The Knoxville Tribune says, “some politicians make as much noise and bawl as loud at weaning time as any calf.” A traveling man asked a pretty hotel waitress if she had frog legs. “No. sir,” she said, “but l have three big brothers. ” Then the drummer ordered ham and eggs. A North Carolina man left his son a large fortune on condition that he refrain from playing a fiddle or dancing.

Mississippi Will Bar Them. If Organized It Must Be As Entirely Distinct Body. Jackson, Miss, April 12. -That some of the members of the Far mers Union are opposed ’to in- j eluding negroes as affiliated members is indicaeed by the ac tion of the executive committee j last night, which was outlined in the following statement: “Seeing so much in the papers recently concerning the position j of our Union on the subject of organizing the negroes in Miss issippi, we deem it advisable t<> state our position. “The white union in the state has not and will not ‘have any thing to do with the effort to or ganize the negro. We are op posed to the white union, or members of the same, having anything to do with the organ ization of the negroes. Any officer of this organization taking part in the organization of the negroes, will be expected to re sign and withdraw from the un ion. “If the negroes see fit to or ganize, with organizers of their own race, an entirely distinct body, we shall not attempt to in terfere, nor will we have any thing to do with the matter.” the ijosition, as ontlmeu by the executive committee, while it will appeal to the majority, and would be sustained by the locals, has naturally some oppo sition, as there are those who believe that the organization ol‘ the negroes would be a step in the right direction, and would certainly have more of beneficial than harmful results, but they i seem to be in a minority.

AGAINST POLITICAL MOOCHERS A bill is being prepared for in troduction in the next legislature, aimed at a political moochers. It ought to pass, and any con vention of olhco-seokcrs wotdd vote unanimously to report it fa vorably. The political moodier has be ! ... come a positive nuisance and it is said that in the recent ^am paign there was an organization of twenty professionals in Little Rock whoj worked the candidates systematically and like a pump handle. It is proposed to make it a felo ny to solicit money from any can didate for office, and if this should pass if would not prevent j it absolutely, but would have a [deterrent influence for good. • The average candidates will testify that the greatest drain upon his resources comes from this class of parasites who hold up the aspirant for office as the legal prey of the flock of buzzards who hover around every election. The candidates know that few of them have any influence, and that their own vote may not be (lelivered even if paid for, and yet they dare not refuse the in sistent demands for “a loan of $5,” or for an advance of $10 for whiskey to get the boys of Lone Fork township drunk so that they will vote as the moodi er directs.
