QovernOf Judpon Harmon of ohio as
sumed \rsterday the part of a sounder

husiness mcii and poliremen and any
..t'.ier varlety of < itizen who was will
inu to talk politics in order to get firnt
hand information as to the situation in
New York Clty.
I'nrecognized by anyl)ody. Governor
Harmon strolled from Cowling Green
to the Fifth Avenue Building, where
the Democratic national headquarters
are buzzing with actUity, stopping on
his way at all the political meetings he
passed and engaglng in conversatlon at
least twoscore of men of varioua classe|
whom he found willing to talk.
It was an incontrollable deslre to flnd
out in a direct way how thlngs were
going in this atate that prompted him
to the experlment, Governor Harmon
said. He had a faint feeling of belng
regarded with lncreasing ausplcion as
he made his way along Broadway and
buttonholed men to get thetr vlewa on
the politlcal nituatlon, the Governor
said, and partlcularly atrong was this
feeling when he stopped to interview
There was some ald offered to him
through the noonday meetings that
were in progress Just then, Governor
Harmon found. and as he walked up to
the crowd and llstened to the speakers
an opporttinity would arlao to aogage
ln talk with aome man who appeared
as if he mlght be willing to dlacuss po?
litlcal chancea.
Apnarently Governor Harmon did not
flnd mueh trouble in doing this, and the
twoscore or rnore interviewa whlch he
had were obtalned in the course of an
Walklng up Broadway the (Jo\ ernor
approached the policemen on duty and
began to talk with them about the
prospects of the Democratic nomlnees.
How he got at the unlformed men and
managed to !oos*n their tongues the
Governor would not dlacloae, but he
was proud of belng able to eay that he
had taiked with rnany of them and got
the information he wanted without
having his identlty diacloaed.
?I have convinced myself that MtW
