I PLACE YOUR ORDER NOW. || EDWARDS BROS., Selling Agents, I r BAY ST. LOUIS. MISSISSIPPI. ||| MISSISSIPPI STIRRED UP OVER THE RECENT INSURANCE ACTS Insurance Companies Threaten to Withdraw from State end Leave All Without Protections — Steps to Repeal Law Being Urged. i Prominent insurance men from the head puarters of some of the largest insuraxme companies in the United States are in conference at Jackson this week looking over the situation, who were a day or so aso garnisheed by Stokes Robertson, the state revenue agent, because, as he alleges of their violation of the anti-trust laws of the state, and i t is understood that they have authorized their local agents to write no new business until this trouble with the state Is adjusted. State Insurance Commissioner Tom Henry appeals to the companies to continue business if they possibly can, as the withdrawal from the state at this time would be nothing short of a disaster that would cripple nearly every form of business. Mr. Henry says that he is not in sympathy with this suit by the revenue agent, and was not consul ted befor it was filed. The penalty de manded bv the revenue agent and which is authorized by law is $5,000 per day for every day since this combine was formed from 10 to 12 years ago. The sum thus involved is something enormous, and just what is going to be done cannot be fore told. Should the insurance companies all withdraw from the state all lines of busi ness which carry insurance will be para lyzed. There is talk that the Governor lg to be petitioned at once to call a special session of the legislature for the repeal of these anti-trust laws, so far as the fire insurance companies are concerned. L No Funds fo r Dredging at Biloxi. The Boloxi Chamber of Commerce baa been informed by the United States En gineer’s office that funds are not at pres ent available to dredge the channel lead ing into Biloxi harbor and it Js expected however, that funds will be forthcoming at a later date with which the mnej, need ed improvements can be made. A survey boat has been sent out to investigate the conditions at Biloxi as well as In other parts of the Mississippi sound. Fear is bein expressed that damage to vessels plying in the Biloxi harbor will be felt if ’ immediate relief is not afforded and Secretary of the Chamber of Commerce will take the matter to the attention of officials at Washington to secure relief from the present situation. Regulation State Plant Board. At a meeting of the State Plant Board just held at the Mississippi A. & M. Col lege a number of new rules and regula tions were adopted, which affects trans portation companies, nurseries, beekeep ers, and growers of sugar cane and sweet Among the rules is one requiring trans potatoes in Mississippi and other states, portation companies to notify the State Plant Board when shipments of nursery stock are received for delivery. Another rule places a quarantine on all apiaries and bee-yards containing foulbrood or other disease, regulates the sale of queen bees, and the shipment of bees, second-hand hives, and other fixtures into and within the State of Mississippi. Sugar cane growers are affected by a rule naming the counties in the state in fected by the Mosaic disease and prohib iting th eshipment of sugar cane from those counties. Avery similar rule res tricts the shipment of sweet potatoes from those portions of the state infested wth the sweet potato weevil. Regulations were also made regarding the sale of seed sweet potatoes, plants, and vines In all parts of the state, and the shipment of all sweet potatoes into the State. Quarantines were declared against sev eral of the Eastern and Northern states on account of the European Corn Borer, the Japanese beetle, and the brown-tail moth. All these regulations have the force of law and their violations are pun ishable by heavy fines and imprisonment. The National Guard. Mississippi now has a National Gnard practically a battalion having been reor ganized while other companies are under process of formation, the work being di rected by a conscientious, capable adjut ant-general, who has patriotically toiled at this task, refusing to be beaten and whose labors are meeting with success. The formation and maintenance of a Na tional Guard is a public duty. The very fact that a company is domiciled In a city is a sort of insurance against riots, and with unsettled conditions prevailing every town and city in Mississippi should have a strong, well trained. National Guard. — Jackson Clarion-Ledger. War Risk Insurance There is a genuine cause for regret in the statements of Mr. Gordon E. Bishop, war risk insurance officer for Mississippi that ex-service men in the state have al lowed $300,000,000 worth of insurance to lapse since the close of the war, and that there is now not more than $200,000,000 of this class of insurance in force. Every ex-service man who can possibly dw so, ought to keep up his war risk insurance. Ask any reputable life insurance man in regard to it. and he will frankly tell yon that it is impossible t osecure better or cheaper protection. It is not yet too late to reinstate war risk Insurance, and the men who formerly carried it ought to give immediate attention to the matter, for the time limit expires on December 31st. — Jackson News. FUMIGATION OF SEED BEANS AND COWPEAS IS NOW URGED State Entomologist Issues Warning Prohibiting Presence of 801 l Weevil By Immediate At tention to Plant Seeds —Simple Process. i Don’t wait until after Christmas to fumi ate your seed beans and cowpeas for wee vils. is the advice sent out to farmers and Sied dealers by the State Entomologist of Mississippi. Most farmers have by this time finished threshing out their beans ud cowpeas which should be fumigated at once as every day’s delay now means lower vitality in the seed and a poorer stand next gpring. Many farmers neglect fumigation until the presence of so many weevils in the beans and peas compels attention, by which time much damage has already been done. This fumigation can be easily and cheaply done with bisulphide of carbon. For small amounts the seed should be placed in tight barrels, and one half cup of bisulphide to a full barrel of grain will be sufficient. The tops should be covered With a tarpaulin, rubber roofing, thick wrapping paper, or anything that will con fine the gas. The gas will destroy the wee vils quicker if the work is done on a warm day. The barrels should remain covered for forty-eight hours and no lights or fire should be permitted near them as the gas is highly inflamnable. For large quantities the seed should be placed In a tight bin or granary and fumigated at the rate of two pounds by weight of the carbon bysulphide to each hundred bushels of grain. The carbon bisulphide or “high life” as it is ■ometimes called, can be purchased at any drug store. Lower Taxes if U. S. Cut Expenses Taxes can be reduced during 1921 if con gress cuts goverment expenditures, Repub lican Leader Mondell told the house yes terday. Declaring the tax reduction most imperative, Alondell advocated reducing appropriations from $4,500,000,000, asked by government departments to $3,250,000,- 000 and opposed the claim of Secretary of the Treasury that government revenues must be kept to $4,000,000,000 annually for at least two years. The republican house leader also op posed attempts largely to reduce the war debt during the next few years, asserting the nation already has paid 44 per cent of its war bill, if loans to he allies are not considered. Victory notes, totaling about $4,500,000,000, maturing May 20. 1923, can not be paid without increasing taxes and should be refunded into long term obliga tions, he said, adding that, even with the taxes reduced, it will be possible through strict economy to substantially reduce the floting debt, as represented by treas ury certificates of indebtedness and war saving stamps. Fifty Million Short in 1919 Tax. Secretary of the Treasury Houston and other officials are very eager to learn of the reports of the various revenue officers of the country and whether or not the big business tax creditors of the government have paid their debts. Approximately $650,000,000 should have been in the hands of the government Wed nesday night as the fourth installment on taxes on income and excess profits earned in 1919. Most of the money was due from millionaire partnerships and corporations. Instead of $650,000,000, the collections to talled $50,000,000, it was unofficially esti mated. If the tax collections did fall $150,000,000 short. Secretary of the Treas ury and other officials will be confronted with a serious problem. Money is ur gently needed to meet operating expenses keeping a daily balance of $250,000,000 in the treasury and pay off millions in loans maturing within the next few weeks. If collections are below the estimate the gov ernment is likely to face a tremendously increased deficit at the close of the year. The treasury department actuary, Jos eph S. McCoy, said he thought some cor porations would fail to pay the full amounts due an those failing in the pay ment are subject to a penalty beginning a 5 per cent of the amount unpaid and increased according to the length of time of the default.
