Will Be Put Up by the West Virginia Democrats
PARKERBURG, W. Va., June 5.Enough delegates are here for the Democratic state convention to indicate that Judge John H. Holt of Huntington is in the lead for the gubernatorial nomination, with Judge Lewis N. Tavenner of Parkersburg second. Lewis and Flournoy have not formally withdrawn, like others heretofore in the race, but their headquarters show no such activity as those of Holt and Tavenner.
Ever since the arrival of John T. McGraw, who is a pronounced Democratic candidate for senator against Elkins, there has been a boom for Holt. Their friends announce that they have pooled their issues for governor and senator. It is stated that the Holt slate includes James H. Miller, Robert Armstrong, John W. Davis, Homer B. McKinley, A. N. Campbell and W. G. Bennett for the rest of the ticket.
