THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH.
Entered at the i-ovtotSee in Columbus, Miss., as second-class niiiil matter. jP W. Maer, Lessse an tf Manager. THE FAIR ASSOCIATION. The Dispatch wishes to con gratulate the officers and direct ors of the fair association and all who worked so well for its suc cess upon the outcome of their efforts. The fair was a success in every particular and the asso ciation has every reason to felici tate itself upon the resul. The exhibits were good, affording an interesting and instructivstudy of the various resourcetf this section, the sport was hbrdthful and exhiiirating and the attend ance was fine. The outcome of this thfourth fair warrants the belief t'at the interest iu the association's ef forts is not only sustained' but is increasing. The attendance here this fall was larger. than it has ever been before and jt justi fies the belief that if a little more capital was put into the or ganization and its plans were laid out on a more elaborate scale the fall fair would . attract thousands to this city, and it would be a successful revenue producer. This fact is apparent to every man. Not a business house in Columbus has not felt the.stimu lus of the receqt celebration in its business; not a hotel or;board ing house here was not taxed to its capacity. Every visitor left within his path a goodly sum of money and this will remain here. As a business venture the re turn justifies the expense and work incident to carrying the undertaking through and the association ..should by some means or another make am-ple preparations tinanciaJly for un dertaking the next fair on a larger and greater scale. THE DUST DEVIL. Columbus has the Dust Devil with her always. So pronounced has become his operations the past week that it has moved thousands to complain and hun dreds to suggest remedies. The remedy lies in the action of the Council. Columbus has grown large enough to warrant a'street sprinkling department, organ ized on a business basis and operated like any other depart ment of the city government. This has been the solution of the problem in other places and the only solution and it will be the only solution here. The present plan of sprinkling is a private enterprise but it has never proved especially remu nerative to its owners and they doubtless would be elad to turn over their equipment to the city for a reasonable compensation and give up their work. Then the city could augment the present equipment, increase the present facilities and undertake sprinkling upon an efficient and larger scale. All people use the streets, vehicles and pedestrians alike, and citizens jand taxpayers generally would cordially endorse and approve the organization of such a department in the city government. Parker may not be elected. but you can bet youl- bottom COTTON FACTOBIES IN THE SOUTH. Huntsville, Ala., has been re garded as the great cotton manu facturing town of the South. Tier success in securing the loca tion of a large number of north ern mills has been pointed to with pride and held up all over this country as an example for enterprising towns in the South to emulate. Her success has been an incentive for ambitious cities every where to follow in her path and many a place has strained every nerve and em ployed every resource to secure some of the great textile institu tions which are looking for a solution of their labor and sup ply problems in this section in view or wuat lias oeen accom plished in Huntsville it is a dis tinct shock the South over to see a Huntsville paper charging al most every crime in the deca logue to her industrial enter prises and to deplore the fact that they were ever located then. The following are ex tracts from the Tribune of that city and are passages from a leading editorial bearing the cap tion, "We Want No More." "Huntsville has all the cotton factories we ever want. What we have we have to abide with, but God forbid we should ever have another. There are more reasons than one for this. In the first place they are immorality factories which is superinduced by starvation wages; theiy do not pay labor enough to support it, hence the burden must at some time fall on some one. A little trade can he eked out of the multitude; a little living accorded the aggregation. When you are afflicted with cotton mills, it is li ke having the English sparrows, all other birds, all other indus tries go around you. As our cotton mills grew in number. our iurniture lactones, our spoke and handle factories de parted. All that we had that paid living wages left us. strange tms is, but it appears to be the history of all countries and cities; nothing can or will live with a cotton factory town Let New England keep her facto ries, let material out of which mill hands are made remain in the old fields as of yore, where they enjoyed greater virtue, greater health, greater prosperi ty, and the country enjoyed it with them. If the hands em ployed in the mills of Huntsville, with equal industry, half the re quired economy, were back again in tne Healthful fields. producers of agricultural pro ducts, they would be far more healthful, virtuous and valuable to country. Today Huntsville is at the mercy of the mills politically, financially and to a vast extent morally. The recent mob violence showed the possi bility of an army of evil doers from so vast an aggregation of citizens. Let financial disaster, a strike, a fire, an epidemic oc cur at the mills, and Madison county would have to appeal to the world for help. We could not bear the burden.". This is a terrible indictment to bring against the cotton mills, but it is difficult to conceive of any motive which would prompt a reputable paper to make an at tack upon a large class of its people unless it was warranted DEMOCRATIC ELECTORS. The presidential election is approaching and as our friends, the enemy, have frequently used Mississippi's light vote as cam paign thunder in support of their claim for . a reduction of Southern representation in Con gress, it is desired that the State should poll a big vote in the ap proaching election. In this connection it is well for all democrats to familiarize them selves with the democratic elec tors which they are expected to vote for. There are four sets of electors on the blanket ticket and the democratic ten are the tirst ten on the ticket. They are E. O. Sykes Jr., H. M. Quinu, Q. O. Eckford, S. I). M. Featherston, A. J. McCormi"-k, J. L. Sea wright, O. Mclihenny; C. S. Street, W. A. Dickson and Pat Henry. The Constitutional amendment to be voted on is a simple one and is for the pur lose of striking from theCcnstitutiou of the State that section which;; requires the legislature to provide for the enumeration of the inhabitants and qualified electors of the State every ten years after the 1st Monday in June 1895. The next State enumeration, if this amend ment is defeated, will occur next year and inasmuclias the Federal government provides for the cen sus every ten years a State enumeration is expensive and unnecessary. , B , , .N. f WdDftfm Kpfliiw- ' I We are building a business structure on the great and strong power of Quality.

N. Butler, of McBee, Ala., have been spending the past week in Columbus en joying their honeymoon.

Daring their stay in Columbus Mr. and Mrs. Butler paid The Dispatch an appreciated visit. Mr. James Murphy, a well known young man of the Caledo dia neighborhood. died last Wednesday afternoon at the home of his father, after a linger ing illness of fever. The de ceased was in the prime of young manhood and his untimely death is a shock and blow to his rela tives and friends. The funeral was held on Thursday afternoon, the interment occurring at the Vaughan grave yard. Many friends sympathize with Mr. Murphy in his sorrow. Prof. J. G. II. Buck, of Pales tine, Texas, has been in Colum bus the past week yisiting rela tives and friends here. Prof. Buck is back home the first time in forty-four years and many of the old familiar faces and scenes have been swept from view since he was last here. He is an uncle of Messrs. Jas. G. and , Will Woods of this county Columbus as a Cattle Market. It is no Lew thing for strang ers to praise Columbus, but the visitors who were in the city last week in attendance upon the fair were unusually extravagent when extolling the merits of our city and the surrounding terri tory. Among the horse ami cattle owners here were men who have traveled extensively and who are thoroughly acquainted with the resources of the diiTer- eut sections of the country. These men all agree that the territory surrounding Columbus is as rich and as fertile as is to be found any where in the coun try. One prominent stock man said- "I was bor n across the water and have traveled from one end of America to the other, but never in my life have I seen a more fertile country than that which surrounds Columbus, and that it is especially adapted to stock raising is evidenced by the large number of exhibits in that department at the fair. You have on exhibition here some of the finest hogs that I ever saw in my life, and 1 know from personal experience that cattle raised in the territory surrounding Colum bus have brought fancy prices in St. Louis and other Western mar kets during the past few years. The only trouble here is that too much attention is paid to cotton. If less cotton and more cattle were raised here there would be more rich farmers than there are today. You have a fine cattle country here, and its resources ought to be developed." The sentiment expressed in the above paragraph was endors ed by every cattle man present, and these men, most of whom have made cattle raising a life study, all agree that we have a country especially adapted to that pursuit and that fortunes await those who will be tirst to enter the field.
