POLISHED EVEIiV FKIDAV AT STAUKVILLE, MISSISSIPPI. Office in Times Building Opposite East Entrance of Courthouse. Win. Ward, Ivlllor and Proprietor. The next annual Convention of Postmasters of Mississippi will lie held al Biloxi on Aug. lOth. Senator Hob Taylor has anew lecture entiled “In (he Happy Valley.," but we are all on the hiltop when Hob tunes his fiddle. While our crops are being flooded with incessant rains, New Mexico and other Western sections are suffering with an unprecedented drouth. About the only result of the present special session of Congress will be that the people are going to be called upon to pay increased taxes sooner than they would have done if the so called revision of the tariff had been delayed until the regular session. Starkvillc ought to have an old fashioned Fourth of July celebration with a barbecue, a brass band, oratory and Hags. It would do the people good to meet and mingle together on such an occasion, and forget for the one day at least all about bad crops, scarcity of money and other worldly cares. The citizens of Artesia held a mass meeting laat Friday for the purpose and promoting the interest of good roads. Dr. (iuerry was elected chairman and A. 1-'. Mcllwain, secretary. A permanent organization was effected and a committee of nine citizens were appointed to go before the Board of Super visors ol Lowndes county with a view to securing better roads. Dyke and Al Kdwards, (lie former under life sentence and the latter indicted for the murder of Dr. Richardson were re moved from the Starkville jail to the Aberdeen jail Wednes day upon an order from Judge Mitchell. Ihe 1 hues iails to see the necessity of such precaution on the part of Judge Mitchell. Ihe Starkville jail is as safe and secure as any jail in the slate, and there was not the remot est possibility of the prisoners making their escape. Sheriff James left on the 7:30 1. C train with the prisoners Wednesday, and they are now in the Aberdeen Jail. (Hu ( ity bathers ought to put up signs at every corner with the names of the streets upon them. All of Starkville’s sheets are named but there is not one citizen in a hundred who can tell you the name of half the' streets of the ciyt. I his would be a step in the right direction, considering the small cost it would entail. It seems strange that (his mu nicipal improvement has not been made years ago. Wi h the streets named, then our pioneer citizens would be enabled to impart the name of (he streets that they have been travel ing for a life time and the city would be to this extent putting on metropolitan airs. I ,K * t'olumlnis negroes who attended the Booze Fighter’s Association in Memphis last Monday must have had a high old time judging from the following from the Columbus Commereial: "1 he excursionists were somewhat "worse for (he wear.” Shere seemed to be no lack of whiskey and plenty of cutlery as was evidenced by their appearance. They came in with bandages and splints. The ambulance met the train and those who were not able to walk were removed to the hospit als of the city.” So far as known none of the Starkville negroes who attend ed are wounded or missing. Tlu> last issiu ' <> f the News contains the following article trom a eorrospondent who signs himself “Taxpayer”. The limes herewith reproduces the article, It needs no com ment: "1 notice in a recent issue of your paper that you could not give tin- proceedings of (he Board of Supervisors for the 1 1 seal year because the Board had divided the pay between three papers in the county. 1 also see that the other town paper, the Tim , is in the same boat with you and declines to publish the proceedings because the division of the amount makes the sum too small to recompense the paper for the • ype setting and the only means of giving this important in 'ormation is confined to a paper, published at Maben in the extreme corner of the county—a paper that has no general Circulation among the taxpayers of the county and is pub- Nied and circulates in a remote section far from (he county ect. It looks to me like this policy on the part of the Board sweat we might term “pound foolish and penny wise.” he board should publish their proceedings in at least one ] .1 cr published at the county seat and thus take the tax pay.
