Tells Citizens of Noxubee They Need to Wake .Up MERIDIAN, Miss.. Aug. 29.—(Spec- ; —.ludire Robeit F. Cochran has ere- 1 iited a sensation in tin* Circuit Court at Macon, Noxubee* County during tin* past week by rigid inforcement of the extreme penalty of the law in nearly every case brought before him. In passing mmi. lence upon several offenders a few da\s ago. Judge Cochran most nnmercit nl In scored not only the lawbreaker*, hut the citizens of Noxubee county lop tin* prev- j alence of crime and a serious negligence , in enforcing the law. which he con demned in nnmeasureil terms. The judge made a remarkable address and among other things said: ••I deem it my duty to tell tin'good people of this county that in my opinion thev are slumbering upon a volcano. What I h ave to say applies mainly to the negros, but will hit the whites iti high places. Your county is simply reek" ing in crime. Heaven has blessed you with bountiful crops, and instead >d us ing heaven s blessings to elevate \our race, voii have abused its benelici *nce. I am told that the merchants here cati not get pistols here fast enough lor you negroes and have to have them sent by express. “1 want to say a few things to the whites, i have been mortified beyond description at the lack of interest shown in the proceedings of this court. 1 have not even had tne shake of a hand from a minister in this town nor a word of encouragement from a Sunday school teacher, superintendent or an amen cor ner church member. Everybody seems peafeeth willing from the pulpit down to the devil to run vour county with a high hand. I have a free hand and a free lance. I never asked the governor to appoint me judge, nor did 1 request anv person to ask him to do so. and 1 am under no obligations to anybody on earth and 1 expect to run this court ac cording to my judgement.” Vardanian and the Convicts. Everv intelligent well-wisher of the state is in hearty sympathy wit h Govern or Vardanian's desire to concentrate al' the -penitentiary convicts on the Sun flower state farm. It is preeminently the proper thing to do, and the wonder is that anybody, especially any mem ber of the board of control, should op pose it. In addition to the open land already in cultivation at tin* Sunflower farm, there are 5,000 acres of land as rich as the famed “Delta of the Nile." most of which has had the timber deadened. Governor Vardaman proposes to put all the convicts'on this farm, cut away and sell or manufacture this deadened timber, which is said to be worth twen ty or twenty five thousand dollars, and put the land in cultivation. Governor Vardanian says there is not only ample land tor cultivation, but the richest land for cultivation in the world; that when put in a state of cultivation, the farm would be worth a million dollars Surely there is neither business sense, nor good policy, nor profit in working land on the share system, or paying money rent for them when the state owns better land than that rented. Besides the Rankin and Oakley farms could be sold, and money covered in to the state treasury, and all the con vlets concentrated on the Sunflower farm, and all the officers move there. ! The Progress goes even further than this, and suggests that the slate convict system ought to be made a department of the state, and the board of- control abolished, [and the office of ‘ Superin tendent of State Convicts be created and the superintendent be elected as anv other state officer. Thus organized and all the convicts concentrated on tin* one farm, Mississ ippi would have perhaps the best con vict system in the world. —Hattiesburg Progress. Board of Mayor and Aider man.
