From Wednesday's Paper.
Columbus Growing. Columbus continues her trium phant march to commercial and industrial greatness. New homes are being constructed, new busi ness houses are goin&r up on every hand: new factories and industries are being projected and the great railroad systems which do not touch the great metropolis of northeast Missis sippi are looking to this city and maturing their plans to come here. Improvements are noted on every hand. Our water sys tem is being brought up the highest staudard of efficiency: miles of handsome cement side walks are being laid; the local light company is preparing for future demands by erecting one of the latest aud most modern systems in the South, and all in terests, both local and private, are booming and prospering. The great inflow of population continues. The skilled mechan ic's services are in demaud here and he finds ready employment. In every line labor is scarce and is in demaud. Our factories an plants are crowded with or ders; the idle capital of the peo pie here is seeking investment in the industrial channels of home; real estate is appreciating and enhancing in value and there is an air of thrift, enterprise, in dustry and prosperity on all hands. With a good cotton and corn crop in this section at the price insured for the fleecy staple by the cotton famine the world over, Columbus aud Lowndes county will prosper as they have never prospered before. Our people are prepared to realize prosperi ty. Adversity has taught them the lesson of provident living and they are prepared for re verses with the prospect of real izing good times ahead. The outlook could not be more propitious. Columbus is rapid ly forging to the front. The Picayuue says: "The first Legislature that assembles in the million dollar State house will mark an epoch in the industrial, political and material life of Mis sissippi. It is gratifying to note therefore, that men of approved ability are being drafted into the service of the State, aud when that body assembles it will pos sess intelligence, progress and patriotism. The State of Mis sissippi has been blessed these four years with a legislature which has for all time left its im print for good. Taken as a whole the Executive branch of the Gov ernment has been tilled, in its various departments, by men of ability aud patriotism, who pos sessed a lofty and abiding pur pose to do everything in their power for the advancement or their State- Mississippi will be fortunate if the next State Ad ministration, executive, legisla tive and judicial, proves as sue cessful in the matter of results as has the present one. The peo ple of Mississippi have the first opportunity of their lives to say directly at the primaries who they want for every office from United States Senator down to beat constable, and whatever mistakes may7 be made, if auy, will be theirs. It behooves them tnerefore, from the highest office to the lowest to choose wisely and well. There are reactions and reac tions. The great reaction which Vardamau's candidacy is sup posed to have caused has come and gone and it finds the people's candidate stronger with the masses than ever. This is the tirst instance in the history of the State when the man in the back woods had had a voice in the selection of State officers. Through the primary law his vote counts as much as the big gest politicians, and he knows it. The many attempts made by the politicians over the State to de feat Vardaman have been foiled aud they have endeared him to the common people closer than ever. The following from the Kosci usko Herald shows how Gov. Longiuo is being received over the State. "Gov. Longiuo spoke to a fairly good crowd here on Friday last iu the interest of his candidacy for the United States seuate, The governor makes a very creditable presentation of his case and convinces people who are not under obligations to him for appointments or other wise, of the wisdom of retaining Senator Money in the United States senate. " Union Lodge No. 35, I. O. O. F., has had erected at Friend ship Cemetery a handsome pa vilion with seats for the accom modation of the people who visit this sacred spot. The pavilion is near the fence and is an orna ment to the cemetery as well as a place of rest much needed. The merchantsand pedestrians and public generally are glad to again welcome street sprinkling, which indicates that the trouble at the waterworks is oyer. Street sprinkling is a public ne cessity and should extend the city over. Registration. As per notice of the County Registrar, J. W. Cooper, the work of registration at the va rious county boxes begins to day when Mr. Cooper will be at Cale donia. There is not a great deal for the registrar todo, the ruling of the Attorney General that all voters would have to be register ed four months before the Au gust primary causing many to reg ister some time ago. Every box in the county will be visited, how ever, and it is believed that a number who have awaited the cominer of the registrar will take advantage of his presence. The registrar will be at Caledonia to day; Lebanon next Friday; Old Zion next Monday the 22 nd; Dearing's Store Wednesday June 24th: Crawford, Friday, June 2'th; Artesia Monday June 29th; Mayhew Wednesday July 1st; Cobb's Switch Thursday July 2nd; Columbus Friday July 3d. In this connection it is inter esting to give a list of the num ber who have registered from the various boxes already which is as follows: Caledonia 368; Colum bus 771 ; Lebanon 147; Old Zion 30; Deariug's Store 30; Crawford 77; Cobb's Switch (52; Artesia 43: Mayhew 36. Total 1564. Col umbo 8 is to have another handsome home. It will be con structed by Mr. W. W. Topp and will occupy tht pretty lot just west of Mr. J. T. Champ neys' home. Mr. Topp's home will be unique in its architectural style, being in the shape of a huge reservoir, with arched front and conical roof and porches all around. He expects to begin work within the next few weeks and to have it com pleted in time to occupy it this fall. A merry party of young peo ple from this city went out to the Prowell home last Monday eveniug and enjoyed supper with the house party at that hospita ble abode. Those who enjoyed the' ride up the river and the pleasures of the occasion were: Misses Walton, Lucile Armour, Emma Armour, Miss Wicks, of Aberdeen; Messrs.

The Dispatch is requested to state by those interested that the barbecue aud celebration at Ko lola Springs on Thursday, July 23d. is a general movement on the part of the people along the line of Clay, Monroe and Lown des counties. All the candidates are invited and expected to be there and (general speaking will be indulged in. Elaborate prep arations are being made and the day will be a gala one.

Wal ter H. Daughety, Z. P. Hartsell, W. W. Perry. At this rneetiug five new applicants were also elected. There seems to be some mis apprehension concerning the date of the Artesia Wood men and Odd Fellow's celebration. It occurs one week from to-morrow Thurs day, the 25th, and not to-morrow as some suppose. The occasion promises to be an enjoyable one and no doubt a large crowd will be present.

Love just south of his residence on South Seventh street being on tire. When dis covered the flames had eaten through the roof and had the en tire second story of the building was enveloped. The tiremen reached the scene soon after the alarm aud had two streams at work in an incredibly short time stopping the tire after it had destroyed the roof aud preventing it from consuming the entire building. The cottage was occupied at the time and while nearly all of the furniture and household ef fects were saved there was some loss of thiners stored in the build iug. Mr. Love was protected by insurance enough to repair the building. The firemen did good work and gave another endorsement of the wisdom of maintaining a paid department. Resolutions of Respect to the Memory of A. G. Easley. For many months past we have been missing the genial pres ence, the pleasant intercourse and the strong leadership of our much loved Superintendent, Brother A. G. Easley who has so faithfully, during au uninter rupted period of twenty years, watched over and directed our Sunday School with all the con stancy and abilty that he pos sessed, but not until the 31st day of May, 1903, did we fully realize the full force of this sepa ration, for on that Sunday our faithful and self-sacrificing lead er took his place which was re served for him in that great school, there to continue to add to his already well stored mind through the endless ages all the unsearchable riches of a happy immortality which is in store for all those who are ready for His appearing. Therefore, be it Resolved 1st. That in the death of Brother Easley our Sun day School has lost its founder, father and leader; our church a devoted otneer aud iaithtul member; the community a public spirited and honorable citizen; his neighbors a con scientious peace-maker, and the Christian world one of the most positive and convincing evidences of the divinity of our religion a simple, consistent, symmetrical, Christian life. 2nd. That we extend to his grief-stricken family, whose loss is irreparable, our sincerest sym pathy, and while we weep with them now that we also indulge with them the hope that one day we shall join him in singing those songs of the other shore. 3rd. Resolved further, That a copy of these resolutions be furnished his bereaved family and a copy to the county papers for publication. W. F. Coopeu, W. D. Phillips, J. W. Coopeu, Committee.

A special from Jacksou to the Picayune : "The city officials are about to ruu the 'negro' who has been dispensing booze to the thirsty people of Jackson, out of his hid ing place. The otiicials for the last two weeks have beeu engaged in a vigorous campaign against the illicit sellers of festive spirits. The colored brothers who pre side behind the bars of the sever al clubs and the blind tigers have ecu A to locate r th rea son that the persons called be fore his honor to testify could only tell that they purchased the whiskey from a 'negro.' Further than this they could not tell. As to his name, his features, they could tell nothing. Now Mayor Hemingway aud Prosecuting Attorney Strieker are asking another question: 'Who did you apply to to get the whiskey that the negro served?' aud this question solves the prob lem. They have to give the name of the person to whom they ap ply to get the whisky, and the persona that the city officials are after have thus been brought io light and will be brought to jus tice. The names of some of the persons whom the police have suspected of running blind tigers aud selling whisky have been given in, aud with them evidence that will convict in the courts.1" Notice.
