Tallulah, Louisiana, - Saturday, October 24, 1914.
One of the amendments to be voted on November 3rd
is No. 17-the last on the ticket-providing for the recall -
of public officials. This amendment should be defeated,
for the reason that it permits 25 per cent of the legal
voters to launch a political campalgn at any time that
number may see fit. Thus a small bunch of sore-heads,
defeated in a previous campaign, can involve the officers
elect in a second campaign- Under this law but little
difficulty will be found in getting enough disgruntled
voters together to order a recall election
It is true that they will generally meet defeat, but the
turmoil and expense necessary in the election will bear on
the people. We have too many elections now and no good
reason appears for increasing the number.
The officers of this State have on the whole been
honest and capable, and the odds are that the officers
elected under the existing laws would at least measure up
with any elected under the proposed recall amendment.
The past record of the sore-head voters does not inspire
much confidence in a scheme that will leave an open field
for satisfying their political grudges. The law is not
needed and if adopted can accomplish no improvement in
So when voting November 3rd don't forget to swat
number 17. Dont forget the Nunber 17.
Sir George Paish, representing the English Treasury
is still conferring with Secretary McAdoo and members of
. Federal Reserve Board, in connection with the exchange
and cotton situation. Some surprize will be felt by the
statement of the English representative that the English
spinners are not buying cotton for the reason that they
Sare not certain that the bottom price has yet been reached.

the present discussion continues no relief can be expected,
and spinners will hold their money until they know that
the product has reached the minimum price.
With their usual liberality the New York bankers are
willing to subscribe to the $150,000.000 cotton pool upon
the condition that they shall have first lien on the cotton
pledged. The details have not yet been agreed upon, but
we venture the guess that such conditions will be proposed
as will make impossible the consummation of the pool.
An examination of the returns from the income tax
Indicates that about 140.000 less citizens are liable to the
tax than was calculated by the experts who made up the
chedule for congress. This isnatural. It is a common
practice to overestimate net incomes, and the discovery in
:the department proves the fact.
The Monroe officials are hot after the poker-players
tad Colfox has jailed a gang of boot leggers. American
betrties are fast being crowded to the wall. The next
thing we know some good citizen will be arrested for
beating his wife.
Mr. Bryan is quoted as saying that the present war
proves conclusively "the fallacy of the doctrine of pre
p aredness for war gives assurance of peace." He may be
Sbe right but we are loaded for bear when we "trust inthe

"One of the best reasons why I would not be
without telephone service," writes a Georgia far
mer, "is the pleasure it gives my wife and the
knowledge that while I am away, she has the pro

On the farm the telephone dispels loneliness
and is the means of bringing help in any emer
