Rev. W. A. White, member of the Legislature from Prentiss County, was tried at Jackson Monday for carrying a pistol and drawing it in a threatening manner on a woman of the underworld. Although he was not convicted, evidence was introduced to show that he was a constant visitor to the house of ill fame and that on April 13th he did threaten an inmate of one of these places with a pistol. This man White is the same “honorable gentleman” who was accused by B. W. Wade, editor of the Jackson Star, of trying to bribe Representative Adams, a Vardaman supporter. The bottom is going to drop out yet.—Star-Ledger.
It ought not to be so, but politics don’t seem to help a preacher very much any way.
