Eager to Avoid Clash in

tn-Stnle political tcndcra will flock to
Philadelphia this nftcrnoon unit tomor
row and will attempt to prevent a fac
tional flRht In tlie Stnto tills year.
Tito nttltudo of tlie district lenders of
tile Republican Organization outside of
Philadelphia and Allegheny Counties has
completely shifted durlhK tho last 10 days.
The county leaders who swarmed Into
Ketiutor Penrose's offices In the Com

Weeks ago, enthusiastic for a factional
contest, have had what thoy called "sober
second thought." and, Instead of Urging
Penrose to accept the challenge of Uov

sunde the senior Senator that ho should
"get together" with the Governor and the

Speaker Charles A. Ambler, of Mont

sured of the support of the Governor find
the Vares In a contest against Snyder. ,
one or both of these candidates must
withdraw from tin contest If harmony Is
to be brought about, slnco the leaders
of tho Organization admit that a light

Another iiii.s-up results from tho state
ment of tho Board of Itevlsion of Taxes
that the assessed valuation returns are
In excess by $1,000,000, and. therefore,
$70,000 must be deducted from the bor
rowing capacity. This amount Is, mo .small
as nowise to alTect the loan, although the
total agreed upon would seem to exceed
the borrowing power by figures submitted
yesterday. The present draft Is not re
garded as ihial and Is subject to revision
along it number of lines.
One of the defenses set up was that the
plaintiff had failed to prove that the clr- I
cum owners lin.il any notice that the noarus
on which she stepped were loose and un
safe. This absence of knowledge would
have been a good defense, the Court says,
