Sinoo loot woclta irniue carrying the
I announcement that H. E. Norria
1 would not be a candidate for Solicitor
to succeed himself, inquiries from all
sections are being made as to whether .
or not Ben Holden. will be a candidate.
Mr. Holden when approached tlkli
week by the Editor stated, "I have re
ceived many expressions of confidence
and assurance Gf?&upport, tor which I
tam deeply grateful. It la my purpose
I to be a candidate for Solicitor."
li is current opinion in Franklin*.
, shared by many leading citizens alt
,Wake, that Fraklin Cdtiili^Aro faff-'
ness and justice is entitled to one of
the Judicial officers of the. Seventh
| District. There are only two coun
ties in the District and out two Judic
ial officers. Wake has T>oth Judge
'and Solicitor. By reason of her lar
' ger population Wake is ante to retain
j both, but it is the expressed belief
(that she will not be willing to resort
to her might in order to defeat that
which must appear to be rxgnt.
Mr. Holden is well known in the
District and has many warm friends
in Wake as well as FranKlin. No one
can question his ability as a lawyer,
his fairness as a practitioner and his
honesty or Integrity as a man. He is
recognized as a hard fighter in the
Court House, yet he has a heart that
is commensurate in size to that of his
body. Franklin has a splendid op
portunity to win this honor, and in be
ing able to offer Mr. Hoiden as her
candidate for Solicitor gives Wake an
opportunity to express its fairness
and willingness to divide Juclcial hon
His many friends are confident that
if Mr. Holden should be nominated he
will do" credit to this important posi
tion and to himself.
