Regarding the application for a

an opinion, as follows, has
^been given to the insurance eommis->

The State.
St. Matthews, May 5.?That Col. J.
A. Ba ks has no idea of entering the
i ace tor governor either as a warehouse
champion or otherwise or ask
for any other State office, but that
he desires to remain in the senate
was made plain in an interview with
The State's correspondent this morning.
Col. Banks is also pleased at the
idea tnai some means win ue jluuuu
whereby the merits of the warehouse
system can be given to the people
from the stump this summer, although
lie appears somewhat reluctant
that the warehouse commissioner
should be forced to ask for another
office in order to gain this right.
In the reply to the question as to
how he was pleased with the results
of the recent meeting of the warehouse
association in Columbia, the
senator said: "Very much indeed. It J
was singularly free from the suspicion ;
of factional politics; a business meet-j
ing pure and simple; the preserva- \
tion and extension of the usefulness
of the system to our commercial and
industrial life being its only end and
the only thing receiving consideration."
Asked how Commissioner McLaurin's
proposition to become a candidate
for lieutenant governor was re
ceived by the meeting, Col. Banks answered:
4 It was well received by a
few, but the great majority protested
rather vigorously that it was an office
tor which he was little fitted by rea-son
of his talent for strong constructs
e work."
Col. Banks was told that it was
rumored that in case the place for a
champion for the warehouse system
was disallowed on the stump this
summer along with regular candi- j
dates for State offices by the State ex
ecuuve commiiiee, anoiner meeting
would be "held. Asked as to what was '
contemplated to be done at such a !
meeting, and if it were likely that 1
McLauri.i* would be named as a can- 1
didate for governor, he said: "Xo one 1
can forecast with certainty the work j
of a convention of a representative j
body of business men. Personally 1 j
do not desire to see McLaurin in any
office except the one he now holds.
The only thing I feel reasonably sure
of is that the men composing our
association are a unit in their purpose
to have McLaurin make a campaign
this summer in the State warehouse
cause. A means to this end
will surely be found.'' 1
From various quarters it has been t
suggested that Col. Banks might be 2 |
candidate for governor or some other
V 7 . ' -1
State office as a champion of thg i
warehouse system a.d the idea seems
to have attained considerable dimensions
here of late. In answer to thfc
direct question as to what his intention
were in this regard, Col. Banks!
was unhesitatingly positive. He said: i
"I have not the slightest idea of run-f
ning for governor or ally other State'
office, either upoh the warehouse sys- j
tern or any other issue. I confess to!
a great desire to serve the ptkipla ofj
my State, and especially the agricul- j
tural people, with whom all my in- i
, - -1
leresis are concerned, l am convinced !
that my greatest means of assistance'
to them lies in my ability to aid in j
putting into operation in a successful
way the warehouse system. With
this in view, I shall spare no efforts to
perfect its usefulness. I feel that my
greatest opportunity to be of service
in this great scheme will come to me J
upon the floor of the State senate, and
I shall therefore seek reelection to!
the senate from Calhoun county."
Col. I?a ks was asked for a state-:

Speaker Clark, in a friendly humor- j

the ."topnotcher class mental pugilists."
He also wrote into the reco-rd
a statement that during a debate he
saw Cannon perform an unusual feat,
describing a complete circle 011 one'
