NCPOTISM. Mr. Ilitrgins, the recent Ap- poiutmeut Clerk of the Treasury Department, is preparing a book of interest to the whole country. It shows how much nepotism there was displayed by certaiu Republicans. In his labors Mr. Iliggins has the approbation of President Cleveland, who by his refusal to appoint a brother of Senator Blackburn to a lucrative office, clearly and with emphasis rebuked this spirit ot nepotism. A BECOED OF NEPOTISM. A Times-Democrat special says the record dates back to 1831, when those burning statesmen, Jas. G. Blaine, J no. A. Logan, Vm. French, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, and others of like kidney, were holding the reins; and it is instructive to note the Success with which they boomed the cause of civil service reform, the same to which they now are so hysterically devoted. Take the case of the magnetic one, for example. Here is the list. A partial list of tho Blaine connec tion, showing how they were placed by the frugal baud of the patriarch : Jas. O., Secretary of lot of kiufolks scattered about on government salary. Of course. Mr. Iliggius is getting himself thoroughly disliked by showing on these thtugs. Thoi President has ulautcd himself squarely on civil service reform, the esteemed mugwumps above mentioned are patronizing him with their approval. What makes them writhe iu agony uutil they absolutely lose their elegaut man ners is to find that Mr. Iliggins is leaving mighty little grouud for civil service reform to stand upon.

A nephew in the Census Bureau, a lieutenant of muriucs, aud a job tisaus he is preparing, and the record of nepotism now nearly ready to go to press, it begins to appear that what the mugwumps, Iudepeudeuts, tc, have most to dread is a strict application of the Presidents policy. The trouble is that the mugwumps' interpretation of civil service reform is to keep all Republicans in, whereus Mr. Iliggins' construction of the theory is that the rascals and imposters must be turned out. Hence these tears. The Democracy, however, have expressed themselves pretty plainly as not being in sympathy with the mugwumps, aud the fact that Mr. Iliggins is incurring cen sure and villitlcation from such quarters is tho best possible evi dunce of his efficiency. Jlcxlcaa Progress. Minister Romero thus describes tho progress that is being made iu public sentimeut in Mexico touch lug the friendly feeliug of tho peo pie of that country toward the United States : "It has been true, aud to a limited extent is yet true, that the masses of my people are prejudiced against the people of the United States. They once la bored under tho impression that any eucouragemont of friendly ro latious with this country would result in an abridgement of their liberty, for it will take many more years to blot out tho memory of Geu. Taylor. They were fearful of conquest and resultant annexa tion. But the railroads are rapid ly chancint all this. The masses are learning that the American people only want their trade, not their territory, and almost a com plete revolution in sentimeut has taken place. This business of railroading Is yot a novelty to our people, and there ought to be some charity exercised if we have not yet adjusted our own laws, our traditions, and our prciljudiecs to the new order of things. The time has almost arrived when Mexico and the United States may clasp hands over a commerce that will have no equal ou the earth." "Traveling Expenses ct cct." Special to the Picayitnc. Vicksburg, Miss., May 31. Late Commissioner General Morcheod, of tho World's Cotton Centennial and Industrial Exposition of Xcw Orleans, was in the city the early part of this week aud issued a call for a meeting of the Executive Committee of the National Cotton Planters' Association (with which the Exposition originated) to meet iu this city, on Thursday last, for tho purpose, it is now reliably re ported, of indorsing andrecom mending the payment of an account due him by )he management of the Worlif s Exposition, amounting to some (0000. Ho failed to securo a quorum, hence the purpose was notaccom nlished. Of this account it is claimed, $1200 is due T. P. Grasty Secretary, and $500 to W. W. Al lien, assistant, the remainder is due Col. Morchead ou personal and other expenses incurred in Wash ingtou iu securing Government support, in traveling expenses, etc. Col. Morehoad Is now in 'ew Orleans eudoavoring, it is stated, to have tho account paid by tho Exposition management. A Doubtful rremlum. Senator Edmunds says, in a let ter addrcssod to an Indian grail n ato of tho Carlisle school ''I shall be glad at the next session to do anything iu my power to make a general provision that any Indian who choses voluntarily and iu some formal way to renounce alle giance to his tribe and asserts his desire to become a citizen of the United States, with all its rights aud responsibilities, may do so." My sou, if you would bo an editor let your paper be an organ. It saves no end ot worry and thought to write for an organ. You are never at a loss, bow to treat any vexed question which comes up. It is much easier to look npon one side thau upon both sides, and over so much easier to have yonr way marked out for yon than to be obliged to think it ont yourself. Uostuu Transcript. Natchez Democrat. A change from tho all cotton ! system of, farming to a diversified course, by which the fanner can gA the cash for his products from month to mouth, aud which will put aud end to the present unsat isfactory aud ruinous system of depending on advances of the merchant for the entire supply of the farmer for food, has been long advocated through the columns of this paper. To show that iu other sections of tho South a change is going ou, we quote the following from the Nashville Union : Presideul Thomas had not been on the top of Missionary Ridge since the spring of 1883 uutil yes terday. Ho went to the codar that yet marks where Gen. Bride had his headquarters and the peach tree where Geu Grant was quartered. Within ight of the latter point one can now toe farms ou 'which a million and a half pounds of strawberries aro now being gathered from laud that is worth from $1j0 to $'-00 an acre that a few years ago could not be sold for more than $5 or $10 an acre. Iu theso fields 5,000 pickers sro engaged every bright day picking berries and each receives about a dollar a day for his work. This land was covered with un derbrush only three or four years ago and is now ouo vast orchard aud vineyard, drawing thousands of dollars from tho East. "Let us figure a little on it," said President Thomas. There were three car loads of berries shipped from Chattanooga east over our road yesterday; there aro about 400 crates loaded iu each car, aud there are twenty-four quarts or six gallons lo each crate. The laud that these strawberries aro raised on was never cultivated until a few years Hgo, when farm ers from Indiana, Illinois and Ohio came there, bought the land for about $ an acre aud turned it into strawberry patches, peach orch ards aud vineyards. Now as soon as they finish picking tho straw berries the pcachea commence to ripen and they gather tho crop, When the peach season Is over the grapes como ou, and they have another valuablo crop to gather." It is a foregone conclusion thnt tho railroad from this city to Jack son will soon bo extended and made a standard gango road, mi that within a very short time frui can be leaded ou a car in Natchez and delivered without a break any of the markets of tho United States. With this prospect view, now is the time to prepare for using the advantages which quick transportation will give the farmers, orchnrdists, small frui growers, truck fanners and those of all the varied industries of agri culture. Tho same paper, tho Nashville Union, instances a Mr. Bennett, a farmer who owns 01 acres ot laud ou Missionary Ridge who will grow iu tho shape of strawberries, quinces and poaches, a crop that will sell for $15,000, orau average of about $100 tin uci o.

It presented un assemblage of pro ducts of the soils and mines of the South and of the country, such as had never befjre been gathered together, and its display and utili zation of electricity for illiimiiiii Hon and other economic purposes was grand. Iu these respects it was pre-eminent, and to record such an achievement is but sim ple justice. If there were mistakes mado by the management or if there were defects in their work, it is not our purpose to discuss tnein here. Mistakes, tinder all the circum stances, were to be expected, aud the work done must stand on its merits. That it was a financial "failuro goes without sating, but it did not destroy its merits as an Exposition; but that it was such a failure must ever be a matter for regret to the peoplo of New Orleans. Unfortu nately for its success, it was too far from tho great centres of pop ulation and the thickly settled re gions of the Union to give it con stant attendance of the largo num ber of people necessary to con tribute a fund for its support. Without going into details, tho Exposition bus cost from a stock stand-point something like '-v""UO,. 000 more than it was able to earn, and to have mado up this largo sum would have required the at teiHlunce each day for the ISO days of tho six mouths of the Exposi tion, of about L'8,000 people, each oue contributing a fee tf SO cents ut the gate or paying iu a daily ng gregato of $11,000. There wero so very few drtys during the continn anco of the Exposition when there was any such atteudanco that any prospect of raising so largo an amount of money from gate fees mtiBt seem entirely hopeless. possiplo cotton crop, but it will also give the farmer tho opportu nity to live at home and keep him out of the hands of the advancing merchant. The class of small farmers who have settled up Missionary Rid go and so many other portions of Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia, will certainly follow the railroads and settle iu other localities. They will come into our country and reap the rich harvests that are neglected by those who now neglect the opportunity, and when a few of these enterprising aud in dustrious men have shown that competence and fortune is the re sult of this kind of small farming, they will be followed by those who now have the opportunity of leading off in this profitable class of agriculture Every railroad that has through connections finds it to its interest to encourage the settling of the country through which it passes by this class of farmers, from the fact that shipments of fruit, ber ries, grapes, am) the product of track farme? is more remunerative thau that ot cotton and what are called staple crops. To a country which is so favorable for this spe cies of farming it is therefore pretty certain that men will be in duced to come, aud if tho present residents will not avail themselves of the advantages they have with in their bower, they may rest as sured that others will come in and rrnp the rich hnrrpst thnt I'e latent within tho fertile bosom of our soil. A R01IUIE. . Halifax, N. 8., May 27.-Tho Herald, this morning publishes some details of the romntie curcer of Adele tho duughtes of Victor Hugo. The facts uro furnished by Robert Mutton, Queen's counsel a well known criminal lawyer, who acted for her professionally on several occasions. Adelc's story as told by herself, is as follows : When a mero girl living with her parents in Brussels, sho became acquainted with a young man, one Pinaen, belonging to a wealthy fain ily then staying in Brussels, nnd fell madly iu lovo with him. He appeared to bo equally infatuated with her. They became formally engaged, aud wero secretly mar ried, as sho believed. Owing to the opposition of the family the af fair was kept private, and ho promised to make her his wife publicly iu due time. Meanwhile he was gazetted lieutenant in the British army and ordered to Hali fax. Just previous to this he wrote to bcr to moot him in Lon don, where they would be formally marriod, but before she reached there Piuson had started with his regiment for Halifax. She return ed to Brussels and shortly after ward clandestinely left home, re solved to follow tho man sho loved so mildly. Arriving in New York sho made her way to Halifax and lived there for nearly three years, rinson proved recreant, but sho seems to have followed him day and night, and frequently declared to the family with whom sho boarded that he should never mar ry another woman while she lived She was eccentric, and never went out unless deeply veiled. At night sho went out alone in disguise. wearing a high hat, top boots and carrying a cane. Piusen repudiated any knowlege of, or connection with, Adele lingo, and had not been here long before ho became engaged to a daughter of J. W. Johnston, then Premier of Nova Scotia. This coming to Adelc's cars sho confided tier history in professional confidence to Mr. Matton, and that gentleman sent a letter to the Johnson family, and they immediately broke off all sod el intercourse with Pinsen. Lieut, Pinsen left Halifax with his rcgi ment for Barbadoes and Adele lol lowed him. Some years ago she became iusauo, nnd was placed in a private asylum, either in New York or Boston. The fate ot the man who betrayed her is un known. almost rcachiur' the fk'iirea of the largest crop they ever raised. The world looked on wondering what uew revolution in tho beet sugar industry hnd arisen that enabled the fanners of Europe to bankrupt the rich cane countries iu other portions of the globe. A commission of experts was sent over to Germany by the Uni ted States government to investi gate the alleged great improve ments iu modern science and mechanism that enabled German manufacturers to produce sugar at the startling low price prevail ing. This commission wan practi cally a failure; the manufacturers of the old world were particularly secretive; they would not show the mysteries of their alleged prof itable art, and it was finally be lieved that they could not show any profit in the business. This mpressiou grew to be a convio tion, on the annnunceuieut last fall of several stupendous failures hi tho sugar biiriiness in Austria and of others iu Germany, the chief beet producing country. It was rendered a certainty when later it was stated that the mami factories would be forced greatly to modify their contracts for raw beets for tho ensuing year, and many would mako no contracts lit all during tho planting season, which had formerly been tho rule in the business. Tho great reduction reported in tho crop lately planted was to have been expected as a legiti mate consequence of tho situation. This reduction has been stated to bo as much as 20 per cent, which would mean a probable shortage of 400,000 or 500,000 tons of sugar, or about a million hogsheads. In view of this great deficit, sugar prices have lately been rap idly getting back to a normal con dition, nnd the planters of Louisi ana arc consequently more hopeful than they have been for eishteeii mouths or more. iistimiers will jileafe (tire explicit d!- rectum, of tenet huf time forpuLlicatic of niHeni.-eineiim.

Yes, the English sparrow is a greedy bird, but he is consistent in his greediness and consistency is a jewel, ns everybody knows. He not only eats enough to sustain a good heaithy hen, but he builds a nest big enough for a robin to feel lonesome iu. The English ii,ii;'Mv, !io the Eu.'!ih nation, wants tho earth, and fuels bad enough because he can't have it. Served 111 in Right. A man w as arretted a fev days ago near Austin, Miss., for using one of tho new levees as a road wav, and after trial was sentenced by the judge to pay a fine of $25, and to be confined in the county jail for ninety days. Tho ninety days, however, was afterwards re voked. This is the first caso we have heard of where tho law whs enforced upon any one violating this most important provision of tho levee law. Now as the levee is completed and in good condi tion it is necessary to protect and preserve it. It is well for those who do not regnrd the warning notices of the proper authorities to learn that tho law will be in forced whenever occastioi re quires.
