Much Abused Man.
Ex-Senator J. L. M. frby Is a much
abused man. The press in the lower
part of the State hit him hard licks. A
good many people hit frby because ho
supplanted Gon. Hampton, forgetting
that Others were ready to do the same
tiling, but frby from sheer force of cir
CUmstnnci s was in the lead and out
stripped them in tho race. Wo have
no doubt that some of the haters of
[t'by would have rejoiced to have been
in his place.
If Irby did nothing while in tho
Senate, it !s not loss than many Sena
tors havo done lor a much longer
perio 1. Bui it can be Rai I to his credit
that he did no harm, he lent himsolf to
no scheme, no political moasuro to rob
01* oppress tho people. Much has been
said about Ins lack of ability as a leg
islator, hut there is good reason to be
lieve that he has boon underestimated
in this respect. So far as the Reform
movement is concorncd It would have
been hardly possible for the campaign
of 1800 to have BWOpt the State for the
Reform tieU'et had Irby not been on
the field with his ability as an or
ganizer, coalescing chaotic elements
and bringing final success to hi- fac
