Ci.lon, wbo bas jost returned from thc* 20th annual session <.l t ie V rglola Htat? Bar Association, was today asked by a reporter oftbe Gaaetti wbethM the announcement of tie candidacy of the present lieutenant governor, J, Taylor E lyson, for re? election to that office, would change bis .-purpose 11 be a caudidi.ti for tbe same office, tc which be repied. The office nf liciiti iiai.t-*,'f.vernor ls one of honor ?ind oct of emolument, and tbe universal cimtoui bas been for Ihe lieutenant governrr to retire with the governor, and at tbis tinne I do net recall a single in titanci io which tbe lieutjolant-goveruor has beenj reelected. Four years ago I was a candidate for this tffice, and had jrigr sscd toa considerable* extent in my chuvrs*, abeu Mr. Ellysin, all r haring previously declined t) become a candidate, announced his candidacy. Wben his annoiittcment was made public, 1 felt Hist owing ti his long per y ser? vice as cha i.nan of the state demoer-tic c.oimi.t i' lie bad 11 kims upon the party for rei'-I-.'ii'ie>t', and knew there was a atlMf sentiment in tbe State in favor of rewardiug bim fir such cervices, and in? j lluence I by these ciosiderstions with <irew in his favor, which action on my part was announced by me in the public press of tic !rt ?te. Mr. Elly ion having received and erj eyed tbe honor of tbe iiffier* lor the last four years, I do not now Itel there is any obligation upon mp ti nfl in r.tire in bis favor, and the announcement of his candidacy will not change my purpose to bs a candidate in the next gubernatorial cont ist for the t ffit-e of lieutenant-governor, and I de eire my friends not only st home, bat throughout tbe State, to know tba' I am and will remain a candidetj for that high office ui t<l the question is settled by the ileme.e i uic primary for the nomi? nation of a Stat-i ticket in 1901*. HATRED TURNED TO LOVE. Paiietit'y listening to tho ater/ el tbe courtship of h r daughter anti seeing no i ^i i'-.?.- en why she should not have the man ol ht r choice, Mrs. Rebecca 8h? r yes'cnlsy informed young Chsrlie Davis t lat as fer as the csso (.garnet h'm was c '"Jternc 1 nbc wu through with the jr esc u *. lt will be remembered Cut young l>*>vis was up before the police court a fi w days ago for pei jury. He was represented by Mr. R. D. Brum baek. He was fiued |10 and given 30 elaysin jiil by Justice Cst in, fr im which liocni'in i.n appeal was taken. Now as tbe mother, who caused the arrest, is perfect'}* wiling to let the matter drop, itnd as t'le young couple is living hap? pily in a fist on King s'reet, and as the boy is an industrious, honest fellow, it is generally supposed that the matter will be settled without further trouble.
