Same being for materials furnished by plain tiff to defendant in the erection of the house now situated on said land. This the lRt day June,. 1908. J. W. BUTLER, Countable. Negro’s Political Doom. Jackson News. Several of the Mississippi ne groes who followed off after For akerism and were deprived of seats in the republican conven tion at Chicago, propose to or ganize a new political party. A meeting with this end in view was held in Chicago just after the convention, and the Record-Herald, in speaking of the matter, says. “S. A. Beadle insisted that there were but two courses ope n to the negro, one was the organ ization of a new party and the nomination of a ticket for which the negro could vote, and the ot her was to call upon all negroes to vote the democratic ticket as a rebuke to the republicans. For the negro to stay away from the polls he declared would not bring about the desired result.’’ Mississippians who know Bead ie and other Forakeritesy in this state wiil read the above with broad amusement. There is a possibility, of course that a few negroes in the north may vote the democratic ticke t, but down in this neck of woods they will not have an opportun ity to do so. As a quick and satisfactory me thod of settling the so-called political phase of the race pro blem, the organization of a ne gro political party would be just what both democrats and repub licans desire, and it is to be ho ped that if a movement with this ena in view is launcnea it will be given every possible encourage ment, for it would result in the repeal of the fifteenth amend ment within less than five years. The negro has never been wel come in the democratic party, north or south, and the day is at hand when he is no longer wel come in the republican party. During the republican state convention held in this city last March one of the most promi nent white leaders of the organ ization remarked to the editor of the Daily News: “Were it not for the fact that it is necessary to make up a del egate organization in each coun ty, and we are at present unable to get white men for the purpose we would not tolerate the negro for a single day. I believe however, that the day is coming when we can get rid of them completely, and we are working quietly with this end in view.” Sambo is becoming. iess and less a factor in political affairs with each passing day, and the action of the republican conven tion at Chicago was the entering wedge of a movement that meant his annihilation. Mr. and Mrs. Parker left this week to spend their vacation in Georgia.

Hundreds of People Here The old fashioned “Fiddlers Contest” was pnlled off at the Court House Tuesday morning with a good crowd present. Al though there was some confus ion ove the question as to wheth er the date should be postponed, the crowd and fiddlers came and the contest took place. The contestants, numbering twelve, selected the three judges namely John B. Rains, Geo. W. Mc Pherson and J. W. Austin. The program was that each contestant should play three pieces to be selected by himself. Sheriff Trapp intro duced the contestants and an nounced the names of their se lections. The names of the se lections were familiar to all the older members of the crowd but the younger set were greatly amused at the names of some of the pieces- Among the favor ites selections were: “Old Mollie Hare”, “Leather Britches” “Cotton Eye Joe” and “Nubbin Ridge”. As each contestant took the stand he seemed to be inspired by the applause of the crowd ana tnrew nis wnoie soul into the music. It was very evident from the expression of some of the older members of the audi* ience that the old time feeling that creeps over the young when a set is announced at a country dance, was coming back, and it was a hard matter for them to keeg their feet still. The young did not control themselves so well and there was the evidence of a disposition to “trip" the i light fantastic toe" although dancing is now considered one of the worst of sins. After the selections had been rendered the judges retired and in a few minutes returned and announced the awards as fol lows:— First Prize—A $50,00 gold watch, donated by people of the town, to Walter Vinson. 2nd. Prize—Pair $5.00 shoes, donated by Sims-Dillard Coal Co 3rd. Prize—Set silver spoons, donated by Hough the .Jeweler, to H. M. Sample Jr. 4th. Prize—A fine violin, dona ted by P. D. Lawrason, to Dave Lawhorn. 5th. Prize—Fine razor and ■shaving outfit, donated by Trice Raymond Hardware Ce, to J. |L. Oswalt. 6th Prize—Silver watch, dona ted by Asa W. Allen Co. to Lon Powell. 7th. Prize-Silver watch, do nated by citizens, J. L. Tackett. 8th. Prize—Stetson Hat by tt• i i\ i r • t »• nmus rjius., iu uige j-iesue. 9th. Prize—Safety Razor, by citizens, to Bill Lawhorn. 10th. Prize Safety Razor, by citizens to Ison Parham. 11. and 12th. prizes two silver headed walking canes, with names engraved, made by A. G. Hurlbert and donated by citizens Sam Boren and C. W. Butler. In the afternoon the crowd as sembled to the Court House and was entertained with vocal mus ic conducted by Sheriff Trapp Profs. Stanley, Gardner and Bal lard,with Lon Cates and Chas. Sims as ushers. At the close of the eveniner’recess the brass band entertained the crowd from the gallery with strains of well ap preciated music. The band boys are to be compli mented more than any of the performers as they are home talent, and now occupy the foremost position as modern players. The Fourth of July will be cel ebrated in the south without the firearm attachment that kills and maims the celebrants. - Bar becues and oratory arc enough lor southerners. P. A. Green. After an illness that covered the past two years, Mr. P. A. Green died at his home in this place at an eariy hour Monday morning, surrounded by his fam ily and a number of close friends.

The Supreme court on Monday handed down an opinion affirming the Judgment of our Circuit Court awarding J. T. Nickerson £7,500 damages against the St. Louis and San Francisco R. R. Co., at the November term 1907, for the loss of a foot in the yards of the road here in Tupelo. Nickerson was a bi'akeman on the front of the train. His train came in from Meridian and was heading in the yards and just as engine passed the depot Nicker son attemp ted to step on the foot piece on the cow-catcher, but slipped. His foot was caught under the cow-catcher and drag ged to a frog and there mashed off. It was the contention of the plaintiff that had the frog been blocked it would have bee n im possible for his foot to have been caught and he would have sus tained little or no injury. The road took the position that plain tiff was acting in violation of the rules of the company in at tempting tp step on the cow catcher, and further that it was the policy of the road to leave the frogs unblocked as it was the experience of tl,c road that the latter was the least dangerous to employees. The supreme court held that the lower conrt had followed the law in its rulings md that the verdict of the jury md judgement should stand. Governor Chamberlain says that he doesn’t want to be vice-pres ident. Maybe John Allen will ;ake it’ if they will let him live in Tupelo-—Hattiesburg News. -*-, , ■■■■■aKHMaRasEBagaMBn LET ME HANDLE IT Do you own property that wor ries you?
