There are nearly 50 columns of homo
advertisements in the three Ida Drove
papers and only about four in the
Magnolia paper. Now lot us compare
the patrons. In Magnolia is u very
extensive and well to do merchant by
the name of Atkinson. He is worth
probably 150,000. He owns numerous
buildings in the town, in one of which
is the printing offico, containing a very
able and worthy oditor, with a good
printing outfit. This merchant wanted
everal thousand counter cash slips
printed a short time ago, and sent to
New Orleans for prices. Ho then goes
in the printing office and gets prices,
which are only fifty cents higher than
Netv Orleans prices, but be sends the
job to the latter place. There are
other equally provoking instances that
have come to our attention. With
that class of people is it any tvondi r

Magnolia editor had sent off to New
Orleans to get his wife a dress, and
had he done so would have savod $3,
this man Atkinson would have stormed
into that printing office and demanded
a higher rental, or get out. There are
too many just such parallel cases as
these in Mississippi.”

Presisdent Cleveland is being impor
tuned to call an extra session of con
gress, and the presence of ex-speaker
Crisp in town started a rumor that ho
had so decided. If he has he has not
made the decision public. There is
little doubt that Mr. Cleveland would
call an immediate extra if he knew
that it would promptly repeal the
Sherman Silver law, but of that ho is
not certain, and a refusal to repeal
might have a had effect oft the finan
cial situation, which has not been af
fected by the Wall street excitement
during last week. Many democrats
express the opinion that it would be
the proper thing at this time to call
an extra session and throw the respond
j sibility of maintaining the govern
| ment credit upon Congress, but they
I also express their confidence in the
- President's ability to do the right

since a local paper printed a list of

“Secretary Lamont.” said a New
Yorker to your correspondent, has no
intention of remaining in tho cabinet.
Ho only accepted a portfolio as a fu
| V01‘ t0 his old friend, the President,
and with an express understanding that
j he would resign as soon as certain
j work done in which he was to
: take part. Exactly what that work is
I don t think any body, except Dan
and Mr. Cleveland, know; but there
are good i eatons to suppose that it re
lates Irrgely to the federal appoint
ments—the prominent ones, 1 mean_
are made, I am under the impression
that Secretary Lamont will resign and
resume his connection with the Whit
ney street railway syndicate, where
his salary was more than three times
what ho now receives. Secretary J,; -
rnont declines to discuss the probabi.
ity of-his early resignation, dismissing
inquiries with the statement that ho
has no present intention of resigning.
But there are other things which point
to the probability of his doing so. The
Secretary of war has leas patronage
than any other member of the cabinet,
but Secretary Lamont has not availed
himself even of the little at his dls

Why misrepresentation should be so
general in republican newspapers, as
to the number of fourth class postmas
ters appointed, when it is so easy to
| get the official figures is ono of those
j things that are d.tlleult to understand.
I The republican postmasters cannot bo
j ••fired out’’ too fast for the average
democrat and it would therefore when
viewed through party glasses be rnth
cc creditable than otherwise to Mr.
Maxwell had ho exceeded tho record
of Mr. Clarkson in putting in repub
licans four Years aw awn. hut. tin hm
j not coma up to that record by a long
shot, as will bo seen from the ligures
below. During the first two months
of the Harrison administration 5,104
fourth class postmasters were appoint
ed, while the number appointed during
the first two months of the pres
ent administration only reached 3,894,
of whicji 2,685. were made to till va
cancies caused by resignation and
death. So you see only 1.209 republi
cans were removed, against 3,496 dem
ocrats by Clarkson in the same period.

Special Correspondence.
As a rule, the sentiment of Ameri
can business men and of American
people generally is strongly in favor
of the payment of debts, but the last
Congress has flown squm-ely in the
face of this honorable sense of moral
duty in repudiating obligations of the
| Gove rnment which are of even higher
| weight and sanction than its bonded
I Under the act of Congress of Janit
■ ary 20, 1885, the French spoliation
claims were referred to the Court cf
Claims in order to determine whether
or not the Government was responsible
far their payment. After the fullest
argument and reargument by the so
licitor-general the court decided that
certain of these claims were released
to Franca by the treaty of 1800 in set
tlement of the demands of France upon
tho Government of the United States
for its failure to keep the treaty of
ilia, unuer wmcn J-ranee secured to
us our independence; that the release
of these claims, which were always
acknowledged by France, was a use of
private property for public purpose-,
and that under toe provision of the
Constitution giving just compensation
for private property so used such of
the claims as have been tried-and al
lowed aro valid obligation? of the
United States.
For a number of years, especially
when the government was derelict in
furnishing supplies as stipulated tin
der treaties, the Indians committed
| depredations on the settlers in the
West and South. Year after year, as
the neglect of the government to keep
its treaties with them continued, the
savages plundered and murdered these
frontiersmen who stood between them
and ‘•civilization.” Afterward a stat
ute was passed empowering the In
terior Department to examine each
case and report it to Congress with
recommendations as to the amount
duo. At great expense these sufferers
then filed the evidence to establish
their losses, and as a rule the depart
ment recommended payment of about
oae-half the actual loss sustained.
Finally those clains were reformed to
the Court of Claims by the act of
March 3 1891, which declars that
they shall bo a cha ge upon the Treat*
ury. and shall be paid out of the funds
due under the treaties to the tribes
which committed the depredations.
Additional evidence was taken at a
heavy expense; the cases were regu
larly tried before the court, and de
cision* have been rendooad that a few
hundred thousand dollars are due on
these claims. But the sutterers ob
i: V5 * ■/'- ■> ,-y' & 0*$$
■ i- M -
lained their judgments only to have
t iem repudiated by Congress.
Under different acts of Congress the
claims of loyal citizens in the South
for stores and supplies taken and used ]
by the Uuion forces for their subsis
t noe have been referred to the Court
of Claims, and upon full trial, with
the question of loyalty us a jurisdic
tional Issue, the court has judicially
d ilermlned that they are valid obliga- j
ti ms of tho United States to the ex
t nt of tome hundred thousands cf
All of these obligations were repu
j dialed by the last House, which refue
; cd to appropriate the necessary funds
t* pay 111 im.
In addition two judgments of the
Supreme Court of the United States
wore repudiated with unblushing ef
fron lorv.
Nov, the grave question comes homo
to every patriotic and thoughtful citi
ix 01 as to where tho lino is to bo drawn
b.-tween the judgment of a l-'ederal
e Hirt. under jurisdiction by act of
Congress, that a claim is a valid obli
gation of tho United States and the
bonded debt of the country. Is not
tho loyal man in the South whose sub
sistence was used by our army thirty
J years ago. when ascertained by tho
j court and without ono cent of interest,
i as much entitled to his money as ihe
j bondholder who has been gutting his
semi-annual interest in gold during
I that period? Is not the adjudicated
| claim of the American shipper and in
1 sever, which was acknowledged by
trance and used by our government
to pay tho price of American indepen
dence. tho use of which has been en
joyed without interest for ninety years
just as sacred an obligation as gold
bods bought with greenbacks when
gold pas at a premium of over 100 por
centum? The United States made
treaties with the Indian tribos, but
failed to furnish the supplies, and the
savages, by way of reprisal, depreda
ted on the citizens. Under the net of
Congress some of these claims have
been tried and allowed by the court.
Aro not these legal rights of the suf
ferer of the frontier to be bold as obli
gatory on the Congress representing
the people as those of tho capitalist ?
It is about time that those vaulted
economists a n d statesmen, Messrs.
Holman, of Indiana; Dockery, of Mis
souri; and Sayers, Texas, who as
rulers of the Committee on Appropri
ation!' dominate tho Houre, should see
where they are drifting. Is it repudi
ation and anarchy, or is it law and tho
protection of the sacred obligation of
private rights?. “Speak or die.’’
