NEW YORK SOCIETY IS ANXI0U8

Requests Secretary of 8tate Power to
Furnish Information Regarding the
Manner in Which the Mississippi
Legislature Does Business.
Daily News Special.
League club of New York City,
through its sub-committee on Politi
cal Reform, is anxious to have some
further information regarding the
meetings of the legislature of this
state and the methods employed in
Mississippi for expediting legislation
and disposing of the vast amount of
chaff that is always thrown into the
It appears that
October 7.—The Union
New York's legislature sits often for
six months at a time. The secretary
of the committee on Political Reform,
has addressed a letter to Secretary of
State Power requesting fuller infor
mation regarding the length of ses
sions of the legislature and the meth
ods of procedure, and also the public
sentiment of the state on biennial ses
sions and the results of our experience
Mississippi seems to have
been singled out especially for the
benefit of her experience in holding
only one regular session of the legis
lature every four years, with an in*
tervening special session for passing
revenue and appropriation matters
and such urgent and important mat
ters as the governor may recommend.
The committee especially desires to
know whether there is any advantage
attached to limiting the sessions of
the legislature. The committee was
advised that the experience of this
state on the special session has not
made the scheme popular, on account
of the fact that the authority given
the governor to recommend legisla
tion, as a rule turns the specilal ses
sion almost into a regular one, and
at least does not make the session any
shorter. There is a sentiment in the
state for changing the plan to the
extent of taking out of the governor's
hand the right to extend the session
indefinitely and provide that a ma
jority vote of the two bodies shall be
required to extend the session and
discuss or pass upon any given topic
subject of legislation.

Daily News Special.
Jackson, October 7.—The revival of
interest in Hie Columbus, Memphis &
Pensacola Railroad company, which
was incorporated about two years ago,
has borne fruit of a substantial na
ture, if statements from parties inter
ested can be accepted. The road as
originally incorporated provided for a
line between Memphis and Pensacola,
running through Columbus, Mississip
pi. The people of Columbus took con
siderable interest in the project and
a delegation of the incorporators wen*
to St. Louis to discuss the proposed
road wtih the ofTicals of the Frisco
system, in the hope of getting that
company interested, and it was de
signed to extend the K. C. M. B. or
rather a branch of it through Colum
bus and on down through the Tom
bigbee Valley. Although the scheme
met with some encouragement from
the Frisco people at that time, the
matter was later on dropped.
Recently, however, there has been a
revival of interest In the line and at
a recent meeting of the stockholders
it was decided for certain reasons
which have not been given to the
public, to change the name of the road
and the route also,
changes, it is believed, are due to the
fact that some other syndicate has
taken up the project. The route is to
be changed, according to amendment
adopted it shall extend through the
counties of Chickasaw, Monroe and
Lowdnes in a southerly direction so
as to cross the state line between
Mississippi and Alabama at a point
near the southeast corner of Lowdnes
county and thence into Alabama. This
route carries the road through' a
longer stretch of Mississippi territory
than the original route which went al
most due east from Columbus into
Alabama. The name of the company
was also changed from Columbus.

Spain's Popular Beverage.
"Horcbata de chufa" Is the singular
name of the most popular drink In
Madrid. This is made from a nut
called "chufa," yielding a milky liquid
when reduced to a pulp. Tills Is di
luted with water and forms a most
cooling and refreshing drink. How
ever, It is an acquired taste. Very few
like It at the first trial. The horehata
may be made from different kinds of
nuts. The almond is used also. Strange
to relate, the horcbata de chufa is al
ways sold where matting is kept for
sale, so that when you spy a roll of
the latter outside the store door it is
a sufficient Indication that in that par
ticular place you may procure a glass
of the horehata. In spite of Inquiries,
