JUDGE JOHN H. MITCHELL ANNOUNCES
Judge John H. Mitchell of Pontotoc authorizes us to announce him as a candidate for Judge of the First Judicial District of Mississippi subject to the action of the Democratic Party. Judge Mitchell is well-known throughout the district as he served four years on the bench, having been appointed by Gov. Noel. In this capacity he established for himself a record for judicial acumen, fairness and courtesy to which he can point with pride. He displayed high conception of the law gained by years of practice and his rulings at all times were characterized by an earnest desire to administer even handed justice in every case. Cases appeared from his court in a large majority of cases stood the test of the Supreme Court and he was seldom reversed. Judge Mitchell is a quiet unassuming gentleman, but ready at all times to take the bits in his mouth and administer punishment wherever the law says it should be administered. He believed in a rigid enforcement of the criminal laws and stands squarely behind the officials in the discharge of their duties. Should the people of the district decide to elect Judge Mitchell he will make them a most acceptable Judge of their Circuit Court.
