Judge Truly in a splendid speech de livered at Jackson last Friday said among other things: ' 'I call upon every voter in every county in the state to see that no mem ber of the legislature, that no member of the state senate, that no candidate for governor is elected unless he will manfully and boldly and honestly commit himself in advance of the elec tion that in a fight which may come between the unjust aggressions of the public service corporations and the people of the state that he stands upon the side of the people and will battle for their rights, and that he will com mit himself in a plain and manly way to the old fashioned time-honored bed rock Democratic principle of ''equal rights to all and special privileges to none, ' ' in the rule of corporate exist ence in the state of Mississippi. " This is the very attitude that every voter inHolmes county ought to adopt. Let every candidate whether for gov ernor, state senator, or representative, be made to express himself on this point beyond any possibility of a mis understanding. The crown prince of Sweden is dead broke and deeply involved in debt. The Swedish parliament has come to his rescue by making him a present of 595,000 kroner to help him out of the hole. His father, King Oscar, and his father-in-law, the Grand Duke, of Baden, are both very wealthy, nut re fused to come across with any of the filthy lucre to help him out. A well-to-do Pennsylvania farmer, who had sent his son to Philadelphia to begin life as a clerk, wrote to the merchant in whose employ he was, asking how the boy was getting along and where he slept at nights. The merchant replied : "He sleeps in the store in the day time. I don't know where he sleeps at nights. " For the benefit of couples on their honeymoon trips, the railways in Lon don, England, have built railway car riages of the first class with compart ments containing only two seats where they can do their spooning unobserved. Heretofore, in order to indulge in that pastime, they had to pay for a compart ment of four seats, which was very ex pensive. _ The long drawn-out Thaw case will now remain quiescent until fall, when it will be re-opened, the jury failing to arrive at an agreement. This case has attracted a wide interest throughout the country, the reports of trial in the papers having a wholesome effect, as it called the attention of the people to the moral putrescence of upper ten dom, which may eventuate in a better ment of conditions. The candidates for county offices in Madison county have made an agree ment not to make a house to house canvass. It is. in our belief, the only county in which such an agreement, has been made, and will be watched with interest. It will scarcely prove feasible, as the voters generally prefer to be thoroughly acquainted with any aspirant before honoring him with their suffrage. Some candidates have much better opportunities, in their daily avocations in life, to form the ac quaintanceship of the people, and would thus have a decided advantage over those with less fortunate environ ments.

MOTER, Ssc'r * Trees The railroads, operating in Mississ ippi, it is stated, have reconsidered their purpose to contest the two-cent milage rate ordered by the Railroad Commission, and will drop the pro ceedings. This is a wise and timely decision and may have the effect of creating more amicable relations be tween the railroads and the people. The Standard Oil Company has been found guilty in a recent trial of reba ting on 1462 counts. The maximum fines aggregate #29,240,000. The pany is defendant in quite a number of states on similar charges and may eventually be forced to disgorge a por tion of its ill-gotten gains. com Protects Home Peddlers and Merchants.

Sample, of this county and have had the wholesome effect of preventing transient and irresponsible parties from swindling people to the detri ment of local merchants and peddlers. The latter are not liable to the license imposed. The latest states to pass two-cent railroad fare bills are Pennsylvania and Minnesota. The railroad mana gers say they will teat the constitu tionality of the law on the ground that the rate is unprofitable, but if that is so why do they continually ad vertise excursions at that rate and lessV if Of a Lecal Nature.
