Minor Wallace of Prescott, former member of congress and distinguished lawyer and lecturer, delivered a pro hibition speech on the streets of Ash down Saturday afternoon. He spoke in front of the Ashdown Hardware Co. store after having been introduced by Judge J. S. Steel. He w.as heard by a large and attentive crowd for more than an hour. This was the opening gun at this place in the forthcoming fight against the repeal of the state wide prohibition act, the repeal of which lias been initiated. The address of Mr. Walla-e was along educational lines. He drove every ar gument home with telling force. He is known as the silver tongued orator of Arkansas, and he is devoting all his time and talents to this fight. His first turned his batteries loose on the ‘‘local self government” argument which the whiskey forces are using. He disci;!** - it from its legal status to prove that the enforcement of prohibition invaded no fundamental constitutional right. Granting a liquor license was giving a man a legal right to do wrong, and no man had any constitutional or any other kinds of rights trampled upon who was forbidden the right to do wrong. He piled up the cost of the liquor traffic in America until the fig ures were staggering to the imagina tion; the cost in money, the cost in human waste measured in dollars and cents, as an economic loss to the nat ion, the cost in lives, the widows and orphans and poverty, and the toll it paid into the maws of the white slave traffic and prostitution as products of the saloon. He made point af'er point which would be impossible to mention here, but which made a deep impress ion on those who heard the address.

From the Hope Herald: | H. H. Orton, manager of the Unit d Oil Mills' plant at Ashdown, is in the city today. In conversation with the Herald man he stated that a splendid rail* fell at Ashdown yesterday, and among ether things he is responsible for the following hard luck tale which comes in from one of his clients. As t that gentleman from Little River coun ty tells it. he was called over the long distance telephone today by one of his clients at Mineral Springs, and this is what Mr. Orton heard over the wire: | “I am in trouble.” The manager 1 cp cried, “why?” and was a bit non plussed when he heard further: “We had a fine rain here yesterday, and this morning I ordered my hands to go to w,ork plowing over the cotton. But. they struck and refused to carry out my orders.” This statement caused the oil man to wonder and become curious. He understood, when, this came from the other end of the wire: \ “My field hands complain that the cotton bolls are now so numerous on the stalks that it is impossible to plow without sustaining fearful cuts and bruises on their shins. They refuse to proceed unless I promise to furnish an ample supply of Hunt’s Lightning oil for physical repairs.” The oil man had nothing further to say, but we wonder if he didn't think of the old negro song—“Prosperitee.” -u lUiUlSH ('OAST RAIDER ]!<ml»s Dropped by Airships hut >« Oi tails Given.

But the convention Saturday, by a majority of one vote, endorsed Governor Ferguson and elected a strong anti-prohibition delegation to the state convention. There tyas a hot fight, but the antis had a majority of one in the conven tion.
