Jackson, Miss., May 6. For heroic and brave action last Thurs day Gov. Stone to-day pardoned J. B. Mcintosh, who is confined in tbeBrookhaven jail for nine months for illicit retailing, and acntenced to pay several heavy fines. When th,e While Caps appeared, it being known that Mcintosh was a brave and fearless man, a gun was placed in bis hands with instructions to shoot when necessary. He pre vented several of the White Caps from scaling the jail wall by his coolness and determination. Theyoungmen andyoung women who aspire to obtain Academic or College educations, and whose parents cannot well aflord them that expense, will be interested ir the work of the CosmnpolitanMaga xine, which bas offered for the year 1803 one thousand scholarships at any of the leading colleges or schools of the United States, upon the condition of introducing the magazine into certain neighbor hoods. Vale, Vatsar, Harvard, Ann Arboi, Chicago, the Southern colleges, the great schools of art and medicine, all are alike open to th ambitious boy or girl who is not afraid of a little earnest work. The Cosmopolitan sends out from its New York office a handsomely printed pamphlet to any applicant, telling just what is necessary in order to secure oneof these scholar ships. The scholarship itself in cludes board, lodging, laundry and tuition all free. Between Two Fires. Indianapolis, Ind., May 3. The local papers assert that Gen.IIarn on is undecided as to whether he will attend the National League meeting in Louisville next week. This is probably a mistaken state ment of facts. The ex-President will not be there, so the American Press cor respondent ia informed by good authority, but it is not because he has consulted his own wishes in the matter. The fact is that the ex-President is very anxious to at tend the meeting. It is said that the elements have been trying to enforce from him the promise he will remain at home. One of these, of course, is the Harrison crowd, who can see nothing in his prospect ive visit but s Harrison boom for 1894, and their opposition to his presence is being attacked by no less a personage than ex-Cbairman Clark son. They are saying that it would be bad politics for Harrison to show himself. The other ele ment comprises the best friends of the general who have never lost bop that he may duplicate Cleve land's career, but they are inolined to favor a still hunt for the nomi nation rather than a wboop and hurrah campaign. They argu that bis presence would excite the ani tnosity of the anti-Harrison ele ment, and would cause an opening cf all the old sores. Thus it will be seen that witb the antis opposing his presence, and some of his friends advising against il, there is little likelihood of his attending the meeting. ' rtLwi A? a.

Unless some kind of organized effort is made, mir portion of the State will labor under a disad vantage, as tbe East Mississippi Association has entered upon its work with an earnestness that will have the tendency to turn the drift of the immigration to our State in that direction, unless our section be brought into greater prominence. It is by such associations, largely, that certain portions of Louisiana have been "built up so rapidly with, in the last ten or twelve years. Gov. Foster, of that State, is quoted as making the following statement during his attendance upon theim migration cunven ion at Richmond, Virginia: "In certain portions of Louisiana there has been a great deal of im migration from the North. It has been beneficial In the highest de gree. The section most sought by these people from the North is west of the river. There is one parish in which the valuation is increased from $800,000 in 1880 to $0,500,000. That is due to the immigration to this parish. I went through there in 1880, and again in the last cam paign. I recall one piece of land which could have been bought on the occasion of my first visit, in 1880, for 50 cents an acre. When I was there most recently, I priced that same land, and found it was held at $100 an acre. That, of course, is an exaggeration of the general situation, but tbe increase in the valuation for taxing purposes of from $800,000 to$6,500,000 shows the development. This is in a section of which we expected very little. It has turned out to be an excellent farming region." While it might not be possible to accomplish such great results in any one of tbe counties named, yet, by persistent and organized effort, a great work may be accomplished, in the way of locating some of the home-seekers who are deserting the cold North, and coming by the hundreds to our sunny Southland. The Banner would be pleased to hear from the editors of the several papers in the counties named, apon the subject of holding a meeting during the press convention to dis. cuss the proposed Southwest Mis. sissippi Immigration Association. e The Banner's Suggestions In dorsed. The Port Gibson Reveille in dorses The Banner's suggestion for organizing a Southwest Missis sippi ImmigrationAssociation, say. la 1: i.-.g: "Tt Kal-h.fi Biuoer S'Jfgdt the formation of aa iairignvtion association for the river counties frjta Claibrae down to Wilkinson and including a'o Frack'.ig and Amite.

Other parts of the Stale are j There bav been so many errone. moving ia tbe matter of western immigration. Tbe bluff counties, which potsess some of the best lands in the State, should not be behind the others." Tbis is tbe right kind of talk and ; if the papera in the counties of Jefferson, Franklin, Wilkinson and j Amite will utter the same kind of; sentiments, it will be an easy mat ter to organize the association. Il will cost little more to advertise tbe six counties proposed, than it will to advertise one county, and by combining our funds a great deal of advertising can be accomplished with a comparatively small amount of money from each county. Let us come together during the press con vention and consider tbe matter by all means. Another Editor Favor the Movement. Fditor Y. D. Butler, of the Mead- ville, Franklin county Advocate, indorses our suggestion to organize Southwest Misit)ippi Immi gration Association. In a private letter from him he says: "I have received a copy of The Natchez Evening Banner, of date April 24th, containing an editorial on "An Immigration Association" for Southwest Mississippi. Am deeply interested in the subject and hope to attend the Press Con vention in Natchez, 10th of May, when I trust such an association will be organized." We published an article from Editor Wharton, of the PortGibson Reveille, indorsing the movement. This insures the Press of Adams, Claiborne, and Franklin counties, in support of the movement. The Press of Jefferson, Wilkinson and Amite can, doubtless, be enlisted, and with the press in favor of the time should be allowed for debate association and organized to put it on a tariff measure, but all efforts on foot, there is every hope of; t obstruction should be, and I bo succeis. All preliminaries for work- lieve will be, promptly squelched." .ii s it ing to mat ena can oe arranged nere during the Press Convention, by fixing a time for county meetings to select delegates to a convention to be held, for effecting a permanent j m,)8l o lhe appointments will be organization. It will be the duty i raado by President Cleveland with of the newspapers in the several j the next few weeks. In this counties then to go to work in ' connection it may be interesting to earnest, to work up the sentiment among the people, in order to make the thing a success. We will be pleased to hear from the editors of the other three coun-1 ties on the subject.

The free eold now amounts to about $3,000, 000, and there is a very marked decrease in the demand for gold for shipment to Europe, while offers for gold continue to be made to tbe Treasury. It is now also known ous statements printed about the amount uf gold in the UuitedStates that the official figures in the latest statement, issued this week, are herewith presented. The total amount of gold coin known to be in this country is 1532.513, IO-"), and of gold bullion, the most of which is in the U. S. Treasury, tSO.529,774, making a grand total of $013,042, 879. Of this gold National hanks hold $190,751,183, and private firms $3.18,922,385, according to the last report of the Director of the U. S. Mint. Senator McPherson. who is a member of theSenate Finance com mittee, has been watching the situ ation very closely, and be says of it: "I do not believe there is any thing in the money situation tbnt will necessitate the calling of an extra session of Congress earlier than the President intended about September 15. Tbe financial con dition ef the country is all right if the people will only let it alone The Secretary of the Treasury has the confidence of the public, which believes that he will be able to meet any contingency that may arise." CongresmanJohnDoWitt Warner, of New York, isn't one of those who think it will require six months or more to get the new tariff bill through Congress. He said: "I see no reason why a tariff bill should not be put through in a month or six weeks after the organization of Congress. Th people put the democracy in power with a definite purpose, and that purpose should be carried out. If you hired a con. I tractor to build a house within a tpeuified time, and he failed to keep his agreement, wonld you not look around to get somebody else to tinsh it?

New Jersey, Delaware, Missouri, Vermont, New Hampshire, Cali fornia, Massachusetts, Arkansas, Texas, South Dakota, and Illinois, one each; Indiana, Georgia, Louis iana, and New York, two each; NorthCarolinalour, and Minnesota five. The Consular appointments have gone one each to North Caro lina, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, and Maine; two each to Massachu setts, Missouri, Mississippi, Ohio, and Indiana; and four to NewYork. While that will probably have little to do with the President's se lections, the candidates from those States not mentioned above appear to be more confident than those from the States that have already aecuredsomeoftheseappointments.

This mernieg about 10:30 t j0I n t rate on hay between the u'cIjcSc, while the trial sf a railroad j Illinois Central aad tU Georgia case was in progress, a body of ptcisc railroads was continued un armed men on horseback, about 100 til the next meeting. The annual in number, was seen approaching , the courthouse from the east. Tbe court adjourned in utter confusion, many present leaving for safety, others to arm themselves to pro tect the courthouse and jail. Quicker than it can be written the courthouse was surrounded by tbe mob. Judge Chrisman appeared on the steps leading over the court- home fence, when Rev. J. H. Gam- brell, to whom the leaders of the crowd had announced the purpose to take their friend who are in jail charged with whitecapism home witb them, stated that Judge ChrU- man bad something to say. The fearless judge said: "Every man in jail shall have a fair trial and justice. No innocent man shall suffer and no guilty man shall escape. I want to say to you, if you have come her to take your f: .n .1 ftitft if iiil t...ti will nnt fin il . . j. ... ...... . If vou intend by tins exhibition of . ,:;..,. , you will fail utterly.

P. O. F. way through the fear stricken and j Scranton was selected as next fleeing mob into the jail It was the work of but a short while to drive the mb away. It is learned that the mob was organizod yesterday at Dogwood! church, eleven miles southeast of! here. It is also stated on good authority that onlv a small part ofi,ne mo" ucceslul papers in Ken the mob came to town, the others remaining in the woods, a short distance ont. This afternoon the sheriff, with a posse of fifty men, went in pursuit of the retreating law-breakers, but failed to overtake tbem. Governor Stone was im mediately notified of the situation and came down on the first train to assist in the maintenance of law. Whatever other States may have Mississippi has a governor with a backbone as big as a telegraph pole. The Wesson military company is here to protect the court and jail. The people of Lincoln county ap preciate this prompt response of the Wesson braves in what seemed to be their hour of supreme need. It is rather expected that the while caps will re-inforce and come again, but not in daytime. If they return they will find a well organized com mittee ready to receive them. Forty Springfield rifles arrived here from Jackson this afternoon, to be used by Judge Chrisman's reception committee in dispensing proper hoKpitalities to the lawless. The mob succeeded admirably in one thing. It adjourned the court for the day in short order. The grand jury this afternoon in dicted every member of the mob whose name could be secured. So there will be music in this section in a few days. . At 4 o'clock the citizens met in the courthouse and organized a military company with a very large number of our best citizens on the roll. The people of this city will never be caught again as they were to-day. Governor Stone leaves for Jack son to-night, but will return Mon day and speak to the people of the county on the subject of law and order. He will have a large audience. This ha been the most exciting day this city has known in recent years, if it was ever equaled. It has been a terrible day on the good women who were concerned about husbands, sons and brothers. The people, men and women, are hurrahing for Judge Chrisman. Several times while the brave judge was talking to the crowd he was covered with guns and pistols, and be denounced those who held tbem as cowardly lawbreakers. For some time you.r correspondent expected every moment to see the judge shot down. It was but a short while after the judge and his posso got into tbe jail yard until almost every man and boy in the place was armed witb some kind of weapon. Law is on top in old Lincoln yet.

"Patent Sides." We take the liberty to reproduce lh following article taken from the Carrollton (Ky.) Democrat, one of u,ck3'- II speaks volumes for the Kellogg Ready Print service: One of the leading causes of the Democrat's success as a county paper has been the use of what i. known as the "patent side." After an experience of nearly fifteen years with Ihese ready prints, we are prepared to say that they arc practically indispensable. Nothing has been devised in recent years that contributed to the dissemi nation of general information like these "patent sides." And of all the firiues and com panies engaged in their production, the A. N. Kellogg Newspaper Co. has had the mott signal success, having brought the system to a high state of perfection, and gained a remarkable popularity and patron age. This company has its printing offices in all tbe principal cities ol the United States, and each sup plies a printed side to from 75 to 500 country newspapers. The principal of division of labor is thus applied to the fullest extent. The best editors are employed on all the different classes of pa pers supplied a dozen or more classes; and then each and every department on any particular kind of paper is raanagedby an expert. Every patron of the company, each being a country publisher, thus gets the bennfit of such talent, as do all the subscribers. No editor of a country paper could prepare one-tenth the matter that appears on the patent side, and few of them could do any part of it as well as it is thcre done. The beauty of it is that the coun try publisher has control over that side as well as the home-printed side, he may dictate just what character of matter shall be in serted, and so far as the Kellogg company is concerned may depend upon having his directions follow ed faithfully. The'country publish er simply pays bis money to the company, and gets a liberal ex change ef valuepart paper, part printing, part editorial work, elo. But the chief value of division of labor is that it enables the publisher to look after his local matter, ad vertising and subscriptions with a measure of success which he could not otherwise obtain but his hands are full, nevertheless.
