Our Next Governor
Col. Thomas G. Jones of Montgomery is the nominee of the Democratic Party for Governor of Alabama. He is just in the prime of vigorous manhood and has all the qualities to make a good, just and true governor. He is a man of great force of character and he will be governor in the true sense of the word. Col. Jones is a true and tried democrat and no man according to his age, has done more labor for the triumphant success of the party than he has. He has the courage of his convictions and no personal interest can swerve him from doing what is right. Not a blemish can be found upon his personal or political record. He is the right man for the place and we heartily endorse the action of the Democratic Convention and take no little pride in nailing his name to our masthead. We believe that as sure as the ides of August roll around that Col. Jones will lead the Democratic Party to a triumphant victory. We here offer three cheers for Thomas G. Jones the Democratic Nominee for Governor of Alabama.
