THE AX FALLS IN

Stand in Fear of Decap
Julian HI. Bingham, Collector of
Internal Revenues for the District of
Alabama, a recent appointee of Pres.
ident Roosevelt, has been kicked out
of office, for reasons stated by Post
master General Payne as follows:
,:The change in the office of Col
lector of Internal Revenue for the
District of Alabama in no wise reflects
upon the integrity or ability of Mlr.
Bingham, the incumbent of the office.
It is one of those things which oc
casionally happens in po!itics. The
position taken by the Republicans of
Alabama at theit recent State Con
vention as unterstood by the Repub
licans of the North is looked upon as
a perversion of the fundamental prino
ciples of the Republican Party, and
Mlr. Biugham is, in a measure, held
responsible for that action; hence the
"Neither the Administration nor
the Repdamin Party of the North
will stand for the exclusion of any
section of our people by reason of
their race or color, when in other
respects such persons have complied
with the laws and are eligible under
the law to full and free participati.,n
inu political action, and are of a high
standard of personal character. In
other words, there are now a hundred
colored men in Alabama who come
up to the requirements of the recent
Iyadopted State Constitution, and
are e'igible for bparticipantion in politi
cl atlffirs, and the action of the Re
publican Convention referred to in
arbitari;y excluding them is not ap
p)roved, no more than such action
would he approved if it were taken in
Ohio or Indiaua."
A Washington disj atch adds :
"The direct cause of Bingham's
removal, it is said, was the protest of
negro Icelegstious which called on tht
President tiom Northern and South.
It is said that three other high
Federal officials in this State are
slated for decapitation in pursuatnce
of the President's policy of punishing
the white Rtepublican leaders of Ala
iama. To further emphasize his
position it is understood that Roose
velt will have a negro appointed chief
deputy clerk in the office of Internal
Revenue Col!ector, and will place
negroes in other subordinate Federal
positions in this State."

The sugar factory of Messrs. Na

ascending bank of Bayou Lafourche,
at a short distance above Ialblie
ville, in Assumption parish, was com

obtains that the fire started in the

exploded. This rumor, however, we
have been unablle to verify, and we

Stop, Look, and Listen.
Last Monday the Supreme Court
of the State rendered a decision ii
which ftIgain reiterated the doctrinen
that on apl roaching a railroad cross
ing one must "stop, look, and listen"
to satisfy himself that there' is no
danger from an approaching train,
before he ventures to croes. The
rule is thus stated mn the syllabus of
1. One who reaches a railway
ciossing on a public highway is under
the duty to btop, look and hlsten, and
if a train be approaching, it is his
further duty to so act as to minimize
the danger and insure his safety, if
possible, ualer the circumstances and
conditions then confronting him. 2.
The party who has the last clear
opportunity of avoiding ano accident
must, notwithst.nding the negligence
of his opponent, avail himself of that
opportunlty. 3. The greater the
difficulty of seetog and hearing the
train as he approaches a crossing,
the greater caution the law imposes
upon tbq taveler.

of acquiring 160 acres as frontage on
