The Bolivar Bulletin.
Hugh Williams, Editor. Friday, December 2, 1904. Tub St. Louis Exposition, the greatest in the history of the world, closes to-day. The Governor of Mississippi wears his hair entirely too long. Thk price of cotton is declining, and those who claim to be posted predict a farther drop. Neverthe less, producers are holding, and a very large per cent, of the crop in this county remains to be marketed. A dozen magistrates could do the work that forty-seven are now doing in Hardeman County with greater satisfaction to the people and less cost to the tax payers. We have yet to hear of a single county redislricted that has cot been pleased with results. Gilbert D. Rains has purchas ed the Memphis Morning News and announces that it will shortly be changed into an afternoon paper. Senator Carmack, it is said, will be part owner and an occasional con tributor. Walter Holmes will be business manager, Embry Holmes managing editor aud W. W. Hav wood will continue as editoria writer. Complete official returns from every county in the state except two give the following vote in the Gubernatorial race: Frazier 129, 480; Littleton 101,343; Frazier' plurality 28,137. No returns have been received from White or Union Counties. McMilliu's majority in White County four years ago was 1,010 and McCall carried Union County by 937. Unofficial advices from the two counties indicate that Frazier's plurality in Whije will be slightly greater than Littleton's ma jority in Union County, making the democratic plurality iti the 6tate in excess of 28,0QD. The total vote in the state will be slightly in ex cess of 235,000, which is nearly 40,000 less than the vote four years ago, and almost 90,000 below that of 1896.- Gov. -Frazier's majority will exceed that received by Mc Millin in 1900 by over 2,000 and will be almost two thousand larg than the plurality given Turney in 1892. It i9 the largest majority given a democratic candidate for Governor in a Presidential year since 1876, when James D. Porter received a plurality of 45,000. LEE CHANDLER CAUGHT. Oil the evening of Sept. 13, 1901, Hardy Walton, a highly respected farmer, an inoffensive, harmless citizen, was killed a few miles from Bolivar. He was assaulted by Taylor Chandler and his son, .Lee (Jhandler. liie father is said to have provok ed the difficulty, and his son came to his assistance, deal ing Walton heavy blows over the head with a plank, from the effects of which Walton died several hours later. Taylor Chandler was arrest ed the following day and has since been confined in jail here. Lee Chandler made his escape. The Governor offered a reward of 150.00 for his arrest and conviction, which was supplemented by an additional reward of $25.00 from Sheriff Smith. Des criptive circulars were print ed and mailed to different places where Chandler was supposed to have gone. At Cleburne, Tex., a man tally ing with his description was detained by the police, and a special deputy and personal acquaintance was sent to identify him, but he proved to be the wrong man. Chand ler, in the meantime, claims to have been at work near Cairo, 111., and on Saturday morning last decided to re turn home. He left the train at Jackson and walked to the home of a relative, Jim Doolon, of the 16th dis trict of this county, where he was arrested by Daniels and Mitchell, young men of the neighborhood, and was at once brought to Bolivar and jailed. Chandler claims that he returned to surrender to tu onftinrifiPQ nnrl tW i ' m uu.v " , ecor-mical administration. Our had not learned of Walton's m-jjoritiea have been materially re death, 'ducedwhen they should have been General Lee's Punctuality. "Recollections and Letters of Gen - 1 t, x. .1-1 . : tj erai uoutn . L-jr u. x.. Xj. ijee. My father was the most punctual man I ever knew. He was always ready for family prayers, for meals, and met every engagement, social or business, at the moment. He expected all of us to be the same, and taught us the use and necessity for forming such habits for the con venience cf all concerned. I never knew him late for Sunday service at the Post Chapel. He used to ap pear some minutes before the rest of us, in uniform jokingly rallying my mother for being late, and for for getting something at the last mo ment. When he could wait no lon ger for her, he would say that he was off, and would march along to cTiu-ch by himself, or with any ot the children who were ready. There he sat, very straight well up in" the middle aisle and, as I remember, always became very sleepy, and, sometimes, even took a little nap duiing the sermon. At that time, this drowsiness of my father's was something awful to me inexplica ble. I know it was veiy hard for me to keep awake, and frequently I did not; but why he, who, to my mind, could do everything that was right, without any effort, bbould sometimes be overcome, I could not inderstand, and did not try to do so. No Likelihood of New Apportion ment. Washington, Nov. 24. Southern Senators and Representatives now in the city do not anticipate that the Republicans will seriously at tempt to cut down the Southern representation in the House at Jjie coming seesion of Congress"."" This feeling seems also to prevail among a great many of conservative Rep ublicans who have been'approacbed. Little or nothing is heard that would indicate any intention to stir up the South afresh cext wiuter. A prominent Senator fro-n the South, discussing the question to day, said: 'I never believed the talk was more than a campaign slogan, de signed for consumption in close Northern States where the negro vote was thought to be of impor tance. If the Republicans in Con gress should really attempt serious ly to carry ou. the declaration of their platform along tliia line 1 should be the most surprised man on earth. "The plan has no popularity anions: the more thoughtful aud un biased men of the Northern Stales, audits attempted execution would bring the Republican party a degree of unpopularity ia its on strong holds, for which no loss it could io rlict ou the South would compensate in any way. "At any rate, there would be no time for the carrying out of the plan of reduction at the short t-es- .. rm "ill eion ot Congress, mere win De too many matters seriously deruand- ig attention too many that of necessity must be left over until the next se3sion to leave the pursuit of this phantom within the domain of present probabilities. "Of course, I may be mistaken. It may be the Republicans will as- touisbrme by an- actual effort, made in Congress, to reduce the represen tation of the Southern States; if they do, I am free to say, I shall be very much astonished, indeed." Tennessee Expressions. The. legislator who smashes the insurance lobby and "their political allies will have served the state ex ceedingly well. Franklin Review Appeal. The coming session of the Legis- ature would win a name anu re- ceive the plaudits of the people if the major portion of the senMun was devoted to repealing many of the ool and unnecessary laws with which the statute books are now burdened.

Some mem ber who wishes to do hn state a Bervice should, in the meantime, se cure a copy of the 'Mississippi va grancy law, and see if that will not tit the crime, for if vagraucy isn't a crime it is crime s twiu Drother. Tennessee is no place these days for vagrants, either white or black. Those who will not work should be made to get out.

There has been much bolting in Tennessee tin year, ami this is al ways to be regretted, and if all par ty breaches can be healed instead of widened, it will be a good work done. Cne factiou knifinj another is. productive of no good, and the sooner it is ended the quicker will come the day . when Republicans will not be a balance of power' as between warring Democratic tac tions. Looking at it as a matter of partisan punishment it is just to ex clude them, but the healing of dif ferences will take a broader scope if it can be done. Obion Democrat. .1 .1 Public Sale.
