that United States Senator Fulton Is
". seeking the Intervention of Prest
? dent-elect Tart and National Chair

torial situation is received here with
groat interest.

George Chamberlain, a democrat, was
nominated for UnitNd States senator
, by the people. The nomination of a
democrat In a state which is re
publican by 15,000" majority is gen
erally attributed to factional strife
between the Fulton and anti-Fulton
republicans. Defeated in the repub
lican primaries last April by Judge
Cake, It was charged in the most em
phatic language at the meeting of the
t'nlon Republican league, the most
Important republican club In this
state, by the anti-Fulton people that

at the June election to Governor
(L Chamberlain and thereby caused the
