Batixvillf, Mi88., April 15. One of
the most interesting stories I have
heard for some time was the one told
me to day by old residents of Panola
county regarding the rise, progress
and decay of their former county seat.
I venture to reproduce it because
many of your readers remember it
with affection as their childhood's
happy homo. Not a few of yonr solid
merchants will doubtless recall with
interest the dys when their ledgers
(or perhaps, their fathers') bore the
names of the planters and merchants
of Panola, and I doubt not there are
hundreds living within the charmed
circle of your circulating radius who
will be carried back ("away back yan
der," as we say down here) to the hal
cyon days when the Chickasaw roamed
hese hills and dales, when cotton was
king, and corn juice only 18 cents a
The good old days I speak of for
Panola county commenced just
half a century ago. The county
was organized in the year of
our Lord, 1836, and thereupon
a very lively contest ensued between
the rivul towns of Belmont and Pa
nola as to which should be the county
seat. The Tallahatchie runs a vt-ry
sinuous course diagonally across the
country from the northeast to the
southwest corner, and in the south
ern part the two towns Belmont on
the north and Panolu on the south
side were about eoual in size and
each anxious for predominance. The
8heriir, George Anderson, was a Pa
nola man, and in the election held in
1S38 swore the judges and clerks of
election to do the best they could
for that town And they did. Bel
mont had the first innings, and d d
nobly. Her vote proved to be larger
than the ent re population of tho
county, including women and chil
dren, Indians and negroes! Panola
was' equal tt the occasion, scored a
vote fully 25 per cent, larger than
that of Belmont and, of course, won
the victory. Then the town grew
apace. Handsome residences were
erected, hotels were built, and, in due
courso of time, a fine court-house,
jail and sheriff's house arose to grace
the park-like public square. It was a
capital location for a town, situated on
laud level as a billiard table, bounded
by hilly, rolling land on one side
and the thickly-wooded valley of
the Tallahatchie on the other,
surrounded by a country as fertile as
any in the world - it could not well be
bettered. In those days planting was
profitable, I mean cotton planting, and
money was plentiful and living i heap.
Haiti a merchant hero, "My father
kept a keg instead of a cash-drawer,
and just threw gold and silver into it
until it was full, then turned it all out
and counted it." The first hotels iu
Panola were only leu shanties and the
fare was as rudo as the architecture.
A man named Heme kept the first
"stopping place," and at a time when
the forest primeval was ahead of the
plantation. His guests were some
times traders (the t rm drummer had
not then been invented', planters and
travelers. Robcrson, John V. Ragan,
A. G. Ellis (whose son is to-day pro
prietor of the celebrated Bailey's
springs nosorij, LOva and reter Jones
were successively hotel-keepers and
.i..; l .1 - i.i ,
ineir pmces gruw wmi uie growin oi
the town until substantial brick struc
tures of two stories supplanted the log
Communication with the outside
world wasi had by two means. The
Tallahatchie, then as easily navigated
as the Mississippi itself, was the high
way for large steamboats' to New
Orleans "and intermediate points,"
and "the dirt road" led to Memphis,
which was not much of a city fifty
years ago, indeed there were not a
lew sagacious souls who believed that
in time Panola would be a powerful
rival to "Second Chickasaw Bluflk"
Among other boats w hich came to the
town tor cotton were the "John II.
Bills," "Exchange," "John Adams,"
"Amazon" and the "Panola Belle,"
and their masters were Capt. Leathers,
(I could not find whichof the brothers
it was), Capt. Wylie, Dobbins and
Hunt. During the season it was not
uncommon to see lour or five large
boats at the levee at one time, and the
largest carso was 1R00 balesagood
enough loading for such a stieam.
Within five years after it became
the county seat, Panola assumed the
appeurance of a city. Rows of stores.
othces and residences formed squares
arouna we central "plaza of the
court-house, and a population of
probab y from 1000 to 1200 souls dwelt
witmn tne city limits. Borne of the

wards of the firm of Doane, Estes &
Co. of Momphis; he lost an arm in his
country's service years after the time
of these chronicles. J. C. Armstrong,
before mentioned, who settled iu
Panola in 183, kept store for .two
years, and then being elected Chan
cery Clerk teld that position for ten
years, when he retired. He was pre
ceded in office by G. G Nelson, and
succeeded by W. P. Wootten. During
the municipal life of Panola the e
were five incumbents of the circuit
clerkship: David Boyd, Wm. C. Cul
berson, Wm. Keith, J. L. Fletcher
and J. U. Harrison. There were
two jidge (probate) Jud,-e J. T. M.
Burbndge and Judge Orville Harri
son; two Deputy Sheriffs, George An
derson and W. W. fcmith, and the fol
lowing (among many other) lawyers:
Calvin Miller, Foote & Ward, N. C
Taylor, Crensliaw, afterward noted in
New Orleans, and Tom Turner. M. 6.
Wrd, afterward known to his con
freres as "Manuscript" Ward, was the
editor of the Panola Lynx, the local
thunderer of those precocious times.
The County Treasurers were Jarues
Keith, John H. Keith. George Shu
ford and D. J. Goffe. Of course the
old town had its spiritual pastors and
Jiiasters. Among them were the i
Reva. Towney Goode, Methodist; Billy
Burney, Presbyterian; Father I-ane,
Baptist, and the Rev. G. Harris, Epis
copalian. The healing profession was
foil wed by Dr. Uol oway, Dr. Wrenn, ;
Dr. W. Willuims Dr Wnite, Dr. M.
N. Thillips, IV. S. P. LesUr. now of
Batesviile, and Dr. Curtis, who was
killed by nun named Wright in a
quarrel regaruag the purchase of
cotton. The homkide escaped to
TV i as. Nor were mttn8 of education
neglected, and the teachers were per

from Virginia, tin 1 Mrs. Presrott.now,
I think, of Mot phis, and not un

So much for mn. During the
quarter of a cent' ry iu which Panola
flourished there .ere many startling
incidents. Men ived high and their
passions were cos 'y armsed. In 1M0
tailor named F ager killed Ledbet
ter, who then edit id the Lynx.
Whisky was a fruitful tause of trouble
in those days. A man named Wood
ruff, who kept a saloon, the only one
in the town aid for which he paid
1000 license, was killed by a Mr.
Templeton. (la those halcyon days
no one was hailed for mur.icr.) A
still more celebrated case was that of
Nellands, who deliberately shot Price,
who was a grocery-keeper. The vic
tim wai a Freemason, and the order
made so strong ui effort to secure the
conviction and punishment of the
murderer that Ms defense cost him
$10,000. He wa killed about a year
afterward by a Ur. Dyson, who was a
famous fire-eatir and desperado of
those days, and who was ultimately
slain by his own son-in-law.
It is pleasant to turn from those
sanguinary incidints to the lighter
ones of Panolian ist ry. The Chick
asaw Indians wl abounded in the
vicinity were a fue race of people and
were held in high esteem by
the whites. Their dune s and
festivals were well attended by
the planters anl merchants who
brought tho "fire Jrater" which enliv
ened the proceediigs, while the young
squaws served "Tmufulla," a kind of
hominy sweeten-d with "Happy
champool." Tim Chickasaw nomen

as Panola, mean ng co'ton. Yocony

tributaries of tl Tallahatchie and

Dances were fr juently given by the
young men and t io girls were so fond
of attending tin- , when their strict
parents locked i the young ladies'
shoes, they were lot unwilling to go
in their st"ocir(; eet.
During the pre alence of the high
license law the price f drinks ad
vanced from 5 cc ts to 25 cents. Cot
ton was worth 12; cents a pound, and
one of the pioneer guzzlers was in the
habit of ssy, at he swal'owed his
drink, "Here got'- two pounds of cot
ton." Two whi ky cronies named
Tipton and Webs er, generally came
to town once a wi ik on pleasure bent,
and, after dri king ' until they
were both intoxcated, would con
clude the evening's entertainment
with a fight. On one occasion Tipton
arrived in town, mid before he had
time to take a ait Ae drink found his
opponent engage! in a fight with a
stranger. Dismi inting from his
horse, he turned in and whipped the
latter, remarking "I can't allow anv
one to whip Wi'ister but myself1'
Tipton married a half-breed Chicka
saw, and when hi.' son grew up he
was accustomed to introducing him as
"My son, sir, but - omes of poor stock
on the mother's ai o."
In high licenso t tries the bar-keepers
on the steambo ts did a thriving
business with chea;j drinks. The ar
rival of a boat was the signal for a
jollification, and all the male popu
lation would turn out "to inspect the
bill of lading."
From 1x40 to 1857 the town was at
its best. The Indian gradually disap
peared and tho planters grew richer
and their plantations lurger until fie
building of the M ssissippi anil Ten
nessee railroad. Then there
came a change over the for
tunes of Panola. When it was
found that the road would not go to
Panola, the latter determined to go to
the road, and thus it gradually did, mak
ing Batesviile the objective point. It
was not, however, until the second
year of the war that the town actually
ceased to be a town. Gen, Hatch at
the head of a party of Fede al cavalry,
raided the town, fired the court
house and jail, and also burned a
number of mill s stores and residences,
It was the last blow. Those brave
boys of the Panola Vindicators who
returned from Appomattox, found
only the ghost of a town. To-day tho
negro drives the plow over the sites of
suuares and streets, and onlv the

THE FL'SJIVE JOXES.
Why Florida Love Mirk Heaalor
l.lu(rn al Detroit.
Chicago, III., April 10. A local pa
per this morning publishes an inter
view with Mr. James McCarthy of
Jacksonville, Fla , who arrived yester
day from Detroit, where, it is asserted,
he had been sent by sev-ral of Senator
Jones s personal friends, as well as
the press of that section, to investi
gate the reasons for the Senator's
strange actions and to ascertain the
cause of his prolonged absence from
his post of duty at Washington. Mr.
McCarthy says that Senator Jones
originally went to Detroit for his
health, and adds: "I found that one
reason for his remaining there was
because he was largely interested in a
new manufacturing enterprise now
be ng gotten up, in which several
millions of dollars are being invested."
Regarding the story of the Senator's
connection with Miss PalmSj Mr Mc
Carthy says the reports of his falling
in love with the lady and persecuting
her are false. His acquaintance was
merely passing. Mr. McCarthy fur
ther said: "The Senator will avoid
answering directly or indirectly any
question p'it to him by friends or any
body leading on the subject of his
being in any way connected with Miss
Palms. When I asted him to explain
his prolonged stay, he said : I came to
Detroit in the first place to seek roiu
perfction and.rest.and my stay has been
prolonged beyond my expectatiois,
or, I might add, personal inclination,
but tbe local press, subsequently auj
merited by the papers of my o n Stale
and others, have taken it upon them
selves to publish certain stories relat

don't propose to be placed in a ridicu
lous position before my friends in
Detroit and elsewhere br their dicta

Other Senators have absented them
selves for a greater period of time of
which there has been scarcely men

should be made such a conspicuous
exception. My health has about re

THE ARST APPROPRIATION BILL
LI IZ V TJ CiLA
A Lively Plscnuslon In the House
Cliaplaiu dlilbum'a Prajers
-The Labor Vote.
leotiisroiiDiKCi or tbi ifpial.I
Washington, April 14. There is a
prospect of as lively a discussion in
the 1 louse over the question of reor
ganizing the army as has just been
terminated in the Senate. The army
appropriation bill, recently reported
by tho House Committee on Military
Affairs, proposes sweeping changes in
the army. It pioposes to reduce the
number of companies from 150 to 100,
while leaving the number of troops
25,000, as at present. It also provides
for introducing the three battalion
system, not only in the infantry as
propo el by Senator Manderson's bill,
but also in the cavalrv, artillery and
engineer branches. This change is
deemed necessary on account of the
change in the character of firearms.
The use of the Winchester breech
loading and repeating ritles requires a
revolution in the methods of man
euvering and disp sing of troops. 1 he
old plan of forming lines of tliree, or
even two, ranks would result in this
day of improved firearms in a massa
cre of the troops thus drawn up. In
fact the whole body of troops must
now be maneuvered almost exactly
like a skirmish.
The House Military CommHtce
think there is no need at present to
increase tho number of troops in the
regular army. 'It would be a bad
plan, in my opinion," said Gen
Cutcheon, a 'member of the commit
tee, recently, "to increase tho army
just now on the ground that labor
troubles make necessary a stronger
military force. It might he construed
as an admission of weakness and dan
ger, which, 1 th nk, do not exist.
Our present military force is large
enough, if it is properly organized
and handled. If we are going to in
crease our force we should do it in
time of tranquillity, if possible, rather
than when it may cause irritation."
of the House doesn't make any more
sensational prayers, and his morning
petitions are no longer printed in the
JUcord. For a few days after the ven
erablo Chaplain began the practice of
referring pointedly to current events
in his invocations the galleries were
crowded, everybody being desirous of
hearing what new topic the Chaplain
would discuss. But when he turned
to the consideration of wine-drinking,
horse-racing, stock-gambling and
other amusements in which Con
gressmen have been known at
times to indulge the members
concluded that his remarks were get
ting altogether too personal. Finally
Representative James of Brooklyn, N.
Y., injected to printing the petit on
offered by tho dominie on a certain
occasion on the ground that it was "in
cendiary." Very soon afterwards
Col. Morris-n, who evidently does not
believe in free trade in prayers, wrote
a little note to the Chaplain, advising
moderation. Moreover, the Chapln n
received hints from various quarters
that unless ho dealt more gently with
errors of his listeners he would defeat
his re-election to the Chaplaincy, if
not cause his expulsion. The Chap
lain gave heed to his advisers, and the
galleries are no longer tilled to hear
TUB LABOR AKIIITUATION BILL.
The House heaved a sigh of relief
and satisfaction when a vote on tho
labor arbitration hill was finally
reached, and the bill passed by an
overwhelming majority of 195 to 'M.
The knowledge that there was a prin
ciple at stae has lent to the debate of
the last few davs on this bill a degree
of interest on the part of members tunt
has not been reached before during the
present session. There were, indeed,
demagosical speeches and buncombe
votes, but thoro were likewise many
members who felt a keen anxiety for
the result of the discussion. The
feeling of thoughtful men is that if
this bill becomes a law, Congress will
have taken a step from which there
can be no turning back, and which
must lead to a greatmany other steps,
the ultimate end of which cannot be
foretold. The present measure is re
garded as merely an experiment, to
be followed up by other legislation
very soon. Its chief importance lies
in the fact that it puts the seal of
Congress on arbitration as the natoinal
means of sett ing disputes between
wage earne'S and wage payors. Who
will say that action of the House of
Representatives of the United States
does not mark the beginning of a new
era in the history of the industrial
classes in this country ?
