HEARST LOSES CONTEST
Mayor McClellan is Victorious
in 190S Campaign.
BALLOT BOXES NOT STUFFED
Hearst Was Unable to Prove HU Charge
to Satisfaction of Judge, Who Directed
Verdict For McClellan.
New York.—Mayor George B. Mc
Clellan’s title to the office of mayor
of New York city was made clear by
the decision of Justice Lambert in the
supreme court when he ordered a jury
to render a verdict that McClellan
was duly elected mayor in 1905. W.
R. Hearst has been contesting the
mayor’s right to the office practically
ever since the election, and as a re
sult of his charges of fraud in the
original count of ballot the legislature
passed a law enabling a recount. At
torney General W. S. Jackson then
instituted quo warranto proceedings
on behalf of the people, in which
both Mr. Hearst and Mayor McClellan
were named as defendants.
The recount left Mayor McClellan
with a plurality of 2,965, whereupon
Clarence J. Shearn, representing Mr.
Jackson, alleged that the ballot boxes
had been stuffed and requested the
court to throw the entire vote of 112
election districts in which he charged
that the ballots found in the boxes ex
ceeded the number of registered vot
ers. This, however, was based on an
incorrect list of voters, and, when the
correct list was produced Tuesday, Mr.
Shearn said that the registration was
greater than- the poll in every disputed
district.
Jus tice Lambert declined to throw
out the contested districts. Mr. Shearn
then charged that the Inspectors had
registered an excess number of names,
but said he could not prove repeat
’ ing.
The justice then declared that the
original count was quite as complete
as the one made in court, and that the
evidence showed no fraud as far as
the election Inspectors were concern
ed. He said that if legal voters could
be disfranchised so readily as had
been attempted In this case, this form
of government would not endure long.
If the jury were to return a ver
dict against Mayor McClellan, Justice
Lambert said he would not allow it
to stand, and he ordered a verdict In
favor of the mayor, which was ren
dered. The jurors were allowed $510
«ach, having sat 51 days.
Mayor McClellan spent oyer $40,000
to defend his title and says that ho
had no regrets as to the course he
pursued, and that he feels that the
controversy will discourage the bring
ing of election contests of this sort in
the future. He said that had he sus
pected that his election was the re
sult of fraud, he would have acted
differently.

REQUEST C ROM MEXICO
A*k* the United State* to Prevent Vio

Scattered Over Republic.
Washington.—By direction of Presi
dent Roosevelt, Secretary of War Taft
has issued orders to the commanding
general of the Department of Texas at
San Antonio to send a sufficient num
ber of troops to Del Rio, El Paso and
other points in Texas to aid the civil
authorities in preserving order. This
action was decided upon as a result of
the request from the Mexican govern
ment that the United States do its ut
most to prevent any violation of the
neutrality laws.
Brigadier General L. A Moyer, In
command of the Department of Texas,
is authorized to ascertain the number
of troops necessary at Del Rio and El
Paso and also to send troops to any
other points Along the Mexlco-Texas
border if found advisable. The federal
troops will act under the directions of
the United States marshal and the
United States district attorney. Del
Rio is directly opposite Las Yacas,
Mexico, where the principal disturb
ances have occurred.
City of Mexico. — Up to Monday
evening there had been no news of
any sort received at the capital that
repetition of the disorders similar to
those which occurred at the towns of
Viesca and Las Vacas.

direction of the secretary of the inte
rior, Senor Corral, who is also vice
president of the republic.
Dallas, Texas.—Carrying his arm in
a sling, Sam P. Harrison, for the last
live years a resident of Blanco, Mex
ico, arrived in Dallas Tuesday, with
his family, en route east to visit rela
tives. Mr. Hanison got his wound
from a shot that was fired through
the window of his home after night
fall. He says, however, It was a stray
bullet and that Americans who have
not interfered with the affairs of the
revolutionists, have not been both
ered
"That is not a fake revolution,” said
Mr. Harrison. ‘‘It is a dead- earnest
affair. I am inclined to think that
the soldiery of the president are aiding
and abetting the revolutionists. 1
personally know that the president is
greatly worried. It is my opinion that,
the Mexican army ,is honeycombed
with the revolutionists.”
Asked his opinion of the ability of
President Diaz to cope with the situa
tion, Mr. Harrison replied that he be
lieved the president would manage the
afTair.
‘‘But when he is dead,” added Mr.
Harrison, "and that will not be very
long now, as the president is getting
old, the Diaz regime will be at an
end. When Diaz dies 1 look for a
general uprising and the revolutionary
element will take the lead in affairs."
RELIEF FOR VICTIMS OF FLOOD.
Federal Government Orders Six
Weeks’ Supplies for 4,000 Persons.
Vicksburg, Miss.—Lieutenant P. B.
Upham of the United States army who

sufferers in Wilkinson, Adams, and
Jefferson counties, which districts he
visited.
The orders for this district will be

Agricultural development In the
Hlth has received satisfactory lm
•tua from a number of source# dur
>iff the past few years, but from
ione aa It haa irom the county and
late fairs that have Sprung up sad
lourtshed in every Southern Ptata
tlsslaslppl la no exception to this
lie but on the other hand, Is stroag
tdence of Its correctness The
■Vmber of couuty fairs has been
rgely Increased In the last four
•ars and all of the* seem to be
rowing stronger year by year In
ibtts and popularity To these Instl
itions should be given large ered
t for the prosperity that baa attend
1 the agricultural people during
ife past few years. The ,.i .sslsnlppl
tate Fair, which Is a fixture In MIs
Isalppl events now, was begun four
ears ago on a very small scale. The
rlter solicited the two thousand dol
ars with which It war begun lu the
arly fall of 190 4, bg.ievtng that It
vould prove of value to the agrl
ultural and stock raising interests
if the state, and thnt the people
Vould accord a liberal patronage to
•i well-conducted Institution of this
haracter. The money was subaortb
J by the business men of Jackson,
,1th the understanding that they
vere not to receive from It at any
ime direct profits In the way of div
Ucnds, but that they might expect
t to benefit them indirectly by ben
iftttlng the whole country. Only a
ow weeks were allowed for making
preparations for the Corn and Oot
iou Carnival which was held during
(ocember, 1904. However, the ex
llbts in all lines were especially sat
• ifactory and the attendance all that
■juld have been desired. It was
■early shown that the people of Mis
isslppl wanted a good state Fair
ad would accord it a liberal patron
ge. The promoters then decided
liat It should be made a permanent
vent, and with that idea in view the
'Isslsslppl . Industrial Exposition
o., was formed for *he purpose of
oldlng the Mississippi State Fair
ach fall. It was again understood
hat no dividends should be paid up
n the capital 'stocky and that all
tonles accrueing shojld be invested
i permanent lmprovments and In
eased premiums fo« agricultural,
ortlcultural. live Sto*. poultry, la
:es work, etc. WhllS the Old Cap
ol building was sulllcient to hold
■e exhibits offered t ie flrat year, it
''■as found necessary the next fall to
irovide a number of large tents to
ake care of the
' died for space 8ta^T*«IW«IPWr
ir live stock and temporary build
igs for commercial exhibits. A
rand stand was erected and the old
late race track, forty years old, re
built. The Fair was again all that
ts most ardent friends could have
esired. although necessarily post
->ned by yellow fever quarantine,
he attendance was from almost ev
,ry county in the state, and exhibits
-om a majority of them.
It Is said in cotton circles that
ive brokers and spinners are very
imch exercised as to the strength
. >f« the holding movement for the
present crop and the figure that it
vlll cut in the price of cotton this
' 1,11. The spiners are inclined, it is
aimed, to lay In their supplies ear
y and at a fair price if spinable
rades can be had. This is cheer
ig news for the farmer and is evl
ence of the god work being done by
he Union throughout the cotton
lanting section. There is no doubt
■ut what good was acompllshed last
all, and the organization is strong
i- this year than ever, having had
lore experience being provided with
lore warehouses and better connec
ions with the consumer of their
stton. Arangements are being per
>eted with a large coton mill to sup
>iy cotton bagging for a portion of
ils year's crop. The contract calls
. ,r so much per yard for manufac
jre, the cotton to be furnished f*om
aw grades by the Union Itself. This
i a good move and it will be remem
o.»ad that the writer recommended
» a report to the legislature in Jan
ary that the state erect a srsall
. f ... n Ir In n pot t At, ho 0'ffinD'
>n one of the farms but it was not
• cted upon. The Union is doing
ood work, the membership is grow
ig in stability as well as in nunt
crs. One trouble with our people
s, that they expect too much In a
hort time, but those who are falth
tl and stick it out will have the
'tisfaction of seeing the conditions
11-rounding the farmer greatly 1m
roved in the next few years. Those
pposlng the Union in this fight have
iken years to build up their busl
oss and it cannot be changed in a
'w months. It will take earnest and
u-sistent effort to accomplish the
-sired ends. Stand by the Union
id its officials and good results will
ime after awhile.
This year a splendid building for
isultry will be erected and other lm
.rovements made as funds at hand
ill permit. The agricultural build
lg will be extended if possible, the
jace already applied for making it
ppear that this will be necessary.
\ permanent fence around the
rounds is needed and will be built
f possible this year, or next year
>y all means. It is expected that
this will be the best year for the
air since its organization, and that
*ully 100,000 people from all coun
-les in Mississippi and many other
tatns will attend.
Last year. 1907, it was seen from
jarly indications that more space for
agricultural exhibits would be re
quired and a splendid agricultural
building is one of the largest and
best arranged fair buildings in the
South, being almost 300 feet ' in
length and more than 150 feet in
Width. Many other Improvements of
a permanent nature were made and
and the general exhibits compared
favorably with any be found in
the South._
Nine persons died as the result of
heat In New York City.
There are a number of men in Mlt
■laalppt who are doing a splendid
work for the state, and who are
not seeking preferment of any char
acter. This number Is larger than
rver before and the result of their
efforts Is beginning to* tell In un
mistakable results. Agricultural pur
and there is a lessening tendency te
leave the farm and to go to town.
Those who forsook the farm years
ago have an inclination to go back
and few of them have not secured a
piece of land and made arrange
ments to have It Improved. The law
making bodies are favoring the far
mer more than ever and tne pros
pects for agriculural development
were never quite so good. The good
work being done is bearing fruit,
and all honor is due the unselfish
men who are giving their time and
means for the benefit of their fel
low men as well as for themselves.
The unselfish spirit being so lib
erally displayed is highly commend
able and will be appreciated by the
people of Mississippi.
The dates for this year have been
moved forward to October 27th to
November 5th, to get ahead of the
annual cold spell that has been en
countered for the past three seasons.
The enterprise is well worthy of the
to live for in a progressive country
people of the state who would see
our agricultural and stock resources
properly developed. Other states
have maintained fairs for years and
drawn upon Mississippi for thous
ands of our best people to develops
un'ii iu mr uru luirui ui
our own. Texas alone has taken
from us during the past twenty
years more than 100.000 of our
good white people Texas maintains
a great state ralr as well as numer
ous county fairs. There la more
to live for In a progreslve country
the people together once each year
In an experience meting where the
best of everything is shown. Missis
sippi must encourage fairs and oth
er movements that will tend to keep
our people In Mississippi.
In February of 1000, the Missis
sippi egisature In session, granted to
the Fair a six year lease on the Old
Capitol and grounds for a nominal
sum. thereby recognizing the under
taking as one of merit and giving to
It the official endorsement of the
authorities. This action was en
dorsed by the people all over the
gnp^-KMsnff <q.. *t>: o
came In stronger tnan ever. It was
found necessary this year to build a
large building known as the "Lib
eral Arts" hall." Also to enlarge the
space set aside for live stock and
provide a temporary place for poul
try. A large amount of permanent
Improvements were made during the
year and the fair In the fall was an
other splendid success, although the
destructive storm In September de
stroyed a portion of the crops being
grown for exhibit and caused a gen
eral depression. The attendance
was excellent and interest at fever
heat.
Many buildings are needed right
now but cannot be supplied until
more funds are available. A live
stock amphitheatre with sheds for
several hundred head of stock that
will cost about $6,000 Is badly need
ed. A hog house to cost $2,000 Is de
manded and will be built at the first
opportunity. An implement build
ing for the display of agricultural
Implements Is being called for by
the manufacturers of the country,
they offering a fair rental for same.
This building would cost about $6,
000. An auditorium to Beat 5.000
people and which would cost $7,500
is lacking and on the program for
erection as soon ns possible Other
buildings to the amount of $10,000
are badly needed and will be sup
plied during the next few years If
no reverses are sustained.
This is an excellent showing for our
great old state. Our Fair Is not as
large as the Texas Fair and possibly
some of those In other Southern
states, but It must be considered
that this fair has not had state aid
as have many of these If not all of
them. Louisiana gives to her fair
each year $10,000 for buildings and
$5,000 for premiums; Tennessee
gives for premiums $10,000 per
year; Florida pays $15,000 per year,
Missouri has spent >400,000 upon
her fair during the past few years,
it being owned and controlled exclu
sively by the state. Mississippi has
had nothing more than the use of
the ground, which Is held under a
tentative lease.
The Mississippi State Fair Is con
ducted for the benefit of the agri
cultural people of the State and not
aB a money making Institution. Of
me uuhtib »uu imi« mauitru n
during the four years of Its existence
only one of them, the manager, re
ceives one cent for his services. That
it has been worth a great deal to the
agricultural Interests cannot be de
nied, but this benefit Is jusi now be
ginning to be felt. In future years
it will be worth thousands of dol
lars to the people. It Is today the
one big event annually In the his
tory of -the state to which the farm
ers. truckers, poultrymen and stock
raisers look to. It must grow larg
er from year to year. The necessary
buildings will take some years to
supply, unless state aid Is secured,
but iney will come in time.

Eighty Years Old; Never Voted.
All sorts of men are noted fop til
sorts of things, and. here is a man
in Rockland, Mass., just deceased, who
was famous for having abstained
throughout his eighty years of Ilf*
from casting a ballot. As a hoy h*
^listened to political wrangles between
the Democrats and Whigs, and became
so disgusted with politics that he
vowed he would never go near the

the duties of citiz; nship! Yet there
are thousands of men who are Irri
tated by the evils of politics, and
who would rather keep aloof than mix
in and help eliminate them. It Is so
easy to deplore the wickedness of
politicians and to assume the holier
than-thou attitude; it is not so easy
to come out like a man and take a
stand against the politicians. To de
fy bosses and machines in public re
quires stamina.—Providence Journal.
The Freshman.
A "Freshman” at college is a man
: *not salted.” It was anciently a cus
tom in many colleges (as it is today)
to play practical jokes on the non*
comers. One of the most common
of these jokes was to assemble them
in a room and make them deliver a
speech. Those who acquitted them
selves well had a cup of "caudle;”
those who barely passed muster had a
caudle with salt water, while the rest
had the salt water only. Before this
ordeal hail been gone through they
were all "Freshmen"—had not been

somehow, stuck to them until they
had finished their first year at col
lege, when they ceased to be Fresh
men.—The American.
Man’s brain is a sort of human boil
er which Is continually producing
words and Ideas. The best thing to
do with its products is to apply the
ideas to useful work, to high thought,
to elevating and advancing the world.
And to use words to express these
thoughts and to aid In the progress ol
civilization, advises the New Torh
World. Some men have more ideas
than words. Most men have more
words than Ideas. In either case talk
tends to restore the balance of brain
pressure and to maintain a mental
equilibrium. If this cannot be done
freely and in public the result Is hid
den agitation, secret conspiracy and
every little while an explosion of
some kind.
The highbrows have discovered that
all nervous diseases are caused by
too much talking. “People silent by
nature are seldom til,” they claim. “A
large percentage of the victims of
nervous diseases are great talkers,
who discuss imaginary ailments until
they get them.’’ The treatment they
propose of those affected with the gift
of gab is silence, observes the Pitts
burg Dispatch. It includes walks In
cemeteries and visits to deaf and
dumb asylums and other Institutions
devoted to silence. There will be spe
cial courses for barbers, street car
conductors, actors and others slot*
with limber maxlllarles.
Other people besides the banket*,
declares the Detroit News, are worry
ing about how to make the dollar
