Republican State loaders would be In i
political dilemma Impossible of escape
the sentiment ol
They would know that tsetment
the Republican a independent voters of
tho Stat had hardened beyond tho crys
taUlzation stage for Hughes and that the
people were paying no attention to socalled
leaders who convinced against their will
were of the some opinion still
Goy Hughes will not mao any of those
letters public He considers them personal
so much so that ho h answered each one
8 8 tt awe ec
himself Two big boxed encased those
lot from Saranao Inn t tho Executive
Chamber Gov Hughes will not discus
for publication the Republican Guberna
torial situation
Why even Roosevelt Woodruff Parsons
Hedc would b unable t force
Hughesa nomination at Saratoga without
a riot among the delegates declared an
exceptionally well informed Republican
official lat night He was talking con
fidentially but none the leas earnestly
Well the have to nominate Huge
whether they have a riot or not eraphaf
Ically asserted a close friend of cloy Hughes I
tonight when he heard of the remark
Word has reached Albany that Woodruff
h red Aly thatWol
PIM Barnes Ward and Hendricks have
told President Roosevelt at Oyster Bay thai I
it the President insisted on Hug ss r
nomination the only course left them would I
be to defeat him at the polls This is the I
reason advanced to Hughess friends foi
attitude at Bay on hit
the present attudo Oyster By tIS I
The State machine leaders are tolling
their friends confidentially that they h
little trouble hi convincing Pet Roosevelt 1
velt that Hughoas renomination would
greatly wedken Tofts chances 1 the State
ty wee co
a the President would like to see Hughea I
ret to private life if the onus for such
amovo was placed upon the State machine I
by the voters and it would not endanger I
Taft In the State I
Privately those State leaders insist no
matter what happens t Hughes that the
national issues and fife September conven
tion work of the ConnorsMurphy Demo
cratio I machine Insure the election of the
RebUSlto tlckef beyond perad
They feel that they have brought Pr
dent Roosevelt to their point of view and
among themselves they have determined
to keep quiet and go ahead and saw wood
which means the election of antiHughes
delegates to the State convention from
threequarters of the counties
Gov Hughess friends are not unfamiliar
with the movements of the machine leaden
and their arguments In opposition to his
Whos Who so far as It concerns Now
York State Republican politics will have
to be revised soon laughingly remarked
a close political obsenren tonight alf the
State leaders do not soon report correctly
the result of their investigations of the
sentiment of the Republican voters upon
this question
Hughes is going to be renomlnated
he Bug At the proper time Tat see
the necessity for touching the button
By that time the present State leaders
may not ben power to do the rest But
there will be equally able statesmen at the
bead of the Republican State machine
The plan of the machine leaders to stand
against Gov Hughess ronominatlon was
not completed until Benjamin B Odell I
Jr had his long talk with Chairman Timothy
L Woodrf at Republican State head I
quarters a short time ago Woodruff is as
much afraid of Odell politically 0 a child
is of the bogey man Parsons is not afraid
of Odell in that sense and yet he is v
on the alert for any of Odolls Insidious po
litical movements
It is no secret that Odell wants to control
the Manhattan Island Republican machine
as a nucleus for his return to power In the
Republican State machine Parsons does
not want Hughes and yet he does not want
to lose control In Manhattan IHowas
averse to coming out agalnat Hughes for
four Odoll would give him another fight
at the primaries in September Apparently
Par feared the result this year even if
he never did before
The WoodruffWardBarnesHendrioks
political coterie was in a quandary for
awhile They nee Pomonas open opp
sition to Hughes or the combination could
not withstand publio pressure Woodruff
was deputed to make overtures to Odel
He did so at the State headquarters con
ference recently Odell accepted them
Odells recognition In the campaign organ
ization on the State committee followed last
Speaker James W Wadsworth Jr Is

that tb Rpt would cut short his vaca

and that he would take etepa at once to

to aid him In advancing his Canvass for the
nomination for Governor
While all hoes mancBuvrings are going
on Gov Hugh pursuing the even tor
o his official work Personally th Gov
ernor would not be disappointed if he wore
not renomlnated Bo prefers to resume tho
practice of his profession Ho decided to
accept a renomlnation if the Republican
voters desired it only because he was im
portuned from all section of the State not to
abandon in their initial stages reforms he
had already hud placed upon t statute
books and those he had outlined but which

prominence t a statement from a wel
that the Govern

ment is considering a proposal to raise n
large loon in vie of the renewed compe

posals to this end have been put forward
by financiers of the highest standing wh
have undertaken t find 110000000 or
nominal terms in order to meet the necessi
ties of the fleet in thenextfewyearswlthoui
disorganizing the annual budgets or castlnt
a heavy burden on the present generation
The correspondent proceeds aTho pro
posal is a simple one I would be a
declaration translated into terms of cash
of the countrys intention to maintain the
two Power standard at all costs Then
is no leeway to make up but there is a
future to be safeguarded B settlnj
aside l0Oo for thofleet the Gov
ernment would advertise Its policy in every
paper in the word and in all deliberative
ambliluntilt was world notorious
Such a loon would not be hypothecated I
in advance I would form a fund whiol
could be drawn upon as required Then
is no Id of fixing the expenditure yoai
by year for a long period in advance The
navy estimates would be introduced cad
spring aa usual but any outlay beyond the
normal would be taken from the loan
The scheme I put forward in no Sit
of financial despair but in the hope U
check b she flnancla1 boldness the 1
newed competition hi naval power The
proposal has already received the support

of an influential section of Cabiet
who are determined to omit no steps tc
