The Mobile & Ohio Railroad
Co. has closed a contract with the
Cudahy Packing Co. for the erec
tion of a mammoth cold storage
plant at Montgomery,, Ala. The
central location of Columbus, al
most at the junction of the three
lines of this system, commends it as
a desirable location for such an en
terprise here. This city could be
made the distributing point for all
this territory. This is a little sug
gestion that it might pay the
Board of Trade to take up and look
into inasmuch as that organization
is not engaged in any work just
The pe ce negotiations at Paris
have been abruptly terminated by
the Spanish commissioners who
have withdrawn from the confer
ence and announced that they
would no longer continue it. Their
withdrawal followed the ultimatum
presented by the Americans which
demanded that the Spaniards cede
to this government the Philippines
upon the payment of a treaty cession
of twenty million dollars. The ter
mination of the negotiations will
in no way affect the result as the
Philippines will become an Ameri
can possession by force. Further
hostilities are not looked for as
Spain has not the means to contin
ue thewar and no power is backing
her in her stand against the United
Attorney-General Nash has just
rendered another one of his re
markable decisions. Speaking of
it the Clarion-Ledger says:
"The board of Supervisors of
Yazoo County have asked whether
or not the board of supervisors can
have the public roads in that coun
ty worked by contract by beats. The
attorney-general's response is to
the effect that the law does not give
boards of supervisors power lo have
public roads worked by contract by
beats. The Yazoo Board also
wished to know whether they have
a right to levy a special tax for this
purpose. As the law does not
give them the right to have the
roads worked in the manner above
specified, it goes without saying
that they would not have the right
to levy any tax. When a board
determines to work the public
roads, they must follow the direc
tions of the statutes. If the legis
lature had intended to give the
boards of supervisors the power to
single out any particular beat in
the county and work the road by
contract in that particular beat it
would have been very easy to have
The Quarantine Convention.
The Memphis Quarantine Con
vention has met and adjourned, but
it is extremely doubtful if it has
succeeded in accomplishing the pur
pose for which it was called. The
Memphis convention was intended
to bring together those whose
views upon the quarantine differed
in the hope that these differences
would be harmonized and as an
outcome of their deliberations a
measure would be evolved that
would deal with this important
question in a manner satisfactory
to all. It is extremely doubtful if
this result has been accomplished.
A recommendation will go to Con
gress and although it was adopted
by the necessary majority vote it is
well known that it is not what the
delegates wanted or desired. It is
a sort of compromise measure. The
truth is the advocates and oppon
ents of national quarantine are so
pronounced in their views that it
is impossible to bring them togeth
er upon this issue.-
The work of the quarantine con
vention is summarized in the fol
"i. That there be established
on a broad and comprehensive ba
sis a national bureau of public
health in the Department of the
Treasury of the United States; that
the administration of all the pub
lic health functions now exercised
by authority of the United States
be placed in charge of this bureau-
"2. That the sanitary authori
ties and commercial interests of the
several States of the Union be
brought into immediate relations
with the bureau and be given a
due share in the power and respon
sibilities of the central board
through the agency of an advisory
council consisting of one member
from each State to be appointed by
the authorities of the several
A national bureau of public
health may be a most excellent
thing but what the people of the
South want is a quarantine that
will prevent the introduction and
spread of yellow fever here. It is
only in the South that this ques
tion is now being discussed and it
is the South that is to be most af
fected by it. We have not heard
of any gfeat demand for the estab-
ment of such a bureau in the great
North or West. These sections
seem equal to the task of dealing
effectually with the epidemics pe
culiar to them. Then why bring
them into a question that affects
only a few Southern States? What
interest has Maine in a quarantine
intended to benefit Mississippi ?
Why divide the responsibilities
and powers of such a commission
unto forty-five states, thus giving
the great majority of power to
Northern and Western States who
have no sympathy or interest in
the sections affected ?
It is only in the South that it has
been demonstrated that the most
stringent measures and precautions
taken by State organizations to pre
vent the introduction and spread
of yellow fever are ineffective and
it is in the South that the opinion
is general that a strong and firm
quarantine 'maintained and oper
ated by the general government is
the only remedy.
BABY'S SMOOTH, FAIR SKIN
A Grateful Mother Writes this Letter -
Telia all about Her Troubles whan
Baby Broke out with Scrofula Sores.
"At tbo age of two months, my baby
began to have sores break out on his right
cheek. We used all the external ap
plications that we could think or hear of,
to no avail. The aores spread all over one
side of his face. Wo consulted a physi
cian snd tried his medicine, and In a week
the soro was gone. But to my surprise in
two weeks more another scrofulous look
ing aoro appeared on baby's arm. It
grew worse and worse, and when he was
three months old, I began giving him
Hood's Sarsaparilla. I also took Hood's
Barsaparilla, and before the first bottle
was finished, the aores were well and have
never returned. He is now four years old,
but he has never had any sign of those
scrofulous sores since he was cored by
Hood's Barsaparilla, for which I feel very
grateful. My boy owes his good health
, and smooth, fair skin to this great med
lcine." Mbs. 8. 8. Wrotkn, Farming

Settle The Demagogue.
The Jackson News sounds the
death knell of the demagogue and
pot-hunting politician in this State
in the following editorial. If there
ever was a time in the history of
the State when good men were
needed to guide and control its
destinies it is the present. The
The time has come in the histo
ry of this proud commonwealth
the home of Davis, Lamar, George
and Walthall for the people to
call a halt on the tttne serving,
pot-hunting politician. The dem
agogues whose sails are set to
catch every veering breeze that
will waft him into an official port,
the man that has well nigh ruined
the State, aiust be called down,
and the people must rebuke his in
solence and incompetence in such
a manner as to be a warning to his
fellow demagogues, such as will
make them hang their diminished
Next year there will be a gov
ernor to elect, and a legislature
chosen which m January, 1900,
will elect two United States sena
tors In filling these great trusts,
Mississippians should see to it that
no more white chips are played;
Mississippi has men and statesmen
the peers of any state in the union,
morally, intellectually and other
wise, and she should call such men
out of retirement and place them
in her posts of honor.
The demagogic cry that the gold
bugs are doing this and that, and
the other, is a cowardly effort to
divert attention from records that
smell to heaven, and deceives no
one. Nine-tenths of the free silver
press of the state has reprobated
official obliquity and malignant in
competency and protest that a
higher official standard shall be
set for governor and senator; that
next time blue chips shall be
The State needs more capital.
It needs more railroads, factories,
mills and people. The howl of
the demagogue for repudiation and
his cry against capital must be
checked. The way to do this is
for the press to continue to speak
out, and for the people to invite
the best and bravest Mississippians
to meet them and speak to them
on the issues of the State. For in
stance Jackson, Meridian, Vicks
burg, Greenville, Grenada, Natch
ez, Aberdeen, Brookhaven, West
Point and Columbus, and other
towns in the State, should invite
such Mississippians as Lowry,
Shands, Jones, Chrisman, Allen,
Sexton, Fox, Bowers, Williams,
Mayers, Powers, McLean, Cal
hoon and hundreds of others for
the State is full of such patriots,
to come to their towns and speak
to them on State issues.
The State canuot stand another
dose of demagogery. As McCool
says it is worse than yellow fever.
So pronounced is the opposition
to the annexation of the Philip
pines that the Anti-Imperialist So
ciety has been founded in which are
numered such men as Edward At
kinson and Andrew Carnegie. Pe
titions are being circulated for sig
natures against the movement and
these petitions will go to Congress.
A good play, well acted, is sure
to secure public favor in this city.

during her stay. She is very hand
some, attractive and tr-lented, and

journey through life will be one of
sublime happiness. Middlesbor
