A Rampant Corruption. The trials of Senator Covington, Of Arkansas, at Little Rock, and of Boss Ruef. of San Francisco, both going on last week, show how widepsread is the corrupting influence of public service corporations. The board of supervis ors and the city officers of San Francis ico were paid hundreds of thousands of dollars through Ruef by public service corporations, and got franchises from the people for nothing, for which the corporations should have have hand somely paid. Eighteen officers testified they received bribes, each paid them the money. It was a system of corrup tion that had been going on for years. The large corporations carried the city and county officeis on their payroll re gularly. The trial of Senator Covington for bribery showed the same condition of things in Arkansas in the state senate. Senator John A. Hi tuple testified that Senator Covington was given $5,000 by the railroad to look after bills affect ing them, and divided the money in part with other senators including himself. The city brewers paid $7,000 to defeat the passage of a bill requiring beer to Ire inspected, and he received a share of the money as did Senators Covington, Tony, Butt, Holland, and others. He told of bribes given in Connection with vari ous other special bills, and of the sen ators whom he knew to have received part of the money. M. D. L. Cook testified that contractors who wanted an $800,000 appropriation to complete the state capital paid large sums of money to legislators to get the bill through, and told of distributing $12,500 of the money himself to differ ent senators, giving their names. He also told of distributing thousands of dollars in the way of bribes to dif ferent senators to defeat the pool room bill. Three senators besides Hinkle testified as to the bribery of themselves and others. The capitol of Pennsylvania was built for four and a half million dol lars, and contracts were made to fur nish the capital at the cost of eight and a half million dollars. Of this eight and a half million appropriated recent investigation shows that the contractor paid for furniture only three and a half million dollars. He got five million dollars for himself and those using political influences to get him the job. All these things prove and clearly prove that only the very liest men, the most honorable and correct, should be chosen as legislat ors and supervisors. Contractors and corporations have liecome more bold in schemes of corruption than ever b-e fore. Honesty, uncorruptible honesty is the prime qualification of this office and should lie for all. ' to The republicans in the Texas legisla ture have unanimously agreed in cau cus that they are for Roosevelt for a third term.

A Political Sensation. ________ the chief facts contained in a letter a great effect on fut.ure political events, a The latest political exposure that has come to the surface shows that Harri - man, the railroad magnate, was a large subscriber to the republican cam paign fund in 1904. President Roosevelt invited Harri man to come to Washington and asked him to raise money for the campaign, ' 'as it could not be successfully car ried on without sufficient money." On the promise of President Roose velt to appoint Senator Depew ambas sador to France, Harriman did raise $200,000. The checks of the subscrib ers were given to Treasurer Bliss, of the republican national committee, and hy him handed to Chairman Cort elyou. This large sum ' 'enabled the New York republican state committee to continue it s work with the res ult that 50,000 votes were turned^ in the City of New York alo ne." These are published by the New York World April 1 which was written in Decem ber, 1905, by Harriman to^Sidney Webster, of New Ydrk,"in which he describes his visit to Washington at the urgent request of President Roose velt, about a week before the national election of 1904. The letter which the New York World says Mr. Harri man admits having written will create intense political interest all over the country, as it proves the statesments of Judge Par ker andYthenDcmocratic leädOTS^thatYhe corporaticnsjand trust magnates were subscribers to the Re publican campaign fund and shows that large sums were used to corrupt the voters. It is plainly shown that President Roosevelt urged Harriman, the most unprincipled of the railroad magnates, to raise money to be used in New York and must have known that it was paid by the corporation manag ers who had evidently been given as surances of their interests being con served as a quid pro quo. No denials or explanations can get away from the fact that the money was paid, for Har riman undoubtedly can prove that fact by the checks which were returned and marked paid. These exposures are a serious blow to the political prestige of President Roosevelt and will undoubtedly have We understand that Hon. E.F. Noel, one of the leading candidates for gov ernor of Mississippi, will visit Vicks burg during the meeting of the Bar Association, which is to be held here in May. Mr. Noel has a number of friends here who will lie glad to see him mingling with legal lights, of whom he is one of the brightest. ' Erom accounts received from all over the state. Mr. Noels friend's predict that he will be in nte second primary, and that the gentlemen who will be fortunate enough to be in that race with him. will find in him a most formidable opponent. While in Vicksburg it is very pro bable that Mr. Noel will deliver a speech iat the court house, which the public will be invited to hear.—Vicks burg Post. a no ing his esy all it Only One Way To Vo It. According to the figures of the last auditor's report, covering the year 1905, the average value of lands cleared and uncleared in Holmes county was $8.99, and in Coahoma county. $8.48. Two thirds of Holmes county is in the hills, and no part of Coahoma is out of the delta, and embraces some of the very best land in the state. Along the edge of the delta, in Holmes, much of the land is almost valueless, from overflows of the creek, and being cov ered with sand, county, on an average, are worth more than twice as much as lands in Holmes. You can hardly buy an acre of cleared land in Coahoma for less than $60 an acre, and much of it can - not be purchased for $100 an acre, and yet these lands are assessed on an av erage at fifty cents an acre less than Holmes county lands. This is an evil, a great evil ; and two other strictly delta counties, Quitman and Sharkey, are assessed at less i>er acre than Holmes county. This evil and injus tice could be corrected by a board of equalizers. It can not be corrected in any other way. If our lands are asses sed at threa-fourths their value, then lands ofCoahoma'are assessed at about one-fourth of their value, which would make our people pay three times as much tax as the people of Coahoma, the state tax being six mills. The evil is equally great when it comes to railroad property. Railroads worth $75,000 a mile are assessed at about $11,000, about one-seventh of what they are worth. When you pay seven times as"much tax according to the value of your property as rail roads pay for theirs, and pay three times as much tax as land owners in strictly delta counties .pay for their lands, remember that those opposing a state board of equalization, whatever may be their motives, are working against you, and for the railroads, and for undervaluation of property else where. Whatever may be their intent ion, the result of their work is the same, and the in jury to you is the same. _ Among the visitors to Hattiesburg last week was that persistent and tire less campaigner, Hon. E. F. Noel, one of the six aspirants for the gubernator ial nomination. Senator Noel was one of the first of the sextette to propose a joint canvass and a division of time, but for various reasons'satisfactory to themselves, the other gentlemen elect ed otherwise, and so^Mr. Noel is going it strictly alone. He is spending this week in North Mississippi.—ferry County Item.__ Tfie increased railroad"rates on grain from the west will not go into effect until May 1. This is the first time in many years that the railroads have raised rates on grain at the opening of navigation. Usually there is a reduc tion in rates at that time to compete with water transportation. The in ■ c reased rates are said to be in retalia tion for the actions of the legislatures in the central west in reducing pas senger freight rates. The railroad magnates should remember that retal iation can be played by more than one side. Lands in Coahoma a The Brookhaven Leader, which has heretofore been non-committal on the candidates for governor, indicated its preference last week by saying ; ' 'The Aberdeen Weekly, that wise old sage, says : Hon. E. F. Noel is on the path to glory and renown, according to re ports,"—New Albany*(iazette. Who Is To Blame? If, as the railroad presidents and trust magnates are declaring, there is a period of business depression ahead, who is to blame for it V It must be charged to Republican management and policy, for that party has had full control of all departments of the gov ernment for the past ten years and if there is any needed legislation, or any bad laws that ought to have been re pealed or amended, there has been ample time and opportunity to attend to it. If monopolies of tranpsortation and manufacturing have been encouraged and created, until of their own ex cesses they have defeated their own prosperity, the Republican party is alone to blame. If the tariff has fostered trusts, that are gorged on the profits of dn ex ploited people, so that reaction and business depression are possible, who is to blame ï If tfie cost of living is inordinately high and workingmen are striking for higher wages, the reason is apparent and must be charged to the Republican policy of trust protection as the chief cause. If the goose has been killed, tout has laid the golden eggs, by stuffing her vviih prosperity that was only intended for trusts and corpora tions to feed on, who >s to blame ï If the fanner finds that the price of his product is low and protected trust prices are high, so that his profit i* little, if any, will he blame his own skill as a husbandman and a kindly nature that has produced good crops, or the tariff that has fostered trusts which are protected in charging in creased profits and for which the Re publican party is responsible. There is one thing certain, that any prosperity that the farmer, the bus iness man, or the workingman has en joyed, who receives no protection or benefit from tariff or other monopoly, must work out his own salvation, for no system can be contrived that will help everyone without everyone pay ing his own share or even more than his fair share. So while the heathen of Wall Street rage and the railroad magnates proph esy vain things, the much greater number of people must be satisfied with no help or protection from the Republican party who claims all the avenues of prosperity as of its own making. It behooves such not to be flustered with the croakings of the trust and corporation birds of evil omen, but to protect themselves by such political action as will abolish monopoly and install equal rights to all and special privileges to none. The supreme court of Minnesota has decided that Jim Hill can issue all the new stock of the Great Northern rail road he wants to—now—but must ask permission of the state railroad com mission in the future. Perhaps when another issue of stock would be handy the court will find another loophole for the stock watering process. We honestly believe that the race for governor lies between the Holmes county man and the Bolivar county man. Mark the prediction.—Sardis Reporter. _ Since the publication of the Harri man letter of 1905 exposing some of the corporation magnates contribu tions to the Roosevelt campaign fund, it is much easier to understand why the administration has been so liberal with the balance in the United States treasury to help out the Wall street frenzied financiers. The sock and stocking trust is after us with a raise in price of 15 per cent, while cotton is cheaper and the spin ners are receiving but little higher wages, but the sock trust is protected by the tariff tax of 30 to 50 per cent added. _ Noel will get more votes in the first irimary than any candidate in the ield. Mr. Noel is making the race without the aid of corporations or pol itical factions. He is trusting his can vass to the people. —Bay Springs News. W ;.v « «»I Î FRIEND TO FRIEND.
