Subscrip on price $l.OO per year. Governor Vardaman. The JacKson Clarion-Ledger and the Jackson News both severely criticise Governor Vardaman for his reply to President Francis (of the World’s Fair), when the latter informed Var daman that President Roosevelt was pleased with the Mississippi building at the Fair and also .because Mississippi had made an ox hi bit. Under the circumstances. Governor Vardanian’s message was alright, and the celticisms of the Critz-Longino sup porters will not hurt the Governor In the estimation of the large majority of the people of the State. The fact that Vardaman is now criticised by the old Longino-Critz crow'd, is evidence that he is in the right. Governor Vardanian properly appre ciates the humbug, the fuss and feath ers, the peanut polities, that were all mixed up in the Mississippi appropria tion for an exhibit at the World’s Fair. As far as possible, the appropriation was used to further Longino's Senatorial ambition, and no one was “put on guard’’ who did not worship at Longi no's joss-house. And a portion of me appropriation seems to have been squan dered, or, extravagant prices were paid for building or for services .Inst think of the State having to pay fifteen thou sand dollar for the material and con struction of the Mississippi building, a copy of Jeff Davis’ home at Beauvoir. The building is not a very large one. it is a frame structure and no doubt could be built in Vicksburg or Jackson for $5,000 or less although it is probably comparatively high prices prevailed at the Fair for building work. Vardaman will suffer nothing in the estimation of the people of Mississippi for his message to Mr. Francis. And let it be remembered that Vardanian did not begin the correspondence. — Vicksburg Post. We saw nothing discourteous in the Governor's reply. The over sensitive critics draw wonderfully upon their fertile and vivid imaginations. The truth of the business is the politics of the State have been in the hands of some so long that it is almost treason for one to express personal views about anything. Vardaman has not hurt himself with anybody and will not be intellectually or politically intimidated Let him bear the consequences of his utterances; he is nyt an extremist and maybe not understood by some.

If Presidedi Roosevelt was pleas ed with the Mississ ppi exhibit, it is gratilying to every Mississip pian Vardaman and Roosevelt are not as bad men and us indescrete a these papers would have people to t link them. '1 he same papers have oeen and are still anti-Vardanian: hey do and say many “uncalled” for things about him. President Roosevelt is not worrying about their considera tion of him now. No, no, no. The News is not going on a reform, no, no, no. we need reform big and permit every body to try their hand, skill and goodness upon us: they lan’t hurt ns and if they can do us any jiood we are the beneficiary. No, no, io, we have not the big head by any means as a reformist. We should do all the good and as little harm as possible. We may become discouraged when in those we have confidence, people say you are right in your efforts and go over to the other side and talk the same way. No, no, no, we are not discouraged, for such has no influence whatever with either sici<*. We wish to say that we .hink it is unfair for a baseballist to de fend the game b\ getting statitics,say for a period of liv<* years, and begin with horse back riding killed. Many of them were farmer boys going to town no doubt, taking eggs butter and other produce. For so many to be killed in games of amusements it would be bet ter to do away with them, for being so thoughtless and wreckless. It would be better to make some per sonal sacrifices and take the advice of the great Apostle; “That if eating meat cause my brother to stumble, I will eat no more meat as* long as the world stands.” It may be lawful for some to play Base Bad, but better to desist for the masses. We an* trying in an humble way to build up our town and county with the aid and assistance of its good citizens. If we are mistaken in our course, sim ply charge us up with ignorance pun* and simple. . A groat many who were never Support ers of Gov. Vardaman are very soiicitious about his welfare now and very much afraid he has made a very great mistake. Many of these same persons never will be ids political friends either. So far as we are concerned Vardaman may pursue his own course and we will criti cise him as we please on public matters and accord the same privilege to others. We expect Mr. Roosevelt to make us a good president in the future and Gov. Vardaman a good governor as in the past. Neither can run rough shod over the people, though the pea-nut politi ticians may feign mediation. The soon er the people let this class of people know that they are not needed ia busi ness the better for the women and chil dren and the rising generation. It is getting to a pass, it is said, to get a position in a country school one must apply to Mr. so and so. It should not be so. We have too much intringue and cunning craft. mis-named f called politics. The people are getting tired of such and talk more freely than some imagine about it. There are more pegs than holes— public portion UtaUfe 19 uncertain. The Lincoln count} Circuit Court con vened Monday. Tin* .)udge announced in his chalet* to tin* grand jury that tin* business ®f this term of court would be to sift the white cap business which is bringing into dispute tin’s section of Mississippi. All civil cases will bo continued until the third Mondry in .January, when a special term will be held for that pur pose. In anticipation of a vigorous charge an immense crowd assembled, probably a larger crowd than the court house has ever sin Itered before. lion. Thomas Brady, attorney of the Lincoln county Law and Order League, stated that a grand jury has been se cured that will perform its work without fear or favor, and he expects to secure the conviction of every whitecapper in Lincoln county. So strong is public sentiment against the “night riders" that Hon. J. \V. Cassidy, attornev for the Franklin brothers, charged with whitecapping and murder have with drawn from the defense, This in our opinion he should not have done on general principles; it is the sick who need a physician. Every one charged with a crime should have the full benefit of counsel and the law — not chiceuerv and malpractice, but everything in defense that is competent and legal. In this all will agree we are sure. Further: the Law and Order League is befog warmly commended for its ex cellent work. A letter has been receiv ed by Hon. Thomas Brady attorney for the league, written by Hon. .1. M. Dick erson, general counsel for the Illinois Central, a portion of which is as fol lows: “Asa Southern man living in the North, I can assure you that nothing is more detrimental to the progress of the South than acts of lawlessness, and sub stitution of Violence for strict enforce ment of the law. lamina position to fully appreciate this, for my sympathies are with the South, and at the same time I haye had, outside of the South, an apportunity of knowing how such blots upon our Southern civilization are detrimental to the development o c the country. Nothing will tend more to en courage development and tin; growth of healthful immigration than Hie suppres sion of mob violence.” lion. J. W.
