A conservative estimate of the Culloni strength Is placed at llfty-three. Governor Tan ner's friends say the veteran Senator will not have more than forty-three or forty-four votes on the llrst ballot. AVllllam Holdeuweck was at his I.a Sallu street headquarters Tuesday tell ing visitors that the Saturday night meeting In Luko A'lew means hu will hnvu the delegates from the Twenty llftli and Twenty-sixth Wards for Mayor. "1 will have tho delegates with or without a light," said tho mayoralty candidate. "Tho object of tho meeting" was to have members of both Republi can factious there and to ascertain what they thought of my candidacy. Tho result was most gratifying to me, for the meeting adopted resolutions fa voring me us tho nominee, it was a uou-factloual demonstration and en courages me to believe I will havo little dllllculty In securing the Lake A'lew delegates." A I.orlmer apportionment of Cook County congressional and senatorial districts Is said to be what leaders of the Cook County Republican machine aro working for. The reported scheme Is to have tho County Executive Com mittee In secret session formulate a plan of redlstrlctlng that will be agree able to the dominant Lorlmer faction. That plan will bo sent to Sprlnglleld when the Legislature takes up the re apportionment under tho new census and behind It will be the weight of In dorsement by tho party's olllclal organ ization In the county. Such au apportionment Is designed to "take care" of nil tho Lorlmer hench men now lu tho Stato Legislature, pave tho way for control of new cougres" sloual and legislative nominations by the Lorlmer faction, ami perpetuate that factlou lu power. A call for the Republican city con vention Is expected within tho next mouth, and It is said the primaries and convention will all bo held before March 1, This Is earlier than mayoral ty conventions havo usually been held. President Ilanherg, of the County Hoard, is 'said to bo In favor of a re duction of his owu salary ami that of tho other Commissioners. Ills plan contemplates lowering tho salary of ev ery Commissioner ?1,000, which would still leavo au nnfplo Incomo of 3,000 a year to tho members and $5,000 to tho President. Such au action on tho part of tho now board would bo ns much to tho credit of its members as tho salary grab of tho preceding board was to Its discredit.

Republicans of tlio Fifth Primary District of the Twelfth AVanl held a rousing meeting hist Saturday night and endorsed the Hon. Frederick E.
