Mr. Ratcliff is generally recognized as one of the most prom- inent lawyers in this state, and be- sides this he is one of its most force- ful and pleasing orators, and withal] genewlly popular with a large circle of friends, so we predict that if he does get into the race he will make it a most lively and interesting one.

Some of tbe state papers are printing reams of tommyrot urging the repeal of the absent voter law. It is possibly true that in some counties the absent voter law wa abused or violated during the sum- mer primarie But this does not furnish either reaon or an excuse for its repeal. For that matter, all our laws are vioIated, but that would not justify the burning of the statute books. . The absent voter taw is a men- Serious measure, and the newspapers clamoring for its repeal could ren- der far better service by insisting that its provisions not be violated. Incidently, you will notice that most of the clamor for the reeaI of this law comes from the Vardaman- Russell-Bilbo crowd, and this alone is sufficient justification for its re- tention on the statute books.---Jac- son Daily New@. The absent voter law. as we un- derstand it, was enacted during the war to permit the men who were away servinr the flag to particiuate in the elections.
