that mlly ono-half of them condemn Den Hill’s
attack upon Senator Mabono yesterday as un
justifiable and Inexcusable. It Is feared that
tbo bitterness and venom displayed by Hill will

Democrat, opposed to Mabono, says thatMn
hono will get tbo sympathy of a largo number
of Democrats In bis state who are opposed to
bis political course, but wilt sustain him In
