Not many of .our people realize, we suspect,

Senator Alcorn of Miasienippi, whose factional
quarrel with Governor Arnett makes hin a very
questionable witness as to affairs in that Btate,
is widely quoted as testifying to a condition very
different from that which Senator Morton says
an investigation will disclose. We find, howoy
