the part he took during his first
term In the legislature, in support
of a bill that had for ita object the
cutting off of a slico of Lian coun-

Harris can probably show, how

regardless ef any local objections,
it Harris makes it plain he has cut
loose from party factionalism, he
will be a formidable candidate.
