e'Dr. Cromer was iii Laurens the oth
erdyand gavre out a statement to the
effect that he would not be a ca?ndi
date. He also talked on other mat
ters. The. following .is from this cor
respondent in the daily papers under
date of the 16th:
Dr. George B. Cromer. of Newberry,
spent yesterday in Laurens, on official
busines. In a brief discussion of the
"'situation '' with yorn.i correspondent,
on eave of his departure for home, Dr.
Cromer plainly indicated that he is
not in politics and has no idea of en
tering the campaign this summer as a
candidate for United States senator.
While he appreciates the many com
plimentary press notices as to his
poss5ible candidacy he has not given
the matter any serious consideration.
and at present he is decidedly of the
opinion that he will not be in politics
at all any time soon..
Turning to the gubernatorial cam
pagn, 'the doctor does not subscribe
to the convention plan, holding that
all aspirants that want to be allowed
to go into the race on the platform of
heir own choosing.
Dr. Cromer is a most interesting
alker and during his brief stay .in
he city he. was cordially greeted by
mmerous friends, both old and new.
