THE GAZETTE this week contains the announcement of Mr. Lucion H. Henry as a candidate for the office of representative in the State legislature from Union Parish. Mr. Henry is a young, energetic, brainy, well-educated man, and thoroughly qualified to fill the position. He is a graduate of the Peabody Normal School of Nashville, Tenn., and has spent six years in active teaching and principally devoted two years more to the cause of education. Mr. Henry says that his chief reason or desire to represent the people is to have some laws affecting our educational system amended: He wishes to secure for the people a more systematic school system and a more equal distribution of the school funds. Mr. Henry is one among the best informed young men in the parish. He is patriotic, and has the interests of his State and its laws at heart for the people’s sake. We can, with confidence in his good service if elected, most heartily commend Mr. Henry to the consideration of the voters of Union Parish.

Hon. Edward Everett.

In this issue of THE GAZETTE will be found the announcement of Hon. Edward Everett as a candidate for re-election to the office of clerk of the fourth district court of Union Parish, La.

Mr. Everett is thoroughly capable and obliging as his past service in that office has proven. he is well informed on all matters pertaining to any duty of the office, is expeditious in the discharge of those duties, and we do not know of a man in the parish any  better, if as well, fitted for the position to which he aspires.

Mr. Everett was born and reared in Union Parish and he, as well as the large family to which he belongs, has for many years been identified with the people throughout the parish. His affability evidences the fact that he is a perfect gentlemen. He is so well and favorably known to the people in Union Parish that all we could say in his behalf would make his abilities no more widely known than now. Mr. Everett’s is enterprising, patriotic and a well rounded citizen. He is a man in whom the people can safely trust for a faithful and honest discharge of all duties attached to the office. With all candor we commend Mr. Everett to the people for re-election.


Hon. James M. Smith

We learned after last weeks issue of our paper that Hon. James M. Smith, of Union, the present popular and able register of the land office at Baton Rough, was a candidate for State Treasurer. We have know Mr. Smith from boyhood and gladly testify to the fact that there is not a better and purer man in the State and if elected to the office he seeks, the finances of Louisiana could not be place in more efficient hands. It will be remembered that four years ago he was elected Senator from this district and after serving a short time was appointed by Gov. Heard Register of the Land office, which respectable position he now holds and in which he has rendered the most intelligent and satisfactory service. After serving about twenty four years as clerk of the court of Union Parish, he voluntarily retired and was elected to the senate. We know no man in the State who would make a more honest and capable Treasurer and is more deserving of the sutfrage of the people, than Hon. J. M. Smith, of Union. __ Morehouse Clarion

Contrary to the expectations and calculations of some of the Steidly and Steele supporters Mr. Smith has strength outside of Union Parish.

We announce the name of Hon. Charles K. Lewis of Lincoln as a candidate for  reelection to the office of State senator to represent the 25th senatorial district of Louisiana. Mr. Lewis has served in the senate with fidelity, is moral, well equipped and an ambitious gentleman. His record is with the people and THE GAZETTE can say little that would make him better known to the people whom he has served. he is a man of executive business ability and one who will do his best to represent the interest of the state honestly and conscientiously. Mr. Lewis is a representative young man and one who having already had experience will profit by it to the people’s advantage. If given the suffrage of the people of the 25th Senatorial district, we feel sure Mr. Lewis will not fall short of his previous record. He is well informed and we need well informed and honest men in the senate. We believe Mr. Lewis will prove a strong candidate and not undeservedly so.

Dentistry. I will be in Farmerville on Thursday, October 1st, prepared to do all kinds of dental work. If you need anything in my line, call on me while here.  J. M. THURMON, Dental Surgeon.

Mr. R. A. Gibson announces in this issue his candidacy for the office of justice of the peace of ward five of Union Parish. Mr. Gibson thinks that the duty of a justice of the peace is to get neighbors to make friends rather than to litigate over their rights and to compromise their differences out of court and he offers his record to the people of his ward as evidence that he is preeminently a justice of the peace. May his good mission go on until the millennium dawns; until law ceases and justice reigns. Mr. Gibson is and will make a good justice of the peace.
