THK BOLITAB COHVEHTIOH.
Yesterday we made brief mention of
. . f . 1 T ...! on
th. proe.ed.Dg. o, t -
ConserTaUve CooTention which resulted
in the nomination of Colonel a. c,.
Young as our nexf standard bearer in
the contest against negroized Radical
ism, and will add a few comments on
the happy consequences of its delibera
tions. The contest was necessarily close
nd exciting, and yet the delegates
separated with the most profound good
feeling toward each other. Although
Mosby, Arery and Fentress dereloped
considerable strength, the real senti
ment of the Convention was divided
between Lowt, Townsend and Young.
On the first ballot Townsend led the
Shelby delegation, and had he been per
sonally known in Fayette and Hardeman
bis nomination would have been almost
a certainty. In this county he has a
tower of strength, and there is little
doubt that he will yet receive the recog
nition at our hands that he so eminently
deserves. His services in the Bartlett
movement will never be forgotten by
our people. In the present canvass he
will be a warm and ardent supporter of
Mr. Young. The other candidates
Avery, Fentress and Mosby are well
known in the district, two of them hav
ing been prominent politicians previous
to the war, as was attested by their able
services in positions of public trust, and
the other having served with distinction
on the bench since the war. They are
men of ability and integrity, and will
work earnestly for the election of our
nominee. The nomination of Mr. Young
has been hailed with marked approba
tion by the people and the press.
He is a native of Madison ceunty, Tenn.,
but spent his earlier years juBt across
the border in Mississippi. In early
manhood he entered the 6eld of journal
ism, where for several years he served
with ability and distinction. Subse
quently he became a member of the
legal profession, and hai ever since been
an ornament to the bar. JJunng the
