county convention, which was held yester
day. The governor was asked to address the
convention and for his remarks he was
given a vote of thanks and. In addition, the
convention, endorsed his administration so
far aa it affected the finances of the stats.
It is what the convention did not do that
disappoints the governor, The fact Is not
concealed that Governor Savage aspires to
be permanent chairman of the state con
vention, but It was desirable first for him
to get on the delegation of his home county.
This he failed to do. ' It was announced

of Frank Currle were preparing for a
clash, the Currle forcea making no secret of
their opposition to Savage. Whether the
