it should bi said, in fairness to Mr.
Morton, that the mntteriiiR opposition
to his candidacy which may gather
and break into a political storm 'is not
personal in its origin. It is not against
Mr. Morton that this opposition is di
rected ; but aRiiitiKt the politician whose
pnrposes the Morton candidacy is snp
posed to represent; in other words,
(jainst ex-Si-nator Thomas C. Piatt.
The EufTnlo News, which is particular,
ly outspoken on this subject, explains
the position of tint anti-machine ele
ment in these word?:
The efforts of fair minded politicians
lust yt-ar succeeded in overthrowing the
most dangerous oigapization acninst the
interests of the people tbat in existed in
this stain since tlio downfall of lions
Tweed. To allow another bo: to take the
place of the lately dethroned head of Tam
many would be a felly that never could bo
condoned. No purly could survive it.
There is no de;ire to lessen tho lame which
Mr. .Morton tins earned iu the councils of

personal attack open Mr. Piatt, no
thought of denying the rifiht to diacups
party measures and party doings. But a
large number of the Republican rank and
lile are determined to be heard In con
demnation of the oppressive "boss" sys
tem iu politics. Republicans are restless
under dictation they will revolt under
oppression. If Mr. Piatt and his friends
want to see tho Republican party succeed
in the state of New York, ho and they
must truly and siucerelv follow and not
attempt to had or thwart public senti
ment. THE DEPF.VV INTERVIEWS.
Two recent interviews by Cliauncoy
M. Depow are exciting much remark.
In both of these interviews Mr, Depew
xpressesa personul disinclination to
make tho business sacrifices necessary
to n nomination for governor, but iii
both he (strongly intimnteg that if tie
masses of the party in New York state
came to him with sotuethintf like unan
imity and besousht him to head the
forces antagonistic to Mr. Piatt's stylo
of cut-nnddried politics, he would feel
it bis dnty to accept. It is significant,
in this connection, that Senutor Fas
sett's El mira Advertiser, in a double
leaded and obviously inspired editorial,
volunteers Chemung's support torn De
pew boom, albeit that would ineau Mr.
Fassett's own retirement as a candi
date. TnoJ Advertisel article says in
There are indications . that Now York
city may have another candidate for the
Republican gubernatorial nomination ju
the person of lion. Clmuncey M. Depow.
Ho is very earnostly preferred by many
prominent metropolitan Republicans, aud
bis interview cubled from Hamburg yes
terday indicates that he at least takes
great intercut in the situation and is not
altogether satisfied with the Morton move
ment. Mr. Dcpow's namo'on tho list would
lend another very interesting plueie to the
appearance nf tho content. Thoro are
many Republicans in the state now talk
ing for other candidates who would "off
with the old love and on with the new"
very quickly, did i the gonial and eloquent
Chauncey step forward and assume the
Barkis position. Resides, Mr. Dnpew
would divide the Now York and King
delegations In a way that woiihl set the
people guessing very hard as to the out
come of the convention proceedings.
Should Mr. Depew be nominated and
elected (the election would follow ns a
matter of conrte) he would be excellent
presidential timber in 189.1. He would
have certain advantage in that direction
which Mr. Morton could not have. This
lends another aspect to the case. All in
all the situntlnn is daily growing more
interesting and the result more uncertnin.
Mr. Depew will not reach tho United
fetaies until the I5th, but there is no tell
ing what may take .place berore that day.
CANDIDATE PASSETT TALKS.
This editorial expression of M
Fassett's homo paper has been followod
up by an interview. In speaking at
the Fifth avenue hotel, New York
yesterday, of Mr. Morton's chances of
being nominated, .the young Elmirnn
There are a good many delegates to be
elected yet, and only a few of those who
have been elected are instructed. Tuere
is no disposition on Mm part of any ot the
gontlemen who are being pushed for
nomination to abandon the fiold. Much
more thnn a majority of the delegates
north of the Harlem river will bo for some
candidate other than Mr. Morton. Out
Bide of New York and Kings there are not
over 122 delegates who can be counted on
frA' Morton with any more cortainty
t il ?her candidates can safely con nt on
ZfcrTbis leaves, outside of Now York
and Kings, 148 ss doubtful. If Mr. Morton
shonld get one-half the doubtful delegates
and all his friends claim, he would still
fall short of enough to nominate him. It
looks to me ss if the convention would be
a very spirited' one, although conducted
with tho utmost good feeling. There is a
pronounced disposition on tho part of the
RiiHsell, Miller, Roberts, Baxton, Wads
worth ami Green delegations to stand fust
for their candidates as would my friends
by roe. Mr. Morton's advocates have
claimed, it seems to me, very much more
1 1 1 1

strength for him than ho possessos either
in thio city or in the country.
Chairman William Brookfwld, of the
Republican state committee, who hug
just returned from a tour of the north
ern counties, is not yet disposed to con
cede Mr. Morton's' nomination. Ho
says: "There is lots of talk of Denew
up the state as well iih in New York
City proper, and if he is a candidate I
have no doubr he will have strong sup
port iu the convention. There are
many Republicans iu the state besides
Mr. Piatt who would really lil: to
have something to say about the gov
ernorship. They do not agree with Mr.
Piatt that everything is fixed, nnd that
no one besides Morton is in it."
MILLER TO Till: FRONT.
Another signifioant fact in connec
tion with the fall campaign in this
state is the ontry of ex-Uuited States
Senator Warner Miller, the sage of
Herkimer, Into the gubernatorial ibid,
as a candidate also against Morton.
This is tho second time Warner Miller
has entered, the lists aarainst L-vi P.
Morton in a state contest. The pre
vious time bbth Morton and Miller were
candidates before the ieglalatnre for
one of tho Now .York seats iu the
Uuitod States senate. Eich developed
so much strength that neither could be
noniiilated, ami Frank iiiscock, who
had managed to keep a handful nf votes
ationt him, was olectod by tho transfer
of the Morton voto to nominate him.
The appearance of Miller in tho fight,
when it was supposed he would not in
terpose any objection to Piatt's plan to
nominate Morton, in giving courage to
tho anti-riatt forcis, although they
admit that their only chance lies in bo
s"pnrating the dnl-g,ites among the
six or eight candidates that neither
Morton nor any one or his opponents
can be nominated on the first ballot.
The Republican medley as thus pre
sented to view is yet fnrthor height
ened in places by bitter local fights.
An instance of this may bo cited in Syr
acuse, where tho Regulars, or Belden
ites, have just passed bitter resolutions
refusing to take any part in the local
Republican priinariss next Tuesday,
their excuse being that tho compacts of
harmony entered into with them by
the Independents, or Smith-IIendrickH-Ido
faciion, have been systematically
broken by the latter. Onondaga connty

and intensity of its fictional fend3 and
these have apparently been emphasised
since the iieldenites started their ex

can party ranks. The task of harmon
ization, ulways difficult in a state with
New York's phenomenal allotment of
ambitions politicians.has this year been
made next to impossible by the pros
pact of party triumph and the appar
ently uncommon v;ilue of party Humi
liations. Tho hue uud cry against Tom
Piatt is genuine iu some instances: but
in many it is' believed merely to cloak
personal ambitions which liopa to fur
ther themselves along tho line of the
popular prejudice against tuuobiue dic
tation, real and alleged.
To aum the Republican situation up,
(he apparent advantage enjoyed by
protectionists in coiiBuinenoa ot the
preaant unpopularity of Democracy
among tho masses, has bred such a
surplus of Republican confidence and
of Rjpublicnn ambitions in the Empire
State that unless common sanse coun
sels can be mado to prevail at this
week's convention, the realisation of
victory at the polls will become exceed
ingly difficult. At one time it was
known here that the Democratic man
agers had practically conceded tho
etato to the Republicans, and were pre
paring to suve Governor Flower the
expense of a hopeless ronoinination by
turning the gubernatorial nominatiou
over to some such man as ex-Sricretary
of Stato Frederick Cook, of Rochester.
Mr. Cook was even sent for by Senator
Hill, who had a long conference with
him. But the rapid growth of dis
sensions among the Republicans has, it
is belioved, already changed this plan,
and the Llill-Mnrphy forcos expect now
to make a simrp and aggressive fight
all along the line, a fact of which Re
