Tho reception 'was a non-partisan
affair. Republican titato officials wero
as vigorous in extending wclcoirw no

who did not appear to bo displeased
at tho task imposed upon him by law,
that of being the official greeter of the
Incoming Governor, was Secretary of

Thero wero great doings at the
ICxccutivo Mansion last night, it was
tho thirteenth birthday of Walter

Naturally, thero Is n great deal of

doubt the messago will follow closely
the speeches the Governor-elect made
every night during th closing week of
his campaign in New York City.
)n the question of Prohibition the
platform Is clear enough, favoring
light wines and beer subject to a
referendum. The Governor-elect pur
poses to give the people a chance to
take part In that referendum. He
has hud more conflicting advice on
this subject than on any other, but
his policy of adhering to the platform
allows him to Institute only one course
However, the Legislature has aorni
thing to say In this matter.
The reception yesterday carried only
one sad feature. That crow out of the
Inulstonco of the leader of tho 10th
Regiment Band that his men should
play tho sidewalks of New York as
they were marching through ankle
deep slush up Stnto Street hill which,
for tho benefit of New Yorkors who
liavo never been In Albany, may be
described as steeper than the
Amsterdam Avenuo hill between 126th
and 116th Streets. About tho only
muslclanB who wero able to operate
their Instruments on this climb were
tho men who played the drams.
