The state maintained that WTiillow jook wood alcohol fin- the purp6se|of self destruction and i|oi as a medicine for rheumatism as Ije tcstied and was therefore guilty of perjury. i Quite a number of people were in Ibe court room! when the verdict was read.

Hearst Is xpected to deliver tiie "keynote speech" of the campaign from that party's point of; view, was generally believed by (he leaders who di.scufi.'J- ed the matter today. It is understood that In his addr€-ss before tho convention Mr. Hearst wilt present another installment of letters dealing with the Hasicell-Monnett controversy. Clarence |J. Sheam appears to leail the candtddates for the nomination for governor. Mr. Hearst has also been talked of in connection with (the head of the ticket/ but it was learned from supposedly ofliclal sources that he would not accept the nomlhatiun were it tendered to him. The only two other names so far mentioned fo.- gubematoria! honors are tjhose of Reuben R. Lyon, of Bath, X. Yi. and Henry A. Powell of Broolf- lyn. The .latter has given out a state- mem to t^e effect that he would de- dino any place on the ticket. It was mint rid today; that Mr. Hearst will abandon his speaking campaign for the national ticket and concentrate his efforts in i this sUte ;wbere he will conduct a vigorous dgtit especially for the stsite ticket.
