The approaching session of the legislature, which will convene in Jackson about six weeks from the preoutt time, will be one of the most important ever held iu this state.

The question of a new capitol affirmatively decided ii the State Senate, and practically settled s far as that body, was concerned, during the regular session of 1896, and by tacit agreement, as it were, between the two h .uses iu the ses sion of 1807. it was left to the House of Representatives to formu late a measure for legislative enact ment. . 1 . if T ..i ihe '1 , is- V,u ai.le .!.'! ii tln-re !,,,t county ; ; , t nio the i!

All these suggestiqn9 and inter rogatories, randomly conjectured, materialized aud written, have taken the pith out of the capitol discussion, and shown us the plain pathway of dutiful obligation.

The Natchez fair, the only one to be held in the state this year, gives promise of being a grand suc cess and the managers feel very much encouraged by the many en trees of fine stock aud horses. There will be a good exhibit of cotton, machinery for its manufac ture, and all kind of farm produce as well as many uuiqe attractions in poultry. The fair will open up on Monday, Dec. 27th and will last six days. There will be rac ing of the fine horses every after noon during the whole fair. "Johnnie," our Artesia corres pondent, is one of the best farmers in the county as well as a good writer.

"Come again, Tohnnie, we are always glad to ste you." The agitating cow question has struck Meridian and the merchants want the municiple authorities to adopt the curfew ordinance against the cows within the city limits and make it a permanent law. Th would all be very welt if it were practicable, tut we are afraid that an innocent and hungry cow would not regard the six taps of the Cre bell if a wagon . loaded with hay stood iu its pathway home. If con sidered at all, the curfew order should include a clause, as well is a penalty, that each merchant shou'd see that bis cow was driven olf tie streets at six o'clock This would relieve the city autho.ities fcf niutii caie and many embataas- JUCliLi. From the hour that the Gover nor's message favoring the passage of a capitol bill was read to both houses of the Mississippi legisla ture of 1807, up to the announce ment, of the vote on the Governor's veto, was one of the most exciting episodes ever recorded in the an nals of State legislation. From the initiatory tactics of the House capitol committee on the plan of the building, down to the report of that committee on the Governor's veto, was one of the hardest pitched mental battles ever fought out in a legislative arena. Able arguments by conscientious lawvers were heard on the merits and demerits of the Governor's objections, with citation of author ities as to constitutional preroga tive. And it is flattery to none to sav that from the Chief Executive of our State down through the per sonnel of the membership of both Houses of that legislature, that e .cu ana an were governea Dy wuat was conceived to be honest con victions. Is it necessary that that -discussion should be indefinitely prolong ed, to the detriment and injury of the issues it involves? Is it needful that the State should be the loser by that extra ordinary session, or that the fruit of its agitation shou'.d be withered and lost? Is there such a divergence of opinion amongst the adherents, :m 1 opposers of the policy of the Governor, as to necessitate a dis ruption amongst the representa tives' of the people? Is there no middle ground of concesMon and accomplishment, where the extremes and the means can reach an agreement? Are we, the sworn agents of leg islative enactment, so derelict in our duties as to defy adjudication? Are the points of difference so many and so varied, as to leave us desperate, determined and unrea sonable?

He estimates the crop of the State on the convict farms as 3,000 bales of cotton; 25,000 bush els of cora and 5 000 bushels of peas, besides large qualities of hay, fodder, vegetables, etc. A $2 ,000 barn is being erected on the Rank in county farm and 1,000 acres of new land will be cleared on that f irm in time for next year's plant. On the Sharkey county place, which was almost wholly submerg ed, and where, in consequence, it was estimated only about 700 bales wouli be raised, it is now thought the yield will be between 1,100 and 1,200 bales.
