J Shep herd, a Pine Bluff merchant whose store was burglarized, asked that the sencence against Nathan Moore, a nepro former ly in Shepherds employ and who was convicted of the burglary, be set aside and the negro given his freedom. Governor Pindall has issued a proclamation of par don to Moore. The burglary oc eured some time ago and the negro has served more than a year of the three years’ sentence given him by the jury. Shepherd stated that he was w: mg to take Moore ‘back into nis employ and believed that the nds of justice had been met. it is said shat the conviction was m purely circumstantial evidence and that Moore’s parents are darkies of the old Southern plan tation type, strickly law-abiding and feei very keenly the disgrace of their son’s conviction. A lengthy petition signed by a num ber of prominent citizens of Pine Bluff was offered in behalf of the convicted man, and the Gover nor finally allowed the pardon.

Waller. w. c, t. o, [Mrs. Jennie (ar Pittman, tdtlor.l THE MODEL LICENCE LEAGUE In contemplating trie vigor with which the “Model License League” is pushing its nefarious business, pretending to get so very good all at once, we are re minded of the fact that one of the saloon’s most audacious gra ces (?) is cowardice. Why? Weil, in the first place it barricades itself behind stain ed glass windows and opaque doors; it screens itself from the public eye: it is the only busi ness on this earth that hires a sentinel to guard the door against the approach of an officer; it markets its wares under a false bill of lading: it sends confiden tial “green goods” circulars through the mails, offering to chip to private customers its dis tilled deceit in disguised pack ages “without any marks or brands to indicate the contents of the boxes.” So intolerable has this sneak ing method become that some of the states are enacting laws pro hibiting these false labels. Tin whole liquor business is a cow ard. It strikes in the night; it works under cover of darkness; itstabsthe unarmed in the back; it assassinates the character it can not debauch; it attacks de fenseless womanhood; t eoesnot spare the nursing child. Let’s grind it to death with the strong arm of prohibition. CHEWED UP A FIVE DOLLAR BILL Recorder Faust, one day last week by mistake, took from his pocket a $5 bill and chewed it to pieces. It seems that he is in the habit of chewing (the rag) paper while engaged at work and I being busy at the time did not notice his mistake until iie spat the small pieces out upon th1 door He says from this time on he will get his money all in silver. He should be careful and not get any counterfeit silver as in ca. ' he swallowed any of it the con sequences might be disastrous.* Benton Democrat. The above named gentleman is a printer and is employed on th* ; Times-Courier at Benton, and | the strange thing is, how in th* ! world did he happen to have a * five dollar bill.

HITCHCOCK LEADS DOUGAN 588 VOTES Miss Almand Polls Good Vote But Miss Wilson Still Leads Her 421 Votes Only thirteen hundred and some votes polled since yester day, and a great many of these were single coupons, cut from the paper. There are many sub scription coupons out, and as there is no time limit as to when they must be ixdled. a deluge of votes may be expected at any time from now until the contest closes, al 4 p. m., June 1. As business proposition this contest is all that could be ex pected by the Picayune’s publish er. It has not only been the means of collecting many dollars past due on subscription to the Weekly Picayune, but we now have a Daily list of three hun dred and fifty bona fide subscrib ers, and have added many new names to our weekly roll. The fact that our list is not a dead one, and that no one gets t e pa j>er unless he or some friend has paid for it, ought to appeal to the advertising public that the Daily Picayune is now a fixture. Very few daily papers in a town the size of Prescott can claim three u indred and fifty bonafide subst ibera enrolled for the first mont' of its existence, but the Daily Picayune can, and its publisher will make affidavit to that end if .ailed upon to do so by advertising patrons. We expect to run our list up to 500 before the contest closes. The vote today was Hitchcock 448, Dougan 556, Daniels 250 and Moncrief 102. Miss Almand 967, Miss Wil son 139. VETERAN CONTEST. L. P.
