Ex. - Col. Wm. L. Nugent, one of the fore most lawyers of the State, died at his homo in Jackson, Jan. 18. The Clarion Ledger in announcing his death says : Col. Nugent came to Jackson just about a quarter of a century ago, from Greenville, since which time he has been hi the foremost, not only of his profes sion, the law, but in all work of church or State having for its object the eleva tion and betterment of the human race, the extension of the public road system, the spread of religion and the surroun ding of the youth of the country with all the safeguards and aids to a higher civ ilizution. Talking to a reporter of the Commer cial-Appeal at Washington, Senator Money said there was not a word of truth in the report that he had sent to Consul General Lee a communication deman dinfi a retraction of the Consul General ' denial of the published statement of Mr Money, to the effect that Gen. Lee told him, upon the occasion of his recent visit to Cuba, to see Secretary Olney upon his return to Washington and tell him that lie considered further Spanish effor to subdue the insurgents doomed to cer tain failure. He then repeated the -muxuivuh uiai ne nuu Borne consul General Lee's message to Secretary Olney. that he stood upon what he had previously said, and that he had nothing to say regarding the denial of Gen. Lee Cardinal Gibbons, in the chapter on the 4 'Power of Oratory' ' in his forth coming work, pays the following trib ute to William Jennings Bryan : "What more striking evidence can we have of the persuasive and over whelming force of eloquence than that furnished by Mr. Bryan's speech at the National Democratic Convention, hold in Chicago, July, 1896 T "The burning words of the orator spread over the surging mass before him with the force and rapidity of a prairie fire in his own Western country. Th effect was electrical. The audience of 15, 000 persons were swayed by the irre Bistable power of his eloquence as the trees of the forest bend before the storm The young speaker, comparatively nn known to fame, became the idol of the hour.

If the article in regard to Mississippi's finance is a correct statement of the fi nancial condition of Mississippi, we are at a loss to know how any practical bniness man, can possibly favor issuing bonds of the state to the extent 9750, 000 "or a million dollars for the erection of a new capital building,' on account of . state pride. " The, day of reckoning mnt come. If it is true as we have no doubt, that the state is now spending annually more than its revenues, where - is it to end? We have no right to make a debt 'for our children to pay" to build fine houses, What would be thought of a father, who on account of family pride would give his notes,, bor money, and bnild a magnificent resi dence, trusting that his children would meet the same. Would he not likely lose his house, 'and also the love of his children? And in that 'case the chll dren would only lose the property of the father which with proper management would have descended to them . Our legislators must have the nerve to either reduce the present expenditures or raise the taxes. It is cowardly to contiue to usue bonds to even meet cur rent expenses and thus mislead the peo pie The proseut enormous expendl ture of money for our public schools is a question that mnst also be mot.

Tho financial condition of .Mississippi chaltaiigos the attention of the pross any 'public. A brief history of the causes that led to the deficiency cannot fail to prove interesting. It will be remembered that in Janu ary, 1890, at the threshold Of Governor Stone's administration, the state treas urer was found to be short in his ac counts something over $819,000, and to supply this deficiency the legislature au thorized tne sale of $400,000 of 4 per oent bonds, at not less than 95 cents on the dollar, As the limit 'was fixed at 95 cents buyers demanded them at that price, but the governor and treasurer did not consider it for tho state's best interest to sell its bonds at a discount, and none of thorn wore, sold, but a small loan was negotiated for a short time which cost the statu only $500 interest, which amount, principal and intercut ; was paid out of tho rocoipts of 1890, und in 18U1 $156,000,. including interest, of 5 per cent bonds wcto called in and puid off. During the bionnial term' of 1890 and 1891 other extraordinary expendi turos were required and made, includ ing the erection of the two v. iugs of the state lunatic asylum for colored pa tients amounting to more than $60, 000, and the expenses incurred by the const! tutional convention held in the year 1890.' Governor Stone, in hisjnessage to the Jegislatnre. An JainaTTf 169X .shoivi that thfl receipts at the state treasury for the years 1890 and 1891 were $186, 460 in ' excess of disbursements, ' although the tax levy was only three and a half mills on the dollar's worth of property It thus appears that up to 1893, whon the legislature was required to put in force the mandates of the constitution of 19 1, notwithstanding the heavy dofl ciency in the treasury, and the extraor dinnry disbursements during thebien nial term, the financial condition of the state was highly satisfactory, and every demand upon the treasury was prompt! met . Prior to 1892 about $400, 000 were paid out of the state treasury for the support of the common schools of the state, but the new constitution requires a school maintained in each school district in every 'county at least four months in each year, to be paid for out of the state treasury, which now amounts to about $925,000 annually. In addition to this vast sum appropriated- for the support of common schools, early in the year 1892 a large portion of the buildings of the state lunatic asylum was destroyed by fire and rebuilt at a cost of $125, 000 The Annotated Code of the laws . of Mississippi, which cost many thousands of dollars, was another item of extraor dinnry expenditure for that term, and to provide for all these, in addition to the ordinary expenses of the govern ment, the tax levy for 1892 aud 1893 was only 5 mills on the dollar. There is also considerable loss to the treasury, arising from the failure to eollect tho poll tax, which, since the adoption of the new constitution, is not compulsory hence the major part of it goes nncol looted. In 1890 about half the counties in the. state paid more cr less for liquor licenses, which amounted to muuv thou sands of dollars, while Th 1894 and 1895 as at the present time, very Ifew coun men, peruups less tnan it dozen, pay any thing into the treasury from that source, It was impossible for this state of things to produce a different result, and Gov. ernor Stone, in his message to the spec ial session of the legislature of 1894, shows that the disbursemsnts for the years lam and 1b8 exceeded the re ceipts $438,501. - These conditions con tinued nntil 1896, notwithstanding Jthe attention of the legislature was called to it each session, and it was urged to make the necessary provision for the current expenses of the government For t ho year 1894 the tax levy was I mills on the dollar, aud for 1895 5 mills, which was insufficient to meet the de mands upon tho treasury ; consequently the receipts continued to fall far below the disbursements. , In his last message to the legislature, in January, 1890, Governor Stone stated that the financial condition of the state was neither satisfactory nor encourag ng and showed that the disbursements for the years 1891 and 1895 exceeded the receipts by $181,785. He carefully and clearly presented the needs of the treas ury, and said: ' 'The credit of the state is a mutter of the utmost importance to the taxpayers, and to maintain it the treasury must be provided with the nec eps-iry moans to meet every legitimate demand. " Yet before the end of. the year 1396 the treasury was bnre and tho warrants on the treasury became an ar tide of merchandise. ' , It seems clear that the financial diffi culties dnring the past - administration did not rise from any want of ability or management on the part , of the fiscal officers of the state government, but solely from the failure of the legislature to make, necessary provision Jjy taxation to meet the various appropriations which it had made itself payable pyt ofj the Biabe u eimury . ... The tax levy for tho years' 4896 and 1897 Was. fixed at. 0 mills oto the dollar, which is higher than that of any previ ous year for many years, except 1894. Briefly stated, this, is the condition that confronted Governor McLaurin when he was inducted Jan. 21, 1896. Soon after he came into office he ap financial way, she will either have to reduce the appropriations npon this score, or device some practicable means of augmenting her revenue. , How this can bo done without imposing too heavy a burden upon the people, will we fear be found a problem hard of solution, The present rate of state taxation, six mills, upon the dollar, is rather bur densome, and nearly equal to ' the amount of the levy oi several counties for current county expenses, and we do not see how the state can very well in crease it, without bringing out a very strong protest from those whe are called npon to bear the direct burden of taxa tion. 1 'The conditions seem to call for the THE MISSISSIPPI SAY CO. tssccwamGSqsoKrtsncMQK .

Lettiug I dare not, wait upon I wonld, like the poor cat in the adage, only makes mat ters worse. The esteemed Natchez Democrat, un der the caption of ' 'Something Must Be Done, ' ' says : ' 'There is now the sum of $150,000 in the state treasnry, paid in by the tax collectors since the 1st of January, but when the January school fund distribu tion is made, and the Iponsion appropri ation of $78,000 is taken ont of it,, very little will be left of this handsome amount, and the state will be in as bad condition financially as she was be fore.

'The question of the erection of a new Capitol building is regarded as one of prime importance admitted to be so by representative people all over the state who have any pride in their grand old commonwealth but the matter of thi state's financial condition certainlyover shadows it to such an extent that Gov ernor McLaurin should as soon as possi ble convene the legislature in extra ses sion to give it attention, even to the ex clusion of the state capitol proposition. Tho settlements now being made by the tax collectors of the several counties of the state will help to tide affairs over, but the results will be only temporary, three mouths hence the public treasury will be as bare as was 'Mother Hub hard's' proverbial cupboard, when she went to get her poor dog a bone. Tho necessity, for immediate action in this matter is not only great and apparent, but the results may be disastrous to the credit and integrity of the state if there is any undue delay.

On one of the cross streets of quaint old Burdstown, Ky . , stands a two-story, weatherboarded loir house, which has a strange history . When Louis Phillippe, the unfortunate Bourbon King, was driven from the throne in France he fled over the seas - and mountains to Bardstown. He was hospitably re ceived and was given a position in the then flourishing St. Joseph's College by BiBhop Floret as instructor Id the French laa&aase. Durin? his atay-in the fewn he boarded at the log house, and some of the very old citizens distinctly re member him as sitting on the sidewalk in tho shade of the trees, discussing the events of the day with knots of other foreigners, of which there were many in the town in those days. Louis never forgot the friendship of the good" Bishop Flaget, and on his return to power and his native land he presented the church of St. Joseph's with many rare and valuable gifts, among them being the boll and clock which are in its cupelo and proclaim tho hour to the drowsy villago. But his most magnificent do nation was the splendid altar piece, The Crucifixion, ' ' painted by Van Bri, the celebrated artist of Antwerp, Belgium . This famous painting iB twenty one feet in height and twelve feet wide, and is valued at $100, 000. It was Louis Phillippe who, yoars after leaving Burdstown, in conversation with Daniel Webster, dubbed the village the Athens of the West, ' ' a title which clings to it, to some exteut to this day. ' 'In Mississippi they farm out the con victs on an eight thousand acre farm and the process has proved a profitable one, the state nutting $40,X)00 last year in the operation. . This manner of ma king the conviots earn their living and something to boot has aroused the pro fessional farmer, who are opposing this sensible plan on the ground that it creates nnjust competition with hon est; farmers- The alternative pf tax ing the farmers to support the convicts in idleness would not be relished by the sensible farmers of Mississippi or any other state, The professional dema gogues of that state advocate shifting convict competition to some other in dustry than farming, and it will be in teresting to watch what the Mississippi Legislature will do about it. Philadel phia Times , j - v ' i- ' " If there Is a' word of trtj th' In the above, after the first line, the Clarion -Ledger fails to find it. tit is true Mississippi does ' 'farm out the convicts', ' ' but it is a dozen or more farms . containing about 20,000 acres, the major portion of it being lands that rival in productive ness those famed as the ' 'valley of the Nile, ' ' and the net profits last year were $15, 000 greater than stated by the Times. The idea that any one should try to create the impression that the farmers of Mississippi are jealous of the work being done by theoonvlctsand that thoy are looked upi n in the light of business rivals is so porfectly ridiculous as to be unwoithy of notice. Not even the pro fessional doinagogue is. agitating shift ing convict competition to. some other industry than farming fpr the very good and sufficient reason that no competition is being experienced. What dlft'orenoe to the Mississippi farmer does it make if the State does raise a few thousand bales of cotton? The convicts cannot possi bly produce enough cotton to glut the market or control the price in one way or another, aud not one single protest has ever beeu heard against cotton ra'.s ing by prison labor. The Times is most assuredly welcome to all the fun and interest that is to be derived from watching ' 'what the Miss issippi Legislature will do about it, " In the course of time this State may pnrchase another farm or two so doligh- ted are we witii tha present humane and profitable system o' dealing with the 4 nnrVt"., Clsrbll Ledger.' ! Development of Lands. Last week I spoke of the advantage of good, roads. I wish now to discnts briefly the improvement of the country from another standpoint. When farm ers have markets for their produce and roads to get to market, the next ques tion that presents itself is, 'How can I make more to sell? This calls for more energy, more skill. The energy, will not be lacking with men who have any ambition, but the skill may be and of ten is, lacking. Let it not be under stood that I am one of those men whose only knowledge of farms and farming comes from farming done on paper, for I got my introduction to life, as well as my full maturity on a farm. But to the question. n is evident to. any observant man that the lands iu cultivation in this country do not. yield what they might and wonld if thoy were brought to the state of fortility and cultivation of which they are capable. I have taken some pains to inquire into the results of a process of fertilizing in the reach of overy farmer. ' At Starkville I was informed by an Englishman who had taken great inter est in observing the methods and results of the experiment station, that a field of one hundred acres, which fourteen years ago was so poor that it' was thought scarce Worth cultivating last year, by actual weight, produced one nul"(i-ss"pp.Ipf jorn to the acre. TICTuSJvM? of fertilizing' wos simply by sowing peas and plowing 'under th- vines at the proper time. Some, may object that that method will not suit this or that land. Granted. The same shado and pattern of dress may not suit two women of diverse build and com plexions, still I have no doubt that th-'s same process would greatly enhance the yield of any land. . If this is not best some other fertilizer could be found that would do by trying different things on small scale. Bnt fertilizers do not constitute the only thing that needs to be looked after not even the most necessary thing in many, porhaps, the majority of in stances in this country. I have not seen a farm that I can recall, but needs better cultiuation . The hills are allowed to wash, and the bottoms to overflow ; ditches are either not made at all, or insufficient. Often both cotton and corn are half choked out by grass and weeds. Intensive farming is the de mand. As a rule men try to cultivate too much land. Any farmer with a wife and one child and an even start sould live handsomely on an average farm of twenty-five acres. This coun try can and ought to support a hundred fold the population it has to-day . The Telectroscope. When Dagnerre stood before his mir ror one morning to make his toilet and asked himself "Why may not that image of myself be held there?" he lit tle dreamed that he was moulding A thought thnt would revolutionize the world in art. At first it took so long to fasten the image that people were weary of the posture when it was done. -Nofr the picture of a car-wheel going thirty miles an hour might be taken by a Aur) of lightning, and the wheel appear to haveboen standing still But what ii such an accomplishment when 'com pared with the foat performed in tht telectroscope ?
