Invitations to the patt.v's get together

up State will he represented about evenly.
It looks as if the much advirtistd twin

will not materialize. Such at bast was
the tiellef at State he-idouartcrs vestcrday,

Declines tn Make
Mr, Ilarnes ald yesterday that he had '
no Idea what the conferees would dlscuts (
or do that their wishes would govern ab
solutely. Am to his own purposes be said.
"Whatever I hive to i.a.v will be -aid to
morrow" It Is understood that he will
not oppofe radical suggestion or paits
policy und legislative piiuiamine If the
spirit of tho other Republicans seems to
tun In that direction.
National policies will be discussed lit- I
tie, if at all. The conference will con- j
centrate on plans fl)r legislation lu Al
bany. Some of the delegates are leady to
demand that the Republican Assemblv
Investigate what they call abuses under
the Democratic administration. They are
likely to ask that the "barv canal scan
dal" be looked Into first of all,
They will point out that when the
Hughes administration emled, the Re
publican State Ihiglncr repotted that the
canal was about sf per cent, minpletul
and that the whole cost would be les
than tlm lliio.iuio.iiiiii appropriation Hut
