            Hon. Geo. K. Nash for Governor.
Ohio Afro-Americans, Recognizing His Loyalty and Friendship,
  Will Solidly Support Him--Hon. Wm. B. Stewart on State
  Columbus, O., Special.--The nomination of Judge George K.
Nash for governor by the Republican State convention, which
convened in this city last week, was a triumph for President Mc-
Kinley and Senator Hanna, as well as for Judge Nash.  The
high standing of Judge Nash, both as a jurist and citizen was
greatly in his favor.  Judge Nash is one of the purest of men,
both in private and public life, a man against whom no one could
possibly have aught.  He deserved the nomination more than
any man in the Republican party of Ohio, for his long service to
the party justly earned for him this honorable distinction.
  But it is as a friend to the race which most concerns us, and
one who knows Judge Nash knows that during all his life he has
been a constant friend of our people. He has never lost an op-
portunity to befriend the race, and his friendship has not been of
that kind which was shown  for political effect, but rather the
friendship of an honest, conscientious man who champions the
right of the lowly, who  believes that the race should and must
enjoy all the rights and privileges vouchsafed to it by the Con-
                                   No Afro-American  ever
                                 went to Judge Nash for a
                                 favor, if he were deserving,
                                 but what he received it. No
                                 chairman of the Republican
                                 State executive committee of
                                 Ohio ever showed the consid-
                                 eration for colored men as
                                 did Judge Nash, who  was
                                 chairman  in  1897.  Hon.
                                 George A. Myers, who served
                                 on the committee with him,
                                 was given the same cordial
                                 treatment that was accorded
                                 his white confreres, and the
                                 management of the colored
                                 vote was left unreservedly to
                                 Mr.  Myers, and his judgment
                                 and suggestions accepted in
