There is always a mean feel- bur towards a bolter whether he bs the candidate himself or his most ardent sup porter and the fact that a man has ever ecratched a ticket or bolted a nomination, is assiduously worked ogainat him when ever he bscomes a candidate for any office in the gift of the party to which he owes allegiance.
