A Hot Battle Is Promised In Missis sippi For Next Year Press of the State in a ITaJority Opposes Mat uto ry Prohibition. Since the call was issued for a prohi bition mass convention to assemble at Jackson on the 17th of February the press of Mississippi has commenced to express itself in outspoken terras on V o subject, and a strong sentiment is being njanifested against statutory prohibi soo, _ j Several of lb' Ica'.l.ng oapr sot th< are strenuous advocates of an ab prohibition (aw, and arc demand ing the ift'SOftibn of the subject as the le^din(f\Wftuo/in the State campaign 'nest.yenr.'lbut a jarge majority of the papers, os indicated by their editorials this week, arc opposed to any change of the exi -sting local option laws or favor the establishment of the dispensary Sys tem. “Prohibition does not prohibit,” is the general cry that is being set up all over Mississippi, and among the politi citana a deligent effort is being made to prevent the issue from being nr le in the State campaign. On the otnor hand, the prohibitionists are unusually active and declare that no man shall bo elected to the Legislature of a State office who does not support their cause. The Me thodist and Baptist churches sve joining hands with the W. C. T. U. and it looks very much like the church and politics will have a lively mix-up next year. Although the campaign is not as well degnod, it is apparent on the sur face that the instrument the antl-prohi bltionists will use to defeat their oppo nents is the proposed dispensary system, and the fight will be the most bitter that has been waged since 1887, when the State declared for local option and the existing law was drafted and placed on the statute books by the Legislature of the following year. A mere handful of men, not over a dozen in number, by shrewd work at the last legislative session, prevented the passage of a statutory prohibition law, but this time the saloon element will not trust to legislative manipulation. The fight will be carried into each county by friend and foe of liquor. This issue is to be made direct on instructions to the legislator. The movement is on foot to have printed on the official ballots, “For Statutory Prohibition” and “Against Statutory Prohibition” and the anti saloonist will insist that this course be followed. The blind tiger element, which is quite largo, if not very respectable, is expect ed to be found silently working with the prohibition element, as it has afways done in the past, for the blind tiger man realizes that the more stringent the pro hibition laws are made the better oppor tunity he has to ply his vocation. Temperance orators and anii-temper ance orators will bo imported in the State, and the campaign moans the ox nenditure of thousands Of do'la ,- s. As pirants for public offices, regardless of tiiolr personal views on the subject, real ize that the prohibi'ion campaign* will be unpleasant music to face, anl they are decidedly reluctant to declare their sen timent tmtil they me fo!"ed to do so. The State campaign, aside from the' prohibition fcai re, p omisesto be one of the most spilled for many years, but with the injection of this issue, and an absolute primary election law, the bit terness will be increased ten-fold, and the aspirants to public place will hove to wait'/ to “harmony jangling out of tune.” The issue must bo fatted and each and every candidate must announce himsejf on one side or the other, for neither of the opposing forces will al low a neutral ground.

HISS. AND LA. GOVS. TO MEET IN N. 0. HON. With the Respective Oyster Commie, slons ol Both Mates—Meeting Call ed at the Suggestion of Governor Longlno, Who is a Friend to the Oystermen. On next Monday, the 16th, instant, a conference between the Oyster Com mission of Louisiana and Mississippi will bo held u New Orleans, at the re quest of Governor Longino.

This fact was recognized by the United Slates Government in their sur vey of 18-10, and in the swamp laud act of 185d, when these lands worn marked down by Louisiana as her properly and approved by the United States Govern ment. The Mississippi oystermen were greet ed the right to fish oysters in Isle of Pete and Grand Pass only, in a spirit of com promise. Mr. John Dymond, Jr., of the Louis iana Commission, stated that the con ference was heingfheld purely on request of the Governor of Mississippi. The members of the Louisiana Commission are very firm in their opinion. They have never figured to make inerensed concessions, and what will lie the out come of the approaching conference is a matter which only circumstances can de velop. The Louisiana Commission is always anxious to listen to any argument that Mississippi wishes to make. Governor Heard will also lie present at the meeting and Oovemo Ivonginor will also be pres ent with the members of the Mississip pi Commission. Death of b. h. Jordy.
