Ml o, here to-day to confer with Derepocrati State Committeemen who gather herb to-morrow t choose 'a successor to Chairman Edwin E. Harris. Immediately upon his arrival Mr: Smith called upon Chairman Joseph A. Ketlog of the State campaign committee, anJ ae renewed his plea that Kellogg assutme both the campaign and the State chairmanships. LEADERS JOIN IN PLEA. National Committeeman Norman E. Mack, William E. Kelley, the On.ndaga leader, and practically every committeeman on the field reinforced Smith's arguments. Kellogg was promised a unanimous vote at to-morrow's meeting. Kellogg protested that while he would gladly remain as campaign chairman, he much preferred that somebody else take at least the title of State chairman. WILL TAKE BOTH PLACES. Finally he agreed to serve in both positidns on promise of a solid vote to-morrow, with the understanding that another be chosen as State chairman after this campaign. Chairman Kellogg to-night assailed Governor Whitman and State Chairman Glynn for alleged breach of the contract that until October 19 campaign meetings should be devoted exclusively to appeals for the Liberty Loan. The chairman said: "The Democratic campaign management has sealously fulfilled the pledge not to permit discussion of politics on the stump While the Liberty Loan canvass is being made. Mr Smith and our other candldated have devoted their entire time to promoting subscriptions to the loan. CITES BREACHES OF PACT. "Republican State Chairman Olynn challenges my statement that the pact between us has been broken. Proof of this is in the fact that at Chathaw. Columfia County, the home of Louis F. Payn, lasbt Saturday' 'lax Commissioner aRlph W. Thomas, an appo tee of the Governor, spoke of Ilie 'riot of graft under Tammany rule.' He said further: "If you want good government, confinue the present a40ninistration; if you 'want bad government, go back four years. "Mrs. J. F. Yawget, chairman of the Women's State Republican Executive Committee, urged women as a unit to register and vote for Governor Whitmans. Perhaps Chairman Glynn does not oonsider this ort of talk partisan politics.- The whole' tenor of every speech made was the rankest kind of old?tashioned Republican politics and distinctly hurtful to the sUcoes of the Liberty Ioan."
