MISSISSIPPI NEWS AND VIEWS FROM THE STATE CAPITAL By F. R. Blrdsall The laws governing the nomination for congressmen do not seem to be generally understood, and a number of inquiries are being received at the t'late Capital touching this matter. Some of the primary election laws of Mississippi were changed at the ses sion of 1914. Section 6392, Chapter H 9. Section 2, of Hemingway’s Code, is quoted in order that congressional committees and others may be fully acquainted with the change in the law; "The first primary election tor con gressmen shall be held on the third Tuesday in August of the years in which congressmen are elected, and the second primary, when one is neces sary, shall be held three weeks there after. and the election shall be held in all districts of the state on the same day. Candidates for United States senator shall be nominated at the con gressional election next preceding the general election at which senator is to be elected under the statute putting into effect th seventeenth amendment to the United States constitution, and In the same manner that congressmen are nominated and the chairman and secretary of each congressional execu tive committee shall certify the vot# for United States senator to the secre tary of state in the same manner that county executive committees certify the returns of counties in general state and county primary elections.” Visitors from all parts of the state report that registration is picking up throughout the various counties as the result of the continued insistence of the weekly newspapers that the men and women register forthwith unless they expect to become political or phans at the August primary, and at the November election for United Stales senator, congressman and judges and chancellors. Under -he law no person can vote at the Novem ber election or August primaries un less they have registered four months before November 7. and the dead lino falls at midnight of July 7. Elnathan Tartt. superintendent of (he Confederate soldiers' home at Beauvoir, while on a visit to Jackson, expressed great gratification at the ad ditional appropriations being made by the boards of supervisors throughout the state for the erection of a hospital for the old soldiers. Superintendent Tartt exhibited with much pleasure a letter from Hon. A. S. Kyle, state sen ator from Panola county and chairman of the finance committee of that body, enclosing an auditor's warrant on the state treasury for SSOO. Seator Kyle stated that this was half of the salary paid him. the legislature having raised the salary from SSOO to SI,OOO for mem bers of that body.

Among the sites being discussed for the audito Hum, which is expected to bo ready to accommodate the Mississippi teachers' association next May, is the Smith Park block adjoining the governor's mansion, which is centrally located and belongs to the city. Jackson has been complimented again with the meeting of the state teachers’ association, which will con vene here next May, having defeated Meridian and Biloxi for that honor Jackson entertained the state teach ers’ association last May. and it is re ported made such a favorable impres sion upon the teachers that their de sire to return next May proved a com pelling factor in the decision.
