It Is believed that Mr T H McMillan

terday from several llfferent sources that
Mr. M' Mllian had practically consented
to make the race. Heveral mcmls-rs of
the anti-administration faction stated th t
they believed Mr McMillan would c*i

of those on the other side s.iid they had
heard II positively stated that auch would
be the case.
It may be said, however, that as yet
no authoritative #(ap-meH has come from
Mr. McMillan as to whether h- would or
would not run. l\i view of the many re

he would make the race, a representative

1 will be ready within a day *r two to
make a statement one way or the other,
but at the present time It is Impossible
for me to say anything definite.”
It Is understood that Mr. M Mllian wrlli
have a further consultation with hi#friends
before making a definite statement. To
