A conference of Mississippi bottlers
was held in Jackson Tuesday, the pur
pose of which was to discuss the phase
of the privilege tax law passed by the
legislature at its last session, greatly
increasing the tax on bottlers, and es
pecially those putting up Coca-Cola.
Municipalities will be asked to not col
lect taxes on this class of business, since
it is claimed that the state tax and the

In many sections negro preachers are
reported to have taken up large collec
tions among the ignorant members of
their flocks, on tbs pretext that the
money was to be given to “Mr. Halley”
as a sort of piacation to prevent the
comet from striking the earth, and oth
er equally absurd grounds. The money
is said to have come in rather freely,and
since there is no indication that the
earth has been hit very hard, doubtless
the donors arc satified with the invest
vestraent. N

early freeze, but that good prices more

PETITION FOR PARDON.
To the Honorable. E. F. Noel:—
We, your petitioners would respectfully pe
tition you to pardon Willie Wallace for the fol
lowing reasons;
1— That when Willie Wallace was convicted he
was but a boy of 14 years of age. That he al
ways bore a good reputation and never been in
trouble before.
2 That the district attorney had offered to his
attorney a compromise of an attempt, which
compromise offer was never submitted to said
Wallace, who would have accepted said offer.
3 That he was convicted six years ago and
had he accepted the offer made to his attorney
he would now be out of the penitentiary.
4 Considering the age of said Wallace, his
general reputation before and after his convic
tion, we believe that he has suffered enough for
his crime and would ask that you pardon the
said Willie Wallace. Respectfully submitted.
