At., March 2.V It is tho general opinion here lhat Fallx Miirtliieg could control enough vole In the legislature at any time to elect him to the I'nlted Stales Semite, but Martinez's position Is known to be similar tn that of Solomon Luna: he duos not want the senatorship unless the pressure upon hlin becomes so great, that he Is unable to resist It. Tile republicans are said to be making an effort lo gather enough vnlcs to elect Solomon Luna with either Judge Fall or Charles Springer as a running mate. Luna has not authorised any sin li use of his name, but he leaders plan to take advan- tnge of his absence from the field to force his election, trusting to Induce him to take the office In Ihe interest of party harmony. it can be said, however, that even Luna's closest friends alia mil know but what .he would resign Ihe office Immediately alter his election and the absence, of any permission ex pressed or Implied for the use of his naiiii. has s,i far deterred the leaders from openly springing the combina tion.
