her. It iH well known by the people
the State that Judge Fleming has bee
judge upon the Circuit bench for
years, ami in that position he has be
isolated from all active participation
politics and political discussions. 1
nomination for Governor was mi
while he Mill occupied his judicial p<
tion, without solicitation or canvass
his part for it. His attention, thereto
has been wholly directed to the <
charge of his judicial duties, and no!
obtaining such political information
would lit him for the general discus#
of the economic and political issues
volved in the present canvass.
Democratic Committee, under
circumstances, feels that it wc
1h* unfair to Judge Fleming to pi
him in it joint political discust
*#ithiu a few weeks from his retirem
from the bench without reasonable t
or preparation. General Gofl* has li

the important questions which now divide

parties have been largely formulated and

in advocating the views held by

being candidates before the |>eople, it
would be peculiarly appropriate and acceptable
to the people that the joint dis- .

We think it eminently proper 1
