THE NEWNAN NEWS. VOL. VI. NEWNAN, GA., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 2. 1906. NO. 43 Trade With the Hustling Merchants Who Advertise in the Newnan News, About Dr. Nunnally’s Candidacy. Editor Nows:—Thanking you for an offer of space in your col umns, I ask that you give the fol lowing to your readers: TO THE EDITORS IX ItKORlilA: The press is a power with which we have to reckon in all political I neighbor movements, and be it said to the honor of the men who “push the quill and fill the stick,” it has proved to be the guardian of per sonal rights and the preserver of human liberties. 1 submit herewith an announce ment of my candidacy for the office of Governor of the State of Geor gia, and also a declaration of prin ciples upon which 1 stand. If they commend themselves to your in telligence and to the approval of your conscience, 1 would be glad to have your editorial support. If however, you should conscienti ously differ from me, while I shall regret it, yet I cannot expect you to stultify yourself, neither would 1 ask you to use your columns in the advocacy of principles and measures that you, for satisfactory reasons, condemn. Still it would rejoice me to know that the press of the State was with me in this honest effort for a clean government. TO MV BRETHREN: You may say, the announce ment of my candidacy was a sur prise to you, and perhaps to some it is the occasion of grief and fear. Grief, that the high calling of the ministry should be compromised by contact with political move ments. In reply 1 would say, remem tier that one of the noblest ministers of God in the olden time, and whose illustrious life and ser vices have challenged the admira tion and emulation of all engaged in thepame work, went forth “with a trowel in one hand and a sword in the other.” Entering the ministry does not destroy the impulses of ptriotism, nor deny to any one the rights of citizenship nor relieve him of the obligations to maintain good gov ernment. He is still a man, with Mrs. Mike Powell’s Delight* ful Reception. which 1 cheerfully grant to you, viz.: honesty of purpose, sincerity of motive and intentions of truth fulness, there can be no breach be- One of the most elaborate and tween us.

I hope, however, that the declaration of principles for which 1 stand may meet your conscientious approval. TO THE l’EOPl.E OE OEORU1A: My appearance in the field was to you sudden, and it may appear unaccountable. Hut the cause of I my coming out is not as some have I intimated, in the interest of any candidate who was previously in the race. My sense of honor for bids any such deal. 1 should lose my self-respect and justly bring upon my head the condemnation of all right minded citizens, if I should allow myself to be made the tool in playing such a political trick. Not one of the candidates have I spoken to since the cam paign opened;indeed I have seen only two of them, and then only to pass the usual salutation of gentletnen, without a word of con versation on any subject. Neither has there passed between us a single line of correspondence, nor has any friend of any of them mentioned the subject to me in any manner whatever. The history of my candidacy is simply this: For more than twenty five years I have stood right where J stand today on these questions, especially those which have the elements of moral reform in them. Publicly and privately, before re ligious conventions and legislative assemblies, with tongue and pen, I have persistently and consistently pressed them as best I could. I rejoiced when success to any ex- umque and splendid entertain ment—“The Sweet Family.” Mrs. Alonzo Norris, as “the lone relic” of the late Jcdekinh Sweet, played her part, “Ma Sweet,” in an inimitable manner. Mrs. Sanders Gibson, as Ar’minty Ann Sweet, with her “many win ning ways,” rendered a pathetic vocal solo. Miss Hessie Powell, as Betsy Belindy Sweet, delivered an able address advocating woman’s rights. Miss Annie Powel, as Caroline Cordelia Sweet, with her usual fine stage bearing, was charming as a reader. “After the Ball,” an instrumental solo, was brilliantly executed by Miss Sadie May Powel, as Dorothy Delilah Sweet. Miss Virginia Freeman, as Elizabeth Eliza Sweet, “by far the most attractive,” gave as a recitation “Marco BozZaris.” The woes of Frances Fedory Sweet, as a forlorn maiden “disappointed in love,” were pathetically depicted by Miss Lizzie Arnold. Mrs. El len Goolsby, as Glorianna Gada bout Sweet, “who did nothing but giggle,” gave “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” in a most laughable man ner. After the performance the audi ence was invited to remain, and mingled with the members of the caste while a delightful luncheon was served Col. W. S.

But my Christian fellowship is not based upon the relations a brother liears to the governor of the State The above totals show that Col. Hubbard ran 15K votes ahead of Mr. Willcoxon, his nearest op ponent, and 224 votes ahead of Mr. Wilkinson. The returns show that 1,256 votes were cast in the primary. This was an extremely light vote; due in a large measure, no doubt, to the very inclement weather that prevailed last Satur day. The vote cast falls several hundred short of being half as large as the number of registered voters. In Honor of Mrs. Michael Powell.

Tliey don’t think it can be “beat.” It is tlie platform on which every candi date should stand, frem city alderman to president of tlie United Stutes. We are anxious that Bro. Nunuully may become governor for several reasons. First, lie is a tom eranoo man. aud we know that lie wil go rigiit to work to break up tlie jug traflie that is doing our country so much injury, causing so many liomeloss widows and orphans. Another reason is, lie is a humble fol lower of tlie meek and lowly Christ. His ambition is to do something that will advance ttie cause of tlie one whom ids soul delights to honor; and we need just such men as that in office. People may say it is not a good idea to mix religion uud politics, hut our opinion is tlie more religion the better the politics. Hugh G.
