A Large Excursion Party Left Minneapolis and
St. Paul Yesterday Bound for Thorns
burg, Chilton County.
A home-seekers’ excursion train was
advertised to leave Minneapolis and St.
Paul, Minn., yesterday, and it was un
derstood that quite a large party of peo
ple came south on it.
The rate for tickets was placed very
low, and considerable missionary work
in behalf of the south had been done
among the denizens of that section.
A large portion of those who intended
coming on the train were to join the col
ony of northwesterners at Thornsburg,
in Chilton county, and it is presumed
they will reach that place either tonight
or early in the morning. Already a
thrifty little village has been established
at Thornsburg, which is about midway
between Clanton and Jemison, on the
Louisville and Nashville road, and con
siderable improvements have been made
there. The founders of the colony are
confident that by spring they will have
several hundred, if not thousands, of
progressive northwesterners In that vi
The home-seekers who left Minnesota
yesteaday will probably arrive here some
time this afternoon. It is understood
that the party is quite a large one.
Speaking of home-seekers coming south
brings up the subject of emigration,
which has done so much in past years in
transferring Alabama families to Texas
and the west. So great has been travel
of this character to the west for the past
few years that certain counties and lo
calities in this state had almost com
pletely changed their population, Immi
gration and emigration being about equal.
The railroads, with attractive circulars,
Industriously placed before the people
In the sections through which they tra
versed, describing the b-autles and ad
vantages of the west and telling wonder
ful tales of wealth to be acquired there
In a marvelously short period of time.
These circulars had the desired effect,
and year after year has seen the tide of
travel westward go. But not so this sea
son. While there Is no perceptible in
flux from the west, the outflow has great
ly decreased, and the tide has turned
south and southeastward from the north
Speaking of this fact to a State Her
ald reporter yesterday. Passenger Agent
R. L. Newton of the Alabama Great
Southern road said he had just returned
from Sand mountain, where he had been
to ticket a small party to Texas—the
last, so far as he knew, that were going
west this season. He said emigration
from the Sand mountain district, where
it has been heavy for several years, had
fallen off over BO per cent this fall and
winter, and by spring he expectcj the
decrease to be even greater than that.
He said the Alabama Great Southern
had adopted the rule of trying to induce
people to settle along Its line, instead of
urging them to go west. In this they*
were succeeding admirably, a fact evi
denced by the old farms abandoned In
former years being reclaimed and new
lands being opened to cultivation.

Johnston and Harmony.
Bradford, Dec. 9.—(Special Correspond
ence.)—Everything and everybody in this
section seem to be moving placidly down
the steam of time.
The crops have all been gathered and
the farmers are in a better condition
than for years. The price of cotton has
relieved many burdens from the shoul
ders of the honest sons or toil, many
debts have been paid, and in fact every
one seems to be In good spirits.
The political cauldron has not begun to
■tlr up any strife as yet. The democrats
are for harmony within the ranks, and I
am confident will Indorse Johnston or
any good democrat backed by the people.
Johnston at this time seems to be the
favorite, and we honestly believe that he
will be the next governor of Alabama,
and we see no reason why he should not.
The Bradford academy seems to be on
a boom. The enrollment to date numbers
fifty-eight, so we have been informed.
This school Is under the management of
Prof. W. H. Hutchings, a new man. and
at one time a Jefferson county teacher.
This section of country is by far the
best In Coosa county. We have a clever,
industrious citizenship—a people who are
Interested in educating their children.
We have in our midst the old Bradford
factory, located upon a beautiful creek,
with ample water power for turning
many thousand spindles. The factory
building is of solid masonry and in good
condition, especially the roof and floors.
This building has been closed for eigh
teen or twenty years, and the machinery
stands just as it did on the day upon
•which it was closed. Just at this (time
we wonder why some enterprising cotton
manufacturer has not investigated this
building, for it appears to the writer an
elegant place to start a considerable
work. To an honest man with means
this is a splendid chance for a profita
ble Investment. Bradford is only three
miles from the Columbus and Western
railroad. Our nearest station is Kelly
ton. We have three mails per week.
Should any of your renders desire to
secure a pleasant place in which to live
• nd to educate their children come to
Bradford. Success to the State Herald.
STATE PRESS ECHOES,

Says the Cuba Banner:
“Every democrat should remember
that Capt. Joe Johnston has entered
nearly every canvass In this state for
the past ten or fifteen years and remain
ed in it until victory was assured.speak
ing in the most doubtful counties at his
own expense, while others that should
have taken part stood idly by waiting to
see how 'the cat would Jump.’ If the
democratic party of Alabama owes any
body anything It owes a debt to Joseph
• • •
Says the Tuscumbia North Alabamian:
“Since it has become quite certain that
Captain Johnston will receive the demo
cratic nomination for governor next
year, some of the gold standard organs
are urging a compromise, claiming that
there must be material concessions for
the sake of harmony in the party. We
are willing to concede anything that does
not stultify us, but when It comes to a
repudiation of the ancient democratic
doctrine of bimetallism, or any indorse
ment of the doctrine of a single gold
standard, we shall draw the line. The
latter is unreasonable, unavailable, un
American and undemocratic. A man
makes no compromise when he obligates
himself to support the time-honored
principles of his party, but he compro
mises himself out of the party when he
indorses a doctrine dear to the hearts of
his enemies and one peculiarly their
own." I i
Fishing About Tupelo.
Private John Alien has been trying to
get the president to come to Mississippi,
and by way of bait has been telling him
how they fish in his state. “There's noth
ing pleasanter or easier than the way we
fish In Mississippi,” says Mr. Allen. “We
hire a hand of colored gentlemen, and
they carry a large Jug of whisky to a cool,
shady nook by the river, and we follow
them. VVe sit down In the cool, shady
nook ana watch the Jug, while the col
ored gentlemen cut a cord or two of
brush and bushes. These are for a seine.
When we are ready to begin fishing each
of the colored gentlemen takes a bunch
of the brush In either hand, and, thus
armed, they throw a line of battle out In
to the bayou, or river, or wherever we
chance to be fishing. We sit on the bank
and tell them where to go. When all is
ready the line of battle, with the brush
under water, making a very capital seine,
swings 'round toward the shore in such
a manner as to comb about an acre of
water. We get every fish that is fool
enough to be In that acre. We get alli
gators, mud pouts, snapping turtles and
all sorts of valuable fish. I would like
very much to have the president come
down and enjoy the sport for himself.
So far, however, he has not been able
to Ret a time.” The picture that Mr. Al
len draws Is such an entielnfc one that
there can be only one explanation of the
president’s not having come. He is some
thing of a fisherman, and knows about
fishlmr stories himself.
