I VtiKMI.I.K, MISS. WM. WAltO, EIUTOn AMI I’UULISIIICII. NO SENATORIAL PRIMARY. The State Committee met in •Inekson last Friday, mid like Kitty George's army marched ii]> I lie i hill and I lien nmrelied down again, and tliere will lie no primary elee- I i<m to deeido the 1 idled Slates Senator-'Trip this year. The com*l inillee al lirsl seemed disposed to order this eleetion but upon Major \ idanian’s refusal to enter the piimaiA and meet Ins opponent in joint debate the eonnnitlee passed the following: W in rims, .1 nines K. Viinlllluiltl litis re i nsril In inter Hie primary as ordcrvU, In r:m-e of this clause of the ‘resolution ordering same: ••The eandiilali's who shall lormailv eater the mee are rei|ilsted to arrange siiitalile dales for such discussions, and I 1 1-1 - line with the Executive ('niiiniil fe. . and in tlie event they shall fail to de to .lii ie •>!). the SI ate Committee will in range for dales for such joint debates,” whereas .lames K. Ilardamaii has re liised to enter the primary as ordered to-, .ni-e ol the resolution ordering same, and " lieivii-. The ( oiiiinlUvc i~ satisfied her.iioe of said refusal that Gov Varda nian doe- not intend to debate jointly eilli Senator I’erey, the issue for which they stand, and iVlieiea-, The I minnil tee lielieves that sin li deliates are necessary in order to h i|itai111 iln- voter with the issues which mi|s| coiilnd their choice. Therefore, lie It Ucsolved, That the resolution heretofore adopted ordering a primary to lie held in November lie and the -ame i- hereby rescinded. Tlie (’i>in 111 ittee was addressed by llmi. Leroy Percy,Gov. Noel and ■'n. C, 11. Alexander, the funner favoring the primary uml the two latter opposing it. Major Varda man did not appear in person but addressed a letter which was to (he effect that he would he glad to have the matter settled by primary this .'ear.but he was to choose his own time and places for speaking, which when analy/edi means in substance, that he will not meet Percy in joint debate. Major Vardanian doubtless re members the disastrous result of tin memorable Meridian debate "hen he was inveigled into a joint discussion with John Sharp W il liams. Hi- little speech which lie makes to his own following when there i- no opponent to ask him pointed i|uestions, which in sub stance is "God bless von. my Countrymen, elect mb to the C. S, Senate and I (emphasis on the pronoun I) will save you from the negro," falls flat when he has to meet tin opponent like W illiams or Percy, Alexander a Candidate. Mr. Alexander in his speech he tore Ihe Conmiittee stated that lie laid had no communication with Ihe committee, he had not spoken to one on the subject, but had thought about the matter and ac cepted the invitation. He declared the primary litis 'ear unwise and unfair. He had made no charges of the uses of money in the Legislature. Gov ernor Vardanian was the only can didate to do that. Mr. Percy need ed no vindication—the Legislature had by unanimous vote exonera ted .Mr, I’erey. The eleetion this year is not needed, as the Legislature needs no more vindication than does Mr. Percy. The primary would settle nothing. It grew out of charges of bribery, etc., which had been fully and carefully investigated. The primary is to settle the long lenn only, and will throw no light on the charges of bribery in the contest for the short term. Prior lo 1 still the State was vex ed by biennial elections, and when the eonventian of 1!HK) met it was resolved that these campaigns of strife and bitterness should not t ome so often. The message from the Governor was the idea of only one man, but he waj elected by the same vote as elected the Legislature. It would yet be shown that the Governor has a good deal of influence in such matters, and he had been per. sisteutly Sought but recently. I the l itr'it to lay clown his eommls-! -i<•: i for l.lie short term, but hnd | nothing lucid with the long term j which could only he settled at a regular primary. The primary was not fair to a third man who might desire to get in Ihe iace for the long term. No two men had a right to have a pri mar;, ordered for their especial henelil. 1 lie challenge of Mr. Percy car ried with it the charges made dur ing the late caucus, and was a challenge to hut only one man. The charges then made had noth ing to do with the long term. lie did not want to he classed ns a poacher in somebody else’s pre serves, if he did decide to enter 1 the race. Should he become a can didate this year he would decline to discuss issues that are foreign to the ease, even if the crowds Hocked to hoar the relation of dis gusting details of frauds and bri* hery in an election that is past aid gone. If the minds of the committee men had already been made up and the primary eliminating him had been agreed cm he guessed 1 • could stand it, as he was experien eed along that line. CIR( UIT COURT. Circuit Court convened Monday with a large crowd from all parts of the county in attendance besides several visiting attorneys. Judge Cnrroll organized ilie court by im paneling the grand jury, deliver ing one of the strongest and most lucid charges ever heard from the hciieii in this city. He dwelt at length upon all infractions of the law and laid down the duties of the grand juror in plain and unmis takable language. From the ten or of his charges it is evident that he does not propose to temporize with law breakers. And is going to hold the grand jury and the pet it juries to a strict accountability of their stewardship. The following is the personel of thegrand jury with J. D. Gaston as foreman.
