He has made no formal announcement as yet, nor has he outlined a platform on which lie will run, but he has taken out peti- tion blanks and his friends say they believe he can defeat W. L. Fiesinger and William Leitz, also candidates for the democratic nomination. This makes the race for the nom- ination a three-cornered affair at the present time with the prospect that other candidates may yet get in.
