have been sadly divided for
some time. And the triumph of the
Sullivan Democrats at the primaries
has only increased the bitter faction
Congressman A. J. Sabath, one of
the strongest H.-H. leaders, is openly
disgusted with the Hearst-Harrison
alliance. On account of it he lost the
leadership in his own district to Ed
ward J. Novak, the Sullivan chieftain.
Sabath is still friendly to Harrison.
But the first intimation that anything
was wrong with him and Andy Law
rence, -Hearst's local representative,
came wfien the word was slipped over

The plan greatly pleased Hearst
and his lieutenants, so they scram
