A Disappointing Convention.
There is surely some cause for
grief in the following, taken
from Our Home:
Recently an "old-time fiddlers'
meeting was advertised at V m-
ston and it was announced that no
violinists would be permitted to
take part nobody except fiddlers.
After a report of the meeting
.1 Ml W 1
came out tne otatesvnie land
mark was moved to make these
remarks: While the affair was
advertised as an ' old-time fiddlers'
meet" and positive assurance was
given that violins and violinists,
etude ops. and the like were to be
strictly barred, The Landmak has
a suspicion that it was not a strict
ly old-time affair. The only old
time tunes mentioned in the pro
gramme were "Mississippi Saw
yer" and "Arkansaw Traveler."
Nowhere was there any mention
of "Old-Jimmy Suttentah,;' "Su
gar in the Gourd," "Billy in Low
Ground" or "Old Molly Hair."
Instead they had "Twinkle. Little
Star," "Sweet Sunny South," etc.
These may be a little ancient but
they are not the genuine old
And the Landmark is exactly
right in its criticism. Without
"OJd Jimmy Suttenah," "Old
Molly Hair," "Leather Britches,"
etc. No gathering can properly
be called an old-time tiddlers' con
vention." It looks to us like an
underhanded scheme of the violin
ists to capture the fiddlers' conven
tions, when such tunes as we
mention are left off, and the next
time a fiddlers' convention is pul
led off anywhere in the State we
warn the good old-time fiddlers to
be on the watch-out and not al
low the violinists to capture it.
We hope that Mr. Rube Lem
mond will see to it that the Mon
roe fiddlers' convention is proper
ly guarded and protected from
intrusion by violinists. We don't
want a violinist to even sit as a

Decision Against The State As To
$30,000 Fine Of Southern
The Supreme Court in a deci
sion filed Wednesday arrests the
judgments of Judge Long as to
the $30,000 fine of the Southern
Railway for violating the 2i cent
passenger rate law. The right of
the court to fine or imprison any
railroad official for selling at a
higher rate is denied and it is
held that the Federal courts can
not interfere in criminal prosecu
tions and that in civil suits the
railroad may be mulcted of $500
for each sale. Chief Justice
Clark dissents and says the rail
roads should be fined and intimates
that an extra session of the Legis
lature should be held to make the
act more explicit.
