Aswell for Governor.
It is now an open secret that
Hon. J, B. Aswell, of Natchito
caes, will soon be an announced
candidate for Governor, at the
next election. His friends are
enthusiastic in his behalf,and pre
dict that he will be elected. With
out committing ourselves to his
support, we must say that all the
qualities that go to make a splen
did public official, He is capable,
he is public spirited. he is honest
and patriotic. What more do you
want in a public official? The fact
that he would be a candidate has
been evident for some weeks, for
all the sinecure office holders re
presenting the Ring Politicians
have been chirping in unision
against him for about that time.
They evidently got the word, and
have been repeating the little_
versesentout from the New Or
leans gang, to the effect that "As
well is the candidate of the public
school clique," that he wants to
"ride into power on the public
school hobby horse" and all such
nonsense. The gang of sinecure
office holders, has not the brains
to originate an idea,but they sing
the song sent out to them by the
bosses, and that is all they do for
the money they draw out of the
public treasury.
Mr. Aswell pushed the Public
Schools with all the power he
could,while State superintendent
as it was his duty to do, and if he
is elected Governor, he will exert
the same energy and ability in he
half of the State. He will make a
splendid governor, but there are
others,andconsidering the humil
iating mistake we made at the last
election we must be careful in se
lecting the man next time. Trot
out your men, the first entry is a
good one, but we want the pick
of the field this time,-Mansfield
