Tom Platt, the Republican boss of New York state, says that Harrison cannot possibly carry New York. For once, Mr. Platt is quite correct. The man who will .carry New York this year is Grover Cleveland. The Jackson Patriot says: "Mr. O'Donnell's gubernatorial fepces being down all along the line his kite is up for the Republican nomination for congress ín the second district." Mr. O'Donnell is one of those men, evfdently, who love to live in public office. Some of the Washington dispatches hint at Hill's withdrawal from the presidental contest iniavor of Flowers. Hill would make a much bettercandidate than Flower, for Hill has brains, while Flower has only money. The president of the United States must be a brainy man. But neither Hill nor Flowers have the ghost of a show of a nomination. Harrison evidently fears Blaine's popularity with the politicians of the Republican party. His son Russell is continually repeating rumors of Blaine's ill health. In New York last week he said: "Mr. Blaine is completely broken down, both mentally and physically." Mr. Blaine is said to bitterly.resent such remarks emanating from the Harrisons. All is not lovely in the Republican camp. Of the delegates already elected to the Democratie National Convention, Cleveland has about three fourths. This computation includes New York where the snap convention instructed for HUL The delegatesalready elected stand: Cleveland 326, Hill 78, Boies 26, doubtful 18. There are over 400 delegates yet to be elected and Cleveland needs but little over half of them to secure the necessary two third required to nominate. It looks as if Grover Cleveland would be inaugurated as president next March. The Detroit Tribune, onTuesday, quoted "G. M. Hall, of Ann Arbor," as saying that this was a Republican year and that the Tribune was doing great work for the party. We own to having Ipoked with a few grains of distrust upon the Tribune's fulsome praise of itself through the mouths of various unknowns throughout the state. This last interview comes close at home. Those few, whose eyes have lighted upon the interview, are enquiring who is G. M. Hall of Ann Arbor. Will the Tribune please answer? We are unable to find any G. M. Hall in Ann Arbor.
