Charlotte Lawyer Is Seriously Con
sidering Entering Senatorial Race;
Charlotte, Aug. 21.—Admission to
day by Col. T. L. Kirkpatrick. Char
lotte lawyer and civic leader, that he
is seriously considering entering the
campnign next year for the Demo
cratic nomination for the United
States senate as an opponent of Sen
ator Lee S. Overman, of Salisbury,
was considered tonight by a number of
his friends here as tantamount to an
actual announcement of his candidacy.
In discussing the probability of his
entering the campaign, Colonel Kirk
patrick declared that he would not
think of entering the lists against Sen
ator Overman provided the Salisbury
veteran was the only man in the race,
but when others jumped into the race
the colonel expressed the opinion that
the bars were down and intimated
that he would be one of the number
after the junior senator's toga.
Colonel- Kirkpatrick made special
reference to the general understanding
here that Robert R. Reynolds, of
Asheville, late candidate for lieuten
ant governor, would enter the cam
paign and intimated that if Mr. Rey
nolds seeks the place he also will run.
Colonel Kirkpatrick's anouncement,
or admission, of. his plan to run for
the senate came as something of a
surprise here, friends in his own bail
iwick having heard no previous remark
to indicate the trend of his political
While refusing definitely to commit
himself today, Mr. Kirkpatrick said
he would have a formal statement for
the public within a few days and it
was generally believed tonight that
| this statement would be his formal au
| nouncement as a candidate for the
senatorial nomination next year.
1 Colonel Kirkpatrick is one of the
[ leading members of the Charlotte bar,
president of the chamber of commerce

simplification of the government work,
and elimination of duplication, thus
, saving in his opinion money to the

Senator Wadsworth believes the in

a maximum of 25 per cent, including
