Mr. Jas H. Neville was too uuwell
to til his appuiutmeut at tt'ayues-
boro last Monday, a nd that Judge
Whiuker, iu behalf ot Mr. Neville,
made a telliug stKcch, aud in it
came square out tor the nominee,
and stated that be would give him
hid Leai ty support.
In the course of his remarks
Judge Whitakersaid that when he
apiieared betore the people t
Wayne before, be did so si a can
didate for district attorney, but
that now he appeared ia behalf of
one of his opiMiuentH, the nominee
of the convention for district attor
ney, Jas. II. Neville. He said
that as to the question whether the
eonveutiort was fair or otherwise he
had nothiuR to say that was for
the people to decide but that he
'eut iuto the con vrtition, agreed
to abide by its action, uud that
now he intended to do so. S ml Le
had received petitious from each
end of tho district asking hitn to
rnu against the nominee, but that
he uow wanted it understood i
that he would do nothing of
tho kind, and that bo iuteudcd to
earnestly woik for the nuccess ol
Mr. Neville. That bo wanted to
do right, that he did not want to
do wrong, and that he want
ed his friends to keep him
right. Was einburr. ssed by the
appeals of his fricud, but this was
a question not eflectiug any per
sonal wroug, but it eflocted the
people, that he would do nothing
to divide the people of the State or
district, and that he wanted his
friends to give Mr. Neville a hearty
support. lie said that Mr. Neville
would make an acceptable officer,
that he had becu an honorable op
ponent, uim! he could and would
give hi in his cheerful support.
The speech, so wo are imforined,
was well delivered and took well
with the people, and no doubt will
bo tho means of giving Mr. Neville
additional strength in Wayne
county. As we said in our other
article, wo did not believe Judge
Whitaker would run as tin indepen
dent cundidate, that wo had too
much confidence in bis fealty to
the Democratic party to believe he
would nttt nipt to-divide the people
upon this iajstic, and we are more
lhau glud that he has given us on
opportunity to set nun In n true
light before tho people of the
Seventh district. There is now no
probability of an independent can
didate entering tho race, and the
election of Mr. iNevillo is assumed
beyond the shadow of ti doubt.
A rumor hns circulated along the const
that JudRC Whitaker ha becu petitioned
(rotu this and other parts of the district
to become nu independent cundidttle for
district attorney. Tlio Judge vent iuto
the Democratic nominating convention
end wns deft atod, mid is thereby pledged
to do all ho can to Bcenre the election of
Mr. Neville. It U in order for him, now
that the charges hsu'iotc Iibvo become
so loud and frequent, to say something
upon the Buljej.-t. llandabort Adrtrtltr.
Since there has beeu so much
talk about the probability ot Judge
Whitaker becoming an indepen
dent enndidato (and a good deal of
this talk was caused by paragraphs
published in one of tho Meridian
papers),, we think Ire should, iu
justice to himself ami friends, pub
lish acaid denying the rumor, if
iudeed he does not intend to run
as an independent.
Judgo Whitaker, us did the other
nspirauts, went into the nomina
ting convention, aud therefore
pledged himself to abide its de
cision, and we have too much con-
ttdonce in him us an honorable gen
tleman, and as a good Democrat,
to believe lie could bo induced to
allow his uaine used as an opponent
to the regular uominee ot the con
Wo think the reply of Mr. M. M.
ran's to Judge Morris' letter
which was published iu our issue
of last week, fully eiploded the
theory ot Judge Wbitaker's pos
siblo nomination before the con.
volition, and Bhowed conclusively
that he was not nominated, and
could uot have beeu eveu If the
majority rule had been adopted in
stead of a vote of thirteen, and
therd is nothing to be gained by
agitating tbo subject farther.
No one uas had the temerity to
charge that the nominating con
vention was conducted -unfairly,
that any fraud wps used, and as a
consequence every man who went
before it is inMuty. bonud to stand
square up t tho nominee, We, in
