It Is ndmltted that Plalsted out
genernlcd his opponents In tho con
duct or the campaign. Realizing that
ho must depend upon the cities for
his vote, he concentrated his efforts
upon them. The result Is that tho
Democracy swept every city In the
stato excepting Belfast and Calais.
The sentiment spread from Jho

captured four out of five of tho minor

Tho Impression prevails hero that
tho department won unwilling to sup

, A musBngo wnu sent last week to
Marsh Instructing him to repudiate a

represented ns indicating that tho
United Stntes might Intervene If
Mcndnza, nn active candidate, were
elected. As It has. not been announced
that Marsh repudiated tho inter

lutely refused to comment today, It
la supposed that Marsh did not repud
iate It. -
A cahlo messogo from tho canal
zono announces that Goethuls nnd his

today refused to ndmlt receiving
