Our mobl esteemed local con
temporary, the Progress, in its
issue of last week differs widely
from The Echo’s opinion as to the
choice of sites for the proposed
new slate capitol and has turned
our opinion wrong sido out, so
much so that wo came near believ
ing we were never at Jackson or
visited the capitol, over estimat
ed practicability and patriotism,
The editor of '1 lie Echo has
visited Jackson several times and
the old capitol almost ns often,
from the ground up. Knowing
architects and others who have
well visited the present site know
that this “aggregation marl” is
simply talk originating from those
parties whose interest from a pe
cuniary standpoint has suggested
this in opposition. And suppose
for ouo moment 1 ho site was thus
threatening, would a similar condi
tion elsewhere impede the largest
and heaviest constructions on sites
more available, convenient, or
for other profei ruble reasons
adopted for the purpose? Many
of the city buildings with their
weights of steel and stone
are firm on bods of quicksands
and other conditions equally an
noying. Any architect can suc
cessfully scope with'.the most tiy
ing obstacle of this nature which
goes to make the work of their
pattern stronger.
If Mississippi is to have a mil
lion dollar capitol the size of the
present site will be sufficient,even
in the event of a building -Vlifgcr
than the present,
more spacious would be a
superfluity. The writer’s person
al observation shows that the
capitol of today has lots of its
space allotted to idleness and the
storing of accumulated waste pa
per. Lot the million dollars be
expended to make the now build
ing better and stronger than the
old, —not larger—more attractive
and imposing and to have every
appointment complete.
A country without patriotism or
without that influence to prompt
the commemoration of the memo
ry of its official deliberators would
indeed bo barren of that noble
tenderness and void of human
-feeling, and since a state capitol
could not bo c jnveniontly built on
“another sphere” where “a ma
jority of men who have contribut
ed most toward making the place
famous have been called,” as sug
gested by our confrere, it would
for both practical and sentimental
reasons, be best to have the new
building stand in the place of the
old, the place where in life many
of Mississippi’s most gifted men
have made its history great, glo
rious and lasting.
President McKinley has evinced
the proper spirit and the keeping
of one of the platform pledges
upon which his nomination wits
set by sustaining that the United
States recognize the insurgency
of the Cubans and that his coun
try's flag be not trampled. The
wires this week convey the intel
ligence that the president has
taken stops which would indicate
the first step of a spirited and pro
nounced effort towards the erad
ication of the existing evils a
I pToud nation and great republic
like the United States cannot
countenance aud which must be
repulsed, and the earlier the bet
tor. The president this week sent
to the island a special commis
sioner in the person of William D.
Day, of Ohio a personal friend of
his aud a lawyer of no mean abil
ity, who sailed to investigate the
recent murder of Dr. Kuiz. On
the result of this investigation we
can expect much, and that Judge
Day will work sincerely and make
a thorough representative of the
president can be vouched for, nd
it envolves a great responsibility#
President McKinley’s future plaflL
regarding this question by tho en
tirety of the special cotuinisEion
or’s labors.
President McKinley’ ambition
is to increase our territory by an
nexe!! m, 1 and Hawaii and Cuba
are expected to bo under the pro
tecting care of Uncle Kant before
the end of this administration.
Persons near to the now president
and his advisors say that this is
tho hope and expectation of the
new adii.init tration. It is an in
teresting fact that if Johnson’s
administration bo cnnsidercu dem
ocratic, and it was so regarded by
the republican party at tho time,
no federal, whig or republican
president has ever extended Ibo
area of the republic. All expan
sion of tho territory of tho Unit
ed States have boon uttdor demo
cratic administration.
Jefferson brought us the vast
domain of Louisiana, stretching
from tho dead waters of (lie Yel
lowstone* to the doit a of tho groat
Mississippi; Monroe added tho
Floridan; Polk welcomed tho Lone
Star republic to tho Union, and
conducted the war with Mexico
which gayo us Alta, California,
New Mexico and the dependencies
from the Pacific to the Rockies;
Under Pierce tho Oregon bound

Hard on the Ulch.
These are hard times for rich
people, say* a wrHcr in Collier's
Weekly. If they spend money
freely they are ostentatious. If
they spend little they are held as
miserly; if they give freely wo are
told that they are pauperizing t he
poor; if they giro sparingly they
are moan and heartless. The pro
per way to handle large fortunes
doesn’t seem to be understood ox
oept by people who are without
fortunes, and these disagree so
dreadfully that the rich man in a’
quandary doesn’t know which to
believe. The only point on which
critics are agreed is that those who
have a lot of money shouldn’t
have it, and that there are to bo
some method of taking it away
from them without landing the
takers in jail. If the rich , man
invests his money in business en
terprises ho is a grasping capital
ist who ought to bo suppressed by
law; if he puts it into securities
which yield less interest than the
poor man’s savings hank deposit
he is a laz> coupon-clipper and a
bloated bondholder. And yet,
despite all these penalties of
wealth, every man you meet is
doing his best to become rich, and
won’t remain otherwise a single
clay longer than he must; and
when be makes his pile he acta as
if ho deserved it and know how to
use it, although he uses it just as
money was used by men whom ho
once criticised.

Moral legislation is getting to

A bill to prohibit the sale of

Tho‘‘papa of waters” with its
annual rise is doing much damage

The recent crusade against the
civil service law inaugurated in the
senate by Senators Allen and Gal -
linger make a brief summary of the
classified service of interest. The
whole nnml) of places in the civil
service of the government is 178,717
of which 87,107 arc in' the classified,
and 91,610 are in the unclassified ser
vice. Of this latter number 66,725
are postmasters of the fourth class.
The aggregate compensation paid in
the executive civil service during the
last fiscal year was apprexim tlel j
8100,000,000. There hre about 10,-
000 persons now appointed by the
president and the number Is increas
ing each year. The civil service
commission says that in e few years
it will be absolutely impossible for
tbe president and the cabinet officers
to hear all applicants for positions
and a repeal of the four years tenure
in these places will be necessary.
During the last year 31,270 persons
were examined for the classified ser
vice and 20,493 passed successfully.
Of the successful contestants only
5,084 were appointed.

tho committee and those present were
Just a quorum. Governor McLau
rin Imil met with them and laid be
fore the committee several plans.
Chairman Houston and Messrs, Sto
vail, Anderson and Champion weto
appointed a special committee to
draft a bill on the lines which were
suggested hy the governor. Tho
committee was unanimous in approv
ing the suggestions of the governor,
and are highly hopeful of believing
the llnanolttl embarassmeat that now
confronts the state and thinks relief
can he had without placing unci bur
den upon the lux payers which will
be h'ghly gratifying to the lux pay

that tuxes are already 100 high. Af

tee adjourned to meet on the morn

mittee met again on the 24th the spe
cial committee submitted a bill which
was in accord wltii the governor’',
suggestions nod adjourned.
ernor says he will call a io> ,
■e senate: \vtP - u,,
t'l^j.ernes'- nuance committee next
week to puss upon the bill. The fi
nance committee is composed of Sen
ators W. F. Love, W. 11. Hardy, M.
F. Smith, W. I?. Trigg, W. N, Koi
gcr, Irvin Miller and O. W Kills.
Senators Love and Kills have resign
ed since the adjournment of the leg
islature. Senator Love was chair
man, but Senators W. 11. Hardy
will occupy this position. It is gen
erally conceded that the governor
has acted very wisely in calling the
ways and means committee and the
senate finance committee to formu
late hills before assembling the leg
islature. This, no doubt, will be a
great saving to the state as a good
portion of the work that will come
up for the extra session will bo very
well arranged and will enable the leg
islature to gel through in a much
shorter time.

that Mississippi cannot afford <•

heavy increase in the -apwoprialions

to the prohibition sentiment, a 81,
000,000 capitol could be erected
without additional taxation. As it
is. a 1 mill tax, levied for four suc

If a I mill tax for four years will
