to g-t up i .iemonstration which would frlghtati
Mayor Ktrong into re-ognlzing Platt'a right to

Mr. W'arwiek would probably be swept Into the
Mayoralty chair tuion th.- crest of the usual enor
mous Kepub'.l.-an majority givefl In Philadelphla, but
lo.-al nnd factlon.-! flghffl in the party ranks have
so compllcated the situation that to-night there Is a
reasonabic doubt of the c.-rtainty of his election.
The normal Hepubli.-an majority in Philadelphla on
local Issues is from H.999 to .a.OOi. and Mr. W'ar?
wiek has been forr times e>, t.-d City Sollcltor wtth
an incraaaad majority aach time, ?o that he bringB
to the polls the prestlge of an unbeaten candldate.
Th.- fa.-ilonal liKht iti ihe RefmbUcaa party waa
