SOME MISSISSIPPI POLITICAL HISTORY.
«
THE BOOK OF NOEL.
An Interesting Little Story Succinctly Told in Three Brief and
Clever Chapters.
CHAPTER I.
1. Row, in the days of James the Beau
tiful whose surname was Vardeman,
and who was the Mighty Ruler of
Orest Country by the Fathers
Waters.
2. There wm in that Country, a Pow
erful Clan which had theretofore
Governed its Institutions, and Grown
Fat thereon ;
8. So much an, that thn People every
where Murmured und said, "Lo,
These have Greedily taken more
than Just share ; let Them be east
ont and Others pnt In Their Plaees
we have No More of Them."
4. Therefore, being Importuned ae to
do -and because he Remembered
Certain Things-Jamea the Beautiful
raised his Voice unto the Legisla
tors of that Country and said,
6. "Let ns Smite the Clan both Hip and
Thigh, and Drive Them out."
0. And so they did.
7. And the Pie Counter, the Blind Tiger
and divers other Dark Rendezvous
whloh had Known Them so long,
knew them Not Again.
8. So, in that wise, it rame to pass,
thst tbs hands of the Powerful Clan
were against the Mighty Rnler, and
the hand of the Mighty Rnler was
against the Clan, even unto the end
of his reign, and aver afterward,
9. Now, the Leader of the Powerful
Clan was Anse the Discreet, railed
the "Big Man": and he was the
Whole Push with his followers, for,
with them
10. His Word was Law.
11. And, behold, the time drew nigh
when the Soepter should depart from
James the Beautiful, (or, so it was
written by George, the Great Law
Giver, in the Book called the Con
stitution, that
12. "The Succession Mast Change
Srery Fourth Year."
18. Bat, while this Event was yet s long
way off, Anse the Discreet called
together his Captains of Polltios to
Take .Counsel how they might, by
Stratagem, by Flank Movement or
Forced March, take the Citadel of
Power oaoe more, and
14. Regain Their Lost Estate;
16. For he was a leader never yet
Caught Napping when the Pie Coun
ter, or the fellow "wltb the goods
on him," was within Five Handrad
Days March of bis Kaneb.
10. And the chief thought of the confer
ence was, Whloh one of several Qual
ified Faithfuls, there present, would
be most Suitable to put Into the
Forefront of Battle (their names do
not matter now!)»
17. And sinoog all time Contesting
there for Availability and Selection
was one Earl the Eloquent, alias,
The Boy Senator.
18. But, behold, there was also another
of the Powerful C|an, mqre Subtle
even than Earl the Bloquent, in tlje
eyes of the "Big Men," who was
called tbe Truly Wise, alias, T**p
Wooderfn) Judge- railed a|so by
Charlie tira Braye, (ago,
19. Now Anse tbe Discreet loved this
One more than he did any of the
other»; not, forsooth, because he
would the more readily bend the
Pregnant Hinges of the Knee, but
because |w considered him the more
able to serve tbe Purposes of the
Clan.
20. And be therefore Diseonntod the
Claims of Bari the Eloquent, bemuse
be understood not the form and
and plausibility of Me efforts.
!l. He wonld pot allow the Traly Wise
to Contend before Him and the Cep
tains tor the Privilege of Standing

The Recent Double Primary Has Brought Mississippi a More
Wholesome Regime.
A Jackson special, under date of August 21th, makes tho following pertlnei t
comments on the results ot the recent primary elections in Mississippi :
"The voice of the majority of the people with a vote, who exorcised tho prlv
liege of using that veto last Thursday, will result in Bonding to the chair of the
chief executive of Mississippi a man who is in every way entitled to the honor
which his fiillo v o fcz »n
iiav* c » iftApce l ujk)
give to tho staU a sound, wise and conservative administration. The victory of
Mr. Noel is full of significance and means that atfltatlve, votegetting claptrap,
which was a significant feature of tho recent campaign, before each of the
primaries, is not

popular or effective under tho primary regime,
ai it was under tho old ^ conviction system. It means, too,
that tho days wlion mon could ho caught and their allegiance hold by auch clap
trap as has Imen prominent in tho rood it campaign are retired and their methods
along with them, and that whatever may*ho tho defects in and tho objections
tho double nominating primary, the démagogue loses out and tho safe and
and conservative holds sway.
"Mr. Noel went into the contest in 190.1, bolng the first man to definitely an
nounoo, and from the ond of that year, to and throughout the following year, he
continued actively at work, never going Into winter quarters or losing himself as
factor in tho no. He has und» a chan an! p irdsso it oanvm, (rao from pyro
technics, and with one or two notabio exceptions, and even then the fireworks
wore none of his starting, lint rathor originated among his more zealous and im
pulsive followers,

"The press of tho »dato and even tho paper* that wore more outspoken in
their support ot Mr. Brower, or to othord who wire In ths oanvass, bothjprior to
and following the first primary, are generally falling in line and congratulating
the state on the outcome. Mr. Brewer, as every one has had opportunity to dis
oovor, Is a brilliant man and one who would hold Ills own in any company, but it
has been decided that ho will do to hold onto ami koop in sigiit as an asset for
the future, and should ho cultivate the strength acquired and Improve by study
and experience tho standing whiuh ho has attained in tho state as a result of the
oampatgn, ho will lie a power to reckon with. This Is based on tho supposition
that tho man from Ooaluira », tho "bare-fo ited h iy", will in futuro avoid any suoh
entangling and, as it seoms, dostractlve alliances as those whioh shone as a fea
ture of his recent campaign, and especially the last two weeks. Mr. Ilrewer has
contended all along that he was not I lentlll id with the MoLinrins, or with any
other clan or ollqno, hat the surface Indications went to disprove thst conten
tion, and those with eyos open cuuld see for themselves and take note.
"But the presa is together they are united in congratulations to the man from
Holmes upon his most signal victory, anil to the "bare-footed boy" on the splendid
run that he has made."
