Warren, Adams, Jackson, Hancock
and Harrison. - Indications point to
Washington as the next county in
which the battle will be waged, and
it will be a most particularly lively
and interesting one; for Greenville
has always been regarded as the wid
est open town in the state, an im
pregnable stronghold of the open
saloon. Vicksburg American.

Those who are acquainted with the
fact are bound, to see the difference
in the moral 'atmosphere in the town
of Ackerman now and three years
ago. Then the bling tigers were run
ning in full blast and it was danger
ous to get out on the streets at night.
Then the blind tigers would "walk
about even in daylight, now some are
on the farm and others are conspicu
ous for their absence. Why? Be
cause public sentiment is against
them. The conditions that, prevail in
Ackerman now can be had anywhere
if the people want it. Ackerman is
not a Paradise by any means, but it
is better by far than it has been in
the past. Chester Baptist.

Speaker E. N. Thomas is address
ing the voters in different parts of
the state this week. The press, as
well as his opponents, are finding out
at last that he is a live wire, in the
race for the office of Governor.

One factory that will work 300
hands would do more for the upbuild
ing of Greenville in two years than all
its saloons have done in the last ten
years. Again, such a factory can be
established with the money that is ex
pended yearly in the city's saloon
business. We don't believe even the
saloon men will deny this fact.
There is one thing our people -must
not lose sight of and that is if the
county does go prohibition, the li
censed saloons will run until June,
1908, and between now and that time
a bumper crop can be. made, which
will insure good times in city and
count-. Again, this delay will al
low the citizens now engaged in the 1
business to make arrangements, to
enter other lines of business so that
the city 'will have no vacant house
as some now predict.
The Times is not like vmany we
hear on t'ie streets, that if thi sa
loons -nf Greenville are closed, the
' city will soon go to the bow-wows.
The truth -'is. Greenville is going to
prosper and.- grow, saloons or no
saloons: but like others,, we signed
the petition not as a prohibitionists,
at to let the matter be, tested as 10
thcVjishes of the people of the

The Times thought, like others,
that for business reasons and the
saving of a bitter strife among our
citizens, that it would be better to
defer the election until a later day,
as the chances are that at the next
meeting of the legislature the state
will go dry; but as the meeting of
those who have the petition in charge
decided to present the petition at the
next meeting of the county board of
supervisors for their action, it has
nothing further to say, and with the
number of qualified voters who have
already signed the petition, which is
over one-third of the registered vot
ers r6f the county, the board has no
other-Alternative in the matter but
to order the election.
Hon. LeRoyPercy, of this city, has
solved the question of immigration
for the South, and by so doing, has
brought himself prominently before
the world. His plan of solution is
through the share crop system by
which the immigrant becomes a part
ner in the crop and as such receive
an equal share with the owner in its
returns. This condition removes him
from under the ban of the labor con
tract law by which they are prohib
ited! from entering the country.
Through this arrangement, the
planters of the South will now re
ceive their full share of the emigra
tion coniirg to this country and to
Washington county's able son they
are -due the thanks for its solution.
25000 iy IfUO
That it is the dut of every citizen
to support the county paper no on"
will, for the moment, question. There
are many reasons that might be given
in support of this contention. In the
first place the citizen owes it to him
self. The county paper comes as a
weekly visitor into the home bring
ing the news from every part of the
(county and from different parts of theJ
States. In this Way it becomes 1
means of education. What kind of a
citizen is it that knows nothing of
his county and' stats? What kind of
a citizen can a man make who neve-r
reads? But few people know the
struggles and the sacrifices of the
editor of the county paper. His mind
is busy day and night how best to
make his paper a success and how to
give to the people a paper that is
worth their money. There are sev
eral ways to help in the support of
your county paper. It is well enough
to pray for it, and it is "a good thing
to subscribe for it, 'but it is far better
to pay for it. Subscribe for the pa
per and pay for it, read it nad tell
your neighbors about the good thing?
in it, and occasionally speak a good
word) to the . editor who is spending
his life for the good of the county
and for the education of its citizens.

A DOG TAX
We were asked the qtiestion th'"s
week what was the city council go
ing to do with its thousands of
worthless curs that roam the street.
Our reply was, "nothing." Now, it
is not our intention to misrepresent
them in this matter, but we based it
upon the past three years, for with
laws enacted for this case, not a
single dog was placed in the pound
and but few killed.
The Times has always held that
a dog tax was the remedy, for a man
who owns a valuable dog would b-
willing to pay the tax and the worth
less curs, of which yon find from one
to four around hundreds of negro
homes in the city, that are only good
to bark. and bite, would be killed be
fore the owner would pay the tax.;
- This tax-would be a license to the
dog population of the city to howl
and bark at night.
The resignation of Hon. D. M. Mil
ler, of Hazelhurst, as circuit judgeof
the seventh judicial district, com
posed of the counties of Hinds, Ya
zoo Madison and Copiah, is expected
to reach the Governor early next
month, and there is no doubt as to
the identity of his successor. The
judgeship has been tendered to Hon:
Wiley II. Potter, of the Jackson bar,
for many years one of the leading
practitioners at the capital, and he
has signified his willingness to ac
cept. Unless- Judge Miller should
postpone his resignation until a later
date, Mr. Potter will preside over his

ed citizen, and the time is not far
