From the Issue. Some of nav friends, the ene my, are very much disturbed be cause “Governor Vardaman ha,s remained silent during the dis cussion of the executive coating entfund,” The cause of the silence was simply this: I knew that every dollar of that money wa% pro perly used as the law directed. It was accounted for as the directed. The vouchers or mem oranda were in the governor’s office when I left it I knew that the resolution was ... . introduced and passed by the legislature directing the joint committee on contingent fund to investigate this matter was done for the purpose of placing me at a disadvantage before the peo ple of Mississippi. The person who introduced that resolution knew that these vouchers were not there and al so knew that the memoranda was missing. It was a deliberate, prenicious effort to put a cloud upon my record as governor. A little dir ty politics. In other words, it was the method of the assassin to mjnre my character. This matter has been gone ov er and arrangements made by those in authority now, and they knew it was impossible for me to make an itemized state ment showing the whereabouts of the vouchers, etc. Now, all that I have to say is: This money was used by me as governor as my judgement, and my coscience dictated for the sole use and benefit of the state. It was not appropriated to my personal use. In reimbursing myself for tra veling expences for any pur pose I only took from the con tingent fund the amount I spent. In visiting some of the state’s institutions delays in returning home made it necessary for me to spend more money than the institution paid me, and I drew that money from the contingent fund, as I had a right to do. As governor. I was a very busy man.. I endeavored to look after the details of every institution and every department of the govern ment, where it becomes my duty under the law to look after it. What expenses were incurred in the performance of that duty I drew from the contingent fund. And no more. That is all there is to it. This effort to make it appear that I have misappropriated the people’s money is false, and the men who do it, know it to be false, But they will assassinate my character in order to promote the political interest of some body else. I want to say this further: It is manifested that the “conting ent fund” is going to be one of the dirty methods employed by the “opposition” to encompass my defeat. Ido not make this statement regarding the conting ent fund to convince any man in Mississippi that I did not misuse the contingent fund. If there is a man in the state who believes the lies that have been published about me he* will believe them still, though I should deny them. If he has any doubt about my fidelity to duty and loyalty to the people while governor, I do not want his vote for the^senckte. If he think me capable of any thing of the kind, Ido not care for bis support. Those Ties of "Boyhood. How delicious wero the pies of boy hood. No pies now ever taste as good.

He is a poor friend who will* let politics or politicians mar his feeling for those who may hap pen to differ with him in opinion. Friendship is but a light and well nigh meaningless term to him who will allow his feelings to cool towards another because of any difference along political lines. The politician who has alienated you from your friend, because you differed as to his merits, doesn’t care a straw for you except for your vote to aid him in his ambitious schemes. Away with all such! It is too insignificant try to keep. Give us the friend who allows no dif ferences of any kind to mar his friendship. Who is always true in his friendship anywhere and under all circumstances. A true friend is one who will not turn his back on you when overtaken by the direct misfortune; one who stick the closer in spite of calamity or calumny. Oh, if the hearts of men were full of such friendship how different this old world would be. —West Point Leader. Gentleman may differ and yet be friends.
