SARATOGA, Sept. 15.—11:ere have been
no new developments regarding the
Democratic nominee for governor. A
nvunl 'er of Kings county delegates have
arrived. They f-ay they are ready for
the fray, and intend to stand firmly by
their guns, which are all loaded for
Chapin for governor. There has been
pome talk about renominating Governor
Hill for a third term, but warm friends
.t)f the governor say there is nothing in
it, and that Mr. Flower will certainly
Toe nominated on the first ballot. Ridge
way, of Kings county, has a chance for
second place on the ticket in certain con
tingencies, but the Sheehan men, who
claim the office, say that Ridgeway
won't make it. There appears to be no
doubt that the second term practice ,, Jl
prevail in the offices of secretary of
state and treasurer and that Rice and
Dan forth will be renominated. Should
Ridgoway receive the lieutenant gov
ernorship, Mr. Sheehan will be urged to
accept the eomptrollership, instead of
Frank Campbell, of Bath, who was at
first booked for the place. Sheehan's
friends, it is believe*!, will, insist that
he must have sccond place.
The Minneapolis Capitalist Says There
Is Plenty of Dlonev to Move Crops.
CHICAGO, Sept. 15.—Thomas Lowry,
the Minneapolis capitalist, arrived on
his return from a week's trip to New
York. Mr. Lowry said he visited a large
number of bankers in New York and
learned that there would le plenty of
money for moving the vast crops of the
country. The bankers were having an
enormous call from their Western eor
resjKindents for money right now. and
all he money asked for was leing sent
out. Last year the demand from the
Western correspondents,
much smaller, had to be curtailed on ac
count of the money stringency in the
East. This year the demand from the
West was far greater, and all the
money wanted was ready to be sent out.
Mr. Lowry said that the two Pakotas
and Minnesota would have 175,000,000
bushels of wheat to sell this year. He
did not think these large crops in this
country would be dumped on the market
in such quantities as sesd prices
down. Enough grain for export has
already been sold to keep the st&unship
companies busy to their full capacity up
to Dec. 1 if another bushel be not sold.
