Now, Mr. Editor, Dr. Pope is in the
race for our next Governor. And be .
has said that be is in the race to Itay.
I don't .see bow you can stay on the s
fence any longer. You stated when f
Dr. Pope's name was first mentioned
for Governor that if he was a candi- f
date you could not go back on your E
own county, but you wanted to take .
up the man this time that would win.
I am in hopes, Mr. Editor, that you
still retain tnis same idea. It is true d;
that Dr. Pope has been a Reformer S
ever since the Reform movement has t1
been on foot, But we must not stop to le
ask ourselves which faction he belongs tt
to, or what part of the faction is doing w
the most damage; we must select a hi
man to put in'front who can bring the d
people back to that friendly feeling st
which existed prior to the revolution
of 1890-and we feel that Dr. Pope is NL
the right man to do it. Why not old la

doomsday, and we will never have it ti
until the minority is willing to fall in cc
line with the majority. When we a
select men to fIl such honorable, re
sponsible and high positions,- we should
select just such men as Dr. Pope. whose
heart nas always been in the upbuild

ambition has always been to do the
greatest good to the greatest number.
