Hanlsbuig. Pa., Jan, 3 That the
Wnnamnker campaign would end In
the Philadelphia merchant's defeat has
been generally conceded from the be
ginning by those hav lng practical acquaintance-
with politics, but many
who foiesaw tills huve been surprised

At the caucus on Tuesday night Holes
Penrose will lecelve at the ratio of
two nnd a half votes to John Wunn
makei's one At 10 o'clock tonight US
positive Pentose pledges had been re
ceived and when the break-up comes
natuial diift will do the rest. The
Wanamakei camp has been unable to
locovei from the bomb exploded In It
by theTIllaid exposure. It Is admitted
on eveiy hand that that bomb exting
uished what little hope of vlctoiy Leach
and Van Valkenbuig hnd eet had,
and to cap the climax. Leach and Van
Vulkenbuig had to go&pJtQ a quanol
on Saturday evinlnBlnthecourse of
which each blamed the other1 for the
campaign's disastrous tei initiation and
each tlneatened to withdraw unless the
othir was bounced.
"The meanest thing yet said about
me In the papeis," said K A. Van Valk
enburg toda, "was an assertion in one
of the papers that I was a lieutenant

as an unpaidonable Insult."
MACKEY AN OBJECT OV PITY.
If pity can be felt for a man like Di.
N C. Mackey It deseives to be expend
ed now. While Congressman-elect Con
nell was walking up to his ioom at the
Commonwealth hotel Satuiday even
ing ho met Mackey unexpectedly face
to face. Mackey stai ttd as If he had
seen a ppllceman and turned a dozen
colors In as many seconds. Soon after
waril he sent emlssmles with over
tines foi foigUeness, offering to make
a complete retiactlon of the chaiges
In his lecent letter. It Is needless to
add that the ovei tut es vvete not con
sidered A little latei Representative
Farr took him in tow and steeied him
back again Into the Wanamakei camp
and he has been kept In tow ever since.
He has not been allowed a minute's
fieedom and the obvious deduction is
that the Wanamaker foices have icn
son to fear what he may say If subject
ed to a cross-examination Theie nre
rumois that he will be arrested tonight
01 tomorrow moinlng.
