of state pride.
General Mandersou's ability, or qualifications
for the exalted posit ion, are not questioned, and
those who are personally acquainted with him will
not be candid in charging him with insincerity in
permitting his name to be used. We are firm in
the belief that should the exigencies of the repub
lican national convention make it impossible
either to nominate McKinley, Reed or Allison
that Charles F. Manderson stands a better show
than any of the other men mentioned. You may
put us down in this matter as unconditionally for
