air surrounding the resignation of Mai.

about time there was soine airing of

people believe, or appear to believe.
that polities has played its part in ap

stoutly deny it. What are the faets?

"Representat ions are beltng ima

The above statemtet is ('ontained1(
anl ed11torial in The Cotlumbtia Iecord
the gubernatorial cni ampi :-ni. We I'1
siume that The Rlecord Is correct a
I t.t these trejiresent at ionsl ate be'i

why supp~lorte rs of Mr'. C oopier shot
biother themisel ves about any sti

mary last year from whIch the re
tive strength of the t wo candIdates
the Piedlmont may be arrIved at, she
that Mr. Manning has, not a great. d
of ground to lose. Supporteirs of:
Cooper in this~ sectIon wIll agree t
'Glr. MannIng will get quite a few vo
in this sectIon that he did not get
the first primary last year,
to say that Mr. Manning has ever 1
a decided strength in the Pledm
'would be a rIsky asserton indeed,
'is quite true that due to a very
,enious newspaper prolagaInda, to
svhich this paper has referred be
ore, the linpIession was created that
\lr. Manning had niade wonderful
,trides inl popularity in the l'iedilont,
liut evidence of this predicted poplulari
ty did not miaterialize at the eamnpaign
tneetittgs, if we are any judge of news
paper and personal reports. It so Ithap
itlned that Mr. .anning only attended
those Inectinigs in the I'ledinont w here
he had a right to at icipate a hearty
wte.j (.loile. but even at, those mleetings
there w\as-; no t'retLrt of of 'er\whtellinig
.\anntiing sentitient. Int fact. as soot) as
the catpitigIl opened, tle'e was alt at
solte stop of the .\anning "ovations"
titring the previots few weeks. Ad
In inrers of Mt. Manning, wet think, (on
lused te ltomage and respect which
pay to Ilie governor of the stale with
pays to the governor ot the state with
political stupport, a confusion on which
many a catlllpaign ttay he misjudged.
Of course it. would he rank foolishness
for anyone to claiin that. .\fr. mlanning
will not get lIore votes in the first
primiary this year than he did in the
first primary in I911, but we fail to
see any. indieation whasoever t.hat lie
will poll a vole anywher e in tit'. iteiglh
ic'!ihoodt or .\lr. ('ooper's. Mr. (t'oopler
polled lhr to his o n ll in 1 1 i l i this
section, with itree hole candidates
in the race, Mlessrs Irby, Clinkseales
and Btrowning. The f'acl that .\I r.
Manning did not lke I single speech
in the 1'edu ont dttring I l e' anlilaign
recess, alhougil he spent severai days
in the P'iedIont counties, is in itself
an on)linous sign of his weakness. A
tew tuore "ovations" in the l'iedilont
right. at this timne wolid doubltless have
furnished his publicity agent witli good
atiut, while we are on "rep'lresenta

to another one. \\'c uinderst and
