Lawrence makes Answer * e c n __ DkccaII'c to Some of liov. Kusse Statements Which Recently Appeared in the Newspapers. A. & M. College Matters Discussed __ _ On September 18, O. F. Lawrence, Editor of this paper, gave out the srtatement which follows to the press of Mississippi, relative to the A. & M. College. The statement appearedjhe in the Commercial Appeal of the 19, and has also been in the columns of other daily papers: To the People of Mississippi: On September 9, there appeared in the public press a statement from Gov Lee M Russell relative to the finances of the A. & M. College in which my name was mentioned. The Govenro hinted at a great deal more than he said. I have waited until now to o-ive the matter any attention because° I thought perhaps he would wade out into still deeper water and for the further reason that for,lie some days preceeding his statement,, he had been credited in the daily press «eriously thinking about calling an extra session of the Legislature to < onsider conditions at the A. & M. Colleo-e If "that part of the Governor's . ic tn he acceDted as being unfettered by fiction wherein he said* wu-i i nn Hesire to criticise While I hav f d ' s ' r * J P ereon " "iL me to State and responsi ^ management of to the public tha h w the affairs of the instjtution show the grossest "^hg^nce I have ever, observed in my ; p xce ii encv must be. admitted1 for his lapse" of S memory^ Z'V ttTlZSe Hospital scandal at Jackson under the administration of the then Superin tendent, Dr. Butler, wherein . ' shown not only filching and graft but • an o 0rts of lechery and licentiousness V whiS were shocking to every sense nf def enev and a source of humilia tion to the Y people of the State. When an effort was made in the Legislature! to investigate Dr. Butler's manage as <1 anv were i ment of the Insane Hospital, Gov. Russell, then Lt.-Governor, was among i those who did all they could to shield i Butler and to prevent an investi | gation. It was understood that he I was aihong those who complained, that Speaker Conner would not listen j to counsel when he was naming the ! investigating committee. The . vestigation w*as had in spite of ob | jectors and the public knows the re su ^* in I Why he Governor so quickly chang. ed his mind about calling the Legis j j a ^ ure together and why he did not ; a t first realize the expense of a ses I s j on G f the law-making body and that j the matter, even were it so grave as sought to have the public believe, could not wait over until the next ses s ion, of course he alone knows, the Governor feared that the lawmak. ers might nose into the Goldsby par don and to what some believe is a par don producing cabal. Possibly, too, the Governor thought he might be called to account for pardoning, in open vio lation of a plain provision of the State Constitution, Senator Wood of Gulfport, who was shown to have used while County Superintendent of pub education about $5000.00 of the money that should have been expend ed for the school children of Harn son County. An investigation of the Wood pardon might also have prompt ed the curious minded to enquire 'about the Senator's effrontery in coming to Jackson almost immediately after his guilt was established as a [representative of a book company that was trying to persuade the Text Book Commission to adopt its book. It will be recalled that while Secre. tary Powell is charged with carrying his own checks as cash to the amount ^ hundred dolla n0 graft jg ^ . g not even hinted that any person either directly or in dirw^y to the beneficiary of any funds or moneys at the A. * M. Col ie £e tees for nearly three years. Powell was elected secretary Of the A. & M. College by the board of trustees a majority of whom are Gov. Russell's political friends. Gov. Rus , (Continued on page Ei*ht) I am not divulging any secret when I state ithat there are those who think that Gov. Russell's political friends have been in control of the board of trus Mr. RHODA ROYAL'S BIG CIRCUS COMING. When the circus comes to town it creates a "powerful" lot of excite ment, as they say down south, and the aforesaid excitement commence for the small boy and other little folks about the time the first car contain ing the young men who post works of art upon the bill boards, arrives. The circus is coming!" is the delight ed shout of the small urchin, as he gazes upon the big bills that announce the date of the great canvas enter tainment, which is to be in Grenada on Wednesday, Oct. 6, As' time flits on apac* 1 , and circus day draws near, the enthusiasm of the small boy is shared by his elders, and when the circus comes, his father and mother, and sisters and cousins and aunts, eleven or seven of them, will all go just to take that small boy to the circus. They may, however, be excused when it is considered that the Rhoda Royal Big Railroad Show is coming with an aggregation of ring attractions and great zoological' col- lection from the jungles- and forests of five continents. This, is a large three-ring circus, a ihonster menag- erie, which, by the way, is entirely distinct and separate from the wild beast show, which consists of all kinds of savage brutes, exhibited in start- ling performance in a huge steel- barred circular cage, the same as seen in European capitals, New York and. Chicago, at the Atlanta Exhibition. There will be a grand street parade, and the ter.t will be pitched at the Ball Park. -:-o- KOZY KORNER KAFE OPENS.
