NO EXTRA SESSION. - | Governor’s Private Secretary Says Davis Would Not Convene Legis lature if Every M’an, Woman and Child Would Petition Him to Do So. Little Rock, Aug. 26.—Replies con tinue to come in from members of the legislature to the proposition of Sena tor Paul G. Matlock for an extra ses sion to be without cost to the state, for the purpose of passing the deaf i mute appropriation bill. A few are opposing it, but the great majority are expressing themselves as favor j able to it. It is virtually settled, how ever, that there will be no extra ses sion. Private Secretary Charles Jacobson, in discussing the matter, said: “The Little Rock papers are wasting much space in printing letters and inter views from members of the legisla ture relative to an extra session. You can state positively that there will be no special session of the last legisla ture. Gov. Davis would not convene it if every man, woman and child in the state would petition him to do so. There is something back of this extra session talk that has m t yet appeared on the surface. The Scheme was in spired by the governor’s political enemies and it required no political sage to catch on to the trick. The deaf mute institute will be provided for and it will not be done by an extra legislative session. The talk and agi tation is pure nonsense.” BIG LAND OPENING.

Manning of Clarendon was in Pine Bluff the other day en route home from a business trip up the road. He says that the commer cial interests of Clarendon are pros pering and that the town is rapidly coming to the front as one of Arkan sas’ best cities. “I am out of the race for governor,” he said, when quest ioned upon the subject of politics, “because my business interests will not permit me to spare the time. The campaign was begun entirely too early for one who has business inter ests to look after to make the race. I firmly believe that Jeff Davis’ star is waning and that he is not half as strong today as he was two years ago. The people are finding him out and I believe will repudiate him at the next election.”— Pine Blujj Graphic.

YELLVILLE WON EXCITING GAME. — The Yellville team were given a close and exciting game up to the ninth inning, when Bandy came in for a number of good bits, which together with a bunch of errors, netted the visitors live runs. In the last half of the ninth Grosser knocked the only home run of the game, a beautiful ball over the center field fence, which scored two runs, but Yellville’s bat tery soon put the finishing touches to any lingering hopes of the Newport fans. Sixteen hits were scored off Bandy, 10 off of Woodward. McGregor’s work behind the bat was good as was also Yellville’s catcher. The receipts were $32.25 or about $20 short of the ex t ■' penses. Thos. Henry umpired a very satis factory game. The line-up was as follows: Newport versus Yellville Thornton 1 b Medley R. Richardson r f Gurley Mulheron 3 b Ruddle Slatheny 1 f E.
