The Bolivar Bulletin.
Hugh Williams, Editor.
FRIDAY, MARCH 20, 1903.
The bill to repeal the char
tcr of Toone has passed third
reading in the Senate.
Mr. Carter has introduced
a bill to authorize Middleton
to levy $3.00 poll tax on men
between 21 and 50 years of
age for street purposes.
The Commercial Appeal
suggests Cleveland for Presi
dent, Bryan for Vice Presi
dent and "harmony" for the
platform in 1904. It might
as well suggest that the Miss
issippi How up-stream and
empty its flood tide in Lake
The bill to provide a
Governor's Mansion was kill
ed in the House Wednesday
by a vote of 50 to 40, but a
motion to reconsider was en
tered. The members who
voted aerainst the bill must
indeed have little regard for
the dignity of the office.
The Anti-Saloon league
has accomplished good re
sults, a proof of the value of
organized effort. One of
the next most important mat
ters to the people of Tennes
see is good roads. Hereafter
send men to the legislature
who will favor road improve
The fancy price at which
cotton is selling, will doubt
less, induce many of our farm
ers to increase the acreage
this year. But the "cotton
market is fickle and the farm
er who cultivates cotton to
the exclusion of all other
crops runs a risk. Better mix
a good portion of hog and
hominy along as you go.
THE CREST OF THE RISE IN THE
MISSISSIPPI HAS PASSED
Washington, March 17.
(Special.) The crest of
the rise of the Mississippi
river, -according to the
weather bureau, has passed
Memphis. iN'o further rise
is expected at Memphis. The
break in the levee twenty
miles above the city has
caused the gauge to drop,
and the fall will be quicker
on this account. However,
all water that goes through
the crevasse will be poured
into the St. Francis basin,
and will be eventually re
turned to the Mississippi
above Helena. The weather
bureau officials observed to
day that although the stage
at Memphis now is without
precedent, there is not as
much water in the river as
there was in 1897. The high
stage of the river is due
to a considerable extent to
the increase in the number
of levees, so that the water is
held within narrower bounds
thus causing it to rise higher.
Then, too the rivers . west of
the Mississippi this year have
poured in immense volumes
of water. This served in a
measure to retard the flow of
the Mississippi, and conse
quently it rose higher. The
crevasse above New Orleans
is expected to relieve the
situation at that city. The
Ohio river from Evansville
to Paducah will fall slowly,
and there will be a slight fall
at Cairo by tomorrow. The
Mississippi from Chester to
Cairo will be falling tomorrow.
Senator Hoar's Eulogy On The
"Although ray life politically and
personally has been a life of almost
constant strife with the leaders of
the Southern people, yet as I grow
older I have learned not only to re
spect and esteem but to love the
great qualities which belong to my
fellow-citizens of the Southern
States. They are a noble race. We
may well take pattern from them in
some of the great virtues which
make up the strength as they make
the glories of free States. Their
love of home, their chivalrous re
spect for women, their courage,
their delicate sense of honor, their
constancy which can abide by an
opinion or a purpose , or an interest
for their States through adversity
and prosperity, through the years
and through- the generations, are
things by which the people of the
more mercurial North may take a
lesson. And there is another thing
covetousness, corruption, the low
temptation of money has not yet
found any place in our Southern
"Now, my friends, we cannot af
ford to live, we don't wish to live,
and we do not live in a state of es
trangment from a people who posses
these qualities. They are friends of
ours; bone of our boneing, flesh of
our flesh, blood of our blood, and
whatever may be the temporary
error of our Southern States, I, for
one, if I have a right to speak for
Massachusetts, say to her: 'Entreat
me not to leave thee; for where thou
goest I will go, and where thou
stayest I will stay. Thy people
shall by my people, and thy God
There are two facts that should
be kept in view when it comes to
framing or amending road laws.
One fact is that good roads cannot
be made without the expenditure
of a good deal of money. The
other fact is that no road law, can
secure good roads, unless the peo
ple earnestly and resolutely put the
law into practical effect. The trouble
with most laws is that they are not
properly observed and enforced,
and the road law is notau exception
iti this regard. If we are so have
a complete system of good roads in
Tennessee, the counties must take
action and provide the money need
ed. The state cannot build the
roads, but the counties can. The
state can greatly expedite good road
building with a good road law, but
for securing the best results the
counties must take the herculean
hand. Smithville Review.
Congress Recognizes Services of
Railway Mail Clerks.
Washington, March 13. Congress
after much hesitation on the subject
has at last granted a lump sum of
$1000 to the family of every railway
mail clerk killed in the line of duty
The law will extend its first benefits
to those who lose their lives during
the present year, and from this time
on will bestow an equivalent of pen
sion, small though it be, upon the
widows and children of a class of
Uncle Sam's employes which is ex
posed to extraordinary perils. In
deed there are no other government
6ervante(barring soldiers a' id sailors
in war time, perhaps) whose occupa
tion is nearly so dangerous.
There is no other occupation in
the world that is so perilous as that
of our railway mail clerks. They
number about 9000, and ordinarily
they get something like $1200 a
year, though their pay varies some
what with length of service. It is
not much considering the fact that
they are constantly exposed to
chances of death. During the last
year, which broke the record for
casualties, they were mixed up in
900 accidents on the rail. Nine of
them were killed eighty-eight of
them were seriously injured. This
record was nothing very extraordi
nary, however. In 1901 mail clerks
were caught in 825 accidents, in
which seven were killed, sixty-three
seriously, and 229 slightly wounded.

Memphis, Tenn., March 14 The
Illinois Central is surveying a line
