NORTHERN CIRCUIT POLITICAL
In view of the fact that it is being
stated that A. S. Skelton Esq., is the
only person in the history of the pol
itics of tht Northern Judicial Cir
cuit to ask for re-election to the of
fice of Solicitor General for a third
term, the following certificate of thhh
Clerk of the Superior Court of Ogle
thorpe County is submitted to the
voters of the circuit for their infor
State of Georgia, Oglethorpe Coun
ty—Office of the Clerk of the Su
I. J. B. Stokeley, Clerk of the
Superior Court in and for said
county of Oglethorpe, state of
Georgia, do hereby ctrtify that
the Criminal Docket and the Min
utes of this court show that Hon,
Wm. M. Howard began his service
as Solicitor General in said Court
at the Tegular April term, 1885
and served continuously until, but
not including the April term, 1897,
of said court, being 12 years con
tinuous servine as Solicitor Gener
al of the Northern Circuit.
Witness my official signature
and the seal of said Court hereto
affixed, this 17th day of July, 1924
Seal. J. B. Stokeley,
Clerk Sup. Court
It will he seen fiom the foregoing
Court records that A. S. Skelton, the
present Solicitor General of the
Northern Circuit is not the first to
offer for re-election to this office for
a third term as has been stated but
that his candidacy finds precedent in
the election of Mr. Howard for three
successive terms of four years each.
In fact, Mr. Skelton’s eight years
experience better qualifies him for
the office than if! be had not had the
It makes no difference from what
particular county a candidate comes
so long as he is rendering reasona
ble service; it is not being urged
that Mr. Skelton has not made a fair
and faithful officer.
The good old county of Franklin
has in lftcent years been signally
honored bv Wiving its native son,
the beloved Hon. Samuel J. Tribble,
who passed away a few years ago,
serve as Solicitor Genera! of the
circuit to which Franklin belonged,
and later for four consecutive terms
But be that as it may, the ptople
are more interested in the selection
of officials who have experitnea gain
ed from service than in the gratifica
tion of personal political ambitions.
Experience in business counts;
this is true in tht discharge of the
duties of public office.
