A letter to the Post from an es teemed friend at Sturgis, Bays that Maj. Vardaman delivered a speech in that town last Saturday to a very large audience, and that, as usual, he 'ketohed 'em." Our correspondent says that Varda man will carry Oktibbeha county, and that Winston county will also be in the Vardaman column. Vicksburg Post. Are Expounders ol True Democracy. The bitter and vile attacks made against Senator Money and Major Vardaman by Republican scribblers and Federal office holders is rallying the great - bulk of the Democratic voters to the standards of these two gifted expounders of true .Democracy. The support of that same element killed the candidacy of Fox in a. mnnth'R time and it is colng to bury Longino and Critz so deep that they oan never be resurrected. sea ioasi Beacon. Why Vardaman Will be Elected. Thn nnininn is becoming general in Mississippi now in spite of all the mud and money that lias been brougni into use in the governor's race Major Vardaman will be an easy winner. Miaaisaitmians love a man who is bold enough to speak his convictions out and openly and who is too lair a iw underhanded means to gain vantage over an opponent. It is these qualities that nave mauo ., ido after careful deliberation that onr State does not need and could not have a better man in the gover nr. nhair than the Leflore states man.

This will not be denied by any seek er after the facts. And the county is I believe, quite as safe for Major Vardaman for govenor, oertain news papers to the contrary notwithstand ing. Sunflower people believe there is a race issue, and that men who say there isn't do not fit the duties of the hour. ' Sunflower. Bond, July 4, 1903. The Cotton Pickers. Next Sunday the "Cotton Pickers" of this oity. the best known and most famous Elk organization in the South, will leave in their special sleeper, "The Dixie," for Baltimo. to attend the great reunion of Elks to be held in that city commencing Tuesday, the 21"t. The organization this year, will be larger than ever and will carry more uniqub souvemers of the fair South land they represent than ever before. In the organization this year will be associated the names of such Elks as Tilford, Hutsell, Goldman, New man, Bergman, Sylverstein, and a number of others whose individual ities have heped to make the "Cotton Pickers" famous. With their handsome and anique uniforms and their star spangle ban ner they will no doubt win the prize in the parade contest', but shoud they not, Baltimore and all her visitors will know that they have been there and will remember the "Cotton" Pickers" for a long time to come. C. M. Ham, the Furniture Man. Mr .0. M. Ham, one of the largest furniture dealers in the South, and a business man of Greenville that the oity is proud of, left on last Tuesday for" the great furniture markets of the East and North, including several cities in Indiana and Grand Rapids, Mich. He will remain in Grand Rapids for a few days and then go to Chicago to attend the great furniture exhibition now on in that city. Being a full-fledged "Bill," and a member of the Cotton Pickers, No. 148, B. P. n w nf Orennville. ne will meei the tho ,roat Elks' convention, returning homi about the 1st of August. We hope Charlie can briue- back a furn iture factory with him as he will need one to supply his trade if it con tinues to increase next year like it has this year. A Called Meeting.

Lee County for Yardaman- Speclal to The Commercial: Sha nnon, Miss., July 7. If there was jsbaduw of a doubt Id anyon's mind that Vardaman wouldn6t 'carry. Lee county Jit was certainly dispelled Tiere tonight. Every voter was preseDt,,and he was cheered to the echo. His speech was one that none have ever heard Uie eqnal of. It is Vardaman solid through thlB entire section. The Merchants & Planters Bank, which has enjoyed a prosperous busi ness in this city for many years, has issued a statement of its financial condition in this issne of The Times. As usual the bank makes a very oredtiable showing. Dr. J. S.Walker, the president is one of the foremost financial men of the city, and being at the head of this reputable institu tion lends strength and honor to it. Mr. Will Starling, cashier, is one of the most trustworthy young men in Greenville. Courteous and obliging, he makes the bank a pleasant place to transact business. The committee of the Business Lea gue on street paving met the connoil committee Tuesday night and took up the matter of paving our streets, and unanimously decided to send Engineer Allen to Monroe, La.,' Pine Bluff, Arkansas, New Oreans and Mem his to mike an inspection of the streets and their making in these various cities.

A few Press Remarks on V.'.s Cendidacy,; : Tried and True. , Senator Money, tried , and true, during his many years' service in Washington, has never been guilty'of hob-nobbing with the Republicans. Gloster Record. No Idle Bout. Senator H. D. Money, oandidate for releotion to the United States senate, will be an easy winner at the Augnet primary. This is the houoHt opinion of tha best posted men of the State. This is no idle boast to catch votes for the candidate of our choice, Democrat-Star. ' ' Ablot Debater In tha American Senate. In introducing Senator Money to a Rankin county audience one day last week, Senator A. J. McLanrin, of Mississippi, said."

" . ; ; - And this is the statesman whom the Jackson clique is striving to re place with a novice Ex, Tha Price ol longy'a Cammlaiion. : Longino's manipulation of the ap pointive power for the benefit of his senatorial candidacy is patent to his own supporters, many of whom have the graoe to be ashamed of it. The number of bis appointees appearing on his' campaign committee would seem to indicate that pledge of sup port was' the usual prioe of a com misaion under Longino.

This banking institution is in its infancy but it enjoys a business that is prospering it and making it one of the popular banking houses in the Delta.

Tha people of Biloxi have not the inclination nor oan they afford to be ungrateful. Senator Money will speak here tonight at the city hall and he should, and no doubt will, be accord ed a stirring welcome and a large audience. ,Oor people will remem ber that it was largely due to Senator Money's efforts that the amount ap propriated by tha government for the Federal building, to be erected here, was increased from 75.000 to f 160,000.

The aotive part taken in Longino's candidaoy for senator by some of the judges and chancellors Of this State is draeeinu the bench down into tbe lowest depths of political corruption. One judge is named as a manager of the governor's .campaign committee, and several others are actively at work endeavoring to deliver the votes at the polls for Longino.. This locks very much as if these judges and chancellors were paying back the price of their appointments. , It Is up to the people now to say whether thev will approve or condemn such trading.

The people knew that for weeks Senator Money has spoken almost daily in arious parts of the State to large udiences, and yet scarcely a men tion of it has been made in any of the city daily papers that depend largely on Mississippi for support. At the same time these daily papers have almost exhausted thier vocabu laries (no -great task it is true) in their efforts to exploit the perfervid rhetoric of our sophomore "guberna torial" candidate for the senate; and to disseminate the information given out bv him. Whether this info'- mation ia ' natural or acquired" yet a disputed question.
