A friend of Gov. Catts informs us
that the charge of the DeLand News,
that the governor has gone back on

fluence influence to Sholtz in the Volusia coun county
ty county senatorial race, is unjust to the
governor, who thinks the Volusia sen-
atorship is a matter to be decided
strictly by the people of that county-
It's not for the Star to dispute this
statement. No doubt the governor's
friend knows more of his mind than
we do. The charge made by the News
however, was based on the" same sort
of circumstantial evidence that Mr
Catts and his supporters were fond of
using against his opponents during
the f recent campaign. It is this: An
article, signed by Joe Earman, ap
peared in Joe Earman s paper, the
Palm ; Beach Post, boosting Sholtz for
senator, damning ; Alexander ; ; with
faint praise and -ridiculing Dr. Hul-
ley. Now, it is generally believed that
Joe Earman is the governor's dear
friend, and it is not unreasonable to
suppose that his paper is the gov
ernor's organ. It is accepted as such,
anyhow, and will be as long as the
governor holds Joe on his lap and
feeds him with sugar plums. So far
as the Star is jconcerned, it is willing
to accept the defense of the governor
made by any of his sincere and well
posted friends, but we cant help re
membenng that few of the said
friends were willing to accept any de
fense make of Mr. Knott Jby his
friends two years ago. There is a
saying .that with what measure you
mete unto ; others it shall be meted

a preacher, is doubtless familiar with
