"We hae nought to say but good of the men who avp re defeated; for they AA-ent into the campaign to Avin. and, because S' they Ave re defeated, does not mean that they are msgruntleu. 1 hey are all good and loyal Republicans and will be found in the midst of the battle Avith their sleeves rolled clear above their el bows when the election occurs. James E. Watson Had no opposition in his race for congress. Much has been said of his ability as a member of the lower house and his record as a citizen, and Ave can add nothing here that would 'elevate him in the minds of the people. He is our own "Jim," honest, honorable and upright. Roscoe E. Kirkman Is a citizen of this city, and, in the senatorial race, had no opposition, lie lias been honored by the party at other elections, ha-ing been prosecut ing attorney of Wayne county, repre sentative, joint representative and iioav senator.

He is attorney for the C, G. & R. trac tion line and is blessed with a good laAv practice. That he will be elected goes without saying. Dr. M. W.

Myrick Jr. That the above named gentleman was nominated at yesterday's election was no great surprise, for who could withstand lien's pleasant smile, hearty laugh and warm handshake. As deputy in the treasurer's office he made friends with every one. He is a citizen without blemish and a man in every way worthy to be called a friend. ' lie was defeated for the same office once before, but his faith was un shaken, and yesterday's election proved the truthfulness of the say ing, "Stick to your friends." Frank C.

Robert A. Howard Never has any opposition in his cam paigns for county surveyor. He is one of our most reliable citizens and his Republicanism -is like the Rock of Gibraltar. Dr. S. C. Markley Came to Richmond a few years ago a perfect stranger. It was not long until his presence in our midst was felt: for he is a man of no mean ability in his profession, and it was soon recognized.
