Mr. Withycomhe a man who possessed
in a very large degree all of the stor

A great many of the politicians said
he wouldn't do, that he didn't know how
to play the "game" and .that no man
was eligible to the position of gover-er-nor
who wa not a practical difi-cian.

met with favor in the rural communi
