Miss Mattie Plunkett, present State Librarian, has been making a partial ,our of the Southern portion of the State recently in the interest of her candidacy for re-appointment by the incoming Legislature next January. On the occasion of this visit, as on other occasions, the press has been say ing complimentary things about Miss Plunkett, Of the number of newspaper mentions we herewith reproduce two each one from opposite sides of this portion of the State. The Pascagoula Chronicle says: Miss Mattie Plunkett, of Jackson, Miss., formerly of Leake county, present State Librarian, was a visitor to our city Saturday last in the interest of her candidacy for re-election to the office. Miss Plunkett is one of the State’s most cultured ladies and has received universal indorsement. This position requires a person of more than ordinary experience and learning, and Miss Plunkett, because of her long service, is well equipped for the position. The Poplarville Free Press says: Miss Mattie Plunkett, State Librarian, was a visitor here Friday in the in terest of her candidacy to succeed her self. Miss Plunkett has held the position about twelve years, and has proven to be very efficient in the discharge of her duties. She is well known throughout the State, is a pleasant conversationalist and is making a can vass of the State preparatory for the fight before the Legislature against several opponents. Miss Plunkett has been received everywhere with uniform consideration in regard to her candidacy, and the Legislators of the different counties already visited have given her such encouragement as to make her success a foregone conclusion. The position calls for especial ability and qualifica tions, all of which the lady is fully equipped to carry out, and by reason of her experience, in addition to her ability, these give her a start so far ahead in the race that it looks to an “onlooker in Venice” that “there ain’t goin’ to be any second”. Dillards vs. S. S. C. In their first game since the school session began the newly-organized first nine of the St. Stanislaus College went down in defeat before the fast Dillard team of this city on the first of the week. The good team work of the Dil- ! lards, their hard hitting in the third and seventh innings, and the inability of the Collegians to get more than two safe bingles from Luc, are the principal factors in having the score appear 9to 2in favor of the Bay St. Louisans at the end of the ninth. The game was an interesting one from beginning to end, but it was noted that the college boys did not work to gether as did their opponents, but it must be considered that this is the first game they have played together, and, no doubt, after a few games more, they will make a different showing; for there is plenty of good material, a commodity essential to success, among the boys this session. Avery noteworthy and pleasing feature of the game was the absence of unnecessary delays and wrangling. The features of the game were: the pitching of Luc, who struck out twelve batters, walked none and allowed only two bits, and the hard hitting of Tom Monti, who got two 2-baggers and two singles out of four times at bat. Sum mers, in center field, made a pretty catch of a line-drive by Toups in the fifth inning. The family of Jacob Heitzmann re cently sold their property in this city and left on Wednesday for Gulfport, where they will reside in the future. REAL ESTATE TRANSFERS-CITY AND COUNTY—FOR THE WEEK.

No. 36 WILL MISSISSIPPI GO BACK TO THE OPEN SALOON? -Tj 0 1 Movement Is Said to Be on Foot to Repeal State- Wide Prohibition Law-- To Come Up at the Next Meeting of Legislature-- Antis Expect Defeat in the Legislature, But Will Ask for Vote of People. It is learned on good authority that a movement is being quietly placed on foot to start an agitation for the repeal of the state-wide prohibition law at the approaching session of the legislature. Those who are in a position to give details of the movement decline to do so, but it can be accepted as a fact beyond all dispute that a bill will be introduced seeking the repeal of the statutory prohibition law, and return to the local option system. The anti-prohibitionists feel much encouraged over recent election results in Alabama, Texas and Maine, and as sert with much confidence that public sentiment in Mississippi is also under going a change on this subject. The liquor question did not cut any figure in the recent State primary. It was not an issue in any county, and apparently the belief did not prevail in any section that there would be likelihood of a fight at the approach ing legislative session. The prohibition forces, of course, will immediately get in readiness for the fray, and prominent leaders in Jackson declare that there is no like lihood of the repeal of the statutory measure; that the legislature would not dare to fly in the face of public opinion on the subject. Governor-elect Brewer is unreservedly committed to the present State-wide law and its rigid enforcement. He gave an unequivocal pledge to this effect to the Mississippi W. C. T. U. shortly be fore his nomination, and there is no reason to believe that he will change his mind on the subject. The anti-Prohibitionists, it is claimed, want the matter submitted to the peo ple, and in event of failure to secure a direct appeal by the Legislature, which is, of course, more than likely, they will then make a fight to have the questions submitted to the people at special elections held simultaneously with the Congressional primary next year. In fact, the main hope of the anti- Prohibs is to get an election, and few of them entertain any idea that the Legis lature would directly repeal the exist ing statutes. On the other hand, the Prohibition ists can be expected to assume an ag gressive attitude at the very beginning of the fight, and make an insistant de mand for submission to the people of an amendment to the organic law pro viding for constitutional prohibition. This is the declared policy of the Wo man’s Christian Temperance Union, and will doubtless be adopted by other temperance organizations. Unlike other Southern States, the adoption of State-wide prohibition in Mississippi was not a sudden reform movement. It resulted from steady in roads on the open saloons through the waging of local option campaigns, un til, at the time the statutory law was enacted, only six counties in the State had open saloons.
