You fail to strengthen your

that tho prohibitionists aro seriously
thinking of putting out a State ticket
despite tho opposition to this movomont
on the part of some of the members of
the organization who do not think that
this is tho best way to win. Two meet
ings have been hold in Columbia this
week and at both the members of the
State organization formed hore several
mouths ago were present and discussed
the outlook for a State ticket. Among
those hero were John L. McLaurin,
Joseph A. McCullough, C. C. Feather
stone, L. J. Bristow and others.
It is regarded rather significant that at
least three of these are spoken of as po.
siblo nominees should the party decido
on a State ticket-McLaurin, Feather
stone and .McCullough. It was stated
afterwards that the majority of the
members of the conference aro opposed
to the putting out of a tttato ticket.
