President W. W. Finley of the Southern Railway is the last to promise to attend, while J. J. Hill, of the Northern Pacific, and J. T. Harahan, of the Illinois Central, are practically sure to be present. Mauy railroad men, representing the immi gration and traffic departments, are ex pected to attend, while business men from all over the state will be present in large numbers. A conference of Mississippi bottlers was held in Jackson Tuesday, the pur pose of which was to discuss the phase of the privilege tax law passed by the legislature at its last session, greatly increasing the tax on bottlers, and es pecially those putting up Coca-Cola. Municipalities will be asked to not col lect taxes on this class of business, since it is claimed that the state tax and the maximum municipal tax of fifty per cent, of the state tax would make a to tal of prohibitive proportions in many instances. In many sections negro preachers are reported to have taken up large collec tions among the ignorant members of their flocks, on tbs pretext that the money was to be given to “Mr. Halley” as a sort of piacation to prevent the comet from striking the earth, and oth er equally absurd grounds. The money is said to have come in rather freely,and since there is no indication that the earth has been hit very hard, doubtless the donors arc satified with the invest vestraent. N Cy %' & T Hattiesburg, in ‘h'ufto, decided not to etter the raAe 'rt. engross in the sixty dis trict, from which B, J. Bow r ers wis vol untarily retire at\sae expi ratify of his present term. AK -the same June Hon. E. M. Barber, of Biloxi, announced his own candidacy. Other announced can didates are Hon. J. M. Talley, of Hat tiesburg, and Hon. B. P. Harrison, now district attorney in this coast district, and Hon. Frank H. Lewis, of Pasca goula. Walter B. Lyttle, recently convicted and sent to the penitentiary from Lee county on a charge of bigamy, is said to have been a former Philadelphia manu facturer of considerable wealth, who mysteriously .disappeared from there and has since married no less than six different women, the last one being Mi nette Burke, of Tupelo. Members of the Episcopal church all over the State are being urged to aid in raising the balance of $9,000 plenged j be made available by Saturday, May 'B, for All Saints’ College, Vicksburg, most of the money being now due on the building. Bishop T. D. Bratton of Jack son, is in charge of the work. With all the returns in, it is authori tatively stated that the strawberry crop was 25 per cent, short, owing to an early freeze, but that good prices more than made up the shortage. At Madi son, where more than 1000 acres were in cultivation, the receipts were $15,000, and the net profits per acre were from S7O to $125. The Methodist church at Redbone, Warren county, which was occupied during the war by Federal soldiers, has just asked Congress , through a bill in troduced by Senator Percy, to appro priate $2,600 for the use of the structure and to pay the damages to it. It is rumored that the old state house in Jackson may be condemned in emi nent domain proceedings and converted into a union depot for the N. O. G. N., G. & S. 1., and A. & V. railroads, ail of which now use the Illinois Central pas senger station. The Jackson Board of Trade is plan ning to renew its summer excursions over the various lines of railroad enter ing that city, the purpose being to keep in close touch with the people in its trading territory.
