differences and preventing a breach
botween tho followors of Aldridgennd
Fish but If that is the nlm it would
bo hardly successful for already
there is friction over whom shall bo
Mr. riutt's running mate. Thofriendu
of Mr. Piatt have coupled the name of
John U. Sulclierd of HuiTalo with tho
olllco of lieutenant govarnor nnd this
has given offense to tho followers of
Mr. Woodruff of ilroolclyn ho think
lie would have been tho choice had
the Piatt boom not luivo been
launched. Mr. Snxton's frlonds are
not averse to having hisnaino coupled
with Mr. Piatt's on the ticket and
Mr. Saxton is quoted sv passing en-
comiums upon Mr. Plattts the logical
nominee of tho party.
Mark llanna it is alleged has
spoken very favorably of the nomina-
tion of Mr. Plait As to whether Mr.
Piatt has changed his attitude from
refusal to consideration of nocoptnnoo
ho said himself last night: "I have
not receded from y position of last
night Tho pressure brought lo hear
upon upon me has boon very groat
and I simply have said that I will not
give final decision on the entire ques-
tion till to-morrow morning."
IJy some this is construed to mean
that Mr. Piatt will reconsider and ac-
cept but there are others equally as
positive that ho will not accept All
of the candidates are hllll in the field
but are waiting in an inaotlvo state
for Mr. Piatt to make somo announce-
ment. Even if lie dcclinos again thoro
is a possibility that there will be n
Btampcdo in tho convention and tho
nomination will bo forced upon him
But if Mr. Piatt accepts ho will not
receive either a unanimous nomina-
tion or a nomination bv acclamation
Somo mombirs from New York city
have openly asserted that they will
not voto for Mr. Piatt and that will
necessitate a ballot It is n situation
full of uneasiness here and of great
portent to the people.
Tho platform has been prepared and
has been read to tho loaders and un-
proved by them. It Is not lengthy
but approves of tho work of the last
legislature. Of the Raines law it will
say that it is the most effective law
with regard to tho liquor traffic Uiat
has been enactod in an American
state; has reduced the number of
saloons and taken tho saloons out of
politics; turned into the treasury

mend tho administration of Governor
