The opening sddrseees were being
made this afternoon. District Attor
ney Hall conducting the prosecution
fh * second Liberty Loan campaign
lagged for a good while in this city
for lack o f organised and system atic
effort to make it hum. It is lagging
no longer, as the big bunch o f sub
scriptions received by each o f oar
tanks last night follow ing the m eet-'
ing arranged by the Honor Guard
girls am ply testifies.
The idea o f this meeting had ift
inception with the girls o f the guard,
and all the arrangements made fo r it,
the selection o f the speakers, the
printing o f the hills and the sscuriag
o f the band were theirs.
About eight o’clock last night tbs
band played at the F irst National
Bank corner and a representative as
semblage speedily gathered in which
the Indies and girls were very mufh
in evidence. —
The speakers arrived in the ca n o f
L. H. Hasard and M. O. Hawkins and
the meeting was called to order by
Leo. J. Cary, who introduced Mayor
E. E. Johnson as the first speaker. He
made a patriotic address and was
followed in turn by Superintendent J.
C. Almack, o f our city schools, and
Judge John S. Coke, o f the Circuit
court, who was introduced n s-s m
for over forty years.
County Judge Watson, who demurred
when he was presented as a man who
had not been here quite as long as
Judge Coke and who had lots s f
friends among the sternqr sex, bet
whose standing among tha ladies the
chairman could "not testify to— this in
allusion to his protracted bachelor
hood. The Judge did not allude to th"
latter matter but rather emphasised
Me force whan he insisted that instead
o f being a. later comer in Ooos county
than Judge Coke he had lived hose
longer. The fa ct is he was born hem>.
Other speakers were W alter Hamil
ton, a soldier in uniform, M. O. Haw-
U n . president o f the Farmers M d
Merchants Bank, J. E. Norton, presi
dent o f the Ooquflje Commercial Club,
Mrs. William Csndlin and Mias Ads
Nswell, president o f the Girls’ Honor
G u ard^ Every speaker expressed the
most patriotic sentiments and waa
statement that the Honor Guard had
purchased a. $100 Liberty bond with
the fapds in their treasury brought
an especial round o f recognition.
