whatsoever, as in my opinion many
of the accidental and other shootings
and killings ol todaj are caused by
the desire for nuns or pistols created
ui tho minds of the youth while play
with toys of (bis character.
Pome notion should be taken to rid
our Circuit Courts of the expense of
trying minor eases. Wo often Bee cas
es In court where many witnesses are
called from their places of business,
sit around the courl house possibly
for half of the entile week at heavy
expense to the county, und when the
case is brought on for trial there Is
< ith<?;? nothing in it or possibly a fine
of one hundred dollars or less Is Im
posed In case of conviction, i think
it would be better to put more of thld
kind of eases in the hands of the mag
istrates, mi tl.iit they could be sum
marily dealt with at absolutely no
expense to tho county, and where they
could be given as much punishment
as is many times given hy our circuit
judges. Either this should be done,
or else you sin aid establish a court
for the trial Of all cases Jess than
felony, for you see from the extra
terms of Court held, from the special
judges being appointed, and other ex
penses, that the question is becoming
a serious one, and the people arc tired
and beginning to complain f the sys
tem as it now is.
Much has been said about the enact
ment of laws in regard to the labor in
our cotton mills These people arc
our people; the} are our kindred;
they are our friends, and in my opin
ion they should be let alone, and al
lowed t,< manage their own children

There has come to nie much Com
plaint In rognrd to tho management of
and dealings with (he patients and
property Of tho State Hospital for the
Insane and admission of persons who
should be tried in the criminal courts,
but who are accepted hy the super
intendent before a jury has acted upon
the case, l would rospcctfully recom
mend that you amend Sectloil 2,2-17,
Vol. 1. of the Code, by striking on,
flvb and. inserting seven, bo as to give
each Congressional district a repre
sentative upon that board; or possibly
it would bo better, If you would so
amend !? as to glVO each judicial cir
cuit u representative upon tho hoard.
In this way all parts of the State
would have a representative.
I respectfully recommend that you
amend the law Which places white
Convicts 111 the same camp and works
them along in the same squads with
negro convicts. I do not believe in
this, and believe that a governor would
ho justified in granting a pardon to
a white man who is thus treated, and
I beg of you to remedy this evil at
your earliest opportunity.
I would respectfully recommend
that you amend your present dispen
sary or prohibition Act so as to pro
vide that in case a majority of the
white citizens of nnj county shall do
sire a license system, that it may be
'?ranted. Section II. Article s, of the
Constitution of 1895, provides hi part:
The general assembly may llcenso
norsons or corporations to manufac
ture and sell and retail alcoholic li
quors or beverages within the State,
under such rules and restrictions as
it deems proper." Wo now have the
law so that they may have a county
dispensary or prohibition. Now, in
order to be truly Democratic and fair
to all parties. In my opinion, this
amendment - should be made. Upon
this platform I made my race for the
governorship, and upon this platform
I was elected, the majority of the
white people expressing themselves
as in favor of allowing those counties
where prohibition cannot be enforced,
and where the dispensary has proved
and is proving to be a supply station
of blind tigers and cheap whiskey?
that they should be allowed to have
[relief by this system. 1 would not
j favor, under any conditions, forcing
it upon any community, but If a ma
jority of their white people want it
it is their right as provided in our
Constitution, and they should have
it. And when 1 say white people I
mean white voters, und you should
provide that sill questions of this char
acter shall be settled In a primary,
where every white citizen is allowed
to vote, and not submit it In a gen
eral election, where the negro might
be and is the balance of power. Hut
under no conditions or circumstances
would I sign a bill allowing the rein
statement Of the old bar room system.
And If license is allowed l recommend
that you prohibit any whiskey being
sold in less quantities than one-half
pint, or between sunset and sunup,
and that you prohibit it from being
'drunk on the premises or sold under
any circumstances to minors or In
ebriates or behind closed (hairs or
screens; prohibit any obscene pictures
on the premises, or any billiard or
card r pool room connected therewith
nnd providing that any person holding
a license who shall violate any pro
vision of the law shall forfeit his li
cense and b<> forever thereafter bai led
from being licensed, and in addition,
be Imprisoned at hard labor in the
!Stat" penitentiary without the alter
native of a line.
I respectfully recommend thai yon
amend the present law so aa to make
executions for the crime of rape, or
assault with intent to ravish, public,
as I believe this will bring about more
sa*.isractory results ?al'owing others,
ai d particularly those jf the vounger
generation of that rar ? from which
most of these culprits come, to have
a full \ iew "of the punishment meted
out. Possibly by this means some
lynchlngs could be prevented, though
so long as this crime Is committed 1
have little hope of lynchlngs being
itcooed. Some newspapers and some
people, in every controversy between
the White man and the negro, seem to
take delight In taking Hie side of the
negro and denouncing the lynching,
but this is a White man's country and
will continue to be ruled by the white
man. regardless of the opinions or
editorials of quarter or half breeds or
foreigners. The pure blooded Cauca
