Major William Starling, of
Greenvivlle, Miss., died in that city
on the 10th. Major Starlitig was a
Civil Engineer, and was Chief En
gineer for the Board of Mississippi
Levee Commissioners for many
ycars. At the time of his death he
was connected with the levees under
the government. He was a writer
of note on the improvement of the
the Mississippi river.
It will he, wtll for those persons
who expect to continue to deal in
pistols and eartridges to know that
after the Ist day of January, 1901,
it will be against the law to sell
these things without first pirocuring
a license, whic·h is $50 for selling
listois and *25 for selling car
tridges. We doubt if the law will
reduce the sale of either pistols or
cartridges, biat is a good thing to
increase the revenues of the State.
The Daily States of Monday says
that "'in less than one minute after
the replort on the cotton cro!,, as
tprepared by Statltician IIyde, of
the Agricilttl.d lDepartniment at
Washilngton, was posted in the Cot
ton E,.hagne, cotton fell one-half
oent per ji,,tLil. At noon it had
only regaiticl i . pIoints above the
opening. T'liuc relding of the report
was heardt by a maty cotton men
and brokers as coiild crowd on the
floors of the Exchange. There was
great excitement and the keenest in
terest manlfes~te.d. Computation
shows that the fall of a half cent
per pound, o.r ~.51) per bale, means
exactly a dicline of $25,250,000 on
the entire; crop of 10,000 bales.
This decline was made in less than
a minute, thus conv\eying the woid
erfuil effect of the report, which was
in itself a very short document."
Bishop Salter, a colored divine,
recently gave the following good
advice to the ministcrs who preach
to the members of his race: "I
have no respect for a man who is
untrue to his wife. Take care of
yourselves and take care of your
women; respect them and protect
them; honor your women, for you
can rise no higher than they are.
The Auglo-Saxon has built a lofty
parapet and armedl it, and he who
dares assault it with impure motives,
dies. And my advice to you is to
follow that examlle. Beautify
your homes; spend yeur spare time
and money with your wife and
children. Do thi, and the world
will rspeot you. The future is
bright; the chasm is closing up; the

political party, in caling such elec
tion shall, at the time of making such
(',all, adopt a resolution which shall
"First--That a primary election
will be held, giving the time when,

elections will le held and the hours

't h ird-The object for which the
k ,tihon is called.
.Fourth-The qualifications re
quired for voting, in addition to
those prescribed by the election law
andt the Coustittion of this State."
.The succeeding articles provide, in
(,r-il for penalties for violating the
provisions prescriIhoelain such elec
1tions, applying rules anld punishments
much thesame as in regular elections.
The ohject of the law is clearly set
forth to be not only to legalize and
safeguard such elections, but to pro
tect them from the interference of
piartizans of another lpolitical faith,
adul to force those who submit to
such arbitrament to stand to and
abide ,by the result.
The real pith of the act is found in
Sections 1.5 and 16, as follows:
Sec. 15. Be it further enacted,
etc., That no one who participates
in the primary election of any politi
cal party shall have the right to par
ticipate in any primary elelioun of
any other political party, with a view
to nomninating opposing canlidates
nor shall he lie bperitted to sign any
nomination lalers for any (4plposing
cand(iate or canliduates : nor shall he
ble permitted to be himself a canti
ilate iln oplosition to 1any one nomi
cated at or through a primary elec
tion in which he took part, nor with
in four years thereafter shall he he
capable of holuling an appointive
office as the appointee of any officer
not belonging to the pohltical party
in whose primary election he lirst
"See. 16. Be it further enacted,
etc., lthat the State Central Com
mittee and the various )istrict and
Parish committees calling primary
elections, shall have power to aihdpt
such rules and regulations for the
Scondeuct and government thereof as
they may deem tit; ,rovided samne le
not inconsistet with thile provisions
of this act, anui for the lprl)ose ,f
suc'h lirimary elections, such rules
and regulations shall have teI force
and effect of law in so far as the par
tils larticipating or attemlpting t<,
participate in such pi imary elections
are concerned; proviled, further,
that 1l4 rules and regulations male
or adopted by any subordinate com
mittee, shall be subject to revision
or modification by thile executive con
mittee of the State Central Commit
tee on appeal by any person or per
sons in interest."
We believe this act to be a wise
step in our election affairs. Prim
ary elections will becomne popular au11
tonclusive in future, for they will be
a real test of the strength of a candi
late before a party triiunal, and the
matdiates of the party, thus express
ed will be enforced.

GEO. S. OWN,
The laws both State and Federal
prohibit riding or driving on, or use
of levees as roadways, and the River
Commlission has gone so far as to pass
a resolution that no federal money will
be expended in localities where the
law is violated.
Inspectors will be instructed to re
port all violators of the law for pro
tection of levees to the Grand Jury
after January 1st 1901; this date being
fixed to allow Police Juries time to
provide necessary roads.
