State committee will Join with legal and
other organisations to pick candidates to

Take Major Oat of Raea.
ThOre was little doubt yesterday that
the Progressive plan, if it meets with the
reception the leaders expect, will take
Mr. Oaynor out of the race for Mayor
of Now Tork. The Progressives have
not asked the Mayor how he teels about
it, but they think he will not refuse.
They hope that one or both of the other
parties will Indorse their choice.
Before CoL Houeevelt left for the South
west many weeks ago he printed in the
Outlook a suggestion that the Progres
sives fuse with the other parties on two
such men as Marlin J. Keogh of New
Rochelle. Justice of the Supreme Court
and Frank (.'. Iaughlin of the Appellate
Division in this department. He had Jus
tice Keogh in mind for Chief Judge.
Hut friends of Justice Keogh ooJd yes
terday that he does not want to go U
Albany. He does not feeJ that he coull
leare his place in Westcheotor county.
There was little doubt yesterday that Col.
Hooaevelt will fall In with the Idea of sub
stituting Msyor Oaynor for Justice Keogh
in his list of candidates for the Court of
Praise From Roosevelt.
Soon after Col. Roosevelt wrote his
article In the Outlook he met Mayor Oay
nor on the train when the Mayor was
coming to town from St. Jamea. The
Colonel told him that he was familiar
wKli his, decisions while Mr. Oaynor was
a Hupreme Court Justice In Brooklyn I
and liked their spirit. They were liberal .
through and through, he-aald, and war-j
ranted the suport of the Progressives.
The two men who will be suggested
to Mr. Roosevelt to-day are Mr. Oaynor
and Justice 1-aughUn, a Oemocrat and
a Itepublloan. The Progressive meeting

Republican special Dtate convention at

Two important amendments' were
adopted to-day. cine had to do with the
reserve nature of the bill and the other1
related to loans authorised by "country
J banks" on agricultural real estate. The
latter proposition excited a long discus- !
slon. As the bill was presented to the
caucus It provided for nine months loans
on farm lands. The time of such loans
was extended to twelve months In aecoid-
anao with representations made by sav-
Ings banks and other institutions that
deal in such property.
