The races attracting most atten
tion are those of Representative,
County Judge and Jailer. The
Sheriff race is too evenly bunched
to attract attention to any two of
the numerous candidates.
In the Representative's race,
Miller and White are the leading
men with Miller in the lead. It
is a straight out county unit
fight with Miller representing the
county unit idea clearly and dis
In the County Judge's race, the
stock of Rice has taken on a boom
and he is receiving many recruits
daily to his already strong forces.
The idea that the fiscal court is
entitled to some of the credit for
the good things done for the
county and that it should not all
be accredited to one man, is rap
idly gaining ground. He has al

masses and this time he is even
With the withdrawal of Judge
Greenleaf from the race for coun
ty attorney the stock of Crooke
shot skyward and he is running
to an eyelash finish. Jackson
and Crooke are tearing down the
homestretch, touching only the
high places, a nip and tuck race.
The last hour may see the finish
of either. At present the dust
they have kicked completely over

gentlemen. They are limping in
the rear. They claim that the race
is not always to the swift and

candidates are bestirring them

and has much to do with the en
forcement of law and order.
The good people of the county
should select a dry man and
make the race a distinctly dry

Elmer Deatherage will go under

As some of the candidates believe
in the use of whisky and money
in the elections to influence the
voters, they should not bfc averse
to coming out in the open and
making this election a clear cut
fight between whisky and money
on the one side and intelligence
and virtue on the other hand. If
whisky is such a good thing,
surely those using it secretly will
not be ashamed to do so openly.
Good people, make the issue in
this campaign Virtue and Intelli

and fight it out on these lines.
