The announcements of several
candidates appear in this issue
and we trust that due considera
tion will be given each one by
those who receive the paper.
Adhering to past policy The
News will keep in the middle of
the road. It is the medium
through which all aspirants for
office may speak on the same
footiug, whether they be Jew
or Gentile, Democrats, Republi
cans. Progressives or Prohibi
tionists. The announcement fee
of $5.00 is the consideration on
the part of The News while its
broad publicity is the returns to
the candidate. We see no rea
son for any one to longer with
hold his announcement if his
mind is made to enter the race.
If you want the support of those
who read The News present
your claims in its columns as
soon a? possible. It's a -matter
of business with every aspirant.
The attention of the Demo
crats of Adair county is called to
the announcement of Mr. Tan
ner Ottley, who is a candi
date for County Court Judge,
subject to the action of expres
sions of Democrats at the polls
at the August primary. Mr.
Ottley is a practicing attorney
and has been for ten or twelve
years, receiving his law diploma
from the Law Department of the
Virgina University. He also
studied law under the late Jus
tice John M, Harlan. Mr. Ot
tley resided at Burkesville be
fore coming to Columbia. At
the former place he was super-
intendent of The Life State Oil
Company and also practiced his
profession at the Bukersville
bar. Mr. Ottley is a genial cour
teous gentleman, possessing fine
ability and is in every way quali
fied for county Judge. He has
an extensive acquaintance m
Adair county, but before the pri
mary he will canvass all the vot
ing districts and will make an
effort to meet all the'voters of
the county, and especially those
with whom he is not now per
sonally known. Should he be
nominated andelected, ha promi
ses to. make: a faithful servant
for the people
The announcement of Dr. N.
M. Hancock, of Cane Valley, for
the Democratic nomination for
County Judge, appears in the
proper colum of this paper. For
several yearsTmany Democrats
have solicited the Doctor to ac
cept the responsibility of head
ing the Democratic ticket in this
county, but in every campaign
were disappointed. Under the
pressure of many solicitous Dem
ocrats and prompted by a desire
to render good service to his
party and his county he enters
the race subject to the action of
Democratic voters in the Au
gust primary. Dr. Hancock is
too well-known by the substan
tial people of this county to need
any introduction from us. He
served this county as deputy
clerk in early manhood and lat
er, by appointment, gave two
years time as'sheriff. His knowl
edge of county affairs, his (splen
did ability and impartial way of
honest investigation point him
out as a man amply able to dis
charge the duties of the office he
seeks in a highly creditable man
ner. As a Democrat he has
been consistentand unwavering,
always ready and willing to aid
his party by any honorable means
within his power. True to par
ty, courageous and faithful to
party and public duty we leave
his claims with the Democrats
of this county.
In the proper column it will be
observed that Mr. S. H. Mitchell
is a candidate for sheriff of
Adair county, subject to the ex
pression of the Democratic vot
ers of said county, at the Au
gust primary, 1913. Mr. Mitchell
needs no introduction to the
Democratic voters of this county,
as he is one of the best known
men in its boundary. He has
served the county as jailer, mak
ing a most efficient officer and
has also done a great deal of rid
ing for the sheriffs, hence his
name i3 familiar throughout the
county. There is not a doubt
but he would make a very ac-
ceptaDie snerirt. ne is a man
of honor and courage, full of en
ergy, and before the primary he
expects to see every Democratic
voter in Adair county, and per
sonally give his reasons why he
should be supported for said po
sition. In another column will be
found the announcement of Mr
A. A. Miller, who seeks the Dem
ocratic nomination for sheriff of
Adair county. Born and reared
in this county, interested in its
welfare and possessing the qual-:
ifications necessary for the posi
tion he seeks. The News intro
duces him to the many Dem
ocrats who may not be intimate
ly acquainted, as a Democrat of
sterling worth, worthy of the
confidence of h;s most ardent

friends. For several years he
has been engaged in business in
Columbia, and we all know him
as strictly straight, energetic
and competent. Further, no
party emergency requiring mon
ey or time has ever been discard
ed, but active and ready to re
spond at every call, he has borne
j the brunt of many hard-fought
battles in his precinct when the
hope of personal reward was on
ly a dim twinkle of a turning of
the tide in the unfathomed fu
ture A Democrat from princi
ple, a gentleman by birth, but
recognizing the uncertainty of
hope and aspirations, he will con
duct an honest, honorable fight
for the position he seeks. Should
the Democrats of this county
give him the nomination he
would be a strong man to go
against the opposition. Should
another be selected he will do
his duty without murmuring as
he has done in the past.
By reference to our announce
ment column you will find Mr.S.
G. Denny seeks the Democratic
commissions to. become Jailor of
this county. To these vho know
him he needs no indorsement but
to many who have never grasped
his hand we can cheerfully make
j the following statement. A man
of good natural ability, genial ;
disposition, active and courage
ous, he is well fitted for the po
sition he seeks. Few, if any
men, have more friends in the
bonds of acquaintance, which
besneak much as a gentleman
who directs weli his conduct as
a good citizen. As a Democrat
a consistent, persistent party
worker, who believes in on open
honest fight, both in an out his
party, he merits tho confidence
and esteem of all. He authorizes
us to state that he hopes to see
every Democrat in this county
before the August primary and
trusts that the party will give
him the nomination, but should
events place this honor on some
one else he will neither sulk nor
sullen but will do his duty bv
the entire ticket faithfully, hon
estly and courageously.
In another column will be seen
