What Governor Tyler Says.
Gov. Tyler, in an authorized
interview, says : "lam not running
an assertive or blustering canvass, but
I am most gratified at the outlook I
know where my Mrong points are. My i
candidacy will bring the issues fairly
before the people. I have confidence !
in the intelligence and honesty of the |
masses. ' '
Speaking of the primary in Rii-hmond ;
city and Norfclk 'ounty, the Governor
said: "I am not a whiner, and will
abide any plan or decision when faiily
made. I leave it lo the people of
Virginia, who are fair-minded and
just, to say whether the action of the
committees in Richmond oity and
nTogfolh county is what it should be."
Continuing, the Governor said :
1 'This action is premeditated. The peo?
ple throughout the Bute are looking on
and are being more and more confirmed
in their impressions and are inquiring
why there should be such rushing haste
in selecting candidates. It is certainly
not usual in Richmond and in Norfolk
county, and it is not necessary in any
section. Give the people abundant
opportunty to make up their minds on
?OOh important queutions. "
