the complications surrounding this se

to Mr Suler 'k political future in this
Stale l'or that matter Mr Sulzcr finite
readily agreed with the comments of'
It was asr ertauied that all sorts of
influences from tliititieial and political
nources were brought to bear to-day on
Mr Suler in an eftort to ascertain exactly
whai js to m ins decision in the matter.
For a reply the Governor-elcet. made it
clar to all that he and he alone had the
future or Mr Willcu in his las-ping.
For the liit tune the colle;iguts and
political associates of Mr Sulzer several
of the latter are here and many of whom
Iravo been here Mated it to lie their be
lief that Mr. Willco.it is not to be re -appointed,
nnd in this they allowed that
Mr. Su!.er ns Govurnor would bo abso

ixilled attention to the fact that Gov.
Sulzcr can retain Commissioner Wlllcox
in hi place by allowing him to hold over
and by not sending the name of his suc
cessor tu the State Senate Uy that act
.Mr Sul.er could retain Mr. WillcoT in
his place during Mr Sul.er's term of
oflice as Governor.
On the other hand the Democrats who
have conferred with Mr. Sul.er called
attention to the eiially important fuct
that If Gov. Sul.er sends the name of any
Democrat to the State Senate on February
1 next who was not agreeable to Charles
F Murphy, Democratic leader of tho
Jjiate he could not bo conlirmed. To
