THE POLITICAL OUTLOOK. What Mr. Thompson of Birmingham, Ala., Thinks of Southern Politics. Louisville Courier-Journal. N. F. Thompson of Birmingham, Ala., was in the city a short while yesterday afternoon on his return from a business trip through Pennsylvania in the interest of his city. Mr. Thompson was former ly a resident of this city, and has many friends throughout the state. He is t'.e secretary of the Birmingham Commercial club and tilso secretary of the Alabama Commercial association, composed of all the commercial bodies of the state, as well as the press of Alabama. In addi tion to his duties In both ot these organi zations, he was further selected by tne board of managers who got up the Ala bama building and exhibit at tne Atlanta exposition as their secretary. In these several capacities he has necessarily been brought into very close relations with the progress and development of his state, which he says is just now receiv ing fresh impetus from the Atlanta expo sition. Large numbers of capitalists and pros pectors, he said, have visited Atlanta, and they have given much closer inspec tion of southern resources than perhaps at any time since the war. He is very enthusiastic over southern prospects for (his reason. He thinks immigration to the south will he larger during the com ing year than ever before if properly en couraged by southern cities and by the railroads of the south. During Mr. Thompson’s trip in Penn sylvania he was Invited by the Johns town board of trade to deliver an address before a meeting of the citizens. The Johnstown Democrat speaks of It as one of the largest gatherings ever assem bled in that city, and compliments Mr. Thompson’s address in very flattering terms. He said yesterday that Atlanta, ua., was a most striking illustration of what civic pride and public spirit will do for a city. He painted in glowing colors how that spirit has taken Atlanta from a struggling village at the close of the war, with practically nothing to encour age her people and no natural resources, and made it a great, prosperous and populous city at the present time. "Just prior to the Inauguration of Pres ident Cleveland in 1893,” he said, "1 was preparing an article for one of our Bir mingham papers on the subject of ‘How to Build Up a City,’ and I went to At lanta to Interview some of her promi nent citizens for that article. Among others I went to the Hon. Hoke Smith, secretary of the interior, who was on the eve of his departure for Washington. I found his outer office crowded with peo ple waiting to see him. Elbowing my way to his inner office I sent in my card and asked for an interview. He came to the door, greeted me hurriedly and said: T have two stenographers at work ar ranging matters that must be completed before I leave, and these gentlemen are my clients, most of them, and It will be impossible for me to grant you a mo ment's time.' Having set my heart on that interview I said to him: ‘Mr. Smith, I only wish a few moments’ talk with you about Atlanta, and I believe it will help Atlanta if you will grant it.' In stantly he replied: ’Certainly, then you shall have it. I will always take time to talk or work for Atlanta.’ Now that is the spirit that pervades all classes in At lanta and has made her what she is to day, claiming the attention and admira tion of the world.” Mr. Thompson was asked regarding the political outlook in his state, but said he only preferred to talk on industrial lines. He did say, however, that the sil ver question had split the democratic party open, about as it had In Kentucky, and he thought a similar fate was in store for Alabama. "It is certain to fall Into either popu list or republican hands,” he said, “either of which will seriously retard the Indus trial growth of the state, for I see no way of bringing the free silver and sound money factions together.” Mr. Thompson left on the midnight train for Birmingham.

Miss Jennie Overton of Memphis, Tenn., who Is pleasantly remembered In this city, where she endeared herself to a large circle of friends during her recent visit to the Misses Rogan, is In Nashville, where she is the recipient of many social courtesies. The Nashville American, speaking of her, says: "Miss Jennie Overton, the charming guest of the Misses Wilson, has been the recipient of some of the prettiest affairs of the week and several handsome func tions set for next week will be given In her honor. Miss Overton's belleship and beauty are known throughout Tennessee and Nashville lays a just claim to her, as the home of her distinguished ancestors. Visiting two of Nashville’s belles, there Is a round of gayety for this attractive circle. Tuesday evening Miss Emma Thompson entertained twenty couples In a delightful manner In honor of Miss Overton." Miss Janie Cockrlll entertained Wednesday In honor of Miss Overton and Miss Gibson of New York. This af ternoon Miss Overton will be entertained, and next Tuesday evening Mrs. B. F.

The Montgomery Journal thus com pliments the Huntsville Argus: “The Huntsville Argus takes a sensi ble view of the situation. It Is a warm advocate of Mr. Cleveland’s policy, and yet it is for Johnston for governor—first, for harmony’s sake, and second, because ha is entitled to it.” • • * Who His Opponents Are. The Montgomery Journal finds that the bitterest enemies to the candidacy of Captain Johnston are the Montgomery Advertiser and the Mobile Register, ad ministration partisans and so-called democratic papers, and the GreenvJJle Living Truth and Cherokee Sentinel, popullst-republican-fusion papers: "It is a notable fact that the bitterest opponents of Captain Johnston are the Alongomery Advertiser, the Greenville Living Truth, the Mobile Register and the Cherokee Sentinel, two alleged demo cratic and two populist papers. Captain Johnston is peculiarly fortunate in tho enemies he has made.” • * • The Duty of the Party. Says the Alontgomery Journal: “The duty of the party in Alabama next year is. very plain. It is to nomi nate Johnston and adopt a free 'silver platform. Then there will be a reason able hope of success. Let the party in Alabama follow the example of the de mocracy of Mississippi, the only state carried by the democrats in the Novem ber election, and win. Let the party follow the example of the party in Ken tucky, Maryland. Ohio and other states and it will lose." ■ * * Nominate Johnston by Acclamation. The Gadsden Tribune thinks It would be party policy to nominate Johnston by acclamation: “Would it not be better for the gold standard democrats to say let us nomi nate Johnston by acclamation, and there by be sure of democratic control of the stale, and not search the earth for an other candidate for the nomination and thereby make it doubtful for the nomi nee's election, whoever he may be?’’ • • • Let Factional Strife End. The Canebreak Herald says: "Party harmony seems to be the de sire of the great majority of democrats these days, and they are easting about to find a man who will best unite the fac tions of the party. When he Is found he will be nominated and elected by an old time majority. “At the present writing Capt. Joseph F. Johnston seems to be the most availa ble man for the position. Notwithstand ing the bitter fight even now made against him, he has no words of censure for anyone. He is minding his own af fairs, abusing no one, censuring no one— but on the contrary, acting in every way as becomes a man who desires party peace and harmony. “Contrasted with this attitude, we find the press opposed to him wildly beating the air In a vain attempt to prove him unfit for the nomination, and they are also wildly beating the bushes trying to scare up an opposition candidate, and. In short, doing many things to stir up strife and discord and bring on a bitter fac tional fight within the ranks of the party. Such actions alone show that the oppo sition Is not properly a faction which will promote harmony. “By all means let this factional fight be ended. Put aside the extremist, and let the people get together upon a platform broad and liberal, and without duplicity.” Children Cry for Pitcher’s Castoria. DON’T FORGET the Methodist Bazaar.
