He rode his horse soj fast that tbe horse fell and broko his neck. He was then compelled to return to Tchnla, some two mites, when be began to drink, drawing bts pistol and flourishing it about. He then started back of Kellogg's saloon and shot a negro through the head over tbe right eye, the negro dying soon afterwards. McBee, accompanied by his brother, fled to the cane brakes, declaring he would not be taken alive. Th sheriff of Holmes county and four men are in pursuit, but McBee has not been arrested, and it is thought, is making bis way across the Mississippi. Yazoo Sentinel Deputy Will McCntcben passed through here Tuesday nlgbt with one Lonis Fields (colored), who Is charged with burning Mr. .' Wal lace's gin, In the lower part of this county. He had carried him from the jail to appear as a witness against W. II. Gravitt, who had been in some way implicated in the matter. Mr. Gravitt demanded an investigation, and was tried be fore Justice P. S. Long, and wi s honorably discharged as all his friends knew be would be. A crowd of men not well known to Louis took him out and were pre paring to lyucb him. and caused him to make statements that he now says were false that he made them in order to escape with his life. These statements to tbe mob are what implicated Mr. Gravitt. Louis knows the parties who attacked him well enough to give them a little personal atten tion at tbe next term of Circuit Court. It seems that there is no evidence to convict him of tbe burning.

Richmond, Va, Nov. 10. Gen. Robert D.

He was to-day taken to St. Luke's Home, where he now is in s veiy critical condition. MISS., SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20. tS83. Tiawt it Hi. Clattt, f tat tlhmia Ctabat, Ut Bkjt. Mr. J. C. Clarke, of (be Illiuois Central Railroad, has iu a small pamphlet given bis views of the operations of the railroad supervl sion law iu Mississippi, as follows: I. There was no necesity iu Mis sissippi for such a law. The peo pie of alt sections of the State wanted wore railroads to promote and develop their interests, iustead of stopping the buildiug of rail roads. See the unmber of char ters asked for and grunted iu 18S2, and 18-S4 aud ltWu, aud bow few of these have been put to practical ue to tbe present time. The existing law prevents the development of the State iu this way: Capitalists will not iu- vest their 'money: iu the building of railroads to be controlled and supervised by politicians, because they have bad no experience in the maoagemeut of such property, and have no iuterest iu making the investment remunerative. 3. The strict enforcement of the law will , tend to tbe diboourace oieut of manufactures iu the State. 4. The surplus products of the State, both agricultural aud man ufacturing, must find markets be yond the limits of the Stute, and the laws of Mississippi are power less to affect or regulate Interstate traffic The laws of Mississippi are only operative withiu the II in its of the State on tho small vol nine of domestic traffic. 6. Ruilrouds must be permitted to earn money enough to maintain the property and keep it in the best physical oouditlon to strve the public, and to do this they must be allowed such rates as will euublu them to pay the Interest on their capital, after providing for operation expenses. i . 0. The redaction of charges On tbe volume of, domestic traffic transported from point to poiut along the railroads within the State will uecessarily force an iu crease in tbe charges ou the large volume of traffic coming from aud goiug to points beyond tho limits of tho State. 7. It is a fact that not one rail road iu tbe State of Mississippi has ever paid 1 per centum per annum iu dividends to tbe stock holders whoso money and time have boeu given to the construe tion of the ruilrouds uow iu the Stat.'. 8. It Is a fact that nearly every railroad in the Stato has become bankrupt, and many of tbem have gone through the courts into bankruptcy and been sold. The reason for this is thut their earn ing capacity has not been sufficient to produce money enough to pay current expenses nnd provide for the interest charges on their bond ed debt. This is principally owing to the limited Volume of traffic, and the sparsely settled couutry tbry ruu through and if it were not for the through traffic they coutrol, destined for points be yond the limits of tbe State, there is not a single railroad iu the State of Mississippi that conld earn its operating expenses, to sny noth ing ef providing for tho interest eu its bonded debt. C. It is a well known fact that the people in different parts of tbe State have voted taxes npou themselves as subsidies to get railroads built for the convenience and development of the 8 tat e, and in order to enhance the value of their property; and we rluiin that, when intelligent people tax I bum selves voluntarily for. this pur pose, it is the strongest evidence thut they do not believe that rail roads are iuimical to their inter ests, and that they are willing they shall be paid reasonuble rates for services performed. -i . 10. We claim that self interest alone on the part of railroads, if no other motive actuated their management, wonld lend them to foster and develop the resources of the Stute, in order to give their rends increased business. The charge made that railroad man agers seek to destroy one place to build np another is not Worthy of attention or respect from auy well-informed man In the comma nity. Commercial centres have their geographical advantages, and no manipulation can alter or change these natural positions. 11. We assert that railroads have a direct interest in agricul ture, mines, manufactures and all kinds' of industrial enterprises, and that their interest In the de relopment of all these branches of trade an Industry,' so as (o in crease tbe volume of their traffic, will dictate a just policy, without any attempted restrictive legisla tion. v ' ; ' 1-'. XiiC ciauior in favur of con- i trolling by unjust and fuipructiuu. 1 IMES. ble legislation, the property of others, is in the interest of, aud is actuated by, a spirit of com munism ; aud this bus beeu espec ially visited upon railroads, be cause they are a specit-s of prop erty that cannot le moved beyond tbe reach of demagogues aud com munist, und it is thought that the spoliation of the property of cor porate botlies may be attempted itbout calling forth the indigna tion that would be aroused if this were attempted ou other business interests iu the cominuuitr. 13. The claim of right to appoint oue pcrsou to uumuge the lawful business of another, is iu Us es sence communism. Carried to its logical result, it would deprive every citizen of the riht to man age his owu business, aud put him under disability like a minor, iu- stead of recognizing him as a mau capable' of managiui: bis own af fairs. If a basilicas la unlawful, prohibit it ,If it ia lawful, let the owner manage it himself, and thus encourage enterprise aud thrift If it is right for, the majority to nse the government to appoiut guardians over owners of rail roads, why not over merchauts, farmers, doctors, bunkers, print ers, bHrbers, mechanics aud labor erst, The uue rule is to make just aud impartial laws, uud make everyboUy obey them, but uever to put oue inuu over another man's lawful business. If the opposite principle prevail, this commune, alius the majority, will becouie a tyrant, and will tell lis what we shall drink, or cat, or wear, or in what church we shall worship, and what political party we shall support. Is thisdctnociacy t This spirit of communism tiuds direct ly to the destruction of ludivuul liberty uud tho right of private property, and will iu the end, if not checked, crush out all person al energy aud manhood. 14. We believe that the majotity should rule in matters of proper governmental concern ; but not iu permitting the majority to oppress and commit wrong and spoliatiou upon the minority. IS. We affirm that every ludi vidua! under onr system of gov emmcut should be recognized by the law aa a free agent, respousi ble for his actions, and entitled to reap the reward of his energy thrift aud Intelligence wheu en gaged in' lawful pursuits. 10. If the spirit of communism, now ndvocnted by political do ma Rogues, shall be successful in de stroying tho property of corpora tions, the next step will be to make war on private property, ou lauded, niannfactiirliig, ngricultu rat, financial and commercial in tercsts, or whatever pursuits wealth has beeu or can be invest ed in. 17. If wrong has been done the public interests through tho agun cy of unscrupulous and dishonest speculators in railroad properly, make and enforce laws to prohibit tho commission of such wrongs, But we submit to an honest and intelligent people, whether It right to allow time servers nnd professional politicians to inflame the public mind and excite popu lar prejudice against railroad prop erty, in order to serve their per sonalends. 18. For twenty yenrs prior to 188-', there were only about eighty miles of rnilroud built In the Stnte of Mississippi, all uiiirow-gutige road, and constructed almost en tirely by subsidies, which the peo pie raised by voting to tax t lie in solves. ' Under tho wise legislation of 1882, and the liberal charters then granted, more than COO miles of railroad have' been built iu the State, costing over 14,000,000. t This was all done with foreign capital, and tins greatly aided iu developing the different sections, enhancing the value of landed property, and contributing to the establishment of manufacturing interests in different portions of the State. If the samo liberal legislation had beeu continued, it is fair to assume that still more railroads would have been con structed. The legislation ot 1881, whether this was so intended by the projectors of tho law or not, contributed greatly to prevent the building of further railroads, and thus delayed the development of the resources of the State. Wo uow have three truuk lines trav ersing the State north and south. We want more railroads crossing tbe north and south lines In order to accommodate the different por tions of the State.

Origin of Slaullug Reefs. , To find tbe source from which tho European nations have deriv ed the art of building lu stone, we must look to tlio'lund of the 1'hnr oohs. From Egypt the cruft passed to Greece, and from the Greeks it was taken up by tlie Itomaus to be by thnui disseminated through the north snd veil of Europe lu tlie process of colonization. The similnri'y, iu regnrd to the con structive parts of the nncieut Greek building to some of those found In Egypt of older date, it fjords strong confirmation of the tradition that tbe Greeks borrow. ed the art from the Egyptians, The Greeks, however, in adoptiug It added a new feature, the pedi ment, and the reason for this uilth tion is cnty to Qud. Egypt is prac tically rai l si. All the protee tion from the climate required iu a palace or temple in such u coun try is shelter from the sun by day uud from the cold by night, nud for this a Hut roof, supported by walls, or pillars, with architraves, is quite sufficient ; , but, when, as in nil European countries, ruin lias to be taken Into account, a slunling roof becomes a necessity The Greeks, with their eye for symmetry, provided for this by forming tbe roof with a central ridge, at an obiuso angle, from which it sloped down equally on either side. The triangular space thus formed at the end of the building above the architrave was occupied by the pediment, aud this pnrt ot tbe facade, which owed its birth to the exigencies of cllinnte, was thenceforth regarded as so essential to the artistic com pleteness of the work that it was said Hint if a temple, were to be erected iu tho celestial regions, where ruin would not be possible, the pediment could not be omit ted.
