Buford and Johnson Will Both Seek Vacancies On Supreme Court Bench

Tallahassee, Nov. 1--Two candidates for the seats of Chief Justice West and Judge Ellis, of the state supreme court, in the June primary next year, are already in the field, although neither has as yet started active campaigning. They are Attorney General Rivers Buford and Former State Senator J. B. Johnson, who is now attorney for the drainage board and internal improvement trustees.

Mr. Johnson stated recently that he would run for either the office of Judge West or Judge Ellis, a six year term. It all depends, he said, on which one General Buford decides to run for.

Two other judges of the high court will be affected by the June primary. They are Judges Brown and Strum, who were appointed by the governor to serve until they could run for office in the next election, if they desire to succeed themselves.

Whether or not any of the present members of the supreme court bench, whose terms of office expires with the next primary, will run to succeed themselves has not as yet been made known. One or two of them, when approached on the subject, stated that they had as yet nothing to give out, but that they would announce in ample time to conduct a vigorous campaign, in event they desire to enter the race.

Attorney General Burford stated a short time ago that he was definitely in the running.

"I'm going to campaign when the time comes," the department of justice head declared, "and you might say that I'm going to campaign to win."

Death of Mrs. J. Baxter Campbell in Quincy Last Thursday Afternoon

Despite all that medical skill could do to save her, on last Thrusday afternoon at 4 o'clock at her home on South Madison street in Quincy, Mrs. Frances Campbell, wife of J. Baxter Campbell, passed to that rest which remaineth to the people of God after nearly two weeks of unconscious prostartion resulting from a stroke of apoplexy on October 24. She died without pain, and after only a momentary struggle her pure spirit passed into the mystery of God which her devoted husband and children and sisters grouped about her bedside bowed their heads in sobbing resignation to the degree from which there is no appeal.

Dear, good woman of Quincy had done what they could to relieve the strain on the family and alleviate their sorrow during Mrs. Campbell's long period of unconsciousness and when it became known in the city that she was dead there were expressions of deep regret from all who knew her.

Friday afternoon at the Methodist church, where a large audience, representative of the best men and women of Quincy had gathered, the funeral sermon was delivered by Rev. F. J. Patterson, an impressive address, with appropriate music by the choir, and followed by a long line of cars the hearse containing the remains moved to the Eastern cemetery where amid solemn and tearful silence the beloved body was consigned to its last resting place.

After the grave had been filled ladies came forth with so many tributes of rare and beautiful flowers that the new made mound was literally covered from sight and the gloom of the graves seemed to disappear under their rich and glowing loveliness. The bar of Quincy, the city government, the city employees, Methodist Women's Missionary Society and many others sent those tender and appealing symbols of their respect and sorrow and love; and if the spirit of the dear lady whose frail body rested beneath them was there to look on she must have loved that wonderful tribute, for her fine and gentle soul always found a subtle and restful sympathy in her flowers and she sought their company as though they were living things.

The pall bearers at the funeral were W. W. Wright, O. J. Clayton, E. P. Gregory, W. B. Greer, J. H. Harrell and Hugh Taylor, all members of the Quincy lodge.

Mrs. Campbell was born and reared in Gadsden county, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Mitchel, both long dead, and her girlhood was passed on the old Mitchell plantation about eight miles from Quincy, where her great grandfather settled nearly a century ago. She was of old Virginia colonial stock and inherited the fine qualities of the sturdy pioneers who were among the first to subdue the wilderness of Florida and plant American civilization on its soil.

She was born July 9, 1973, and was 52 years old at the time of her death. She is survived by her husband, J. Baxter Campbell, the Well known lawyer, her son, John B. Campbell, Jr., her daughters, Mrs. Agatha Poston, of Quincy, and Mrs. Gladys McDuffie, of Lake City, her sisters, Miss Kate Mitchell, of Chicago, and Miss Lucy Mitchell, of Americus, Ga., and her brothers, W. G. and E. A. Mitchell, of this county.

The writer of these lines could fill columns in heartfelt tribute to the memory of Mrs. Campbell, but space will not permit. She was a rare and beautiful character, so quiet, so gentle, so thoughtful of others, and the presiding spirit of duty dominated all her life. A member of the Methodist church for many years, she was a Christain without guile or cant, and she loved her husband and children with utter devotion and made her home a dear resting place from which she sought to exclude the turmoil and troubles of the outside world.

Only time can heal the anguish of such grief as her dear ones left behing now feel, but she has passed to the peace of God that passeth understanding, and in that faith the selfishness of sorrow will pass away and leave only the gently, fragrant memory of a good woman gone to her reward.
