Chief Justice Sydney Smith — Brewer Takes No Part In Parade —Bilbo’s First Act, To JSign Col. Montgome ry's Commission. Jackson, January 18. Governor Theodore G. Bilbo took the oath of office in Representative Hall today at the hour of noon in the presence of hundreds. The oath was administered by Chief Justice Sydney Smith. Immediately after the conclusion of the parade at the new capitol which had been made through the main streets of Jackson, the sleet began to fall which compelled the new governor to deliver his address in doors. Governor Brewer left the executive office at a quarter to twelve and took no part in the parade or ceremonies. Dr. King offered prayer and the in troduction was made by Swep Taylor of Jackson. Bilbo’s first official act after taking the oath of office was to sign Col, Montgomery’s commission as prison trustee, which was highly applauded. J, C. ELMER GIVEN APPOINTMENT AS DISTRICT ATTORNEY Gulfport, January 71. Governor Brewer today appointed. J. C. Elmer as district attorney to succeed Ebb J. Ford, resigned. The appointment is for the full four years term. Mr. Elmer was in Jackson this morning and immediately upon re ceiving his commission he boarded he Gulf & Ship Island train for Gulfport and, it is understood, will qualify upon his arrival tonight. The Senate was given until this morning to take action on the bill providing for a special election., and when it became evident to Governor Brewer that no action would be taken by the Senate, he availed himself of the appointive perogative and named J, C. Elmer for the position. The appointment of Elmer occa sioned small surprise, as it has been believed all along that should the Legislature fail to provide the spe cial election bill, he would be named. He is a close personal friend of Gov. Brewer and lawyers recognized the fact that the governor would appoint him in preference to any one el?e. The names of Carl Marshall of Bay St. Louis and J. A. Leathers and J. M. Morse, Jr., of this city have been mentioned in connection vvi h the ap pointment, but it is claimed by the knowing ones that their names were used only for political capital to mis lead the Legislature. The public will now breath a sigh of relief tha£ the appointment nas been made for it has been an en grossing subject since Mr. Ford first announced his intention of resigning. Had not the demand been made for an election, Mr. Elmer would have received the appointment since Jan uary 1, the day on which Mr. Ford’s resignation was originally to become effective. A special to the Daily Herald says Norwood today introduced a concur rent resolution inserting supreme court amendments to the constitution and were referred to constitution committee. Johnson of Coahoma on the question of personal privilege de nied that he had attempted to em barrass the Bilbo administration. Orchard In Back Yard Pays Well f Ocean Springs, Jan. 14.—Proof of the financial success of citrus and pe can orchards on the Gulf Coast is found in the record of James Ash worth, who owns a one-acre backyard orchard in the town limits of Ocean Springs. Ashworth kept accurate fig ures last year and proves a $450 pro fit from 76 satsuma orange trees, 8 years old; six grapefruit trees, 3 years .old; 15 pecan trees and 4 seedling pecan trees, large sized. LUMBER OUTLOOK IS ENCOURAGING Lumber dealers are more en couraged over general conditions just now than at any time since the Out break of the European war. The volume of new orders received during the past month has been extremely heavy and there is every indication of a satisfactory spring trade. The price has advanced considerably on some items and recent inqriries indi cate that better prices may be ex pected for some of the lower grades which have been unprofitable for more than a year. Yard stocks in the Midd e West are said to be depleted and many whole salers are also running short. Ex port trade is dull, of course, and little improvement in this direction can be anticipated until the end of the Euro pean war. There is some demand abroad, but ocean freight - rates are simply prohibitive. Railroad ties and trench materials are movin.:, but the warring nations are furnishing their own bottoms.

Gasoline may hit the 40-cent mark before summer, as predicted by pro ducers over the country, but it will not long remain at that figure if the predictions of Homer T. Yaryan, of Toledo, come true. The price will be nearer eight or ten cents per gallon, Mr. Yaryan says.

Gulfport, January 17. The Gulfport delegation, composed of R. L. Simpson, Mayor Geo. M. Foote, N. D. Goodwin and John T. Connell, which went to Jackson last Friday morning in the interest of the Mississippi Centennial, has returned with enthusiastic reports. “We saw both Governor Brewer and Governor-Elect Bilbo,”’ said Mayor Foote this morning, “and each promised to make the Mississippi Centennial Exposition the order of a special message. Governor Brewer was impressed with the idea of hold ing the Exposition and promised to send in a message before the expira tion of his term of office. “Bilbo was interested from the very jump,” continued Mr. Foote, “and we have every reason to believe that he will use his influence to have the Leg islature make an appropriation com mensurate with the honor and dignity of the State.’’ It was learned from the delegation that Jackson has withdrawn its de mands for the exposition and is will ing to give the Coast the right of way. Following is an article appearing in the Jackson News of Saturday commenting on the visit of the Coast delegation: “A large delegation of Gulfport cit izens called on Governor-elect Theo. Bilbo las night to enlist his support in behalf of the proposed appropria tion of $200,000 for the Mississippi Centennial Exposition to be held at Gulfport in 1917. “The governor-elect has promised to submit the matter to the Legisla ture in a special message, and it will then be up to the promoters of the exposition to get the measure through the two houses. “The delegation was headed by Hon. R. L. Simpson, leading promoter of the exposition idea, who framed and secured the passage of several statutes at the 1912 session authoriz ing the holding of the exposition, giv ing Gulfport and the County of Har rison the right'to issue bonds there for, and also authorizing other coun ties and municipalities to extend aid to the enterprise. No state aid was pledged at that time, but the Gulf port citizens feel confident that they will get the measure through, in which event they pledge to the people of Mississippi a million dollar exposi tion next year.” Yesterday Mayor Foote and Mr. Connell went to New Orleans where they met Mr. Simpson for a confer ence with certain authorities on expo sitions.
