FOR SUPERVISOR FOR JUSTICE OF THE PEACE : 3. If. WAKEFIELD. I . I . K X I'l'R From Sunday's Paper. bpic ui' discussion in the State press the past week has been the remarkable opinion de livered last week by Attorney General Williams on the regis tration question. It has been shown that the Attorney-General's opinions are merely advisory they are not binding and in this deliverance this opinion was not even an official one. The Attorney-General must have realized that ho had inado a legal slip for he quickly gave counties which had ordered a new registration a "getting out place" by stating that old registrations could be used in the August election. But the feature of his ruling which attracted most discussion and criticism was his applica tion of constitutional provisions to a primary. Hon. Robt. E. Mays, of Copiah county, in one of the clearest and most logical legal opinions wo have read, shows conclusively the error of the Attorney-General's contention and Senator Noel, author of the pri mary law, is of the same opinion, In some counties the ruling caused the registrars to begin operations instanter, but in a great many counties the opinion was ignored. There seems to be no doubt but that citizens who are qualified electors in an elec tion are qualified to vote in the primary to make nominations for that election ami the party au thorities in this State should so hold. If one wants to realize the mag nitude of the growth and develop ment of Columbus a ride over the city will soon cause him to know what is going ou. Sectious which but a few years ago were open fields are nowdotted with houses, laid out in streets and have be come suberbs of this city. Col umbus is growing in all direc tions, industrially, commercially, educationally, morally and is des tined to become the greatest city in all this country. 0 X m 0 4 i gov Sale!

D0N0GHUE. ft ' m - The view expressed biT The DISPATCH that the ruling of the Attorney-General that a man had to be registered tour months be fore the August primary to be qualified voter in that primary would force counties where new registration had been ordered to use the old registration books is borne out by the Attorney-General in an opinion given out the I past week in which he states that it is the duty of the election (commissioner to place on the poll books the names of all qualified electors whether they are regis I tered on the old or the new reg istration. This will simplify the situation in this county very much, and save a large number of the people the necessity of reregistering.
