S. Stephens, announcing the passage by the senate of the Myers mussel bill. COURT HEARS ARGUMENT. When Judge J. M. Jones convened county court Monday evening, the attorneys for and against license hav ing rested their cases, so far as the presentation of evidence was concern ed, the argument of the counsel was heard. S. D. Campbell and G. A. Hillhouse spoke for the opponents of license and M. M. Stuckey, J. M. Stayton and Gustave Jones represent ed the petitioners. Judge Jones took the matter under advisement, reserving his decision, which will probably be made with that upon the petition from the Jack sonport district. On Tuesday morning, the attention of court was occupied with the Jack sonport district petition and census, until noon, when at the request of the prohi attorneys, court was adjourned over until seven p. m., that the attor neys opposing license, may have time to review the Jacksonport district petition and census. MYERS THANKS SUPPORTERS. Defends Crowfoot Provision Of Orig inal Bill—Says Foreign Influ ence Was Responsible For its Defeat. Business Men’s League, Newport, Ark. Gentlemen: — I beg leave to thank you for the interest taken in behalf of my bill which seeks to protect to our people an industry that annually will yield from one to two millions of dollars. A few pearl buyers and shell buyers from the north have succeeded in practically killing the bill by allowing the use of “Crowfoot.” Now as you know there are many sufldcient means of catching mussels without the crow foot which actually destroys ten tons for every ton landed. And while it took many years for the mussels to oover the bars, the crowfoot will in two or three years destroy them all; then our factories and shellers will all j be out of a job. For once the mus sels are destroyed many years will be required for them to be replaced. If we could force out the crowfoot the supply would not only be ample but would last for years. 1 do not seek to injure the laboring man but to pre vent the destruction of the Goose that lays the Golden egg. I send you copy of Gazette in which I have defended the bill before the Senate Committee, but so much pressure was brought to bear upon the Committee, there only being three of that Committee pres ent, by the Northern button factories, that the crowfoot was allowed to re main. You can easily see why a few t:hell buyers and pearl buyers oppose the bill, as they are not tax payers and citizens. While to stop the crow foot would be a loss to the Northern buyers and a slight inconvenience of the shell hunters yet the continued use of the crowfoot means the death kneli of a great industry for the state. Yours truly, (Signed) J. H. Myers. ONE-WAY RATES.
