John Sharp Williams Declared the Nominee for United States Senator. At exactly noon on Thursday, after the State Democratic Executive Com mittee at Jackson had been in session and canvassed the returns from all the counties in the contest for the nomina tion to the United States Senate, the finding of the Committee led to the pre sentation of the following resolution of fered by Hon. J, W. George, of Yazoo, and its adoption by unanimous vote: “It appearing from the official returns submitted to this Committee that Hon. John Sharp Williams has received 948 yotes for the office of United States Sen ator, he is, therefore, hereby declared the nominee of the Democratic party of Mississippi, for the office of United States Senator for the term beginning March 4,1911, and ending March 4,1917.” In moving this resolution, Mr. George indulged in no superfluous words nor at tempted any eulogistic flights of elo quence, simply submitting the motion to the committee. The resolution was seconded by R, AY . Bailey, of Grenshaw, who stated that, as a friend of Governor Yardaman, he desired to do so, saying that the Governor recognizes the Com mittee as the supreme court for the Dem ocrats of Missisippi in this matter; that its rulings should be accepted as final, and there should be no going behind the returns, as such procedure was foreign to the views and wishes of Governor Yardaman. This statement of Mr. Bailey, simple yet expressive of the real sentiments of those assembled in the Legislative hall, found an echo everywhere, judging from he volume of applause, and the decla ration of the resolution was made unan imbus. The fight was over, the battle won, and the long strain and severe ten sion of the week dissipated and broken, the men breathed freer and could, so far as this contest was concerned, shake hands across the chasm of doubt and claims and declared that they were sat isfied. Governor Vardanian’* Eloquent Note Conceding the Nomination. As the views of Governor Yardaman, when the Committee had acted and clos ed the accounting between himself and his distinguished rival, he gave out the following statement: “The Democratic party, through its Executive Committee, has declared Mr, Williams the nominee, and I accept the arbitrament of that tribunal without a tinge of resentment or regret for any thing done or said by my friends or me during the campaign. I am for the nom inee, and hope that he will make for the people of Mississippi a great United States Senator. I have made the cam paign upon living, important and perti nent principles, and, while 1 have lost the nomination, 1 am thoroughly con vinced that the large majority of the white Democrats of this State agree with my views upon public questions and I shall continue to fight for those principles as earnestly in the future as I have contended for them in the past. “I want to thank my friends for their loyalty, their earnestness, their zeal in behalf of the principles I represent, and for my political interest. No man was ever blessed with more loyal and faith ful friends than those who favored my fortune in this contest. I want them to feel as I do,' that we have not been de feated, but that the victory has only been postponed for a season. I Lave been a candidate several times in my life and lost the fight, but never haye I felt the sting of defeat, and I am not defeat ed today. lam sure that I am stronger with the people of Mississippi today than ever before, and God being my helper, 1 hope to so live that that popularity confidence and strength with the people may grow. “The only life worth living is a life of service, and to serve Mississippi and Mississippians is my chief ambition.” Thus has been brought to a close one of the greatest and most intensely thought - absorbing political contests which can be recalled in the history of Mississippi, and no doubt is felt that the majority of the men have voted their honest convictions both as to the men and the issues which they re present. The turbulent and troubled sea ol doubt and uncertainty ia now changed to a calm, and men are breath ing easier that the strain is broken. At the head of this article will be found the official figures of the guber natorial contests. William’ 111-Natured and Spiteful Utterance. Jackson, Miss., Aug. s.—Mr. Wil liams gave out the following: “All Mississippians are brethren. I congratulate myself upon having pre served their good will and upon having won a victory, notwithstanding the 15,- 000 or 20,000 Populites who take their marching orders from Tom Watson, while they wear a Democratic uniform and bear a Democratic name. Thank God, I fought a clean fight and kept the faith; the old Democratic faith, midway between plutocracy and mobocracy. Thank God, again, that I was strong enough to preach the doctrine of mutual helpfulness, and not mutual hate, on earth.” ___________ SUPT. POWERS SETTLES DOWN FOR FULL | TERM OF OFFICE. Issues a Statement Telling of the Course He Will Pursue in Administration of the Schools of the State— Wants Teachers Who are Well Trained. Having been assured of his election for a full term of four years, Prof. J. N. Powers, the new Superintendent of Ed ucation appointed by the Governor to fill the vacancy caused by the resigna tion of Prof. H. L Whitfield, has ac tively assumed the duties of his office. In outlining his official course, Prof. Powers says: “In taking charge of the office of state superintendent, I do so realizing that this office, if the duties are well discharged, is one whose influence is great, not ohly on the present genera tion, but on the generations to come. My predecessors have done much to give the state better teachers, to widen the influence of educational forces, and to build up public sentiment for better schools. Great progress has been made and the quickening effect of that prog ress has been felt in every walk of life especially the rural sections. • “Believing that education gives to every boy and girl a better chance in the life battle, I stand for better schools; believing that the betterment of the schools depends largely on the training of the teachers for their work, I stand for better trained teachers; believing that the people of tb • state are putting forth great efforts to improve their schools, I shall endeavor to keep the people informed on educational matters, and to have teachers prepare to measure up to the desires of the people; believ ing that the position of our state among her sister states and the other communi ties of the world depends upon public sentiment for education,"on the ability of the educational forces to meet the 1 demand, and on the hearty co-operation of the teachers and the people, I shall endeavor to promote these by visiting the schools and by meeting the people of the several counties of the state as often as possible.” TWO OPINIONS BY LEADING JOURNALS On John Sharp Williams’ Bitter and 111-Natur ed Remarks Against Governor Yardaman. From The Gulfport Record: Mr. Williams may feel at liberty in the future as he has in the past to ig nore this overshadowing question, but there is one thing sure and that is that the bare majority by which he was elec ted will rise specter-like to haunt and shame him. From The Hattiesburg News: Mr. Williams’ parting shot at his op ponent and the seeming spirit of intol erance and malicious resentment which he evinces toward the thousands of loyal Democrats who formerly affiliated with the Populists, and others who were loath to concede his exclusive right for political preferment, is in bad taste, es pecially since the motion for his election was made by his distinguished opponent who had good grounds for a bitter and prolonged contest. Mr. Williams, however, is not given to harmonizing. His leadership in congress has been ob structive rather than constructive. He is a driver, not a leader. And his child ish utterances at this time are not sur prising to those who know the man. The Odd Fellows of Mississippi have accepted the offer of Hattiesburg of a lot on which to build an orphans’ home and will establish an institution of that character in the magic city. The offer by Hattiesburg includes a twenty acre lot in the heart of the city and a cash subscription of S6OOO. The order of Odd Fellows is reported to be in fine j shape all over the state. Charley Scott sunk the McLaurin “battlejship,” but went down himself in the wreckage after a gallant fight. Meanwhile, the McLaurin “torpedo boat,” with a heavy head of steam up, is “pulling for the shore,” with might and main. Will he reach the dry docks?— Brookhaven Leader. CASTORXA.
