The Neshoba Democrat, !
i OUIN’V AND Fox. : ; Proprietors w. T. QUINN, Editor. Subscription: Si a year. ANNOUNCEMENT. We are authorized to announce as a candidate for re-election to the 62nd Congress, subject to the action of the Democratic party, A. M. BYRD, of Neshoba County. “The Mississippi Poultry man” is a publication start ed up at Starkville, Miss., the first copy of which reach ed us this week, it is devot ed to a line of industry just now being developed in this territory, and would be a good investment for those engaged in the business. The Legislature has final ly adjourned. This session will be long remembered, and by some long coudemed, for some of its acts, or suppos ed acts, have been given the widest publicity, and have been very severally criticised. This session has accomplish ed a considerable deal in the way of business turned out. Some good, some bad and some indifferent. But upon the whole, we are not much worse of the wear by reason of the past session, the good accomplished outweighs the bad. Hon. C. L. Dobbs Ap pointed Judge. The many friends of Hon. ('. L Dobbs, of tins city, were graditied Saturday, to learn that he was appointed judge of this the eight ju dicial district. His appoint ment had been confidently expected for some time, yet its announcement elicited general rejoicing and dem onstration of enthesarnstic approval. Mr. Dobbs was in Jackson when appointmentwasrnade. Returning home Sunday, he was met at Union by a del egation of his townsmen, who were proud to do him honor. The newly organized Philadelphia brass band, accompanied by a large number of the towns citizens met him at the depot and give him a hearty welcome home. These marks of esteem, coming unexpected ly as they did, so surprised and overwhelmed this young wearer of the many greeting save to grasp the proffered hand of congratulation. Mr. Dobbs fully appreciate the responsibilities he has assumed in accepting this office; and, being a man of honor, well educated in both literature and law, and of large mental grasp, we pre dict for him a very enviable career as judge. As was noted in these col urns last week, Dr. D. J. Rush attended the State Medical Assoation. This was his first time to attend a meetisg of the Association but his reputation as a phy sician had preceeded him. and he was paid high tribute of being elected to the Vice presidency. of the Assoation. This means that he will be the next President. We congratulate ho the prefer ment. The select committee of the Senate, which is investi gating- wages and the cost of living, has had many in teresting arguments and statements to listen to dur ing the past few weeks and while it is not likely that any reduction in the price of food will result, some facts have been brought out and others will be, which may lead to serious thought by the American consumer. One peculiar statement was made by a “canny” Scotch man who knows more about the cattle business perhaps than any other man in this country. His name is Murdo MacKenzie. MacKenzie is a manager for large companies operat ing greatcattle raising plants in Canada, in the Dakotas, in Colorado, in Texas, in Oklahoma and New Mexico. He showed to the commit tee why the price of cattle will in all probability never decrease and he asserted that in his judgement the price of beef will never again be low for the reason that the ranges upon which thousands of animals run and were fed 20 years auo have gradually been cut up into farms, and the white cotton boll to-day covers thousands of acres in Texas, for instance, where a few years ago the white faced hereford dotted the lands cape. He asnrned the committee, however, by expressing the opinion that in his judge ment the introduction of the telephone has a great deal to do with the high cost of food stuffs. Asked to ex plain, Mr. McKenzie said: “That before the telephone came into practically uni versal use the house-wife would start out with a basket to market or the cor ner store and would buy her supplies and carry them home, but with a telephone she sits in her chair and or ders her supplies; which of course must be sent to her. The result is that the small grocer on the corner and the market dealer has been com pelled to buy horses and wagons with which to sup ply his customers if he de sired to hold his trade. The I original cost of this addi tion to his plant as well as the cost of the drivers and the cost of food for stock and the repairs to vehicles together with the rental of the stables has been added by the retailer to the cost of the supplies which he sells to the house keeper and in soinuch as it is unlikely that the telephonic method of keeping one’s larder sup plies will ever be abandoned, it follows that the cost of delivery must be added to all other costs which have piled on to the market value of food stuffs when they leave the fanner’s hand.” After one of the bitterest fights evei made in Congress on such a proposition the House committee of Agriculture has de cided to report a measure which will extend to the George Wash ington University of this city, the benefits of the Morrill Act. George Washington University was originally a more or less sectarian, institution under the name of the Columbian but in re cent years the name has been changed and the management has passed from sectarian con trol so that it. is probable that in the near future the city of Washington will have an institu tion which will take up the teaching of scientific agriculture as well as law, diplomacy, medi cine, engineering and the other professions which are included in the curriculum of a modern uni versity. Notice is hereby given that George Stevens contra cted to make a crop with me and has quit the same and till persons tire notified not to give employment to him. and doing so will subject them to the penalties ore scribed by law.

Hardy Stone was chosen chairman ot the meeting, and according to both the Meri dian papers used about this lan guage in taking his chair: •‘I am going to work for him heart and soul, for I believe he is the man for the office and if elected he would repiesent all of the people and not any “special class. 5 ’ This is as near the quotation as we can get it from the reports of the papers). Coining at the time and i place it did and from the chairman of the Witherspoon meeting, it must have a mean ing, and not meiely a few un thoughted words thrown togeth er He certainly intended to convey the idea that some con gressman had represented a "special class,” and that some body was no other than our pres ent congtessman. who is also an aspirant for the place. Plainly stated his language means that Byid has been the representative of a “special class.” Now. we all know that there is one class that Mr. Byrd has re fused to represent in congress, and that that class is no other than the lumber trust now in the toils for violating outlaw against combines. It will be remember ed that Mr. Byrd was called to Meridian just before the special session of congress convened to confer with these people regard ing his prospective action in re gard to voting for a $2.00 taiilf on lumber, and that the club of defeat was held over his head ii he refused. It is remembered, too, that he 11mtlv refused loi agree to cast the vote requested, and that he did vote against a tariff of $2.00 per thousand on lumber. Now, We want to know if Mr. Witherspoon is in favor of a tariff on lumber. Will he do the bidding of the lumber trust ?
