In this matter of the joint de- ti

Mr. laiborne, I want to say s4
that Morgan's manager did not tI
balk at san ofer made by Mr. ac
Claiborne's manager. When I p

day.morning, I stated to him or
thatiI was ready and willing to N
meet him at any time and place an
to 'trage the details for these w,
twoidebates. an
I"t the same time I stated to th
"him that in view of the fact that If
Mr. Claiborne came from the tel
western sideof the district and in
Mr. Morgan from the eastern, I thi
consider it wise and proper that an
he, as'the representative of the ph
western candidate, ought to se- im

of the river and I would name
the place on the east side of the
