Great Political Debate. The meeting of those political gladiators. Senator H. D. Money and Gov. A. H. debate at the C Friday afterno the greatest pi held in the hist They are and high LfOngrno in a joint ourt House next moon will he one of t political events ever history of Columbus, candidates for a great office, the Office of United State Senator, Senator Money seeking to succeed him self and Gov. Longino trying to wrest the exalted honor from him. It is to be the opening of the Senatorial campaign, a cam paign which promises to become memorable in the political annals of the State and for that reason thousands will hear the Both gentlemen are well known to the people of Col ambus, Lown des county and Northeast Mis sissippi and their political re cords are familiar to all. Gov. Iaongino is rounding out his term of office as the chief executive of this "great commonwealth, lb has given to the people an ad ministration which his friends indorse; one which his opponents condemn and upon his adminis tration, his record in office, heis asking of his constituents ;i still greater honor. Senator Money is known to Mississippi, in fact to the nation, for he is a national character. He is not as closely identified with Mis sissippi politics as his opponent for the reason that his position and duties require his absence from the State most of the time. Like the Governor he is an able campaigner, a good debator. an interesting and forcible speaker and never fails to interest, in struct and entertain. The people of Columbus and the county must hear these dis tinguished men. This meeting will give them the opportunity of comparing them in point of ability, while a visit to Columbus Friday will enable them to meet many of the State's leading citi zens who are candidates for other State offices within their gift. Prominent among these will be Senator McLaurin, who comes here to mingle with his friends and followers and to speak if he can be induced to. Remember the date, Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Court House. Ladies are invited and expected. Gen. Jake Sharp will preside at the meeting. Sharp, Ala., Notes.
