But the most Important Bide of the question Is that of trie "ultimate con sumer," who has an unquestionable right to be considered in any legisla tion which would tend to increase trie cost of living. Hence, ifitiny tax is imposed upon hucksters. In addition to that which they must pay to reach Cairo, it should be merely nominal to be Imposed for the purpose of res ulntion, or of revenue, as the law contemplates. STRONG RACE FEELING. There have been some very har.di thiiiRS said at some of the meeting of negro voters in the city and eoua tv diiiing the last several weeKS, which seem to indicate thut the lead ers of these voters are determined to arouse the race feeiing in connect ion with the coming primary election. At two meetings Elder T. A. Head Is said to have urged the voters of his race to do their duty by voting for Sheriff Nellis, saying they had no light to expect money for toeir voijjs as they had been paid -with the bloo4 of a white man (meaning the killing of Alex. Hallldty by Cte snerif.'s npgro deputies. At another meeting held in the county one of the negro speakers said "we have killed on? white man and ought, to have kille.i twenty." At stiH another the speaker said, "the only way we can get the respect of 'the white, man Is to stick a pistol ih' his, JTace.'.'. v , There lei every .' reason tov- believe that the negroes themselves are forc ing a race attgment at the primary, tion in November,' jf Sheriff Nellis shall be ' the nominee ; and it seems to devolve upbn the ; white voters of the city and county to recognize this continguency now a;nj cast ther votes accordingly. MOVEY SMAIXER IN SIZE. We haive all become so accustome i to paper money of different denomina tions belag the same size that it will seem queer to have it otherwise. Yet the ; government Is considering the advisability of reducing the bills to on-third their present size. The suggestion comes from Director Ralph of the bureau of printing and engravingr who says there is no rea son ,yhy -Twper -money .'should always be, so' many lBcb lone and . so many t wnlei He ca1citUUesjniat .tp g.vern jment, would save something MKf . $1,000,000 annually 'by' the proposal reduction, though to the lay mind it Is not exactly .clear iow this., would j be possibly Thef'saving is, of coupm.. on paper ami primers liiK, anti it , scorns hardly in the pa!e of posslbil j ity that the one-third off would mount i up to such a stupendous figure. But if it is true, then Uiere is an ecfSiL. oniy me government can practice without injury, or injustice to any body. Nobody-; will 'be jjiippped i't V , the payrosj' no 'salaries will be "dl jnlnished; only the actual amount if . papr r?n' our - currency will be- cut . doWtt.i The srna'Heri'.jlii will be. quit -jfls forcefulj.ln .the; .world markets us the displaced larger prototype; (i wLl occupy less room m uie purse, uui .i 'H1 pay for just the same amount of rvrchflseable goods as its predecessor It rnay be claimed that, because rf its diminutive size, it will be easily lost; but this objection is hardly tenable; for if we hold on to our dimes we can surely hold on to our five- dollar bills when we get them. An experiment In a small way,' has Phila Jelphiff and bas proved satisfac. tory. Bankers' all oyer the country are to' be interviewee as To the con templated change, and if tiie consen sus of opinion Is in its favor, it will Le made. Just why we are to have n small five-dollar bill is not explained. Perhaps it will shrink in time; but there will -be just as much buying poslbility left In them. t-ommercil Appeal.
