The p ilitieiaus to whom thi* conversation lins

haS "KatatinSl party, Sud that party in poss'-sion of
both H"U*es of ?ho Legislature, fears that there
may lie "a hitch '' BS Its organization. Apparently
he is unaware of his own political or ofihial power ;
that s ox re I a. from him would do away instan?

TUE l*Kf?rON8E OF GOVKKNOIt CLKVKLAND.
Governor Cleveland responded, apparently speak
big extemporaneously. His manner of speaking
showed that bo had committed the speech to mem?
ory. His voice was of tho same good quality aa
Governor Cornell's, Heir nnd powerful, and every
word he nttered could be distinctly heard. He had a
lnwyoT-liko manner, once or twice rmsing his right
hand and making a gesture as though ho were
addressing a jtny. He spoke as follows:
Guvek.mjh (oiiNKLL: I um profoundly grateful fat
