LITTLE RIVER NEWS
Published Wednesday and Saturday GRAVES & GRAVES, Editors and Publishers. Entered at the postoffice at Ash lown, Arkansas, as second-class mail That lynching bee over at //New Boston the other night is but the fruits of the law’s delay, and may be lain at the door of the jury. A juror swears to be governed by, the law and the evidence sorely, but too often other elements enter into the consideration of a verdict, such as sympathy and other forms of sentiment. We see no reason why an honest and intelligent man may not render an honest and just verdict even though he had previously formed and ex pressed opinion. Nearly all men now read the papers, and nearly all men form opinions from what they read. The jury system is not perfect and never will be perfect until the men who compose juries are perfect. Since there was never but one perfect man we have at last ar rived at the point from which we started, and must acknowl edge the folly of criticising our courts. Isn’t someone overlooking a bet in regard to the city offices of Ashdown? The general city election comes in April, neces sitating a city primary early in March or before. There has been no talk of a candidate for -^mayor or any of the other offic es'. It is highly important that these places be filled with good solid men. The responsibiliti es of the Ashdown city officials have grown heavy since the large expenditures for public utilities and with the operation of the same pending. Think ing citizens should look about them for suitable and available timber for the places unless someone offers soon. Some of the towns have already held their primaries. The News is glad to note that Judge Jones is interested in the Jefferson Highway project and wili appoint delegates for the Texarkana meeting at the pro per time. The advantages of this highway should not be ov ei looked nor underestimated. The advertising value that it will give the towns along the line, to say nothing of financial benefits, will be equally as great as would be a new line of rail road. The Lincoln Highway in the northern states is said to be about as busy a thoroughfare as a busy street, national tourists, pleasure seekers out to see the country and spend money. The News still has room for more announcements in its col umn reserved for that purpose. If it gets full up we will run late comers over on the next col umn. No one knows for sure that you are running, even if you tell them yourself, unless they see it in the News. The News solicits no man to run for office, but will treat all aspir ants with the best of service and with uniform fairness in getting their candidacy before the voters. Since the withdrawal of Mc Rae South Arkansas seems to , lie taking its time about lining up. Those who immagine them selves to be political leaders are doing lots of talk, but the boys who do the principal part of the voting notice that the evidence keeps coming in and are in no particular hurry to rush out and declare themselves. General Villa is continually getting killed, captured and married again. He did all three last week from reports, which was quite a remarkable record for one week. This is the finest weather in the world for road dragging, and we notice that it is being practiced. Despite the unfavorable wea ther there is said to be more or less candidating going on. Think of all those cars of gasoline burning at Wilton at the present prices. , HONOR ROBT. E. LEE ! Ogden School (<he Celebration in the Honor of Robt. E.

GRAYSON Of Oraysonia, Clark County, Candi date for RAILROAD COMMISSIONER Southern District. Subject to the Action of the Demo cratic Primary, March 29.

BROUGH DID ROMPOLLl DURING HALF THE TIME HE HAJ RESIDED IN ARKANSAS—RE CEIVED APPROXIMATELY $30,00 FROM THE TAX PAYERS. WAS NOT A VOTER IN 1904-5-6-7-8 Paid Tax Only When He Began Run. nlng for Governor. To the People of Arkansas: The professor is strong for wanting to make other people pay their tuxes, but he is weak on paying taxes him self. For the first six years the pro fessor was in Arkansas (teaching po litical economy in the university), he drew approximately $12,000 from the taxpayers of the state, and only paid one little measly dollar in taxes back to the state. The poll tax goes into ♦he common school fund, to help sup port the common schools, and to edu cate the little children of Arkansas. The following table, taken from the records of Washington county, shows that he did not pay one cent of taxes for the years 1904, 1905, 1906, 1907 and 1908, although he was being fed and clothed by the tax payers of Ar kansas during that time.

I, Thad Berry, a notary public with in and for the county and state afore said, duly commissioned and acting, do hereby certify that, so far as I have been able to ascertain, after having made a diligent search of the records, t.he foregoing is a true and correct statement of personal and real estate assessments and tax receipt books of Washington county, Arkansas, so far as the same show any assessments made or taxes paid by Dr. C. H. Brough of Fayetteville, Ark. In witness whereof, I have here unto set my hand and seal of office at Fayetteville, Ark., this January 18, 1911. THAD BERRY. Notary Public. My commission expires February 1, 1919. Dr. Brough Paid No Poll Tax. The Doctor is strong for the Uni versity (paying him), but apparently does not care to help the common school fund himself. He talks about good roads, but for five years, while a resident of Arkan sas, he did not pay any road tax, the only road he cared for, apparently, being the road to the state treasury. He loves Arkansas tor what he can get out of the treasury, it seems. He came here to accept a well-paying po sition, and the chances are that when defeated in this race he may go West, where his fortune is located. He has been paid approximately $30,000 by the taxpayers of this state, and I un derstand forwards his surplus money to the Utah National F.nk, in Ogden, Utah, where he has wealth, estimated at from thirty to fifty thousand dol lars—thus not paying any taxes on this money in Arkansas, and depriv ing the banks of Arkansas of this de posit. Negroes to Be Assessors. He advocates the assessment of the real estate in Arkansas by the jus tices of the peace in each township, which he says will make everybody assess their property. It is well known that there are one hundred and fifty negro justices of the peace in South and *Rast Arkansas, i know that the people in those sections are not ror that plan, and that the white voters of the other parts of Arkansas will not force it upon their neighbors in that part of the State. I am not in fa vor of any new offices, but it might be well to employ some additional collec tor* in Washington County to help collect the poll tax from Professor Brough. We should not be surprised that the professor advocates negro as sessor a, as it is in line with his speech made in behalf of the negro race in Washington, D. C„ in which he said that the white man should not object to being the "winning part ner of the negro." Qualified Veter Only Six Years. The records of Washington County show that the professor has been a qualified elector of Arkansas only six years, although he has been drawing a high salary for twelve years; and everybody knows that he has been an ' avowed candidate for governor evei aince he began paying hie poll tax. If the profeisor voted in the va rious city, school, congressional, gen j eral and primary elections the five years he failed to pay his poll tax, he ! committed each time an indictable of fense. If he did not vote he was dere [ llct In his duties as a citizen, and it not worthy oi the support of the tax pers for any position, much lees for | governor of the great State of Arkan ; eas. He has been professor of poli ' tical economy in the university; hts main idea of political economy ap j pears to be tax dodging. Great Teacher This. A grea< teacher to Instill into the rising youths of the land the princi : pies of good government, when it ap | pears he himself wa6 shirking the i first principles of citizenship! He j tries to compare himself with Wood i row Wilson (what a shame!). He it j due the president an apology. If he did go to school to Wilson. Wilson couldn't help It; however, the facts are that he did not go to school to President Wilson, but was in another university where Wilson occasionally lectured. Woodrow Wilson was presi dent of one of the greatest universities of America for many years, but Dr. Brough has never been mentioned, nor even thought of, by any of the univer | sity boards as being qualified for the i position oi president of the University '■ of Arkansas. I am a native of Arkansas and have ! been a taxpayer ever since I was twen ty-one years of age; I do not believe the good people of Arkansas will de feat me for governor and nominate a man who is merely passing through this State. I have faith in the good people of Arkansas and I submit my candidacy to them. Very respectfully, EARLE W. HODGES Candidate for Governor of Arkansas. ARKANSAS FOLKS TELL ABOUT HEALTH A lot of Arkansas people are need lessly suffering from stomach ail ments. A lot of others have found a way to health and deliverance from the derangements of the digestive tract, which seems to be particularly prevalent in the South, by the use of Mayr’s Wonderful Remedy. There is not better proof of what this truly remarkable remedy will do than what it has done. Here are the words of two Arkansas people: WILLIAM A. HARMAN, tDeWttt, Ark., writes: “I took your full treat ment and was greately benefited by it, The amount of impurities removed from my system was simply wonder ful. CHARLIE SRENCER, Mouticello, Ark, writes: “I received your won derful remedy and did not take it right away because I thought the dose was too largo. But I felt so bad that I made up mind to take It, and it has worked like a charm and has helped me »;o much my stomach feels like a new one.” Mayr’s Wonderful Remedy gives permanent results for stomach, liver and intestinal ailments. Eat as much and whatever you like. No more dis tress after eating, pressure of gas in the stomach and around the heart. Get one bottle of your druggist now and try it on an absolute guarantee— if not satisfactory money will he re turned. adv No. 3 NOTICE.

It has been p roven that the majority of diseases arise from germs, but it is not widely known that a healthy sys tem will repel their attacks.
