Some friend of Mr. Barber, who to the Biloxi Herald, is not no lv indiscreet in his assertions, hut ignorant' of the position and Attitude of hi chosen candidate. u 0 „(*tn to have a grudge against the Gulf* Ship l**lnd Railroad Company about some charges ou and on household goods mid j,, , u( .pets that- the people of the District execute that grudge for him hv voting against Captain jiaiiiv and Mr. Bowers and by voting f ur Mr. Barber. This forceful and logical corres pondent savs that Captain Hardy } s the father of the Gulf & Ship Kailroad, and Mr. Bowers, (beingits attorney), is its adopted hoii: therefore the people must nnt vote for thorn but must vote /nr man who lias nothing what ever to do with railroads, viz., Mr. Barber. This would be anachronistic and fraught with a vile logic if all that the correspondent says was true, hut unfortunately for him and his candidate he is not posl wl concerning the matters about which he writes. Mr. Barber is a railroad lawyer, and one of the attorneys of the Louisville & Nashville Railroad Company, a corporation ten to twenty times as large us the Gulf & Ship Island Railroad Cos., and this correspondent ought to have known it, if he didn’t. His ignor ance on this subject may, howev er, bo attributable to Mr. Barber’s failure to give publicity to that fact in his speeches in which ho Insisted that the people ought not jo vote for railroad laujiui's, or those connected with railroads, for Congress. But since the speaking at Augusta in Perry county, we thought every one knew Mr. Barber was n railroad lawyer, because at that place he was forced to admit, in reply to questions from Mr. Bowers, that ho was the attorney of the Louis ville & Nashville Railroad at Bi loxi. The writer noticed that Mr. Barber avoided any allusions to railroad matters in his speech in in this city and we understand ho has avoided, it ever since the ex pose at Augusta, and would sug gest that his indiscreet friend would be wise if he followed his example. But this correspondent scerns not only to be ignorant of Mr. Barber’s connection with rail roads, but he would have one be lieve that Mr. Bowers is largely interested pecuniarily in the Gulf and Ship Island. He says, in sneaking of Captain Hardy and Mr, Bowers, ‘‘they don’t own the road, but Bowers bus stock in it.” Git possible that this correspon dent knew the facts when he wrote to the Herald. If so, would he have made so much fuss over the ownership of a single share of 'lock of the par value of One hundred dollars (for that is the exact amount of Mr. Bowers’ holdings either in the stock or bonds of the Gulf & Ship Island, or any other railroad company). If there is a citizen in the dis trict who proposes to vote against Mr. Bowers because he has at tained .eminence and distinction ln .bis, profession, and has, by his ability and his attention to busi npss attracted the attention and t'inplo.vmeiit °f great interests, or •eeause be is the owner of One hundred dollars worth of stock in ? 1 Steal enterprise, we assume Mr, "ewers can afford to do without his vote, wo should advise him as 0 such that, “Ephraim is join ' tn his idols let him alone.” E.

MON. A. J. RUSSELL DEAD. Mississippi House of Representatives Found Dead in Mis Room at Oxford. Hon, A. J. Russell of Meridian, speaker of the Mississippi House of Representatives, who delivered the annual oration at the Univer sity of Mississippi Tuesday was found dead iu his room Wednes day morning at Oxford. His death was caused by heart failure. • Col. Russell was forty-live years of age and was married to Miss Annie Givhan in Pontotoc, Miss. Their union was blessed with one son, Clifford, and throe daughters one attending Virginia College at Richmond. He was a prominent Elk, Mr-] son. and Knight of Pythias. Hcl was born in North Alabama, I where his father was a Baptist' preacher. Ilis mother now resides in Paris, Texas. His brothe.% Col. E. L. Russell, formerly pre sident, now general counsel of the Mobile and Ohio Railroad, resides in Mobile; another brother resides at Beard, Texas. Deceased was once district at torney for the northern portion of the State, was mom tier of the Legislature for six years and Speaker of the House of Repre sentatives for two terms. At the 1 time of his death ho was counsel 1 in Mississippi for the Mobile and j Ohio Railroad. He was aproba-j ble candidate for Governor. Judge Russel was one of the best known men in the State, and was a lawyer of much ability, highly cultured Christian and gen tleman, loved by every one who knew him. His remains wore sent to his home in Meridian on a special train on the Alabama and Vicks burg railroad, Hon. E. J. Bowers. From th Mown, Columbia, May 30. This paper has long hesitated since the Beginning of the Con gressional race in this district to announce its favorite for Congress by reason of the fact that all three of the announced candidates for this position were so endeared to us by ties of consanguinity and friendship, that wo hesitated to express an opinion. All of the candidates—in their previous pub lic utterances—promise to do eve rything possible towards the ad vancement of every good thing for the district, and no doubt but what all promises would be made good so far ns in them lay. This is an important era in the histo ry of this section of our State, and Mr. Bowers, through his long connection with the administrative Sowers of the State, both in the enate and House—being an hon ored member of the House of Re presentatives from Hancock coun ty at the present writing, bo is in u better position we think to do our distnot more good in Congress than any of the three men now announced for that position. Mr. Bowers says he stands squarely on the Democratic platform, favor ing liberal appropriations for the harbors on our Gulf coast, the improvement and cleaning out of the various rivers entering into the Mississippi sound, the dredg ing of the bars of said rivers, the establishment of sufficient and well-equipped experiment stations all through the pmoy woods; the erection of such public buildings as the public buildings shall war rant, and the general internal im provement of the district. Doubt less all the other candidates have and will declare for the carrying out of these things, but wc believe that Mr. Bowers, if elected, would bo better enabled to carry out his promises than many who have promised and have never paid. Our Choice. Prom the Waynesboro Beacon, May 31. The Beacon believes that Mis sissippi, and especially the Sixth district, will need the best men available in the halls of Congress next yeas. The immediate future of the State is fraught with the greatest interest, and we need men in the national capitol who can grasp the situation and who are a6le and courageous enough to stand up for and fight for the rights of not only this State and section, but of the entire South. Great questions will come up— political and economic which must be solved, and we must have men ou the scene wheoare capable of and are willing to help solve them. Wo need men there who will not only be able to cope with great financial and others ques tions of State, but who can and will defend the fairest section of God’s footstool against the on slaughts of Republican demago gues and South-hating mounte banks who never tire of abusing and insulting the manhood and womanhood of the groat and prosperous South. In such a man we find the Hon. E, J, Bowers, of Hancock, who aspires to the distinguished posi tion of representing the Sixth Mississippi district in Congress. We have hesitated sometime be fore taking a decided stand on this question. ‘Mr. Bowers has two able and worthy opponents in the persons of Captain W. H. I Hardy and Hon, E. M. Barber, both of whom have announced their candidacy through the col umns of the Boocon. Exercising our right, however, as a free American citizen, and j having nothing but the best inter ests of the State at heart, we have i reached the honest conclusion that j Mr. Bowers is the man to send to j Congress, and we believe the peo ! pie of Wayne county will agree j with us and line up for him on the | tiflh of August next. ! He is not only an able, honest, j conscientious man, but bo is self made, a man of the people and for the people —* one who will ( stand up for them and fight their I battles when they need at tention at his hands. His record in the House and .Senate of the State is a brilliant one, and wo predict that if sent to Congress ho i will make a record Jthat not only [ tins State but for the whole South will be proud of. With those convictions, there i fore the Beacon does not hesitate to place at its masthead the name of Hon. E. ,)..Bowers of Hancock as its choice for Congress from congress from this the Sixth Mis sissippi district. Two Remarkable Miracles In a Cath olic Church at Martinique. Castries, St. Lucia, May 31. Sisters of the order of Do la De liverance, who have arrived here from Martinique, tell a wonder ful story of the preservation of Morno Rouge ana bear witness to two miracles enacted during the eruption of Mt. Pelec. Al though Morno Rouge was within the fire zone it was not harmed. As proof that a Divine Providence directed the lava flow and torna dic blast away from the town this remarkable story is told by the j sisters: “The members of the election campaign for House of Eriw.li Deputies on the Socialist side were very strong, in St. Pierre, and there wore 400 of them in Morno Rouge, who denounced the Catholic clergy and threatened the sisters' lives. Night and day they sang ribald campaign songs, blas phemous printed proclamations. The blacks threatened to seize the church and turn it into a theater and St. Pierre cathedral into a dancing hull. “Sister Mario I’lnfant Jesus was the spokeswoman of the holy sisterhood. Wo were in deadly fear of our lives, and for two days and nights stayed in I lie church of Notre Dame do la Deliverance, Morno, Kongo praying. “When the mountain began rumbling and the smoko came on the morning of the catastrophe, Fr. Mario celebrated mass at 6, Fr. Bruno celebrated second mass at 7:30 o’clock. It was hardly over before the people of the town began flocking in terror to the church. Not all the holy wafers being used in communion, and ho began distributing thorn. “Suddenly appeared before the altar a vision of the Savior allow ing the sacred heart. The mem bers of the congregation, kneeling cried to each other, 'Voyez vous le sacred coeur!’ The vision was sad-faced and wan. "Wo emerged to see a terrible cloud, accompanied by thunder and lightning, rollidgdown Pelec, almost over over our heads, upon ; the city of St. Pierre. The whole i place was lighted up by fires. It was the most awful spectacle the human eye ever witnessed. Wc thought the end of the world had come. Wo remained at prayer all that day of terror. Fire, steam and boiling mud were all around us, yet Morno Rouge was not touched; not one person lost or harmed. “Anothermiracle that occurred during the awful time was this: We gave out from our small sup ply of paper badges of the Sacred Heart to all in the church, yet, when we had finished wo had as many as when we began. “Our truly blessed Savior ap peared, not only in the vision, but saved our lives in answer to our prayers, and made the wicked suf fer by destruction and awful death Wo remained with the father, helping people get away over a back road on the Jwitidvvard side to Fort de France. Then wo walked all the way ourselves. Fi nally, on May 20, the father and the last four sister left, by order of the French officials. We re moved all sacred vessels and sought safety at Grande Anse. Wc,arc still ignorant of the desert ed town since it was destroyed. Ten of the sisterhood perisheti at St. Pierre; all the others are safe here,” Mother Superior Anselme and Sisters Flaure, Germaine and Margaret all swear they saw the vision. Judge James H. Neville, iu an interview with the Picayune Jack sou correspondent, reproduced iu last week’s Echo, tells a remarka ble story of peace ami plenty, of educational and commercial ad vancement that, comparatively speaking, places the progress and growth of this section second to none in the country. It is a story that tells itself well in terms of eloquence and strength and that cannot but arrest the atten tion of even the casual reader and observer. It has truly been as , sorted that truth is stranger than 1 fiction. CA.BTOXttXA. , Bean the Kind You Haw Always Bought BAY ST. LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI. SATURDAY, JUNE 7. 1902. BOARD OF SUPER..SORS.
