MATTEAWAN, N. T.. Aug. IS. Harry
K. Thaw ate his supper tonight at the
Matteawan State Hospital for the Crimi
nal Insane. Tomorrow the slayer of
Stanford White will resume the monoto

Superintendent Lamb, of the asylum,
issued the following; statement tonight:
There will be no change at all regard
ing Thaw'a Incarceration here. He will
be subjected to the same rules as before
he left to go to White Plains. He will
have a special room, not because he Is
Harry Thaw, but for the reason that this
hospital wa buljf to accommodate BOO

which split on the graft prosecution
question. From the last figure obtain
able tonight It looks as though the
Crocker ticket would have a decided
majority over the Mauiy men, the pro
portion being about 11 to 7.
Crocker's Plurality Small.
In "the Mayoralty fight. Crocker se
cured a majority over Byron Mauzy of
698. his majority having been largely cut
down by the time the last vote was In.
Crocker's total was 8761, and that
Mauzy 8130. The small majority is
charged up to the fact that Countryman
cut heavily into the vote of Crocker and
that the Union Labor men who registered
as Republicans were instructed to vote
for Mauzy as being a weaker candidate
for P. H. McCarthy to fight.
Dr. Leland took the Democratic nom
ination over Supervisor McLeran by 1S3,
and McCarthy's majority on the Union
Labor ticket was 8446. j
Prosecutors Claim lctory.
The graft prosecution is claiming a
great victory for Heney, because he se
cured the Democratic nomination and
says that he will win out in the coming
political battle. Astute Judges of politics,
however, iigure that theAsslstant District
Attorney had a hard row to hoe.
As between the Mayoralty candidates,
Crocker is looked upon as a favorite,
although It 'is believed that McCarthy will
make a hard fight and that trie Union
Labor vote will be worth considering,
even though the Schmitz exposures were
of such recent date. Leland and Crocker
are more than likely to draw from each
other and McCarthy might skip In be

that an acquitted man ought not to be

a personal appeal was made to him.

that this illegal restraint of an acquitted
man, known by everybody to be abso

matter how vindictive those who would
attempt to default Justice may be.

CHICAGO, Aug. 18. Ten persons were

the decision of a rather stormy meet
ing held today by the exposition offi
cials, including President Chilberg,

mittee, who drew up the programme
that has aroused a storm of protest
from exposition people and local citi

with the President's own wishes.
''When I saw Mr. Taft lit Cincinnati
he expressed his willingness to give us
one day at the exposition, but at that
time and since then by wire he has ex
pressed a desire to spend the second day
at Seattle In rest and recuperation.
Because Mrj Taft is a lover of golf, the
outing at the Country Club was
planned. I believe the people of the
Northwest will have ample time and
chance to see and hear the President
In one" day, as he desires."
Other exposition officials maintain
their attitude of Insisting that Mr.
Taft's visit be made more of a public
affair, and that he spend his time at
the fair and in meeting and speaking
to the people of the Northwest.
