FRIDAY, MARCH 27, 1903.
Governor Frazier eent his first
veto message to the House of Rep
resentive Friday morning on the
bill to create 3 dispensary for
Columbia. The bill was passed after
a two days' debate in the Senate,
and as it materially affects the
whiskey question the Governor's
action has been waited with consid
erable anxiety. The Governor takes
the stand that if it is immoral for a
citizen to engage in the whiskey
business, it is immoral for the mu
nicipality to do so.
lie eays: "It will not do to say
that the sale of liquor is imraonl
and injurious and should therefore
be prohibited when it is proposed
to be carried on by the citizen, and
then to say that the State through
its muuincipal agents will itself
proceed to carry on and monopolize
the business and receive the profits
therefrom. -If it is immoral and in
jurious in the one, it is equally so
in tLe other." He expresses the
opinion that the operation of the
law would prove a serious menace
to the four-mile law, and that it is
indefensible either on principle or a
Miss Worrell Honored.
Brigadier-General Homer L.
Iliggs, of Greenfield, commanding
the second Brigade, Tennessee Di
vision, United Sons of Confederate
Veterans, was in the city Saturday,
and appointed Miss Lula Taylor
Worrell, of Jackson, to be brigade
sponsor to the New Orleans reunion
which will be held in May next.
Miss Worrell at au early date will
appoint her maids of honor.
The fair sponsor is a real
Daughter of the Confederacy, being
the daughter of the late J. J. Wor
rell, a Confederate soldier. She is
an accomplished and lovely young
lady, aud her appointment will be
received with pleasure throughout
the brigade. Miss Worrell is also
a Daughter of the American Revo
lution aud comes of a distinguished
family. Her grand-uncle, Col.
John McCUnahan, founded the
Memphis Appeal, and she is a young
lady of marked literary talent.
Miss Worrell is a niece of Mrs.
W. A. Moore, of Middleburg, and
the honor that has been conferred
upon her is a source of gratification
to her many friends in Hardeman
Col. Godwin not an Applicant.
Col. Johu R. Godwin, who has
been a member of the board of
trustees of the Western Hospital for
the Insane for the past sixteen
years, has notified Gov. Frazier,
that he can not acccept appoint
ment for another biennial terra, and
has recommended that John F.
McCallum of ' Memphis be ap
pointed to succeed him.
The terms of three trustees of the
asylum expired on the first Monday
in February, but they bold over
until their successors are appointed
Col. J. R. Godwin, of Memphis,
Dr. Wright, of Huntingdon, and
Hon. A. J. Coates of Bolivar. Mr.
Coates is chairman of the board of
trustees. Col. Godwin was one of
the first trustees appointed, and
witnessed the laying of the corner
stone of the first building erected.
He has labored ably and faithfully
for the betterment of the institution.
Immediately after the appoint
ment of the three new trustees the
board will meet and dispose of
several important matters. They
will consider the purchase of an ad
ditional 1Q0 acres of land needed
for the asylum, and the appropri
ation of a sufficient amount to in
sure the asylum buildings. Com
