"McLaurln can do the state more
good right now than at any previous

shows that he has been converted and
makes due atonmont, the people may

for him to expect to get to the Senate,
at least not next year. He is not too
old1 to come hereafter perhaps. How

that be is no longer playing for bis

hopelessly stained If our people should
