Put in Race by Friends.
TIFTON, Ga.—At a mass meeting
of the people of Tift county held in
the auditorium of the Tift county
court house at the noon recess of
Tift superior court Wednesday of
last week, Hon. Raleigh Eve, presid
ing judge of the Tifton judicial cir
cuit, was formally put in nomination
as a candidate for the Democratic
nomination for Congress from the
Second congressional district to suc
ceed Hon. Frank Park. The auditor
ium was packed and enthusiasm
marked the reception of five or six
speeches preceding the formal nomi
nation. The nomination was unani
A committee of five was named to
notify Judge Eve of the action tak
en and these later escorted him into
the court room, where he was re
ceived with another outburst of ap
plause. Judge Eve thanked the meet
ing for the honor of the nomination
and said it would be his pleasure to
seek the Democratic nomination for
Congress from the Second district
should the people of the district
desire that he become a candidate.
Judge Eve has been a citizen of
Tifton since his early youth. Here
he studied law, was admitted to the
bar and from here volunteered for
service in the Spanish-American war.
He has served as judge of the Tif
ton judicial circuit since this circuit
was founded with an ability that
has attracted more than state-wide
attention. His charges to the grand
juries of his circuit have been mark
ed by a breadth of thought and
grasp of public questions that mark
him as .most desirable congression
al timber. An active organization to
present his claims to the people of
the district will be formed at once.
