The democratic state convention

Kan? a i City platform, and voted
down a plank favoring governmen
ownership of railroads. Good.
Mississippi wiil elect its next

purpose. Senator Money, the
present incumbent, and Gov. Lon

Things have come to a pretty
pass when men are forced to leave

for testifying to the truth before a

Welcome to Governor Wright.
We are indebted to Mr. John T.
Patrick, of Manila, P. I., for a copy
of the Manila Times, of April 30th,
containing a splendid picture of
Vice-Governor Luke E. Wright
and a lengthy and interesting ac
count of the reception tendered him
upon his return to the Islands.
Jtrom the above mentioned paper
we copy the following editorial:
"The Times is very glad to join
in the general welcome to Vice
Governor Wright. We are glad
that he has come back and that this
country is to have the benefit of his
services for an extended period. He
is deserving of the highest commen
dation of the people of the Phil
ippines and the- spontaneous out
pouring today shows that the
people are mindful of their obliga
"Gov. Wright has rendered very
valuable services to the Philippines.
As a member of the commission, as
acting governor in the absence of
Judge Taft, and as the representative
of the country at Washington he
has been ever mindful of the best
interests of the Philippines and has
constantly labored for their welfare
and advancement. He has held
Bteadfast to his convictions in the
face of opposition, and time has
shown that he was generally right.
He has broadened and grown with
the work since he reached the islands
and is excellently equipped to aid in
dealing with the problems aud tasks
of the future.
"Geneial Wright's work since he
left here in October last has further
endeared him to the people. He was
nominally at home on leave, but as
a matter of fact be spent nearly all
of the time at Washington urging
the cause of the Philippines before
Congress. lie was at his former
home in Tennessee only for a short
time, and his principal recreation
has been two trips across the Pa
cific. He was largely instrumental
in securing the passage of the Phil
ippines' Currency bill, the bill
granting $3,000,000 as a gift to the
people of the Philippines, and the
measure under which the Constabu
lary was reorganized and the native
scouts made available for policy
"We repeat that we are glad to see
him back, that we extend our
warmest congratulations to him for
his success in Washington, and that
we trust he will long gii

Cleveland Repudiates Idea of

Grover Cleveland tonight utterly
repudiated the idea that he is
striving for another term of the
"It is perfectly absurd," he said,
"to subrrtjse that I have anv desire
to enter public life, nor have I re
motely entertained the thought

ago. I have no higher aspiration
than to pass my days in peace with
my family around me, and take no
part in politics, which any private
citizen can not tjke with the utmost
As for the movement inaugurated
in Brooklyn Mr. Cleveland said:
"I never spoke to anybody on the
subject of a fourth candidacy; have
never written to a political friend

that any such effort will be made by

party to become strong and united

which made it aggressive, victori

It may be repeated with absolute
confidence that Mr. Cleveland
neither desires nor expects the
Democratic nomination next year.
He is contented, happy here and con
templates only the continuation of
his present environment which
brings all but completeness to the
remaining years of his life.

General Crop Conditions.
Generally fair and cool weather
prevailed during the early part of
tire week, followed by warmer con
ditions, with showers over the state
on tne iym ana -iuiu, wnicu were
greatly beneficial to growing crops.
The week, altogether, was very fa
vorable for farm work; which was
pushed rapidly forward, and at the
close, much of the lost time was re
gained. Wheat harvest constituted
the greatest item in the work on
hand, and is about completed, and
threshing has already beguu; the
crop, as a rule, is yielding much be
low expectations. Oats are ripen
ing, aud promise a fine yield. Corn
is mostly small for "the season but
is generally healthy and growing
well where it has received fair cul
tivation; the early crop in the west
ern and southern counties-is being
"laid by." Cotton is small and not
growing well, the recent cool nights
being adverse to its healthy devel
opment. Irish potatoes are devel
oping finely, but bugs are destruc
tive in same- localities; planting the
second crop is now in progress.
Clover is in fine growth. Apples
and grapes promise fair crops. The
shipment of early vegetable has be
