Wild. U. MOItEAU, Editor. BAY ST. LOUIS, MISS., APRIL 29, 1892. Foster lias defeated McEnery in governorship of Louisiana. Rhode Island and Pennsylvania have fallen into the fast growing column of the Cleveland Slates.

Up to April 14th every county that has chosen delegates to the Slate convention in Wiseonsinhas selected men known to be followers of Cleve land. June Ist is fixed as the date for county Democratic meetings to be held throughout the State of Missis sippi to send delegates to the State Convention. The young ladies at the Columbus Industrial Institute and College voted to do without their Sunday dinner, to contribute towards the re lief of the flood sufferers. Senator George’s proposed bill, re quiring the issuing and keeping in circulation of United States treasury notes to the extent of $lO per capita of the population, has been reported on adversely by the committees to which it was referred.

Under the hew law the million or more brick required, will be burned by convicts ‘labor. The statement is made, but it lacks official confirmation, that the State department has reached an agree ment with the Italian authorities on the question of indemnity to,the fam ilies of the Italians lynched at New Orleans, and that 125,000 francos is the sum which Mr, Blaine has pro mised. The citizens of Pass Christion are slitrring themselves and doing all in their power to assist Editor May in arranging matters for the Press As sociation, which meets there on the 11th, inst. A good time for the pen cil pushers is promised as the pro gramme, published in another col umn, will indicate. At Sioux City, la., the saloon men who have been driven cut of business by the strict enforcement of the pro hition law, have effected an organi zation, employed three lawyers, and will endeavor to slop all business on Sunday. They will not allow street cars to run, newspapers to be sold or kind of business to be done. The rumor that Judge Gresham would accept the nomination of the Third party, for President, sounds very much like a spring snake story. Gresham dislikes Harrison very much and would probably enjoy his defeat as much as any man in the country, but he would hardly be willing to sacrifice himself to bring about that defeat. Mrs. John M. Stone and Mrs. James W. Lea, of the Board of Lady Managers of the Columbian Exposi tion, notifies the women of Mississip pi that an effort is being made to have them raie a “World’s Pair Fund.” Any one interested in the matter can obtain full particulars by addressing the secretary of the Col umbian Club, 300 1-2 Capital street, Jackson Miss.

A sub-maiinc boat has been built at De troit, which is said to be a success. Why not use it to ascertain the drift of the un dercurrents of politics? An evangelist who styled himself as Christ was so badly handled by the young men of Shubnta f Miss., recently, that he was forced to seek safety in flight. Melissa Watson, colored, age 115 years died in Panola county. She was, no doubt, the ol test inhabitant of that coun ty and was mother of 25 children. The first screw press for pressing cot ton was made for Mr. Wm. Dunbar, near- Natchez, in 1801, and cost SI,OOO. lie was the first man to make oil from cot ton.

The saucer and spoon have no doubt been under water over 85 years. OUR SPORTING GOSSIP. nv will-o’tiie-wisp. Jackson and Slaviu, who in the days gone l>y in Australia boxed together and who have a pretty good idea of each other as clever fellows with the gloves, will try conclusions in England at an early day... Both are hard at work and sanguine of success. Slayin broke off with Mitchell and sent to New York for his brother to train him. From all accounts of Mitchell it is to be presumed that Slavin is better off without so much science and less sauce and jaw. If the men train as they should the battle will be worth seeing anti will no doubt draw a tremendous crowd. Jackson is said to be far more scientific than his opponent, and provided he gets well and strong ho will prove the master of the man who has boasted in two countries that he could defeat Sulli. vau. It has been hinted that Jackson had a couple of hemorages before he sailed for Europe, and that he was not even as strong as when he met Corbett- This may have been told for an effect and to lull the other side into over confidence. There is one thing about Jackson, sick or well, he is a game man and has never yet refused to meet any man ,that wanted to face him. I still hold to the opinion that if ho had been well when ho met Corbett he would have been able to settle the problem as to the better man. I consider myself anything but an au thority, hut have been asked by several persons, and written to by as many more, wishing my opinion on the Hall and Fitz simmons match. I have this to repeat, that I would not, if I were Fitz, meet Hall over 158, the limit of the middle weight, Fltz said after his contest with Mahar that bo would not again go out of his class and because he fought one big fellow was no reason he should keep It up. Hall at one time ageed to meet Fitz tit 13, which would have been better than catch weights, which means as big as a house if Hull likes. Hall is seven years young er then the middle weight champion; he is taller, with a longer reach and is much heavier. The New York press give him credit for being wonderfully clever, so much so that in boxing with doc Choyin ski he made Joe appear to a great disad vantage. Fitzsimmons should not have consented to have fought at catch weights which will make Hall weigh about 180 or WO pounds', and Fitz maybe 158. Hall; itcan plainly be seen has everything in his fayor and if he as game as Fitz, where will the middle weight come in? 1 should like to have been his manager about the time the Parson and Hall begin to Jet off steam and I would have taught them a lesson lit moral buirage that neither had ever heard of. Letters received here from Carroll say the Curroll-Fitzaimiiioiis combination is doing splendidly, playing to crowded houses every night. Fitz is well and strong and Carroll says full of hope. .Sullivan aud Corbett, both playing iu St, Louis at the same time, will create a great sensation, and the papers say if the big fellow hud not gone buck on the ‘ Oh! be joyful” Corbett might see stars, as Sullivan does not like to be followid iu that manner. The champion is already taking care of himself, and if he trains as he should, he will walk out of the arena with the biggest money that any boxer ever did in the history of the wo; Id. Some men are born rich and some lucky, and Sullivan was born lucky; success at tends him and he has thrown away oppor tunities that would make the average man’s head swim to think of. Joe Choyiuski has made a very favora ble impression In New York, not only as one of the gamust men in the profession but for his gentlcnftiuly ways and agreea ble manners. Joe is looked upon as one of the coming great ones. Little Vanheest and Siddons are doing their work in a commendable manner and their contest will be a lively one when it comes off, which will bo in the latter part of this month. Johuy Wrifflu is teaching physical cul ture to u class in Boston and the neigh boring towns. He is also at the study of dentistry, *lf the newspapers of the South are any entemn, Mr, Hill will find his hands full now he has undertaken to manage his boom in that section of the country. The Atlanta Constitu tion is the only daily paper of any consequence which favors Mr. Hill’s aspiration, south of Mason and Dix on line. The sentiment of the Democratic masses aie just as thoroughly in favor of Cleveland, iu every State in the Union, as they are in South Carolina, Over three quarters of the Democratic voters want Grover Cleve land for ueit President. Is it well to defy them? : The Democrat who means Hill when he says he is in favor “of the strongest man” whom the party can put ijp, is about as ignorant of the tempfe 1 ’ of the people of this country as a babe in arms.
