Editor Aberdkf.n Weekly: I write to ank you to permit me to make a statement in your paper rela tive to the relat ions of the Appropria tions Committee, of which Mr. Morri son is chairman, and the E'.eemosye ary Institutions Committee, of which I am chairmati. The situation was such that Ixjt h chairmen tendered their resignations, anil under proper solicitations l.th reconsidered their action and remain ed on their committees. The newspaper reporters have never dealt fairly with the true issue and principle involved as advocated bv me. and hence the irason of my desire to tie properly understood hy my people. The history of the whole matter is as follows: There is a custom pre vailing at present in both houses of the Legislature to have all bills-carrying appropriations, first to be re ferred to respective committees to which their subjects relate. These committees go intodetails, make all necessary investigations and recom mend appropriations according to t heir judgment of the necessities in t he case. Then to refer the bills to the Appropriations committee that has the right, according to precedent, to concur in or set aside entirely the fust committee's report. Thus you see one committee has the right to supervise the other; that uo action of the first committee is final; that all such committees are subordinate, a mere adjunct, to the Appropriation committee; that they are committees in name only; they have no power of their own; they cannot evn refer such bills direct to the House, but to their supervising committee. When and how this condition of affairs began no one seems to know, but we think it began four years ago. I know this: when I found it to be true I was thunder struck. The twelve years I was in the Senate and on thfse same committees no such thing existed, or 1 could have attackedit then. My'contentionsare .these: that all legislators art! on the same footing and his recommendation should have the same standing; that committees each and all have the same rights and prerogatives and should not be subordinate to another; and that only the Legislature as a body has the right to supervise the work and rec ommendations of any committee. If these inviolate rights of legislators and committees are set at variance, it would tend to produce legislative conditions that in my mind would not be for the best. If the committees are not compe tent to pass on the subjects referred to them, what is the use of having the committee, and why should the matter be referred to them at all. In this attitude the Committee is a travesty and anon entity, but if it has the dignity of a committee after it has gone into a proper investigation and gained sufficient knowledge to enable it to act intelligently, why should it be compelled to have its work supervised and re-hashed by a committee that has made no in vestigation and has no knowledge of the case in question; and if such a condition is to exist, all other com mittees are chained to a roek of im potence and simply relegates all the appropriation legislative power to the hands of one committee, and as you well know, nine out of every ten com mittee reports pass as reported, you readily see that one committee domi nates more than half the legislation of the Slate. Then, Mr. Editor, do you not readily see that the Speaker can shape the entire appropriation legislation of Mississippi as he wishes it by placing on that committee men who repre sent his views and ideas, and who will carry them out? Looking at the matter in this light, I made a light to liberate these com mittees, to untie their hands, to give to their reports and recommenda tions the same dignity as that of others, and thereby to scatter the ap propriation legislative power over as broad a field as possible. It was for the above principle that I was contending and fighting. This principle alone was the matter of contest, and there was to personal element in it; there was no bitterness or estrangement between the chair men or their committees I resigned from the committee be cause, as I saw ic, my committee bad no power, no rights or prerogatives, was a travesty and nonentity and was capable only of labor that had for its reward impotence of the rankest kind. But under strong solicitation I reconsidered mjT action, believing that I could fight more effectively as the exponent of an aggrieved com mittee than I could as an independent legislator. Respectfully, H. F. Bkoyles. ( FERTILIZERS! j Reliable, Good Brandsat Popular Prices, ...CASH OR CREDIT...

The Republican congressional con vention of the Shelby county, Ten nessee, district on Monday, was a tumultuous affair, and presented a forecast of the death struggle the negroes are now making for political existence in all the States. A negro who bad heretofore been 'prominent and influential in Republican politics of Memphis and Shelby count' had selected one of his own race for one of the delegates to the Chicago con vention, and made a rousing speech demanding his appointment. He de nounced President Roosevelt and threatened dire tilings to the white Republicans unless his race was fully recognized. In the meantime the committee on resolutions was prepar ing its work. It reported resolutions indorsing the Roosevelt administra tion and instructed the delegation for Taft for president. This brought the aforesaid negro orator and leader to his feet again, with renewed de mands for the appointment of his friend as a delegate, declaring that "the salvation of the Republican par ty in all the States was in the negro vote, and that without the negro vote Roosevelt would not be president and Taft cannot be." In response chair man Harbour read the riot act to his colored calleague-i, defying their threats, asserting that they did the party no good , and they were wel come to leave any time that suited them. The convention proceeded to appoint all white delegates, and the negroes set up a little convention of their own, and also appointed dele gates. The negroes have all the time been warned that the friendship of the Re publican party was only to catch their votes and as soon as their ballots be came unavailable or impontent, they would be cast aside. This fact is now developing in nearly every State and precinct, and this campaign will note the retirement of that race as a domi nating political factor in all quarters. Col. W. J. Bryan received a great ovation at Jackson last Saturday, where by invitation he addressed the Mississippi legislature. There was an immense gathering of people in the capitol city from all accessible direc tions and distances, and the speech is reported to have been one of the best of the many able and patriotic ad dresses that he has made during this campaign. On the previous day" be was received with unmeasured e thusiasm at Memphis where he stopp ed a few hours enroute to Jackson.

After ballotting nearly two months, the Kentucky legislature last Friday, although composed of a Democratic majority, elected ex-Governor Brad ley, the Republican caucus nominee, to the United States Senate, to suc ceed Senator James B. McCreary. Former Governor J. W. C. Beckham, who became governor by virtue of tfie assassination of Governor Goebel several years ago, was elected Sena tor by the Democratic primaries last year, and was voted for by all but four of his party throughout the con test. The four disgruntled Demo coats - two senators and two representatives-voted "scattering" ballots all the while for other members of their party, but finally went into a combination with the Republicans, and gave their candidate the election. There was great dissatisfaction ex pressed at the time of the primary election with methods employed by Beckham and his so-called "ma chine," but with the exception of the four recalcitrants the legislators were loyal to their party instructions. It is a great misfortune to lose a member of the senate at this time, especially from a Southern State, and the four Democrats who made it pos sible in this case should have made a sacrifice of personal pique or predju dice for the benefit of the party of the nation. It is also the first instance in which the primary election system has proved a failure, and to an ex tent may impair the best and most satisfactory method yet devised for selecting our officers, high and low, by direct vote of the people.

SIMPLE WASH CURES ECZEMA 1 Itching, Burning Skin Disease Routed Without Use of Inju rious Drugs. Great inventors often have U-en praised" for surrendering the secret. of their discoveries. Practically the same thing happened in the medical world in the case of Dr. Decatur 1). Dennis, the ommineiit skin special ist of Chicago. Dr. Dennis, in his own oilice practice, discovered that pure vege table oil of wintergreen, properly mixed with other simple remedies was practically a sure specific for Eczema, psoriasis, barber's itch, salt rheum, ami other itching skin diseases. But the oil of wintergreen alone was found ineffective. It re quired other mild ingredients su.h as glycerine thymol compounded with wintergreen to produce the real eczema cure. This compounded D. D.

To 1(X) of the leading Democrats of the United States the World has submitted the following question: "What is the lest principle and what is the best policy to give the Democratic Party new life? Among the letters in answer to the World's question is the follow ing: "To the Editor of the World: The U'st principle is for the party to stand for the fundamental prin ciple of the Democratic Government, equal rights, protection, opportunity and justice to all people of all classes and conditions in life in the United States. "The liest policy is a united, unselfish effort on the part of all members of the Party to promote this principle. Whenever a special privilege is given to one man or class of men, it is necessarily taking from another without any consideration, and is a step, however short, in the direction of the destruction of the sovereign government of a free peo pie. "The platform of the Democratic Party ought to declare for the re form of the tariff", for the reform of currency, the reform of the trans portation facilities, the punishment of real offenders, instead of making vicarious sufferers ; the recognition of the rights reserved to the States, the reduction of the standing army and the return of the purest princi ples of Democratic government. "These princples are sound and true, and ought to summon the sup port of the electorate of the United States, but whether they do or not, there should le no effort to make a platform for the catching of votes without regard to soundness.

Malaria is due to impurities and poisons in the blood. Instead of being rich, strong and healthy, the circulation has become infected with germs of disease which destroy the rich, red corpuscles that furnish nourishment and strength to the body, and reduced this vital fluid to such a weak, watery condition that it is no longer able to keep the svsteni in health, or ward off the countless diseases and disorders that asail it. The loss of these red corpuscles takes the color and glow of health from the cheek, and we see pale, sallow faces and washed out. chalkv complexions among the first yiuJioius in .i.n.tiia. nut .MaiAria is a general systemic disease, and as, the blood becomes more heavily loaded with its genus we have more serious and complicated symptoms; the impure blood having its effect on all parts! of the body. The appetite fails, digestion is weakened, chills and slight! fever are frequent, and the sufferer loses energv and ambition because of a! constant tired-out and "no account " feeling. The lack of necessary nour ishment and healthful qualities in tue blood causes boils and abscesses, skin affections, and in some cases sores and ulcers to break out. and sometimes the patient is prostrated with a spell of malarial fever which may leave his health permanently impaired. To cure Malaria both .1 blood purifier and tonic are necessary, in order to remove the cause ami at the same time build up the system from its weakened ami run-down condition. S. S. S. is the medicine best fitted for this work. It is the most perfect of all bhxxl purifiers, and the purely vegetable ingredients of which it is composed make it the greatest and safest of all tonics. S. S. S. goes down into the circulation and removes every trace of impurity or poison, and at the same time gives to the blood the health sustaining qual ities it needs. It cures Malaria thoroughly and permanently because it removes the germs and poisons which produce the disease, and while doing this tones up and strengthens every pait of the system. When S. S. S. has cleansed the blood the symptoms pass away, the healthy color returns to the complexion, the old tired, depressed feeling is gone, and the entite health is renewed.
