Other State Officials Will Be Sworn In the Day Prevlous---Legisla- ture Meets, Jan. 8th. Jackson, Miss, Dec. 11.- There still appears to be some confusion of ideas regarding the date when the new governor-elect and state officers will go into office. Gov. Whitfield will not be inaugurated until Tues- day, January. 22nd. Lieut-Gov. Mur- phree will not assume the gavel as presiding office of the Senate until Monday, January 21st, Lieut-Gov. Casteel presiding up to that time. All other state officers will also go into office on Monday, January 21st. The dates for the governor's inaug- uration and qualification, of state officers vary according to the meet- ing date of the Legislature. This year the Legislature meets on Janu ary 8th, the latest date upon which it can fall, it being fixed for Tues- day after the first Monday in Janu- ary. The Legislature is convening at noon sharp and the time of the first day is usually taken up in the election of a seaker and employees, etc. On the day following the elec- tion of the speaker, the secretary of state will deliver to him the sealed returns of the general election for state officers, and on the Tuesday following his receipt of the returns which will be January '15th, the speaker opens them, in the presence of the House of Representatives and they are canvassed and the results announied. Then on the Monday fol- lowing the annoucement of the re. sults, all state officers, except the governor, qualify and take the oath of office. The governor is to take the oath on Tuesday following, which will be January 22nd, in the presence of the two houses in joint session, ad- ministered to him by the chief jus. rice of the supreme eoqrt or one of the associate justices.-. The Legisla. ture will therefore be in se-:sion for two weeks before it will receive the message of the governor. 0 THE WORD "CHRISTMAS" Brevity may be the soul of wit but abbreviation If$n0t the soul of judges to be elected, one from high senti,-v, ent and sacredness that northern one from the' south attach to Christmas.
