SETTER MAIL AND PASSENGER SERVICE. The M. and O. Railroad is knif ing Columbus. The refusal of this road to have the main line midnight service extended to Columbus is costing this city thousands of dollars. We have reached that point, commercially, where this condition ought not to be allowed to continue any longer and the Citizens' League ought and will file a petition with the officials of the road asking that the brauch trains meet the miduight traius, that Columbus may reap the benefit of double daily service with the north and south. Commercial men are de manding it, our business inter ests require it and if the road persists in ignoring us the mat ter ought to be pressed before the railroad commission. There are a large number of traveling men who will move to Columbus and make headquar ters here if the double daily ser vice is extended to this city. A large number of these men would spend the Sabbath here if they could reach this city Sat urday night and leave here Sun day night. It is outrageous that with the great volume of busi ness done with St. Louis, Cairo and other points and the neces sity of better mail facilities that we have only one direct mail to these points in twenty-four hours. It is a manifest injus tice to the traveling public that they are forced out in the cold at Artesia in the dead of night to wait several hours to convenience the road in order to reach a point for which they hold a through ticket. It is a discrimination against Columbus for Macon, ! West Point, Okoldna and Tupelo to eniov these traffic facilities j while the largest and most im i portant city in Northeast Mis sissippi is denied them. The business men of Columbus should no longer tolerate this matter. They should bring their griev ance before the proper railroad officials. If they refuse to act the commission should be ap pealed to. Columbus exercises prestige and influence enough to secure relief. The Citizens' Progressive Lea gue has come into life born of the desire on the part of a few public spirited and patriotic men to help Columbus. The Dis patch calls their attention to this matter in the hope that they will become interested at once and give us relief. Saves Two From Death.

BEARD. THE COTTON MILL MOVEMENT. In an address before the New England Cotton Manufacturers Association in Boston a few days ago Lieut. -Gov. Lee in reviewing the industrial situation ii the New England States made the following significant statements: "He declared that in spite of competition New England he'd the sceptre of cotton manufac turers in this country and called attention to the facts which he said indicated one grave cause of unrest in this particular indus try. He quoted figures showing the increase in active cotton spindles iu the country from 1890 to 1900, and said it was idle to deny the fact that the rate of increase in the southwas much swifter than in New England. He gave further figures showing that the south, in comparison with New England pays five- eighths as many operatives, a little over a third as much wages for operating about a third as many spindles and said: Not proximity to cotton fields, not climate, but cheaper labor, long hours, together with utter ab sence of excitement, of extreme moderation of taxation explained the growth of the south. By the substitution o fine goods for the coarse goods in our factories Massachusetts has managed to put off the delay of settlement even to show an in crease, but ultimately the day of settlement must come and we must face and deal with condi tions that have reduced the spin dles in some of our northern states. Massachusetts, with the shortest time limit and th oid est age limit of any state iu the union, has to face the competi tion of states that limit uither age nor time. The solution of the problem is not in admitting ittle children in the Massachu setts mills, nor in lengthening the hours of Massachusetts, but here and now to begin a crusade that the demands of humanity, enforced by law in Massachu setts, shall be enforced by law in all the states. " 'Let us not drag Massachu setts down to the level of Ala bama, let us lift Alabama to the level of Massachusetts; let us have uniformity of laws through out the United States. It is idle for Massachusetts to stand alone with wise restrictions when Ala bama and South Carolina com pete with the toil of infant fingers against the labor of men and women. " The South wants no industrial ism at the expense of her socie ty nor one which will lower the standard of intelligence in the masses. In the benevolent wrork of protecting the child the next few years will see this section show a proper appreciation of the magnitude and importance of this question in the enactment of laws which will elevate Mis sissippi to the humanitarian plane of Massachusetts. But even with this advantage of la bor eliminated the South is in evitably to be the home of the greatest cotton manufacturing industry iu the world. The ad vantages of adequate capital, or ganization and capable manage ment which have conspired to sustain the industrial suprema cy of the East have followed the trend of the movement southward and the eastern spiuner has been driven to the manufacture of fine goods exclusively in the hope of sustaining his position. That inevitable doom awaits the cot ton manufacturing industry in the East is shown by the activity in the southern movement now, a movement which will bring mil lions of capital to this section within the next few years. m m m m VI ili ft il t it) M vl it it it) it it it Listen!
