Practically all of the candidates for offloes in Jackson county addressed a g-atherir.K of several hundred voters at "Two-e?K town," about eleven miles north of Grand Ridge this afternoon. The prin cipal speakers were W. .T. Sing!-'tarv and Dr. P. A. Willis, candidates fr the state senate, both of whom havp been makinsr an active canvass of the county, on account of which more than ordinary interest was manifested. Some time pince Dr. Willis attacked the legislative record of Mr. Sinple tary, alleging thai the lattir, -while a member of the state legislature voted for the bill to increase the pay of county commissioners, insinuating that Mr. Singletary's subsequent can didacy for a seat on the county board was due, in some measure, to the fart, that the bill became a law. Mr. Sin gletary denied votinsr for the nieuMiir--and defied Dr. Willis to prow hi statements from the paes of the offi cial journal. Argument on this point was again expected by many of thoe who attended and they were not dis appointed. The last two weeks of the canvass for votes in Jackson county will bo unusuallv lively, for candidates are out in force .Ttid will .allow no voter t escape argument as to their respective claims. ov.
