I OPOSED PRIMARY ILLEGAL inatorial primary cannot be held under the law. utu te Cannot Be Set Aside by Resolu tion-Legislature No Warrant ’ for Its Action. Washington, D. C.—An earnest and Diwnt seeker after knowledge at the wt congressional library Thursday aft noon was Gov. Noel of Mississipui, who W nd in the rode of that state statutes bitli he declared tonight buttress his rcviously formed conclusion that the reposed senatorial primary in which mator Lcßoy Percy and former Gov. line! K. Vardanian have agreed to en ir is illegal. Gov. Noel said that he opposed the ovwnber primary from the lirst step bn to hold it, and resolved to keep imself aloof from any plans that might i projected towards it culmination; t his opposition to the proposition it predicated upon the belief that it Utopiated doing something for which Kit is no warrant in the laws of Mis ippi. The absorbing nature of events trans ring at Jackson in (he closing days of n legislature, he declared, prevented a from looking carefully into the law wing directly upon the subject, but nee his arrival in Washington several ijt ago he concluded to prosecute dili nt inquiry and the result of that inves jilion is as above stated. Gov. Noel states, furthermore, that we reading sections 3721 and 3722 of erode of Mississippi, lie is convinced jond peradventure that nny primary hi n the state for any office prior to ■gust, 1911. as prescribed by the stat es, would be illegal. The legislature, isays, cannot change a statute of the lie by resolution; therefore he is at a It to understand upon what authority lion was taken fur the forthcoming itember primary for the selection of a lited States senator. Cor, Noel declared with emphasis that had nothing to do will) the projected nngemenls for the senatorial primary, and, furthermore, that he would take no tl in the primary. What he intends do with the issues and the situations it the proposed primary may evolve, would not commit himself, saying it he would wait upon developments rguidanep. It is even doubtful if Gov. *1 will participate in the November mart to the extent of easting his le, for flip reason that he has already uded the proposition as illegal. More ff, it is doubtful if he would be gov led or controlled in any sense by the mltof the primary, and in that event •ould refuse to accept the resignation Senator Percy should he be defeated tie contest. The governor also makes the point it the proposed senatorial primary a not included in the call for the ex i icaaion of the legislature which has h adjourned. PERCY KNEW WAS ILLEGAL. t Holds Primary Will Be Binding on Those Who Participate. Washington.—Concerning the state •t made by Gov. Noel to the effect • the proposed senatorial primary was S>l, Senator I.eßoy Percy said that nerer claimed it was legal, his eon ®on being that the primary was a ffi ‘ r . v by agreement and would be ding upon those Democrats who par ried in it; also that the choice of i November primary naturally would the choice of the Democrats in the I®! primary of 1911. toreover, Senator Percy said that the nominated in the November pri -0 would not have to make a canvass the 19U contest. jhould Gov.

Minority Says Whisky, Patronage and Undue Influence Were Used to Defeat Vardaman. In the house Chairman Herbert Holmes of the probing committee pie -Be”ted the following majority report; “Be have examined sixty-seven wit nesses, and all the testimony, including questions and answers, is now being transcribed by the stenographers and will be published, as heretofore provided for by resolution of this house. In the examination of witnesses we have spaicd no time or expense in trying to arrive at the truth, bringing witnesses here from all parts of the state and running down each rumor that came to our knowledge, and examined every witness that we had any know ledge of whom w as supposed to know, or even if it were rumored that he knew-, any facts that would aid us in our investigation. “After what we believe to be a full and thorough investigation, we have been unable to find any evidence of a single instance where the vote of a mem ber was corruptly influenced, and because thereof voted for some candidate other than his own choice. In the opinion of your committee, Senator Leroy Percy was fairly and honorably nominated by the Democratic caucus. Respectfully submitted, * HERBERT HOLMES, Chairman. “Van B. BODIE. “M. P. FOY.” Minority Report. The minority report, prepared bj Messrs. A. C. Anderson and Lee M. Russell, was as follows; “We, the undersigned members of the house investigation committee under the Foy resolution of March 19, 1910, beg leave to submit tlie lollowing minority report: “We preferred that our committee sub mit to you the full and complete tran scribed notes of the stenographer with out comment, for the reason that each of you and each citizen of the stale is fully competent to draw his own con clusions from the testimony. “We take it that if you desire * re port at all you wish only that we pre sent to yon in the concise form the ma terial things brought out in the inves tigation. There is too much evidence to go into detail as to it all. We sub mit some of the most important as we view it. “First—We believe that undue influ ence by the improper use of liquor was used upon at least one member of the house. This member was changed from his original conviction, and, being un fortunately addicted to the use of strong drink, was by this improper influence overpersuaded to vote against his real convictions. "Second—'l'lie evidence shows, further, that in the other instances other mem bers of the legislature were approached and asked if money or political position would persuade them to change their vote, mid this, ns we believe, was very improper. “Third—Even the patronage of the federal government is shown to have been brought into piny and used in the caucus. We say, however, that we have no evidence that any federal official knew that such was being done, “Fourth- —We submit that the execu tive patronage of Mississippi was used with telling effect. We do not mean by this statement that our chief executive promised any office to any person to influence any vote; there is no evidence of that. But we do say that the gov ernor conferred and advised continually, ami this wus well known to every mem ber of the caucus, with nil Hie opposi sition’ candidates, their friends and members of the caucuses to the best methods to solidify the ‘opposition’ and to persuade some members supporting ex-Gov. Vardaman to change their votes, was highly improper. In view of the well-known fact that Gov. Noe), us stated in his evidence before the com mittee, and in Ins public utterance, ‘that nil things being about equal' he would appoint his friends, we believe from the evidence submitted that under the in tense state of feeling that existed throughout the caucus tills state of af fairs laid a strong tendency to prevent freedom in easting the ballot. "F'ifth—The evidence shows also that some men during the caucus changed t heir votes. Their explanations therefor are in evidence, and while we do not im pugn their motives, we cull your atten tion to their testimony. “Seventh —Whisky was used exces sively during the caucus, but there is no proof that any intoxicants were dis pensed in the headquarters of any of the candidates. “LEE M, RUSSELL. “A. C. ANDERSON." Percy and Vardaman Will Stump State. Senator Leroy Percy and ex-Gov. Var danian, both addressed letters to Chair man Lomax, of the State executive com mittee, in which they agree to a joint debate and canvass of the State for the senate, the primary to be neld November next, and both to abide by the result as per the resolution adopted by the Legis lature.

ROOTS THAT NEEDED SOAKING 1 Pat at Least Told the Exact Truth In His Application for Whisky. The town of Dedham is under pro hibition law, apothecaries alone being permitted to sell alcoholic stimulants. The other day a son of the Emerald Isle entered a drug store there, and, taking a bottle from his pocket, asked for a quart of whisky. The salesman asked to what use it was to be put. and the reply was: "To soak roots In it.” The order was filled, and the clerk, after handing over the bottle and Its contents, Inquired, In a conversational manner: “What kind of roots are you going to soak?" Pocketing the bottle, the customer said; "The roots of my tongue.be jabers!” —Argonaut Storyette (1886). Not Quite. "Young man," Inquired her father, sternly, "will you give her a home like the one she has been used to?” "No." replied the truthful suitor, “for there will be no grumpy father to come home and make everyone mis erable by his kicking over trifles and swearing at matters In general. There will be no mother to scold her from morning to night for wasting time merely because she wants to he neat. There will be no big brother to abuse her for not doing half of his work, and no little brother to make enough noise to drive her crazy when her head aches.
