Candidate For Representative.
Judge F. S. Moore, of this city,
telephoned the Courier from Fulton
yesterday that he had decided to
make the race for Representative
from this district composed of Ful
ton and Hickman counties.
It is not probable there is a man in
either county who is better suited to
the duties of this office, and the
Judge's home county will doubtless
attach the seal of approval by giv
ing him her hearty endorsement.
He is one of staunch supporters of
Jeffsrsoman principles, and one of
the few men who never cease to
"whoop'er up" when it comes to a
show-down for the interests of Demo
cracy. If the party can owe an in
dividual for services rendered, it is
under obligations to Moore.
Judge Moore is a man of good,
sound, practical judgment, in ad
dition to his thorough knowledge of
law, and these are elements that
should enter the make-up of the
man who represents any people.
As stated elsewhere in this is
sue, a convention will be held at
at Clinton, March 24, for the pur
pose of making the nomination for
this office. Delegates from the var
ious precincts are to be chosen on
It is probable that other aspirants
may bob up between now and the
convention, but not likely in Fulton
It is Fulton county's time to fur
nish a Representative.
Home Talent "Makes Good"
The musicale given under the
auspices of the Literary Circle,'
Tuesday night, at the opera house,
was a rare treat, indeed. The pro
gram of 14 numbers reading, vocal
and instrumental music was rend
ered to "a queen's taste" from start
to finish. One would have to search
a long time to find a city of equal
size possessing as much musical
talent as does Hickman.
This entertainment was to have
been given last Friday night, but for
some reason, was postponed until
the following Tuesday. This, now
ever, did not keep the attraction
from drawing a good house. The
receipts, clear of all expenses, was
$41.00, which has been donated to
the book fund of the Carnegie
Library, We regret that limited
space forbids the personal mention
to which each of the performers are
