Chancellor Strieker Wants to Retain
Office He Now Holds.
Chancellor V. J. Strieker, of the
fifth chancery district has announc
ed as a candidate for re-election, sub
ject to the action of the white Dem
ocratic voters at the August primary.
Chancellor Strieker is now serving
to fill the unexpired term of Chan
cellor Lamar Easterling, who resign
ed to engage in private practice in
the delta.
The fifth district is composed of
the counties of Hinds, Madison, Ya
zoo, Copiah and Lincoln, and is by
far the most important chancery
subdivision in the state. Not only
is the volume of litigation here hea
vier than in any other district, 'but
cases of the most far-reaching im
portance compose the county calen
dars, especially in the county of
Hinds, where many cases involving
state questions, testing the constitu
tionality of legislative acts, the offi
cial actions of state executives, etc.,
are brought for hearing.
Chancellor Strieker has given em
E———

inent satisfaction during the brief
period he has served on the bench.
He is a lawyer of exceptional ability,
a profound scholar, a man of calm>
judicial temperament, and members
of the bar, regardless of how their
cases may result are unanimous in
declaring that he is uniformly fair
and Impartial, and has made a con
scientious efTort to discharge his du
ties to accordance with the law and
the evidence.
Chancellor Strieker is a native of
Wilkinson county, but for the past
twenty years he has been a resident
of Jackson, and it was in this city
that he was admitted to the bar and
commenced the practice of his pro
fession. He is a man of genial, lov
able character, has never taken part
in factional, politics, and it goes with
out saying that he is going to havb
an active and formidable following
in the pending contest.

AUTO WRECKS AND
KILLS COMPRESS MAN
New Car Owner in Accident Six
Miles West of Brookhaven
Yesterday.
Lige Davis, a colored man who for
fifteen years had been general man
ager of hands and1 press room at the
Brookhaven Compress, was instantly
killed in an automobilp accident a
bout six miles west of Brookhaven
yesterday evening on the old Jack
son road about seven o’clock. Davis
was 45 years old and leaves a wife
and several children. He owned a
nice property in Brookhaven and was
well-to-do.
About three weeks ago he pur
chased a Ford and it has been sta
ted that he did not fully understand
its operation. The road he was tra
veling is one of the best in. the coun
ty and there appeared no cause whit
ever for the fatality except losing
control of the machine In some way.
It turned completely over and tie
steering wheel, crumpled to the hub
of it, caught the victim in the stom
ach pinning him down to the extent
that the imprint of his arm and
shoulder to the depth of several in
ches was plainly seen in the damp
earth on the side of the road where
he met death. His companion in the
drive was painfully hurt and was
extricated from the damaged car by
Mr. 0. W. Wooten and his young
grandson thru the supreme efforts of
both who, living near had heard the
screams of the woman and rendered
all aid possible.
Davis was an industrious negro
and was esteemed for his faithful
service and attitude toward his asso
ciates’ of both races.

HIGH TRIBUTE IS
PAID JUDGE COOK
Lady Court Stenographer Calls
On Voters to Support Him
in Race.
To the voters of the Southern Su
preme court District of Mississippi:
This is my first appearance in
print or in the political arena since
the good state of Mississippi con
ferred upon us women the right tc
vote. I have no stones to throw al
anyone but I do want to express mj
appreciation of the services of Judge
W. H. Cook, who is now on the su
preme bench and a candidate for re
election.
I have known Judge Cook in the
official capacity of police Justice ol
City of Hattiesburg. I have known
him as circuit judge of this district.
I had the pleasure of being a fellow
worker in the courts when he was
district attorney for this district. I
have, with much interest, watched
his course on the supreme bench.
Without going into details as to the
service of this most distinguished cit
izen, I desire to register my belief
that no man ever served his people
in all these capacities with more fi
delity, learning, ability and zeal than
has Judge Cook. No just criticisms
can be made against his official acts.
His personal and private life is
without the semblance of cloud or
suspicion. He lives within the bos
nm rt 9 4 a f n wi41n nT.il V. nn nn 4- V* * V» a
teachings and guidance of his
church.
Judge Cook has been supreme
judge filling an unexpired term. He
has a family and children to edu
cate. I have never heard a criticism
if his judicial life. Every expression
of him as an official has been col
ored with praise.
Why any person, faction or poli
tician should conceive the notion
that Judge Cook ought to be defeat
ed and another man given his judi
cial ermine, is beyond my ability to
comprehend. It may be th^t being
so fresh with the right of ballot that
I have a false conception of what is
right in his case. My innate and na
tural honesty and a fair sense of jus
tice prompts me to say that to dis
place him in order to make a place
for some, other, though worthy he
might be, is nothing short of a tra
vesty on justice.
In fact, it would be knocking the
brains out of common honesty and
fairness.
I believe that the womanhood of
South Mississippi will agree with me
that so good a man, under all the
circumstances, should be retained in
office. I am writing this especially
to them and calling upon them to
rally to his support.
As stated, I have been a co-official
with Judge Cook in some of his pre
vious services to the people, and
there is no element of real manhood
and honest dealing lacking in him.
I am, therefore, hopeful that the
“right will prevail and that he will be
elected. I am no politician, have no
patience or respect with factional
politics but believe in the election of
the best man for every office. May
I not expect from all the women and
a majority of the men a spontaneous
support or judge Look?
Very truly,
JENNIE F. SMITH.
Official Court Stenographer, 12th Ju
dicial District.
' The Leader is informed by H. H.
Brickell, president Yazoo Furniture
Co., that the Baseball League has
offered no money to the church; but
“did want the churches to push the
baseball game3 for a small part of
the proceeds,” and adds “our church
lon’t need money this badly and does
lot believe this is the proper way td
?et if.” The Leader interpreted an
article in the Yazoo Sentinel to mean
that the cffurch had been offered
money by the League and declined it
which it seems by the message re
ceived from Mr. Brickell, is just a
bout correct. In Brookhaven the
principle of “giving as the Lord has
prospered” or thru tithing has been
stressed until the churches flourish
as they never have before thru this
means. As Mr. Brickell suggests is
the case in Yazoo gifts are not ta
booed, however.

Alderman vyas a teacher in the Hol
mes County Agricultural High School
