I . l ; The Hobson- IJunkhead contro vi'i'sy has again broken out in Alabama, in a card from the Mon i mac hero in which he re Dews the charge that the defeat of the bill for his retirement was brought about by Congressman Bankhead and it is intimated that it was done for political pur poses. Hobson in his card says, referring to beiug forced to re gtijap from the vw y- "Tn thi un happy plight I am cut off from the just relief I had a right to ex pect from my country, and am cut off through the action of my own Representative, whose help I had a right to claim as a con stituent." It is now believed Hobson will enter politics and oppose Bankhead. FOX'S CHALLENGE. We pu blish in full below the letter of Hon. Puller Pox chal lenging Judge Critz to sub mit the matter of their candidacy for Governor to a primary to be run in Clay county. The opinion of the press over the State is tat Mr. Critz will ignore the challenge on the ground that his canvass is about half over and to stake all of his good work upon the result in one county would be manifestly unfair and unjust to him. On the other hand Pox's friends claim that he was forced to issue this challenge by Critz's oft repeated assertion that he had no standing or following at home. Another view of the mat ter presented by papers over the State is that Pox has done him self an injustice in view of his statement that he was brought out by the "bench, pulpit and the plow handle" in going on record as willing to leave it to Clay coun ty, thus plainly ignoring his vast following over the State, while other papers aver that his chal lenge would have come in better grace had it been issued earlier. The following is the letter in full: Oxfohd, Miss. March, 17, 1.K)3. FIon. F. A. Critz, West Point, Miss. Dear Sir In a circular dis tributed through the mails over this State you say that .you had heard of no demands for my cau didacy for the office of Governor in West Point or Clay county. You have circulated the report that you would carry Clay Coun ty almost solidly, and that the 'announcement of my candidacy fell flat in West Point.' "You claim that my announce ment was a great wrong and in justice to you and that it was not warranted or supported by any body, except a certain faction. The speech of Senator Money in the Senate the past week on the Indiauola incident was char acteristic of the man. It wras strong, forceful, logical, but whether itaccomplished any good is a doubtful matter. The India uola incident was quieting down and this speech, we are afraid, will renew republican hostility and the ad ministration's determi nation to keep the office closed. Senator Money's speech will do this much in this State, however; it will stop the criticism of his sileuce on the Indianola incident a silence caused by sick ness and death in his family which over the State was little known. Yea zv 1 I have for many years lived in the same community. The Democrats of Clay county and West Point will not counte nance or tolerate wrong or in justice in anyone. They know us both. They know our person al relations. They fully under stand the conditions under which you declined to run for Congress six years atro. They know the motives which actuated me in entering this contest. They con stitute the best tribunal to set tle any controversy between us. jt. !. jti te fr st". iti. t tK fc SiL 3 a gov Sale!

If vou feel about it as I do, and you are willing to submit to the decision of our neighbors, I respectfully suggest that we unite in a request to the Democratic Executive Commit tee of Clay county to call at an early day, to be named by them, a special Democratic primary election of the county, the ex penses of which shall be paid equally by us, and that we sub mit to the arbitrament of those best qualified to determine the issue between us." A. P. Fox. Senator Money has announced that his political headquarters will be at his home in Carrollton, Miss., and that he will soon begin stumping the State. It is be lieved that Gov. Longino will re sign the Governorship to make his canvass. It is recalled that he pursued this course fouryears ago to canvass for the Governor ship and he occupied a less im portant position than he does now. With Carter Harrison making the tight of his life for re election as Mayor of Chicago; with Gro ver Cleveland making a ''paci fication journey" to the west; with William Randolph Hearst thundering about the principles of Jefferson and Jackson in his three great papers and taking up the people's cause against the trusts the Democratic presiden tial situation is, indeed, interesting. The report of the anthracite coal strike commission has been received. While the report rec ommends an advance of ten per cent in the wages of the miners the recognition of Itheir union by their employees is not passed upon and thus one of the most important contentions of the miners remains unsettled. Justice S. H. Terrall, of the Supreme Court of Mississippi, who retired from that position temporarily a few weeks ago, died last Friday at his home at Quitman, where he had gone to recuperate. This announcement will be received with sorrow over the entire State. The State ticket is not yet made up and from a letter from Ex-Senator W. V. Sullivan to a friend in Laurel it seems the Sen atorial bee is buzzing around him. He states that he may enter the Senatorial campaign against Money and Longino.

Editor Wilkes, of the Biloxi Herald, has entered suit against Editor McKie, of the Biloxi Re view, tor libel in the amount of ten thousand dollars damages. The cause of the alleged libel is the publication in the Review of a criticism of a play at the opera house, which is run by Wilkes, which was said to be false and ibelous. The case attracts some attention on account of the promi nence of the inter repre sented . A special from New York states that Eugene Crawford, a Mississippian, rolled into that city on a special train from Gre nada, Miss., as a result of being left at Memphis. He purchased a through ticket to Jersey City and when his sleeper arrived at Memphis the New York train had departed. He was told to get out and take another train, but told the railroad authorities that his ticket called for a through trip and he refused to move. The officials at Memphis got rid of him by sending him to Atlan ta in the sleeper and there he was sent on to New York in the same car he boarded at Grenada. He paid for one fare but had a sleeper and special engine all the way to Jersey City. He is a part ner in the Newburger Cotton Company and was en route to New York on cotton business.
