Ho established himself in joom 311. "i tno Twonty-flfth street sldo. JIo.t of tho day ho epont with his private lecrctary In attending to his correspondence But ho had many eallors to whom ho dovoted icmo tlrao between letters. To a Sun roportor jlr.

Whether ibo would take tho stump himself or not would derend upon circumstances. Mr. Flower said that ho would return to W'atertown tho latter part of thowock, as tho beat and humidity had prevented any im provement In his wlfo's health. How long ho irouM remain at homo thcro ho was unablo towv. 1 Ho expressed n hopo that Mr. rassott would j receive a good wolcomo thore, and. In fact, itemed to havo no doubt that his own towns men would treat his antagonist nicely. Tho documents whoso printing Clork Do freest of tho Executlvo Commltteo has boon leelng to whllo awaiting tho mooting of tho commltteo contain oxtracts from Mr. Flower's ipteeho lit Congress. Tliero aro halt a doien dllToront papers, each devotod to I separate topic. Extracts of a financial Interest aro In ono sheet Another deals with tho tariff question. Others refer to mat ters ef Interest In tho Odd of labor or In tho agricultural world.

The Executive Commltteo will moot at 3 o'clock this afternoon. Its composition hns been tho subject of much commont This was left absolutely In tho hands of Chairman Kd Vara Murphy, Jr.. at tho meeting in Saratoga, When the now State Committee was organized. In making up his list Mr. Murphy has played polities with his accustomed skill Ho Sis rut in evldonco with oonsldorablo ompha lic though with an entiro absence of ostenta tion, the fact that tho whole Democratic Krty of tho btato Is bohind tho ratoga ticket. The Importance of this Is mads apparent by a moment's consideration of the ltepnbllcan plan, or rathor plans, of campaign. They started In pursuit of victory with one war cry: "The State Is ours If wo can only get our vote." ...... But It took only a few days to show them that with the World's Fair inoubus and their disavowal of any present interest In the national issues, it was a hopoloss task to try and get out their vote, no matter Whether or not ft would bo a big enough voto it were brought out Bo tho lino of attack was shifted. Tho young candidate, was started out on a tour of the State to endeavor to pound down the Democratlo voto by erles of Tam B&nTlBm and Hilliem. The effort was to make the rural Democratlo voters believe that no ono had any Interest in the ticket except the Governor's friends and Tammany. Vi lln that tale and a tirade of de- JnunclaUoa of Tammany on his lips tho lie jublien sandf date is doing the State. Hie monotony of his Bpoooh and actions lines this plan of campaign was decided upon aedths evidenco that the show is controlled If toe manager in Now York. Inspired a musical politician yesterday to suggest an npropriate tune for the Platt-Iassett demonstrations. He said that tho puppet-sug-testing measures of " Tho Dances of the Au tomatons," In Dcllbes's ballet "Ooppella" would Mueproper accompaniment to the caperlngs of the travelling troupe. "Tho Funeral March cf Marionette." will corao In later. The harmony that Chairman Murphy has conserved is political, not unusual, however. His visit to. New York last week was to find out whether ho could get tho men that ho Tinted to accept places on tho campaign committee and tako hold of tho campaign work. Ho found thorn ready and willing. So this committee Includes Col. Daniels. Lament Pueof tho beet-informed men politically in the state, but not a conspicuous friend of tho Gov ernor or of Tammany. In facMaa former pri nts secretary and political guido, ooun Mllor. and friend to Grovor Cleveland ho ranks as a strong reprosentatlvo of the old jnaehlno rather than the now ono. So doos D.
