One of tbe last official acts of the late
Capt John O. Soott and tbe last license
ever issued by him was one without a
parallel In 'he Galena or any other dis
trict of the United States
It was a mate's license Issued to Mrs
Mary Simmons, of Hel na. Ark .she hav
ing previously stood a successful examl
nation and duly signed by Capt. Soott
and by him for Cap' T. W. Burns, who
was ill The happy holder of the license
is now ph ing her vocation on the lower
Mississippi and she stands without a
rival, the only female mate in the United
States. The license was issued on De
But the fact is of additional interest,
tbe lady being one wbo is well known to
many Oalenisns She is the wife of Capt.
W. W. Simmons, a brother of Henry
Simmons, of Oalena, a man well known
on the upper river and in this city where
be was born and reared. She Is the
daughter of James Owens, or West Ga
lena, and has been married several years.
She Is only twenty-four years of age and
has lived continuously on the river for
eight years, and is perfectly acquainted
with all the details of tbe management of
steamboats. Her husband is captain of
the transfer J F. Joy, owned and run by
tbe Llnehan Ferry company of Memphis.
Tenn Mn Simmons applied for a mas
ter's license, lint owing to a recent act of
congress requiring a year's experience at
male before one was qualified as muter
she was unable to procure a license. She
will serve her apprenticeship for the year
on the transfer lioat Jov. of wbich ber
husband It captain.
In ninkinir out the license the unique
ness of the affair required Capt. Scott to
make a number of changes in the pre
scribed form Mrs. Simmons swore to
being a native' of the United States, in
stead or a citizen.' as those of the sterner
sex are required to do. Several 'hlma in
the form were also changed to tally with
tbe sex of tbe license.
The Memphis Apptal describes Mrs
Simmons as an attractive womnn who
understands every point of her business.

It is reported that Wm. Clendenin, G.
W. Walker and u number of others are
negotiating for the purchase of S. W.
Wbeelock's farm of sixty acres east of the
city, the Madison farm east of Mr.
Wbeelock's, containing forty acres, and
tbe farm of Mrs. .lane Britton, contain
iug 104 acrea. It Is claimed that the
syndicate proposes to lay a portion out
as a park, in which a lake will be formed
which will be stocked with flab and sup
plied with boats and boat housea, while
another portion would bo divided into
acre lota and placud upon the market.
Col Clendenin. when asked about the
matter, said that such negotia
tions bad been in progress for some
length of time. and that ba
thought tbe deal would be made.
When asked aa to what other
persons were interested with himself and
Mr. Walker, be replied that it is tint yet
certain, there having been some talk whb
quite a number of different Individuals,
some of whom have not yet fully decided
whether or uot to take an interest in
the syndicate. S. W. Wbeelock, when
asked concerning tbe transaction, said
that all be knew of tbe matter was that
be bad been asked to make an offer for
tbe sale of bis laid and had given a thirty
day option at a cerUin price. At that
lime he bad been informed that it was to

Thousands or republicans are dissatis

Morton in opening a saloon.
There is to be a very interesting enter
tainment at Zumaon tbe evening of Feb.

Recently the Hon. Vtindy Snort, repre
sentative in congress rrom the yellow
corn distr ct, paid a visit to bis constit
uents, and thus addressed them: "This
magnificent, overwhelming and paralyz
ing ovation is only equaled by that spon
taneous and irrepressible welcome always
extended to me as your distinguished
representative every time 1 enter the balls
of congress (Tremendous applause, ard
cries of "bully for congress! ) My
countrymen, the great prosperity of the
farmers today Is due to the marvelous
nfluence of our high protective tariff.
(Amid the applause which followed this
declaration, an old fellow shoveled into
the stove a bushel of corn, at tbe sight
of wbich the orator said ) "Little did I
expect that my old friend would furnish
such an ocular demonstration or tbe
truth or my assertion, that tbe tariff is
the great source of the farmer's wonder
rul proaperitv. (Great applause) Un
dcr tbe magical influence or tbe piotec
tive tariff tbe yield per acre or corn has
increased to an alarming extent not
alarming to the farmers, but alarming to
the coal barons of the land.
(Applause, and cries ot "down with
tbe coal barons' It requires no
prophet, my fellow citiens. to. see that
under the influence of the tariff corn is
rapidly coming to tbe front as the popu
lar fuel of the day. (Cyclonic applause.)
And why should it not. my countrymen?
First, It Is cheaper than coal, second, it
Is free from cinders, third, It is free from
sulphur; rourtb, it is cleaner than coa
(Great applause ) What more pleasant
and sublime scene can wc contemplate
than to witness tbe rarmer in bis richly
furnished, four-story brick mansion, with
twenty-two rooms, a mansard roof and
seven gables, listening to bis queenly
daughter as she pla s tbe accompaniment
on her thousand dollar Steinway grand
piano, and sings that beautiful farm bal
lad, "The Flowers that Bloom in tbe
Spring, tra la," while he. with his wife
and littla ones, toast their toes berore a
Are, from fuel wbich nature has furnished
on the cob as the product or his own
soil? (Immense applause) But gentle
men, tuls Is not all. nor even hair. Un
der tbe wonderful influence of the pro
tective tariff, you are not only a holy
terror to tbe coal monopolies, but the
farmer is boss ot the cattle market. To
day, by the aid of the tariff, you And
yourselves so thoroughly masters of the
situation that Mr. P. D. Armour is rorced
to convey your cattle in palace cars fur
nished for the express purpose of accom
modating the farmers, where youi ani
mals are gorgeously entertained in stock
yards erected for your special beneAt.
(Applause and cheers for Armour) And
gentlemen I am gratified to be able to tell
you. that under the munificent provisions
of the Interstate commerce law, this loye
ly arrangement, so advantageous to the
farmers, has been held to be perfectly
Itgal and Mr. Armour can't get out of it
(Tbree rousing cheers for the courts)
But more, my countrymen. Cries of,
''Yes, give us more ." There is not a dud
upon your backs, board in your pitr-poo,
chicken house, corn crib or cow shed thai
Is not fully protected Your wagons,
plows, reapers, mowers, furrows, drills,
flies, jack-knives, saws, augurs, gimlets,
all are protected (Three cheers ror the
tariff) Yes, gentlemen, well may you
give three cheers for the tariff, for I am
told that In some parts of this glorious
west potatoes are selling at eight cents
per bushel. Now there is ten cents
protection on each bushel. So you
see, gentlemen, were it not for the
tariff, our farmer friends would he
compelled to pay some emissary of
Jobn Bull and free trade two cents per
bushel to take potatoes off their bands.
(Applause and cries of "down with John
Bull.") And I promise you. my friends,
that the flrst thing I shall do, when I, as
your distinguished representative, return
to my seat in congress, will be to put a
check on John Bull that will not soon be
forgotten. I will move for a tariff on
dirt. (Cries or good . ) I have alwavs
felt that It Is a humiliating outrage for
o'ir western farmers' so l, ten feet deep.
to be constantly kept in competition with
the pauper soil of Europe. And my
countrymen, a reasonable tariff on air
iuld protect this glorious climate against
the llmburger atmosphere or Germany.
(Great applause and cries of "down with
pauper soil ' and "give us rresh air."i
The protective tariff has brought you
another great blessing. It has enabled
you to force the money kings of the east
to unlock their ill-gotten gains and
shower them on tbe farms or tbe west.
There is scarcely a home that has not en
joyed one or these showers. It is true
you gave to these mnne sharks a small
parchment wlh the autograph of your
self and wife Home emissary ir John
Bull, some unreconstrued rebel or chair
man of some democratic committee, has
insulted your dignity and intelligence by
calling these psrebments mortgages, but
they are not mortgages, gentlemen, they
are only souvenirs, little mementoes so to
speak, which in the generosity and kind
ness or your hearts, you gave the money
sharks to remind them of the power the
rarmer possesses under the glorious In
fluence or a high tariff. The little oblong
slips or paper resembling your tickets to
tbe opera, tbe low, vile and vulgar classes
i 'ill interest notes when In truth, and in
fact, they are not interest notes, but
simply little semi annual reminders to
your financial agents that you still have
your bee la upon their necks ready to
cr-ii-s-h them tbe very moment they
don't behave. (Overwhelming applause
renewed every few minutes, after which
tbe farmers walked borne.) Meantime a
railway agent supplied tbe Hon. Windy
Snort with passes for 1890.
