Her Last Tour.
New York, March 12. Without
the trace of a smile on her lips and
in all seriousness, Adelina Patti
said: ,4I have made my last fare
well tour in America."
The great 6inger arrived here af
ter a tour of many weeks, during
which she sang in the principal cit
ies pt this country at the set price
of f5,000 a concert. In all Mine
Patti will take 1200,000 out of
America when she sails this after
noon for London. To-day she was
resting at the Savoy, a very tired
woman, who, despite all the com
forts that so witn luxurious cars
and hotels, is travel sore and weary
from her singing labors.
"But don't think that I am sore
in my heart," said Mine. Patti. "I
have a great love for America. I
am in no eense broken hearted
about my tour, which was indeed a
profitable one. The trouble of the

Southern Man for President.
Washington, March. 11. When
asked to express his views on the
Democratic nomination for presi
dent, and the situation as he viewed
it, Representative Malcolm R. Pat
terson, of the Tenth Tennessee dis
trict, said today:
"While it is apparent that Mr.
Hearst has some friends in the
South, I would regard his nomina
tion for presidf-ni as a great mistake,
as his defeat would be certain and
lie said from what he had heard
of Judge Parker, of New'York, he
was a jnan of clean, honorable life,
with ability of a pretty high order.
But he was open to the objection
that practically nothing was known
of his views on public questions,
that he had not been identified with
the great politics of the government,
and it was doubted whether he could
arouse the enthusiasm necessary
for a successful campaign. "
Mr. Patterson said that there was
no doubt that a stro ig undercurrent
of sentiment existed all over the
country which might rise to a de
man', for the recalling of Cleveland
from private life and again making'
him the nominee of the party It
is argued that his views of the
money question would not now be
questioned, as that was no longer
an issue; that he had the confidence
of the country, and that he always
understood and sympathized with
the South on the race question and
never hesitated while he was presi-
tent to appoint Southern men to
high public station, and gave thai
section the only representation it
has had since Buchanan's days. It
isfnither urged that as the exact
oppo-ition oi strenuous Roosevelt,
he would represent the conservative
sentiment of the country and rally
to his support all those who believe
in a government by law, and not
one of force.
'My own opinion," said Mr.
Patterson, "is lhat Cleveland is the
man with whom we can beat Roos
veil, ad do away with negroism.
militarism, and sll the other false
isms with which the Republican
party stands charged.
"But beyond the nomination of
any particular candidate, I tnintt
a great opportunity presents itself
to the South to now assert her po
litical independence. She has been
subservient long enough, and it is
now time that the mortgage on her
electoral voles was lifted and that
she should take her historic place
in the Union. I think the time has
come when anv Southern man who
is of presidential size has the right
and the way open to make his as
pirations known, and I think the
South should not hesitate to go for
any man from the South simply for
"The question ought to be now,
uot from what section a man comes,
but what of his worth and his
qualifications. Williams of Missis
sippi, Bailey of Texas, Carlisle of
Kentucky, aud many others who
might be mentioned, are the equals
in ability, to any man in the
couiitry. I should like to 6ee the
delegates from the South go to the
convention uuiustructed for any
particular 'candidate, but to . select
the best man for our nominee, with
out regard to section. Whenever
she asserts her independence politic
ally she will have done a great work,
and the 6tart must be made."

simple arithmetic opportunities double in that State. What if
three-fourths the population be eliminated? Opportunities quad
