WANTS TWO MEN.
An Important caucus of Republicans
of the Fifth District representing two
separate factions, wns held In Repub
lican headquarters last night for (hi
purpose of talking over the situation
and deciding provisionally upon men
for the Legislature, in general and the
Senate In particular.
One of those present at the caucus
was Senator Achl who, after he had
been asked flatfooted as to his position
In the county and municipal govern
ment matter, answered that he was In
favor of tho move but only by popular
vote. Ho would not consent to too
much power being placed In the hands
of the Mayor.
This declaration came as a Biirprise
to those present, for Senator Achl has
always been put down as one ot thogj
who would work tooth and nail for the
defeat of any measure looking toward
county and municipal government
What occurred to chango his mini
could not be ascertained.
At all events, the caucus was a
friendly ono and ono point was prai.tl
cully decided on, to wit, that the Fifth
District shall have the naming ot two
out of tho three men for Senators on
