OUR HEW CIRCUIT JUDGE.
The appointment of Hon. K. O.
Sykes, of Aberdeen, to the judgeship
is an admirable one, and a source of
genuine delight to his many friends
and admirers throughout the State.
Judge Sykes is a clean, pure man;
an able lawyer and thoroughly ca
pacitated for the important duties of
the eminent position. The other
distinguished gentlemen who applied
for the place are in every way wor
thy and popular, and especially the
retiring Judge Cayce, but all acqui
esce and gracefully yield to the decis
ion of the Governor. The New Or
leans Pi cayune's Jackson correspond
ent thus speaks of Mr. Sykes: This
appointment is an admirable one.
Ju dge Sykes is arr able and success
ful lawyer. He is an eloquent speak
er, a splendid Democrat, clea , sin
cere, manly, and, best of all, a Chris
tian gentleman. He will honor the
ermine, and reflect credit on the ap
pointing power. While he has de
voted his life to the profession which
he adorns, he has not been unmind
ful of the best interests of his state,
and where Democracy lias most need
ed man his white plume has ever been
seen, nodding always in the forefront
of the hottest battle. A non-office
seekers he has always preferred par
ty unity and the promt ition of friends
to personal prefermen t.

that could not be answered. We have
had free coinage. We have had times
in this country when we legislated
for ourselves and did not ask others

had the erroneous idea that 'free
coinage' meant that every one had
liis own mint to coin his silver. It
means gratuitous coinage.
I want you to r emember that-be

HOPE YOU ARE WRONG
A Le nt the extra session of the
legislature and the proposed new
•capitol building, the Columbus Com
mercial is fernen t the whole ousi
ness. Among other things it says;
"We have been treated to a fake
about every two weeks for a year
past from Jackson about the danger
of the 'old building. ' This adminis
tration is extremely anxious to han
dle the proposed issue of $750,000
of the State's bonds, a.'ul to have the
benefit of dishing out the many jobs
connected with the building of anew
capitol. Dollars to doughnuts, if
this scheme is carried into effect,
there will be scandal enough con
nected with it to make every honest
citizen in the state blush for shame."
' A number of smaller towns and
cities throughont the country have
adopted the curfew ordinance, and
after 9 o'clock, youngsters under 1(!
years of age are taken home by the
police. The Oxford Globe suggests
that the Mississippi legislature take
this subject under serious advise
ment.
The question is will Senator George
tender his resignation at the coming
extra session of the legislature? The
probabilities are that he will not,
but should he do so it is generally
believed up this way that Senator
elect Money will deceive the appoint
ment.

THAT PROMISED PROSPERITY.
The warmth of William J. Bryan's
welcome in New York shows that he
is still very strong with the Demo
cratic masses. Defeat has only en
deared him to them.
It is perhaps well to say even at
this early day that Mr. Bryan may
again become a formidable candid
ate in 1900. The election of McKin
ley has not brought prosperity, and
as some one has truthfully and terse
ly remarked: If McKinley is the ad
vance agent of prosperity, as has
been claimed, then he is a long way
ahead of his country.
Free silver may or may not be a
panacea, but it is evident that the
country has little to expect from the
Republican party. Under the ad
ministration of McKinley trusts and
high tariffs will flourish, and unless
prosperity comes very soon the Dem
ocratic party will ride back into pow
er on the great tidal-wave of 1900.—
New York World.
SOUTHERN COTTON MIFLS.
While the Eastern cotton mills are
closing down and others operating
only four days in the week, the South
ern mills are running on full time
and earning good dividends. This is
due to the fact tiiat the finer grades
of cotton goods witli which the mar
ket is over-stocked, are made in the
East, while the mills in the South
manufacture only the coarser grades
and find a very ready sale for all they
can make. This leads the Philadel
phia Record to believe that Eastern
capital is bound to flow Southward
and the industrial fabric of this sec
tion of the country will build itself
up along natural lines without rely
on the federal government to
help it to prosperity.—New Orleans
States.
mg
ONE THING HOPED FOR.
The administration now drawing
to a close will be remembered, in ad
dition to other reasons, for that it
has put up with wrong and contume
ly to Americans abroad unknown to
any previous administration; and
that it has beyond previous record
caused Americans to blush witli
shame for the cowardly way in which
Insults and injuries have been accept
ed without so much as an effort at
self-defense, or even so mcch as a
word of remonstrance. And if the in
coming administration shall change
this craven attitude and shall exhib
it manly self-assertion whenever and
wherever American citizens are
wronged and American rights are
over-ridden, it will without doubt
be a successful and a popular admin
istration, and Democrats as well as
Republicans will rally to its support.
The Times-Domocrat has certainly
no predilections in favor of either
McKinley or McKinleyism; but if
McKinley upholds the dignity of the
American flag wherever it is assailed
with insult or with wrong, the new
President will have no more strenu
ous supporter in that feature of lii.s
policy than this paper.—Times-Dem
ocrat.
MCKINLEY'S CABINET.

Secretary of State—John Sherman,

Attorney General—Joseph McKen

Mr. E. J.' Green, a prominent mer
chant of Rienzi goes to St. Louis
every year to buy goods. Says A1
len, West & Co. handed him a mes
sage direct from President Cleveland
stating he had recalled Consul-Gen
eral Fitzb ugh Lee from Havana and
selected Capt. Thad Beall to take
his place. As soon as Mr. Green
handed the dispatch to your valua
ble correspondent, he boarded the
train for Booneville, having then
procured a turnout he hastened fif
teen miles out in the western por
tion of Prentiss county to where the
Captain lives. Your correspondent
was the first to inform the Captain
of the responsible position to which
he was called. When we approach
ed the subject the Captain smiled
and said, he was not all surprised at
reec.'iviug this appointment, in fact,
he had been looking for something
of this nature for several weeks; real
ly ever since Jordan Boone, counsel
for Sanguilly, had petitioned for a
withdrawal of the Sanguilly appeal.
The Captain was a warm supporter
of Palmer and Buckner and expected
the administration to recognize his
valuable services in some substantial
manner.
Captain Bealls war iecord and his
late diplomatic relation with the
Board of Supervisors of Prentiss
county, render turn eminently fit for
the place of Consul-General. The
Captain feels very much humilitated
at the withdrawal of Sangailly's ap
peal. He feels that the Star Span
gle Banner now trails in the dust,
before the "Haughty Hidalgo," and
the "glorious bird of Liberty" is not
anything more than a lone turkey
buzzard on a blasted pine tree. We
judge iron the lightning flash in the
Captain's eyes that the Spanish won't
have a "walk over" when the Cap- j
taut gets to Cuba. Mrs. Beall will
accompany the Captain.
Brother Tater Smith at last has
yeifed to his friends and will sail with
Captain Beall as his private secreta
ry. Brother Smith was reluctant
