definite conclusion was arrived at. In
view of the fact that no mliuence can pre

ble that his friends will all Join in and give

county democracy also hoisted their pla

the presidential race and the most widely
diverging reports are current as to the
of the respective candidates in the delega
tion. The -Cleveland and Flower coherents
both stoutly claim a majority of the dele
gation and it is conceded by both wings
that Senator Bayard has a following.
It was expected that a caucus of the New
York delegation would be held this morn
ing but owing to the announcement of
Chairman Manning that a caucus could
not be held without full numbers, a post
ponement will be necessary. It is now
stated that the caucus will probably be
