We know nothing in the wide

latter. Let ’er go, Gallagher!—

The Congressional Race.
The congressional race in the
first district promises to aff >rd
three aspirants for the honor.
There will be, it rumors are to
be credited, one from Oktibbe
ha and one from Lee, to contest
in a triangular race with the gen.
tie man from Corinth, E.S Cand
ler. “Little Zeke,” in the last
several races, has shown himself
strongly entrenched in the es
teem and confidence of his con
stituency. and the race appears
to all at this time,as being equiv
ocal as to where the aspirants
will find grounds upon which to
urge their candidacy.—Aberdeen
Within the last few days we
have heard that it was probable
that our townsman and fellow
citizen, Hon. W. W. Magruder,
would enter the field, but of ibis
we are not advised. We will say,
however, we believe advisedly,
that should he enter that he
would carry his coun:y by a large
majority. He is well equipped
for the honorable positiou and
very popular with the people of
the couuty. Mr. Candler,in the
columns of this paper in times
gone by, knows that we have
said that “Little Zeke”has made
us one of the best congressmen
that this district has ever had.
We could not say otherwise were
we disposed to do so, lor the
people know for themselves.

the most forceful charges that
ever eminated from a judge upon
the bench, ll the laws of the
stale are not executed within the
county of Oktibbeha, it is no
fault of the presiding Judge, for
lie does not omit anything that
of duty as judge. We are almost
pursuaded that it is me duty of
everybody to attend the opening
of circuit court; the law compelis
all officials to do so ana* failure
so to do, there is a penally affix

would attend, it would be better
understood why tlie laws of the
land are not enforced in the man

they should be. Public senti

strated; when public sentiment
is behind the officers tney dis
charge their duties much better
and to a greater satisfaction lo
themselves it appears.
