A POLITICAL MISTA UV).
A dispatch from Columbia, under
dato of Sept. s?i\. says, in referenco
(o tho clo! lng hours 6f the camplagn
between Mr. Mel,.od and dr. Please,
as viewed iront their respective head
qua rters :
"The Please ofllco is hoing di
rected by Congressman Erod Dom
inick and Eugono S. Please, bro
ther of tho former Governor, both
of New lu rry, with Clift' Langford.
Of St. .Matthews, assisting.
"Ill charge of the McLeod otlice
is Robert Ki. Dennis, Mr. McLeod's
law partner. Mr. Dennis is well
known in many parts of the State.
He is a law graduate of the unU
versity and of the law department
of tlie i diversity of Virginia, and
w.is twice elected to tho Legisla
ture from his home county, Leo."
li may ho absolutely none of our
business. .Mr, Dominick's politics,
so l'a . as W? are concerned, matters
nothing to us. As Congressman from
the Tl I rd dlslricL however, Ids poli
tics con Ututo a question for con
sideration at tho hands of the people
o? tho Third district. As the head of
Mr, Mease's campaign headquarters
in Columbia, aflor having secured
tho Congressional nomination in tho
Third d isl riet for himself, ho ls wo
fully oui of place. Ho would ho out
of place were he in campaign head
quarters ol Mr. McLeod, in other
words, hoing a Congressman from
one of the districts ho h..-> no busi
ness da :d)ling in the politics of the
State further than to cast his ballot,
or, as did Senate;- Tillman, when the
grave crisis came, east tho weight of
bis influence, through tuber means
than local headquarters, on the side
Of what ho deemed to be right and
for tho good of the State.
Mr. Dominick has been given cred
it for having risen above his old
"side-kick" (ind political bed-fellow.
Mr. Blouse. In bis action in regard
lo taking over tho direction of Please
headquarters in tho present cam
paign, we believe that he will come
lo a full realization that he has made
a political mistake.
We knew thal Mr. Dominick had
many people fooled now as in years
past in regard to his Stato political
alignment. We ate glad that he has
si pped oui Into tho open. We, antl
Pleaseii - d mensches, may Judge
him fairly and squarely hy Iiis open
notions, as some ol' us have had op
portunity lo do in our homo counties
by the "company he keeps" among
I he loca I poi il ieia ns.
Wi- .iii;;.;: (hat Mr. Dominick's ac
tion, so far as he Is personally con
cerned, is absolutely none of our
l.usliu <s. As a public servant we be
llevo thal there are many who will
believe willi us tba: he has down wil
fully in the faro of not a few of his
district's c ilzons, who will resent
this unwarranted Interference at a
mos! critical political period.
