Gov. Joints, of Arkansas, has
suddenly bloomed out into an en-
thusiastic expansionist, to his
discredit be it said.

The match trust has notified

The Milwaukee Germania, a
Republican journal, asserts that
prominent, influential and highly
respeoted republicans, who are
worthy of the utmost confidence,
are wbrking against McKinley's
renomination, and adds that the
time will come when they will
openly and freely declare them-
selves. The president's advocacy
of imperialism "knocked the bot-
tom out of the barrel," so to
speak, with these people. The
president will soon discover what
a great, serious blunder he has
made; that the people who hur-
rahed at his imperialistic policy
and his ravings about the flag
constituted only a part of the na-
tion, and that the others remain-
ed quiet out of respect for the
dignity of his office, although
their views differed from those of
the president. A politician
Mr. MoKinley's caliber Ought i
to have lost his head on aocount
of the expansion noise.
Republicans who do not favor
a second term for President Mo-
Kinley because they are opposed
to his foreign policy, now recol-
lect other grounds of dissatisfac-
tion with him, the greatest among
which is the all-powerful in-
fluence of Hanna, and the way
in which he has used it. The
favoritism in the army and navy,
and especially the infamous treat-
ment accorded Admiral Schley,
as well as the whitewashing of
the army contracts, are much
commented upon, and people say

A close investigation into the
question of federal taxation will
reveal the fact that nearly all the

WHAT ABOUT IT.
About 33 per cent of the popu-
lation of Smith county are color-
ed people. About 90 per cent of
the oourt expenses of our county
is traceable directly to the negro.
Our mayor's oourt, justice courts,
county court and distriot court is
largely ocoupied in the trial of
negroes for violating the laws of
our state, county or city.. In ad-
dition to this, in making a roomy
jail and in a convict farm our
oounty has a oonstant investment
of forty or fifty thousand dollars.
The labor lost by individuals at-
tending these courts will foot up
at least one hundred thous-
and dollars a year. In
