The Press has been interven ing leading
republicans in regard to the manner in
which the address recently put fourth by
the independent republicans is received.
Senator Cooper thinks it will unite the
party.
Representative Niles, of Tioga, is sats
fled with it.
Senator Davics remarked that the fact
that lie was a member of the Indepen

through the press upon the subject. He
added, however, that lie "didn't see how
any Republican could consistently object
to it."
