Republican state commit teem;in and leader of Albany, issued a sta:enient tonight in which he de? clares that "hysteria has rag not throughout this county." and that the question to be decided at the coming Republican state convention at Sara? toga is "whether the Republican putty will fight the disease or succumb in the interests of pcliticians seeking offlrc or tem|>orary acclaim." * The chatacter of the recent .'"l dresses of Theodore Roosevelt in the West, Mr. Harms says, has startled all thoughtful men and Impressed them with the frigh'ful danger which lies in his political ascendancy."
