yesterday in a way that would have worn

Square Hotel mo't of the day, until It wa
time to take the train for his Long Island
toi.r. He gae long interviews to his
campaign managers, district leaders, to
reporters, and others, who called upon
him on important business. He sroke
at three ctowded meetings on Long Island,
atterwatd returning to speak in this city.
He did not retiie until about midnight.
Those who were neai him last night say
tluttMfr-eniec on the vrge ot exhaustion.
Sheer will power kept 1dm going. It Is
recalled that. In his speech atTTllishlng,
he seemed to speak in premonition of his
approaching end. But his depression was
speedily conquered. Throughout the day
he wis fheerful and resolute and seemed
sustained b a perfect confidence in "vic
tory. Some of his talks with reporters
show how l.e -viewed the struggle.

better and went back to the stage and re

Tom Johnson said: "Mr. George seamed
to show vonJerful vigor up to hist night.
He had hr-en working on his new book for
a long tnre. and the death of his married
daughter had kept him gloomy. There

unanimously changed 11s mind, and decided
to nominate Henry George, the son. That

The numbers listened attentively to the
reading of the statement until the reader
