r- AN UPRIGHT JUDGE.
In this issue appears the card of
o. Judge F. F. Montgomery, announcing
tn himself as a candidate for re-election
to the office of district judge. The
a able and efficient manner in which the
s. Judge has discharged the duties of his
office, combined with his proverbial
S impartiality and correctness in decid
ing all legal points in the trial of cases,
makes any introduction of him to the
as publhc unnecessary; and this is partic
s. ularly evidenced by the fact that in
!, Madison, as in East Carroll, his quali
b, ficatiousa as a judge are highly spoken
)r of. With an experience of eigbt years
e ion the bench, he stands before the
n, people again, and we are of the opitn
es ion that he will prove a most formida.

at Madison parishes are awake to their

of Montgomery without a dissenting

ry dation of a man who has dealt out im
partially justice to all for the past
)e eight years. Every colored man with
ig an ounce of manhood should give him
