Money, and for that reason we will give our support to Mr. Money so long as the two are the only candidates. Gov. Longino is a good politician and will make an active canvass for the coveted honor of representing Mississippi in the Senate. Pitted a gainst him is one of the finest and the best politicains in the State, a man who has no superior as an organizer. So the race for United States Senator is not going to be a dull one. The announcement of the Governor was no surprise, for it had been ex pected for several weeks Herald. yet seen, and the Rummer girl attired in some dainty, delicate and airy sun witn one of the season's attrac tive turbans, or fanny straws, par tially covering her golden curls or raven locks, will cause a sigh from the heart of many a young man and a wish that she wsa his. This year Mrs. Tuttle and Miss Sheltou decided not to issue invita tions to their opening, as last year many of them were not roooived, and they have asked The Times to state that every lady in and out of the oity are cordially invited to attend their opennig and inspect their styles and they hope to see them during one of these days.

At a few minutes past seven o'clock ou laBt Thursday morning, the sad an nouncement came from the home "f r J.M.Lee, the city ,tax collector' that the lift' of his devoted and lovlnit wife had patted from earth to the great b?yond. The news of her death canted a gloom of Badness in her large circle of friends, though her demise had tteen expected. For several weeks all that a devoted husband and loving brother and true fnendt could do to relieve lici snnVrines and nurse: her back to health was do e' but it availed nothing. Th" Mineral sen-ices were held at the house Rev Dr Primrose conducting the last sad rites in the presence of the family nnd large circ'uof friends.

Each girl received a single garter . The bride was deep in ar rangements before the wedding when one of a popular superstition in her, Yazoo City one of the Danish servants, told her of her native laud. The maid said the very essence of good luck.both for bride and bridesmaid, might be accom nlished, by the bride giving the left garter to her attendant after the wed ding ceremony.

Thomas & rtose, Attorneys. THE CITY COUNCIL Held Sessions Tuesday and Wednes day Nights This Week. The council met on last Tuesady night to consider the granting of the gas franchise, The franchise, with the alterations as suggested by the councilmen at the last meeting was read by the proposed gas company's attorney, Mr. Percy Bell. After the reading Councilman Blum held that the company should be made to give a bond in the sum of 152,000 to comply with franchise; that he considered the franchise worth something. This Mr. Bell held to be unjust, as they had a right to grant other gas companies a franchise and if they started that what they had would pay city for franchise if they failed to carry out conditions of fran chise or complete it. Councilman Wilczinskl thought street paving. In response th the request of the City council contained Id the ordinance above, the president of the Young Men's Business League has named as the committee to 'act with the city conncll the following gentlemen: c Chas.

Mr. Taylor con curred iu the contention and quite a discussion followed, some holding that the rate should he based ou the price of coal, and others that it should be lift free for the council then in power to decide. Mr. Bell aUo objected to this but seemed willing to amend his franchise so as to give council the right to regulate the rate every ten years, to le based ou the price of coal then and no ,v. He read letters giving the price of gas at several cities in the state, conditions being the same as in Greenville, where the price of gas was the same rate as he asked in his franchise. While the matter Was under discus sion and just as Mr. Watt moved that the franchise be granted, Mr. Tilford came lu nnd asked that it be read again so thnt he would know what he was voting ou.

Another week of anxiety over the river situation has passed The great stream Is still confined within Its strong banks of earth and no where In this district today Is there any sign of danger reported or break imminent. The mighty river continues to rise at the rate of from 4 to 6 Inches a day, but the levees ehow no sign of weakening anywhere and where low they are be ing built up with sacks of earth. It will be Monday or Tuesday before the river will become stationary at t bri s point, and judging from points above.the water will fall slowly, and If the equlnoxlal storms, which start today, cause the swollen stream to beat against the levees It will take work to keep the water out. This though, we hope will not be the case and the same weather continue as we are now experiencing, Still the peo ple should be on the watch and be pre pared for the worst. From the rise of the water today with gauge standing at 48, It looks like it will reach at least -49 before the water becomes stationary, unless break oc, curs. The levee at Huntington la now built up and will hold back all tbe water In sight, so no danger is now looked for from this point which a week ago was considered one of the weakest, Leland, Ark., levee was threatened with danger Thursday from caving, but Capt. E. C, Tolltnger, by engineer ing skill, has stopped this danger, and it is thought now that unless some ac cident happens it will hold to- the end. From the bulletin received at 12 to day the report from above is favorable and the river la falling at Memphis, which should cause pur river to come to a stand tomorrow or Monday. j ' The session of th chancery court Will con tinu nnlll Wednesday or Thnredey of aes week, . .

What promises to he the dramatic treat of the season will be the ap pearance here of Miss Eleanor Robsou as Audrey, the heroine of Mary John ston's famous novel by that name. Audrey w ill be presented at the Grand Oiera house on Friday, March 27th, exactly as seen in New York. Theatre-goers who have not made the acquaintance, profe-fsionaUy, of this charming actress, are very certain to be delighted with her performance. In stage form, the story is divided into six tableaux, the first being the May Day festivities at Jamestown, when Audrey engages in the famous foot nice, and comes off vitcorious. Tlie next scene is located at Fair View Glebe House, where Haward comes to visit Audrey. The third tableaux is the ball room at the gov ernor's mansion. In this scene Audrey comes decked out in flue clothes and is ocrtied by all. The next scene is the interior of Brurou Church, iu which the denunciation of Audrey cc cuis. The list tt i g is Col.

The Grand Lodge of Odd Fellows will convene in this city on 8th, 9th ahd 10th of May, .and .the local lodge is preparing to give the delegates a grand reception. During the last two months the lodge here has nearly doubled its membership and the inter est in 4he work lias not in anyway lost any of its power, for at the last meet ing Grand Warden Menger, of Vioks burg, was present and addressed them and six or'more were ushered through the mysteries of the order and several new applciations balloted on. The Odd Fellows of the state are a strong and growing order and among them are enrolled some of the state's best and most promising citizens. From-the information received here by the local lodge a large attendance is expected which will be increased by the army of candidates announced for state offices, who are all seeking to know the mysterious workings of each Odd Fellows mind as to his position towards him for the office to which he aspires. SWEET CLOVER. There is no more charming adjunct to a good play than rich and appro priate costuming, and Pauline Phelps and Marion Short's beautiful comedy drama, "Sweet Clover," fortunately admits of the most elaborate costum ing, and a glimpse of the toiletttes worn by the lsdies of the company are alone well worth the price of ad mission from a feminine standpoint. The scene of the second act is laid iu the interior of Mrs. Emmett's New York home during the progress of a tableaux party. Romeo, Rosalind, Carmen, Priscilla, Qcenu Guinevere iu her gorgeous robes, and other his torical personages are there, and the silts, satins, laces and jewels voiu are long remembered. Iu the third act which occurs in tin drawing room of the Grosveuor mansion an opportunity is afforded the ladies to display the latest creations of the famous Parisian modistes and gowns by Felix, Archambairlt and others, which are at once the envy and admiration of all the ladies presen.t Sweet Clover will appear at the Grand April 10th.

EVERMAN & STONE. Washington, Mar. 18. The special sesssion of the senate is drawing rap idly to a close. , The leaders of both parties have agreed to vote on the Co lumbian tretay and a vote of the Cu ban treaty will follow as soon m practicable. That both convention will be ratified is the belief of ail well informed senators. The Demo- crarss. will, it is understood, vote unanimously for two amendment to the Panama canal treaty, one provid ing that the United States shall exer cise absolute sovereignty over the strip of land through which the canal will pass, the other eliminating that ar ticle of the treaty which says that under no circumstances will the Unit ed States Increase its territory at the expense . or. Columbia or any other South American republic It bas been decided by . the republican steering committee to reject both of these amendments and it 1b understood that the Democrats ' will permit the ap proval of the treaty even though their amendments fail. . A material consession has been . made to the Democrats and the Be- pnbliean enemies of tbe Cuban treaty by the determination' to accept an amendment, already reported by , the ' committee . on Fo.eign Eelations, Which provides that the provision of . the treaty shall not go into effect un til they are approved by both houses of congress.'. This, of course, prevents actual reciprocity with Cuba nntil after oongres meets next winter. ' The amendment to the Cuban treaty above referred to waa the oc- oasion of muoh disappointment to the president and he is serionsly oontem- latlng calling an extra session of oon gres to meet some time in the fall to pass such legislation as will be neces sary to pot the treaty into effect. The five women immigrant, inspec tors, who were appointed at the be- best of the Women's Christian Tem perance Union, have not thus far proved a success, and the civil service commission has been instructed not to examine any more candidates for (he positions. ; It was maintained that by ' having incoming vessels inspected by moral yonng women tbe importation of girls for immoral purposes could be stopped, that class usually coming first pr second olasa instead of in the sieerage which would have subjected them to the usual inspection to which immigrants are subjected. With some difficulty the civil service commission secured the services' of 'five yonng ' women whose qualifications extended from an ability to scale the high Bidet ot-'the ocean liners to speaking several foreign languages. After thirty days service it has been ascertained that : the young women coming to this country resent being singled out by the women inspectors, regarding the letter's examination as indicating that they are suspicions characters, etc. The experiment will be contin ued for ninety days but with little prospect of snccess.
