Thcro arc reasons, nMdo fr6m his
treachery to the democratic parly, why
A. C. Hodges,' cVl , should .not, re-elected
to tlio onicc of County Judge.
Chief turning those is hi manifest, and
deplorable lack of ability. We aro not
of those who bclievo that Ignorance Is a
crime. In Judge Hodges' young dayH
Hchoola were very "common," and yet,
paradoxical as It may seem, wero very
acawe. Young men wcro denied quite
all the cducallonal privileges which dis

on tho contrary, we aro Inclined to oe
Ik'vethut the old gut!euiu did not, for
a moment, questian his right to furnish
h!s oOlee with a bed, and bed room fix
tures Thone who deny tliat this expenditure
was made Ignorsntly must uccept the
alternative, and acknowledge that It ai
made with a dishonest Intent, and, as wo
have already stated, there are not five
men in the county who will believe that
the o! 1 JuJge U dishonest.

fuct forms one of the chief objections wo
have to his re-election. We wauljunan
in the otllce who dor know better, and

kind, will bo conscious of Its enormity.
In short, tlio County Judge, of Alexander

of a good legal mind, aud n largo storoof

sites Judge Hodges docs not supply, aud
no one will, have the hardihood to claim
