He was reinstated this after-

inked out a week ago. He was

Jamuel H. Collom, president of

During the week of banishment,

In making bis totally uaexpec-

' The charges formulated against
Tilden because of the articles he

the basis of banning him last

adding that Tilden will have to
answer them when he gets home.
