Batesville Board of Trade is of the
opinion that a bridge ought to be
built across White river here, and he
is also of the opinion that the great
trunk line of railroad north and
south will eventually be built, and
that Batesville will be an important
station on the line.
He has ope 1 a correspondence
with the engineer for that railroad
at Minneapolis, and expects to hear
from him within a few days in re
gard to the matter.
No complete survey of the road
has yet been made, but Mr. Webber
is in receipt of a letter from a man
who is in close touch with the pro
moters of the road, and the letter

In view of the fact that Mr. Web-'
ber is of the opinion that a bridge 1
ought to be built, and that if possi-,
ble the railroad people ought to be
interested in the construction of the
bridge.
However, Mr. Webber says he be-:
lieves if the railroad people are not
now interested in the construction of
the bridge, that should not delay its
construction, and it ought to be built ■
any way. He believes, however,,
that when the bridge is built it ought i
! to be of sufficient strength and size
। to accommodate railroad traffic, as
well as wagons and other vehicles.
IHe points out the fact that if the
bridge- is built large enough and
strong enough for all kinds of traf
fic, if any interurban line or rail
road should at some future time
want to use the bridge, then it could

SPECIAL SUPREME COURT

volves Legality of Other Acts.

Little Rock, Oct. I.—A special
supreme court heard the case of J.
W. Ferrill vs. John H. Keel et al.,
from Jackson county, Monday, a
case involving the question of the
proper form of the enacting clause
of acts passed by the legislature
since the adoption of the I. and R.
amendment. The court consists of
J. H. Herrod, chief justice, J. V.
Walker of Fayetteville, J. M. Hill j
of Fort Smith, J. W. House of Little i
Rock and J. H. McCollum of Hope, •
associate justices. The regular bench :
was disqualified, as the general act !
appropriating their salaries is in
volved, indirectly.
The papers are boosting Bill Old
field as the man to beat Senator
Clarks two years hence. As •this
paper has said before, as between
Clarke and Oldfield, we would sup
port the latter, because Oldfield is ,

BOYS:
<T Every boy is a minature business man.
If he manages his little business affairs
with credit to himself, he will be a good man
ager of big affairs later in life.
The best way in the world for a boy to be
come a good manager is to have a Savings
Account, think twice before spending, and
keep the account growing.
This bank wants to be a “partner” in the
business affairs of every sturdy, sensible boy in
Independence county by helping him to save.
The First Cash Prize for the best kept bus
iness record to be shown at the Boys’ Demon
stration Ch b next month, is offered by this
bank with the view of assisting these boys
along the line indicated.
We hope to enroll the names of every
member of the Boys’ Corn Club in our Savings
Department by the time the present crop is
gathered and marketed, and would be glad to
show them in person the many ways in which
we can help them.

COMMITTEE EXPECTS
$20,000 FROM ARKANSAS
Democratic National Campaign Man
agers Fix This As Reason-
able Subscription.
It has come to the attention of
the managers of the democratic na
tional campaign that Arkansas has
been laggard in sending subscrip
tions for the national campaign fund.
The managers of the campaign have
fixed the sum of $20,000 as areas- 1
enable subscription fund from Ar
kansas, but up to the present time
only about one-fourth of this sum
has been raised, and not many days
remain until the subscription to
democratic success in November will
have little effect. The following
letter has been received by the man
agers of the newspaper campaign in
Arkansas, but the sum mentioned as
being raised by the newspaper cam
paign is now above $3,000, instead
of only $2,809:
“As you have observed in the
published report of contributions to
the democratic national campaign
fund, the state of Aikansas is cred
ited with only $2,809. I am sure that
this showing will be far from satis
factory to any Arkansas democrat
interested in the success of Wilson
and Marshall, and that the efforts
of yourself and other members cf
the Arkansas finance committee will
be directed towards bringing about
a rubstar thil increase of this sum.
“Manife tly it is not a good adver
timement for your state, which is
ore of the rock-ribhed democratic
states in the union. I am sure that
you would not want the election of

’NAY CALL AN EXTRA
I SESSION OF CONGRESS
i
■ Men High Up in Republican Coun
cils Say Call Will Be Made
By the President.
’ Washington, Sept. 29.—1 tis re
. ported here tonight on an excellent
; authority and also a diplomatic de
. nial by President Taft's secretary,
. that the president is preparing to
> call an extra session of congress to
. consider armed intervention in Mex
. ico.
• The president, it is understood, is
i to place before congress the record
; of an accumulation of outrages and
, other foreign incidents of the trou
-1 bled southern republic calculated to
; make that body take decisive action.
Without giving the motive of the
i administration for such step, it is
i conceded by all that if congress does
authorize intervention it will change
I the horizon.
It is pointed out that a war ad
ministration has never been turned
out of power by the voters. It is
bad policy to trade horses while
crossing a stream.
A telegram has been received here
in which Senator Dick of Ohio, who
. is now in Chicago, is reported to
i have told C. T. Fowler of New Jer
’ sey that a special session of con
gress will be called by President
Tafc.
Senator Dick is quoted as saying
that the president will present to
congress a plan to suppress the rev
olution which is of such a nature
that war will result in Mexico. Sen
ator Dick is at the head of .the na
tional committee of Ohio and it is
i admitted that he has been prepared
for war for some time.

Texarkana, Sept. 30.—About' 500
I people, more than half of them men,
; attended the mass meeting held at
the Beech street Baptist church yes
terday to protest against the move
ment looking to a return of the
saloons to Texarkana by petition un
der the three mile law. Senator E.
i F. Friedell presided and the addres^

COLLECT FRANCHISE TAX
. I
: Attorney General Believes Time for
Pavment Should Be Extended.
!
Little Rock, Oct. I.—Attorney Gen
eral Norwood Monday paid into the
- state treasury $2,256.35, collected on
account of delinquent franchise tax,
and there are several thousand dol
lars yet unpaid.
“The law provides," said Gen.
Norwood, “that we shall bring suit
against the delinquents, but as the
. law is a new one, we are writing all
t of them again before bringing suit
. for the collection of the tax and pen
■ I alty of 25 per cent. The law should
3 I be amended to give the corporations
3 more time to pay this tax. The or
. dinary taxpayer has from January
Ist to April 10th to pay his taxes,
s but the corporations are required to
I pay their tax between July Ist and
j August 10th. The law provides a
. complicated system of reports and
j certificates, and less than six weeks
is too short a time for it. I do not
s believe that more than 10 per cent
s • of the delinquents wilfully neglected
