DR. WATKINS' INTRODUCTION
OF HON. HILLRIE M. QUIN.
The Able President of Millsaps College Pays the Nçxt
Governor of Mississippi a Deserved Tribute.
The rally of the friends and support-1
of Hon. Hillrie M. Quin, speaker of 1
of
era
the house of representatives and prom- j
inent candidate for Governor, at the
court house in Jackson on Thursday
night of last week, was a distinct suc
cess, the court room being crowded to
the doors and overflowing with an en
thusiastic audience that gave an ova
tion to the Jackson man who is in the
race for gubernatorial honors at the
hands of the voters, with bright pros
pects to win.
Many ladies were in the audience,
and took a deep interest in the events
of the evening.
W. Calvin Wells presided as master
of ceremonies, introducing candidates
for county and district offices, in his
usual able and complimentary manner.
W. A. Montgomery, secretary of the
Quin campaign committee, also was on
hand. He worked hard to arrange the
big event and much of the success of
the evening is due to his aggressive ef
forts.
QUIN INTRODUCED.
After the candidates for county and
district offices had spoken the candidate
for governor was introduced by Dr. A.
F. Watkins, president of Millsaps Col
lege, who paid a glowing tribute to the
integrity, fearlessness and patriotism
of Mr. Quin. When Mr. Quin arose in
response to the very flattering intro
duction he was greeted with great ap
plause, that was in the nature of an
oyation, the cheering continuing for
several minutes.
DR. WATKINS' INTRODUCTION.
Mr. Chairman and Fellow-Citizens—
We are assembled here in the exercise
of one of the important and cherished
functions of a free and untrammelled
citizenship. We are, politically speak
ing, each man under his own vine and
fig tree, confident in the assurance that
no one dare molest oç, make us afraid.
We have not met to receive with
servile adulation some heralded mes
senger from our King beyond the sea,
a messenger arrayed in all the trap
pings of courtly show and circum
stance, and to hear from his lips the
name and title of him, whom imperial
condescension has appointed to be a
ruler over us. We are here to give ut
terance to our own thoughts, to ex
press eur own convictions, to declare
our own preferences.
This is the heritage of our fathers'
blood, the glorious fruitage of their
heroic valor. The shades of Washing
ton and Jefferson look upon us with
complacency; for they see the travail
of their souls and are satisfied. They
see a strong and happy people dwell
ing in peace in the broad lap of a
mighty continent, secure in their un
paralleled power from foreign perils
and safe in their unity of spirit from
civil strife. Their cities sit like queens
upon the banks of their majestic riv
ers; their waving fields make glad their I
smiling valleys; their countless flocks J
cover their widely extended plains; the
busy hum of their factories tell of the
successes of prosperous industry; their
temples of worship lift stainless spires
toward heaven; their institutions of
learning crown the hill tops; their pal
aces of justice adorn their thorough
fares; and liberty and peace and plenty
shine through the golden cycles of
their happy years.
We represent the crowning, the tri
umphant, experiment of popular gov
ernment, the vindication of the ability
of the common people to achieve and
maintain their civil, practical and re
ligious liberty, and to the great repub
lic of the west looks for 'sympathy,
for guidance and for support, every op
pressed people on the face of the globe.
But glorious privileges, that thrill
the heart with exultation and fill the
!
mouth with singing, carry with them
responsibilities that temper the wild ex
ultation of the heart and change the
paean of victory into a song of prayer.
Shall not wo, who govern ourselves,
show to the world that we can govern
well? Shall not we teach the world
how free men live? Shall not crime be
dnitten in its tracks? Shall not vice
be throttled in its lair? Shall not hid
eous graft be driven from the land?
Shall not our beauteous cities be as
clean in their morals as Jffleir spotless
streets are clean? Shall not our rulers
be men of probity, and our citizens
like those of whom the Psalmist sings:
Men, "in whose eyes a vile person is
condemned, but who honore th them
that fear the Lord.
Gentlemen, the problem that Ameri
ca must work out for the world is the
problem of self-government, which
means not the self shall govern itself.
Gentlemen, the world never saw the
successful experiment of popular self
government until they saw it under the
benign influences of a Christian ci vi li
the essential principles of
are those that constitute the
teachings of the prophet of Naxareth,
the Sen of God, the Savior of the
World. Its conception is that of a
chief magistrate who is but the chief
minister to his people; the ruler who is
the servant of alt; the leader who is
the brother t» his people -the first
prierai tntepares;

its
not sub-'

if.
Gigantic in stature, deep of chest,
^road shoulder. They thought so; for
theirs was the conflict of physical
forces, and they were tyut the children
of the war-club. Strong in their cun
ning and their craftiness? Their chil
dren thought so; for they had learned
that brain was greater than brawn,
and the cunning man was the strong
man^s master. But our leader must be
stroqg in the forces of spiritual life, in
integrity of character, in righteous
ness and in faith in God and man.
But, gentlemen, our leaders can be
strong only as we are strong, right
eous only as we are righteous, pure only
as we are pure. Of what avail that a
sordid people overthrow a current ring,
only to install in its stead one not less
corrupt! Is it not but a step in a vic
ious circle, a link in a chain of sordid
selfishness, that knows no end?
Let pur governor be a strong man
physically, if you will; for there is a
glory in physical strength and beauty;
but better physical weakness than
greatness that is simply a matter of
beef and brawn.
Let our governor be wise and crafty;
many are the problems that demand
skill and cunning, but better the • sim
plicity of heart that loves only right
eousness and justice than a craftiness
that serves no worthier purpose than
to escape the penalties of outraged law
and go unwhipped of justice.
We are gathered here to bear wit
ness to the sterling worth of one who
asks at our hands the highest honor in
the gift of the people of a Common
wealth.
Is he a stranger? No, he is the pro
duct of our soil, the son of the sturdy
and virtuous yeomanry of our own
State.
Is he honest? Ask those who have
searched with watchful interest the rec
ord of his public and private career.
Is he capable? Look for your an
swer upon the signal wisdom and suc
cess with which he has discharged the
duties of personal and official life.
Is he friendly and gracious? Ask the
thousands in this community and oth
ers in this commonwealth, who ac
knowledge the charms of his genial
personality, and account his friendship
one of life's richest blessings.
Are good judgment, manly dignity and
self-control and unchallenged Christian
integrity elements that should mark
the character of the chief magistrate
of a great State?
Gentlemen, you will find them in con
spicuous lustre in the Honorable Hillrie
M. Quin, of Hinds county, the honora
ble speaker the house of représenta»
tives of the State of Mississippi.
I cise and eloquent manner, and the large
J audience evidenced their appreciation
At the conclusion of Dr. Watkins'
splendid introduction, which received
prolonged applause at the hands of the
great crowd, Mr. Quin proceeded to de
liver one of the best speeches ever lis
tened to by a Jackson audience. His
! policies were reviewed in an able, con
by frequent interruptions of enthusi
astic applause. The slogan "Quin Will
Win" is in evidence throughout the
State, and the doubting ones had just
as well take due notice of this fact?

So many people troubled with indi
