Mr. Harman, tho preacher-lawyer mem
ber of tho Sonate from Tazewell, ls hav
lng lots of fun out of the recent guberna
torlal boorh for hlm, orlglnated by somo
enterprlalng newspaper reporter. Tho
Btnator treats the matter as a Joke, and
hoa beon teased no llttlo by hls fcllow
mcmborB of the Commlttee for Courts of
Justlca. Ho promlsed those commlttee
mcti that when elected he would make
them all colonels on hls staff, and now
addrcsscs them all as "Colonel." At the
last meeting of the commlttee tho pros
pectlvo Governor called hls staff to or?
der and announced that ho had appllca
tlons for staff colonelcles from Mr. Wlck
bam and Mr. Halsoy. "What ls your
pleasure, gentlemen? Shall wo recelve
them?" aaked the Tazewell Senator wlth
"I movo that they be recolved on pro
batlon," Buggested one of the colonelfl,
and tho motion was carrted wlthout ob
"Hold on," said Senator Ople. "Here is
Judge Mann, who hss also been men
tloncd as a candldato for Governor. He's
a member of the commlttee also. What
are wo going to do about that?"
"I'll ask you all to Bcrvo on my staff
when I am elected," chipped in Judge
Mann, and this happy solution of the
dlfilculty suggosted by Mr. Opio was
hailed with entliusiosm, for it meant two
chnnces of a colonelcy to each member
of tho commlttee.
Thereupon, on motion of Colonel McII?
walne, the staff meeting was adjourned
nnd the secrotary was dlrected to notlfy
Colonels Wickham nnd Halsey of thelr
electlon on probatlon.
Afterwards Sennfor Ople proposed as
a composlte gubernatorlal tlcket for 1905
a tlcket^ whlch he said would certalnly
please the tomperanco people: Judge W.
H. Mann- for Governor; Hon. J. N. Har?
