general on tho republican ticket at tho
ensuing primary election will havo a
largo measure of appeal to tho right
thinking voters of that party. Drun
dago unquestionably will bo a sourco
of strength to tho republican ticket at
tho general election through his por
honallty nnd record.
Tho nfflco ot nttornoi'-Kenoral Is ono
of great honor and Influence and pre

As a result of that litigation tho rail
