FOR THE SENATE. Governor Candler or Crngresaman Livingston Msy Oppose City. AOants, Or'. printed. In the News yesterday that Governor Candler will be a candidate 10 oppose Senator Clay, when the term of the former expires, ia not generally be lieved, since the governor deolines to confirm the report. The rumor is several months old, and when it was first circulated, the governor very em phatically denied it. Now that the governor has been re-eleoted, and as it is a precedent that he will not serve more than two terms, some believe the statement is true. The governor, how ever, passes the matter by saying that he never crosses a bridge until he comes to it. An interesting story Is being told by the fall politicians who are now visit ing Atlanta, that Congressman Lon LivlnjffWßWlNffn the fifth, will be a candidate to oppoee Stove Clay for the United States Senate. This story is not confirmed, but as it has been repeated ly told there are many who believe there is more truth than fiction In jt, A prominent politician stated yesterday that he knew that such would ba the case if the governor did not announce for the race.

JoOR til ID SPEAK Crokor is Confident, but the Repute licans Seem to Have the Best End of It, j New York, Oct. 13.—The great polit ical battle between the two parties in the United States has about reached its height, and this state, by all appear ances will be in the very vortex of the fray. Upon most conservative estt-. 4 mates secured from headquarters of the two parties and from leading newspa .prospects seem more favorable to the republicans. The democrats, however, are very con fident, and claim the state by a good majority. Id the betting the backers ofjMcKiniey are decidedly more aggrocsive, and out ride of the large bets already made with odds on the republican nominee, none amount have been covered by the democrats. Democrats ol every shade are on the qui vive of expectation, anticipating something grandiose in the line of ova tions and demonstrations in favor of their standard bearer W. J. Bryan, who will be here at an early day to attend the monster democratic meeting. This mooting, judging by those announced to be present, will easily eclipse any previous gathering of prominent men. Bryan will be the star.orator, well sups ported by a galaxy of the most brilliant and eloquent speakers la the country. Asa whole the republicans seem to have the ocstoflt. Croker, is confident, and the effect of the mon ster rally on the morale of the and mo* cratic phalanxes, promises to act ss a powerful offset and help capture the wavering, who really hold the balance of power. • ______________ A CUTTING AFFRAY.
