County Judge May Set Aside Order
Of Two Years Ago After January
Eleventh — Prohis Seem To
Have A Card Up Their
With the preparations that are now
going on toward the remodeling and
vacating of store buildings, which
Lave been rented for saloon purposes
in the event that licenses to sell liquor
are granted by the county judge, it
becomes apparent that the date of
settlement of this mooted question is
near at hand. Two years ago on the
eleventh day of January, Judge O. W.
W. Scarborough granted the petition
of the prohibitionists, making illegal
the sale of liquor within a radius of
three miles of the Newport public
school house, which decision was later
sustained by the higher courts.
In the last November election, the
vote of Newport and the county at
large was overwhelmingly in favor of
license though the prohibition senti
ment has never enlisted a majority of
the voters either in the county or
In the opinion of certain lawyers no
ruling can be made by the newly
elected court until the expiration of
the two years of non-license, which
date falling upon Sunday, makes
Monday, January 13 the decisive day,
when the petition of those favoring
licensed saloons will be presented to
the county judge. It is claimed by
this side that their petition contains a
large majority of the adult residents
within the three mile districts of New
port and Jacksonport. The oppon
ents of license have been quietly at
work for several weeks, compiling a
census of the districts involved and it
is supposed that they contemplate
o o %> --V
The attorneys for the prohibitionists
in other contests of this kind have
usually asked for time to challenge the
qualification of signers, whose right to
such a privilege is douotful. There
are knowing ones who say that a tem
porary injunction will be sought from
Judge F. D. Fulkerson of the circuit
court, which convenes here the same
day, restraining the county judge from
issuing licenses that the legality of the
license advocates’ petition may first be
determined. The saloon men hope to
secure license and then fight the
question out in the courts while the
prohis seek a similar advantage and
will try to shut out saloons pending a
final decision of the case in the courts.
It is generally understood that in the
event licenses are granted, which
seems strongly probable, there will be
seven applications to sell liquor in
Newport. The prospective applicants

Hot Springs, Ark., Jan. 7.—It may

The Poplar Bluff postofflce has
broken another record. The receipts
for the year just past from the sale of
postage stamps and supplies amounted
to §19,242.54. This is a gain of §1,267.54
over last year, which was the largest
up to that time.
Poplar Bluff is now entitled to free
delivery and Postmaster Randles says
he will apply for it immediately. But
it is now up to the city, for Uncle Sam

Little Rock, Ark., Jan. 7.—Judge
Thomas B. Martin, the eminent chan
cellor of this district, adjourned his
court Monday until January 22, at
which time his successor, Hon. Jesse
C. Hart, will open the court. Judge
Martin was appointed chancellor by
Gov. Clarke eight years ago, and has
filled the position with ability, his de
cisions being frequently quoted by the
various courts of the country. Late
ly his health has been poor, and he
has not been able at all times to pre
side. Last night he left with his wife
for Corpus Ohristi, Tex., where he will
enjoy the coast breezes for a few
weeks. His retirement from the

igo Coroner M. M. Stewart was noti
fied that a car standing on the rail
road switch at Earnhearts, eight miles
ibove here on the new railroad, con
fined something which emitted a

very reason to think that some one
