wtticiil Organ of Attala County H. M. JOHNSON, rroirletir , Published Kvfrv Friday. $1 50 A YKAi:. ESTABLISHED ISfiC. mum Mississippi, decemser n m, W. O. Bradley, the lirst Repub lican Governor that Kentucky ever had, was inaugurated at Frankfort lat TiK'sdav. The nomination of Rufus V. Peckhani to he Associate Justice of the I;. S. Supreme Court, lias been confirmed bv the Senate. The Picayune says that the Mississippi riv?r so low at New Orleans that there is an influx of water from the gulf which makes the water in the river so brackish that it is unfit for human use ex cept for baths. It also says that sea fish are being caught in front of the citv. , It is reported from Washington that the Populist Senators have concluded not to prevent the Re publicans from reorganizing and taking controll of the Senate. They will not vote with the Republicans but will withdraw from the Senate chamber and allow them to elect their nominees to various offices of that bodv. We publish in this issue the or gin and meaning of the Monroe doctrine which is being so much talked about on account of the trouble brewing between England and Venezuela, and which trouble may involve our country in a war with England unless the matter between the two former countries is settled bv arbitrati-n. Congressman McCiann, of Chi cago, who was returned as elected to the present Congress, has vol untarily surrendered his ccrtifiicate of election to the National House on the ground that he believes his opponent f airly elected. Of course it is superfluous to say that Mr. JIcGann is a Democrat. We hope the Republicans who were never known to surrender anything no matter how defective the title, will learn a lesson from thi? ample. rood cx- We see from the Times-Demo-rrat that the l'opulites and Repub licans of Louisiana have united, and will at the proper time put a full mixed ticket in the held against the Democrctic ticket in the coming State election next spring. If there is anything in principles governing political par ties we would ask what communi ty of interest can there be between the Populist and the Republican parties except it be hatred for the Democratic party and hunger for office. A piece copied from the Joyce Enterprise in Times-Democrat truly says: "The principles of the two parties are irreconcila bly inconsistent. The Populists are white and believe in white su premacy, the Repulicans believe in negroes and equal rights. The Populists are free-traders, the Re publicans are protectionists; the J'opulists are bimctallists, the Re publicans believe in the gold stand ard., yet they have joined hands for for letter or for worse as they did in North Carolina." So as they can't run together on principles it must be hatred for the Democratic party that lu-i cemented them to gether, and no party can exist Jong on malice and ill will: there fore the alliance being an i.nhoJy pne it must come to nought.

I'.ditor of tlie Clarion-Ledger: While the Democratic party is quietly looking ahead fur a man who can be relied upon as a cool, calm leader of the party in-1 Nob, I will say that no better man can be found in the I'nited States than E. C. Walthall, ol Mississippi. He is able. cool, calm and deter mined, Will do what is right, and cannot be influenced to do any thing which does not commend itself to his judgment. The American people could not select a safer standard-bearer in iNob than Walthall. He is just such a man as the best interests of our country demand East, West, North and South. . The National Convention of the great Democrat ic party could make no mistake in nominating him for the Presidency If he were elected, he would know no East. West, North nor South, but would look to the best interest of our whole country, without re gard to section. Like the Romans required of Caesar's wife, he is not only., pure "but above suspicion. The brave, gallant, incorruptible Walthall; the gentleman, soldier andfstatcsman. Yours truly, J. C. Claku;. Every Mississippian's heart will swell with pride on reading the above high and just tribute paid to one of the State's favorite sons. Gen. Walthall is not only the pride of this State, but of the South, and greatly honored and loved through out the whole Union, and no truer, abler or safer man could be plac ed at the head of this great nation than he, and if the passion and prejudice of the North against the South has sufficiently died out to admit of the Democratic party- coming South of the Mason and Dixon line to secure a head for its ticket it would make no mistake in selecting Gen. Walthall, because the South would give him 156 votes in the electoral college, and with the Pacific and Western States and Illinois and Indiana, the ticket would be triumphant. We should state that the author of the above letter is the president 1 of the Mobile & Ohio R. R., and is one of the best known and best posted men in the United States. The news from Washington is that unless Congress does some thing very soon to relieve the ccn stant drain on the treasury that another bond issue will become absolutely necessary in the near future. The gold reserve is now down to nearly $75,000,000, and the heavy withdrawals looked for in January and February will bring the reserve down lower prob ably than ever before, and some thing must be done, so says the officials at the head of the financial department. What Congress will do to save us from going further in debt is yet one of the unsolved mysteries. Col. A. C. Hargrove, a distin guished lawyer of Ttiskaloosa, Ala., and brother of Rishop Hargrove of the M. E. Church, South, com mitted suicide at his home last week. Failing health had unbal anced his mind.
