The Register, of Clarksdale, Miss., the home paper, printed in the home town, of Eirl Brew er, is out in a column editorial r'ffc'uuiiitmg the r.-.an ucoignateu by John Allen as a “vile wretch,” and who is now a candidate for a state office. The Register says that the Mississippi Legislature made an investigation of the charge of bribery brought by this man and by an overwhelming majority reported that this charge was false. That the Yazoo jury also repudiated this man and acquit ted Dulaney, and it was proven that some of the money whi> h had been used by Dulaney for bribery was not issued by the government until after the al leged bribe had taken p’ac 3, “In short,” The Register says, * ‘to believe that man an honorable gentleman and a "faithful ser vant of the people, it is necessary to convict an entire Legislature, a judge on the Bench, and a Yazoo county jury of most un bridled wickedness apd corrup tion.” It is said that Earl Brewer does not want this man elected, and who can blame him? At one time Earl Brewer was" also the principal owner of the Clarksdale Register, and it is understood that he is still one of its stock holders. That makes the editorial quoted above more significant than tvef.—Clarion Ledger. W H.JCLIFTON, W.
