Nashville, Tknn., April 13. Gov.
Bate has not received official notifica
tion of thy resignation of Senator
Jackson, but it is certain that he will
accept the judgeship offered him. The
Governor is receiving numerous tele
grams regarding the appointment of
Jackson's successor, from all parts of
the State, urging the claims of
a score of men. Gov. Bate
maintains strict silence as to his
intentions. It is certain that he
has not decided, even in his own
mind, as to whom he will appoint.
The Hon. S. T. Wilson came down
from Gallatin this morning and had
an interview with Gov. Bate, but
Wilson save he is not a candidate.
The impression grows here that he
will be appointed, but the knowing
ones say not. His friends are making
a warm fight for him.
a. s. mc nkai. ok hoi.ivar
is gaining ground in public opinion as
the coming lucky man. His con
servatism and popularity with the
leaders, and the warm relations be
tween him and Bate, are urged in bis
favor. Williamson county is making
a pull for Speaker Berry, but he is
virtually out of the race. Ex-Gov.
Marks is enjoying a quiet boom,
but is personally making no effort
to secure the rppointmeut. Ex-Congressman
Whitthorne is also regarded
as a strong man. Gen. Dibrell is get
ting a boom from the upper counties,
but he is not a candidate in any sense
of the word. He warts to be Gov
ernor, and would not be content to
trade his chances of the nomination
for less than a year's service in the
Senate, and that by appointment.
cot, JOSIAU pattbiison
and Col. liobert Looney of Memphis
are among those favorably spoken of.
Col. Tom McOonnel! of Chattanooga
is also being nrged. Gov. Bate has
held consultations with leading Dem
ocrats, but to no one has hi given any
pledgesol favor to any aspirant. There
is considerable comment here over the
charge brought by the Ammom this
morning, that Senator Jackson acted
with duplicity toward Mr. Estos of
Memphis and Thomas alone of tins
city in regard to the judgeship'
pledging himself to both and then
accepting the ollice himself. Not a
word has been heard from the Sena
ator. JACKS0 V, MISS.

Jackson, Miss., April 13 There
was a meeting held here to-day of the
Executive Committee of the Missis
sippi Press Association, composed of
('apt. J. W. Lambert of the Natchez
Democrat, president :Capt. 8. B. Brown
of the Water Valley Progrm, first
vice-president; T. M. Henry of the
Stale llqr, second vice president ;
and G. V. Rogers of the Vicksburg
Commmkil-llemUl, secretary of the
Press . Association. The committee
changed the time of the next annual
meeting of the Press Association
from the 12th to the liith of May next.
This change was made in view of the
fact that the Interstate competitive
military drill w in commence at Vicks
burg May 11th, and for the further
reason that the time originally fixed
conflicts with the meeting of the
Grand Lodge of the Knights of Pyth
ias. The committee selected Miss
Delia Applcgate of the Winona Ad
vance and Miss Eva Frantz of the
Brandon Republican to deliver original
poems at the annual meeting. E. H.
Deal of the Meridian Nem was se
lected to respond to the address of
welcome by A. F. Fox, on the as
sembling of tho association at West
Point, and J H. Martin of the New
MUKimppian to respond to the wel
come address proper by Miss Maud
Exum of West Point. The citirams of
West Point are making preparations
to entertain the press in fine style.

' through to Montgomery last night for '
the first time since the Hood. The
i only trouble now is in Tensas swamp
on the Mobi e and Montgomery divis- j
; Trainmen on a Umisville and Nash
ville freight train that came in from I
the South early this morning reported '
I a dead negro about half a mile below !
town, King beside the lni"k ami part- i
, ly in a branch. Investigation by the !
i or.ine-asceriaineii mat (lie man was
Jack Mains, a section hand. The top
and one side of his bead and lower
jaw were crushed to a jellv, and then'
were other tlesh wounds from a pistol
ball that pierced his hat brim, but
glanced w hen it hit his head. Ap
pearances were that he was lieaten to
death alter he was shot. Then1 is
positively no cle- as lo the murderer,
or cause of killing. The man was not
known to have an enemy Tie was
accidentally hit on the head with a
pick while at work on the road a few
days ago, and had been lying off since.
'I Iismhus make men wise, poets
witty." But what in the world docs n
man want with either when lie has
sprained his ankle? No sir, not these,
not th se! Give him but one bottle of
Salvation ( il. The greatest cure on
art h for pain.
