Now Democracy—l 6to 1. Mrs. T. DeWitt Talmnge, wife of the noted divine, is dead. Twenty-five per cent of the world’s money is in this country. “To beer or not to beer” is the serious situation in Now Orleans on Sunday. A sequel of the Populite State convention—the Democratic con vention this weekv A lot of British missionaries were massacred by Chinese at Ku Cheng, China, last week. Something is wrong with the Government that permits Lynch law to become a necessity. Hon. Howell E. Jackson, asso ciate justice of the United States supreme court, died Thursday af ternoon, aged 63 years. Senator George has evidently forgotten the principles of the party that sent him to the United States’ Senate. In communities where the hab itual croaker revels, some people are so devilish that their exist ence alone are imp-ositions. Mayor Fitzpatrick, of Now Or leans, demands $5,000 damages done him in the impeacdimont trial. This is almost too cool for summer. The Vicksburg Post’s editorial dwelling on the withdrawal of Mr. McCabe from the gubernatorial race is the finest wo have read on the subject. Holmes, the scientific murder er, oven though he be acquitted, which is not improbable, will have a pretty hard time couviqc ing people that he is innocent. Mrs. Josie Frazee Cappleman, of Okolona and a member of the Mississippi State Press Associa tion, has issued an appeal to the people of Mississipp to be repre sented at the Atlanta exposition. The South has two cities of over 100,000 inhabitants; in the Xorth there are twenty citie 8 ranging from 100,000 to 1,000,000 and upward; the West has six running from 100,000 to 450,000. We are glad to note the im provements which have recently been done on the Biloxi Herald. The Herald is unquestionably one of the ablest weeklies in the State, and is fully deserving of the suc cess accorded it. The Gulf and Ship Island rail road has been purchased by Now York capitalists, so says the Times-Democrat. The statement is also made that all the necessary implements for the immediate completion have been procured. A prohibition paper asserts that a million people die annually from strong drink. If they really die so often, remarks an exchange, perhaps that are getting used to it and the shuffling off business does not come hard, if it really does not become a luxury. The sudden rises and falls in the price of wheat do not affect in the least the price of silver. Nor does the price of silver have the least effect on the price of wheat. One of the main argu ments of the silverites is com pletely overthrown by the fact that these two commodities of wheat and silver have little or no market relations with each other. THE ECHO’S POLICY. The Echo is a Democratic paper and will adhere to the principles cf Democracy Just as Ion" as it remains in the hands of the present manage ment. It will support the men that the Jackson Convention lias put in nomination just as unswervingly as any paper, but it will not Co: mo to up hold its gold policy, because the financial question is no more a State issue than is the tariff question. The appearance of gold editorials in our columns, as heretofore, must not bo mis understood as a form ef re sentment, nor a wish to bolt the Convention’s nominees. THE STATE CONVENTION. Mississippi’s Democracy pro claims to the world that it has lowered the banner floating the names of Monroe and Jefferson. The Convention met, and thinking itself a national body proceeded accordingly. The competency and capability of the man for office was not in vestigated. The stereotyped re quisite: “Are you u silver man”? adorned the walls. Matters pertaining to the State were buried in a silver tomb. Like the Missourians they con demned the Government’s finan cial system. The outcome of the (Convention, however, cannot help the white metallists and therefore should not rejoice over an empty victory. The men that have been nomi nated are irrevocably the party’s nominees, and every Democrat, wo trust, will remember his alle giance to the party that has so thoroughly forgotten itself. CANADA AS AN OBJECT LESSON. The cheap money faddists claim that prices depend on the amount of money in each country. They tell the farmer that wheat and cotton are low because money is scarce, and that doublingthc cur rency would double prices. So much for theory. Now for facts. Canada has about 5,000,000 population, and about $lO per capita of money. According to the silverites the price of all kinds of goods should be at least fifty per cent, lower in Canada than in this country, where we have over S2O per capita. But every body knows that prices in both countries are practically the same for nearly all kinds of goods. Of course in parts of Canada remote from markets farm produce is lower than in the neighborhood of our great cities. But there is just as much difference between the prices of products in, say South Carolina, and in Connecti cut. So it is not the value of currency which makes the differ ence. In some lines of manufac tured goods prices are even hfgh er in Canada than in the United States. This proves that the the ory of the cheap money men has no actual basis, but is merely a guess as to the real cause of high or low prices. “There is not enough metal money to do the business of the country,” is the confident asser tion of the silverites, on which they base a plea for cheap dollars. They are altogether wrong. It is true that there is not enough money if all business was done on a cash basis. But each year more and more of the total volume of exchanges of goods is carried on with our system of bank credits, by which business is done with very little money. As our bank ing system is perfected and ex tended the need for money in set tling accounts grows constantly less. If metal money alone was used, all the silver in the world would not be a tenth of the amount needed for this country’s business. The Echo’s choice, Col, Power is to be congratulated. QUESTIONS FOR SILVERITES. The so-called arguments of the free coinage shouters consist mainly of denunciations of Hie crime “of 1873,” and abuse of the gold bugs and money sharks. When asked fora plain statement of the effects of their cheap dol lar scheme they dodge and wrig gle, but refuse to give a straight answer. So long as they confine themselves to accounts of the good times which they allege will follow the adoption of free coin age, they may make some con verts. But ns soon ns their pre tences tire punctured by sharp in terrogation points, they collapse and are heard of no more. When a believer in honest money is urg ed to vote for enriching silver mine owners at the expense of the whole people let him ask the silverito some of these questions: 1. Has any intelligent busi ness man with the knowledge of the laws which govern prices, ever given an opinion that by opening its mints to the unlimi the coinage of tlilvor at 1(5 to 1 the United States could raise the com mercial value of silver fifty per cent? 2. Is there a country in the world which permits the free coinage of silver at any ratio, which has not a silver standard for its currency? 3. Is it not a fact that the great majority of the business men (merchants, manufacturers, etc-) of the country, who are the men who carry on its commerce and industry, are in favor of our present standard of value? 4. Is not the movement for free coinage largely due to the selfish motives of silver producers acting through designing politi cians? fi. \Vould not the adoption of a free coinage policy by the Uni ted States drive all the gold out of this country, thus contracting the currency over $600,000,000? 6. If so—and that such would bo the result is generally admitted by all leading silverites—would not the effect be at once to bring about widespread insolvency, business depression, and general disaster? 7. Would not the result of putting this country on the silver basis bo that Jdebtors would be enabled to repudiate one-half of the money they had loaned? 8. Is there any country which has the silver standard in which wages are not lower than in gold standard countries? 9. Would not the free coinage, by doubling prices (as based on cheap silver money), reduce wa ges in this country through the doubled cost of everything the wage earner must buy? 10. Admitting that on the sil ver standard the farmer would get higher prices for his wheat, etc., would he not have to pay more for everything he bought in exchange for his praduct? If so, how would he be benefitted? 11. If the farmers can justly ask the Government to adopt a currency systenf whi<;h will enable them to repudiate'" one-half of their debt, would not the man who own nothing be entitled to have thr Government take away half of the farmers property and gi\<? it to those who have none? 12. If cutting the value of the dollar in two would be a public benefit, why not quadruple prices by making twenty-five cent dollars? 13. How would the man who now has no money be able to get some without working for it if we had free silver? 14. Under free coinage would it not bo the silver producers, and net the Government, who would regulate the volume of currency? IN ftISSISSiPPI. “Bobbed I ” shouts the Populite “Robbed of our own ratio,” “S-h- sh-,” answers the proselytes “We’ll help you make it so.” Will someone kindly tell us which is the Democratic and itateV he PopUlito l )art y ■“ this Subscription —$1 00 per Annum, in Advance A QRHEN TURNIP. S|iniikiiiK of Col. Hooker*' njirncli nf Bay Bt. Louis tlio otlmr day The Sea Coast Echo, a gold hug paper, says: DnrhiK the course of his remarks he said, “What God hath Joined together let no man put asunder,” in other words let no mini separate silver and cold he cause they are found side by side This is very beautiful insofar as sentiment is concerned, but is it not rather fallacious? Sentiment can play no part in the rise and fall of the sea nf commerce. Col Hooker must have forgotten that all metals are pretty closely allied. Lead amt silver fields lie side by side as well as silver and gold, but is that why lead should be as valuable as silver? Let the Colonel walk over his farm some morning and he will see a number of things grow ing together; he will see the turnip side by side with the cabbage, does it follow that the former is us valuable us the lat ter. “The Echo man drew an unfortunate simile. Certainly the turnip is as valua ble us the cabbage, if not. more so. The turnip, like silver, is the poor man's friend, for on the turnip and its salad top he feed* his family and his stock very largely. Millions of acres of turnips un cultivated every year, both in this country and in Europe, and i hat it is a more nutritions and digestible article of food than the cabbage, all pliysiciansjwill agree. The cabbage is pretty good eat ing occasionally, but the most common use to which it is put. is to either shave it up into sailer kraut lengths, or make “heads” for editors of gold bug papers.— Jackson Clarion-Ledger. The great fundamental princi ples of gravity is as far removed from the Clarion-Ledger as the stars from earth. In the pres ence of the most preponderous issue that confronts and affects the commercial interests of a whole world it would ho merry. Hut we will raise no objection to its spirit of humor as in merri ness people of the Clarion-Led ger's calibre find solace and con tentment, qualities so essential for the maintenance of their men tal equilibrium. Farmers of Mississippi, this “salad top’’ paper tells you that the solitary turnip is as valuable as the cabbage to you and your family on the same improvident principle that it tells you the free coinage of silver is better than our gold standard. Has the cab bage, like our gold policy, ever refused to befriend the poor man? In all seasons of the year it springeth from the ground as dew from the heavens! But can the same be said of the turnip? No! and yet our contemporary tells you that this vegetable, like silver, is—is—the poor man’s friend I The Ledger unconscious ly and unwittingly drew a good picture of the money question; it shows its side of the issue with that exactitude which char acterizes the reflection of a de fect mirror. If The Echo really drew an unfortunate simile’’ does it re-‘ fleet any credit on our contempo rary for having attacked it? In an argument an adversary can win neither honor nor applause by deliberately selecting an erron eous assertion, among reliable ones, to refute. But even in this our humorous contemporary has failed for it seems to know as much about vegetables as it does about the financial question which it presumes to understand. It is an unfortunate fact that all editors cannot be cabbages and feel the beneficient forces of na ture and see the light, something which the poor “turnip” in the Clarion-Ledger’s office knows not of. AN AUDACIOUS TIBERTY. No one individually owns Bay St. Louis, but we do think some individuals elected, put in office and paid for is in duty bound to see that no one takes' the town and use it for their own and pri vate use as a recent successful at tempt well shows. Whether the city makes it prohibitory or not we do not know, but we do know that it should. Some time ago an out-of-town firm took the extreme liberty to convert the lovely oaks and other trees along our shell drive—the pride of all citizens and the joy of visitors—into instruments for ad vertising purposes. The front drive scenes should not be disfig. ured with such placards. This might be a precedent by which some concern might advertise to cure that “tired feeling” and fool visitors in believing such malady exists here. If the citv has given no authority for the dil tnbuticjn °f the signs in question t then should be the duty of everv man who is true to the town to remove them. n to COME TO MO.

A Kankakee, lUs., man waded out into the liver to drown a cat, took cramps and was drown himself. And the cat came back.—Vicksburg Post. A man can’t be elected to office in Mississippi to-day unless he lays aside modesty, rolls up his sleeves, cusses Cleveland and makes love to Populites.--Eupora Progress. A poll of the press of lowa shows that every Democratic papet in the Slate, with two exceptions, is op posed to free coinage of silver at Id to 1. And lowa is a Western State, too. —West Point Leader. Mississippi is not the only Slate with a collapsing Slate House. The same condition exists in Massachusetts. But there it less indifference or phi losophy in the old Hay State, and the Governor will call (he Legislature there to arrest the downfall.—Vicks burg Commercial Herald. A dog was advertised to plsy on a piano at a circus. When the time came for the dog to perform, lie got on a seat and begin playing. Sud denly a wag in the crowd shouted ‘Hats!” upon which the dog bound ed off the seat. Hut the piano kept on playing.—Minneapolis Haplist. An excited military looking gen tleman entered the editorial one afternoon, exclaiming s* ’‘That notice of my death is false, sir; I will horsewhip yon within an inch of your life if you don’t apologize in your next issue.” The editor in serted the following the next day; “We extremely regret to announce that the paragraph which slated that Major Hlazer was dead is without foundation.”—Dawren Blade. Disasters and misfortunes never come singly. While forest fires were devastating the timber regions of Michigan and floods were destroying life and property in Wyoming and Colorado, the Populile convention was naming a State ticket in Missis sippi.—Clarion-Ledger.] And the Mississippi free silver .Democrats were preparing to endorse the Popu lile financial platform.—Vicksburg Post. The largest deal in the history of the Southern lumber trade hasjbeen dosed by the execution at St. Louis of a contract by an extensive lumber company of Lumberton. Miss., to furnish 10.000,000 feet of yellow pine lumber to a large manufacturing company of St. Louis. It will take the mills four years to saw this lum ber, anti require 10,000 freight cars to carry it to its destination.—Oko lona Sun. In the town of Quantuck, N. J., which lies in a low, hot nook, sur rounded by swampy land, the mos quitoes have been so thick this sea son that, when the breeze is gentle, they form a thick, black cloud over the town. On several occasions of late this has been so noticeable that hens have goce to roost at noon, un der the impression that it was already nightfall,and without performing their daily task of egg-laying. As the poultry business is a leading one of the town, the fanciers suffer for a lime considerable financial loss, until the device was hit upon of sending up small dynamite cartridges among the thickest swamps of mosquitoes, by means of a kite, flown by a wire, which, at the right moment, conveys a current of electricity to discharge the dynamite. After a few discharges the air is so cleared that hens can re sume operation, and the gory remains of the dead mosquitoes, falling to the ground, are plowed m as fertilizers. —New York Recorder.
