The abovo statements como
pretty near to settling tho ques
tions which have been agitating
the Democrats for tho last few
days, and nio Important In view
of tho fact that it Is thus made,
known who will oppose the re-
cently nominated Republican
cliques will cost him so many votes
that a Democratic candidate would
have it fairly easy road to victory.
Thoy figure that Watson Is ono of
their stiougest men, and for this rea
son they bcltovo that he can be elect
ed for the Senate, while It Is figured
that Thayer, who nt the last election
was defeated by Catlicart In the rnco
for the same office by about SCO votes,
would be able to mnko up this differ
ence this year. On the other hand,
this plan will meet with opposition
on the part of some prominent Demo
crats, who believe that a blid in tho
hand is better than two in tho bush.
Democrats Will Caucus
This evening the Democrats will
hold a caucus preparatory to tho
County and Dlstilct Convention
which will open nt 10 n. m. tonior

arrange things so that there will bo

considered far the stionger candidate
by his friends, though Howell's nomi
nation is being urged by II. T. Moore
and others, who contend that n hnolo

There is no doubt but that the
Democrats will adopt Miles In favor of
open voting, ns has been tho rase In
the past, and this will save n great
deal of time In the convention. It Is
expected that all the voting will be

Tho matter of George Kaea Is still

the fuel that this long work can bet
