Indianapolis Jan. 2 4.�?there Are two conditions right now which Indi Lato that the Republican party in la Diana is in pretty Good shape and that Republican discord is a fable the first of these conditions is that so far As is known there has never been an objection consequent to any of the Federal appointments which have been made on the recommendation of senator Beveridge. The other is that so far As is known wih a very few exceptions Harmony prevails in the county organizations. It is not apparent except to those who have been watching the Washington reports pretty closely that senator Beveridge has made a Good Many of his appointments. Every Day or two a dispatch comes from Washington announcing the appointment of several Republican postmasters. Since these Are made piecemeal and not a much space is Given to them in the newspapers they do not attract much attention. But they Are being made just the same and the Sigu Ilic ant part of it is that no com a saints live been raised against any of the api ointments at least no reports of complaints have reached senator Leveridge s office and they probably would get there first. Senator Beveridge s friends say that they Are not surprised that the appointments Are proving sat Isfan Ory because the senator has put in Days and Days of hard work studying out the political conditions in the different counties and has taken up each Case in an exhaustive Way and after taking All conditions into consideration has tried to appoint the most satisfactory and Best equipped Man for the place. In a word the Outlook for Victory next fall is very flattering. Old animosities Are being buried and forgotten and there is the old time disposition to form in solid line and fight aggressively the old time enemy.
