P. J. Cary and John Rtnck Send
Joint Telegram to Chairman
Cannon Delegates Return.
P. J. Cary and John Bfatck got their
heads together last evening while
reading the bulletins from the front
at Springfield and agreed on a plan of
action that would settle the guberna
torial question, imparting their rec
ommendation in a j int telegram sent
to Speaker Joe Cannon, the chairman
of the convention. Doubtless it was
on this that the convention finally de
liberated. Mayor William McConochie, M. I.
Morris. Y. II. Lange and ti. II. Rich

county delegates, returned home la.-t
evening, having wearied of the strug

vote its whole strength for Lowden.
"There is not a man in the whole
convention, and there arc sonic pretty
big politicians there, who is able to
forecast the outcome of the contest
for the nomination for governor," the
mayor said this morning. "It simply
has resolved itself into a test of en
durance. Each candidate is holding
his delegates as closely as he did be
fore they were released yesterday
morning; The candidates sit in front
and keep their eyes straight on the
de legates when they vote to see that
there is no double-crossing. It is won
derful the bold that is retained on the
delegates. Such loyalty was never be
fore witnessed in a convention in my
memory. Every coup known to the
game of politics, and there is almost
an inexhaustible number of them, has
been resorted to without result. Here
tofore the big fellows have been able
to agree. Hut this time they are up
in the air. In the Adams county dele
gation, which has 20 votes, there are
sitting as delegates is f the ap
pointees of Yates. The governor has
his appointees in nearly every delega
tion in t he convent ion. of course they
must stick. To desert him means thai
they will lose their positions. So you
cannot blame them for holding out
for their man. Combinations of all
sorts have been tried, but they have
failed. The candidates, silting on the
platform in a row. reminded me of so
many men each endeavi ring to out
shine the other in deportment. The
first one to misbehave will lose out."
