the presidents, vice presidents and

and it is the final court of appeal in

One of the most interesting sub

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

with perhaps a half dozen aspirants
for each place.
It has been the custom for several
years to elect indigent Confeder

custom will doubtless prevail at the
coming session. Each body is al

The advance of rates ampunts to

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

of the best known lecturers on the

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

Of course, the printers' ink must be mixed with the best
