Judge J. E. Jones.
Judge Josopli K. Jones,' who becanie
a national character by reason of his trial
of the Nightriik'rs at Union City, is a
candidate for re-election

A unique situation confronted Judge
Jones. An oath-bound secret organiza
tion formed in his district. They held
their oath to be above the law of the
land, and instead of obeying legal an
thorities, took orders from men who
were striking at the roots of society
They did murder, and they claimed
they had a right to do it. They assassi
nated a lawyer, and, in so many words,
stated to the court: "What are you
going to do about it. "
Judge Jones' election should come
from the asking for the office.
His friends in the district should
make his campaign for him.
Of course, any lawyer has a right to
run against Judge Jones, but it does
seem that his opponent should curb his
ambition to succeed him this time. To
defeat Judge Jones will be to give ap
proval to the acts of those who at
tempted to throttle the law in Obion
We do not know whether Attorney
Ge,neral Caldwell of that district is a
candidate for re-election. If he offers,
he, also, should be returned.
The Commercial Appeal knows little
of Judge Jones' personal politics, and
cares less. It makes no difference to

The Civic League.
Our last regular meeting was so in
structive wo are loth to let it pass with
out some little notice.
,,Iu. response to an invitation from our
president, Mrs. Eice A. Pierce, we were
honored with a very interesting and in
structive address by Mayor GardnexIthe
subject of sewerage being freely :hnd
fully discussed. 1
Mayor Gardner fully and forcibly con
vinced us of what a herculean task it
would be to undertake to sewer the
town at present, under financial diffi
culties. 'Tis well that our enthusiasm
should be tempered with the cool, sound
judgment of some strong man.
Mayor Gardner also, in a clear, lucid
and entertaining way, explained to us
the obligations of the board to the town,
thejr financial condition, so that every
one present could easily grasp the situ
ation, his remarks being occasionally
interspersed with good humored banter
which created a ripple of laughter dur
ing the entire afternoon, the occasion
being so pleasant that quite a good deal
of business had to be postponed until
our next meeting, the most important
being the next movement towards im
proving the appearance of our little city.
At a former meeting Mrs. Preston sug
gested an ornamental fence around the
park, while our president advocated and
suggested an arch at the main entrance
illuminated with electric lights.
Having been criticised some by those
who favored beautifying the town to the
exclusion of everything else, we are be
ginning to turn our attention from clean
ing up, disinfecting ditches and stag
nant pools, etc., to the artistic and
beautiful, yet we realize we must be
made clean before we can really be
made beautiful proper, and this brings
to our mind a little impromptu address
at a former meeting by Mrs!" A. L. Bre
vard, prefacing her remarks from a quo
tation from David Copperfield, which so
aptly applied to the question being dis
cussed. On being asked what to do with
David, was answered with the sage re
mark, "Wash him." Mrs. Brevard
making it applicable to our town said,
Wash it." She also alluded to a fact
that niany did not know, that she her
self and Mrs. Pierce were the first ladies
in Union City who had succeeded in
raising funds to furnish something orna
mental and useful for our little town.
She also spoke of the g -rous response
