Ffclit Against Cook and Allen Oc cupies Center of Staj;e Since Gubernatorial I face Is) .Settled. Announcement of Mayor Reed's with drawal from the gubernatorial race wa." received yesterday with satisfaction at the headquarters of the Folk bureau In the Equitable building. Though It hid been anticipated for some time. It relieved those who have been conducting the tight against Folk's opponents. So much did It relievo them that N. W. McLeod. who took the Initiative In organ izing the Folk bureau. &uld yesterday that on the Bit of next month he expected to close the headquarter" except for nece" t.ary correspondence purponts. lie will re tain Hal Woodslde and a stenographer. Only one room will be used, and appear ances will Indicate that only an ordinary buslnts office Is being conducted. Instead of a. busy bureau In louch with the news papers and leaders In every county In the State. Mr. McI.eod expects to drop the work, which he feels has now been practically accomplished. From the Inception he has been the head of the bureau and has ljeen a balance wheel which kept matters run ning smoothly. He picked Congressman W. D. Vandiver for the active manage ment of the campaign, and counseled with the other members of the Executive Com mittee. He attended to the most im portant part, that of finances, and Is readv to retire with the honors of hon orable political warfare. Politicians who discussed the Reed with drawal yesterday coupled their remarks with comments on the tight which Is be ing made against Secretary of State Sum li. Cook and Auditor Albert O. Allen. No one pretends to know Just how It will end. It Is conceded that much depends on the attitude of the St. Iouls delegation. The fact that there are contests against the liawes delegates In most of the wards makes his friends dubious about asserting where. they will be In the convention on any candidacy. FI"K FACTORS TO CONSIDER. File factors will have to be considered In estimating the vote of the St. Ixul delegation. Stuever will hao a certain number of votes, which everyone consid ers will be used to the advantage of At torney General Crow If the latter enters the contest, earnestly. Butler, provided his delegates remain seated (he will have some In the convention, whether or .no, as In' some of hla wards no contest was made), will probably act to suit his own sweet will. W. II I'helps is fcupposed to know something of the possibilities of the Twelfth District deft-gallons. Hawes's strength on votes for minor of fices is unknown, though he Is considered an active factor. Close and intimate friends of Mr. Cook claim that they can count upon the friendship of Mr. liawes. On the other hand. Mr. liawes said yester day that no promises had been made, but that he has always been a friend of M:. Cook. When Mr. Cook was here & few days ago he claimed that he bad 145 instructed dele gates and 165 in addition, including the St. Iuls delegates. This would give him a total of 210 votes, only 46 short uf enough ti nominate. Michael McGrath, who Is running for Secretary of State, though his name has been on only one primary ticket, said yes terday that according to his figures Mr. Cook had only 110 instructed delegates. McGrath Intends to go out in the State June 1 after unlnstructed delegates. Other candidates against Mr. Cook ar R. IV. Mitchell of Nevada, who has a number of delegates, and N. IL Musgrave of Ash Grove, who, betides his own county of Greene, with its eleven votes, has sev eral other smaller counties. Each of these gentlemen probably has about fifty in structed delegates. One factor In the situation -srhli-h ta being considered with much care Is the attitude of Circuit Attorney Folk, who has about 100 delegates In the convention instructed for him and no one ele. Wheth er be will try to Influence them against or for any of the minor candidates re mains to be seen. In response to inquiries. Mr. Folk has always said that he was willing to leave tha matter to the convention, and that he was making no slates. Among his chief advisers there Is a diversity of opinion. So far nono of them has declared for or against any other candidate. Judge W. X. Evans and Robert H. Kern, who are friends of Mr. Cook, have said that they will take no part In the contest for Secretary of State, and the- actions of the conventions which they have attended would indicate as much. Congressman W. D. Vandiver Is not of the same opinion as Messrs. Evans and Kern, but to date has said nothing for publication. THINKS McKIXUSY WILL W1X. Editor Martin Saya Ills Cnndldnte Will Get Republican .tomlnatiou. A. J. Martin, editor of the'Unlonvllls Republican. Is in the city In the Interest of the candidacy of State Senator John. C McKlnley of Unlonvllle for the Repub lican gubernatorial nomination. Senator McKlnley has been making the most act ive campaign tor the Republican nomina tion, with Editor Martin as his manager, and has secured the Indorsement of several counties. "Republicans this year will certainly need an active campaigner." Mr. Martin said yesterday. "Senator McKlnley can make such a race. He Is gaining In strength every day. I think that he will have the entire Republican vote north of the river, with the possible exception of the Ninth Congressional District, and that we will go Into the State Convention with oer 2T instructed delegates. In fact. I think that he will be so strong by the time the convention meeta that there will be only one ballot taken." All of which U not being disputed by the friends of some other candidates who have been mentioned. The report that former Maor Walbrldge had told s-everal or his political friends that he would not run against Folk has practically eliminated him from consideration. The attitude of other available candidates, since the fore gone success of Ilk has been accepted, has discouraged Republican politicians. Friends of Representative John H. Itoth wcll are not saying much these days, though it Is said that be does not share the sentiments of Mr. Walbrldge. Both Bothwell and McKlnley are known es nshters. and as both have announced their candidacies there Is nothing other for them to do but to fight to the finish, whatever 1: may bi.

May li In spite of a cold rain that beat Into the faces of the people who ventured Into the streets to night. Joseph Folk, candidate for the Democratic nomination for Governor of Missouri, was greeted by n crowd of 10.OJ0 persons when he stepped uion the stage of Convention Hall. It was believed that few would venture out on account of the rawness of the weather. The newspaper ntllces were kept busy until 8:3) o'clock answering telephone Inquiries as to whether Mr. Folk would speak. When the prosecutor stepped upon the platform he was greeted wth cheers and lusty shouts that could be heard for blocks. Umbrellas, hats and handker chiefs were waved In the air. and the chairman. J. M. 1-owe. was hardly able to restore order long enough to say a few words of Introduction. Again and again the people rose In their seats and cheered, and when Mr. Folk stepped forward the applause and cheers continued for fifty seconds. REED REMAINED AWAT. The politicians who hive been Identified closely with the Reed faction stayed nway. It was reported that Mr. Reed would sit upon the platform, but he was not there, nor was he seen In the nudlence. Mr. Folk in his speech made no reference to the withdrawal of Mr. Reed from the race, other than that the light u gainst boodle had ended In victory. Mr. Folk did better In the big ball than waH expected of him. It takes a powerful voice to be heard throughout the big audi torium, but Mr. Folk was he.inl ralrli- well. Time and again ho had to stop for cheers. Crowds stood In the aisles throughout his entire speech, as they could har bet ter than in the rear of the building, where there were sUII a few unoccupied seats. Mr. Folk's speech had to do chiefly with the boodle Issue. The battle Is fought and won." he be gan. "Right has proved Itself victorious in the Democratic party. It Is now time to rally all together around the flag and present a solid front to the Republican op position. Let all Democrats forget per sonal differences and remember the good of the party.

At the time, it 1$ difficult for the spectators to realize that it Is not looking down, from a great height, on a fleet of actual men of war. After the fleet has steamed back to its anchorage its p:acc Is taken by a school of smart-looking torpedo-boats that go through the water like sharks, and give a display of torpedo firing at a floating tar get, i After every successful discharge of a torpedo a great mass of water leaps high In the air In the vicinity of the target.

Mr. Folk ended his sjieil with a. plea to the Republicans wh love their State and the honor of their Government ubov-e party politics, to come Into the Demo cratic party and help to make the bood lers bolt. For a half hour after he concluded and tho meeting ended. Mr Folk stood uiion the platform slutting hands with his ad mirers.
