Cross HI111, July 2-1.-The many rel
aives, friends and acquaintances here
of Capt. I-f. II. Watkins of Anderson,
are delighted over his success in w.ii
ning the judgship of this Federal
district. This honor and duty could
have fallen to no one more worthy
and honorable. The people and gov
ernment may rest assured that he
will wear it with credit to himself
and Justice to all. We have known
Capt. Watkins all his life, known
him in the home, in the school room,
on the play ground, in business, in
religious work, everywhere. le is
eminently trustworthy and has al
ways held himself in the higher
spheres of life and rigid integrity, an
other example of greatness, not be
cause of faborable surroundings, but
in spite of adverse community cir
cumstances. Others there are who
could fill the place with credit and
honor but none more worthy. Many
are able and deserving but few are
the superiors of Judge Watkins.
