Heveral mcmls-rs of the anti-administration faction stated th t they believed Mr McMillan would c*i iwtu to the us* of hi# name. A number of those on the other side s.iid they had heard II positively stated that auch would be the case. It may be said, however, that as yet no authoritative #(ap-meH has come from Mr. McMillan as to whether h- would or would not run. l\i view of the many re (Kjrts around the streets lo the effect that he would make the race, a representative rff the Mornlna New# asksl him ;>oinf -■l ly alout the matter yesterday. “1 am not prepared now to make an> statement,” Mr. McMillan replied, “as ihere are several matters to be tak*# Into consideration before a decision t# reached 1 will be ready within a day *r two to make a statement one way or the other, but at the present time It is Impossible for me to say anything definite.” It Is understood that Mr. M Mllian wrlli have a further consultation with hi#friends before making a definite statement.

It Is headed, In large black letters that extend across the top of the |*ige, and "Home Industry” I* re peated In letters scarcely less black on the line below “It has become necesaary.” the circular proceeds, "to call a meeting of the colored voters of the four city tnllltla districts, to come together once to secure protec tion for the colored eltlsens of Chatham county, and who reslly need the s> m|*u thy snd protection of all nation.
