Van Sant, former governor of Minne

of Indiana by a vc'.e of 587 to 156.
Mrs. Jennie L. Berry of Ies Moinea.

elected over t, llelle Harris of Kan

Both elections were held In execu

der of business did not provide for the
election of officers, but the Increasing
departures of delegates warned the
encampment that an early choice
would be necessary to secire a full
expression of the will of the majority.
In addition to Commander Van Sant,
the following officers were elected:

THAW BACK TO THE ASYLUM
Court Dec'ded That the Mind of Stan
ford White's Slayer Has Not
White Plains, New York. The
state of New York won a complete
victory over Harry K. Thaw when
Justice Isaac N. Mills decided that the
slayer of Stanford White was still In
sane and sent htm back to the asylum
for the criminal Insane at Matteawan.
Not one of the many contentions
made by Thaw In the three weeks of
his recent hearing was sustained. He
is, however, somewhat better off than
before he brought the present suit
because Justice Mills In his decision
suggests and the suggestion amounts
practically to orders that Thaw at
Matteawan be restored to the privileges
be enjoyed In the first three months
of hl stay there, and that his mother
be .allowed all the possible privileges
and treated with every consideration
when she calls to see him.

guilty of soliciting liquor orders and

to hand their former liquor customers
or persons likely to buy liquors circu

The druggist was to receive 20 per

wholesale house told the druggist that
they could not be prosecuted for these
transactions. The attorney general,
