Former Govermr Bilbo is pUtting fiht in his effort .econd vrlmry for guy- hut the voters of this state he is sc down to Bilbo The editor of Journal ,- d.e- sided, after careful considera:ion to support the candidacy of Sennett (Mike) Conner for governor, for what appears to him as excellent reaon. Intellectually, Mr. Conner is easily the equal of any of the candidates in the field. He has had eight years of experience in legislating for the people of Mississippi. And, being young, he still has the vision and the enthusiasm to see the possibilities of the future and to accomplish them which Mississippi 8o badly needs at this time at the head of its affair While young, Mr. Conner's enthu- siasm is tempered with judgment, as has been demonstrated frequently in his public life. He is not likely to be led by the views of selfish interests or profeonal politicianS; his ex- perience with them has been of too recent date. And, being young, he iill work harder and accomplish more for his state than an older man, even equally gifted, could possibly do. And the editor of The Journal does not believe that Mr. Conner would use his office to build up a strong p Htical machine for himself. Doubt- less he has ambitions; if he had not. he would not be fit for governor; but we believe that his honesty of pur- pose and cleanness and straightness of mind, will induce him to put his best ito the welfare of the state of Mississippi during the next four year. As an ex-ervice man. the editor of The Journal considers that none of the present candidates have any right to ask for the support of for- mer acld]erg as such. Every one of the candidates could have entered the army had the patriotic urge been strong enough. None went. Con- sequently none can claim that fra- ternal sentiment which binds ex- erviee men together. Mr. Conner has the strongest claim of any, for he tried. He shows, in writing, the refusal of Adjutant General Scales to accept his enlistment. So that if that question s brought into the campaign at all, Mr. Conner is en- titled to the greater consideration by virtue of his effort. These are the reasons why we shall vote for him: because, further, we think Mr. Conner's best is Just a lit- tle in advance of the best of any of the other candidates--for Mississippi. --H. R. B. in McComb JSurnaL The above editorial by Mr, H. lsy Bouncy, editor of the McComb Jour. hal, expresses the sentiments of the great majority of the ex-service men Mr. Bonney volunteered at the be- ginning of the war. He rved in the First Division. Twent.vixth In. fantry, and was wounded during the second battle of the Marne at Sois- sons ,France, July 19, 1918. PZKE COUNTY CONNER CLUB. The campaign is fast coming to a close as the first primary will be held in about ten days from this date. The candidates are puttin forward their best efforts and will continue to 'do o up to the date of the pri. mary. From what we can learn the ubernatorial race has narrowed own between Conner dhd Whitfield, and with these two gentlemen in the second primary we will have nothing to fear, realizing as we do that etther will make an executive of which our state may have no occasion to apol- ogize. In the event that these two do get into the second inning, we have no doubt but what Conner will be the winner by an easy majority. H. M. IVY FOR BOND. To the Voters of Madison County: I know from my eight years ex- perience, two in charge of the school at Flora and slx at Canton, that the people of Madison county can be counted on to do the right thing. I know further that but few of us give the same careful consideration to the other state oicers that we do to the Governor. Hence I am writing to ask you to vote and use your influ- ence for the re-election oqtate Su- perintendent Bond. I have known Mr. Bond and his op- ponent for a number of years, but during the last three years, as State Supervisor of High Schools I have lind every opportunity to know more about the work and efficacy of each. Mr. Bond hould by all means be re- elected. His organizing ability, un- tiring energy and success in getting all forces to co-operate have been largely responsible for the rapid de- velopment in our schOols, particular- ly in our rural hools, and another term will be necmry to complete the program. The opposition to Mr. Bond has at, tempted to charge him with respon- sibility for the high price of school book but you will recall that a Com. mitres of the 1922 Legiature in- vestigated this matter thoroughly, and, while condemning the high cost of books, stated in clear cut terms that "the State Superintendent of Education is in no way respon- sible." We cannot all agree in religion, and we cannot all agree in politics, but we can nil get together for bette schools That man who attempts to inject factionaIism, ptty politics and actual misrepresentation into a campaign for the Superintendency of all the schools of the State, i, by t!;ose very acts,.unfitted for the peal. tmn to which he aspires. Will you not help us to continue to KEEP THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION OUT OF POLITICS by votingand using your infuence to re.elect Mr. Bond.? . I I have lived among you people and l know that' Mr. Bond is the high type of Christian gentleman and efficient I State official that you so much desire, and hope that,you will give him a I heavy majority. i soon have 1 Hoping thai we may every vestige of politics swept out i of onr State Educational institutional and that we may keep such out of I the Department of Education by your help, I am, Yours very truly, [ H.

"I believe he knew there were no mills within my urisdlctlon when he spoke." "Mr. Knox. after declaring that he had a farm from which he sold 62 de8 of cotton last year, pictured the condition of the farmees if the local 011 mills that were in the state shmfld be driven out and th mrmers forced to throw their seed away as in days gone by. He declared that the Amer- Ican Cotton 011 Company had sold its laet holdings in Mississippi and the Buckeye was leaving and only local companies were left and none of these were in hls district. Butch Gets What He Wanted. "Luther Burch has been wanting a Joint debate," continued Mr. Knox. '*This morning he has gotten Ills wish gratified. He has gotten out on s llmb and I am sawing it off."

Mr. Buch read a letter addresd to Governor 1 by Rush Knox n which the aggressive district at toruey requested a pardon for a ne- g sent to the pen for murder.

Mr. Knox then turne his atntloa to the long drawn out criminal trials. and said: "A few of thse criminal lawyers like Itrch are the ones who are bankrupting the counties with these long trials, which are expensive luxuries.

I say to you that as your next attorney general. I am going to try to conserve the legal expemse of the state just as I have been tryin to do for 13 years.- From the re-echoing applause of the crowd and the constant comment of those present, it is evident that Mr. Knox scored a victory over Burch similar to that over his other oi ponenL Clayton D.
