The New York State Agricultural Department is advertising 11,000 farms comprising 148,190 acres, for sale or rent. During -1910, ‘the Department sold land to the _va,lue of $6,200,000 to non-residents. Theodore Roosevelt has olfered to release the eight Delegates-at-Large, as to their obligation to yot.e‘for him, leaving each one free to act as he sees but this they have decided not ‘to do. They were elected _by th.e.-Repub- 1'iE££§3s Roosevelt men, and such -they must remain.. The result in the Old Bay State, settles the question of the availability of President Taft\ as 21. ca didate for renomination. This is al tacitly acknowledged by the partisaha ers, that were at the outset of the camphkigxso abusive of Roosevelt »in\their support ‘f Taft‘. The\Democ‘rats' c>f\~K\\l~§sachusetts pro- nounced\for~§peak‘er Cham Clark over Governor Woddr lw Wilsonktwo to one in the presidentijhrmerence contest. At the ‘same time Dele ! pledged to Governor Foss, were elected to attend the Baltimore Convention, though his name did not appear in the presidential preference column. Both the Republican and the. Democratic National Conventions promise to be free-for-alls as to candidates for Presi- dent, but out of the turmoil will emerge a winner, and he will beta man pledged to the Initiative, the Referendum and the Recall; the Revisionlof the Tariff, and the Elimination of the Trusts, ‘ l|:‘br Sb»V'£I‘.‘1.e“_-L»-SVa!:':_.ed.Oat:§, V‘afié.ty illinoié Central.

We do not care tobe put in such-9. position, but if you nominate Mr. Wadsworth we shall publish, as widely zis possible, his public record. in opposition to various rnoral reforms,- which will cause thousands of Republicans to vote against him. “Mr. Wadsworth opposed qovernor Hughes in most of his reforms, but especially did he oppose the Governor in the very important reform of direct primaries.
