The morning conreronco was attended
by seventy-five woll-known Republicans,
most or them classed as being In ravor
or Senator Depew. but there wero also
not a row who are not believed to be op
posed to his candidacy. Tho speechos in
the conrercncc wore almost without ex

ceived from Cornelius N. Bliss that he
sympathized with the object of tho con
ference, and had spoken his sentiments at
tho so-called Odell-Black meeting the
Deprecated a Fight.
Nearly all of tho speeches definitely
deprecated anything In the nature or a
fight, and the plea for a harmonious so
lution of the Senatorshlp characterized
tho conference. Chairman Barnes, thc
first speaker, spoke In ravor or Mr.
Dcpcws re-election, declaring that to rc
movo the Senator "arter his long eorvlco
would be a disturbing ractor In tho
politics of the State."
Senator Raines devoted a considerable
portion of his extended remarks to a
declaration or cordiality toward Gov.
Odell and Ex-Gova Black. He held thc
weiraro or tho Republican party to bo of
Mr. Woodruff spoke several times, al
ways strongly Tor Mr. Dcpow's re-election,
