with painB in his heart and died in lees

and jurist ho was tho peer, if not the su

at Emory College, Ga.. nt an early
age, he boRan the practice of law in 1817,
but soon afterwards was called to tho
faculty of the University of Mississippi,
in which be served a year and thou returned
to Georgia, where he was eltcted
to the Legislature. In 1853 ho returned
to Mississippi and in 1857 was elented to
Congrew, in which he became a prominent
figaretill hla resignation to take
part in tho Recession convention of his
native 8 tote. Entering the arniy as soon
as hostilities wore declared, he rose to
the rank of colonel and was sent by the
Confederate government as commissioner

with credit and ability. He was
again elected to Congress and in 1877
was chosen U. S. Senator, which position
he held up to the time President
Cleveland appointed him to tho Supreme
bench, whero he as usual distinguished
himself. A Btudent by nature

rison a chance to put a republican in his
place on tho Supreme bench, or to show
his superiority to partisanship by refusing
to appoint and allowing the
administration to do so.
Tits caucus committee refused to ho a
party to the snap tactics of Judge Lindsay's
friends, who wanted the caucus
cilled for last Monday night, and fixed
it for tho nicht of Feb. 2. This was what
Gov. McCreary and Mr. Stone desired,
and was hut sin act of simple justice to
them. Judge Lindsay is n member of
the Senate and bus, or ought to have,
beeu in tbo body all the time, while
tho other gentlemen have been in Frankfort
a week to make the acquaintance
of the members, who have not hud
time to hear from their constituents on
the subject. At present Lindsay's voto
Is stated at 41, McCreary's 41 and Stone
17. There is no telliug what changes
will occur in a week, since the tendency
of the members seems to bo to desert
Lindsay for the other two candidates.
The tactics of tho Lindsay men wan to
make a rushing fight, 'aud failing in this,
they are losing their continence nun
grip. There is talk of dirk horses and
the possibility that Judge Harbin will be-come
an important factor in tho light,
hut we have confidence both in the good
sense of tho majority of legislators and
in McCreary's luck, and feel sure his
polo is daily lengthening to knock the
Tub surviving members of the 300 del
egates who, in 1SS0, sought to secure the
nomination of Gen. Grant for a third
terra and stuck to it almost to the last,
met at the Shoreham tlotel, Washington,
a day or two ago. Twenty-two
States weie represented and of the original
band it! was found that 250 are still
living, including our own Col. W. O.
Bradley. Resolutions eulogizing the
name of Grant and proposing the formation
of an association to ba known as
"The Old Guard," were adopted hihI tho
nece.ary arrangements for a banquet to
he given in Philadelphia April 27, the
anniversary of Gen. Grant'n birth, were
made. Here is a chanco for the Garrard
countytaian to further distinguish him-self
by adding to his other accomplishments
that of the finished post prandial
Ah President Harrison ami his party
beeni to be out for the stuff, the
of a Chicago lawyer that ho resian
so that Morton can become
president and appoint him to tho
vacancy on tho Supremo bench, caused
by the death of JuBtice Lamar, ought to
btriko him amidships. It might not be
exactly the proper thing for Mr.
to do, but as he is a good lawyer, aud
would doubtless make a hfetter judge
than any man ho will appoint, the country
would bo the gainer.
Tim Clark county democrats showed
their wisdom in adopting highly complimentary
resolutions to Gov. McCreary
and requesting their Senator Knd Representative-
to vote for him for Senator.
Lewis county also declared for him and
if the people had a chanco to give expression
to their wishes, a majority of
the counties would endorse our distinguished
Tiik necology of prominent people io
unusually large for the first mouth of
tho year. Gould, Kennn, Hayes.,
Brooks, Lamar, have all joined the
silent majority in the last few weeks.
Is their elTort to Bay something mean
nbont Gov. McCreary, tho opposition pa
pers make themsolvps ridiculous. They
ran find nothing vulnerable in his public
record, so they pounce upon his personal
appearauco and chaigo that he
shaves twice a day and oils his hair.
This terrific arraignment, if true, needs
looking into, and a legislative committee
ought to bt appointed to investigate. A
tmn guilty of such conduct ought not to
be sent to tho Senile.
