ASHLEY. -4 Which is Mightier, the Government or the Railroads? Much has been said by the press and many public men in criticism ol the speech delivered by •\V. J- Bryan in Madison Square Garden upon his return from a tour over the world. In that speech, among other things, Mr. Bryan said after mature delibera tion for over two years lie had reached the conclusion that the government would ultimately have to own the different'railroads of the country : that the railroads deliberately and persis tently defied the laws of the land, throttled legislation in congress, de bauched the ballots, and controlled by means of great wealth many senators and representatives, possible for legislation to be enacted that would confine the railroads to their true sphere, and in the same speech, Mr. Bryan said that he did not know if the time was now ripe, or the people prepared for this step, hut that it was sure to come unless the railroads could he checked. Forthwith there arose a mighty howl throughout the country, all the Republican newspapers and many Democratic ones, assailing Mr. Bryan fiercely, and charging him with the rankest socialistic doctrines. Since then, at Louisville, Ky., a masterly speech delivered there, Mr. Bryan went more fully into details as to his position on the railroad question. He said that he would not seek to con trol the action of the party upon that point, and that while he believed the railroads would ultimately have to he owned by the government, he favored first the effort to regulate them, and failing in this, then the government should own them. Mr. Bryan's posi tion is right.

This the 17th day of Sept., 1906. to see t lit) government now assume this great undertaking, still, in the interest of all the i>eople, it were let ter to do so than to see the digsrueeful situation of the railroads controlling the government, bribing officials in high places, adopting extortionate rates anl riding rough shod over the rights of the people. Make one more honest and faithful attempt, under Deniu-ratie control of the government to regulate, and failing, then let the government own them, and assert its authority, in behalf of the jieople. No "Understanding" Clause Regarding Payment of Taxes To distribute the school funds among the counties according to the number of white educable children, would be not only wrong, but unconstitutional. Kentucky . and North Carolina, directly after the civil war, passed a law requiring a separate collection of school taxes of whites and negroes, and giving the school tax paid by whites to white children, and that paid by negroes to negro children. The courts of both states and the fed eral courts held all these taxes were void and the schools were stopped in both states until these laws were re pealed and other laws passed, making taxes collectible from all alike, regard less of color, and giving school terms of equal length to each race. Of course the amount expended for the education of negroes is very much less than that for whites. In this state the negroes have largely more school children than the whites, yet they get but $1.00 out of every four spent for education. Their teachers are paid less and more of their children are put in one school. In this way white schools can l>e carried on in negro counties, even where there are no more than ten or fifteen white children in a radius of three or four miles. If the white chil dren in counties where negroes are in ■a very large majority could get only the same amount of pro rata as do white children in the counties where the whites are in a large majority, the white schools in negro counties could not he run more than a few months in the year-from the money paid by the state. In some of the white counties there are fifty white children in a school, on an avereage, "one living further than three miles, and in some of the negro counties not fifteen, on an average, within the same radius. Each school requires a teacher, and teachers prefer teaching in neighborhoods where there are many white people as in the hills, to where there are but few white people, as in the delta, where roads get to be impassable in winter. For this reason it would he inequitable, as well as unconstitutional, for the state to distribute money in different counties, according to the number of white children. A candidate without a platform is ilke a boat without a rudder. There is no telling where either will drift. A platform is the chart and compass which directs official action. All stand on the Democratic platform, just as all -accept and abide by Democratic nom inations. There are so many things that the Democratic platform doesn't cover that we must look to the plat- I STATEMENT showing the condition i of the BANK OF CRUGER of Cru ger, Miss.,on Sept. 12, 1906.

B. S. Beall Lexington, Miss. Night Service Phone 104 forms of candidates to know how they stand. Our last Democratic platform hardly touched a state question, and no other Democratic platform will be made until after the regular session of the next legislature, and after all officers elected have taken up their course of official conduct. "Get The Votes, Billie,'' is the heading of an editorial of the Natchez Democrat, reproduced and indorsed in Hon. Jno. S. Williams' home organ, the Yazoo City Herald, condemning Bryan for his repudiation of Roger Sullivan, and stating that the 24 elec toral votes of Illinois were well worth seeking, regardless of the kind of man whom you had to line up with to get them, even though it were Jesse James or a Capt. Kidd, robber, or pirate. Such slushing loses sight of a man be ing judged by the company he keeps. No party led by such a well known boodler as Sullivan could or ought to win. The Herald hurts Mr. Williams by siding with Bryan's enemies. Senator E. F. Noel was the first can didate to bring before the people of the state the issues, suppression of trusts, equal taxation of all property according to its value, and a state hoard of equalization to affect this end, a fairer distribution of school funds, st> that all of the white children would be provided with adequate school facilities; and such regulation of the charges of common carriers as to give the agricultural and industrial products of the state a fair show in the state markets; and an elective judiciary. Hon. E. F. Noel, candidate for gov ernor, has not a single opponent for the office. He is not running against anybody. Others there lie in the race, to be sure.—Meridian Sun.] Noel is running on his own record, and not on the demerits of others.
