Here in advance of the main body

The aggressive and vigorous Shouse

This has resulted in the decision by
the Roosevelt men to present Shouse

of the convention.
Charging Roosevelt with bad faith
in the matter, Shouse, with the as

Believe Fletcher
. Has the Edge Over
Clarence Mitchell
• uv j. r. iuskf.rvii.t..
Raleigh. June 18. Because of the
lead of 1,396 votes which he had in
the first primary over his nearest op
ponent. Major A, L Fletcher is gen
erally regarded as having a distinct
advantage over Clarence E. Mitchell,
who was second in their run-off con
test for the Democratic nomination
for commissioner of labor, which will
end in the second primary of July 2.
For. while Fletcher was expected to
run ahead of the field in the first
primary .the size of his lead and the
nature of the support he received in
dicate to many that he is really a
formidable candidate. Much sentiment
for Fletcher was also apparent among
those who attended the State Demo
cratic Convention here Thursday.
The friends of Mitchell, howevep
are by no means discouraged and
maintain that Mitchell is going to be
able to surprise Fletcher and those
supporting him. Just as he surprised
them and almost every one else In
the first primary. They point to the
fact that before the first primary
most of the dopesters had Mitchell
picked to run either third or fourth,
but that with virtually no campaign
organizatio nand very limited cam
paign funds he surprised everyone by
running second and within less than
1.500 votes of the leading man.
The official vote for commissioner
of labor was as follows: Fletcher,
76,216; Mitchell. 74.820; R. R. Law
rence 60.433; John Norton, 44,349; W.
