several members of thcj Lincoln

appears to be a close alliance be

there are seven members who will
in no case vote for McCreary and
this indicates that he has nochance
to win the nomination though his
friends are keeping up a brave
front and will not admit that their
candidate is beaten
There seems to be but little prob
ability of a nomination before to
