SUuSCRIPTIO N VIARLY $1,5
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 1913.
A EW s 1 WE .S
It is not generally the desire or
wish of the Gazette to intermeddle
in the political or business affairs
of our sister State of Mississippi,
but knowing the gentleman so well,
and for so many years, and know
ing his capabilities as an active, en
ergetic worker as an office man, we
cannot refrain from recommending
Mr. Henry B. Gaither, of Natchez,
for appointment of him as post
master of that city by President
elect Wilson, when he assumes the
duties of the high office, and comes
to make his appointments amongst
the Democrats to the varied offices
that will be necessary to be filled.
Mr. Gaither is, and has been a
true and tried Democrat, and his
fitness for the appointment to the
office for which he is a candidate is
too well known for us to refer to
at any great length.
As an office man, he has had
much experience in responsible ca
pacities; he is ever active, careful,
and obliging in the discharged of
all the duties that he has been called
upon 'o perform. For a number of
years he was the Tax Assessor and
Collector of the city of Natchez, and
discharged the exacting, arduous
and responsible duties of that office
in a most careful, painstaking man
ner, and appeared to have given
full satisfaction to the taxpayers of
that city, whose properties he was
called upon to assess, and also to
the Board of Mayor and Alder
men, by whom he was chosen, once,
and by the voters who gave him
The Gazette believes it can safely
say that the appointment of Mr.
Gaither would give general satisfac
tion, and in him Uncle Sam would
have a good, reliable, faithful and
painstaking public servant.
As tI Fr Sar.

Editor Tenmas Gaette,
St. Joseph, La.
Dsra Sin-Having occasion to appre
elate the liberal and sound views of your
columns, I take the liberty to invade
them, and offer a few remarks.
That somane of our country newspapers
should ever shout "free sugar," with no
other reasons than that of shouting, is
beyond my comprehension, from the fact
that free sugar, in the past, has failed to
cheapen sugar to the real (retail) con
I have wondered why, every time it
became necessary for a delegation of sugar
planters to go to Washington to present
views why the tariff should not be dis
turbed, that of the many positive reasons
advanced no mention is made of the
uarket that existed during the bounty
aystaem. If my memory serves me right,
I recall a 1 3-4 cent market for open pan
sngar, and above 2 cent for Vacuum Pan
yellows. Adding the bounty to this price,
gar brought the planters a fraction
over 4 ocents. Does that not prove what
the planters could expect withr free trade
sgaur? With no bounty and no tariff,
the question answers itself, as to what
would happen to the planters.
Now back to bolunty days. When the
planter sold his sugar for 2 cents and re
ceialved 2 cents from the government, who
bought that sugar?-the refineries! Let
us turn the files of the market for stand
ard granulated, in those days, and see
the quotations. Did the consumer get the
beneft of the two cents which were paid
the planter?-hedid not! Theonly ben
eciary that I can figure out is the big
rltincr, sometimes nick-named the "Su
gar Trust." The masses paid as much
for that "breakfast table sugar" as they
do now. Sugar isoneof the necessities
of ie that has not contributed to the
high ost of living; it has remained with
in the reach of all, steadily, and has gone
up in price accidentally, that is when the
mpply has been affected by tlhe growing
seasons, a condition which overtakes all
agricultural products occasionally.
Mr. Milling's presentation of our cause
was one of the most able that has ever
been presented to the Ways and Means;
still I imagine that reference to the rice
of sugar to tihe consumer, in the days of
free trade and bounty, would have served
to prove that sugar sold at retail at a
price nearly as at present; that the con
emer gained practically nothing; that
the buyer of our 2 cent sugar had a
"pudding" and Uncle Sam paid for the
UM nISo LETTES.

Mrs. John H. Chambliss, of Natchez, was awarded
the hundred dollar capital prize in the Penick & Ford
Co.'s great cake baking contest, which was open to
the whole South and participated In by thousands.
"GILT EDGE FLOUR"
We consider this an emphatic distinction-First, to
her, for knowing how to make the cake, and then to
the Charleston Millng Co. for knowing how to make
the flour. "GILT EDGE" is the result of years of
persistent endeavor to supply the house-wife with
a perfectly pure and satisfactory flour for cakes,
pastries and biscuits, and we do not believe it can
be improved upon. It is not bleached; just the
natural, creamy color, and delightfully sweet fla
vor of the famous Missouri red winter wheat.
