Th'- large attendance, desplte the gereral b0>
llef that the present Republlcan State offlce ra
wlll ba renomlnati-d without oppoaltlOB, and a
part* piatform adopiad without serious c.mfliet,
ih avidaaea of the haarty interest taken ln the
affalra <>r the Repubtteaa party thls year by Its
rotara and leaders. Tbla evldent deslre to partlc

what haa occurred at ill the local conveatloni
for the nomination of Judgaa and membcrs of the
l.eglslature that have prectded the h ildlBg of the

worthy oandldataa for state offlcaa and an equally
worthy candldata for Prealdenl in w.rt the Re?
publlcan party wlll OOBtiBUO its prtaent control
pf New-York State and carry the State next year.
An addltlonal reason for the larare attendan.-e
at the State Conventlon, notwlthstanling the ap
parent agreement already BPOB candldates, Is
the agltatlon of the proposltlon to enlarge the
Btate CUmmlttaa The lnformal cimmlttee, of
Bhlch Cornelliis N. Rliss Is chalrman, whlch has
been puihlog tiiis suggestlin of an enlargement
r.nl a ehange of the baslfl of representation in
lt. has re.vlved encouraglng reports from tha
delegates-eleet to th* conventlon regardlng lt;
although a majority of the delegates have not
yet eonimitted themselves In Its favor. With
nearly 200 delegates favorlng the plan of enlaig
ing the Btate Commlttee, howaaar, the supporters
Of the |aaa cannot but feei pleased. They have
had to OOmbat the Innate C..nservatlsm of party
laadera of a liherai mind and the Intereated oppo
sltlon of the preaenl possesfors of the machlnery
Of tlie Republlcan party. That they have made U
mu"h baadway an t<> collact Ml rotaa in favor of
the plan of <nlarglng the Stat- Conmlttee ls,
therefore. proof that the plan has popular sup
port among the Republlcan voters. Mr. BUaa
and hls assiclates wlll enm* here and open head
quarters in rooma BO, :<2 and 54, Congress Hall,
to-morr. w for thoae who favor an enlargement
of the con.mtttee.
Thomaa C. Platt, who wlll be here to-morrow.
has, lt is said, instruoted hln lleutenants to pre
tend to accept the Biiggestlon that the State
Commlttee be enlarged, only not to accept lt for
adoptlon thls year. Mr. Platt would have a com
.nlttee appointed to *leep over the matter for a
year, and ln the mean tlm* pcrrrrlt hlm to choose
a State Committee 00 the old llnes fovorable to
hlrnself. Buca a Platt State Committee would
have charge of the affalrs of the Republlcan
party in thls State whl'e tha delegates to the
RepubUcaa Natlonal Conventlon were belng
eleeted. afr. Platl daatraa, perhapa naturaiiy, to
be the governlog aptrlt of a majority of th
gates to :he National Conventlon. Nothlng OBdll
he done by the Republlcan State Conventlon of
thls year if he can prevent it Whlch would plaoa
obstaclea ln the pathway of his machlne whlle
working to eJect lMatt .lei.-Kat.i: to the Natlonal
Conventlon. He therefore, u la aald to-day, wlll
favor a p.>stp"iiement of any change :n the Btate
Commlttee this year. The argument wlll ba
made that ther? are a perplexlng number of
plana I # the tnUrgamaal of the c.mipilttee and
that the Siat-' Conventlon caaaot with wladom
