TUESDAY'S MASS MEETING. The proceedings of the meeting of tax-payers hold, at the court house for the object of discussing the necessity and feasibility of a system of waterworks for Ray St. Louis are of a nature that could not be otherwise unless tin deliberations had I cen the result of uiwisi heads, and tin simple adage tiiat says we must creep before walking is a Just pre cedent of what seemed to have guida I this bo I/’a wo:!t. The Mayor’s nomination of Hon, L. H. VonGohren, alder man from the first ward, is one among the best that could have beeu made, and the selection of \ Hon. August Keller as secretary to such an active office is an honor not only fitting to this gentleman but a Just compliment to his abil ity. While this assembly was composed of many of the city’s foremost citizens and tax-payers, yet, with due respect to those present, it must be admitted that this meeting was conspicuous 1 y the absence of wider representa tion; this lack is not noted hero for the want of activity, but the manifestation of a deeper interest would have been evident. The course pursued artf! adopted was a far-sdelnft one and the business conservatism which marked the transactions are due more than passing notice. Some remarks enamating from the audience were extremely Judi cious and while they were given no satisfactory consideration, we must oolt dwell on these here in a similar manner, but no Just and fair-thinking person can coun tenance the infringement made by an ex-resident by actively par ticipating in the proceedings, and the applause given at that time whether sincere or mockery we cannot vouch for but the former is more apt to bo, unfortunately. The committee appointed to make inquiry relative to further action in the matter are men in whose integrity and determination to do duty our citizens can repose the deepest confidence. COL. STOCKDALE FOR THE BENCH. The friends of Col. Thomas B. Stockdale, cx-mernl>er from this congressional district, firmly be lieve that this gentleman wai destined for perpetual office hold ing, and it passes their compre hension why he is not nestling in some well-greased, cozy office. At Summit, the home of the Colonel's home, he was indorsed by petition to the governor by the bar of his county for the vacancy of the judge ship on the supreme bench to occur in "97. Of course, since it is J a petition in nis favor it could not I consistently he otherwise but com- , plimentacy to kuueself, and among j other things it stuys he “is a Jurist of profound learning and ostab-1 lished acumen, a man of highest I character and unimpeachable rep utation, and the possessor of an extensive experience, which has grown out of a most eminent practice at the bar for more than a century.” The press of this district, in a majority, is quite antagonistic to the “Tall pine from Pike,” and if it were left in its power, there would be a dis crimination unfavorable to the gentleman in question. If Col. Stockdale is qualified, the gov ernor will be cognizant of the fact and if othei wise his excellen cy will promptly ignore with due respect all pet tions and other s'm lar forms. me MESSAGE. Congress in in possession of an other one of those masterly mos- Hivge* which have characterized Oroyer Cleveland since his induc tion into the office. It is clear and concise, dealing with the two preat questions now agitatin'? this country—our monetary system ami our relation with foreign powers—in a manner entirely his. He explains the financial condi tion of the country, the pani which would necessarily result from the adoption of the free coinage of silver. Asa remedy for the financial disturbances he would recommend the retirement |°f mil* green back money. He i believes this can be accomplished by the exchange of United States notes for United Sates bonds which could be expediently issued ■ in small as well as in large denom inations, and which would bear a I small interest. He would make 'them a long termed bond so when I prosperity returns the treasury would not be burdened in moot ing its obligation. Ho supports the feasibility of the plan with i promiscuous examples and which fully demonstrates its advantages | over the present system. I His position on the relation of j this government with foreign na tions is unmistakably American, free from bragadoccio, yet posses sing an undercur rent of determin ation which carries conviction. Grover Cleveland shows himself the great man bo is in his messa ges, and whatever his enemies might say about him it remains an incontrovertible fact that ho is thoroughly master of himself and that ho thoroughly fills the presidential chair. THE SOUTH IN THE NORTH. 1 he New South, in its march of phenomenal development is com ing to the front with u view of furthering its future prosperity | and is fully aware that its condi ■ tion can be bettered by extending operations outside of its limits, j and this is exactly what is propos ed. Tho Southern Cotton States and International exposition with its scenes so successfully laid in Atlanta gives Georgia tho distinc tion of representing the South, and it is natural for the outside world to be so impressed. It is currently reported that enterpris ing cotton factors and manufactu rers of other Georgia points pro pose a Southern exposition, i. e., an exhibition solely of Southern products in the mighty city of Chicago, principally to show what has been done and what is being done in the way of converting its fleecy staple into merchantable fabrics. The main point is to bring into closer relations of one country two distinct commercial territories, and the recent visit from Chicagoans on “Chicago Day” and “Illinois Day” at tho exposition has brought about such a congenial feeling that it is thought to conceive this disposi tion into commercial as as well as social existence. The move is in thorough keep ing with progressivenossand char acteristic of the New South, fully applied in the sense of the word as coined by the lamented Grady. At presant Georgia is unaccom panied in the move, but what is good for one State is good for another, and, recognizing this, all Dixie will follow in the wake. The presence of Cardinal Satol li, Delegate Apostollic, and Car dinal Gibbons, the universally loved Primate of the chucrh in America, has been promised on the interesting occasion of inaug uration of the Catholic Winter School in America, at New Or leans, This auspicious event is fixed contemporaneously, with next Mardi Gras which great Crescent City festival occur on | February 18,1896. The co-oper ; ation of the distinguished prelates will give great dignity and eclat to the new educational movement. If the liberty of .Marshall, Fox and Coleman depended: ou the Biloxi Herald they would nev , w get it; and the Herald is right. Subscription—fl 00. per Annum* in Advance SENATOR MILL AQAIN. T ho Echo, from the time Mr. Mill of Sew York in 1892 forced hi name for the presidential nomination at the hand* of the Democrats, has had no favor for the gentleman simply by reason that it was evident from numer ous indications he could not even carry his own .State, the field so necessary to win the battle; and since this determination of objec- | rion we have lea tied bi n to be| truly ambitious, but only the ambition that belong* to the! politician—not ngstatesmnn. The! Democratic party has learned of the weakness of Mr. “I am n 1 Democrat” and cannot and neith- ! or cares to entertain his services! n any event, for the maintenance | of its popularity. In two succ.es- j sivc elections Mr. Hill has been beaten, A year ago he ran for governor of his tnte but was “snowed under” and insfrument fil in the party’s defeat. Tbia last year he was conspicuous in the leadership of his party and the result in New York was hard ly more fortunate. Ihe Senator’s latest defeat is his attempt at lecturing, but whether his efforts ware brilliant or repelling is not given out, but the one fact that small audiences all along the lino greeted the lec turer is sufficient material for de finite conclusions, and it would bo well if the gentleman of the Em pire State abandons what seems to-day to have trecome a fad with people of any sort of notoriety. The dispatches give it out that Mr. Hill is indisposed, and not for one moment do wo doubt that he is a sick man, and very sick at that, too. Flic Issue a free silver paper published at Senntobia, Miss., has suspended publication.’ Judging from its contemporary the North Mississippi Democrat, Senntobia is a good town, capable of sup porting two papers, and Jwe are of the opinion that had the Issue healthily adopted the sound mon ey platform, conformed its course to sound principles it would now be enjoying prosperity instead of being only a memory. The death of the Issue demonstrates the de cay of tho silver issue in Missis sippi. Editorially dwelling on the pro posed dram shop law of Hon. M. A. Dees, the Ililoxi Herald com ments at length on the absurdity of that gentleman’s hill stipulat ing a salary of 141,65 per month for a deputy sheriff which he wants each and every saloon to have. To what the Herald can not reconcile itself can be easily' explained. Mr. Dees wants to create these lucrative (?) offices and probably secure one for him self. Serions complications have aris en bet ween the United States and England in regard to the Venezu ela boundary which may result in a war between these two most powerful nations on earth. The Monroe doctrine hangs in the scale and the outcome of the dis pute will decide its fate. A majority of the members of the House, according to a news paper poll, favor the recognition of Cuba, but as the paper didn’t get Tom Reed’s ideas that signi fies nothing. It is wbnt Mr. Reed wants that will go in the House, ’and not what the majority wants" The worth of the Journalist and the country editor!* at fast being recognized.

Beaitvolr for the State The question of hiving the State of Mississippi liny Beauvoir furjl Soldier’s home which was * 0 Imsiffir | agitated a few in mills ngh ha* eltli ■ j been buried or put to sleep, for mr i thing is read or heard of Hat this lime. Whatever may have beta of i sentimental nature in this move to purchase H- novior and preserve it aa n State institution, there Is a practi cal side which Southward highly fa vors. which is the purchase of %au- I' oir by the S'nle to be used for an Experiment Station either as a i branch, or Independent of the Ag ricutliiral and Mechanical College at !

I The gulf coast portion of Mississi i ppi is, and always l.een sadly neg lecled in the distribution of Stale In stitutions, The Agricultural ant Mechanical College at Surkvllle has licen a great thing for Noth Missis sippi. hut it is so far from this sec tion that its benefits do not roach the gulf coast. At the present lime there ia a mighty effort made to bring new settlers to the State nod the coast that should not he left to work out its own development while other Pr* are made mo-e attractive through Slate assistance. If the State will buy Beauvoir and establish there au Experiment Sta tion and horticultural hall, (o he a practical example of what this coun try can do in the line of farm pro ducts. fruits, vegetables, tropical plants and flowers, it would be not only a living monument of the re sources of Southern Mississippi, but attract more people to the coast and the State than any oilier project that could be undertaken. It would be a fit!log monument to the memory of Jefferson llavis, more expressive limn piles of granite or shafts of marble. Then in suitable keeping with the sentimental and practical, let the Stale employ none but old oonfeder ate soldiers to establish and-keep up Hie institution, ibis would be better than the trifling persrona allowed Ihrm, for this could be made a vete ran home as wtll as an Experiment Station.—Gulfporl Southward. Gulf Coast niltmen. Pensacola, Flo., Dec. B.—The com mittee on organization appointed by the Giilfcoasl millmen met here to , day, and finished their labors to , night. Those present were; Geo. I W. Uouinsoo, *i Pascagoula, clratT man ; J. W. Black and J. W. March, of Mobile; J. L, Dantzler and A. P. Denny, of Moss Point; F. C. Chaffin, of Milton; F. M, McMillan, of Pine Barron, E. F. Skinner, of Escambia, and P. K.. Vonge, of Ibis city. The meeting was very barm anions, and the committees were unanimous for organization. A plan was adopt ed for the formation of the Gulf Coast Lumber Company, to be com posed of all millmen manufacturing lumber for export. Many hours were spent in perfecting the details of the organization. It was voted to call a meeting of the millmen, to be belt! in Mobile on Dec. 10. The plan adopted by the committee to-day will lie submitted to tiiat meeting or adoption. The basis of the plan is to control the output of the mills, and thus increase the price of lumber on the Gulf coast. The receipt* into the United BU',ea treasury last month were, in round figures, $f>,500,000 greater than in November last year and 12,000,000 greater than in November, 1893. The deficit last month was about tl -125,000, against f9,100,000' in Nov ember last year and 17,3000-000 in November the year before. These facts are a sufficient commentary Bp on the assertions made by the Re publican party organs a month ago that the October expenditures were largely passed over into November sous to cut down the deficit and J make the best possible shoving just before the November elections, i ba* comparatively small deficit last month proves that there was no truth in those assertions. The figures alto show that the revenues under the new* law are fast overtaking the expendi tures and 1 that the administration may find itself fairly independent of the hostile home.—Chicago Chroii cle. That Cleveland will not be a candidate for a third term is al - most a surety,, at least we believe so as we do not think Cleveland a man to court defeat. It is Czar Reed’s turn now, but some of those he is now walking over may be delegates to the nom inating convention; then they’ll have a turn. Presinent Cleveland has mu 1 | what Congress might do; now th > | country is waiting to see what th l ! Congress will do.
