Tho Courior-Journal'i Washington
"correspondent glvos this Uollultlcm of
Quay's attitudo lu regard to the Force
bill: "He knows that $1,000,000 from
the niamilacturors to spond lu New
York, Counoctlmit and Indiana lu the
campaign of 182 is worth all the bay
onets that could bo stacked lu the
ttoutb. Ho docan't care anything
about the South, Its Interests or the
negroes f tho Houth, and bo would
not walk across the Sonato chamber to
break the solidity of tho Mouth. As a
matter of fact, be wants tho South to
remain solid for the Democrats. It
helps his parly in the North. Nor
does he care anything abont the politi
cal fortunes of 1'retldenl llnrriaou or
8peaker Heed."
From a purely pnrtlau standpoint
It would probably be better for tho
Democratic party that tno Force bill
should pas. It would not break Dem
ocratic solidity of tho South, though it
might crcato souio disturbance In this
section, and It would create a rc-acliou
against tho Republican party at the
The leading business meu and man
ufacturers of the North arc opposed to
sectional legislation, and it is they
who furnish tho sinews of war for Re
publican campaigns.
Mr. tuay is a practical politician
and his opposition to tho passsgo of
the Force bill is basod entirely ou tho
ground of party expediene)- And
what is inexpedient for the Republi
cs!!!, it wonld seem, should bo Demo
cratic polley.
But it is the bounden duly of the
Democrat to light the infamous measure-
to the death on patriotic grounds.
Such precedent as its enactment cnu
not be allowod, auil ir it is once on uio
statute books, several years mny clspse
before it can be repealed.

Mr. Wortham, tho present iucumbcut,

authority that Mr. Wanamaker is

There has parsed away one of the
landmark of ihU section aud of the
State, fur his history i largely the
history of MiMniippl. Full of years

birih aud early life dates back to our
territorial days. From lis early man
hood be was a promineut figure in all

for a day lu tho open air.
( 'iirrolltou is a iiuiut old sternly town,

to manhood here, and hero ho lived nt
the time of Ids election to the olllco of
State Treasury in 1N75, Biul it is right
to eay that his many friends hero aro
as firm lu tho belief or his integrity as
they wero twenty years ago. Tho liar

Since the railroad was bultt Carroll

health Carrolllou Is unsurpassed. The
people aro all educated, refined and re
ligious. Tho town lias 10iK) inhabi
tants aud Its altitude is inch as to pre
clude nil suspicion of Malarial In

Tho celebrated springs of Mr. II. I).
Shaw, situated about half a mile from
town, arc as cold as ice and as clear is
crystal. Mr. Shaw bus a beautiful
plivre in perfect cultirntinu. Ho has a
nnlitorium equid to auy bathing house
In the North or Kast, and a beautiful
hike In which nro plenty of fish or
every fresh water variety. There Is
not a healthier place Iu the world thnn
M r. Shnw's. The scenery around these
springs is very picturesque, nnd it
paints Us borders upon the sublime
Hugh Hills, renrlng their rugged heads
almost liioiintuiu high. Deep ravlucs
nnd tho silvery sheen of the placid
hike I'oini a picture pleasing to Ihocyc.
Mr. Shaw is a public, spirited citizen
and will give away "0 building spots
to persons who will obligate them
sulyes to erect cottages within a certain
time. He eipects Lis place to become
tho most popular summer resort in tho
Slate, aud bis expectation is well
founded, for it Is healthy, convenient
and accosidblu to tho Delta people.
It seems to your correspondent that
every ninii iu the Valley would hasten
to titko advantage of this generous offer;
Tor the buildliigs would cost but little
aud the owner would thou havo a
very deslrnblo summer homo, situated
within a stone's throw or a delightful
town, nenr to railroad aud right at

Carrollton Is only about 70 milot
