The republicans of the city are on the

tlie outloot is quite favorable. We can win
the battle if we ro about it in the riglitwf y

political enemies have thrown in our way.

1I1E KEVCBUCA OUTLOOK.
The republican outlook, in this city, for
the Spring election, is good much better
than it was Monday. We have, in the re
publican ranks, a number of men. etch of
whom could boat Mr. llagan, who will
prove, before the campaign is closed, to le
anything but a strong candidate. Indeed,
Mr. Hagan is alread beaten, if the repub
licans improve their opmrtiinities and th it
thej will do this is alreadj a matter of er
tvint. Mr. Hagan has a long record as an
oTicial and a politician, that will In- plcktd

The nomination of Mr. Abram IL l.udloiv
for the maoralt, b the prohibitionists. !

it has an important bearing on the situation.
Tiediiuocrats had arranged a ver nice
noii-partlsau" programme, nominating a
democrat at the head, and several prohib

would swallow the entire ticket. Hut the i
prohibitionists who were parties to the bar
gain found that they could not deliver the
goxls. The regular, met in con ention, (
noninated the prohibitionists who had been
nrmeil b the "non-i artisans," and put

Mr. Ludlow and not for Mr. Hagan. Tiiat
Is to, the politicians in the part, but
there Is a contingent in the party who will
vote lor the good and strong n.an who will
surel be brought out b the republicans;
that is to sa, neither the "nonpartisan"

report of the interview that occurred:
Captain A. S. BushnelU of Onto, who
was chairman of the republican committee
of his state two ears ago when Judge For-
aker wa- elecUM go enmr. ha, been in New I
York for several da s. lie is a mamifac-1
turer of agricultural implements, his estab-
lishment for that purpose being one of the I
largest in the country. He is a robust mail ,
of fort-tie. with a full face, double chin. I
keen ees and iron-gra mustache. Like I
manv other Olio men !u is Inst now l-i!k- .
ing about John Sherman for president,
but he has lie ertheless a warm side for
Judge Foraker. whom he regards as a
rising man. of great prosjieets. Tins is h's
wa of putting things. "We are all for
Senator Sherman in Ohio. It would bo im-
iHsibIe for us to be for an one else. He is
the great statesman ot the lluckee state,
and we are disposed to support him for the
presidency against the held. There has a! -
waslHfn a strong Blaine seutiinent in the
state, but it has neer antagonized Mr.
Sherman. Judge Foraker has a great man
friends, some of whom are urging hlui to go
to the front, but his best friends realize that
his wisest course Is to remain quiet and let
Mr. Sherman haveallthestrengthtliat Ohio
can li e hi.n These friends understand
vt rv thoroughly that if the con ention next
ear shimld drift awa from the
ohl men of the part and de
cide to take up a new man. Judge
Foraker's position would then be a ery
strong one. but if he should antagonize Mr
Sherman it would be materially weakened.
I here has been a great deal of talk that
Judge Foraker is permitting the use of Ins
name to break down Sherman witii the idea
of being second on the ticket with Mr.
lllaine. There is nothing at all in tins, be
cause Judge Foraker's friends do not want
him to be nominated for iie president
They know that it would be to Ids political
Injury. These is no future for the man who
accepts the iee presidency, unless in some
such castas President Arthurs a contin
gency that no one would eer think of cal
culating upon. There is a feeling in Ohio
that Senator Sherman is growing in fa or
o er the count'."
