Choosing ti\Goi)efh()r So far as we have been able to learn few voters of Bl.vthcville and Mississippi county have made up their minds which of the. ten candidates for the Democratic nomination for governor they will support with their' bid- lots at the primary next August 11. Keports from throughout the state indicate that the same situation exists generally. There has been no crystal-. Jzalion of senlimcnt. it hardly needs to bo said, that (he welfare and progress' 1 of Arkansas a'n'd its people are closely involved in the choice of a now governor. The chief executive, lluuugh his power to make appointincnls and through his inilu- fiicc with the legislature, is usually flic determining factor in majoi v stale affairs. Arkansas' cannot afford to 1 place power in the hands of a political spoilsman, an insincere ji'nd selfish demagogue, or n weak incompetent. Foitunatcly there is no'necessity of (ioing so. Among the ten candidates in the ciiiTent race for ..governor are a number of able aii'd honest men, capable of icndering good and effective service in the governor's office. The pioblem is one of centering support behind one of these men, preferably, of coinse, the beat of thcni;, 'll)e Conner News is not in a position at this time to point to any of the candidates as the one man behind wh6m the support^of friends of good government should-';be concentrated'. It is our belief, however, that Arthur J.,'Johnson, who will speak on' tho .courthouse lawn hern at 8 o'clock Wed-" nesday night, is onejwho merits consideration, because lie lives 'in a dis- stant pait of the state and because his public service has not been of the kind that inakes headlines, few residents of this county Itnow him either peisoiially or bv reputation. We believe, however, that he is one of the ci'iidulalca whom voters should hoar before deciding who is to receive their support on August n. Railroad Progress A number of years ago it became. eudent that if the railroads of America were to mcef siicce.sst'ully the grow- ii'g competition of motor bus, truck, private automobile and airplane they would have to strip for action. Unwieldy financial slructurcs licedcJ pruning, unpiofitable branch lines needed elm.-.iavion, out-of-date ccitiip- mft'ftt Me'ddil rcplKcdrn'cnl, rales I hat mackJ business tor compclitors needed reducing', arid salary ami payro/l «t- counts needed (rtm'itiin'g. A giVat de'Sl' has bean accomplished. Hales have been cul, schedules have been speeded up, and Hie gentle pressure of Uio R. P. 0. lias resulted in .some reductions in financing and administrative expense. In conj unction will) (ho jfciieriij business pick-up these changes Iwve resulted in a very siilwtuntliil gain in ritilroa'd revenues. Hut the job lias not been finished and Kli'-'iiitjrely enough most of Hie opposition to the completion of it is within tlie railroad industry itself. The railroad hankers don't wa'nl to sec any reorganization of railroad limtnccs that would dtprivc them of their profits. The railroad executives don't wjint to see I heir jobs wiped out of (heir salaries cut. And the powerful railroad labor unions oppo'se the elimination of unpVofifable fines and cltipli- cnling facilities and any other slepx toward •'.•greater ell'icicncy that would result in reducing (he ri'timliof of jobs available for their members. Such opposition is .short .sighted. It cannot halt progress. Rut to live extent that it delays it (he obstruction--. isl.s tliontseh'e.s, together witir the .shipping a'n'd trn'vciiiifV public' art'd tin: investors ,who liav'e money in railr6a'd .securities/Will Sud'cr. F6r what'civcr else their dillcrcnccs may be, capital, management aiid labor have a common interest, in the 'prosperity of t'hn industry. All of them should accept such immediate sacrifices as rnd'y be necessary to' a'ssiii'e' its future ' welfare. Noii-Po'lilical. Accounting John- R. JMcCarl, retiring afler IB- years' service as ebhi'plrol'lef ge'neral of the United States, leaves this mighty pertinent observation, to-wit: bookkeeping: .and politics never were meant''iff mix under the American form of government. • • That, is to say, Mr. MeCarl explains,, "fhiit a : n ..a'ccoun'tiiVg office absolutely and 1 iiUeriy free of politic'? is cKsenlial" ifi ' Washington—for alT adminislratiomi, as a'permanent se$.' up of our government. At the same time, the retiring comp- Irbllci- general urgta wholesale reof- ganixation of government to efl'cct a "vast monetary saving," and to assure better a'dmiiiisiration. Wo hope flic Byrtl senate commit- , tec will returni strong' recommendations along the line of these suggestions aiici tliaC the iiexC congress -will carry flitni old. The whole problem of government reorganization has been dodged and by-passed quite' enough. An ordinary 'beating might, have helped Ijjiils, but not that awM one lie took. Jeez.

He was from over near Tin Cup way, Claire." A reminiscent light gleamed in Susie's eyes. "It happened clurin' the mining boom, while your Uncle Lyman was here, and i was kecpin' house for him. A likely youngster—the while miner." "What happened to him?" Pat asked. "Oh, h6 took up with a fellow who come from out California ways. They went, up to the kid's claim and worked it all. summer.

If the arnnv mark really pointed to'Ihe stairway to Ihe lookout, any. further signs on the weather-beaten walls had been erased by the elements. "It (mints toward the stairs all right," said Pat. "Nothing else on dial side of the room but that case for books." He walked .icioss and examined the volumes on the shelves. "Anylhing on jewels?" a iked Bob. " ' ; '.
