Scientists have discovered that most of

Judge Baker convened Circuit Court
yesterday morning. He made orders for
Grand Jury to convene thiB morning,
Petit Jury to meet next Monday, and con
tinued all cases in which the defendants
are out on bail. This week wid be con
sumed in the trials ol criminals in the
County Jail, mo3t impor'ant aurnj whom
is the negres-s Kate Cotton charged with
murder by poisoning.
Hon. Oscar Turner, the representative
in Congress from the IVducah, Ky., d'mtricr,
is again at loggerheads with the Central
Committee of the district, about the pri
maries. He refuses to enter the field in
the primaries ordered by the committee
and unless things are changed to suit him
he will doubtless again enter the campaign
entirely independent of and in opposition
to (he party machinery.
The Grand Jury will cotivene this
morning. It is very probable that, when
its labors shall be flnUnd, if it shall have
been faithful to the iuipoitant duties im
posed upon it and unsweriog in its dt ter
mination to bring the (guilty to a just retri
bution, that then this community will never
again be afflicted with a "strictly private'
wedding. States Attorney Leek is in duty
bound to see that "a fearful example" is
placed before tho public that will servo to
assuage tho bitterly disappointed and to
terrify any others of our popular s ciety
younc: people who may contemplate sneak
ing into the blissful statu ofjmatriiiiony un

In the County Conventions held by the
Democrats in Johnson aud Massac counties
last Saturday, Hon. F. E. Albright carried
the delegations to the Congressional Con
vention. This would givo Mr. Albright
thirteen delegates, assuming that William
son's niue delegates, who arc uot instruct
ed, are for him; and he claims they are.
He will need just twenty-six more to be
nominated aud he does not doubt that they
will be forthcoming.
Dr. Nowotuey returned jesterday from
Florida, bringing with him samples of the
several kinds of delicate fruits
raised there in abundance, and a very
flattering imprcsi-ion of the couutry gener

nearTamna. close to Mr. J. II. Metcalf's
place and not many miles from Mr. Wright's
town. He intends to establish his son,
Henry, on a plantation there aud may also
move down himself, with his drugstoie.
Mr. Sim Taber will remove soon to
Fort Woitli, Texas, to establish himself
permanently in business, and Mrs. S. Wil
liamson will occupy the house where now
Mr. Taber, is, with her stock of millinery
goods. Mrs. S. is already preparing to havo

Work has been begun under direction
of Mr. Daugherty, en the bridge over Goose

intends to put teams and m-n to work on

Pulaski Patriot: l,A new time card
will go into effect on the Cairo division of

May 11, and two divisions will be made out
of what has heretofore been one. Instead
of running 6olid trains from Cairo to Dan

This arrangement will necessitate double

Democrats should give some thought
now to po'itics and make up their minds to
take an active part in the party machinery
while the preparations for the campaign are
being male. No one can or ought to plead
"too much business" as an excuse for at
tending the primaries. Do not stand tsido
with your hands in your pockets, letting
other men do the work of organizing and
nominating, and then turn up your line
and criticise sneeringly what has been
done. Every Democrat has personal in
terest in th'j coming election and the graud
final result is only the gradual outgrowth
of many little gatherings aud resolutions
and discussions, and local organizitiou as
well as individual action. The primaries
are to be held in the five city precincts
next Friday and there should be a large
attendance in every precinct.
The following extracts from a half-
column editorial in the Jackson County
Era of last week, the leading Republican
paper of that county, will be read with
much interest by Democrats generally, and
by Republicans also: l,At this writing it
requires no prophet to recognize the fact
that John R. Thomas Ins every chance to
bo named for the fourth time as the Rpub
lican candidate for Congress. Naturally
the public would surmise that a man who
is so honored by the people must be ex
ceedingly popular, but this cise is an ex
ception to the rule. A number of office
hildera and would-be officer-holders con
spired together to thwart the wishes ol the
people and fasten upon the Republican par
ty a Congressional candidate who knows
no decency, nor halts at any means to help
himself." "If it be the desire of
the Congressional Convention yet to assem
ble, to insure the success of the Democracy
in the Tweutieth District, as well m in
nearly every county of the same, let them
place the name of John R. Tlmmas on the
Republican ticket as a candidate for Con
gress and go forth to battle under his ban
ner. This may seem strange talk coming
from the Era, but facts cannot well be con
cealed and we propose to combat (he suici
dal purpose of leading political stealers to
the last day."

are requested to meet at Rough and Ready

Theresa, w ith the remainder of the sur
vivors of the State of Florida has ar
rived. Captain Heyburn, of the Pouema
makes the Finsr statement
coming from that vessel's crew. He says
lie can give no Information of the cause
of the accident. He retired half an hour
before the collision, which knocked him
out of his bunk. Three minutes after
ward he found himself In the sea without
the ship. All hands were washed
off vthile trying to lower the
boats. The other two saved from
the Pouema are Thomas Mcholsou, of
Shetland and Augelo Kosa of Trieste. The
lost are follows: Williams, mate; Knud
skui, second mate; Fullerton, steward;
Won, carpenter; and Norman, Shaw,
Davidson, Jacobsen, Paul, Bussick, Lyons,
Johnston and two Italians. The Captain
saved no pars. Mate Williams was on
duty when the disaster occurred. Tbecap
tai u saw none of the ollicers after the collis
ion. Mr. Heyburn said he did not see the
Florida and did not know she hail gone
down. He did not know what struck
them. They were iu a boat thirty-four
hours. The Theresa picked them up
about half an hour before she came upon
the tirst of the Florida's boats. Captain
Hansen of the Theresa made
THE FOLLOWING STARTLING CIIAIIGK.
'The steamship City of Rome was
sighted Wednesday, April 23. The sea
was smooth and the weather clear; one
of the tliicst days since the taking of the
shipwrecked parties on board."
"How near did she pass?"
"So near you could heave a biscuit. At
all events," said the captain, "within
three ship lengths. We hung our ensign
upside down, the usual signal of distress.
She hoisted an answering pennant, but
lo ver slowed, and proceeded on her
Exhibition or the Manly Art by Billy
Edwards and Charley Mitchell.
M.w York, May 12. The great event
in sporting circles to-day is the meeting
at Madison Square Garden of those great
exemplars of the manly art, Billy Ed
wards and Charley Mitchell. Both have
been iu training for some weeks, aud each
,:t.t night expressed opinions of his
ability to defeat the other. Ed
wards has trained at 11. Travers'
country scat at Lyndhorst, X. J.,
with his brother Warry as his mentor.
Mitchell has trained at Williamsburg and
Billy Madden has had charge of hlin. Ed
wards was seen last night aud said that
he is in liner condition than any time since
he fought Arthur Chambers on Squirrel
lland, which Arthur won by a trick of his
second, who hit him on the shoulder when
Edwards had- him all but whipped.
Billy said he would mount the stage
t(i-night weighing about 131 pounds.
Mitchell says he will appear ready for the
battle weighing lot pounds. Mitchell
has been before the public much more
irequeutly during the past two years than
the ex-champion light weight, and his
style and mode of attack is better known
to those who recently became enthusi
astic attendants at boxing bouts. Hut
those who know tlie gentlemanly ex-machinist
are contldent he will win.
During the past two years Ed
wards has been busy as a private detec
tive for Ned Stokes, and has not appeared
often iu public. Previous to that he
often set-to with his brother and Prof.
Put. Jordan at benetlt performances, aud
any one who has seen him knows that a
more scientitic boxer never wore gloves.
Although Edwards is allowing his oppo
nent nearly two inches in height and
tweuty-three pounds in weight, there are
those who believe that he will beat the
English champion. The meeting between
Mitchell and Edwards will be preceded
by boxing by Costigan and Mulry, Mixey
and Dempsey, Crysier and Williams aud
others, who will make warm ami inter
