Referring to the H.vlan administration, the Governor said: "We have done some things in the Interest of this city, which seem to have been unpopular with a mass of the electorate, juding by the election last fall.

Mtller MvndeH \ew Te'm. As it was the first speech he ha made to a strictly partisan audienc since the Legislature went into sossio in January, there were hopes the Go\ ernor would give some indication tha he would be willing to accept anothV term.

I is hoped lie tnay have some declaratio to make at the speeches he will mak this week before the Kings County Re publican Committee on Wednesday an me .new iors v. uumy iweuu>;vau mlttee on Friday night. After declaring that Mr. Hllles wa tho "type of whom we need more on th tiring line in the Republican party" th Governor contlniied: "Our party's successes have been wo: by standing on principle and perform nnce. The most notable accomplish mints of the Republican party hav been in espousing causes that at th outset were unpopular. But, bclievini in principle, the party has had th courage to appeal not to fleeting, bu to intelligence." "This course will continue to prevai There may be shifts in opinion, but th Republican party will not shift it course for passing expediency." Then the Governor started to tal about the coming State campaign. "I suppose It will he conducted o State issues," ho said, "although w stiould not need to run away from na ttonal issues. Wc can approach th campaign with confidence because w percan make it not on excuses for nor performance, but upon a record c promises kept." In the last campaign the Democrat had said it would be impossible to sto the mounting costs of government with out constitutional amendments. The R< publicans had said they would etop 1 and they had. In his first year, th Governor said, $70,000,000 had bee eliminated from the budget, causing net saving of $10,000,000 over the prt coding year. The wailing and gnashln of tooth was so loud the Democrats ha to acknowledge tho reduction, but the said efficiency would be impaired at; deficiencies in the appropriato as woul result.
