Richmond, Va., May 15.?Many bets are being made In Richmond ns to whether Mr. Ellyson will call a meet? ing of the State Committee to pass upon the request of the conference here last Wednesday for a State Senatorial convention.

Therefore, Mr. Ellyson will not ask the committee to consider a request to do that which It has not the right to do. Upon the other hand, those who fa? vor a convention making nomination, including both the papers of this c.ly, argue that the comulittec has perfect authority to cull such a convention, and that the convention can make a nomination. REFUSES TO DIVULGE. Mr. Ellyson will give no Intimation ns to what course he will pursue. lie States that he will act promptly upon the receipt of the request for a con? vention. This is expected to come "Wednesday, when Hon. William A. An? derson, chairman of the conference, re? turns from Charleston. A CANDIDATE WILL RE NAMED.
