Jn.ljmJ. W. Watren, by invitation,
addressed the House this afternoon in
advocacy cf the bill fixing his fee in
the Riilrotd Commission cases.
The bill passed the House allowing
insurance companies not licensed by
the State to transact business without
making deposit or paying privilege
tax, but by paying 4 per oent. of 'gross
receipts. This bill, should it become
a law, will operate unjustly ia those
companies that have paid the privi
lege tax and made deposits, and will
not benefit the citizens of the' State at
large, i It will make the procuranc of
insurance on gin-houses and cotton
risks more difficult.

Jacisoh, Miss , March 1. Another
week has passed and the Mississippi
Legislators is beginning 'to get down
to Its work, little important legislation
caving been computed. It will do
better now. There is no other place
to which an "excursion" can be run.
Seats in the Mississippi Legislature
will be at a premium, now, since free
ridei and Junketing seems to be the
order ol the day. It is a part of the
franchise of the seat.' But travel lib-
etalisss the mind, enlarges the ideas,
expands the understanding, and who
will not say that the Mississippi Legis
lature does not need such tuition T
The House is ''iollv" set of lei
lows mottlr, though there are some
able men of reflective character and
habits among them. Some of them
are "demnitiori smart" fellows. The
Seastslsmore dignified and orderly
in its sense cf legislative duties and
responsibilities. The House has
more ''quidnuncs" than the Senate
indeed, the latter has none at all, fr
in session, and . no ripple upon the
sur face, it looks as wise as an owl
with a dose of laudanum. It is
mott'y componed of able men and few
demaioines. In the House the dema
gogue is in his glory and finds much
sympaihy and the "jay bird" of
liberty is unmercifully ridden.
One of the most notable events of
the week was the sudden blazing
across me literary firmament of
genius which had hitherto been
"blushing unseen" among the hills of
Ponto'oc county. He was by solemn
reeolution of the House recognisid
and crowned as poet laureate of the
House, who baa acquired more fame
with less effort and lees genius than
any preceding poet. "Poet nasc.tur
The week baa been crowded with
the consideration of measures of great
importance to the people of the State,
and in many instances the legislator
. wrestling with more profound mat
ters than he can lathom. Statesmen
are as touch needed in Sta'e as in n
tional legislation, but they are not
found every time. The lozal option
. law for counties has been up for con
Hftaration. ' and. with some a-nend'
manu. has Dasjed the House. It was
nhlw argued; pro and con.

Tbe ground for the ditfarenre of
- opinion lav in the cotton tax c'.sme.
Tbe opposition to the tax was led by
Sena or Uwen, irom 1 linn a cuumr,
nd lis oa by a majority of one,
though the matter was referred sgain
to tbe Levee Committee. The cotton
tax supporters were ably led by Sen
ior. Yerger, 8ykes, Dillard, Powell,
Houston and others. Tbe cotton tax
is supported by the msjority of the
property owners of the delta, and it is
opposed by the negroes unanimously,
but it is the only basis of credit, and is
the only salvation of the delta. There
would to-day be no levees rebuilt in
tbe delta nnlese based on a cottoa Ux
The Gulf and Ship Island railroad
bill has been a bard nut for tbe legis
lators to crack. It seeks to transfer
tbe State convicts to the said com
pany for a term of years for $75,000
of the company's roods. 1 here has
been much discuenion of the matter,
but it passed the House by a consider
able msjority, and it is hoped will
Cass tbe Senate. Tbe convicts should
e placed upon the public works in
the State, both railrod and levees.
The proposed railroad a ill develop a
large section of the State now unlra
versed by railrc ads, create and increase
taxable values, and add much to the
material advantige of the State. Col.
Faulkner, who controls tbe Ripley
narrow-gsuge road, in the northern
part of tbe Stat, his put uis road in
the pool, and that insures success.
A vigorous effort was made by Mc
Gruder, member f-om Vickshnrg, to
abolish tbe State Railrojd Commis
sion, in an able speech, but the House
would net follow him. He denounced
ths theory of the commission as a
despotic espionage upon the rights of
Individuals and corporations. The
Railroad Commission is safe far an
other term at leait. Another matter j
of public concern before the House
the past week wai the report of the
special committee upon a charge of
forgery against W. L. Lowe, negro,
and one of the members from Bolivar
county. The reeolution of expulsion,
npon the report of the committee find
ing the charge proven, wai voted
down, and the House has thus set up
standard of public morality it will
be bard to explain or justify.
Another niatr of much interest in
e early part of last week was the
contested election case of Robert 1.
Duncan vs. W. L. Lowe, from Bolivar
county. The conteitint contenuea
that the vio'a'.ion of the election lawe,
as shown over the entire country by
the Republican fusion ticket, mani
fested a fraudulent intent, which over
came the prima facie presumption in
favor of tbe certificate ana enutea tue
burden of proof upon tbe contestee to
show bis vote. H. C. McUabe, mem
ber from Warren county, ablv opposed
for the conteitse that such irregulari
ties would not vit'n'e an election and
there was no fraud. The contestant
was permitted, by the courtesy ol tbe
House, to present bis own case, and it
was grand effort. For several hours
during part of the morningand night
sessions of Tuesday in aa argument
of unsurpaued power and eloquence,
the contettmt commanded the uni
versal attention of the House,. It was
pronounced a maeieriy euon, one ui
the beat ever made in the hall of the
House of Ilepiesentatives, and the
warm congratulations extended at
tested the appreciation of bis audience.
But even such aa argument on the law
and the facts could not induce a ma
jority of tbe House t ) peep behind the
returns, tnouga in ttiis instance me
Democratic ox was being "gored." It
would be setting a bad precedent!
Bahl Who can say now that the Mis
sissippi House of Representatives is
not for the "nigger?" A fifteenth
amendment for the white man is now
in order in tbe State of Mississippi,
and in the House, at least, he is ai
good as a "negro' if the white man
There are too many candidates lor
Congress In the House.
The latter part oi tbe week wsa par
ticularly lively on the outside of tbe
capltol. It seems that Maj. Frank
Burkett ol unicxasaw county, mem
ber of the House, bad raid in bis
Darter, the Chickaiaw Aleumaer. that if
certain f ids brought eut by tbe Sen
ate Committee on the Penitentiary af
fected an opposition Governor he
would be Impt ached, and that tbe
present House had not tbe moral
courage to impeach Gov. Lowry. On
Ratnrdav. aa Burkett was leaving the
House, Pat Lowry, (on of and private
secretary to the Governor, denounced
liurkett as a liar, etc., wnereupon oe
was violently assaulted by BurktU,
when they were separated. In the
fternoon Robert Lowry, Jr., posted
Burkett as a liar and coward, eta,
and informed blm that be was "ready,
willing and awaiting" to defend bis
poster. The young men were bound
over to keep tbe peace, ana so me
matter ended, and it is hoped will
stay ended. Gov. Lowry heretofore
has borne a tine cnaracter, ana me
proof will have to be strong of any
corruption on his part to command
belief. It is commendable, of course,
for bis sons to wish to resent an in
suit offered their father, but he is a
rmblic character, and ol course is
subject to criticism. More annn.

A supplemental report lrom the tec-

to navigation in Tennessee livers
caused by bridges, says :
"An accident at the uiarxsvuia
biidge, on the Cumberland river, has
moved the pilo's and others interested
in the navigation of that liver to de
mand that the space between the
draw-piers be filled in by a solid wall,
so that boats may rub sgainBt it with
out damage, and that a pole thirty to
filtv feet high, bearing a red nog oy
day and a red lantern by night, so
that pilots may see at a reasonable dis
tance whether the draw is open, be
erected upon the draw spaa. This re
quest seems reasonable, and as the
cost to tne company wouia uut ue
very grf ar, I would respectfully recom

that cribs of timbers filled with stone

The Committee on Commeice bave
recommended the passsga of tbe
measure giving tbe assent of Congress
to tbe construction of a bridge by the
Nashvl le, Jackson and Memphis Rail
road Company over the Tennessee
rivor. at point in the counties of
Perry and Decatur where it is most
practicable. The committee cnangea
the measure as originally prepared by
Mr. Tay'or. At first it was intended
to authorise a bridge with spans of
164 feet length and 34 feet above ex
treme high water mark, but the com
mittee, in view cf the possibilities cf
future commerce, were unwilling to
prescribe these limits, or to definitely
fix them, so tbey provide tnat the
spans "shall be of such width and
hight above the water ai may be
prescribed by the Secretary of War,"
thus leaving the determination cf this
important matter with the army engi
neers In charge of the river improve
ment. The wonderful rapidity with which
official "bureaus" grow infjexpense to
the government bai received its
latest exemplification in the case of
the Bureau ot Labor, cow little more
than a year old. The amount asked
for the payment of salaries during the
next fiscal year is $52,980, which pre
sents startling contract to the
amount allowed for tbe coming fiscal
year $5000. Then, too, there is asked
fr contingent expenses $39,850. For
the present year there was allowed for
"contingencies" $3 j 000, but, it should
be explained, out ot this came the f al
ary account and expenses of special
agents, which it is now desired to spe
cifically appropriate, as indicated
above. The result, as ran be seen
from these figures, is that tne expense
of "bureau" which commenced at
$40,000 per annum hee .grown in
twelvemonth to $92,830 This is in
structive, if we think for a moment
of other "bureaus," the f isb commis

cost of $20,000 a vear and now reaches
well up in the hundred- ot thousands.

bids fair to exceed its predecessors,
