiraw, of West Virginia, and Howell of Georgia, were present fit the meeilngs today. Both these were represented by proxy. Those participating in the two conferences were Chairman Taggart, Secretary Woodson. linger Sullivan, of Illinois, R. M. Johnson of Texas. Jame. C. lahlman of Nebraska. Norman C.

Since Thaw obtained his release from Matteawan asylum on a writ of habeas corpus and his case was brought before Justice Morschauser to determine whether he Is now sane or whether he should bo returned to the asylum, an effort has been made to have the justice order him conilned In a private Institution. The action of the Justice In declaring Thaw still in a condition which necessitates his confinement was a hard blow to Thaw, for he exj ectcd to be declared sane. Following this decision It was expected that the Justice would order Thaw recommitted to Matteawan and In anticipation of this action the sec ond writ 'of habeas corpus was ob tained. . ' This anticipation by Thaw and tils attorney proved correct, for District Attorney Mack presented to the Just in this morning a formal order of re commitment to Matteawan and Just Ice Morschauser promptly signed the order. He would have returned Thaw to the asylum at once had not the new writ been secured. Thaw Is delighted at tho turn his affairs have taken, as he believes that If he can get his case before a Jury it will now declare him sane. BUSINESS MAN HEADS THE SUNDAY SCHOOL ARMY JOH.V STITES.
