STOCKSTILL FOR COUNTY SUPERINTENDENT OF EDUCATION. One of the most important -offices to be filled in the county by the elections next Thursday is that of Superintendent of Education, a position which necessa rily must be filled by a man fitted both by aptitude and experience; a man who has for years given his very life to the cause, and a man who is so qualified that at all times and in particular times he can cope with the many issues and con ditions that may arise. Such a man is W. W. Stockstill, the present incumbent, who is a candidate tor re-election. That he should be elected, is a tribute due his efforts in behalf of the children and schools of Hancock county, for the welfare of whom he has worked in and out of sea son. The schools of Hancock are in good hands, and our fathers and mothers, the tax-payers, cannot afford to seek *pew experiments. Mr ; Stockstill is a man of mature age, a man of family and a man in whose care can be trusted our educational interests. Asa supervisor of our schools and teachers his tenure of office has been pre-eminently a suc cess, save those oversights, if any, that are being magnified by political ene mies, court house rings and cliques. The evidence of the most successful school systems in every section of the country and of the most successful county, town and district systems in the South proves conclusively the necessity and the wisdom of competent supervi sion. Without competent supervision and direction no great business can suc ceed. This business of education is no exception to the rule. Each county sys tem of schools must have a competent head. It can rise no higher than its head. The supervisor of the county system should be a man trained to his work, with ability to make and execute plans for the improvement and training of the public school teachers to direct campaigns for education of public sen timent on educational questions, and for the advancement of public education along all needful lines; to advise, stimu late and properly direct school commit teemen and other school officers; he should be endowed with tact, wisdom, common sense, character, grit, ability to get along with folks and to command the confidence of teachers, officers, chil dren and patrons. In a word, this man occupies the real strategic point in all this work of public education in the South today. He must be a many-sided man, possessing not only professional training, but rare qualities of leader ship. The work is difficult enough and delicate enough, the responsibility great and sacred enough, to require the entire time, thought and energy of the most competent man, the entire consecration of every faculty of his head and heart and body. It is for this reason we wish to con tinue the services of Mr. Stockstill, pos sessing, as he does, all of these -ideal qualities. He also fills Dr. Chas. D. Mclyer’s estimate of a county superin tendent: “The County Superintendent ought to be the livest man and the most influen tial leader among his people. His work, more than any other work in the com munity, needs a man of great tact and energy. He should be a man who can win the confidence of the intelligent, lead the ignorant and illiterate, and give help to the plodding men of mediocre ability and position. In an argument on general questions he should be to hold his own with the strongest pro fessional or commercial men he may chance to meet; and in the discussion of educational questions he should be more than a match for them.” Not to re-elect Mr. Stockstill would be a reflection upon the intelligence of the people of Hancock County and would stamp them as ungrateful and un mindful of their best interests. But we need not tell you nor suggest to place your “X” mark opposite the name of W. W. STOCKSTILL, as it will appear on the ticket next Thursday. Your in telligence and better judgment has al ready told you so. Don’t be mislead! CASTOR IA Fbr and. Children. Tin Kind You Han Always Bought Mature of BAY SAINT LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY. JULY 37. 1907. AN ADDRESS TO THE VOTERS OF HANCOCK CO. Hoa. M. A. Tate, Next Cleric of tie Coarts of Hancock County, Tells Why He Skoold Be Elected —Let Your Reason and Sense of Jus tice be Your Guide, Then on Thursday Next Vote For Morris A. Tate. Hon. Morris A. Tate, candidate for the office of clerk of the courts of Han cock county, has addressed the follow ing to the voters of the county. It should and will appeal to every intelligent vot er and is food for reflection and action as well on Thursday next. Mr. Tate’s address is as follows: “Dear Sir:— “Having become a candidate for the office of Circuit and Chancery clerk of Hancock County, I have entered into the race to win, and, to accomplish this, HZ . > I ?;■] :■ y\ V . YOUR SUPPORT CORDIALLY SOLICITED. it is only possible with th e support of my friends and of the voters generally of the County, an and to you I write solicit ing your support, vote and influence, and 1 feel that my request, which I re 7 spectfully make, will not be in vain. “Being a Hancock County, “boy”, born and raised ngnt here at home, I feel all the more a claim upon the kind consideration of my follow-citizens and voters, and if you favor a change where a man has held the one office nearly all a lifetime, or, to be more exact, nearly thirty years, then I feel sure you will cast your ballot for me for clerk of the courts on Thursday, August Ist. “The various offices of the County are supported by tne people and are for the people, and these should be held by the people, and not by one individual, as if that one man were a trust, combine or monopoly, to hold it for once and all time, as if it were a private business or a kingdom inherited. Further, one man holding office for thirty years is not Democratic, but, on the contrary, smacks of despotism, im perialism, and is a dangerous precedent we are setting for future generations. “My claim for the office is a just one. Rotation in office is prin ciple of the Democratic party and a principle of moral ethics which you, I feel sure, as well as every other right thinking man, will approve. •‘I further beg to state that I am not connected in any shape, manner or form With other candidates. lam running solely on my own merits and in my own interest, supporting no other candidates, and I feel a disposition that is friendly, and entertain ,the kindliest feeling to* wards all others running for office. “It has been said that if I were elected I would use my influence as an official of the County towards the removal of the Courthouse or to create a separate court district. I -want it understood that the removal of the Courthouse, or a division of the County is not an issue in my campaign for clerk If lam elected, I shall have an eye only to the faithful performance of the duties of the office. I shall not assume the authority or po sition of a dictator to the people, but will submit to the will and pleasure of the majority of the voters, who would naturally be the judges of such a move ment. “My chances of election, from the present outlook, to say the least, are en couraging; but, to make my success more certain, I must have the support of the majority the individual vote as well as the vote in general, and for the Individual vote, if you see your way clear to do so and think my claim in the . name of common justice is right, I am writing you, and, in advance, I thank you deeply and beg to assure you of my appreciation. If elected, I will carry out the duties of the office faithfully, conscientiously and promptly, and will show neither favoritism nor disfavor, but will carry out my obligations as a public servant to one and all alike. “Thanking you for your vote and support, lam “Yours respectfully, “M.

Strong Resolution* Adopted Endorsing Leflore Comty’s Favorite Son for United States Senator, Whose Elec tion Promises Far-Reaching and Beneficial Result*. An enthusiastic meeting of the friends of Governor Vartlaman was held at the law offices of McClurg, Gardner and Whittington last Ihursday evening at Greenwood. The meeting was not ex tensively advertised, hence a great many of the Governor’s warmest friends were not present, nevertheless the meeting was a representative one and one that any candidate might feel proud to have assembled in his honor. General Mon roe McClurg was elected chairman of the meeting and Mr. H. B. Dixon sec retary. Appropriate remarks were made by Hon. W. S. Barry, Dr. W. T. Mat thews, Dr. G. B. Stewart, General Mc nhirg, Dr. C. N. D. Campbell, Messrs. W. S. Marye, Walter Pillow, D. C. Peteet, W. R. Bell, J. W. Quinn, C. C. Money, J. T. Spivey and others. The following resolutions were unani mously adopted: “W e, the citizens of Greenwood, Miss., cake great pleasure in ascribing the fol lowina reasons for devoting our interest and pledging our support to James K. Vardaman’s splendid and brilliant can didacy for United States Senator. “1 —He is our own distinguished fel low-citizen, of whom we think any city of the nation might be proud. “2—He is a Democrat of faultless rec ord and faithful allegiance to his party, and both as a priyate citizen and as an officeholder he has constantly espoused and defended the highest moral, politi cal and economic interests of the com mon masses. “3 His record as Governor of the great State of Mississippi has been in every sense wise and aggressive for the interest of the people and has challenged and impelled the admiration of his po litical enemies. “4 James K. Vardaman, by his splendid championship of the white man’s political and social supremacy, has attracted the eyes of the nation and has given Mississippians the opportu nity to speak their protest against the open policies of the U. S. Constitution. “5 —He is the first man in the South or in the nation who has dared to make his race for Federal office on the issue of the repeal of the “War Amendments” to the U. S. Constitution as the para mount question in his platform, thereby giving Mississippians their first oppor tunity to say by their ballots that Re construction was wrong and that the “Negro Amendments” to the Federal Constitution were a disgrace to the Anglo-Saxon race of the South. “6—The North accepts the issue be tween James K. Vardaman and his op ponent, Mr. Williams, as an open and shut question as to whether Mississippi, by the election of James K. Vardaman, will repudiate the “Negro Amend ments” to the U. S. Constitution or, by the election of Mr. Williams, Mississippi will, after forty years, RE-RATIFY these Amendments which were forced upon her with all the other ills of recon struction days. “7 —James K. Vardaman is the only son of the Confederacy who has given Mississippi or the South au opportunity to protest against the disgraces and in famies that were heaped upon her in the helpless aftermath of a war in which she accepted honorable defeat. “B—Since the repeal of the 14th and 15th Amendments to the U. S. Consti tution is the paramount issue of his campaign for election, and since the North looks upon this Senatorial con test in Mississippi as a test of Southern sentiment on the repeal of these Amend ments, we regard that Mississippi owes it to herself, the South and the Nation, to' elect James K. Vardaman by such overwhelming odds as to speak into the ear of the Nation a protest against the burdens and dangers to the South of the open policies of the Constitution by which our social and political suprem acy is gravely threatened. “9 —We believe that the conjunction of race riots and differences all over the Nation with Italians, Greeks and Japan ese, as well as with the negroes, gives a positive assurance that the day is not far distant when the Nation will be forced to modify her 'constitutional qualifications for citizenship, and that for these reasons the agitation for-the repeal of the “War Amendments” to the Federal Constitution are opportune, and the accomplishment of their repeal is eminently practical. For these reasons we are proud that our splendid little city has the honor of producing a Senatorial candidate whose platform embodies such momentous issues and whose election gives promise of such far-reaching and beneficial re sults.

Meek died while seated on the front porch of the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. John Osoinach, whose family he had been visiting for the past few weeks. The death of Dr. Meek was quite sudden, for while he had been ill he was convalescing and there was every indication of the early return of his normal health. Death was due to heart failure. Dr. Meek was a native of Alabama, but for the past fifty years had been a resident of Mississippi. He was a vet eran of the Mexican war, a life-long Mason, and the funeral, which will take place this afternoon at Cedar Grove Cemetery, in the Osoinach family tomb will be conducted with Masonic honors. Dr. Meek, for many years, at one time a practicing physician, is survived by his widow, bom May Williamson and one son, George W. Meek, of Belzoni, Miss,, and five daughters: Mrs. Mabry, of Shreveport, La.; Mrs. John Osoinach, of Bay St. Louis, Miss.; Mrs. H. E. Bates, of Kokomo, Ind.; Mrs. Lillian Raynaud and Miss Pearl Meek of New Orleans. Dr. Meek was a man of generous im pulses. The stranger, even though a beggar, never failed to find food and shelter if he sought it at his hands, and he was at home by the bedside of the sick and delighted in all kinds and neighborly offices. He had borne ad versity bravely and enjoyed prosperity quietly. He had filled the various rela tions of life, as son, husband, father, brother, friend, and filled them well. Who can do more? But he is gone! Another name is stricken from the ever lessening roll of our old residents, and a widow nearing the sunset of life, and a homo, are left to attest how sadly they will miss him. It must be so; these tender human ties cannot be severed without a pang. Yet in such a death there is really no cause for grief. His life work was done, and well done. He had passed his golden wedding day and wearied with life’s duties and cares, weary of suffering and waiting, he lay down to rest. “Tired! ah, yes! so tired dear, I shall soundly sleep tonight, With never a dream and never a fear, To wake in the morning light.” He was a man who united sound sense with strong convictions. Such a long and useful life lends a moral atmosphere and inspires much that is just and good to those who have lived around him. How much this community owes him and such as he, it is impossible to esti mate, though some of the more direct channels, to hold him up in these degen erate days, in his various characters of husband and father, of neighbor and friend, to speak of the sons and daugh ters he has reared to perpetuate his name and emulate his virtues.

Suffice it to say, he lived nobly and died peacefully at the advanced age of 88 years. The stern Reaper found him, “as a shock of com, fully ripe for the harvest.” Not for him be our tears! rather let us crown his grave with garlands; few of us will live as long or as well, and fewer yet will the Anglo of Death greet with such a loving touch. MRS. ANTHONY OSOINACH. Mrs. Anthony Osoinach died at Gulf port Thursday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock, after a long illness. She was a native of Bay St Louis, aged 73 years. Mrs. Osoinach was the mother of oqr townsman, Mr. John Osoinach, who, with his brother, Mr. A. J. Osoinach, and sisters, Misses Zelida and Belle Osoinach, of Gulfport, was present at the time of death. The remains were conveyed to Bay St. Louis, the home she had loved best for so many years, yesterday morning and, from the Catholic church, deposited in the Osoinach family tomb at Cedar Rest Cemetery, in the presence of a large concourse of sorrowing friends and acquaintances. Mrs. Osoinach was an every - day Christian. The beautifying influences of a pure religion were spread over a life and character as spotless and charm ing as was ever possessed by any of the noble women who have lived and died during the ages that are gone. As such a life was a blessing and benefaction to all within the sphere of its influence, so is the death of such a one a public mis fortune, as well as an irreparable loss to the home circle made desolate by her departure. It is difficult to pay a fitting tribute to the memory of so noble a wo man—one whose every-day life was em bellished by the most charming and lovable attributes of her sex. She seemed born to inspire the love and respect of all who were so fortunate as to be acquainted with her. No one was more willing to aid the suffering, cheer the desponding, sustain the weak and to throw over the frailties of our race the mantle of Christian charity, and when sickness and death came to her, as it comes to all, her neighbors and friends in her newly-adopted home at Gulfport vied with each other in acts of loving kindness and tender solicitude. The great destroyer had placed his sig net on her brow, and today hundreds who loved her living mourn her dead. In the presence of such a sorrow, how cold and impotent are words and how doubly deep would be the grief over the grave, did not the rainbow of Christian hope span the dark gulf between time and eternity, and such pure, bright lives inspire the belief that there is a better world beyond, where, freed from the corroding cares of earth, the good and true are re-united “after life’s fit ful fever”.
