Special to Independent. Little Rock, Sept. 16.—“I have said from the first time the subject was proposed, that I have no intention whatever of calling an extra session of the legislature. This is still my in tention. Under the circumstanc es I cannot see that any good can come from it, whereas much harm might result. I have other plans in view that I hope can be worked out to take care of the expenses of the state charitable institutions and the necessary expenses of the state govern ment.” This is the statement made by Governor Hays Monday even ing in answer to a question as to whether he would call an ex tra session of the legislature for the purpose of providing a means for taking care of the expenses of the state govern ment. For several days, ever sslnce State Auditor Coffman offered the suggestion that the legisla ture should be called in extra session to borrow a quarter of a million dollars from the state capitol fund, Governor Hays has been the recipient of num erous messages from all parts of the state for and against the proposition, some urging him to call the session, and others be ing as urgent that he should not do so. Attorney General Moose ad vised Auditor Coffman Mon day, informally, that in his o pinion, Mr. Coffman’s plan would be unconstitutional, cit ing the following: “Article XVI, Sec- 11—No tax shall be levied except in pursu ance of law, and every law im posing a tax shall state dis tinctly the object of the same; and no moneys arising from a tax levied for one purpose shall be used for any other purpose.” “This makes it clear to my mind,” said Judge Moose, “that the legislature would have no power whatever to borrow any money from the state capitol tax to be used for any other pur pose than that for which it was specifically levied. It follows that if the legislature in the past / has diverted any specific levy for another purpose it has acted unlawfully.” Thus it appears that all pros pects ofi a special session of the legislature have passed, and that the administration will en deavor to make arrangements with the banking institutions of the state to carry its credit for whatever may be needed un til the revenue is «available next year. $25,000,000 For Roads. Washington, September 15.— A bill to appropriate $25,000,000 for the construction of roads in conjunction with the states and under the direction of a Nation al Bureau of Public Highways, was introduced in the Senate to day by Senators Thornton and Bankhead. The bill proposes that the states provide an equal amount Mitchell Wrote Davidson Fare well. Little Rock, Sept. 16.—That E. G. Mitchell, attorney for Odus Davidson, wrote the farewell letter which had Davidson’s name signed to it, and that Da vidson never saw the letter, was the statement of Prosecuting Attorney Seawell, who was in Littie Rock yesterday and who conferred with Governor Hays about the matter. After Davidson's execution at Harrison for the brutal murder of 18-year-old Ella Barham, a letter was produced purported to be signed by Davidson. In it the doomed man said that he realiz ed that he must hang, that there was no hope for him, but that he wished to declare his inno cence before he died. “In defense of Governor Hays,” said Mr. Seawell last night, “I might say that I strongly protested against a re prieve. When Mr. Mitchell filed his petition for a rehearing, he asked the Supreme Court to pass it until this fall. That is known. The record shows that at the time the supreme court denied his petition for the re hearing, it also denied his mo tion for delay. These are facts that cannot be denied, and show that despite charges Mr. Mitch ell has made against the govern or and others, myself included, he was resorting to trickery throughout the whole proceed ing, attempting to stay the exe cution of a man who was found guilty and who was guilty, and who, I have heard, was told by his attorney that he was guilty “The governor was actuated by the purest motives of right in refusing to interfere. “If anyone desires to know the full history of the case, I am willing to furnish data from the record. It is m;y opinion that a man who not only defiled one of the purest girls that ever lived in North Arkansas, but cruelly mutilated her body and laid it on a lonesome hillside for hogs to feed upon, was convicted of the crime and paid the penalty of death” l - Candidate For Treasurer. | Jesse W.

Jn no part of the habitable globe are there better lady riders than can be found in the west. A girl must be able to ride if she wants to visit her neighbors of ten. And how some of these young creatures can manage a horse! What pictures of beauty, daring and health they are as they come dashing along at full speed, playing games, chasing each other or racing just for fun Indeed, horseback riding is a common and easy pastime to a “wild western girl** just as trol ley riding is to a city girl. The Western girl goes every where on horseback. She can join a set of equine quadrilles or Virginia reel and gallop twenty miles on an errand without feel ing the slightest fatigue. She keeps “company,” goes to school, visits her “next door neighbor” (maybe fifteen miles away) all on the back of her favorite pony. Yes, the Western girl can cer tainly ride, as you will readily perceive when you witness the performance of the bevy of Western Beauties with Kit Car son’s Buffalo Ranch Big Three Ring Wild West Circus. Watch them in the Hippodrome Races; note their skill and fearlessness, be enchanted by their beauty, spellbound by their achieve ments, and awakened to the S pleasures and enjoyment of the ^ competition by their silvery | ringing laughter. There are many things worth seeing with this splendid attrac t ion, but not one prettier or more likely to be a gratifying after thought in your memory than tlie lovely wild Western girl with sparkling eyes and rosy cheeks who flashed by you on the back of a plunging steed. Will exhibit in Newport after noon and night, on Wednesday, September 17. (Adv) Will Mudj Agriculture. Special to Independent. kittle Rock, Sept. 1(5.—Agri cultural Commissioner John t-J.
