The Lesson of It.
The following sensible editorial
appeared in the Commercial Appeal
The lesson taught by the execu
tion of two mere boys in Kentucky,
one of whom was reared in Mem
phis, and the fate of the gang of
young scoundrels who operated in
this city until broken up ought not
to go unheeded.
These boys were the product of
their environment, and their en
vironment was made for them by
their elders, by . society., Heredity
may exercise some influence, but
heredity is passive and merely po
tential. Environment is the active
factor, the moving and working
Moral vagations and obliquities
are encouraged and made possible if
not inevitable by idleness and in
dulgence permitted by fond mothers
and fool fathers. The boy who is
too nice and tender to engage in
some useful employment, but who
must be allowed to roam about the
alleys and purlieus soon falls in
with bad company, and soon be
comes quite as bad as any company
he can fall in with. He soon gets
beyond the control of his parents
who may admit that he is a little
"wild" or "thoughtless," but not
"bad," and would never do anythiug
wrong but. for the evil influence of
other boys who are "bad."
Far better for a boy who has an
exhuberant spirit and plenty of the
animal in him to be put to work
twelve hours a day in a Pennsyl
vania silk mill or in a Carolina cot
ton factory. If the devil is in him
as a heritage this will keep it
smothered. Again, as society pre
pares the environment that converts
boys into criminals, society should
provide an antidote by furnishing
an industrial school whereat the
morally deformed may be reformed
It is only a pity that the r3formin
could not begin with the parents.
Two vacances to which the gover
nor will have the power to appoint
have come into the present pros
pects and furnished life for th
Mate situation. The seuatoria
contest enters to a large extent than
is generally imagined in these ap
pointmentsj a d some " big politics
will be played in the contests
Chairman M. XV. Baptist, who U
said to be about ready to resign hi
position in order to enter the service
of the Southern Railway, will leave
a place on the railroad commission
that is desired by a number o
people. Theo. F. King is slated
to resign the position of State comp
troller on December 19, to enter
offices pay well, are close to th
administration and afford excellen
opportunities for takiDg part in the
big affairs of State.
As a purely preliminary matter
which must be considered in the
general round up, the senatoria
fight has narrowed itself down to
Gen. William B. Bate and the lion
Benton McMillin. All of the
other possibilities are making way
for the two champions of the re
epective wings of the State politics
Behind the Bate interests are Car
mack, Taylor, Frazier and the rest
of that ilk, who have held leading
places in the ranks of the party.
Behind McMillin, the old McMillin
machine is actively at work.
Neither side wants either of the
two big offices filled by partisans
of the other. Senator Bate's friends
want men in the two places who
can be counted on as active workers
in time of need. The same senti
ment actuates Mr. McMillin.
For the railroad commissioner
snip, vareu. o. aj. vocKrott is an
avowed candidate. He is with the
bination to a fiuish. Capt. John T.
Ilillsman is also of the 83me fate.
Tom Peeler is supposed to be of
the like quality, although the
leaders here are not certain as to
his position. On the other hand,
J. D.Senter and John A. Tyson,
who are out for the place, are
aligned with the McMillin forces,
according to the form sheets of the
politicians. M. B. -Gilmore, who
is also named as a candidate, is
championed by the railroad people
to a greater extent than any of the
candidates. . This influence is a
mighty ona at Nashville.
Active work is being done by all
of the candidates.
The most interesting passage at
arms, politically, comes from th
comptroller's fight. Frank M
Thompson, chairman of the State
committee, is slated for this place
and it is generally believed that b
will be the favorite candidate of th
governor. He is not acceptable to
half of the governor's friends, who
are making war on him, and is very
dear to the other half, who are
working for his interests. Frank
Dibbrell of Sparta is out for th
appointment. Ho was a candidate
for the place before the last legisla
ture. Then there is Leon Trous
dale, who has been in the comp
troller's office so long that he is
fixture. lie wants to come under
the wire as a winner and is having
things done for him. Severa
others are irr prospect.
Wise politicians say thatThomp
son is the mau who will get the
E. B. Craig, former State treas
urer, and president of the new in
surance company to which comp
troller King is going, is in the city
aud some interesting political mat
ters are being discussed 'lie wil
no uouot take a nana in carrying
out whatever plans Mr. King may
have in the premises. Memphis
Cox and the
TIT " - a
Washington, July 2o l he name
of Minnie V. Cox, the negro post
mistress at Indianola, Miss., wil
be stricken from the civil pension
roll, created by president Roosvelt
on April 1 of next year. In th
meantime her salary of $1,200 pe
year has been reduced to$l,100, and
this is the amount she will receive
as a reward for her timidity in fail
ing to return to the Indianola post
office, despite the assurances o
oenator jic.L.aunn ana officials o
the town that she would be pro
tected. The action of the depart
ment is probably th3 last chapter
in a case which excited nationa
interests for a time.
Last winter Minnie Cox, alarmed
by a petition from patrons of the
Iudianala postoffice, asking for her
resigination, closed np her office and
sent the resignation to Washington
The president declined to receive it
claiming that it was written under
threats of personal violence. Sh
was afraid to ' return to Indianola
and re-open the postoffice, but the
president ordered her salary to con
tinue with the result that for over
three months she has drawn from
the government at the rate of $1,200
per annum for no service and wil
continue on thev rolls at $1,100
dating from March 31, last. The
office being presidential the salary
is adjusted on the bases of the gross
receipts accruing tor the four
quarters ending March 31. When
the question came up for readjust
ment last April the officials of the
department, not knowing what ac
tion to take in view of the order
of the president, referred the mat
ter to the assistant attorney-general
He holds that under the law the
receipts govern the salary, which
must therefore be reduced in pro
portion to the decrease in receipts
No mouey having been taken in
during the last three mouths of the
postoffice year, the salary was there
fore reckoned on a nine-month's
receipts basis, and $1,100 fixed
for this year's pension.
The action of the department is
important in that the readjustment
rule is to be followed, which means
that as no receipt will be taken in
this year there can be no salary
next year. I he $1,100 which Min
nie Uox will receive trom the
treasury this year comes as" a mere
present. So far as can be learned
she is not even in the State of Mies
Paradoxical as it may Beem, the
postoffice department at the same
time has reached the conclusion to
cut off the salary of the clerk, who
assisted Minnie Cox in assorting
the mail, though neither rendering
service to the government he would
seem as much entitled to a pension.
There was a suggestion in the
department today that when the end
of the postoffice year is reached on
March 31 a way may be found to
continue Minnie on the rolls by
establishing a postoffice near In
dianola and putting her in charge.
It is not considered likely, how
ever, that the postmaster will be
willing to settle in the Indianola
district, every inducement having
already been held out to her to re
turn to the Indianola office and re
Since the office has been shut up
by the president, the people of the
town have organized a special mail
service from a near postoffice and
suffer no inconvenience except
in the payment of the salary of
their special mail carrier.
