candidacy of Miss Dora Smith to sue ceed herself for the office of Superin tendent of Schools of Fulton County Subject to the action of the democrat primary TilE SITUATION In our opposition to the candi dacy of Judge Kearby for reelection a few of our citizens seem to think that some person ality has been injected but this is not the case Our opposition has risen after many interviews with men in all walks of life who have been more or lest prominent in local affairs for years and is based upon the unalterable be lief that he cannot win Tuis conclusion has not been arrived at hastily nor with any personal prejudice of the editor of this paper but has been reached after a thorough canvass of the situation front leading mien and prominent democrats from all parts of the county The Courier being a Hickman paper desires Ilickman menor at least those who are known to be friendly to Hick manin office and as it is a fore gone conclusion that Mr Kearby cannot win it is opposing his candidacy in order that a strong er man may be placed in the field and the Fulton candidate defeat ed With two candidates from this end of the county neither of whom can even make a respectable t showing in the pivotal Gayce precinct we do not see how anyone can anticipate success against the one candidate from the east- ernV end of the county who ifr present conditions prevail at the primary will cross the Mobile = Ohio railroad and come almost to the very doors of Hickman with a majority that would require nearly every vote in Hickman the Bend and Sassafras Ridge to Qyercome When you consider 4 the present situation knowing the votes of the List named pre cincts will be divided between two Hickman men where does Hickman expect to get the sup port that will elect either of her candidatesSome our people favor ignoring the primary and putting out an independent candidate against the nominee in the regu Jar election but this is believed tto be a poor plan and not com fmensurate to our needs Many would be drawn into the primary and having participated would be in honor bound to support the nominee thereof By this means numberless votes would be lost to the Hickman candidate who wcre they to consult their own wishes would prefer to vote for sonic other candidatei but having taken part in the primary could not in justice to their consciences do as their hearts dictated True an independent candidate has overwhelmingly defeated the re gular democratic nominee in this counts for another oiiice but under far different conditions and we do not see that that race can consistently be tided a5 a criterion with which to measure tire present one It is the belief of many of the most prominent men in local politics that a better plan is for Hickman and her friends in the county to get to gether put out a candidate sup port him to a man and nominate him in the primary This would seem the wiser course and it can be successfully carried out by concertedaction In the interest of Ilickman and the western portion of Ful ton county there can hardly be a man who would not or should not sacrifice his personal ambi tions It is not a small thing to do especially when the aspirant wilLbepie for aiding his town to win than for running a useless race and being defeated at the polls thus losing everything Sonic candidates have exalted ideas of twice honored by the votes of the people and seem to consider the offices to which they have been elected as their personal property With these such a thing as a sacrifice for the rood of the party is unknown and cannot be expected but if they are conscious of tjie true relation ship they bear to the people by whose suffrage they hold office and draw pay they will not hesitate to step to one side In truth it is a duty they owe the peopleThe situation is one that re quires unaminity of action on the part of Hickman and her friends if she would have c unty officers who are friendly disposed toward her Without it she can expect nothing but defeat and a court house full of Fultonites whose future actions can consistently beforetold by their past Without concert of action the result is inevitable This explains the situation as near as we can ascertain It can be changed by the people of this end of the county It has the votes to do it with All that is needed is concerted action Will you do it AUUUT THAT BUND H M Kearby candidate for reelection as county judge made an effort last w ek to reply to the Courier His articl is about the worst jumble from an argumentative standpoint that we have ever seen in public print and shows up a side of his char acter that has heretofore been unknown His basis of argu ment is however that be cause some circuit judge way back yonder somewhere fixed rJ mans bond at a figure below thE minimum amount of the penalty he could do the same thing that because this circuit judge did it he did it He does not claim that thE bcni V I fixed is right and lawful t nut says he fixed it under a prece nt established by the circuit crt That is his argument Judge Nearby knew no tt of the cass in tha circuit COUrt cited by him in his defense un til the week following hisding asked to explain his actioj b y the Courier if attache of the court house are IqTbe believed Then he begina systematict search of the re gds to find some rule or precede t to sustain his action In his s arch of the circuit court record lu found what he wanted and paraded them before the p ople as the basis of suchaction The reason thAt Judge Ke rby treated our first editorial ith silent contempt was beouse he knew of no defense to mike lie condescends to second because heUlePIituUw wonderful light t cuit court records Nowhor in his article does ho claim that his act was warranted by either the constitution or the statutes Lie does say there is nothing in the constitution against a Judd or judges to being Ile evidently means lenientII is nothing in ion which prevents a judge from be ing lenient Thatstatemen destroys the whole fabric of his argument and he tacitly adjusts that he was lenient This ft all we have claimed Why did Judge Kearby show leniency andso much of itto a criminalfor the law compels him to suppose that a man charg ed with crime is guiltywhom the people know was not entitled to it That is the question and it remains as much unanswered now as before the jud e writ the piece for the paper Speaking of the constituth there iis a clause which says sufficient bail shaH be required Perhaps the judge in his hate has overlooked this but itttii there and it is that clause of I constitution which has I I trampled under foot in thjj s To The Public Having bought the HickiKHj Courier from its former owners 1Mesdameseluding all right title and interest good will and subscription ilist I respectfully ask a continuance of the very liberal patronage now and in the pasten joyed by the paper Upon his suming charga at the expira tion of the lease under which
