Should you have a short interview with Mr. Carter, you would conclude that he is a politician in the strictest sense of the term. He is shrewd, sharp, and wise. He is a fine speaker, and can entertain a crowd at a political meeting with good effect. His forte, however, as a speaker, is denunciatory. Give him Governor Alcorn, as his subject of denunciation, and friend Carter is at home. He can sound the name of James L. Alcorn in the bitterest and the most sarcastic terms imaginable. He hates him, and is continually warning the people against him.
