Davis was asked to appoint a lunacy commission to take charge of the Income of Thaw in tills Htate'and provide for the sup-! port of the w.lfe. Mr- Thaw's income Is said to be $60,000 a year. Thaw claims; that the verdict of the jury in New York State was not a finding that h? was Insane, and that the sentence con? fining lilm at Matteawan was statu? tory entirely and not a proceeding an to his lunacy. 11 r- claims that the fait that he Is still coniined In Matteawan Hospital, under tin- order of court, does not judicially or tn any way es? tablish his present Insanity. The an? swer alleges that the petition asks the court to do whit it has no au? thority to do. In the second part of the answer Thaw states: "Your affiant Is not at pr?sent In? sane, lie <s o,uite capable of attend? ing to his own, affairs, and does at? tend ti his own' affairs. He transacts his own husinean. If there was ever any derangement mentally the affiant has entirely recovered from It. and is now In the possession of all of his mental faculties."

HEAVY ARTILLERY TRAINED ON TAFT (Continued From First i'age. i have given orders to his fvlcnds to push Champ Clark from now on. Should the Democratic National Con? vention, however, fall to nominate Clark or some one regarded by Mr. Hearst a-s progressive, Mr. Hearst gives plain notice that he Is either In the Held to lead a third party or will support some good man representing progressive ideas and thought. Silent ns to Wilson. ?Whether Mr. Hearst regards Gov? ernor Wilson, of New Jersey, as a pro? gressive no one can tell from any utter r.ni,-- of his. His unstinted praise of Champ Clark points to his Intention 10 make the Mlssourlan the choice of the progressives for the Democratio nomination. Ifavlng led the Clark forces and Clark falling to get the nomination, with the progressives In control of the convention, the figure of Hearst would loom up as the man for 'he progres? sives to rally to. it was pointed out to-day. Hearst, It Is said, undoubtedly will have many personal friends and supporters in the convention . From his own Stale of New York he could command little strength, If the Tammany men control the delegation, but from California, llliuuis und other States he will have admirers and parti? sans ready to rush to him as a dark, horse, It Is even intimated that Mr. Hearst would not be displeased with a ticket headed by Clark for President and himself for Vice-I^-esidcnt. Whatever his own political aspira? tions or his ambitions for others, Mr. Hearst has cut himself loose from any possibility of sympathy with President Taft and the Republicans. The New York man Is again In the Democratic (obi, at least until the Democrats fail, If they do. to nut up a progressive can? didate for the presidency. There Is now little ujuestlon that Mr. Hears! and his papers will keep up a hot light and that in New York an ef? fort will be made to head off Tammany and its forces and control the New York Democratic delegation. Tho light may go so far, It was suggested to-day, as to bring about a contesting delegation from New York. "Just Say" HORLICK'S It Means Original and fienulna MALTED MILK The Food-drink for All Agas.
