Columbia, Oct. 28.-The following
statement has been issued by Lieuten
ant Governor A. J. Bethea, relative to
his candida,cy for governor, in which
lie says that lie held no caucus during
Fair- week or at any other time:
"I am absolutely and unalterably op

method in politics. Others may do as
they please, but as for mc, I propose
to make my appeal directly to the peo
ple, as I have heretofore done, and I
ain willing to commit my cause to
their hands. It may be well, however,
for those who caucus and plot in so
cret places to remember that the sov
ereign peop are going to have some
thing to say about the election in 1918
and that they are entirely competent
to do their own choosing. It is also
well to rememlber-4though those who
form cliques (10 not believe it-the

ever reproduced on the screen is the
visualization of Hoffman's wonderful
painting, "Mary Magdalene Brought
Defore Christ," which will be shown
in the Metro wonderplay starring
Dthol 'Barrynore, "The Lifted Veil,"
which will be seen at the Opera
'louse on Tuesday.
The picture is first seen as a stain
ed glass window in the -church where
the heroine played by 'Miss -Barrymore,
is worshipping. Impressed -by the
powerful sermon, and the sight of the
sun breaking through the stained
glass picture, the picture itself seems
to assume life in 'her mind's eye.
The figures of the painting are seen
to move and the vhole impressive
scene, when the mio) drags Mary
Miagdalene before Christ, is acted be
fore the spcctator upl) to the moment
when Chri't sthanmes the -woman's
enptors with the words: "Let him that
is without sin among you cast the first
