Wood clubs are the order of the day. _ Morrilton has launched a Wood club, 200 strong. The list of its members is headed by Chairman Armstrong of the state central j committee. ■ '" ... ■■ Half of the prohibitionists of Newport agree with the advo-j cates of license that no reform has been accomplished by con-| fining the saloons to one ward and believe that the present farce; is more apt to injure than help their cause. —..#» ^ Every prohi attorney lives in the wet ward and the license counsel reside in the dry ward. Evidently things are getting badly mixed in this little city, which has been so well doctored with law and all the technicali ties thereof. Bryan and|Hearst are to be as sociated in the publication of a St. Louis daily paper, so says ru mor. Bryan confirms the report only so far as to state that the Commoner will issue a daily edi tion in St. Louis during the na tional Democratic convention in July. _ Portia, the center of a good farming section in Lawrence county, has organized a Wood club of 125 members. The up rising of the people against Davis and Davisism is swelling to tre mendous proportions. When once a demagogue is found out the people may be counted upon to bury him deep beneath an avalanche of ballots. * ——— .. —■ ■■ .. To offset the apparent turn in public sentiment in favor of Car roll D. Wood the Davis conting ent claim that many of those who pledge themselves to vote for Wood have only done so as a joke. Men do not thus lightly hold their pledge and sense of honor, and this excuse is too flimsy. The only explanation that can be offered for the turn | ing of the tide is that the trick ery, deception and demagoguery of one Jeff Davis have been so clearly established that his cun ning resorts, evasions and wil ful perversion of facts no longer ! delude. -- The voters who heard Jeff i Davis last August in his speech ! at the Swifton barbecue and at i Newport the same night will re member that he sought to escape responsibility for the pardon of Dr. Johnson by asserting he had been deceived by Fuller & James, the Eureka Springs attorneys who had made application for the pardon. But when Davis later visited the home of these men he took them into his arms and laid the blame upon the penitentiary physician. What think ye of this man who makes one asser tion here, then doubles in his tracks and makes an opposite counter? To which audience did he speak the truth, if to either? There are a hundred such glaring inconsistencies in the record of Jeff Davis and if given a third term there will be an hundred more. Such a double-dealer would ever stand in need of vin dication were he to grow as old as Methuselah. $390 FOR LETTERS TO ENCOURAGE EMIGRATION. The Rock Island system offers twenty prizes of the aggregate value of $390 for letters relative to the territory along its lines in Arkansas, Indian Territory, Kan sas, Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico. Letters should deal with the writers’ experiences since he settled in the Southwest. They should tell how much money he had when he arrived, what measure of success has attended his efforts and what he thinks of that portion of the country in which he is located. Letters should not be less than 300 nor more than 1500 words in length, and will be used for the purpose of advertising the Southwest. Letters are desired not only from farmers and farmers’ wives, but also from merchants, school teachers, clergymen, from every one, in brief, who has a story to tell and who knows how to tell it. For circular giving details write to John Sebastian, Passenger Traffic Manager, Rock Island System, Chicago. A MAN OF COUR AGE AND BRAINS. Mr. Vandeventer is out in a letter in which he announces his withdrawal from tfce race for governor. He clearly demon-! strated to the people during his canvass that he was a man of j courage and brains, and but for the landslide ^o Wood in the be ginning he would have been a j great favorite with the anti-! Davis element. As it is, the peo-! pie will not forget his brilliant j efforts, made under great disad vantages, against the nightmare of Davisism which affects Ar kansas today, but will remember and reward him at some future time. His withdrawal insures the election of Judge Wood, as his following is not of the sort that could support the unsaint like Davis.—Drew County Ad vance. _ _ HARRISON HEIRS SUE ADMINISTRATOR. The Harrison heirs, through their attorney, S. A. Moore, have filed suit against C. B. Coe as ad ministrator of that estate and his j bondsmen, G. W. Decker, A. D. | Bailey, J. M. Stayton and R. M. Johnson, for a sum between $15, 1000 and $20,000, alleged to be j due them. RAILROAD RUMBLINGS. It is announced that 147 car loads of steel rails have arrived at Carthage, Mo., to be used in lay ing the track of the White River railroad, which is being built by the Iron Mountain from Carthage to Cotter. J. C. Jackson returned Tues day night from a trip fifty miles up the line. He hauled a load of baggage for a crowd of Austri ans, who were bound for Kene fick & Hammond’s camp. There were 71 in the gang, all walking, while Mr. Jackson drove the wagon. He says one got sick, one got lame and all got drunk, but, nevertheless, he got through all right. He reports that, leav ing out the gap between Yellville and Powell, all the grading is completed to Oregon Flat, ex cept a little in the town of Zinc. ^Cotter Courier. People expecting to visit the World’s Fair in St. Louis will be glad to learn that no validation fee will be charged on world’s fair excursion tickets except where stopovers or additional ex tension of time are requested. All that is to be required to make a ticket good for return passage is that same shall be presented and stamped at any one of the three validating offices on the grounds, down town or at the union station. One of the largest passenger trains ever run over the Iron Mountain, was No. 5 Monday morning, consisting of sixteen coaches, one of the sleepers be ing named Newport. The train reached from Main to Laurel streets, or three long blocks, and was most too heavy for the big engine ahead, as it was several; hours late, not reaching Newport j until after 7 o’clock.
