Frederick f. Tanner announced jtm-te-ftlny
his Intention to realgn nit clwlr
man (if the Itopublh'nn Stnto commltteo
at the next meeting; of that body to be
held probably the latter part of next
II r. Tanner sent a letter to the mem
ber of the committee, setting forth his
plans and saying tho duties of his law
buslnesri had become so great that he
could not give alt the tlmo necessary to
the management of the affairs of tho
Bartrand II. Hnell. Representative In
CongTSM from Ut. I-awrente county and
en of the ablest Republican of the
younger generation, will be chosen as Mr.
Tanner's successor, unless the plan of
the leaders change before next week.
The chairmanship, without doubt, will po
to an up-State man, and for that reason
K. J. 11. Kracke, Bridge Commissioner,
Is regarded as out of the running. Mr.
Kracke will probably succeed KiiKer.o
Lamb Richards aa Ranking .Superintend
ent In July.
Another man mentioned for the chair
manship is State Senator George Argot
alnger of Rochester. J. Henry Walter
of Hyracuse and ex-Stato Senator
I'ancher of Salamanca also have been
mentioned, but the position will In all
likelihood go to Representative Hnell. a
warm friend of Gov. Whitman's.
Thar was some argument last summer
that the chairmanship should go to a
man outside of New York city. Soma
up-Staters asserted that the Republican
organlxatlon was becoming; top-heavy
with men from the city. Mr. Bnell's ap
pointment undoubtedly will go far to off
t any such cry.
Snell Just Reelected.
Mr. Snell, who was born In 1870 nnd
waa graduated from Amhenrt (CIov.
Whitman's alma mater), haa been a
I member of the State commltteo Mnce
1904. Ilo has paper, power and nankins
Interests up State, lie wna reelected to
Congress In November from the Thirty
first Congress district.
Chairman Tanner, In his letter an
nouncing his Intention to resign, gives
an account of his stewardship and tells
how tho Republicans won because they
burled factional differences. Ilo show

But this .iliinc dot not explain wny
New York, generally classed as a 'doubt

while New Hampshire, Ohio, Kansas.
California anil others, generally classed
aa safely Republican, went Democratic.
It la because we burled minor differences
and presented a M'lld fiont that we met
with success. To this harmony nnd to the

"The Republican party In 1912 became
a minority party, and had lost control
of both tho national and State govern
ment. Since that time a Republican
Governor has been elected and reelected,
and practically a two-thirds majority
obtained In botli branches of the State
Legislature. We now have twenty-six
out of forty-three member In tho lower
house of Congress, and both United

In speuklng of the fccllnc of tho men

As the band played "She's a Dan

The crowd : "doah I She I pretty I"
It took about an hour to get these
Introductions accomplished and tho
rivalry between the big producing com
panies was so keen. I'athe striving to
put It all over the Universal, nnd the
universal hujtllng to excel tho World
Film, and the Vltagraph trying to outdo
the Mutual, that scarcely a girl star
was able to escape or evade the trying
experience. Meanwhlto tho 7,000 movlo
fan hanked around the band stand nnd
beat their hands together ns some of
the best looking girls In America mado
their little bows nnd scurried away.
For the next few hours there were
stunts. The Pnthe people exhibited a
make-believe gigantic rooster, with
Corene Uxiell driving the advertising

And finally the motion picture magnates
selected two or threo lucky ones, who
wero told to report at this or that Mudlo
on tho chance of picking up J.'i a day as

There waa dancing, of course, while
the band played tho-.n seductive Ha
