Franklin Potts Glass, Sr. 1858-1934

I came across Franklin Potts Glass, Sr. (1858-1934) of Alabama. He graduated from Princeton University and was a newspaper editor in Alabama and briefly in Missouri. What made this man interesting in 1913 the Governor of Alabama appointed Glass to a United States Senate when the incumbent died in office. The Senate refused to seat him because of Alabama state law required the Governor to call special elections to fill vacant US Senate seats in Alabama-the Seventeenth Amendment just took effect direct elections of the United States Senate. I thought you might be interested in doing the article since you are from the area. Thanks-RFD (talk) 11:38, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

Just a note: With all the articles you're producing, you may want to use (or memorize) WP:Citation templates. In this article, for example, you were using the citation template for web rather than the citation template for books. As you can see by my edit, Google Books is not the publisher of these works. When you call up the book, look in the lefthand panel for a list of places where you can buy the book, and then look under one of those links to find the publisher, year, ISBN number, etc. Best, Yoninah (talk) 15:01, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

You learn fast! Good job on the book references! Two points: (1) Google Books is not a publisher; the fact that you're linking to it in the url is enough. (2) You don't have to italicize the title in a book citation; the template does it for you. Best, Yoninah (talk) 23:49, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

Speedy deletion nomination of Charles E. Maple

Ambox warning pn.svg
You may want to consider using the Article Wizard to help you create articles. If this is the first article that you have created, you may want to read the guide to writing your first article.

A tag has been placed on Charles E. Maple requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done because the article, which appears to be about a real person, individual animal(s), an organization (band, club, company, etc.), or web content, does not indicate how or why the subject of the article is important or significant: that is, why an article about that subject should be included in an encyclopedia. Under the criteria for speedy deletion, articles that do not indicate the subject's importance or significance may be deleted at any time. Please see the guidelines for what is generally accepted as notable.

If you think that you can assert the notability of the subject, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hang on}} at the top of the article, immediately below the speedy deletion ({{db-...}}) tag (if no such tag exists, the page is no longer a speedy delete candidate), and providing your reasons for contesting on the article's talk page, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion, it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself. You may freely add information to the article that would confirm the subject's notability under Wikipedia guidelines.

You may want to read the guidelines for specific types of articles: biographies, websites, bands, or companies. Jgr2 (talk) 17:43, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

Technically this article is okay for DYK, but from my perspective the hook fact cannot be understood without looking up the Mier Expedition article as well. You have more experience with DYK than I do but I feel this is a potential problem. Can you add a sentence or two to the explanation of the publication, or create a hook about the historian instead of about the Black Bean Episode? --Pgallert (talk) 19:46, 1 November 2010 (UTC)

Hi again, I am not really a regular at DYK and for this reason don't want to be too bold. I tried to clarify my concerns at your nomination's entry. Cheers, Pgallert (talk) 15:29, 2 November 2010 (UTC)

Copyright concerns with Conservapedia

Hi. With respect to the article Four Price, I'm afraid that it will have to be rewritten. Conservapedia has a revocable license (see [1]). Wikipedia requires a non-revocable release. The question was raised at the copyright problems board, following which I made contact with one of the Wikimedia Foundation's associate counsel, who advises that we should not import their content accordingly. I've blanked the article to permit time for it to be addressed. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 00:03, 12 November 2010 (UTC)

Sulphur Louisiana article "history" section content

Please forgive me if this is the improper forum to discuss this, but I am new to this. I was reading the subject article this morning and noted your contribution to the history section concerning the recent election of a republican mayor. As someone who lived much of my life in Sulphur, I do not see this contribution as germane to the history of Sulphur. As such I wish you would consider deleting it. Thank you.

Dan Flores DYK

I like your article on Dan Flores. Your second proposed hook is better, but needs some adjusting. Might I suggest:

  • ...that historian Dan Flores wrote a study of the Red River Expedition, which set forth in 1806 for the American Southwest as Lewis and Clark were returning from the Pacfic Northwest?

I think the adjustment makes it more eye-catching, and less over-claim. ("A" study vs. "the" study.) In fact, I think it might get approved with an adjustment. - Tim1965 (talk) 02:45, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Ed Scogin

Thanks for writing the article about Ed Scogin, whom I knew quite well. He had a frosty relationship with one of the hi educ people who knew me but couldn't get close to Ed. When the hi educ person needed to get Ed to consider something (how to vote on a bill), the hi educ person would get me to communicate with Scogin. One time even that didn't work, even though the idea was good; so I got the Republican women in Slidell on his case. That's all it took. Rammer (talk) 03:37, 26 November 2010 (UTC)

Elmo Scott Watson

Hello Billy Hathorn. Recently you added the name Elmo Scott Watson to the List of people from Bloomington, Illinois. It appears he is from Colfax, Illinois and not Bloomington. I see that he was affiliated with Illinois Wesleyan University, but there is no mention of him living there. This type of affiliation is more appropriate for the University's Notable Faculty section than the town's. However, if you know of a reference showing a significant conection to the town, (i.e., living there) then please replace the current reference per-WP:USCITY. Cheers, Dkriegls (talk) 13:12, 13 December 2010 (UTC)


He lived in Bloomington from 1947-1950 when on the faculty of Methodist-affiliated Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, where he received an honorary Doctor of Letters degree. The move change brought him close to his family farm in McLean County, where he had hoped to retire. (Instead he died in 1951.) Billy Hathorn (talk) 15:49, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
Billy, as I've told you SEVERAL times concerning the Bossier City and Shreveport, La Notable Residents - it doesn't matter what you know to be true - you must provide a reference/citation that shows this to be true. Your personal knowledge is not sufficient. Wikiwikikid (talk) 21:52, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
