Lomax as county superiuteudeut ot education tor a writ enjoining him from contracting with certain book compauies for text books to be used in the public schools of the county. This suit was brought in behalf of the American Book Com pany on the ground that the adoption by the Text Book t'ommitteo under the acts of 1S90 was illegal aud void.

The people of Meridian have heard with delight the news that lioveruor Stone has re-appoiuted Judge Womlf to the Supremo Beuch.

It is an appointment that not ouly gratifies and meets the wishes and iuterests of tho people, hut ouo which reflects great credit upon the Uovoruor. Aud when it is remembered that Juilgo Woods was never a supporter of Governor Stone's, it shows, as has already many times been shown, that Governor Stoue is a inau of such broad views, aud is auimated by so just ami strong a souso of duty that he is always able to rise above all porsouai or political consideratious and to do tho right thing.

A Tupelo mercantile firm rocoived a rich, raro and racy communication, a few days ago, from au Alliance in Pontotoc couuly.

The resolution failed to state what the cotton was worth, so the merchants are at a loss as to how much they are required to pay iu order to satisfy the demand made upon them. In tho lirst place, tho Alliauco resoluted against tho wrong firm, and the morchaut who did buy tho bale of cottou iu qnesllou has been tumble to sell it at any price, still lias It on hand and savs ho will cheerfully sell It back to tho man from whom ho bought it for less than ho paid for it.

Chronicle. WHAT MR. BEKMAX THINKS. Jackson, Miss., May 9. J. II. Bce mau, president of the State Executive Committee of the Alliauce, was here to-day, aud was interviewed by the Commercial's correspondent relative to the political outlook. He says in his opiuiou the Sub-Treasury plau has not lucreased auy iu popularity lately, as some people profess to believe, but ou the contrary he Is satisfied that with the readiug members of the Alli auce it has lost ground. He has trav eled over several counties lately, aud has made a poiut to ask about this measure, aud says there is no question about the lutcllitreut portion of tho Alliance being agaiust it. He. iSceiimu made a speech at Ziou Grove, in Scott county, yesterday to a argo audieuce and ays he convinced most of tho people thai the measure was impracticable aud would uot do. This is the same place where the day ueloro tapt. lluikiU spoke. Mr. Bee limn says he does uot iuteud to engage iu any joint discussion with Buikitt over tho question from the fact that Burkitt Is tho State lecturer of the Alliauce and out of respect for his po sition he docs uot think such a discus sion would be seemly. THE SENATORIAL CONTKJST. "Well, Mr. Ilecnian, tho Alliance of your couuty (scott) has indorsed Barksdalo for tho Seuato. Does that mean that he will carry tho couuty against George?" "Not by a great deal," he replied. "Scott has always been a great Barks dale couuty, but ho cannot deteat George.

B. it would seem that Governor Stouo failed to tostlfy to suit thoso who placed him ou tho wit ness stand. Tho Alliauce organ thus rcspouds to brothers Hubbard aud Swindoll : The Progress feels safe lu saying that two-thirds ot tho Alliauco ot Webster county is for tho ro-elcction of Senator George. As for Major Barksdale, ho is hardly kuowu lu tho couuty, and it will bo Impossible to elect a man for the Legislature from this county who would oppo.e George. Tho farmers of this county know that Senator George has always been their friend, ami they don't propose to turn their hands on hi u for a man who has no claims whatever upon them. As for the Sub-Treasury, the Progress will say further, that three-fourths of tho till zonsof Webster aro bitterly opposed to It. As to tho light "if it takes all the Summer," this will bo maluly marshalled aud rallied by tho President and Secretary, for notrue Allianceman w ho knows the principles of tho order would make such a declaration as Is iu tho above. Brothers Hubbard and Swindoll, under tho positions that you hold and tho coutlilenco Hint the order placed in you when said positions wore tendered io you, you are tho last men in Webster county who should havo proposed this light, which is a violation of tho constitution of tho order. Let the pcoplo first be heard, thou act as they say. This Is Democracy. m t m AX AWKWARD SITl ATlO.f. It has becu recently discovered that tho Tennessee election law was badly messed in the enrolling and uo end of a row Is raised. The following from tho Scimitar exposes tho situation : The burning question of the hour is. how did the word "votiug" creep into tho amended registration Lull By some hook or crook, most probably tho latter, that little word slipped in, making tho law apply lu couuties hay ing "a voting population of 60,000," and thus knocking the whole bottom out of It. Tho explanation offered by most of our esteemed contemporaries is mat ono of tho fair engrossing clerks blun dered. This seems decidedly far fetched. If some important word had been omitted it might readily be con cluded that the error was accidental, but It is not reasonable to suppose that nny employe of tho Legislature would take tho liberty of adding to or altering in ony way the terms of the bill. Tho most sensible theory advauced is that tho fatal word was slyly Insert ed by ono of tho Republican members of tho committee, for tho express pur noo of killimr tho bill. If so the member served his cause well, aud in tho language of the curb, "mado mon keys" of the majority. 1 no mystery is that tho trick was not discovered either by tho Legislature or the Gov ernor. Hut whatever tho reason of tho Blteraliou Iu terms, the fact that the election laws are rendered iuoporativo thereby adds additional force to the deuiaud for au extra session, KKUIsTUICTnC. Of tho effect of the uew suffrage qualifications the Meridian New thus speaks: "Just what effect the qualifications for votiug will have upou the colored vole is at present speculative aud upon thi- result as developed at the polls iu November the rodistiictiug of the State w ill largely depeu I. Should it be found to be politic to throw the twelve counties in the black belt into one district, (Yazoo, Holmes aud the 10 couuties now comprising the Third District.) the population of the other six districts would be composed of 495.52H whites to 541,166 colored, giviug a total of 1,036.693, with a negro majority of only 4o,b40 in the six districts to overcome. This would make six safe white districts aud ouo district haviug a heavy negro majority. The negro majority iu the Third District is uow 127,000." The object contemplated by the News, the making sure of a majority of white voters in six of the seven dis tricts, guarding agaiust the tempta tions of a force bill by reducing the possible spoils to the minimum ; this object will surely be the aim of the Legislature of '92. But by shiftiug couuties it can probably be effected without submerging -more iu the black sea than those already comprising the Third District. U looks now as if the effect of the voting qualifications" will bo all that was claimed by thoso who favored a now Constitutiou and which were doubted or deulcd by those v. ho opposed it. Ei-Frcsldeut Cleveland bets Personal. Bullalo,N. Y , May 11. Tho German young men s association or uutlulo celebrated its fiftieth anniversary here to-uight iu Music Hull. A rc mtirkablu circumstance was tho pres ence of G. A Goorgo aud Dr. Johu Hauustciu, who were respectively president and vicc-presideut of the association half a century ago, aud hold the same offices to-day. Thepriucipul event of the festival was the prcscuce aud speech of Ex-President Cleveland. It was Ins first public appearance here lu almost eight years. He received au ovation. Mr. Cleveland referred to Buffalo's first mayor, Joseph Elliott, who held office iu 1832, aud said that after ull he could scarcely speak as an old resideiitcr of Buffalo, for ho did not remember Elliott. Theu he added : 'I recall disiiuetly, however, the celo- bratiou of the city seml-ceutenniul 50 years alter u aid, ami l was very well acquainted with tho man who was mayor at that time. 1 believe he dabbled a littlo afterward In Stalo aud National politics. At any rate I kuow ho had a Job for four years iu Govern ment employ and theu, like many others in public position, when there can io n chango of administration he lost his place. Ho was accused, I bid told, of tulkiug loo much about the tariff, and was charged with attempt ing to ruin tho country iu sundry aud divers ways. Iu point of fact, how ever, I am couvluccd that, notwith standing all wo hear of civil servlco reform, ho was discharged lor purely partisan reasons and becnuso somo ouo clso wanted his place. Ho did a great deal of hard work, aud was much per plexed aud troubled, but I know that hie greatest trial was his alienation of tunny personal and political friends lu making appointments to office. It was impossible to avoid this, and it will continue to bo Impossible in all cases so long as tho applicant for office aud tho man who is charged with the ro sponsibilily of appointment occupy such entirely different poiuts of obser. vation, aud just so long as public duty may sometimes stand iu the way of personal friendship." KID GLOVES. Courier-Journal. Much more tbau half the kid, so called, is lamb or rat skiu. Doe, buck aud dog skius were in life sheep or calf. Genuine kid comes from Spain, Mexico. South America aud I'aiy. The very best, though, is French, for there the thrifty peasant takes no chances on scar or spot or blemish. He puts master kid iu a coop as soon as he is born, keeps him clean, feeds him fat, aud when bis short lite ends gets about twice as much for the skin as it would otherwise fetch. In tau- niug the hair is taken off with lime, then the skin pelted that is soaked iu clear running water until it Is a sheet of soft, white membrane thin and fine as silk. Next it goes iuto a mixture of salt aud alum, which in some way combines with it and effect ually tans it. Then it is Unwd, cumed, rubbed over a bluut knife edge, aud finally softened by beatiug in a bath ot eggs and tine flour. After that the skius are tacked on a board and col ored by brushiug dye over the upper surface. Great care is taken not to put on enough at one time to soak through and stain the Inside. The best skius are made np In white aud light colors. Blemishes can be couccaled, or at least palliated, by sev eral coats of dye. Next comes the cutting out, which is where the Freucb mostly do excel. A Frenchman will get out of a hundred skins at least a dozen moro pairs of gloves than auy oue else, aud that, too, without skimp ing or in auy way curtailiug the fair proportions of a single pair. First, the skius are faiutly dampened, then rubbed all over with a blunt edged knife aud cut in half. From each side is cut a strip just wido enough for a glove. They are laid face out, shaped accurately oue to auother and a stm glove pattern so firmly pressed upon them that it leaves an outliuo for the scissors to follow. Cutting out the thumb bole is a nice Job. On Us accuracy and shape maluly depend the comfort of the glove. Thumb pieces and gussets are cut from frsgmeuts often of a different akin. It is imperative that all parts match In color aud the thin parts take dye differently to the thick ones. Sewing is done with silk, usually an exact match to the leather. First, the orua moutal stitching goes on the back; theu tho thumb is set lu ; after that the outor scam is sowed ; then tho tingors and gussets. When all are fiulshod, nothing remains but to finish the top, bind the wrist slit, sow on buttons aud provido bultouholcs. For a long time the work was done wholly by baud. Now, the glove sowing machine has doubled tho work woman's effective capacity. Without It half a dozen pairs a day was her utmost stint. With It she fiulshos a dozen with more ease, and for nearly us much money the pair. The perfect glove is Oner than silk. It is softer thau a baby's cheek, elastic as a political platform. Anclcutly master glovers had to sign that their gloves would go in a walnut shell, and showed iu their windows gloves of full size folded iuto the com pass of that small round. It would go hard fo put a pair of twenty-button length lu such space. Ladles of the revolution and thirty yoars after wore gloves that would quite put to shame tho longest opera kids of our time. They wrinkled all over the arm from shoulder to wrist aud wero cut loose enough not to ucod any opening what ever. They camo lu white, buff, pluk, vivid bluo, grass green aud doep royal purple, as well as black and crimson. Altogether they woro a gorgeous spectacle far aud away handsomer than tho stumpy, ouo-butlon affairs that up to twenty years ago were the correct wear for full dress. M. C. Williams. .THE 8I5H56 LEVEE. Last week we gave a short account ofthesiuk iu Eltou levee across the big slough, just above River bayou. From the time it began siukiog last Friday week night, it has been going down ever since. The slut is about 350 feet loug, and up to last Tuesday, when we saw it, had sunk twenty feet at least. Ninety teams have been at work on it ever since it first began disappearing, but as fast as the dirt is piled on In the day time, it goes down that much at night ; so nothing has been gained. The reader cau imagine its immeusity when it sank eight feet the first night. Almost 9.000 cubic yards have goue down. When the dirt first began to disappear, there were cracks iu some places in the side of the levee large enough almost Io hide a horse. It looked like au earthquake had struck it. The most remarkable feature of the whole thing is the manuer in which the grouud adjacent to the base on the land side has bulged up. The levee has sunk right straight down, and the loose foundation on which it has been resting bos bceu forced npward, bear ing trees aud debris of all kinds up with it. It is uow at least fifteen feet high. This soil which ha been forced np is of a very unstable nature. It has a very dark color, aud is composed almost entirely of decayed vegetation which has been forming there for years. The crest of the elevation is cracked everywhere and gives when walked upon. Before the levee began to sink, this grouud was two feet under water and was one of the lowest places in the slough. Tho manner ia which the sinking is measured is as follows: A long pole, secured perpendicularly to two planks nailed crosswise each other, was placed upright lu the levee ; when the dirt went down, this pole went also, and it bos been going down gradually ever since it was placed there. As we made these few notes last Tuesday, the sinking might be stopped by now, and the above might be stale ; but we give them anyhow for what they are worth.

Neb., Bays : "A bombshell has been exploded iu political circles by tho ollicial announcemeut that the ver dict iu tho Boyd-Thayer contest caso was rendered by the Supremo Court without a discussion of tho issues and merits of tho caso by the Judges of the court. Never iu tho proceedings was there a conference held at which Judge Maxwell was permitted to express his views or iutorchaugo views with his colleagues. "Judgo Cobb was out of tho Stato several weeks, aud orval, tho young est mau ou tho beuch, Is tho probable authority of tho opiuiou to which Judge Cobb appeuded bis name after a private consultation In which the oldest justice ou the Supreme beuch was entirely Ignored. "Immediately alter tho opinions were filed Judgo Cobb left tho court room with Gov. Thayer, John L. Web ster mid Judgo Mason. Ho went to the clerk's offico ond ordered the writ issued without tho consent of his asso ciates. When ho had learned that tho writ of ouster bad been surreptitiously issued Judgo Maxwell itiillguautly characterized tho proceediug as be uoath the dignity of a court. Ho cited tho rulo of the court that the defend ant had a right to his motion for a rehearing, aud that iu no cveut could any writ be issued iusulo of forty days, unless by express order ot the court. Norval agrees with Maxwell that the proceediug on the part of the Chief Mistieo was irregular ami in violation of the court, but he did not join with Maxwell for a recall of the writ. "That Boyd's summary takiug off was preconcerted is proved by tho fact that Penitentiary Contractor Mosier was on hand at the Capitol an hour before the decisiou was rendered aud promptly presented himself to sign Thayer's bond. This will constitute tho chief plea iu the appeal to the United States Supreme Court by Boyd." Only Among louutr Convict Camps, Special to Appcal-Avaiaucho Vicksbtirg, Miss., May 6. Railroad Commissioner McLaurin arrived to day from Jacksou, and was iu'er- viowed concerning rumored instances of cruelty to convicts occurring iu tho Yn-oo and Mississippi Delta. Mr. McLauriu said that if such things had rcnlly happened it must have been among county convicts, not those of tho Stato, as such a rigid Bystem ol monthly Inspection was maintained over convict camps thet uo cruelties could occur without detection and punishment. Mr. McLauriu is now en route for convict camps lu the Delta on a tour of inspection, Bepubllcnn In Principle. Appeal-Avalauehe. Col, D. A. Outlaw, lu a speech against tho Sub-Treasury, at Durant, Miss,, sold that all tho precedents quoted by its advocates came from the Republi can party. That is exactly tho view taken by tho Appeal-A valauclio. One cannot escapo tho conclusiou on read ing tho arguments In fnvor of the Sub Treasury that it is a Republican scheme in disguise. Tho Appeal-Avalanche has endeavored to show that it was devised by tho tariff-fed monopolists with tho purpose of increasing the obligations of tho Goverumont so that tho high tariff might bo perpetuated. Col. Outlaw's thoughts aro directly in this linn, and he Is doing tho farmers and tho Democratic party a great service by discussing the subject from this particular standpoint. Gen. West's ablo defense of the Sub Treasury was predicated upon the doclrino of protectionists a doctrlue which is disastrous to the Iuterests of tho farmers especially, it is hoped that other Democratic lcadors will fol low tho example- act by Col. Outlaw aud tako the field, uot ouly iu opposi tion to tho Sub-Treasury, but In defeuse of tho Democratic party, threatened by a rapidly developing factional spirit. Chicot Progress.

It Is not at all funny, wheu It Is stated that it was done in secret, and by vory small per ceutage of the voters, and that after working it up for weeks. Tho Democratic party of this couuty Is overwhelmingly opposed to the Sub-T. and to Col. Barksdalo.

Surviving Prl .oners of Camp Morton: Iu the "Century" Magazlue for April, 1891, is published an article entitled "Cold Cheer in Camp Morton." It is a plain statement of a personal experi euce of a prisoner of war a narrative of facts known to me aud to hundreds of others tljero Incarcerated. The essential charges are that Confederate prisoners in Camp Mortou were cruelly aud inhumanly treated; that Inoffen sive men were shot and killed; that prisouera wore reduced to such straits from hunger that rats aud dogs aud the refuse from the hospital kitchen swill-tubs were eaten; that mauy per ished from insufficient proteeilou troin the rigors ol wluter and lack of suffi cient food. That these charges are true is known to you. I wrote this article as a con tribution to the history of a great civil war, aud In that spirit of fairness which characterizes this great magazluo, the " Century " published it. I believod it was something which tbo historian of the futuro should kuow. Siuoe its publication I have been the object of unjust aud malicious attack.

MUX AB1I0LD, -EXPERT- V letoria, May 8. A large motoor passed over this section last evening, causing considerable coustcruation. It came from tho northest, and was seen or heard of all along tho lino of tho railway from Roscubcrg to Goliad, a distauce of about 120 miles. About the time it reached this viciuity it ex- plodcd with a tremendous report like heavy thuuder or discharge of large camion. As tho sky was perfectly cloudless people Imagined for a brief time that it was a boiler explosion and then it was attributed to au earthquake. Inquiry of the railway telegraph operator hero cllcitod tho Information that it was a meteor and had been seen at different places along tho lino. The brakemon ou a freight train uear Ira, a small statiou twclvo milos west of hero, saw tho moteor plainly and saw it burst. Ho says ho saw one of the fragments, which appeared to be about as largo as his head, strike the earth not more than 100 yards from the railway track. The concussion of the explosion was so great that it momen tarily stopped the progress oftfs train, this fact being noted by all on the train. The conductor thought the engineer had suddonly appliod air braks and ran to tho door to see what was tho matter. A party will go from here to-morrow lu search of the portion of tho moteor that was seen to strike the earth. fiU mil Easy;?, DRALER WATCHES, JEYTELUT, DIAMONDS, BILVEHWAKX, H Much Hecdca Levee. Arkansas City Journal. The importance of building the levee down the Arkansas River from Lake Jefferson to tho mouth of the river be comes apparent to anyoue who will tako the trouble to investigate the matter. It is of interest not only to the people who own land along the lower Arkansas and who have seen this land deprcciato in value because of annual overflows until it is almost worthloss, but it is of interest also to the people who live on this side of the 'Opossum Fork Levee. With the Ar kansas River leveo up to the line of levee from the mouth or Cypress Creek to tho head of the system could be maintained at one-third tho expense that is now required to maintain it. And another thing, our chances for getting a railroad from here to Pendle ton would bo lucreased 100 per cent, A railroad could thou be built without tho risk of being washed away by the annual overflow. Tho poople of Ar kansas city should use every etiort to secure the leveo down the Arkansas. The benefit that It would be to us could not ba overestimated. With Finest Crystal Lenses.
