The lcation of a cottou mill at Tupelo through the instrument ality of a little advertising and some work on the part of its commercial organizations calls atteution to the absence aud em phasizes the need of a live, ag gressive, public spirited body here. We have had boards of trade without number and they have been composed of well meaning citizens who have paid their money and then talked the organization to death without doingany work. What is needed is a committee of ten or fifteen good men to look after such an en terprise, to do the work, and the entire business and commercial community to back them up fi nancially and otherwise. Such a plan if putinto effect here could accomplish a great deal for the advancement of Columbus. An element of interest and I strength is added to the legisla tive i ace west of the river this I. A A- - M morning m uim announcement 01 M r. S. 8. Scales for that honora ble position, which is presented in the usual column. Mr. Scales has been oneof Craw ford 'sand the prairie's foremost and leading; citizens for a number of years, is thoroughly identified with Its best interests, is a man of affairs and accustomed to deal with pub lic questions and he would make ia. splendid representative of the enlightened and progressive peo ple of tbftt section. Looking back ward brings to mind some of the honors he achieved in early years. Ho is a native of Crawford and graduated at the University in tlx' memorable class of 1872, win niitg first honor and delivering the valedictory, Dr. JerreWither spoon winning the second honor and delivering the salutatory. Thus both of the class honors in that year came to Lowndes county. Mr. Scales has issuod a card which is presented in this issue, which the attention of the people is invited to. The announcement that Gen. .Take Sharp is to be a candidate for the position of State Treas urer will b received with satis faction the State over. No man in Mississippi public life to day has more influential friends than Gen. Sharp and no man better deserves them. As soldier, as statesman, as citizen he has ren dered the State valiant service aud the people of Missh 4?pi will unite in paying a debt of grati tude long past, due in his election to this res onsible office. Gen. Sharp has been quietly makine: his plans and arrangements to enter the race and as soon as the spring opens will take the field believing this ample time to make the canvass. It is needless to say that he enters the race with his home county solid for him and with his friends everywhere es pousing his cause. The Dis patch is with him until his elec tion is assurred. Register, register, register, j Every voter of Lowndes county ! is reminded that the-new' regis tration ordered by the Board of Supervisors includes every one. No one who has not registered will be allowed to participate in the August election. You can register at the office of the cir cuit clerk now or you can await until he visits your beat. The better plan is to register when you are in town, for it will save a visit to the voting precinct for this purpose if you neglect it. If we remember correctly the Hon. Alf. George thundered in the Pea body hotel rotunda that if President Kincanuon was not a candidate he would be. The Hon. Alf. should hasten to announce or some of the fellows who are complaining of Fx's tardiness will want to rule him out. The Vicksburg Herald is of the opinion that Fox will retire from the gubernatorial race as soon as he realizes that the de mand for his entrauce came from the politicians and not the peo ple.

Early garden com at Curry Lipscomb & Caine s. Announcement. To My Fel.l5w-Citizkns of the Wkst Sidk: Yielding to the solicitations and calls of my local friends and neigh bors, I feel it to be my duty to proclaim my candidacy for the legislature. For fear of ad verse criticism of my apparent delay and tardiness in my an nouncement, I will say, first, that the other candidates were duly apprised, before their an nouncement, I was deliberating upon and contemplating this course of action; second, press ing business engagements, de sire to confer with my friends in the country, and the inclemency of the weather have delayed and prevented earlier action. T think the prime test of a rep resentative should be character, fitness and ability; the prominent characteristics should be capac ity, faithfulness and honesty; and I suspect that individual worth and personal merit will be re quired and demanded of a repre sentative by the intelligent and t houghtful voters of this district. Loyalty to friends and devotion to duty shall be my watch-word. Respectfully, S. s. Scales Mississippi Matters. The State Teachers' Associa tion will meet in Vicksburg in April. It is expected that six hundred delegates will be pres ent. A special from Scooba last Wednesday stated that Critz, Vardaman and Noel had spoken there during the recess of court. Critz was mentioned as the favor ite. Hon. Fuller Fox has entered into the State campaign, making his first speech last night at Biloxi. This week he will go to Smith county and will speak at Raleigh and other places. State Superintendent Whit field will soon distribute to the teachers of the State a general plan for institute aud normal wrork to be done this summer. He is at work on the plan at the present time and will soon have it out of the press. Specials from Washington state that President Roosevelt is again planning a big bear hunt aud that he will come to Mississippi. It is hardly necessary to state that he will not come at the pres ent time but his expedition is ex pected to occur next year. At last Mississippi is to have a battleship named after her. Of the five battleships authorized by the recent naval law, one is to be name I after this State. It will be a ship of thirteen thous and tons and will be similar to the namesake of Iowa. Mississip pians will have to do the hand some thing now and give her a silver service. The case in which Revenue Agent Wirt Adams sued to re cover privilege tax licenses from the sleeping car companies doing business in this State has just been decided in his favor by the Supreme Court of the United States. This makes the fifth case which has been appealed to the highest tribunal in the land and every one of them has been decided iu favor of the State Revenue Agent. A rather novel procedure was witnessed at Kosciusko in the circuit court a few days ago in the trial of the whitecappers of that section. One of them tiled affidavit making objection to Judge Stevens as the presiding judge charging that he was prej udiced aud was not the proper person to give them a fair and impartial trial. Judge Stevens denied the charge but refused to hear the cases. W. T. Lee & Co. sell "Trade Mark" cigars for 5c. Sfi ! sti. fr, sfo. sit, it. tt, ili. jfe te !g. jfor Sale!

Meetings. of the City Council ; were hejd ou Tuesday aud Friday nights of the past week, all mem bers of that body being present. The following is a summary of the minutes of the meetings: Councilman Stevens requested that in the correction of the min utes his vote "nay " be recorded in the matter of refunding to the veterans the amount of their privilege license at the fair. After discussing the matter, the Council decided to increase the salary of Assistant E, ineer Koburn, ten dollars to be .Mowed him iu the rent of his l ouse, which the city is to pay. The resignation of Exurn Car ter as a member of the Ire de partment was received and ac cepted. Chief Wakefield and the Fire Committee were authorized to appoint a temporary fireman until a good man could be se cured. J. W. Smith and T. J. Locke appeared before the Council rel ative to their back taxes. The adjustment of the same was des ferred until the return of Mr. Galloway. The report of the Mayor, being a review of the various city af fairs with his recommendations and suggestions, was received and read in open Council. The reports of the other officers of the city were also receifed and read . The sidewalk matter came up for consideration and it was dis cussed generally by the members of the Council and Messrs. W. C. Richards and T. B. Franklin with Gov. J. T. Harrison. O-l. Rich ai ds suggested a plan which has met with great favor, that is that one-hart" of the cost of the walks be paid by the city and the other half by the property holder whose propt i ty is improved. W. M. Wright asked the return of his privilege tax license ou the gnwind that he is an old Confed erate soldier and entitled to the statutory exemption. Referred to the Mayor for investigation. The Fire Committee rendered an adverse report against the selling of the old pest-house pro perty. The matter of lighting he wa-1 ter plant and the firemen's hall came up for consideration. The: bill of lights for these twTo build ings is about 20.00 per month j and the Council now has under j consideration the purchase of a dynamo to be installed at the city water plant to furnish the city with lights. The matter of erecting coal houses and closets at the Union Academy was referred to the School Committee with power to act. The report of the Superintend ent and Inspector, recommend ing the grading of a number of flash tanks and manholes and asking for the locations of the uew meters, which had arrived, was received. The Council met last Friday night aud spent the evening in a discussion of the sidewalk matter. The report of the Street Committee, djesi.gnati ng the streets upon which sidewalks are to be laid, was received, and the report will, in all probability, be adopted on Tuesday night. After discussing the various methods suggested for the building of the sidewalks, it seems to be the concensus of opinion that the most practical plan is for the city to bear the expense of grading and property holders to pay the cost of building the walks. The plan and the streets will be de cided upon on Tuesday night. Fearful Odds Against Him. Bedridden, alone and destitute. Such, in brief, was the condition of an old soldier by tlie name of J. J.

The entertainment was well attended, and it was accord ed a liberal patronage. The re ceipts from the enterprise amounted to 40.15, and after de ducting the bill of expense there was a good sum left- The popu lar voting contest resulted in the handsome cake being awarded to Miss Georgie Ellis, daughter of Mr. J.

The appointment of the road overseers as agreed upon and as appearing upon the record was approved. The usual allowances were made and the board adjourned. A Card of Thanks. In view of having beeu re stored to convalescense from se vere and dangerous illness, it is meet aud right to offer thanks to Almighty God, the ruler of Heav en and earth, for His divine aid and help, and I furthermore re turn my sincere thanks and grat itude to the officers and mem bers of Columbus Lodge No. 5, A. P. & A. M. for their many acts of kindness, care and atten tion given me during my severe illness, which contributed so much to my relief and recovery. I extend special! thanks to some Confederate Veterans, es pecially Capt. R. E.

In short, my friends, one and all will please accept my love and gratitude for the great kindness and condolence shown me during my severe illness. It F. W. Flood.
