picts the life of those who stayed at

of the Great Misunderstanding," and
he contended that if the people of the
Soutli had undcrst'-jd thc people of the
North as well as they did when the
war was half over, or If the people of
the North had known more of the
people of thc South would never have
been any war. One of the main caus
es of the war was ignorance of the
strength of tho opposing forces. The
o| luton prevailed down South that thc
war would last only Blxty days, and
many young men enlisted in the South
ern armies as If they were going on a
jaunt, many of them carrying dress
suits to wear at the victorious ball to
he given at Richmond. The North was
euually Ignorant -of the strength o?
the South as President Lincoln show
ed when he called for onlv 7B.000
troop "to quell tho rebellion." Anoth
er great cause of tho war was the
presence of the protervld orators who
stirred up their audiences and appeal
ed to their pr?judice?, asserting that
"one Southerner could lick a dozen
yankees with a cornstalk."
J>r. Steel was a-farmer boy down
In Mississippi? and while he drives)
home some gruat truths of tho war. his
lecture is mainly of'his personal ex
periences during t!ie war. Hb home
was near,<o same of the/great bailies
and In tho midst of stirring scenes
whir*' ltiil an lndcU.be! Impression on
his young mind. Some of !:is earliest
recolle t ons of the- war .centered
nround a visit of thp' Methodist dru itt

cou./quent argument ov?r th ? ap
proaching conflict; His father con
tended that ibo . North was stronger
than the South and, had il ll tul ta ble re
sources, from v/'olch <tn dr.!'.*.. while '' e
minister took the posit'>.i that the|
North would not'fight, and that the
"war" would be ovet in sixty days.
A touplftt of doggerel vr.'ch he
quoted showed the prevailing idea
"The cornstalk liddle and thc rusty
Wil make thc plauged yankees
The picture drawn by tho speaker
showing thc terror and the anxiety cf
the people when the distant noise or
tattle could bc heard, was cuite vivid,
and convinced his auditors that all tb?
heroism was tot need at tho front.
Hack-of this was the ever pi osent
dread that when the onion armies ap
proached the negroes would ' risc and
murder the whites;" "*Be it said to
their credit," said tho speaker, "there
was no need for thia fear, for no more
loyal body of people ever lived than the
Southern slave during the war."
In conclusion. Dr. Steel drew a beav
ttful picture of thc South. He said
there was small wonder that the North
fought ?o hard to keep thc South from
seceding for When God created the
world he made the best part down in

for Alderman (live* Views.
- Editor Tho Intelligencer:
Having decided to ontcr the race
for Alderman from Ward Ono in the
coming city primary. I desire to let
tho voters know where I stand on
the issues ot the approaching primary
1. I am in favor of a clean city,
the moral tono of our town should
bo the best of any city, and I favor
putting good moral men in the vn
rlouB places to bo lilied by tho incom
ing city council. and uverthying
should bo done that would promote
should be done that would promote
tho highett standard ot morals that
It ia possible to attain.
2. White I nm In favor of an econo
mical admtnisratlon, 1 am also tn '?iv
or of a progressive administration. I
am in favor of ONE MAN for a ONK
MAN'S job, and I am oposed to any
one Man':; position, being Oiled by
more than one mau at the expense
of the taxpayers.
3. I um in favor of a clean city,
and to obtain this lt will be necessary
to extend the sewer system, and thia
should be done In preference to work
of a less Important nature, and the
whole city should be sewered as soon
3. I am in favor of Municipal Own
ership for the ahbattoir, and the in
spection of ali foods, and the city
should continue to keep an inspector
that will at all times safe guard the
city and its citizens from using meats
or other provisions that are unwhole
some and dangerous to the health of,
4. I am in favor of efficient Are and
police departments, and both of these
departments should bc maintained In
keeping with, the city'* progresa.
6. Doubtless you all know the po
sition I have taken on the franchise.
I am BOW, and have always been op
posed to a forty year franchise of
any kind, and especially of water or
light franchise; to any individual or
corporation. I believe the Franchise
granted to The Southern Public Util
ities Company, was irregularly Ille
gally passed by a majority of tho
present City Council; and over the
protest of the. minority members of
said council. And if r am elected I
shall favor having the. present Fran
chise set asid<ror annulled.
And then the future management of
the water, and light questions should
he left for the voters of the city to
determine fer themselves.
