Massillom. O., July 22.- Senator Sherman sends this letter to an inquiriug friend at Massillon : "Your note of the loth is received. Ie is not true that I have declared that I Wüuld not again be a candidate for the senate. I have noticed such in the papers but I regard even the consideration of the subject as entirely premature. The legi slature which elects ray successor will not itself be nominated until next summer. When spoken to on this subject I have made that reply. I thank you heartily for your kind opinión."
