In all candor It doea appoar that the
party leaders aro ngalmt old Carro Gor

Why IsthliT
When McCreary defeated bid for Dor
ernor it was an open aeoret that the
party leadere were for McCreary and no
one denied that a majority of the instruo
ld tote the voice of the people was for
Williams
Why wero the leaders against him T
We hare no prejudice against party lead
ers but on the contrary a due reipecl for
tbem because as a rule those who leal art
men of intelligence and if they can giro
bny intelligent reasons for always oppoa
log Williams perhaps wo may approve
their opposition
TalheLindsay Wllliams race the Coo
ntin was enthusiaallcally for Lindsay
but It was a clear indisputable fact that
the large majority of the people ctI
deneed by meetings and Instructions
were for Williams and yet a majority cf
the leaders were for Lindsay Willlama
was elected by the Leglalature and yet
there Is no doubt but that Lindsay was
the personal India idual cheico of a ma
jority of the membsrs but members
oDtjrea nome instructions ami voted lor
Williams
Why It Is that the leaders appear lo be
arrayed egainel him we dont know cor
