Somkrvilu, Tasm., Jane 30. Crops,
rain, grass and pontics Stat, district
and county are snbi sets that now cc
' cupy the thiwihts of the average citi-
yen of the go. d old county of Fayette.
At this season of the year oar mer
chants, lawyers and "tow o!k" gsn
cully have but l.ttle t J da beside read
i ing the Appeal atd discus ing the
'. prospects f jr good crop and the mer-
l its and demerits of the numerous can-
' ' djdatee now before the paople for their
support. As but little nas been said
' by the papers of your city about our
V "patriots'" I will give you a list of
them and my opinion as to the
chances of their carrying this county:
We have as candida'es for Chan
cellor of Ih's district H. J. Livingston,
of Brownsville, the present incum
. bent, and' Judge John Sjtnera, of
Dresden, ale 3 Chancellor of hie old
district. Both are Democrats, but the
, fast oi Judge Livingston being so well
known to our people, and having given
satisfaction in the pat, while Judga
Bomers is a comparative strarjger,
gives the former a better showing
' than tbe latter, though there are quite
a number of warm supporters of
Judge Somtrs in our county.
For Judge of our Circuit Court we
have as candidate, Jodie T. J. Flip
pin, who has occupied the position to
the entire satisfaction of his circuit for
sixteen years, and who is alto one of
the most popular men personally in
our county, and the lion. C. B. Simon
ton, of Covington, former member of
Congress from tbe Nitith District, and
a very Able and ponular sen
tleman. This being Judge Flip
pin's county, I feel safe in predicting
for him a good rxajority suae think
as high as 3500, and my own opinion is
near that figure in fact would not be
surprised at any majority that he
We have for Attorney General A.J.
Coates of Bolivar, Harry Young of
Covington, and 8. L. Cockioft of
Byer.iburg. Messrs. Young and Coates
have devoted coi siderable attootion to
our county, and both have ardent sup
porters. Mr. Cockroft is compara
tively unknown to u, though he is
. strongly indorsed by his friends in the
neper counties. The race is between
Young and Coates so far as Fayette is
concerned, with the chances about
Coming to home affairs, that is,
county offices, we have three candi
dates for Sheriff W. A. Koonce. F.
M. Knox and W. H. Fenick. Mr.
Koonce is known to nearly every man
in the county and has many friends
and, I may say, no enemies. He has
filled many important pot Mods ia onr
county and no one can be found who
has aught to say against him as man
or official. Mr. Knox Is the deputy of
onr present efficient Sheriff, Bob
Stever, and though not so well known
as Koonce, he bas made many friends
in bis present position. As to- Mr.
Penick, 1 cannot speak knowingly, as
he is a new seeker for public position.
Should either Knox or Koonce be
elected we will have a gocd Sheriff.
For County Court Clerk the present
incumbent, 8. H. Morton, seems to
have the inside track, as he cer ainly
is one of the best, in the State, and has
ga ned the respect of our people. His
opponent, Mr. W. M. Morrison is a
new man, and while many of our peo
ple think the offices ought to gj round
and give new men a chance, jet it will
take a strong man to beat Morton.
Dr. T. G. McClellan bas as compet
itor for the office be has filled eo long
and satisfactorily Trustee Mr, M,
A. Gober, former Eepreteuiativeof the
county, and a very ponular and esti
mable gentleman. Toe election of

So far everything looks lovely for
old Fayette Democracy, as all tbe
above candidates claim to be-
Vlong to that party. But now
comes the "tug of war." For
tKa flffiu TOamatAi VTA fi n .1 sir
candidates five Democrats and one
Republican the latter the "king bee"
of nis party in our county. The Dem
ocrats offering for this position are
Maj. E. W. Tatum, present incumbent j
W. A. Elam, County Superintendent
of Education ; Justice J. H. Hamner,
an 'active member of the County
Court for several years ;B. M. Stephen
ion; formerly a Justice of the Peace,
and Mr. R. L, Parker, a young man
who came from Mississippi a few
years ago, and who has been taacbing
school since that time. Dr. A. D.
Lewis carries tbe Republican banner,
' - and with five candidate to divide the
Democratic vote there can be but one
result, the election of the Republican.
jAs".the five Democrats announced
themselves befoie tbe Republican
.made his candidacy known, I suppose
they are unwilling to set le between
themselves as to who shall be the
'bearer of tbe party's banner. It
naturally rests with the Democratic
Executive Committee to settle the
nnmiion. hv rillino a convention or
, it 1 j c - -
, by a primary election. A con-
f .xention would probabiy be tn.
k "mere satisfactory way of disposing of
; ttoe matter. As I bave said, Lewis
will 'be our n?xt Register unless the
'; committee take the m-ttter in hand.
" This fact is recognized by everybody
who has given the m itter a moment's
'thought. No good Democrat can ob
ject to a conveution, and if there is
any other before us claiming . cur sup
port we want to know it.

Wabhingtw, June 39 Tbe Presi
dent may be a man of destiny, but
when betook bis fate into his own
hands long nough to mnrry a wife he
showed conclusive'y tint Le was
able to manage dorrtf stie as well
as political aftinrs. When the Repub
lican grumblers wanted t make a f a s
over trie appropriates iir the White
House conservatories and new furni
ture, a loyal Democrat at once hasten
ed to sty that they would probably be
less iu the future, "as we have a good
house keeper there now." - Marabal
Wilson rays that many ludcrous
things cccurred when be was nuking
the prisentit'ons at the last re
ceptioo. One immeuse female passed
tte President without even a glance,
and fairly pounced npon Mrj. Cleve
land, snlatmiDg, "Oh, you darling I"
Another rural sister paused immedi-
a'ely in front of ber and d-opped a
stiff little courtesy, reciting in a high
sing song a (peach which she had evi
dently prepared lor the cccasion:
"May you be as happy as your station
is exalted." The truth is that
Mrs. Cleveland has so com
pletely taken ell hearts by storm that
we shall probably son have a
transformation scene in which all Re
publicans have changed to Democrats.
Especially may this be looked for in
tbe case of of the Rev. Byron Sunder
land, who could not sufficiently abuse
and villify the Democratic pari? dur
ing the last campaign. The Presi
dent's course toward bim reminds me
of the story of the unhappv wife who
went to her pastor for advice as to her
course toward her wicked husband.
"Well," said the minis'er, "bs kind,
and heap coals of fire on his head."
"Ibave tried b'ilin watir," was the
placid reply, "but. it didn't do a
ycatbly bit er good."
Both the Postmaster General and
Secretary Whitney entertained the
President and wife at dinner last week.
Such oriental luxury and opulent dis
play as the Whitneya indulge in bave
not been seen here for tome years.
Some wonder and many envy, but
nobody ever tries to imitate. Their
last dinner party wai a sort of
naval affair, and the officers in
vited appeared in full uniform. Mrs.
Cleveland's gown wai of Chauiilly
lace, embroidered wit a jet and decollete.
She wore a diamond necklace. Her
school friend, Miss Greg, of Buffalo,
wbo has been visiting at the Wbi'e
Home for some days, wore a white
silk, with long square train. She is a
pretty girl with dark eyes, quite
petite and exceedingly bright.
Washington continues to be in a
quiet way very delightful, socially,
i he weather has been so exception
ally cool that the summer begira has
scarcely commenced, and, of course,
we could never be lonely or dull or
unblessed, so long as congressional
effulgence remains. r. l, c.

And the bridges that oroaa them ax ninety
And ao toon aa the wind of morning blows.

Upon each brldgo 'gina the fhofflo and beat
Of hundreds of noofi and thousand! of fo.t;
And all day long there is duat and din,
And the ooolie elbowa the mandarin,
And gibe ia airen, and oath and blow

It grlered the King that it should be ao;
Then out of hia wisdom spoke King Tee
"Build me a hundredth bridge, the beat,
Higher and wider than all the rest.

And whon a month and a day were spent,

regret ia heard for all the trouble, ex
pense and labor tint has been mag
nanimously devoted the past two weeks
in preparation for the event by the
ladies of Lyon and surrounding
On the evening of June 30th your
correspondent strolled towards the
beautiiul grove opposite town to view
ihe preparations and he was surprised
at their extent and magnififecce. As
we entered the portals of tbe beautiful
sylvan tetreat we no iced overhead in
emblematic des'gn the word "Wel
come," indicative of the sentiments of
tbis happy and contented people in its
reception of their visitors. Wending
our way we came across the music
s ands, creqnet grounds, dancing tlocr,
cozy seats, all clean and neat as the
appointments of a well regulated
home. Ahead of us we saw tongues
of tiimo and c ouds of smoke reaching
even to the tops of the noble trees by
which we were surrounded, present
ing a grand and weird spectacle.
Tot re we found Wi.l Cammack, ths
prince of bsrbecuians, and a host of
stalwart cooks, the ground being liter
ally strewn with well dre sed caictsses
of beel, mutiOD, pork, kid, etc., in
such profusion as to make oa hesitate
to leave the cbarmed spot.
The weather has been so fickle of
late that tbe minds of the various com
mittees were full of apprehension as to
the fruition of tbeir hopes, but on the
morning of the 1st we breathed the
bracing atmosphere and gazad upon
the brilliancy of the rising sun, all
hearts were filled with g'ad thankful
ness, for we felt that all would be well. .
And all was well; for very scon after
sunrise happy groupB of elegantly
dressed ladies and gentlemen thronged
tbe town. Memphis, Hollywood. Tu
tiica, Evausville, Austin, Lula, Helena,
Delta, Glendale, Jonestown, Friars
Point, Clarksdale, Belen, Husb
puckena, and other places contributed
thtir quota of visitors, strains of
sweetest music filled the air. The
colors of the la jits' dresses blended in
exquisite harmony with the regalia of
the Lyon Rsds and the Friars Point
Blues, and. forgetting what we are so
often told from afar of the swamps, we
believed we were on fairy land, for
every neart seemed light, every step
elastic, eyery tongue 1oyou, every
ouotenance Bmiliug. Verily, we were
ia for a day of "merry making."
But why conticus. Every feature
of tbe diy's proceedings was a success.
The tab e was exquisitely neat, and ',
groaned under the pressure of every
viand that the most fastidious could
desire, and the cooking and appoint
ments could not be excelled. We can
scarcely bust ourselves to enumerate
the number that ate, it being com
puted that from 800 to 1500 persons
were present, and ths news goes forth,
far and wide, all had "enough."
Dinner Loing over, the dance com
menced, stately quadrille and fastastic
waltz followed each other in rapid suc
cession, making a joyous scene long to
be renumbered, but, like all our joys,
it was too nesting and the comber
BliaJes of evening broke up the en
chantment and group after group left
the ground, leaving the trees of the
forest and the vacant seats a'one in
their glory. .
During the day there were several
games of baseball which attracted
crowds of spec'ators, the chief contest
being between Friars Point and Lyon
and the youths oi Clarksdale and
Friars Point. Ia the former game
Friars Point gained the victory, and in
tbe Utter Clarksdale. The gentle
manly deportment of tbe visiting
clubs was warmly commented npon.
About dark t is band struck up
again, Bereoaded the different families
in town and finally halted at the resi
dence of G. P. Graham, which was
brilliantly lllumi tated for tbe occa
sion, and where, until daylight, a
large and happy throng of people
"tripped the light fantastic toe."
So ended one of tbe happiest days it
was ever our good foitune to spend.
Not a jar or unoc ith expression, but
the whole machinery cf tbe proceed
ings wound i'se'f up with ease and
gracefulnens. I We are proud of our
vimtors, proud of ourselves, and we
hope ere long to m 'St again, embrace
the right band of fe lowahfp and puh

Pittsboro, Miss, lor killing W. T.
Pries of Dallas, Texas, in Calhoon

our jaii on Friday morning, where he
had been confined for tale keeping
eiuce his trial, to tbe place of execu
tion, going via Cjffeeville. The his
tory of tte trial and conviction of
Bieutp, was given to tbe readers of
theArt-SAL by its correspondent at
Pittib.ro, immediately af:er his trial.
We do not therefore deem it neceesaty
for us to give the circumstances of tbe
killing. We will state, however, that
tbe evidence was altogether circum
stantial. Doe Bishop was . born in
Manor county, Alabama, on October
27tb, 1857, consequently is twenty-
nine years oi ate. us is a splendid
spetimen of physical man, weighing
when in his normal condition a trifle
over 200 pounds; he is s:x"feet two
inches; he wears bis coal
black hair carefully parted - in
the middle after the lateet dude ago.
ny;hiseyei are very dark acd rest
less, seeming to take in everything
around him. His complexion, natu
rally dark, has become bleached and
somewhat sallow from his long con
finement In his movements he is
qu'ekaud nervous.. He has had tbe
advantages of a common school edu
cation, and bat been spending bis
last few days reading the Bible and
writing to his friends and relatives. It
was reported here that tbe condemned
man had ben guilty of a number of
murders before coming to tbis county.
All such reports ha denounces aa false.
He denies having killed anybody be
fore the difficulty with the Harrison
brothers at Dallas, Miss. Says, how
ever, he did shoot a negro in Lowrd s
county, this 8 ate, about ten yeitrs
ago, but tbat the negro recovered. He
was shot in bis arm by Jim L?e in
Calhoun county dining the summer of
18H.J. tie claims tha. be was never
drunk but a verv few times in hie lifo.
and the day of his difficulty with the
Harrisons he bad only taken but one
small drink. He says he had spent
several years of his life in Tcxis, Ar
kansas and the Indian Territory. Dur
ing his wandering he was engaged in
a number of personal difficulties, none
of which, however, he considered se
rious. Bishop cro tea's that te is in
nocent of the crime for which he suf
fered the penalty of death: swears
tbat he never saw Wise, detd or alive;
Bays he believes he knows who com
mitted the deed, but that he and Bob
Lamar are innocent: he further in
sists tbat he naver enjoyed the privi
lege of a fair trial, and was very hotter
aga'nst Judge Roan for not granting
uim a cuHiigeoi venue, waen ne,it-an,
knew tbat tbe sentiment cf tbe county
was almost unanimous against him.
Bishop was married to Miss Lamar
December 19, 1883. She is a sister of
Bob Lamar, who is to bs tried at the
cext term of tbe Circuit Court in Cal
houn for the same crime for which his
brothiir-in-law now suffers the penalty
of death. He leaves his wife and two
children in destitute ciicumstancee,

of an uncharitable world, he having
