POSTiF.ICE SCANDAL.
The lightning in the Post Office
Department investigation is be
ginning to strike about in places
close to the throne. Beavers,
who has given himself up volun
tarily after the police seemed to
be unable to get him, has had
Postmaster General Payne sub
poenaed to appear as a witness in
his case, and the P. 1. (;.
piromptiv repudiates the sulbpoena
and refuses to appear, lie says
he is sick, and llmuitt perfor;ce
spend a few weeks down at Vir
gainia Hot Springs to recuiperate,_
his health. lie probably knows
too much of the doings of his
private secretary, Mr. ii. 11.
Rand, inl conlvection with Beave\rs
and Machelien's industry in the
grafting game in the Post OtIce
department. and does not dt i're
to be questioned under oath.
In fact, he is doing all in hii
power to stop the publicity of
details of the Post Otlice Dep:art
ment ýcandal, a nd now lihe gives
ii. out that the end is in sight and
thtt there will be nothing inure
doing after the first of ()Ochucr.
lie know, full well that there are
too Imany inemllloers of C(' oress
iand repti!licau leaders mixe ti up,
in the matter who must protect
the looters, and some of thent too
imuch dread an investigation to
allow the matter to proce:d fur
ther. Such a competent machine
p:,iitician as the P. M. G. knows
thiat the republican party cannot
st:an I such hard knocks as it
has received by even a small part
of the scandal thus cxposiing to
tihe public view, an:d survive the
treatluent. How the republicani
party leaders are praying that
somnething will turn up to distract
the minds of the public from this
nasty mess. See how the Beirut
incident was seized upon to take
the mindiis of the people from the
scan tal croppi.ig out in tihe ad
ministration of the affairs of
government. The Panama Canal
affair is also being used to get the
minds of the people from the
rottonness of the departments as
-administered by the republican
party, but all in vain. Those
little incidents are but the won
tier of an hour, and the minds of
the people wander back to their
muttons, the scandals in the de
partments at Washington. Like
Banquo's ghost, they will not
(down, but return with perplexing
persistency to plague an adminis
tration that is rotten to the core.
T'he.people have a specific for
this cancer on the body politic if
they will go to the polls and ad
minister it. It is up to them.
The Rev. Sam Jones has finally
"met his match." He ran into a
Georgia postma.ter the other day
and got a lick in his mouth. The
Rev. Sam landed one blow on the
P. M. and his fist is not yet well.
The Baton Rouge Advocate
says: "Nail the first thief that
tries to steal in Democratic pri
maries, parochial, district or

The State Experiment Station

ugly looking bug.
All superintendents of public
education should be elected the
same as other offioers.
Another Saw Mill.
J. D. Moore, of Georgetown,
was a visitor here yesterday look
mig after the erection of a saw mill
on the line of the Ellen A about
eight miles from Winnfield in the
