D. F. May, candidate for County
clerk, fails to smile upon us as
broadly as of yore, since our gentle
mention of his doings in lust week's
issue. Just hold yourself easy, broth

pleased to feel such gentle taps.

The Courier in a seeming spirit of
deliberate malice prints a gross lie
week after week like an advertise

of being the author of a certain res

month will have to elect a I'nitcd
States senator to succeed Hon. J. N.
Dolphu The senate is now republi

reason to cause republicans to be
staunch to their, ticket, thereby in
suring a solid republican delegation
from this county. ' , .,
The republican nominees for the
legislature are men of Ability, ac

Hranr Cochran met last night
and nominated himself for Mayor
on the Anti Chinese Labor Ucfornt

may be of itself, it has not such a,
