She was eighteen years of age and a native and resi dent of Vicksburg. lhe governor has offered a re ward of $250 for the arrest and conviction of Rufus Ousley, a negro, who murdered Lucius Love, a prominent young farmer, near Shrock, a few days ago. The negro had written an insult ing letter to a young lady and Love and others had gone after him. Ousley fired on the party from ambush. The negro is'5 feet 11 or 12 inches high; weighs 165 or 175 pounds; is about 35 years of age; clean shaven with small moustache; dark ginger cake color; wears No. 9 shoe. Hon. J. J.

Director Dunbar Rowland, of the Department of Archives and History, has received a handsome oil portrait of the late George S. Yerger for a position in the gal lery of historic portraits.

Foote and the bril- ' liant coterie of lawyers who made J the State famous at that time, and shaped the early constitutions and laws. The portrait was presented by Mrs. Ida Hicks, daughter of Mr. Yerger, who is now-living in Vicksburg. C. 0. D. Traffic. The Vicksburg Herald tbut comments on the business: The recent marked growth ol foreign C. O. D. whisky sales ir the dry counties of the State is calculated to 'increase interest ir 1 the passage of the Ilepburn-Dolli ver bill. It is drawn on lines thai were probably dictated by a likf C. O. D. invasion of prohibitior territory in the Northwesteri States. This bill was thus refer red to and endorsed in a recenl speech by Senator Carmack, ol Tennessee, who is canvassing his State for re-election: “There are some other qties tions upon which I shall probablv be called to act and upon which you have a right to know mj views. There is the question in volved in what is known as the Hepburn-Dolliver bill. This bil simply proposes that when intoxi eating liquors are brought fron one State into another they shal become subject to the police laws of that State. I favor, and fron the beginning have favored, the passage of that bill. I favor it as a Democrat, believing in State’s rights and local government—be lieving that every State should b< supreme in the exercise of its proper police powers within its own borders. I favor it also be cause it gives to every State th< right to regulate and restrain tin liquor traffic in accordance wit! its own judgment of the publii needs. It is not my purpose to nigut to deal with the liquor ques tion except as it comes within tb< sphere of my duties as a senator.’ The Herald is opposed on prin ciple to any law which would cur tail the right of the citizen t( purchase anything for his use 01 consumption that may be lawfully sold, in any market. But wher one right or principle is made t( conflict with another—when om law is used as an instrument ol violation of statutes on which is rested State policy, the materia! welfare and social morals of com munity life—choice will always be made of the lesser violation ol the two. On this line of reason ing we join Senator Carmack, it declaring in favor of the Hep burn-Dolliver bill, which would subject foreign sellers of intoxi cants to laws of this State which govern her own citizens as to the sale of intoxicating liquors. Light is shed on the C. O. D. methods which has caused such widespread compaint recently, in the following from the Deer Creels Pilot: “The Order of Railway Tele graphers, one of the most conser vative and powerful organizations in the country, has taken up the matter of handling C. O. D. whis ky. In all small towns the mem bers of the order also fill the posi tions of depot agents and express agents, so it can be readily under stood that they are vitally inter ested in the question. The mem bers of the order are honorable, law-abiding gentlemen and they naturally object to being forced iDto a position where they are cumpeueu 10 antagonize tne senti ment of the best people of the communities in which they are located. They also object very seriously to being forced to act as saloon keepers or dispensers of whisky for the C. O. D. whisky houses. The order should have the hearty support of the press, the pulpit ana the people in its efforts to rid the members of this iniquitous business. At the least slip in the transaction the express agent is execrated by people who are ignorant of the true facts, indicted, lined, imprisoned and stamped as a criminal for some thing be was powerless to pre vent. In other words, he is left to hold the sack while the^ real offenders, the whisky bouses and the express company, go free.” Must Not Pull Customers In. A petition signed by a large number of the city merchants, was tendered the City Council at their regular meeting last Monday night, requesting that an ordi nance bo passed, maging it a mis demeanor for merchants to pull in customers from the streets. • This sort of thing has become so customary on lower Main street that it has become anaisance. A country negro is harrassed by some of the store keepers to en tering the store and making par-' chases. The Dames of the firms attached to the petition to the Council, shows that a large num ber of the business men are op posed to this sort of practice and they have taken means to have it stopped.—Yazoo Sentinel. Leo Duckworth, a negro and well-to-do farmer, shot and killed Sylvester Feazle,’ another negro, it Mize. It was justifiable, as the shooting was done in self defense. ‘If all the year were playing holi days, L’o sport would be as tedious as to work.” > BANKING LAW CHANGES. Generally speaking, the bank ers 6f the State will oppose the : amendments to the banking laws suggested by the code commis i sion, whereby the financial insti tutions of the State will be placed under closer supervision and sub ; jected to frequent inspections by ! expert accountants. - Opposition will be based on the general principle that the banks are getting along in splendid shape at present, that there have been fewer failures in Mississippi than any Southern State in reeent years, and supervision as propos ed by the commission is wholly unnecessary. There are a few bunkers, how ever, who are favorably impress ed with the plan of supervision, and believe that it will be better both for the banks and the public, giving protection not only to de positors, but in the interchange of business between banks. ^ Owing to the very remarkable growth of the banking industry i during the past two years the i commission amendments will at i tract considerable attention when brought up for debate. Missis sippi is one of the very few States in the union that practically have no system of bank inspection. Mr. J. B. Watt, president of ! the Bank of Washington, and one i of the foremost financiers in the State, has written the following : letter to the governor setting forth his views on the subject oi iusoection. “I wish to call your attention to the laxity of our present State banking laws, and the urgent ne cessity for their amendment, i “These laws were enacted to safeguard the money of the peo ple, but their practical applica tion is a constant menace, not i only to the savings of the people, i but to the commercial and finan cial operations of the entire State. “A stringent' system of State bank examinations is an absolute necessity, and no honest man can object to such provision. “Our present system of report ing to the State Auditor is a com plete farce, and affords not the slightest protection to the public, but it furnishes easy opportunity for dishonest bank officials to make a false showing of the con dition of their institutions. This is a fact of Such common occur rence that specifications are un necessary. Furthermore, this system is unfair to the national banks doing business in our com monwealth. These banks are owned and operated by our citi zens, and they are examined by the government’s officers and in my opinion the people are entitled to as much protection to their money from the State government as from the national government. “I feel that the State banks would be willing to pay a reason able fee towards defraying the expenses of s»ch an examination, for it furnishes protection not only to the people, but to stock holders and bank officers. “I do, therefore, respectfully urge that you bring this matter to the attention of the legislature at its approaching session.”—Jack son Evening News. Fewer banks and stronger banks, with a better and more re liable system of bank inspection, is undoubtedly the policy of safe ty for the people of Mississippi, and one the Legislature at its coming session should giveserious consideration to. Small banks, with limited resources, may glide along very well during a season of general prosperity, such as the country is now enjoying, but once let a season of financial stringency cdme, with its inevitable business stagnation and shrinkage of values, and the little banks could not stand the strain.1 When such a crisis occurs, the small banks will begin to fail, depositors of perfectly solvent - banks will be come alarmed and begin a run on them, others will fail and a panic will ensue which will involve even some of the larger and stionger i banking institutions. The time for safeguards is be fore such a calamity begins. It is folly to sit idly down and shut our eyes to such a disastrous pos sibility! '_; At the last monthly meeting of the HarrisoQ county Board of Supervisors at Gulfport all the merchantable timber standing in section 16, township 7, range 13, was advertised for sale by an or der from that body. A bid of $2,800 was made by the New Or leans Naval Stores Company, which was the largest amount offered, and the Board declared the company the purchaser. The work of construction on the city electric road is progressing rapid ly. A force of 200 men is em ployed.___ Cotton growers and citizens of the community cl Gallman met and organized a district associa tion, with the following officers: W. T. McDade, president; C.
