Thre above dispatch of the Associated Press, received eflrly this morning, shows that in at least a measure, it is believed that the entire construction forco which lias been at work on tho building of the Cnnanea, Yaqui & Pa cific railroad is to be transferred to Winkclman at once, to begin work on the Box canyon cutoff. Iu railroad circles generally, the granting of this franchise is absolutely denied, as it is held that little can bo looked for 'in this matter until after the Ballinger-Pinchot hearing is com pleted.

Y., Mkreli . Tim othy Woodruff, chairman 01 the repub lican btate committee, arrived tonight and took charge of the fight against tho effort of Senator Root to whip tho republican senators into line for the election of Root's candidate as the senate majority leader. Woodruff's hasty journey to Albany proved that the republican organization has a real battle on hand, and, judging from tho defiant attitude of' his adher ents, those who stand reaay to obey the wishes of Root and Governor Hughes will have difficulty in electing Senator Harvey Hinman of Bingham ton as president pro tern at the caucus tomorrow. The situation tonight resolved itself into Woodruff and Barnes, with buch old party leaders as still control their own counties, against Root and Hughes, backed by the administration at Wash ington. Tho indications tonight aro that no candidate will have enough votes in the caucus to assure election, and the cau cus might adjourn again without nam ing a new leader. According to the claims of the three camps, the republican bonators now stand as follows: Cobb, 15; Hinman, 13; Davis, 4; doubtful, 1. Necessary for election, 17. Tlie republican situation in the past twenty-four hours has undergone ho swift a change that the most experi enced politicians confess themselves at sea. If a majority of the republican benators openly defy Roof it is evident the party will pace a npl.it unprecedent ed in its dimensions. Cobb's friends declare tonight that Root is misled and that he never would have tried to as sert his authority so publicly unless he believed that a word from him would settle the situation. "They gold-bricked him; that's all," said one of the recalcitrants. If Root's leadership is disowned, some republicans declared tonight that nothing buth the return of Roosevelt could cement the party in tune to pre sent an unbroken tront to tlie enemy at the next state election.
