"From the standpoint of per

I dragged the campaign down to
I me of bitter persecution of the
worthy Governor. Persecution
is not politics; or at best, it is
the very worst and most p< rni
cious species of politics and the
surest way imaginable to make
friends for a man is to set up a
persecution of him. We are free
to confess that wo were rather
opposed to MeLaurin at the start
but the plan of campaign insti
! luted and vigorously pursued
against him has onlisted our
j sympathies in his behalf and we
now' desire (o see him elocted. "
Tho Jackson correspondent of
the Vicksburg Herald met Con
gressman McLain in the capital
city Wednesday, and wrote his
paper the following about him :
Hon. F. A. McLain, congress
man from the sixth district, was
in the city today en route to
Monticello, where he is billed for
an address before the high school.
Mr. McLain has been in congress
Exit a short while, blithe has tak
en high rank, and has given his
district as good representation as
it ne o.i want. He is very enthu
siastic in his advocacy of the

very hopeful of a handsome ap
\ pr.ipriation at an early day. He
was instrumental in securing the
starter and says he is not going

like venturing a prediction as to

Lon of the progress in all lines
that women are making, that the
sex question isoeasing largely to
| bo the paramount issue, and that
the work accomplished is the
fif- | generally conceded test of ability,
we clip the following amusing
incident from tho Woman's Jour
well j to
"Dne great difficulty in ad
vnni ing the woman suffrage
! movement is found in the posi
tion which men assume. They
pretend to believe (and it is mere
pretence, I assure you), that
woman's suffrage means woman's
rule—that is, me absolute de
thronement of the male rule—-a
fallacy fostered not by fact but
by fancy. A California friend
of mine told me this story, as il
lustrative of why the woman suf
frage amendment was voted
down in the house. He said:
"1 was clerking in a vvholesa'e
house, and was private secretary
to the manager. One da • he saiit
I me: 'vvo shall not need \
services after the first. W» have
concluded to put a woman in
your place. '
The young man next found n
position in a local newspaper of
fice as stenographer, and did
very well for a few months. Then
the summons came to report to
the business manager, who said:
I 'We shall not need vour sendees
enter, after the first: the editor has de
| cided that he prefers a woman in
his;>'°ur place.' His next position
! was as cashier in a feed store,
but it was only a few months
when the summons came from
the manager, and ho again heard
the well-known words, 'We shall
not need your services after the
first; we have decided to put a
woman in your place.' After
this, nothing discouraged, he
took service in a restaurant.
Here his duties were arduous,

and his hours long, but fate still
pursued him. One morning the
manager of the establishment
summoned him, and began: 'We
shall not need your services after
— ' but tho young man had fled
murmuring, 'Another woman!'
At present he is painting church
steeples, firm in the failli that
here, at last, he has entered a
field of work where women will
not follow, yet honest enough to
admit that, were it not for tho
women, there would lie few
oiiuicites to paint.
My friend seemed to think that
this was the condition of affairs
the world over. The women
were taking the places of the
men, crowding the men out. 'In
California,' he said, 'we don't
propose to give women a ehunco
to take every state, county, and
municipal office within the gift
of the people."
As an evidence of woman's
ability to succeed in all depart
ments of labor, the above is in
disputable; but as an argument
against giving her the ballot, lest
she encroach upon masculine
preserves, it is illogical,
ueld of labor is enlarged ns the
ranks of laborers are multiplied.
The ablest must win, even as the
* ''fitlbst" of the species survives
by a law of natural selection.

A VISIT TO THE NASHVILLE.
With a large proportion of
Clarksdale it was our pleasure to
visit the gunboat Nashville as
she lay at anchor near Friars
Point last Friday on her return
trip down the river from St.
Louis. Though a small vessel,
the fact that she had seen active
service in Spanish waters, had
been punctured, but not appre
ciably, by Spanish bullets, and
boro the distinction of having
fired the first gun in the naval
combat, gave her an interest that
even a more gallant and more
pretentious cruiser could nothave
inspired. To Michael Mallia, or
"Shorty," the typical Irish sail
or, is accorded the honor of hav
ing given the first "warm" salu
tation to the enemy and from the
Nashville's deck. That "Shorty"
is neither awed by his honors
nor spoiled by his "lionizing' ' is
obvious. The crew of the Nash
ville, with officers, is composed
of about one hundied men. That
she is well equipped for naval
action is evidenced by tho fact
that :he came out of the engage
ment without casualties, save a
dozen or more indentations made
by badly aimed Spanish balls in
her voluminous and altogether
accommodating smoke stack. As
is usual with all that appertains
to Uncle Sam's fighting regalia,
tho officers of the vessel received
tho customary apportionment of
praise and adulation on the part
of the little town which had
eagerly awaited this opportunity
to do them homage, and as she
steamed away down the river at
2:30 o'clock the airAvas gay with
fluttering kerchiefs, and grave
with the regretful adieux, and
more regretful glances of the
bright-eyed damsels who throng
ed the little home returning craft
