VW ENTYFOURTft YEAR. OOLUMBUS, MISSISSIPPI, THURSDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 10, 1903 PRICE: FJA K ( LISTS The Dispatch. Kntered at theColumbas postofflce for trans minaion through the mails as second-class matter. US. i. C. MAfcR Proprietor. From Sunday's Paper. The recent primary served to accomplish one end and that was to betray to the people of the State the brazen trafticry in the judiciary under Lougino's ad ministration. The pernicious ac tivity in political matters of cer tain judicial appointees and the subsequent reward of others who rendered faithful service to the Governor's cause has focused attention on this evil and has aroused public indignation to such an extent that their confir mation by the next senate is seriously in doubt. The prosti tution of the judiciary is the greatest danger to human rights and liberty that we know of and when political considerations are the chief recommendation and fitness and capacity are trampled under foot, the good name of Mississippi, her institutions and her civil life are in bad way. It should be the pleasure as well as the duty of the people's repre sentatives in the next legislature to repudiate such disreputable deals and to set the standard high for an incorruptible and un impeachable bench in Mississip pi, Mr. Frank L. Bellinger, of Jackson, has been placed in charge of the Mississippi depart ment of the New Orleans Pica yune, a fact that thousands of the readers and patrons of the Picayune are glad to learn. Mr. Bellinger isa conscientious news paper man, a careful observer, a good writer and has the faculty of imparting his impressions of men and matters in a happy way. Under his administration the Picayune will regain its prestige and following in Mississippi and its Mississippi department will be sustained in a handsome way. Ten thousand people greeted Vardaman in the great demon stration in honor of the nominee at Meridian last Wednesday. There was a good old fashioned torch light parade, bands and banners and a fine speech. It was the largest political demon stration Meridian has witnessed in years. The Clarion-Ledger notes the fact that Col. Levy wired his con gratulations to the nominee and says the message should have come from Judge Critz. And so it should. It would have been a graceful act upon his part. Forrest Runnells is now at the helm on the Vicksburg American and keeps things humming.

The special train of three ; coaches dubbed the "Vardaman Special, '' gaily decked with ban ; ners and streamers, rolled out of I the Southern depot in this city last Friday morning at nine ! o'clock with two hundred of the Major's enthusiastic follow ers, representing both this city ana the county aboard. The train was in charge of Conductor W. S. Cranford and Engineer : Wade Lynch and it was placard led with appropriate banners. On one coach was a temendous rooster crowing while on the other coaches was "Columbus Vardaman Club" in large letters. The run to West Point was made without incident and here the people were made aware of the approach of the Vardaman shout- ers by the cheering and salutes given the various steam plants of West Point by Engineer Lynch at the throttle. Delegations were picked up at Eupora, Ma ben, Winona and Carrollton and when Greenwood was reached the train was crowded. Here the crowd disembarked and forming in parade was es corted to the opera house. When the assembly was seated Master Arden Ackert was escorted to the stage by Mr. Walter Weaver and in the sweetest and purest voice sang a little song ending up with the name "Vardaman," which was the signal of such an ovation as has seldom been seen. Major Vardaman came forward and made a splendid and telling speech. Flushed with the en thusiasm of victory he swept the stage with the splendor of his personality and his oratory. He began by saying that the message which old Lowndes had sent him could not have been told in a sweeter way than was done by that lovely boy and the memory of the kindness of the people of Columbus and this county to him had rendered him profoundly grateful. He said that the victory recently won was not due to him but it was to principles he represented and that if he could but carry out these principles which he be lieved were for the preservation of our institutions, our society and our government, the cup of his ambition would be filled to overflowing. He renewed the statement that he went into office untiammeled with a single promise and he said that he would not use the office of Gov ernor to reward a friend or pun ish an enemy at the expense of the public service. He said he expected to be Governor of Mis sissippi, a statement which was greeted with resounding cheers. Major Vardaman spoke at some length along this line and he was the recipient of ova tion after ovation as the telling and forcible and beautiful pas sages of his speech were de livered. When he had concluded there were loud calls for Lieut. Gov ernor Harrison and Judge Har rison took the stand. He told of the campaign in Lowndes county and why he had espoused the cause of Major Vardaman and he paid a glowing tribute to the nominee after which Congress man Shed Hill was called for and responded in a short speech. An adjournment was then taken and an informal reception was held in which every man present had the pleasure of meeting Major Vardaman again. Re freshments followed and after dinner Greenwood was turned over to the visitors who took the town. It was late in the after noon when the return trip was undertaken and M r. Vardaman, Congressman Hill, Mr. Will S. Barry and others from Green wood accompanied the party as far east as Winona. The reception given to the visi tors by the people of Greenwood was certainly hospitable and every provision was made for their comfort and pleasure. Major Vardaman, his brother, Mr. Will Vardaman, Mr. Fred Barry and hosts of others were especially attentive and kind to the visitors and their thought fulness and consideration was greatly appreciated. The special reached Colum bus at half-past ten Friday night and the enthusiasts alighted and gave three rousing cheers for the nominee and one of the most re markable trips in tne history of State politics had ended. Con ductor Cranford, Engineer Lynch aud Train Master Ackert gave every attention to their guests on the trip and did every thing in their power to make the occasion enjoyable. To Be Expected. Jackson, Miss., Aug. 31. It is the concensus of opinion here that the present primary election law is a delusion and a snare, and that the next Legislature. the very first that has been elect ed under its provisions, will be called upon to repeal or to amend it very materially. It is known here that Governors and United States Senators were traded off for Beat Constables and Justices of the Peace and there is a strong demand for the State and the county primary elections shall be held on different days if there are to be primaries at all. There are a great many who would gladly turn back to the old-fashioned countv and State method of selecting candidates for office. One of Vardaman s Best Friends. As the smoke of the political battle clears away and the many friends of Maj. J. K. Vardaman are given credit for their part in the Vardaman fight the loyal ser vice of the gallant W. S. Barry, of Greenwood, son of a former Congressman, should not be for gotten. He was true to Major Vardaman and stood a willing supporter to his chief. He said a few weeks ago, 'Major Varda man must be elected," and while Greenwood was in her glory last Saturday Mr. Barry said, "my cup ot happiness is lull, Jim Vardaman is the next Governor of the proud old commonwealth; he bears a banner without a spot and his administration will be as pure as heaven's snow Vicks burg Post.

Mr. Neilson reports a great de priciation in the crop prospect and expressed the opinion that nis section will not make more cotton than was made last year. Rev. J. A. Poe has lately closed a meeting of a week's duration at Mt. Pleasant. In this meeting Rev. Poe was ably assisted by Rev. J. B. Randolph, who labored faithfully throughout the week.

The hot sultry days and the cold nights are playing havoc with the plant and it is shedding and rusting badly.

Mississippi's new capitol has been virtually completed and is awaiting the removal of the State officers into it. The last legisla ture made no provision for main taining the capitol and the Gov ernor will probably be compelled to borrow money to run it until the legislature meets. Brooks Story, the famous out law who uses the Mississippi penitentiary as a place of rest escaping and returning at will, has just disappeared from .the wails for the fifth time. Brooks tired of the Rankin farm the past week and waiked off. No doubt he will return after a reas onable absence. The Meridian Press, which was established a few years ago with a capital of fifty thousand dollars and which had a fine field with good railroad schedules and able and capable and experienced men at its head, has suspended. It requires money to run a news paper, even a semi-weekly and weekly, much less a daily. Jas. H. Coleman, Pickensville, Ala., has laid in a large stock of the finest whiskeys with the view of serving the people of Co lumbus and Lowndes county. He solicits a trial order. Tele phone and goods will be shipped same day. 9-2-tf Brown Closes Out. New York, Sept. 2 W. P. Brown, the New Orleans king of cotton, to-day closed his great corner. He has exchanged his spot cot ton for above $7,000,000 in spot cash. He has laid down the crown where anybody who thinks he can wear it may pick it up. Theo aore n. jrice nas laia nanas on 1 T-w- T-a a -a m , the crown, having placed him sol . 1 1 - o as i ai tne neaa or a big bear poo which will operate through the firm of S. Meld & Co. Daniel J. Sully, who became celebrated last spring when he maae aoove pz,uuu,uuu in a cor ner on March cotton without the outlay of a single dollar of origi nal money, is out of the market entirely, believing, with Mr Brown, that the future course of prices is a matter of chance Both Mr. Brown and Mr. Sully stand ready to spring into the pit and do battle for the leader ship as soon as the trend of the market is proved with reasonable certainty. brown's strategy Brown had but a few thousand bales yet to unload when the market opened. Deciding to clean up, he went in and bought September options freely, bid ding for 10,000 bales at a time. At the same time he had a score of brokers selling. At the sight of the cotton king buying in per son, shorts run to cover and the cotton they got was Brown stuff. After running the price of September up from 11.45 to 11.68 or $1.15 a bale, Mr. Brown fairly smothered the room with as a result, for the wole cotton trad ing and consuming world was left with the suspicion that the Brown pool was loading up for another long campaign whereas the exact reverse was true. There are seven men in the pool proper; Mr. Brown has been the leader, but F. P. Hayne and H. D. Vincent have been heavily interested. T. J. Majors, Ma son Smith, C. C. Cordell and F. L. Lonshore are holders of small interests. Of course there have been tailers who have made sev eral millions more, but the pool only proper was composed of seven men. Real Estate Transfers.
