EAST MISSISSIPPI TIMES, STARKSVILLE, MISSISSIPPI IREIAND SHEDS HE UNION JACK IRELAND TAKES OVER FULL GOV ERNMENTAL POWER WITH LITTLE CEREMONY. MIKE COLLINS’ TRIUMPH Seat of British Government Surrenders To Irish Leaders For the First Time In Eight Centuries— Historic Ceremony. Dublin. —Dublin Castle surrendered for the first time in nearly eight cent uries. The surrender was to Micbuel Collins, and Dublin Castle Is now in the hands of the Irish nation. Full gov ernmental powers were turned over to the Irish Free State. It was more than a symnolie little ceremony when Mr. Collins and other members of the provisional govern ment drove through the bullet-shatter ed gates of the lower castle yard In four motor cars, swung up through the archway to the upper square and en tered the doorway leading In the coun cil chamber as proprietors. This is the first time Irishmen ever exercised authority in these precincts by choice of the Irish people alone. Tradition ascribes the origin of one part of the castle to a feudal prince ling of the tenth century; another to invading Danes of the eleventh cent ury, and it was there in the thirteenth century that one of the British Ed wards received the fealty of Irish kings. Since then it has been the seal of British executive authority in Ire land, even in times when the Irish peo ple exercised their own legislative au thority In the parliament house across the way. After an exchange of amenities be tween Viscount Fltzalan of Derwent, his majesty's lord lieutenant and vice roy of Ireland, and that "Mick” Col lins, who tour years ago was an ob scure sorter in his majesty’s postoffice, the heads of the various departments In the castle were introduced to the members of the provisional govern ment aa their bosses. Technically the crown disappeared that moment from every post box and every policeman s helmet, and the roy al image and description lost their place on every Irish postage stamp, coin, bill and document. Actually, of course, it will be a long process be fore that result is attained, but for the first time in more than 700 years the executive authority in Ireland resides frontally and actually in the hands of nine Irishmen chosen by Irishmen themselves. A crowd which taxed the ability of a big detail of Dublin metropolitan and republican police thronged the streets In front of the castle gates and cheered the party as It passed in and those that went out. When the gates •wultg open to admit four hired motor cars in which the members of the pro visional government rode, the police good-naturedly allowed a big section of that crowd to throng in after them. It was the first time that many of the members of the provisional govern ment, as well as many persons In the crowd, had ever been within Its grim walls, where soldiers, auxiliaries and ether workmen were still busy remov ing barbed wire, camouflage, cloth, sandbage, etc. Will Open Alaska.

PEOPLE WERE AROUSED Anti-Newberry Telegrams Flood Capl tol Halls—Eleven Friends of the Michigander Face Defeat In the Next Election. Washington. The Ford-New berry case will be reopened and another ef fort made to declare the seat of the Michigan senator vacant. This deter mination was definitely announced by some of tlie prominent democrats. The demand will he based on the possibil ity of obtaining additional evidence from witnesses who were not examin ed heretofore and from Senator New berry himself. No conclusion has .been reached aa to when the proposal for reopening of the Michigan elector's candidate will bo made. It is probable that a resolution will be offered and permit ted to lie dormant until after the No vember elections. Any attempt to ob tain the adoption of such a resolution in the near future undoubtedly would fail by approximately the same vote as that given on the question of per milting Newberry to retain his seat. The positive decision to reopen the Ford-Newberry case is primarily based on the conclusive Indication that pop ular sentiment is overwhelmingly an tagonistic to the verdict rendered by the senate. This Is being demonstrat ed by a deluge of telegrams and lot ters. These are pouring in on the friends and enemies of Newberry alike. The bulk of them come to those who opposed seating Newberry and express confidence In the belief that the sen ate will reverse itself, as was done In the Lorimer case. The communications being received by those who voted for Newberry are resentful and filled with criticism of the altitude assumed by the senators supporting the Michigan senator. Judging from the opinion prevailing throughout the country as evidenced by the telegrams and letters the demo crats figured on gaining sufficient votes in the November elections to overcome the slender majority In fa vor of Newberry thus making his ex clusion easy of accomplishment. A change of but three votes would trans form the majority of five for New berry to one against him. High hopes are expressed by promt; nent democrats that u senators will be chosen in November to succeed that number who voted tor tbo retention of Newberry. • FIFTEEN HURT IN WRECK.

I Will your "Good Morning* 1 Easy to start from the breakfast table with zest and enthusiasm, but how easy is it to keep on? Does ambition last, or lag, as the day develops? The afternoon “slump” is a factor to be count ed upon, in business or social life. Usually, there’s a reason. Nerves whipped by tea or coffee won’t keep on running, and they won’t stand constant whipping. Many a man or woman who has wished the afternoon would be as bright as the morning has simply been wishing that the nerves wouldn’t have to pay the natural penalty for being whipped with the caffeine drug. Postum gives a breakfast cup of comfort and cheer, without any penalties afterward. There’s no “letting down” from Postum —no midday drowsiness to make up for midnight wakefulness; no headaches; no nervous indigestion; no increase of blood pressure. Think it over. There’s full satisfaction in Postum —a cup of comfort for anybody (the children included), any time.
