We trust that no Republican paper will forget to print the re storation of the old rate of wages to the Fall River mill operatives. It is a Republican paper—the N. Y. Press—that accuses Repub lican members of the Now York legislature of having accepted bribes. The man who refuses to listen to the arguments of his opponents is usually afraid that ho will be converted to (he other fellow’s views. Bluster and brag, snort blow and threaten idl you wish, Mr. John Bull, but you’ll respect the Monroe Doctrine, or suffer the dire consequence of your rash ness. What a nice mess that Repub lican legislature is making at Al bany, anyway. The voters of New York will remember, when the tme comes, to elect another legislature. Perhaps Japan would not ob ject to utilizing the army sb#nas on her hands in a scrape with some European nation, just to as certain the real fighting qualities of her soldiers. Now that cotton is going up, it is to bo hoped that the planters will not he too delighted with the outlook and unfortunately cause an over-production of the fleecy staple. Fitzsimmons has posted his last $5,000 to hind his match with Corbett. This being done the con test can ho expected to take place in September, but no one knows where. This is a queer world. A Phil adelphia clerk says he stole from his employer in order to keep a temperance paper, of which he was editor, going. Stealing to re form others is certainly a unique crime.. Harrison on a free silver plat form in view of past history would i ideed, we believe it never will, rattle old time Radicals Harrison must have doffed his “grandfath er’s hat” if he has really become a free silver advocate. To he truthful, just now the indications arc that the Demo cratic party will be defeated in ,( J(5, and it is now pretty widely known why the Northern press is I itching for a Southern man for, president. Suicide for the South is intended. Of course we want “good men and true” to fill our State office)?. But what are we to do if all the candidates are equally “good and true?” Why don’t our confreres admit that the contest is simply ouo to test the degree of popula rity that one contestant enjoys over his competitors? Will the South present a solid | front at the coming Presidential election? We believe it will. No t circumstance whatever in the last I three years has hud a tendency to i disrupt the ties that bind the sev eral States together and we can see no indication to cause any fear that any will break away from traditional duty. Their interests are mutual as they were a decade ago, and these will impel them to labor shoulder to shoul der in any event in which they may be in some way involved. I BAY ST. LOUIS. MISS., SATURDAY, APRIL 27,1895. HANCOCK COUNTY. Hancock county is situated in the extreme south-west corner of Mississippi, and is one of the best countries South for all purposes. People desiring to better their position are invited to come and make this their homo. The dif ferent products of Hancock coun ty and the yield per acre are: sweet potatoes, from 100 to 400 bushel; rice, from 6to 6 barrels; peas and corn, from 25 to 40 bushels; hay, from 1 to 2 tons, and all varieties of vegetables do exceedingly well. Pearl and Jor dan rivers with their many tribu taries flow past lahd in the county. These streams abound with tish of all kinds and the water is naviga ble, schooners of heavy draught, transporting lumber from the dif ferent sawmills. The agricultu ral lands are near towns and of access to railroads. The timber industry is the principal one, the county having 11 sawmills one of which is the largest and most modern in the South. The soil is sandy in most parte but very pro ductive when fertilized. The ad vantages and attractions of the summer and winter resorts of the county are found in Bay St. Louis (the county seat]) and vicin ity for New Orleans visitors us a summer resort, and u winter re sort for Northern people; good hotels and private boarding houses, fine drives, first-class bathing and excursions. From Now Orleans, only 52 miles there are four trains daily and cheap rate excursions twice a week. The temperature on an average is 96 maximum, mean, about 65 and minimum about 25 above zero. The climate is healthy, first-class and malaria is unknown. The I county has two railroads, the I Louisville and Nashville and the j Queen and Crescent. The price . of agricultural lands, according to location, varies from $1.25 per acre upward, and town lots, ac cording to location, from 50 cents a foot upward. The county has a splendid system of public schools and private educational institu tions. The churches are of Cath olic, Episcopalian, Baptist and Methodist denominations. About 45,000 acres of government land are subject to entry. A FEW APPROPRIATE WORDS, The first exclamation of the an nual visitor to Bay St. Louis as ho sets foot on its soil for the purpose of selecting a homo for the summer is almost invariably “The same dear old Bayl” To some this may have a very pleas ing ring, but to us it has a grating sound, for beneath its surface is h dden a disagreeable int imation that our beautiful city has made no progress in the past year, is, indeed, devoid of improvement that should mark the progress of time and the results of energy and enterprise. How many of our readers, nay, how few, have given a moment’s thought in the past year to the dearth of new business enter prises, to the paucity of foreign capital that has found its way hither and the meager investments of home capital that have been made since the beginning of last summer. They may be satisfied with the revenue derived from the temporary sojourners seeking health or recreation, but why should (hey not lend a few thoughts to the future? That should certainly concern them quite as much as the present; for no one knows what the morrow may bring forth, and it were wise to prepare for contingencies that might arise and force us to depend upon other sources of revenue. We are by no means alarmists; but wo can and do realize the fact that we depend too largely upon nature s magnificent offerings for our bread and butter and neglect numerous opportunities to make a business or manufacturing cem ter of Bay St. Louis and reap the many benefits certain to accrue therefrom. Ihe day is fast approaching when our good people will think as we do, concern themselves about the future of Bay St. Louis ana bestir themselves accorcling- The improvements recently made by the L. & N. company in and about the depot indicate their detei urination to maintain their offices here notwithstanding the rumors to the contrary that were current some time ago. We hope that every element of the community will appreciate the company’s partiality to Bay St. Louis and lake delight in not only refraining from speakingor acting against the railroad’s interest but in favoring the liberal company to their utmost. The State Executive Committee have decided in favor of a dele gate convention, despite the over whelming sentiment in favor of a primary election. This is the politicians’ victory, but though it goes roughly against the grain wo submit as obedient Democrats, as serting our regret, however, that the unscrupulous wire-pullers were permitted to manipulate the committee’s doings in favor of possibly questionable scheming to thwart the popular will. Ambassador Eustis may have shattered a few of the traditions of diplomacy—the art of talking without saying anything—by that London speech, but he struck the bull’s eye of truth so often (hat he deserves throe cheers and a tiger from every American. Those Europeans need to he told the truth occasionally,and nobody can do it more fittingly than an Amer ican. Talk as loudly as they may of the free silver sentiment spread ing rapidly, the silver cranks are nevertheless compelled to read daily the anti-silver resolutions enthusiastically adopted by busi ness organizations and commer cial gatherings in every section of our broad land. These are un mistakable evidences of the drift of popular feeling in favor of sound money. The people of New Orleans arc making an effort to secure one of the national political conventions for the Crescent city next year. We sincerely hope that it will in duce the Republicans to hold their big pow-wow there, because we feel confident that it would, in such case, greatly accelerate the death of anti-South prejudice. The European powers seem to know just what they are about when they check Japan’s abnor mal appetite for territory and power. It would not, otherwise, take long before the Japs would feel big enough to challenge the whole of Europe with China thrown in lagniappe. The earnest consideration of the voters is called to formal an nouncement of Judge John A. Breath who is candidate for re election to the office of Justice of the Peace from District .5. Judge Breath is a gentlemen in every way worthy of the honors of the office. A girl's taste differs according to her age, says a critic. Atsixteen she wants ■ dude who smokes cigarettes) wears toothpick sines and a micro scopic mustache; at twenty a chief justice with plenty of money will suit her; at twenty-five she will he satisfied with a member of congress; at thirty a country doctor or a poor preacher will do, and at thirty-five anything in the male line from an editor jdown Ex. The value of printers' ink to a business man is not always easy to compute. People read advertise ments and are influenced by them to trade with men who advertise, bu t very rarely mention the fact, even if they are conscious of it tlicmse Ives, that the advertisement caused them to do #o. There is an object lesson, however, to those who arc able to profit by the experience of others, m the fact that very, very few men who have competition ever make even a partial success without alvertising —Terry II ad fight.

Plenty of forced court-log tbit WCOK. “We will soon be-er in summer,” said (he stuttering man. Every smoker lias money to burn, the rich Huv-ana quantity. There will be a hand-cuffed ex cursion to Jackson, Miss., shortly. The man who thirsts for know ledge generally leasts on brandy. The orange trees are not expected to turn anew leaf in the near future. Between an April sun and the N. O. Item things wax hot in the Cres cent city. Mr. Held's bluff seems to be a huge one, but quite different from those of ex-speaker Reed. “I feel weak,” sighed the conval secenl. ”’Tis a week jlay, to he sure,” complacently said the other. The distinction which the murder er Fuller received in being the first hanged in tlie new jail also caused his extinction. It’s not every Englishman that's a count tlial is account, no doubt some are, others count only after their marriage; the average is at a dis count. No girl will dare say tno new style “leg of mutton” sleeves are “out of sight*,”lbe name is quite appropri ate as buckram is used in the make up of It, One who could not attend wants to know if the speech delivered at the court house Monday morning was F-Low-e-ry; wo rhould remark it was silver-y. One of our county candidates is very Frank about Ids candidacy, and about his prospects for elections he seems as contented as a J-ay. Col. Ingersoll may appear Green on religions matters but people will admit that his say’on the liquor question is (although dry) the great est flight of oratory attained by mor tal on this “burning” question. She was a lawyer's daughter, but the book agent kissed her. “Sir!” she exclaimed, “how dare yon? Don’t you know I can have you in dicted tor larceny?’’ “All right,” he replied. “If you do, I’ll have you charged with re ceiving stoic r, property.” It is not expected that a girl should have the absolu'e purity of a baking powder, lull she should be as good as she can be.—N. (), Pica yune. Some girls go to Europe and after they return they become quite Royal, that is if they catch a nobleman. Price is no object. That, which should enter and be prized in eny community—Enter prise. Yet some people will squan der their money on imported wines and turn their back ou the home raised strawberries and lettuce feel *he effect of their misplaced econ omy. And it came to pass that one Leo N. Levi, high in the Jewish Church, oratrd recently in New Orleans on the place of the Jew in history and Opened his address with: “What shall become of the Jew.” What shall become of the Christians in opposing lines of business to the Jew inNew Orleans would have been far more appropriate. You may meet u man in a dire and know nothing had of him. You may meet a man at church aud know nothing good of him.—N. O. Pica yune. Well said, and the man who goes into a dive for mere curosity like the “carte blanche” shou’d so l e labelled, and like Nellie Bly when she feigned insanity to write up an insane assylum shnild never return there. However, one dive brings on another. Business is reviving, confidence is being restored, cotton is steadily look ing up, and the people would soon be contented and happy, if it were not for the voice of the ranting dem agogue. The politicians and office seekers are doing more to breed con fusion among the people than all the existing circumstances, governmental or otherwise. The people of this country have shown evidence that they are determined to stem the pres ent tide of business depression, by earnest effort and economy, and if l let alone would come out trium phant. Eupora Progress. The Crimes of Alcohol. Col. IloberlO. Ingersoll in address ing a Jury in a case involving the manufacture of alcohol delivered the following scathing denunciation of the fiery liquid. “I am aware that there is a prejudice against any man who manufactures alcohol. I believe hat from the lime it issues from !*• coiled and poisonous worm in the distilleiy until it empties into the jaws of death, dishonor, and clime that it demoralizes everybody that touches it from its source to wluro it endsr Ido not believe anybody can contemplate the object without being prejudiced against the liquor crime. All w# have to do, gentle men, Is to think of the wrecks on either bank of the stream of death, of the suicides, of the insanity, of the ignorance, of the destitution, of the little children tugging at the faded and withered breast of weep ing and despairing mothers, of wives asking for bread, of the men of gen ius it has wrecked, the men strug gling with imaginary serpents, pro duced by this devilish thing; and when you think of the jails, of the alrahouses, of the assyluras, of the prisons, of the scaffolds upon either bank, I do not wonder that every thoughtful man is prejudiced against this damned stuff called alcohol. Intemperance cuts down youth in Its vigor, manhood in its strength, old age in its weakness. It breaks the father’s heart, bereaves the doting mother, extinguishes natural affec tion, erases conjugal love, blots out filial attachment, blights parental hope, brings down mourning age in sorrow to the grave, It produces weakness, not strength; sickness, not health; death, not life. It makes wives widows; children or phans ; fathers fiends; and all of them paupers and beggars. It feeds rheumatism, invites cholera, imports pestilence, and embraces consump tion. It covers the land with idle' ness, misery crime. It fills your jails, supplies your almhouses, and demands yonr assylums. It engen der controversies, foatera quarrels, and cherishes riots. It crowds pen itentiaries and furnishes victims for your scaffolds. It is the life blood of the gambler, the clement of the burglar, the prop of the highway man, an 1 support of the midnight incendiary. It countenances the liar, respects the thief, esteems the bias pbemer. It violates the obligation, reverences fraud, and honors infa my. It defames benevolence, hates love, scorns virtue, and slanders in nocence. It incites the father to butcher his helpless offspring, helps the husband to massacre bit wife and tie child to grind the parddal ax. It burns up men, 'consumes women, detests life, curses God, despises heaven. It suborns witnesses, noi ses perjury, defies the jury box, and stains judicial ermine. It degrades the citizen, debases the legislature, dishonors statesmen, and disarms the patriot. It brings shame, not honor; terror, not safety ; despair, not hope ; misery, not happiness; and with the malevolence of a fiend it calmly sur veys its frightful desolation and un salialed havoc. It poisons felicity, kills peace, ruins morals, blights confidence, slays reputations, and wipes out national honor, then cur ses the world end laughs at its ruin. It does all that, and more It mur ders the soul. It is the sum of alt villianies, the father of all crimes, I lie mother of all abominations, the devil’s best friend, and God’s worst enemy. McKinleyism is discarded. It will not be agamed embraced. Who can compare the steady decline of pros perity under the McKinley Uw and the steady improvement under the Democratic tariff, and say that the American people will be so unwise as to resort to McKinley ism again ? The pledge that tbe Republican par ty would restore the McKinley bill would bury that party four times as deep in 1896 as the original McKinley bill did in 1892.—Utica Observer. An income tax that does not touch individual* and families whose mimes occur to every mind when unprece dented accumulations of property arc mentioned is ikt most carious scheme for taxing wealth that was ever seen.-.New Yo-k Journal of Commerce..
