Thus far in the new year not a .single lynching has occurred in Mississippi. This is caused large ly by the fact that the law against criminals is being enforced. More death sentences have been handed down by the courts in the last year than for any two previ of at for fence all ous ye "' s "",T' S his!or the war, and the govern or thus far has extended executive _ j clemency to very few. But the ! greatest reason there' have been Ä nw inching» this year is abscencc 0 f cause for SUch action. Tile citizens of tiiis state are law-abid ins and, never resort to illegal hangings except under great p ro vocation, and then they do just a s the people of other states do. The Memphis Morning News, though not yet one year old, is one of the best newspapers in the South, and still continues to im prove. Its editorial policy meets with the approval of the majority of Southern people, and its news service is excellent. The Louisville Courier-Journal safely predicts that "if the Mis souri minister who threatens to tell the truth at funerals carries out his threat there will probably lie a funeral at which he will fig ure otherwise than a preacher." Judge L. Brame, a prominent member of the Hinds county liar, and a lawyer of ability, has an nounced himself as candidate for attorney general in opposition to William Williams. Twelve alleged whitecappers were indicted at the recent term of the Franklin county court, and placed under $2000 bond, each to appeaa at next term of court. Simply a Campaign Tour. The fact that President Roose velt carries but two secretaries, one doctor, three stenographers, three messengers, two secret ser vice men, one poet-naturalist, representatives of three press associations, representatives of three illustrated papers one offi cial photographer and two tele graph operators and will make but 200 speeches rather gives a quietus to the notion that his Western trip is to be anything but an unpretentious little outing for the purpose of avoiding pub licity.—Washington Post. To Prevent House-to-House Canvass. In a good many counties there is a qniet movement on foot among tee farmers to curtail the ravages of the candidates for county offices as much as possi ble in view of the fact that their time is imperatively demanded by their corps, They seem to regard the descent of a score of candidates or so as equivalent to the locusts of Egypt in destruc tiveness. It is stated that in some of the counties the candi dates, in consideration of the conditions existing among the farmers, have agreed among themselves that they will make no regular canvass, but will fore go the hunt for voters and take their several chances without the customary electioneering. The patriotic editor of the Carthag« - niau calls for a similar reform in Leake county. He states that nearly every farmer in Leake county is buying corn and the caravan of candidates and their horses must work more or less hardship in every community wherein they make their raid. He slates that the hospitality of the citizens is well' known, and while ho thinks it would show no diminution, even under such un favorable circumstances,.yet the fact remains that the visits bf the numerous candidates would be more or less of an imposition. The next Legislature will doubt less formulate some sort of an amendment to the primary law to prevent this great and growing imposition on the qualified elec tors of the state.—Jackson Bu reau Times Democrat. „ „ R. or Notice to Contractors. In accordance with an order of the Board of Supervisors of DeSoto county. Miss., made at the April term. 1903. said board will on Monday, May 4th, 1903, let out the contract for the erection of a steel wire or steel picket fence around the courthouse yard.

Old Hughey is on the sick list and has been for the past three days, but thinks he will be able to turn old Beck next week. Corn that was planted ten days ago is growing nicely. Some cotton planted last week, but the heavy rains will stop the farmers for awhile. The farmers are anxious for the road contractors to get dow r n this way. The roads are needing work. Our old ex-sheriff W. H. Rol lins was at the Corner last Friday with the registration books. He found three that registered. DeSoto county has quite a nutn ber of candidates for office, all good men. I wish they could all be electee, but that is impossible. Those who get left must do like Old Hughey when he gets left— take it arid «ro on like nothing h: d happened. I notice very often that it is not the worst men that get beat by a long shot. We want the candidates to set some dav and all meet at Lake Vit-vv and eat fish and have a good time.
