the following
rccteu pc-rsonailv to the business
n.en and property owners on Main
vrett from Poplar to Walnut streets,
it is sincerely hoped that the people
of the entire city will take the mat
!i r personally to themselves, and aid
in the work of beautifying rile city.
Greenville is rightly termed the
"Cjueen City of the Delta." but there
i.- a fear that the cities of Greenwood
and Yaz;." City may wrest this honor
a" J claim from tis if we, the people,
are not vigilant and watchf -.1 in the
v. ork of making our city the fairest
io the Delta.
, n:tt the I niws is
verv uesirotts
, to See accomplished is the beautifv-l
mg of. Main street. The granolithic
waiks have been completed, and the
curbing a!! along the block on either
s-'de'has been levelled. This makes
one nf the best opportunities for the
planting of thrifty shrubs, flowers' or
grass in this space, between the walks
and tluv pavement. The cost of such
an improvement is comparatively
nothing, " and the time consumed in
taking care of these garden - spots
will more than repay in enhancing
t?e appearance of the street. ;
There are very' important reasons
fir this improvement. The merchants
-and business men along this block
owe it to themselves and the people
to make their premises as clean and
neat as possible. While doing this
it will take but little more time and
trouble to make this block . blossom
like a rose. It will not only be com
mented oh by the traveling public
passing ito and from the depots to
the hotel, but will enhance the value
of the street, as a business center.
This last statement - may be scoffed
at bv some, but it is undeniably a
fact. Beautify this block, repaint
your house white, as has been done
by Sommer Brothers, add a 'gener
ous touch of nature to the "appearance
and it will be found that the people
of the city and stangers will take- a
delight and pleasure in promenading
along either side of the street. This
is a time to recover much".. of the old
time prestige of Main'street, and we
csil upon the business men of this
street to rally to the call. " l:
Mr. L. P. - Sommers, of " Sommer
Brothers" has. set the pace, and the

Those who attended the meeting
of planters and citizens at the court
house last Monday were struck by
the fairness, honesty and good feel
ing of all who took part in the dis
cussion and settlement of the drain
age question- the most important
question that has been before the
county for years.
It is in such meetings as this one
where passion, prejudice and bitter
ness are, set aside and the question
at issue taken up and discussed in a
straight-forward and able manner;
where every man s individual opin
ions are regarded and weighed by
all present and decision rendered
after a full and free discussion of all
points at issue, and the interests of
the people considered, that a btate
or community can prosper or ad
The tinal decision of the meeting
ordering a survey made was the
proper step to make, and on its show
ing then, the district could determine
the future course to take.
From the daily press we see the
drainage movement of the swamp
lands is beinsr taken up bv the land
owners of Missouri, Texas, Arkan
sas and other States, and already
their different representatives in Con
eress are trvinsr to secure for them
government aid in the work.
Now that the movement is startec
in this county, and knowing the
termination and ability or the sue
cesstul men who own these lands to
be drained, we believe they will never
stop should the engineer's report
show the task can be carried out at
a reasonable sum until this vast tract
of timber is brought into the market, 1
the rich lands into cultivation, and
both assist in producing the wealth
and bearing the county's taxation.

The passage of the rate bill in the
Senate recently ended what is agreed
to have been the greatest debate
known in Washington for many a
'number of years. No greater display
this, of skill, learning and ability is recall-
eu py me naouuai students 01 legis
lation who in the capital form a class.
Neither has any legislation called
for greater exercise of political prow
ess. The bill has been as ably con
tested by the wire-pullers as it has
been by the debaters.
In no debate in recent years has
the personal feature figured so large
ly. The intensity of the struggle
personified the various issues in va
rious men. From the beginning these
personalities have been steadily grow
ing larger, till all other personalities
in the Senate have been pale and
meaningless beside them. The most
notable among them have been Bai
ley, Tillman, Spooner, Aldrich, Knox,
Foraker, Allison, La Follette, Long,
Dolliver and, of course, the Presi
dent himself.
In focussing the eyes of the coun
try on the intellectuality of the Sen
ate and putting an end. at least for
the time, to the senile talk about that
body's '"decay" since the days of Sum
ner, the rate bill, in the opinion ot
observers in Washington, has accom
plished something not set down on
the cards, something possibly of per
manent value to the country. Vet
now that the smoke is gone, the gen
eral verdict is that nearly everybody
in the front of the tight has paid a
heavy price for it in the decrease of
his own reputation, that only two
men have come out of it with in
creased reputation. Senators Bailey

The claim department of the f. C.
R. R. needs investigating. We can
not say who is responsible for the
gross carelessness of this department,
but who ever is should be removed
and a man of business ability placed
in charge. Last November we hao
a shimnent
of freight burned tin in a
n ur
it Merigohl. Miss., and it was
months before we srot a settle
ment. In this same car there was
another shipment of a man who was
working in our office, amounting to
fifty-one dollars. He made out" his
c!: :u a,-.; wa'Ud for the money, but
not coming he went to Vicksburg
ami asked that it be forwarded there.
Not receiving it by March, and ex
pecting to leave Vicksburg. he wrote
and asked us to see to it for him.
We called upon Mr.'Davis, the agent,
and stated the request, and he wired
Mr. . Kirk-land the number of claim
and request for its payment, but still
no check came. We continued to call
upon Mr. Davis daily and weekly , to
urge, payment of the claim, which he
did. "and w hose -. kindness and . assist
ance to us in the matter we truly
appreciate; but after six months we
received a voucher to sign as , to
its not being received. This was done
and returned at once, and the money
should have been sent us by the fol
lowing week, but still from careless
ness, neglect or a desire to force our
friend to pay tone-third for-i the -services
of an attorney to get the claim,
up to this hour,, we have not yet re

recent failure of the Misssis
stnni Legislature to enact a law ic-
straining the employment ot enn
0--- - . . . .
dren with unmatured minds and un
developed physical strength, was a
blot upon the records of that august
bodv. and it is to be hoped that the
efforts of the ' C 1. U. and tne
Kine's Daughters to create a univer
sal opinion in favor of protecting the
young mind from drudgery of mill
life, where the body is drained of all
attributes that should .accompany it
to manhood. When one stops to
think of the 1,752,187 children admit
tedly employed in the United States
and the many subterfuges practiced
to evade the laws viz., a child of ten
or eleven years gets a certificate,
taken out in her name by an older
sister, perhaps, in which she is de
scribed as fifteen years of age. She
needs only to work a year to be
classed as an adult over sixteen years
of age, so no one knows the full
strength of army of child slaves, but
surely two millions or more little
ones that are daily selling, not only
their labor, but their life's blood as
well, to a merciless employer for a
mere pittance; and the situation is
appalling, and we are not true to our
instincts of higher woman and man
hood if we fail to rise in our might
and petition our Legislatures for de
cisive action. There are no limits to
child slavery, and it is an outrage
on humanity, a traversity on justice,
to employ a girl of tender years in a
sweat shop, mill or factory, robbing
them of all opportunity of education,
of morality and of refinement, and
when they outlive usefulness to turn
them out on the world totally unfit
morally or physically to fill the duties
of motherhood. Deprived of all
chance of becoming men and women
as God intended, they are taken at
a time when their souls are being
born and submitted to a life that has
only one ending, the destruction ot
their souls, a far worse fate than
death itself.
If you do not realize what the ex
isting conditions means to the future
generation, I say to you, "Go, you
who waste the rich opportunities that
life extends to you; go. and study
the faces of those toilers, as daily
they leave the prisons in which they
were confined for the last twelve
hours; see their pallid faces and look
if you can into their lungs and see
the poisonous dust, saturated and
clogged with blood, that they inhale
all day long. It is true that many
of them suffer from a horrible form
of Dropsy, and ten per cent, of them
contract consumption in the first five
years' of employment.
Interest yourself further; follow;
them to their homes, and as they en
deavor to learn something of life out
side the mill, study them in the con
flict between fatigue and interest, be
tween weariness and longing for
knowledge, who. as the night wears
on. drops one after the other to sleep,
overcome after twelve hours of toil,
but determined nevertheless to stand
fast by the one chance given them.
They are paid-in amounts varying
from two to three dollars per week
of sixty-live to seventy hours, and I
wonder that the clothes we wear do
not cry out to us. "We cost the joy
that was jnjjiother's eyes, the bloom
that was upon children's cheeks; we
have cost all the beauty and sanctity
of motherhood, all the hope and glory
of chilklhood. Could you but see it,
there is a bitter tear woven into
every thread of the fabrics of which
they are made." You should cry as
did the poet. Hood "Oh, God, that
bread should be so dear and flesh and
blood so cheap."
And yet the Mississippi Legisla
ture says '"the time is not now op
portune; we have no cotton .mills;
hence we need no such law.'' Efforts
are energetically being made to bring
factories and mills to Greenville, and
if successful we will have a practical
demonstration of what "child slavery"
means. The writer has seen the fruits
of the the child labor law- and com
pulsory education too often not to
realize the need of both here, and
would like to see the next Legisla
ture demonstrate that they stand for
morality first, last and all the time.
I heartilv commend the action of
the W, C.'T. U. and King's Daugh
ter's to provide for and against an
evil of great magnitude that daily
confronts us, and 1 wish them he-arty
success in their noble efforts.

spect for. the Constitution and the
laws of the State bv its people, and
especially by its public officers, and
for an enforcement of the criminal
law to that extent that human life
will not be so cheap in our State,
but that the law-abiding citizen may
be safe in the enjoyment of his life,
liberty and property, and m the pur
suit of happiness, and so that every
man or corporation, regardless of
wealth or influence, will have a pro
found respect for the law, and that
every citizen, however humblewill
feel its protecting arm.
I am unalterably opposed to the
brazen and demoralizing institutions
and dens of vice sDrineing up and
becoming established in our State
known as bucket shops, tor I re
gard them -as the most dangerous
and corrupting influence now operat

Shrewd and cunning devices invented
by the smart and unscrupulous, get
rich-quick faicirs of the East, make it

1 am opposed to tne growing cx
travagance of the day and to all reck
less or needless expenditures of the
state s money, and am in tavor ot
close economy in the management, of
all the State's affairs.
I am in favor of the passage and
enforcement of such laws as will pre
vent mushroom and insolvent bank
ing institutions springing up over the
State and doing business without any
paid-in capial stock, as it entails loss
and frequently even financial ruin
upon depositors, and further tends
to injure solvent banking institutions.
1 favor a strict State and National
supervision of common carriers and
the fixing of their rates by a commis
sion, as 1 believe this to be especially
necessary, not only in the interest
of the common people of the Slat?,
but of every shipper and manufact
urer, including the large lumber in
dustry of our State.
I am in favor of rcquiringg all pub
lic service corporations doing bus;
ness in the State to become domes
ticated or, in other words, to be
come amenable to the laws and courts
of the State,, as they receive and share
with us the protection of our laws.
I contend t!rat it is inequitable and
unjust to allow them to enjoy that
protection, and yet, in every impor
tant controversy with the citizens 0
the State., to allow them to refuse
to submit to the law as administered
in our State courts and to drag the
citizen in the Federal courts for a
settlement of the differences, where
it is both inconvenient and expensive
to the citizen, '-' j
I am in favor of improving the
present primary .election, daws, so- as
to place directly and securely in the.
hands of the white people of the
State 'the power to choose their offi

affairs of the State, is kept under close
and constant watch by the people,
soon the ' classes-will use the machin
ery -of government to oppress the

in times of great prosperity.
At a time like tbis, when the three

things are but a part of the testimony
that the daily oaoers brine us of the
great proportions ami grave serious
ness which control governments by
aggregate wealth and corporate pow

like this, when there is an organized
effort being made to capture control
01 tne macninerv ot our state gov
ernment, of every State srovernment
in the Union, and in fact of the Fed
eral Government itself, by electing
to office neoole who are more inter
ested in private business than in the
public welfare.
While 1 appreciate the statement
1 am about to make will be used
against me, I believe it is the trutl
and right, and I make it advisedly
not m a spirit of hostility to any le
gitimate interest, but deeply impress
ed with its profound significance t
republican institutions and its ult:
mate innuence upon all classes ot out
citizensnip ri assert ttiat'the gravest
danger menacing republican institu
tions of today is the overbalancing
control of State and National legis
iatures Dy tne wealth and power 01
public service corporations.
In our State, where the executive
branch of the government carries
with it the appointment of the entire
judiciary, it is especially important
that the people elect a Governor who
has stood and will ever stand in
every controversy as an uncompro
mising friend of the common people.
Seeing how easy it would be by se
curing control of the executive branch
of our government to secure control
thereby of the appointment of -the
entire judiciary of the State, I ear
nestly favor and advocate an elective
I favor the passage of such laws
as will protect the servants and em
ployes of public service corporations
against being blacklisted or otherwise
mistreated by corporate power and
greed; and such as will give to them
ample, speedy and convenient remedy,
for recovery for all injuries received
or on account of defective machinery
ways, means or appliances, and when
death results from such injury, then
to their wives and children, and it
they have neither wife nor child, then
to their heirs-at-law.
In sharp contrast with the material
greed and avarice of the age in which
we live, I believe it to be the high
and solemn duty of the State to look
well after the few remaining heroes
of the Lost Cause and their widows.
Only a few more years and the last

of time-serving politicians to make
political capital or to foster their

child-labor laws and the enforcement
of them as will prevent the overwork

children, and am in favor of raising
the age of consent from the disgrace

I cannot reasonably expect to re

political bosses will not be able to
find anything in my past life or offi

them to believe that I could be in

those employed to demand from the
State for their " masters something
more than exact and even-handed jus

says there are at fewest three drug
stores in the neighborhood where this
most horrible of all drugs is freely
sold to all customers, in spite of the
stringent ordinance against it.
Cigarettes, whisky, morphine all
these are destructive to body, mind

compared with cocoaine. This terri

whisky drinker and cigarette smoker
may drag out a miserable existence
for many years, and the morphine
slave may live long. Cocaine eats
away the brain in even a shorter
time, and while morphine makes men
sleepy and ? feeble, ? cocaine fills their
