TBLEPHONK NO THURSDAY. APRIL 27. 1916 h. h cniatce UISCRIPTION MIC. «2 *(£****" Entered at the Poatofltce at Port OibaoB.Uta. a* aecond-claaa mail matter For Congress. The Reveille is authorized to announce R. N. MILLER candidat» for Representative in Con from the Seventh District, subject to as a gress the Democratic Primary Alderman Persoo makes it plain to-day's Reveille that if thr property owners, along the streeti wbich the aldermen have in upon decided pavements shall be laid, defeat the proposition which pro vides for a bond issue—the town to pay interest—in order to make it for the owner to do the work. easy the board wilt resort to its legal right to establish a uniform system of walks, and as each walk needs repairing order a walk laid io con formny with the system estab iisbed. This would meau a cash outlay for the full cost ol the work done. As almost every walk along the streets specified needs repairs, it is readily seen that it would be foolish to fight the plan of easy paymeots which the board now proposes. There is on question that the walks are needed, but it would be a hardship on many of the proper ty owoers to have to pay the futl cost of coostructiou in one year. Under the wise plan adopted by the board, giving the owners teo years in which the cost without interest, the expense will scarcely be felt by any one. A walk 50 feet long by g wide would cost approx- Divided into ten im&tely $50. equal payments, the annual outlay will be ooly $5. Property owoers would do a very unwise thing to fight this libera] plan. Tiie Engineering Magaztoe pre diets that after the European war has ended there will be an exodus of foreiga boro mea from the United States to their oative land to help rebuild the waste cities and country, and as a result there will be a scarcity of labor here. Five hundred thousand men, this mag azine estimates, will go back to their hemes. There sh >u d be 10 scarcity of labor should as many as a million men go Hack to Eu rope. Our cities are filled with idlers who claim they caooot find work. These should be forced to take the places of those who leave, and the result would be wholesome io that iu would prevent idleness, supply the need for labor, and at the same time in large measure rid our large cities of their congested slums.

The objections which I have heard have been from peo pie who give as their reasons for objecting the fact that they are not ante to pay tor sidewalks We all agree that certain sidewalks in Port Gibson need attention. It the property owners do not want to go in under the ten year plan, then, looking to the future it be comes the duty ot the Board to adopt a standard sidewalk for Port Gtbsoo, and as the various side walks get bad it will be the duty o ihe Board to order the property owner to put dowa a sidewalk up io the specifications, and iu that event the property owner would have to bear the entire costs. I give the above explanation to show the people that the Board is trying to help the property owners and not workiog against them, they now have an idea we are. J. W. PERSON, Cb'm. Sidewalks Committee. I Con to thr as to it Good Roads. There has been not less tha; three million dollars In bond Issu«: endorsed or voted in the State o Mississippi since Jan 1st, 1916 for modern road construction, be sides the national highway project which is being shaped up for com pietion at an early date. This indicates the importance of such improvements to all, and to no one more than the farmer. Claiborne county. Port Gibson the county seat, shonld also be th> center of the greatest amount of business, and the best markets With this fact in view there is bn one way to establish these condi tions, and that is good roads. If a farmer has produce to mark et, the cost of moving it is almost prohibitive at certain times of the year, and tinder the best conditions of the roads a team cannot haul more than one fith of the load that it could haul on a modern road, where the grades are eliminated, as would be in the case of a model road. Among the many possibilities and benefits that will obtain will be the delivery by anto trucks of goods purchased by telephone, to the country buyers, and save them a trip to town at times when It is r most inconvenient to make the trip. And also the great benefits that can be derived by owners of cars in business matters, as well as for pleasure, as there is no localiti that bas so many attractive fea tnres along the highways as has Mississippi. If the citizens of Port Gibson and outlying towns and villains will huk at this proposition nn biased and see the great mtiMi«*l benefits thit can obtain by havim direct and snre communication by the good road method, there wil he unanimous endorsement of the project. The present hoard of supervisors see the useless expenditures of road and bridge maintainance, unde; present methods, and would oromptly act in the matter, with » view of getting in line to bu>ld permanently, if the taxpayer would so instruct. This is the sentiment of Pres! dent Allen, judging by his exprès sions in his last monthly report, and also of others of the hoard, and is being put Into practical *hape by asking for bids on con crete culverts, at the nex* meeting, the first of the kind in the county All who are interested in this move, get together and arrange to lay the matter before the people for their approval or rejection. be the be f I n 1 to * * * The Giunty Schools.

On account of the unusually dry season, the oat crop of the county, probably the largest ever planted, is very poor indeed, and not more than half of an average yield will be harvested.
