one of the hardest fought battles ever
waged in this resort by the temper
ance people. Hot Springs saloon inter

of the year the thirsty visitor and resi
dent alike will be able to walk Into
saloons and cafes and select whatever
hla fastidious fancy may dictate. Th
petition fcr licensed saloons, which re
quired that .',1 per cent of the white
adults attach their signatures to It as
evidences that they were In favor of
this business, was held, afttr two
weeks of continual legal buttle, to
have the percent ape of signatures re
quired by law.
Hot Springs Needs the Money.
Hot Springs was Interested In this
proposition for two ruasons. Roth
were about equally Important. With
out the revenue from the saloons, the
city government would have bepn
bankrupt. There would have been no
money, it Is said, with which to keep
the schools and fire and police de
triments going. On the other hand,
saloons were deemed ne'cessary to th(!
visiting fatronnge. for, had the city
gone "dry,'' It was argued that the
present season would have fallen off
In the beginning an agreement was
obtained between County Judge Koh

HOPE FOR RELIEF SOON
Proposed New Structure Will
Help Orchestra Composed of
Pupils, Pfominent Feature.
It i- of vast interest to the people
uf Cape (lirardeaii to learn of Un
surprising increase in the attendance
at the puhlic schools of tdis city.
At this the third week of tde second
hall of tde year, the enrollment shows
about I 1 7-1 pupils in all of the schools,
all increase of J.'i I according to the
records of last year at this time.
This "goes to show that, the growing
population needs more provisions, and
that the new school liuildsings cannot
he completed too soon.
It is to he hoped the new aildi
tious to tde Washington and Line
coin schools will Le completed Lefoi
the opening of the next school year,
though it is hardly expected that the
new Cent nil Luilding w ill he ready
for occupancy by that time.
The work going on now in the
High school is worthy of particular
notice. It is so crowded at present
that there tire ISO more pupils than
can lie seated without doubling,
again showing what a blessing the
new buildings will lie.
The manual training and domestic
science depart mcnts under P. Whit
ledge and Miss Kmily Kvans, shows
a wonderful amount of success ac
complished in both of these depart
ments, and should receive great en
couragement from the parents of the
A new and special feature of thc
High school is the splendid orchestra
under the leadership of laigene Hrowti.
These young folks furnish the music
for the exercises held every Friday,
at which some prominent man of
town is asked to give a talk to the
classes. These talks are usually of
great intcre.-t to the pupils and are
eagerly looked forward to each week.
After th Game.
"Well, anyhow, Miss Vassal-, you'll
admit that our boys played very well.
The game was lost through just, one
error." "Yea, so was Paradise."

The Attorney General Makes
Statement About Decision
by Judge McPherson.
PREDICTS A BIG VICTORY
Believes Judge McPherson's Sug
gestion as jo Filing Suits
is Only Jest.
.lelTci'sun City. Mo., I'eli. .'. At
torney (ielieral Parker has is-ued t he
following statement, explaining thc
recent decision of Jmli-e Mcpherson
in the state lute case-;
"I have ju.-t heard that Judge
-McPherson da refused t,, further
entertain jurisdiction in the Missouri
rate cases and has said that I may
go a head with my suits in tde ,tat'e
court. Tdis is a splendid victory
for the State and imaii.- that tin
railroads will have to pay hack to
the people all that they have taken
from tin in in excess of the legal rate.
' The State (,f Missouri was com
pelled to pay and did pay large
sums of money itself fur the travel
ing expenses of its employes, and
also for freight taken to its institu
tions, in excess of the legal rate,
and 1 have sued upon In-half of the
State of Missouri to recover this
excess and, incident ly, I have sued
for all shippers and passengers simi
larly situated. 1 thought that inas
much as it was my duty to sue for
the State to recover the Statr'H
money, that I might as well in one
suit recover for all shippers ami
"This decision of Judge Mcpher
son's atis that I will win my suits
against the railroads ami n-eovei
for the Stale ami all -dipper- ami
pa-.-engiis all the money which tdey
have expended .luring

Vited to lile I heir claims with t hese
masters, hut 1 do not want any claims
sent lo me, hul want all p. isot..- to
wait ami lile them with tie- Ina-tets
"In a very short time, then-fore,
I expect to recover for nil shipper
mnl pa.-sengers in Missouri the money
which was taken from them in excess
of the legal rate. The railroads ale
paying hack in Minnesota, Wiscon
sin, Oklahoma, and Arkansas, hut
as usual they make a light in Mis
souri, hut it will do them little good,
since Judge McPherson has in effect
luhl that thev mu-1 pav this inunev
"ll seems as if Judge McPherson
could not resist all attack upon the
State courts where I have brought
my suits and, while he relimpiislicd
jurisdiction, he prophesied all kinds
of trouble for claimants in the State
courts, hut the people of Misseuri
have sulbreil so much in his court
that I hey will avail themselves, with
plea-ure, of the opportunity to mii
in their own courts, and we do not
even care what, he says about our
suits. We thank him fur letting us
git out of his court. We certainly
call Wave no worse luck than we had
with him for nine years.
Will Stuy In Own Courts.
"Inasmuch as the railroads have
announced that they intend to fight
each claim to the bitter end, it. nec
essarily follows that no shipper can
afford to sue them and take the chance
of having to go to the Supreme
Court of the 1'nited States. There
would not Le enough in it for him.
Therefore, I have sued for the State
of Missouri and also for each shipper
and passenger in Missouri, and I
think the State of Missouri will Le
able to and should recover this money
for these shippers and passengers.
They cannot afford to litigate this
question with the railroads, and the
State should ami will do it fur them.
Of course, if any shipper desires to
sue independent of the Stale he may
do mi, hut the expense and trouble
will Le so great that I think he will
gladly permit the State to sue fur him.
I do not anticipate any further trouble
We will win.
"McPherson suggests that shippers
can do hitter by suing before dim in
tde federal court than Lefore their own
circuit judges in the State courts
I do not think Judge McPherson
really understands. Missourians. The
suggisiioe of Judge McPherson is
really f;;nny and perhaps was intended
as a jest. Missourians will always
-lay in their own courts."
I'lie matter of the application of
P. II. Hook for a license to operate a
saloon at thc Present t bar ill this
city came up Lefore the County Court
in Jackson Tuesday morning. The
petition was accepted and license
