MAJ. VAROAMAN'S CARD. Greenwood. Aug. 29. Major James K Vardaman to day gave out the following: To the White Democrats of Missis sippi: While the result of the pri mary of the 27th inst. has not been announced, it is appareut from the returns that I have been nominated by a majority of not less than 7,000 votes. I take this method of expressing my gratitude to my friends who. like the old guard, have stood so loyally by me in the very vortex of calumny, vituperation and misrepresentation which has characterized the campaign just closed. It has been a hard fought battle, and every inch of ground has been stubbornly con tested, but my friends have won a great victory. To them all the credit is due. If I shall be able to prove myself worthy of their esteem and confidence I shall be satisfied. God bless them. (Signed.) Jas. K. Vardaman. Already in certain quarters defects in the primary law are being pointed out and it is being objected to. This was to be ex pected. A measure which took so much power from the few and gave it to the many was calcu lated to cause a vigorous protest from those who are shorn of their power. The primary is alright and after its electoral feature is eliminated it will be one of the wisest and best laws ever placed upon our statute books making the people directly responsible for the character of men selected to serve them in office. The friends of the primary should be on their guard and if any attempt to nullify and repeal it is made at the next session of the legis lature it must be defeated. The executive committee of the trustees of the Mississippi Agricultural and Mechanical Col lege met at the College last Fri day and elected Prof. J. C. Her bert to the Chair of History and Civics to succeed Prof. J. M. White, who resigned to go into business at West Point, Miss. Prof. D. C. Hall was elected to succeed Prof. Herbert as profes sor in charge of the preparatory department. J. D. Broadbent, acting director of the textile school, tendered his resignation, which was accepted. JNo oue was elected to succeed him. Edgar S. Wilson, the Republi can referee, is fast losing out in Mississippi. His connection with the Roosevelt administration helped to defeat Longino, helped to elect Vardaman and on top of it all the New Orleans Picayune, whose Mississippi department he has conducted for years, an nounces that henceforth the Re publican referee will not be con nected with it. This looks like rubbing it in. Take life as it comes and make the most of all circumstances, but for a bad cough or cold take Ballard s Horehound Syrup, the best known remedy for quick relief and sure cure. Price 25 and 50 cents.

Pete Williams, a colored brake- man on the Southern Railway, in attempting to climb on the caboose of a moving train last Monday afternoon fell under the train and had his leg so badly crushed that amputation was ne cessary. Drs. Davis and Me Kinley operated on the injured man and removed the injured member. An excursion to Birmingham. Ala., last Monday morning car ried hundreds from this city notwithstanding the awful ex perience which some had last year on a similar trip. The pleas ure seekers were mostly negroes and they expected to enjoy them selves in Birmingham and return last night. Dr. R. S. Curry's friends are pleased to note that he is rapid ly recovering from his recent ill ness and that he takes his politi cal defeat pleasantly and with ill feelings towards none. Dr. Curry has resumed his practice and will devote his time and talents exclusively to his profession in the future. Notice to Water Consumers.

Two factors have won the con test against the conservatism of of the State; and they are these: First The personal magnetism of a candidate, which could not be brooked by argument for the good of the State. Second "Damn the nigger. ' This latter slogan is the sentiment of the state of Mississippi, aud of every State in the South from Virginia to Texas. The States of the North now know it, and if not will be thoroughly convinced henceforth. From Meridian Press, one of Critz's most ar dent supporters. If he has been nominated for Governor, as the press dis patches seem to indicate, we are quite sure that he will give Mis sissippi the most brilliant and successful administration it has had in years. It has been charg ed that Major Vardaman is too radical in his views, and that he lacks conservatism and all that kind of thing, but it is safe to say that the official responsibili ty which the Governorship will impose upon him will furnish the proper check and cause him to be just, conservative and tem perate in the discharge of the duties of his high and honorable office. From New Orleans States, Vardaman. This is the greatest aud most beneficial political victory won in Mississippi since the Radicals were driven from power about a quarter of a century ago. The Wilson-Longino-Critz Roosevel t combination, which has been so signally defeated, is a more harmful political force than were the Radicals under Ames. Ames was a brave soldier and an hon orable gentleman, and many ex cuses are to be made for him because of the extraordinary and abnormal political conditions which prevailed soon after and as a consequence of the great civil war. Ames was not a boodler; he did not attempt to prostitute the Judiciary of the State, and he was not a traitor to his party. Vicksburg Post, strong for Vardaman. The proposition of Maj. Var daman to divide the school fund among the races according to the amount each race pays, will never be enacted into law and the agitation of the question, we feel, was unfortunate, but it was discussed and played its part in the campaign. It is now the duty of all good Democrats to support the nominee of the Democratic party; it is also the duty of all good citizens to sus tain the incoming Governor in all his efforts to maintain the su premacy of the race that must be and will be supreme, and to up hold the law and the courts at all times L. Pink Smith in Greenville Democrat. Smith was against the Major but it is all over now and he is as loyal as any man in the party. Col. Hiram Henry, who, after he had landed his brother Auditor, proceeded to shell the Vardaman camp, climbs grace fully up in the following: The campaign has been a strange one and has had lugged into it mat ters that had no business there. It has been fought on extraneous issues magnified ideas that have alarmed and excited the people. The negro, Roosevelt, his Southern appointees, rings etc., have been called upon to do service, and they have been used to great advantage. But that is past. Let it sleep. Let us forget the pangs of defeat and look hopefully to the future wel fare of this State, which is great er than the ambition of any man. The Clarion Ledger hopes that the administration of the new Governor may be a success, that it may be conducted with an eye single to the glory, the honor and the prosperity of the State. There is one one remark of many that are suggested, which is to be made here. And that is to pay tribute to the fortuitous chance that denied to Major Vardaman the victory in the first primary by a plurality. His opponents would, then, never have ceased harping upon his not representing a majority of the white voters of the State. And this would to a certain ex tent have diminished the influ ence of his administration. As it is, his personality and his po sition upon the race question, in so far as it antagonizes that of the President, have been em phatically approved. Negro writers and the Referee Wilson white syndicate, can now sub side. They have been over whelmed under a majority which, according to the returns up to midnight, is more apt to be over than under 10,000. Vardaman 's gains, thanks to the Minnie Cox Wilson black and white editors, have not been limited to the Noel forces Critz's camp has been ravaged all over the State.

The hitherto good propect for an abundant yield of the cotton crop in this section has been greatly damaged and as a result it is believed that the crop will be cut off to a large extent by the causes operating against it at present. In some sections the army worm, shedding and rust are do ingthe plant infinite damage and farmers and planters are great ly alarmed at the prospect. The cold weather of the past week has retarded the growth and de velopment of the plant and it is opening faster than is desired On the whole, the prospect is gloomier than it has been for some time. Extreme hot weather is a great tax upon the digestive power of babies; when puny and feeble they should be given a dose of White's Cream Verm ifuge. Price, 25c. Curry, Lipscomb & Caine.

Its service extends all over Columbus' territory in town, in Lowndes County, and in the adjoining counties of Mississippi and West Alabama. It maintains genuine and aggressive competition, giving the public bet ter service at a lower rate than existed before it was established. Therefore, Columbus' rates are lower than any other city of its size in the State. The present good service and low rates have been obtained only through its competition.

R. L. Bradley in the sec ond railroad commissionership's district is still endeavoring to de feat him notwithstanding the voice of the people of the district has unmistakably given him the nomination. A special from Jackson to the daily press states that it has been discovered that Mr. Bradley had not paid some of his taxes by February 1st and, consequently, was not a qualified elector and could not hold the office. He was in the city yesterday on a visit to friends here but left on the morning train for Jackson, where he will attend the meet ing of the State Executive com mittee. Those who know him, without hearing his explanation of this latest move of his opposi tion, are confident that there is nothing in it and that he will have no trouble in proving his claim to the office.
