income from abandoned plantations to carry
out the programme of the Pomeroy se
cret circular, and was against the Adminis
tration, which gave him place; that nobody
believes he has retired as a candidate for the
Presidency, although he had_said so in a letter,
but is working underground and using his pub
lic position to promote his own political
schemes, thus running the Pomeroy machine.
