corn that will not ripen. This Is due
partly to the lateness of the spring

to the cool, wet summer that Is Inclined
to prolong growth and retard
ripening. But very few persons have
cut any corn yet. Corn will probably
be fairly good If it gets to ripen.

NEW YORK. Sept. 24.?One of the
inost enthii3laetle Heches Republicans
In this State predict In chatting
with your correspondent about the
pread of Hughes sentiment in the
West that the friends of Senator Foriker,
thoso of Senator Knox and of
Flee President Fairbanks would unite
with the friends of Governor Hughes
to prevent the nomination of Secretary
Taft and that they would support
the Governor If it Is plain that neither
Foraker, Knox or Fairbanks can win.
rhe reactionaries, as we are sometimes
called who are opposed to
Roosevelt's radical policies, do not
want lo see Secretary Taft nominated
because rait woua carry our rue injuries
of Roosevelt, which, we believe,
are not boneflclal to the interests of
the country. Governor Hughes has
shown by his veto of the Two-cent
Fare Bill, passed almost unanimously
by the New York legislature, that he
lias nol lost Ills head In the popular
clamor against railroads and other
lawful corporations. It doesn't seem
that either Knox, Foraker or Fairbanks
can get the nomination, and as
I am opposed to both Secretary Taft
and President Roosevelt, I look upon
Sovernor Hughes as the hope of conservative
Republicans In the nominating
convention. Anyone with half an
eye can see that there Ib little sentiment
In this State for Taft, although
a good deal for Roosevelt, and the
only thing to-day that stands in the
path of the Governor is the attitude
of the Republican organization of thu
3tate, under the leadership of Timothy
L. Woodruff. For some reason
that 1 cannot fathom the former lieutenant
governor is opposing the obvious
sentiment of the masses of Republicans
In this Stat" and if the
Ffughes followers swamp him In. the
next meeting of the State committee
I shall lie more than pleased."
"Hughes," It -was suggested, "does
not seem to be working for the nomination."
"That Is just It," replied this Republican.
"He Is big enough and
broad enough to realize that a man lit
lo be -President should not schema
and dicker for office, for the people
will sooner or later discover a presidential
possibility without outside aid
or suggestions from political bosses
and lenders. These bosses should
stand aside when popular preference
Is plainly against them."

ganlzation of this State to Hughes

would 8till be the strongest man in ]
the Republican party of this State- '
j and tho safest man that could be picked
for the presidential nomination."
The strength of Bnghes Is the nightmare
of the bosses, and Odell Is simply
trying, as he freely admitted in
the last meeting of the State committee,
when he tried to get his Hughes
resolution through, to get a front seat
on the bandwagon. Why, all of the
Independent newspapers In this State
and on0half of all the Democratic
newspapers wll support Hughes as
against any Democrat who may bo
nominated, and the election would be
simply a formality with Hughes as
the Republican candidate."
"The plurality for Hughes last fall
was not large," suggested your>corre- r
"There would have been no Repu'o- ^
lican plurality," this Republican re- r
plied, "If Hughes hadn't been the can- s

Hughes, who has never figured in national
affairs or in affairs at all out- Fl

Cleveland, who had scarcely vis- U
