Thursday afternoon .Mr. Columbuc
Ewnlt handed to tho Planner the fol
lowing statement, announcing his
withdrawal from the raco for the
nomination for statojsenator!
Mt. Vernon, O., Apr 18, 1912.
Editor Banner Having announced
thru your paper my candidacy for the
nomination of State Senator, and)
having since said tlrap most thoroly
reconsidered tho matter, I now wish
to state to tho Democrats of Knox
county that I am not a candidate, and
desire to express my hearty apprecia
tion to my many Democratic friends
In tho county for tholr hearty sup
port and assistance, which I appre
ciate to tho fullest
With sincere thanks to my frlenda,
gqod wishes for all, and hopes for
tho success of democratic principles,
Most truly yours,
When asked for his reasons for
taking the action indicated In tho
above statement, Mr. Kwalt stated
that for some tlmo it had been diffi
cult for him to persuade himself to
stand as a candidate for the nomina
tion. He said ho. had no question In
his own mind as to tlw outcome ot
the nomination nnd the election, but
that ho could not get 'away from the
conclusion .that ho was not doing jus
tlcc to himself and others whoso in
terests It wbb due him to protect, to
accept an office that would take him
from Mt. Vernon for a long period of
time and probably do an irreparable
damage to his law practice, and that
finally he doomed It host to get out
of the race, and had written tho
above formal declaration that his
frionds throughout the county might
be advised In tho matter.
