MR. E. N. WILLIAMS
One of Franklin County's staunch
jest Democrats, who is always alert to
the best interest of his people and his
party. He is the father of the bill
dividing Franklin County into dis
tricts in order to insure the proper
rt pre^ntation throughout the Coun
ty. Mr. Williams began work on his
idea in 1910 and has been consistent
ly pushing it forward and winning
friends for it until in the early spring
of 1920 at the first meeting of the
Democratic Executive Committee held j
at the beginning of the campaign his !
plan was put before the Committee
and received a unanimous approval 1
thereupon he was made Chairman of
a committee to have it enacted into ,
l?w. And during the present session I
of the General Assembly he has had.j
the pleasure of seeing his pet ideal
become law. It might be said, how- |
ever that in all of hi* arguments in 1
favor of the plan only a desire to see
eVQjry Bection of the County equally
represented has been advanced. His I
Democracy is of the kind that gives
an ear to the crys of the people and |
takes heed. i
