to who is elected Governor ... re-

"chances seem to oe better than
those of Beekman, and it is quite
probable that Thayer is elected
by a rery small majority. There
is no doubt of the election of

In the event of the election of
either Thayer or ' eekman (and
we think the actual result will
not be known until the official

it is certain the Governor will ns
a good man. AW will agree with

people will be satisfied to hear of
