Friends and patrons of the Commercial-Appeal throughout Mississippi regret to see the partisanship of its Jac kson cor respondent and his determina tion to "write'' certain men into office. On the 23rd inst. appear ed a highly eulogistic write up of Hon. Joe Power as a candi date for the office of Secretary of Slate which pleased this gen tleman's friends the State over. Had tv-e article stopped here there would have heen no objec tion to it but the usually courte ous and considerate Jackson writer took occasion to disparage Mr. Power's two opponents, Mr. Peadro and Mr. Runnells, al luding to the former in coarse and undignified terms and dis missing Forrest Runnells, one of the most capable and deserv ing young men in the State, with an inconsiderate reference. The apparent advantage which such eulogy was intended to carry is lost in the resentment which it causes among Mr. Power's op pouents'f riends and it causes the subscribers of this great and progressive journal to hope that its columns will not be given to such practices in the future. As the State representative of a great paper the Jackson corres pondent should, at least, treat all democrats alike, with fairness. Such exhibitions of partisanship are extremely distateful to a large number of the Commercial Appeal's subscribers who are supporting Mr. Power's oppo nents.

D0N0QHUE. if fg K i fm i v i iv y$i To $ yf v f THE PRIMARY An erroneous idea prevails in some quarters that the primary for State officers must not be held earlier than Aug. 20 nor later than Sept. 1. This is true as to congressional primaries, but the primaries for all other officers, as provided, by Section 5 of the Primary Election Law, "shall not be held earlier than the first day nor later than the tenth day of August, on a date to be fixed by the State Executive Committee; and the second primary shall be held three weeks after the date of the first primary." Section 1 of the Primary Elec tion Law provides that "all pri mary elections shall be governed and regulated by the election laws of the State in force at the time the primary election is held, except as herein provid ed. The County Executive Committees at such primaries shall discharge the functions im posed upon County Election Com missioners, except as to provid ing the registration and poll book, and shall be subject to all the penalties to which County Election Commissioners are sub ject. The primary election offi cers appointed, by the Executive Committeess of the party shall have the powers and perform all the duties, where not herein otherwise provided, required of such officers in a general election, and any and every act or omis sion which by law is, an offense when committed in or about or in respect to such general elec tion, shall be an offense if com mitted in or about or iu respect to the primary elections held in pursuance of this act; and the same shall be indictable and pun ishable in the same way as if the same was a general election for the election of State and county officers. " Section 5 of the Primary Elec tion Law provides that "any can didate who receives a majority of the popular vote cast for the office for which he is a candidate iu the first primary shall be the nominee of the party for such office. In the case of a State or a district office, if no candidate receive a majority of such popu lar vote in the first primary, then the candidate who receives the highest popular vote for such office, by giving each county the same electoral vote that it has representation on the District Executive Committee, and by giving the electoral vote of the county to the candidate having the bighest popular vote- in the county, and shall be declared the nominee." Section 6 provides that "the County Executive Committee meet on the first or second day after the primary election; shall receive and canrass the returns, which must be made within the time fixed by law for the returns of general elections, and declare the result, announce the names of the nominees for county and district offices, and the names of these candidates to be submitted to a second primary. The vote for State and district offices shall be tabulated by precincts and certified to and returned to the District Executive Committee having charge of district nomi nations, and to the State Execu tive Committee those returns re lating to State offices, such re turns to be made by registered letter or any safe mode of trans mission, within thirty-six hours after the returns are canvassed and the result ascertained. The State and District Executive Committees shall meet a week from the day following the first primary election held for State and district offices, and shall pro ceed to canvass the returns and declare the result and announce the names of those nominated for the different offices in the first primaries, and the names of those candidates whose names are to submitted to the second primary election. State and District Ex ecutive Committees shaU also meet a week from the day on which the second primary elec tion is held and receive and can vass the returns for State and district officers, if any voted on at such second primary." Section 10 provides that "each political party shaJNdefray all ex penses incident '.a' its primary election, no such expenses being a charge on the State or county. The cost of printing ballots and transmitting ballot boxes and booths shall be fairly apportion ed by the County Executiye Com mittees among all the candidates voted for in such primaries, county and district candidates bearing their pro rata. The above expenses are the only ex penses chargeable against candi dates. No candidate for a State or district office shall be assess - ELECTION LAW. I ed more than each candidate for . county offices. " Section 11 provides that "the Chairman of each State and Con gressional Committee shall make and transmit to the Secretary of of State a tabulated statement of the whole and party vote cast in each county in each State and congressional election, respect ively." Section 20 provides that in case of epidemics prevailing in the State on the day for holding elec tion, the State Executive Com mittee whose primary election is thus interfered with, are author ized to fix different dates than those prescribed for holding the first and second primary elec tions and under the same regu lations. " Section 21 provides that "in an election for legislative, county and county district officers, no second primary election shall be held if all the candidates for any office agree in writing, filed with the Executive Committee before hand, that the candidate receiv ing the plurality of the votes cast for any particular office shall be declared the nominee of the party. " Section 22 provides that "on the second Monday of July prior to any regular election under this act the Commissioners of Elec tion shall meet at the office of the Registrar and carefully re vise the registration books and the poll books of the several elec tion districts, and shall erase therefrom the names of all per sons erroneously thereon, or who have died, removed or become disqualified as electors for any cause, and shall register the names of all persons who have duly applied to be registered and have been illegally denied regis tration. And no person shall vote at such primary whose name was not on the poll book when delivered to the manager of said primary election." "Talk About Your Babies" You ought to see mine.

THE COLUMBUS COMMERCIAL, Columbus, Miss. 4 r5 Mississippi Matters. The Newman saw mill and lumber plant at Hattiesburg, Miss., was destroyed by fire the past week. The loss is estimated at $75,000.00 and it has thrown 200 men out of employment seri ously hurting that enterprising city. Mrs. S. C. Johnson has en gaged Miss Clara Limbarger, of West Point. Miss Limbarger is just from Louisville, Ky., and other markets and is prepared to do first class trimming and will be glad to serve the ladies of Co lumbus and vicinity. Vicksburg is making elaborate preparations for the entertain ment of the Teachers' Associa tion which meets in that city on April 30. All the railroads have given assurances of reduced rates and it is expected that fully five hundred pedagogues will visit the Hill City then. Policeman James Blackwelland Chief of Fire Department Scur ry were shot down, the former killed and the latter badly wound ed, by a negro in Greenville last Monday night. The negro was named Doc Smith and he had shot a man named Allen at Gun nison and the officers were after him. They surrounded his house and when the smoke of battle cleared away the two officers were found shot do wo and the negro had escaped. Winona is to have a grand po litical pow wow on April 6th. All of the candidates for Governor have been invited to speak and it is reasonably certain that all will be there. The meeting, will be held in the cotton warehouse wherein started tha senatorial campaign between McLaurinand Allen four years ago and it is stated that several tiiousand peo ple will be present. It is believ ed that Senator Mc Laurin will also be present to address the meeting and there will be candi dates for the lesser offices with-M out number. It seems to be conceded over the State that Critz will ignore Fox's challenge for a joint pri mary in Clay county to deter mine the gubernatorial race be tween them. Crife -j friends say that the campaign has gone too far for such proceedings while Fox's supporters claimed that he has scored a point against his rival in the fight for Mississippi's highest honor. It is a conviction over the State that both Critz and Fox are loosing strength by their quarrel and it would not be surprising to see both sides now buckle down to te race regard less of the other fellow. Children's Coughs and Colds, Mrs. Joe McGrath, 327 E. 1st St., Hutchinson, Kan., writes: "I have given Bullard 's Horehound Syrup to my children for coughs and colds for the past four years, and find it the best medicine I ever used." Unlike many cough svrups, it contains no opium, but will soothe and heal any disease of the throat or lungs quicker than any other remedy. 25c, 50c and $1.00 at Curry, Lipscomb & Caine's. Gen. J. H. Sharp. It has been announced that Gen. Jacob H. Sharp, of Lown des county, had announced as a candidate for State Treasurer before the August primaries. A large number of the papers of the State have noticed this an nouncement and have given high ly complimentary notices of the distinguished candidate. The es ti (nation in which he is held by the Journal is known to all its readers and it would seem to be unnecessary for us to say any more than it has already said about him. But we desire to ap prise our readers of the fact that he is a candidate and to state that there are hundreds of his friends in this part of the State who will respond to this call upon them and give the old hero their hearty support. There is no man in in the State who deserves richer reward for his devotion to, and sacrifices for, her honor and welfare than he. He has served her nobly, both in war and peace, and has been unswerving in his fidelity and zeal in her behalf. In his private life he is without re proach and in all the require ments for the faithful discharge of the duties of the responsible position he is well and strongly equipped. If the people should call him to their service in ad ministering the States exchequer he will be found faithful, honest and incorruptible in the delicate task. Tupelo Journal.
