C., Sept. 20. —The Census Bureau today an nounced that the population of Little Rock according to the cen-' sus of 1910. is 45,941 being an j increase of 7,034 or 19.9 per cent as compared with 38.307 in 1900. The census of 1890 gave the population as 25,974, that of 1900 being an increase of 48.1 per cent. This announced of the popula. tion of Little Rock is a great dis. j appointment to the people oi 1 Little Rock, who had been con fidently excepting a much larger figure. It should be considered, of course, that the census of 1900 and that of 1890 included also Argenta. which has since been separated from Little Rock, but still it was believed that the pop ulation of Little Rock itself would be much larger than the figure given. In the complete census report a footnote will be added about, the separation of Argenta, but as the population of Argen a has not been announced it is im possible at this time to give the combined of the two towns. The population of Argenta is being variously estimated at from 8, 000 to 15,000—Arkansas Demo, crate.

JOHN MITCHELL ON LIQUOR I am not at all impressed with the argument that if you close down the liquor traffic you bring about a calamity. When you shut down a distillery, a factory takes its place; when you close up a saloon, a grocery store takes its place. 1 believe that in the proportion that the labor movement grows so will the tem perance movement grow. Tne labor movement was not formed merely for the purpose of get ting more wages and shorter hours. If that was all, 1 should not consider it worth while to devote my life to it. The pur pose of the labor movement is to secure a better standard of liv ing and to make the lives of men, women, and children hap pier and brighter. MAYOR STARTED AS A FIREMAN Texarkana, Sept. 20.—John P. Kline, who was nominated for mayor of Texarkana, Ark., in yesterday’s Democratic pri mary, is about 50 years old and has lived nearly all his life here. He began life about 30 years ago as a fireman on an Iron Mountain locomotive engine be tween here and Poplar Bluff and later was promoted to the posi tion of engineer. About 20 years ago he resigned from rail road work and started in the bakery and confectionery busi ness, in which he is still engag ed. He has succeeded well in a business way, and for several years past has been regarded as one of the city's best financiers and most clear-headed busines* men. Last spring, during his atv sence in Washington, D. C., where he remained with his family for several months, he was put forward by his friends rs a candidate for alderman in> the Second ward and was elect ed, defeating his opponent by a large majority. He is thoroughly conversant with all the affairs of the city, and it is the generally expressed hope and belief of business men and taxpayers that he will be able in a few months to place the city on a sound financial basis despite the present deplet ed condition of the treasury. Mr. Kline is a conservative ant-prohibitionist. His oppon ent Mr. Rogers, whom he de featsd in yesterday’s primary, is a prohibitionist. Mr. Kline will be formally elected mayor st a special elec tion to be held September 2fi,and will take charge of the office im mediately thereafter. E. M. Conklin of Omaha Neb. has accepted a position with the Palace barber shop. We wel come Mr. Conklin to our city and trust that his sojourn here will not be limited and will b$ both pleasant and profitable. I)r. McDaniel o f Bouj?hton was in the city Wednesday. Dr. Sutton of Bodcaw was in town Wednesday on his way to Little Hock on professional busi ness. Our Fall Line of Ladies and Childrens’ Hats Now on Display. Styles are Up To-Date.
