Dairy Asio’n, Wellborn Pays Tribute to Alexander. Editor Times: On this good Sabbath day I find myself reading over again an ad dress delivered three years ago be fore the State Bar Association en titled;-—“The Majesty of the Law” by Hon. C. H. Alexander. It is a great message upon a great theme, and it ought to be an uplift to any one who reads it. The leading thought is: That all progress and civilization, which is best exempli fied by the Auglo*HaxQß, is hut the enthronement of law In the hearts of the people. The recent sudden death of the man who gave utterance to this in spiring address, impels me to pay an humble tribute to his life, Es pecially the people of Starkville have reason to feel a loss in the passing of this good man, for in him we had a warm friend; in a way, he was onr representative at the State Capitol, and our people often sought his wise counsel. While he lived here many years ago, vet he still had a warm spot in his big heart for the people of this community, and well do I re member the last time I saw him in Jackson, he interestingly related the beginning of his career in Stark ville, and made friendly inquiry about many people of his acquaint ance in the comity, During our sessions ot the Legislature, the representatives of this county al ways had in him a friend whose i ready and able services could be hud without money and without | price. Asa brilliant and astute lawyer he had few equals, but standing out far and beyond all, was the man. He was pure in speech, eleau and temperate in his life, truthful in statement, energetic and strictly honest in business. On account of his high business integrity, it was said of him, that he probably han dled more large estates and was en trusted with more trust-funds, than any man in the state. He was a positive and devout Christian ot the old school, and he believed in the healing power of righteousness in the uplift of the people. He was found in the lead in all movements for the good of his city or state, and the forces for law and order, morals and good government, recognized in him a champion in whom they could im plicitly trust. He drafted the pro hibition law upon our statutes said to be one of the most skillfully written of any law ot the kind, m the country; and he was called in counsel whenever laws were to be made effecting the moral status of the common wealth. He unsuccessfully sought the highest political office in the gift of the state, and it is proper to say that the times are sadly out of joint when such men can be displaced by the striped demogogues who pa rade our political arena. The life of Charlton H. Alexan der is worthy to go down in our states history as a sun-kissed moun tain peak upon our horizon that will be a beacon to lead men on toward the table lands of high en deavor. John’ 11. Wellborn. Married. On Sunday morning at 1.0 o’clock at the home of the bride’s mother, Mrs. Gertrude McGee, Mr. W. H. Harrison of West Point was united in marriage to Miss Jessie McGee of this city. Mr- Harrison is a trusted employee of the Cumber land Telephone Cos , of West Point, and the bride was one of Starkville’s prettiest and most popular young girljj. Soon after the ceremony the young couple left for West JPoiut where they will reside, A Working Statesman. Every man has some main char acteristic, some distinguished qual ity or trait that becomes a part of him and all men think of in con nection with him when he is thought of. With some men this main characteristic is the gift of gab j with others hard work, It is the good and \vell deserved fortune oi Mr. Candler in his twelve years service in Congress to have made his name a synonym for industry in the performance of his official duties. Faithful and en ergetic he has eyer been. No ene my can point to a duty neglected, an opportunity to serve his people lost. His service to his constituents has been devoted, not in the way of self serving declarations, or in that easiest of all ways—lip service, but in actual work that brought mate rial results. The first congressional district of Mississippi has fared well during Mr. Candler’s terms- of office. It has had the full shape in the gov ernment of the nation that it was entitled to, and has received every bit of the governmental benefits that is its due. It will be hard for his opponent to show one 1 instance in which he or any other man could have done more for his district than Mf. Candler. There is no necessity nor any de sire to excuse Mr. Candler for not making more speeches in Congress than he has. On the contrary his substitution of work for talk is ad duced as evidence of his good sense and his fitness for the place. We all know what sort of people choose their lawyers by their voices and verbosity, and measure men by the quantity of their talk and not the merit and result of their actions. And talk and work and their value and effectiveness stand in the same relation in Congress that they do at the bar and in every day life. In fact work stands even relatively higher there from the fact so many are in that assembly with the gift of tongue and language. Mr. Candler has been eminently successful as a congressman. .No just criticism can be urged against his service in Washington.—Macon Beacon.
