THE NESHOBA OEHOGRAT
Subscription: $1 a Year. H. L. RAY Editor and Publisher Entered at the post office at Phila delphia, Miss., as second class mail matter. The proposed drainage district forKentarky swamp and Custnsha swamp Neshoba Land Cos. is one of the greatest prospective lea tures for this county since the coming of the railroad. The Neshoba Laud Cos. in corporated some weeks ago owns some 15000 acres of land in Kentarky and Oust* usba swamps. It has been our privilege to have been over this whole body of land and we do not believe there is a better tract of bind in the county, in fact experien ced land inhii have classed it with our world famed Delta basin.. All this laud needs to be put in cultivation is successful drainage. That is the purpose of the Neshoba Land Cos. This land now has an assessed valuation of about $3 per acre and if properly drained as pro posed, t here is not an acre but what would be worth ten times as much and some more than that. Quite a bit of these swam ps is owned by private indi viduals and it is necessary for their co-operation in or der to secure the drainage district and to that end the owners of the big tract are taking the question up di rectly with these private laud owners. To one who is familiar with the drainage districts, especially in the Delta and has observed the increased valuation of the lands and the easiness in which they are brought into cultivation, there is nothing but enthusiasm for the pro ject. We have no interest in this proposed district other than to see it put through, believing if it is done it will mean the biggest step for ward in au agricultural wav that has been under taken by any county in this shite outside the Delta. There is another feature that should not go by un noticed and that is the eli minating of malaria’ from the drained section, that it self would be inestimable in dollars and cents. We sincerely hope work on this big drainage ditch will be started before 1917 has passed. As stated in the beginning no project could mean so much, not only to the district but the whole county would feel the effects of a scheme that has for its object the reclaiming of 20 or 25 thousand acres of the best land in east Mississippi and making itjcultivatable and productive. Germany’s leap year pro posal seems to have met the same fate -as many oth ers.

Senator Richardson said he was anxious to go and vote for an absolute prohib itive law and if necessary would be willing to bear his own expenses in an extra session. Representative Wil Hams said he felt, the govern or would do the proper thing if he should call the legislature together. He said the expense would be quite a little for a few days session yet the saving to our people, in cutting out this drain for whiskey would be many times greater than the cost of an extra session, if the sentiment throughout the state is as great for a bonedry law as in this coun ty the Governor will call an extra session at once. Judge J. A. P. Campbell died at his home ih Jackson a few nights ago at the age of 87 years.* Judge Campbell was the last of the original delegates to the Confederate Congress and was a member of the convention that adopted the ordinance of secession Perhaps the most brilliant chapters in the life of this great man, were his services ou the bench. Asa member of the Supreme Court for 18 years, his decisions were quoted, not only by all the courts ol this land but in foreign countries as well. Judge Campbell did not be long to that latter day class of statesmen, whose ever move was to be in the public eye. Brilliant, modest and retiring his learning shone out as the rays of sun light, high above those things that were little. Our state can ill afford to lose such meu as Judge Camp bell. Gov. Bilbo is considering calling the legislature in session to enacta“bone dry” prohibition law. Under the recent decision of the U. 8. Supreme court the state has the privilege of prohibit ing liquor in any quantity being shipped in the state for personal or any other use except medical and for scientific purposes. Absolute prohibition is coming not only to the state but the nation and the whis key drinker had just as well get ready for it. There is no doubt of the facta majority of the people of this state are in favor of absolute prohibition. The cost of a special session would more than be met by the saving of the money that will be spent for whiskey this year.

It is an odd day when the liquor traffic is not hit good and hard. Since the decis ion enabling: the states from prohibiting the shipment of whiskey for any purpose the Senate has p is-md a bill a polishing saloons in Wash ington and now have pas sed another bill prohibiting whiskey advertising to *be sent through the mails to states that have local laws debarring such literature. Idle house is sure to pass t hese same bills and then the bushels of wins key circulars that clog the mails some weeks Will be stopped. The time is close at hand if you want whiskey you will have to go after it where made. In the death of “Buffalo Bill” in Denver a few days ago, at the age of 71, this country loses one of its most picturesque characters. “Buffalo Bill” as William F. Cody was familiarly known has been the idol of nearly every boy for several gener ations. He is to be buried on top of one of the llocky Mountains, overlooking Hie western plains, where “Buf falo Bill” had many dar ing experiences. The last of the contested seats in Congress came from New Jersey and has been decided in favor of a dem ocrat.
