Babson, head of the great Babson Statistical Institute, of July 19, 1923, said: improvement in business Which followed the war, and is so eiearly shown by the Babson-chart, very largely the result of the in. prohibition and the sol- former waste of two dollars or more each year due liquor traffic. I know of no to account fo the great wetus in home bilding, the tre- endous number of new automobiles purchased, the larger volume of de- partment store sales, accompanied at he same time by a continued swell- ing of savings bank deposits, when :! The second, the presiding officer of *I the Senate, who is the lieutenant- * governor, does not have to be elected *!by the Senate, as does the speaker by the House of Representatives. Usually there is a large number of candidates for speaker of the ttouse eometimes resulting in a deadlock which together with the election o: other House officer have been known to procrastinate the organiza- tion until the next day after the meeting of the Legislature. In the meantime the lieutenat - governor may have announced his standing committees to which bills are refer- red and that body at once begins work When the House meets it is called to order by the secretary of state and immediately proceeds to the election of other officer. After the speaker is chosen from the ne- cessity of the case, it requires time to select the various committees and the chairmen thereof. The naming of committees by the presiding offi- cers of both Houses in the Mismssippi Legislature is a most important and responsible legislative function as the successful work of the Legislature depends upon good committee chair- men and good committees.--Hinds County Gazette. c AN ISSUE THAT'S CLOSED There aright as well be a definite understanding about the liquor ques- tion in the next presidential cam- paign. No candidate advocating a modifi- cation of the Volstead law will com- mand the support of a delegation from half a dozen states. Even the sincere radical forces of this country do not favor liquor. Liquor in all history has been one of the great obstacles to genuine progres& rhe wor enemy to the laboring man has been liquor, and men under the influence of liquor, in any walk of life, are more apt to become lawless than the same men sober. In the passing back and forth of responsibility politicians are merely jockeying for advantage. Bdth par- ties will declare against the modifi- cation of the Volstead law.

We had to suspect as much, but on and saw a citizen 6r in the same old.rut and still and we doubted really changed. Then ti, on the following jn an exchange  and we immediately changed our mind, we realized things .are different now from what the used to be. The editor of the paper to says: are the Iiappy days when we used to wear s Raty, ride a safetY, drive a hubber-tired buggy, a torch in a Bryan paraffe, ate fre lunch, smoked Ck, em6 cigars, danced the two-step, went to a Chinese mag- ic lantern show and BItck Crook r was a racy declaration. They cannot be gov- erned by party commands. "This etatement is an answer to a letter this paper received a few days ago asking what a Democrat hould do in the event the Democratic party turned wet. "Every man can do as he wishes in this country so tong as he does .not break the law. No man is bound in conscience to a political party. A man is bound in conscience by the law and the constitution, so long ws the law is in fine with the constitu- tion. ,We do not know what others might do but we would not support a wet Demodratic candidate on a wet plat- form, even if he were unanimously nominated by a national Democratic convention. "Prohibition as a political issue is behind us. The duty of Democrats and epublicaus alike is to aid in enforcg the law by obeying it them. selves."Commercial Appeal. There was a time when the ocrats of the South would any man that was nominated, but that time is past, and many who claim to be good Democrats are not going to support a whisky mast fcr'resi- dent, who is not absolutely in favor of enforcing the Volstead act and in the suppression of the liquor traffic in every shape and form, Such a state. merit as the above, coming from the Commel"cial Appeal is very signifi- vanf, and many will be glad to see this great paper take such a stand. Newton Record GOOD TIMES AHEAD. There is every prospect that the era of prosperity that has set in this country will not only continue, but enlarge in the course of the next five years. All over the country a build- ing program is developing that i nor only evidence of present prosperity, but a sure prophecy of its continu- ance. People do not build unless they have money with wldch to de- fray their building expenses, or have show. We didn% have much mazum immediate Frospects of securing it. to spend then, but we were the bugs' A big building program is a sure bustre wfth what we did have. And token of confidence in the future. had Another indication of present and farther continued prosperity is the projected will now.

It is said the tot.l ce't of these schools was $1,031.800. Negroes had contribut- ed $371,098, individual whites had given $107,743, the counties had ap- propriated $343,859, and the Rosen- wald fund had put up $209,100. A few more have been erected since last Jne, and it is e.xpected that in a few more years Miissippi will forge ahead of North Carolina in the matter of negro education." MOST WORK FOR LEAST MONEY Each and every local newspaper gives from $100 to $5,000 in free advertising for the benefit of the community in which it is located. No oher agency can or will do this. The lccM editor, in propoion to his means dcea more for his home town than az.,y other ten men, and in fair. nest. man to man, ought to be sup- pmed, not because you like him or admire hie wrkim, but because a locel paper is the best investment a community can make. It may not be brilliant or crowded with great thoughts, but financially it is of more benefit to a community than a teacher or a preacher. Understand us. now, we do not mean morally or intellectually, but financially, and yet on the moral question you will find that a majority of the local pa- pers are on the right side of the question. Today the editors of the local papers do most work for the least money of any people living. Grenada Sentinel.
