“How would W.W. Ware sound for state senator from this district next year?” - News. Well, really, Bro. Williams, we are compelled to say that it sounds a very great deal better now than it will sound next fall, and judging from the vote that has just been cast we think we come very nearly voicing the sentiment of the voters of Phillips County when we say W.W. Ware for senator would harmonize with public feeling about as well next fall as would the filing of a cross-cut saw with the music of an old bull. But of course this is not time to discuss the chances of any man for that position, and we are confident that had Mr. Ware known of this blunder being made he would not have allowed the above item to have appeared in the News or any other paper. But the old man is always going off prematurely and his friends must put up with his shortcomings and mistakes.
