NEWS AND VIEWS
From The
STATE CAPITAL
By F. R. Birdsali
The case on appeal to the supreme
court from the decision of Circuit
Judge Potter holding that Governor
Russell had a right to remove Thomas
M. Henry, insurance commissioner, for
alleged embezzlement, has been ar
gued before the supreme court and
the decision of that court is expected,
as this is a preference case, at an
early date. It will be recalled that In
checking over the records of the in
surance commissioner for data in the
cases brought by State Revenue Agent
Stokes V. Robertson against the fire
insurance companies for an alleged
trust and combine, in which Chancel
lor Strieker penalized the fire insur
ance companies $8,000,000, which de
cree was affirmed by the supreme
court, the revenue agent discovered
irregularities in the office of State
Insurance Commissioner Henry. Al
ter checking up State Insurance Com
missioner Henry paid into the state
treasury through State Revenue Agent
Robertson some $30,000, and the rev
enue agent is now suing the insurance
commissioner for eome sslo,ooo addi
tional.
The Jackson Ki wants Club, of which
Chief Justice Smith is president, was
the honor guest of the Hinds County
Agricultural High School at Raymond,
and the (members of this progressive
and constructive organization were de
lighted with that magnificent institu
tion, which has become famous not
only throughout Mississippi, but all
over the country under the superin
tendency of R. E. L. Sullivan. Mem
bers of that organization pledged their
hearty co-operation in making this no
table institution, which was made a
junior college by an act of the last
legislature, more useful, if possible,
than heretofore.
The mild winter is emphasizing the
advantages of Mississippi as a great
stock raising state. Native grasses,
including Japan clover or lespedeza,
are still in luxuriant pastoral growth,
the frost not having been sufficient to
kill them. This is also true of Ber
muda grass, one of the most succulent
and best hay producers known. This
grass was brought to Mississippi by
Cowles Mead* when secretary of the
territory before Mississippi became a
state. It is reported that the levee
board of the Yazoo Mississippi levee
district has sold thousands of tons of
Bermuda hay, cut and baled from the
levees this year.
Many inquiries are being made at
the office of secretary of state for the
journals of the house and senate of
1922. Under the law successful bid
ders for the laws and journals have
eight months to fulfill their contracts.
The laws were furnished the secre
tary of state some months ago. The
time limit on the journals was up
December 8, the legislature having
adjourned on April 8. It is understood
that the secretary of state will re
ceive the Journals at an early date.
There is talk that the legislature will
repeal sooh long time limit' allowed
for the printing of the law sand jour
nals at the next session.
Tens of thousands of Mississippi
men and women who failed to pay
their pol Itax In 1921 will ’ e startled
when they read that in order to be
come qualified electors and to partici
pate in the primary election for state,
legislative and county offices next
year, they must pay $5.20. That means
$2.00 for the year 1922, $2.00 for the
year 1921 which they failed to pay,
and $1.20 damages for failure to so
pay. The $5.20 must be paid on or
before midnight of the first day of
February, 1923, In order that they may
register, which later must be done
four months before the November
elections of 1923.
Judge George A. McLean, president
of the Mississippi Tax League, has
called a meeting in this city for next
spring, and expects a largo attend
ance. It is understood the league will
pass resolutions memorializing the*
legislature for tax reduction, and that
Us recommendations will become an
issue in the campaign for governor
and members of the legislature.
The .Mississippi Railroad Commis
sion has just bad pubished one of the
handsomest and most accurate maps
ever gotten out It contains valuable
data and information. It is understood
that the map Is for free distribution as
long as It las(s, only a limited number
having been contracted for.

To Our Good Friend And Club
Member, Mrs. J. S.
Purcell
Decern lK>r 8. 1922,
Pw<> vears, how rapidly (hey have
flown
Since lirst we met your smiling face,
Amt mow we are told j*bu must be
gone
To dwell in some far dwelling place.
Your stay among us has been sweet
And helpful tu both word and work.
Your presence cheered us when we’d
meet.
And never did one task you shirk.
Olirclub has felt your helpful touch,
Your ready wit and winsome ways;
And we confess we’ll miss you much.
Rem mber this, go where you may,
Dear friend, you’ll always find this
true —
*
Some faithful friend yon leave behind
who always will remember you.
And now since vve must say farewell
to you,
Whom each one loves so dear,
Our fond affection let us tell
By this slight token resting here
It is of very little worth in value—
But in loving wish that comes to
you from every heart
Chat values this small Baking Dish.
Words .-‘uunot tell, much less a elft.
The place our hearts affection share
With you lor all your good works
done
While you have sojourned here.
Since fate decrees that y u must go,
Though sad it makes u-< thus depart,
We tell you this, to let you know.
Best wisbesgo wtthyou Dear Heart
So, fare you well—such words are
sad—
But one sweet day by our God given
hand
We each shall have our hearts made
glad,
We’ll meet to part no more— In
heaven. *
Until that glad reunion comes,
We’ll labor on fur God and right.
And then we will be gathered home
to Father,
Where there’ll be no night.
