Pensacola and Memphis Railroad. The announcement contained in another column that the Illi nois Central Railroad had effect ed a traffic arrangement with the Frisco system whereby the lat ter 's tracks would be used from Aberdeen into Birmingham indi cates beyond a doubt that the efforts of the Illinois Central to get into the Magic City over their own line will be terminated. It means more. It means that the Canton & Aberdeen branch of this road, which has been re garded as a branch, will be put in fine condition and all of the advantages of this great system will be extended to this section. It sets at rest for a long time the threatened building of the branch across the northern end of our county into Alabama and renders all the more imperative a con nection between Columbus and this great system. This connecting line will be built in the road from this city to Aberdeen which has been chartered by local promoters and which will be taken up at once. Already efforts are being put forth to get the route sur veyed, and once located the work of securing the right of way and other grants necessary for the construction of the line will be undertaken. This line means everything to Columbus. It will give us connection with the Illi nois Central and the Frisco sys tem, two of the largest railroads in the South and will insure for Columbus fully one third of the enormous freights shipped to this city over both the Southern and the M. & O. and it will place this road in a position to handle almost exclusively the enormous shipment of grain, meats etc., from the great Northwest. It will solve the local situation admirably, giving us direct con nection with New Orleans, Mem phis, St. Louis, Cairo, Kansas City and Chicago and will secure for the vast commercial inter ests of Columbus and Lowndes county railroad competition with systems which cannot be merg ed, bought up or pooled and con trolled. To the people of the county it means everything. It will tra verse the country between Co lumbus and Aberdeen and will give them direct rail connection with both places. It means an enormous enhancement in the value of farm property north of us and the development of the vast timber and agricultural in terest of the Bigbee and Butta hatchie. For this reason the peo ple of the county as well as Co lumbus should sustain the ef forts of those who have gone into this project. It is feasable, thor oughly practical, is easy of con struction and it means that Co lumbus will greatly increase in population, material wealth, com mercial importance and will de velope into a great city. !

The official returns given out by the State Democratic Execu tive Committee shows that Hon. R. L. Bradley, of Jackson, lead the ticket for the position of Railroad Commissioner of the First District and that he will be in the secone primary against Maj. Mclnnis, of Meridian. It looks as if Mr. Bradley will have no trouble in defeating his opponent. Maj. Mclnnis has been in the office a number of years ana tne sentiment favor ing rotation is against him, while his administration has been largely in favor of Meri dian to the exclusion of the larg er interests of his district and this will operate against him in determining the second race. Mr. Bradley has a large number of friends in this city who re joice in his first victory and who hope he will prove victorious in the second.

The following telegram was received here on the morning of the election by a prominent citi zen, business man and Critz supporter: Canton, Miss., Augr. 6, 1963, Noel throws up sponge. Ad mits defeat. NotifjT all quick. (Signed) A. S. Handy. It had the marks of a cam paign lie stamped on its face and was takeu as such. Be it said to the credit of Senator Noel, he conducted his campaign on a high plane, run the race through and received a creditable vote, notwithstanding he had such misrepresentation and villiany as the above to coutend with. Boonville Banner. That is an exact copy of a tele gram received at Yazoo City on the morning of the election. Did Judge Critz or his campaign managers authorize Mr. Handy to send them all over the State? Under whose instructions was he working. Yazoo City Herald. Farmers' Institutes. The Institutes held at Hamil ton and Caledonia on the 14th and 15th of this month met with marked success. The places chosen for the meeting were in the first place well suited for such a gathering, large groves, overflowing wells and resulted in audiences interested in the questions to be discussed. At Hamilton the speaker's stand was erected under a wide spreading oak, the speakers for the occasion being Professors Loyd and Fox. Dr. E. M. Jamie son, of Caledonia, was called up on to act as chairman. In a few well chosen words he stated the object of the gathering and in troduced Prof. Loyd followed by Prof. Fox. These gentlemen ably discussed th agricultural prob lems that confront the farmer of to-day, showing themselves fa miliar with every phase of the question. Dinner being an nounced the meeting adjourned to partake of a sumptuous re past provided by Mr. Eugene Cantrell and his friend The afternoon was devoted to dis cussions of other questions Of vi tal importance to the successful farmer. Before adjourning Hon. Winston Houston, of Aberdeen, was introduced and for an hour eloquently discussed the political situation in the State. The meeting at Caledonia was but a repetition of the other in success and interest. Professors Loyd and Fox again addressed the audience and ably upheld their reputation as thoroughly practical thinkers and agricul turalists. It is an encouraging outlook for the farmers of Mississippi, the interest shown in these In stitutes. It denotes a desire for advancement and a knowledge of modern agricultural methods. To Enter Birmingham. Birmingham. Ala.. Aug. 10. It is learned on high authority that the Illinois Central railroad will be running trains into Bir mingham not later than October 1 and probably b fore that date. The trains will come here over the tracks of the St. Louis iVr San Francisco railroad from Ab erdeen, Miss., about 130 miles distant from this city. A con tract between the two roads has been signed to this effect, so it is stated. It is understood in the same connection that the Illinois Central has abandoned for the present the idea of building to Birmingham from a point on its main line near Jackson, Tenn. All the surveys for this propos ed line has been made by the way of Sheffield and rights of way were being secured, when an agreement was reached be tween the Frisco and the Illinois Central. The aj.ri cement involves the entrance of th New Orleans ovt i Central tracks, so return for which C into Birmingham o Visco into da Illinois i said, in 1 comes the Frisco tracks. In this connection the city council at its Birmingham next meeting will be asked to permit the closing of certain streets west of Eighteenth street and north of avenue A in order that the Illinois Central, the Frisco and the Seaboard Air Line may erect freight depots and etablish freight yards in that part of the city. The Frisco will locate a new depot on Pow ell avenue and Eighteenth street. The Seaboard depot will be in the same vicinity, and the three roads together will spend up ward of three-quarters of a mil lion in freight yard terminals. There will be a very close rela tionship here between the three lines. The Frisco owns the Bir mingham Belt railroad, and this property will operate especially in the interest of the three lines named. The Illinois Central, as evidence of the plans as outlined above, has already established a commercial agent here, having removed the office heretofore lo cated in Atlanta to this city. .
