MONDAY MORNING. : , THE PHILADELPHIA TIMES. JUKE 18, 1900. TE UP ROADi HIGHW WATER CONT gars; eooou COUWK Of. J , . I , II I i . (M conn on fi. I ' council. frjj - ' Pig Went l!EJfM To MARKET "J&- FUSION PLANS ARE NEARLY RIPE Chester County Independents Waiting for the Democratic Line-up, CAVANAUGH IS SANGUINE Special Telegram to The Times. West Chester. Jump 17. The Independent Republicans are waiting on thp Democrats'-line up under the fusion flag. Chairman John Cnvunuugh assures tlu; Independent leaders that the Chester county Democrats are all riht. that they mean business just they did in jiikI he seems to feel that the'tr allies should show some evidence of conlidence in bis men because, after all, confidence is something that must he on tap during this campaign, if the fusion business would win. Thomas Hoopes. the recognized father of the Independent forces. Is on a trip South, but he is expected to reach borne in a few days. Without Thomas the under leaders feel it would not be the proper tiling to go Ahead, anil so they are waiting. There will be nothing done by Thomas Hoopes' men until after the national convention in Philadelphia has completed its work. But next week John Cavnnaugh will call his county committee together and it is expected of him to have his end of the fusion plans laid bare to the inspection of the Independent end of the proposed aggregation, and if this is done HuUsfaotorlly the anti-Quay Republicans promise to get together in short metre order and do the rest. Sharpies May Consent. Thomas Sharpless. of Birmingham, the one for whom the: fusion dnignet has been out for several weeks in connection with the legislative candidacy on behalf of the Independents for the Eastern district, will be heard from In a few days. This Is a plain case of the office, or. ra'her the nomination. seeking the nan. something that has not j been witnessed here for several yeanf. He j hat refused to allow his name to be thus ! used, but he w.m loid the other day by Major Moore, that this was a mutter in which be I would not be permitted to have a video, and that when the convention met it wonM place him on the ticket regardless of Ills preferences or any adverse action he may see fit to take. Since then, it is alleged, he has beeu more resigned to hit? political fate, but he insists that to doesn't want the nomination, and was ith to be elected to a seat In the Legislature it would be at n great sacrifice to bis dairyluterests; berddes be feels thut he would bo much happier at butter making than in the labors of making laws, for the people of the Keystone State. If Mr. Sharplfrss gets on the ticket there will he no trouble in securing the Senatorial nomination for I. E. .lefferis. This donp, Professor Kendall, of Lincoln, will be given his old place 1l the Legislature from the South and the band will bcgbi to piny. This will be the Independents' sbarc of the legislative plums, the lion s sharers u matter of fact, the Democrats to res content with a pair of Legislators their obi duet the 'ne which won . in 1 .ss is, nnndy Dr. rrat. of Coateeville. and Frank- Ralftton, t irn in tho North. John Cavunugh would, it is said, be happitr if Dr. Pratt would nut ask fo a second term nomination, because it in said that the doctor did not am up with hi duetts In his last campaign as he should have done, and upon Ibis subject it is said that 'Ex-Postmaster Mores, only the other day, read him a lesson in political etiqucie that war-; mvay up in J and a full yard wide. Copt's N'ftme Saved Him. The leading interest in relation to the Stalwart ticket for the Legislature promises to centre In Fred Cope, who Is making bis initial effort this time down in Lincoln and throughout the southern end. It b alleged upon pretty straight authority that Mr. Cope's name won him the nomination. Had It been Smith. Jones, Slmpklns or anything else but Cope he wouldn't have been in it. The real Stalwart choice was Dr. Milton K. Conard. Jr.. of West Grove, and he came within an ace- of getting the prize. Had his name been Cope instead of Conard he would have won. Hut after a careful juggling of the two mimes it was decided by Larry Eyre & Co, that Cope was weightier than Conard because of a large circle of family connections, the most of whom have at intervals had the disagreeable habit of running into the anti-Quay camp find voting there. And no it is hoped with Fred Cope on the Stalwart ticket tills year that all of the Cope family, from the Coven tries down to the Nottingham, will rise up as one man and vote for Fred and the rest of the Stalwart ticket. All of which Ex-Coroner Barclay Lear snys they won't do by a long way. The New Food Commissioner. There is another Chester county (pe now likely to figure conspicuously iu the affairs of milk;, butter and state. Jesse K. Cope, of East Bradford, has been but into the shoes of the late Food Commissioner Wells. He was the choice of Governor Stone' because Jesse and he were school mates some-where, and Jesse has always been a Stone man rosrardloss of bis predilections to vote the Kickers' ticket. He vns a delegate to tb,e State convention that nominated Governor Stone, and It wa many months' later that Jesse was made a manager of the insane Hospital at Norristowa, Jcse was asked for his photo one day this week before his appointment was made, but -be refused to yield the only one be had. The meeting of II. Morgan Ruth's Republican county committee one day this week was. without n ripple of excitement, the only strange thing done was to resolve ( on a committee -of five to serve as Chairman' Ruth's- field stalT during the coming campaign. This idea was Colonel lforton's. It was his uiotiou that led up to it, nud while the committee lias not yet been named the gallm.t colituel will be its chairman because, of his being the author of the resolution which inspired it. It is said that Mr. lintfi doesn't like tiie idea; licit her does Larry Eyre, Recorder Thomson nor Senator Snyder, wiiich, if; so. may cause somebody to forget the muifin of the gentlemen to com-, pose that body of assistant campaign directors. Rutloi" Taking It "ay. Congressman liutler is at home half glad, half sorry that Congress is adjourned, but tired through and through. He had stuck lo his duties well and Inasmuch as all is plain sailing for hl getting another term, he having but little if any fence-lixing to do-he ought to hie away to his Lnngport cottage and suooay. in bis hammock -while, the political waves knock about the fellows who are less fortunate and more susceptible tt campaign chilln. He declares that the nomination of J. Newton Huston for Congress by the Prohibitionists of Chester and Delaware counties is giviug him no trouble whatever, nor will it. mid Senator Snyder, of Spring Clt is equally fearless of the nomination of Joseph Kift, Jr.. for State Senate by the same party.
