The New Orleans Picayune contains tb e following : "The publi spirited citizens of Jack eon," a ays the North Mississippi Herald, 'are making an effort to raise $1.0JJ with w hich to l.-sue o.twC copies of a hand book of the ;-ate, to contain all the ad vantages an i in lac ?aients oJered by Mississippi as a home for industrious farmers. A circular letter, asking a mail contribution has been mailed to all the towns in the stte It met with a prompt and substantial response by Water Valley's wide t.wake citizens. The railroad companies hhvs promised to dis tr'd ute this look free of charge over the ita'.es that are being depopulated by the better class of farirers notably North and South Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa. L very branch of industry within our borders should meet this ap peal ia did the busirc-s men of Water Valley. It U a work of Vital importance to the future of Mississippi, and one which has been too Img neglected." The Kansas farmer who would ex change Kansas for Mississippi would te pretty homesick bsf ore the first year bid pass L Kansas may be dry, but 31 iasissij.pl ia incst'y hopelessly wet. There ia iittla or no white society in the country that approaches even the back woods districts of Kansas; the climate la hut and sickly, the laws are poorly en forced, tad the people, who raise only c Jtton, get deeper in debt every year. Little or no emigration will go to Missis 6ippL Aside from the qcettion of right and irronjf sad viewed from the standpoint of its effect on the liquor trail;..;, the action of the Chicago & Alton in regard to liquor drinking among employes, ia one of the most important steps ever taken toward the suppression of the saloon. When the saloon is deprived of customers it will die. No legislation will be necessaj-y. Should all the employers of labor in the United States follov the example of this railroad and taw em ployes submit to it, it would le but a little while till it would be hard to land a saloon. They couldn't live and would be compelled to close their doors. The great aim of the prohibitionist would be accomplished without legislation and the liquor question would disappear from politics. There is only one thing stand ing in the way of this solution cf the problem and that is that it might precipitate a revolution. There is no greater power or one more lirmiy en trenched in the country than the liquor interest, and it stops at nothing when it is assailed in a really dangerous manner.

Van Valkenburg Says an Insurance Lohby llcdnlts IMa trously. 21. W. Van Valkenburg says the in surance men of Topeka have no inten tion of opening a lobby at the next leg islature for the purpose of warding oil hostile legislation, notwithstanding rum ors published in local and foreign papers. "The bill hostile to our interests, I see, has been formulated," he says, "I believe is the work of a few people who hold some grievance against the insurance men of the state. It sounds to me like a Populist bill, and there isn't chance enough for its passage to make a lobby worth having. We never had but one lobty that was six years ago and it re sulted so disastrously th at we haven't had one since. There appears to be men ia every legislature who are there for what they can inatte on the side. They take advantage of a lobby to introduce a bill harmful to its interests which thev know will never come close to passing, in order that they may be 'seen' aud the bill ia killed. We don't propose to in vite any such practices as this. "The house and the governor are Re publican and we are willing to leave our interests with them. Insurance has come to be recoguized as one of the legitimate necessities of the state, equally with banking. The talk of a maximum insurance rate bill is all bosh. You know you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. Tney may lix cheap rates beyond which we cannot go, but they can't make us insure for that. We won't write policies at all. take farm insurance for instance. My companies, and in fact nearly half of the companies, won't take Kansas farm risks at an; rice. It is because dur ing the two years we tried it the losses exceeded tine premiums by nearly a hundred per cent. Now tain of reducing the farm rate is bosh on the. face of it. "1 here are s une features of the pro posed bill, which I she outlined in the Jolk.val, which are really desirable. One of these is for a tire coroner in each county. This is a good thing and the in surance people want it The rest is simply in the line of Superintendent Sniier's recommendations, aud I don't think Sni ier's recotn mendations will have a great deal of weight with the Kepub licau administration." Other local insurance men confirm Mr. Van Yalken burg's statement, that no in surance lobby is contemplated. . PERSONAL AND POLITICAL. Ivd Hoch thinks John Q. Royce ought to be elected chief clerk of the house. Miss Annie L. Swayze will be a caodi date for chief enrolling clerk of the house. btate Auditor Van R Prather climbed the st.ite house stairs yesterday the first time for four months. A. W. Smith, who is not exactly in the lead in the senatorial light, is here look ing after his interests. lluh Bono of Comanche county has secured his rooms for the coming session and will be here as an irrigation agitator. George W. Crane says be would rather have the good will of a member of the legislature than the promise of his vote. F. F Grimes who will represent Wichita county in the house this winter has joined the irrigation boomers at the Cope-laud. Samuel Barr who vva3 sentenced to pay a fine of 00 and serve sixty days in jail at Abilene has been pardoned by Gov ernor Lewelling. J. D. Fry, a member of the famous BialucH: gang of Montgomery county, is trying to get a pardon. He was sent to the penitentiary in 1 S SI. The state board of pardons has re turned twenty-one applications for par dons to the governor with the recom mendation that they be refused. F. M. Kelly of Kendall, who was known in the last house as "Kelly of Kearney," is at the Copeland. He is for irrigation and for Charley Lobdeil for speaker. George It. Burr, of St. John, who wants to tie state bank commissioner when John Iireidentlial gives up his job, has joined the politicians of Copeland county. A western Kansas member elect of the legislature s ivs tnere will bo no appro priation for tiie completion of the state bouse unless a good big appropriation is made for experimenting in irrigation. State Superintendent Snider has some ofiieiai communications between himself and Attorney General Little ia reference to the disposal of the reciprocal tax money which will soon be made public. Lieutenant Governor-elect James A. Troutmau says the prohibitory amend ment will not be resubmitted and he i3 of the opinion there wdi not be to exceed forty resubmission votes in the legisla ture. Representative J. E. Frazerof Newton, says he wants to introduce "House con current resolution No. 1," at the coming session of the legislature. If he has that privilege the resolution will call for a cotiatituiional convention. W. J. Fitzgerald, who will occupy the seat in the house this winter whicu was held down by Mike button, of Dodge City, two years ago, has secured quarters at the Copeiaud for the coming oession. lie is auother irrigatiouist. C. S. Brown, who was let out of the Shawnee county jail by the couatv com missioners a few days ago on the promise that be would pay his tine of -f 100 on the installment plan has been pardoned by Governor Lewelling aud he will not have to pay the hue at all. Among the members of the house spoken of as likely to be chairman of the judiciary committee, are: F. A. Kora baun of Wichita; John G. Johnson, Gar nett; J. K. Cubbison, Kansas City; -S . It. Hopkins, Garden City; R. G. Robinson, Holton; and J. VV. Sueafor, of Concordia. Mrs. Fannie Beardsley, who has been a clerk in tue a ijutant general's oriice since Governor Humphrey's administration at a salary of f oJ a month, wants to retain her place unaer Governor Morrill. Ex Adjutant General Roberts is working lor her retention and most of her supporters are old soldiers. Governor Lewelling, like his prede cessors is getting in his work in the par don business iu the closing days of his administration. The governor's signa ture let three men out of the penitentiary yesterday. William Morris of Sedgwic. county, C. E. Briely of Sedgwick county, and Everett Badey of Geary county. Governor-elect Morrill says he was taught to dance wheu a boy and an in augural ball would be a nice thing, but it is his idea it would be more appropriate to send the money to the needy people in western Kansas, and on account of the great poverty existing in that section of the state the people out there ought to be remembered when the appointments are made. 1 BOOKS AND MAGAZrXEZ. "The Crucifixion of Philip Strong," written by Rev. C. 31. Sheldon of To peka, is one of the timely and attractive books of the season. It is published by that standard and well known house, A. C McClurg & Co., Chicago. An eastern critic says of the volume: "A novel of unusual interest and timeliness, which deals with the church and modern so ciety. Philip Strong, the hero, is an honest, forceful, courageous minister, who believes that he should not allow his church to be simply a social club. His etforts to stem the tide of luxury and sel fishness, his attempts in a series of ser mons on Christ and Modern Suciety to place before his congregation the true Christian ideal, and their repudiation of it and him are told ia a way that will hold the reader interested to the end. A strong arraignment of a lethargic church and a call to better and higher thiugs." The book is on sale at Kellam's. The holiday number of the Y'oung Peo ple's Magazine, Boston, is appropriate to the season and interesting to the class for which it is published the youug folks.

"Fire and Water," New York is a weekly publication devoted to lire pro tection, water supply, hydraulic, sanitary and municipal engineering.

Clarence Cook's paper on "Artists as Historians," while it turns on a collection of pictures from Jerome Ferris, bears out the New York Quarterly Illustrator in its breadth of view by claiming that the artist of today, who goes everywhere aud sees everything, by the faithfulness of his observations and the truth of his rendering, is making an invaluable rec ord of the times.
