Sherman Talks Freely.
Senator Sherman's possible candidacy
for the presidency made him much sought
after by those anxious to learn his views
on the withdrawal of Blaine. Contrary
to his usual reticence on mntters of such
vital political interest. Sherman did not
hesitate to txpress himself on the Blnine
letter. He said that he ilid not consider
Blaine out of the presidential race. As
for himself, he said, the use of his name
as a candidate for the m ination was un
authorized. "T am not a candidate," he

publican in the house from Minnesota,
