Although I havo been assured of the
support of a large number of friends to

am the majority candidate as declared
in the caucus, I am convinced that my
continued candidacy for senator would
precipitate a deadlock and tend to dis

would require a long time to heal. For
a poriod of 40 years I have given the
party the warmest affection and the
best service of which I am capable. I
do not now desire any personal ambi

party harmony or of tho continued tri

therefore constrained to withdraw my
name as a candidate. In doing so,
desire to assure my friends and the
party of my continued zeal and active
oo-oporation in permanently securing
the important principles for which we
havo so earnestly contended.

tho loyal and genorous support which
they have accorded me. I earnestly
