For the South especially 18!l. r is reported as having been a year of much prosperity. Conditions in the South were never healthier. Gov. A. J. has de clared ho will not be u candidate for the United States’ senate. Thus can even a politician net nobly. | Whatever one may tbsik about that now issue on berttds, one must admire the nerve of Presi-1 dent Cleveland in calling the bluff made by republican Senators. Respect for that Venozuloan Boundary Commission is rapidly increasing in England. John Bull is avaricious, grasping, a bully and all that sort of thing, but nobody accused him of being a fool. Closing saloons is anew way, discovered by the Chicago brew ers, to increase the consumption of beer. If the idea is correct the anti-saloon workers are mak ing business for the brewers right: along. Intelligence from Pearl River and Union counties report the discovery of gold in both of those counties. In the latter it is said parties are making from $(! to $8 per day gathering the precious metal. A German has invented an in candescent lamp apparatus for showing the interior of boilers while filled with steam. A lamp that would show the interior of other people’s business would be a boon for the curious. On tho first of the month all of tho famous issue of Mississippi certificates or warrants were re deemed. There are being pre sented rapidly at the State treas urer’s office at Jackson and during the forepart of the week something like SIOO,OOO have been redeemed. This is a groat deal more than half th number outstanding. The St. Louis Globe-Democrat calls attention to the fact that when the civil war opened the wealth of this country was estim ated at $16,000,000,000. In 1800 it had reached $65,000,000,000. The most remarkable fact con nected with these figures is that the United Mates accumulated three times as much wealth dur ing the thirty years ending with 1890 as in the thirty years pro ceeding 1860. In a public letter appearing in the Mobile Register of last Sun day, Hon. R. H. Clarke of Ala bama announced himself as a can didate for its governor. For quite a long while the Adminis trationists had been urging him to make the race, and, finally re alizing the bold race made by the silverites, has consented. There si no doubt that the intelligence of Alabama will suppress tho ig noble silver agitation and elect Mr. Clark. If the Republicans had been even one-tenth honest in their professions of putting up the tax es for “revenue only” they would have voted an additional tax of $1 a barrel on beer. This would have supplied all the revenue need even for coast defenses in the event of war. Instead of this they have passed through the House a bill increasing the taxes on the warm clothing of the peo ple 35 per cent., and on nearly all other necessaries 15 per cent. Providence will not everlastingly frown on the Democrats. They have not a monopoly of error making. BARBARLSIT AND CIVILIZATION. Mow frail after all is the bar rier that separates civilization from barbarism. Ot e werd too many; one unguarded action, and nations as well ns idividuals are precipitated into the wildest cha ] os, from which flows a Nigarru of I human blood. We may truth- I fully say, in the midst of civiliza tion wo arc in barbarism. Though our civilization is the progress of n any centuries, the product of an ocean of brain; the harvest of a most diligent cultivation, its uflucnce is as easily forgot as if it iiad never existed. As there is something wrong with the punishment that fails to reform so must there he some thing imperfect in a system pf, < ivilization that fails to civilizb, tor it cannot reasonably le contended or oven admitted that our readiness tot destroy and devastate, our continuous preparations for "emergencies” can lie the fruit of an irreproach able civilization. When wo look back to the middle ages, wo put up our hands in horror and ex claim "horrible I” but is our en lightened, latter day social condi tion so free from the degraded impulses of that accursed demon, barbarism, that we can justifiably condemn any portion of our ter rifying history? Is it not only opportunity that lacks to draw downward our present civilization to the bottomless pit of degrada tion? The bands which keep together our present society are so inse cure that we cannot afford to I I scoff at the past with its uncount ed crimes and untold misery; in deed, wo feel disposed to repro -1 dure an old adage, “those who live in glass houses should not throw stone,” for there is no sur mising how soon one of those stones can rebound and shatter utterly the fabric upon which wo rest. Must man, after ail, admit the theory of Darwin, and acknow ledge that ho is the evolution of the monkey? The old proverb ! that history repeats itself seems Ito verify the connection, bearing Jin mind the insatiable desire of the monkey to imitate. And is not the repitition of history but the monkey in man to act as did his predecessor? However that may be, tne durability and the be nign influence of civilization re main questions. ENGLAND AND OERHANY. Europe is about to clash in war. The roaring of the Lion too near the German Empire has disturbed the equanimity of the Emperor, and his message to En gland regarding the affair gives that government no alternative but to fight or back down. But England, although acknowledged a buldoozer, and which is quite true, is by no means a coward, and it is certain she will remain in the present dispute with Ger many until the very last. Germany is emboldened in her attack upon Great Britain in an anticipation that Russia will form an alliance with her, and which The Echo does not doubt Russia is quite willing to do, as the Bear is as anxious for the downfall of the Lion as Cassius was to slay Caesar, so she can extend her ter ritory in almost every part of Asia, from the Sea of Marmora on the west to the Yellow Sea on the east; and Germany would glory in extending her possessions on both coasts of Africa, and in parts of the Western Pacific. Germany is also tryingto secure the co-operation of France, but it is not probale that France will consent, as she bates Germany even more than she does the En glish nation, and besides, England can offer France as much induce ment for her aid as can Germany. But there is no doubt that En gland can successfully cope with the combined powers of Germany and Russia as her navy is over whelmingly superior, and greatly exceeds in number that of the two hostile nations together. Subscription—fl 00. per Annum, in Advance Wreck at the RlgoletsJ At an early hour Tuesday morning I a south-hound freight train of twen ty-eight box cats ran on the Hego leU bridge while the draw bridge was partially opened, and the force of the locomotive broke two spans of | the draw in its collision and fell into llfly feet of wale*, carrying lo the bottom twenty-two of the curs. The blame is as yet officially at - tached lo no one, but it | 8 natural to suppose either Engineer Gcis or Hridgctendcr Klalto will get the same, unless gome unknown facta he presented at the lime of official ex amination. Two colored firemen went down with the engine and one of the pair was foiUmalc lo cscapa after having went down to the bot tom. Au unknown number of trumps perished in the wreck, and I tl ere were several raiiaciilous escapes was experienced. 1 ho entire loss, including proper ty, labor, loss of business, etc., will cost the company somewhere in the vicinity of one million dollars. •Superintendent Charles Marshall is lo be congratulated upon the ad mirable management of matters and In the remarkable short lime in which lie had all trains running again on time, the same as if nothing had happened. Thu break was bridged at mid-night Thursday., Other rail roads and managements arc not to be regarded wh n it'coracs to the L. & N, and its Marshall. L. & N. Coast Service. The gratifying news comes that the coast service of the L. & N. rail road will be, greatly imdroved with the opening of spring, a move which will l>e highly appreciated by its pa trons. The New (Orleans .States says it will practically revolutionize the coast travel and adds; ‘Superin tendent Marshall is known to have gotten his division into magnificent shape, and with the placing of an entirely new equippment of locomo tives and coaches, and an improved lime schedule, tlie already popular gulf resorts will gain additionally in public favor. It is understood that among the many improvements con templated is Hie fitting np of coaches in the most approved rattan wicker work. There will be a double daily service of gulf resort trains that will make the run to, say, Wavcland or Bay .St. Louis in an hour or therea bouts,” Superintendent Marsnall well merits praise for Ids untiring ef forts to cater to the comfort and pleasure of the traveling public and in this line he has an able lieutenant in Division Passenger Agent Kilken ny. These gentlemen are wide awake to the interest of their road, and consequently have much favor in the eyes of its const patrons. VV hat the schedule of the new ser vice will be of course is not known, but it will undoubtedly be conve nient to the coast residents.—Biloxi Herald. Mr. Cleveland Wrote It. The belief that the message sent to cengress was written by Mr. Olney, not by Mr. Cleveland, is very gener ously expressed, but it U authorita tively declared that this belief is not founded on fact. The original draft of the message was in Mr. Cleve land’s own handwriting. Mr. Cleve land returned to the White House about 3 o’clock on Sunday. He a*. once sent for Secretary Gl uey, Secretary Lament and Secreta ry Carlisle and was in conference with them for a comparatively short time. He worked alone that night, and before 11 o’clock Monday morn ing be handed to one of the clerks the message, all in bis own handwrit ing. It was written on a small tab let and made 15 pages of his very fine manuscript. From this were made the drafts of the message sent to congress Tuesday.—Washington Star. Florida is on the verge of a big boom in tobacco-growing, according to all Indications. There are fully 800 applications for seed tobacco on file in the Florida State department of agriculture, and tobacco-growers’ associations are being formed in almost every county in the Mate. Both cigar and plug tobacco are to be grown. Utah was this week admitted into the Union, and the school boy should not forget that there are now forty-five Stars to the fIR- It is a well-known fact that rats and mice do no) infest a house at the same time, according to an exchange. Working upon the hint ns to the on line of rodents, N. K. Laureson, of Vicksburg, lias adopted a scheme by which he keeps himself rid of both pests. This he accomplishes hy cap luring a young rat and training him to catch mice. The singular moiiser, whose name, by the way, is Czar, is doubtless the most successful one on record. Hu has been taught In pounce upon a mouse in short ordei, wiihont fear and without favor, and he shows no mercy. Of course, he ean follow the mouse into close quarters, and never lias been known to lose his quarry. Strange to relate, large rats hove g'veu the house the go-by also, seeming lo understand that the place belongs toKlxar, and That there must bo no encroachment upon his perogaDve. Venezuela, says the States, ia thankful for the firm stand the Pres ident has taken in support cf the Monroe docliine, and Is desfrioiiy"*' showing her gratitude by ey ° t Knglish cotton goods her markets open to the product of American looms. This movement) on the part of Venezuela should be encouraged l>y our manufacturers, and if energedc steps art taken to supply the Venezuelan merchants with the kind of goods suit tattle to their trade, our exports to that coun try will be largely Increased. It is pretty safe to say Reed’s presidential boom has In hard hit. His purpose to electi. fy the country with a dramatic rush to the rescue of a bleeding Country, and with a high-minded uplifting of self and party above all partisanship, has failed. His ranks are broken. Republicans are denouncing the Revenue bill which was designed to destroy McKinley and make Reed,and the powerful grasp which the speaker is supposed ToTiuVr'upon a bust-* ness Congress has been shown to he non-existent. The attorney general has ex pressed the opinion that whore county superintendents of educiT tion were elected last November to succeed present incumbents who were appointed, the term of such superintendents who were elected does not begin until April 1, and their predecessors hold till that date. The term of the elect* ed incumbents will begin on April 1, and will expire four years from that date. He thinks this is tie only construction that can be given the statute as it stands.— Commercial Appeal. The superintendent of educa tion question has not yet been settled, as both Mr. Stockstill and Mr. Stevenson have been declar ed out. However, Mr. Steven son will be our next superinten dent, either by a vote of a people or the voice of law. Hon. J. F. McCool, of Attala county, was elected speaker of the House of Representative, by that Mississippi body this week, and the comments thereon are wide and favorable. Mr. L. Pink * Smith, of the Greenville Demo crat, Washington county, was elected clerk, i success worthy of the gentleman. An lowa doctor has invented a cure for diptheria, which is administered by inhalation. Its effect is to kill the bacteria, and the Chicago board of health is experimenting with it and the results are of the most gratifying nature. The Biloxi Banner has changed to the Gnlf Coast News, the founder of the paper claiming SSO for the name from the present owner. The Hand'* boro Banner, we understand, will be shortly launched. The New York Evening Post de clares that there arc now 1800 men at work on the Panama canal and that the canal will be in working order on schedule time in 1901.
