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
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
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

fields are nowdotted with houses,
laid out in streets and have be

tions, industrially, commercially,
educationally, morally and is des
tined to become the greatest city

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.

It involves the right of the State
to tax the foreigu loan companies
doing business in this State. As
the people know numerous syn
dicates have been loaning money
in Mississippi and they have paid
no tax or license. The revenue
agent is endeavoring to tax these.
The amount of money loaned iu
this State by these concerns is
estimated at between ten aud
fifteen million dollars and the
taxes ou the same, if recoverable,
will amount to between $1,000,
000 and $1,500,000.

ways find a tenant.
We present this morning the
announcement of Capt. H. D.
Foote as a candidate for the po
sition of justice of the peace in
this, the second district. Capt.
Foote is one of the best known
men in this city with hosts of
friends and will be a formidable
candidate for the position for
which he is a candidate. He has
beeu a citizen of Columbus for
the past quarter of a century, is
a man of integrity and intelli
gence and has tilled this position
acceptably to the people in the
past, resigning a few years ago
on account of the pressure of
business engagements. If again
elected he will administer the
duties of the office with justice
and fairness to all alike, and up
on this platform he solicits the
support of his fellow citizens.
