Congressman McLaurin, Reformer,

the present Ruling Ring in this State.
The letter has a healthy tone and patri

and as there is a dearth in State politics
the breezy air of the letter Is whole
some.' The patronage of the Governor
is dangorous and the constant creation
of new offices threatens what little is
left of decency In this State. The gist
of the Congressman's letter Is a warn
ing and so Intended, were It needed,
to all genuine reformors thronghout
he State. By the way, it is not a
posthatnus voice; ho is uot a dead cock
in tho pit. MoLaurin is elected to tho
