ANNUAL MEETING DELEGATES FROM MANY 8EC TIONS IN ATTENDANCE. S' Merging of All Liberal Faiths Is One 9l the Subjects to Be Discussed, but V Jo Definite Action Is Expected, ^ne Great Church the Hope. Associated Press. New York, October 18.—Universa lists from all over the country are in New York today in attendance at the biennial session of the general conven tion of the denomination. A big meet ing of laymen and a woman's mission ary meeting will be features of the convention. The report of the secre tary shows that the denomination has invested a fund of $40,000, the income of which is used to support home and foreign missions. Among other reports received waB a highly favorable one from the Jap anese mission, which was established fifteen years ago. The Universalist faith has proved particularly attrac tive to the upper class and educated Japanese, and the denomination is growing by leaps and bounds In the flowery kingdom. It supports a cen tral school and church in Tokio and many churches in other cities of the empire, the pulpits of which are sup plied for the most part by Japanese clergymen. The Universalist general convention has jurisdiction over the ecclesiasti organiza'ttons of the Universalist ^^^Bhurch In the United States and the ^^^tanadlan provinces, an meets bien nially. The convention is composed of the presidents, vice presidents and secretaries of the state convention, and of clerical and lay delegates appointed by the state bdoies. All laws relating to fellowship, ordination and discipline originate in the general convention, and it is the final court of appeal in all cases of difficulty or dispute be tween state conventions. One of the most interesting sub jects to be considered, although no definite action is expected, is that of the merging of all liberal faithB, in cluding the Unlversallsts' an Unitar ians. The recent international liberal congress in Boston did much toward -fostering sucli a movement, and it is the opinion of many influential Uni A versalist clergymen that the day is not far distant when all the liberal and ethical religious bodies of the country will be consolidated Into one great or ganization. in r ffj NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC No other party or parties than our selves are authorized to contract bills, or in any way transact business con nected wtih the Majestic Roller Rink and we are not responsible in any way for them if so contracted.

Jackson, Miss., October 18.—A doz en or more candidates have appeared in the field for the minor positions within the gift of the two branches of the legislature, and the contests for sergeant-at-arms and door-keep ers promise to be especially spirited, with perhaps a half dozen aspirants for each place. It has been the custom for several years to elect indigent Confeder ate veterans as doorkeepers, and this custom will doubtless prevail at the coming session. Each body is al lowed a sergeant-at-arms and a post mistress, and the latter places always provoke lively contests, exceptionally good pay being attached to the posi tions, with comparatively little work to perform. The election of Hon. L. Pink Smith as clerk of the lower house is assured Hon. John Y. Murray, Jr., the present incumbent, has only one opponent for secretary of the senate. The two houses in joint session will elect a state librarian for a four-year term, and thus far the present occu pant of that position, Miss Mattie Plunkett, has no opposition, nor does it appear likely that she will be op posed for the place, owing to the ex ceptional character of the services she has rendered during the past eight years.

Jgates of the Compress Trust Are Al most Prohibitive. Daily Ne'iVs Special. Jackson, M,iss, October 18.—Not withstanding the explanation made by President C. C. Hanson, of the Gulf Compress Company, that the advance In rates was ordered prior to the re cent anti-trust litigation, made necessary by the fact that no revenue was being earned plants of the corporation in this state, cotton men are still protesting vigor ously against what they regard as cesslve charges for service. The advance of rates ampunts to Shout 33 1-3 and was on the ex per cent., as compared with last year's tariff, ant on several items of service is much higher. For Instance, in 1906 the rate for handling cotton, turning down and setting out bales, etc., was 5 cents per bale. This year it is 25 cents per bale. For a second or subsequent setting out of cotton for grading or sampling is 5 cents per bale. The charge for reweighing when worked on the edge is 10 cents; re sampling 5 cents; storage after sixty days, 25 cents; delivering uncom pressed cotton to wagons or loaded on cars, 35 cents; patching cotton with bagging furnished by shippers, 3 cents per bale; applying second hand bagging, from 9 to 29 cents per bale; new bagging, from 16 to 40 cents per bale. It is apparent that the advances or dered will take a large sum of mondy out of the pockets, of the farmers in this state, and they feel that they are justified in entering a, vigorous complaint. IBS WORK WILL BEGIN ON BIG CREMATORY MAYOR DONALD GETS LETTER FROM CONTRACTORS.

The crematory will be located on the corner of Fifth and New Orleans streets and the lot has already been cleaj-ed and prepared for the erection of the plant. Mayor Donald Is in receipt of a let ter from Lewis & Kitchen, of Chi cago. of whom the crematory was purchased, stating that shipments are being made and that they will have a man on the ground at once to erect the plant. This is something that has been needed in Hattiesburg for a long while and will go farther toward improving the health of the city than anything else could possibly do.

The question of how to cure a cold without unnecessary time is one in which we are all more or less inter ested, for the quicker a cold is gotten rid of the less the danger of pneu monia and other serious diseases.

He Will Return In December to Pre pare for the Meeting of the Legis lature, When He Will Have Suffi cient Work for a while. Daily News Special. Jackson, Miss., October 18.—Hon. Luther Manship, Mississippi's newly elected lieutenant governor, and one of the best known lecturers on the American platform, will leave Monday for his regular autumn and winter lec ture tour through the northern and eastern states. His bookings will keep him busy until the latter part of December, when he will return to the capital and get ready for the legisla tive session. Mr. Manship will assume the duties of lieutenant governor in January un trammeled by pledges. He was elected to the office by a very decisive major ity, and from the moment his formal announcement was made until the votes were counted it was apparent that victory was certain. The most important task of the new lieutenant governor after taking the oath of office will be the selection of the standing committees of the senate, and this is a duty he will perform with exceptional care and judgment, realiz ing that the volume and character of work performed by the lawmaking body will largely depend on the per sonnel of the standing committees. A Certain Cure for Croup—used for Ten Years Without a Failure. Mr. W. C. Bott, a Star City, Ind., hardware merchant, Is enthusiastic In his praise of Chamberlain's Cough Remed. His children have all been subject to croup and he has used this remedy for the past ten years, and though they much feared the croup, his wife and he always felt safe upon retiring when a bottle of Chamber lain's Cough Remedy was In the house. His oldest child was subject to severe attacks of croup, hut this remedy never failed to effect a speedy cure. He has recommended It to friends and neighbors and all who have used it say that it is unequalled for croup and whooping cough. For sale by Hays & Field and the Yellow Pine Pharmacy.
