A Hooiier From Indiana.
Mr. Park Daniel, County At'
torney of Rockville, Ind. and for
merly a citizen of this county is
visiting here this week looking
after his property interests. Mr.
Daniel is a large property owner
in Oktibbeha County, and while
away up in Ind. he placed his ear
to the ground and heard the rum
ble about heavy taxation in Miss
isaisppi and caught the next train
out of Rockville and come down to
sec about it. And all of his old
friends here were glad to see him,
Park Daniel came to Mississippi
from Ind twenty flvey years ago
and invested in tember lauds and
went into the saw mill business.
He was a lawyer by education and
possessing an intellect with person
ality and maguitism far above the
average he made many friends and
gained admires among all classes
as well as the masses.
Daring a political ampaign while
Daniel was absent at his old home
in Indiana, a spontaneous action
was taken by the citizens of the
county, who without his consent
or knowledge, announced him as
a uandiate to represent Eastern
Oktibbeha in the legislature, not
withstanding the fact that he was
an avowed republican and tbut his
nomuation. wnuh im-us uu elec
tion, could otny be accomplished
through a democratic primary.
And iu day tneieis strung beliet
that had tie u.ude the race he
would have been elected regardless
ut p.tzau predjudice; but on thi ß
propsmou, Mr. Dauiels positively
balked and refused to allow his
name to be placed upon tue tickets
While he is uu longer a citizen
of our county his interest here will
often call him back and his old
friends B Oktibbeha and Starkvilla
hail with delight every returning
visit-
