there was a i;rest

W. M. SPBIN'Ona. candidate had h a
prophet there seemed to bs an opinion al
most penerat that Crisp would lead on ttia
first ballot. Some of the Georgian's ar

Mills, but more conservative adherents
fve him from twenty to twenty -five votes

IT pen the authority of a member of con
gress, and some times two or three mem
bers, from each state the following U the
way the poll stands at present: Crisp, 59
Totes; Mills. 51; Sprinper, 25; McMillin,
84; Hatch, 16. These votes are said to be
certain. This leaves CO votes in tbe
doubtful column, and lacks considerable
of confirming tbe claims of the Crisp men,
who firmly believe, all tbe same, that
their candidate cannot be beaten unless
some pre-arranged combination is effected,
and they fear that some such Arrangement
trill be attempted by the McMillin and
Hatch factions. If McMillin finds that
be cannot win he will give his vote to
Mills, and endeavor to carry bis own sup
port with bim. This, tbe Crisp men say,
Is Impossible, because many of McMiilin's
kootbero supporters will naturally favor
After the First Ballot.
The Mills people profess to believe that
nearly every supporter of Hatch will
tome into the Mills ranks after tbe first
bulot. How Springer's supporters will
go in the event of tbe withdrawal of tbeir
candidate is involved in too much uncer
tainty to be predicted with any accuracy,
bat if a combination of Illinois, Iowa and
Michigan is effected tbe Mills bnom will
: be inflated to a degree that will, in all
' probability, bring to the Texan's aid
( many supporters of other candidates who
' are undecided as to a second choice. It is

But Holman's title is a bitter memory to

dot here yet, and no one knows why, al

much interest by the adherents of the

him as tbe leader of his party in tbe
