that he would wreck the party and ac

violating platform pledges. '

to surrender to Murphy and to be on

'Z see you are having plenty of trouble

' "A prominent .' New Tork city man

he was exceedingly desirous to get back

people of the state just what Is going

present extra session of congress seems
likely to run over into the regular see

almost Impossible for him to get away.
