In the Mir Wnltrr Hotel
Raleigh, A.ug. 3.—Enlarged interest
in the State Democratic chairman
ship is observed as the time for pick
ing this official approaches, but con
trary to popular feeling, the increase,
comes from supporters of J. C. B.
Ehringhaus, who are very' much more
concerned that he get a legislature in
harmony with him than that he a
leader devoted solely to him.
As the day of the executive commit
tee meeting is only a week off action
must be swift. There Is in Raleigh a
strong impression that Major L. P.
McLendon, manager for Mr. Ehring
haus. is first choice for the candi
date for gavernor. There is a second
hunch that C. L. Shuping, of Greens
boro. rates a close second. These hy
pothec assume that Congressman
Lindsay C. Warren would not accept
the election as chairman. But the
naming—*oA». Warren. McLendon or
Shuping woukh not mean hostility to
a Reynolds supporter. The first and
foremost consideration is a State cam
paign which will result in the election
of an Ehringhaus General Assembly.
The great majority of senators and
representatives in the lower House
have been nominated. But a few are
yet to be chosen. Since Mr. Ehring
haus had the party leadership gen
erally with him, it is assumed that he
will have an Ehringaus legislature in
