If Conner is elected governor we are usured a clean, honest, bust- I hess-like administration of the affairs of the office, and we will no tender 1 be forced to apologize for the acts of our chief executive. O- - - The "Mississippi Club" at Peabody Normal, composed of qualified elec- tors from this state, took a "straw ballot.". For state revenue agent, W. J. Miller received 43 votes to Stokes Robertson's 32. A ballot taken by the recent grand jury in Hinds county gave Miller 13 votes and Stokes Robertson 5 votes. The people of Mississippi are opposed to "politiCal dictators" and men who have no in- terest in public office other than as it serves them.--Jackson Clarion Ledge:. A fcw people seem to be laboring under the impreion that Bilbo has some chance of getting in the second primary for governor, but we fail to see What grounds can be found for such a prediction. It is true that many people go out to hear Bilbo speak, jus for the fun that he fur- nishes, but when it comes to voting for him it will be entirely another matter. Just watch our prediction and see if he will not come very near holding up the tail-end of the ticket. The women of Mississippi, about I00,000 strong, dll see to it that Bilbo will never be elected governor of our late again. ----o At a big political gathering in Ran- kin county on Monday a bit of spice Wgs injected into the campaign as a result of the "join debate" between W. J. Miller and Stokes Robertson, candidate for state revenue agent. During Robertson's speech he charged that hi opponent, Miller, was being supported by the "anti" and by the Clarion-Ledger. When Miller took the platform he add: "Who are you backed by in this campaign, sir? By Governor Ru.sell, and I will leave it t'o the crowd present if I am not wimning with a better lot of fish than you are." Thi happy and .we|l directed dart hit its mark and was greeted yrith loud cheer, from the audience. The Moss Point Advertiser, one of the best edited papers in Mississippi, In the course of an editorial deploring the friction which has been injected into the campaign between Conner and Whitfield, concludes with the fol- lowing paragraph: "We are for Whitfield, and we don't care a darn who knows it. We are not losing any sleep however over the possibility of either Conner or Bell being elected, and we don't give a durn in that mat. ter either, for we recognize the fitness for the office, of all three. Quit fight- ing each other, gentlemen, and train your big Berthas on the common enemy. Lee Russell. Lester Franklin and Bilbo. are setting back hoping and praying for a repetition of the Johnson-Longino stunt. Paraphras- ing Whitcorpb Riley, 'the Russellite will git you if you don't watch out.' " Not a si, as far ss we have been able to ascertain, is supporting Bilbo. He makes a speech; stirs things up somewhat but when hc leaves he drops out of the world as far as that place is concern- ed and in about ten days he is com- pletely forgotten, How can you ex- I pect a man to make much of a race.l with this sort of handicap?Varda-I marts W ekl. ] Please bear in mind, gentle read., or, that the ,above slap at Bilbo is ' taken from VardRman' Weekly, and goes to show what political changes have taken place in the state in re. cent years. Ano.vay it expresses a truth that will be greatly in evidence after the votes are counted in the first primary. It is true that people turn out to hear Bilbo, but they do so simply to be cntertairedfor he is a past.master inthis ar'--but af- ter he is gone he is forgotten, and a for his votes, they will be few and far between. The Ne s Times-Picayune made a canvas of fifty-five of the eighty-two counties iu Mississippi in an effort to ascertain the standing of the five candidates for governor. This canvass wa made through eor. respondents wLo were asked to tare care and let their cst[mates be as unbiased as possible. The result was as, follows: Bell ................................ 17,330 Bilbo .............................. 31,884 Conner . ....... : .................... 38,122 Franklin .......................... 34,757 Whitfield ........................ 49,820 t Total., ...... . ............. 171,913 If this proves anything like a cor.] rect estimate as to the result of the " it will be seen that the inning wi}I bring a camuaign[ Whitfield and Conner, with[ th second stage lead.
