He declared his be lief that the bar of Mississip pi should be protected by a commission whose duty it would be to examine all ap plicants for admissioi to the bar so thoroughly that shy sters and "ambulance chas-. ers" could not get license tov practice law, and .that it would require something more than a few weeks' "cramming" on technf6al examination questions 1 0 pass. The Register, erstwhile politically opposed to the Governor-elect, recognizes the wisdom of Mr. Bilbo's . advice and commends his stand in this matter. Every good citizen of the State will pay a hearty "Amen, Gover nor." So-called lawyers who em ploy negro runners to bring in business and stir up trou ble for the few dollars they can squeeze out of people are a disgrace to their pro fession and an eye-sore to the communities where they live.

Rilho's succrestion is undouht frllv n o-nod one. and his declara tion that "the law is no longer a nmfession. but a sorbid trade, comes perilously near to being thfi evart truth. It ia certain, at least, that the Dresent svstem whereby persons are admitted to 'the practice of aw is notoriously lax ana metric- ient, and that persons are given license each year who are not en titled t6 practice. Some of the Chancellors are exceedingly care- ess in passing on the papers pi nnnlicants. and especially that phase of the law requiring that the applicant must be of good moral character. A State examining board, if properly constituted, would un doubtedly tend to elevate the professional standard and reduce the crop of shysters and ambul ance chasers.-tiacKson jsews. !. .viaiivti y")tiMihe ttrmJ down:,,,. , V Ihat'i the gamal '. . if jou'n used to giving- knocks, 4 Change your stylell - Throw bouquet, instead of rockfl v .-For a while. .

Discussing the congressional campaign ir the Fifth District for the scat tnade vacant by the death of Congressman S. A. Witherspoon, tho Vicksburg Evening Tost says: "Ex-State Senator John A. Bai ley, of Lauderdale county, it is said will be a candidate for Con gress to succeed the lamented VV itherspoou. VVe predict that Mr. Bailey will be a strong candi date, lie is an earnest supporter of Vardaman and Bilbo. " If that is the only reason why Mr. Bailey should be a "strong candidate" then he is not entitled to a single vote not even his own. Just how friendship for varda man and Bilbo qualities a man for a seat in Congress is beyond our ability to fathom. , Certain it is, no man with a logical mind can construe it as a qualification, and no honest man will adopt it as an excuse in casting his vote. The Fifth district race ought to be decided upon the qualifications of the men who oiler for the honor, and the principles for which they stand.

The Su The successful men are they who have worked while their neighbors' minds were vacant or occupied with passing trivialities, who have been acting while others have been wrestling with indecision. They are the men who have to read all that has been written about their craft; who have learned from the masters and fellow-craftsmen of (TftinrifinPfl. ftnd'nroftted therahv: 1 S I .

Thus they have carried themselves above mediocrity, ana in striving to do things the best they could, have educated themselves in the truest manner. - "In Russia also," says Marshal von llindenbiirg, "the Emperor and govermueuu plainly desire the continuation of the war. The most remaikable thing is that all these nations do not see that they are only sacrificing themselves for Great Britain." Another echo of "the hymn of hate" "we hate but one England." Aud the Marshal, too, trails off his inter view with the stale, stock, fiction, that "the war was forced on Ger many." Such a falsification of the manifest facts may have in fluenced the Germ-in people. But the reiteration of the palpably false is an aggravation to the in telligence and right feeling of- the neutral world. Vicksburg Her- Everythina for ft fruit cuke at Crisr- NOTICE.
