§■ I'cek In state polities, for tlie retiltn of
H the governor of Alabama from Washing
ton is expected to pave the way for de
H vtlopmcnta.
Id the first place, it is said to he true
that as soon as the governor is home
A again, he will appoint a chairman of
j the Jeffei8on coufity excise commission,
| the. term of the present chairman hav
I ing expired sometime ago. in the etent
/hat the governor does not reappoint the
Jlncumbent. W. C. Agee, it is said that
J he will name either Dr. W. C. Gewin or
I John B. Rosenstihl. There are half a
\ dozen applicants for the position
j Tn the second place, the governor is
I expected to let it he known on his re
' turn whether or not there wrill be an
. extra session of tlie legislature, and
■ j whether in that session the present mcm
I * hers or the members to be elected in
1 ^November will participate. But for the
Tact that a session of the present mom
oers would necessitate special elections
to fill vacancies, it is considered certain
that they wrould be the ones commissioned
H to do tlie work in regard to the plan
I of the state to protect the Cotton produc
fj tion of the state.
1| It is known that the governor is in
■ clinpd to call an extra session. It is said.
I also, that one of the reasons why lie is
j inclined to call the present members of
H the legislature in session is that he has
|| been assured by certain of its leader*
I that its action will be confined to business
j| and not to liquor agitation. If the body
I of new members is called in session, it
9 will be almost too late, it is pointed out.
I to attend to the present need confront
I. fng the farmers, and there will be <!an
I [ ger of much agitation of subjects which
I \are said to be irrelevant.
I j The governor is expected in Alabama

I ^ated that hr will have some highly
I interesting announcements to make.

Some Inconsistencies
When Harry Jones was a member of the city council, he tried
f0n four separate and distinct occasions to over-ride the mayor’s
{ veto of the ordinance imposing a street tax of $3.00 per capita.
He failed each time, but he was persistent to the end.
This tax would have made the laboring man, who has to work
for his deaily bread, pay just as much as the man with an in
come of $1000 per month. It was peculiarly burdensome and
oppressive upon the laboring men of the district. Failure to
pay the tax rendered the delinquent subject to garnishment
jvith all the horrors of a fee bill, and also to arrest and fine,
and if it could not be paid, would have to be worked out on the
streets at not exceeding 50 cents per day. This was Harry Jones’
way of working the streets and raising revenue.
Just a short while before, Mr. Jones had voted for a resolu
tion authorizing a bond issue of $3,000,000 to erect a municipal
waterworks system. At the next meeting he voted to repeal that
'resolution. He continued as president of the city council for
three years and never again brought up the matter of a bond is
sue for waterworks.
If he had been half as persistent for municipal ownership as
he was for a street tax, he might have had better success.
Remember Walter Moose’s prediction*about the street tax:
f “You are going to choke it down us? Well, just wait until the
next election and you will go back to the mountains where you
i Jjelong.”
