The judicial conventional Pulaski
last week took its time about the do
inir of It, but after mature delibera
tion they .fid the rlarht thing in
choosing as their standard bearer,
and our standard bearer, and the
standard bearer for the Democracy
of thin judicial circuit, Judge Bam
None of his legion of friends in
Maury rejoice over his pre'erment
more than does the Herald, ur
his qualifications and peculiar fit
ness for the place, those who know
him best will testify, and those
who watch his future will never
doubt As a practitioner or advo
cate he might or miirht not rise
above the common level of his
brothers at the bar, but as a Judge
an unprejudiced, conscientious,
painstaking Judge; one who will
spare no pains in giving to the rich
and poor alike a fair and impartial
hearing; one who is not too wise to
learn, and yet may discern between
sophistry and logic; one who can
neither be bought, bulldozed nor
cajoled such a Judge as that he will
be, and with the best in tho State
he will take his rank.
Not only do we rejoice over his
preferment and for his sake, but the
manner of it, and for the sake of the
district. There has never been a
convention in this district where
the personnel of it was more repre
sentative of the best interests of the
people. The schemer and political
trickster were conspicuous by their
absence, and to such an extent as to
bring forth comment. Men of such
personal integrity and high stand
ing as Judge Patterson represented
Judge Broyles, while representa
tive of and leading the Williams
forces were the Hon. Newt White
of Giles, Dr. Harvey and Tom Mer
rideth of Lawrence. And through
out the long sessions and tedious
balloting, not a "sharp trick" was
tried, not a mean advantage at
tempted, not an unkind word
spoken. They simply, each and all,
arurued and discussed the merits of
their respective choice, and when
the final round up came gave the
trize to the one who reflected the
choice of the majority.
That such a nominee, made by
such fair means, under such har
monious circumstances, by a Dem
ocratic convention in a Democratic
district, will be triumphantly
elected, goes without saying.
Those who boast most are those
who otherwise would possibly be
lost to sight. The truly great never
boast; they do not need to. It is
the mind that is too small to under
stand its relation to other minds,
that vaunteth Uself to be something
great ; and because it is so small it
is usually alone in its self-glorifying
opinion. To do und then to be con
tent, whether the doing becomes
known or not, is to be great. But to
do some trifling thing and then out
rageously cackle about it, is not
only to be small but to appear small.
It is better to abide by the sober
estimate of our fellows than to con
fuse their minds and disgust them
by our vain gloryings. Granting
that our work ha9 value, some one
will surely arise to express ap
preciation of its honesty and sim
plicity. Even earth-worms have
had a Darwin to explain the potency
of their doings. But it no praise
comes, what matter? The heart
that feels its own purity of inten
tion, is not without an inner reward.
The surest way to a downfall is to
boast, because the very eelf-con
fldence of the boaster prevents him
from making the most ordinary and
common-sense preparations for dif
Acuities yet to be faced and deeds
yet to be done.
Let us give this thought a strong
and timely turn. Nationally we
need it; for by unfortunate chance
many men unprepared by study, tin
ripe in judgment, ignorant of his
tory and its teachings blatant
boasters are, during these days of
national testing, writing head-lines
and editorials for some of the most
read American newspapers. They
are causing at home and abroad a
most unfortunate estimate of our
national worth, and they not only
threaten to, but actually do make
us look ridiculous in the eyes of the
world. Nor this only, but they sin
against us all and against the gen
erations yet to come, by giving us j
false opinion of ourselves.
Our nation is too great and has
too much reserve possibility of fu
ture greatness to be worthily led in
iuopinions by writers of noisy head
lines that twist the capture of a
freighter into a notable achieve
ment, or who magnify a skirmish
into a naval engagement, or who i
describe everything, either good or
bad, in terms that are never less J
One ecribbler for a paper that
boasts a circulation "the irreatest in
the universe," railed the Manila ex
ploit "the greatest naval engage
ment in the history of the world."
Such a writer is in the condition of
an illiterate man who known noth
ing except what has happened dur
ing his own life-time. From
Semiramis to the time of our own
late war, there have been a dozen
naval engagements that have effect
ed the map of the world mire than
this one will. Allowing that it is
the flist decided battle between
modern warships though Chili.
Peru, Brazil, Japan and China have

unequal to us in number of guns and
weight of metal though outnum ber
ing us in ships, and unprepared with
trained gunners. The last man to
over-estimate it as a conclusive test
of modern warfare would he brave
Admiral Dewey himself. Blasting
i9 excluded, but the thing to be
thankful for is that his courageous
entry of the harbor was made justi
fiable, because the Spaniards were
not even able to explode their sub
marine mines at the proper moment
of effectiveness. Had they succeed
ed in damaging him, these very
same journals of ill-balanced, iil-
bred, brainless boy-men would have
held ghost-dances over the grave of
Before we accept the boosting
standard as one to rally arouDd.
let us bear in mind that we are in
combat with a seventh-rate power,
whose finances are in terrible con
dition, and whose unreadiness is ex
traordinary. If our gaee of battle

of this year to some other European

Then again, let us ask ourselves
what this war is about. By every
cnnoressional declaration, we must
suppose It to be a deed of mercy to
wards a suffering and down-trodden
people otherwise would we certain

LATEST WAR NEWS.
The dispatches coutain accounts
of the bombardment of the forts at
Santiago de Cuba Monday. Four
warships under Commodore Schley,
attacked the new earthworks to the
west cf the Estrella and Catalina
batteries, while five warships, under
Rear Admiral Sampson, attacked
the new earthworks to the east of
Morro castle. The ships lay well
inshore and silenced the Spanish
shore batteries. El Morro was
damaged, despite Admiral Samp
sou's orders not to fire at it because
of the danger of killing Lieut. Hob
son and his crew. The Vixen and
ouwanee went far in and silenced a
small inshore battery. Estrella fort
was silenced early, being set on fire.
Cavo battery was silenced and
eurthworks above it shelled. Fire
in the Catalina fort silenced the
guns there. Not an American ship
was injured, not a man killed and
ouly one wounded.
Although it has not yet been offi
cially confirmed, it appears that the
report of the sinking of a Spanish
torpedo boat off Santiago last Mon
day nignt, is true. There Is some
doubt as to the name of the boat, but
in all probability it was the Terror,
the most powerful boat of its class
in the Spanish navy. Dispatches
from the New York Herald's cor
respondent at Port Autonio state
that the boat was trying to run the
blockade at Santiago, when she was
discovered by the Texas, and all the
boats in the fleet opened fire. , A
thousand-pound shell from the Ore
gon struck the stranger full on the
deck amidships, immediately sink
