Vardaman, and it is douUful if any candidate for po titical office ever received at the hands of Columbian a Krcetinx h cordial or so enthoufiastic as that extended the pitted statesman from South Mississippi. Although Mr. Harrison was unknown personally t' the majority of his hearers, his fame as an orator had proceeded him, and they expected much. They were pleased beyond expectations, however, as the address whiehhe delivered was one of the most eloquent and most convincing political discourses ever heard in Columbu:-. It was, in fact, a patriotic appeal rather than a political harangue. Nearly every sentence uttered by the brilliant speaker Uemed with the love which he cherinhes for hi country and his flair, and as he recited the numerous atrocities which forced the United States to enter the p-eat world-wide war which is now in progress, his listen- oners sat with baited breath, spellbound, enchanted, en thrilled. Few men possess the power to hold the atten tion of- their fellow beinirs so completely as Mr. Harri son held the attention of his audience Tuesday nlirht, and his brilliant address furnished convincing proof of the far.ii that he is splendidly qualified to fill the hijrh office which he seeks. Mr. Harrison was introduced by Hon. I hanes Ij. , Garnett, a (rifted member of the local bar, and his re marks, which were exceedingly well chosen, formed nn appropriate prelude to the brilliant forensic rnnsterpiec which followed. A VICTORY FOR SUFFRAGE. Advocates of equal suffrage achieved a great vic tory last Tuesday, when, by an overwhelming majority, the qualified electors of New -York voted to grant the ritfht of the ballot to the women of that state. The victory -'Aime after sixty-nine years' hard work on the pnrt of the women of New York to secure the right of franchise, and .sriws the Kmpire State something like two million additional voters. New York is the first of the great eastern states to grant women the right of the ballot, and having" won their fight, the sorTragists of the Empire Slate will now turn their attention toward an effort to secure an amend ment to the Federal constitution which will enfranchise women throughout the United States. The victory for equal suffrage in New York was by no means unexpected, as President Wilson, in an address delivered to workers for the cause a few rtnys prior to the election, gave his hearty indorsement to the inove . ment, and his words undoubtedly had weight with the voters of the state. We doubt, however, the ability of the suffrage lead ers to secure, in the near future at least, an amendment to the Federal Constitution which will give to women throughout the entire country the right of the ballot. It will be remembered that the President emphatically stated in the speech referred to in the pre'eeding- para- dt I, ill" 1 1 w,i'itiiM lit In .i ftl!,J wmIm r f thf tk it may, h'iwavf, qwt ufffK for th ! r i"iifi!ry romm.

We hav Uncle Sam to thank for at last supplying the need, a the demonstrator is beinir furnished by him as a war measure, and his salary is to be paid out of fed- n,fin'9 rompiy wifn in r-i mr,n.

The Rovernment, retjenizing the urgent need for increased activity in aicricultural pursuits, has lecidcd to provide farm demonstrators for a number of counties in different states throughout the country which e now without officials of this character, and Lowndes was sufficiently fortunate to be selected as one of the counties to be thus supplied. The demonstrator was secured largely through the efforts of Mr. It. S. Wilson, assistant state aeent for the United States department of agriculture, and after a conference with Mr. Ira L. Gaston, president of the Chamber of Commerce of Lowndes County, this official has selected Mr. II. S. Wells for the place. Mr. Wells, who is a man of wide experience, will have supervision over two counties. He will make his headquarters at the A. an M. College, and will cover the territory in an auto mobile, rH ld ial IR TAMMANY TRIUMPHANT. The Tammany tiger is on top again. After having remained supine in its lair for many long and weary months, the wonderful animal, which seems to have more than the nine lives generally attribut ed to its feline brother, the tit, has kaped boldly forth and is again in .Control of municipal politics in New York, America's largest and most famous city. j The triumph of the tiger was achieved last Tuesday, when Judge John F. Hylan, candidate for mayor on the Tammany ticket, was elected over his opponents by a plurality of something like 140,000 votes. The plurality is said to be the largest vote ever given any candidate in a political contest in the Fjmpire City, nd the outcome of the ele 'Lion shows that the Gothamites want a wide-open city, as that is what Tammany has alwaya given them when the party has been power in the past. Judge Hylan had three opponents in the race; John I'urroy Mitchell, the present mayor of the city, who ran on a fusion ticket; ex-State Senator William M. Bennett, me Republican nominee wtio defeated Mitchcl in the pri maries, and Morris Hillquit, the wealthy candidate of toe Socialist purty. Mayor Mitchel was undoubtedly Judge IIylan' strongest opponent, and it is said that many causes con tributed to his defeat. He was elected mayor four years ago on a reform ticket, and, like many reform candidates, proved to he unsatisfactory to the people. It is charged that he was too dogmatic, too distatorial and too narrow minded, and that, moreover, he was unfair and unjust, having been exceedingly tight on the people at large, while members of a high-toned clique composed largely of his personal friends and political supporters were al lowed to roister without let or hindrance. These charges may or may not tie true; but, at any rate, Tammany is in the saddle aain, and we feel si.fe in venturing the prediction that the proposed plan to dim the lights on Rroadway will not be successfully consummated.
