nor s friends, thc Representative from the
Athens district will have his hands full
fighting for a renomiration to Congress
next summer. If Representative Dick
would step aside there would bc no ques
tion about Giosvenors election as delegate
to thc Natioral Convention from thc State
at large, but this Dick will not do. and
hence Air. Grosvenor must remain at home
The four delegates from thc State at large
will be Toraker, Hanna, Nash, and Dick
For the past two Congresses Grosvenor
has had quite a fight to secure his renomt
natlon, and this time the prospects for his
renomination are darker than ever. His
count organization is in the hands of his
enemies, and the word has gone forth that
a younger man must reoresent the district
in the Tift -seventh Congress The
Uhens district is composed largely of
miners, and the head of the miners' organ
ization, is said to be ambitious to come
to Congress It is this state of affairs that
has caused Grosvenor to so soon look after
his fences and refrain from making the
fight for cither delegate-at-large or dis
trict delegate to thc Republican National
Convention.
