Major Kemp Presented With a Cane by the League On Wednesday Night. To the Domocraoy of Missisisppl : I take this method of announcing that I will be a candidate for the Ulnted States senate for the term commeucnig March 4, 1905. It is a station so exalted as to be worthy of the loftiest ambition, uid at the same time accompanied with such grave responsibilities as to call for perfect consecration to the publio service by the incumbent. I recognize that the duties call for patriotism, not partisanship; breadth, not narrowness; wisdom and conser vative statesmanship that will build up and not tear down the monuments of broa,d republicanism, and of eqnal and exact Justice erected by our con stitution for the guidance and protec tion of all the people without regard to section. During my term as governor I ( have rendered to the people the best service of which I am capable in the endeavor to advance the prosperity ; and glory of the state in every line and department of pnblic interest. As a result of the harmonious and vigor ous adherence by all of the depart ments of tins administration to that most wholesome doctrine of "equal rights to all," railroads, mills fac tories, banks and other business en terprises have sprung up in the state, backed by millions of capital, both foreign and domestic; the assessment of rolls have almost doubled their Valuations during said period, exceed ing by far what has occurred in any other similar period in our history, thus attesting a stable confidence in our resources, the justice and liberal ity of our laws and the integrity of our government ; while a firm and just administration of our criminal laws, meting out through the courts the same exact justice alike to the highest and humblest without regard to rank or wealth, has dethroned the law in the confidence of all classes of society, until mob rule that blot alike on Northern as well as Southern civilization has alSost entirely dis appeared from our borders. It is not, however, for me to pass npon this recDrd of events to prove the progiyst f Maissippi during the three years of my term as governor. simply commend it to your inspection and impartial judgment, and if the humble part played therein meets vour annroval. I offer it now as a pledge and guaranty that if chosen for the senate, I shall continue to give whatever'cf ability and energy I have toward the -advancement of the feder al interests and the peace of my na tive and beloved state, holding un faltering to the high ideals of the old days which crowned the South with glory and fame. The voters of Mississippi are u preme in the matter of making nomi nations for all offices from constable to United States senator. The pri mary election law, which I had the honor to recommend in each biennial message which I submitted to the leg islature, and which became a law by my approval and signature, despite much adverse criticism, puts each elector of the state on au equal foot ing, leaving him free to vote his in dividual sentiments at the polls, and it is to them that I commit my cause in this, my new ambition, feeling that their verdict at the polls will be just, whatever the result may be. And now in conclusion, permit me to say that whether the honor be con ferred upon me or another, I indulge the earnest hope that sectional bitter ness shall cease, and that Mississippi, shaking oft the gloom and misfor tunes of war, may rise resplendent to still greater power, influence and glory in the sisterhood of states, and may heaven bless all her people with ' ' smiling plenty and prosperous days.

The Steamer Delta, of the Vicks bnrg and Memphis Packet Line, was sunk in front of Mayersville on last Saturday night. The steamer had started to back out from the landing when it ran upon a snag and went down to the bottom before those on Imurd realized their dancer. Fortu nately the water was not deep where the boat sank and only part of it went rnder. Men are now at work raising the vessel and it is expected that it will be saved before any serious dam age is done to it. The boat is sadly missed on the river and it is to be hoped it will soon be Heated again. LONGINO IS OUT, BUT There is but little doubt that Messrs.

He thanked the donors for the handsome cane and said he would always cherish it as a to ken of duty well performed. After a few moments' jovial con vo rsation and a light beverage drunk to the health of the major the officers and directors of the League wished the major a hearty "Good night," and one of the most pleasant inci- d ents in the history of the League closed. An effort is being made by a num ber of the politicians of the state to smoke Senator McLairin out on the question of his preference for the gu bernatorial office. The Fox papers and his adherents have siven it out as an open secret that the senator is for Br'er Fox. and called upon to come out ei:,her from ' 'the bench, bar or nlow handle." The attitude of Sen ator McLaurin, however.doesn't seem to worry Major Vardaman to any ap preciable extent. Natchez Bulletin See 6xr Dvdo3os w bxVes SOFT HATS. The Volume of Water Coming Down 'ftJ l Somethiing Enormous. The Misissippi river continued to rise, but the strong banks of earth work are holding the mighty stream within its channel and hastening" i:a passage to the Gnlf.The highest stujg of the river is not looked for until the last of, next week, but the people are preparing themselves for anything that may happen before that time and are ready to flee from points of dan ger at a few hour's warning. At present there are no places in the long line of levees that present any passi ble danger but what are being worked on Dy tnose in charge and the appar ent danger lessened as far as posible. From the outlook today there are strong hopes that the river will begin to fall throughout the entire upper Mississippi Valley and if the Water even rises above the '97 mark the en gineers here feel confident that the improvement done on the levee Since that year will hold the water without a break. The gauge reads this after noon at Cairo, 50.8 at Memphis, 86,8 at New Orleans 18.9, 84 Vicks bnrg, W.9 and at Greenville 44.7 feet. From the line of the water to the top of the levee in front of the city is about ten feet so a '97 water of 47 feet would still leave abont sis feet of levee clear. .

Most invariably people who have, for years, been having trouble to pro cure glasses suitable to their eyes have been laboring under the impression that the principle value of a pair of i eyeglasses or spectacles were in the quality of the matf rial used in their "onstruction. They do not stop to consider that the Only true value Uiat !an be placed on a pair of glasses is cn the perfect and accurate correction of each and every defect existing in ;ach eye, not only in the restoration ,;f vision, but in overcoming all troubles caused by structural defects, i.uch as pains in the back of the head extending down the neck into the boulders or spine, nervousness, dizzi- , :iess, sick stomach, a smarting, hrju--tig sensation', with shooting pains in vhe eyeballs and a drowsy sensation vliile reading or doing close work. . But few people at first thought iecm to appreciate the fact that to btain these results requires the ser vice of a-tborotighly-competent, skill- ' ed and experienced EYESIGHT SPECIALIST AND OPTICIAN.
