Judge John Martin, who came out s ,uarely for an indorsement of the Peoples' ticket immediately after the Wichita convention, said this morning: "Every move the Peoples" party makes has a tendency to drive Democratic votes away. In the Third ami Fourth districts there is a sentiment in favor of indorsing the entire ticket, but in the congressional district where the Democrats were so openly snubbed, there is an element which cannot be brought to an indorseiiienL" David Overmyer said this morning: "The Democrats will indorse the P---ple's electoral ticket.
