Lincoln Countian Finds "Rotten Pol
itics" Outside of Mississippi.
Dear Leader
No doubt you will be surprised to
hear from us away down in South
west Texas. Yet we look forward
with a great deal of interest for the
Leader, and assure you we appreciate
the contents of your most valuable
Crops are very poor on account of
dry weather, no rain in 9 weeks. Will
finish picking this month, and will
get about 25,000 bales against 64,
000 last year in this country.
We have just passed through the
hoti^st political campaign that we
have ever had any experience with.
But with the assistance of the good
women and the Κ. Κ. K. we were
able to sweep the State of Texas on
July 22nd with but few exceptions
and we are now on the home stretch
Aug. 26th, to finish cleaning i"> the
negro vote which were permitted In
a white primary—something we have
never witnessed before.
Excitement In this city on July 22
ran high, on account of the anti
K. Κ. K., assisted by the negroes and
Mexicans trying to put men in office
who favored whiskey, bootlegging,
and gambling and it took the com
bined effort of the good citizens as
blsted by the 9 State Rangers to keep
them from stealing it. For
example, where we live, our box
ran 3 to 1 in our favor and they had
evidently planned to steal this box
as they refused to finish counting
Saturday night. We stood guard all
night Saturday night and would not
allow them to leave with the box un
til Sunday about 6 o'clock p. m.
The einriin hprt Increased to about
500 and demanded the count to be
lead aloud. Six shooters, high-pow
ered rifles, sawed off shot guns, were
to be seen on every hand. There
would.have been blood shed If the
State Rangers hadn't Njeen here. The
good people had decided not to allow
them to steal this election as'they
had done here before. The W. C. T.
U. stood with us with plenty of eate
and coffee, the whole time.
The above Is an example of what
happened at mapy other boxes In the
county. Wife and I were in thit
campaign every day and part of the
night for about four weeks, before
the election. I thought I had ex
perlenc« In rotten politics in Missis
sippl, but nothing to compare witli
what we have Just gone through witt
here. My opinion is that the tinu
has come for a clean-up from consta
ble to president or we are gone as ε
nation of people.
You can publish this in your vpa
per if you wish.
Yours for clean politics,
Nola White.

Mrs. Mary A. Smith, Aged 92, Dies.
After nearly a century of mortal
life, more than half of which was
spent in widowhood with its grave
responsibilities of home and chil
dren, Mrs. Mary Smith met at the
end of the way the last enemy, thru
a simple accident that proved fatal
and that filled her last days with
great pain and suffering. Mrs.
Smith was in her 92nd year. She
had not been able to walk for some
time and was almost blind, but had

The death occurred at the home of
one of her two living daughters,
Mrs. J. L. Sutton, of the Mt. Moriah
neighborhood, the other being Mrs.
Harper Williams, of Klrby. A son,
Mr. Derrell Smith, prominent in our
county, is also left to mourn. A
brother, Mr. Madison Smith, whose
condition has been critical for some
time, Is also a resident In this coun
Mrs. Smith belonged to the heroic
band of women and mothers of the
old South. Her husband, Martin
Smith, died during the Civil War,
leaving her with six small children
to rear and support. She occupied
the old home in the vicinity of which
she died, until a few years ago when
she removed to the home of her
daughter, Mrs. J. L. Sutton. - Her
early married life was spent on Fair
River. She often visited in Brookha
ven with her grand-children, Mrs.
J. M. Magee and Mr. Homer Sutton.
She leftves thirty-six grand-children,
ninety-five great-grand-children and
ten great-great-grandchildren.
Mrs. Smith is the last member of
her immediate family, her only eis
ter, Mrs. S. H. Chandler, mother of
Mrs. D. Sartin and of Messrsv £. H.
and D. S. Chandler, of Brookhaven,
having died in 1912. The maiden

Governor Russell is Served With
Papers as He Goes to
Oxford to Vote.
Memphis, Tenn., Aug. 15.—Miss
Blrkhead of New Orleans today filed
suit for $50,000 damages against
Governor Lee M. Russell of Mississ
ippi in the United States District
Court for Northern Mississippi at
Oxford. Miss Birkhead, as in her
two previous suits against the gov
ernor, alleges seduction under prom
ise of marriage.
Service was made by federal court
officers on Governor RusselJ when
he returned to his home at Oxford
to vote today. He accepted the ser
vice and the trial was set for De
cember 3rd.
The allegations made in the suit
filed today are identical with those
in the two previous suits filed by
the young woman against the gov
The first of these, riled in the
United States district court for
South Mississippi, was thrown out of
court on grounds of lack of jurisdic
tion and the second, filed in the state
circuit court at Oxford, is set for
The above is the caption of an in
teresting article in Ford's Independ
ent, the prelude to which runs as
The occasion was a civic celebra
tion pulled oft to give a community
a cnance to brag lustily of itself.
After eloquent passages that includ
ed "God's Country" and the "Finest
People on Earth." the orator of the
day waved a hand loftily and ex
claimed :
"Look upon these monuments of
civic enterprise, these transcendent
evidences of community progress!"
meaning the city's fine streets, its
parks, schools and public buildings.
As the crowd's applause died down
a squeaky voice in the telltale tone
of a "crank" came from somewhere
in the crowd :
"Yes, and monuments of debt."
Monuments of debt. That is what
the average American municipality
is as a governmental or business in
stitution today. There scarcely is
one that owns more than an "equi
ty" in the streets, the parks, the wa
ter works, even the schoolhouses and
city halls themselves, which are so
often pointed to with pride. Own
ership in greater part more often lies
with money-lenders, usually money
lenders at the seats of big finance
far away from those evidences of
"progress," than with the citizenry
that boasts of them.
The debts of villages, towns and
cities in America total somewhere a
round the staggering sum of ten
.billion dollars!
The article continuing says that
city interest payments are seven
times as laree as lihrarv rosts In
1919 the interest cost was more than
one third of the school cost. Today,
approximately 12 per cent of all net
municipal revenues goes to pay inter
est. Interest now amounts to more
than half of the proportion of mu
nicipal revenues. This statement of
the Census Bureau refers to cities
of 30,000 or more. There are 227
such cities- in the U. S. These cities
owe beyond three billion of dollars.
More and mçre the American city
is leaning on the extended arm of the
money lender to pay its way. The
underlying cause is the continued in
crease of the cost of municipal gov
ernmental operations. It is not all
due to graft, or to waste or to poli
tics. The items of cost that have
grown most have to do with enter
prises of the most commendable kind
—sanitation, public health, parks,
paved streets, playgrounds, and a
bove all, schools. The per capita ex
penditures of the maintenance and
operation of schools doubled and
more than doubled in the majority
of big cities between 1914-'2ϋ. Ii
did that in our town.
In other words the public has been
propagating or demanding from its
city government more than it was
willing to pay for. Hence "bonds".
The tax iaising power of every city
is put in pawn when it sells a bond.
The Independent continues: "Ci
ties pay more to money-lenders than
to teachers, librarians, doctors, en
This article refers to large cities—
Brookhaven is no city, by compari

from that of the big cities mortgag

has been told and related by thous

cured me. I have recommended It

it and shall continue to do so for I
know it is a quick and positive cure
for bowel troubles."
