VOLUME XIII NO. 244. _ PRESCOTT, ARKANSAS, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 28, 20. PRICE FIVE CENTS
FOURTH SESSION
MOST IMPORTANT
THREE GENERAL SUBJECTS ARE
PRESSING FOR RECOGNITION.
MAJORITY OF SESSIONS WILL
HE FOR GOOD ROADS ACTS—
OTHER CONSIDERATIONS UN
LIKELY.
Little Rock, Jan. 28.—The fourth
session of the Arkansas eGneral As
sembly in thirteen months convened
at noon Monday. In some respects
it will be a most important session,
probably as mucht for the things it
does not do, as for its positive acts.
The decision of Gov, Brough not to
issue a supplemental calj for the in
clusion of other subjects of legisla
tion has left it wholly within the pow
. er of the Legislature itself whether
it will take up anything other than
roads, schools, and drainage laws, new
and remedial.
There are at least three general
subjects that during the last few weeks
have been pressing for recognition.
These are the movement started by
the Stuttgart city council to abolish
the Arkansas Corporation Commis
sion, in which fifty other cities have
united; the change in the date of the
Democratic state primary to an ear
lier date to permit the election of del
egates to the National Democratic
Convention; and the enactment of the
Arkansas National Guard.
Pressure has been brought to bear
upon the Governor from many sources
to induce him to issue a supplement
al call, but he has been convinced that
there is too much doubt as to the
effects such a call would have on the
work of the session and no chances
are to be taken this time.
The major part of the legislation
htis time will be the same as that of
the regular session and extra session
No. 2, that of good, roads. But this
session will not be as ready to pass
anything and everythnig offered to
many proposed districts, and it. is ex
pected that this will be so strong
that Senators or Representatives will
in many instances not have tthe tem
erity to introduce bills which they
know will draw fire of a spirited op
position.
There has been no diminution of in
terest in the good roads program, but
many feel that a good thing can be
carried too far some times. And thhat
balance wheels are an essential part
of any effective machinery.

started,” is the opinion that prevails
among many . And this is strengthen
| ed when the taxpayer stops to medi
tate upon the cost of the roads pro
gram. Like all good things in life,
good roads come high. For instance,
it hrs been estimated that the roads
proposed for Pulaski county will cost
practically ten million dollars, and
that this will add about 25 mills an
nually to the present tax rate of 33
mills. It is enough to cause the
most enthusiastic good roads promoter
to pause and suggest caution.
And when the law-makers have dis
posed, of all the road acts, they may,
on a two-thirds vote of the elected
members, take up any other subject.
It is the prediction of those who
have been watching the situation most
closely that they are not likely to
consider anything more than is in
cluded in the original call.

Through life insurance a msn can
create an estate worth thousands of
dollars by an initial payment of a hun
dred or leas, and yeairly payments of
a like amount.
' He may die during the first year,
but the estate created is immediately
available to the benefieisries.
For the msn of modest means there
is no place offering greater security,
satisfaction and grsster financial re
turns than a policy in a reputable
company.

POLITICAL HORSES
JOHN A. RIGGS FIRST CANDI
DATE -TO OPEN HEADQUAR
TERS IN LITTLE ROCE—FORM
RE CONGRESSMAN J. C. FLOYD
LATEST POSSIBILITY FOR GOV
ERNOR.
This will be an important political
week, and it is expected there will be
numerous scratches in the entry list,
and that practically all the dark
horses will be brought out and groom
ed for the various races. If by any
chance there should be a change in
the date of'the primary, moving it up
to May, the political mill will be
gin to grind at a lively rate. The
political leaders of the various coun
ties will be on the ground, and thehe
are also likely to be strong delega
tions here from many counties, so
that the candidate will have big
picking.
The first of the state candidates to
open headquarters in Little Rock is
John A. Riggs of Hot Springs, the
Suffrage candidate for Governor,
whose headquarters were opened this
morning on the second floor of Glea
son’s Hotel, in the rooms used by
Gov. Brough, when he was a candi
date. Mr. Riggs says that he is a
candidate to stay in until the last
vote is counted and that he is con
fident the majority will be in his fa- j
vor.
"it isTbelieved the next two weeks
will determine definitely the line-up
in what has been the most remarka
ble guberantorial free-for-all ever
staged in the state. Former Con
gressman J. C. Floyd of Yellville, is
the latest possibility and he and a
score of others will probably decide
without much further delay upon
their course.

Washington; Jan. 27.—Extension of

HOUSE PASSES RESOLUTION
.... TO ADJOURN NEXT TNESDAY
Little Rock, Jan. 28.—The House,
this morning passed a resolution by
Thompson of Independence county to
adjourn sine die next Tuesday and
then recalled it from the Senate for
reconsideration.
Forced sale of government ships was
suit in a bulk of ships falling into
the hands of a few concerns.
Mr. Haines urged Congress to give
business interests a chance and not
“sand bag” them by forcing the sale
of government owned ships without
giving them a fair opportunity to ac
quire the vessels. John W. Thomas of
Colorado pleaded for an American
owned and operated merchant ma
; rine.
Questioned by Chairman JoneB, Mr.
, Thomas said that trade routes are be
i ing opened to Central and South
America, with indications of great
future development. With cnotinua
! tion of these lines there will be no
trouble, he said, in financing any
business proposition in these coun
tries.
“The United States is on the verge
of a commercial war,” Mr. Thomas
said, “and we feel that Congress
should stand by and see that there is
no interruption to routes already
open and no Sale of the Emergency
Fleet Corporation ships which would
close them and concentrate the busi
ness in the bigger ports.”
Mr. Thomas said it is his idea that
Congress should define a shipping
policy and direct some agency to put
it into effect.
